jonace, surely it was our Brendan who spilt the beans to the press . He didn't demonstrate much integrity, talking to Scottish media re. Mc Ginn before AEK match.

Old man Chris

1.) 13 Aug 2018 00:13:37
He was asked a question! Funny how the press ask him but it's heads down n no awkward questions at them 🤣 get a grip omc 🙈.


2.) 13 Aug 2018 03:17:08
Brendan has signed 3 decent players, the rest shouldn't be at Celtic. His results in Europe are embarrassing and both Lennon and Strachan did much better. Brendan is in my opinion starting to think he is bigger than Celtic and if I'd have my way I'd thank him, let him leave and get Lennon back. I don't trust Brendan to spend wisely and I don't think the board do either.


3.) 13 Aug 2018 07:30:42
What utter drivel.

He signs Edouard, Morgan and Bain during the summer and you say the board don’t trust him? They missed out on McGinn, yeah it’s a bit of a sore one but highly doubt that it’s down to them not trusting him.

We should be looking forward and hoping we get through tomorrow night.

Lennon would be a complete step back.


4.) 13 Aug 2018 07:46:21
Also, don’t think for a second that he thinks he is bigger than the club, however I do think he believes Celtic are bigger than what we allow ourselves to be and should match his ambition. He wants to compete in Europe yet has that defence to deal with? He has done since he came in, with the exception of Hendry and Gamboa, I won’t even include Comperr as he has hardly kicked a ball. Hendry is still to show that he is up to it and hell knows what’s going on with Gamboa but that’s up to BR to make the call.

Sinclair was player of the season in his first year, BR can’t be at fault for him losing form.

Moussa has been a great signing regardless of injury.

Edouard looks the real deal.

Ntcham is getting better week, in week out.

Morgan need to see what happens with him.

Bain looks a tidy addition.

Comperr is a total dud.

Kouassi looks total gash.

Gamboa shows promise but that’s compared to Lustig, something must have happened with him.

Musonda was a disaster.

Hayes long term injury.

Roberts long term injury.

You could go through each managers term and see who they signed that were good / bad.


5.) 13 Aug 2018 08:22:28
Yeah the Celtic plc have a rich history of not buying when in the postion of strength. Still some cover up for them. How Brendan is getting the blame is unbelievable. It's like people don't actually follow Celtic but will make a comment anyway.


6.) 13 Aug 2018 10:11:50
If this was a one of situation regarding standing still then maybe you could see the point of the board defenders. Sadly, it’s not. It’s a pattern that has been repeated all of my life as a supporter. Waiting until this stage and still no new players for our awful defence is nothing short of incompetence.

McGinn was a symptom of this approach. Dithering, penny pinching ego trip from Lawell. Boyata, first chance he gets wants away, didn’t anybody see that coming? He’s now shamefully pulled the bad back card to miss the ganecagainst AEK and we are without Ajer too. Hendry isn’t the answer and to rely on him is unfair tonys and the boy himself.

We could be out against a team we are better than, or should have been if we had got players in early. There is no guarantees in football except if you stand still you go back. If we crash out then the blame for that to me lies at the boardroom.

After a double treble, CL money, season tickets sold and a waiting list they had no excuse for them to continue the dithering cheapskate approach. Every now and again I start to believe we will move on and get quality in to sort it at least improve us defensively. Again and again this proves to be a pipe dream. Blaming Rogers for thecsutuation we are in is ridiculous. He gave them a list, they gave him nothing to help us qualify. That’s the scandal here.

Saturdays team selection was wrong and showed we need more qualitybwhen we leave out first team players.

I actually still think we can beat this mob but it will be all the more difficult due to having to take them in weaker than we finished last year. That’s not on and if we do crash out I am clear in my mind where the responsibility for that lies and it ain’t at Rogers door. If he had signed a couple of Comper’s again then he would have been het but he has not one addition.

Another self inflicted blow. To go on the shelf with the countless others where our boards fear of investing when in front derails us. We have a fight this year for the first time, and failing to tool up for it is a dereliction of duty. £60m down the drain through complacency is a farce. Trying to deflect that failure onto Rogers is avoiding the real historical truth about the lack of balls our boards have always had.

Lawell more than most must be hoping for a result. His strategy is front and centre and he bares the ultimate responsibility as he is the man who makes the deals, or in his case, hasn’t. Poor judgement. A final thought, had McGinn been in instead of the more expensive Kouassi would have been better and anybody who disagrees with that is kidding themselves on.


7.) 13 Aug 2018 13:29:34
Fantastic post Majic that won't go down well with the far to 'faithful through and through brigade'anyone who is surprised at this board must have been in hiding for many a year

Can't believe how quick some people are to stick a knife in Brendan. Shame on you. HH.


9.) 13 Aug 2018 19:33:22
Can’t believe some of the pish being posted on here. Seems there are many who are even more gullible than the sevvies. The orcs have the guts of 20 million in shareholder loans, a TOP share order to sort out, an investigation into the application for a UEFA licence, they can’t sell their new humming shirts, a squad full of dross, an under 18s manager and yet all the Scottish press can talk about is our lack of additions to a squad that has won every domestic competition put in front of them. On top of that, Brendan came out on Saturday and said there was no issue between him and the board and he is loving every minute of the job. Wake up, you’re falling for this rubbishe hook, line and sinker. We’re in a better place than we’ve been for a long time.


10.) 13 Aug 2018 20:59:51
Remember when this was a transfer rumours page,2-2 tomorrow, Forrest, Eddy.


11.) 13 Aug 2018 21:04:48
Eddy supposed to be unfit for tomorrow, Griffiths and Forrest.


12.) 13 Aug 2018 23:05:24
Some people reckon that some of our better buys were from P L and son .
I wonder who was responsible for Musonda, I know many on here were very excited at the thought we were getting him .
One quick glance at him and I who would be far from an expert, thought he was far to lights& under developed.
I don't know how anyone could stand over spending money on loan for him.


13.) 14 Aug 2018 00:05:51
can mcginn play at centreback?

nah

get over him and move on

We all slated Boyata - then he has a few good games, plays against engerland at worldcup and now he wants away - Jozo - inconsistent, injury prone and can't play on plastic. Ajer and Hendry - too young and a risk playing together. comperr just no. This is where we MUST strengthen and NOW. Our defence is and has been a nightmare in waiting. I know this, you know this, Brendan knows this, the board knows this - so why have they not bought anyone ready to go.

we never have and never will splurg on players - so mcginn/ midfielder was always a no for me - UNTIL defence was sorted.

yeah armstrong away - we have christie and allan back - both spl quality. Roberts wasnt getting a game over forrest.


14.) 14 Aug 2018 18:42:56
Only a thorough bred person would talk about signing McGinn before Kuoassi . Now I know P L was slow bringing McGinn over the line and maybe guilty of believing reports of McGinn only signing for Celtic. I am pretty sure we had Kuoassi bought a full year before losing out on McGinn.


 

 

10 Aug 2018 22:35:41
D D is too shrewd to make a public intervention, the chances are that if DD does step in, he will be telling B R to pack his bag .
D D doesn't like personal criticism and criticism of Board he takes personally.

Old man Chris

1.) 10 Aug 2018 23:15:06
D. D can bolt and play golf full time.


2.) 10 Aug 2018 23:17:44
DD should pack his own bags BR has done more for Celtic in 2 years than that man ever will.


3.) 11 Aug 2018 08:14:34
Stan it was that man, as you put it, that brought BR and Oneil in. So again your wide of the mark.


4.) 11 Aug 2018 08:55:02
In your opinion i am Kev, not so much to others. So DD being the largest shareholder decides who our Manager is? The rest of the Board have no day? nonsense, what gives him that right? Anywho i couldn't care less about DD i won't die remembering anything he has done for Celtic.


5.) 11 Aug 2018 09:01:29
He got BR and O'Neill yet the rest, Lenny, Mowbray, Strachan, Deila he's no taking any credit for? Did he leave that decision making to the Board? Aye right. More flaws than Braveheart.


 

 

04 Jan 2018 23:50:50
Its amazing to think we have bought one centre half this window and will have to buy at least one more . In my opinion over the last couple of years we seemed to buy a number of what appeared at the time to be quite good centre halves, Eric, Boyota, Jozo and young Ajer but really apart from Ajer, who we are still not sure about and maybe Boyata who we are less sure about, they haven't progressed. Buying players can be such a gamble.

Old man Chris

1.) 05 Jan 2018 00:52:26
Erik is the best centre half we half imo. but unfortunately he had to play beside efe in the early BR days. an injury has stopped him changing opinion.


2.) 05 Jan 2018 15:18:42
If u think that lump of wood is our best cb, then it shows how much we are lacking quality in the cb postion.


3.) 05 Jan 2018 16:37:12
I cannot agree that Erik is out best CH, bhoy1der. I don't even think he's our third best. Flustered and nervy far too easily, gets pulled about and bullied too much for my liking and struggles with pacy forwards. Nice big guy, but I think Ajer is already far better than Erik. HH🙂.


4.) 06 Jan 2018 01:29:47
have to agree. met and chatted with him several times and he is a decent guy. For BRs system he is too wee, too slow, his bottle and desire went a long time ago. Best thing for him is to move on now and start again after us blocking so many of his transfers in the past. Best of luck to him and I'm sure he will do a turn for another team somewhere.

The funniest post on Celtic rumours has to be the helpless Rangers2012 fan who criticised the Celtic Board for not spending enough money during the R D era .
Imagine does he not remember how the old club died through spending too much and now the new club is heading the same way with in excess of £10m over spend each year and less and less Directors prepared to exchange debt for shares.

Old man Chris

1.) 28 May 2019 18:17:34
They'll never learn! They'll lie, rob, cheat and steal to try and stop the 10.


2.) 28 May 2019 18:37:31
They wanted D. United to lose in the play off as their part of the " Hater clubs" who voted to relegate us. Relegated and Demoted are used instead of Liquidated😂😂.


3.) 28 May 2019 20:06:22
They know that every time they are liquidated they can return as the 'same club' because of the rule breakers and charlatans at the SPFL and their mates in the media who continue the biggest lie ever told.


 

 

24 May 2019 23:25:49
Well Thank God in about 18 hours the Cup Final that seems not to interest so many Celtic fans will be over and done .
We can in 18 hrs sit down, if sober enough, and discuss all possible possibilities for our new Manager . Winners and failures from various parts of England and Europe and further afield are all in the field . At the end of the day it will likely be Moyes or Lennon .
MSSM has built up the hopes of the gullible only for big bad PL to destroy the hopes . we are reminded almost daily about this summer's transfer window is the most important ever . Funny I can't remember one that wasn't . We will have some joy and much disappointment all through the window

Tomorrow's match will be very tough, our defence is usually very tight, although Bain has been beaten a few times recently . If we don't make a mistake (s) at back we should be able to get a goal or two and win our treble treble.

Old man Chris

1.) 25 May 2019 01:36:13
Chris I'm beginning to think your at wind ups now.


2.) 25 May 2019 01:36:23
If our players are ready for a battle, which I think they will be cos lennon knows all too well the tactics levien will adopt, then we should have enough to win the match. Lennon and captain courageous will have us pumped up and ready to destroy the jambos. 3-1 is my prediction.


3.) 25 May 2019 06:33:34
Chris explain why it doesn't interest all Celtic fans am baffled.


4.) 25 May 2019 07:00:14
Trolling again Chris?

Can't wait for today's game. On the edge of something truly special.

2-0 to the Hoops.


5.) 25 May 2019 07:01:30
Ffs 🙈.


6.) 25 May 2019 07:48:09
All Celtic fans are aware I'm sure of the significance of the treble. But surely we are allowed to talk about prospective managers etc. As these are important factors in our 4th treble😉. Had enough doom and gloom years supporting Celtic, im enjoying these ones👍.


7.) 25 May 2019 09:16:44
Ur bottle cracked yet welshy.


8.) 25 May 2019 09:27:56
I think a few people are baffled by Old Man Chris. I've read this site every day for years and apart from the odd troll here and there I've not been annoyed at a fellow poster like I have over the last few days with Old Man Chris.
Show a bit of respect for what the site is and the work the Ed's put in that make people want to come on just for a read or to post on ANYTHING Celtic related. People don't come on here to be told what they can talk about and when.
Rant over. I'm confident we will get the business done today. I hope everyone at the game or watching at home or in the pub with family and friends has a great day and enjoys the celebrations that will hopefully follow.
HH.


9.) 25 May 2019 09:37:23
Gotta say I love the Regi Blinker avatar, Jim! Possibly the most under-rated player in that great side?


10.) 25 May 2019 10:22:17
Quite possibly cavalcanti mate 😁. A cult hero of mine for sure. Brilliant at times, awful at others. He split opinion no doubt, will always remember during the stopping the ten going to get his name and number on my shirt and two auld fellas behind me pissing themselves. I was only a young at the time, used to sit and watch football Italia on a weekend and Davids had just signed for Juve. I thought we were on to our own wee 'Pitbull'. Alas.


11.) 25 May 2019 10:37:27
Chris why have you singled out Scott Bain regarding conceding a few goals recently, he has conceded 6 goals in 22 domestic games in 2019 one a penalty and the one Motherwell scored. oldkilly.


12.) 25 May 2019 11:14:36
I think what OMC is saying is that amongst the constant speculation about transfers and managers over the last few days, it’s actually quite hard to find the posts that mention the cup final or the possibility of a treble treble. That would suggest they’re more interested in the speculation than they are in the actual football. There’s something strange about that. I can genuinely say I have no interest in the transfer window or the next manager at the moment as I just want to enjoy one of my favourite days of the year, cup final day. Hopefully, we’ll pick up the trophy and we’ll celebrate and then once the dust has settled, I’ll wait for an announcement from the club.


13.) 25 May 2019 12:13:03
Regi Blinker. To even compete Jacki as a wing-back is some doing. He was a feckin' disappointed winger. Love it .


14.) 25 May 2019 12:15:11
PS did they literally piss themselves, as I imagine? Wouldn't be the first time, and not regi's fault nor yours.


15.) 25 May 2019 13:06:56
COYBIG , Their seems to be many on here who don't to see what is actually happening . I never make any more attempt to stop anyone posting, but like everyone I feel i am entitled to praise or criticise any post . I very much feel there has been far too many repeat posts re our next manager, playing into hands of MSSM who always wants to divide and cause upheaval amongst our support . I make no apology for preferring to discus forthcoming SCF week before final. .
The people who have spent the week talking about new manager and players, will be the very people, who God forbid should Celtic lose, will spend next week having a post mortem on result . I have heard some who want Celtic to lose to make sure Lennon didn't get job.


16.) 25 May 2019 13:01:58
More than likely. Looking back I'd probably be the same now. Everybody else with Larsson on their taps and there's me asking for Blinker. 🤦🏼‍♂️.


17.) 25 May 2019 13:34:42
OLDKILLY I mentioned Bain has been beaten a few times in recent games .
I posted that because I thought all Celtic supporters would have been aware of his tremendous record in his earlier games . We all know he conceded only 3 goals in his first 20 games ( one was by cheating ) and has conceded 3 goals in last 2 games .

Buster, I am sorry my posts annoyed you, I am also annoyed at your post picking on me . You are not a regular poster. Yet when you do. U accuse me of not respecting the ed's . I can assure you I have every respect for these very fine people who give up a lot of their and vert expertly run and control the finest Celtic forum that I have had the pleasure of coming across .


 

 

23 May 2019 21:48:51
I have just remembered we have a cup final on Saturday . Not just a Cup Final but the deciding match of our unprecedented treble treble .
Celtic fans aren't really interested, they post about who they want and who they don't want as Manager . They post weird foreign names as they must be best, even if they never put a foot in Scotland, the same way players for next season. Our fans are sure some player in Hollandd Germany Italy etc will certainly be better than those who are here, playing ok, or trying to adopt to the unique Scottish playing rules and atmosphere.

This all fine and dandy, but really we should be spending this week getting into the mood for S C F, we expect and hope N Lennon and players are concentrating fully on preparation for final .
The MSSM want to muddle up the minds of players and Celtic fans . They report every day about some one coming in, a couple days later Celtic are missing out on player that only MSSM had linked us and our fans are diappointed . The same with Manager, we don't need this idle nonsense now, some may argue that Celtic club is too professional to allow MSSM to derail us .
Fair play it may not do us harm but certainly the constant speculation cannot help us or do us any good.

Old man Chris

1.) 23 May 2019 22:47:07
Sorry Chris forgot we are not allowed to talk about the future of our club and who will lead us next season!

It's a forum, each and every person can post what they like. If it upsets you that much don't read it.


2.) 24 May 2019 04:24:35
Remember everyone, this could be the very first time we win the cup three times in a row then the treble treble.


3.) 24 May 2019 04:54:44
Donny1972 I agree and I don't think anyone has forgotten. Fans are still allowed to be excited about who next manager is going to be and I think the uncertainty is a serious topic for discussion on a forum of all places. It's not right though when people try to dictate what topics get posted, everyone is equally allowed to talk about any celtic related topic mate.


4.) 24 May 2019 05:18:17
Yes I agree, but as each manager we have ever had said is that we deal with the next game, that mean's we deal with the final, then at 16.46pm on Saturday we can start talking about the new manager and the direction of the club.


5.) 24 May 2019 14:37:28
Phillim, I am sorry, I thought I too have a right to post what I liked, but seeming you think not .
I am sorry if stressing the need to prepare as best as possible for treble treble is not a good idea for u.


 

 

22 May 2019 00:03:27
Fair play to N Lennon, despite some doubters he managed to fulfill one of his promises and get Dembele on the pitch and played him for 45 minutes without any injury or harm . Him Johnstone and Henderson reminded me of days gone by when the Managers let us see a wee bit of the future .

The three youngsters were excellent .
I thought Ralston had a very good first half hour but seemed to be out on his feet far too early . Is this the step up from reserve, underage football too big a gap . Would a run of half a dozen first team games in 6 weeks in new season, help him?

Old man Chris

1.) 22 May 2019 00:37:15
He's not long back from injury Chris that may be a part of his lack of fitness also.


2.) 22 May 2019 07:42:30
Sorry to say but I don't think Ralston will ever make it at Celtic but I would love him to be prove me wrong.

We definitely need a first choice quality right back because Lustig has been finished for over 2 years now.


3.) 22 May 2019 08:33:01
He just needs games and to work on his final ball.


4.) 22 May 2019 09:52:27
Ralston will be a good solid right back. He won't be a marauder like KT but he will defend well and that's his job.


5.) 22 May 2019 09:52:40
Thought Ralston was poor, the free transfer from Caley showed up him up

Simply not good enough and should be moved on.


6.) 22 May 2019 10:11:07
Most Celtic supporters want to see Ralston develop like KT and form a long-term full back partnership, but for one reason or another he has not managed a long enough run in the team to establish himself.
On top of that we have seen guys like Gamboa and Toljan brought in to deputize for Lustig ahead of him and we have signed the American duo Gutman and Perez who I think can both play full-back, so once again he may have to prove himself to a new manager in the summer?


7.) 22 May 2019 15:24:57
I also think Ralston needs a run in the team to show what he can do. As far as never being good enough for Celtic as some seem to think it is too early to say and i seem to remember reading on here the same type of thing being said about Forrest and others.


 

 

07 May 2019 22:30:24
Barcelona are always regarded as a very good team with their defence sometimes a little bit fragile .
A wee bit fragile tonight they were disgracefully bad . If a Celtic defence conceded goals like Liverpool's 3rd and 4th, their would be calls for not only Manager's head but also P L.

Old man Chris

1.) 08 May 2019 06:10:05
You don't think Barcelona fans will be wanting Valverde out?

A couple of months may not be long enough, but haven't never really had a proper D of F before it makes sense to me that we should experiment to see how the relationship between D o F works with manager and works with CEO . If we find both can work then we should continue.

we should concentrate on bringing on our young players, & buying outstanding youth . 9 and 10 in a row are a must and having created history we can then hope to progress further in Europe . Under current European se-ups it's virtually impossible for a team like Celtic playing in a league like SPL to constantly achieve any type of European success.
