Just read online that uefa have said that the Brazilian was eligible to play against us.


1.) 04 Aug 2021 19:59:15
A ban is a ban but there's prob a loop hole they've made to save there embarrassment.

2.) 04 Aug 2021 20:04:04
I thought it was certainty that Midtjylland would be found guilty today.
I know Marco you weren’t as confident and you were right.

3.) 04 Aug 2021 20:08:36
And as if by majic, there's the loophole .

4.) 04 Aug 2021 20:33:03
I just thought that there were too many teams who would have to be compensated and it would have turned uefa into a laughing stock so I kinda thought that they would push this under the rug and look for some loophole.

5.) 04 Aug 2021 20:33:52
Buzz I really really wished I was wrong though but uefa is corrupt as the rest of them.

6.) 04 Aug 2021 21:53:31
Where is the corruption in us getting knocked out fair and square I would of been embarrassed to go through that way again. We were out played in extra time when it mattered end of.



03 Aug 2021 11:21:00
Does anyone know what time Harts medical is?




30 Jul 2021 15:21:03
Big Ange has said we are not signing a goalkeeper yet he wants to strengthen other areas first.


1.) 30 Jul 2021 15:31:26
That’s terrible news, I’d rather we stuck with ralston and got a decent keeper in. No point having a decent right back and keepers that let in every shot .

2.) 30 Jul 2021 15:43:16
Probably due to not knowing our European destination yet.
I knew the defeat on Wednesday would set us back a few weeks in the transfer market.

{Ed007's Note - Where did Ange say we are not signing a 'keeper? "If I think we can improve in that position then it's an area we'll look at but there are a number of priorities. We still need 2 or 3 significant additions to the team."
Celtic spoke to Tottenham this morning and have either spoken to his agent again already or will at some point today/tomorrow.}

3.) 30 Jul 2021 16:05:52
I like the “significant additions to the team”
That should mean players that are better than we’ve already got and will start.
Hopefully our new signings are worth the wait.

4.) 30 Jul 2021 16:08:03
I think he will get really sick and tired of the same old questions and 'digs' pretty sharpish and his patience will be tested to the point of generalization and bog standard statements to the Sevconian media.

5.) 30 Jul 2021 16:49:53
He never said that just watched it, but a bit like last year we are always working away, that was lennons war cry and very little happens.

6.) 30 Jul 2021 17:21:04
Molly we've signed 3 first team ready players and a couple of squad players who can make an impact this season. I think its a bit early to be giving it that he's the same as Lennon.

Ange has called out the board twice already in his short time here, he's no Lennon. He's getting his own players in but the world is complicated with C.V. and brexit. Time will show he's done a good job so far.

7.) 30 Jul 2021 17:51:08
Although Joe Hart comes with very good pedigree and experience, in recent years he's developed a reputation for being error prone. Maybe we're hoping Stevie Woods can get the best out of him again and see him as a safe option after what's happened with Barkas. Personally I see it as a quick win to allow us to focus efforts on other positions.

8.) 30 Jul 2021 18:14:00
'Number of priorities' is right but I'd say it's far more than 2 or 3 outfield players plus a GK.

9.) 30 Jul 2021 18:27:04
He's no lennon agreed but how many times did lennon say we're working away and very little happens, that's the similarity and let's hope we do get them in, iam 100% behind ange.

10.) 30 Jul 2021 18:43:28
Do we actually think Ange is going to tell the MSSM what players and positions we are going to get - I thinks it’s already clear - Ange will not suffer fools with them or anyone else.

11.) 30 Jul 2021 19:10:32
Let's have a good look at the 'first 15' when this transfer window closes.

If its not night and day from the end of last season - call the Samaritans. 😨.

12.) 30 Jul 2021 19:19:43
He's not going to out his goalies as dunk when he needs them tomorrow night. He won't ever through his players under a bus.

13.) 30 Jul 2021 21:23:19
That's what I meant Ed he was prioritising other areas first that was my take on it.

{Ed007's Note - You said that Ange had said we aren't signing a 'keeper, he never said that. How do you know that "but there are a number of priorities. We still need 2 or 3 significant additions to the team." doesn't mean a GK?}

14.) 31 Jul 2021 06:40:36
The whole back 5 need replacing. that's why we got knocked out off the champions league. sorry for being brutally honest here. I can see Hearts putting real pressure on us tonight. I hope to be really proven wrong. H. H.

15.) 31 Jul 2021 07:12:01
Hit the nail on the head there Auf. It would be wrong to name any specific position but Goalkeeper especially being an isolated position in the side.

16.) 31 Jul 2021 11:14:37
I think I said we are signing a keeper yet he had othe priorities first.

17.) 31 Jul 2021 15:23:13
"Big Ange has said we are not signing a goalkeeper yet he wants to strengthen other areas first" that's your words Marco. Your putting 2 and 2 together and getting 84.

18.) 31 Jul 2021 15:41:52
We need an experienced GK even if it's for a year to help us on our rebuild. We should sign Dwight Gayle of Newcastle he'd score 25 + up here and he won't play at Newcastle. Another Newcastle player I like is LB Paul dummit.



26 Jul 2021 21:12:24
We have matched anderlecht valuation of Buta apparently.


1.) 26 Jul 2021 22:16:43
Do you know anything about him Marco, can he do a job for us?

2.) 26 Jul 2021 23:49:01
It's Antwerp he plays for and they have already bought his replacement apparently.

3.) 27 Jul 2021 01:20:40
He looks good from what I’ve watched tonight but I thought bolingoli looked a player at Vienna so what ever you’s do don’t listen to me hahaha, I’m not daft enough to watch YouTube highlight reels but I watched 3 extended highlights of games he was MOTM, he’s rapid really strong and whips in a good cross but the other 70 odd games he’s played he could of been sh#te.

4.) 27 Jul 2021 08:34:37
I have no clue if the boy is good or not I just read on the Internet that we have matched their valuation.

5.) 27 Jul 2021 10:30:51
Another who is good going forward but can be suspect defensively.



28 Jun 2021 10:20:26
Has the Croation CB signed yet I read somewhere the other day rthe deal is almost complete has it moved on any yet?


1.) 28 Jun 2021 14:44:08
Read this morning we are in for Baldock, Sheff Utd fullback, 28. Probably just another to add to the list but you never know.

2.) 28 Jun 2021 21:25:37
Ok cheers mate.

29 Jul 2021 22:54:28
I have a question for Saturday, should we start with eddy, ajeti or abada upfront for me I would leave eddy on the bench and play Abada yo front the bhoy is rapid and a decent finisher from what I have seen on you tube.


1.) 29 Jul 2021 22:59:07
Anyone but Eddy. I wouldn't give him another shirt, ever.

2.) 30 Jul 2021 01:08:20
My team for Sat and until we get more signings in would be

Urhoghide, Starfelt, Welsh, Motgomery
Abada, Turnbull, Shaw, McGregor

Bain, Kyogo, Forrest, Connell, O'Conner, Ralston, Murray, Taylor, Henderson, Rogic

No time or place for any player wanting to leave.

3.) 30 Jul 2021 07:23:40
How does urhodide deserve to be in ahead of ralston and Montgomery ahead of taylor. if kyogo is fit get him in.

4.) 30 Jul 2021 07:29:11
I wouldn't even have him on the bench after the last 2 games, ad rather have a youngster that tries over him.

5.) 30 Jul 2021 08:26:58
Awful team 😂.

6.) 30 Jul 2021 09:16:19
Eddy should be dealing with insomniacs as he looks like he is half asleep before he walks onto the park and goze into a trance when playing.

7.) 30 Jul 2021 10:08:39
I am not a fan of Ralston but he played OK against the Danes and if we don't have another RB in then play him against Hearts.

8.) 30 Jul 2021 10:10:16
The only youngster that could go in in Moffat or the young bhoy I think he scored a hatrick again Stirling University it. might have been a double ut I would play abada up front.

9.) 30 Jul 2021 10:19:28
Sounds gd johnbhoy71.

10.) 30 Jul 2021 12:38:00
Scored a screamer against them and a really good one the week before the bhoy looks to be coming along well.



29 Jul 2021 10:31:45
I have been thinking about this since last night and I maybe over reacting a bit, but maybe us not playing in Europe at all this season may actually be a good thing, it will give time for Ange to bed his squad in and not having to worry about Europe for this season and give us a full tilt at trying to regain the league.


1.) 29 Jul 2021 10:55:53
Aye but we might end up playing on a Thurs which is worse.

2.) 29 Jul 2021 10:58:54
Yip losing millions in revenue is a good thing. Were is the money coming from to buy the Australian Mowbary players.

3.) 29 Jul 2021 11:13:10
Auf the guy's been in for two games and you're coming up with derogatory nicknames? C'mon.

4.) 29 Jul 2021 11:35:56
Derogatory calm down. He done nothing to change that game last night. He can moan all he wants about transfers. Still doesn't take away from the fact he played inverted fullbacks with Taylor/ Ralston. He still watched Eddie do nothing and didn't change it. He watched the midfield get run over and never changed it. Good manager see problems and react.

5.) 29 Jul 2021 11:39:13
He hasn't got any other fbs abd he was chasing tbe game, if he'd taken eddy off some would gave asked why when he needed a goal, no win situation.

6.) 29 Jul 2021 11:43:37
You can't judge the guy till it's his team that he builds. He needs backing which McKay said would happen. The league is our main priority this season.

7.) 29 Jul 2021 11:52:46

You should calm down. Who else could have he played if he did not play Taylor and Ralston. I cannot remember us signing any new full backs. If he had taken Eddy off you probably would have slaughtered him for doing that.

So go and take a chill pill and give the man a chance, makes me wonder if you are a Klan member in disguise.

Hail Hail

8.) 29 Jul 2021 11:59:01
Although he had no choice, playing a back four of that standard in a competitive game let alone a champions league qualifier, for a club of Glasgow Celtic's stature, is criminal as well as embarrassing. For four years on the trot now, we've witnessed the same old scenario. Negative pre-planning every season. If there's communication between staff and board, do the board actually take it aboard. As someone has said earlier, we like to think of ourselves as a champions league club. Not any more sadly. This situation has to be addressed, or we'll be in this situation forevermore.

9.) 29 Jul 2021 12:00:16
I think what Auf means by inverted is the full backs were playing too central at times, which I agree with, our full back were far to narrow at times which I don't understand the reason why. Maybe they were dropping in to cover the press from Welsh and Murray?

10.) 29 Jul 2021 12:19:28
Auf who could of been brought on that would of made a difference, who would you have brought on that would of changed the game? Ajeti came on done hee haw. It was clear he didn't make changes cause he obviously knew they wouldn't have mad a difference, which they didn't. People need to get a grip, was a bad result but doesn't sit at the managers door for me! This is purely on the board for not moving faster in the market, every Celtic fan and their granny knew what needed to happen at Celtic this year, Ange knew what needed to be done with regards to players coming, only people that thought we had enough for the game were the board, isn't the first time they have let a manager down.

11.) 29 Jul 2021 12:44:35
That's the problem we don't have any game changers in our subs no one who can make a huge impact when we need it. It's not Ange fault that we are in this position it's all done to the board and they need to be held accountable.

12.) 29 Jul 2021 12:52:14
Not this year last year and the two years before.

13.) 29 Jul 2021 13:42:42
Your all missing the point. Aussie Mowbray has one system. No good manager just sticks with 1 plan.
He's trying to get poor fullbacks doing a job they can't do. Football is about putting a team out to do a job with the tools you have.
He could have through Ajeti up front with Eddie. Could went to a back 3/ 5. He could have shored up the midfield. He done nothing. Extra time was the worse football Celtic have played for year's and i include last season in it. Good managers have more than 1 trick in there locker.
We were better than them over 180 minutes (so players not his are irrelevant) but when we needed help from the sideline we had nothing.

14.) 29 Jul 2021 14:18:39
Auf, your writing total nonsense.
To name call our manager after a couple of games is disgraceful.
I don’t want to read on here, our fans name calling Ange, get a grip.
I don’t understand how you can say Ange is a one trick pony.
He changed the system in Extra Time and put two up front.
I felt Celtic controlled large parts of the midfield in the 90 minutes last night but I admit our squad should be fitter and hopefully they will get fitter over time.

15.) 29 Jul 2021 15:44:18
Buzz Bomb 10

Totally agree with you. It looks like this guy Auf1888 is a very sad person. Looks like he is the type of person who is never happy with anything.
Let’s hope that we can ram his disgraceful comments down his throat when Ange signs the players he wants and turns things around, which I am sure he will.
Totally agree with you about not wanting to read this guy’s negative comments on here.

Hail Hail



28 Jul 2021 22:08:58
I thought young Murray was outstanding tonight, he looked the best defender we had on the park. Maybe he made 1 or 2 mistakes but overall he got pass marks, Eddy was a total failure and hopefully he is gone tomorrow as he won't be missed I just hope Brighton don't withdraw their bid.


1.) 28 Jul 2021 22:18:59
Welsh and Murray were brilliant considering their inexperience and the positions they play in because centre backs normally get better with age and experience.
They both have big futures ahead of them.
Ralston was the best Celtic player on the pitch. He wasn’t scared to take their full back on and get good crosses into the oppositions box.
Ralston also had 2 brilliant blocks.
Celtic had 8 Scottish players who started the game tonight, which included our keeper and full defence.

2.) 28 Jul 2021 22:21:08
I don't think any of our players were outstanding. Murray was OK but has a lot to learn before he's ready for regular first team football. I'd let him and Welsh both leave on loan providing we get defenders brought in.

3.) 28 Jul 2021 22:30:31
Welsh has to stop diving in otherwise he'll be walking a tight rope every game. Both Goals we conceded were Sunday league defending. We need another CB to partner Starfelt as Welsh and Murray are far too inexperienced and have much developing to do before they can be relied upon.

4.) 29 Jul 2021 05:49:05
I agree, I don’t think we had any outstanding players on show tonight. Young Welsh, Murray and ralston never let themselves or the club down, but like I said in a previous post, that has to be the worst, most inexperienced backline I’ve ever witnessed a Celtic manager ever having to field in any European tie. For the Celtic board to allow any manager never mind one who’s only in the door a month to be in the position to have to field that is unbelievable. McKay, desmond both even have to come out and address the fans on this…. It’s sheer negligence and in any other line of business, serious questions need asked at boardroom level, not of the manager but of the ambition and decisions made by themselves.



28 Jul 2021 21:00:13
We would have been better playing with 10 men and leaving eddy on the bus, he is rank rotten and has been the last few games the quicker he is gone the better and if clubs are watching him tonight we would be lucky to get our money back.


1.) 28 Jul 2021 21:05:02
Eddie should have been sold after the game against them across the Clyde and should never have worn the jersey again.

2.) 28 Jul 2021 21:06:08
There should be taxi at Glasgow Airport when they get home to pick up Eddy and take him to Brighton.

Hail Hail

3.) 28 Jul 2021 21:17:55
Last few games? He's been rotten for months.

4.) 28 Jul 2021 21:31:43
I'd happily pay for his taxi to Brighton, hey I'll even let him stay rent free in my daughters house in Brighton, just get him to fu££. He will earn stupid amounts of cash, but playing like that he should be in Sunday league.



28 Jul 2021 17:11:40
Has Hart signed yet?


1.) 28 Jul 2021 17:55:33
I can’t see Celtic confirming the signing hours before such a big game.
Our keepers are under enough pressure.
It’s still possible to have Hart in for the Hearts game.

I personally don't think anything will happen now if fifa only told uefa it was a world wide ban a couple of days ago. How were the Danish to know if uefa didn't. I think they will win their case I really really hope I am wrong though and we get put into the group stages.

To beat any of these teams we need to keep Eddy on the bench as he doesn't seem interested at all, play Kyogo as the striker and get the defence sorted.

Ed how many times have celtic pulled out a signing like Furuhashi where the media don't have a clue. That's how we should conduct all our transfer business imo.
