  1. Less than 2 months until the Champions League first qualifying round kicks off. All qualifying rounds are to be played over one leg this year until the playoffs. Celtic's potential first round opponents are: North Macedonia - Sileks (Abd-2nd) Armenia - Ararat Armenia (1st) * Luxembourg - Fola Esch (Abd-1st) Georgia - Dinamo Tbilisi (1st) Sweden - Djurgårdens IF (1st) Montenegro - Buducnost Podgorica (1st)* Estonia - Flora (1st) Belarus - Dynamo Brest (1st) Latvia - Riga (1st) Wales - Connah's Quay Nomads (Abd-1st) Faroe Islands - KÍ Klaksvík (1st) Gibraltar - Europa (Abd-1st) Finland - KuPS (1st) Iceland - KR (1st) Albania - KF Tirana (1st)* Malta - Floriana (Abd-1st) Prelim round winner (Linfield) Obviously we'd be hoping to avoid Djurgårdens and Dinamo Brest.
  2. Hi there, I'm an author writing a book on Thomas Gravesen, I've spoken to teammates, coaches and fans from all of his clubs in his career. But I'm looking for some Celtic fans to give me their memories and thoughts on him. It's just a couple of questions which fans form all of his clubs have answered for me, I'm using their answers in the book in a fan memories chapter. So if any Celtic fans would be keen to be involved and contribute to the book, just let me know and I can send you over the questions. Thanks a lot - cheers.
  3. Massive game for us, first game back in the big time and what a way to start it. Celtic will be shaking in their boots
  4. hi all, hope you’re well. i'm an author based in glasgow, and i'm writing about a book on the life and career of thomas gravesen - otherwise known as mad dog. he was a colourful character, on and off the pitch, a very interesting guy - playing here for celtic but also everton, hamburg and real madrid. i've spoken to ex-players and managers who worked with him, but i was trying to reach out to any fans or punters who had memories of him, or even met him or know of any of his crazy antics, which are legendary. i’d be able to give you a credit in the book of course or even quote you direct possibly. i’m just trying to pull together as much material as i can, as i feel football is missing real characters now and thomas was such a great guy, so it’s from a fan’s point of view about how much of a maverick he was. thanks a lot - cheers.
  5. Pick It Out Episode 3- 'Cut that Bit out!' This time on Pick it Out I'm joined by Martin Melly from the Celtic podcast '20 Minute ****'. Martin and I talk Celtic in Europe so far this season, Betfred cup semi finals, how good Louis Moult is and look back at players to play for both Rangers and Celtic. Shall post links to Itunes, Acast, Soundcloud and Mixcloud here P.S Apologies for the comically bad editing at the end of the episode was doing it last night because I did't think I would have time the rest of the week https://itunes.apple.com/gb/podcast/pick-it-out-podcast/id1295679025?mt=2&i=1000393967208 https://www.mixcloud.com/harveya95/cut-that-bit-out/ https://www.acast.com/pickitout/cut-that-bit-out
  6. So another off season is upon us, thus another summer of wild speculation on who will buy Celtic players and what ridiculous rumours Celtic are linked with so I figured I would post when I see them and encourage my fellow hoops fans to do the same. Here is what I have seen so far (and my opinion) Departures Moussa Dembele: Still the 30 million rumours linking him to a number of big clubs, all pretty crazy and none will happen this summer IMHO Kieran Tierney: Was linked to Arsenal, but all has gone quiet on that front, hope he stays Gary Mackay-Steven: Heavily linked with Sheffield United, would be a good move for all parties Emilio Izaguirre: Even after Celtic triggered a contract extension there are still rumours, most recent one was Leeds Stuart Armstrong: Had been linked to a number of English clubs but looks set to stay Ryan Christie: A part of the Jonny Hayes rumours, hope he doesn't go permanently Arrivals linked Jonny Hayes: Looks likely, although the motivation only seems to screw over Aberdeen, not an improvement and bad deal, especially of we are trading Christie as well. John Terry: This one keeps popping up, but he's not coming to Celtic Fabio Borini: No, just No. Apparently Celtic are willing to spend 6 million on him, He's an Italian Joe Garner, 19 goals in 120 PL games is no improvement Viktor FIsher: A creative player who had a shitemare of a season at Boro, could be a great pickup. Patrick Roberts: Would be amazing if Celtic could get him permanently, but Man City probably want too much I'm sure I have missed a lot, those are just the ones I can remember from the past link, please add others as you think of them
  7. Hey I often surf this forum for ideas and intrigue when it comes to the Scottish game, though I've never signed up or posted. First time for everything I guess. I am a Rangers fan - cue head-bursting frustration from other supporters reading this - and following a conversation with a few Celtic fan friends after the game last night I just wanted to find out a bit more. Sometimes, this forum moves away from baiting and point scoring and tosses up some fairly decent discussion. Anyway, what amazes me about this Celtic Green Brigade Palestine Flag self-righteousness is not that it happened, but that some fans actually believe they were driven by a selfless and unwavering passion to help free the Arab state. Do Celtic fans genuinely believe that they're the footballing equivalent of Che Guervara riding a big massive green and white horse, shielding the entire world from the evils of corruption and battling the pork sword of the Establishment one unjust regime at a time? Or, are they more like George Galloway riding a worn out mule on Blackpool beach, clawing and grasping for his 15 minutes of fame to be restored and that anti-establishment rhetoric recognised, as his agents and owners sell tickets to fans of Celebrity Big Brother to raise money for their plush villas in the Maldives and passers-by cringe and wonder if they should phone someone for help? I think it comes down to two things. Celtic did this for Palestine - or they did it for themselves. I don't think it's two ways, and from my early research and Celtic supporting friends, I believe they couldn't give a toss about Palestine. Like they have not one single iota of interest in freeing the Arab state, but are more interested in attaching the club to something again considered anti-establishment. Most of my friends agreed. This is not a stab at Celtic fans as a whole, but half the Green Brigade in particular couldn't even spell Palestine let alone sculpt anything resembling an argument about the politics of the Middle East. Prove me wrong.
  8. Doing a wee bit of research for something, Rangers and Celtic fans can you name me some cult heroes? Guys that made their name with the fans because of the Old Firm matches. Thinking Erik Bo Andersen, rather than Jorg Albertz. Players who didn't do all that much else in their Rangers and Celtic careers but are synonymous with this match.
  9. Usually I want to take action about things but wondered what people might think of this. I can appreciate youth football might sometimes not bring debate. I was doing some research. 10 years ago in 2006, we reached the European Championship finals at Under 19's level. This was our best performance since 1982. We lost to Spain 2-1. En route to this final in qualifying we drew with France 1-1 and Portugal 2-2. Three of those countries were finalists in this year's European Championships. This was the team that started in the final: McNeil, Cave-Brown, Wallace, Cuthbert, Grant, Ferry, Conroy (Gilmour 78), Cameron (Dorrans 74) Adams, Elliot, McGlinchey. Out of the entire squad, only Wallace and Dorrans have become Scotland players but in the squad. Two players missing from the final in Snodgrass and S.Fletcher are first picks. Garry Kenneth won 2 caps and Fox and Reynolds have been called into squads 6 of the players in the squad were part of a Celtic U19 team that won the Youth Cup and League. These were Grant, Conroy, McGlinchey, Cuthbert, Ferry and Fox. Only McGlinchey became a full international but for New Zealand! Shortly after this tournament, with the next Under 19 age group, we beat Bosnia 6-0 and Germany 1-0 who had Mezut Ozil in their team. A Germany who were already building their youth development structure that included Ozil in their team. What this goes to show is the big problem happens between 19-22. Undoubtedly some players will become late bloomers and people have to be dedicated. However this is the pattern that I feel needs to be identified if we are to have any chances of going further forward, My thinking believes it is because we focus on competitive attributes and winning matches than developing individual technique by the time it comes to adulthood we don't have as much of a technique as other nations. The problem I feel extends to other sports but mainly in society and in education because this age range (19-22) is also when players stop playing football and even sport because education ends and thus opportunities to play don't come forward. Thus also because the elite were selected and lesser players ignored, those players tend to drift out of the game and the ones who were selected therefore are not selected for the national team due to the way the manager wants to play (a long ball back to the wall job) and the way Scottish Football is structured. I feel taking aspects from other athletes are one way forward.
  10. This is the official thread for the members of P&B to congratulate Celtic on an impressive 5 in a row. What was your favourite Celtic moment of the year? How in awe of Celtic are you? Will it be 6 in a row?
  11. Hello to all the die hard footie fans out there. I am currently looking for anyone who considers themselves an avid twitter user and football fan to take a moment and fill out this extremely quick survey questionnaire. Currently, I am undergoing a research project which is looking to evaluate twitter's impact and role amongst Scottish football and the more participants, the better. So if you have a spare moment, I would be greatly appreciative if you could spend a minute filling out this survey. http://kwiksurveys.com/s/Z6BfLVoT All the best, Paul
  12. Heard last weekend that Celtic 99s folded and then confirmed on their twitter and facebook accounts. A bit of a shocker, very strong team and now nothing, such a shame. They played in the Cumbernauld and Kilsyth Top Division and were a valuable asset to the league. I hope most of the boys get set up with other teams. They were in the 3rd round of Scottish Cup so I take it their opponents receive a bye into the 4th round All the best lads wherever you go At the start of the Season we lost other good teams, Rossvale 99s. who usually win a trophy each season and Glenboig who reached the Scottish Cup Quarter/Finals last year. Both folded for reasons I'm not sure. Is there any other good teams who folded this year from other Under 17 leagues ?
  13. Genuine question to settle an ongoing office "discussion". Would you consider Craig Gordon and Virgil Van Dijk to be "European Class" players? I.e defined by them being amongst the best players that their country has to offer and has the potential to play for any of the major teams in Europe. Ignoring whether you like, hate or are indifferent to the team they play for.
  14. Rangers youth team will be playing Celtics youth team in the 2014/15 Scottish Youth Cup final on the 21st of May, does anyone know where, if announced yet this final will be being held? Also will fans be allowed to attend or will it like the Glasgow Cup final be behind closed doors?
  15. If Dundee United and Celtic were to draw today, the clubs would play each other 4 times in the month of March- in three different competitions. Whatever happens, Celtic are set to play two games in Dundee this month. Can anyone top that?
  16. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/scotland/27805755 In regards to the above (safe standing facilities to be installed at Celtic Park soon), would you support safe standing at your club? I'd personally love for the Eddie Thompson Stand (lower) to be safe standing at Tannadice. Although I get the distinct impression the admission price in our stadiums won't be as cheap as those in Germany (circa £10-£15)...
