The Celtic 2018/19 thread

The lad's still got time on his side and in Rogic and Christie you have examples of players who, after a season or two, didn't look like they'd be able to hold down a first team place at Celtic. 

Young Scottish players often seem to be an easy target imo and only a fool would dismiss the notion that BR might still make a very good player of him.

Hes still youngish but hes 23 (same age as Christie). He actually hadnt played a great deal of professional games either before Dundee  and quite a low level. Other than being a prospect at Partick and playing decent in a terrible Dundee side for half a season he hasnt really done much of note in the game. He could still make it but for me he desperately needs games to build up more experience and wont get it here. Rodgers seems to still rate him so will go with his better judgement but I think he needs two seasons playing week in week out at a good level.

He's completely stunted his career moving to Celtic.

The move was understandable, for both parties, but he's far too raw to be any use to you, and he'll never play enough to lose that rawness, unless you lot have major injuries.

Agree with this really. At 22 he had only played about 50 professional games when he signed for us.

Loan him to Aberdeen for a couple of seasons, once they cash in on McKenna, and he'll come back ready to step up like Christie.

Hayes had a bad injury and not had much game time since Forrest has been on fire , Christie has been outstanding also. Maybe try him on the left in place of Sinclair who seems to let most games pass him by these days. Think Hayes and Tierney could form a great partnership but time will tell. Agree on gamboa though , we badly need a new rb with lustig getting on. Hopefully our Brendan sorts that out sooner rather than later.

Time for Gamboa and Hayes to pack their bags for January plus if we lose Boyata I can see Celtic moving again for McKenna.

Celtic won't be getting Broadfoot after all, he has said he doesn't want to uproot his family.

Wonder if we'll go in for Morgan or Johnston again in January.

Morgan needs game time but also appreciate he is training with better players every day so he is still improving.

I was hoping to see Ralston play a few games this season but it hasn't happened for him,if Lustig needs to be rested more I would rather see Tierney on the right than Gamboa and bring in Izzy on the left,for me Hayes isn't good enough and would rather see a bit more of mickey Johnston and Morgan.

All fair points think ralston career has stalled massively. Agree with giving mikey Johnston and Morgan more game time though both seem very good players and still young enough to improve a lot especially under Brendan. Although I think Hayes could be a pretty decent squad player for us. Need some fresh blood in January though.

Griffiths ruled out for an indefinite period of time due to mental health issues.

Shame for the guy was just looking like he was turning the corner injuries wise but theres been a few rumours regarding other stuff.

Another unfortunate victim of football's uncomfortable relationship to gambling money.   Hopefully Leigh can get the help he needs and comes back stronger, he is lightning when he is on his game and looking at some of his recent performances it's now obvious that something has not been right with him.

Get well soon Leigh

Ignoring mass sponsorship You hear horrible stories of agents getting backhanders for setting up accounts with bookies to encourage them spend their cash with them.

Sports Betting in the past 10 years in the UK has got out of control. I have pals who know they have problems with it, others who wont admit it. Some are in there mid 30s with decent paid jobs but  I doubt will ever I move out their parents house because of it. They dont have fancy clothes, flash cars or go out much so their main outgoing is gambling.

Dont expect MPs to do much about this epedemic though...

Hearing Celtic are not going to take the allocation at ibrox over safety concerns, caged rabbits with nets doesn't sound good.

On the ball as ever.
