Castor Troy - Face/Off

Which one was he? I always get the two mixed up

I nearly fell for that too.... ;)

Tommy DeVito - Goodfellas (Joe Pesci)

I was actually being serious  ;D

Nic Cage was him originally and he was a much better bad guy than Travolta

I see a new cross community club now starting up in Craigavon (Craigavon GAA). I thought there was enough clubs in the area without starting another one.

Where are you seeing this

Well TBH with the guys we have on here i wouldn't even try to defend NL on here but good performance (eventually) and scoring 5 goals away from home is perfect. His fav formation is 352 and we're at our strongest going forward playing that, he obviously didn't think the players he had at his disposal could pull that off for whatever reasons (not fit/sharp enough etc) but that's old ground so no point covering that just like the silly discussions about how Celtic would do in England when they play in Scotland.

Good to see Polish Paddy get a goal. Will do his confidence the world of good

What has former Celtic players got to do with the current team? They can't sell them twice. Of the current side only Edouard has been linked with a move away.

With clubs operating on reduced transfer budgets due to Covid 19 you would imagine they'd be looking for bargains where they hadn't done in the past yet for whatever reason clubs aren't making approaches for any of their players.

It proves that the league is, and remains, a source of talent good enough for the EPL.

As for the current Celtic side; McGregor is constantly linked with moves away to the EPL, as is Ntcham, as is Edouard, as is Ajer. Weirdly right now it looks like Celtics rouge left back is potentially away to Roma.

You obviously donít keep abreast of these things very closely - a quick google search and youíd have found links for all of the above.

Really don't. I did see Bollinger has nearly forced his way out after his trip to Spain didn't get him his transfer to a Spanish club.(he's an idiot)
I forgot about Nticham. For a lad who thinks he's too good for the SPL (that was funny when I seen it) he'd want to up his game. Problem he seems to have is motivating himself when you know your going to win easily week. Doesn't look interested some days.

So do you watch Scottish football or do you not? Iím confused

I watch the derbies. Watching Celtic/Rangers beat any of the other teams is irrelevant. They are so superior to them in terms of budget/squad size and ability they are nothing but mismatches. Sure you might get the odd fluke win here or there, but the fact Celtic are going for a treble treble of trophy wins with one of their weakest squads compared to previous teams/years says alot about the standard of opposition in the league.
So you only watch the derbies yet you comment on Scottish football with authority. Makes sense then.

From an Irish point of view it's a bad move for Duffy/Ireland, but it's a good signing for Celtic. Why move for a season on loan?

No doubt he'll improve Celtic's team, but on a personal and professional level it's a backward step for him

He chose Celtic to try to challenge himself. It wouldíve been easy to continue getting a big wage at a lower epl team where regular defeats donít matter that much as long as you get the odd win to make sure you stay above the bottom 3. That attitude goes nowhere at a club like Celtic where winning every week is demanded from the supporters. That brings real pressure of a type he would never experience in England. Every mistake will be scrutinised by the media and his own supporters so he will have to get up to and maintain a very high standard.

Who's he testing himself against in the SPL? Celtic are far superior to all the other SPL sides. He can sleep walk through games against piss poor opposition on a weekly basis and Celtic will still win. At least in England he'd be challenged on a weekly basis. Hopefully it's only for the season and he gets a move to an EPL side next summer

John Bull here is devastated to see Irish internationals playing for Celtic.

Dry your eyes, pal.

Heís got a point why would you want Irish players regressing and playing against lesser opposition itíll hardly help them when it comes to a crunch international game!!

Duffy is the only Irish player who would get near the Celtic XI presently.

John Egan also

Doubt DD has weighed in to pay Duffy's wages there??

Celtic pay 25k Brighton pay 20k so its on the high end for Celtic but its not a crazy wage

£45k a week * 52 weeks = £2,340,000 a year. Say a 3-year contract, that's a total of £7m before tax.

Some dosh once you get into Premier League.

Have you seen what Messi is supposedly going to get at Man City?

Sure he isnít leaving Barca

Moved to Lurgan last month (eventually), and thereís been a hike in dissident activity and Covid infections since then. Perfect timing  ;D

What's up with the dizzies? Was it them that burned out the delivery van on the tracks at Lake St.? Or just random young gulpins with too much to drink?

Is there a difference?

Duffy is close.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-8679735/Celtic-set-complete-one-year-loan-deal-Brighton-defender-Shane-Duffy.html

Potentially the right signing to bolster for Europe. Pity it wasn't done three or 4 weeks ago. 3-5-2 beckons, although Ajer could be away.

I think he'll be a good signing and the fee is very reasonable, he's at a good age to get another 4/5 good years out of him too.

With him and Jullien we should carry a huge scoring threat from set plays. Jullien must be close to double figures in goals for Celtic now?

I don't really rate Ajer, if we got £15m or so for him I'd bite your hand off - so long as that money was then made available to strengthen the squad - which we know is very unlikely.

We're also being linked with Sampdoria centre half Omar Colley for around Ä8m but I don't think there's any hope of that happening unless Ajer moves on.

Itís a loan signing

Documentary at 9pm on BBC2 about Liverpools 30 year wait for the title.
Really enjoyed it. Worth a watch for anyone that didn't see it.

I assume it will be on iplayer

Job done today...Celtic played a bit better, even James Forrest had a decent game. You could see his frustration after scoring as he doesn't normally react like that so he probably realised himself he hadn't been playing well so to get his goal will do him the world of good and his general play was good. The difference in the second half playing with a centre forward and Frimpong in at RB was so much better.
Leigh Griffiths starts back training tomorrow and Edouard will be fit after International break so hopefully things will be up another notch in a few weeks...There's only one Neil Lennon...one Neil Lennon :D

Looked comfortable but that should be the end of no striker starting. In fact I hope we go with two. Frimpong seems wasted as a right back.
Forrest finished well, and great reaction. A lot of frustration dissipated!
Who did Celtic beat?

It's easy for them to win every week against teams they've a far superior budget and they are expected to win.

They bet St Mireen or Ross County or some otheri key mouse team and everything is great!!

10 in a row is still on!!!  Yay Celtic, what a team, battering the like sof Ross County & Hamilton every week!! Players must be lining up to be a part of such a milestone!!!!

What a milestone to put on your CV😆

You have really misjudged Celtic fans

Apart from tour ten in a row comment. That will be great

What sort of scouting recruiting are they doing. Celtic have a limited budget but seems to be hoping they discover a gem from a smaller league like Poland. Sorro, Klimala,

Gerrard has been backed at Rangers. Ryan Kent was a good signing.  Leeds looking to sign him.  Defoe a proven Premier league player, Steven Davis.

Lennon has let Bayo and Shved depart without giving either a chance. Klimala and Soro are warming the bench.

We don't really know anything about these players yet we are seeing James Forrest embarrassing himself week in, week out. Lennon picks his favourites irrespective of form or ability.

They could be good players, let's not forget Teemu Pukki was a player Neil Lennon had under him at his first spell in charge at Celtic.........

Pukki played one year under Lennon and admitted himself he thought playing in Scotland would be easy and that he found the speed and physicality difficult to adjust to.

You keep talking about the huns imploding last season. Do Celtic get no credit whatsoever on your mind at all
Iím not defending Lennon for last night. Not starting a striker was unforgivable.

Do Celtic get any credit for the huns imploding?

Absolutely not.

Celtic have been an embarrassment in big games under Lennon, they are a very poorly organised team under Lennon, lots of players have gone backwards under him since he took over - Forrest, McGregor, Ajer, Christie, Rogic to name a few.

Celtic are a one man team and Edouard is the only thing between Lennon and the exit door.

If Celtic have any ambition or hope for the future then Lennon simply has to go, he is out of his depth.

Forget about the huns for once ffs. Celticís run after the break was excellent and is very credit worthy for normal fans. Yes we have had embarrassing results under Lennon. We have also had some excellent results but they seem to have escaped your mind.
