International football is a tax on Celtic


Steve Clarke made the right call to leave Leigh Griffiths out of his Scotland squad for the right reasons, saying, “I feel we should just give him a little bit more time to settle into the role again at Celtic…a fully fit, firing, sharp Leigh Griffiths will always be good for us.”  It is difficult to get a quiet period of normality when you are a high profile football player, but that’s what Leigh needs, while simultaneously getting back to what he does as a top football player.

International football is a tax on Celtic, as more of our players feature in full or youth squads than our direct competitors, most of whom get international fortnights off.  It’s a pity Callum McGregor and James Forrest are not also rested.

    Is it cause we have huns on Sunday ???

    Whogivesa…marathon…not sprint.




  2. Maybe just maybe our boss had been told that we have three in the bag🤔


    Remember the contingency plan 🤔


    Who would throw our boss under a bus 🤔

    Aye, you’re quite correct apologies that was uncalled for in the whole context of your post,


    – which I’ve now re read.



    In fact I’m even more culpable as I posted about excuses in not signing players just yesterday, the day before, and the day before, and the day before.



    I didn’t post about sacking the CEO because it can’t, and won’t happen because there is no mechanism for such, especially when we’re the most successful, unsuccessful club in the world.

    ” we’re the most successful, unsuccessful club in the world.”……




    Some might say we are the most unsuccessful,successful club in the world. lol

  5. If we do not have one new player on that plane to Stockholm, there is a considerable risk that any future statement made by our manager may well be regarded with the same skepticism as any made by Donald Trump.



  6. Diverse media range tonight,Ghana media or John James site.



    Phew. I just can’t get enough




    Danny McGrain what a player

    Danny could do us a turn at left back tlill December. Then our pantomime window opens for everyone’s humour.



    Hail Hail

    Every football shirt means something…

  10. From @hargi_



    So a player who was wanted by Man City but it fell through & that same player said he was hopeful something could then be done with Celtic, then we don’t follow that through & he signs for Porto for just £1.6m? That just sums up the shambles at our club EVERY TRANSFER WINDOW 😣

  11. From @cmackie659



    So reports are that Meling and Taylor deals are dead with another loan/project player now rumoured to be coming…along with no mention of a right back or midfielder it’s looking prettt bleak once again. Lawwell needs chased out of Celtic and only the supporters can do that 👍

  12. From @cr02887062



    Lennon publicly said we were signing two players by today. Maybe now people will understand why Brendan Rodgers walked.

  13. Does Celtic ever show their hand with transfers? Did we know big FF was coming back?



    We should qualify tomorrow night and I think we will have enough in the tank to see off TFOD on Sunday…




  14. If we lose the league because of that miserable bastard Lawwell then that is unforgivable IMO and he should never be welcomed back in to Celtic Park ever again.

  15. It’s obvious to me that Lenny hasn’t a clue what’s going on regarding our signings. I’ve lost count of the amount of times this summer he’s come off with statements that have no end result.



    It’s a big week for us but should the unthinkable happen and we lose these next two games – Neil Lennon and Lawwell will see what actual hysteria looks like.

  16. Henrik1967 – thank you so much for copying and pasting 3 tweets posted there by folk I’ve never heard of. NO doubt they are all very well informed.

    Like as well informed as Paul @CQN @pmac and the rest of the blow hards.



    Yer welcome. 👍

  18. Trying to weed ooot the sleekit gangbangin’ huns from the reasonable, genuine , concerned of Timdom is not easy……………………



    but it’s always worthwhile!










  19. Sitting here hoping Rosenborg doesn’t win this tie so we can sign their left back. What a desperate shambles of a board we truly have running the show.



    £25 million for KT and we’re still no further forward.
