    Current one hasn't finished ....
    There's FA Cup to be settled yet, and Champions League too.

    Soz, meant to answer this before:

    No, they won't play each other, but it'll still be interesting.... Looking forward to the Nice game later tonight, but don't have a scooby what the Celtic team will be!

    As for Griffo, he's always been a problem child, such is often the case with talented players. What I suspect has happened is that, as he's obviously still got mental health issues, the lockdown and lack of playing football has got to him, as the more you're alone with your 'demons', with nothing to take your mind off of things, the more it'll affect you.

    And as you know, it's a common thing to pile on the pounds when you're depressed, as you use food to 'hide behind', as it were, and to try and cheer yourself up. Basically, with him, it's been a classic case of 'idle hands are the devil's tools' - too much spare time to sit and think about his problems. He needs to be playing football to take his mind off of them!

    It's a disappointment and setback for sure, but only temporary, as I'm sure he'll return to confound his critics. He'll need to be on his toes though, as I hear that Klimala (the Polish striker we signed last season) has really come onto a game during training and looks a totally different player!

    Oh, and I also hear that Joe Hart's pretty much a done deal, and unlike some, that excites me... He just needs a new challenge/confidence boost and the chance to prove himself, as you don't lose the abilities you were born with overnight. The fact is, not that long ago he won the Premiership title with City and was England's No1. A 'dud' he is not.

    In that respect, I think he'll do a great job for Celtic, the same as other Man City 'flops', such as Sinclair and Roberts!

    was referring to rangers as i had a chat with a few folk.. what celtic do is their affair, as is rangers tbh, but im still interested in the youth side of it as rangers are setting up a very good system; trouble is pressure stops mostly any of them getting into fisrt team.
    still we live in hope one day. they signed the lad from ireland, lindsay, and the boy graham from ross county... 2 of the best prospects today, alas kennedy seems to want too much cash and has had his head turned by his agent... if he cant get into our side, he wont get into man city's.. still if he is chasing cash...
