Looks like lustig to get a new deal maybe a year extension hope he'll be back up to a new rb.

Lustig has been a very good servant to Celtic. Winning 7 league title's, 3 Scottish cups and 3 league cups.

He deserves a new contract. Yes he's getting on and maybe need to fight for his postion. Some of the comments on social media about the new contract are disgraceful. How people forget so quickly what he's done for us. HH.

Happy av not forgot but there's better players than him had to move on old father time waits for no-one and the reality us he's been a liability in more games than not.

What's not to like? Mika is class. We'll miss him when he goes.

Agree3 0Disagree

15 Nov 2018 00:45:42
Just because he has been a great servant doesn't mean he deserves a new deal. New deals are earned and Lustig had delivered sub par performances for 2 years now. His wage would be better spent elsewhere.

Agree3 1Disagree

15 Nov 2018 08:08:46
So the majority wouldn't resign Lustig fair enough. We buy a new RB and boom he's injured, with our record it's a possibility. No back up. Gamboa out of contract and Ralston out his depth.

If anything happened to KT at least we have Izzy. Think I will trust Brendan.

Agree1 0Disagree

15 Nov 2018 11:45:02
Am all for giving lustig a new deal but as back up to a better younger rb that's what top clubs do he just about single handed out us out of Europe by allowing too many crosses.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Nov 2018 15:13:05
Yip it was Lustig that cost us in Europe. No the CH who refused to play. Or the CH that can't jump at set pieces.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Nov 2018 16:21:08
Happy you stop the cross at all costs it's basic stuff how many times does young Kieran let a cross come in it's stopped at source i like the big man but he was at fault against Leipzig as well.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Nov 2018 19:18:14

You do know the Leipzig goal came from a cross in KTs side. Lustig definitely has his faults. My argument is the way fans are treating him on social media. The man deserves better.

Celtic fans are the first to be up in arms if a player doesn't show us loyalty. Lustig has given us his best years.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Nov 2018 21:14:16
It's all about opinions if your happy to go with lustig for the next 2 years as your no1 rb fine unfortunately am looking for better.

Agree1 0Disagree

16 Nov 2018 00:44:46
Taking his performances out of the conversation Lustig will be one of the higher earners in the team. It doesn't make business sense to pay a big wage to a back up player. As for Lustig himself he is still a Swedish international who may be only has one of two seasons left in him at a high level. Would he want to be a back up?

Agree0 0Disagree

Great news let's see him kick on.

I'm pretty sure Rodgers will be ruthless when the time comes but if we are offering lustig a new contract, then Rodgers must think he has something to offer.

Agree0 0Disagree

Lustig has been a very good servant to for years gets dogs abuse. Christie plays 1 good game and he's the new messiah.

Agree0 0Disagree

If today was a bad result against a well organised aggressive team after a mammoth euro display then I will take that all day. We would have lost that game 6 weeks ago. Most teams will struggle at that venue.

Top of the league, we welcome the chase.

Ntcham signs a new 4 year deal!
Great News.

{Ed007's Note - But... but.... huff... not interested... misses Dembele... clearly wants out... raging we never let him leave.... for the off in January...

Olly will need to settle for a spot in the bench. Christie and McGregor on fire 🔥 🔥 🔥.

How can that be true when guys like magicpole know he really wants away? 🤔.

09 Nov 2018 14:47:36
Good buisness by Celtic guarantees a big sale when time comes. Ntcham will need to up his game more regular to be First team pick.

This split in the dressing room causing this crisis is hard to watch. HH.

Fantastic news and it's amazing the turnaround in positivity around our club.

The amount of panty wetting (to use one of eds phrases) was ott and playing into the hands of the media and so called expert pundits.

I'm really looking forward to the January window and feel convinced we will yet again lay a marker down.

Agree1 0Disagree

09 Nov 2018 16:41:26
Olly would you like more money?

More money yes please.

Only catch is its guaranteed for next 4 years with a 12 million buy out clause. Think your worth 12?

I'm worth 20 gimme that so I can sign it.

{Ed007's Note - If Ntcham was in a huff and desperate to leave in January why would he sign a new deal 7 weeks before the transfer window opens? And, if you're right about the buy out clause, why would he potentially price himself out of a move he's desperate for, what if other clubs don't think he's worth the £12 million and will only pay £10 million?
So come February we could have a player that's supposedly in the huff and desperate to leave who's stuck here because nobody will pay the buy out clause HIM & HIS AGENT agreed only 12 weeks previously.
I can't see that, if he was that desperate to leave he wouldn't care how much Celtic got for him for a start and his agent wouldn't be that stupid, his job is to maximise the player and his own money, not the Club's and he makes a lot more from transfers than he does new contracts.}

This is great news . I think this guy on form is fantastic.

09 Nov 2018 19:50:02
Ed let me get this right.
We've have went from guys on here
KNOWING nctcham is DEFINITELY leaving to guys on here KNOWING what's in his contract the day he signs it?

{Ed007's Note - I'm wondering what the shout will be the next time he misplaces a pass - demonic possession, bendy water? 🤔

Agree0 0Disagree

09 Nov 2018 23:15:52
Bendy water? wtf is that? LOL.

Ntcham will misplace his passes; cause he's trying to find his compass and something unusual. That's everything I love about his game. (I do miss the pirouette passes he began with: the unwobbling pivot- a a little, but no-one gets to stand around in a BR team)

Felt sorry for Eboue and Arzani this week. That must have been a spectacle from the sidelines. I fear we have alienated the former, and suspect there's still a player in there.

{Ed007's Note - Have ypu not seen the Leigh Griffiths 'bendy water' video?


And then watch the bendy water guy's videos!!!!!!

If Ntcham was the finished article he wouldn't be a Celtic player, he's here to learn and progress and with him signing a new deal and what he said he feels he's in the right place for that.
I've put up links to articles before comparing the 2 and how City didn't need Pogba etc but would you swap Pogba for Ntcham? Now there's a player that doesn't want to be at his club but that's another story.
Footballing wise though I honestly don't see how anyone who has wathed Pogba regularly at Man Utd could choose him, behind all the hype and profile there is a very average 25-year old player, I've yet to see him take a game by the scruff of the neck for club or country.
Christie's made a bigger impact for us the last few weeks than Pogba has at Utd.}

The ntcham away posts were just made up nonsense. there was no substance and as ed says he misplaced a pass and it was oh me must want away because dembelles away. wish we could just enjoy theses players while there here.

Agree0 0Disagree

10 Nov 2018 09:26:59
Bloody hell, that's good Ed, cheers! got to love Leigh's attitude, a sort of indulgent skepticism.

Enjoyed the City articles on Ntcham, I don't think they are an exaggeration. I do have some regard for Pogba. He first came to my attention when we played Juve in the CL and looked really awesome. He does look pretty average most times I've seen him in England but I have no lover for utd.

{Ed007's Note - You can just imagine LG sitting with a tablet surrounded by a team of kids watching youtube videos about bendy water 😂

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Nov 2018 01:13:06
Ntcham seems like he has his head screwed on. I do think he will be away at some point down the line however he will be here untill he develops like Wanyama, Van Dijk, Dembele or Gamboa converts to CM.

Agree0 0Disagree

Strong starting 11 but a weak bench for me. I think we'll lose a goal but still win, 2-1 or 3-1 can't make my mind up.

Ryan Christie signing a four year deal before end of the month. M. L. two year extension. HH

Seen that rumour on Twitter. As this is called Celtic Rumours I thought I would stick it up. If true 2yr extension for Lustig seems strange.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

07 Nov 2018 12:54:48
He'd be very decent back-up for a new RB Hoopy.

Agree1 0Disagree

10 Nov 2018 22:38:17
In all my years of watching Celtic I have had many disappointments when big players leave the club for big money offers, mainly in England. Macari, Dalglish, McClair, Nicolas and in more recent times, Forster, Wanyama, Van Dyke. It’s really encouraging that we’re holding onto the majority of our stars these days and I suspect that’s down to BR. It’s also encouraging that the board are willing to sanction the increase in the wage bill we’ve seen as a result of this. Holding onto guys like Lustig, Izzaguirre, Biton, Hayes etc. are an important part of maintaining our strength in depth.

Agree0 0Disagree

05 Nov 2018 20:56:04
My pal at work said he'd heard a rumour that Man Utd (his team) would be bidding for a Leicester defender and that would force Leicester to trigger the return of benkovic.
Anybody heard similar?

Be a shame, the lad looks top drawer.

Seen a report boyata is injured albeit on Faceb££k, true?

Believable0 0Unbelievable

05 Nov 2018 21:25:33
Going to have to bring in 2 quality defenders in Jan if this happens as I see us selling Boyata in Jan.

Agree0 0Disagree

05 Nov 2018 22:10:01
They were trying to sign McGiure late in the transfer window but he’s on a long term deal there so their bid was rejected.

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Nov 2018 10:45:22
I may be wrong Ice Man but I think Leicester actually signed him up to a bumper new deal AFTER the window closed. If so this would make it even more unlikely he would be sold in January.

Agree1 0Disagree

06 Nov 2018 15:29:36
McGuire singed his 5yr deal in the summer of 2017. So will come down to if Leicester want to cash in. Would be good if he stayed.

Benkovic staying/ going Should not be a consideration in January window. We need 2 quality CH in this window. We need to be ready for European qualifiers. RB and another Striker in January would be a good window. A striker in the mould of Dembele would be nice.

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Nov 2018 18:11:53
Not so Tompo88, a new and extended contract just means they'd get more for him if they did sell. HH.

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Nov 2018 18:09:17
I agree with you Happy in what we need but sadly I can't see us getting any more than 1 new player 2 at the most.

Agree1 0Disagree

06 Nov 2018 21:53:44
Yeah I get that BTC but was thinking it makes it less likely cause as you say it adds and extra 20 mill plus to the price. Still by no means rules it out. I'd be gutted if we lose Benkovic in January he really has steadied the ship.

Agree0 0Disagree

07 Nov 2018 02:23:46
Going on 1st impressions, the bhoy benkovic is a cracking player. I would be astonished if we could come up with any kind of deal to extend his stay with us. However, we had our chance to go in a bit high before LCFC nipped in. Now we would more than likely have to offer them more than double of what our original bid was.

My point being, if we discover good players, we should stop messing about worrying about budgets.

I know it's just business from the board, but it affects us year on year during qualifiers.

You need to accumulate to speculate, not the other way round.

Although I'm absolutely delighted at how the team have performed over the last 4/ 5 weeks, a performance to be proud of in Europe seems to evade us.

The board can't sit on their a@$e this next window. We must recruit a player/ players of a higher standard.

It's the only way we can make inroads on Europe.

Agree1 0Disagree

10 Nov 2018 07:58:18
How was Thursday's win in europe for u faddy? Were u proud? U should always be proud of the team.

Celtic don’t budget to be in the CL every year, they budget to remain strong both on and off the field. We’ve already seen what reckless spending achieves across the other end of the city and I wouldn’t want us to go down that route.

Any substance to the Wilfred bony links anybody heard anything.

Mally, the Bony rumours were started online.
What about taking a punt on the lad Kamberi at Hibs, should not cost too much either on transfer fee or wages.

Agree1 0Disagree

06 Nov 2018 13:54:48
Thought that Tim but the boy kamberi looks good could do worse.

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Nov 2018 21:10:26
Tim I agree with you I like the look of the lad Kamberi from what I’ve seen of him this season and last. However we’ve pulled in almost £20m for Dembele and I would like to see us aim a bit higher. I get spending bigger money on a player does not guarantee success. Knowing our board I would suggest a move for Kamberi would be more likely.

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Nov 2018 05:26:58
Mr Lawwells finest scholars will all be thinking in the lines of the Dembele money doesn't really cover the lack of CL money this season so we need to sell KT and Eddie .

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Nov 2018 12:59:53
Wouldn't mind Richmond Boakye from Red Star if we are looking for a like for like quality replacement for Dembele.

Agree0 0Disagree

04 Nov 2018 14:23:50
We're running on a good vibe at the moment. Forrest continues to show himself as an important player, Christie is stepping up to the plate big time, Rogic is performing well, Benkovic is proving his quality, McGregor is fantastic whatever role he is asked to play and Edouard is showing his quality even though he is lacking a frontman buddy. If we can get Griff to the right level then he can be electric. The future is bright, hopefully the board will back Brendan in January and put the pretenders in their place for good. HH.

A striker in the window is a must far too light in that dept.
