Lazar markovic possibly for new signin. Been told by Liverpool he can leave. Any thoughts?

It's amazing how cl football can sway a player. N when Barcelona n city involved could be a deal sealer. Players will want to be involved in games like that.

Thank **** don't need another bombscare CB. Have we any idea if we are actually going to sign any1 we need a rightwing back badly as playing 352 lols our best bet with lustig part of the 3. need two players right back and cm hopeful of Mccarthy think he would be great in the hoops.

Agree1 Disagree1

26 Aug 2016 11:43:33
Morning hoops. Heard from a friend in the know that James McCarthy is a done deal. He is coming on loan with Celtic paying all of his £50K per week wages.

Also, Johansson has agreed personal terms with Fulham and is due to have a medical down there ASAP after Celtic accepted a £2M offer. Other exits are also imminent (please God let one of them be Efe! )

There will be at least 1 other big signing before the deadline (no idea who) as the sale of SJ pretty much funds McCarthy's wages for the year. Apparently the other signing will be the real marque player we've been crying out for for years. Exciting times!

Believable1 Unbelievable13

I would be quite happy to have
mc carthy and a quality creative cm player to finish of a good window

Although I'd prefer mc carthy on a permanent deal

But would be happy if it was a loan deal with option to buy.

Agree1 Disagree1

26 Aug 2016 12:24:56
Think McCarthy deal will happen but can't see us paying £50 grand a week wages for him, that's if he's even on that. Think he'd need to take a drop in wages for us to entertain him.

Agree1 Disagree1

26 Aug 2016 12:29:14
apparently on 35k a week.

Agree0 Disagree2

26 Aug 2016 12:55:14
Well mc carthy properly knows he's not gona get 50k anywhere else even in prem. so who knows.

Garryc, Mr Desmond has a history of dishing out mega wages to on-loan Irishmen lol.

£50,000 is not right.

I also heard 35k. We still won't pay that tho.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Aug 2016 15:12:22
Kevbhoy, do you seriously see Desmond paying James McCarthy £50 grand a week wages? Maybe in the past Desmond has dug deep in the wages department for the likes of Robbie Keane etc, but there's no way he'd pay ( with all due respect to James McCarthy) £50 grand a week. If we're going to fork out that kind of money on a players wage then I'd be looking for someone with a bigger name and more experience than McCarthy.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Aug 2016 15:57:50
It's definitely £50K per week. It works out at £2.6m for a year (it would actually be less than this as his loan would expire at the end of the season or end of June at the latest - so worst case his wages would cost the club £2.2m.

We have just secured not a kick in the arse of £30m for the CL, plus the £7m for the ICC and other player sales. This is all in addition to our normal, season in, season out revenue (TV money, shirt sales, sponsors match day gate) .

And we can't afford £2.2m for McCarthy? He won't be the only one coming in on decent wages. There is at least one more big name to follow. I just hope it is someone with a bit of creativity!

Agree0 Disagree3

26 Aug 2016 16:34:51
Raven i can't see us paying mccarthy 50k a week mate.
Its not a matter of being able to afford it its just how much it will unbalance the squad. We have a wage structure that we stick religously too it.

Maybe he's the bhoy to break it but 35k sounds more realistic and is still a good wage imo.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Aug 2016 16:41:22
It was tongue in cheek garryc but it might not be out of our reach to pay maybe £30-35k for a season if he actually is the man BR wants.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Aug 2016 17:03:25
50k a week for Mccarthy no chance. We would have probably paid big zlatan that wage but not for James sorry to disappoint.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Aug 2016 19:30:52
Work out our net spend so far,
The wages freed up
Money for SJ
Money spent on transfer fees
Money spent on new contracts, players in wages
Managers wages
Increase season ticket sales

Have we spent that much?

Without the CL revenue?

If we haven't got cash to splash there is something amiss big time.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Aug 2016 22:36:17
If the wage was £30/ £35 grand a week kevbhoy I can get that. I'd expect to pay that for a premiership players wage no probs. Just couldn't see the £50 grand mate.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Aug 2016 07:14:33
ED001 who decides the dates for the CL ties, is it the clubs or does UEFA decide all dates.
I am asking because again we start away from home and end away from home, would have liked first game at Celtic park.

{Ed002's Note - The dates are decided by UEFA, the order of the games are negotiated between the clubs after the draw. It is very common for the "elite" sides to get their choice as they will offer an enticement to the other sides. If the clubs cannot agree a UEFA Rep will step in and do it - very uncommon. I didn't bother going yesterday as the planned meeting for today was rescheduled, but typically after the draw there is a bit of a bash not like Michael Hurley's "Hoodoo Bash" but they can get pretty far out.}

Fulham. much we getting for him skinny?

Also PL said only one player in? we need at least 3, c@nt is going to pocket all the CL money? or will there be a few twists.

Is Johansen sold?

Medical tomorrow with Fulham is the rumour? don't know what the fee is but did we not knock back £2 mill for him before?

According to the press its Fulham in a £2 million deal. Supposedly down there for a medical.

Lawell is playing the game he is public ally stating 1 but actively trying for more. Tuesday will be a busy day and possibly 1 in over weekend.

26 Aug 2016 07:15:45
shame really, if he got his form back wouldve been great on the left side of a 3 man mid, good luck SJ.

Agree3 Disagree0

26 Aug 2016 07:49:36
If you read lawells words he said at least one more signing so there might be more than one simples.

Agree2 Disagree0

26 Aug 2016 08:18:16
Johansen is in his last year is he not? Apparently he rejected another offer (don't blame him) , time to cash in. Fulham have got a bargain there given some fees I've seen in the Championship. Let's see it added to this kitty.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Aug 2016 08:35:10
That's the way I read it Mally, at least one more I think we could see 2 or 3 new players.
Everyone went mad when they were saying PL is at it as he said there would be one more.

Wait until Wed night and see what happens.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Aug 2016 09:21:43
Irritating loss.
When he has his day SJ could do a great job for us, and in several positions. If its a numbers game as for thinning out the squad, I would easily keep him ahead of Armstrong, Commons, GMS, Henderson etc.

Agree4 Disagree1

26 Aug 2016 09:50:27
F him. Keeps rejecting contract discussions and imo not any better than the mass of CM we have. Let him go and add cash to pot for better than all the rest not just another "who do i pick today" CM. Good bit of business imo.

Agree4 Disagree1

26 Aug 2016 10:14:48
Well said shugmckie. He had a good 9 months which he was exceptional (everyone remembers that) but that was a long time ago. Problem I think with him is arrogance. By the sounds of it he was offered a couple of decent contracts which were not up to his evaluation of himself. He's done nothing for a good while and has been mostly a passenger. Now forrest I wanted rid and was gobsmacked when he got offered new deal, but you can see why, were as it seems johanson has/ cant/ doesn't want to give anymore and for that he has go but with a thank you for what he has done. There is one or two that can join him also.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Aug 2016 11:03:19
Johansen was a lightweight midfielder he was ok playing in Scotland but so are so many others, it is great news too my ears that he is off, how can we not go and buy some of the players from the teams we beat to get in to CL groups? there where some good strong midfielders in those teams that gave 110% for there team, and i bet some if not all the Astana players would jump at the chance to play for Celtic the same would be with the players from Hapoel Beer Sheva side we got the money and should go and take some of those players if possible.

Agree0 Disagree1

26 Aug 2016 11:04:00
Somebody once said football is nothing without the fans. Getting booed of a pitch - totally underservedly - and used as a whipping boy, not sure I'd be happy hanging around to be fair. Most Scandinavians grow up wanting to play in England or Germany too. Good luck to him.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Aug 2016 14:13:42
What actually happened with Johanson bhoys? As ciaran rightly noted he had a good start to his celts career then just stopped performing.

I wonder if he had a fall out with someone behind the scenes we've qualified for the CL and have some cracking nights ahead and he heads to Fulham lol.

Any scope on this ed?

{Ed007's Note - Johansen simply turned down the contract we offered him.}

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Aug 2016 17:34:26
Johansen also had a few players turn on him due to a very nasty challenge on Tierney during training. Players literally had to be pulled off him.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Aug 2016 17:52:00
Cheers skinny.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Aug 2016 17:37:25
Johansen was a good player 4 us, very under rated by 2 many fans n the booing was just awful, I expect 2 hear that at ibrokes, not Celtic park 2 1 of our own.
Again just hope we bring in a quality midfielder to replace him and another striker, oh n a goalkeeper as I'm not sure about those we have, never seen de Vries to be fair but we need a keeper that instills confidence in others.
Hail hail.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Aug 2016 22:24:53
Some of our fans treated him badly, early last season and shortly after he had won player of the year.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 16:44:08
The guy who told me that Shane Duffty was coming to CFC and Saido Berahino was going to Stoke, (he is retired, but his son is an agent who I know has dealt with some EPL transfers) I had a nice singles and double bet on this, still vald until next wed. Anyway he told me today that Celtic is still a move for Duffy, that discussions were still going yesterday, it is up to him to decide between us and Brighton, and he is moving towards us, the fee is around 3.6 million. he told me also that the James McCarthy move could be on the cards, said that he is on 35k a week, not 50 or 70 and that Bournemouth are in for him with a 8 million offer on the table, but that a CFC loan for this season with us paying all the wages would suit him better. Just passing on what I heard.

Believable1 Unbelievable11

25 Aug 2016 18:01:15
Malika I hope this is a non starter. He ain't good enough and at £3.6 million a complete waste of money.

McCarthy not for me, unless either Bitton and SJ leave

With that draw, we need quality not more of what we have. Need to go a level or 2 above these types.

Agree5 Disagree1

25 Aug 2016 18:49:54
There would be a lot better options for 3.6m than Shane "own goal" Duffy.

Agree4 Disagree1

25 Aug 2016 18:57:23
Mccarthy would be a great signing imo mobile good passer can read game well and can put himself about.

Agree2 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 19:35:39
I've never watched a game and thought that Mccarthy is some player.

Less than 50 league goals in 300 apps I'm surprised we are looking at him.

{Ed007's Note - What's your point? CDM's tend to not score many goals, our club captain has scored 55 goals in 505 appearances.}

Agree3 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 19:59:39
I think mccarthy would be a great signing he was being linked with a arsenal not so long ago . for me he's better than any other cdm we have at our club including club captain brown. I've no seen a lot of duffy to be honest but I think we need another cd that has serious pace.

Agree3 Disagree3

25 Aug 2016 20:23:52
McCarthy would easily be our best cm if he came in.

Agree3 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 20:40:53
Tick67,strange point about McCarthy mate! He's not a goal scoring midfielder mate, and his goal tally is pretty decent considering he's played at a far higher level than anything up here.

Agree1 Disagree4

25 Aug 2016 20:44:39
Simonovic has pace Toure has pace and big Eric has pace.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 20:47:36
Is there mileage in the McCarthy link Ed? I actually thought Darron Gibson would be an option via Everton they looking to move him on.

{Ed007's Note - Something could happen if Everton can't sell him which is their preferred choice.}

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 21:15:06
that was supposed to say cb lol . eric is slow in my opinion toure has pace and jozo is always injured so far so think we'd be better with more pace as cover cause boyata, ambrose are quick but both are liabilitys imo.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 21:26:19
Guess my point is should we not be looking for a goalscoring midfielder?

Sorry guys just not feeling your enthusiasm for the boy can't for the life of me mind him ever being a good player.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 21:36:57
Darren Gibson? Scraping the barrel with him

Supposed to be looking for players to improve the team not rejects that can't stay fit.

Agree2 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 21:46:03
Just seen law well saying we're in for 1 more, surely we need more than 1 decent player given the group we got?

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 22:25:22
I like McCarthy - but he's only marginally better than SB, NB, SA, GMS when they are playing good (which hasn't been a lot lately)
SJ - something going on in his heid - he's been a shadow of himself lately.

Agree3 Disagree2

25 Aug 2016 22:26:40
Rocker fella if you think we only
Need one more decent player considering the group we got you are seriously deluded. If we had played a quality team during the week we would be out on oor Arse. The defensive frailties where there for all to see in the first game. And the second game just hammered it home even more. Let's just hope the board seen it too and get some cash out.

Agree1 Disagree1

25 Aug 2016 22:27:58
I don't think we need a goalscoring midfielder, we have rogic, Robert, Sinclair and Forrest. We need someone to play next to brown. I think if we could get McCarthy and Paterson from Hearts I'd be more than happy with the squad.

Agree4 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 22:48:44
White bits, did u no read wat a said? We'll need a hell of a lot more than one player to give us a decent account of ourselves.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 22:51:02
Whitebits, Rockerfella said we needed more than one, give the guy a break and read the messages correctly.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 22:51:11
I just don't see it lads. I would be over the moon with McCarthy and realise he's out of favour but he just signed a 5 year deal with Everton last August did he not? That puts him out the loan with option to buy bracket and considering how many EPL teams would pay north of 15 mill surely puts him out of a straight buy market as well.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Aug 2016 02:57:46
Can't believe anyone who has watched our centre mid would think McCarthy wouldn't be good enough lol unbelievable, he would be a class signing.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Aug 2016 07:23:31
Take mcarthy in a heartbeat, would rather have Shane Duffy from boyzone than the one from Blackburn.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Aug 2016 08:30:01
All the people slagging McCarthy when do you actually get to watch him on the match of the day highlights? The Bhoy would walk into our starting 11. i'd start him ahead of Brown or Bitton!

When do you watch him?

Alot more than most i actually go to Goodison Park every season and have seen him make a fool of plenty so called world class EPL players. Saying that i have never seen him play for Ireland as i'm a Scotland fan.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Aug 2016 10:34:30
Peter Lawell has said they will try to bring one more player in. So there won't be two one three players coming in which has been branded about.

i actually know shane duffy very well and his family. there is no substance in shane duffy any longer coming to celtic and as for mccarthy he is definitely on 60k plus a week. just saying what i know.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Aug 2016 11:09:30
I hate to many loan players one is ok but not more than that, best to buy players that want to be part of the team for 3/ 4/ 5 years that is the only way forward we got money so buy.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Aug 2016 12:03:18
doirebhoy, that stuffs my bet, ah well, was hoping he would come as I felt he would be great for us, do you think he is going to Brighton? a few weeks ago he was gambled on from 10/ 1 into 4/ 7 to go to Swansea and some friends of mine in Derry told me that it was a dead cert, and "The whole of Derry is on it" do not know what happened to that.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Aug 2016 12:14:54
Well if he's making a fool of world class players then let's get him in.

I've seen him play many a times first at Hamilton where I thought he would amount to something special.
Seen him many a times at Wigan, Everton and Ireland and personally I've never seen him look any better than average but I'm happy to take your word for it man.

At present I would argue that RB is our priority. If Lustig can't hasn't got the legs for it and Janko keeps up his last 4 displays then we desperately need a new guy in. Someone in the dependable Andy Hinkel mould.

24 Aug 2016 19:32:53
ed091 maybe winning trophies, the CL and good wage is what they want rather than money and no medals? I know they have the cash to show for the career.

{Ed091's Note - youre right, theyre both signing so they can win a 1 horse race.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 20:31:52
Cheers ed091 with regards to wages I was told the marquee signing was not coming for the money but for the prestige of playing for club in Europe and to win trophies! Which makes me think this particular player may not have won much in career having played at high level 🤔🤔 what's your thoughts?

{Ed091's Note - a club in europe after 3 seasons out despite being the only team capable of winning their division.... A scottish team in the CL is simply making up the numbers. If sakho or lucas want a massive wage drop, to move to scotland and be embarrassed in the CL group stages, then sure, celtic are signing them both. you heard it here first.

Wrong ed091 we have not had 3 years out of Europe. This is the first time in three years we have qualified for the group stages of the cl. Can I ask you a question too ed091. What would have to the EPL if sky decided to pull out . and the only reason your league is bigger is because of sky TV money. If we had that kind of investment up here from sky our league would be as just as good as yours.

{Ed091's Note - are you as deluded as BR? There are many reasons, which don't include money, as to why the spl doesnt come close to the epl. Location: who'd live in Motherwell over London?
Who would want to play in front of (majority) of minuscule grounds when you can play in front of old Trafford, anfield etc.
The weather, the food, the lack of home grown talent in Scotland and the fact it's a 1 team league, makes it an unappealing league.
It's really nothing to do with money.

Ed, One name that hasn't been mentioned this transfer window is Martin Odegaard at Real Madrid. Is there still an interest in him or did that end when Ronny left.

{Ed007's Note - He'll either be loaned to another Spanish team or stay at Madrid.}

Cheers Ed, One more question if you have time. If we draw Man City in Groups stage can we play Roberts against them, Assuming we don't buy him this week and its still the 18month loan deal.

{Ed007's Note - Going back to when Atletico Madrid had Chelsea's Thibaut Courtois on loan, UEFA said that:

'Both the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations contain clear provisions which strictly forbid any club to exert, or attempt to exert, any influence whatsoever over the players that another club may (or may not) field in a match. It follows that any provision in a private contract between clubs which might function in such a way as to influence who a club fields in a match is null, void and unenforceable so far as UEFA is concerned.
Furthermore, any attempt to enforce such a provision would be a clear violation of both the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations and would therefore be sanctioned accordingly.'

Basically even if there is such a clause in the loan deal it is not enforceable under UEFA statutes.}

Might not be able to inforce it but think it could wreck our good relationship with city though.

Roberts stated at the start of the season that if the situation arose then he would play against them.
Also remember Courtois being allowed to play for Atletico Madrid v Chelsea when he was on loan a few years back.
