Looking at the players BR has been chasing i wonder how many of the development team will be released in the summer. BR seems to want power pace and strength alongside skill. The development squad have a lot of skill and some pace but do they have the commitment in training to add strength and power. Nesbitt has been a stand out for Morton this year but has not developed physically, Henderson too has not looked any stronger, Ajer has gone on loan he too will have to do more work in the gym. I am sure lots of these players will go on to have successful in average careers in pro football but if they don't knuckle down and do the hard work they won't get near this celtic team

I get the feeling he just doesn't fancy Henderson, especially when he's talking up the chances of guys like Boyata before him.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Jan 2017 23:26:50
Like Henderson and would prefer him to McGregor and Bitton but he hasn't seemed to impress BR or even the previous manager, so he must not be projecting or applying himself in training etc.
However if we are looking at CL standard signings he may well have to go out on loan or sadly for me - leave Celtic.

For ed007 and u lads . Seen a press clip of Rodgers speaking . The links with bojan, Mccarthy have been there for a while . Tonight brendan said he thinks 1 more signing is possible and the option is there if it can be pushed over the line?

Any idea who? As eboue was out the blue .

I have faith in brendan but his comments on boyata? A hope were tongue in cheek n trying to fool someone into buying him lol

{Ed007's Note - I've don't see Bojan as a realistic option as Stoke are unwilling to reduce their £12m valuation of him.
As I said the other day regarding McCarthy, Celtic and Newcastle are the two options on the table - WBA signed Livermore after getting tired of Everton's stalling on making a decision - and there's a slim chance of Everton trying to use him in part of a deal to get Kone from Sunderland which I can't see happening as I doubt McCarthy wants to get involved in a relegation battle that they already look like losing.
I wouldn't be at all surprised to see Boyata given a chance over the next few months to prove he has a long term future at the Club.}

Maybe the Portuguese lad

{Ed007's Note - I can't see Madrid selling him... but we can all dream ;-)

We'd have to supply a sunbed for him if we were to tempt him to Glasgow so I can't see it myself :)

{Ed007's Note - I'm surprised nobody's thought about opening a sunbed shop in Glasgow.}

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Jan 2017 20:37:22
Your on form tonight lad :)

{Ed007's Note - I was down in Hamilton town centre at the opticians last week and that's all there seems to be - oh and pawn shops/money lenders. I've not been to Glasgow in ages but I imagine there's loads of them in there too.}

Agree0 0Disagree

its the same here in the Peoples Republic Of Clydebank ed lol.

I'd say so funny you mentioning money lenders don't know how many Glasgow has but I'm sure anyone from sevco wouldn't be welcome :)

{Ed007's Note - Can you imagine what colour Kenny Miller would be if TRIFC were laundering money through a sunbed shop!}

23 Jan 2017 20:53:37
Most streets in Scotland go, bookie, pub, Kebab shop, tanstand, repeat. It wouldn't take a genius to figure out why we've got a struggling health service. Think it's time to start a revolution, who's in? Tories n labour have had their day

Orange? Lol do they let pensioners into them shops :)

{Ed007's Note - Kenny'll soon be cutting about like the old biddy that was in Benidorm.}

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Jan 2017 21:37:36
He should be the same colour as his neck- a brassy tinge after all his deluded sevco comments. And still no sign of a deal for him, poor lad, no more fancy meals in Bothwell for Kenny boy

I have to admit that the class and therefore cost of Bojan would make it extremely doubtful for me he would come. Would be great though.

Bojan Krkic - Goals and Skills.

ed i notice watching motd2 here that david marshall has been dropped by hull maybe now is the time to bring him back? even though you've heard we are looking at adrian.

{Ed007's Note - I'd take Marshall back but I doubt he's available.}

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jan 2017 23:30:51
money talks ed, 3m should do it lol.

{Ed007's Note - I reckon he'd be snapped up by another English team at that price.}

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jan 2017 23:57:18
he's a celtic fan ed so i would be hoping the old heart would bring him running back up the road (and a decent wage lol)

Agree7 1Disagree

23 Jan 2017 07:47:40
He's been away for a while now and surely made decent money, perhaps the lure of Champions League football and a few more trophies would do the trick as well as a nice wage.

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Jan 2017 12:10:40
Craig Gordon is a far superior goal keeper than Marshall. Don't rate the boy at all.

Agree1 9Disagree

23 Jan 2017 16:09:12
Marshall is a better keeper than what we have. Has turned into a very steady keeper.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Jan 2017 16:11:58
bollocks he's ten times the keeper gordon is, ed007 might even say twenty times better lol.

{Ed007's Note - I have said that Gordon deserves to be a No.1 'keeper, just not at Celtic.}

Agree3 0Disagree

23 Jan 2017 16:24:32
i think gordon is a good keeper ed, i just think marshall is better, plus the fact he is a celtic fan gives him that extra incentive to do well for us, watching boruc recently he seems to have went backwards as a keeper, which is a shame as he was a great keeper when he was on his game.

{Ed007's Note - As you see on the live chat I do give Gordon a fair bit of praise during matches but I'd definitely take Marshall over him. Boruc is nearly 37 so it's no surprise that he's slowing down.}

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Jan 2017 16:40:34
i think the bevvy has caught up with artur ed lol.

{Ed007's Note - Didn't I read a while back that he had knocked it on the head?}

Arturs been using ma patter Ed-'Am no pished av juist gote a sare leg! ' 🍀

{Ed007's Note - :-D

23 Jan 2017 16:58:07
he was at fault with a couple of goals at the weekend i was reading howe wants to replace him with begovic of chelsea, i miss him upsetting the huns, i always remember my brother phoning me at the end of the 3-2 game from his holiday when i was at the game to join in with the celebrations and him being in stitches when i told him artur was running about with a pope john paul the second t-shirt on lol.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Jan 2017 19:21:47
If we had boruc in 2003 we would've won the uefa cup. A good keeper was all that team was missing.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Jan 2017 19:35:31
Agreed Steph-but Boruc cannae lay brick like Big Rab-Every keeper has gote their strengths and weaknesses. 🍀

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Jan 2017 20:05:02
Haha a met big rab the crab before, cracking big guy, should've never been our keeper for that long tho. A good keeper tends to be a crackpot on and off the field, ie boruc

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Jan 2017 21:03:07
Steph-it's quite amazing that 2 of the best keepers I've seen at Celtic Park in 50 plus years have been in very recent times-Boruc and Forster 🍀

Ed is there any truth in the bojan rumour always liked him as a player

{Ed007's Note I just can't see us paying the money it would take to make it happen, the fee, signing fee and wages - and the source of the story is questionable at best.}

Agree0 1Disagree

22 Jan 2017 23:56:01
Who was the source you heard it from ed, anyone we know?

{Ed007's Note - I can't tell you that unless you've got a Paypal account. :-D

Agree0 1Disagree

23 Jan 2017 00:10:56
I don't Ed, ginger bottles do you?

{Ed007's Note - I'm diabetic!!! Och alright then, it was Phil Mac that brought it back up this weekend. You do know you need to go and give him money now I've told you that, don't you? ;-)

Agree0 1Disagree

23 Jan 2017 11:40:52
Get your point Ed but in fairness to the Scottish/ Irish wordsmith, anyone who annoys Sevco as much as he does deserves a little bit of praise. He does have "rugger chap" to square up after all!

{Ed007's Note - He annoys a lot more than Sevco and their fans lol.}

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Jan 2017 13:55:22
Agreed but he certainly gets their backs up, long may it continue I say. I also got told that there's plenty of money for Mr Rodgers to spend, over our transfer record amount, if the right player becomes available. Now is the time to strengthen our club, we have not done this before and the sons of mordor came back. We are in a position of strength, bury them pistol Pete, don't waste this opportunity

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Jan 2017 18:28:58
John James seems to do a lot of rubbing them up the wrong way also. If his sources ( questionable) are true? Some of it makes interesting reading . Even if only to amuse lol

{Ed007's Note - Now that's what you call a full blown space cadet lol The Sunday Sport's more believable than him.}

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Jan 2017 19:52:52
True Delbhoy, another man who rips into them big time. Not sure about his exclusives but they are worth it if only for the annoyance factor to followers of Greyskull. Keep it up I say

Is Rogic fit?

Is there any chance we could sign Roberts permanently?

Straight choice of the 'big names' mentioned who would you go for?

Roberts or McCarthy?

Myself - Roberts

22 Jan 2017 21:09:53
Roberts for me too Island Celt every day of the week 🍀

Roberts

Agree2 0Disagree

22 Jan 2017 21:23:16
Roberts came on the pitch and showed why he should be our key signing, creates many more opportunities than JF, he is the only signing we need, the other youth players will be ready come start of next season fighting for places

Agree2 1Disagree

22 Jan 2017 22:16:37
Lads too different kind of players but to be honest Roberts would give me more of a woody between him and McCarthy pardon my French . This is the year to let the lions roar wee shall remember

22 Jan 2017 22:56:42
Roberts more direct but Forest seems to tire them out and then Roberts comes on. Would take him in a heartbeat but heard we were in for Bojan from Stoke. Couldn't afford both so Roberts all day long for me, he's here, knows the club and think he would stay if clubs could sort it out. Come on Mr Lawwell, do the deal

Agree3 1Disagree

22 Jan 2017 22:49:31
Like Roberts but mc Carthy would be here for as long as wanted adding stability to team long term brown can't go on forever

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jan 2017 23:42:07
It would be almost like fantasy football manager if we could sign Roberts and McCarthy and bolster the defence with a CL standard right back and younger keeper?
Today showed the class Roberts brings to the team even when he makes 'cameo' appearances and even though Bitton had a stroll in the park against the wee rovers - imagine the difference in pace and potency with McCarthy in his place alongside Brown and Armstrong.
We really do have the makings of something special here when you add Sinclair, Dembele, Rogic and Tierney.

Agree3 0Disagree

23 Jan 2017 21:46:29
It would be great if we could get Roberts signed if not another year on loan will do.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jan 2017 20:35:15
Not a great game today, but we don't play well on artifical turf. My big complaint was what does Biton bring to the team, he does not influence the game no cutting passes no shots on goal no big tackles. everything goes sideways or backwards does not stamp any authority upon the opposition. Not my favourite player

Agree4 0Disagree

22 Jan 2017 21:25:24
Thought Bitton, had been told he could leave, or is that a non story?

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jan 2017 22:18:53
Agree totally re Biton. Although today he never really made any mistakes never brings much to the party imo.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Jan 2017 00:21:27
Albion to thier credit ran and ran. Did thier best. I've not been a fan of biton for a while but in that type of game and his role in that game I don't think he put a foot wrong. What more did he really have to do? They were set out, full team to defend. All we he had to do was sit deep, keep calm possession, pass round them backwards and to the side while the rest of the front line took the pis$.
CG and the cbs were poor as well today. done nothing of merit. I'm livid haha

Ed will probably be there too as he's his biggest fan he can't get enough of Rod Stewart.

{Ed007's Note - It was my dad that warned me off him lol. The guy's a knob and his music's garbage. In fact, I hope his next shite's a hedgehog!

{Ed007's Note - Is he still doing that? I gave up on it when he started that nonsense. I will say that in the pic with BFDJ he's the spitting image of Junior Burns that scored the winner against Rangers for Murderwell at Ibrox back in the 80s - or Woody from the Bay Shitty Rollers.}

Seem to remember Sean Connery doing the same kinda thing (in reverse) . I had a 'wee green book' in the sixties and he was posing with the Lions, big jock and the Kelly's. Then when we were struggling, he was aw palsy walsy with David Murray and EBT Utd.
