Good to see Bayo on the bench hopefully get the game wrapped up early and see what he’s got.

06 Feb 2019 18:45:29
Like the look of the side tonight. Great to see bayo on the subs. Might get to see him tonight as some stage. Amazing when u think what not available.

05 Feb 2019 16:21:50
Bayo left out of the European squad.

As I said, told you so ladies :p

Pretty much suggests he is another project though

The loan signings will be good for 6 months but summer is going to be vital the board pull their finger out.

Castagne going from 6mil to 9mil I kinda agreed it was right to reject.

However keeping an eye on him in Serie A and the damage he's doing from right back id say 9mil could be a bargain.

Aye, you told us. So did Sutton and about 250000 others. It was a no brainer.

But we’ll done l, mate. You showed us.

05 Feb 2019 17:39:18
I knew someone would bite. Well done. You have won the gullible award of the season.

05 Feb 2019 19:09:46
Are you supercooper I’m disguise?

I'm your old primary school teacher and the word you were looking for is *in.

06 Feb 2019 12:30:22
Our future number 10! and Celtic captain, young Tim, Timmy Timalloy Weir is similar in style to one of our former very own, legends! none other than, King, King Henrik, King Henrik Larssen! I truly believe that our scouting and our legendary manager, none other than the great and not yet late, Mr Sir Brendinium Eamon O'Rodgers will bring us 10 in a row!

Hats off to Mr Pete, Peetsie, Peter Lawwell for bringing Tim Weir and "Good fun on the Bayo" to our glorious club

Hail Hail!

The Celts are here!

06 Feb 2019 13:00:17
rubbish patter Tesla you sound like you're still at school.

06 Feb 2019 13:02:41
haha brilliant.

06 Feb 2019 13:20:33
Oh I've caught another fish. I'm casting wider nets than our transfer policy here.

06 Feb 2019 15:58:25
and when we have won 10 you'll still be fishing and be careful and don't worry about us having a couple of six month loans as if I was youI'd be more worries about the loan sharks circling at ibrox.

07 Feb 2019 00:36:50
Lol donjim I'm no zombie. ST holder and attend all home games.

Side note - I don't leave 20 mins before full time either.

10 in a row will be good to wind them up to the maximum, but in reality it should be easy.

Our competition died years ago and if it became close run again it would be through our own mistakes before it will be their qualities.

07 Feb 2019 12:56:17
Point taken and indeed this time I agree with you. I also apologise if several of your posts laid me to believe you were of the blue persuasion. I disagree with the spend, spend, spend mentality as it caused the demise of Rangers and I don't believe world class players want to come to Scotland as people like Larsson are an anomaly rather than the norm.

07 Feb 2019 18:07:30
Thing is donjim spending didn't cause the people demise.

They spent tax money that wasn't theirs to spend and owed a lump sum. That's theft.

If we have £50 mil in bank and spend £20. It means we are still millions in profit

People have a lot of fear cos they died but it's 2 totally different things.

Nobody expects world class players but we could certainly attract better than we have in recent years.

The frustration is settling to be just better than rangers which was fair enough when they had class sides

But they are nothing now so we should be aiming to become a decent European side.

No saying to win or reach finals but to be a respectable side at that level which in recent times we have been a bit embarrassing to be honest, truth be told.

Saying anything negative angers Celtic fans though even if it's true hahaha.

04 Feb 2019 17:59:33
Mate, we've been fine without him. Liability! Get rid!

04 Feb 2019 18:52:04
We've been fine with either ajer or benko playing. but they won't be on wed. I'm not keen on boyata after the summer debacle but I would rather him at CH than Hendry.

04 Feb 2019 19:07:45
It's a tough one because Boyata's a far better player than Hendry currently but what message does it send when we've got half a defence fit and he still can't get in ahead of a guy who isn't interested?

04 Feb 2019 19:44:28
Exactly kev. Boyata should never play for us again I'd rather play a youth player than him.

04 Feb 2019 21:09:22
I hear everything people are saying about Hendry, but in his defence he has not been played in his prefered position and without a run in the team nor a regular partner.
Watching Ajer and Siminovic play together I get the feeling this is the pairing in practise matches and in training. They look confortable with one and other likewise Boyata and Benekovic.
He has been played at RB and on right of a three he plays like Ajer in style and physical appearance and i would prefer Hendry or Bitton to Boyata. We have looked much better with ball playing defenders. Boyata may have a role to play in difficult away matches and I would like us to play 3 central defenders at Valencia and Ibrokes and maybe at Pittodrie and Tynecastle.

04 Feb 2019 21:29:54
I appreciate a lot of us don’t want to play Boyata, but unfortunately it’s not worked out for Hendry with us. It seems every mistake he makes costs a goal, personally if he was to play and we dropped points a lot of the fans on here would be moaning about playing him. I honestly can’t see a future for Hendry which is a shame as he has pace and a big lad but like I said earlier , every mistake he makes is getting punished. I’d rather play Boyata and win the league, than take a risk just for pride . If we were 10/ 12 points clear I’d say bomb Boyata out as well.

04 Feb 2019 22:46:21
Our fans have already destroyed Hendry . In facts the fans that abused him from stands or in social media should be banned from both Celtic Park and social media.

05 Feb 2019 19:24:52
Really don't understand the anti Boyata sentiment. He gets paid for us to do a job and as long as Celtic pay his wages he's our player and a professional. I agree with Quinn1888 in this argument in that I'd rather win with Boyata than risk. Most footballers nowadays follow the money. They commit themselves for a period of time 3-4 years then see if they can get better wages elsewhere. Who among us, if offered twice the wages, would not leave our jobs in a heartbeat.

05 Feb 2019 20:14:25
A professional w@nk€r that's refused to play for us when we needed him most.

05 Feb 2019 21:30:32
Donjim Celtic were also paying his wages when he made himself unavailable for selection in the CL qualifiers against Athens. An unforgivable act imo. Not doubting he has played well this season but for me he should never have been given the opportunity after what he did.

05 Feb 2019 22:12:50
DonJim, I would move for double my wages but I don’t get paid £15k/ week. What can these guys buy with £30k/ week that they can’t afford on £15k/ week?

07 Feb 2019 03:02:46
A bigger yacht or a couple of shares in amazon.

03 Feb 2019 14:34:30
Every window we have the same discussions around transfer targets, budgets, feed etc. It highlights the difficulties in bringing in quality and when we do they are invariably sold on in a year or two.

For me the core strength of Celtic is the Scotsman in the team. KT, Calum Mac, broony, Forrest, Christie, griff etc.

With broony on a final two year deal I say build the team around calmac in broonys role. Make KT captain after brown and invest more and more in youth development

Look abroad if it suits us / business model etc. But the longevity comes more from the homegrown. There's obviously exceptions (larsson! ) but in today's market I say develop our own.

Agree10 0Disagree

04 Feb 2019 09:39:44
We have Dembele and Okoflex doing well and likely to make the breakthrough soon as well as Henderson. Hopefully Aitchison can kick on a bit now too.

04 Feb 2019 10:51:05
Kier mcinroy cdm isn't that far away either. dembele imo still needs more time aitcheson a bit ahead of okoflex and in a br team as attackers their height and build will go against them like to see aitcheson on loan to an all club to see if he can cut it at that level.

04 Feb 2019 13:08:33
It's becoming a strength of this team that its core is home grown. I definitely think that will be added to in the future too. It would be impossible to have 11 Scots starting but I'd say having at least half the squad come from the development team would be extremely successful.
There would surely be the finance then to spend more on the players we do buy.

04 Feb 2019 19:51:25
I seen a photo today of okoflex and dembele training next to ntcham, I don't remember ntcham being the biggest but he made those 2 look tiny. Both need to bulk up, having said that it's encouraging to see them around the squad.

04 Feb 2019 21:59:01
Seen that an hour after posting they was training with the squad. Got some exciting prospects in the making with Johnston looking like he'll progress in to a cracking player too.

04 Feb 2019 22:49:15
Celtic especially under Brendan Rodgers have already began building from their academy and youth . Many of our signing are teenagers or players just out of their teens.

03 Feb 2019 11:16:54

Celtic XI v St Johnstone: Bain; Lustig, Simunovic, Ajer, Izaguirre; Brown, McGregor; Forrest, Christie, Sinclair; Burke.

Always comes back injured from Australia!

01 Feb 2019 21:00:36
Always gets injured full stop.

01 Feb 2019 23:07:28
for me he won't be missed that much, doesn't do enough in enough games for me.
Last season he played 23 PL games scored 5 with 4 assists.
If it wasn't for him scoring against Sevco and in the cup I don't think he would have the hero status he has.

02 Feb 2019 08:56:31
Totally agree the most over rated player in our squad. Surely that new contract has to have appearance related wages.

31 Jan 2019 22:56:59
Mulumbu. Commper. Gamboa. De Vries. (Hayes? Allen? Hendry? )

These seem to be the worst sort of signings in retrospect: reactionary impulse-buys. But did they get a fair shake?

Agree0 0Disagree

31 Jan 2019 23:21:22
Hendry will improve and play a part for us
Hayes was unlucky with the leg break and being up against our best attacking player in Sinclair
The rest were just not right for one reason or another.
In Allen we sent a better player on loan to hibs in young Henderson.

31 Jan 2019 23:25:35
Hayes was rotten before leg break. Really failed to impress against Linfield slippery slope from there.

01 Feb 2019 00:11:10
Footballs not as simple as being a good or bad player.

For me Hayes would never suit our style. He likes to go wide and cross balls in. We don't play like that, bizarre signing.

De Vries was simply terrible.

Gamboa had a hard time tbh, given games once every few months. Sometimes against world class sides then judged on it

Mulumbu would suit a Strachan style side. Strict positioning etc. Rodgers style requires a lot of movement and more agility in the midfield. Shame cos he's no as bad as people make out.

Hendry is just terrible. Compper injuries make it impossible. Allan. Who knows what that was about.

01 Feb 2019 01:54:35
Most of these guys would have done well in other Celtic teams but if you look at the players they’re trying to compete with, it’s a hard gig to break into that team. While they remain at the club, they still give us value as strength in depth and keep the first team players on toes.

01 Feb 2019 02:58:31
Kev I don’t post as much as I want to on here cos you generally post what I’m thinking 1st. But in this case I disagree I’d love Hendry to come good bit he’s a project that hasn’t and won’t work out just not good enough. Hayes is another who would probably run through a brick wall for us but in fairness so would I if I had the chance another not good enough.
Happy with the window tho never saw Burke as a no9 but that’s only from what I read of the bhoy but think he could do us a turn their prefer to see eddy in behind he’s got that killer pass in his locker. Weah looks a player but not as a lone striker. Agreed with you all along on sinky people don’t seem to see the overall contrite brings to the team
All in all up front we’ve got players far superior to the rest and as for our weak defence can anyone name an spl player we would have in place of any of them?
Here we go 10iar.

01 Feb 2019 07:18:11
Welshy Jack Hendry has only been here a short time and was hung out to dry this season. Ye he is raw but he does have the attributes to improve.

01 Feb 2019 08:13:09
Tesla you have contradicted yourself regarding Hendry. End of the day he needs more game time and at start of season it was looking likely Christie would be away but look what happened there.

Hendry needs a loan spell to get regular top flight football as he has potential. Personally I think he is a better option than Scott mckenna.

01 Feb 2019 09:14:12
If you look at Hendry’s performance in the Aberdeen game at CP in Sept, he’s got all the hallmarks of a top quality CB. I think he’ll develop.

01 Feb 2019 09:52:17
Hendry is still young and has plenty of good attributes but needs time to mature and needs to be playing each week to learn from the mistakes. CB’s don’t often peek in their early 20’s, Hendry could do with playing with a team like Aberdeen for 18months.

01 Feb 2019 09:56:58
In the past I was a Hendry fan because I felt he looked comfortable on the ball and central defenders improve by age and experience.
Now I believe that Hendry can't do basic defending.
Against partick thistle in the cup he ran beside the goalscorer without as much as a challenge. He then found himself out of the squad for the next 5 games and then 1 game after that he was an unused sub. In those 6 matches Celtic conceded only 1 goal which was away from home in europe.
At that time Celtic looked quite comfortable at the back, then comes the killie away game where Brendan made a few changes.
Hendry comes in from the wilderness and in my opinion caused the 2 goals we conceded because he can't do basic defending.
When burke scored the equaliser hendry refused to try and close him down and gave him a free pop at goal and then the winner he lost the goalscorer he was marking at a corner.
As I said before I could see potential because he is good on the ball but the boy can't defend and you can't teach those basic defending skills like tackle, close down your opponent and don't easily lose your man at a set piece.
From that day I knew Hendry was not going to make it at Celtic which is unfortunate.

01 Feb 2019 10:05:18
Where have I contradicted myself?

He had a fair run of games and was hopeless. Why do you think he's our last choice CB right now? Even Rodgers said he needs to develop more.

He's not 18 either, he's almost 24 in a few months. So when will he be ready? 27?

As for Christie, I never said Christie was a bad player. I actually always said Christie was a good player even before his loan to Aberdeen.

01 Feb 2019 11:05:05
Footballs not as simple as being a good or bad player. "

Well Tesla if your saying that do you not think Hendry deserves a chance of regular football on a loan spell considering fact he has only played a grand total of 70 professional first team games in his whole career at age 24? Surely you will agree he is inexperienced at age 24 and a loan spell to a team like Aberdeen would do him well?

Was using Ryan Christie as an example of how successful his loan spell was.

01 Feb 2019 12:11:49
I don't and can't see at any time that Hendry will come good yes he has had one decent game but that's it I am sure he is 23? So not really a young man as far as a footballer is concerned I am sure he is a good lad but not a good enough player for us I really hope he can prove me wrong.

01 Feb 2019 13:15:56
Tony2bhoy he is not going to come good unless he gets game time. Also most CB come good at 26/ 28 so he still has time on his hands.

01 Feb 2019 16:10:56
IMO Hayes isn’t good enough for Celtic.

01 Feb 2019 18:55:31
There are many Celtic fans who think nobody playing for other club in Spl are good enough for Celtic . There are also many Celtic fans with the benefit of hindsight love to say many players Celtic had signed were not good enough . It is easy to decide afterwards but I am sure our recruitment staff felt that if things worked out everyone could do a job . Injuries, loss of form, not able to adjust to big club, all can affect new players . It's a bit of a gamble with most transfers but if the new player gets off to a good start, they usually come good.

01 Feb 2019 19:58:34
I would partly agree Hibsboy, Hayes isn’t good enough for this Celtic team but in a different era he’d have gotten into the team and done well. Hendry is a different proposition. He’s young and needs to gain experience. How many of us thought Ryan Christie would be a first choice AM when he came back from Aberdeen? I think we should be careful with Hendry as we should have been with Andy Robertson when we had him.

01 Feb 2019 20:28:29
It's got nothing to do with him being from SPL for me.

I liked Hartley, Robson, McDonald etc

Hendry looks like he's a long way from being ready. Mentally he looks like playing for a big club intimidates him

He's replying to people criticising him on Facebook.

No room for being a snowflake at a club of this size. If you play poor you should be told and criticised.

That's why we are a big club.

We could try and develop hendry in next couple of seasons, but why?

We can easily attract a player twice his ability. It's to our detriment waiting for inferior players to catch up.

03 Feb 2019 09:53:05
I thought mulumbu done well in games I seen him, away to red bull in particular (I think) he was our only midfielder who won a tackle n passed it well.

Probably the right option v them in January as well tbh. Allan seemed like a Rodgers type player, guess its hard when 2 out of 3 spots in mf are taken wi Broon n calmac so only 1 spot up for grabs for the other 4 CMs.

03 Feb 2019 10:53:49
If, as has been suggested, Mulumbu was the dressing room tout who was telling stories to Fatman Kris Boyd then I'm glad he has gone. Obviously I have no definite knowledge and am commenting only on the rumour which may be right or wrong.
He did look like a talented lad when he was at Killie though and I had hoped he could have brought something a bit different to our side. Obviously he won't play against us for the rest of the season so I hope he can do some damage to the sides around us in the league. HH.
