Caught a bit of gossip from Embra, McGinn to Celtic for 2.5m plus Allen and add ons. Hibs also want a loan deal on a younger player. Hibs fan so who knows.

Agree1 1Disagree

13 May 2018 10:41:23
Kouassi, Miller or Henderson maybe?

13 May 2018 11:08:14

13 May 2018 11:14:53
Oh and the Hibs boys fancy a 6-0 v sevco! What a laugh if they got three inside 60-70 minutes!

13 May 2018 17:49:34
Give them £2m, Allan and Hayes plus Christie on loan .

13 May 2018 19:51:57
i just spoke to John's girlfriends granddad there in the pub, there has been no offer off Celtic yet, but it would be more than welcomed.

16 May 2018 23:53:00
Would take £3m and Alan.

12 May 2018 12:58:30
I think we can all agree the things have not worked out for paddy this year due to injury, it's a pity as he is a quality player. He wants to play in the EPL next year so fair play to him. Will be interested to see the ins and outs this summer, I think there could be a lot of changes in the squad due to players wanting to leave, not getting game time etc.

Agree3 0Disagree

12 May 2018 15:40:17
That RB from Fulham would be a good signing Fredricks quick and good going forward and seems like a not bad defender, out of contract at the end of the season supposedly 👍🏼.

13 May 2018 10:11:53
Can see Roberts at Leicester if Mahrez gets his City move

Wish him all the best, Edouard apart our loans gave not been hugely successful and I hope we ditch them.

Would rather see if our own players can make the step up.

11 May 2018 08:10:32
Fabian Schar has been linked to us in the Spanish media? Apparently a €4m euro release clause and a very expeirienced defender. Anyone heard anything further?

Agree1 0Disagree

11 May 2018 12:17:22
Swiss International, European experience, seems to score a good amount of goals from CB and at 26 is probably just coming into his peak. Ticks a lot of boxes.

11 May 2018 12:52:09
My thinking exactly Kev! He was Basel’s Penalty taker, got a decent conversion rate from the spot! Wonder if any of the EDs hold information on him? I’m thinking there could be something in this as he played for Hoffenheim, which may link back to congerton from his time in the bundesliga.

11 May 2018 14:57:09
I was hoping he was just really dominant at corners Ken.

11 May 2018 15:16:10
I would be happy with this for that sort of price. He's comfortable on the ball dribbling out from the back and spraying passes. Would suit our style. Good age and experience of playing at the top level too.

11 May 2018 16:18:49
He sounds like an ideal candidate. which means we probably will keep Boyata lol.

11 May 2018 18:50:40
He sounds like the ideal candidate. Which means we will probably sign his da.

11 May 2018 21:14:59
And to top it all off he's left footed! Would be over the moon if this is true.

12 May 2018 00:17:16
A great amount of excitement for someone we are probably not interested in signing.

12 May 2018 01:30:46
@tompo88 thought he was right footed?
OMC- wheesht. A 4m 26yr old cb international is a decent place to start. A Spanish hack/ agent kicked this all off. Not a bad or unrealistic target. At least the dafty transfer link train is off and rolling. You'll probably get a cut price fare for a wee day trip or two. Hop on.

12 May 2018 11:01:18
On second check you're correct rglen8 he is indeed right footed, just getting confused as Fifa I played him LCB due to his 4 star weak foot lol.

12 May 2018 11:11:36
Guilty as well. thank God for the old fifa database haha.

12 May 2018 12:41:41
OMC that's what the close season is for. Reading rubbish about who we are being connected to and getting excited about it.
How boring would it be if we didnt.

12 May 2018 16:26:21
Watched a couple of video's (yes I know) but this guy looks well worth 4 mill one video was his highlights v Real Madrid and although they lost 3-0 he looked impressive.

19 May 2018 01:49:29
I hate the close season and the twelve billion connections to players we never sign. We all know what we need, what we don’t know is who we will go for. We can’t compete with the richer clubs and as soon as you read an epl team are also in for a player that immediately rules them out.

I’m hoping we have already a list, but, the last two defensive signings shows me at least the limitations of any list that would have had Comparre and Hendrybat the top of it. Hendry may or may not fit the bill, but not now. I have my doubts he ever will reach the level we need if we are to move to the next level.

He can’t get a game now and we have players we know have Achilles heels, that doesn’t fill me with hope. He’s another project. Compare baffled me. It still does.

We had a game against Zenit after the new year and all knew defensively we needed vast improvement. These two were not that. Those kind of buys again in the summer will see us again entering a CL qualifiers with a weak and vulnerable defence.

Boyata is a perplexing and at times infuriating player. When he is good he is very good. His concentration and risk taking has us all reaching for the valium. He has had no competition, even after bringing in two CB’s. That isn’t good enough in recruitment terms.

I hope whoever is on the new list is capable right now.

I will read all the rumours though. I’m like a moth to a flame. Just get it done Celtic. If we do, 10 will be the least of the worries for our deluded neighbours. The savings to our NHS in reduced Valium prescriptions alone is a good reason. My sanity for me is up there too. :)

11 May 2018 07:33:03
In the rags today, Rangers after John McGinn.

I very much doubt it because Hibs have him valued at 5 million.

Agree3 0Disagree

11 May 2018 09:04:52
Thats fine mate because windyass will go for three plus add-ons. In fact some think they should hold out for five. that's the level of rank stupidity we dealing with here.

11 May 2018 10:13:20
And I’m signing for Man City to replace Aguero.

Keep that to yourself though.

11 May 2018 10:29:53
Makes sense. The 12mill they didn't spend on Rooney can now be used for mcginn with 7million profit. simples.

11 May 2018 13:05:32
Ludicrous to value McGinn at anything over 1.5 million.

11 May 2018 17:14:26
Kev to be fair McGinn could go to a Championship side and Hibs would get £2 to £3mill for him. He is a decent player and still young so spending £3mill in decent championship side is not a risk really. don't know if I fancy him any more than Kouassi and he cost us £3mill.

11 May 2018 18:52:18
is aguero going to rangers? just as MP is going to man city, Aguero MUST be going to rangers, surely.

11 May 2018 21:29:14
More chance of me and James McClean joining the Saltcoats orange flute band than there is of John McGinn joining sevco, i know what John said when he heard it, i will give you a clue, the second word was off.

11 May 2018 23:30:52
Jamesbhoy67 you’ve said before you know him and his family. Have they given any indication that there’s a potential move to the hoops in the summer. I’m hoping maybe a bid of £2m-£3m plus Scott Allan will be enough to do a deal.

12 May 2018 01:53:45
Didn't think of the Allan chip, it's worth the ask but I don't see it being a big factor. He has no future here and wants to go there. Hibs will be savvy enough to know celtic would take 500k in a heartbeat which isn't much if they are after 4m+ with a few clubs interested. It will come down to where the hair goes and if BR rates McGinn head and shoulders above kouassi as they are fighting for the same spot with brown (ncham, mcgregor, sa and biton are all on the books in there as well) . The only time we would need 2 or 3dmfs on the park is against the best in Europe under the cosh in a 4321 or to see out a 1-0 lead. I'm still not convinced we need to spend 4/ 5million there.

12 May 2018 09:26:37
James Mc Clean is a sensible and realistic suggestion . Hard working amd commitment wouldn't be doubted on at least a par with what we have .
As for Roberts, time to shoo him off to get caught in the cogs of the PL conveyor belt .

12 May 2018 13:12:10
Hi Ice Man, there has been no approach from Celtic yet, Cardiff and Burnley had scouts up watching him a few times in the last week.

13 May 2018 18:44:06
TTTS you might not be too far off with your fellow Derry man signing for Celtic.

16 May 2018 10:56:45
People all said the same nonsense when we spent about 4.5 million on Scott Brown.

before and after he signed, he's came good though. People forget when you sign the likes of McGinn they then get chance to develop and improve also.

I think he is a good player and what our skillful midfielders like McGregor, Armstrong lack a bit of physical style as well.

Good passer but can dig in and wins possession back as well.

10 May 2018 19:11:04
First piece of the jigsaw for next season. Scott Bain signs 4 year deal.

Agree6 0Disagree

10 May 2018 20:53:57
Good signing which keeper is leaving now De Vrise I take it?

10 May 2018 21:13:12
Let's hope so.

10 May 2018 11:47:59
It has been announced that Celtic plan to install a state of the art sound and light system at Celtic Park costing £2.8m similar to the ones already installed in Amersterdam and Munich, Celtic also plan to spend a further £1.2m on the second part of laying a new hibrid pitch.
Meanwhile over at Ibrox, Mr King has asked their fans to bring torches to all night games, and asked the fans to bring grass seed to help with the new pitch installation.

Agree7 0Disagree

10 May 2018 13:43:15
Class. Some of the displays at the Allianz Arena (have a google) that are projected onto the pitch are amazing. Sure to get the place rocking.

10 May 2018 14:38:25
Jimmy bell spotted in B&Q buying three hundred boxes of fairy lights.

10 May 2018 16:04:20
I’d rather the money was spent on the team rather than speakers, lightbulbs and grass.

10 May 2018 17:39:39
That would buy a CH that might help us actually win some of those big games, that we tend to get our arses handed to us because our CH’s are not good enough.

Don’t get me wrong once they fix the defence and we win the odd home game in the CL great lights would put the tin hat on it.

Still wait until we get players though. I’m old fashioned and bells and whistles cut no ice when the team gets scudded at home.

10 May 2018 18:37:32
if there is no cl/ el then they can rent it out as an events venue = revenue. There's always a bigger picture.

10 May 2018 19:20:15
Have to agree with u iceman and magicpole. I know people will say that doesn't effect the transfer budget but it would go a long way to getting in a decent CH or maybe getting rogic or paddy to stay.

10 May 2018 21:29:29
You can't stand still . Being a big club also requires a ground worthy of such . There's a bigger picture .

10 May 2018 22:46:03
Yes, the bigger picture is not getting our arses handed to us, wether that’s in multicoloured lights or normal floodlights

I’m not against this, I just want a team that it’s worth putting these lights on for.

Fur coat and no knickers springs to mind.

Sort out the team.

10 May 2018 23:24:28
some people are never happy.
BR wanted the pitch improved to help the team and the board listened, If they had said no we will spend it on a player then the same people would complain that we aren't supporting the manager.
This kind of investment shows the orcs just how far ahead we are and that there criminal chairman is talking out his arse when he says that we would fold like a pack of cards if we lost just one title to them.
They couldn't afford £1 million for a player and we have spent double on a new pitch.
We are on course to win the treble again and we will have one of the best stadiums in Britain whilst our neighbours needs nets to stop there roof falling in on there heads.

11 May 2018 07:05:36
Let's just wait and see what our transfer activity will be before we criticise spending £4 million doing the stadium up. We have to keep the surroundings in order as well as a team on the pitch. Just look at the mob across the water, by all accounts castle greyskull is crumbling round about them due to being neglected for years. I've got to think if we're spending that kind of money on the stadium then we must have money available for recruitment, and to be honest i really don't think we need major surgery, yes defence definitely needs work done, but for me our first priority right now is getting rogic tied up on a new deal. Signings will come, it's all good enjoy it lads.

11 May 2018 07:36:00
do they still do paradise windfall? look closely at ticket all proceeds to stadium development fund. if its still the same, so you guys paid for it. thank you! and yes its another selling point for using CP as a venue for major sporting and music events. Progress.

11 May 2018 10:10:19
Nobody is against this. That’s not the point. It may be that there is enough money from whatever source to do this, but the fact remains, we lost all our home games. That situation needs changing and for me, that comes first.

Having a team that could win at home would make a multicoloured extravaganza in my mind without one new bulb.

Having these lights if the team doesn’t shine, will still have us in the dark.

If we can afford both then brilliant, the team comes first though. Every time.

11 May 2018 14:28:17
Does this kind of thing not just stop the club losing profit money on taxes? By reinvesting they are tying the money up. Correct me if i'm wrong.

Sure half the people complaining will be sharing the pictures when its done. Just saying.

12 May 2018 12:08:09
If you have wee bit extra you can always afford a pudding.

To hell with the poverty give the cat the budgie.
Light up paradise and the fans will come.

Sinclair upfront?

We doing a Craig Levein?

09 May 2018 18:54:06
Cotton wool effort?

09 May 2018 18:58:46
In Brendan We T. . . wtf?

09 May 2018 19:16:30
Aye cotton wool job.
Not worth risking anything before cup final.
Sinclair and Roberts have both played up top before so be one or the other at different times in the game 🤙🏼.

09 May 2018 19:23:16
Do we reckon this is a bye bye to Roberts, Simunovic and Armstrong? 😢.

09 May 2018 21:45:30
Waste of a ticket that.

11 May 2018 07:37:33
was torture to watch - they even had Kris Boyd on the goal line last 15 minutes and we ain't getting past that fat heid!

09 May 2018 08:09:09
Ed interesting comments by BR saying talks ongoing between PL and PSG and that PSG are happy with his progress here. Sounds to me like another loan deal on cards or am i just picking it up wrong. Hopefully it's permanent but even if he was to come back on loan for another season and we can get this deal done asap i'd be happy. Did you say recently his contract with PSG ends next year.

{Ed007's Note - Edouard's PSG deal runs to the summer of 2020, Stan.}

Agree0 0Disagree

09 May 2018 11:01:10
Ok cheers Ed, Do you know if PSG see him as a work in progress that they would like to keep or are we more than capable of getting a permanent deal done if we want to. I think he would be a sensation next season so would be happy even to see the loan extended.

{Ed007's Note - If PSG were overly keen to keep Edouard I doubt they would have agreed an option to sell him this summer. It's similar to Roberts situation at City - neither of those players are going to challenge players that cost tens of millions in transfer fees and wages, if Neymar goes to Madrid what's the chances of PSG replacing him with Edouard?
I said last week that I thought Lawwell would ask PSG to extend Edouard's loan (and possibly the buying option) for another season.}

09 May 2018 11:21:38
Makes sense as the price to buy next summer would be less so be a good bit of business. I was never a fan of loans but i can why they are done now, it takes away the risk factor when shelling out on an unknown. Good chance for club to assess before committing to a big outlay on fees and wages. With Edouard would he more than happy to see us buy asap though.

{Ed007's Note - I don't think it would have any real effect on the price except maybe minus another loan fee.}

09 May 2018 14:37:47
Would we have first refusal on the permanent move? If not I don't see any benefit to another loan deal.

06 May 2018 11:00:37

Any word on Leigh?

06 May 2018 15:42:05
Seemingly a bad teacake, sore belly and the squits the last day or so. Nothing athleticly wrong with the wee man. Mon the Griff.

06 May 2018 20:21:07
Ed any chance you could put up the vid on YouTube titled Celtic players celebrating the win over Sevco. Might give some clues to where Griff is. Still in Tenerife by the looks of it lol . Not got the tech knowledge to be able to do it myself.

{Ed007's Note - Have you got a link to it, Stevie?}

07 May 2018 14:15:30

08 May 2018 13:14:27
Ed 07, I understood Edouard has a hamstring and won’t feature again this season? Is that wrong?

{Ed007's Note - Yes.}

06 May 2018 00:25:15
Seems Musonda is away going by his instagram and a member of his family. Waste of money and a talent if true.

Agree1 1Disagree

06 May 2018 09:19:42
good player - but guess we didn't really need him!

06 May 2018 10:07:23
That one had disaster wrote all over it before he kick a ball for us .

06 May 2018 11:15:39
I don’t know anybody who didn’t think it was an excellent move.

06 May 2018 17:53:40
He’s hurt his shoulder and is going back to Chelsea for a checkup.

{Ed007's Note - I messaged Ed002 earlier on to ask if Musonda had been recalled:

"I am not aware of that being happening at this point. At the end of the season then it is likely if the clubs agree. I understand that the player did speak with TAF [Tore Andre Flo] a few weeks ago and TAF spoke with Rodgers - I assume it was about the lack of game time but I don't know. Celtic has paid for 18 months but Chelsea will find somewhere else to send him if it isn't working out."

06 May 2018 22:28:19
What a disappointing let down, the hype signing of us been selected out of 24 clubs. we need to continue with dignity and face value here? Not getting into the Sevco dishonesty mode 🧟‍♀️🧟‍♂️.

{Ed007's Note - What?}

07 May 2018 10:19:59
And can i just add 'the feck'.
