Apparently a fee of over £1 million has been agreed for Hayes with Christie going on loan for a season. I think that's a bad bit of business and also don't understand why, if those who sanction such moves are available, they haven't secured Armstrong on a new deal yet and also signed up Roberts. Surely we are not waiting for the VVD money to come through before pursuing the latter.


1.) 14 Jun 2017 16:57:10
Armstrong said his deal was put on hold till after the Scotland game
Who says we aren't negotiating for paddy right now?
What you want celtic to talk us through every step of every deal as it happens?
Has the transfer window even been open a week?
Do our top targets want to wait to see if we get champions league football?
We don't need major surgery so we should be taking our time and gEttington the right people
The people the gaffer wants.

2.) 14 Jun 2017 21:34:49
Even if Hayes turns out to be a revelation, which I doubt, Christie is already a far better, younger and more versatile player. Shaking my head in between scratching it over this one, will never make sense to me.

3.) 14 Jun 2017 21:28:53
Andy1969, spending over a million on squad players is a sign how far in front Celtic are give Brendan a chance the window has only opened and you are critical.

4.) 14 Jun 2017 21:48:22
Davie Rogers doesn't see Christie as a wide player and he ain't getting a game in the middle.
So isn't it better to send him to play evert week at the second best team in the country?

5.) 14 Jun 2017 22:08:42
Mandy Rodgers just doesn't fancy Christie and if he's not going to get a game in first team another year out on loan won't hurt him.

6.) 14 Jun 2017 22:18:58
When you stop being a patronising twat Kev, maybe you'll see that all I'm saying is I find it strange that they have time to sort this out yet not Armstrong, as yet, or Roberts, which in my opinion, are far more pressing.
I can't bear your likes - ones who are just happy with whatever happens and talk in such condescending ways to people who have a different opinion!

7.) 14 Jun 2017 22:37:59
Give the bhoy a chance, did he not have the most assists in Scotland last season?

8.) 14 Jun 2017 22:45:56
Andy, whatever Brendan wants the Board will do their best to secure it. Rodgers has earned the right to go for Hayes as he thinks he can do a job for him. The fact that you don't understand it means didly scot, in Brendan we should all trust. The offer is on the table for Armstrong and it's up to him to accept it or not, we will not be held to ransom by him after 1 good season plus the fact he was absolute garbage against England. The offer is there for Paddy too so he can take it or leave it. Hail Hail.

9.) 14 Jun 2017 22:50:32
Andy you are a typical panty wetter.
The most successful season in over 10 years has just finished
We are only 4 or 5 days into the transfer window and already your moaning.
Like I said ARMSTRONG stopped the contract negotiations till after Saturdays game. It's only Wednesday and your greeting he hasn't signed
Roberts has repeatedly said he was going to see what was happening at city before he made any decision.

10.) 14 Jun 2017 23:01:59
Kev - expressing an opinion makes someone a "pantywetter"? You're a bloody moron, and that being polite!
I'd like Armstrong to be tied up as soon as possible before some EPL team jump in. I'm inspired by the Hayes pursuit and actually think Christie is a better player anyway.

11.) 15 Jun 2017 06:21:19
I can see your point Kev but I do remember this year there since January being a few times where I thought we could have done with Christie but I suppose like you say, he would spend a lot of his time on the bench. Just hope we don't end up losing him and that it has been made clear that he is definitely in the long term plan. Wasn't all that fussed when he came in but the little I've seen of him in the hoops has been very impressive.

12.) 15 Jun 2017 09:57:33
If Christie was to stay at Celtic next season he would get as much game time as Henderson has just got this season. His development has stagnated as he has players in great form playing in his position. Same can be said about Christie.

Hayes is a vast improvement on GMS who had to play a handful of games last season. It could be late August before any Roberts deal is done. An injury to Sinclair or Forrest leaves us short of pace in the wide areas. The Hayes deal makes perfect sense and after an unbeaten treble people should do well to trust the manager a bit more!

13.) 15 Jun 2017 11:13:32
Agree completely Darylbhoy could not have put it better! Can't understand why people are losing it with Christie going on loan as I would have wanted that regardless of Hayes deal. Same applies with Ajer.

14.) 15 Jun 2017 12:48:48
a lot of talk about hayes not been good enough why not he fits br. s way of playing fast, strong, got an eye for goal, tracks back, is better than gms or jf, people going overboard about armstrong yes he had a very good season but it wasnt against the best if the game against better ops like last sat is anything to go by we should take our time no need to panic.



29 May 2017 09:12:04
Sorry to hound you like some obsessed stalker on this, Ed, but I just read that apparently Celtic and City have agreed a deal for Roberts and it's now up to him to decide if he wants to come back.
Do you know if there is any truth in this?
Thanks matey.


{Ed007's Note - I've said all along that the only stumbling block could be City's demands and it looks like they are happy for Roberts to move here permanently as long as there is a buy back clause in the deal.}

1.) 29 May 2017 14:57:13
Do you have any ballpark ideas of a price for the clause? Is it usually around the selling price?

{Ed007's Note - I don't buddy, sorry.}



26 May 2017 08:07:32
Ed - do you expect an announcement regarding Armstrong signing a new deal today, by way of a boost for tomorrow? I'm desperate for him to stay - I think he has been fabulous this season.
And also, in your opinion, does Man City releasing Navas seriously hamper our chances of signing Roberts permanently?


{Ed007's Note - I don't know about Armstrong's contract but somebody did post they heard it would be announced this week.
Navas leaving City will have no bearing on Roberts' future at City - they're signing Bernardo Silva and still have Raheem Sterling - because he doesn't have one. Roberts agent Galip Kilic intends to meet with Manchester City with the intentions of asking City to make the player available for transfer.}

1.) 26 May 2017 12:18:47
Are there rumours down south of any English teams wanting him Ed? I haven't heard of anybody being interested apart from us but obviously we'd struggle to match any EPL bids.

{Ed007's Note - I've not heard of any English teams showing interest, Kev. I was asking Ed001 and Ed002 the other day if they had heard anything about his situation and they don't know much either except that his time's up at City.}

2.) 26 May 2017 12:47:10
Thanks for the info.
That sounds quite positive regarding our chances of getting him then. fingers crossed!

{Ed007's Note - No probs, Andy. I'm quietly confident that Roberts will be a Celtic player next year. Even the way he's speaking about it himself and not ruling it out is a good sign I reckon.}

3.) 26 May 2017 22:07:42
Keep saying it but the signing of Roberts for me is a must, paddy as our new number 7 will be quality for us and will only improve as well as seeing his value soar. Absolute no brainer of a signing, 6-8 million is a steal for that type of quality.
Here we go 10 in a row.



14 May 2017 10:03:21
Ed - do you know if there is any truth in the Demebele being sold rumours? They seem to be coming from quite a few sources. Thanks.


{Ed007's Note - It's a Sunday, the day the papers have all their rumours and gossip round ups so they need to think up some headline grabbers and trawl the 'net for rumours, didn't this latest story about Dembele start on that HITC which is just kids paid to make up stories?.
The Club have said Dembele is not for sale and the player himself has said he wants to stay and as far as I know nothing has changed.}

1.) 14 May 2017 13:42:12
Thanks mate - that's reassuring. It was even worse to read that he was rated at £20 million - not sure what he could have done wrong for his value to have halved!
Thanks again.

{Ed007's Note - (yes)

2.) 14 May 2017 21:03:25
dembele has a gentlemans agreement with rodgers to play for another season here then rodgers will let him move on.



27 Apr 2017 15:33:44
Any news on Scott Brown's appeal appeal anyone? I can't find anything anywhere and thought it was due today.


{Ed007's Note - The SFA have just announced that the claim of wrongful dismissal has been upheld and that Brown's red card has been reduced to a yellow.
Brown is now available for selection for Saturday's trip to face TRIFC at Ibrox.}

1.) 27 Apr 2017 16:46:39
Lets all do the broony.

2.) 27 Apr 2017 17:23:55
Fantastic! Thank you very much for that.
The currants will be raging.!

{Ed007's Note - They're rage is only hiding their fear of what might happen on Saturday. Broony might even break sweat during the next match!}

3.) 27 Apr 2017 18:52:44
Is it true that he will miss the next 2 games after that as he will be over the yellow card threshold?

{Ed007's Note - As far as I know, Tony you're spot on with that.}

4.) 27 Apr 2017 19:46:06
Thanks Ed.

{Ed007's Note - You're welcome mate.}

5.) 27 Apr 2017 20:52:44
Scott Brown break sweat on Saturday? Do you really think they can improve that much in one week? Ha ha. Or will it him worrying about the daily rangers report about Garner and Wallace's wedding plans being scuppered by early pre-season training. in which they didn't clarify it wasn't to each other.

{Ed007's Note - I'll bet £20 that Garner's wedding ends in a punch up.}

6.) 27 Apr 2017 21:31:16
Attempted. I'm not sure he'll manage to connect!

{Ed007's Note - I'd never ever heard of him. Ed003 is the go to guy for obscure diddies in the English lower leagues and the first thing he told me was that Garner could start a fight in an empty phonebox.}

7.) 27 Apr 2017 21:58:19
The way the little twat has been since arriving in Scotland would certainly back that up! Revolting rat bag. Nearly as bad as Miller.

08 Jun 2017 21:43:48
I know he's on duty with Scotland this week, but is that the only reason that Armstrong hasn't signed a new deal yet? Along with Roberts, I think it's our most important bit of business for the summer. Any idea ed?




06 Jun 2017 15:13:01
RIP Chieck Tiote and Giuliano Sarti.


1.) 06 Jun 2017 16:47:19
I was very surprised about Tiote. Always thought he was a cracking player. RIP both.

2.) 06 Jun 2017 19:34:05
Too true. Sarti was an amazing keeper. One of the best.

3.) 07 Jun 2017 19:00:13
I just read he suffered major liver damage in 2010 that nearly killed him . Maybe that problem returned . Very sad for his family friends and club.



30 May 2017 21:49:04
Maybe something we might agree on for a change.
How the hell has Stockley got away with that challenge? After not checking to see how KT was, he then has the brass balls to use Twitter to claim his innocence but still doesn't offer a word of apology or best wishes for a speedy recovery: if a normal person bumps into someone in the pub by accident, they apologise and check on how they are, but this scumbag can't even do that after sticking his teeth into the roof of his mouth!
And some reporter knob has described it as a "split lip". Jesus wept.


1.) 31 May 2017 09:20:39
mcann comparing it to brown/ miller was laughable, can't wait till bt get sole rights, coverage is night and day between the two,



29 May 2017 12:22:28
What is the general consensus concerning the "challenge" by Stockley? First off, I wasn't too sure if it was deliberate, but the fact that he made no attempt whatsoever to check on Tierney afterwards and that he has apparently been sent off three times this season for the same thing makes me think this must have been deliberate.
Ed - is there any chance of him getting a ban retrospectively for this?


{Ed007's Note - It was no accident, Andy. You're spot on too, if it was an accident any decent professional would have been over apologising and checking KT was alright. Watch it again and looking at the force he has turned round with shows that he meant to hurt KT.
As for a retrospective punishment I'd like to think the SFA will do the right thing and punish him, he's got previous for this too, but I'm not holding my breath. Hopefully KT gave Bobo Stockley's address lol.}

1.) 29 May 2017 12:46:42
Ha ha - I like that. Crikey, Bobo would eat him!
They have to punish this sort of thing - Tierney's game was ended, his jaw apparently broken and some teeth ended up in the roof of his mouth. And not the slightest sign of concern or remorse - he even claimed on social media that it was an accident but couldn't even bring himself to wish KT better. Animal. Earlier this season he could easily have had his leg broken by the thug from Motherwell and nothing was done then either. That's absolutely disgraceful.
Has KT been withdrawn from the England match?

{Ed007's Note - There's been nothing official but I'm hoping he does withdraw. He's probably not sobered up enough to feel how sore it really is lol

2.) 29 May 2017 12:53:40
I hope he plays - getting one over England would just be an orgasmic climax to the season (and yes, I meant it to sound like a double "whammy"! )

{Ed007's Note - I couldn't care less about the Scotland v England match. Unless we do a live chat for it I probably won't even watch it.}

3.) 29 May 2017 13:09:14
I support any team against England and gone to quite a few extreme measures to prove it.
When it's Scotland v England, it means even more and add in that there's no-one from "them" in the Scotland squad and such a huge presence of our bhoys, it takes to a whole new level for me.

{Ed007's Note -

4.) 29 May 2017 13:55:58
Gents also immediately before that incident Griffiths gets a push in the back by Reynolds that nearly puts him off the pitch and Aberdeen are awarded a throw in! I turned to the guy next to me and said here we f'n go again. These refs and officials are shameless, an utter embarrassment to their profession.

5.) 29 May 2017 13:57:16
It was a shocking challenge right in front if the linesman god knows how he missed it and what about the foul on griff in the lead up to the kt incident brother bob at his best.

6.) 29 May 2017 14:03:14
Madden would have been on the phone to the bank changing his pin number after watching Trainspotting.

{Ed007's Note - That's a belter too and they don't even realise that Irvine Welsh is ripping them a new one in it:

7.) 29 May 2017 14:34:38
I'm not joking Ed there was posts by zombies on a scottish football page about how funny the scene was that takes the p out of the catholics. They really ain't the brightest are they.

{Ed007's Note - I know mate, it just show that they're legendary lack of self awareness is just as strong as it ever was. They sing that no one likes them and they don't care but we all know that's a lie. It hurts them so deep inside that Celtic are flying and have friends from all walks of life and from all over the world who are more than happy to celebrate with us and all they can do is crank up their vileness to try and counteract it. They should maybe ask why no one likes them and take on board the answers. I fully expect the Trainspotting song to be ringing round football stadiums to go along with their horrendous and illegal Tiffany rip off.}

8.) 29 May 2017 15:00:19
Would not be surprised they are filth. Meant to post this yesterday but the Hearts game got me thinking about the cost of the flags the GB use throughout the season, Would it not be fantastic if they put together a live CD and sold it so that everyone could help with costs.

{Ed007's Note - I'd buy that.}

9.) 29 May 2017 15:55:54
It would have to start with Junior Capo, I had it as my ringtone and had to bluetooth it to all the Feyenoord lads at work they love it. Hope we get them in CL.



17 May 2017 13:56:41
Ed - do you think there is any chance of Elyanoussi joining? I saw something though can't remember where!, that he might be available. I don't know a lot about him except that there eas great excitement when he was linked previously.
Personally, I hope we keep Roberts and add a CAM and possibly extra CB.
I have to say, though, that if we keep the first team squad intact, it's the first time I can think of where I would happy enough to start the season with what we have already. I think the pool of players look really strong and apart from the excitement new signings bring and the idea of strengthening from a position of strength, I think we look in pretty good shape.


{Ed007's Note - I think the Elyanoussi boat has long sailed past us and I'd expect any bid by us would be blown out the water by an EPL club.}

1.) 17 May 2017 14:31:42
Just read that victor betting has placed us second favs to land Delph from Man C. definitely the start of the silly season.

{Ed007's Note - I seen something earlier about that, no chance of that happening.}

2.) 17 May 2017 17:09:45
I don't rate him not any better than what's there would be disappointed but as u said ED never going to happen. Would like to see Ebouie get a run in the next two games c what he has to offer.

3.) 17 May 2017 19:30:09
Ed have you heard anything about Darlington Nagbe, was told today we might try again.

{Ed007's Note - No mate I haven't.}

4.) 17 May 2017 21:16:12
Thanks Ed.
I wouldn't touch Delph with yours.! As said above, not better than we already have, in fact if go as far as to say worse than our back up players.

If this is the case, I think it would be fantastic! Potentially, it's heavily offset if van Dyjk moves. So that would be a net outlay of a little over a million for our top target.
Keeping my fingers crossed now!


{Ed007's Note - That's a good point, Andy, I never thought about it like that.}

About £40 million - if he had done absolutely nothing in his career beforehand! But, being someone who plays in Scotland, he is simply referred to as "their fella" by the mightily thick english captain and will probably not be mentioned again down south. Instead of course, all the plaudits go to kane as though poking one in from inside the six yard box is more of an achievement.
Bitter? Damn right.

That would be fantastic. I hope we don't quibble over the price too much, as we have done before and lost out on someone, especially with the potential windfall from VVD.


{Ed007's Note - If I was to take a guess I don't think it's the fee and more likely to be add ons or sell on clauses or even a buy back option.
