Lucas and Ricky Lambert? Although wages for Lucas could be a stumbling block. From THB forum. Just passing info along.

Keoman says JMcC going nowhere and he may need a groin op?
27 Aug 2016 21:23:15
JMcC groin injury ? I hope he isn't the marque signing, he is a good player but what pees me rite off is we couldve had him for £500,000 and PL said no.
Over to you Skinnybhoy.

BRFA from what I was told weeks ago marquee signing was arranged. McCarthy has come about only in recent week due to fall out with Koeman so I seriously doubt he is the marquee. I am expecting another.
2.) 27 Aug 2016 22:16:19
Skinnybhoy, I lap your posts right up! Genuinely excited for this last week of the window.
Let's be honest we bash DD and PL (and quite rightly so) but think they deserve a bit of credit for not only bringing in BR but also backing him.
3.) 27 Aug 2016 22:21:59
Skinnybhoy, hav u been told who it is but can't share it? Or just that its a marquee.
4.) 27 Aug 2016 22:35:01
Was Nasri not supposed to be the "marquee" type signing? The CL draw may have put paid to that.
5.) 27 Aug 2016 22:56:09
Sorry Wylie just been told that it was marquee no names were given sorry mate I'm as excited as everyone else. All I wa told was that very big player was coming if we qualified for champions league. Not for the money but to win trophies.
6.) 27 Aug 2016 23:17:23
Give me strength.
7.) 27 Aug 2016 23:40:02
NiallH - wasn't aware I said anything ridiculous?
Think it's fair to say that the board have pushed the boat out with BR and they are backing him with pennies.
3 maybe 4 years too late but you can't say that it isn't good to be a Tim right now.
8.) 28 Aug 2016 00:14:50
Craigie u lap SB posts right up! Haha! Was that a joke?
And the board have pushed the boat out! Explain why?
We've spent about 4.5 million in total! With the money from johannsen and scepovic we're lucky if it works out at 1.5 million we've actually spent! Yes we're paying bigger wages, but I wouldn't call it pushing the boat out! Nowhere near it! We'll see how we are after the transfer window shuts before I decide if we've really backed Brendan!
9.) 28 Aug 2016 01:03:41
wiss81 i tend to agree with you there. over to you PL.
10.) 28 Aug 2016 07:01:41
Who cares about prices of players. How may players did deila bring in and what prices where paid. I could care if it was a team of freebies as long as the gel together and perform. Also get results. How much was Leicesters team last year and look how will they performed . rant over.
11.) 28 Aug 2016 07:54:07
It was you comment about SB. I will say it again for anyone interested but the guy hasn't mentioned 1 name that hasn't already been mentioned. I have no idea how he has achieved hero status on here with some.
12.) 28 Aug 2016 10:29:58
your last post makes absolutely no sense whatsoever
you said …the marquee player is contingent on cfc qualifying for the champions league BECAUSE this player wants to win trophies…. he could win plenty of trophies (I assume its a "he" noting that there are some decent women footballers out there! ) …back to my point…he could win many/ many/ many trophies whether or not we qualify for the champions league (the competition with more non-champions in it than champions) ….
unless CFC were going to scrap the wage structure with the CL readies …. which I doubt very much.
13.) 28 Aug 2016 10:35:46
In fairness only time on this site has anyone came close to predicting anything was ed with Rodgers
Hope this board don't let us down with a standard squad player signing.
14.) 28 Aug 2016 13:38:14
Think bhoys some of us need to lower our expectations regarding "marquee" player coming in.
First it was schweinstiger, then ballotelli now nasri!
All these players are out our reach and regardless of CL qualification the wage structure won't be broken and with some of the names mentioned it would have to be significantly.
The only thing CL will do is free up some coin for transfer fees but again don't expect all of the 25m - 30m to go in because it wont.
Realistically i would say 15% of that will be invested into the squad.
15.) 28 Aug 2016 13:54:45
no not the leicester comparisons again I hate them lol . they done well and it was a big up you to the so called bigger teams but its once in a lifetime stuff lol.
16.) 28 Aug 2016 14:48:38
NiallH and Wiss81air point.
I just get easily excited at the talk of a marquee signing!
17.) 28 Aug 2016 15:48:08
Skinnybhoy your getting it tight man!
18.) 28 Aug 2016 19:18:19
Will I am. They still did it though with no budget . well compared to epl teams anyway.
14 Aug 2016 23:05:32
Shane Duffy heading to Glasgow tomorrow?
1.) 14 Aug 2016 23:20:04
I heard this also BRFA and Thomas Delaney to follow. If we qualify for champions league there will be a marquee signing.
2.) 14 Aug 2016 23:23:30
I'm sorry guys but, have you seen Blackburns results of late 😖😖.
3.) 15 Aug 2016 00:13:20
What has that to do with anything .
It's a team game we buy players to play in our team.
4.) 15 Aug 2016 00:16:26
skinnybhoy, just rumours but that's what we are oh here for. I don't know much about the Delaney bhoy never saw him play. A marque signing i think we have it with Sinclair but if we qualified and another player to strengthen the team ( straight in and not a prospect) i'd welcome it.
theref1974.yeah blackburn bad atm, but in a differnt team he COULD be a better player, he is young and can learn from Toure.
5.) 15 Aug 2016 00:20:27
BRFA trust me if we qualify marquee signing will be much bigger than Sinclair.
6.) 15 Aug 2016 00:22:54
Personally I wouldn't want Duffy we already have better! If we do sign him it can only mean exit door for a few. Ambrose Boyata simunovic.
7.) 15 Aug 2016 00:35:07
Owen coyle factor.
8.) 15 Aug 2016 04:10:49
SB, any names to go with the marquee signing talk? I can't see Celtic signing anyone higher profile than Sinclair because I imagine Sinclair is among our highest earners if not the highest earner! I just can't see us paying big money and big wages.
Not keen on Duffy but will give him a chance if it's true. I don't know anything about Delaney other than what I've read on here but he seems to be in favour with everyone who's mentioned him so I'd be excited if he came.
Anyone got any score predictions for Wednesday? I'm thinking/ hoping 2-0. I believe we need to destroy this mob at Celtic park or we will lose out on champs league. I don't know why but I also have a feeling that this mob may bottle it under the pressure. Roll on Wednesday! HH.
9.) 15 Aug 2016 07:14:07
Marquee signing ideas
It won't be a young player
It will be late 20s to early 30s
Someone who has made lots of money but hasn't got many medals ( home or abroad ) and has the hunger to be a winner
So someone like sugurdasson or Defoe etc
They will be Danish or Swedish or Dutch IMVHO
It could be McCarthy of course or ( gulp ) mcgeady but if its marquee it needs to be a signing that provides a focus for European games no matter the competition we ultimately play in
What about that lad finbogoson? Remember that old chestnut.
10.) 15 Aug 2016 09:36:18
I watched the Ireland games during the Euros and Duffy looked a class act. David Moyes said that, with the exception of Rooney and Barkley, he was the best player to come through Evertons academy - certainly the best defensive player. He suffered a few big injuries that stifled his development so is a few years behind where he should be. If he can repeat the form he shows for Ireland and BR can unlock some of his potential he will be a fantastic signing.
There are a lot of Irish players being linked with Celtic of late, the one i would go for is Jeff Hendrick. He is sublime for both Ireland and Derby. An all action midfielder with a real eye for goal and stunning shot and is still only 24. Reminds me a lot of Commons when he first signed. Don't know of Derby would let him go though as his loss would be a major blow to their promotion bid.
11.) 15 Aug 2016 09:52:03
Calm down Old Bhoy, I'm just saying I don't think the boy Duffy is better than what we have. CB is a strong position for us when they are all fit, although I would try and move on Boyata and Ambrose.
From the Inter match I liked the effort from Ryan Christie, Kris Ajer, Henderson and Ciftci.
Disappointed in Boyata and Armstrong.
I think BR will look to bring in a creative central midfielder and another striker. (Bar said 2, I don't think GK is one)
12.) 15 Aug 2016 10:49:46
Well skinnybhoy can you give a clue as to who this marquee signing could be?
13.) 15 Aug 2016 12:48:21
Sorry Marco no don't have any names she didn't say and won't no matter how many times I ask! Just that he is a very big player deal to go through if we qualify. I'm guessing it will be a midfielder.
14.) 15 Aug 2016 12:32:11
Derby want 10 million for hendrick so that's the end of that one.
15.) 15 Aug 2016 23:43:32
Yaya? May won't to play with his bro . and has been left outa champions league
We are allowed to dream on a rumours site aren't we?
04 Aug 2016 19:26:52
GMS to Ross County season loan.
1.) 04 Aug 2016 20:39:36
All the best to him hope he finds his smile playing 1st team football.
2.) 04 Aug 2016 21:34:32
That is a horrible backward step for him. Horrible. I am amazed he's agreed to it. Wonder if he wants to be up there ( where he's from ) . Something odd about GMS. I like him and his personality and openness but I'm very surprised which makes me think he wants to get away from the spotlight and effectively disappear
So long as the bhoy is happy.
3.) 04 Aug 2016 22:26:02
Never thought he had it plenty of ability but no heart.
4.) 05 Aug 2016 08:54:21
I think I agree Mally, he just never looked up to the pressure of performing every week.
5.) 05 Aug 2016 17:11:06
Rate him far better player than Forrest plenty of skill just needs to be engouraged rogers could be the man to do it.
saying that wouldn't be in first 11 but good back up.
6.) 05 Aug 2016 20:37:22
BR has said this story is rubbish.
7.) 05 Aug 2016 23:03:33
Paradisewon who ever he goes to after us is a step backwards but he needs to be playing football not rotting away in the development squad.
8.) 06 Aug 2016 16:02:26
Can't disagree with what you've said Gordo.
31 Aug 2016 19:43:06
Jozo on the way back to Celtic? anyone else think its disgraceful that we have not strengthened the middle of the park, especially after SJ has gone. There is a few hours left, but i think we are done and pl will be rubbing his fat paws at the money he has saved. don't get me wrong we have got a few players in but 2 of them are not even starting?
BR said he wanted another few in PL has said different unless.
31 Aug 2016 14:40:33
Charlie Adam and his sisters pants is the new rumour.
30 Aug 2016 22:38:26
Nearly received more than we have spent, hopefully another 1 or 2 in tomorrow, tbh I will be disappointed if we don't get a CM in. The money that has been generated so far should allow us the luxury of buying a creative midfielder. If we don't sign a CM it will show you want PL thinks of the fans.
1.) 31 Aug 2016 09:31:55
Mon mate no matter what this has been the best window in years. Just because lawell has done what he's best at n balanced the books doesn't mean we're being taken for granted. Aye a midfielder would be good but we're already miles ahead in Scotland n we could spend the full 30 million n still finish fourth in the champs league.
28 Aug 2016 19:03:36
Marque Player get it out of our heads we aren't signing one.
We might spend 2/ 3 million on a player or 2. PL has the money set aside for his bonus, as someone said or net spend is about 1.5 million and not forgetting the players we have shifted off the wage bill.
1.) 28 Aug 2016 19:32:48
Exactly BRFA! no idea why anyone's disagreeing bud! This marquee signing is made up bollocks! I said it a few weeks ago that everyone looking for a big name player will be really disappointed! This from people like skinnybhoy about a big name player coming in if CL is secured is a utter nonsense! It ain't going to happen! But we'll still all be on here on Wednesday nite counting down the transfer window wondering who's coming in! Well it ain't going to be this big name marquee signing! No chance!
2.) 28 Aug 2016 19:56:01
BRFA, I agree, my comments on Nasri came from seeing on various sites that he was in the frame for the last week, And was a loan signing as he would not go anywhere near France and had no lovers in the EPL because of his attitude towards English systems. If we spend 5/ 6 mil on 2/ 3 players who the mgr thinks will bring us on then great, it is only on here that we have comments about marquee signings, wages are no problem these days so let's see.
3.) 28 Aug 2016 20:34:23
Wiss i think peoples logic is if they mention enough players one is bound to be true lol.
Im still laughing at schweinstiger lol.
4.) 28 Aug 2016 21:08:06
Who started this marquee type signing . Was it people on Twitter or did it come from B R or Celtic . I think it was more in our minds than Celtic board's mind.
24 Aug 2016 18:38:40
Players that should be punted to free up wages for quality rather than quantity.
I think they won't progress and wasting wages.
1.) 24 Aug 2016 19:51:26
I'd keep Armstrong and get shot of Bitton.
2.) 24 Aug 2016 19:54:13
what about Bailly, Gordon and Isagurrie.
3.) 24 Aug 2016 20:00:45
We need izaguire. What if Tierney gets injured or loses form?
4.) 24 Aug 2016 20:13:55
It's finding a club to take them mate would be ideal if they all left but as Ed said a lot will sit there and take there bonus for getting into champs league and take wages without playing.
31 Aug 2016 23:13:06
1 years loan. still have efe though.
29 Aug 2016 22:05:55
Seen it mentioned several times, but who the f'ck knows. look at the right back. done without many people knowing several forms had an incline but the red tops never had a clue, I prefare that they know nothing.
Hopefully and wishful thinking a striker to help Griff and the marquee signing a midfield magician, lubo/ McStay esk its all we ask for.
28 Aug 2016 23:50:07
28 Aug 2016 01:03:41
wiss81 i tend to agree with you there. over to you PL.
25 Aug 2016 23:48:36
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?
28 Aug 2016 18:59:00
Who said we were in for Nasri. people need to get real .
22 Aug 2016 22:59:33
I thought of that too but with PR behind LG, JF on the right and S on the left be mad fast.
SS. SB. TR. JF
KT. KT. ERIK. ML
BUT if we sign this attacking/ playmaker mid go 3 at the back and all out carnage in the SPL.
22 Aug 2016 22:42:59
£63,500 can see them reaching £100,000 or more. Just wonder if any players will donate once the match is over tomorrow night?
16 Aug 2016 23:39:37
FU@K UEFA corrupt bastards.
08 Aug 2016 22:35:50
Canny see it, must be a wildcard signing which is sh1te, be better if they could train with team for a week before next CL game. but I don't pick the players or buy them.
