Someone is going to have to explain to me why we didn't sell Boyata for £9m and then reinvest in someone who actually wants to play for us. We will lose him for nowt next year and he is not as good as he thinks he is. Stupid decision as I'm certain if our scouts did their job we could get a decent CB for £5m or so. One of several bad decisions this window. They aren't great but will win most of their games and the game on Sunday is a must win to put down a marker.


{Ed002's Note - A good CB has arrived on loan.}

1.) 01 Sep 2018 09:06:08
Emanuel emenike is a free agent might be worth a punt big burly striker could do Us a turn as cover fir Griffiths and eddy.

2.) 01 Sep 2018 09:44:44
Chink67 I think that the plan could have been to get through the qualifiers then punt him.
We needed him for they games and the manager knew it.
The gaffer expected him to be a professional and if he had I've no doubt we'd have qualified.

3.) 01 Sep 2018 11:06:23
Heaney, Eminike is a good player but do you know if he has calmed down with age? Seem to remember he was a bit of a bam on and off the field.

4.) 01 Sep 2018 11:57:29
Lacina Traore is also unattached and guiseppe Rossi but he was always injured.

5.) 01 Sep 2018 12:04:23
He’s 31 now think he would be sound enough as cover but don’t think Rodgers would mind a challenge as long as he can still put the ball in the net.

6.) 01 Sep 2018 09:19:19
How do we know he is a good CB ed? let's face it, he got a move to leicester for a huge fee, but he is very young with very little experience. Ajer and hendry are bomb scares together and now we are relying on an unknown and boyata, a player who does not want to be here. Rodgers must be gutted. Is it just me or does anyone else see that we are going backwards? The morale and harmony in the squad can't be great after the exploits of boyata and dembele. Forgive the negativity but a 22yr unknown Cb on loan and a 31yr freebie that no one else wanted just won't do it for me. ☘HH.

{Ed002's Note - Filip Benković picked Leicester over Borussia Dortmund, Inter Milan and Chelsea with Spurs also showing an interest. He may well be unknown to you but he is well respected in the game. I hope he fails miserably at Celtic so you are not disappointed.}

7.) 01 Sep 2018 13:27:06
The CB has been chased by some big clubs including ours for years and the free that no one wanted was signing foe Swansea till we approach him.

8.) 01 Sep 2018 13:43:30
Just because he was linked to various clubs does not reflect his ability, he may well have potential but we don't need potential, we need ability particularly at the back! The fact he picked leicester over the clubs you mentioned ed tells me that he lacks ambition and favours money, dortmund would have been a great place for him to go! Or maybe these clubs you mentioned are just media hype. Anyway ed I ask again how do we know he is any good and not just another experiment? Please try and reply without being sarcastic. We all know we can't afford to have another experiment at the back. ☘HH.

{Ed002's Note - Just forget it then. Try the approach of screaming vile abuse at him and start up a hate group on Facebook and force him out of the club. I truly hope he fails completely and loses Celtic multiple games to keep you happy.}

9.) 01 Sep 2018 13:51:30
I think the boy looks brilliant. I would play him tomorrow with Boyata. The only downer is he will leave before our CK qualifiers next season.

10.) 01 Sep 2018 13:58:30
For years kev, really? And we stole a 31 yr freebie from swansea, lol I should think so! Look I am just a bit concerned about where we are going and the signings we are making, like many fans I am not convinced. We are weaker than we were, no doubt about it. We lost armstrong, dembele and roberts who were first picks. Our defence is poor and we go out and get a freebie from killie, an unknown cb on loan, 2 young boys who are far from first team material and a LB who we punted a year ago. Forgive me for not being ecstatic. ☘HH.

11.) 01 Sep 2018 14:27:55
Benkovic is a coup the board done well in that respect to get him here. Him Boyata and Ajer at the back will tear it up this season.

12.) 01 Sep 2018 14:27:56
Benkovic will be or is the best CB at our club make no mistake this boy is a great player watch and see.

13.) 01 Sep 2018 14:29:41
Would you rather we go out and sign 14 players who are not in our league.

14.) 01 Sep 2018 15:17:56
No marco, but their two centre halfs would walk into our team. ☘HH.

15.) 01 Sep 2018 15:56:18
he has to be a troll 😂 Benkovic is a fantastic signing and hopefully will bring the best out of Jozo as well. 4 solid centre halves in the squad, until big Starvin Marvin comes in and plays a sweeper as part of a one man defence. Solid.

16.) 01 Sep 2018 16:33:50
Armstrong and Roberts first picks?
Guess you didn't watch us last season
Both where on bench when fit.
Both CBs would walk in to our team?
I smell 💩💩💩💩💩.

17.) 01 Sep 2018 17:10:39
Is that supposed to be light hearted kev? ☘HH.

18.) 01 Sep 2018 18:19:54
Goldson and there other CH are rotten they are terrible under pressure and have no pace we will take 3 or 4 off them and I’m willing to wager you on that and I never bet.



24 Feb 2018 22:46:36
Said it before and will say it again, not trying to get McGinn was a mistake. He is better now than Kouassi, Armstrong and more reliable than Rogic and eventually could play the Broony role.


1.) 25 Feb 2018 11:40:54
Top players from other spl clubs that have joined simply haven't stood the test of time. Brown, LG and SA (1 season) when on form have been exceptions. Our top players almost always are brought in from abroad. If the talent isn't there domestically, which it isn't, we have to continue to look further afield. I like McGinn but will he take this team up a level? I don't think so.
From our first team squad there could be GK departures. 3 defenders, 4 mf and 2 strikers. From the loaned out list Christie looks like the only one likely to get any game time.
To replace the likely departures 6 players at a bare minimum have to be brought in. For me they ALL need to be first team ready. 25M might do that. I'd say we won't go north of 12.

2.) 26 Feb 2018 13:40:19
Scott McDonald, Caldwell, Robson, Hartley, McNamara, Mark Wilson, Stokes, Mulgrew, Agathe etc

all our own youth players are domestic as well.

Paul Lambert was developed at SPL clubs

sure there has been as many failures but you can count as many failures we have signed from foreign leagues also.

How can Sutton say Defoe is a game changer when he, and Stevie G for that matter, have not seem him play for about a year? He has averaged 10 goals a season throughout his career and I can't see him improving with age, even accounting for the drop in standard of opposition. In the words if Jim Royal, "game changer my Ar$3".


1.) 03 Jan 2019 22:16:49
A could score in our league.

2.) 04 Jan 2019 01:07:53
I predict Defoe will score less than 8 goals this season.

3.) 04 Jan 2019 12:48:40
It's good too see that our signings are the talk of the town. Were no building for the future were taking the league this year or next. It's happening and Rodgers will run with broony before it happens.



30 Dec 2018 20:17:40
At Ibrox only 2 BR permanent signings started, SS and ON who like most others didn't turn up. No doubting his ability to coach and mentor but judgement in the transfer market has been shocking, - other than a few. For me BR and the board need a good window because the mob smell blood and will reinforce + will get help from the refs. Fact.


1.) 30 Dec 2018 20:45:19
And when he makes changes they don't seem to work Easter road and yesterday examples.

2.) 30 Dec 2018 20:52:21
Turn it up, there’s been umpteen games he’s changed formations and personnel and it’s worked. We got beat as sore as it is it will be the rocket we need after having it so good these last few years. CalMac has played 50 odd games already this season we need a break and a few additions and we will kick on.

3.) 30 Dec 2018 23:35:00
I said the exact same after the summer window, when most on here were slating the board, when infact most of Rodgers signings have been woeful and got slated myself. People seem to think that because most of the signings have been shocking the board haven't backed the manager.

Not blowing my own trumpet but I was saying these things months ago what people are saying now. " his signings", "this trying to build from the back when we don't have the quality of player to do it".

Again people are claiming bias from the ref why? Was that not the same ref that gave us a penalty in the 5-1 game at Ibrox? I thought the ref had a good game myself and can see why refs don't take any action when players kick out as the review panel will just undermine their decisions and recind any cards giving.

I did say after Morelos had his red card recinded at Pittodrie that they were setting a dangerous precident so don't blame the ref!
What angers me the most was the arrogance to play Calmac at LB and Johnston up top thinking the 3 points were in the bag.

4.) 30 Dec 2018 22:55:51
Mally Was it not his changes that win us the game at pitodrie?

5.) 30 Dec 2018 23:15:50
Agreed Campsie Bhoy those who have BR in their sights are either Huns, people who know nothing about football or who have short memories with no appreciation of what he’s achieved or persons.

6.) 31 Dec 2018 00:18:21
@chinks67 ‘the mob will smell blood and reinforce’. What with, they’re skint? It’s going to be a challenge for them just to keep the lights on till the end of the season.

7.) 31 Dec 2018 01:47:33
Am not having a go at him he's a great manager but thought he got it wrong if eddy was fit enough for the bench id have started him and hayes at lb and Ralston also over lustig who is finished.

8.) 31 Dec 2018 08:34:12
Spot on Mally👍.

9.) 31 Dec 2018 09:33:14

I got branded a person on here for having a go at our transfer policy and it's not going to change.

Congerton/ Rodgers have been a disaster millions wasted. Plc won't commit any real money as it affects their bonus. Vicious circle guaranteed we will sell our best playes if the bank balance is under threat. Ooh look a squirrel/ hotel.

We will need to get really lucky. Maybe this 18yr old for 6mnths will get us over the line.

10.) 31 Dec 2018 10:34:39
It's not our transfer policy that is the problem Happy, it's the management team's lack of ability to spot a player. Far too many duds and squad players who are nowhere near good enough. In terms of our transfer policy in buying young to develop and sell on for massive profit is a credit to the club.

11.) 31 Dec 2018 19:08:26
There is no fkn problem. We’ve won 7 trophies on the trot and on our way to number 8.



24 Dec 2018 20:39:15
As we approach the window with hope more than expectancy, of BR's permanent signings how many have been +'s. A few still to be proven either way, but for me Dembele is the only standout and Ntcham on his day (which is 50% of the time) is also a star. Other than that most are either prospects, squad players or some not even squad players. I really hope that this time we just go for 1 player - a CF. Or 2 if we lose a CB.


1.) 24 Dec 2018 22:52:26
Edouard and Sinclair?
People get too hung up on new signings, what about the talent we already had?
Under BR forrest, mcgregor, Christie and more recently Ralston and Johnston have massively improved/ broken in to the first team under BR.

2.) 24 Dec 2018 23:58:22
His worst have been DDV (woeful) Gamboa (not good enough to challenge Lustig) Compper (Disaster) Benyu (? ) Musonda (waste of time a primadonna) Hendry (Not good enough) Hayes (not good enough) . Kouassia (still time yet to prove himself)

3.) 24 Dec 2018 23:59:15
It's not the personnel he brought in, it's how he managed the personnel that was already there, the previous manager, Ronnie, if I am being kind to him, I will say he just didn't have a clue about management, although he managed to fool an awful lot of the people on this site, ahh yes I miss those days, not, where we would be arguing about 24 hour athletes, and how many months switching to the zen diet or whatever would it take before we could see the results on the pitch, and no matter how bad the results got, the disciples of Ronnie, praise him, praise him, will still rush to his defence and say, he won two league titles, but the cold hard fact he just could not manage whereas Brendan is a manager.

4.) 25 Dec 2018 01:22:05
We still have Ronny to thank for developing Rogic into a starter. Bringing KT into the fold and buying Ajer. Christie n'all if I'm mistaken!? Whilst arguably not having anywhere near the same backing as BR (e. g. Wanting Elyounoussi from Molde and getting dealt Kazim Richards)

Not for one min trying to commpare with BR but he played his part and IMO deserves a bit more respect.

5.) 25 Dec 2018 01:45:53
Pud, you mention one right back who played at the World Cup who isn’t good enough to challenge another right back who played at the World Cup. And that’s not good enough for you?

6.) 25 Dec 2018 09:40:00
Have to laugh sometimes.
When Ronny was here people were going mental that his signing were being made by park and lawwell but now they are ronnies signings?



16 Dec 2018 17:04:53
If we really paid £9m for Eddy we were robbed. He looks as though he is trying to control a bouncy ball, never bullies opposition and jogs about as if he is training. Don't care what age he is, simply not doing enough for outlay. MD at the age could do it. Not just today, over the last 18 months he has had at most half a dozen stand out performances.


1.) 16 Dec 2018 21:08:23
Dembele had some serious football under his belt before coming to us remember.

2.) 17 Dec 2018 19:03:50
He's not got an experienced CF to learn his trade off either. Hardly say we was robbed as when he's on song he's unplayable.



13 Dec 2018 22:31:23
Daily Mail reports no shame in Sevco finishing 3rd - despite being in a rubbish group. And says we were fortunate and will be papped out in next round! That's truly impartial reporting! Joke media.


1.) 14 Dec 2018 00:43:33
Stop reading that toilet roll of a paper.
We all know what they are like.

Problem is that any quality CB wouldn't want to come now if they are not going to play for 6 months. There can be no excuse in the summer though as the search must surely start now.

I think board realise the mob could have a decent run in and are playing them at their own game, loans or not as long as it's 8 we can properly strengthen in the summer.

I hope not, but he is way better than Hendry to be fair. And Hayes isn't going to cut it. 2 fringe players out and a first 11 starter does make some sense. Not what we would wish for tho.

BR signed most of those mentioned and you are spot on, none would be missed. Hopefully the new signings will be better but would like to see signings that will be instant first team picks.

Morgan signed for us 12 months ago, has had 6 months at St Mirren and further 6 with us. During this period we have been ravaged with injuries and loss of form and he has been unable to get into the team other than the odd cameo. He might come good, like Kouassi.

9 of the players above were signed by BR and I agree they are nowhere near good enough. I settle for a decent CF on loan and a permanent RB if we can get rid of some deadwood.


{Ed0333's Note - now there’s a surprise BR buying players of inadequate quality.

We will win the league, no doubt. As for new signings, don’t hold your breath. A few last minute freebies or cheap imitations are likely- ala Hendry, Hayes, Morgan Mulumbo. No offence to either but Celtic class 1st team players - never will be.

Agree with most of post. Only slight worry all the positives were signed pre BR except Benko who was a loan we got on deadline day because we couldn’t get who BR wanted. Great coach, questionable signings.
