Fabian Delph on his way to Celtic?


1.) 17 May 2017 20:52:23
Heard this as well don't know how true tho.

2.) 17 May 2017 21:25:44
Wouldn't want him to be honest. he'll be on funny money for a start, and his injury record ain't great.

3.) 17 May 2017 21:42:04
Looks like the papers taking a flyer here. We seem to be linked with every out of favour player City have during the transfer windows. After the badge kissing and false promises he gave Villa and their fans he was straight onto the motorway as soon as City waived their chequebook. He must be on £70k and there is no chance he is giving 50% of that up to come to us.

4.) 17 May 2017 22:37:33
Delphi is on a 4 year deal @£90k per week as is 26 if this is the type we are looking at it terms of quality there must be cheaper options, there's not a hope in hells chance he's coming.

5.) 18 May 2017 05:41:00
Don't rate the guy plus he would be well out your price range but only time will tell.

6.) 18 May 2017 08:26:48
The guys a merc imo, showed that at villa, won't be anywhere near us, not BR type of player.

7.) 18 May 2017 19:12:31
No thanks.

8.) 26 May 2017 12:42:48
Delph is class, him mccarthy n broony fighting for the 3 holding position, with sinclair, armstrong n roberts (if we can get him, forrest if not, wid be frightening proposition, be up there with best celtic teams we have had in past 20 years hh.



20 Mar 2017 18:51:49
Have the players that are not selected been given some time off. Brendan was on our flight to Dubai last night.


1.) 20 Mar 2017 20:39:04
He heard Pedro left his coaching manuals and he's away to see if he can retrieve them and maybe 1 day aspire to reach the level Pedro is at?

2.) 21 Mar 2017 12:52:41
you old jet setter you dafa lol.



19 Mar 2017 21:33:57
Eboue looks very slow and off the pace, the only reason for this will be lack of game time. Once the SPL is won I expect 5 or 6 players to be rested giving others a chance. KT has been off his game for weeks, he needs a rest with moussa and Sinclair.


1.) 19 Mar 2017 22:11:57
Agreed mate has been an amazing season by all the bhoys this wee blip was always going to happen. After the international break dembele sinclair will have rested. who is your player of the year so far for me it's armstrong although if anyone got it is could understand.

2.) 20 Mar 2017 09:28:47
I would rest them just now, this stupid undefeated record is doing more harm to the players than good, and the past few weeks displays are nervy in my opinion.

3.) 20 Mar 2017 11:27:06
Its as if they just want to get over the finish line, they look exhausted. Im not bothered about unbeaten record. Law of statistics we are going to get beat at some point domestically. League is in the bag, after its secured rest the players and concentrate on making sure we win cup as well.

Perfect opportunity to give fringe players and youth a run out in last remaining league games (after confirmed winners) and let first team squad concentrate on cup games.

4.) 20 Mar 2017 18:38:51
Devils advocate but what about keeping the basis of a winning team together with a view to the semi final? We can't drop 5 or 6 and expect them to just pick it up again for 1 game.

I think being sensible and rotating a few per game is a better idea as we have a strong enough squad to beat any team. Remember we played 3 to 4 games with no striker a few months back!

5.) 20 Mar 2017 18:46:45
Memaself; you need to explain to me at least, how being 33 points clear; chasing the Treble and with so many candidates as player of the year that this doing us "harm". We have a huge Club with increasingly more talented players who if they can't handle success then they shouldn't be in a professional sports team. Please explain?

6.) 21 Mar 2017 07:54:12
If you rest too many then the danger is that they think they're on holiday and then have to pick it up for semi . i agree rotate to a degree but these players deserve to see it through.

7.) 21 Mar 2017 09:38:51
Definitely should keep a strong team on the park, freshen it up wae one or two fringe players and one youth player every other game, the second string deserve a chance when one or two first team players need a rest. Don't think we should take our eyes off the prize at all, treble and unbeaten is no way out our reach, give us fans as much as we give them!

8.) 22 Mar 2017 10:01:51
Ignatius I'm sure you must have noticed our team are not at their best recently, against Hamilton not great, st mirren took the lead and looked as if they could have won in 1st half, and the Rangers game was poor, in my own wee opinion wether you or anyone else likes it, is that the team looks nervy to me, and I believe it's down to this unbeaten record, as it must affect them mentally.



19 Mar 2017 13:10:54
Thoughts for today's game lads? Is it fair to say that we are not playing at our best just now. I want Toure brought back into defence and Biton kept on the bench. maybe see Kouassi today.




30 Jan 2017 14:47:04
Brendan Rodgers was very bullish on sly sports just now saying that Gordon will be playing for Celtic on Wednesday night. Also looks like we will be sending a few more out on loan with only a slim chance of a new player coming in.

18 May 2017 22:30:56
Ed007, who do you expect to come in? For me we need a striker, creative midfielder and a centre half.


{Ed007's Note - I'm not mentioning names because that never ends well for me but I'll say a CB, CM, ST and a RW which is hopefully Roberts.}

1.) 18 May 2017 23:42:10
Ed, if Man City aren't looking for anything more than 6 million for Roberts do you not think there will be several pointless English mid table premier teams who will easily pay that and offer him thousands more . You only have to look at Bournemouth who paid 15 million for ibe. I'd love be Roberts back but he is that good I'd find it amazing he wasn't offered treble the wages to go to a mid table premier league team .

{Ed007's Note - Maybe it's nothing to do with what small English clubs bid.}

2.) 19 May 2017 08:23:20
Come on ED give us a few names! Lol. said before, I think we need a CB CAM and striker. and if we can't keep paddy definitely a RW!

{Ed007's Note - Take your pick from Jean-Kevin Duverne, Charly Musonda, Frederico Venancio, John McGinn, James McCarthy, Dominic Solanke and Paddy Roberts.}

3.) 19 May 2017 16:02:18
Would love wee paddy to stay obviously and maybe the boy Solanke comin in. not sure about mcginn or mcarthy to be honest ED! 2 good players but do we need them. not seen any of the other lads mentioned mate, I'm assuming at least a couple are CB?

{Ed007's Note - Duverne and Venancio are both CBs.}

4.) 19 May 2017 16:18:31
and a couple of english players not named there.



29 Jan 2017 08:33:16
If you look at the team that plays most weeks it's fair to say 9 of the 11 players that play are RD players? In my opinion the Celtic board have not backed BR as well as they could have. With players in and out I'm willing to bet the BR is actually in a negative spend?


1.) 29 Jan 2017 09:32:14
Sviatchenko, Simonovic and Armstrong are the only RD players in a full strength line up. All others are academy, BR or Lennon/ Strachan signings.

2.) 29 Jan 2017 10:30:14
Need to factor in wages though. Sinclair, Dembele and Kolo will all be on £20k p/ w at least. Been a while since we've dished out those kind of deals in the one transfer window

3.) 29 Jan 2017 11:54:07
Good point LM. I reckon you could double those figures though.

4.) 29 Jan 2017 12:27:27
There doing not too bad considering they haven't backed him all that well. RD said it was his mistake trying to change everything at the club at once BR had to come in and asses everything the summer will be his big chance to bring in his own players if he feels they will improve the team. Dembele had been spoken to well before BR took over.

5.) 29 Jan 2017 13:16:09
We must be the only club in the world that would be miles ahead in the league and in with a shout of a domestic clean sweep and you are still bitching like a spoilt child about how much we have spent, its ridiculous.

6.) 29 Jan 2017 14:37:28
Not bitching FAB, Celtic are not playing well just now but winning! The squad needs new players.

7.) 29 Jan 2017 15:27:13
Not playing well are you serious? We've won 26 out of 27 domestic games, what more do you want?

8.) 29 Jan 2017 23:19:11
the are not RD players or BR players, they are celtic players

may as well say Broonie is WGS player.

9.) 30 Jan 2017 17:15:09
Sorry mate every team who wins the league will have at least 7-10 one nil victory's, you can't possibly think we should be winning every game 4 or 5 nil, not playing well, did we not just beat the lions unbeaten record?



31 Dec 2016 09:37:02
Really looking forward to the game, even the noises that McGregor will start can't subdue my enthusiasm. Hope the boy plays well but I just don't see it with him. He is the weakest link in our team. Still 0 - 3 Celtic for me, Hail Hail.


1.) 31 Dec 2016 09:48:14
Rogic is a massive loss and I'm not a fan of McGreggor either Dafabet. But we should be able to beat the Huns with 10 men. 3-0 to the TIMS for me too 🍀.

2.) 31 Dec 2016 10:59:41
Mcgregor is not that bad imo domestically he'd walk into any other team in Scotland and would comfortably b the best player and can nick a goal.



28 Dec 2016 22:01:59
Right bhoys predictions for Saturday. 0 - 3 Celtic all day long.


1.) 28 Dec 2016 22:08:46
0-4 forest first goal.

2.) 28 Dec 2016 22:19:05
Dafabet: said it b4, 3-1 to us and a pen to them and a red card for Garner:
Must look up the odds on that 1.


3.) 28 Dec 2016 22:21:06
Im thinking 1-3 or 1-4 Celtic. I think they will score. Comfy win for me.

4.) 28 Dec 2016 23:15:38
2 each for me, 2 for Sinclair and 2 for Dembele .

5.) 29 Dec 2016 00:05:49
I fancy armstrong to get on the scoresheet v them 4 1.

6.) 29 Dec 2016 00:09:28
Watched their game tonight with my brother in law (his tv) . Couldn't stop laughing at the standard of their football (much to the annoyance of said brother in law) . If we can't take more than three off them there will be something far wrong. COYBIG.



24 Dec 2016 14:42:43
Good win by the lads but no matter how hard I try I can't take to McGregor at all. Big Sutton mentioned in the past that the boy is not Celtic class and I totally agree. Just my personal opinion but I hope he does not get near the first team again.


1.) 24 Dec 2016 14:56:29
mcgregor played as well as anyone before he was wrongly sent off in my opinion. Terrible decision from a terrible referee.

2.) 24 Dec 2016 15:13:59
Wee mcgregor definitely gets more undeserved stick than any player in our squad.
He is a very good utility player and every squad needs one of them.
He also chips in with goals and assists like his one today.

3.) 24 Dec 2016 15:26:24
He's got his flaws like losing possession and stray passes, but on a good day he links up well and can set-up or score a goal and seems to be ahead of GMS and CHristie in the managers plans .
However, I reckon BR will play Rogic and or Armstrong before him when possible and we might even bring in a midfielder or two in the next couple of 'windows' and he is much better than Bitton.

4.) 24 Dec 2016 15:34:55
Can't agree lads, the team played better with him off the park.

5.) 24 Dec 2016 15:39:54
I'm with you Dafabet, his passing is terrible, yes some are good but the majority through balls he trys are behind shite. He's not the sort of player we need to progress.

If the fee is anywhere near 20 million get moussa sold now! However we must spend everything that we bring in. Just my opinion but I think moussa will be here next season. Brendan won't authorise the sale.

If Brendan Rodgers doesn't get the proper backing in the transfer market then no Celtic manager ever will whilst the current board are in place. They have done the hard part getting a brilliant manager in, why not back him with proper investment? There has got to be a minimum of 50 million sell on value for our top prospects in the current team. Now is the time to invest without looking a future sell on values!

Let's just say Biton and Gordon are sold. That will be another window where we have spent less than we have brought in. Let's speculate a bit, the champions league money won't be touched by the looks of things!

Guys, he clearly doesn't want to stay. He hasn't said so but his non commital response when asked suggests he is not for staying.

I think the board will back Brendan massively. He wants to players brought in. I think our spend will be 15 million.

Scott should be fined the max possible. He has opened the door for rangers next week.
