Any truth in this boy Wilson from Manchester United ED? If he's anything like the one we've got on loan just now then we shouldn't bother lol!


{Ed007's Note - He's available for loan and has been offered to us.}

1.) 14 oct 2015 19:42:11
cheers ed! Don't think he's what we're looking for mate to be honest! Is there any word on big cole ed? It's went pretty quiet on that front mate!

{Ed007's Note - Allardyce getting the Sunderland job should hopefully put paid to any chance we had of signing him and Bolton are sniffing about too.}

2.) 14 oct 2015 20:15:56
cheers bud.

{Ed007's Note - (yes)

3.) 16 Oct 2015 00:31:55
just looked up the boy Wilson, seems like a cracking prospect,I think he could do well up here.



20 Sep 2015 14:59:26
See Carlton Coles been linked with us ED! Think he's out of contract,u heard anything? What age is he now? Used to be a decent player but I thought he's been injured a lot recently!


{Ed007's Note - He arrived at today's game with John Park so it's not looking good.}

1.) 20 Sep 2015 16:48:57
Dont think he's ever been a decent player I think he'll just be anoth miku, ljunberg etc.

2.) 20 Sep 2015 18:15:35
He's just another Fortune I would rather we signed him than Cole and I don't rate Fortune!

3.) 21 Sep 2015 07:37:44
Think big Cole could do job for us aslong as we play 2 upfront

4.) 22 Sep 2015 07:26:17
We might need him if LG gets a ban or injured

5.) 22 Sep 2015 11:13:17
I agree I think he could do a job for us, would take Cole getting a game over Stokes anyday of the week.



20 Sep 2015 14:08:57
Well it had to happen one game! Ambrose and boyata together at centre half! Ooooooofffft! If that doesn't give the other team a lift I don't know what will loll! What's up with big Jozo ED?


{Ed007's Note - Rumour is that he picked up a knock the other night.}

1.) 20 Sep 2015 14:47:49
Well just sat down , crowds a bit sparse as usual but hopefully we can put therapy few weeks behind us and start to show everybody why we're champions , going for a good performance and 4-0 win at least mon the tic

2.) 20 Sep 2015 15:30:32
Some of the stuff we're playing is brilliant to watch today , more I see of t rogic the more I like



31 Aug 2015 01:02:39
See the old Steven fletcher rumours going about again! Surely must be pish ED? He's on bloody 50 grand a week!!


{Ed007's Note - If this is true the he beginning of the end has begun. I'd rather sign Normal Stanley Fletcheror Jennifer Feltcher .}

1.) 31 Aug 2015 01:35:19
We all knew this would happen mate! It's the same old shite leading up to the window! And the same old players! Don't believe a bloody word of it! Just wanted to see if u'd heard anything mate! 4 million pound centre halfs and 50 grand a week EPL strikers! I can here lawells arse collapse from here! Hahaha utter pish!

{Ed007's Note - Dh88 there isn't a CFC that wouldn'tbe elated to see some money on quaiity players but years of being let down has made very a cynical man - still think there will be a Man City loanee brought to appease sections of fans.}

2.) 31 Aug 2015 02:35:40
You and me both mate! Just never believe these stories when I hear them! There isn't a chance in hell of these 2 players being with us after the window shuts! Yeh that could be a good shout mate! Man city is who we usually going running to about this time in the window! Wish the window shut tonite so we don't have to hear any more bullshit!

{Ed007's Note - I didnt know who to aswer without coming across as a flippant to any players wards. You know I'd never do that to offend you, it id upset a tourist Klansman that I (swear ) and gave you the (finger)
At lleast he didn't invite me in a boat for a one way ride. - like Wiliam Walton swimming isn't my strong point.
Can we keep the chat about Scotland's newest club to the page set aside for it, there are plenty of posters with no interest in lower league football so just keep clear, if we ignore their posts they might take the hint and go.}

3.) 31 Aug 2015 09:00:02
I have nothing againt Steven Fletcher, he's not prolific but he's a tidy footballer. However, if we are willing to pay hefty wages to bring in a striker on loan from the EPL then surely Hooper is the man to go for!? At present we probably make (and miss!) more chances than when he was here, he'd bang them in for fun!

4.) 31 Aug 2015 10:38:02
I don't think Fletcher would be a bad signing at all. The biggest issue would be keeping him fit. But at the wages mentioned, I'd say there's definitely better out there. I mentioned last week Beric from Rapid Vienna has scored almost a goal a game for them and it's been reported over the weekend that he's going to St. Etienne for 5m Euros. Surely we can compete in that sort of market.

5.) 31 Aug 2015 12:14:45
Mentioned Beric before kev would be a great signing imo. Be humped if he goes for 5m euros. There's a few strikers in that 5-7m EURO bracket I'd love us to just go for but it just isn't happening. Boetius to Basel for 2.5m EUROS got my blood boiling. Would have been perfect for us and for those that care we could have easily trebled our money.



30 Aug 2015 19:33:56
Hearing that we're close to signing this croation defender ED,any news? Talkin 6m euros!! Surely not mate? And if so why the f**k did we not spend sum decent money before the CL qualifier! Would rather we spent this kind of money on a striker if it was true! Not that I believe it is.


{Ed007's Note - I've been told CFC and West Ham have both had bids of £3.2 million accepted and it's up to the player.}

1.) 30 Aug 2015 21:03:59
Ed see what is really annoying me as much as a love big virgil everybody knew he was getting sold this summer why not just move him on get few players in for pre season with the money surley we would have had a better chance of qualifying for the champions league with a few new additions with the sale of vvd

{Ed007's Note - I really wish I had the answers mate, I feel the exact same as you. The fact we went into the CL qualifiers with Griffiths and Ciftci as our main strikers is just ripping the pi$$ out of us supporters, it's a damned disgrace and the buck stops on the heated driveway o the club's highest paid employee - Peter Lawwell, a man who is better paid than some CEOs in the EPL and better paid than any of our players, that's unheard of at other clubs.}

2.) 30 Aug 2015 21:22:53
Sad to say but got to agree with you guys, sad to see what's happening at parkhead. We pay money to come and watch so why no re pay us paying fans with some proper entertainment. We're not asking for Messi we just need some guys to light up the game and get the fans back and bring back "the thunder".

3.) 30 Aug 2015 21:26:19
ED if any EPL team is in for him then we can forget it! Sounds like a lot of pish to me buddy! Another one of lawells we tried to get this player and that player but here's some diddy on loan to keep u lot quiet! Well we won't be quiet anymore!

4.) 30 Aug 2015 21:27:15

I said exactly the same thing months ago. I would have sold VVD first at the start of preseason and brought in 2 new centre backs at that time. They would then have had the preseason ges to build up an understanding in time for the qualifiers.

Maybe we will learn from this but I doubt it.

5.) 30 Aug 2015 21:47:41
Well if West Ham are in for him then I'm pretty sure we are fucked. Then it will be the same old story of aw we really tried to get him but we can't compete with the epl. Should have been sorted out BEFORE we went out of the champions league.

{Ed007's Note - West Ham are a bit of a basket case in the transfer market this summer, just because they've bid doesn't mean anything, they made some very odd moves without actually getting anywhere with deals.}

6.) 30 Aug 2015 22:43:43
I think that Celtic and Scotland is not necessary the favourite place many of our targets wish to go to . Maybe we have to wait until the closing days of the window for us to land any of our targets .
I wouldn't be surprised if our board or Mr Lawwell were slow at doing the business, but on the other hand it might be the agents and players holding out for better than Glasgow .

7.) 31 Aug 2015 10:05:27
If West Ham United want him he'll go there as slaven bilic is a countryman?i

Alright ED. sent a few posts lately and a few haven't been put up. don't know if it's a problem on my end. just thought I'd check mate.


{Ed007's Note - I can't see any problem mate. There's the one I've just answered you on, there was one yesterday and then before that it was the 24th you last posted according to what I've got on my screen.}

1.) 30 Jul 2016 01:49:29
Cheers ED! 👍🏻👍🏻 4.5 million is quite steep for a guy who's hardly what u would call been on top form the past few years! Looks like BR fancies getting him back to the player he was when he had him at Swansea I guess. if he can manage that then we'll have a good player! And it will hopefully put and end to seein Forrest anywhere near the team! He must have looked at wee Roberts the other nite against Astana and cringed! Now that's what a winger does! Another one who should be long gone from celtic park!

{Ed007's Note - But it's buttons if some of it depends on CL qualification, say it's a 4 year deal and £500k every year we're in the CL, half a million out of CL money is nothing but Villa would be gambling with a possible £1.5 million payout. That's just a guess with numbers, Beav btw and assuming a 4 year deal this summer would only cover 3 seasons worth of add on money.}

2.) 30 Jul 2016 08:59:01
Ed, I don't think Villa fancy the gamble either but if no one else is prepared to chuck £4.5 million at Villa for Sinclair they are left with a player on the books taking £30k a week (not sure if he is on that but expect it won't be far away) for the next 2 years just to warm the bench. I think they will wait to see what happens on 2 fronts. One, if Celtic qualify for CL this year, as that may give them some encouragement and secondly just wait and see if anyone offers £4mill plus for him. I think £4mill upfront would get him. Is there any other club linked with him?

{Ed007's Note - The price to English teams is a straight £6 million deal (but again that would be negotited to suit) and according to Sinclair's Mrs there are English clubs interested in him. Sunderland were on his trail but that' went down the plughole since BFS took the England job.}

3.) 30 Jul 2016 11:32:54
4m is far too much for him . if we are prepared to pay that for a player who had had one good spell on his career why not show a bit more ambition and buy Marco pjaca 1-2 million more and far superior player.

{Ed007's Note - Is that the same Marko Pjaca that cost Juventus 25 million Euros last week?}

4.) 30 Jul 2016 13:32:23
Never seen that ed he was brilliant against us a couple of year ago the price was around 3.5 million watched his progess before the euros seen quotes of 5-6 price . just shows what a good cameo at a major tourney does for your value.

{Ed007's Note - And the difference in prices depending on who's buying.}

5.) 30 Jul 2016 15:09:11
Ed didn't know it was a 6mill asking price for English clubs? don't think he is a £6mill player but the money down there is obscene but he is never going to go to a big club so it's a lower Premiership side who may buy him and they tend to be very careful with their cash, so maybe that £6mill price tag helps us?

{Ed007's Note - Remembering that EPL sides must have 8 home grown players in their squad do you really think an EPL side would pull out of a deal for a home grown English player over a couple of million of quid? The fact he's English is probably why they have stuck an extra few quid onto it.}



29 Jul 2016 21:20:44
So now we've went public with our interest in Sinclair do u think this means we're almost there with a deal? What do u think ED? I know there's been all sorts of figures banded about, anywhere between 3-6 million! U any idea what villa are actually after buddy?


{Ed007's Note - I've heard that it's around £4 -4.5 million but that's including add-ons and it's them and the structure that's the hold up.}



24 Jul 2016 18:31:42
So skinnybhoy what's the script with Sinclair then mate, heard from a few people a deals close! And what's this bamford talk about. u seem to be the guy in the know on here lately! Lol.




09 Nov 2015 22:52:04
Belter of the season so far! John Collins says that we were better than molde over the 2 legs! We had more possession he says! Is this guy at the wind up! Or did I somehow make up the 3-1 going on 5 or 6 in Norway, and the utter embarrsment at Celtic park! I seriously worry for our football club if the shite that the management team come out with is shared by the players! Better than molde both games! Hahaha! I loved Collins as a player but he's really starting to piss me off with the utter nonsense he comes out with! Do urself a ****n favour and stop the bullshit eh! We know a shambles when we see it! Staggering the nonsense that comes out our management teams mouths!


{Ed007's Note - I did warn you all what Collins was like, he's a useless coach and after nearly 18 months I still don't see what he brings to the table in the management team. John Kennedy is already a better, well rounded and more experienced coach than Collins and it shows who RD trusts out of the two if you watch the dug-out.}

1.) 10 Nov 2015 07:49:37
Hardly a ringing endorsement for John Kennedy that Ronny trusts jk more than jc is it. He trusts Our defensive coach more and our weakest link is the defence.

2.) 10 Nov 2015 08:50:47
I honestly find Collins comments staggering! He also pretty much said we'll never sit in for a draw or we won't just boot the ball up the park because we've players who can pass out from the back! Does he actually watch boyata ambrose or Blackett when theyr on the pitch? Just cannot get away from my view that this management team Havnt got a clue! And as for Kennedy! The guys done nothing to warrant being in charge of our defenders! Which has been proved by the woeful displays on the pitch! Put him back to youth set up and get rid of RD and Collins!

3.) 10 Nov 2015 11:22:03
I see that, in a 'News' Feature on STV last night about the Oldco/Newco debacle, John Collins' name and his 'No-Comment' on the EBT's situation, (which were lifted from an actual 'Sports Feature' interview included later in the show), and even the Celtic Logo was 'tacked-on' to the R*****s one in the backdrop to it - as if lending some form of Credence to the Financial Woes south of the water .

4.) 10 Nov 2015 17:58:49
Ed why doesn't RD get rid of Collins if that is the case he does not trust him. Is Delia really so weak that he would allow the board to force players and management on him. Maybe that is why the teM have no fight in them.



05 Nov 2015 21:49:55
Well it's been a couple of hours since the final whistle and my feelin is not of anger! It's just the realism that our management should go for there own sake aswell as the clubs! I really don't want it to turn nasty for Ronnie because he seems like a nice bloke! But his euro record is abysmal! Home and away defeats to molde are the last straw I'm afraid! We've went in the space of 3 seasons beating Barcelona to be humiliated on a regular basis by European also rans! Molde Malmo Maribor to name 3! Get a new manager in ASAP and let him get bedded in for next seasons CL qualifiers! Let's not be fooled by a few victories in the SPL please! Enough is more than enough! Time for a change now!


1.) 05 Nov 2015 22:01:03
have to disagree when you give the manager a fiver and tell him not to spend it all in the 1 shop i'm afraid your on a downhill spiral that's why lennon left and i had little time for him its why strach left and him i liked so don't blame ronnie you can only piss with the mccoist you got.

2.) 05 Nov 2015 22:07:07
Think I agree with you DH, ever since that game against Legia, after it I was left with a feeling of ' that was awful ', Ronnie is a nice person, but does he have the attributes to become a top class manager, there might be a role for him at Celtic in coaching the youths and bringing them on, but I think he is very pig headed and its his way or the highway sort of thing, to be anything more than a youth coach, but, and its a big but, if he gets to the end of the season, and he comes to his senses, and maybe starts playing the younger players instead of the established ones just as an experiment to see how they do, who knows what might happen, ok DH maybe i don;t agree with you.

3.) 05 Nov 2015 22:16:14
No one forces Ronny to play guys like Armstrong, Gordon (Clearly not the same keeper this season) , Boyata, Blackett and of course the seemingly undroppable Johansen. These players have kept failing Ronny time and again this season. Brown is another and the fact we've bought 3 players from Dundee Utd over the last year shows how far we've fallen.

It's not the system it's the players whom occupy it that keep failing. Rogic had a poor night although I still rate him and Bitton wasn't at anywhere near his best, Ronny needs to start getting brave with guys like Boyata and Johansen and even Gordon because these guys are going to cost him his job, it's clear as well Lustig isn't up to it anymore at RB at this level and should be moved to CB. Major decisions like these Ronny needs to start getting right but I fear it's too little too late for him.

4.) 05 Nov 2015 22:21:56

economic disadvantage does not explain malmo…maribor. legia…molde…so it is indeed a taxi for ronnie …

we are not asking for miracles here…we are asking for the team to demonstrate a hunger, desire to win and a tactical set-up that gives us a greater chance of victory. Biscuit tin is another thread and not for this evening

RD had all the economic advantages this evening and a fortnight ago and we were run ragged 5-2 going on 10-4.

5.) 05 Nov 2015 22:23:28
What management team is really going to improve that shower of sh**, if your defenders can't do the basics or players can't pass to each other that's the players fault, can't always blame the manager.

6.) 05 Nov 2015 22:26:07
Mate please stop kidding urself! Yes the qualities not what it was! But we're talking about basic tactics and organisation! I'm not even going to attempt to argue the point with u mate. its as clear as the nose on the end of your face that ronnies is clueless when it comes to basic tactics and how to set up a team! And if u want an example look no further than molde! A team with a fraction of our budget who scored 5 going on 10 over 2 legs! No big time players or 50 grand a week stars! But have qualified from the group with 2 games to spare! So again I'll say please stop kidding urself eh!

7.) 05 Nov 2015 22:41:11
It appears a lot of our fans seem to be falling for the press boys patter exactly which Scottish club managers recently have had excellent results in Europe? Not many that I remember some great celtic managers have been constantly poor in Europe. The mighty English premiership teams down south with all their multiple millions constantly struggle for consistency in Europe. so what gives our club the God given right to succeed annually in Europe. The poor results are ammunition for the Scottish press to have a dig at us I would love us to be able to perform better in Europe but nowadays there isn't much difference between £2 million pound players and £500,000 so unless we are prepared to go with a long term plan to establish a model to create a conveyor belt of talent then I feel we will be where we are for a very long time?

8.) 05 Nov 2015 23:04:37
Bigp clubs have been trying to produce these academy players for years. No one can do it. What makes you think we can do what no other team can do and create teams from the youth system? It's just a daydream.

9.) 05 Nov 2015 23:29:03
papapabz, its the managers job, if it was so easy to be a good manager, that you left it to the players, the world would be full of good managers, but it is not like that, i have been haunted, haunted after standing in murrayfield watching celtic against legia, it was almost the same team as the season before, apart from what's his name, but the performance was totally different.

Tick67,strange point about McCarthy mate! He's not a goal scoring midfielder mate, and his goal tally is pretty decent considering he's played at a far higher level than anything up here.

Got to agree with Niall here SB. lots of ifs buts and maybe! But I suppose it is a rumour site lol! Wouldn't Mind McCarthy to fair but really can't see him leaving EPL! God just imagine the anti climax if we don't sign anybody else this transfer window! After all the talk about this player and that player!

Couldn't agree less GJ! We are what we are because we play in Scotland! Utter nonsense! So how does this explain the 6th best team in Norway, yes Norway not Spain or Germany! Totally dominating us over 2 games? Because the last time I looked the Norwegian league wasn't up to much! And u say he's a coach and this is the done thing at most clubs! Maybe Uve got a point there! But the problem is he ain't a very good coach mate! A good coach learns from his mistakes! And a good coach knows how to set up a team in more than one way! And a good coach can see in a game when things need changed! For me in Europe Ronnie has done none of these things in Europe! Legia Malmo molde Maribor! 4 teams we've played woefully against! And 4 mediocre teams at that!

My opinion is we won't win them! Did u actually watch the molde games? Did u by any chance notice the spanking we got? In Norway especially! And no Ronnie doesn't deserve a 4th, yes that's 4th chance to get in the CL! How can he possibly deserve a 4th chance if he can't even win in the EL! Aye but it's me who's heids up his arse! 😂😂😂😂😂.

Dn30 away and gies peace pal! Ronnie will never get us into the CL! He's made our club a laughing stock in Europe! It's down there in black and white pal! If we fail to win any of our last 2 EL games we'll be closing in on the record for consecutive games without a win in the competion! That's a fact! He's been put out of the CL 3 times in the space of a year! That's a fact! I agree totally with Gerryc! Ronnie shouldn't be judged on his results in Scotland! Any manager in the SPL could win that league with Celtic! And again like Gerry said, it's nothing to do with wanting a manager with connections to the club! I want a manager who can organise a team and has the tactical ability to Change things when theyr not working! And u won't have to worry about people coming on here and changing there opinions when we get 2 great results against Ajax and fenerbache, because that ain't going to happen!
