Apparently West Brom have agreed a fee of £2.9 million for the boy sawyers from Brentford. I'm assuming we weren't really interested in this lad after all if we aren't prepared to match that bid.

I think we go into transfers with the feelbgvthst works is working on 1980’s price lists. Baulking at £3m for a player who we hope to take us to another level is totally bollocks. It’s as if we deluberatly try to make qualification for the CL and moving so far ahead of Sevco as difficult as we can. We get in quality we have been promised it’s doomsday for them. If a player is to add that something special and is outwith our budget at £3m then it’s hard to see us getting Anyo e of class. We spent the same on Boli and he looks awful so far. It’s early I know but he just does t look worth half that and if he is to replace KT we have put another defender who looks a complete liability in a defence we all know has been needing sorted for years. Quality costs, if we have no intention of getting that in don’t tell us we are looking at it. Unless of course you say we just like looking but if they don’t accept Provy Cheques we move on. Sevco are teetering, let’s finish them. Qualifying for the CL would be a good start but we need the players now and the game bed we need won’t cone for a bag of shrapnel.


2.) 27 Jul 2019 14:29:27
We may have bulked at paying £3 m for a player who after further consideration we may have felt that we couldn’t bring this player to a new level . Or on close inspection we may have felt this player may not have fitted into our squad, little things can change manager, s decisions.

Being reported Arsenal are apparently coming in at £22 million now for tierney. what part of £25 million are they not getting? Especially now if Napoli are interested, what makes arsenal think they can offer £22 million if the price is supposed to be £25 million? Surely Celtic being in control of this situation just chase arsenal once and for all, tell them the exact figure one last time and if they aren't prepared to meet that quote don't come back with anything less!

They are doing what Celtic have done for years mate wanting the best price for the player they are buying .


2.) 04 Jul 2019 10:36:03
Well in case you missed the reports lately? Crystal palace have quoted 80million for zaha. Arsenal offered 40 million Seems they don't understand club valuations . I also read they bid 50 million for Harry McGuire after man utd had a 70 million bid turned down? Surely they can't be that bad?


3.) 04 Jul 2019 11:36:05
Del it’s what bussineses do I am not condonen it but it’s the way of the world everybody wants a good deal I also want top dollar for the wee man.


4.) 04 Jul 2019 12:14:41
It was reported when they made their first bid, that they only had a total transfer budget of £45 million, then they bid £50million for Saha,


5.) 04 Jul 2019 12:54:33
Wouldn't accept anything less than 30m for Tierney, people can laugh at that amount for a player from our league but celtic are entitled to demand it in todays transfer market. Tierney would handle it at any top club in any of the big leagues so when the likes of wan bissaka goes for 50m after 1 season with Crystal palace then it's only fair.
We need to keep our best players and players especially like Tierney who is one of our own only come around once in a blue moon. I understand we're a business at the end of the day and it's hard to compete with wages/ ambition etc and if a player wants to move on and develop themselves then we have to respect that but bids of 15m then this apparent 22m is a joke for a player of his potential.


6.) 04 Jul 2019 13:13:09
I agree with Greenclover 100%, we should be demanding a packet for KT.


7.) 04 Jul 2019 13:58:32
Kt has captained his country gaining 12 caps, has won 9 trophies, has champions league experience scoring and assists in the process and he has Europa league experience also.

It doesn't matter what league he plays in really at the end of the day he is undoubtedly a talented players that lots of clubs would knocking on the door for if they actually needed a player of his position. As long as we keep giving the rich clubs our players for cheap prices, they will keep coming for them at cheap prices.

It's about time the board stood up to these teams ( I don't know but maybe they are right now ) I would be setting the price at 35m for him regardless of what KT or anyone else said. You don't pay you don't get him simple as that!

Arsenal are trying to take the p**s.


8.) 04 Jul 2019 14:47:21
Lewis dunk £40million.


9.) 04 Jul 2019 16:53:48
That's what I'm saying Phliphlop and Arsenal offered 15 for a 22 year old with a wealth of experience, chase them.


10.) 04 Jul 2019 17:03:08
If you were to put a price on Andy Robertson at Liverpool, then that's what KT is worth. Not too far apart in ability, just robertson he's had the oportunity to perform at higher level.


11.) 04 Jul 2019 17:26:27
@duffandphelps true businesses go in with low bids to start negotiations but Arsenal are being very disrespectful. For a start the alleged 2nd bid of 17.5m plus 7.5m if they won EPL is a joke! They know they will never win EPL as they can't compete with Man City and Liverpool.

Personally I hope Tierney ends up at Napoli as Arsenal are at it.


12.) 04 Jul 2019 17:31:12
Take 25 plus nacho moreno? He’s 33 but still has a good engine on him, could get 2 seasons out of him easy and has plenty experience in Europe could even help the youngsters develop.


13.) 04 Jul 2019 19:19:49
Philtim I’d rather Tierney stayed and said am here for 10 in a row get it right f**kin up the lot ae yeez 😂.


14.) 04 Jul 2019 20:26:20
Hopefully Naka lol.


15.) 04 Jul 2019 21:44:20
do any of you really think that pistol pete and mr desmond can't and don't stand up to these other clubs, in our two we have very shrewed and tough businessmen.


16.) 05 Jul 2019 03:24:49
I’ve continually said on here I’d take no less than £30 million for tierney but £25 million seems to be the figure that sets the ball rolling ( too cheap in my opinion) with arsenal playing funny buggers, I’d like to see tierney stay, but if he’s to go I too hope it’s to Napoli, get it right round these EPL teams that think they’re the be all and end all.


17.) 05 Jul 2019 08:02:58
So if you were selling something say for £250 and somebody said £150 and you said no I’m looking for £250 you don’t think some people would then say what about £200 and you might say call it £225 and then sell?
If asking price is £25m and we are offered £22m there’s a decent chance a deal would be done.


18.) 05 Jul 2019 09:44:40
Arsenal are doing what Lawell has done for years. That strategy had seen us stall and go back. If Arsenal want to be contenders they really should not be looking at how we do stuff. Or did stuff. It seems that Peter tripped over the tin and somebody saw it before he could hide it again.

Some reports this morning about the boy Andrew Gutman from the U. S possibly coming in. Apparently had a trial with rangers earlier in the season. With reports regarding Tierney and his hip problems, this one could be a possibility, not seen anything of this guy right enough.

Garryc1977

1.) 10 Jan 2019 08:04:58
Not sure about this guy if They had a look and didn’t want him well why would that make him an ideal prospect for us?


2.) 10 Jan 2019 08:37:40
Reports say that they did offer him a deal but so did we.


3.) 10 Jan 2019 08:46:36
Chat I've heard Rich was they did want him but he is choosing us over them.


4.) 10 Jan 2019 08:52:59
Rich they offered him a deal.

Having just watched us struggle to see off a very defensive but organised Dunfermline team then anyone who thought we'll just turn up in league or cup duty due to us having won the treble treble and win all in front of us this season then I'm sorry, it ain't going to happen. That was dire today, 1 yes 1 shot on target Dunfermline had today and they score. we had roughly 36/ 37 sits 11 on target and it takes 120 minutes of football to see that team out the way. Simply not good enough. I'm expecting big moves in the transfer window this week with FIRST TEAM SIGNINGS. sick fed up with us signing projects for the development squad. it's not good enough 😡😡😡.

Here's a question and not taking us being knocked out the champions league as an excuse. where are the signings the squad desperately needs?

Garryc1977

1.) 16 Aug 2019 18:43:31
Although we brought in 3 defenders at LB, RB and Central defence, we could probably be doing with the same again. We have plenty of players who can play left wing but I would still get a top class loan player from the Epl to make us as strong as the right wing.


2.) 16 Aug 2019 19:02:35
Goal keeper LB Attacking LM.


3.) 16 Aug 2019 19:26:54
Rb lb a must Boli cover lb and lw a broony type midfielder a must be happy with that maybe few more as cover.


4.) 16 Aug 2019 19:40:12
LB RB and Holding midfielder, maybe a big CF. Don’t think we need a lw, we should sign that Scott Sinclair, he comes to watch a lot of our games.


5.) 16 Aug 2019 21:40:34
Don't need a left mid when we have one that averages 20 goals a season and more than 10 assists a season.
Just fecking play him.

We need LB RB and a hard tackling defensive midfielder.


6.) 16 Aug 2019 23:54:51
lenny is too stubborn to admit he was wrong and play sinky. that was his downfall last time around. playing all his old pals.


 

 

13 Aug 2019 21:42:32
Absolute shambles of a performance. £10 million yes £10 million of defenders signed in the summer sitting on the bench one a supposed LB and we play cal Mac at LB. explain yerself Lennon!

Garryc1977

1.) 13 Aug 2019 21:45:50
Rodgers got his answer to McGreggor at left back at the Bronx. Why did Lennon need to try it again?


2.) 13 Aug 2019 21:52:21
JFP1888, obviously Lennon never watched that game. Kennedy was present though. Absolutely no excuses from Lennon or the board or the players.


3.) 13 Aug 2019 22:18:56
Garry if you think Lennon didn't watch a Celtic rangers game you need your head read.


4.) 13 Aug 2019 22:56:07
Kev I was joking, but for Lennon to try it again thinking he could pull it off when Rodgers couldn’t? U honestly believe I think Lennon never watched that game?


 

 

11 Aug 2019 14:20:49
Does anyone know if benkovic is injured? I see he's not even on the bench for Leicester. I'd love the big man to come back on loan this season if Rodgers isn't going to give him a look in. Can never have enough good players and he's certainly a good player.

Garryc1977

1.) 11 Aug 2019 15:17:42
Personally I would have no dealings whatsoever with Rodgers or Leicester, for me it would only start an association with them that would have them sniffing around our best players. Celtic keep well clear.

Kdycelt, it doesn’t really matter it was the last day of the English window, it’s just annoying that arsenal never paid the acceptable fee earlier. Had they done it instead of messing around for months maybe more signings would’ve been made by now. who knows.

With KT looking at going for £25 million, good chance Sinclair will be away for £3 million, Lille apparently sniffing around jozo and always a possibility of something happening with ntcham. That £28 million along with £20 million for dembele, £7 million for VVD move to Liverpool, Armstrong £7 million move last year, that’s serious money been brought into the club over two summer windows. Yes we bought edouard, bought shved, bought Jullien, Bolingoli and Elhamed but you’d like to think there’s a huge amount of cash now there for Lennon to really go and strengthen this team. We’ve just released 3 strip sales, sold out season tickets again, not to mention a possibility of champions league football. Yes I know we’ve invested in the disco lights, the pitch etc but this window wether people think it had to happen or not, we’ve lost lustig, boyata, KT and looking like Sinclair, all first team players.

For me Lennon should be given the full £25 million to strengthen our team. Gutted we’ve let KT go, annoyed that arsenal have pissed about for over a month leaving it till the last minute to sign him when Celtic made it abundantly clear from the off the acceptable fee. Absolutely no good reason why Lennon shouldn’t get that money given tierney was a product of our youth system costing us absolutely nothing.

Two games we played this week. Lennon made a pigs ear of it against Cluj there Is no getting away from that. he can blame individual errors till the cows come home but ultimately his tactics and selection played a huge part on that night. Then there’s yesterday, 120 minutes of football against Dunfermline, they have 1 shot in 120 minutes on target and score compared to our overall 30+ attempts. Defensively right now we’re a shambles. £3 million was spent on bolingoli, a supposed LB, LW call his position what u will but for me ( and I know it’s very early days) but he doesn’t look comfortable in either positions. Can’t defend for sh#t and going forward he ain’t much better. Then there’s the £7 million jullien, again not seen a great deal of him as he so far has spent most his time on the bench but when he has played he looks bang average. Caught sleeping a few times yesterday and that’s Dunfermline we played. Middle to front I think we’ll be fine, especially domestically but defensively is a huge concern. If we get a quality LB in and another RB to compete with Elhamed, who I think is a very decent player, and if jullien can show why we shelled £7 million for him, I think we’ll be fine. But signings are a must.

One of the biggest faults for me is the signings and scouting policy. for a wee while now with the odd exception we’ve been bringing in players that quite frankly aren’t good enough.
de vries, gamboa, hendry, compper, benyu, kouassi, Allan, Hayes and I’m sure there’s more I can’t think of off the top of my head. like ED has said for long enough now, we need a director of football in place permanently and upgrading the scouting network. There’s been far too much money wasted in recent years on mediocre players wether it be on fees or just wages, getting decent contracts on good money and contributing f**k all to the cause. That needs addressed pronto.

Utter tripe from Lennon. How he can’t admit that playing mcgregor at LB was a mistake I’ll never know. Yes there were individual errors in each of the 4 goals but the tone for the night was set by him putting mcgregor at LB whilst keeping a £3 million LB that he signed on the bench the entire night. Can he not see that upsets the whole dimension of the midfield? He’s quick to point out that twice on the night we were in control of the tie but rather than make changes to make it harder for Cluj to get past us he continued to watch the shambolic defensive display. He’d rather hide behind the “ collective mistakes” than come out and admit he poxed it up.

Daddy u say when we get past AEK and beat them at ibrox, everything will be forgot about. no it won’t yes it would take a s**t load of pressure off Lennon and the board but his tactics and selection the other night and getting put out by an average Cluj team won’t be forgotten about. And on the flip side of your coin, say we don’t get past AEK and get beat at ibrox, what will your opinion be then?

I get that Jim, and I wasn’t having a go at u personally, I just think there’s a lot of fans out there that really need to waken up to what’s going on here rather than it taking a cup defeat or the losing of a title before admitting to themselves we should be doing so much more. Getting put out on Tuesday against a bang average Cluj team really should be a wake up call. that’s us out the champions league the past 2 years against bang average sides. Had we spent wisely in key areas and not had a manager playing let’s f##k about system and tactics we’d still be in it mate.
