Has Skinnybhoy spoken to his contact yet about the marquee signing that's imminent? What an exciting time to be a Tim!


1.) 24 Aug 2016 15:58:55
Just seen on another forum that some board member says we are going to be very busy until the deadline? players in/ out? ain't got a clue.

2.) 24 Aug 2016 17:49:06
Henrik sorry not spoken to her yet! A friend from Liverpool told me that rumour down there is we are after Sakho and Lucas? Don't know how reliable maybe Ed can confirm I thought Sakho was a defender. There will also be a further few leaving Celtic.

{Ed007's Note - I've not heard anything about us being in for a Liverpool player.}

3.) 24 Aug 2016 14:04:43
Spoken to a friend in Liverpool apparently rumours down there are Sakho or Lucas to us? Maybe Es can confirm if this is a rumour on Liverpool forums.

{Ed091's Note - Celtic couldnt afford eithers wage

4.) 24 Aug 2016 19:32:53
ed091 maybe winning trophies, the CL and good wage is what they want rather than money and no medals? I know they have the cash to show for the career.

{Ed091's Note - youre right, theyre both signing so they can win a 1 horse race.

5.) 24 Aug 2016 20:31:52
Cheers ed091 with regards to wages I was told the marquee signing was not coming for the money but for the prestige of playing for club in Europe and to win trophies! Which makes me think this particular player may not have won much in career having played at high level 🤔🤔 what's your thoughts?

{Ed091's Note - a club in europe after 3 seasons out despite being the only team capable of winning their division.... A scottish team in the CL is simply making up the numbers. If sakho or lucas want a massive wage drop, to move to scotland and be embarrassed in the CL group stages, then sure, celtic are signing them both. you heard it here first.

6.) 26 Aug 2016 07:32:37
Wrong ed091 we have not had 3 years out of Europe. This is the first time in three years we have qualified for the group stages of the cl. Can I ask you a question too ed091. What would have to the EPL if sky decided to pull out . and the only reason your league is bigger is because of sky TV money. If we had that kind of investment up here from sky our league would be as just as good as yours.

{Ed091's Note - are you as deluded as BR? There are many reasons, which don't include money, as to why the spl doesnt come close to the epl. Location: who'd live in Motherwell over London?
Who would want to play in front of (majority) of minuscule grounds when you can play in front of old Trafford, anfield etc.
The weather, the food, the lack of home grown talent in Scotland and the fact it's a 1 team league, makes it an unappealing league.
It's really nothing to do with money.



31 Mar 2016 14:51:27
Heard from a good source that Steven Fletcher is on his way. Apparently he's bought a house in Glasgow and wants to finish his career at Celtic. Was told it's a done deal but I hope not. 7 years too late in my opinion.


1.) 31 Mar 2016 17:20:44
Don't want him anywhere near celtic.
Not good enough

2.) 31 Mar 2016 19:29:53
Funny that considering he is in talks with Marseille over a permanent move.

3.) 01 Apr 2016 10:33:00
Just passing on what I've been told mate.

4.) 01 Apr 2016 12:17:37
Can't see how Marseille would be in a rush to hand him a permanent deal, he hasn't scored a league goal for them yet which doesn't really surprise me.

5.) 01 Apr 2016 22:49:27
He HAS had a home in Glasgow for years!



15 Dec 2015 18:44:59
Ed is there any truth in the rumour we're close to a deal for Serbian winger Zivkovic? Heard he's been dubbed the Serbian Messi so must be good!


{Ed007's Note - There's nothing in it, Ajax turned down a 7 million Euros bid for Richairo Zivkovic in the summer and although he's at Willem II on loan his Ajax contract runs until 2019.}

1.) 15 Dec 2015 22:55:36
Ed does zivkovic not play for partizan Belgrade? And if it is him this rumour will no doubt have been started by a football manager fanatic lol.

{Ed007's Note - Sorry mate, I've never even heard of him lol.}

2.) 16 Dec 2015 12:29:06
Teams have had bids in the region of 8 million euros knocked back for him already. Supposedly.



14 Sep 2015 22:07:02
Heard from a good source tonight that RD wants to return to Norway as he is homesick. John Collins offered his services as manager but the board said no.

Don't shoot the messenger


1.) 14 Sep 2015 23:14:41
When you say "don't shoot the messenger"!
Does that mean nobody has told you anything?
And if it doesn't happen? You can say "you were told from a good source and just passed it on"?
Just "for talking sake" I hope both are true!

By the the end of the weekend, if worst case happens things need to change!! IF things go well? Do we paper over cracks?
I'd be very surprised if the blind running the club haven't sounded out a new manager/coach already?
You and myself could coatch this team to the title!
The body language of certain players is a cause for concern. And that's when you know unfortunately!
"It'll aw come oot in the wash"

2.) 15 Sep 2015 07:14:46
I'm just passing on what I was told bbj. This is a rumours site after all

3.) 15 Sep 2015 09:55:40
Theres rumours and there's lies. Clearly a lie. John Park must go

4.) 15 Sep 2015 10:39:53
It's 100% true

that I was told this. Ed maybe the powers that be should change this website to Celticfacts.co.uk so we don't upset some people

{Ed007's Note - You've been here long enough now to know people will just ignore facts as well if they don't suit their point of view.
I was told last week that RD was looking at moving into a house big enough for his daughters to stay more often now they're older.
Just for clarification, you're saying JC went behind RDs back to the board and offered to be our manager whilst we've got a manager who is meant to trust JC as his assistant?
If that's true JC should have been sacked on the spot, who's ever going to trust him again?
Did he approach the board directly or was this done through a third party, perhaps someone who knows JC from their short time at Hibs together?}

5.) 15 Sep 2015 12:44:19
No Ed I'm not suggesting he would have went behind RD's back. I don't know the details. Perhaps there was a meeting with the management and board. I guess we'll find out in due course.

Could I ask why JC is portrayed as a villain a lot of the time? In my opinion he's one of the best players we've had in my time watching the hoops (I'm 31) but has he done something to merit the criticism he gets on here?

{Ed007's Note - What's he done since he stopped playing to warrant being appointed assistant manager to a man he'd never met? When it was announced I upset a few people on here when I said he was a terrible coach with little tactical knowledge and he couldn't be trusted - nothing I've seen's changed my opinion on any of that, it's strengthened it if anything.
If you watch during games it's mostly John Kennedy that RD talks to because JK's already a better coach with a better understanding of the modern game than JC, JK works hard and wants to learn whereas JC thinks he knows it all already.}

6.) 15 Sep 2015 13:57:47
I take your point Ed. I wasn't sure if he'd done something specifically. Obviously I wouldn't want him as manager because like you say he's done nothing of note since he stopped playing. Maybe he was brought in for the fitness side of things. I heard he's got a good six pack!

7.) 15 Sep 2015 16:26:52
I agree with you Ed but I would like to add if john Kennedy is the one setting up our defence then he is not the man for the job I can't count on how many goals we have lost to set pieces this year alone a lot of that is down to the players themselves but the set up has to be questioned to big time. As JC if I was RD I would not trust him I have said that from the start you never see him out the dug out giving advice or getting them to fight to get back in to a game he just sits there. Why is he really there at all on match days?

{Ed007's Note - I'm not a fan of zonal-marking either, it didn't work under NL and it isn't working (yet?) under RD, just give the player a man to mark and tell him to stick with him. As I said last night we're working with a whole new defence and I'm hoping Simunovic can bring a touch of steel and organisation into that area.}

8.) 15 Sep 2015 22:33:36
Has zonal marking ever worked for anybody,anywhere,anytime.

9.) 17 Sep 2015 16:18:20
Good zonal marking works if everyone does their job . Aberdeen's 2nd goal on Saturday came about because someone was asleep and allowed the sheep free room 3 yards out . Gordon was stuck on his line and did absolutely nothing to stop the ball. If he had moved out to meet the ball , it would probably have hit him and anything could have happened .

If we are going to stop crosses from been converted to goals imo we need to stop the crosses coming in . Stop giving away free kicks , in dangerous areas and corners .
We thought we could exploit Malmo with our aerial power but in the second game we hardly got a free kick or corner to exploit the situation .



23 Aug 2015 10:50:29
Just read that Celtic have accepted a bid of £10.5m from Southampton for VVD and he will join them on Wednesday. Any truth in this Ed? Saw it on a Celtic page on


{Ed007's Note - I don't think any deal has been agreed yet but Southampton at that price should be about right unless there is a late bid from elsewhere to hijack the deal. RD and PL are still hopeful of talking VVD into staying if we qualify but it looks like they're fighting a losing battle.}

1.) 23 Aug 2015 16:17:17
We just need one last big performance from him on Tuesday. If he is going I'm sure he'll want to leave on a high.

2.) 23 Aug 2015 18:18:14
10.5m can't believe we would low ball our selfs!

3.) 23 Aug 2015 18:31:19
Kevbhoy, I would hope you are right but if true this could work against us. He might hold back to avoid injury.

4.) 23 Aug 2015 18:54:37
£11 million bid was in place last week, VVD will be gone this week, please God we qualify for the group stages and we might get a decent player or 2 in, failing no CL it will be a few more loan players and a back 4 of izzy mulgrew Boyata ambrose.

5.) 23 Aug 2015 20:49:06
Celtic have just dismissed VVD as load of nonsense

6.) 23 Aug 2015 20:57:42
If vvd puts in his best performance in a celtic shirt against malmo he can leave with my blessing but the money we get back we have to put in a serious bid for denayer as city have just signed otamendi so denayer is further down the pecking order

7.) 24 Aug 2015 12:37:32
If we're getting £10m plus for him I don't think we can really argue too much. He is outstanding in our league but would he be so commanding in the EPL? I'm not saying he wouldn't but there are many excellent SPL players who make the move and they don't cut the mustard at all. There's no doubt Van Dijk is a talent but it's a gamble for teams down south as well. For every one player who makes the move and makes a reputation there are probably ten who don't.

8.) 24 aug 2015 17:47:55
denayer. is in turkey discussing a move to galatassary

{Ed007's Note - He's held talks with Marseille last week as well.}

9.) 24 Aug 2015 19:04:14
SOS Bhoy how much do you think Denayer is worth? At this moment in time Man City would struggle to get £5 mill for him. I can't see how £10.5 mill is low balling VVD. If he goes to the Prem and does ok he might be worth £15 mill. He won't go to the Prem and be outstanding in that company so he is a bit of an unknown at that level. To get over £10 mill for any player coming out of Scotland is a big deal. What other Scottish team have had anything near that price for a player. No one. Don't compare john Stone at £25 mill. He is English and that virtually doubles his sale price. He has also got over 50 prem league games under his belt. £11 to £12mill would be the absolute maximum we would get for VVD

10.) 25 Aug 2015 01:09:39
There are many EPL players who get transferred for riduculous amounts of money intra the EPL who don't cut the mustard eith er,the EPL is just the next village down the road who happen to have black and white tv while we are still listening to the radio,playing up here does'nt make you a lesser player than someone playing down there,it would not make any sense ,financial or otherwise if VVD,did'nt get sold for anything less thann 25 million.

Hi ed/ boys

Just watched a short video called The Asterisk Years. Very interesting and shocking! Apologies if you've already discussed it and I've missed it but if you have a spare half an hour I'd recommend looking it up on YouTube.
Here we go to 27 in a row.


1.) 06 Nov 2016 17:59:36
Interesting watch HT 🍀.



08 Sep 2016 16:02:32
Celtic to win 5-2 on Saturday? Just like we did the first time we played the old club. 66/ 1 which of course means if you put a pound on you get £67 back. Fate?


1.) 08 Sep 2016 17:52:30
I see them sitting too deep for us to take 5 off them HenriksTongue. A draw or marginal defeat is a good result for them. Don't see any reason for them to venture out of their own half. 3-1 is my bet as I don't see our centre halfs or a Rodgers team not losing a goal. Very much hope you're right and I'm wrong though. I wish Warbo the Hunnite leader a mighty smiting in the land of the Timmites. Guys, no need to argue about new company or old company. In business terms (firm) the previous company are no more. End of old firm. But the new company are supported by the same follow followers so old rivalry is still there. In simple terms a different shite but same flies.

2.) 08 Sep 2016 18:34:03
Funny to see the great warbiola losing the plot at the press conference today it reminded me of the famous Kenneth Williams quote in Carry On Cleo "Infamy infamy THEY'VE ALL GOT IT INFAMY" lol.

3.) 08 Sep 2016 19:24:43
James in fairness to Warbo I watched press conference and unless I seen an edited version he didn't seem to lose the plot? Have actually been fairly impressed with the guy as a man and had only heard good things about him from down south until now which until last week actually had me a bit worried. But after his photoshoot in Belfast last week that fear subsided. Nobody with any principles would have posed with the Shankiill Defenders. So fear not and feckm and I for one will be singing along to the wee ditty on Saturday when we're pumping them 'Oh Warburtons a fanny he wears a fanny's hat etc'. Right in about them.

4.) 08 Sep 2016 19:42:31
He did lose the plot he was going on about "the pundits say we're going to get pumped at least 4-0" and "we'll take that on board and show them" etc etc. Its in his head we are the better team and we are and they WILL get pumped 4 or 5-0.

5.) 08 Sep 2016 20:25:29
Hope your right James 🍀.

6.) 09 Sep 2016 07:46:17
"they've all got it infamy" sounds like most fans on this site. the referees a celtic fan must be a conspiracy against celtic.

7.) 09 Sep 2016 15:24:17
My arse he's a Celtic fan, he gave you a penalty for an incident he didn't even see, he's a cheat like the rest of your other friend's Madden, Thomson, Beaton, McLean etc.



02 Sep 2016 15:43:14
Ed with Aberdeen in the news today for stating there has been no previous meetings between themselves and sevco, do you think Celtic will do likewise? I have a feeling that the Green Brigade will have something planned for the game but I hope the club do something to welcome Scotland's newest club to Celtic Park.

Obviously we have played them twice in the cups (before anyone points that out! )


{Ed007's Note - I doubt the Club will do anything similar mate. All the GB need to do is have a banner or tifo of the UEFA letter.}

1.) 02 Sep 2016 18:25:05
what was in the letter ED Tambhoy the first.

{Ed007's Note - uefaletter

2.) 02 Sep 2016 19:11:39
Any links to Aberdeens comments Ed or HTC?

{Ed007's Note - They didn't make any comment, on their official website it's showing up as there being no previous meetings between the clubs.}

3.) 02 Sep 2016 23:19:40
I will always be disappointed that Celtic never spearheaded the stance about Sevco = Same club garbage.
As the most powerful club in Scotland, we should have championed the truth and forced this falsehood out in the open where none of the liars and pretenders would have had a leg to stand on.
Channels like SLY and S (evco) TV and the biased media in Scotlandneed to be put in their place.

4.) 03 Sep 2016 00:07:18
Cheers Ed.



01 Sep 2016 09:49:56
Having had time to get over the disappointment of last night I think we can all agree that the finger of blame has to be pointed.

Where is Skinnybhoy?


1.) 01 Sep 2016 09:57:51
He's changed his name to marque bhoy.

2.) 01 Sep 2016 10:20:10
Hi there first post here not to dissapointed with yesterday feel our players are good enough for europe under BR. What about K. Ajer for midfield ball player.

3.) 01 Sep 2016 21:50:02
We have brought in 5 players, if we are going to develop our own players we need to let this window be our busiest in terms of players coming in, as we need to have space for our youngsters to come in and show what they can do.



31 Aug 2016 17:59:41
Ed you promised at least one new signing today! Where is it?
Skinnybhoy you promised a big signing! Where is it?


1.) 31 Aug 2016 18:20:53
Disappointed again for some weird reason, Groundhog Day so why is it a surprise lol
It's been an ok window, nothing more than that, I know the wage structure has probably altered to suit Toure and Sinclair plus a singing on fee here or there!
Don't think we should be scarmbling about on the last day but surely we could've pushed for at least one more? Hey ho go with what we've got and bank the money again 👏🏽.

2.) 31 Aug 2016 18:28:48
I think that the club will be happy if we have the best squad in Scotland.
I can't see them signing big names for the Champions league campaign as whoever we were to sign probably wouldn't make much of a difference in that group.
I think that they'll look on the Champions league as a nice windfall, and that they will only spend some of the proceeds in January if things are not going so well in the league.
I would be delighted though to be proved wrong.

3.) 31 Aug 2016 18:33:17
I'd say a good summer based on previous. As good as it could have been though? I'm leaning towards no. You would think that 'not budgeting ourselves on the Champions League' might provide that extra injection of quality when we do.

Not sure I understood your reply ed007. Are you having a go at BR?


{Ed007's Note - No mate, not at all. It's the sheer hypocrisy of Chris' s reply to the OP. According to Chris he thinks more of people who give anonymously without seeking publicity and I just wanted to know if Brendan Rodgers hase gone down in his estimations after his recent publicity about helping at a hospice at Christmas or donating the proceeds of the sale of his mother and father's house to the hospice. Why did Rodgers need to tell us - to make sure there's plenty of photographs and camera
I don't see any difference in what Ferdinand has done, they're both doing a good thing yet getting treateed differently and I'm genuinelly interested in what Chris sees differently between what Ferdinand and Rodgers have done?
If Rio wants to spend 1/2 million quid on toys then he deserves all the plaudts going, how many kids does that make happy on Christmad morn and why should people like Chris look down in them on them as if it's a publicity stunt when he obvioulsy have no idea how tough it was growing up for Rio with not much yet Bredan is pushing for a Sainthood because he'll be visiting a hospice that he gave a lot of money to.
So what is the difference, Chris?}
