Morning ed,
Regarding these so called cryptic messages from dembele, have you heard anything thru the grapevine? A lot of pro english newspapers have unsurpringly picked up on it and suggest he's on his way down south.
Could it be on he's way back to Glasgow for a new contract mate? 2 reasons I don't believe for a second he's teasing a move south is because the club's involved wouldn't stand for it and the player himself could jeopardize any move and secondly the manner of the message points towards good news for the hoops. Ie green text with shamrock etc.
Also regarding Armstrong's contract situation, if he hasn't signed by say early August will the club put him up for sale do you think and try get money before the window shuts?
Thanks as always bud.

{Ed007's Note - The stuff on his social media was about him travelling to Boston after the international games with some speculating that he's there to sign a sponsorship deal with NB - but his agent doesn't seem to be there which is odd if he's there to do any deal.
I heard late on Saturday night that the Club were looking to offer Dembele a new improved deal to try and convince him to reject any move elsewhere.}


1.) 12 Jun 2017 18:31:54
I think with all the reporters etc pestering him with the same questions he has already answered, he's now on the wind up with them, was it not balotelli that used to drive around london on deadline day just to wind up reporters, maybe moussas taking the piss lol?


2.) 12 Jun 2017 23:10:47
Just read the daily express reporting Celtic have offered 1.3m plus Christie deal could go down the next 48 hours.


3.) 13 Jun 2017 02:03:45
Thanks for that ed. I think keeping him another year, signing Robert's full time and extend Armstrong's contract will be more important than bringing in any new faces.


 

 

29 Nov 2016 17:57:31
Ed, do you know of any interest in the boy larin from Orlando that's being reported in the daily rag? I mentioned during the last window I'd heard we were watching him.
I know he's very highly rated over there.

IrishKiwi

{Ed007's Note - I've not heard anything, sorry.}


1.) 30 Nov 2016 15:58:27
Ed is the American market something celtic are looking to tap in to for players?

{Ed007's Note - Not that I know of, Kev and unless it's the top *ahem* 'stars' there are work permits to consider.}


2.) 01 Dec 2016 13:21:08
Cheers ed.

{Ed007's Note - (yes)


 

 

26 Sep 2016 09:21:43
Dare I say it but if moussa dembele carries on with this form for for the next year or 2, do we have Scottish footballs first $20m+ player? World class player in the making, still a bit rough but he's banging them in with right, left and head, something that's extremely rare. Not sure why but he's starting to remind me of Thierry Henry.

IrishKiwi

1.) 26 Sep 2016 12:41:27
what does that make leigh worth?


2.) 26 Sep 2016 20:44:30
I hear he will be sold to sunderland for 2 million then we will launch an audacious bid to bring back rasmussen.


3.) 27 Sep 2016 07:47:49
I heard that too about Rasmussen.


4.) 27 Sep 2016 09:11:45
Dont see it myself. More like Anelka for me.


5.) 28 Sep 2016 14:28:51
Robbie Keane a cert.


 

 

29 May 2016 01:49:47
Heard a rumour from a guy from my local supporters club that we have had scouts watching Orlando city striker Cyle Larin. I think he's Canadian and 21 but don't know much else about him. Do you know anything about him ed or know of any interest?

IrishKiwi

{Ed007's Note - No.}


1.) 29 May 2016 13:53:23
6,2 and great goal return of 24in 38 games. Surley could'nt be any worse than Cifci.


2.) 29 May 2016 16:32:00
Just checked him out on youtube and he looks a good finisher and good header of the ball, would defo be worth watching .

Thanks for the great work as usually over the transfer window.
I don't envy your work but I like everyone else appreciate it.
The whole window has been a shambles but at least we can all concentrate on football for a bit. πŸ‘.

IrishKiwi

{Ed007's Note - Thanks buddy. I've never been so glad for the window to close, I don't think it's as bad as some people are making out but it was certainly a massive letdown and the same mistakes must not, no they can not be allowed to be repeated in January and next summer, although during January it is really difficult to get the players you want rather than players that their clubs don't want.}


1.) 01 Sep 2018 12:56:16
Well done ed and welcome back. am just surprised there was no plan in the event dembelle left to bring in a striker last season the 3 of them were injured and we had to put Sinclair in.

{Ed007's Note - Our plan for the long term was -and hopefully it still is - Nick Powell but it would have been very difficult to get Wigan to sell during this window or the back-up was a years loan for Shane Long. The way Dembele played it there was no time or point in trying to sign Powell and my hunch is that Rodgers just didn't fancy Shane Long.}


2.) 01 Sep 2018 13:05:07
Thanks for your great work over the transfer window.

{Ed007's Note - You're welcome mate πŸ‘


3.) 01 Sep 2018 14:01:04
If THIS board won't give BR what he wants, they won't help ANY manager.


4.) 01 Sep 2018 14:11:01
Pity Lawell didn’t put in as much effort.


5.) 01 Sep 2018 14:31:35
Is Powell any good?

He was a prospect at Man Utd a few years back but haven't heard much about him since.

{Ed007's Note - He made the wrong choice going to Man Utd (Neil Lennon tried to bring him here at the same time) and if Rodgers could get Powell's head right he would be a sensational player for us, he's a genuine talent and according to Ed001 is one of the best, if not THE best technically gifted players to ever come through Crewe's academy - and that's some achievement when you consider Crewe have had one of the top academies in England for years under Dario Gradi.}


6.) 01 Sep 2018 14:47:24
Do you not think we could be priced out of a move for him if he has a good season Ed? Is he predominantly a striker, centre mid or attacking midfield?

{Ed007's Note - Powell is out of contract next summer and he can play both as a No.10 and as a striker.}


7.) 01 Sep 2018 15:28:22
Cheers Ed well that's good news may be in with a chance come Jan/ July.

{Ed007's Note - Fingers crossed 🀞


8.) 01 Sep 2018 15:55:07
Best wishes to you and your wife ED. I know it may sound crass but I hope yesterday went okay for you both.
If we are interested in Powell then I hope we are a lot more professional in the way we handle it than we have been in this window.

{Ed007's Note - Thanks, Gerry.}


9.) 01 Sep 2018 20:59:42
Can I add my hope that you and your wife are able to get through this difficult time .

The thing that most people forget is that no matter how financially rich we think we are . We are really the paupers shopping for targets we aim for . We have no chance if the financial heavyweights of the. championship eye our targets . It is damn hard and only for the French boy, I would have been very happy .
Our problem for the last 10 yrs and longer is once we get a good player the vultures come and sign him.

I agree it's a great bit of business but it's absolutely disgusting that we never had someone lined up as a replacement even as a backup striker.
It's even more disgusting that we will probably replace him with a freebie or at best another $500k prodigy.
But the most disgusting aspect of this whole window is that dembele transfer fee will go some way to make up for missing out on CL money which will go straight into Desmond and Lawwells pockets.
Before this window started I had very high expectations just like most other fans and it's turned out to be the worst window I can remember. We go into this season now a heck of a lot weaker than last while they have improved massively.
I personally want Desmond and Lawwell etc to **** off now, their lack of ambition is allowing them a way back and that is unforgivable.

IrishKiwi

1.) 31 Aug 2018 23:40:40
Kiwi, how much did we spend on dembelle when he came in? .


2.) 31 aug 2018 23:48:59
and that makes it ok johnbhoy? think its more to do with the value of the player to the team than to the bank balance . im sure if we get turned over on sunday youll still be thinking if the profit made?


3.) 31 Aug 2018 23:55:19
400k John.


4.) 01 Sep 2018 00:30:12
Dembele clearly didn't want to be here so he had no value to the team.


5.) 01 Sep 2018 01:19:16
Moaning that we will only replace a player we sent 400-500 thousand on with a player at 500 thousand πŸ˜‚.


6.) 01 Sep 2018 03:21:39
No player is bigger than us πŸ€πŸ€πŸ€.


7.) 01 Sep 2018 09:42:11
I love the Celtic I do
I love Celtic do you

That's good stop the moaning for now. Whilst everyone is entitled to their opinion some of the comments on here were way too angry and over the top. as if they do actually hate the club as so bitter. Without knowing the actual facts of what has really gone on time will tell. Regardless our club marches on. Hail Hail our day will come. Starting tomorrow against manager no 5 De da De da da da da De da da De da Mambo.


8.) 01 Sep 2018 11:33:03
Brendan removing him from training says it all. attacking the management on Twitter shows where Dembele stands and for me that was the end of him. happy memories, Brendan obviously thought he had him for the next year so why have a 4th striker lined up. Give Griffiths a run and we will see the Bhoy from a couple of seasons ago.

You want Desmond gone all you have to do is buy him out?

AEK Athens drew Bayern benfica and ajax
Surely a group we could have got out off.

IrishKiwi

1.) 31 Aug 2018 01:31:48
Why, we couldn’t beat AEK, and let’s face it, we see no benefit whatsoever from being in CL, we get absolutely hammered, then make an absolute fortune that gets stockpiled god knows where, then still they sell players and replace with free old men, totally fed up with Celtic board right now.


2.) 31 Aug 2018 04:23:56
They will finish bottom probably without a point.


3.) 31 Aug 2018 04:52:53
Not a hope in hell.


4.) 31 Aug 2018 06:43:29
We would've been lucky to finish 4th in that group.


5.) 31 Aug 2018 07:03:39
We wouldn't have been in that group.
We would have been in pot 3 with Ajax while AEK were in pot 4.


6.) 31 Aug 2018 07:31:31
I agree. We would have struggled in that group. No insentive to qualify these days, as we never get the benefit of using the rewards. Unfortunately Celtic are a champions league name, but sadly we are a Europa league team.


7.) 31 Aug 2018 08:28:01
We'd have finished 5th in that group.

Yaya has passed a medical with an unnamed club according to his agent. What's the chance 😁.

IrishKiwi

1.) 29 Aug 2018 09:35:20
It's Fulham according to talkshoite.


2.) 29 Aug 2018 09:40:07
He's passed a medical for an un-named LONDON club from what I read. I'm hearing he's on his way to Arsenal. would have been a great addition up here working with Kolo again but it seems he feels he has a point to prove in the EPL still.


3.) 29 Aug 2018 09:54:31
What the tweet said was he had completed a medical in London. Then went on to rule out west ham and crystal palace saying Yaya is a champion last place is not for him.

No chance. You just need to look at his demeanor over the summers shambles to answer your question.

You may be right with your first point jj. But it still asks the question why no one has been signed since edouard.

If have him back in a heartbeat but only on a permanent deal. There's no doubt Rodgers rates him but I'm not sure he would prioritise a $6-8m winger on our budget. $6-8m would be better spent on defence.

They are all on bigger money so I doubt it. They aren't Scots or celtic fans at the end of the day so it's easy for one of us to make that presumption.

3 points and a clean sheet is good but rosenborg are one of the worst teams we have played in Europe in recent years.
We are really struggling going forward and anyone that refuses to acknowledge it's a problem is kidding themselves.
Rogic needs punted. Hasn't lifted a hoof since he signed his contract. Forrest, McGregor, Eduard, Sinclair and others look lost and lacking any craft.
I don't fancy us to get out of this group based on our form since start of the season.
Call me a doom and gloom merchant but its just my opinion.
