Heard a few stories that these 6 month loan deals with burke and weah etc is down to Rodgers potentially calling it a day at the end of the season. I'm not saying it's a giving but I wouldn't be surprised either.

IrishKiwi

1.) 05 Jan 2019 17:27:14
Why would you believe that! Utter dross. A manager doesnโ€™t land 6 month loan deals so that the club is worse off in future. Nonsense Irish kiwi.


2.) 05 Jan 2019 18:41:29
My take is that both the loan deals are to cover temporary absences in the squad.

Weah for Griffiths and Burke for Arzani.


3.) 05 Jan 2019 19:04:04
Not a fan at all about loan signing more so with no option to get him signed up on a contract and for 6months to me doesn't make sense.


4.) 05 Jan 2019 20:01:06
Pictures circling that Weah is suggesting that he is on the move with a picture of his locker and hand wave images on instagram could this be clarity heโ€™s on his way only time will tell oh and Bayo follows Celtic on Twitter now btw.


5.) 05 Jan 2019 20:19:02
Good player n can see the thinking in it but i have to say that since lennon left our signing policy has never felt stable to me.

I'd be interested to see the number of loanees we've had from Ronnie to now and what it was before in the same period.

I hope the lad does well for us n helps us clinch the league but then he'd be another gap to fill in the summer when we then go through this process all over again.

Our club seems to run in 6 month cycles.


6.) 05 Jan 2019 20:25:11
The club do what is best for them, they should know what they want, some people would have complained if Hendrie, Commper and Mosunda had been 6 moths loans .
I wouldn't be surprised if Celtic wanted to buy any of their 6 nth loan player, they would buy them.

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.

IrishKiwi

{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 .

Hi Ed can you clarify if there is a limit on how many loans in a club can have at any one time or throughout a season?

Cheers.

IrishKiwi

{Ed007's Note - There's no limit with players from other F.As but that's all changing in season 20/21 to stop clubs like Chelsea and Man City stockpiling players and sending them out on loan. A recent FIFA report showed that one unnamed club had loaned out 146 players between 2011 and 2017.}


1.) 17 Jan 2019 19:51:58
Ridiculous stats that ed. In 5 years celtic could be an unnamed club that's loaned IN 146 players if we keep up at this rate ๐Ÿคฃ
Thanks for that ed ๐Ÿ‘.

{Ed007's Note - I'm sure I read Chelsea have 30-40 out on loan either last season or this season.}


2.) 17 Jan 2019 20:45:56
They have 41 on loan. 5 are goalkeepers.


3.) 17 Jan 2019 21:52:42
Juventus are bad for it as well. Think a few seasons ago including co-owned players they had something like 64 players out at different clubs. This co-ownership is something that needs dealt with, gives teams an unfair advantage.

{Ed007's Note - It's not allowed in Italy anymore - since season 14/15 ended - and will eventually be banned altogether going with what Ed002 has said about it over the years. It's more a South American thing.}


4.) 17 Jan 2019 23:00:23
I never knew that it was already banned. The italians are always upto something lol.


 

 

05 Jan 2019 12:47:20
I really can't get my head around signing a championship player on loan for 6 months. It smells of pure desperation. The lad has potential but I can't see how it will benefit us in anyway. These 6 month loan signings is embarrassing and it makes you wonder where our club is actually heading in terms of ambition. I can't even begin to comprehend the potential scenario of another disastrous window as I think this one could cost us the league.

IrishKiwi

1.) 05 Jan 2019 13:52:05
Kiwi, iโ€™m not sure that I understand it either but to try and describe it as desperation, youโ€™re actually embarrassing yourself. I think youโ€™re desperate to find some fault with Celtic in a similar way to the Scottish media. Makes me wonder what your agenda is.


2.) 05 Jan 2019 14:03:18
Yep getting in 15m players is embarrassing lol. We certainly can't afford them so why complain, Roberts benko were that level Moussa too prob and they done not bad. Get big vic ( unlikely I know) and could be a great window.


3.) 05 Jan 2019 14:21:16
RaYman . burke isn't at that level though.12 games for wba since he signed and kept out of the team by the footballing genius that is Matt philips .


4.) 05 Jan 2019 14:38:22
DRB we hadn't seen Moussa benko or Roberts play till they arrived, I hadn't heard of either, and none played in Bundesliga.
Lets wait and see and don't know how u can say he is not their level when we got them if we never seen them play.


5.) 05 Jan 2019 14:55:23
DRB, Scott Sinclair played 13 games in three seasons for Man City And has been our top scorer last two seasons.


6.) 05 Jan 2019 17:10:31
I don't really want to judge him and as I said in another post I've watched him with scotland and the games I saw he was the standout player . but unlike the others mentioned he hasn't done anything to justify his 13 million tag . never mind a 6 month loan to us . the bhoy is here now so it's up to him now to resurrect his career which after 6 months does nothing for us.


 

 

01 Sep 2018 04:14:50
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. ๐Ÿ‘.

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 ๐Ÿ‘


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 didnโ€™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 ๐Ÿคž


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.


 

 

31 Aug 2018 23:29:43
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 ๐Ÿ˜‚.


6.) 01 Sep 2018 03:21:39

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.

He may be 36 mate but he could still bang in 20 goals for them before the season ends. Quality signing for then even with his age.
I really hope we push the boat out this window.

Wise up stevie. If my team performs as gutless and rubbish as that I'll voice my opinion on the matters no matter what you or anyone elses opinion is. If you can't see that half of that team today either aren't good enough or don't want to be here then I want to know what you've been watching not just today but most of the season?
