Anybody heard anything regarding boyata leaving?
Has he rejected an offer from Celtic?
If so is he being sold?
If not what's everyone's thoughts on him staying for another contract?

Island celt

Think it's time to move on. The debacle in the summer proves his heart isn't in it anymore. The improved performances were for his future career elsewhere. Off you pop big fella.


2.) 12 Jan 2019 09:01:57
His agent last week said they'll not even talk to Celtic because he's going it was all over the press.


3.) 12 Jan 2019 09:30:12
I think most of if not all Celtic fans are looking to get. CB in I would like to see experience in there but with VRs comments I can’t see that happening but fingers crossed am wrong. Someone mentioned big commanding CB to be announced this week coming I hope so.


4.) 12 Jan 2019 13:11:34
I respect any player that wants to move on, but the way he conducted himself was highly unprofessional. Would be surprised if we don't sign another CB this month and Boyata was away.


5.) 12 Jan 2019 14:53:57
Rodgers proved himself to be a weak manager in this situation.

Boyata should have never played again. He refused to pull on the jersey pretending to be injured.

We lost to AEK and lost 40 mil.

He's not even a good player.

The amount of our fans who sat and clapped a player who has no respect for our club was an absolute embarrassment.


6.) 12 Jan 2019 17:18:58
Agree Tesla! Boyata shouldn’t have been near a Celtic top ever again after his actions in the summer! Brendan let it go and then dembele through the toys out the pram! And like you said, he’s absolute Barry white! Frightening that he’s what Brendan classes as our best defender! I’d quite happily never see the clown play for us again! Him and his agent can take f**k tae there selfs!


7.) 13 Jan 2019 11:18:43
He definitely not signing new contract, that’s we he’s waited to be allowed to leave on a Bosman. As soon as he signs pre contract with new team the club should try and negotiate £1m fee to release him now, gets him off wage bill and out the club and the wages and £1m fee can go towards his replacement.


8.) 13 Jan 2019 13:11:50
We lost more. £40m just to qualify. £14m TV pot and circa £11m CL home ticket package. I hate transfer windows. This one will join the rest if we don’t get a couple of battle hardened defenders. Get Boyata tf as he doesn’t want to be here, Benkovic leaves in the summer too and the thought of CL qualification with what we have left is a real concern.

There are players out there, although selfish clubs wanting money for them is really annoying. A RB and at least one CB who can actually play are a must.


 

 

05 Nov 2018 20:56:04
My pal at work said he'd heard a rumour that Man Utd (his team) would be bidding for a Leicester defender and that would force Leicester to trigger the return of benkovic.
Anybody heard similar?

Be a shame, the lad looks top drawer.

Seen a report boyata is injured albeit on Faceb££k, true?

Island celt

1.) 05 Nov 2018 21:25:33
Going to have to bring in 2 quality defenders in Jan if this happens as I see us selling Boyata in Jan.


2.) 05 Nov 2018 22:10:01
They were trying to sign McGiure late in the transfer window but he’s on a long term deal there so their bid was rejected.


3.) 06 Nov 2018 10:45:22
I may be wrong Ice Man but I think Leicester actually signed him up to a bumper new deal AFTER the window closed. If so this would make it even more unlikely he would be sold in January.


4.) 06 Nov 2018 15:29:36
McGuire singed his 5yr deal in the summer of 2017. So will come down to if Leicester want to cash in. Would be good if he stayed.

Benkovic staying/ going Should not be a consideration in January window. We need 2 quality CH in this window. We need to be ready for European qualifiers. RB and another Striker in January would be a good window. A striker in the mould of Dembele would be nice.


5.) 06 Nov 2018 18:11:53
Not so Tompo88, a new and extended contract just means they'd get more for him if they did sell. HH.


6.) 06 Nov 2018 18:09:17
I agree with you Happy in what we need but sadly I can't see us getting any more than 1 new player 2 at the most.


7.) 06 Nov 2018 21:53:44
Yeah I get that BTC but was thinking it makes it less likely cause as you say it adds and extra 20 mill plus to the price. Still by no means rules it out. I'd be gutted if we lose Benkovic in January he really has steadied the ship.


8.) 07 Nov 2018 02:23:46
Going on 1st impressions, the bhoy benkovic is a cracking player. I would be astonished if we could come up with any kind of deal to extend his stay with us. However, we had our chance to go in a bit high before LCFC nipped in. Now we would more than likely have to offer them more than double of what our original bid was.

My point being, if we discover good players, we should stop messing about worrying about budgets.

I know it's just business from the board, but it affects us year on year during qualifiers.

You need to accumulate to speculate, not the other way round.

Although I'm absolutely delighted at how the team have performed over the last 4/ 5 weeks, a performance to be proud of in Europe seems to evade us.

The board can't sit on their a@$e this next window. We must recruit a player/ players of a higher standard.

It's the only way we can make inroads on Europe.


9.) 10 Nov 2018 07:58:18
How was Thursday's win in europe for u faddy? Were u proud? U should always be proud of the team.


10.) 10 Nov 2018 22:50:33
Celtic don’t budget to be in the CL every year, they budget to remain strong both on and off the field. We’ve already seen what reckless spending achieves across the other end of the city and I wouldn’t want us to go down that route.


 

 

12 Jun 2018 16:36:05
Is it true that the deadline for us to complete the permanent signing of big Ed the 16th
Or was that just made up paper speculation?

Any news on the potential permanent signing?

Fingers crossed 🤞.

Island celt

1.) 12 Jun 2018 17:33:04
Talks with PSG were supposedly set to resume this week IC. I could be wrong, but I'd imagine the meaty bit was negotiated when we loaned him - so perhaps it's just things like the installments, clauses etc that we'll have to iron out?


2.) 12 Jun 2018 19:41:28
Fingers crossed Jim
Some player
After years worth of frustration post the Henrik, Sutton, Hartson era where we struggled for top class strikers, no disrespect to big Sammi or hooper, we land wee griff who came good the the moose and Now big Ed.
If only we pushed the boat out and signed el gruffalo fo £40 million.


3.) 14 Jun 2018 01:14:36
If they are together next year. Amigos mk2?


 

 

14 Mar 2018 11:57:46
Tom Rogic,
Some player aye, injury prone aye, big game player aye.
New contract? For me I hope so.

Island celt

1.) 14 Mar 2018 22:50:38
100% replacement would cost ££££ so keep him all day on and get him to the best medical folk on the planet.


2.) 15 Mar 2018 08:55:59
Not for me. Misses far to many games a season. How can you have a consistent team if one of your main playmakers spends more time in the stand than on the field?
Ye he scores the odd big goal but that's not enough IMO.


3.) 15 Mar 2018 10:17:58
Fit and on form he's unplayable. Providing he's not on / asking for massive wages I'd be really sad to see him go.


 

 

20 Feb 2018 20:13:02
Regardless if you want them as permanent signings or not does anyone reckon there would be the finances to sign Paddy and edouard at the end of the season?
Would this be dependant on the mousse leaving the hoose?
Would anyone be happy with this arrangement?

Island celt

1.) 20 Feb 2018 20:46:25
Love to get Paddy. Would like to think we'd get him for under 10 big one's. As for the big fella, widdnae bother.


2.) 20 Feb 2018 21:50:57
Id be over the moon if we could get 20 mil for dembele. But on current form we'd be lucky to get 10mil.
If we DO manage to get 20+mil for him I'd be delighted if we could sign Robert's and edouard for 15 of that and the board can keep the rest.


3.) 21 Feb 2018 00:13:46
If paddy kicks on for the last bit of the season we will be priced out. If the board/ BR can get 20m for the moose it will be at the cost of edouard not getting games. That 7.5m can't be justified. To keep our strikers happy and valuable going with 2 up top is the only option. Might give teams something to think about as well and give us the option of going direct in games where side or backwards passes are the only things happening.


4.) 21 Feb 2018 00:39:18
Not 100% but if youth is counted Paddy is considered a homegrown player. There are plenty of epl sides that would be glad to have him. It all comes down to where he wants to be, what he wants to earn and what mancity want cash wise. I just can't see it. Even if the moose goes for 20m do you think we will sign 2 players for 15m? Again I can't see it. There is a massive rebuild of our team on the horizon.


5.) 21 Feb 2018 09:52:25
I'm with Jennyfleck, didn't bother with Edouard. Certainly not at £7m Paddy? Mmm, not for me. Forrest come on a ton. Let's be wise here. Hotel in the pipeline etc. nah.


6.) 22 Feb 2018 09:02:30
Give me players before a hotel any day, from what ed has said in the past it won't be a choice anyway, the hotel budget and player funds are separate. Unless I've picked it up wrong.

Was it paper talk or is genuine interest in James forest from klopp?

If so what's everyone's thought on the issue?
Stay / go / how much?

Island celt

1.) 18 Jan 2019 00:46:46
From recent comments Forrest has made I don’t think he’s interested in the pub league.


 

 

16 Dec 2018 09:21:26
Going to be an interesting window, with injuries to Christie, lustig and griffs illness added to the possibility of boyata and benkovic leaving the squad is looking a bit light.

Jan is a notoriously tough window even if the board are prepared to splash the cash.

At best I am hoping for would be three new faces (assuming boyata leaves)
Striker (although we probably need two with griff out)
no.10 to push / replace Rogic
Right back

Goalkeeper - I'm generally happy with Gordon (for spl) despite the distribution and concentration however he will need replacing maybe at the summer.

Is Hayes just a squad player?

Island celt

1.) 16 Dec 2018 10:39:23
Craig Gordon is a difficult one for me because I've been saying for a while we need a new keeper but realistically who's out there who can pull off the type of saves he did against Salzburg but without the daft errors and more accurate kicking?


2.) 16 Dec 2018 12:24:48

Somebody suggested hearts and hibs should play their next derby games behind closed doors due to the incidents in the week there.

Thoughts?

Island celt

1.) 02 Nov 2018 20:30:23
No way. Why should the actions of a few ar§exiles spoil it for normal fans.


2.) 02 Nov 2018 20:34:26
Deduct 10 points aff both of them.


3.) 02 Nov 2018 21:48:58
Be careful what you wish for. The “authorities” will use the same punishment on us if one of us looks at them the wrong way.


4.) 02 Nov 2018 22:13:51
I think something drastic has to be done as this can’t go on. Players and managers from outside Scotland will think twice about coming here if this is going to be standard behaviour. I also think that we have to do something about the paper cups and stuff that are thrown at Sevco players when they go to take a corner kick at CP. It’s intimidation and I always feel that we should be better than that.


5.) 03 Nov 2018 08:31:03
Remember LG getting booked at ibrox for picking up the buckie bottle?

I wouldn’t want the closed door scenario but something needs to be done. No idea what though

Do the SFA have a policy? Mind you the SFA couldn’t manage SFA.

Your response cheered me right up today!
Good to see our boy is on the bench though.

Maybe get a glimpse of him later.

Would you try him against hearts at the weekend then?

What’s playing at Dundee in the cold got to do with it?

Maybe you sneak over at bedtime and tuck him in?

Give him a start at the worst team in the league - makes more sense to me, but I’ll bow down to your knowledge there. Aye.

I wouldn’t rest Sinclair
He’s had plenty time on the bench of late and is just staring to spark again.
See what the young lad can do in the centre - pull the strings and give Rogic a rest for the weekend.

Bloody Nora, he was a solid captain and young players would learn plenty. Not the most gifted centre back we’ve ever had but that doesn’t mean he’s not a decent coach. European and international experience and you want to hang him out to dry for an own goal?
There are some fickle fans on here right enough.
