According to a couple of papers we have 9 days to come up with 10m for Edouard. Interesting.

1.) 22 May 2018 07:05:53
Papers jim it'll b a lot less than that ad Imagine.

2.) 22 May 2018 07:20:37
Rodgers confirmed himself That it was way less than the original 9 million quotes by the papers so that just tells you.

3.) 22 May 2018 08:53:09
Few reports saying it's around 5 million then add ons and sell on fee that could take it a lot higher.

4.) 22 May 2018 09:14:57
That sounds more like a ransom than a transfer lol.
We already agreed a deal for £7m so we can get him for that, no way we will even pay that much tbh.

5.) 22 May 2018 09:34:52
Sevco hacks stirring rubbish that isn’t there. Boy are they hurting.

Rogers stated the figure is nowhere near what was floated, by the same Sevco hacks.

We are trying to sign him and I think we will. Another Hunskelper signing is their worst nightmare.

Sweet Dreams.

6.) 22 May 2018 09:45:52
Mally/ Ken, I thought Rodgers just said that it wasn't 7m?

7.) 22 May 2018 10:04:50
It's not 7 million the gaffer came out and told the press that weeks ago.

8.) 22 May 2018 10:54:55
Even if it is, we will treble that when he moves on in a couple of years. That’s killing them too. :)

9.) 22 May 2018 11:00:21
O was wondering about this 10 million Brendan has came out and told us it's less than the 7 million first quoted so could the 10 mill include his wages and bonuses for in thinking 5 yr contract hh.

10.) 22 May 2018 11:37:40
Jim a thought he ment lower than 7 mate maybe nearer the 5 mill mark.

11.) 22 May 2018 12:06:30
£5m would be a steal. We know what we are getting, it ain't no gamble he is worth every penny. I also think having Edouard and Ntcham at the club is very good for Dembele.

12.) 22 May 2018 12:08:52
I’m thinking he will be round about the same price as Ntcham, similar contract aswell.

13.) 22 May 2018 13:52:01
Obviously the lower the better Mally. Getting into 8 figures suddenly makes a deal seem more of a risk. For arguments sake, if Dembele was to be sold for 20-30m, then I'd be ok spending 10m on Edouard. But ideally I'd like Dembele and Edouard.

14.) 22 May 2018 14:02:54
It's going to be a bit of a quiet week with a lot of players on holiday so it's big news for the them. If eddy gets over the line added to the renewals it's a good start. I don't think psg will be looking to extend a loan deal with the exposure he has had with us as it has alerted a few clubs who will pay more than our 5m+ add-ons.

15.) 22 May 2018 23:12:42
must be true if its in the Hun loving press.

16.) 23 May 2018 12:41:44
4m i heard.



30 Oct 2017 17:45:03
KT signs new 6 year deal. Brill.

1.) 30 Oct 2017 19:16:40
Great news


Get in Son . HH.



08 Aug 2017 11:09:49
Reports suggesting Paddy Roberts sees us as his preferred option on the table. With his rep meeting with Citeh (I'd guess he isn't part of their plans this season) get something done Celtic! I'd even take another loan if that was to be it, his position was the no.1 target for me this window and I'd rather have him for a year than not at all. A permanent deal would be great however we'd want the buy-back clause to be worth several million profit, just to make sure we don't end up losing anything spent more than anything.

1.) 08 Aug 2017 12:06:30
I'd hope they'd make him a Celtic player properly now; If a loan, surely we want the right to buy.

Presumably, Roberts thinks he might make the grade at City in time, and I think we can all respect that.

2.) 08 Aug 2017 14:40:20
Hi ED, have you heard anything about this? thanks in advance.

{Ed007's Note - City want a permanent deal and it looks as if Paddy's only wanting a loan deal.}

3.) 08 Aug 2017 15:21:17
Oh fur **** sake paddy bhoy. get your self back up here.

4.) 08 Aug 2017 17:00:43
rumours are he is scared of all the mad ferrets in manchester.



26 Jun 2017 20:34:38
Anton Rodgers travelling to Austria with Celtic. Fair enough, it's not unusual for players to train with managers they know. But the Mirror saying he's in the squad to play. That's got to be brown bananas surely?

1.) 26 Jun 2017 20:53:58
I wouldn't be too chuffed if he actually got game time.

2.) 26 Jun 2017 22:41:38
Surely just to get the lad some fitness, can't see him having a chance to play!

3.) 27 Jun 2017 06:38:49
Calm down boys, young Anton has been offered training facilities while he finds a new club.

4.) 27 Jun 2017 18:11:04
Who's this Jim?

5.) 27 Jun 2017 18:13:43
He's on trial.

6.) 27 Jun 2017 18:14:15
Got to be a favour to his son to gain match fitness. Nothing more, nothing less.

7.) 27 Jun 2017 20:22:43
Obviously. We are biscuit tin stuff, but not that desperate.



26 Jun 2017 20:16:27
Chris Willock reported to be joining Benfica. I suspected signing Hayes might have put that to bed anyway as a back up to Sinclair. BR saying he expects a signing in the coming days though. Any punts Bond?

1.) 26 Jun 2017 21:30:36
He say that today JimTim?

2.) 27 Jun 2017 18:18:21
I was being a dafty LM. What were presented as quotes were actually quotes from a bogus website, not BR himself.

I haven't seen any preseason bhoys, how have we been shaping up with Edouard and Dembele? Is it Edouard at LAM/ LWF like we seen a bit of last season. Or have the pair of them been more central with perhaps Edouard just behind? Or has it been a good old fashioned 2 up?

1.) 09 Jul 2018 13:04:50
From what I've seen of Moussa and Odsonne, they have looked really fit and sharp - scoring a few goals between them. As far as the rest and how we will set-up is hard to tell in a way, because of the absent players and the fact we have been utilizing the full squad in the two games I saw with Allen, Hayes, Henderson and Christie all doing not to badly when asked.
I was more concerned with the defense - going into tomorrow night - but Compper, Hendry and Ralston have done very well and KT was his usual dynamic self, with Simunovic and Miller also there if needed. The only two I haven't seen yet are Griff and Biton and not sure if either have featured in any pre-season games?
Haven't heard any more about comings and goings, but I'm sure we will add more quality when it's available.

2.) 09 Jul 2018 15:17:55
Thanks OaB. Really looking forward to seeing Edouard and Dembele playing together. If the pair stay fit I think we could be in for a goal fest. A multiple scoregasm.

3.) 09 Jul 2018 16:51:37
Dembele looks in the mood JimTim. Looks as sharp and hungry as he was before his injuries. Edouard also looks fit and hungry. He played wide left and slightly deeper than Dembele in the friendlies. Both look in good form.

4.) 09 Jul 2018 17:55:54
Thanks Ice Man. That's where I'd imagined Edouard to be playing given that Sinclair didn't start against Shamrock Rovers.



29 Apr 2018 16:30:49
First of all, congratulations to all the Bhoys and the management team. Another league in the bag, not far from a double treble. Great achievement and that's some day to live long in the memory today.

Second point, I'm going to reiterate it, MD's replacement is staring us right in the face. Sell him for 20/ 25+m, sign Edouarde for 7?. Hoopy days.

1.) 29 Apr 2018 16:47:53
On my way home from the game listening to Clyde they were saying that they need to get rid of all the dead wood, Gordon dalziell piped up that will be some bonfire priceless. oldkilly.



16 Apr 2018 16:31:13
Right bhoys where do we all stand on Tommy Rogic? I was of the opinion that it would probably be best to look for at least somebody to challenge, and in time, replace him, given his fitness record. However since he's came back into the side, and done what he's done. I'm torn. Would it be foolish to give him a bumper deal? Or is it a no brainer given his talent. Can we afford the luxury of having a player who might miss half a season, but is one of the first names on the sheet when he's fit.

1.) 16 Apr 2018 17:06:28
It's a no brainer me JT any big game player / big goalscorer stays IMO again if the boy was " problem free " he would easily command bigger wages than he does now elsewhere

I will say this for him every time he returns home he waxes lyrical about Celtic (Y)

2.) 16 Apr 2018 17:09:01
4 year deal please.

3.) 16 Apr 2018 18:12:47
I would love him to renew as he is an outstanding player. The only thing that he is missing is pace but I think his quickness of thought and close control compensate for that.

Let's hope we manage to tie him up on a new contract and we get at least another 2 seasons out of him.

4.) 16 Apr 2018 18:56:10
It was evident when he was missing that we lacked his class and our play was very predictable. However, he has always had a stamina and fitness issue - so it's not a new dilemma.
I think - even if he does miss a number of games - it's a real bonus to have someone who can create goals/ chances out of nothing, especially during the run-in, when others are tiring/ jaded and he is like a new signing with big goals in big games every time.
Tam Must Stay.

5.) 16 Apr 2018 20:57:18
JimTim: I asked a week or 2 ago, if you had the choice and could only pick 1 player. which one would you keep.

Rogic or Armstrong.

2 players of different qualities.

Who would you keep, as it looks like Armstrong will leave Keep Rogic.
Pick 1 = Armstrong.
Cpould we keep the 2 then yes please.

6.) 16 Apr 2018 22:32:53
That's a tough one Peter. If I could only pick one it would probably be Armstrong. Slightly different players as you say though. I think the replies here have made up my mind. Feck it, sign Rogic up. When he is fit he's a joy to watch and it costs serious money to get a player of his quality right now. As for Armstrong, I'm expecting to move on. The manner of his last extension suggests he sees the time as being soon.

7.) 18 Apr 2018 22:00:40
My opinion of Tom Rogic is the same this week as last week and other weeks .
At times on Sunday Rogic was excellent but at other times he let the game run past him . Most of us that like Rogic would love more Rogic.



11 Mar 2018 16:26:38
That wasn't just a victory for Celtic today. That was a victory for everything that is good and proper. The way in which they went about chopping us down and pulling us back at every chance, and the way in which they were almost encouraged to by the officials, is embarrassing. Quite how it was US that seen a red, I'll just leave it there actually. Let the football do the talking. To go there and win 12 v 10 shows why we're champs. And when they had the man advantage, and might actually have to play football, looked lost. Brown was immense. McGregor not far behind. Bain was an inspired selection. And Edouarde was a fantastic substitution by BR. Great goal for him by the way, he's got his critics on here, whereas I think he looks a cracking prospect and would gladly pay 7m. Moussa showed why he's actually worth the Dembele Dollars that weird wee Buffalo fella isn't. Three times I've watched Morelos play now. Not a very good finisher is he? Not a vintage performance, but a classic game and one which tastes pretty sweet. In the words of Ian Crocker, just keep your distance. 🖕.

1.) 11 Mar 2018 16:58:08
Spot on Jim. For his first start Bain was great as the pressure was immense. Broony was Broony. legend. Ntcham was excellent too. Edouarde. Pay the money and let the Bhoy start.

2.) 11 Mar 2018 22:04:51
Edouard's combination of power and panache is mouth watering VT. He can spray a pass too. As that boy starts to fine tune his game I think we'll have one hell of a player on our hands. Bain seemed incredibly calm in situations. That sort of figure will do the entire defence wonders.



10 Jan 2018 17:38:55
Hi Ed. Hope all is well and good luck for the next couple of weeks.

Do you have anything to say about us and Chancel Mbemba or Ryan Kent? Yes, no, maybe? WTF you on about JT?

{Ed007's Note - Newcastle are looking to recoup their £8 or 9 million for Mbemba and turned down a loan request from Anderlecht. I'm sure Liverpool want Kent to go to an English side.
Sorry I've not been around much the last few days and posts are lying waiting for a while, my wee aunty's funeral is tomorrow and I've been busy with that.}

1.) 11 Jan 2018 09:36:56
Sorry to hear that Ed
All the best to your family.

2.) 11 Jan 2018 01:46:28
You've got nothing to apologise for there mate, thanks for the reply. My condolences to you and the family, and God bless.

{Ed007's Note - Thanks, JT.}

3.) 11 Jan 2018 02:04:06
Sorry to hear that ed, hope it goes as smoothly as possible. May she rest in peace.

{Ed007's Note - Thank you, Steph.}

4.) 11 Jan 2018 18:57:31
Condolences sir.

{Ed007's Note - Thanks buddy.}

No idea Ed. A CM was not at the top of my list, but with Armstrong away we need cover. It's as simple as that. Armstrong 7-8m. McGinn, maybes 3m? That's a position sorted for several years, plus an extra 5m in the kitty to go towards the first XI maybe once the English window shuts? Good business.

{Ed007's Note - Exactly, JT. Armstrong's departure leaves us severely short in the CM department and McGinn's arrival will more than fill that void and unlike Armstrong McGinn wants to be here, in fact the lad's desperate to become a Celtic player.}

TTTS. He doesn't get in the first XI for me either but we need more than Ollie at CM. Plus, being a Celtic fan he should be happy being a squad player which itself is hard to come across. He'll definitely get game time domestically. And improve.

{Ed007's Note - Do the people girning about McGinn also think we shouldn't have signed Edouard because he won't get in the team before Dembele?

I'd be pleasantly surprised by this. Our best CB for me. But also if he still has an eye on a move away and the right club comes in, it would knock his price up.

Haven't watched it in a few years either. It's just a vehicle to advertise their channels and lure people into their betting site. They call themselves the home of sports news yet this week they won't have shown any footage of the world cup, or wimbledon, I'd imagine. Instead they'll be plugging something which they are screeining like womens rugby sevens or yacht racing. Then there's the 'sky sources' which will indicate that x player is in talks with y club, right before they show the odds and offer you their money for telling you the inside info? Pull the other one.

Ideally we sign somebody younger. If it was a choice between FF and CG I would say FF though. He's looked shot of confidence, ultimately affecting his decision making and focus but that can be repaired if his body is fit. On the subject of Gunn, he would have been on my shortlist. But that price, and indeed that of Edouard, show what it costs us now even to get youngsters in.
