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.



20 Jun 2017 11:13:19
A few sources in the Netherlands linking us with Joshua Brenet. A very good RB who can also play LB if needed. I don't think we're in immediate need of a RB but I'd have Brenet in over Gamboa (who is set to miss the start of the season? ) and in time I wouldn't be surprised to see him overtake Lustig due to his pace and the general longevity of the situation. Heard anything on this one Ed?

{Ed007's Note - No.}

1.) 20 Jun 2017 12:53:12
Dutch international and fits into our normal signing criteria age-wise. Seems a decent player and I don't think Gamboa's really convinced.



24 May 2017 13:42:05
A few people down here have already asked me about Jozo as rumours of him being looked at by Newcastle are going about. Personally I can't see them matching what we would want.

1.) 25 May 2017 00:21:22
What would we want? 5-7m?

{Ed007's Note - Mike Ashley would give us more than that if Dermot Desmond 'asked' him ;)

2.) 25 May 2017 01:10:23
You can't be talking about the same guy that by Christmas will be spun and rebranded by the DR as the mkII (3,4?loose count =last chance) saviour of all orc kind?

{Ed007's Note - Mike Ashley has no intention of saving TRIFC, hanging out at Sandy Lane with Dermot would become awkward to say the least.}

3.) 25 May 2017 09:00:10
They paid that sort of price for Hanley (! ) rglen, they could jog on.

4.) 25 May 2017 11:26:14
All Hail the Lions HH . ED do u know if MD will b in squad for Saturday?

{Ed007's Note - It's not been decided yet mate but it looks like he'll play some part in the game - I reckon he'll start on the bench.}

5.) 25 May 2017 11:33:47
Add a 2 in front of that rglen and maybe we're in the right sort of range. Jozo will become better than most PL centre backs I gaurantee it. He's got a lot of potential. We do not need to sell, if the player wants to go, then that's when we sell. That's what Rodgers said himself and I'd imagine that applies across the board as Lawell will wish to see the 1st of September come quickly as possible to limit our spending.

6.) 25 May 2017 12:13:13
That sounds positive just seeing him on the bench will scare teams cheers ED on and what's this about the Liverpool Echo saying we have been knocked back for the boy Wilson heard anything ED?

{Ed007's Note - I can only see Wilson being an alternative to Roberts but I don't know of any actual bid going in. Liverpool will decide on Wilson's future over the summer.}

7.) 25 May 2017 17:37:36
Is Wilson any good in comparison to paddy?

8.) 26 May 2017 13:07:05
KenLikeEh- I'd settle for a 1 in front but if it's epl then why not:) . If the vvd transfer goes through it will really help our selling power and I'd be more than happy to cut out the middleman epl clubs for any future departures. We have been that good this season going forward and in midfield our cbs haven't had as much pressure on them. He still manged the tackle of the season right enough👏.

KT goal of the season right there. Big Kirk Clubfoot's reaction was a belter.



05 Aug 2017 14:58:31
It's great to get back to normal. A good performance and it's great to have Griff back. Laffatme was first in line to eat his words and bhoy has his diving went down hill. Top of the league already, we shall not be moved.



01 Aug 2017 15:33:42
Davies saying Griff is fit 😆. What team would people go for tomorrow? For me,



Probably a sort of a 4321 shape to cover their wide players with the energy of McGregor and Armstrong.

1.) 01 Aug 2017 15:52:15
Dont think thatll be to faraway JT he may find a place for forrest tho. he usually does . although i think wee hayes is more direct and more of a goal threat.

2.) 01 Aug 2017 17:10:16
i think it'll be.

3.) 01 Aug 2017 17:47:58
Pretty much the same as u JJPD! But I'd have Hayes over Forrest! Really hope we can nick a wee early goal! Surely can't play as Shoite as we did last week!

4.) 01 Aug 2017 19:27:12
I wouldn't be surprised if Griffiths starts on the bench, I think Rodgers might try to get the job done without him and bring him on if we are in trouble.
It's difficult to know what to expect tomorrow, when you know very little about these teams it's hard to know if last week they played out of their skins, if they are a really good side, or if we were just awful on the night.
We should remember though, that they only beat Dundalk in extra time in the last round, so we really shouldn't have anything to fear, if we could score early on, I think they would have a mountain to climb.

5.) 01 Aug 2017 19:43:20
Sensible words Gerry. I'd start LG on the bench. If we need him 2nd half he's there.



26 Jul 2017 21:54:42
Well that could make for a nervous game over in Trondheim. Still confident though we just need to sort the dynamics out. That just didn't work at all.

{Ed007's Note - The team looked disjointed, JT. I don't think we played too badly but we done nothing in the final 3rd. I still think we'll go through too.}

1.) 26 Jul 2017 22:07:04
Guys I really hope we do this but just feel there was no drive in the team to make it happen no one wanted it till Hayes came on feeling a bit ****ed after that hh.

{Ed007's Note - One goal over there and they need 2, I'm confident we'll score if we have a striker on the park.}

2.) 26 Jul 2017 22:25:30
Griffiths is injured too, so we probably won't have a striker on the park. Surely Ciftci should have been registered. At least he know's how to play the position.

{Ed007's Note - I've just seen LG's a doubt but even at that, if we can't get a scoring draw against a team no better than the SPFL we don't deserve to be in the CL and there will serious questions asked AGAIN about the board backing the manager. We're streets ahead of any domestic competition but we need to be making inroads in Europe, the board have dropped the ball in the past and hopefully their gamble pays off.}

3.) 26 Jul 2017 22:25:53
I think having LG back will make all the difference. He doesn't just have the natural instinct and movement, but Rogic and Sinclair should be a lot more comfortable in their roles too. Hayes has to start being on the team sheet ahead of Forrest.

4.) 26 Jul 2017 22:39:19
Ano bond but it's just galling that we can't put in a performance never mind s goal bud hope we get there but just seen that Griff could b injured omfg it's like you can see it happening but can't believe it 😥😥😥 Mon the hoops need a talking cry here am still hiding under the couch 😂😂😂😂hh.

{Ed007's Note - Imagine this had all happened under RD?}

5.) 26 Jul 2017 22:50:47
ED can we sign a striker for next week?

{Ed007's Note - No.}

6.) 26 Jul 2017 22:52:40
We were static tonight. It felt like a friendly. No charging runs from mf. The subs should of been made at half time. Rodgers looked a bit edgey 70mis on. Don't know what he said to big tam at ft but he didn't like it.
The bad part done above.
We controlled the game and with a bit of magic we will go through. If grif is fit in he goes but 2 of the mf need punted for the away leg. The hair and the forrest need cleared for reasons both of ability and concentration.

7.) 26 Jul 2017 23:15:22
OMG bond imagine that happening under RD. no thanks bro thought the dire days were behind us onwards and upwards troops hail hail the Celts are here 😊😊😊.

8.) 27 Jul 2017 04:57:10
I know some of the worshippers, after that display, are already getting nostalgic for Ronnie's days, when we could have had Ronnie playing players out of position every week, just so he could do his squad rotation, but anyway that was the good old days, last night I think Brendan went wrong by not keeping the team and formation the same, that had been playing well, and just promoting one of the young strikers from the development team, I mean what's the worst that could have went wrong?, he made the same mistake that England and Man U, used to make when always playing Beckham, or Rooney, i. e. of playing your best players but not playing your best team, if you follow my drift, .



06 Jul 2017 11:11:20
Just seen Hachim Mastour has become a free agent. I remember this kid being dubbed the next Messi etc. Now there's huge alarm bells as to why Milan have let him go, and why he didn't make an impact at Zwolle, but this kid can do anything with the ball at his feet, it would seem he just needs to learn how to play the game. At just 19, surely he's got to be worth getting over for talks or possibly even a trial, even if it means sticking him in the development for a bit and developing the tactical side of his game.

1.) 06 Jul 2017 11:30:14
There must be a reason "the next Messi" has been given the boot. If he was worth nurturing I'm sure Milan would have.

2.) 06 Jul 2017 13:44:09
Well that would be my main concern Kev. He came to the end of a contract though, and perhaps it was purely contractual differences between the player and club, perhaps he wants first team football, perhaps Milan just prefer other youngsters they have in his position, or perhaps he might have an awful attitude and whilst he can pull off an 'elastico' he can't pick the right pass. I don't know. I suppose you could ask why we would go for a player released by Ipswich, but not from Milan? If I had my fantasy manager cap on I'd be making some calls to people at Milan to ask some questions and possibly get him over for a look. It'll never happen though, stupid post sorry 😂.

3.) 06 Jul 2017 18:47:51
Id consider taking him on a contract thst is similar to our academy players. If he accepted that there may be a bit of hunger in him. Then id lile to think rodgers will be sble to improve him. Who knows. Could well be a bargin for the right club and manager. The same as any yoing player.

Oooft Daryl, stepping on 007's toes there 😃😉. Would have went with Ajer myself but that side should still be enough at CP. Bet of the day: Armstrong to come on and score.

Nice to see some sensible posters acknowledging the work and foundations laid by RD. Rodger's will have found it a heck of a lot easier taking over from RD. Said when RD was here, that the more I warmed to what he was doing, the more I seen him as a key figure in the background and perhaps not a manager (the fact he wasn't really given the chance to be a proper manager is something else) but more to do with youth development. I hope we've kept his number.

What about last season's CL money though, that we 'don't budget ourselves on'? Rodgers expressed frustration in January as well. Even last summer, I thought we could have done a bit more. We really never seem to be the best we could be.

4231/ 4411


Lustig Ajer Jozo Tierney

Btien Ntcham

Forrest Rogic Hayes


Keep half an eye on them in the wide areas, but tonight should be about us imposing ourselves and that side should be good enough.

I'd agree the first half we were poor and sloppy and the score flattered us. Second half much better. Ntcham was great, Bitton after a shaky start stepped right into that game, KT as ever was brill, and hopefully that's Sinclair on a game now he was excellent second half. I think the cream rose in the end and to be honest they didn't really trouble us. We were clinical (5 goals with 3 on target! ) and at CL level it's about being clinical. Well done bhoys.

I'm confident we'll do the business over two legs. I think that alone speaks volumes about where we've come from. I remember the days of O'Neil where I wouldn't even bat an eye at the CL qualifying opponents. I feel pretty close to that now.

Hail Hail to that Ed, it could be a blessing in disguise (remember people wanting us to sign a LB before KT got his chance. It could be even be the plan to use the plethora of promising young players we have, something we've harped on for long enough. That said, one or two bits of proven quality wouldn't have been too much to ask would it. Time yet I suppose. 😧.

Same p*sh different window really. Thankfully there are a lot of players already here that have more to come.

It's down to Rodgers and the player and the club really. I can only hope that we will just offer him what he wants. They'll know together when he wants to leave. If it's now, or next season, then sell him now. If he wants a two year extension then I'm confident he would give his all for that duration. And I think we can all live with players having their own ambitions. Give him the two year extension, get two seasons out of him, and sell him with a year left (providing acceptable bids don't come in before that) . He seems like a sensible chap, if he's after a move in the down the line, he'll know the best way to do that will by to continue trying to improve and by performing well.
