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.

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.

What do we all make of next seasons hoops? I've been banging on about a collar for ages but the purist inside me doesn't really rate it. Can't say I've been impressed by New Balance at all if I'm honest.

1.) 01 May 2019 17:56:21
I preferred the one with the 5 starts (with just 1 star) Not a massive fan and again I feel the sponsor makes it look tacky.

2.) 01 May 2019 19:26:09
Surely the club should be demanding hoops on the sleeves. I will buy it as i always do but I won't be disappointed when the New Balance deal ends. Be great to go back to Umbro their new kits look very retro.

3.) 01 May 2019 19:53:48
Disappointed with the top for the 3rd year in a row. Agree with bravetart the fake one doing the rounds was a belter. New balance have been a massive disappointment.

4.) 01 May 2019 22:06:19
It could be worse. it could be Hummel that make them lol.

5.) 02 May 2019 11:53:37
I have seen plenty of clubs put several designs out for fans to vote on. It would be nice to see that for us.

6.) 03 May 2019 13:12:09
Just another way of splitting the fans into different groups and at the end of the for what reason . Supporters may or may not vote their true thoughts about which they wanted because they may not feel so strong about their tops .
Who should be given. a vote? Can the club be trusted to count the votes correctly or will they come result club wanted?



06 Apr 2019 20:11:29
Not a reaction, as I nailed my colours to the mast very early doors regarding NL taking over on an interim basis. But, of those supporting the idea of him being a permanent manager, and I ask this based on what I heard somebody asked today, a few month ago would you have swapped him for Rodgers? I know he's not long in the door, won't want to change too much at this sort of stage, but would people seriously think we would be the best we can be by appointing him going forward? I try to say this without being overdramatic as i've mocked posters the past for a few seasons for suggesting similar under BR. But under NL i'm really not sure 10IAR would happen 😯 Just me? The footy wasn't great but it's ****in painful now.

1.) 06 Apr 2019 20:56:52
Not going to start slagging Lennon off. My opinion though is we lacked the firepower before Xmas and we then brought in Burke and Weah to add much needed support. To go back and play the players that were struggling to score before Xmas and expect different is either plain stupid or very arrogant. No harm to NL intended as he has the club at heart.

2.) 06 Apr 2019 21:30:17
I'm trying not to slag him of Kwaj. Club legend, aye. Man to take us forward, no. Fair point about the two forwards but even under BR I didn't think Burke was a striker. Weah I'm undecided on. He obviously can make an impact but would need to see more of his contribution over 90min.

3.) 06 Apr 2019 21:50:09
We played our best this season with a fully fit trio in midfield, McGregor, Christie and Rogic. We had pace and plenty of intelligent movement both on and off the ball.
Lennon today was looking to get these guys much needed game time along with Benkovic and Tierney. I am happy with how things went today and I can see us getting better with these guys in the team.
Its not the end of the world not winning today, it means there is every chance we will win the league at paradise now in front of a full house. We could possibly have our day to celebrate, something the scottish league was trying to take away from us, with sevco playing before us after the split, which ment we could have won the league without actually playing.

4.) 06 Apr 2019 22:41:12
I hate BR as much as the next fan but would be have waited till the 85 min to bring on more firepower at home to Livingston. No he would have changed the set up at about 60mins but he would have tinkered with the team to get the opening goal. But NL stays the same till 85 min wtf.

5.) 06 Apr 2019 23:10:27
I have noticed a couple of fans are unhappy about the subs lenny made today.
After 60 minutes he takes off Benkovic who is just back from injury and brings on Hayes to get better cross balls into the box. It also gave us a better balance due to Ajar switching from left to right side of defence, with KT on left and Jozo in the middle of only 3 at the back.
After 70 minutes he takes off Rogic who again done better than last week and will get better, he was replaced with Weah which is a positive switch.
Then after 83 minutes he takes off Christie who again played well and will get sharper and replaces him with Burke who nearly and should have got the winner.
I don't see what he could have done differently, it was just one of those days and I am just happy there was not a forced sub for a change due to injury. Keep The Faith.

6.) 06 Apr 2019 23:48:33
He could have put on a guy that's scored 17 and made 6 this season and scored over 60 in less than 3 season.
But left a proven goal scorer on the bench when we are chasing a goal.

7.) 07 Apr 2019 00:01:42
Agree Leon, the games we don't win domestically these days we don't need to win. Over the last 3 seasons we have won EVERY must win game and I'm fully confident that will continue next Sunday, which will put us one game away from a famous Rebel Treble.

8.) 07 Apr 2019 01:07:34
We basically played with a 3 at the back and 6 in midfield at home to Livingston and then constantly cross balls to 1 man being marked with 3 defenders!
I have said over and over again, why play 1 up front at home against teams in the bottom 6.
We have been poor this season but since Lennon has can in we have been Chronic and before Everyone starts shouting, I know we are unbeaten and miraculously we are still going for the treble but Lennon is not the way forward.

9.) 08 Apr 2019 20:48:40
Jimtim wasnt having a go at you as your entitled to your opinion and I agree with you about NL. I was merely stating that I was not.



27 Feb 2019 11:05:05
Is it just me that thinks we need more than a new manager in the summer now? Perfect time to shake the infrastructure up a bit and get in a DoF/ Technical Director? A lot of people seem frustrated that we either need to spend more, or spend what we do more wisely. Personally I think it's a bit of both. To simplify things - at some point, it's PL who signs the cheque (or not) and therefore it's his mind that determines the value of potential targets. Do we need somebody with a footballing brain to bridge the gap between finances and football?

1.) 27 Feb 2019 11:33:59
Seems they were getting set to make John Kennedy the DOF.

2.) 27 Feb 2019 11:50:02
First I've heard Kev. Was this before BR's departure?

3.) 27 Feb 2019 13:57:30
Just read about it today jim. Seems BR okd it.



01 Feb 2019 11:41:21
I thought I'd give a wee rating of our new transfers for people to agree, disagree, comment on or tear apart.

BAYO - First and foremost he can hopefully take some of the pressure of young Edouard, and perhaps even play with him in the way we seen with Dembele. For a young lad he demonstrated a great goal record at any level in the season gone in Slovakia. Hopefully it wasn't just a purple patch and he can step up for us. Only seen his goals reel on youtube and whilst a lot of them look like they relied on service, never underestimate a penalty box goalscorer and I'm excited to see him properly and what else he has in his locker.

WEAH - A highly rated youngster who will, from what I've seen so far add some much needed freshness and quality to the attack. I'm assuming we have next to no chance of signing him permanently so that takes a bit of the shine off but nonetheless should be an enjoyable player to watch.

BURKE - Pretty much the same as above really but I'd say with a slightly better, next to next to no chance, of a permanent deal.

TOLJAN - Well after all the talk of a RB we finally got one over the line at the last. Thank funk for that. Imagine the scenes if we hadn't. He's got pedigree. Represented Germany at various youth levels an looked a right prospect at Hoffenheim. Hence the move to Dortmund. Didn't quite work out for him there but what does it go? One swallow doth not a summer make? Basically, one poor season doesn't make him a poor player. Get him back on track and we could have a player on our hands. Conflicting reports about whether we have a permanent deal already negotiated but there's time to worry about that.

SHVED - not going to bother going into how a manager and recruitment team work. But this is actually the signing I'm most excited about. Let's wait until the summer thpugh and see if we get a better view of him in preseason.

OVERALL - pretty happy. Always think we could have done a bit more but sadly I think a lot of poor signings from previous windows have bloated our squad and wage bill. Not to mention january is always more difficult to get players in, never mind come to Scotland. Castagne would have been a quality signing by the way. Finally, well done Ed and Rich T for keeping the pages ticking over. Now let's get back to the football, crack on with a Treble Treble and dare to dream in Europe. COYBIG.

1.) 01 Feb 2019 11:57:52
Jim av read this morn there is an option to buy with the young german.

2.) 01 Feb 2019 12:44:16
Agree Jim, particularly with shaved.

3.) 01 Feb 2019 13:26:32
Nice one Mally 👍.

YNB, only youtube admittedly but he looks a cracking player.

4.) 02 Feb 2019 01:12:58
The good thing is that at this stage at least we are all very happy with 5 of our signings . I think we really don't have a notion about the two Americans, they seem to be more long shots, but I might be surprised and next year we may be all excited about them.



16 Jan 2019 15:51:01
Ed007. Do you have any info on James McCarthy mate? Understandable if you can't/ don't want to given the personal attachment. Or is it just groundhog day with the column filler?

{Ed007's Note -If Ntcham pushes for a move then the Club will step up their pursuit of McCarthy.}

1.) 16 Jan 2019 19:41:47
Cheers Ed 👍.

{Ed007's Note - 👍

2.) 16 Jan 2019 19:45:08
If Ntcham did push for the move, is it really a position we would need to bring another player in for? CM has been sublime in that position and with Christie and rogic, as well as the new signings being able to slot in further forward, surely we could use the money to invest in a new cb? Possibly benkovic? Or another cb proven at a decent level? What are your thoughts Ed?

{Ed007's Note - I'm not getting into another McCarthy debate mate, there's nothing I can say that I haven't said during every previous window for years.}

3.) 16 Jan 2019 20:31:08
I was really impressed with Ntcham last season and thought he 'had the lot' as far as midfield players go; but he has really disappointed this season - and I know the Dembele situation was a catalyst - but his attitude and performances have been lacking.
It's a shame because he could have been a star here, but like so many seems to see us as a stepping stone to bigger and brighter?
However, few actually fulfill their ambitions and end up journeymen.
I would worry about McCarthy's injury problems if he was a target and would be happier if we looked at Scandinavia or Europe as we have faced a few talented players in Europe recently and the price/ wages might be well within our budget.

Teflon, I have to admit I was a bit surprised to read on here that the squad had went 'to Dublin on a piss up'. Dublin is a great piss up I must say. But, and without knowing what sort of night it was or the restrictions on the players, it seemed like the wrong thing to do for me. A couple bevvies back at the club sure. But if its true they were on the lash over there and didn't train until thursday then that's wrong. The league wasn't over. Dead rubber or not playing Rangers is a big game. And we should have wanted as much momentum as possible going towards a cup final for a treble. Quite simply our season was far from over.

This would be good Ryan.

Not sure how much bearing our manager would have on a decision like that though?

Right now though Ed is either nursing a semi or nursing a headache.

Well that's it Mally. West Ham sacked Bilic the start of november as well which doesn't face a full picture. Not comparing the two managers but about that time this season Rafa was in the relegation zone but there's plenty fans would love tp see him.

True that. He also got them into europe and broke records for West Ham. Considering it's West Ham, he did pretty well.

I only said out of those four Kev lol. He did pretty well with West Ham apart from that and Croatia I wouldn't have a clue. He might get us some of the good young talent out of Croatia. I Can't say I'd be over the moon though, no.

Diemers - No idea
Mousset - Tidy enough player but for the reported 10m? No thanks.
O'Shea - No idea
Harper - No thanks
Tomori - Looks a good young CB
Darcy - No idea
Hermann - No idea
Wamangituka - No idea + I think NL said that wasn't the player he was watching.

You missed Alberth Elis off that list Ken mate. We're looking at him according to Izzy 🤔.

Overall it doesn't really scream quality over quantity still does it. Could be some decent projects in there but that's about it.

It's important to remember Dembele was up against another 16 year old in Hickey. Probably one of the reasons he was given his chance second half. We know he's more than capable of beating players his own age but up against first team players let's not put too much pressure on the young lad just yet.
