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.

Perfect opportunity for Mulumbu today? Not sure where he's at fitness wis but being in the squad he should be there. We know he's better than anything Kilmarnock have in their midfield and I could see him bossing it if picked. We haven't quite got the results the last few meetings with them but they don't quite look the same without Mulumbu to be totally honest. Elsewhere, I wasn't for the calls to start Griff over Eddy against Rosenborg. But back to domestic duty I think I would today, he'll be chomping at the bit and we'll also need to rotate the two quite wisely given that we're light in numbers up top. No need to rush Ajer back so Benkovic to partner Boyata again. I don't normally like to see wholesale changes but I'd actually get Sinclair and Johnston in the side today.






1.) 23 Sep 2018 11:07:47
Am thinking similar Jim although maybe gamboa for lustig on that surface.

2.) 23 Sep 2018 12:30:33
I wasn't far off Mally.



02 Sep 2018 16:08:13
A very good performance and the scoreline flattered them. Hit the woodwork three times and they should have been a man down fairly early. It was all us. A much needed shot in the arm. Not just for our team, but the muppets amongst our own support who actually consider them a threat. McGregor, Tierney, Ntcham and Boyata were the star performers for us today. We still lack that wee bit cutting edge but at least that should be a few persons back in their box for a while. Know your place.

1.) 02 Sep 2018 17:45:11
Four times jimmy bhoy 😉.

2.) 02 Sep 2018 18:27:46
Must have missed one vinnie whilst hitting the bar myself :-D.



20 Aug 2018 12:08:47
So BR being at Citeh seems to have gotten the media's attention. He might hust have been watching a game of football/ picking up tips. However I don't think it would be a surprise if he was talking to Pep or club officials or indeed if we signed another player (s) from them. So who would people like to see? I think Foden would make the most sense to fill that John McGinn shaped gap. Would love Diaz too.

1.) 20 Aug 2018 12:31:42
I think it will be Douglas the Brazilian City can't get a work permit for him. I think he will be coming on loan. Just my opinion no facts or anything.

2.) 20 Aug 2018 12:36:18
I’d take an injured De Bruyne ha ha.

3.) 20 Aug 2018 13:40:46
Wouldn't we struggle to get a work permit for Douglas as well?

4.) 20 Aug 2018 13:49:20
Does he have a Scottish granny.

5.) 20 Aug 2018 13:51:42
Kev Rangers got work permits for the dross they brought in last year.

6.) 20 Aug 2018 15:00:39
I think it's easier here to get a work permit mate.

7.) 20 Aug 2018 17:14:51
Really? I'd have thought it was same all over UK.
Well could happen then.

8.) 20 Aug 2018 19:41:00
How is it easier here? Surely a work permit is a uk issue not a football issue?

9.) 20 Aug 2018 22:24:09
Adarabioyo, Diaz, Foden or particularly Garcia but those are wishful thinking and I think Garcia has gone out on loan already.



09 Aug 2018 05:32:52
I thought last nights game was so frustrating. It was one of those where they were there for the taking too, they were unfortunate to go down to 10 for me - not much in that second yellow. I thought our pressing and turnover of possession was excellent, which was what made the lack of ideas up top even worse. When we're winning the ball back so quickly and continuously, there didn't seem like anybody was willing to play the risky incisive pass or take a step and get a shot away. Far too much stroking the ball left to right and quite predictable. Forrest, Rogic and Edouard were poor. Cal Mac the only player who looked like creating anything. Tierney was excellent getting into dangerous positions but too many crosses finding yellow jerseys. That out the way, we look the better side, I just hope we can go away there, ignore the atmosphere and show it.

1.) 09 Aug 2018 06:56:37
I thought they got their tactics spot on. Forcing us to go wide knowing we don't have much of a presense up front to get on the end the crosses. We missed Moussa.

2.) 09 Aug 2018 07:43:18
Fair and good observation LM. I think Edouard has more to his game than Dembele. However, I'll never underestimate strikers like Dembele who come alive in the box. Which is why, when fit, they'll both play. Quite obviously, and naturally, they were much more compact with 10. I doubt that will quite be the case over there and am confident we can score given we need to.



09 Jul 2018 11:09:15
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.

Well I wouldn't pay attention to what that website value players at for a start but hey ho. Ever heard of Financial Fair Play? I'd agree with the notion we could spend a bit more. Although I think the key is spending what we have done in better ways. But the idea that "Dermot Desmond CAN just chuck hundreds of millions into the side" is just utter garbage sorry. To even compare us to Man City or PSG, well I won't even go into that. Just look up FFP.

GHB although I've no idea where you've plucked those numbers from as the side that played us last night cost no where near that much, it's obvious the gulf in finances is making it harder for us to compete in Europe. DD can't just chuck hundreds of millions into the side.

Timalloy i don't doubt you. But, Lustig although lovable is done at RB; Tierney is class; Brown won't last forever but quitting Scotland will enhance his club career;the board love bank sheets more than football. It's great of you to share info but most on here have already said this stuff. Was there anything more exclusive in the unedited post?

If BR feels like he isn't being backed at Celtic, Newcastle would be even worse. Only, they aren't even a top side in their league. Villa was more realistic and I laughed that one off. I think we'll all just have to get used to BR being linked with every single English job.

I'm not sure it's mouths he has issues with feeling to be honest.

I think he escapes criticism week in week out because he blows hot and cold. He's either great or quite poor really for me. Excusable for a young player but not desirable, no. He has had good games in Europe but like a lot of the side he can deliver poor performances.

23 Oct 2018 16:54:12
I hope so too. I think we'll need to get him in and around the first team as soon as he's old enough though as sadly, he can get career development elsewhere playing with reserves.

Things are starting to come together in the opponent's half. I'll not get carried away with either of them just yet but Forrest and Rogic are delivering at the moment. Nice to see Edouard in the goals I've felt he's had a bit of stick lately, not so much on here thankfully.
