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👏.



07 Apr 2017 13:08:08
Press conference rescheduled today for a 'major' announcement. Any guesses?

1.) 07 Apr 2017 13:18:48
@JimTim gossip I heard was either planning permission granted for their hotel complex or.
Patrick Roberts signing on a 4 year deal.

2.) 07 Apr 2017 13:28:50
Maybe both!

3.) 07 Apr 2017 13:55:45
Could be the hotel Timbo, good shout.

4.) 07 Apr 2017 13:53:55
Will be hotel PR thing could have been done at Lennox town.

5.) 07 Apr 2017 14:02:24
Hope it's paddy Roberts staying!

6.) 07 Apr 2017 14:32:15
Is it not brendan signing a longer contract.

7.) 07 Apr 2017 14:52:14
Just read it could be new contract for gaffer.
Don't know how true that is though.

8.) 07 Apr 2017 14:57:01
its footage of brown actually controlling the ball lol. (a wee post for the panty wetters lol. )

9.) 07 Apr 2017 14:59:30
new deal for rodgers.



21 Feb 2017 15:07:09
Craig Burley he seems to be the man in the know, claiming Dembele is off to Chelsea in the summer. Any word on this 007/ 002?

{Ed002's Note - There is no agreement that makes anything certain. Manchester United and Bayern Munich have both been aware of Moussa Dembele since his time at PSG and were both interested in signing him when he opted for Fulham as a 16 year old. Newcastle, Lille, Juventus, Napoli, Liverpool, Wolfsburg, Marseille, Everton and Spurs had also been looking at Dembele since the start of last season before he opted to move to Celtic for the playing time. Recent glances from Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Monaco have led Celtic to put an unrealistic price on the player that could block any move in the short term - although Chelsea may well seek to get an early agreement for a summer transfer with a cash deal - potentially augmented by a player.}

1.) 21 Feb 2017 20:54:59
Much appreciated. I'd take your word over his. But, is "no agreement that makes anything certain" the same as no agreement at all?

{Ed002's Note - There is no agreement at all Jim.}

2.) 21 Feb 2017 21:33:15
Thanks again.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}



25 Jan 2017 07:23:06
Liverpool reportedly making contact about Onyekuru 😕

1.) 25 Jan 2017 12:33:18
As quoted by his agent! Think the games have begun with this kids representatives! Clubs Chief exec has also stated he is to good to move to Scotland and should go to Germany!

2.) 25 Jan 2017 13:43:09
To good he's playing with an unheard of Belgian team, think they're trying to drive the price up better to leave this one alone me thinks

David Healy's Linfield 🙈 or La Fiorita of San Marino in the CL qualifiers.

1.) 19 Jun 2017 11:45:14
I hope the San Marino lads can do us a favour and keep us away from the rabble.

2.) 19 Jun 2017 11:50:27
Knew we'd get them another hunskelping me thinks bhoys.

3.) 19 Jun 2017 11:55:33
Hahaha, the Ulster Sevco are in for a thumping if they get through. ! lol HH.

4.) 19 Jun 2017 11:55:46
Not sure if I'd rather skelp them or dodge them.

5.) 19 Jun 2017 12:02:14
Easy tie whoever we get, but really could be doing without going to play that mob over there at that time of year! 😡😡😡 the sevconian nut jobs will be planning chaos as we speak!

6.) 19 Jun 2017 12:06:08
Went on and checked the San Marino mobs record in Europe! In the 5 ties they've played they've won none scored 1 goal and conceded 35! 🙈🙈🙈🇮🇪😂😂😂😂 its actually embarrassing and a disgrace we're getting made to play these teams!

7.) 19 Jun 2017 12:32:52
That's still a better European record than Sevco! 😂😂.

8.) 19 Jun 2017 13:08:39
Good point rab 😱😱😂😂😂.

9.) 19 Jun 2017 13:08:39
Good point rab 😱😱😂😂😂.



02 Jun 2017 09:07:08
Are we actually signing Hayes? Seems to be gathering some momentum. If we're not signing Roberts then I'd have Hayes on that right side over Forrest but I have to say I was hoping for better. He'll run amok for us domestically, but Europe? I have my doubts, and was expecting much more pedigree, just hope he proves me wrong.

1.) 02 Jun 2017 09:22:02
Yes - very underwhelming.

2.) 02 Jun 2017 09:26:07
Not impressed if true, this is the level of player Rangers are signing. Looks like we are still well and truely working out of the biscuit tin!

3.) 02 Jun 2017 09:30:03
I'm not interested one bit in signing half decent domestic players. If there not European quality then we shouldn't be interested. We already dominate domestically so it's time to have a bash at improving in Europe now and Hayes won't do that. HH.

4.) 02 Jun 2017 10:09:58
Paddy to Hayes. CL player? LC more like.

5.) 02 Jun 2017 10:22:17
It's looking more and more likely that Hayes is coming to the club so like any other new signing should be welcomed. I not a fan of him but he does show good pace and can find the goal from distance, two qualities that Celtic benefit from. A good thing as far as Celtic are concerned is Hayes will be over the moon to get a move to us and will be keen to impress. He will also be prepared to fight for a place in the team and wait his turn without spitting the dummy.
As long as we are not shelling out loads of cash for him it could work out OK for all.

6.) 02 Jun 2017 11:21:57
Still not convinced its true tbh, but if we get him for say 500k and GMS, and he performs as well as he did for aberdeen could be a decent squad player, in reality we need 2 wingers, cover for sinclair and replacement for paddy, think hayes would be cover for sinclair, not the champs league quality were looking for because sinclair has the LW spot.

7.) 02 Jun 2017 11:25:21
Altough no where near the level of paddy i think brendan sees this as a bit of cover. we're losing efe, cifti, allan, gms, probably oconnell, and a few more so he'll provide cover in the wide areas. and still think if paddy doesn't sign we'll try and get another wide player with a bit of class in brendan we trust.

8.) 02 Jun 2017 11:58:05
Wouldn't be my choice but I'll trust Brendan to do what he thinks rite, and I'll support the lad if does come in! But like Andy said, it's very underwhelming! Hope it's not a sign of what's to come, because this level of player won't get us anywhere in Europe!

9.) 02 Jun 2017 11:59:40
He'll be a replacement for GMS, not Roberts. I'm sure we'll still be in the market for another winger.

10.) 02 Jun 2017 12:11:33
It'll be to provide cover domestically he's fine banged a few crackers past us this season.

11.) 02 Jun 2017 12:44:11
I really hope it is just for domestic cover. I'll judge the window properly when it's shut of course. Just wasn't the first name I was hoping for.

12.) 02 Jun 2017 13:18:05
All paper talk surely so when he goes to wolves or some other team they can spout all there usual posh about sevco signing all these superstars and we got snubbed.

13.) 02 Jun 2017 17:30:51
and why not sign the boy?
as far as i see rodgers coaching team improved every single player this season so why can they not get a bit extra out off hayes? if its age thing that's just crap . the boy has ability id go as far to say he's the only player apart from mcginn that caused us any trouble in games against them this season, so if the monies right then give the boy a chance i say.



26 May 2017 13:40:10
Quick question Ed please. Dembele being in Chelsea on deadline day in January. Was the reason him being there actually for a medical? Was it BS and he was talking to Chelsea FC?
Or was it both?

{Ed007's Note - I don't know if he was there on deadline day but Dembele and his agent held talks with Chelsea throughout January. The club's had agreed a fee (I don't know how much but £25-30 million was the rumoured amount) but Dembele wanted guarantees about playing time as he has no intention of moving somewhere to sit on the bench and until a club offers those guarantees he's more than happy to stay at Celtic. Further talks with Chelsea are planned in the coming weeks and Ed002 is on red alert to keep me up to date on the situation.}

1.) 26 May 2017 16:03:14
JimTim: from what I remember he was at a Harley St Docs in Chelsea in Jan on deadline day was the story, and he flew back to CP later that night. It could have been all smoke and mirrors.

2.) 26 May 2017 16:38:01
Was looking over the domestic results and apart from a couple of Sevco games - where big Moussa's goals were decisive - we had Sinclair, Griffiths, Armstrong and others contributing plenty goals in vast majority of the season.
I know his presence and ability made a huge difference in games, but if we do get a decent fee, I would love to see it going towards keeping Roberts, Armstrong and KT etc and bringing in a couple of CL quality additions.
I would hope that since the Chelsea approach, BR would have plenty time to identify another striker in that mould?

3.) 26 May 2017 17:41:28
Strikers like Dembelle, are as scarce as hens teeth, the selling price should be over forty million.

4.) 26 May 2017 19:39:14
Thanks Ed. Be sure to keep us posted.

That's the story I was referring to Peter. Just popped into my head today for some reason and I wondered if it might have been, as you say, smoke and mirrors.

OAB, whilst it's great to see all the attackers chipping in, I will never underestimate the importance of a penalty box player, an outlet and focal point. Like you say, it's the physical presence he has, combined with good tekkas, that seen him pushed to first choice. It's that mould of player we'll need to find if he does go.

{Ed007's Note - Will do, JT.}

Having a bit of a moment here bhoys, can we win the league on sunday if Aberdeen don't win on friday?

1.) 28 Mar 2017 13:54:21
I don't think the Aberdeen results matter. According to sly sports after the Scotland game we will win the league if we win on Sunday.

2.) 28 Mar 2017 14:16:41
We can win the league without kicking a ball if Dundee beat Aberdeen.

3.) 28 Mar 2017 15:03:25
Thanks lads. Got to organise a bit of a get together for a mate on sunday and I'm not missing that one. Pub it is!

4.) 28 Mar 2017 17:51:49
i've a funny feeling we'll win it on friday night with dundee beating aberdeen, i'd rather aberdeen won to keep well ahead of sevco as we can win it for ourselves by beating the jambos at tynecastle on sunday.

5.) 28 Mar 2017 17:55:25
Does anybody want dundee to win?, takes a bit of the shine off it for me when that happens, would prefer to win it against hearts myself.

6.) 28 Mar 2017 21:47:43
Bhoys got a bad feeling about Tyncastle on Sunday? No idea why just feels tricky for some reason. Probably go and win 7-1 now😂.

Can't really comment on the lad but I remember reading in january how highly regarded he was in France. Looks really good in the challenge as well as having the pace and power from the clips I've seen and if he's being compared by the Lens fans to their former player Varane then I really hope this materialises.

Could well be worth picking up, as said, as an understudy to SS. Quite highly regarded from what I read when I first seen this link, obviously not by Arsenal but hey ho, it could be their loss.

We're only being linked with LBs because according to some rags we're "struggling to keep hold of Tierney".

{Ed007's Note - And even though we triggered another years option on Izaguirre's contract the Club want to extend that to a 3 year deal.}

We'll worry about Ross County's and Kilmarnock's World Cup players if we ever get to that stage. As for the CL, there's ways to work it, didn't do Malmo or Molde any harm. It's more about the league not Celtic. But of course, a better league, higher attendances and more lucrative TV deals would help Celtic too 😉.

Celtic and Rangers not visiting clubs twice a season - what sort of impact would that have on the finances of certain clubs? Genuine question, and I'm glad I'm not the guy responsible for shaking the league up. In saying that, his plan is just to hope Rangers get better. The first port of call for me, would to have a 'summer league'.

I'd pay 8m. Our current transfer record has been a while now and about time it was broken. But not just for the sake of doing so. I think PR would pay for himself. He's capable of unlocking defences, certainly at CL qualifying level. He lights up games and domestically could run amok for years, and that also is worth paying for.
