So the clear out continues with Jamie McCart and Joe Thomson leaving.
The squad is really being trimmed as Brendan said it would.


1.) 22 Jun 2018 21:06:58
They wernt really squad players jonbhoy . wish them both well as they both looked promisimg but never made the next level for whatever reason.

Hi Ed

I was just wondering if there has been any further news on a defender.
I thought that we might bring in Steven Caulker, do you think this still might happen if we don't sign anyone else before the window shuts as we can sign him after that with him being free.

Thanks for all your work also.


{Ed007's Note - You're welcome buddy. Caulker is training with Luton Town, Jon. The last I heard was that he wanted to stay as close to London as possible to have his family, friends and support network around him to aid his recovery.
The only other defender I know of interest in is Hendry and there will be or has been a further bid made.}

1.) 30 Jan 2018 14:37:06
Cheers ED.
I read on another site that the Dark Side might be interested in him after Wilson left that made me laugh.

2.) 30 Jan 2018 15:53:42
Anyother names for keeper ED? If we try to buy at this late in the game price doubles? Loan would suit best.

{Ed007's Note - Nada.}

3.) 30 Jan 2018 16:27:40
Is he good haha.

{Ed007's Note - Whoa!! That's nearly funny from you, Rich (clap) Well done! :)

4.) 30 Jan 2018 16:35:12
Sorry ED just seen a name for u to check out Martinez Arsenal keeper who is out on Loan story being put out there Leeds also interested ( the Sun )



18 Aug 2017 21:47:55

Is there anything in the rumour that we are interested in Striker Saman Ghoddos or is it just more paper talk.


{Ed007's Note - I've never heard of him but seemingly QPR have had a bid rejected, sorry.}

1.) 18 Aug 2017 23:33:37
When you look at Ghoddos' record it's not really any different than when folk suggest somebody like Louis Moult as backup striker and at least he is tried and tested in our league, which is stronger than the Allsvenskan.

2.) 19 Aug 2017 00:25:22
Goal records aren't everything. The boys only 23 and has earned his first 2 caps, and first goal, for Sweden this year. That suggests he's far superior to Moult. If we buy another striker it either needs to be an experienced player who played at a high level previously or a top young talent from an obscure region such as Africa who could develop into a good player. A 25 year old from Motherwell is not the answer. We have a striker of that ilk and he's just about to head for Plymouth.

3.) 19 Aug 2017 00:40:02
You're right LM, we don't need players for Spl, anybody that comes in has to be CL quality or it's a waste of money as we have ร round 20 players that are better than anything else in the spl.

4.) 19 Aug 2017 08:18:55
I hear you, LM. But Moult was about as dangerous as Hayes over the last two years if I recall correctly (not having especially paid attention to either) . Seems a fairly realistic prospect for a job that is always going to be behind the scenes. The fact that Ciftci never got a look in during our injury crises perhaps tells us all we need to know about the recruitment of a new striker, however.

5.) 19 Aug 2017 08:42:11
I'm not saying I want us to get Moult at all btw. My point was that this guy is an unknown quantity and could be a risk (on the other hand he could be a total gem) . LM67, whether you rate him or not, Moult is better than Ciftci. Also the suggestion that a CL quality striker will come to Scotland and be 3rd choice is wishful thinking Stevie. BR has stated we aren't looking for another TOP striker as he couldn't be kept happy.

6.) 19 Aug 2017 09:58:53
Moult may be better than Ciftci, but we've bought the best player outside Celtic this summer in Hayes, who already looks out his depth.

We should be after someone who was once CL quality or someone who can be in the future.

To be honest with Paddy coming back I'm not that desperate for another striker to come in.

7.) 19 Aug 2017 16:45:55
That's fair LM ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป.

8.) 19 Aug 2017 21:58:26
New to group but followed for a while, first time posting, like the look of lad ghoddos lighting fast and knows where the goals are, think he'd be good for us, don't see anyone better in Scotland Ps who is ed, everyone seems to ask him advice.

9.) 20 Aug 2017 12:44:11
Site Editor 007, Pedro. Welcome aboard.



09 Aug 2017 18:57:44
Has there been any update on wee Shaun joining as a coach and with him being offered the job does that mean that big Kolo won't be joining?


1.) 10 Aug 2017 11:14:41
I read Kolo was talking with the Ivory Coast about being invilved with the national set up.



12 Jul 2017 11:22:12
Ntchem deal confirmed. Welcome to Paradise young man.

Wanted to ask a a question into how Fifa might improve the game. Watched a lot of the world cup and
After the obvious play acting during games with players going down and rolling about and also taking the piss when being subbed (Mbappe)
Do you think when the play is stopped on these occasions that the clock is stopped as it is in Rugby for injuries. It might cut back on the play acting when you then get players jumping up and running about, it would also cut back on the usual arguments and complaints regarding refs not adding on enough injury time.


1.) 21 Jun 2018 20:06:41
Absolutely, it makes perfect sense.

2.) 21 Jun 2018 21:19:44
Great idea.

3.) 21 Jun 2018 22:50:21
The games are boring enough without stretching them out to cover all the time lost through injuries and substitutions.

4.) 22 Jun 2018 00:26:25
I remember reading an article a few months ago about some changes to the game that FIFA were considering. One said that the ball is actually only in play for about 60 minutes a game on average. So they were considering making games 60 minutes long but stopping the clock anytime the ball is out of play similar to what they do in rugby.

5.) 22 Jun 2018 00:51:15
I know totally daft but how about giving a place to a UNICEF team drawn from players from all continents from teams that never made it, Griffiths, bale, van dye etc.

Too many beers and off to bed

Sorry gents.

6.) 22 Jun 2018 10:26:35
Chris were you saying that when Porto did that to us in Seville? Of course extending the game to cover people cheating is a good idea and would cut it down. I would also use VAR to book players who go down untouched all over the park.



21 Jun 2018 17:40:06
Same thing happens every transfer window. People do nothing but complain, accuse the board of not spending money.
Maybe people would be happy if we signed 5 or 6 players in the first week and didn't do any other business, no wait.
The board would then be accused of bringing players in just for the sake of it.


1.) 21 Jun 2018 17:59:55
Or signed the first player available like sevco ๐Ÿ˜‚.

2.) 21 Jun 2018 19:53:52
Sevco have added a few half decent signings and spent money maybe they truly think they can compete even though we finished 12 points above them even though we through the matches against Hibs and Aberdeen, after Logan's reaction though would we ever do Aberdeen a favour again.

3.) 21 Jun 2018 20:43:47
Threw the matches, behave yourself.

4.) 21 Jun 2018 22:05:41
Our focus after winning the league was the cup final and we took our eye off the ball (so to speak)

5.) 21 Jun 2018 22:54:28
They had more to play for and it showed.



17 Jun 2018 16:14:57
Just watching the Germany game and I caught the commentator saying "he is a huge Celtic fan. Scored a goal against Celtic this season" does anyone know who he was talking about as I missed the name.


1.) 17 Jun 2018 17:06:35
Bayern 3 Celtic 0.take your pick Jonboy, muller. kimmich and Hummels all scored, but i think he was talking about muller.

2.) 17 Jun 2018 17:44:22
Cheers Benny. I wasn't sure.

3.) 17 Jun 2018 18:27:01

4.) 17 Jun 2018 19:47:52
Are these guesses does anyone actually know.

5.) 17 Jun 2018 20:14:30
It was Hummels. They said his last club goal was against us.

6.) 18 Jun 2018 00:21:33
What a shame he signed for Sevco a few weeks ago. Oh wait a minute. lol




15 Jun 2018 22:15:45
Not Celtic related but I was wee question for all you mad gamblers out there.
I don't normally gamble and only ever put a wee bet on some football but tonight I put a wee bet on Portugal win and BTTS, through the 365 online app.
The game finished 3-3 but I got a payout like I had won.

Just wondering if anyone has had this happen before or if it is a total mistake on their part.


1.) 15 Jun 2018 23:01:05
I do that bet regulary Jon, looks like a mistake if you chose Portugal. Take the money and run!

2.) 16 Jun 2018 10:05:36
Seems like a total mistake mate well done. unless you cashed out at some point when Portugal were winning.

3.) 16 Jun 2018 15:13:49
If u don't often gamble is it possible u chose a draw both teams to score by mistake? It's unlikely that the betting company made a mistake as it's computerised. Still possible but unlikely. Either way well done.

{Ed007's Note - And of course Jonbhoy's aware that I get 10% of all winning bets declared on here......... :)



15 Jun 2018 14:17:59
I wonder if Brendan will look to bring in any more young French players.
The 3 we have signed so far have all turned out to be superb players.

Young Dembele only turned 15 earlier this year. I think it will be next season before he even gets anywhere near the first team squad.
Did BR not go daft because he played for the u21's or something like that when he was only 14.

Was Okoflex one of the young boys we had up on trial a few weeks ago?


{Ed007's Note - I don't know but that's a good shout.}

Have we signed the boy?

You seem to know the boys family. Are they confident the deal will get done or is there a chance he will sign for another "certain" team or go down south?

The boy knows we want him. For once we should do what Sevco do and play to the media and let the boy know we will sign him up in Jan through the press.
We can stick with Kouassi as cover this season and spend the money on the defence.

I don't think it was a penalty but it might have been given because it changed the direction of the ball.

Like I mentioned before. Engurlund should never have been that far, as far as I'm concerned the second Columbian goal should never have been disallowed.


{Ed007's Note - Wasn't VAR infallible and made sure that every decision was 100% correct?}
