A bit disappointed to hear BRB say we might not get any more in. Definitely need another striker


1.) 29 Jan 2017 15:42:12
Same here mate. I was happy with our business in the summer, but was given pelters for thinking we could have done more. This window, I'm happy to get a CDM in (as happy as I can be without having seen the kid) , and whereas it's pointless buying for buying's sake, it would have been nice to see one or two more in, and a few leave. I used this window as a reference point in the summer, waiting for the comments from the manager, and what I predicted has indeed happened. Manager says it's an important window at the start, concedes a wee bit at the end. Hey Ho.

Think it is definitely the right policy.
If we can't get who we want then we don't waste time and money on someone just for the sake of bringing in someone.

3.) 29 Jan 2017 19:31:02
Maybe I am to optimistic but I still would not rule us out in bringing in another new player before Tuesday dead line the players mentioned may not be who we are really looking at to bring in

4.) 30 Jan 2017 16:54:01
I would rather get rid of the deadwood first before we signed anyone else

From the Mail:-

Celtic offered chance to sign international striker

Celtic have been offered the chance to sign Dinamo Zagreb striker Angelo Henriquez, according to the Daily Express.

The 22-year-old - who spent three years with Manchester United without making a Premier League appearance for the club - is available for around £1m, the Express reports.

The Express adds that Brendan Rodgers hopes to add another midfielder and forward to his squad before the deadline, so perhaps the chance to sign the Chile international may appeal to the Northern Irishman.


1.) 31 Aug 2016 10:26:10
Hope there is some substance to this story this guy scores goals for fun.

2.) 31 Aug 2016 17:06:42
Be well happy with that if it's true!



30 Jan 2016 13:29:48
Hi Ed

Is there any progress on the Ajer situation?


{Ed007's Note - They're still negotiating the fee. Ajer was left on the bench for Start's friendly last night against Bodo/Glimt at the request of CFC so they can't be too far away from agreeing the price. I still think Ajer will stay with Start on loan until the summer.}

1.) 30 Jan 2016 14:27:04
cheers Ed.

{Ed007's Note - No probs mate.}

2.) 30 Jan 2016 15:10:47
Why's that Ed, think we'll just have time to agree a deal but not be able to push through a medical etc? Might be best he stays at Start until then anyway to guarantee game time. This could be a very shrewd bit of business in my eyes. We all remember Freddy Adu, and a player's career that is this young could go either way but in terms of kids his age there can't be that many performing regularly at such a good level.

{Ed007's Note - That's why I think it's a lot of money to spend on a 17 year old, it's a big gamble but it could turn out to be a bargain.}

3.) 30 Jan 2016 18:07:10
Think Ajer will be staying at start if we sign him as he wants to finish school plus he will continue to get game time there.



11 Jan 2016 08:46:03
Does anyone know what's happened to Saidy Janko.

I don't know if he is injured but he had a big rep at Man U and I thought we would have seen more of him in the Hoops.


1.) 11 Jan 2016 09:02:46
Has had a few persisting injurys hearing nothing serious but that's been a wee while now since he was last involved.

2.) 11 Jan 2016 18:40:25
Cheers Tompo.

Does anyone know when BR is back from holiday?
I'm not at all worried but I don't think we will announce any signings until he is back and the dark side seem to be signing players everyday.


1.) 09 Jun 2017 17:39:08
So what? Would you prefer us to sign 5 unknown Mexican/ Portuguese players from benfica reserves and a 74 year old from cagliari just for the sake of it?

2.) 09 Jun 2017 17:55:52
Did I say that? I said i'm not worried.
we have just over 4 weeks until the CL qualifiers and all I asked was does anyone know when BR returns from holiday.

3.) 09 Jun 2017 18:04:52
Rangers should be no concern to any of us just now.

4.) 09 Jun 2017 18:44:14
The guy has just got married, give him a wee bit private time.

5.) 09 Jun 2017 18:45:41
He got married today didn't he. If your not worried then don't see the point of talking about rangers announcing signings.

6.) 09 Jun 2017 19:17:51
Jon Bhoy these are the posters that will be on huffing and puffing IF Pedro and his unknowns give us a game or heaven forbid beat us.

Lots of clubs have done business and I was sure BR said a few months back that we where working on players then. Hopefully get some players in over the next few weeks and be at a higher level than the SPL and League of Ireland players linked with us so far.

7.) 09 Jun 2017 19:44:17
Which posters would those be Kev T?

8.) 09 Jun 2017 20:34:44
Well you 2 having a go at the OP.

9.) 09 Jun 2017 20:41:01
What is this with who the tribute act bring in! I personally couldn't give a toss because it won't make a blind bit of difference to the outcome of the league next year! We don't need 8 or 9 new players they do! We've got a settled team who have just went a whole season unbeaten and won a trophy! I'm the most relaxed going into a new season that I'll ever have been! We'll add 2 or 3 bits of real quality to go with what we've got and we'll go again. let the gullibles slabber the same old crap we heard this time last year, because like i said it won't make a blind bit of difference to us winning the league once again!

10.) 09 Jun 2017 21:16:51
I wasn't having a go. I apologise to Jonbhoy if that's how it came across and will re-phrase what I initially said; Rangers are no concern to me just now.

11.) 09 Jun 2017 21:45:09
Jonbhoy71, have you seen their signings? They are desperate dross. They wouldn't make the main stand at Celtic Park!

12.) 09 Jun 2017 21:46:46
They did same last season. Apart from Alvez they are all untried. May be decent but not enough to topple Celtic but they are going for it. If it goes wrong they are probably finished so big season for them. I am a wee bit anxious re lack of transfers as well but i hope BR is just keeping his powder dry and he will land 2 or 3 big ones.

13.) 09 Jun 2017 22:38:56
Better level of player this year, certainly better than what we are linked with so far.

Think I'm just dying to see us sign a cracking player and wish it would happen sooner rather than later.

14.) 10 Jun 2017 12:06:12
😂74 year old👏, like yer man says though im hoping moves are being made behind tge scenes for real quality, sure ww won the league at a canter with this side and will do again but we want a good european season to after christmas at least and in that sense improvement can be made anywhere in the squad, 🇮🇪✌️.



31 Jan 2017 10:01:17
Hi Ed

Do you know if there is any truth in BR not being happy with the budget. I would have thought that would have all been agreed before he signed on and that DD would make sure no one risks BR walking away after 1 season


{Ed007's Note - No, it's just more negative bs made up by the media to, what's that now? 5 or 6 players Rodgers has fell out out with and now the board over budgets while TRIFC are signng two-bit action an heads nobody else wants - it's all just PR stunts, Rodgers is well aware of his budget and knows there's money there and available for the right signing if he feels it's worth it. Rodgers won't spend money just for the sake of it or if the player isn't better than what we hsd.}

1.) 31 Jan 2017 12:40:50
Apart from maybe another forward why the clamour for new faces the young midfielder is good business hopefully, and I am sure they'll get there signings in early in the summer

2.) 31 Jan 2017 13:18:16
Cheers ed. I thought it was all bull

{Ed007's Note - Rodgers know the financial constraints when he got the job, why is it all of a sudden being portrayed as a problem?}



28 Jan 2017 19:45:36
I see a lot of Killie fans are raving about young Ajer after there game.
Thought he might have had a better chance with us and I hope he comes back and get a good chance in the team


1.) 29 Jan 2017 10:01:05
He'll be a ready made CB for next season save us a fortune



31 Oct 2016 01:23:08
Just wondering if we don't get the result we need on Tuesday, Should we play a weaker team against Barcelona as it will be a meaningless game and we have the cup final 4 days later.


1.) 31 Oct 2016 08:05:55
How would it be meaningless? We will probably be only 3 points behind Manchester City still.

2.) 31 Oct 2016 08:20:18
As long as staying in Europe is possible nothing is meaningless.

3.) 31 Oct 2016 08:57:47
Not a chance. Look what they did to us last time we put out our strongest team! You'd be looking potentially at double figures.

4.) 31 Oct 2016 11:52:02
I don't think Any player would want to stay out of that game so perhaps come the time as far as us qualifies go it will as you say be meaningless but to the players or the fans it will be still a must win/ partisapate game.

5.) 31 Oct 2016 21:40:03
Just saying if we get beat by BMG and Man city lose, we will be 3 points behind but as it stands just now we are already -9 goals, It would take a huge effort to get anything from Barcelona and even if we beat Man C away we would still go out on goal difference.

Getting into the group was all we could have hoped for this season and I would rather make sure we secured the first part of the treble this season and build for the CL next season.



24 Oct 2016 21:14:49
Hi Ed

Is there any news of young Ajer getting back into the first team, Thought he would be perfect along side Brown but since breaking his thumb he doesn't seem to get a look in.
Surely he must be better than Bitton.


{Ed007's Note - Ajer's just a kid remember, he was never going to get much first-team football this season and I said in the summer I wouldn't be at all surprised to see him go out on loan in January.}

1.) 25 Oct 2016 00:03:06
Ajer isn't in the first team pool . Brendan Rodgers has no plans for playing him in the first team this season. We have Christie, Henderson and Mc Gregor all ahead of him.

Totally agree NC. Times have changed at parkhead. Lawell won't be telling Rodgers anything. Rogers wouldn't stand for that again after having to put up with all that at Liverpool, he has mentioned on several occasions that he is in total control of all aspects of the football side of the club. He has also mentioned that if he needs to break the club's transfer record he will so there is funds available. I can see 3 or 4 quality players coming in depending on who leaves but there is no way Lawell or the board would risk upsetting the Apple cart.

I noticed in his interview when asked he said "i won't say anything right now" maybe they are tying the loose end up and it will be announced before the final next week along with Armstrong signing his new deal.
That would be some great news going into the summer.

All he said was, I'm not going to say anything right now.
Maybe the negotiations are ongoing and he does want to rule anything out.
