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 àround 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 👍🏻.

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.




29 Jan 2017 15:17:23
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.

2.) 29 Jan 2017 16:51:51
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



31 Aug 2016 09:26:49
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!

Hi Ed, can I ask a Quick question.

I read that even if Scotland win on Sunday we still need Sweden, Bosnia or Wales to drop points or we could miss out on goal difference.
Is this true?


{Ed007's Note - I have no idea mate, sorry. I don't bother with international football that much.}

1.) 07 Oct 2017 18:36:10
That's true mate (or Northern Ireland to get beat) I think. But the Bosnians are 3-2 down against Belgium with ten minutes to go.

2.) 07 Oct 2017 19:02:19
Yip mate and Belgium beat Bosnia.

3.) 07 Oct 2017 18:53:32

4.) 07 Oct 2017 20:56:55
The points won against the lowest rank teams get taken off the 2nd placed play-off teams then the team with the lowest points miss out.



31 Aug 2017 16:04:57
ED, has the young French boy signed?


{Ed007's Note - He had his medical earlier and just waiting on the official announcement mate.}

1.) 31 Aug 2017 17:36:14
I was told that we have a option for a permanent move if it works out Is this true Ed?

{Ed007's Note - Everywhere's saying so but there's nothing official yet.}

2.) 31 Aug 2017 18:21:43
Cheers ED.

{Ed007's Note - (yes)



25 Aug 2017 20:46:22
Alright guys, I'm heading to Caleta de Fuste in Fuerteventura on the 10th Sep.
Gutted i'm going to miss the PSG and Glasgow Derby, I was wondering if anyone knows if there are any good bars that will have the games.

Cheers in advance.


1.) 25 Aug 2017 21:09:44
theres a irish bar attached to castillo mar apartments mate just down past chinese restuarant near the barcelo hotel sure youll get it there bud.

2.) 25 Aug 2017 21:45:38
Lucky git, great place for a holiday enjoy mate.

3.) 25 Aug 2017 22:04:35
Cheers Bhoys.

4.) 26 Aug 2017 09:12:13
Was there a couple of months ago, Oconnells Irish bar just off the square on the way to the beach is a good bar for the games, I watched the pre-season friendliest in there, was packed both games.



21 Aug 2017 20:34:51
I see Peter Lawwell is sitting in front on Mourinho at the game tonight. Is that him down finalising the Roberts deal.




17 Aug 2017 12:54:20
Great news that SA is signing a new contract but it gives the Boss one hell of a delema in midfield. Brown and Ntcham have to be certain starters for me so that leaves the rest fighting for the No:10 spot. It will be great though as if and when the injuries or suspensions kick in we won't be any weaker.


1.) 17 Aug 2017 13:37:26
We are hoping to play even more games this season than last. Will rotation all players will get game time if think.

2.) 17 Aug 2017 15:20:32
accounting for injuries, suspensions etc we have 5 CM in bitton, armstrong, brown and ntcham, also henderson, think mcgregor and rogic for the 10 slot imo, also christie to come back, the competition for places is great atm, if we can get a CB and a winger we will have a very strong squad.

{Ed007's Note - What about Eboue Kouassi?}

3.) 17 Aug 2017 16:18:09
stand corrected big chap, 6 CM, can't believe i forgot about him Ed, was only bigging the lad up the other day lol.

4.) 17 Aug 2017 18:31:26
Bitton has already shown he has a talent for playing in defence so Brendan could impove his game in that position. Get that right and it saves a few quid on a new signing!

5.) 17 Aug 2017 20:47:12
Bitton getting brendaned and it actually works, would be as good as signing a new defender.

Still think a striker of some description, someone to develop as a third option because the two main ones are a bit injury prone. Roberts obviously a desirable one too but could this be the year of consistency for forrest?

I would have liked to have seen DDV in goal and hazard on the Bench, Interesting Dembele not starting, is he away in Jan or are we saving him for Aberdeen.

Can we all at least give the boy a chance, I'm not saying he will have the same effect but can anyone remember the way people reacted when we signed a wee 33yr old Slovakian from a fighting relegation in the German league.


{Ed007's Note - What's signing Lubo got to do with it, don't you remember Freddie Ljungberg? He was the same age as Compper is when we signed him and that's got nothing to do with it either. The Lubo comparison is up there with the 'he'll give us experience' rubbish. We don't need experience we need quality.}

HOOPS88 - You don't hear from him for months and then he comes back to give everyone a laugh.
So BR is going to quit right before the biggest games of our season playing the Elite of European football to scrap it out in a relegation fight in the PL. In an interview yesterday when he was asked about playing 4 qualifying ties next year he said "you can ask me that next year" doesn't sound like someone that is walking away, Oh wait that's the dead team that do that!
Hoops88, I always thought you were Skinnybhoy in disguise. LOL.

I think he had 12 months left and signed for an extra year. I wouldn't be surprised to see him sold in January. If not he will be gone in the summer for about half of what we could have got for him this summer.

Problem is that everyone is saying we should rest players and bring in the young boys. Whilst I agree with this, what happens if BR makes 4 or 5 changes and one or two. of them don't play well or make a mistake and we get beat. People will be going daft.
