ED, heard we are after Lys Mousset from Bournemouth. Think he's the kind of player we should be after. Swap for Ntcham? Definetley.


1.) 16 May 2019 15:03:13
I can’t imagine we will pay the reported 9 million fee for a player that has scored two goals all season.

2.) 16 May 2019 15:43:56
He’s an upgrade on what we’ve got to be honest.

3.) 16 May 2019 16:36:16
Haven’t really seen a lot of him to be honest, just can’t imagine us paying out that figure again for someone who’s not that prolific. 🤷‍♂️.

4.) 16 May 2019 18:04:11
Paid 9 for eddy and he wasn't exactly experienced.

5.) 16 May 2019 18:31:45
He’s a previous France U21 with premier league experience, needs the right club to shine. Champions league football and a different coach may be the difference in the boy.

6.) 16 May 2019 19:57:15
You have done it again Kev, where did I say about him being experienced? I said I couldn’t see us paying that for someone that has scored two goals, we paid 9 for eddy after having him on loan / trial for a season to make sure we knew what we were getting .

7.) 16 May 2019 20:25:56
I never said you said anything about experience Quinn, so no need to pish your panties
All I was meaning with the comparison we that it sounds similar to the eddy deal.
Not a lot of top team action and not a lot of top team goals.
That's what 9 million gets you now a days.

8.) 16 May 2019 21:22:22
I still can’t see us spending that amount again easily, I think peter had to lay down for about a month after signing that cheque.

9.) 16 May 2019 21:39:54
I wouldn't be so sure because we bid 7 million for a right back. But it won't become a regular thing I don't think. Once every now and then.

10.) 18 May 2019 00:22:29
Kev ed already said that bid was a smokescreen cos the player said he wasnt interested before the bid was made. Smokescreen may be the wrong word, just the best I could muster.



06 Jan 2019 21:10:59
Alberth Elis linked from Houston's Dynamo, any word of this ED? Watched a few clips. Looks like a tricky winger.


{Ed007's Note - Celtic were supposedly named on Honduran TV as the club that have made an offer for Ellis.}

1.) 06 Jan 2019 21:42:25
We were named in Mexico as having bid for that CB as well though. Its always worth taking these rumours with a pinch of salt. He looks a player though.

2.) 06 Jan 2019 21:52:04
Another winger. Thank God we're severely short in that department 😂.

3.) 06 Jan 2019 22:20:05
Honduran TV, I take it the source is pretty lame then in that case. Allegedly the player wants to leave.

{Ed007's Note - It was a show the player was on from what I can see and after he said there was an offer from Europe it was the an interviewer or pundit that let slip it was Celtic.......

4.) 06 Jan 2019 22:24:04
You think there’s any truth in it Ed? Given we’ve got Burke and are signing Weah too I can’t see this being true.

{Ed007's Note - Burke's only here for 6 months, or maybe we're cashing in on Forrest while his stock his high 😁

5.) 06 Jan 2019 23:48:00
Ahhh I see ED! Stephen McGowan has rubbishd it he’s normally spot on with celtic links. Apparently we have to check the Daily Mail tomorrow for the gossip. His column id imagine.

{Ed007's Note - I have no idea who he is but anyone that works for the Daily Mail - or reads it for that matter - is well worth the watching.}



25 Dec 2018 15:31:35
We're on our Weah to Baku 🤔, Timothy Weah signed for celtic on a 6 month loan.


1.) 25 Dec 2018 17:51:16
I remember the supposed brother of George Weah at Southampton. Souness brought him on as a sub then took him off for another sub. Think that was his last game haha.

2.) 25 Dec 2018 19:57:39
Good to get the President of Liberia on side. Never know when that might come in handy. A new chapter in the Rebel Song Book.

Seriousna, he's probably played with French Eddy and obviously cuts the mustard. Let him come and make a name for himself!

3.) 26 Dec 2018 11:20:15
Yeah, that was funny, first thing I thought of when I read this story.



07 Aug 2018 20:39:46
Ed is there any interest from us in Chirivella or is it paper talk?


{Ed007's Note - It originated on a hit-whoring site so I doubt it.}

1.) 07 Aug 2018 21:15:32
Ed, I know you have said previously that you expect McGinn to be a Celtic player before the window shuts however with him traveling to Villa today, do you still think so? Personally I would still be surprised if he wasn't a Celtic player however is a bit worrying that he went down to Birmingham.

{Ed007's Note - McGinn is and always was leaving Hibs in this window, if Celtic had agreed a fee with Hibs as I expected they would he would be at Celtic now. If Celtic can't agree a fee with Hibs MCGinn has to see what else is out there, McGinn was never going to wait to sign a pre-contract and stiff Hibs and St Mirren.}

2.) 07 Aug 2018 22:04:19
Thanks, I agree, I thought Celtic would have agreed a fee by now.

{Ed007's Note - I just couldn't (can't?) see Celtic let him slip through their fingers when the player has made it clear to everyone he wanted to come here.}

3.) 07 Aug 2018 22:38:56
Especially when we have gone in with three bids and BR has made it very clear he wants the player.

4.) 07 Aug 2018 22:50:02
Get McGinn back up the road and into CP. We all know he is Celtic fan but let's NOT use that as an excuse not to pay the money and get him in this window.

5.) 07 Aug 2018 22:50:02
McGinn signing for villa tomorrow, medical tomorrow, done deal.

6.) 07 Aug 2018 23:18:48
Ed did the story not come from Neil Jones from the Liverpool echo tweeting then get picked up by the hit whoring website?

{Ed007's Note - He doesn't work for The Echo, he now works for the hit whoring site - do keep up, Kev :-D

7.) 08 Aug 2018 00:15:22
Brendan has already stated his disappointment at the situation allowing other clubs to go in for him when we had the chance to wrap it up quick.

Yet if it all fails then the board will still be defended. Tbh if they fail Rodgers this season then I can see it being his last year. Won't blame him either.

8.) 08 Aug 2018 08:14:17
Aw scratch that found the story saying he's now left.



03 Aug 2018 11:22:44
So Brighton in for McGinn now. We'll lose out on him and regret it, like always 👍. I'm also hearing that celtic have the option to buy Arzani at the end of his Loan deal, makes sense for us and also means Man City make a profit. Which is viable.


1.) 03 Aug 2018 11:50:25
Just been reading that as well, by all accounts McGinn has said he wants to come to us no matter what. Regarding Arzani im sure that the option to buy won't be cheap.

2.) 03 Aug 2018 12:02:08
Im gearing he’s actually in talks with them. One year down there and he will be sold for a small fortune. Another Lawell masterstroke if he goes there.

3.) 03 Aug 2018 11:33:31
Aye a seen that they were in talks with Hibs. u still think we McGinn will hold out for a move to us ED? And do u think this supposed Brighton interest will see us come back in?

{Ed007's Note - Celtic have been in ongoing talks with Hibs about McGinn, the Brighton interest - if it's true - will probably gee us up over it and I still expect McGinn to be a Celtic player once the window has closed.}

4.) 03 Aug 2018 12:33:15
Cheers ED! Hope we don’t let the lad slip away down there!

{Ed007's Note - I'd be surprised if there's anything in the Brighton story so I'm not worried.}

5.) 03 Aug 2018 14:27:35
Funny last few weeks nobody was that enthralled about Mcginn now there’s a hint he may go south it’s all peter lawells fault! Hibs will go out Europe next round then he will join us.

6.) 03 Aug 2018 17:07:45
If McGinn wants to play for us then Brighton don’t stand a chance and if he has any ambition then he’d certainly wait for us to sign him.

7.) 03 Aug 2018 21:14:43
If he has any ambition he will try and play at the highest possible level and that isn't the SPFL!

8.) 03 Aug 2018 21:49:26
Xikos, not too sute how real the Brighton story is? If it is real he has a big decision. Know he loves Celtic but the EPL is a difficult deal to walk away from.

9.) 04 Aug 2018 12:43:02
Brighton want him and hibs have told him if Celtic do not come in with the right deal he will be sold to any other team that does, personally I think Celtic will come in with the right offer which I know think will be £3m I hope if he goes it is to Celtic but Celtic need to sort it out he is worth £3-4m and he loves scoring against the persons.

19 Jun 2019 13:45:00
How many players does everyone actually expect us to sign? Who would you like us to sign? And what positions?

Try keep this within our realm. Obviously id love to see Messi playing for the hoops but it's not going to happen.


1.) 19 Jun 2019 13:57:31
Think we need 4 minimum.
We need at least 1 RB, if Lennon is going to give Ralston more game time then great, but we need someone as an established RB to come in and start.
We need 1, preferably 2 CB, Simo and Ajer have been great but Simo is too injury prone, id be happy to see Benkovic back on loan for this season, and either Mckenna or Jullien come in too.
A natural Lb to cover KT is vital too, Hayes does well when he comes in but can struggle at times, especially against natural wingers.
If we can sort these out then anything after is a bonus, maybe the young guy from Bolton, Luca Connell with an eye to the future and if the board were feeling generous bring in another striker, maybe a target man type player along the lines of Ikpeazu from Hearts,

2.) 19 Jun 2019 13:58:14
A right back, centre half and striker have to be brought in. If Ntcham goes he needs to be replaced but if not I hope we build the team around him and he gets back to the form of 2 seasons ago.

3.) 19 Jun 2019 14:11:17
Kle I’d target the following if it were me
Right back Bart Nieuwkoop (Feyenoord) or Jonas Svensson

Cb tomari or jake salter and benkovic loan or Samir Memišević

Striker Cyriel Dessers

Jord Clasie If Ntcham leaves.

4.) 19 Jun 2019 14:39:54
Line up something like this in a 4231

I think this would be some team.

5.) 19 Jun 2019 14:49:22
Decent quality RB, CB cover at LB And another striker minimum if no one else leaves.

6.) 19 Jun 2019 15:37:39
Have any of you actually seen any of these players play live in the flesh. Toumari isn't ready yet he has still some way to go in his physical development before he is ready for CL or the the grim house. Of those mentioned only Benekovic is close to ready and he may only be here for a year. Remember he could not get back into the side aftre his return from injury.

7.) 19 Jun 2019 15:49:42
We need about five quality. I expect two Fannie’s worse than what we already have if that list is genuine.

8.) 19 Jun 2019 16:08:17
Only benkovic is ready? Out of the players I mentioned they all play in a better league already than spl Clasie is a Southampton player Dutch international on loan in the Dutch league

Dessers is a 24 year old Belgian striker fast and at 6ft 1 am areal threat who has been banging them in at Utrecht and Nac Breda before that,

Nieuwkoop is one of the best right backs in Holland and only 23 is feyenoord number 1 right back

Tomari is ready all day long he was one of the best cb in the championship last year with Derby and had played in the premier league too how’s he not ready that’s ridiculous same goes for salter he’s 100% ready played with Vitesse last year in Holland and was a first pick, these boys are extremely good and we would struggle to get better, if you don’t think these guys are ready for celtic then who could we get that are so called ready?

9.) 19 Jun 2019 19:30:19
2 RB (1 if Ralston is given a chance)
1 LB (2 if Tierney is sold)
2 CB (to replace Boyata and Benkovic, Also moving on Commper and Hendry)
1 box to box midfielder (2 if Ntcham is sold)
1 CF (2 if Edouard is sold)

Squad is a little thin with a few more deadwood needing moved on.



16 Jun 2019 12:55:25
Just about a week into the window which leaves 7 remaining. Who in reality believes we are going to do business to improve the team? We don't even have a player for every position in a starting XI right now and that's a massive worry.

Bain, New GK

New RB, New RB, Ralston (Loan Out? )
Ajer, New CB
New CB, Simunovic
Tierney (might leave) , New LB

Ntcham (Might Leave) , McGregor, Christie, Brown, Bitton, Rogic, kouassi.

Forrest, Shved.

Edouard, Bayo (Loaned out? ) , Griff (Will he return? )

Sinclair, Hayes, Morgan

Just looking at that we need 2 new right backs, 2 new Centre backs, a new left back. Potentially 2 new midfielders, a new left winger and a new striker.

We have a lot of work to do.


1.) 16 Jun 2019 17:03:26
Hayes can play lb so we can do without a lb this reason I reckon.

Rb and 2cbs needed 100%

We've also got johnston and Henderson so doubt we will sign any more cms or wingers even though we need one of each.

Cf also needed badly.

We need to use our link with man city and psg to get a good loan player from each.

1 week down and nothing, not good. I thought we would be getting things done quickly.

2.) 16 Jun 2019 20:09:21
Why do you think bayo will be loaned out? He has a bad injury and was playing with under 23s team to build up fitness as he had not trained/ played.

3.) 16 Jun 2019 22:59:28
Likely to be leave. Commper, Hendry, Mulumbu, Bitton, Ntcham, Miller, Benyu, Gordon.

Possible loans. Morgan, Kouassi, Ralston, Hazard, Doohan.

All players mentioned have question marks over their place in the current team for next season.

Still need major work on refreshing the squad as well as adding first team ready players.

2 x RB 1 x GK 2 x CB 1 x LB 2 x CM and 1 x CF.

Board will go cheap and stick with the same deadwood that's barely kicked a ball for past few seasons and be a few loans and cheap buys to try appease the fans.



01 Jun 2019 08:38:06
ED, have we made contact with Aribo about a potential move? I hope he picks us over villa if true. Boy looks a player.


{Ed007's Note - I've no idea mate. I don't plan on spending much time trying to find out any transfer info in the near future.}

1.) 01 Jun 2019 13:07:12
Probably because there won’t be much info to find out ED! Izzy knocks back a year extension, lustig to be offered a new deal, Sinclair kept on for another year! Uninspiring doesn’t even cover it! The window isn’t even open and I know rite now it’s going to be rubbish honestly! Long long summer coming up IMO!



29 May 2019 09:39:04
It's funny that after Lennons appointment it's clear what the board are doing. Downsizing again. Up on a high, fans all talking about a top manager again, we enter the top 30 clubs in Europe and what happens? We employ Neil Lennon. When our stock is highest. When we have opportunity to expand and lay the beginnings of a top side once again. It all comes crashing down. It's new it able that we will be caught out. We will not make Europe under Lennon, we will struggle to sign players, Lawwell already stated that we don't need many players and that honestly sums that man up. We need new players all first team quality in a number of positions and whoever comes in must challenge for a starting spot. GK, RB, CB, LB, CAM, ST, LW. We need players in all of these positions and business needs to be done early. This won't happen and we will struggle to keep our players happy next season. Fitness has been an issue for two seasons as players are now over worked as there is hardly enough quality to rotate. Explains the massive injury list and the problems we faced all of last season. When we do we drop points against poor teams. If the board and Lawwell can't see that then there's an issue. I can see why ED doesn't want to put all of his time into a Neil Lennon backed Celtic and would be toiling if I was in his position. You do a great job ED and it's always appreciated.


{Ed007's Note - Thanks mate.}

1.) 29 May 2019 14:22:21
Have the last 2 years fitness problems and the urgency for signings got anything to do with NL? So even with a self proclaimed top coach we ended up in the mess u portray. Work required, yes, is NL as good a coach as BR - no, is he a better man manager - maybe, is he (or his team) better at recruitment - yes. To say we won't make Europe is a tad pessimistic. Each to their own however and it's all about opinions. #itwillbe10.

2.) 29 May 2019 16:15:55
My argument is that the players can’t take another year like the past 2. There has to be improvement form our squad players or signings brought in ASAP. The issue is bigger than people realise and undermining it will get us nowhere.

3.) 29 May 2019 23:13:14
Kent likeEh, you are surely doing your bit to prevent Lennon getting us into Europe. Funny enough Lennon when he was far less experienced managed to achieve getting us into Europe and didn't he get more points in qualifying for Champions League, than the mighty O'Neil and Rodgers . We can laugh and sneer at Lennon's erfforts but that is pure negativity. We could laugh and sneer at O'Neil and Rodgers also. Rodgers despite his self acclaimed wonderful ability had damn bad results in Europe
Mo'N had a fantastic team in 2003.& won nothing.



22 May 2019 11:13:15
Hi all, so for a bit of fun and because I'm a sad act I'm going to list all the players we have been linked with during the window and actually see who we end up signing. This is the current list I have set up, I just wondered what everyone's thoughts were on the current links. Again Scott Brown mentioned that a lot of new faces would be coming in and a lot of players would be leaving. Maybe that signals a clean out and a refreshed squad. Hopefully this is the case.

Diemers - Fortuna Sittard - CM
Lys Mousset - Bournemouth - Wing
Dara O'Shea - West Brom - CB
Rekeem Harper - West Brom - CM
Fikayo Tomori - Derby - CB
Roman Darcy - Bolton - ST
Charles Jesaja Herman - Wolfsburg - ST
Salas Wamangituka - Paris FC - ST.


1.) 22 May 2019 13:21:33
Diemers - No idea
Mousset - Tidy enough player but for the reported 10m? No thanks.
O'Shea - No idea
Harper - No thanks
Tomori - Looks a good young CB
Darcy - No idea
Hermann - No idea
Wamangituka - No idea + I think NL said that wasn't the player he was watching.

You missed Alberth Elis off that list Ken mate. We're looking at him according to Izzy 🤔.

Overall it doesn't really scream quality over quantity still does it. Could be some decent projects in there but that's about it.

2.) 22 May 2019 14:51:03
Who’s scouting these player . just the now surely we can’t be actively chasing players . when we don’t even have a manager confirmed . An if we are surely he that tells that Lenny will be here one way or another next season . Because surely the caliber of managed we are after will want to select his own targets.

3.) 22 May 2019 15:29:59
What has Congerton been doing for the last 2/ 3 years. Obviously we’ve had targets in the past. Do we just throw out all those note books when the Head scout leaves? No we don’t. We use the information we had.

Scouts can also be hired externally. Basically self employed and are paid to scout and create reports.

4.) 22 May 2019 15:39:08
Paddybhoy we SIGNED Craig Gordon when we didn't even have a manager. Never mind scouting players.

5.) 22 May 2019 15:51:56
Who said that these were the players we were looking at, it’s like the the new manager, many names mentioned then when it is confirmed we were the first to tell you. oldkilly.

6.) 22 May 2019 16:43:30
Surely any decent manager would want to have some say on the ins and outs of his team . I am not saying past scouted player should be binned or that but the new manager especially a decent one would want to run the rule over them . Not unless the manager has already been selected and behind the scenes having some input . it’s all guess work the now really let’s get sat out the way first sort our hangover on Sunday. Manager position clarified Monday . Then roll on transfer speculations for the next few weeks.

7.) 22 May 2019 16:46:08
Was meant to be a laugh lads lighten up a bit.

8.) 22 May 2019 17:35:44
Aye your right lol . and to be honest I hardly know anything about the players mentioned.

9.) 22 May 2019 20:47:29
I can't believe fans think that scouting and transfer business just stops because the manager leaves. Do they think that strategies just get binned and start again.
Continuality at a club our size is massively important.

10.) 22 May 2019 21:56:50
I would like to think the process of identifying prospects and working on them and preparing for signing them should proceed whether a club have a manager in place or not . In most progressive clubs the managers don't be involved in the sanctioning of new players.

11.) 22 May 2019 22:33:55
To be honest some deals take months sometimes years to put in place. I’m sure clubs at the top level have long term transfer plans alongside there existing short term transfers, acting as a sort of compensation fee for developing the player. We will sign player x from you in 1.5 years for this fee etc. But the deal doesn’t actually get pushed through till that window 1.5 years later. If that makes sense. I’m sure something like that happened with James Rodriguez in the Bayern deal.

For instance Frenkie De Jong before signing for Ajax cost £1 from Willem II. I expect willem to get a cut of the transfer to Barcelona but needed a fee to gain the sell on clause or something along those lines. I’m sure I’ve seen the EDs explaining a year or two ago but I’m paraphrasing!

{Ed001's Note - Ajax paid over £9m for him. Willem II will get a part of 5% that is split between the clubs that developed him. Not sure exactly how much they will get, as Ajax might get some of that.}

He’s experienced. 28 years old. Played over 50 games in European competitions. Is the No1 right back for Denmark and play on both flanks. Way too god for the danish league according to a lot of there fans. He wanted a move away last summer but never got it. This is the type of player we should be after. No brainer here and would command a small fee for the quality of player.

Tom Boyd commented on the matter. I’m sure he will know the score. I think the document has been released and is official. Even Stephen Mcgowan commented on the matter on twitter before deleting his tweet. I’m sure Kev83 backed this up also.

Agreed GreenClover. No offence to your comments either OldKilly as I think McGinn made those comments only after his move to Celtic was off. He would have jumped at the chance. We had a mess of a window last summer and that was solely down to Lawwell not delivering promises and getting deals done. I am all for saving money but there was no issue with the McGinn deal in that respect. No matter what we would have made money back on him whether that was him being a long serving players or selling in a couple of years for a larger sum. We better not make the same mistakes this summer or we will fall further behind.

Probably the only player I would want outside of Celtic in our League. The news came from Stephen Mcgowan at the Daily Mail. I tend to avoid the mail but Stephen is usually spot on with Celtic stuff, think he knows someone in the club so I expect Turnbull to sign. What is it 16 goals from the CAM role? Something we’ve been missing.

He’s on the verge of a Cap for Ukraine also so there won’t be any issues. He’s improving the Scottish game so we will get it over the line no bother.

Alvarez is within our price range and is the type of player we should sign to replace Boyata. He’ll end up at barcelona or something in a few years.
