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.



29 Jul 2018 12:16:30
So transfer rumours this week:

McGinn - Still ongoing, think this one will be sealed once hibs European escapade is over? If they do gain group stages they will be inclined to keep him? Beneficial to both party's in this case. McGinn gaining guaranteed European football and further developing. At this point we can sign him for nothing. Other option will be we sign him outright this summer.

Arzani - Blatant talent, youngest player at the World Cup, and really does look the part (source being YouTube videos) . If the rumours are true and we are trying to bypass the 2 year Loan and sign him permanently then that is great. But u have came to terms with the fact that a two year lon is beneficial to us.

Liam Moore - Is this even an option at the 8 million quoted? Is he really a Rodgers target or is it paper talk? Who knows. I've never seen him play but would welcome comments if anyone has a clue about him?

Joher Rassoul - 6ft 2, 22 year old, Senegalese CB/ CDM. Similar in the way of a Wanyama type player. Definetley looks a prospect. The name has been flagged a few times in regards to celtic and he does fit our standard signing policy. Confident on the ball and seems to slow play down a bit. Converted CDMs to CBs always seem to fit Rodgers plans due to there ability of moving the ball forward.

All rumours, so don't two foot tackle me into next week.


1.) 29 Jul 2018 15:14:10
Liam moore - its reported they knocked back an offer that would be totalling 10m earlier in the window. They might shift on it now with his transfer request going in. I can't see us making that sort of investment. He was their potty and the manager rates him.

It won't happen unless sim or db are away. Anyone seen much of him or is this a case of championship fever? A young top rated english cb with only a 8m price tag? That sets off alarm bells for me im afraid with the money getting punted down there. Im not saying he wouldn't be a great addition. Im sure Southampton would give us 15m next year if he was playing well 😉.

2.) 29 Jul 2018 15:21:55
McGinn will be a pre contract

Only Derby and Birmingham where interested and now they don’t want him - lower level championship teams

If we go back in get it back to the initial bid and no more.

3.) 29 Jul 2018 15:48:36
That might tell it’s own story why hardly any clubs are after Mcginn, I’d def be holding out to save a fee.

4.) 29 Jul 2018 21:40:46
Joher Rassoul is an absolute unit. The exact mould of what we could be doing with - as long as he can actually defend of course.

5.) 29 Jul 2018 21:56:38
Rassouls going to get ye.

6.) 29 Jul 2018 23:02:37
Been watching arzani videos on YouTube myself and the lad looks a genuine talent, speed, trickery, confident, would be perfect to challenge Forrest.

7.) 30 Jul 2018 11:47:06

8.) 30 Jul 2018 13:40:38
I hope he does go to Celtic but I'm glad for once hibs are holding on to a prize asset and I would rather lose him for free than lose him on the cheap, I don't think that's the end to bids from Celtic I've heard that the deal will be £2m + the 33% to st midden and a £1m after his 1st year which personally I would take good luck for 8 in a row guys and keep pumping these newco.

9.) 30 Jul 2018 17:25:24
Hail Hail Hibsboy.



27 Jul 2018 15:52:51
Heard celtic are trying for a permanent deal for Arzani? Player does not agree with the Man City link and apparently the deal is down to the player? Celtic trying to bypass the city loan and sign permanent deal.


1.) 27 Jul 2018 17:35:27
I know Celtic were trying to get him but heard that city get 1st bite at any player from Melbourne because same owners.

2.) 27 Jul 2018 19:05:54
The issue is that if the 2 clubs weren’t owned by the same company, City wouldn’t be able to pick him up for £250k. From what I’ve read, the only reason they were supposedly getting him for that price is so that if they sell him on they’ll get millions of profit and it looks good for UEFA. Then a load of that money can get re-routed back into Melbourne via the company and not City. Similar to Aaron Mooy.

3.) 27 Jul 2018 22:09:46
Read this boy was a free agent as his contract ended in June. Transfermarket has his contract finishes in June don't know how reliable they are.

{Ed007's Note - A years extension was triggered after he made 20 league appearances.}



27 Jul 2018 10:49:24
2 days after Ntcham plays a blinder he's already being sold by the papers. Happens every week during the transfer window. At this rate we won't have a team left.


1.) 27 Jul 2018 19:46:02
Tell you what he's a brilliant player and one of the best I've seen in a long time hope you keep him.

2.) 28 Jul 2018 08:51:59
Ntcham is as good as there is at yhe club atm .

15 Aug 2018 20:42:56
I think everyone just jumping on the band wagon of hating on Hendry. What did he actually do wrong in that game? Lustig is the real problem on that wing. 2 goals over the 2 legs he cost us by failing to block 2 crosses. Blatantly obvious the defence needs work. A number 10 is also essential. If lawwell sits there banking this cash for this stupid hotel. The fans matter, the players matter and our manager matters. If we don't build to challenge we will fail once again, we won't build from strength and will be caught.


1.) 15 Aug 2018 23:27:59
The hotel will be the worst thing ever to happen, you mark my words.



14 Aug 2018 18:15:38
COYBIG. We can do this! 🍀🍀🍀.


1.) 14 Aug 2018 18:43:05
I'm a wee bit apprehensive - not because of the opponents or the venue - but, because we can't seem to keep clean sheets against any team we play these days.
Hopefully we score more than we concede and that's all we need.



12 Aug 2018 11:14:18
If Boyata is sold to Sevilla for 10 million then I want to see all of that re invested in the defence and more. 3 weeks left in the window now. Deals take days almost weeks at celtic. So we must bring in the players we need now.




08 Aug 2018 13:41:47
So ED, to prevent repeat questions can you give us a quick low down on the current interest from celtic in these players?

McGinn - What is happening, have celtic agreed a fee with hibs?

Denayer - Any truth?
Izaguirre - Any Truth?
Roberts - Any Truth?
Arzani - Loan to Buy?



{Ed007's Note - Celtic have matched Villa's offer Hibs, McGinn hasn't agreed personal terms with Villa yet. I don't believe the the Denayer and Izaguirre stuff at all and the kid from Oz will have an option to buy at the end of his loan.}

1.) 08 Aug 2018 15:16:16
Mcginn ain’t coming simple as that! We left it to late and he’s off somewhere else! The other ones smacks of desperation to me!

2.) 08 Aug 2018 15:20:03
Just read it was villa who matched our terms on CQN. But we told him he wouldn't be a first pick but Bruce has told him he would be a first pick every week.
They are saying he's signing for villa.

3.) 08 Aug 2018 15:39:21
Load of shoite kev! No way I’m buying that garbage! Saving face if u ask me. we've left it to late and that’s it! Lennon said himself we matched villas bid!

4.) 08 Aug 2018 15:42:34
Not first time I've heard the first pick thing though.
And to be honest we all know he'd just be a squad player at parkhead just now.

5.) 08 Aug 2018 15:54:34
But if he's taking a medical then he must be signing a would think we've left it too late.

6.) 08 Aug 2018 16:17:33
Just can’t see Bruce guaranteeing the boy first team every week. let's be honest and say Brendan really wanted the player and has done for months but they haven’t delivered for him. its as simple as that really.

7.) 08 Aug 2018 16:30:30
Trying to look at the Mcginn situation with optimism, although it’s not easy.

Perhaps they already had the medical booked before we came back in, and he chose to go ahead with it in case the deal falls through with us and he can rush through a deal with villa.

Either way very frustrating.

8.) 08 Aug 2018 16:38:24
McGinn Medical for Villa I take this is a done deal now? Have you heard anything ED?



07 Aug 2018 10:35:44
If we do sell Boyata for 12 million then Compper is ready to come into the team for wedensday night. Let's see how long he will last this time 😂. In that event I hope we have someone lined up to replace Boyata. Surely some very talented players out there ready to take the step up. Balkan market is where a lot of players lie with huge potential. Look at teams like Zvezda. Great youth systems. Worth a look in.


1.) 07 Aug 2018 10:46:49
Dont think u could throw compper In to that game plus is he not still injured.

2.) 07 Aug 2018 11:41:54
Compper is ready to return that’s my point.

3.) 07 Aug 2018 12:08:51
Compper has shown nothing in all the time he has been here to give me any confidence he can play in such an important game.
Why not play Gamboa at right back, leaving Lustig to play centre back if we really are struggling?

4.) 07 Aug 2018 12:49:39
Shift Compper, Bitton, Gamboa and Boyata and we could replace them with the players we need and want without breaking the bank. McGinn in, Roberts loan fee, A new CB and RB.

5.) 07 Aug 2018 12:51:10
Or just play Hendry or Jozo beside ajer.

6.) 07 Aug 2018 13:33:16
Compper will be at least be on the bench that is my bet. I never once said he would be starting or any of the sorts. Bravetart, you’re seriously willing to pay another loan fee for Roberts? Pointless. McGinn is off to Villa it seems so rule that one out. We can’t even get our top target in so rule out anyone else of that nature.

7.) 07 Aug 2018 14:37:56
I would keep Gamboa I can't see much wrong in him Compper Yeah get rid if we can do it without much loss.

8.) 07 Aug 2018 15:45:55
The truth is we don’t know what compare can do. He certainly hasn’t looked a player, but to be fair to him it’s hard to show anything in the time he was on. He did make a horrendous Celtic defence tyiexsuicude pass in that game that had me saying, feck, another bombscare. The fact is we should have anticipated Boyata could have been off and we didn’t. Same old every feckin year.

We got about £8m for VVD Aswell. Let’s not forget about that. We’ve got plenty cash for transfers. It’s just not being spent. If the window ends and we’ve brought in 2 players. I’ll be dissapointed. Before anyone frets about breaking our transfer record. So what? It was worth it. But there are other areas of the team that blatantly need work. Right Back is weak as it’s been for a long time. A few CBs need to be moved on and bring others improved on. We need another Right Winger. We need another CAM as we can’t break teams down well enough and to be honest the left wing spot is quite weak Aswell. These are my opinions on what is needed. In my eyes that is all blatantly obvious.

Stojanovic is a quality player and is really a steal. Ran us ragged when he played for Maribor.

The most celtic like transfer in history. If Lawwell doesn’t give Rodgers what he wants now then we will be in trouble. Who’s the second option to McGinn then? Is he lined up. I doubt it. Shambles.

You heard anything on Svetozar Markovic ED? Apparently we have made a move to bring him in? May be Boyatas replacement? Also, Stojanovic from Dinamo Zagreb?

I agree Quinn, fact is we are not as strong as everyone makes out. We are not as far ahead as everyone likes to think. We can barely bring in a player never mind beat AEK Athens who have 10 men for 35 minutes, haven’t played a competitive math and we are at home. That match had everything riding on it and it was clear our defence wasn’t good enough. Lustig, he is passed it and that is clear. Hendry, not enough experience at that level. Two positions that everyone has stated for months need strengthened and that is clear. No matter how many players in a certain position you have. There’s still a reason to bring better in.
