Reports in Poland linking us with Grosicki?


1.) 08 Aug 2017 14:55:43
Apparently want 9-10 mill. Doubtful.

hull player?, always looked tidy when i've seen him.

Good player but not worth that much.



30 Jul 2017 11:41:44
Any further progress with the Caulker rumours? I'm pretty confident that Paddy Roberts will be a Celtic player come the end of the season. Just need to get this Rosenberg tie over the line!


1.) 31 Jul 2017 12:26:48
Caulker back in training with qpr holloway saying he wants to keep him but on a positive he only has 1 year left on contract so u never know.

2.) 01 Aug 2017 06:45:12
Didn't the lad say in an interview with the guardian that the owners of qpr said he would never play for them again.



17 Jun 2017 10:26:32
Any of the EDS now if we are still after Henry Onyekuru or not?


{Ed007's Note - We're still interested but the fee is too high while there's so many interested parties in England but all of them will find it difficult - maybe even impossible - to gain a work permit for him, even under the 'exceptional talent' rules. It would be easier for him to gain a work permit if he signed for us.}

1.) 17 Jun 2017 14:12:32
I read somewhere that if teams spend more on his transfer fee it becomes easier to gain a permit. No idea if there's any truth in that.

{Ed007's Note - English clubs could pay an inflated fee and seriously inflated wages but there's still no guarantees from what I know about it all.}



13 Jun 2017 11:36:53
Heard we're in for Lovro Majer, highly rated Croatian, 750k release clause? Only what I've heard not saying it's fact.


1.) 13 Jun 2017 18:55:17
What position does he play?

2.) 13 Jun 2017 19:22:15
19 year old attacking midfielder , he has already played once for the Croatian national team, I would be surprised and delighted if we picked up a prospect like this for 750 thousand pounds.

3.) 14 Jun 2017 09:02:56
Can I ask whoever disagreed, if it's his position you disagree with? Or the fact that getting a 19 year old who has already made his full debut for Croatia, at that price would be good business?

4.) 14 Jun 2017 14:31:38
I would not be bothered with people disagreeing knight the dark side come on hear also.

{Ed007's Note - The kid's going to be a star and it would be some coup if we could get a deal for him done.}



12 May 2017 13:07:18
My mate was saying Celtic have met with Solanke about his role within the club prior to a deal being made? Has anyone or ED seen anything about this? Probably drivel but thought I would ask.


{Ed007's Note - Yes there has been talks with the player and his agent, it'll come down to money.}

1.) 12 May 2017 13:34:26
If we signed Solanke and keep Dembele we'll be looking really promising in the forward dept.

{Ed007's Note - Do you think LG could leave if we sign Solanke? I'd say that would push The Thumb down to 3rd choice and he quite rightly isn't going to be happy about that.}

2.) 12 May 2017 13:44:13
He'd be within his rights to be unhappy Ed, aye. LG has his limitations but he's been great for us domestically. We need three strikers though. Looking forward, I'd have Dembele as 1st pick, as we've seen, and Solanke as back up once he's shown he can fit in and start scoring. If LG was being kept out on merit, then he'd be free to go in my eyes should he wish. We'd then be left with little choice but to promote a youngster.

{Ed007's Note - I've always got the impression that Rodgers isn't a Griffiths fan, even before he spoke to the press about him in January about him needing to shape up. Remember when Rodgers first came in and was asked about Griffiths and him scoring 40 goals last season he replied something like 'But I wasn't here last year', which I thought was a bit of an offhand reply.
I was thinking along the lines that we would target a youngster like an Ajer or Eboue Kouassi that would love the chance to come into a massive club like Celtic, working with and learning from Rodgers and his staff etc and would be happy to bide his time playing in the odd game for a year or so.}

3.) 12 May 2017 14:17:01
I think you might be right with that impression. I'm going to call it and say Solanke is being lined up as second choice striker, who will get plenty of time to impress. Even a third choice striker would have had plenty chances this season had we opted to use one!

{Ed007's Note - If you play with a lone striker you need 3 in your squad, any less and you'll be in trouble at some point as we seen.
Could LG be moved on, Solanke brought in and Aitchison made the 3rd, would you be happy with that?}

4.) 12 May 2017 14:22:57
What would you say the chances of solanke signing are ED? I'm really hoping we get him, he must be the real deal and if his attitude is correct he will be a success. Only time will tell.

{Ed007's Note - There's definitely a chance but he will need to drop his financial demands. If another club offers him what he wants he'll go to them, there is a vaguely related family member supporting Solanke in his quest for very large sums of money.}

5.) 12 May 2017 14:29:36
It great to see Celtic showing some business nounce with regards to finding these young players at end of contracts. Snapping them up on cheap fees because of the development fee loop hole. Celtic is becoming more appealing to these types of players as we are given them a massive platform to develop and showcase themselves. I think Griffiths would stick around unless we signed an out and out striker. This lad appears to be a winger from what I have heard.

{Ed007's Note - No mate, Solanke can play anywhere in the final third but his
preferred position is a striker and that's where he sees himself playing.
Srdan Plavsic who we were linked to yesterday is a right winger.}

6.) 12 May 2017 14:36:20
Is his natural position not AMR Ed?, maybe getting brought in to replace roberts?

{Ed007's Note - No, his natural position is a striker. Google this lol

Celtic favourites to sign Chelsea striker Dominic Solanke

7.) 12 May 2017 14:50:03
i wouldn't let LG go he is needed here. it all what iffs but who said the young guy solanke is going to be another moose what if he doesn't like playing and staying in glasgow, its better we keep LG until the we find out.

8.) 12 May 2017 15:16:50
I would be very happy with that Ed. Said on here before, given the opportunity with cross border rules, Solanke is pretty high up my list and ticks all the boxes as to what we're after. Are Chelski after 8m for him off an English side?

{Ed007's Note - That's what's been estimated a tribunal would rule as a fee if he joined another English side.}

9.) 12 May 2017 15:40:32
i read that he`s worth 1.7million, is that right.

{Ed007's Note - His personal wealth? I have no idea of that.}

10.) 12 May 2017 15:53:14
I don't think I'd be happy with Moussa, Solanke and Aitchison tbh Ed. LG comes with a guarantee of goals and if Solanke was to come and not settle or not hit some good form then I wouldn't like to see us relying on a 17 year old rookie to win us vital games if anything happened to Moose.

{Ed007's Note - It would be Solanke that would come in if Dembele got injured.}

11.) 12 May 2017 16:01:24
i mean to sign him and he would be a replacement for roberts, i don't know much about him, i have just done some research on him and im useless on computers and internet reseaerch so don't know if the places i searched are reliable or not lol, but its still to early to say what's happening, im sure BR has a few tricks up his sleeve. HH.

12.) 12 May 2017 15:49:18
Is solanke better than Griff? Or is he just promising with an inflated price tag due to the team and league he plays in . The main positive would be the cross border price like moussa.

13.) 12 May 2017 16:55:19
Bit tough to call right now Delbhoy. Like I said when Dembele signed though, give him a few years and I think he'll hit a level of player which we wouldn't be able to afford. He's got a lot of attributes I like in a lone striker. Big, powerful, good feet, comfortable all over the final third. Not a million miles from Dembele really in terms of the 'type' of forward they are. It would be a real good bit of business. Just taking Kolo of the wage bill as a player would all but cover his salary I would have thought. No brainer for me.

14.) 12 May 2017 17:42:18
LG is a proven 40 goals striker, I would keep him.
At some point the moose will move on and I can't see solanke sticking around if the reports being money motivated are true. There is a risk to keep recruitment continuous and hit the mark. I think keeping LG - who could run riot domestically wouldn't be a good move.

15.) 12 May 2017 18:18:07
Jim tim! I only asked as I only know what's been reported on solanke. Dembele scored well for Fulham and it was well documented he was in demand! But if Liverpool were offering 8 million? Then a cross border fee would be an another amazing coupe.

16.) 12 May 2017 18:28:08
Solanke can play anywhere across front 3. Watched a bit of him at Vitesse a d he's comfortable on either wing and has pace to burn

Sinclair Dembele Solanke

Subs - Griffiths Forest and potentially the Serb winger

It also gives us the option of the 3rd striker as if Dembele and Griffiths are out Solanke can move into the middle. Would be a great signing IMO.

17.) 12 May 2017 19:36:50
Sorry Ed, just getting round to reading your reply. I mentioned Aitchison just in terms if Solanke potentially not settling and not hitting the form everyone would hope, in which case I wouldn't be keen to lose a 40-goal striker unless we knew Solanke had settled well and was an able replacement.

{Ed007's Note - But that's the exact situation we ended up in this season when Dembele and Griffiths were out. I'm not saying I want LG sold but if we're targeting someone like Solanke it doesn't say much for Rodgers' thoughts on him and I can't see him being happy not even making the bench, not many strikers of LG's quality would be.}

18.) 12 May 2017 22:03:35
LG must stay. He has to be the one constant in the next 4 years. MD will be here one for season. Solanke could be similar. Think we may be getting our hopes up on Solanke in terms of ability. He's about 20 years old with about 10 goals to his name. And not like Moussa who had double that and also at a better level in the english championship. I certainly wouldn't give this guy Sinclair/ Moussa level wages.

{Ed007's Note - Neither would I mate. Yeah he deserves a few extra grand because we're getting him so cheaply but I wouldn't be spending a major piece of the wage budget on him. I'm not sure he has the right attitude to play for us, he seems a bit of a Pogba type character, all bling and his head shoved up his own ass. It's just all about the money to him and I imagine him as the total opposite of Dembele.
Rodgers knows the kid well though and if anything happens we should trust him and his staff's judgement, it could be the making of him as a man and a footballer, he'll soon get taken down a peg or two in our changing room if it's needed.}

19.) 13 May 2017 00:42:54
I just don't see the point in demoting Griffiths to third choice striker for a guy whose not really proven at any level, even the dutch league. Like you Ed I'd rather we brought in a youngster whose hungry for something other than money. Reminds me a lot of Jerome Sinclair going to Watford last year. Probably went for "first team football" when in reality he just wanted decent cash and hasn't bothered his backside getting into their that team. The fact Solanke is English puts me off too. We know they like to overrate their youngsters. Sterling and Stones being the prime examples. As long as you don't have 2 left feet you are worth at least £10m down there.

{Ed007's Note - It's a strange one and I'll be surprised if we ever find out what it would mean to LG's Hoops career if Solanke signed, RB Leipzig have shown interest and would probably be willing to pay the money he wants.
I'm probably reading too much into it but I just got a hunch if there was a deal available to sell LG Rodgers wouldn't stand in his way.}

20.) 13 May 2017 20:09:38
Just read your post about solanke and his pogba like attitude
Alarm bells of Rodgers last attempt to get the best out of this type of player balotelli
Cost him his job at Liverpool,
Is there much in the borini rumours that are circulated just now.

21.) 13 May 2017 20:12:58
Thought there was a hunite going there for gazillions of ££££.

22.) 13 May 2017 23:57:30
Has Rodgers worked with Solanke before?

23.) 14 May 2017 10:49:30
Not sure but the reports indicate he knows him from the time at Chelsea.

Down to transfer rumours, So further talks with Caulker this week?
Does anyone have any further information on Armstrongs contract situation? And also what positions does everyone think will be strengthened? I reckon first team quality CB, RW and a striker would see our squad stronger.


1.) 23 Jul 2017 15:54:34
CB definitely with Caulker looking like the man which is fine for me! Still think we will sign paddy Roberts but only if we qualify for champions league. Reckon if he shines there then he would be away next summer. Still need another striker but no idea who!

{Ed007's Note - I seen earlier that Guardiola has said youngsters at City will not be given much of an opportunity to play for the first team next season.}

2.) 23 Jul 2017 17:06:14
I just seen that ED. Patrick himself liked a link to the article on Twitter. Surely he will come round? I'm feeling optimistic about paddy being a Celtic player. Are you anywhat confident in this ED?

{Ed007's Note - I am mate, not overly confident but I've always said I thought he would end up back here if a deal with City could be done.}

3.) 23 Jul 2017 21:22:42
Most important is a goal keeper!



12 Jul 2017 12:35:13
ED's I take it that will be the last of any transfers until after the Group Stages are confirmed or do you know of any other progress with players?


{Ed007's Note - I'll be surprised if anyone else is brought in before then after what Rodgers said last week and I think the next week or two will be spent on getting players moved on. Espanyol have came back in for Bitton btw.}

1.) 12 Jul 2017 13:15:35
Think moving Bitton on is a must along with a few others possibly on loan. The Armstrong matter is worrying as I feel he is a top player and must be kept. Goal scorring midfielders are difficult to come by so i hope he's still in the hoops for a few more years.

{Ed007's Note - Espanyol bid 5 million Euros for Bitton in January, if we could get that from them now it would be a cracking bit of business and would cover what we paid for Ntcham.}

2.) 12 Jul 2017 14:57:53
Going into the qualifiers with Erik and Jozo with only an untried Ajer and out of position Lustig as backup isn't ideal.

{Ed007's Note - I forgot about that, Kev, yeah I think there might be a CB brought in maybe even just a loan.}

3.) 12 Jul 2017 15:47:00
Toure on a new one-year deal maybe?

{Ed007's Note - Another year older and another year fatter, no thanks from me, Kev.}

4.) 12 Jul 2017 15:53:31
Ntcham as untried as ajer?

5.) 12 Jul 2017 16:45:11
Young Chelsea Boy? Is he not a centre back?

{Ed007's Note - Kyle Jameson - I don't think he would be up to it yet. He's only 18 and up until January when he joined Chelsea he was playing for Southport Under 18s and he only played 4 or 5 games for Cheslea Under 18s since joining them. It would be a huge risk imo.}

6.) 12 Jul 2017 17:49:34
If we had to call on one of our youngsters would defintely go with either Ajer or McCart over Jameson at the moment. Ajer 16 appearances for Kilmarnock, McCart 11 appearances for ICT. That experience will be essential if either are called upon. Don't want to see either sitting on our bench though hoping both go out on loan again and get plenty game time to develop their skills and decision making as CB's.



10 Jul 2017 10:10:23
I can't see dembele leaving this window unless He is offered his guarantees. Also I reckon a CB will be fast tracked as Boyata is injured, hopefully duverne chooses us over Lille if the rumours are true that we have had bids accepted. In the RW position i think it will be later in the window before we sign anyone due to Hayes coming in as cover. Still feel we need a 3rd striker.




09 Jul 2017 17:54:57
What do people reckon, How many more signings will be brought in? I reckon another 2. Still early doors in the transfer market. And what positions will be tackled? Still looking for that right winger.


1.) 09 Jul 2017 18:33:26
Unless big ajer is a revelation at cb we need another cb. and a striker as I think it's a case of when and not if he leaves with dembele.

2.) 09 Jul 2017 18:51:03
we need a left footed CB perhaps Rannochia from Inter could be persuaded to come but for sure we need a left sided CB.

3.) 09 Jul 2017 20:09:46
Thought he looked pretty decent at hull Big D, available for 4 mill apparently.

4.) 10 Jul 2017 14:29:32
rumours roberts on the way back.



29 Jun 2017 22:25:41
Anyone taking guesses on who this strong and powerful signing Rodgers speaks of? Could be someone completely out of the blue.


1.) 30 Jun 2017 06:44:35
As long as he's not 'out the blue half of the city'

2.) 30 Jun 2017 19:10:04
I think the signing today will be the last before the CL qualifiers.

3.) 30 Jun 2017 19:11:39
Think he's got him with the signing today BR did say hopefully one in before CL games so think he's got him.

4.) 30 Jun 2017 19:13:21
My educated guesses would be Duverne or Plavsic (still hasn't actually signed fir Sparta? ) . My out of the blue guess, even though he mainly plays on the left, would be Choupo-Moting on a free.

5.) 01 Jul 2017 10:41:00
more chance of anton rogan.

Of course it is! Some of us just enjoy the football and love the club without getting involved in the political side of it. Each to there own in my opinion. I just want to see the club progress, our club is one of the greatest on the planet and we should be at the top level. I hope this comes true once again one day.

Milan are looking at multiple options are they not ED? I'm sure Belloti is there No1 target, don't know if Milan will offer him First Team football or not? To be honest Milan are really on an Uprise, I think they will be a force in the next few seasons. Looks like a really well put together squad so far. All thanks to the money they have at there hands.


{Ed007's Note - I think it's Belloti and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who are their main targets but Torino are trying to get Belotti to sign a new deal and the PEA deal is proving to be a nightmare.}

Forrest had a good first half of the season even ED007 agreed at the time and we all know his take on "Florist" 😂😂. But I just don't think he is consistent enough. He's definitely improved as a player under Rodgers but he isn't our answer to a RW. When there is better out there even at a lower cost than PR.

I think everyone is underestimating Ajer a bit. Played a good amount of football in Sweden from a young age. What is it, over 50 appearances? Plus Roseborg are not the side they used to be. Hate to say it but I think Bendtner will be a problem, luckily he mucks up a lot of chances.
