that team looks set up for a draw, Kev; what do you reckon? Need a bit more up top that Jamesy and Mousse.



03 Feb 2018 10:46:10
Social media rumours of Hendry and Musonda starting today. Not sure who would drop out for Musonda but Hendry would make sense as we usually don't risk Jozo on that pitch.




26 Jan 2018 10:07:41
£12m from Brighton is the bid being reported as the one we knocked back for Dembele. If so, it's nice to hear BR say that's nowhere near his value. Personally I wouldn't entertain a penny less than £20m, and at that price I'd want a nice sell-on clause as well. Time to play hardball with these jokers, especially when you look at the boy they've just spent £14m on.


1.) 26 Jan 2018 11:42:06
Theres bang average players going for more than 20 mill time to dig our heels in with these English charlatans look how big Virgil panned out we knew his worth but he had to go to England to merit the huge fee.

2.) 26 Jan 2018 12:26:10
To be fair Locadia is a great player and a snip for £14m considering the pish some of the English players are going for. But £12m is an insult and total waste of time I don't even get why they would waste their time bidding £12m when it has been well publicised that we was valuing him around £30m.

3.) 26 Jan 2018 19:18:35
Surely every club starts low when bidding for any player just to see the reaction. Basic haggling. going by what Rodgers has said it'll need to be a crazy bid to get him in this window.



10 Jan 2018 16:34:59
Jozo now being linked with Lazio as well as multiple EPL teams. I know it's only speculation atm but it's reaffirming my opinion that I'd much rather keep him than Boyata (who nobody seems interested in taking off our hands) .


1.) 10 Jan 2018 16:57:47
Kevbhoy, I don't think Jozo is much use to us . He is as unreliable if not more so than any other centre half we have on the pitch . He is also unreliable off the pitch as it seems he claims injury at the drop of a hat.

2.) 10 Jan 2018 17:20:10
I prefer him to Boyata but would preferably upgrade both by the start of next season in all honesty.

3.) 10 Jan 2018 17:44:24
Ideally, a new guy to play alongside Ajer for me. If we received several million for Jozo, I think it would be best to cash in. That's what tips it for me as I'm pretty torn on who I would like to see stay out of the two (Jozo better prospect, but in practice I think Boyata has actually been the better of the two) . As you say Kev, based on paper-talk there seems to be less interest in Boyata and I don't see room for both long term, so the sensible thing to do would be sell the player with the best offer.

4.) 10 Jan 2018 17:50:59
I couldn’t believe we signed Boyata in the first place, he had several loan moves to English clubs including Bolton when Lenny was manager and not one of them wanted to sign him, Jozo is made of chocolate, nowhere near strong or tough enough for a centre back, we need to sign another quality centre back .

The performance today was very flat. We were getting much more joy in the first half because they were committing bodies forward but they became very defensive and hard to break down after the sending off, which was one of the softest I've seen. Put it behind us and move on to the next one. HH.


{Ed007's Note - I still can't see why Kipre was sent off, Kev.}

1.) 18 Mar 2018 22:05:47
He was silly and the ref made an asss of it thinking he kicked brown.

{Ed007's Note - I can't see why Brown's getting the blame for it either right enough.}

2.) 18 Mar 2018 22:07:12
It spoiled what was an end to end game until that point.

{Ed007's Note - Murderwell camped in for the second half and we just couldn't break them down, at times we spend too much time trying to walk the ball in for my liking when we should be bombarding balls into the opposition's box.}

3.) 18 Mar 2018 22:24:10
There were chances for balls to be squared rogic and Sinclair but at the same time carson was good can see why rodgers wanted to sign him.

{Ed007's Note - Sinclair made the wrong choice there, Sammy. Maybe he was trying too hard to get a goal for himself to boost his confidence rather than see the bigger picture.}

4.) 18 Mar 2018 23:34:38
Just seen the highlights Scott Brown had a wee dig at Kipre with his arm and Kipre had a wee retaliation a la Beckham, a sort of backheeler, wouldn't have amounted to much but one of the officials seen it,9 times out of ten, it wouldn't have raised an eyebrow,

{Ed007's Note - It's the raised eyebrows we need to keep an eye on.}

5.) 18 Mar 2018 22:33:37
Was thinking that myself although I do think Rogic should've squared for dembele as well with correct decisions today dembele could have had a few tap ins.

6.) 19 Mar 2018 11:24:23
I was thinking the initial challenge from kipre was a bad one, looked to go right over the ball, but i think his reputation git him the red more than anything else.

7.) 19 Mar 2018 13:13:49
i said during the game it was handbags, a bit of big girls blousing by both players and the game shouldn't have even been stopped, its a mans game get on with it its a contact sport, it wasnt a full on boot.

8.) 19 Mar 2018 15:31:37
A good referee would have given them a talking to, and told them to shake hands and just get on with the game, .

9.) 19 Mar 2018 19:46:17
Red card for the kick out and the ref caught it, it's not the ferocity of the challenge, but the intent to lash out, (intent) .

Broony did not help things with his reaction, but if it was the other way round, then the other player would still be rolling about and broony off.

The ref dammed of he does and dammed if he does not, in all fairness yellow each. ( depends who you support ) .

10.) 19 Mar 2018 22:23:36
If You feel Jozo deserved a red consistency on your behalf would mean Kiprie would have to go this week . Similarly if you thought Jozo was unlucky and shouldn't have got red then neither should Kiprie .



17 Mar 2018 13:38:56
I think Ralston going to Dundee Utd is a great move. It's a lower level so it'll be easier to get back into the swing of things plus he'll get way more minutes than he would here. They're still in the hunt for promotion so there will still be pressure to get results. Hopefully he'll get up to speed and come back fit and raring for preseason. Win-Win.


1.) 17 Mar 2018 21:15:45
Kevbhoy, you are right, the competition for right back at Celtic is probably too great for a rookie right back returning from so long out for him to get much playing time.



14 Mar 2018 09:33:49
With Scott Bain looking good at the weekend I'd definitely keep him between the sticks until he does something worthy of being dropped. In the summer, keeper-wise, I'd 100% let DDV go and then it depends on what BR thinks about Bain and Gordon. If we go out and buy a new keeper I'd like somebody like Yann Sommer. He's under 30, experienced first pick international, played in Bundesliga and CL. Probably out of our price range as he's still got a couple of years left on his deal but someone of that ilk.


1.) 14 Mar 2018 13:03:56
Would release Dorus definitely, but would also, happily let Gordon 'retire at the top' with his medals and go with Bain - if he proves himself, plus another keeper in the summer.

2.) 14 Mar 2018 14:07:14
gordon will play in the semi, bain is cup-tied.

3.) 14 Mar 2018 14:50:08
Is Gordon due to be fit by then?

4.) 14 Mar 2018 17:59:08
hes in full training kev.

5.) 14 Mar 2018 18:38:15
Don't think Bain is cup tied
Never played a game for hibs and was out the Dundee team since November.

6.) 14 Mar 2018 21:42:04
He hasn’t played in the Scottish Cup this season do don’t see why he couldn’t play in the semi.

7.) 15 Mar 2018 18:28:43
just checked kev bain ok to play but hendry isn't.

8.) 16 Mar 2018 21:09:54
I don't think Hendry will be in goals anyway.
Bain did exceptionally well and I think he will get a wee run in goals to see if he can play well consistently. I have seen keepers come in and do great for a game or two and then their standards can slip.



12 Mar 2018 11:09:41
I posted last week and said that when the chips are down Dembele would step up and show who the man is and he did that yesterday. Didn't have his best game ever but stuck the ball away when it mattered, unlike El Gruffalo.


{Ed007's Note - I see Dembele's been called up to the French squad for their upcoming friendlies. I thought he had a great game yesterday playing the lone striker, are you forgetting his exquisite pass to set up Edouard too?}

1.) 12 Mar 2018 11:35:20
That’s brilliant news! Odd considering his form last season and he couldn’t get a call up. I was very impressed but I just remember his touch being a bit heavy at times when we needed a breather. Hopefully now the “debate” will be put to bed.

2.) 12 Mar 2018 11:41:14
Twas a smashing pass! I sometimes think the gaffer gives him a tough job, playing this 1 attacker thing. Edouard was something else again when he came on tho. Would love to see these two starting regularly. I was quite skeptical about the lad, but I think I'd take a punt on him now.

3.) 12 Mar 2018 11:47:21
Spot on Ed. I thought Dembele played great and was very unselfish. His work rate was excellent and he pressed their defence well.

The big thing is he timed his run and finished exquisitely. Very clever player.

4.) 12 Mar 2018 12:33:14
Edouarde has had very limited game time, but when he is asked to do a job he never let's us down and some of his goals are real quality.
I appreciate we would never spend the apparent asking price of £7m on one player, but I would love us to negotiate a deal to keep him here next season at least - especially if Moussa is leaving?

5.) 12 Mar 2018 13:33:17
Why would we never though OaB? PL has said himself we could. And if we did sell Dembele, what would you say? 15, 20, 25 million? If we sold one striker for that much and still weren't prepared to spend 7 on a replacement it would stink something rotten.

6.) 12 Mar 2018 17:21:39
7 million will be money well spent. The lads still in his teens and has massive potential under Rodgers. Moussa will go in the summer and hopefully the big man makes the French world cup squad and generate 1 hell of a transfer fee for us.



11 Mar 2018 20:35:21
Not the best performance from us today but a win and 3 points killing the "title race". A good days work. HH.


1.) 11 Mar 2018 21:32:55
Not the best performance! Really hope your fishing.

I didn’t consider his contract to be fair but even using £4.5M as an example, it’s been 10 years since the last time we paid Ntcham money. If the board are willing to spend that kind of figure more regularly then great but I have my doubts about that. I actually haven’t seen Gunn play so don’t know if he would ideal but I’d like to see a new first pick brought in.


{Ed007's Note - I don't see why the board wouldn't be willing to pay £4+ million regularly on players if it's the player the manager wants and I wouldn't be at all surprised to see us break our transfer record this summer.
We definitely need to address the GK situation this summer, Bain will be signed on a free which is a bargain but for me he should be our No.2 to hopefully a new No.1. Would you keep Bain in goal even when Gordon is fit again? I would.
I watched Stevie Woods interview on CelticTV at half-time yesterday and I'm sure he said that he had recommended Bain to Rodgers when they were discussing new 'keepers and then he kind of added at the end once Craig Gordon had got injured... it was the way he said it - or I've picked it up wrong - that he had let slip they've been discussing 'keepers for a while.}

I'd say Gunn is definitely hotter property atm but I take your point Ed. I still don't think City would be willing to let him go for anything within our budget when there are PL teams rumoured to be in for him.


{Ed007's Note - They sold us Ntcham - who had played circa 50 games in Serie A and had other options - for £4.5 million. Gunn's played 43 games for a team sitting in 15th place in the English second division and conceded 50 goals and managed 15 clean sheets. That's his career to date and you think Man City will ask for crazy money for him, I'm actually surprised that any EPL team would want him as their No.1 just now, it would be a massive risk to take.
Btw, I don't think anyone will buy him this summer, if anything I think it'll be a loan and then after that Gunn only has a year on his City contract. I think it would help our chances of getting him if his dad can talk him into choosing to play for Scotland.}

I'm not saying they'll demand that exact amount Ed but these things usually have a domino effect. The Mbappe fee you mentioned wouldn't have been as high without the Neymar fee for instance. My point is that if Sunderland got that much for Pickford then I don't see City valuing Gunn at a price we could afford.


{Ed007's Note - Pickford going to Everton has got nothing to do with Man City or Angus Gunn the same as the Mbappe fee had nothing to do with Neymar apart from PSG couldn't pay for Mbappe without seriously breaching FFP Regs. There was no actual transfer fee as such paid for Neymar, the player and his legal team bought out his contract at Barca by paying the full release clause and he technically signed for PSG as a free agent.
Going by your logic Liverpool will be asking for the same kind of money as Pickford for Danny Ward.}

Sunderland and Everton have set the precedent with the £30M Pickford move (Martin Bain played an absolute blinder with that one btw) . City would therefore be quite right to demand the going rate for an English youth International keeper.


{Ed007's Note - Does that mean Monaco and PSG have set the precedent for young French strikers by paying £166 million for Mbappe? How much should we be asking for Dembele then?
Sadly transfer fees don't work like that, Kev.}

I don’t see why people think £7m is so steep for Edouard. He’s shown flashes of real talent on an inconsistent basis, which is what you get with teenagers, otherwise PSG would be playing him and not forking our £150m on one of the few teenagers who are consistent at a high level. Dembele has shown inconsistency this season yet in January most of us ridiculed a rumoured transfer offer of £18m.
