Lots of chatter online about a move being completed for Greg Taylor next week for £900k.

kevbhoy i always love your intelligence. but is this what we have to look forward to?


2.) 11 Aug 2019 21:37:33
Robroy he’s a good player and good back up for elhamad?


3.) 11 Aug 2019 21:40:02
Nope Duff and Phelps he is a LB not a RB.


4.) 11 Aug 2019 21:46:19
Back up for elmahad? He’s a left back.


5.) 11 Aug 2019 21:50:52
Greg Taylor is s left back duff?


6.) 11 Aug 2019 21:54:38
Duff, Taylor is a left back. If we really wanted him he would have been signed long before now. He’s a decent player from the little I have seen. I was hoping for better as our second LB.


7.) 11 Aug 2019 22:13:26
Duff he's the left back. O'Donnell is the RB.


8.) 11 Aug 2019 22:21:12
He would be a good buy.


9.) 11 Aug 2019 22:23:22
He's a left back dap.


10.) 11 Aug 2019 22:32:17
I don't know an awful lot about him tbh. I don't remember really noticing him for good or bad when we've played Killie but he seems to be very highly rated.


11.) 11 Aug 2019 22:45:33
He's a lb so it's back up for boli.


12.) 11 Aug 2019 23:03:03
Taylor is a left back so why would he be a good back up to elhamed.


13.) 11 Aug 2019 23:04:04
He’s a left back so back up to Boli, we will end up spending 1-2 m on both Killie fullbacks that’ll be us finished 😂.


14.) 11 Aug 2019 23:08:50
Taylor has been excellent for Killie for the last few years. If he was called Gregorio Tayloroso and played for a Serie A team and Italy we'd be hailing him as a star. Would KT have been better than him if he'd played for Killie? Why shouldn't we sign him? Playing for a bigger club could very well turn him into a great player so why not us? I'd be all for it. HH.


15.) 11 Aug 2019 23:41:45
He not the one that belted Barton about 6 foot in the air?


16.) 12 Aug 2019 08:16:50
Wires crossed gents do apologise.


17.) 12 Aug 2019 10:30:43
Taylor is a left back so he won’t be back up to Elhamed! Call me cynical but selling KT for 25 million and bringing in Greg Taylor from Kilmarnock won't make our team stronger! If this is lennons ‘contingency plan’ then we’re short changed big time!

I've seen reports that Celtic were offered Joe Aribo and that's as far as it went. I've also seen reports that we were beaten to his signature by Rangers (his name was on the leaked list) . I've now seen a report that we are trying to ambush Rangers' move for him at the last minute. It just shows you that the media can and will say anything no matter whether there's any truth in it or not.

Kevbhoy

1.) 17 Jun 2019 19:05:24
It's media spin same as turnbull wanting 20k how do they know it bull.


2.) 17 Jun 2019 19:11:30
@Kevbhoy pay no attention to the papers pal
If we were not prepared to pay £20k for Turnbull, our board will NOT pay that or more for Aribo.
It is just the usual sevconian press gagging to write
"Celtic outbid by Sevco for wonderkid"
We have our own targets.


3.) 17 Jun 2019 19:49:02
Is this the same guy who's manager has just quit? Club are looking for a new guy? Player won't be going anywhere till he sees if he is wanted and gets a new deal a think.


4.) 17 Jun 2019 19:52:24
Tim difference is you get Aribo for free like they did with Dembele. He got a higher wage because of that.


5.) 18 Jun 2019 07:54:40
Kev83 "LIKE THEY DID" true colours showing through there kev.

I don't know why everyone is convinced Lennon won't be backed by Lawwell. Last season we spent "£9M" on Eddy and Castagne told the press we bid £8M for him in January but Atalanta blocked the move. Ok, we sh*t the bed with McGinn but that seems like it was more down to arrogance than an unwillingness to spend. We also spent another £4M on Shved and Bayo. He can be extremely frustrating but he won't just refuse to spend any money on players.

Kevbhoy

1.) 03 Jun 2019 08:27:16
My thoughts are that he seems to faff about putting in stupid offers for too long and missing out on players instead of putting in a decent offer and getting the deal done, other clubs identify players and go and sign them, with Peter Lawwell everything turns into a saga, we need to hit the ground running next season by getting our business done and getting the new players integrated as quickly as possible .


2.) 03 Jun 2019 09:17:27
Yeah i think Lawwell gets too much bad press, i mean look at how stable a club we are financially with him at the helm. He obviously knows what he is doing better than we do and i certainly think he has the clubs best intrest at heart (i do disagree with some of his decisions though) and we all need to get behind the manager now and be as positive as possible. No point giving the press any ammo with being negative about our own club.


3.) 03 Jun 2019 09:18:33
Yeah and sold Armstrong for £7m and Dembele for £20m. Think we got another £6m or something for Van Dijk sell on so took in £33m and spent £13m.
We can’t splash any cash as our wage bill is £54m failure to qualify for Champions league cost us £30m if we don’t get there next season how do we pay wage bill?
Thankfully we had decent run in Europa and got about £10m back with prize money for treble about another £4-5m and the £20m profit on player sales gave us a £5-10m profit.
We won’t be getting £27m in player sales this summer unless we sell 2-3 of our best players. If we qualify for Champions league we will be able to afford a couple of top players.
Ntcham can go for £7m IMO to free up more cash, yes we are stable financially but not cash rich unless we make Champions league group stage it will guarantee the 10 if we do this season.


4.) 03 Jun 2019 09:32:19
Because that was under Rodgers and not Lennon. Lawwell knew Rodgers held the cards, if he didn’t get the funds or players he wanted he would have plenty of other options. Lennon tried that one already and ended up at Bolton then Hibs. He has already said now he’d love to stay at Celtic for 20 years (because no one else will have him) .

So let’s say Lawwell only gave Lennon £3m to spend, what leverage does Lennon have to change that? Zero.


5.) 03 Jun 2019 10:13:06
GGGG if we want the £30m CL we need to give ourselves a chance of making it, no one is advocating bursting the bank but we need to build on successes to keep moving forward our board don’t tend to do that, sometimes you need to speculate to accumulate .


6.) 03 Jun 2019 13:27:02
The wage bill will be significantly down this summer though with all the outs we may be trimming about £8-10m off it depending on who else goes/ sold.


 

 

13 May 2019 22:21:53
Silly season is officially up and running! We're signing Moussa Marega from Porto - valued at £25M. Tbf I'd take him 100% if there was any truth in it.

Kevbhoy

1.) 14 May 2019 05:42:02
To be fair to the Board Kev, he'll fit in great with Messi and Aguero. Maybe they'll all arrive on the same plane together. HH.

There are rumours that PL is about to reject our Ibrox allocation. As I don't go to away games, I've not read much about this and I'm not fully up on the logistics of the tickets being cut. Why is it a safety concern for us if we're being given the same number of tickets as other clubs?

I see no reason why we can't still go out and buy Gumny, Melling, Cifuentes and any other player we're interested in. If any of them would knock us back due to last night then they're not the type of players we need. Instead of being doom and gloom let's be proactive for once and try to right the wrongs now rather than waiting to try and paper over the cracks in January.

Kevbhoy

1.) 14 Aug 2019 16:08:16
I hear the transfer budget has been curtailed. If it is there's going to be a backlash from the fans. The GB will no doubt have a banner accusing the Board of negligence and they are only intrested in their bonuses. Brown saying sorry and all the players are behind Lennon. Collecting Tens of thousands per week softens the blow for them. Whilst the fans pay Tens of thousands over the years following the club everywhere and are rewarded with that guff on the park. Bin this museum/ hotel idea and get the money spent on decent players on the park. Ed 007 said a while back he won't be bothering with it all this year. Correctamundo as the downsizing and ignoring the glaring positions that needed sorted has us going backwards.


2.) 14 Aug 2019 16:19:12
Although the CL is a big attraction and incentive for many players, others see Celtic as at best a world famous institution or at worse a stepping-stone to the English league. What we badly need are hungry, committed quality additions that can lift and improve us. Of course they have to know that they are behind guys like Morgan and MJ ha ha.


3.) 14 Aug 2019 16:20:52
It's a hard blow to take but it's done now. I'm still mystified about Calmac at lb. I'm no football tactical genius but what was our actual game plan. Couldn't watch it because I was at work. Were we unlucky or just out muscled?


4.) 14 Aug 2019 16:42:37
Bribhoy there were maybe some minor elements of bad luck about it but the main issue was Lennon trying to be smart. That's the bottom line. If he had played the same team as he did over there we'd have went through last night. Boli might well have had a few hairy moments but he'd have been better at LB than McGregor and McGregor could have done a lot more to help the team from his actual position. I'm still reeling. I haven't been this angry about a result for a long, long time.


5.) 14 Aug 2019 16:55:10
Rosenberg got thru to the next round last night.


6.) 14 Aug 2019 18:23:32
We're still a far bigger attraction than Rosenborg regardless.


 

 

14 Aug 2019 00:07:54
Champions League exit may curtail Celtic's transfer activity, says Lennon 😂😂😂 What an absolute disgrace.

Kevbhoy

1.) 14 Aug 2019 06:01:42
Surprise surprise. Our transfer activity has been curtailed since we spent £12 million on 3 defenders only for £10 millions worth of that to be sat on the bench last night and not even make it off it. Absolute shambles. Why a proper LB wasn’t signed god only knows as if bolingoli is the proper LB then why wasn’t he on that park last night with Lennon sticking by his signing? £7 million for jullien, celtics second biggest outlay on a player and struggling big time to command a place in that team. Morgan, not his fault last night but no ones going to convince me he’s the standard needed at Celtic for that level. That was the third out of 4 qualifiers last night and we only had 1 new addition to the squad playing. yet again another season goes by were we’re trying to negotiate these ties with our hands tied behind our backs getting put out by average teams. Totally unacceptable. All the criticism, frustration and anger that is coming lennon and the boards direction is fully justified. We lost KT, our best LB in god knows how many years and it looks like we’ve replaced him with a guy that Lennon signed and doesn’t trust. That’s not good enough. When you sign a £7 million player in jullien I think In Scottish football terms u expect him to be a starter every week, spent most his time so far on the bench, not good enough. And now we’re getting told the transfer activity could be curtailed? Well that certainly isn’t good enough. The board took the decision to appoint Lennon, the cheap option. I’ve woken this morning and the firmest thing to enter my head is the same thing that was in it when I went to bed. why the f##k was Callum McGregor playing LB last night?


2.) 14 Aug 2019 06:11:01
If that's true about transfer plans being curtailed then the board need sacking.


3.) 14 Aug 2019 07:40:41
Lennon has already came out with his defence of the McGregor fiasco. Apparently it was ok because he didn't cause all the goals. Does he think we're complete idiots? If you play our best CM out of position you lose his ability to be the focal point and orchestrate our play. We need to rid ourselves of the ridiculous notion that McGregor is a utility man. I'm absolutely scunnered this morning and can't understand why £10m worth of defenders sat on the bench last night.


 

 

12 Aug 2019 13:54:38
My team for Tuesday:

Bain
Elhamed Ajer Jullien Bolongoli
Brown McGregor
Forrest Christie Johnston
Eddy

If we cut out the daft mistakes at the back and get at them from the off we could go through very comfortably with the way we've been attacking.

Kevbhoy

1.) 12 Aug 2019 15:33:24
Yea hopefully lol but captain Morgan might be getting ahead of Mikey if he hurrys up and finishes the rest of Lennon’s dirty dishes.


2.) 12 Aug 2019 17:16:55
Jozo will play.
If Elhamed is fit, then Jullian will miss out.
If Johnston is fit, he will play.
Lenny’s team
Bain
Elhamed. Ajar. Jozo. Boli.
Brown. McGregor
Forrest. Christie. Johnston
Edouard.


3.) 12 Aug 2019 17:39:04
Jozo deserves to be playing ahead of Julien. Plus James forrest is a Celtic Legend and Boli is still pish.


 

 

10 Aug 2019 14:26:22
As things stand, Ajer must be the number one CB and the rest are fighting for the other jersey. Griff and Eddy are bringing out the best in each other as well. Let's use the next 3 weeks to strengthen and build on a squad already littered with quality. HH.

Kevbhoy

 

 

07 Aug 2019 17:36:16
I really hope Lennon doesn't stifle the team by setting up too defensively. It's a tough tie on paper but if the team performs anywhere close to Saturday's levels we'll take a few off Cluj and IMO we should be targeting a couple of valuable away goals.

@KenLikeEh, Lenny has said recently that he likes Ntcham in a more advanced role so I reckon McGregor will sit beside Brown.

@Dd1888 you're spot on to point out that we need to dust ourselves off and move on but you're also advocating just turning a blind eye to a disgraceful team selection and result which was compounded by a lack of ambition yet again. That's 2 seasons in a row and I can guarantee if we do it all over again next summer folk will be on here giving it the exact same chat. I personally wouldn't sack Lennon after Tuesday but I also don't think he should have been appointed in the first place. Fans who hold the club's hierarchy to account for consistent failures aren't the ones who need to have a look at themselves, it's the ones who are happy to accept mediocrity so long as things aren't as bad as the 90's and we can stay one step ahead of Rangers. Tuesday night is history as you say but we need to analyse and learn from it rather than just forgetting about it because it's not a one off.

The hotel is a good idea on paper because anything which brings alternative income and reduces our dependency on CL money should be welcomed. Unfortunately, until such times as we are in that position, CL qualification is essential for us to progress as a club and the team on the pitch shouldn't be sacrificed to accommodate these ventures.

This reaction has been building up over some time and I've noticed some fans who normally try to be pragmatic just really fed up and disgusted about the absolute contempt we're treated with in return for our loyalty.

Christie played brilliant football from CM last season. Christie and McGregor with Ntcham just ahead is probably the best midfield we could put on a pitch.
