Filip Benkovic is a name that refuses to go away. Sure I read that Zagreb want £20M but have no European revenue this season so surely that would lower his price into the category of "the money is available for the right player".


1.) 15 Nov 2017 17:58:35
Would be a massive coup if we landed him kev, think he’s the sort of player that would take us forward. But with today’s inflated market you could see the likes of WestBrom etc paying the 20m for a player of his standard. Here’s hoping though.



13 Nov 2017 15:56:07
We're being linked to 20 year old Ukranian striker Artem Dovbyk who has scored 12 goals in 12 games for Dnipro in the Ukranian 2nd Division. His contract is up in December so would be free.


1.) 13 Nov 2017 22:27:35
There was a link to his goals in one of the Celtic blog sites. Even with the wonders of YouTube I didn't see enough to warrant taking him on board. If we are going to play 2 up front then yeah we need 4/ 5 strikers. If we are going down that route then I'd want a higher calibre of player brought in. If we get a shot at the El I don't think we will be playing 2 anyway. I'd like the wages and cash spent elsewhere.

2.) 13 Nov 2017 22:41:04
I can’t see us paying the money for Edouard tbh rglen8 but I don’t see much in this guy either like you say. We’ll probably be looking for a permanent third choice striker at some point but I’d like to see Aitchison given more of a chance soon.

3.) 14 Nov 2017 10:03:53
Voted best young Ukrainian player 2016/ 17, and called up to the Ukraine national squad, if Brendan does want him, and he is free then why not take a chance, never know he could be the next big thing.

4.) 15 Nov 2017 22:33:10
Possible replacement for moussa? I reckon there will be bids in January. Just a hunch.



29 Aug 2017 12:36:32
One rumour going around today is Valentin Stocker who plays mainly as a left winger. Don't see much logic in that unless he can be utilised as a striker too. And suggestions of a CB from City, maybe Denayer? I expect a lot of names to be flying about the place over the next couple of days so fingers crossed we get the guys we're really after. HH.


1.) 29 Aug 2017 13:58:57
I heard he's been playing in behind a striker No10 for the past couple of seasons. He's played a lot of football and at a high enough standard so might be a challenger for Rogic if that's the case! Need a CB though!

2.) 29 Aug 2017 14:17:57
Last thing we need is another midfielder surely. We've got McGregor for that position too and Paddy can play off the striker too. CB has to be the absolute top priority.

3.) 29 Aug 2017 14:22:46
He can play wide number 10 or striker according to few reports I have read.

4.) 29 Aug 2017 14:57:20
If we bring in a winger/ striker, we might ship out benyu or as reported by a garbage site that Cardiff want to loan Hayes.



21 Aug 2017 10:32:16
When the story first broke I assumed it was just to fill column inches, but reports are claiming a move for Coetzee is going ahead. I'm surprised that we're not linked with somebody with more European pedigree but as I've never seen him play I have to trust the scouts and the management.


1.) 21 Aug 2017 11:32:14
He is injured now.

2.) 21 Aug 2017 11:34:35
Yeah I read that but the South African press are still saying he's flying to Glasgow to finalise a move.

3.) 21 Aug 2017 15:04:40
Doubt it will be a goer if scans come back saying he's tore his hamstring?




4.) 22 Aug 2017 13:52:45
done deal.



15 Aug 2017 18:35:08
Chris Sutton has just claimed live on BT that he has it on good authority Roberts will be our player, possibly even by tonight's deadline.


1.) 15 Aug 2017 18:55:31
Just seen that myself Kevbhoy, fingers crossed.

2.) 15 Aug 2017 18:56:18
Seen that Kev, don't think he would be saying that if there was nothing in it?

3.) 15 Aug 2017 19:04:14
Yea Kev, he said he had it on good authourity that Paddy will sign before the deadline tonight.
Strange, i thought he was away with Man C.

4.) 15 Aug 2017 19:06:37
All the way to Spain and never even got on as a sub . Come on wee man get it sorted . First time poster.

5.) 15 Aug 2017 19:28:36
if he's not even a sub could he be on the way BACK TO PARADISE

Come home paddy . The Celts are Calling.

6.) 15 Aug 2017 19:31:49
See the picture wi him cupping his ears 😂😂.

7.) 15 Aug 2017 19:34:05
He was an unused sub . They got best 1-0 . When is the first flight to glesga Al even pay for it.

8.) 15 Aug 2017 19:34:59
He is in Spain so getting back to Glasgow tonight in time to sign surely isn't possible. However, could he sign remotely Ed given the modern technology available? Am I right in thinking that the only part of a deal a player would physically need to be there for is the medical? Given he's been our player for 18 months I'd doubt he'd need a stringent medical.

{Ed007's Note - Paperwork can be done by e-mail or believe it or not the fax is still used a lot in football.}

9.) 15 Aug 2017 19:36:02
Doesn't need t be here to sigh. Can do it by fax.

10.) 15 Aug 2017 19:39:28
Hope this isn't another red herring ma hert canny handle this what a lift for tomorrow night if it happens.

11.) 15 Aug 2017 19:44:54
Just saw the news too Kev. Fingers crossed that it's true and paddy in on a plane on his way back home.

12.) 15 Aug 2017 19:46:19
Jesus I hope this is true. Now to get Stuart Armstrong to sign a deal. If it is 2 years so be it. I would be absolutely delighted if we could get those two sorted. It would be the kickstart we need to get a bit of last season's momentum back.

13.) 15 Aug 2017 20:35:42
I asked you yesterday Ed if he'd sign in the next 48 hours and you said no. With 3 hours to go are you sticking with that? I think you'll be right unfortunately.

{Ed007's Note - I'll stick with that but I'll happily be wrong about it.}

14.) 15 Aug 2017 23:02:49
Reports on celtic transfer news now say paddy will not be signed tonight. Fxxk sake! Unless anyone has good news on it.

15.) 16 Aug 2017 00:01:11
I know Ed. The celtic board have once again let down the loyal and best supporters in the world. Signing one player of quality who is still raw and two average players that are spl standard! So annoyed at the minute. If this costs us they better have some answers as to why nothing happened.

{Ed007's Note - Every manager spins the same lines about getting players in early and ready for the CL qualifiers yet against Rosenborg the only new signig that started was Hayes and he onoy started because Dembele and LG were out.
I'm still confident of CL qualification though.}

Domestically we've been brilliant since BR came in and that is to be revered 100% but in Europe it's been shocking at times. Getting beat 7-0, 5-0 and 7-1 just isn't on and you can say what you like about PSG's money or whatever but that's always been the case, and let's not forget we have a bit of money too. Not to the same extent but we have enough to go out and get 2 right good centre halves and a goalkeeper. Ok we'll still lose to the PSG's of this world but maybe by 1, 2 or even 3 goals - not 5, 6 or 7.


1.) 22 Nov 2017 22:02:54
That PSG team will win it imo.

2.) 22 Nov 2017 22:03:04
beat 1 2 3 or 5 6 7 = 3 points to the opposition, that all that matters.

3.) 22 Nov 2017 22:12:18
Agree with that Kev. However good they are doesn't hide the fact our defending tonight was shocking. UEFA would be as well holding an 8 team tournament for teams that have spent over 500 million assembling their teams and let them fight it out. C'mon Pedro get the appeal in and get them on the Fifa fair play rule and get them kicked out. 🤣🤣🤣.

4.) 22 Nov 2017 22:24:44
Digibanger that’s nonsense mate, of course the nature of defeat matters. If you have a good defence you may still lose the game but you go into it thinking you might give yourself a chance if you can nick something up the other end. This PSG team are an extreme example but we could have beaten Bayern at home if we had a good defence and be looking to have a run deep into the EL. Can you see that happening with Bitton, Jozo or Boyata at CB and Gordon in goal?

5.) 22 Nov 2017 22:43:55
Couldn't agree more with everything you said kev. Getting beaten by a Barcelona, PSG, Munich etc is no disgrace given the financial gulf between them and us. What i do find unacceptable is getting pumped by 5,6,7 goals. For me that's not on. The defending at that level by us is shocking and is drastically needing looked at. Granted we can't go out and buy a 20,30 million defender, what we can do is go out and get players with the same idea and potential as big Virgil van dyke. we must use our scouting system to the max and source out the best quality that we can attract to Celtic. The defenders we have stroll the SPFL at a canter, but champions league, or Europa league for that matter definitely needs a step up in quality. Roll on Sunday and get this result out our systems.

6.) 23 Nov 2017 06:58:34
Some of the defending was a disgrace. That was PSGs biggest victory this season. Perhaps they turned it on, but I think it was more a case of us giving them a helping hand. Learn from it and move on Bhoys.



05 Nov 2017 13:55:21
Paulo Gazzaniga was impressive in goal for Spurs today, given MOTM by Glenn Hoddle. 25 years old but third choice behind Vorm.


1.) 05 Nov 2017 14:52:59
He may have had a good game today but he is a bang average GK. Would take Vorm but not him.

2.) 05 Nov 2017 14:58:15
I'd lime the guy Ward fae Liverpool that was in loan at aberdeen.

3.) 05 Nov 2017 18:00:50
I never understood why some on here have such a stauner for Vorm 10 appearances in the last 3-4 years 0 ambition happy to sit on the bench and collect a paycheck, not for me would rather have a keeper who wants to play.

4.) 05 Nov 2017 19:00:49
Big. D I have stated the exact same opinion a few times on here about vorm.
The guy has spent his best years on a bench when he was good enough to be playing week in week out at a big club.
I would much rather find another big frazer who has a drive to improve and reach the top.

5.) 06 Nov 2017 08:23:40
change the nappy pampers.

6.) 06 Nov 2017 09:28:02
Totally Kev! Young Ward looked a very good keeper during his time up here and I'm amazed he has not got more of a chance with the 2 diddies in front of him at Liverpool. Add to that the fact the Liverpool will no doubt go out and buy another keeper, rather than promoting the boy, I think there could be a real chance of getting him and IMO would be money very well spent.

7.) 06 Nov 2017 23:43:58
Can we really judge these goalkeepers, young Ward and big Vorm,
Most of us see them 3/ 5 times a season and we judge Gordon who we watch 49+ times a season.

8.) 07 Nov 2017 08:11:45
We seen Ward for Aberdeen where he played 21 games and often thwarted us with some great saves. Seemed very consistent during his time up here as well. Don't think you will get a better look into a potential signing than that.

9.) 07 Nov 2017 21:35:55
I don't know about u lads, but I watch Celtic matches and hence would only be quaranteed to see Aberdeen Four times against us and maybe I would also see them a couple of times per season against weak opposition, nothing like the amount of times we see Gordon.

Like we area all Celtic supporters and hence we are bound to see more of our players than others . Thankfully the club employ a good team of scouts to check out potential signings.



04 Nov 2017 00:22:23
I see there is to be a minute's silence tomorrow before kick off. I really hope everyone, regardless of their instincts, observes it fully as it would give the media carte blanche to make it a massive story and take the shine off what may well be one of the biggest days in our club's history. HH#63.


{Ed007's Note - And it'll help take attention away from the TRIFC accounts. An absolute nonsense to announce this the night before the match and it's not even Rememberance Weekend till next week.
We go through this every year, it's all total bollocks. If you want to wear a poppy wear one and if you don't then don't. Neither person needs to go on about Ireland, the Empire or what their papa done in the wars. In the bigger picture you wearing a daft wee bit of paper (wasn't that Haig's way of injured soldiers earning, making the poppies?) is up to you. Just don't force wearing one or not down each other's throat, you won't change anyone's mind or opinion.
FIFA shat it and should have banned it all when they had the chance, this scunners me every year.
Today, the 3rd, is the 26th anniversary of my uncle killikng himself, Larkhall born and bred, joined up at 16 and when his time was up he couldn't live in civvy street, nobody helped him when he asked and was senctioned? He couldn't cope and sadly took an OD and that was that, the amount of drugs in his system showed it wasn't a cry for help. My mam had to get the money together to bury him and not once in the past 26 years has anyone been in touch with my mam or sister about him, I remember something about a pension but he had a young son.
If someone is paying to go somewhere you might get shot it's their responsibility to look after the injured or dead. We shouldn't need soldiers in pointless wars but we shouldn't need charities to look after those who have went. They make enough money selling the arms to the terrorists to use against us in the first place.


1.) 04 Nov 2017 07:12:54
Not much point in having shiny bollix if you can't use them .

2.) 04 Nov 2017 08:42:43
Today's team I would like to see the 3/ 1/ 4/ 2 wae grif and MD up top.

3.) 04 Nov 2017 05:15:51
Sad story that ed and unfortunately not so uncommon. Good friend of mine was left on his arse after serving luckily there's a charity soldiers off the streets which he says he owes his life to.

{Ed007's Note - There's plenty of young men out who are forgotten about and cast aside wgen their time as cannon fodder is up. Why did your friend need a charity for help when it was our government he was working for when all his traumas took place? They shoull be footing the bill of looking after them.

4.) 04 Nov 2017 07:10:09
Sad story Ed and a heartfelt post. For me a football arena is exactly that . a place to go and watch football. Next Sunday people will have the chance to remember the fallen Wether it be at a cenotaph church or mass. There's no need for it at sporting events. Would a minutes silence be held before the first set of an Andy Murray match or the 2.15 at Cheltenham? Everyone has there own opinion on wars conflicts etc. The bhoys/ Ghirls supporting Glasgow Celtic football club at Perth today are as much an ambassador for the club as Big Billy Mcneil is. I'm suspicious as to whether this is a 'poppy trap' or not but what I do know is that SMSM will be sharpening the pencils as we speak. Let's not give them ammunition to try and taint us. ☘.

5.) 04 Nov 2017 08:18:12
ED007 very sad story about you uncle, and I agree was that not the purpose of buying a poppy, to help servicemen and their families.
As for the minute's silence I will observe it in memory of my grandad but it is a personal choice. As is buying or wearing a poppy.
What gets me angry is the way TRIFC have hijacked this, and it is simply as ED007 says to deflect attention away from how poor their team is and how poor their bank balance is. I do not remember them making such a big thing about Remembrance Sunday years ago, no it is only since they died and rose again as the tribute act. Hypocrites the lot of them.

{Ed007's Note - It's only a recent thing in the UK, before it was a solemn and respectful Rememberance of those who died in the 2 wars. It's changed it's meaning now and as like most things right wing lunatics hijack it's an embarrassing fiasco that even a lot of ex-services have turned their back on.
God bless your granddad, Tim, that's the generation who the real heroes were.}

6.) 04 Nov 2017 12:25:19
Well said Ed. I have the utmost respect for the bravest of the brave who fought and died in the 2 wars.

7.) 04 Nov 2017 19:39:52
I'm sure the Catholic community in Derry won't be interested in a minutes silence for british thugs who murdered 14 innocent civilians on a civil rights March, it isn't a crime to boo these people.



02 Nov 2017 23:58:11
I was having a look at the EL round of 32 format and the draw goes:

Seeded: 12 EL Group winners and 4 best CL dropouts

Unseeded: 12 EL Group runners up and 4 worst CL dropouts

This means if we qualify we could actually get another CL dropout along with some other big games to be had so fingers crossed we finish the job and get there!


{Ed007's Note - Round of applause for Kev's geekiness at this time of the day, appreciate that work. IT BETTER BE RIGHT BTW!!}

1.) 03 Nov 2017 10:13:17
I was nightshift haha! There's nothing in the description about CL teams being kept apart but teams from the same EL group or association can't draw each other apparently. We're currently in the bottom 4 CL teams along with Dortmund, Atletico Madrid and Napoli.

2.) 03 Nov 2017 07:48:51
Morning Eds just think wae the way we played against Kilmarnock do you think BR will go with his 1st 11 rather than the squad team the morra?

{Ed007's Note -There will be changes from the Bayern team I'd imagine and at least one player included or not that Jamesbhoy67 will be raging and have a moan about.... :-D

3.) 03 Nov 2017 13:15:04
Who's that RD?

{Ed007's Note - I'll have a guess it'll be Rogic or maybe Griffiths.}

4.) 03 Nov 2017 19:19:33
You better believe it ed.



13 Oct 2017 17:46:53
Ed, the Celtic Snapchat showed Kouassi training today. With Brown and Armstrong unlikely to feature tomorrow do you reckon there's any chance we'll see him in alongside Ntcham? Then McGregor ahead since Rogic was away to Australia for the WCQ.


{Ed007's Note - Depending where Kouassi is fitness wise he must be in with a shout of at least being on the bench. Kouassi and Ntcham in the 2 positions in front of the defence would be good to see.}

1.) 13 Oct 2017 20:16:09
Am desperate to see kouassi get some game time under his belt. What little we've seen I have liked but still not enough to say if he's going to be a success or not.

{Ed007's Note - I think everyone feels the same way, Kev.}

2.) 13 Oct 2017 21:42:56
Who do use think we will start wae the morra?


3.) 14 Oct 2017 01:00:26
No for henderson. He has no future so i would give someone else a game. I liked henderson but he has no future.

4.) 14 Oct 2017 09:02:34
Depends what Henderson you are talking about. If it is Liam I would be very surprised if he played as he has not had a sniff all season. His younger brother was on the bench in one of the last games and getting good reviews from the development league.

5.) 14 Oct 2017 14:44:23
I think we will get beat today. If he is playing kouassi and Ntcham in middle i think that is a risk. De VIRES IN GOAL? AJAR AND bitton as centre backs. Tierney on the bench? that's what it looks like being today. We need to make sure we are 100% fit for Germany trip so nothing else we can do but keeper and back line as well as midfield looks a problem. 2-1 to Dundee.

Do you think we would have went to the £8M mark? I'd like to think so.


{Ed007's Note - Yes I honestly do, Kev. Lawwell and the board knew how the fans would have reacted if we had managed to sign Roberts permanently and there would have been no risk regarding would the player settle and be able to do the job the manager wants. It would have been a win-win for the Club.
And there's no way Celtic would want to pi$$ City off by messing them around, the Club made it crystal clear to City and Roberts even before the season ended that they would be bidding and trying to sign him permanently.}

I think the fact it's being reported that Celtic tried to get it done is what's making most folk happy Ed. Whether it's actually true or not though is another matter.


{Ed007's Note - I said all along that Celtic wanted to sign Roberts permanently so it's nice that the papers have finally caught up. Better late than never.}
