Ed a lot of people, including yourself, have suggested Celtic could or should go for John McGinn in the summer. I've noticed that the social media rumours are gathering pace after BR praising him. Are you aware of any genuine interest from the club to make something happen?

Kevbhoy

{Ed007's Note - John Park had McGinn scouted and we were keeping an eye on him but I don't know what the new scouting regime will think of him. I'd imagine Lee Congerton will want to see him for himself before deciding if scouting him should continue.}


1.) 24 Mar 2017 14:57:04
Cheers. I like the look of him and a boy in work is really good mates with him and says he'll be leaving Hibs in the summer. BR has said he wants to be making an impact in Europe though and he's maybe not at that level.

{Ed007's Note - I said the same thing but he's more than capable of holding his own on the domestic front. I'd also try and get shot of Scott Allan as part of any deal.}


2.) 24 Mar 2017 22:35:52
he wants to move down south.


3.) 26 Mar 2017 13:24:16
How do you know that jamesbhoy67, because he's from Clydebank? Moving south didn't work well for his older brother, so a few more years up here would be better suited.


4.) 26 Mar 2017 14:15:50
my family has been friends with john's family going way back more than 70 years, john went to school with my son so its safe to say i've had a few conversations with him and his family about it, he's had his heart set on playing down south for years, his two brothers weren't as good as john.

i've said to him never mind england get yourself in the hoops, but i said the same thing to my friend kevin gallacher, and playing in england didn't do kevin any harm 53 international caps later.

DR running the story that Sevilla are in for Henry Onyekuru now. It seems to me that if we were really desperate to get him we would have paid the money and got the deal done quickly like we did with Kouassi. This story will run and run until the summer with a number of clubs "joining the race" and if he goes elsewhere in the summer, which seems likely given his attitude and behaviour during January, he'll have "snubbed" Celtic. IMO he looks a cracking player but we have the money to go out and get an established CL quality winger in the summer so it wouldn't be a massive loss.

Kevbhoy

1.) 14 Feb 2017 11:51:29
He looks like a cracking player, somebidy we could realky do with. Was it him BR was frustrated about not signing? Possibly. As for the personality, big question mark for me. It could just take one schemer from the SMSM to literally make up that an EPL team are after him in January, and he might be getting a lift down the road from Odemwingie.


2.) 14 Feb 2017 13:21:12
If moussa leaves in the summer and let's hope he doesn't this boy might b the ideal replacement and the next big thing.


3.) 14 Feb 2017 13:32:52
Of course the gutter press will say he snubbed celtic. they'll only write this stuff so people buy their guff.


4.) 14 Feb 2017 14:27:50
Mallythetally I think he's more of a winger than a striker but it would be an excellent signing from what little I've seen of him. Ed mentioned that his attitude had been highlighted to Celtic as a potential concern though and you can understand why. Like I said though, we're now in a position where we can afford a current big thing rather than the next big thing!


5.) 14 Feb 2017 17:51:05
Agree, not an out and out striker but have not seen much of him. maybe brendan could convert him.


6.) 14 Feb 2017 19:17:34
The lads been playing as a striker this year for his club! Scored the winner at the weekend against Gent. That's 13 goals for the season so far! I'd happily take this guy.


7.) 14 Feb 2017 22:32:04
He has mainly been playing on the left of a front three Ice Man. Looks like by the time he scored against Gent though, that he was moved into the middle, once Sylla came off. It's good to have that wee bit versatility though, especially when trying to get a smaller squad.


 

 

26 Jan 2017 10:52:31
I'm sure there is a lot of hard work going on behind the scenes on the transfer front but I'd be surprised if we heard anything before Sunday as it's going to be an historic day for our club and the full focus of everyone should be on that. I can't wait and am hoping there is a full house! HH.

The s*n reporting Eboue went to a Glasgow hospital with suspected malaria! Out now and apparently given the all clear.

21 Jan 2017 18:57:03
Ed, any idea whether the Henry Onyekuru rumour is legit? It would appear there's definitely some substance to it if the player has brought it up publicly, although that can tend to backfire on players.

Kevbhoy

{Ed007's Note - I don't know of any bid but if there is it will be a bit of a mess as their is a third party issue - Onyekuru is only part owned by his club KAS along with a sports company in Qatar which is illegal in the UK.}


1.) 21 Jan 2017 19:30:04
Cheers. I was reading that the talent agency who own the player also own the club so it's basically a front to showcase their clients. All seems a bit dodgy but he looks really good either way.

{Ed007's Note - He looks a cracking player, Kev.}


2.) 21 Jan 2017 22:21:19
I've heard don't no if it's true though that they in no way will they sell to Celtic because they want a megabucks deal


3.) 21 Jan 2017 23:49:57
It's very possible the "Celtic bid" is just a tactic to force other team's hands who actually have a genuine interest in him Replicas. He definitely looks a player but there's something a bit off about a player speaking in such detail about bids etc. to the media. I remember a few years back we pulled out of a deal for an Israeli because him and his club were singing to the press before the deal was 100% done.


4.) 21 Jan 2017 23:07:34
I know the daily record is no the best for true stories. KJ was talking about and his words were that he thinks Celtic will do a major significant piece of business this window and that KJ seems to think it's been lined up for a while. Do you think that he is full of crap or is there something in it?


5.) 22 Jan 2017 00:30:57
Kev hopefully it's us that gets him if he's a player I've not seen anything of him but hate this 3rd party stuff we'll just have to wait and see


6.) 22 Jan 2017 01:41:40
theres been rumours in the last couple of weeks about a 5m player coming in possibly a playmaker, but its probably the usual transfer window made up crap.


7.) 22 Jan 2017 08:42:21
@Replicas, It may be that the club technically own him and the talent agency only represent him so it might not be as messy as 3rd party ownership. Then again it could be a red-tape nightmare.


8.) 22 Jan 2017 10:42:02
Just watched a few clips of him, looks a class act, capable of playing across the front line. Still think we'll see one more player come in before the window closes a few outgoings too.

Another 3 points closer to the title probably sums up that game. It's at the point where things tend to become scrappy because we're so close to getting the league over the line. We did enough to win but the international break is coming at a nice time for a few of the players who have looked a little bit tired recently. Hopefully they'll come back ready for one last push for the treble. HH.

Kevbhoy

1.) 19 Mar 2017 18:02:03
Pleased with the result, but too many below par performances, particularly in attack. I'm not sure if it's tiredness as we did seem to be able to move about. Far too many heavy touches, mishit passes, people running into eachother and tripping over the ball. Poor Eboue even fell off the bench lol. So much of our good attacking play has gone through Sinclair who looks like he is in a wee dip right now. Forrest did well for the second, bit offered little else. We're missing Rogic as a CAM, just somebody in there orchestrating things. As a result Dembele looks like a frustrated player. Winning whilst playing poorly is always good though. I think you're right about the scrappiness possibly being from the title being so close though.


2.) 19 Mar 2017 19:23:29
Unable to win the league against Sevco, we have the next best thing. Winning the league at the Edinburgh huns. Got this funny feeling though that we will win the league on the Friday when Aberdeen lose to Dundee. After that, never mind the unbeaten run, BR should tinker with squad to get the best possible team ready for the Semi Final. MTH!


3.) 19 Mar 2017 19:31:04
Kev agree with you and jim tim but confess to being worried for a few weeks now. Sinclair has been great and in my opinion as good a player if not a better one than Dembele? He has looked poor for 3/ 4 weeks. don't know if he has got bored or its just a drop in form but when he does not play then Celtic don't play. Sounds harsh but i would not have played him today after Rangers performance. Something feels not right. Need to restore the fluid play we produced earlier in the season and do it quick.


4.) 19 Mar 2017 21:36:34
Sinclair be back to he's best soon aye it's frustrating because we know the players better than what they've been giving us last few weeks no just Sinclair but it was always bound to hit a spell when we had to win ugly, iam a massive fan of young KT and he's only going to get better but I feel he's final ball in last 2 games been poor yet I hate picking that out because he's only human, we've missed big Rogic at times guy takes a lot a pressure off Dembele when he plays whrn he comes back be good to see, as I said in a previous post think breaks came at right time because a lot a players maybe going through the motions a bit but get this title wrapped up and back them like we've done all season to get this treble. ☘☘☘.


5.) 19 Mar 2017 21:49:07
Is it a coincidence that Sinclair's dip in form has happened around the time his Mrs has started working again? I'm not sure if she moved up here with him and moved back down for work?


 

 

16 Mar 2017 21:44:53
Currently watching Europa League. Man Utd, Lyon, Roma, Ajax, Schalke, Monchengladbach, I reckon we'd give any of them a decent game over 2 legs. If you were to offer me last 16 of CL or 3rd place and a run in the EL I honestly think I'd go for the latter. With a few more signings we could do quite well in that tournament.

Kevbhoy

1.) 17 Mar 2017 09:14:28
Agree Kev. Said for a while I'd like to see us have a good crack at the Europa.

Finishing bottom of our CL group this year, the aim next year, obviously, would be to go one better. Qualify, hopefully with a decent draw finish 3rd, have the CL money banked for the season after and see how far we can go. Season after, use that wind fall wisely, and again try to get third, and try to get further in the EL. If we manage to qualify from our CL group, fair play, but I really would like to see us go on a EL run.

A 'marquee' CAM, a RWF who can contribute like Sinclair, a top drawer centre half and I reckon we could have a shot.


2.) 17 Mar 2017 10:13:09
He the next couple years of building I would be have with any European football after Christmas but I would love to see us having a right good go at getting beyond the last 16 of champions league.


3.) 17 Mar 2017 19:06:49
would rather give the europa a big miss. Hated the fact that we always have to play on a sunday after playing on thursdays.


 

 

15 Mar 2017 21:11:54
One thing that concerns me about Lee Congerton is his recent spell with Sunderland. Apart from Defoe, their recruitment over the past few seasons has been diabolical. Sunderland are just about the epitome of the BPL spending way above average money for way below average players.

Kevbhoy

1.) 15 Mar 2017 21:55:50
We need to give the man a chance think he was only there about a year so don't think he's fully responsible for all there woes. A would think any Sunderland manager would have the final say on any player signings.


2.) 15 Mar 2017 22:27:05
Absolutely, everyone deserves a chance and hopefully he helps to bring in a lot of good players for the club. I've just seen that some Sunderland fans have been giving him some bad criticism on social media about his time there.

{Ed007's Note - Let's be honest, Sunderland's a bit of a circus club - Martin Bain's their CEO for a start - and Ellis Short cut budgets and transfer funds a while back after he decided he wanted to sell the club.
As I said I don't know hee haw about him but there's some interesting articles out there about him:


www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/football/teams/sunderland/11864382/Sunderland-sporting-director-targeted-by-Borussia-Monchengladbach.html

www.theguardian.com/football/2012/may/21/lee-congerton-interview

www.bundesligafanatic.com/hsv-data-driven-scouting-during-arnesen-era/


3.) 15 Mar 2017 22:50:00
You're right Ed, they made a load of folk redundant recently which is unbelievable for how much money they take in year upon year.

{Ed007's Note - I didn't know that, Kev.}


4.) 15 Mar 2017 23:51:19
Well two of their players who he recruited did very well for us in the past, denayer and Mathews, pickford is an outstanding young keeper, Sebastian Larsson, jack rodwell and Fabio borini are very good players, who I would take at Celtic, so could it be a case of the management not getting the best out of them, rather than the recruitment being bad?


5.) 16 Mar 2017 01:48:55
watching denayer recently, it looks as if sunderland have ruined him as a player.


6.) 16 Mar 2017 07:28:50
Poyet and big sam tells you everything you need to know. he must be doing something right as he's been at chelsea Liverpool. frank arnesen thought highly enough of him to take him to hamburg in i think a dof role and then his short spell at Sunderland plus if uou read brendans comments on him having previously worked with him thatll do for me.


7.) 17 Mar 2017 10:42:03
It said on BBC website that he was a scout for Chelsea and Hamburg. but a Sporting Director at Sunderland!? I have to admit looking at some of Sunderland's buys I have been a bit concerned but is Sporting Director the same as Head Scout?


 

 

13 Mar 2017 16:10:31
Here's a direct quote from ex-referee Dermot Gallagher on yesterday's penalty claim:

"It's the 89th minute, it's 1-1, he can't afford to get it wrong. The biggest way to get it wrong is to give a penalty that wasn't, and I think that's the bigger mistake than not giving a penalty that was. "

Surely I'm not the only person who thinks that's absolute bulls**t?

Kevbhoy

1.) 13 Mar 2017 17:55:32
He's talking out his rectum - although I assume it was on SLY and they have always have an anti-Celtic agenda.
If the incident had perchance been at the other end we all know that madden would not have hesitated to help his favourites - like he had done all afternoon. Add to that:-
Miller should have been off as well as the persistent offender Hill - who would then not have scored that goal.
I know we had an off day but cheating is cheating and why BR or anyone else has not mentioned it is very frustrating.


2.) 13 Mar 2017 18:34:06
Dermott Gallagher is actually a massive Celtic fan, look it up. Its obviously just his opinion. Right or wrong.


3.) 13 Mar 2017 19:44:20
I don't agree with you on the anti-Celtic agenda and don't see why Clint Hill would be sent off except if the penalty had been given at the end. I like to leave the referee blame game to other folk as a lot of posters on here are way over the top. We were rubbish yesterday and I'm more concerned about that and hope we get a big reaction in the semi-final.


4.) 13 Mar 2017 20:39:54
Kevbhoy you are correct well said. Having said that it was a penalty, but we were way below par and to be fair only deserved a share of the points. Must do better in the semi.


5.) 13 Mar 2017 16:59:40
great minds and all that Ed. lol.

{Ed007's Note - Yours is that great you answered on the wrong thread (facepalm)


6.) 13 Mar 2017 21:40:09
Wasn't talking about Hill and the penalty - I was referring to his numerous unpunished infringements that should have warranted at least two yellow cards in the first half alone.
We all know we were poor yesterday - as I said as much in several posts after the game. However the refereeing was outrageously biased and did influence the game - whether we were poor or not.


7.) 13 Mar 2017 22:50:26
I know you were Passing Time and I never saw anything that merited Hill getting booked or sent off apart from the penalty that should have been. Again, I'll let others deal with the "outrageously biased" referee. At the end of the day, if we show up at Hampden we're through. HH.


8.) 13 Mar 2017 22:50:28
@passingtime - if you check most of the threads on here pre Sunday it was all 'the ref will have no bearing' as nearly everyone was betting / predicting 4, 5, 6 or 7 nil, Celtic -2 etc. Instead of moaning about the ref, would you not be better debating why Celtic were so poor?

I'll start it off if you like - I blame Brenda's strange substitutions as Celtic were in total control up until then. Did complacency or over confidence creep in with him? Maybe he's starting to believe the hype just like he did at Liverpool?


9.) 13 Mar 2017 23:50:51
union jack what was the strange substitution you keep yammering on about? bitton going off after Waghorn the fat twats assault or Armstrong coming off with tight calf's should they have stayed on and further injured themselves?


10.) 14 Mar 2017 13:00:58
Uj, don't try and make out as if it was the manager, we all know he had to make those subs. We don't fall for someones repetitive bull, we leave that to you gullibles. Worry about the fact your new bullfighter has started lying to your lot from the get go. Should be amusing.


11.) 14 Mar 2017 13:06:15
@big. d - I would have thought LG for Dembele would have been the shout as Moussa was rank rotten.
Plus if you listen to Armstrong after the game he was being very coy after the game about how bad his supposed injury was. I would have thought Sinclair should have been off instead as he had a poor game.

We'll find out how bad Armstrong's injury is this weekend.
In my opinion the balance of the team after the substitutions changed the game in Rangers favour later on but if you're happy that only the ref caused Celtic to drop points then roll on the semi final.


12.) 14 Mar 2017 17:45:42
@bhampot - you're normally better than that. Don't get taken in by the headlines from the Daily Rebel or Scottish Hun. Read his full Interview. He's hardly going to come in and publicly state they are the worst Rangers team ever ( copyright any #celticfamily in the media ) . And if your gullible to listen to the repetitive bull that it's all the referees fault when you drop points then more fool you.
P. S. Sorry for suggesting Brenda's halo 😇 had slipped, I didn't realise people were a wee bit precious on here. I won't mention it again. Well not until after the semi final if he hasn't learned his lesson. 😉.


13.) 15 Mar 2017 01:47:44
@unionjack where in my post did i mention the referee?


 

 

13 Mar 2017 10:08:44
Firstly, I've never seen so much jubilation at being knocked out of a title race, shows a real small team mentality. In Celtic terms, it shows that we aren't quite the finished article yet and unfortunately too many players had an off day at the same time coupled with them playing out of their skin. Hopefully the blip is out of their system now and we charge on to the treble and further strengthen the squad in the summer. HH.

Kevbhoy

1.) 13 Mar 2017 10:22:09
Any different from your mob's jubilation when you were knocked out the CL? A lot of hypocrites on here.


2.) 13 Mar 2017 10:47:01
Knocked out the Champions League by Barcelona and Manchester City. Humped by Inverness Dundee etc? Know your place diddy.


3.) 13 Mar 2017 11:12:26
I've taken quite a bit of satisfaction from their celebrations kev. Like I said yesterday, it just emphasises their small team mentality coming to CP and getting a draw.


4.) 13 Mar 2017 11:18:45
The polar reactions sums up the reality of how things stand in Scottish football. Celtic fans are angry and disappointed at dropping our first league points (and failing to win) since the 18th Sept! While Sevco fans are celebrating a draw as if it was a lottery win.
There was complacency and over-confidence by too many going into the game from many supporters, players and ex-players in the Celtic camp, while the underdogs went about their game and took advantage of the home teams slackness and under performers - with a little help from their friend madden.
It's the kick in the arse a few of them needed but it does very, very little to alter the course of a monumental season.


5.) 13 Mar 2017 11:41:16
How can u celebrate dropping 2 points and more or less losing 2nd place doesn't make sense and the spfl and the cl are slightly different are they not.


6.) 13 Mar 2017 11:55:08
@lwdawson, we celebrated the first draw against Man City as it gave us a very unexpected point and could have been vital to us staying in Europe after Christmas. It didn't pan out that way but we were still very much in with a shout at the time, that's the difference.


7.) 13 Mar 2017 13:55:18
Guys

Why are we even bothering replying to that 🤡?

Let him crawl back under his rock with no bites.

Amazing that they come on here to gloat over a draw though. What a joke of a club they are.


8.) 13 Mar 2017 14:34:38
Hilarious hearing all the jubilant sevco fans, title 55 in their 5 year existence is gone but it's okay as they put the timmies in their place, oh wait it was a 1-1 draw and they should have had a man sent off and a stonewall penalty given against them.

Never a penalty according to ebt mccann as hill has got to be able to wrap his legs round to get the ball despite their view that against accies the slightest touch on toral was a stonewall penalty.

Brendan clearly rattled him with his st mirren being the best team we've played, daft sevconian can't hide his bitterness and the un-mighty sevco were worthy drawers. not one mention of going for 55 in 5 years more than a few mentions about pep warbiola and yet this was the future England manager they are now claiming is a dud.

sevco don't do irony they don't do the truth either nor winning but they're easily pleased and led. Here we go 10 in a row.


9.) 13 Mar 2017 16:35:03
They've lost more ground on Aberdeen.


10.) 13 Mar 2017 16:44:52
If you don't celebrate an 88 minute equaliser in football then it's true what they say, Celtic fans live to hate rangers not love their club.


11.) 13 Mar 2017 16:50:02
@kevbhoy - small team mentality is getting continually humped in the CL but just glad you are there for the money. In that respect Celtic are like the 88 year old prostitute - still getting a wee fumble but getting handsomely rewarded for minimum effort!


12.) 13 Mar 2017 16:52:58
Exactly. Its amazing that these Sevconites are jumping up and down with a draw that should have been a loss, if that Madden had done his job and not favour his boyhood heroes. A very poor 3rd in the league with Hearts and St Johnstone chasing them down, no money, in debt and with a Manager who is average at best. Yeh real reason to be joyous LOL.


13.) 13 Mar 2017 18:01:18
Uj your going to the wrong prosties mate, minimal effort?


14.) 13 Mar 2017 18:07:22
Look celebrating an 88min equaliser is fine but throwing strips in tbe crowd and punters dancing and singing in pubs like they've won the league a bit much uj.
