Well that's honestly the worst transfer window I can ever recall and I think the fallout is going to rumble on for a long time. Big thanks to Ed002 for putting up with us today and keeping us in the loop and best wishes to Ed007 and the family, hope all is as well as can be expected.


{Ed002's Note - Thanks Kev.}



26 Aug 2018 08:06:43
Harold Moukoudi being linked. We've been saying with the excellent young French players we've signed there must be a defender somewhere.


1.) 26 Aug 2018 09:22:58
Looks like a plausible young defender. So its probably a wind up.

2.) 26 Aug 2018 09:43:26
Duverne part 2.

3.) 26 Aug 2018 10:55:10
Not seen him play, but got to be a lot better than what we have.
Hopefully we get this guy in and a right back, and 1-2more we will be untouchable . c'mon Bhoys.



21 Aug 2018 21:18:56
The Bruma link doesn't seem to be getting squashed so maybe there is a potential interest? Maybe depending on Boyata?


1.) 21 Aug 2018 21:49:24
I thought the player came out and squashed it himself Kev?

2.) 21 Aug 2018 22:03:47
No he said hed heard about the rumour but him and his agent haven't heard anything official.

3.) 21 Aug 2018 22:22:03
He did there no chance of it happening give boysts a second chance lads.

4.) 21 Aug 2018 22:32:05
He said nobody had been in contact yet but in no way ruled out a move.

5.) 21 Aug 2018 23:16:54
No way are we spending ยฃ7mil on a player when we don't have CL money coming in. Even if we do sell Boyata.

6.) 21 Aug 2018 23:42:55
The fact he said heโ€™d heard about it but hasnโ€™t received anything official suggests to me he might be interested.

Would love it to happen but I have a feeling weโ€™re going to end up with Boyata still here come the end of the window.

7.) 22 Aug 2018 11:17:19
Would his agent not be the first to hear about any interest?

8.) 22 Aug 2018 12:50:30
Has anyone checked out his injury record, not the best. He has had to have two knee operations so far.

{Ed007's Note - No he hasn't.}

9.) 22 Aug 2018 15:49:37
Brilliant ed. To the point.

{Ed007's Note - I explained it on the other page ๐Ÿ˜œ



16 Jul 2018 17:03:15
Supposedly we're "battling" Newcastle for Uruguay playmaker Giorgian De Arrascaeta who is valued at ยฃ18M. If that's his price then it's completely made up or he's not coming to us ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป.


1.) 16 Jul 2018 17:20:59
I just read they paid 3.6 for him and are looking for over 5.

2.) 16 Jul 2018 17:30:24
Celts Are Here are saying they're wanting upwards of ยฃ5m for him.

{Ed007's Note - I can't see that, Monaco were ready to pay about 25 million Euros for him and he's not long signed a new contract with Cruzeiro as well with the aim of maximising his transfer fee.}

3.) 16 Jul 2018 19:41:08
Never going to happen. The wait for strengthening the side continues.

4.) 16 Jul 2018 19:54:04
We should be looking for defenders in South America, Argentinians or Uruguayans, cbโ€™s and fbโ€™s .

5.) 16 Jul 2018 20:37:40
It's alright saying that drewzy but remember it's harder for a work permit here than other countries.

{Ed007's Note - But it's easier in Scotland than it is in England.}

6.) 16 Jul 2018 21:46:08
He has an Italian passport according to Transfermarkt. wouldn't need a work permit. If the money is closer to ยฃ9 million we may be an interesting proposition for him. Im sure Suarez would rave about working with Rodgers.

7.) 16 Jul 2018 23:18:07
Not for long ed.

8.) 16 Jul 2018 23:55:28
I can't see it personally. Not with the squad atm. Maybe with the forthcoming chat we may look to offload Allen and Christie? And with possibly Mikey Johnston off on loan we will need someone capable of playing behind the striker in any position and signing McGinn too.

9.) 17 Jul 2018 08:02:24
I hope not, have you seen his videos does not look like a player of top quality. Even look where he places a shot, ever one is hit and hope. Compare it to Morgan's last season video night and day.

10.) 17 Jul 2018 11:36:44
With Liam Hendersons club folding I can see him going back to Hibs for noting which might make the McGinn transfer a bit easier.



02 Jul 2018 12:47:34
Jonathan Bamba has signed for Lille. He was suggested as a target for us a couple of weeks back.


1.) 02 Jul 2018 15:22:37
Getting slightly concerned that we are now no longer getting linked with players. Trimming the fat from the squad is all well and good but we need to getting players in and bedded into the team for the CL qualifiers. 1st round should be simple enough but we could be out after the 2nd round if we are not careful.

2.) 02 Jul 2018 16:04:49
Did anybody actually believe hr was a target?

Step away from the glue.

3.) 02 Jul 2018 16:07:04
For all the years I've been following Celtic. I can't recall them ever going out and spending serious cash from a position of strength.

4.) 02 Jul 2018 16:20:27
Happy what do you call what we just spent on edouard?

5.) 02 Jul 2018 16:32:19
I probably say this each window but I am sure we have players in mind and talks are going on about bringing them in. Personally at present I would like us to bring in 3 new players a CB a playmaker and a right back not so gifted at some on hear to mention names so not going to attempt to say who, But I hope there will be some movement. As to be honest present team good enough for the league but can't see us get far in CL IF we get that far depending on draw with the same players.

6.) 02 Jul 2018 17:17:05
Kev83 Less money we have took in for Armstrong.

Eduardo signing is superb doesn't strengthen last year's squad.

7.) 02 Jul 2018 18:16:47
@MagicPole why is it inconceivable that he would be a target?

8.) 02 Jul 2018 20:21:38
Happy I take it you where not a fan during the MON Days then?

9.) 02 Jul 2018 22:16:49
Only time we broke the biscuit tin mentality during MON. Was when the Zombies were in front.

Martin's first season was the only season we spent heavily.

I said from a position of strength. i've been going home/ away from late 80s. Can't recall anytime we've been in front. Serious money has been spent.

10.) 03 Jul 2018 11:02:55
We didn't pay anything for edouarde, van dijk payed for it, with the armstrong and erik money untouched.

11.) 03 Jul 2018 11:04:10
Bhoys all the rumour pish is coming from SMSM and if your worried then they've got you were they want all Celtic fans. Celtic will do business there's no doubt about it. The fact that we don't do our business like Sevcos supermarket sweep style doesn't mean we're not active in the market. Keep the faith bhoys HWG10IAR.

12.) 03 Jul 2018 11:07:25
Kev, the money he is on coupled with the money to buy him. Money. Itโ€™s always about the money.

Ironically it looks like we've gone from a frightening attacking unit with a shaky defence to fairly solid defensively and lacking ideas in attack. I don't think it will take more than a few tweaks to reap the best of both. I don't see Rogic and McGregor fitting into the same team and on current form, I'd have Tam on the bench at the weekend and have a natural wide player on the left which should help stretch the opposition a bit more rather than congest the central areas.


1.) 21 Sep 2018 14:41:30
100% correct Kev, Sinclair needs to be given a run back in the starting XI at the expense of Rogic, can't understand why he's not been given a run especially when he's been showing glimpses of his early form when he's been coming on.

2.) 21 Sep 2018 15:04:22
We have no penetration through the middle as it's always side to side and down both flanks. With all our midfielders surely 1 of them can step up and be the playmaker. As you say the defence looks far better with Benkovic in it. I used to worry every time a cross ball came into our box so he will steady my nerves! Gordon still gives me the fear tho with cross balls. We just haven't clicked together as of yet but hopefully that changes on Sunday. Not a great performance all round but 3 points is the start we needed.

{Ed007's Note - That first sentence ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚


3.) 21 Sep 2018 15:41:17
Ooooooooo What a way to carry-on Ed.

{Ed007's Note - ๐Ÿ˜

4.) 21 Sep 2018 16:15:42
Try the magic blue pill pud. Haha.

5.) 21 Sep 2018 16:51:45
Time to give Sinclair and griff a run and by that a mean a few games we look a bit flat.

6.) 21 Sep 2018 17:56:32
I mentioned on the live-chat last night that, at least we were keeping clean sheets (5 in-a-row) and that was something we couldn't do since the season started. However, I agree with the consensus above, about Rogic, McGregor, Sinclair and Griffiths.
It's obvious that we need much more direct aggression and higher tempo as the sideways predictability was easy to defend against.
Young Johnston also made a real impact (and should have had a goal) when he came on and I think Forrest - like Rogic is going through the motions these days and needs a wee rest and reminder.
We need to get back to playing form players in their proper positions and using more pace and directness to translate possession into the goals we know the players are capable of.

7.) 21 Sep 2018 18:09:03
I would play Malumbu in beside brown and push Ntcham on one to support the striker. The midfield would have a far better balance.

8.) 21 Sep 2018 18:53:49
Sack the Board, you may be right in playing Malumba, however are you not taking a chance playing a player you hardly know and who hasn't played in any team for the past 4/ 5 months . Mulumba may very well be a good player for us but it is maybe too early for him, BR will see him every day and is best suited to decide when to play him.

9.) 21 Sep 2018 19:07:36
Personally I have high hopes for Lewis Morgan and hope he can come in to give us that extra spark by taking on a man and create some spaces.

10.) 21 Sep 2018 21:51:03
Kevbhoy, I hope as the season proceeds I hope that between Lewis Morgan M Johnstone, Christie and Aranzi that we will have a couple of very good players and two more capable of coming on and playing their part.

11.) 22 Sep 2018 10:08:56
Excited about Morgan too. Celtic thing I guess.

Don't sell McCourt.

12.) 22 Sep 2018 03:43:26
As soon as I put the word "penetration" I knew a dirty mind would jump straight in. Well done Ed and the gifs a belter! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ€.

{Ed007's Note - The "down both flanks" was just the cherry on the cake, Pud ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘



04 Sep 2018 19:50:48
Here's my take on the red card debate. "Excessive force" has being mentioned quite a lot lately. "Yes he had a wee kick out but was it 'excessive' force? ". In my opinion, if the ball is nowhere near you (McGregor) then there is ZERO requirement for any force to be used towards your opponent (Ajer) . Therefore, ANY force used - no matter how hard or soft your kick is - is surely excessive. Thoughts?


1.) 04 Sep 2018 20:37:14
The problem we have seen this season is that precedent has been set. How many games with similar incidents have we seen? Its a joke. Where did it start? Where did it continue? Now list where it has blatantly been allowed to continue.
"Players" cough, know they can get away with it. It's yet another pi$$ take that from the outside harm's the credibility of our game up here. Even by last season's rules or previous would those incidents of passed unpunished? No. Would SGs comments about refereeing gone unpunished? No.
"Were waking in the dawn of VAR becoming the future of the modern game. Like it or not. Eventually it will be passed at every professional level. What are we seeing here this season? In any other work industry this wouldn't slide. Scottish football "aye nae bother"

2.) 04 Sep 2018 23:05:10
Kevbhoy A strike by hand or foot by a Rangers player will never be ruled as excessive by compliance panel.

3.) 05 Sep 2018 13:12:00
These cheats as that's what they are simply. are simply practising for var as I have no doubt these cheats would be the very ones dictating the outcomes. Simply cheating bar stewards.

Never winning the league as they are simply third best. fact persons.



01 Sep 2018 15:36:59
Ed, any inside info on January targets? ๐Ÿ˜‚.


1.) 01 Sep 2018 16:36:52
Which year?

2.) 01 Sep 2018 16:55:43
Pick any you like, we wonโ€™t sign anybody lol.

3.) 01 Sep 2018 20:29:10
Oh my God, next years targets just now .
Unlike Man City and Chelsea and Man Utd in the past whose managers could list players they wanted and these clubs could outbid the opposition we unfortunately are shopping in the seconds baskets or the experimental ranges, but there are a whole host of clubs who can shop in our markets and afford it far better than us.



31 Aug 2018 17:38:34
Brendan Rodgers press conference:

"For Moussa, there's never been any promises but there's always been a plan. "

Based on the limited insight available, I'm siding with the club on this one. It's no secret that Moussa is here to develop and then move onto a better league but, as BR said, any bids have to suit all parties and regardless of whether some supporters or Eds think we need a direct replacement, the manager does and I support that. That being said, it's clear that we need to step up scouting a replacement in time for the January window and get this resolved.




30 Aug 2018 23:06:33
Ajer Boyata Benkovic
Forrest Brown Ntcham Tierney

3-5-2. Please let it happen.


1.) 30 Aug 2018 23:11:29
That looks like a very good team. Iโ€™m sure CalMac will be in there somewhere though. Least we have options now.

2.) 30 Aug 2018 23:14:31

3.) 30 Aug 2018 23:22:28
ED007 a midfielder and a CH hopefully signing morra is there going to be any surprises to follow or is that that for us?

{Ed007's Note - Well it'll be a surprise to me if that's it for us.}

4.) 30 Aug 2018 23:33:24
I think Calmac after tonight has earned his right to start. But can't complain about that defence. That'll be untouchable this season now ๐Ÿ‘Œ.

5.) 30 Aug 2018 23:43:33
Bain in for Gordon and that's a team๐Ÿ˜‰.

6.) 31 Aug 2018 07:05:29
No Calmac your having a laugh. Miles ahead to rogic.

The hotel will be another revenue stream and will help the club to attract major events to CP etc. The more off-field revenue we can generate the better because it means we won't be so dependent on the CL group money which is becoming increasingly harder to get and the blow won't be as hard as it currently is, especially if we get a better TV deal as well. 100% we should have strengthened this summer and made sure of CL qualification but that should be independent of the hotel/ museum money and doesn't make those a bad idea.

Money we might not have unless we sell? Did we not just announce record revenue along with a record sponsorship deal, record season ticket sales and a record fee for Dembele? Weโ€™ve lost Dembele, Armstrong and Roberts who have 84 goals between them since BR took over and none of them have been replaced, contrary to BRโ€™s wishes. The saving grace at the moment is BR has dragged these players out of a slump before and I believe he can do it again. Itโ€™s still early days but the signs are worrying.

No chance Kwaj. KT at the left of a three would limit his ability to bomb forward which would give us a real problem.
