Moritz Bauer being linked. Actually thought of him earlier in the summer once Stoke were relegated but he signed a new 5 year deal. For that reason I doubt there’s any truth in it, but he’d be ideal for the problem right back slot.

Celtic have come out and poured cold water over tht speculation really getting worried abt what’s happening at our club with transfers.


 

 

29 Aug 2018 21:25:38
Divock Origi? Potential Dembele replacement?

LM67

1.) 29 Aug 2018 21:36:27
Celtic said no to that offer.


2.) 29 Aug 2018 23:45:23
Liverpool wanted 27 million from Dortmund so I doubt he is a realistic target.


 

 

07 Aug 2018 22:38:34
Ed any truth in Emilio returning?

LM67

{Ed007's Note - He said himself a few weeks ago when he turned down Hibs he didn't want to return to Scotland and that he wants to play for a team based nearer Honduras.


1.) 07 Aug 2018 22:50:06
I know I thought he would have been MLS bound. Reports in a few papers tonight though - seems too random to be made up, must be something in it at least.


2.) 07 Aug 2018 22:52:04
We ain't hibs. His love for our club is up there with most of any overseas player we have ever had.


3.) 07 Aug 2018 23:20:39
Direct quote from Emilio in today’s Columbia Deportiva (cental american paper) :

“I am arranging with Celtic to return. I do not have any plans to stay in Central America right now”

Looks like its happening.


4.) 08 Aug 2018 00:21:28
Sure I read, when lenny tried to sign him, he would not set foot back in Scotland. Something to do with agents, how he felt blackmailed possible? But seemed adamant he wouldn't be back here .

{Ed007's Note - That's what I had read too, I forgot it said that there was money involved. It seemed pretty clear cut and it was quoting Izzy.}


5.) 08 Aug 2018 06:25:06
As much as he loves the club, it’s another cheap move . I think he was a weak link when he was here before he moved abroad . Defensively he’s not great, I appreciate we need cover for kt but is it our scouting that’s poor or us being cheap.


6.) 08 Aug 2018 08:08:35
Said the agents were threatening to sue him but maybe it's been sorted out now?


7.) 08 Aug 2018 09:17:33
Was our scouting poor when it found edouard ntcham dembele Quinn?


8.) 08 Aug 2018 09:20:55
Emilio's departure was a funny one. Normally, we think players might be better of playing regular first team football than sit on Celtic--or any team's--bench. The exception is surely some team in Saudi. Emilio doesn't at all seem avaricious and yet blatantly went there for the money, which leads me to conclude that there must indeed have been some murky swindle involving agents and the like. He's also just about the ideal deputy for KT, and might be content to play a bit part at a club he has obvious affection for where other younger players might not. It wasn't so long ago he represented one of our chief attacking strengths (In that its remarkable the kind of player KT has become . . . coincidence? )

I'd take him back in a minute and through a free car in for the missus.


9.) 08 Aug 2018 09:45:24
Although 2nd choice to kt he was still head and shoulders above anything else in Scotland in his pos and it was only a year ago.


10.) 08 Aug 2018 10:35:26
No Kev our scouting wasn’t poor when we found the players you mentioned, my point would be is that they couldn’t come up with a new alternative or was the board going for the cheap option? Not every deal is going to work out either Kev so while I agree with you on the players mentioned there is also failures . Again my question would be is it the board going the cheaper route?


11.) 08 Aug 2018 11:20:41
What is wrong with the cheap route for a player that will be back up to first choice?
Especially when he knows the club inside out and will fit right in.
He will bring a good amount of experience as well.
Celtic didn't want to lose him in the first place.


12.) 08 Aug 2018 14:14:22
Seems like a pointless signing.

If KT is injured or needs rested we could also put McGregor there, or even Calvin miller. Or even stick with a 3-5-2 and play Hayes or Sinclair there.

If KT stays fit he won’t get a game and will be a waste of a wage.


13.) 08 Aug 2018 14:38:55
So Andy you'd be happy going up against a Barcelona or a psg with McGregor or Miller as our left back?
Jesus weep.


 

 

26 Jun 2018 19:32:29
Moses Odabajo on trial. Missed the last 2 seasons due to injury but had been performing well in the Championship before that. Only 25 next month.

LM67

1.) 26 Jun 2018 19:51:02
He’s a good attacking right back who be a good signing for us if he was over his injury problems .


2.) 27 Jun 2018 08:22:31
Yip, if his injuries are truly behind him then he could be a star player. He's a very talented lad, very fast with a great attitude. HH.


 

 

04 Feb 2018 01:24:48
Edouard should never have been dropped for todays game. Rodgers obviously desperate to give Musonda a start but why change a team that won so well?

Lot of negativity on here but very few praising Killie who I thought were phenomenal! Their workrate was incredible from start to finish and our players never got a minute. Mulumbu Scottish Premiership signing of the season by a mile. His first time through ball late on was immense. If only he was a few years younger!

LM67

1.) 04 Feb 2018 12:42:05
I posted on here when he became a free agent and said Mulumbu would be a cracking signing. Every game I've watched him in this season he's bossed that midfield and pops up everywhere.


2.) 05 Feb 2018 07:58:36
would you want to go face Clarke if you hadn't given 110%?

This team, with Rodgers at the helm, is done.

LM67

1.) 23 Sep 2018 15:09:54
Agreed this team under Rodgers is done, all the talk about not replacing Armstrong and Roberts and dembele well they were no different they looked slow and boring last season too, they all do which is why we need to freshen up the tactics the formation and unfortunately I think that will only happen with Rodgers leaving brilliant manager but the time has come I think, he looks suicidal I think there is major issues in the dressing room for sure, I don't think we will win the title this season and if we do we will be challenged all the way and for us to win we have to sort this mess out now another month of this pathetic play and we could destroy any chance of winning the league I really don't think Brendan has the answers unfortunately.


2.) 23 Sep 2018 16:19:14
That was another woeful display. We need to get it right very soon.


 

 

03 Sep 2018 22:05:57
Ed any info on what happened with Boyata towards the end of the window? Did interest dry up, did he accept he was staying but will leave next summer or is there a chance he now wants to stay long term?

I think the past few weeks have shown how important the big man is. I have no doubt that if he’d played in the CL qualifiers we’d be in with the big boys again.

LM67

{Ed007's Note - I don't know the ins and outs of it but basically Brendan Rodgers told Boyata that he wouldn't be allowed to leave during this window. There was some rumours going about that Boyata was changing his agent which if true would make me wonder what part his agent played in the recent mess, especially after what Rodgers said about him just turning up at Lennoxtown.
I'd offer him a 5 year deal with a pay rise and a buy-out clause in the £10 - 15 million bracket - with the prices in England just going to continue rising and Kompany's international career coming to an end we'd easily get that if we were getting at least £9 million for him this summer.}


1.) 03 Sep 2018 22:42:55
Yeah I definitely think his agent had a lot to do with the mess. Determined for him to go for big money so he got a hefty fee in the process.

That’s a good idea. Are release clauses common for us? Anyone got one that you know of?

I just hope he stays. The games we played without him were a glimpse into our future if he leaves next summer and isn’t replaced with proven quality.

{Ed007's Note - I don't know of any players that have but clubs tend to keep them quiet unlike Spain where they need to register them.}


2.) 03 Sep 2018 22:43:23
I think some of it goes down to the apparent actions of the player claiming injury when there wasn’t and the gung ho actions of the agent. I think any interested clubs didn’t want that type of behaviour at their clubs and Dedryck s actions and his agent scared them off? Be interesting to see who our number one pairing will be. I so enjoyed Sunday’s game maybe only 1 goal but a pummelling all the same, clammed a few newbies up facebooks been a bit quieter today 🙂🍀⚽️.


3.) 03 Sep 2018 23:16:30
Looking forward to seeing Benkovic but hope it doesn’t hamper Ajer’s development. He plays very well beside Boyata.


4.) 04 Sep 2018 00:36:06
I think the Moussa situation will not bode well for the future. Not that I blame the club in any way. The way I look at it if you don’t want to be here, don’t let the door hit your arse on the way out. But know players will know if the stamp their feet loud enough they will get their way. There’s no doubt big Boyata was flawless yesterday but my personal opinion still remains he should never have been given the opportunity to pull on our shirt again and that won't change. After the Dembele situation I wonder if he regrets accepting BR’s decision that he want being sold in the window? We’ll never know.

{Ed007's Note - It really doesn't work like that, Real Madrid wanted to sign Hazard and his reps met them a few times because he fancied it so how did Thibaut Courtois force a move and Hazard didn't?
Doesn't getting 22 million Euros for an unhappy player in Dembble, players like Wanyama, Van Dijk, £7 million for Armstrong etc, back to back trebles, winning trophies, working under Brendan Rodgers, watching KT, Ajer, Edouard and Ntcham etc develop, players like Rogic and KT signing new deals, LG due to sign on too and yes even the money in the bank and balance sheet bode us better for the future rather than a player that acted like a petulant child's ripple effect through the Club?
And maybe what's happened also sends out a signal that you don't want to cross the manager and tell lies about him while trying to work your ticket - if Dembele hadn't admitted lying to Rodgers he would still be a Celtic player.
Rodgers has sent out a message to players with both the Boyata and Dembele situations, he decides when you leave Celtic and when you do it will be on the Club's terms.}


5.) 04 Sep 2018 06:40:36
Great post ed.

{Ed007's Note - Thanks mate, it's certainly not as much doom & gloom as some would like us to believe (not you, Ice Man) and there's still a lot to look forward too.}


 

 

02 Sep 2018 23:29:26
Ed I take it the chances of us adding a free agent to the squad are very slim?

LM67

{Ed007's Note - I've not heard of anything mate, is there anyone still available anyone fancies? Does Robbie Keane have a club just for a heavy giggle?}


1.) 03 Sep 2018 00:10:02
Surprised we didn't make a late loan swoop for Alfred Finnbogason.

{Ed007's Note - Gary Hooper would crawl through a sea of broken Bucky bottles to be our 3rd choice striker now.}


2.) 03 Sep 2018 00:24:54
Let's get marchisio in while we're on a high. Can't see why not.


3.) 03 Sep 2018 00:30:17
He is a prime example of the grass not always being greener!

{Ed007's Note - Poor advice again imo, Andy. The majority of footballers aren't exactly blessed with much what we'd call intelligence, especially these days when they're handed everything on a plate from any age and hence trust these people to look after them, then in a lot of cases the agents/family etc realise they make more money from transfers than renewing contracts and their own personal greed takes over the whole situation.
Since I started doing this about 7 or 8 years ago my eyes have been really opened talking to people like Ed001 and Ed002 and it was murky back then btw but it has progressively got worse over that time but a lot of people refuse to accept it and still think deals are done on a 5 minute meeting and a handshake off the manager. There'll be deals for players agreed at the top level (Barca, Madrid, Man City etc) for the summer in 2020.}


4.) 03 Sep 2018 11:04:49
To be honest Ed that’s one of the main reasons I love this site, we get to hear of actual ongoings behind the scenes instead of the nonsense in the media.

You’re spot on there, Hooper never struck me as the sharpest tool in the box. It makes us appreciate players like KT, Brown, Lustig etc who show the club so much loyalty. I wouldn’t say no to him coming back but how many players have we seen that likely regret leaving?

That’s frightening though mate. James Forrest to Real Madrid in 2020 you heard it here first.

{Ed007's Note - That can only mean Rodgers will be taking him with him......


5.) 03 Sep 2018 20:10:17
Wouldn’t want Hooper anywhere near CP. He thought Norwich was progress, he doesn’t get it.


 

 

02 Sep 2018 14:58:20
Wee Jamesy gets a hard time from many, myself included some times. But the awareness and composure he showed to pick out Ntcham was tremendous. Could easy have tried to score himself.

LM67

1.) 02 Sep 2018 15:37:48
I am a fan of the wee man but I know he's not consistent enough.
What he does do is turn up for big games and did again today.


2.) 02 Sep 2018 15:54:46
Wish I had the luxury of calling someone 5ft9 wee man🙁.


 

 

01 Sep 2018 10:20:12
Ed when do we need to register our EL squad? Can you see us dipping into the free agent market beforehand? Obviously Caulker now available, plus as mentioned by someone else Emmanuel Eminike could be a replacement for Dembele for a season. Always done well against us.

LM67

{Ed007's Note - We need to register our squad by 3 September 2018 (24.00CET). I had a quick look at the free players last night and for me personally I don't see anyone that could come in and be anything more than fringe players.
We signed Edouard to replace Dembele and there a lot of posters think we don't need to have 3 strikers so I expect them along shortly to say what a great job Lawwell done in selling Dembele.
If we sign Caulker that would give us 6 CB's in our first team squad as well as Lustig and Bitton who can play in there.}


1.) 01 Sep 2018 12:25:44
Edouard looks a much better player when he can roam from his position, with a number 9 beside him to hold the ball up. Not sure him and Griffiths beside each other would work. I’d like another to give us that option.

Ben Arfa would also be a great addition if he could keep his head screwed on but won’t happen. He could have lit up Celtic Park as well.

{Ed007's Note - I can't see us playing 2 up front very often this season with only 2 first team strikers. I think Ben Arfa had a medical with Rennes yesterday.}


2.) 01 Sep 2018 12:38:13
Looking at the list only really Caulker I'd even glance at but our squad is starting to get as bloated as it was under ronny.


3.) 01 Sep 2018 13:17:03
Emenike has had a bad time with injuries recently.

If we were to go for a free agent it has to be on a 1 year deal so we can sign a longer term option next summer. But anyone worth signing now would be looking for a longer deal so I’d rather we didn’t bother.

Forrest, Christie and Sinclair will all be able to cover there if necessary.

Flashbacks to Carlton Cole😐.

Was brilliant against us last year to be fair. And can play either role in the middle of the park - can sit like brown or push forward like ntcham, like he did when he scored the winner against us.

Memisevic link is nonsense. A celtic site said we shoukd sign him to be the next van Dijk purely because he plays for Groningen.

The Bosnian media obviously picked up on this and a day or 2 later ran with a story that we were interested in him.

We’ve reached the Champions League the last 2 seasons yet can’t agree deals for players from Aberdeen and Hibs.

I didn’t think we should be singing McKenna anyway but clearly whoever the next target is is below him on the list of names. That’s a worrying thought.

Surely there must be a centre back on the continent who is:

1) Affordable
2) Wants to join
And most importantly
3) Is better than the bang average players either already in the squad or who we’ve been linked with.

Would certainly be a decent option for Leipzig and Salzburg away. Maybe a bit defensive for domestic games though.
