Ajax Cape Town havr announced an agreement with Glasgow Celtic, for the sale of defender Rivaldo Coetzee HAS BEEN CONCLUDED .
The search for a CF still continues.

My only issue with this signing is this, since Ajax Amsterdam are the parent company, then why haven't they signed the boy up? Or is it just a case of someone seeing something that Ajax Amsterdam dont. Interesting i think.


2.) 21 Aug 2017 21:15:21
He's still to take a medical and work permit supposedly.


3.) 21 Aug 2017 21:40:09
Bham - I wouldn't worry about Ajax and defenders.

They said Veltman was a better prospect than Van Dijk, well we know what's happened there.


4.) 22 Aug 2017 09:20:00
He looks brilliant and with Shev and Boyata permanent bomb scares I will take this young guy any day of the week.

Check him out on YouTube.


5.) 22 Aug 2017 09:32:01
A bit unfair on Boyata Mp he was playing consistantly well and scoring some important goals up until injury.


6.) 22 Aug 2017 09:55:11
Boyata ain't the answer Stan. i'll give him credit for getting back in the team and doing well in the spl but against decent strikers he's just not good enough! Don't know if this young guy will be the answer but I'm willing to give him a chance. looks quite aggressive in the challenge and good with both feet. if I'm being honest but I was looking for a bit more experience to be honest! Somebody maybe 27 or 28 who's played in Europe, but maybe we've got another bargain with this kid.


7.) 22 Aug 2017 10:25:43
Time will tell mate we all want a Stubbs or an Elliot but not easy to find. I still think Boyata can do a job for us he has improved dramatically under BR, he had plenty scary moments before BR came in but I think it's unfair to say he has had any prior to injury. I think Jozo had some very slack passes in the Astana game but they were ignored because of the score and everyone talking about how well Bitton played. That said, Jozo is a class act and I don't recall him having any poor games. Be good to see what our new signing has to offer I'm quite happy with us having Jozo, Boyata, Ajer, and Coatzee. Erik for me has been the bombscare so would bite the hand of anyone offering £3m for him.


8.) 22 Aug 2017 11:24:42
Boyata had a great season once he got in and scored quite few goals.


9.) 22 Aug 2017 12:16:52
I'd prefer a Marc reiper over Stubbs and Elliot thought he was outstanding for Celtic
Take nothing away from the other 2.


10.) 22 Aug 2017 12:47:06
Anyone know what the transfer fee is on this one?


11.) 22 Aug 2017 13:21:35
Supposedly 800k.


12.) 22 Aug 2017 13:23:31
Great player Marco would be hard for me to seperate the 3. I enjoyed watching Stubbs not so much for winning the ball but because he was a fantastic passer of the ball from the back almost all diagonal balls to the wingers went to feet. Thought Kennedy was going to be very similar until injury.


13.) 22 Aug 2017 13:56:31
Bit strange that there is nothing on the Club website?


14.) 22 Aug 2017 15:55:33
Didn't Ed say the other day that no deals are likely to be announced until the team are back at the end of the week?

{Ed007's Note - I just can't see the Club and their PR department announcing any signings without Rodgers there for the pictures.}


 

 

30 Jan 2016 17:58:08
Ed, any truth in Feyenoord's Colin Kazim-Richards flying into Glasgow today to hold talks about signing for us?
Is he any good?
Do we need him?
What's the deal?

LeedsCelt

{Ed007's Note - As far as I know there is no deal.}


1.) 30 Jan 2016 22:51:07
Leeds bhoy . seen the bhoy from dobbs shamrock scored in a trial game. was looking him up and watched some clips of shamrocks and the midfielder brandon meile. looked a player . what do our irish posters think of him is he any good in the flesh worth a punt?


2.) 30 Jan 2016 23:26:23
Hh dr Bhoy, its an no brainer signing in my opinion 18 goals in 13 games says something,
I know he's young and like the Smiths youth FA very few make it at that age, but this guy is rated by the best English and Irish scouts.
He's defiantly worth a gamble.


 

 

27 Jan 2016 22:37:44
Ed007: I'm new here, but I assume your the man to ask, I've been reading tonight we're to complete the signing of Manchester City youngster Patrick Roberts.
On loan I assume, did you hear any update?
Do we actually need the wee man?

LeedsCelt

{Ed007's Note - It looks like Roberts will be coming in but if De Bruyne's injury is serious it could scupper it. For me personally I don't think we need him, especially only until the end of the season but the good thing is it means we aren't signing O'Halloran, so every cloud and all that.}


1.) 27 Jan 2016 23:17:23
Yeah totally agree about O'Halloran, but Roberts at 18 year old bought for £11Mill by city seems last season seems like a no brainer to our benefit. 😄👍🍀.

{Ed007's Note - What's the point of bringing him in until the end of the season though? We don't need anyone to win the league, hopefully the treble, so all he'll do is hold back one of our own youngsters.}


2.) 27 Jan 2016 23:24:08
Sorry Ed but I'd rather we signed Michael O'Halloran permanently and developed him than sign Patrick Roberts for 4 months to help Man City develop him, its a no brainer, O'Halloran is a good pacy young forward who would improve greatly playing with better players .

{Ed007's Note - I don't see a 25 year old as a young player and I'd much rather see our young players get a chance than see us bringing in an average SPFL player. Do you really see a 25 year old as a player to bring in as a project and develop? If we are buying players at that age I'm looking for a better standard and quality than Michael O'Halloran who is no better than what we've got, in fact he's worse.}


3.) 27 Jan 2016 23:47:37
That's my original question but now I'm warming to the signing,
Ronnie got a cunning plan lol.
But at least he'll be a great influence on our youths which can't be bad.
Hh Ed👍🍀.

{Ed007's Note - (yes)


4.) 28 Jan 2016 01:08:08
There can not be any justification or sense in signing an 18 year old on a six month loan, that can be of any benefit to Celtic, the only one getting any benrfit is man c, there youngster is just beig kept fit at the detriment of any youngster coming up thru the ranks and being denied a place by this wunderkid, Celtic need to develop and encourage and play their own 18 year olds rather than be a patsy to man c.


5.) 28 Jan 2016 06:27:11
the man city conveyor continues. I wish the deal had been made to join in the summer. 18 or not he is still an 11m player. We have sviatchenko and if that stuttering ljuban deal goes through we will have spent our tin busting 2m!
I'd like to see nesbit getting the odd game but he isn't ready for playing week in week out.
If forrest decides he isn't signing then I'd freeze him out, freeze him out anyway tbh :) .


6.) 28 Jan 2016 11:58:08
Why would you freeze out one of our players that has really come on this year?


7.) 28 Jan 2016 12:42:23
Cmcbhoy. Forrest has stayed fit. I wouldn't say he a has came on any. I still see the same player with the same abilities and same numerous failings. I don't rate wingers with no awareness, poor finishing and final ball. Added to that if he isn't going to sign a new deal we are going to upping his sign on fee which I don't think he deserves considering his input over the last few years.


8.) 28 Jan 2016 12:47:09
Any time I've seen Forrest this year he's been a class apart. I agree that he needs to be more consistent and that his final ball is not always the best but I think if he's managed the right way and stays fit he could well be a top top player. I did hear that he wasn't happy with the contract offered. He should accept anything with the injuries he's had.


9.) 28 Jan 2016 13:54:48
Ed, I agree that we should be going for a better standard of player than O'Halloran, but I think he is better than you are rating him, he would do a good job for us and that seems to be our market nowadays .

{Ed007's Note - We've got enough deadwood and average players at the club without adding to it. Who would O'Halloran get in the squad in front of, who would you drop for him? Don't you think that if he was any good he'd be at a higher level than St Johnstone by the time he reached 25, he hardly got a game down in England and now after two years of being an average player in a poor St Johnstone team you think he could do a job for us? And here was me thinking we were meant to be building a team to qualify for the CL.
By the way I've been told that we've never contacted either St Johnstone or O'Halloran.}


10.) 28 Jan 2016 15:28:25
He is an ok spl player fast but not a great finisher.
The only reason he has been given all this extra attention by the media is to soften blow to rangers when st johnstone turned them over. Now he is a star!

{Ed007's Note - Exactly, and it seems because of TRIFC's interest all of a sudden some people are thinking he's good enough to play for us. If we has signed O'Halloran last summer the fans would have been seething and rightly so.}

Ed, is there any future for Gordon, Rogic and Armstrong at Paradise.
Gordon, fitness and age isn't on his side.
Rogic, I adore the guy but again fitness isn't great and he's down the pecking order since the new arrivals.
Armstrong, again I like the guy, but dosent seem committed, looking elsewhere to advance his career.
What do you think?

LeedsCelt

{Ed007's Note - I don't see Gordon have much of a future and Armstrong will more than likely be off in the summer. As for Rogic a lot of people are willing him to be a top player for us but I don't think it's going to happen and I expect him to move on in the summer too.}


1.) 04 Feb 2018 21:31:29
I appreciate that Ed, in fairness I expected that. II’ll miss Rogic, liked his attitude and style.

{Ed007's Note - Me too mate, I was one of the people willing him on.}


2.) 04 Feb 2018 23:11:41
I think most of us are willing Rogic on to do well, just a shame he can’t stay fit because he’s certainly missed when he’s not playing. If he does go in the summer it’d be good to see him do well wherever he went.


 

 

27 Jan 2018 20:39:40
Good result today, but I feel we're still not performing to the level we ought to be at. I can't put my finger on the problem we have but in the meantime I think we need to work on individual player confidence, team work etc.
don't get me wrong we're getting the domestic results ( barely) but surely Europe has to be the bread winner. On wrods and up words, in Brendan we trust ✊🍀🇮🇪.

LeedsCelt

1.) 27 Jan 2018 21:00:26
I'm hoping once this transfer windows closed, and hopefully brought in another 2 possibly 3 signings, our injured players is Armstrong, rogic, Roberts etc get fit we can steamroll the second half of the season.


 

 

17 Jan 2018 18:49:34
Ed, did we get anything out of Liam Henderson's move to Bari today?
I've seen media confirmation that the deal has been done but nothing about what's in it for us!

LeedsCelt

{Ed007's Note - Yes we'll have received a fee.}


 

 

13 Jan 2018 21:19:19
is Odsonne Edouard worth the £7 Million replacement for Dembele?
At only 19 years old 🤔.

LeedsCelt

1.) 13 Jan 2018 21:44:49
There’s not a chance we will break our transfer record for this kid. Unless he has an unbelievable second half of the season however I really don’t see him getting much of an opportunity if the Mouse and Griff are still at the club beyond January. I reckon he will head back to Paris at the end of the season and will be extremely surprised if we don’t have an alternative replacement lined up for Dembele for the summer.


2.) 13 Jan 2018 22:00:00
Really can’t say on how much I’ve seen. Don’t think anyone can for sure. At the moment I’d have to be dubious. That said, it he was playing for Burnley, he’d probably be worth double that!


3.) 13 Jan 2018 22:21:24
Yeah EPL players are certainly valued treble compared to the SPL,
But what about paddy Roberts at £7 Mill too?
Serious money if we’re to progress in Europe but is it enough?


4.) 13 Jan 2018 22:28:32
Celtic won't spend 7M on a prospect. 700,000 mibees. He hasn't done much wrong the lad, but he's miles away from that kind of money. What did we pay for Ntcham? It is a really odd contract that--as if the buy out clause was there to deter us . . . .


5.) 13 Jan 2018 23:18:56
In all fairness is MD getting near the PSG starting 11 anytime soon? What would the move offer him.


6.) 13 Jan 2018 23:32:36
I was suggesting Edouard will be heading back to PSG at the end of the season Phlip not Dembele.


7.) 14 Jan 2018 00:34:33
Watch his movement, give him good service and he'll score goals, he'll improve his finishing over time and I think if he gets a run in the team when Rogic and Roberts are back he'll show his talent.


8.) 14 Jan 2018 08:55:06
I would be surprised if we spent £7m in total to fix the defence and team in general. I hope Im wrong, but to think we would seend £7m on the lad seems a non starter. he looks to have something about him, but is raw. He is only 19 and I believe he will develop, but £7m with our form seems a bit much.


9.) 14 Jan 2018 11:54:21
When I heard the fee of 7 million was agreed I thought we had got a proper player.

Seen nowt that sugggests he would be worth 1 million never mind 7.

Like you say Celtic won’t spend to improve and will continue to sign projects and cheap older versions.


10.) 14 Jan 2018 13:16:56
I disagree and think EO is worth the money. He hasn't had a run of games and every time he plays he is a threat, given a run of games we would definitely see his effectiveness and he will score goals for fun.
I think it would be less of a risk now after him coming over and understanding the set up how BR wants him to play and the culture and language and what it means to play for the club. Another reason for his slower progress is learning to speak the lingo. In other countries they buy players and don't automatically put them into the starting line up to allow them time to settle and then kick on. This seems to be the pattern that BR is taking and good on him.
Too many players with seemingly good attributes and qualities have come to Scotland and been expected to handle all that immediately and then have failed to make the impact, players with proven experience also. This is just a clever way of ensuring there are no obstacles and to give them the best opportunity of success. We have an abundance of talent just waiting to explode into the first team players we could never afford if they had matured elsewhere. I think we have exciting times ahead but truly need to sort out our defence. HH.


11.) 14 Jan 2018 18:08:04
I think even if we had spent £7m on Dembele, I would be questioning it. Don't think we'll pay that for a replacement.


12.) 14 Jan 2018 19:43:48
Not for me, not yet at least. I'll reserve my opinion until the end of the season. He may prove himself to be worth that, its really up to the lad himself.


13.) 15 Jan 2018 00:14:57
I am quite certain if Brendan Rodgers thinks he is worth the £7-£8 m and if the player is happy to sign for Celtic he will be signed .
Too many of our supporters seem to be only to happy to put our club down and try to cast doom amonst other fans .
