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?


{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?


{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.}

Looks like £6.8million was put in front of the City bosses within the last fortnight with a large sell-on-clause down the line for a permanent move for Roberts 🙏.


1.) 19 May 2017 16:30:09
Surely that couldn't have been our first offer. I would expect that perhaps that equates to City's total outlay? Good to hear we're in for him permanently though.

2.) 19 May 2017 20:56:09
JimTim I don't think City are the type of club to entertain daft bids tbh. The amount of money they splash, they won't be keen on humming and hawing over a million quid or so. Give them something serious and see what they say.



23 Apr 2017 20:16:46
I thought Roberts was incredible today and throughout the season, I would see our priority in signing him permanently, if not, another season loan.
Although £12Mill is outside our budget, I can't see him been happy at City in the seconds.


1.) 23 Apr 2017 20:37:19
LeedsCelt: The fee for Roberts is about £5-6m it's the possible add ons that could take it to the £12m mark . However as you say will PR be happy to sit in the reserves or worse the under 21s . We need to test the waters they can only say no .

{Ed007's Note - Roberts has no future at City and I don't see City playing silly buggers over a couple of million quid, they're not exactly counting the pennies and they know the market we work in. I think it'll come down to Paddy himself, I don't see any top EPL teams coming in for him and he is enjoying his time up here so hopefully he fancies hanging about for a few more years winning trophies and playing in the CL.
Considering we've paid a loan fee for him I'd slap in a cheeky £4million bid and we won't be far away from City getting their initial outlay back on the player.}

2.) 23 Apr 2017 20:55:18
Couldn't agree more ED, Celtic must do all they possibly can to get this boy on a permanent deal. He won't get anywhere near the first team at city, purely down to the money they have and the season they've just had. I'd imagine they'll spend mega in the summer. Like u i think the big factor in it will be if Roberts is willing to hang around in Scotland for another 2/ 3 years, which given his age, given guaranteed first team football, European football and winning trophies, i think it would be a good fit for him. Here's hoping.

{Ed007's Note - There was talk a while back about another loan so we know at least the clubs are talking about him but I'd rather get a permanent deal done to let us make money in the future. We could always offer City a buy-back clause or even a percentage of the future fee because he would certainly go for a big fee if he keeps progressing, especially with CL exposure.
Rodgers signing a new long term contract will also help him decide, he knows how the manager works and exactly what's required from him in a Rodgers team so there would be minimal disruption to his progression as a footballer and he's already settled here in his personal life so no disruption there either.}

3.) 24 Apr 2017 16:13:12
I am sure I have posted this a few weeks ago but heard that Roberts had taken out another years lease on the flat he rents so hopefully that's a sign he is happy to stay?

{Ed007's Note - Was that you? I was going to mention that but wasn't sure if I had dreamt it or not! I hope everything's OK with the family btw buddy.}



02 Mar 2017 20:55:35
Whats Jason Cundy's problem with us? he slaughters Celtic and says we've less fans than some English League One sides and we wouldn't last in the EPL and that's just a fraction of his raging critical outburst about the club.


1.) 02 Mar 2017 22:03:09
Who's Jason Cundy?

2.) 02 Mar 2017 22:10:08
He's just a total clown who wants to rile Celtic fans. I turn off if I hear him as he talks utter garbage. Adrian Durham is the same.

3.) 03 Mar 2017 00:02:48
Jason cundy seems to love Rangers. Talking about Wsrburton as manager of the year in SPL. One week later Warburton had lost 2 games on the spin and was gone. He tslks crap. How is it possible we have less fans than any keague one club. Stadium 55500 no championship club have that. I conceed we have less fans thsn Man u, Barcelona Real Madrid etc but no way less than some championship clubs. He really gets on my t#t#.

4.) 02 Mar 2017 23:42:58
@leedscelt - Sutton slags Rangers and he's a hero on here ( short memories after he ripped into Delia last season and got it tight on here ) , Cundy slags Celtic and you get all precious. Man up son.

5.) 02 Mar 2017 23:49:35
how many League One clubs get over 50 thousand every home game? There ain't many!

6.) 03 Mar 2017 07:13:07
Johnny celtic park holds 60.000 fans more than anythkng in the championship. and apart from man u more than anything in the epl he hasn't got a clue whst he's talking about. Uj big sutton did give deila it tight but so did about 60% of us on here and he was right. just like hez right when he's critizing your basket case of a club. a posed the question to my sevco supporting work colleagues to tell me what hed said that wasnt true and iam still waiting on an answer so man up sevconians and learn to handle the truth.

7.) 03 Mar 2017 07:23:43
Cundy is just trying to be controversial without having any facts except twitter number's!

By cundy logic ie number of Twitter followers equals success then joey barton will be the best player in England. How did he get on in the spl again did he actually last 4 months.

UJ what was it he got right about diela? Sutton I agree is a hero but it's coz he calls it as it is and your team are pish so he reminds you off it. He's not exactly telling a lie is he.

8.) 03 Mar 2017 09:24:38
Sutton calls it as he sees it and does not try to put a nice spin on it when a subject relates to Celtic. (unlike certain other members of the Scottish Mainstream Media)

9.) 03 Mar 2017 11:37:41
@tick67 - he was getting it tight on here for daring to question Delias ability.
P. S. Currently the 3rd best pish team in Scotland, soon to be the 2nd when the Sheep do there usual late crash and burn.

10.) 03 Mar 2017 11:42:48
Union jack, The difference between cundy and Suttons comments are big. Sutton actually has a clue about the subject he's talking about! Said warburton wasn't up to it ages ago.

11.) 03 Mar 2017 12:24:48
Cundy should spend less time on twitter and actually watch a celtic game.

Sutton has played in the spl and watches the games so is better placed to comment.

UJ is the new banner #going4second.

12.) 03 Mar 2017 14:26:57
Not sure if I'm thinking about the right guy, but if he's that one from talksport, he just says any thing to get a reaction, and he knows if he says something controversial, even if it's rubbish, it means he'll get people phoning into the talk shows, as for what Sutton said about Ronnie, only the worshippers would have disagreed with him., cause he talked sense much as the same as he is talking sense about the basket case that is The rangers.

13.) 03 Mar 2017 15:10:12
my answer to these clowns down south is come up and take in a game on champions league night and see the atmosphere at a packed celtic park and then see if they think we are still a small club.

14.) 03 Mar 2017 15:50:56
This nobody is just a clown drumming up a bit of noise so someone notices him. Its the usual south of england ignorance.

15.) 03 Mar 2017 16:53:34
Uj some on here didn't like suttons criticism but that's life. but he's a straight shooter and quite refreshing unlike the cheerleader bfdj. but he'll b ok in the eyes of sevco fans because he never tells it how it is he's an embarrassment.

16.) 03 Mar 2017 20:28:09
@mallythetally - he's just the Simon Cowell of football commentators whose opinions don't matter in the wider football community. And DJ is just vanilla toeing the party line whose opinions also carry no weight.

17.) 03 Mar 2017 21:59:37
As oppposed to bfdj he's doing no bad he's on bt motd and the radio slot so he's doing something right uj.

18.) 04 Mar 2017 11:44:02
@mallythetally - Sutton just has more platforms to spout his nonsense doesn't mean he's any better. Remember the saying ' opinion's are like arseholes, we all have one etc.

19.) 04 Mar 2017 13:32:09
Aye and big djs is bigger than most.



25 Jan 2017 23:11:48
Congratulations to BR and squad equalling the 50 year unbeaten record in his short period here.
Looking forward to the future with this run, no doubt CL qualifiers has to be a given if he gets the continued board support and back up.




31 Dec 2016 20:19:27
Hope BR ankle damage isn't too serious that he doesn't get a night out tonight, he thourghly deserves the celebration.
Happy new year to all tims here, Hail Hail ✊️🍀.

Its reported as an additional season lone extension, not a permanent move unfortunately.
