Rumours in Portugal that we have offered 800k Euros for Sturgeon. You never know.

Fabio Sturgeon Goals and Skills

1.) 19 Jan 2017 22:53:13
he looks. fabio

2.) 20 Jan 2017 01:20:45
If they take 800k it's worth a punt mabey. I was going to go down the route of we need to spend but then the skelper argument comes into play. Is this the work of pedro's time share relative benfica scout me wonders? Anyone follow the leauge and can shed some light?

3.) 20 Jan 2017 08:49:02
rglen8 I would say the calibre of player is more important than the fee. If we go for somebody who the fans can get excited about then it's a bonus if he's coming in on the cheap as well.

4.) 20 Jan 2017 10:49:11
Is see it reported that Darlington Nagbe says he wants to come and hopes we are still interested. Maybe we are playing a hand with his club.

5.) 20 Jan 2017 17:31:09
Got to laugh. We are all on about taking punts at 800k. that's about all rangers have

6.) 20 Jan 2017 22:41:24
He looks utter shite. Certainly no better than we have at the moment. would keep the bench warm. Its only a bargain if you want something but I certainly wouldn't pick him.



23 Nov 2016 22:13:59
A guy we are meant to be signing. He's at game tonight.

Darlington Nagbe Skills and Goals

1.) 23 Nov 2016 22:25:16
I see he tweeted from celtic park.

2.) 24 Nov 2016 11:25:09
The DR saying he's not for sale. Surely they're just meddling as why would he be at CP in the posh seats?

{Ed007's Note - Why would Celtic let a potential signing broadcast he's at Celtic Park when everything's usually done so close to their chest? According to Ed002, Nagbe won't be going anywhere in January, I think the guy's just been over for the game and everyone's jumping to conclusions.}

3.) 24 Nov 2016 13:14:46
Is he a big enough name to be given a posh seat though Ed? If he was just over for the game would he not have had to buy a ticket off his own back and sit with the regular punters? If he had been invited over by the club and given a kooshty number last night you'd think there must be something in it.

{Ed007's Note - Nagbe or his agent could have got tickets from sponsors, he's with WMG which is one of the biggest Sports and Media agencies in the world after taking over SFX and they could get prime tickets for any sporting event in the world, Robbie Keane is represented by the same agency and Jackie McNamara is/was with them too, either of them could have arranged tickets. The trip could have been planned months ago to tie in with the MLS close season and tickets been arranged then with a phone call from WMG. It's easy enough to get a 'posh' ticket if you know the right people, and the fact I've sat in there more than a few times shows they'll let anyone in!
I just can't see the Club allowing any potential signing to go public and attract so much attention using social media. It's a bit odd that he hasn't been at Lennoxtown as well if we are trying to sign him.}

4.) 24 Nov 2016 18:02:34
Or, maybe, he's signing for Barca. I'd take 002's word over any rag. And 007's that he hasn't been at Lennoxtown. I have to say though, him walking around and empty CP with men in suits on instagram did sound suspect.

5.) 24 Nov 2016 18:06:24
I just can't see the logic of him being a guest if we weren't trying to secure him.

If he was just that interested in taking in a game why would we even know he was there?

Who told the press and why?

His agent maybe? And why would he do that?

Celtic? Why not?

Maybe I'm just hoping it to be true as it would make it more likely McGreggor was shipped to Dundee or Aberdeen which I think is his level.

Still, I think there are too many things that don't add up and suggests to me there us more to this than scoring a pish ticket off some agency.

I might be wrong but I can't see it.

{Ed007's Note - Do you think Celtic would conduct transfer negotiations so publicly? That's why it doesn't sit right with me. Nobody told the press anything, they picked it up from the player's social media accounts the same as everybody else. There aren't any quotes from anyone - officially or unofficially - involved to back it up, all we have is a few posts on the player's social media accounts that he was in Glasgow for Celtic v Barcelona.
Ronny Deila, Jamie Redknapp, Andriy Shevchenko and Gaizka Mendieta were all sitting around the same area as Nagbe and his guest - it turns out it might not have been his agent he was with and nobody bothered to check.}

{Ed001's Note - if that was the case, you would have signed a lot of players by now, such as Rooney. Talk about living in a fantasy world!}

8.) 24 Nov 2016 18:54:05
Ed007 I agree our club normally don't allow any rumours or pre publicity on forth coming purchases . This makes me very suspicious about any Nagbe signing .
Maybe some very bad news is about to emerge from Celic, about one of our stars leaving or maybe they feel that they have to be seen to move for him now to prevent others signing .
Funny enough I don't really believe either, so it is just our usual 2+2 =5.

{Ed007's Note - It's just all so very strange, Chris. And if there's any truth in it the Club will need to be extremely careful they don't find themselves in hot water for 'tapping up' - remember our manager does have previous for it. People are forgetting a player must have permission from their club to talk to another club, especially when they have a contract until 2019!
Are these people who have said Rodgers held talks with the player accusing the Celtic manager of breaking the rules and tapping up a player?}

9.) 24 Nov 2016 23:10:23
Ed007 I like most people here have got carried away before almost every transfer window by the popular rumour of this great player signing from some exotic place .
After my initial excitement with a bit of mature reflection, I always mark the rumour down as a non runner . I can never remember been wrong .

I also don't think we will be signing Mc Carthy either.

{Ed007's Note - At least we know the Club are definitely interested in McCarthy.}

10.) 25 Nov 2016 11:05:38
How do we know that?

{Ed007's Note - Because I told you.}

11.) 25 Nov 2016 13:50:23
Oh, I forgot about that.

It's all conjecture. Everything said in here, no matter how vehemently put, is a guess.

My guess is there is something to it, your guess is it izny.

A trawl through the rumours page from the past clearly shows that.

Celtic Guesses :)

{Ed007's Note - There's no conjecture. I said Celtic have contacted Everton about McCarthy for the simple reason that it's a fact. Whether moaning faced morons like you believe me or not is of no concern to me - when I throw a dog a bone, I don't want to know if it tastes good.}

12.) 26 Nov 2016 11:33:33
Throw a dog a bone! Howlin!



18 Aug 2016 14:14:51
So anyone know of the reports linking Delaney to a move the Getmany?

1.) 18 Aug 2016 14:39:32
Werder Bremen posted a picture of him signing a contract.

2.) 18 Aug 2016 14:44:41
It's a done deal mate, away to Bremen in January!

3.) 18 Aug 2016 15:24:10
Ah well.

4.) 18 Aug 2016 16:41:35
Has McFadden no signed yet, I was speaking to his Dad in the Saracen Head and its a done deal. Actually i think that might have been 8 years ago. Demon booze.



21 Aug 2015 15:08:48
Jason Denayer agrees to join Marseille, clubs negotiating, according to L'Équipe

So, the defence calamity goes on.

1.) 22 Aug 2015 09:29:24
Think from the noises City were making he was never coming back to scotlabd on loan.

Young Nesbitt looking a bit Rab. Terrible miss and looks too skinny. Hopefully he gets another chance because as this was a chance to show what he has, so far, nowhere near enough to be a first team player for us.

They have collapsed after his howler.

1.) 12 Feb 2017 21:37:02
Would no say it was a howler!

2.) 13 Feb 2017 07:52:56
Howler IMO. Didn't even trouble the keeper in a 1-v-1.



23 Jan 2017 15:12:23
I have to admit that the class and therefore cost of Bojan would make it extremely doubtful for me he would come. Would be great though.

Bojan Krkic - Goals and Skills.

1.) 23 Jan 2017 21:59:21
As much as I would love it to happen I think its just gossip and taken with a pinch of salt I REALLY HOPE I AM WRONG ON THIS



23 Nov 2016 20:34:02

Can somebody explain how he gets a game?

1.) 23 Nov 2016 21:05:02
BR hasn't made many errors imo, but playing this clown isa big one.

2.) 23 Nov 2016 21:20:47
He was decent tonight.

3.) 23 Nov 2016 21:28:53
Was a mile better than rogic tonight.

4.) 23 Nov 2016 22:25:17
I think he was there to contain for the first hour. I suspect the game plan was to bring Forrest on for MacG and then Paddy on for Rogic. Sinclairs injury wrecked the game plan.

5.) 26 Nov 2016 00:38:37
Magicpole Mc Gregor gets a game because our manager who sees him daily thinks he is the right player to do the job he wants him to do.
Managers don't pick players for the craic.



05 Nov 2016 15:26:56
Seems like our edge is as blunt as it's been these last few games. Griffiths needs to do better or he will be stuck on the bench.




28 Oct 2016 12:49:13
Who do we go with on Saturday

Forrest or Roberts

I would stick with Roberts as he for me is more effective and has a better final ball. I thought he overdid it at times on Wednesday but overall se him as a more consistent and potent threat.

What's the consensus and why?

1.) 28 Oct 2016 12:56:25
I would also drop Bitton who I think is struggling and put in Armstrong.

2.) 28 Oct 2016 12:59:26
I would go for Roberts. I think Forrest has really improved, but I think Roberts is a different level altogether. I would be delighted if we managed to get him permanently - far happier than if a large chunk, or all, of the transfer kitty went on someone like McCarthy instead.

3.) 28 Oct 2016 13:10:35
Roberts more offensive but forrests better in tracking back al trust brendans judgment on this one a think.

4.) 28 Oct 2016 13:37:48
Roberts all day long. Forrest has improved, a bit, but still doesn't do half as much as Roberts.

5.) 28 Oct 2016 14:11:56
With the goals and assists that forrest has had this season I would be happy of see either of them start.

6.) 28 Oct 2016 14:44:08
Personally I much prefer Roberts BUT I understand BR's thinking behind playing Forrest from the start because it allows him to bring on Roberts against a tired LB for the last half an hour of a game and there's only ever going to be one winner there. Think they'll give us a right good game on Sunday, it should be a cracker!

7.) 28 Oct 2016 15:02:31
I suppose that's an alright way of thinking about it kevbhoy.

8.) 28 Oct 2016 16:23:54
Is the game not on Saturday Kevbhoy?

9.) 28 Oct 2016 17:47:33
Look Magicpole I'm taking the wee fella on a haunted walk in the woods tonight and my bottle's long gone so please excuse me haha.

10.) 28 Oct 2016 18:10:44
Forrest has been a pleasant surprise this season. but he seems to be going backwards at the moment. When the chips are down, ie Borussia he loses confidence and seems scared to go on the outside and beat the man, instead preferring to cut inside and look for an 'out' pass. Roberts will try to beat his man all day long, but. he prefers to cut inside too, more effectively than Forrest. Roberts for me and the way Guardiola is binning players at MC, I would love it if we could sneak him.

11.) 28 Oct 2016 20:16:31
Roberts or Forrest? I would like Roberts in but would trust BR's judgement. Bitton or Armstrong is a no brainer for me. Armstrong all the way.

12.) 28 Oct 2016 20:53:27
Forrest better tracking back Mally? Come on man forrest is one of the laziest players iv ever seen at celtic. And he is slowly going back to his former self in recent seasons. Improved under rodgers but its only been a handful of games.

We should be in no rush. His value will only increase. If he us worth £40 now, what will that be with another year in the CL? Not £30m that's for sure.

He is 20. Two more years then sold for £60m after he helps us show we are a force again. Don't be forced into selling. We don't need to and by resisting pushes the price higher. The sums paid for players with half his talent or potential show me he is worth a lot more.

Stand firm, put our team first, convince him another crack at the CL will move him forward even more and if need be tell him he's staying. He's our player. We might be as telling stone but we won't be walked over.

If the quotes are to be believed, then he sounds as if he's up for it. Might be a replacement for Dembele if he leaves in the summer.

Who knows? :)

Did anybody doubt he would stay to try for ten and have s go at the CL. Will be good to shut up the Hun press trying to get him a move to England though

Hoped it was news of keeping wee paddy. Maybe in the summer hopefully.

Nobody said Sinclair is a bad player. What has been said repeatedly is he had a shocker. He was invisible. He gets praised when he plays well and rightly so, but, by feck, he deserves to be slaughtered because of the level of ability he had and the importance of him to the team. He will know he was pish. If he doesn't a look at the game will confirm it.

He needs to man up and take criticism and show in the semi it was just a bad day. It was.

Dembele? As above. Only adding, to be fair he did play in big Clown Shoes as his touch confirmed.

No easy.

We move on but they need to channel the rage into a performance at hampden and Ibrox that will bring their paper house to the ground. Again.

Dembelle was awful. Absolutely awful. Sinclair pulled his invisible man routine. Button the back passing master giving the ball to Boyata and schevchenko, who is getting worse every game, just added to the demands upon my Valium drip.

If we go into the CL with they two at the back we can look forward to many tankings. Simo needs a partner in the summer, Mcgreggor, Button, Gary Mackay Sitter can join them out the door too.

Hopefully this shambolic performance will remind them the treble is still to be won. And if they play like that in April it won't happen at all.

Totally gutted at that today. I hope the players feel a tenth as bad and maybe ensure they make amends at hampden.

There is nothing to smile about today.

We all thought that we shoukd nail them. And we should have. That was gutless and clueless all rolled into one.

Last week first half was terrible, today was even worse.

As for that fanny walker giving them a gee up blabbing I wish that twat would just feck off. He's a boring can't of a commentator to boot.

Macca should keep his mouth shut too.

I really thought that was a shameful display today. No smiling or even a forced grin.
