Hearing the Cape Town team have announced the sale of the CB to us.

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.

This is what it's like to be Celtic
Feck about with transfers you know.
Takes that long, a beard is certain to grow, certain to grow.

Kinda sums up my view on our transfer policy.

1.) 27 Aug 2017 11:15:06
This is how it feels to be celtic
Transfer plans revealed months ago
But guarantee the fans
Will still be having a moan, having a moan

Understand your frustration bud but the gaffer told us a couple will be brought in and then a few after qualification, there's still a week left, If BR had told us differently then yeah i can understand the worry and whingeing, so if no one comes in now fair enough whinge away, but i can't see that happening, i expect a few more ins and outs tbh.

2.) 27 Aug 2017 20:19:50
Rogers told us the plan was to get the players bedded in before we started the qualifiers. His words not mine.

We will bring people in but it won't be the first choices obviously. Rivaldo gone now, so where to go with that one. We need a full back as I don't think Ralston is ready yet for CL if he ever will be, which I doubt.

Gamboa might be away and Lustig has been a worry in the last couple of games.

I know I should never thought we wouldn't be flagging about with less than a week left of the CL window.

I don't think that's good enough.



11 Aug 2017 21:43:11
Well that was truly abysmal. The worst performance in a couple of years. Hayes needs sent back. Truly woeful and a worry for Wednesday.

1.) 11 Aug 2017 22:05:52
Bit dramatic mate, granted it wasn't a great performance but until we get our injured players back fit and playing we're going to get some disjointed performances. it's been made perfectly clear that Rodgers isn't going to just sign for the sake of it. Bitton isn't a centre half no matter what anyone says and Forrest isn't a striker either and never will be. I just hope we can get through this Astana tie playing with a centre mid as a centre half and with only one fully fit striker as is I've said unless Rodgers has a change of heart that's what he's intending on doing with the possible exception of wee roberts.

2.) 11 Aug 2017 22:12:31
Bit harsh, hardly truly abysmal. Poor yes. I think your wrong to single Hayes out, most of the players didn't really get going. Give the wee man time eh, too early in his celtic career to judge i feel.

3.) 11 Aug 2017 22:22:01
Agreed. Hard work but a wins a win. The team for Wednesday almost picks itself but to me it's the difference between a 4-3-3 starting wee McGregor or a 4-2-3-1 with Rogic.

4.) 11 Aug 2017 22:49:12
you know what

0-1 celtic.

that's what's wins championships, clean sheet and a lump of luck

need more for astana tho.

5.) 11 Aug 2017 22:53:38
Day one in a Celtic career is judgement day. Hayes needs to step up. He's had lots of game time now.

6.) 11 Aug 2017 23:05:40
Hi lads first time posting 👍

I think some people are forgetting is that is 51 games unbeaten and game is gone now and 3 points in the bag. Astana game will be totally different and perhaps just as tough but then again maybe not. We all just have to get behind the boys on Wednesday night 👌

Hail Hail 💚🍀.

7.) 11 Aug 2017 23:12:14
51 undefeated going for 55 mon the hoops 😏🍀.

8.) 12 Aug 2017 00:26:54
Second game of the season. Win 1-0 and people are calling it 'truly abysmal'. You must be joking. Rested Griffiths, rogic, Armstrong who were obviously main men last season. Go find something genuine to moan about.

{Ed007's Note - Didn't we draw with Thistle at home last season? They seem to be team we either scud or struggle against over the last 6/7 years. It was a poor performance tonight but we came away with the points, it's job done and move onto Wednesday.}

9.) 12 Aug 2017 01:24:35
Well said NT, beggars belief when you read some of the comments after a win to make it 51 domestic games unbeaten. 47 wins 4 draws and you get comments like truly abysmal. Did you support Celtic from 1990-98 Magicpole? A bit of over reaction tonight I think a, " not at our best" would of done.

10.) 12 Aug 2017 07:24:07
We beat them 1-0 just before Christmas and it was a struggle it was my wee boys first game and I remember Thistle actually tried to play football it's 3 points all the same.

11.) 12 Aug 2017 07:39:58
The game should have been finished in the first half just needed the second goal. think we need to calm doen a bit.

12.) 12 Aug 2017 07:50:32
I also think partick will be a decent side this year. Did well last year and looked not bad. I also don't think it was a penalty.

13.) 12 Aug 2017 08:22:09
Abysmal ma erse! If not for their keeper havu g a good night it would have been 3 or 4. Yes we weren't on the top of our game but it's the 3rd game of the season and we are missing key players. Teams who play poorly and still win are only called one thing. champions. get a grip and support the bhoys. IBWT Hail Hail.

14.) 12 Aug 2017 09:23:01
We were stuttering. Our passing was awful. The balance of the team and fluency has dipped. We are going into the two most important games of the season hoping to have at least one striker fit and a midfielder playing at CB. We were told we would have players in and settled to go ahead in these games.

With last seasons team these games wouldn't worry me in the slightest, but we don't. Ntcham looks good, but his final ball last night was nowhere. He needs time, unfortunately we have used it all up and have five days to get it right.

Need this morning we are looking at a striker and CB with jess than a week to go. I'm sorry, but if anybody thinks that's good management I cannot agree.

Hopefully last night was a reaction to the nerves about Wednesday. That griff makes it and my team for Wedbesday would be.

Lustig Simo, Bitton, KT
Armstrong, Brown, Rogic, Ntcham
Sinclair Griff.

It won't be that, but that's how I would go.

15.) 12 Aug 2017 10:22:56
Magic the first half was fine one way traffic gordon could have sat with me if we'd scored the second the games by second half was poor agreed but the pen incident aside we were comfortable.

16.) 12 Aug 2017 10:28:06
It's plainly obvious where we are having problems. The only worry is the lack of any urgency to find solutions. Said in past, if CL money is such an important revenue stream, our lacklustre approach to getting it baffles me.

17.) 12 Aug 2017 12:29:27
i think it's clear at least it is to me that sinky needs a striker in the team to function in his natural way. He doesn't do what he does best when he doesn't have a focal point to his play. A 3rd striker is a must if Rodgers doesn't trust aitcheson. Surely there must be a player we could get on a six month loan to fill in till the moose is back in full flow. Griffiths was never going to be risked if not needed, but 1-0 is dodgy against anyone.

18.) 12 Aug 2017 12:30:51
When all is said and done a win is a win no matter who we play.

19.) 12 Aug 2017 12:32:23
" day one in your Celtic career is judgment day " just as well no one told henke Larsson that eh you nugget.



27 Jul 2017 12:12:38
If we crash out next week, are we completely out of Europe aka sevco, or do we have a play off for the diddy cup?

1.) 27 Jul 2017 12:28:53
diddy cup.

2.) 27 Jul 2017 12:32:44
Magicpole: if we go out next week we will get slaughtered by the Hun press and the Orcs, BR will be hung out to dry and quotes like, oh the same thing happened at
Liverpool all that pish.

3.) 27 Jul 2017 12:42:56
My brother is adamant we are out of the diddy cup too.

4.) 27 Jul 2017 12:53:47
Think we go into europa cup.

5.) 27 Jul 2017 13:04:19
Europa cup play off. If we get through next week and lose the CL play off we go into the Europa group stage.

6.) 27 Jul 2017 13:07:56
We go into Europa league qualifier and the Huns slaughtering any one is a joke in it's self, so I wouldn't worry about it, progress anyone.



12 Feb 2017 17:24:03
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

I hope you are right about Ntcham. Even if you are Armstrong is better.

The choice was vindicated as that is our strongest starting 11. Rogic scored, Armstrong was excellent and Broon was brilliant.

That's how we will line up in Belgium.

Ntcham was gash again last night. I want Rogers to go with Armstrong, Brown and Rogic on Saturday. I know we payed £4m but I'm not convinced he is playing well enough. I hope Rogers isn't influenced by the fact he has spent so much on him rather than looking at form. On that basis he shouldn't start. Armstrong and Rogic are more effective and certainly a far greater goal threat. Ntcham's shooting has so far been literally way wide of the mark.

Having said that he will probably start. :)

We have one fit main choice, would Ajer or Bitton be considered if Boyata or Shev were fit?

No they wouldn't. Of course we have makeshift options. That's not the issue. The issue is why do we have to rely on makeshift.

We are in the group and haven't added to make it hard for either of the two injured players to return. I don't think either of them are good enough, we don't even have them and that's not good enough.

{Ed007's Note - Boyata is fit though.}

I can't believe Hayes is getting mentioned as a possibility. Him and Ntcham should be nowhere near the team. Rogic, Mcgreggor, Forrest and Armstrong are miles better and should be in well in front of those two.

Yet again, dirty cheating officials do all they can to derail us. They know their beloved sevco have no chance against us in the final, if that pile of shite team even make it.

I hope Well do them obviously, preventing them making any more money.

Job done yesterday and now we can look forward to parting the Sheep's baws on Wednesday.

If Sevco make the final we will be swamped with honest mistakes galore. Cheating is in their DNA and they don't even mind winning by cheating.

Part of me wants them to make the final so we can smash them into a red white and blue jam.

Ntcham should be nowhere near the team if we want to win. A man down. He shouldn't get in before any of our midfield ootuons apart from Hayes.

We can't afford to okay Hibs with ten men, the other giving them the ball. He's awful and a total waste if he had cuts £1m never mind nearly five. If we are winning maybe bring him in to try and raise his confidence, but even brimming he's still sliwung us down.

Our defence is weak even if we have all current first choices.

To know that and do nothing in the summer sees us playing on Wednesday that couldn't keep weans oot a Close.

Rogers fecked up big time here. No excuses. We now have Simo out further and no one, not one defender who is class to come in. In fact we don't even have competent. That situation going into the CL group stage is shocking management.

They had better be working on it now because another window where we flap about like beggers in a charity shop looking for a Hilton suit needs to be over.

We don't have a fortune but we have made enough these last two years to buy players that don't give you nightmares thinking about them getting a game.

Giving him more time to slow us down is a mistake. He is awful and should be punted. No doubt he will be played on Saturday and will be gash again, ruining our shape and movement. Giving Hibs hope until he is hooked at 60 minutes.

He's a midfield Regi Blinker. Totally rubbish and in need of getting rid.

The whole balls up signing wise in the summer, has left us worse, not better than we were last year. If you don't think so watch every game we have played so far.

We have invested/ wasted £5.8m of the hard earned CL money. We can't afford to waste anymore.

I watched Rogers post match interview.

I don't know what fecking game he was watching, it must have been on HD or something because it wasn't the game I endured.

All the defensive issues we have are down to Rogers. He talks about being a CL team, then buys two utter duds and fails to bring in defenders.

If he was getting a report card from me it would simply say, Pish. Last year is gone. Sort out your defence and don't even try to defend the signing of Hayes.

I hope the board took note of the need to burst a £20 note come January.

Breath should not be held.
