See some of the papers are reporting that Everton might come in for Dembelle, that might be a good bit of business all round,30 million plus James McCarthy sounds like good business and a nice pot to source a couple of good signings with. That would be progress which would please the board and keep us plebs dreams of CL and 10 in a row going strong.


1.) 18 Jun 2017 11:51:22
I hope he stays but this could be a great move for him if true as lukaku is leaving and could end up with plenty game time.

2.) 18 Jun 2017 13:05:33
£30m + McCarthy would be an amazing bit of business.

3.) 18 Jun 2017 16:12:58
£30m + McCarthy. Rodgers could do some damage with that sort of money without even dipping into his own budget/ champions league or potential VVD money.

That sort of money could pay for the likes of

Jean-Kevin Duverne
Paddy Roberts
Henry Onyekuru
Sardar Azmoun.

4.) 18 Jun 2017 16:15:05
Is McCarthy going to take a big drop in wages then?, I would like McCarthy in but I would prefer to keep Dembelle for another year, his value is only going to increase.

5.) 18 Jun 2017 16:52:07
Nowhere have I seen £30m + McCarthy quoted. I honestly think £23m + McCarthy + a 10 per cent sell on clause would be amazing biz! Hope I am totally wrong btw. HH!

6.) 18 Jun 2017 17:01:52
Clutching at straws lads, no way would we get 30 plus mccarthy.

7.) 18 Jun 2017 19:41:05
10m plus McCarthy would be tremendous business. HH.

8.) 18 Jun 2017 21:45:46
I wish people would stop going on about McCarthy, for the last year or so he's been consistently injured . I also don't really see him controlling many games in the prem or for Ireland. For the outlay I'd think there is more important areas.

9.) 19 Jun 2017 09:47:07
35mill plus mcarthy plus 25 % add on / sell on clause. and they are still getting a bargain . they want him to replace lukaku which means they think he's up to the job . do you think theyd accept 10 mill plus an ok player plus 10% for lukaku. no chance. if he's going to the epl the so called greatest / richest league in the world then its epl transfer money. we don't need to sell. we gave away wanyama. foster . Virgil . with "its only spl he's playing in "mentality . no more.

10.) 19 Jun 2017 15:55:26
Why the rush to sell Dembelle and why link his sale with the purchase of Mc Carthy . Neither are realistic . I think that Celtic should sell Dembelle when it suits Celtic not the SMSM who would like nothing better than see Celtic sel their top stars too early and at a bad price.

11.) 19 Jun 2017 22:12:01
Bhoys i am betting now we don't sell dembele for more than £20 mill. let's not argue the point just wait till he is sold.

12.) 19 Jun 2017 22:13:29
its the papers that are trying to sell dembele, he hasn't told celtic he wants to leave.



14 Jun 2017 10:10:59
Reto ziglier, that comes from the left field, says he has already been offered a contract, plays in KT's position and d is out of contract with FC SIon.


1.) 14 Jun 2017 11:05:11
I thought Izzy had just signed an extension.

2.) 14 Jun 2017 11:56:41
This is a bit of an odd one. Ziegler has a fair bit experience, but Izzy is one of our most experienced players and more than capable of being cover, unless of course he's on the move?

3.) 14 Jun 2017 11:59:49
i doubt he would extended his contract then make him 3rd choice.

4.) 14 Jun 2017 14:01:03
DR reporting they've made calls to Celtic sources and there's no interest in Ziegler. Just trying to drum up interest for himself.

5.) 14 Jun 2017 21:13:09
KT maybe switching sides perhaps. Just a suggestion but has been mentioned here BR likes to change people's position so maybe that's it or he's going to push KT further up field.

Or play this guy at cb as he can play there allegedly.

Or maybe it's a non starter and just paper chat.



31 Mar 2017 13:44:16
Some Rags touting Scott Bain, does anybody know anything? I was hoping that Michael Vorm was comming but with CG signing a 3 yr deal, that may have gone by the wayside.


1.) 31 Mar 2017 18:01:26
I think we have been linked with him in the past. Anytime I've seen him (which is mostly against us) he looks like a decent keeper, makes some gd saves.

2.) 31 Mar 2017 18:19:33
To small what about Angus Gunn at Man City future Scotland keeper if he does not get a England call up.

3.) 31 Mar 2017 18:38:44
Was he not playing for england under 21's last week? Is he allowed to play for scotland as long as he's not played with england first team?

4.) 01 Apr 2017 12:46:48
Is this the same Scott bain that shipped 7 last nite. 9 shots on target 7 goals hardly looks good on him.

5.) 01 Apr 2017 13:09:57
I liked the guy that was on loan to Aberdeen fae Liverpool.

6.) 02 Apr 2017 04:03:56
Kev83 thought he did well for them as well.



24 Nov 2016 17:57:43
Any news on Sinclair, would be a pity if he was out for Sunday?


{Ed007's Note - Nothing to report on Sinclair, we'll probably find out tomorrow.}

1.) 25 Nov 2016 08:53:50
Out for a month.

2.) 25 Nov 2016 17:20:08
Brendan doesn't know whether he can play on Sunday



01 Nov 2016 08:00:26
Anybody know what is the story with LG, flu, food posion, or?


1.) 01 Nov 2016 17:01:05
Gaffer said virus and that's why he has only stay away.

20 Jun 2017 15:05:27
Just read an interview with Fabio Borini, says he has a lot of offers and will decide based on how the club treat his personality both on and off the pitch, he sounds like a big bag of Trouble to me. I hope we keep well away from him.


1.) 20 Jun 2017 15:49:48
I think u are probably right . I also think we are not interested in him at all.

2.) 20 Jun 2017 16:54:31
We are not in for him. He slagged the gaffer off in the press after leaving liverpool.

3.) 20 Jun 2017 19:12:57
And he's always injured, work shy and pure pish. My other half is a Sunderland season ticket holder and they can't stand the guy.

4.) 21 Jun 2017 02:26:02
Thought his preference was Italy anyway?



19 Jun 2017 11:37:02
Can you believe it, maybe 12th July in Windsor park, the opposition support will all be staggering in after a long day marching and pickniking in the field.

Any good cheltenham tips Tim?


1.) 07 Mar 2017 20:21:07
@Malika still doing my "due diligence" lol but I will be posting some tips closer to Cheltenham, maybe on Monday
Also as I keep saying, check out the football rumours betting page on here as ED023 usually comes up with some nice priced horses.

Great to see LG get a decent run out, time wise today, and a goal, hope it puts some sense iinto him, We want him and he will never ever play on a bigger stage than we give him. Come on LG settle your head and get back to business.


1.) 05 Mar 2017 15:11:32
Just in time for sevco. But gms just will not do not good enough even for a fringe player.

2.) 05 Mar 2017 18:12:52
Chuffed for LG he looked sharp.

Felt a bit sorry for GMS today he was getting into decent positions and making good runs but it just wasn't happening. Roberts was much more affective when he came on.

3.) 05 Mar 2017 18:57:47
GMS is not going to cut it. Sorry for the lad but not upto Celtic standard but will do fine as a pro but not with us. I really think BR will see that today. Well done to BR for changing everuthing at half time. The odds dropped to 1/ 2 at half time so had some of that. Not often you can get Celtic st those prices this season. Result never in doubt.

4.) 05 Mar 2017 19:08:18
Roberts back in time to make arse out of wallace.

5.) 05 Mar 2017 19:18:06
celtic v sevco semi final, easy tie.



05 Feb 2017 17:03:18
Ed, what did you make of BR comments on LG after the game? I hope this is not a serious affair, would hate to see LG fall away, for his own well being and Celtics.


{Ed007's Note - LG seems to be falling into old habits and is obviously not applying himself in training. The thing is, RD was saying the exact same things last year about the mentality of Scottish players.
Since day one when Rodgers invited Scott Brown down to his home for dinner he told him what he expected from his players and the need to be a 24 hour athlete to be the best you can and the importance of nutrition and eating right - all the changes RD made are still in place and some have been improved under Rodgers. Rodgers - like most modern managers - is more focused on the importance of sports science etc than RD was.

'Leigh’s a very important part of what I’m looking to do, and will continue to be. He’s a brilliant striker but he has to be fit and available, and to be fit you have to look after every part of your life. This is not slight on his enthusiasm. He’s a great boy and we have a great relationship.
What I answered, I answered when asked the question of him going forward, and it’s very simple. He needs to develop that mentality. This is his life as a professional player. You can’t just settle for what you’ve got. Be the very best you can be. Nutrition in modern sport is very important.
He’s clearly a talent. But if we’re going to be a Champions League club consistently then you need a Champions League mindset. Otherwise you’ll be playing somewhere else and that goes for anybody.'

If RD had said that he would have been crucified. A striker who scored 40 goals for us last season isn't living the lifestyle the Club demands, he either shapes up or ships out. And remember when Rodgers was asked about LG scoring 40 goals last season his answer was 'I wasn't at Celtic last year'.
Or should we get rid of Rodgers for talking all this rubbish about nutrition etc?
And I'm absolutely delighted that Rodgers is talking us up as a CL club, finally we're starting to act like a big club.}

1.) 05 Feb 2017 19:04:05
ED007.Good to hear yer on BR's side now. after all of your negative comments re him in the past. Him and his 'bit of fluff' and all that.

{Ed007's Note - I don't remember being negative, I remember having some reservations after spending 2 years laughing while reading the Liverpool fans discuss his numerous mistakes and his downright bizarre decisions.
Is it negative to say I think he's made mistakes in the last 2 games by not starting with a recognised striker on the pitch, is it negative to question why Rodgers decided to play, Calvin Miller, a player voted one of the best in the world playing as a forward at LB?.}

2.) 05 Feb 2017 19:59:35
Edd07 you make mistakes like everyone, I do recall your views when BR was appointed.

{Ed007's Note - So having a valid opinion and not wetting my panties like some daft wee lassie over Rodgers appointment was me making a mistake? I hardly think so.
So go and dig out all these negative posts I made, it's easy enough to do.
Unlike a lot on here I'll back whoever the Celtic manager is even if I have reservations about them, the new manager just so happened to have given me two years of hilarity as he blundered his was through Liverpool, the way he behaved and how nothing was ever his fault.


And there's plenty more reports of his crazy decisions like the team he sent out to face Madrid in the CL.
Just because someone becomes Celtic manager doesn't erase history and their mistakes. Liverpool fans have a far different opinion on Rodgers than Celtic have, you should ask some of them - ask Ed001 - or doesn't that fit your perfect wee vision of him?}

3.) 05 Feb 2017 20:02:03
Ed007 do you ever think Miller will get a crack up front? I'd love to see him get a chance up top if he was so highly rated there in the past.

{Ed007's Note - Probably not - he'll probably become what's known in Liverpool as being 'Brendaned'.}

4.) 05 Feb 2017 21:00:01
No one ever disputed the importance of nutrition, in fact that was about the only string to Ronnies bow that he was any good at, in fact am sure some of us even called him a nutritionist, with his crazy team selections, even crazier tactics and formations, and mad substitutions, not to mention his post match interviews, he certainly was'nt a football manager.

{Ed007's Note - And yet without him we'd only be sitting on 97 trophies and 3 leagues in a row. Maybe we just shouldn't count the trophies he won. I wonder what Kieran Tierney and Leigh Griffiths thought about RD as a manager, even Tom Rogic who had never been fitter and played 39 games last season.
Wouldn't you class Celtic playing 4-3-3 at home without a recognised striker on the park a crazy team selection? RD got pelters for playing one up front - Rodgers does every match and there's not a peep about it, he then goes one better and plays with none, TWICE!!, and nobody seems to bother.}

5.) 05 Feb 2017 21:29:51
Brendan got Liverpool closer to the title than any other manager has done for years. I will be forever thankful we got him and not that idiot Moyes!

{Ed007's Note - And what a laugh that was. As they say, second is just the first loser.}

6.) 05 Feb 2017 21:56:21
What was funny about it?

{Ed007's Note -

7.) 05 Feb 2017 22:08:55
Bit of a difference in how the team are playing from last season compared to last.

8.) 05 Feb 2017 22:45:18
I think we are seeing a very different man now in BR.

He was a bit of an arse at Liverpool and that stupid ch5 documentary was a horses arse of an idea - as it made him look like a horses ares.

I think since then he is humbler - and learned a lesson - and now at a team like celtic he is rebuilding his reputation as man manager and a good tactician.

I always want the best for celtic and when he was appointed I was disappointed. I want someone in high demand at the top of their game - but we ain't going to get PG or JM (would you really want them) . I think now - he is the best we could get in the current set up and with his point to prove, we are a good fit for him too.

{Ed007's Note - He certainly looks to have learnt a lot and comes across a bit more humble for want of a better word - and he can work the media up here in a way they've never came across.
The Channel 5 documentary was another high profile cock up with hilarious consequences.}

9.) 05 Feb 2017 22:47:46
The right Edd, Brendan told him to slip!

{Ed007's Note - But it was just sssoooo funny.

10.) 06 Feb 2017 07:20:03
Brendan has the potential to be the best Celtic manager since Jock Stein. If the board back him property then I believe he can get us competing properly in the champions league.

11.) 06 Feb 2017 08:02:34
I don't see the point in bringing up the past . We should only judge Rodgers on what he Does here. If he could screwed up at Liverpool too bad . he hasn't screwed up here yet. Another point about this unbeaten season. I would rather bring the young bhoys through than go unbeaten.

12.) 06 Feb 2017 09:39:28
I'm one of the guilty 1s that called Ronnie D a nutritionist. It seems BR has that mentality also but has a few more strings to his bow.

13.) 06 Feb 2017 11:35:36
What's even funnier is the state Klopps got them in they are terrible, but agree ed the ch5 doc was horrendous.

Onyekuru is maybe not coming, I had a couple of pints with a current epl players father on Sunday who told me that Onekuru is in constant touch with Kevin Miralles at Everton, and that he will be signing for them for 4million with à one million tax free signing on fee or him. James mc Carthy is still on the radar, he has no future at Everton and has told them he will not go to clubs like stoke, Bournemouth, etc, etc, and to sort out something better, he also told me that maybe we will sign a young right winger from Liverpool on loan, english 20 yr old. Just a chat over a couple of pints but you never know.

Such a pity that BR doesn't really have complete faith in LG, but as one of LG defenders on here when he first came, and impressing on doubters here how much he knuckled down and improved, I can still see that BR will look even with Dembelle for another CL striker. I just hope that both of them for whatever reasons do not fly the coup this summer.

Tim, I got 2 tips from a friend of mine who is over there and has a small interest in a couple of horses, non of them good enough to run at Cheltenham.
The first was Willoughby court, it won yesterday at 14/ 1.I was out and did not get the message until too late. The other one is Rockgone, running in the 4 10,it is 28/ 1,so I am going to do a mugs ew double with your Rocklander, and if it comes in will buy you a pint somewhere in the Bahamas next week.
