Nitcham off to Porto, I think it's ok, apart from one or two efforts, he threw in the towel when Dembelle left, big money plus Mbemba, would be a great deal, no messing about, just get it done.


1.) 16 Jan 2019 18:59:58
Not for me the bhoys going to be a star.

2.) 16 Jan 2019 19:22:32
Ntcham is quality. He is taking a bit of time to get up to full speed following injury and the emergence of Christie. I'm shocked at the attitude of fellow fans towards him leaving. For his age he has done very well for us and carried the midfield at times. There is not another player like him in Scotland, fact. I would say he will leave for a record transfer in Scottish football in a few years if we get him fit, playing regularly and doing it in Europe. I wonder how many fans calling for a swap with Mbemba have ever seen Mbemba play?

3.) 16 Jan 2019 19:45:05
Good post Buster. I'd like us to keep Ntcham as he's a quality young centre mid. But every player has their price. As for Mbemba, I always remember him popping up in these best young talents articles etc. but I wasn't impressed with what I saw at Newcastle. Still young though.

4.) 16 Jan 2019 19:58:26
It this true or just the same Porto rumour?

5.) 16 Jan 2019 20:27:42
Got to agree Kev, it’s as simple as that the bhoy is going to be a star and as buster said when fully match fit he will grow into controlling the strings in the centre of the park. Sky is the limit for Ntcham.

6.) 16 Jan 2019 20:38:17
Couldn't disagree more Malika, the guy's going to be top drawer and a few bad games won't change that. He was the main man in midfield last season and he made everything tick. I'd play him and McGregor and him together with Christie in the No. 10 position at least until Tam comes back from the Asian Cup. A wee run of games alongside a guy who's been consistency personified all season will bring out the best in him rather than playing next to Brown who's arguably been equally as poor in recent weeks.

7.) 16 Jan 2019 20:45:48
Ed hit the nail on the head. He's been playing beside brown who's touch has gone and passes have been horrendous. So Ntcham has had to cover or recover and drop deeper than he would like.

8.) 16 Jan 2019 21:32:15
Toprig there’s no way you can blame Brown for Ntcham’s poor form. I’m a big Ntcham fan but his form leading up to the game against that lot was poor that’s why he found himself on the bench for a few games. The guy is bound to have a dip in form he can’t be outstanding every game but I’m not having that this was down to playing beside Broony.

9.) 16 Jan 2019 21:50:17
I would go with the theory that Brown makes Ntcham not play to his full potential, I don't know, maybe there is a place for Brown in midfield now, in a sort of Nobby Stiles role, but I think his age has caught up with him now and he holds the team back.

10.) 16 Jan 2019 22:15:18
Ntcham must be a good player, if he wasn't the MSSM wouldn't bother trying to upset him and create doubt in his mind and in the minds of gullible supporters .
We would be better supporting NtCham and encourage him to play at the height of his ability more often.

11.) 16 Jan 2019 22:26:41
Nitcham will be top drawer if he puts in the work.
To say playing with brown has made nitcham poor is just utter nonsense.
Nitcham didn’t try a leg in the sevco game and hid the whole second half, at least brown put himself about, wasn’t his best game but brown never hides.

12.) 16 Jan 2019 23:37:10
Ntcham is too inconsistant to be a top drawer player. Take what we can get for him now and move on.
He looks good when he has plenty of time on the ball, but away from home when he gets closed down quicker or playing against good opponents, he struggles to play a first time ball accurately. Most plays stop with him giving the ball away needlessly.
I also feel that sometimes he is not up for the fight and he can put more effort in.

13.) 16 Jan 2019 23:58:21
I think Ntcham and McGregor would work a treat in the middle better than Brown and Ntcham. Both rangy passers and both a goal threat too. Agree everyone has their price another season to prove his worth wouldn't be too bad but sell if he's only going to play second fiddle especially if the price quoted is right. But take it with a pinch of salt as it's all likely unsettling tactics.

14.) 17 Jan 2019 01:08:15
There is a player in Ntcham and we have seen glimpses of it but his attitude doesn't look right at times. If that can't be fixed and Porto are offering serious cash then sell but only if the money is reinvested in the playing squad.

15.) 17 Jan 2019 09:54:07
There may be a player in nitcham but is he the guy u want in the trenches. The games against hibs and rangers in particular he was shocking. He doesn't look like a guy who wants to be there. Yes he is quality but Personally l would take a good offer as l think if it does come he would want to go.

16.) 17 Jan 2019 10:42:45
Ntcham has played about 10 good games for us. Find him good when it's going good but when we have to dig in he goes missing.

17.) 17 Jan 2019 11:25:38
It wasn't about not hiding, or trying his best, it was the fact he was there instead of McGregor, he disturbed the Feng Shui of the whole midfield, with Brown in midfield he takes over a role, or a position that McGregor or Ntcham would have been interpreting to a much better advantage, but because Brown is more senior and is seen as the 'beating heart' of the team, he is given too much deference by his teammates where as the opposition don't hold him in such high esteem, and they exploit his weaknesses whereas a younger Brown would have brushed them aside, it's called getting old, you always think you are just as fit and effective as you were when you were twenty three, but you're not, you're older and more experienced, but slower, someday you just got to accept it, c'est la vie.

18.) 17 Jan 2019 16:14:26
Aindoh who is Feng Shui? Not another loan signing today I hope?

19.) 18 Jan 2019 00:40:58
I may have said this before but I think Ntcham brings a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ to our midfield.



23 Dec 2018 13:55:01
James McCarthy and Omar Niasse both available on loan from Everton, take both of them asap.


1.) 23 Dec 2018 15:29:37
We don't need McCarthy and he is more injury prone than our entire squad.

2.) 23 Dec 2018 17:34:40
McCarthy broke his leg earlier this year making a last ditch tackle would hardly call that injury prone.

3.) 23 Dec 2018 19:06:43
Not including his broken leg, he has had about 7 injuries at Everton causing him to miss 10games on average each time, he has been at Everton 3/ 4years now. I would say that's injury prone.

4.) 23 Dec 2018 22:20:48
That right ice man?

Ok here goes.

2010/ 11 Oct 23rd - jan 10th. 79 days

2014/ 15 Nov 9th - jan 31st. 27 days hamstring

2016/ 17 Aug 23rd - Oct 5th. 43 days groin

2016/ 17 Dec 19th- jan 7th. 19 days

2016/ 17 Mar 24th - June 30th 98 days

2017/ 18 Aug 11th - Oct 17th 67 days

2017/ 18 Oct 25th - Dec 26th 62 days

Then less that a month later breaks his leg making a last ditch tackle on Jan 20th.

{Ed007's Note - If you got that from transfermarkt I doubt it's accurate, but if you're into that have a look at Scott Browns over the same period and he hasn't had a DOUBLE leg break....


Tom Rogic:


Leigh Griffiths:


James Forrest:


All seem to be as 'injury prone' as James McCarthy.......

And even KT has had 3 spells out this year injured:


Maybe time to cash in on him if he's starting to miss so long?

5.) 23 Dec 2018 22:54:08
Jeez Dr Kev. You got the guys whole medical history there. 😂Sounds like some bull there to me. 206 days missed with hamstring injuries I ain't buying it. Look I'm not doubting the guy has had his fair share of injuries but imo I think he'd be a great addition to our squad and could well replace Brown providing he stays injury free 😉.

6.) 23 Dec 2018 23:44:40
In fact big Sam said he was mentally scarred by his injury record and how often he injured the same area.

7.) 23 Dec 2018 23:32:32
Rumours on balotelli. Any news ed.

{Ed007's Note - Brexit is a farce and the Gatwick drone is a false flag.}

8.) 23 Dec 2018 23:40:03
Ed I have been quite vocal about how often rogic is injured, as have you.
Forrest was certainly an injury prone player until the last few years.
Griffiths with the exception of what he is going through I'd say he's becoming injury prone as well.
Even Scott Brown a lot of people were saying he was to injury prone until Rogers came in.

I did get that info from transfer market but there is no way anyone can say McCarthy doesn't break down regularly.
I think wilshere is a great player but wouldn't sign him for same reason.

{Ed007's Note - My point is every player misses games with niggling injuries throughout the season - take out McCarthy's double leg break and his injury record is no worse than some of our star players. Most of Jack Wilshere's 'injuries' were cover ups for failed drug tests.}

9.) 24 Dec 2018 10:59:12
Talking of Injury prone players Andy Carrol Wtf?!

{Ed001's Note - that is a man who missed over a year because he fell off a bar stool drunk at a casino owned by Derek Llambias. And when I say drunk, I mean absolutely blind drunk and it was less than 48 hours before a game. Almost all, if not all, of his injuries can be traced back to the effects of his heavy drinking.}

10.) 24 Dec 2018 13:44:03
I still say get him signed just for the nights out! 😂.

11.) 24 Dec 2018 14:13:53
Silly boy wonder if players like that ever look back in regret at what they could have done! On his day he’s unplayable sadly that’s once every 3/ 4 years.

{Ed007's Note - With the money in the modern game I doubt many of them will.}

12.) 24 Dec 2018 16:57:14
Just send us up all the junkies and alkies I'm sure Super Slipper could use them.

13.) 25 Dec 2018 09:44:27
Scotzine story linking us with loan for McCartney today 😂 I can't see it with Nir back from injury we have too many players in that position as it is and it's not an area we need to waste money on.



31 Aug 2018 21:42:13
Any offers for Boyata? All interest gone away?


1.) 31 Aug 2018 21:52:12

Might as well sell him and throw in KT and Ntcham too.

This is the most disgusted I have ever been as a Celtic fan.

2.) 31 Aug 2018 22:20:24
Well I’m sure if u have a ticket I can get rid of it for you. Pure riddy some of the rubbish being spouted.
Edouard was signed at the start of the window as Dembelle replacement all this talk of it’s late in the window blah blah blah is bull it wa always about getting the right fee for him. Yes the last 2 days hasn’t been handled great but I’m sure if Lyon had started at £20m+ it would’ve been done in a flash. He goes with my best wishes (and I’m glad it’s now don’t want unhappy players) but no player is bigger than the club. We move on it’s time to forget the way we feel about the board or rubbish behind the scenes it’s time to get back to why we’re all here in the 1st place supporting the TEAM. Let’s give these manky persons a right doing on Sunday and let that scouser know exactly what he’s walked into.
Glasgow’s green and white this is our city.

3.) 31 Aug 2018 22:20:29
Niall it’s not that bad we Can still sign free agents when the window closes😎.

4.) 31 Aug 2018 22:24:31
It is definitely the worst transfer window in last 5-6 year. Sell our best player and no replacement. Ok we got a cb on loan. But c'mon are the board trying to let rangers win the league. We could of had a replacement for dembele lined up no bother and a replacement for boyata as well lined up. We could have brought in nearly 30 million selling these 2 and even spent 15 million on replacements and board would have 15 million extra now we have lost our best player with no replacement and a huffy defender that will just slate the club to anyone that asks him when sold. Great transfer window 👌.

5.) 31 Aug 2018 22:37:19
Welshy. Agree . Draw line. Move on . COYBIG. 🍀🍀🍀.

6.) 31 Aug 2018 23:04:40
thank jebus for welshbhoy. How do you manage to keep your mind so limber?

Not enough money for Dembele with 2 years to go, but Rodgers _obviously_ cut the moose loose. I'm worried that sets a precedent: make waves and you get what you want. What a tantrum. and a real setback.

we ought to have about 40M to throw at the right player now, LOL. Iniesta to have a last minute rethink?

7.) 31 Aug 2018 23:14:44
5 or 6 decades more like. A complete self inflicted shambles. We need men to lead the club, not people who at a challenge with fear and worry. Life’s a risk, I would much rather we went down fighting like feck than die on our knees.

Stand fecking up Celtic, throw a barsteward pinch!

8.) 31 Aug 2018 23:28:32
Dry your eyes we are a feeder club now, players come and go, we may never qualify for the champions league again, because of the set up and the fact when we get a great player they will be off after a couple of years so no chance of building a team, I hate it as well but it's the reality.

9.) 31 Aug 2018 23:39:15
The season before dembelle came in griff score 40+ goals that year. Edourde is imo a better all round player than dembelle. Dembelle has his firness issues so 20 million. Bon voyage big man, cheers for the memorys.

10.) 31 Aug 2018 23:42:34
Welshy I agree what you’re saying about backing the team (it’s a shame the board don’t share the same view) however BR said this week he needs 3 strikers. I’m happy with Griff and Edouard but I pray to god they stay fit and healthy which has been an issue for them both recently. That’s the reason Lawwell and the board get away with shortchanging the fans year after year. They know our loyalty will never go away. We will NEVER turn our back on our beloved Glasgow Celtic. We will continue to turn it week in week out. We will continue to buy merchandise and support our club because it’s in our DNA to do so and I feel the board are very well aware of this and that is why year on year despite CL revenue and incoming transfer fees very little is invested in the team. Despite this I will continue to support Brendan and the Bhoys 💚🍀.

11.) 31 Aug 2018 23:48:33

Do you remember last season when we had 3 strikers? At times we struggled to keep more than 1 fit and both Eddy and Griff have already been injured this season and we are only 10 games in.

BR said himself with the number of games we play we need 3 strikers.

I’m not bothered about Dembele going but we are now significantly weaker than last season with the guys we have lost and with Sevco getting stronger we have a real fight on our hands for title number 8.



13 Jul 2017 09:13:59
The New No 7 is on his way, he will be announced just before the KO against the mini Huns tomorrow, loan again this season, with fixed price to buy at the end of season, Welcome. Back Sir.


1.) 13 Jul 2017 09:24:36
could a new 7 be an old 27?

2.) 13 Jul 2017 09:45:36
I am very excited about this, I got it from a friend who is a man city nut, and I really hope it is true and in the bag.

3.) 13 Jul 2017 10:14:40
Believe it when it happens Malika mate.

4.) 13 Jul 2017 10:19:19
Dont want any loan player having the 7 jersey tbh, even with option.

5.) 13 Jul 2017 11:11:23
Why bother negotiating a loan with a fixed price if we want to buy him now?

6.) 13 Jul 2017 11:38:04
Heard a few days back BR wants as many as 3 more top players in so i'm praying Paddy is one of them. Said it before if we can get this lad long term he would be our best signing in 20 years. Don't think Tierney will want to leave any time soon but if he had his buddy beside him for 10 in a row we can build a team around that 2. Hope we continute to get rid of the players who clearly don't have a future at the Club and we get more of the youths out on loan to other SPL clubs as its worked with Ajer and Christie. Pains me to say it but i now think Henderson will have to move for the sake of his career, i think he's fantastic and will follow his career regardless where he goes but we now have so many midfielders i don't see him holding down a place unfortunately. Same applies for Bitton.

7.) 13 Jul 2017 13:10:12
You're mate is a man city nut but somehow knows when celtic will unveil a new signing? Knowing about the signing, I could see as viable but not knowing when Celtic will unveil.

8.) 13 Jul 2017 16:04:16
If you were down to your last tenner, how many would stick it on Paddy being announced tomorrow?

No one?

Thoughts so.

I think this is a pile, but I hope it's true.

9.) 13 Jul 2017 17:47:37
Loan player who is in line to be first loaner to get a testimonial!



10 Jul 2017 11:21:08
Just heard from a friend of mine that Paddy Roberts is not included in the Man City, pre season tour squad. My friend is a bit of a city fanatic and normally doesn't miss much that goes on there, maybe good news for us?


1.) 10 Jul 2017 13:23:54
It hasn't been named yet. Is he a pal of Pep?

2.) 10 Jul 2017 13:30:50
Beat me to it. I have looked over all the city pages and they only came back today for training and nothing confirmed on squad.

3.) 10 Jul 2017 14:34:39
We are open to wishful thinking re wee paddy, in uo there with the best of them, but we need to not take anything at face value.

I will be gutted if paddy doesn't return. I know I'm not alone there.

4.) 10 Jul 2017 14:47:49
I asked my pal, about the squad being named, he told me that those going were told yesterday, public announcements I do not know about,

5.) 10 Jul 2017 18:17:56
I hope you're right. That would make my day.

is there anyway you could help with finding out if we have sold our allocation for the Valencia away game? Valencia have issued a statement saying that tickets will be available, 2 nominated per person, but they also say that anybody who is trying to access the home stands who is identified as a non Valencia fan shall be ejected, very complicated for me to understand. Have you seen the statement? Can you make any sense of it?


1.) 04 Feb 2019 13:20:14
I was confused by that too. It says you can't buy online in advance and that you can only buy them in person from their ticket office, but the name on the ticket must match yours? Clear as mud. I've never been to a Euro away, but if I thought I could just get a ticket over there then I'd be very tempted.

2.) 04 Feb 2019 13:23:28
Mal Hopefully that statement is just for uefa's benefit. If it’s not a sell out which I doubt it will be in their end I’m sure they will sell tickets.

Do you think we are going to out Boyata now? Do we have a bid for him? I would shoot him myself but money is money and his negative contribution has cost us enough already.

Well he must be very hopeful of a move to epl, english championship clubs, with the execption of the recently relegated clubs are now playing an average of 11k a week, less than half of what he has knocked back. Good Luck to him, the Celtic jersey is obviously to small for his ego, so out him asap.

He has lost the plot in Spain, he does not make the second string at Real because they do not know him as he trains with the first team, and last season Zidane made him train on his own. He is 19 yrs old and on 86k a week, he will not becoming anywhere near us.

If any of them offer 15 mil then take it, his head is up his arse now so say thanks and ship him out, he his no good for us now. We have Griff who can put the ball in the nett just as regularly as MD, the only difference is LG wants to be here, and after a 40 goal season had every right to be tetchy when left on the bench.
None of the big boys in Europe have even looked at MD this season so 15/ 20 is a wonderful price.
Sell on % is difficult, but at least we have a good commercial guy in Lawell who will work his chops off to secure a deal, whatever you might say about him regarding spending makes no difference as he certainly knows about earning money for CFC.

No need to worry, Lenny will be bringing James McClean in next season and then our corners and free kicks are taken care off, and he will show all what commitment is. A 29 yr old,77 caps, and bags of expierance, problem solved.

It is all to do with last summer transfer window, the damage was done then and has been well hidden, what I mean by that is the fact that the first half decent opportunity that comes up, he is considering taking it. His love for Celtic is beyond doubt and even the honnour of a treble treble or taking us to 10 in a row is not enough to keep him, the questions must be asked of Mercers Desmond and Lawell, they did the same to Lenny, pulling the money from under his feet. We really have to question the ambition of our board, or rather maybe the business model which suits them and shows scant regard for us supporters. BR will no doubt be given pots of money by them to win the FA/ League cup.
I hope the board will do as much as possible to try and keep him.

This is no easy game as many on here think, we shall have to be at our very best to come away with a victory. Valencia have a problem in la liga in that they have drawn 11 games, they are scoring and defending well, just don't have enough to get a lot of the games over the line. We will need to be sharp from first to last minute tonight. We can do it COYBIG.
