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.



29 Aug 2016 14:41:42
Some bloggers saying James McCarthy is booked in for medical today? Can really not believe that, anybody got any info?


1.) 29 Aug 2016 15:50:56
Would love this to be true but not getting my hopes up until i see him in the green and white.

2.) 29 Aug 2016 16:36:59
Thought he was injured and needed an op?

3.) 29 Aug 2016 16:37:19
We're the bookies favourites to sign him at the minute.

4.) 29 Aug 2016 17:21:24
Neil Lennon
Roy Keane
Moyes were all bookies favourites to be our new manager at one point.

5.) 29 Aug 2016 17:41:02
So Kev you are telling us there is a 1 in 3 chance?

I know you were talking about Lennon coming back this Summer but couldn't resist.

6.) 29 Aug 2016 18:03:02
Hope not, would not be much better. decent player, nothing more.

7.) 29 Aug 2016 17:59:54
Conflicting reports now circulating McCarthy to Celtic is not happening. Another midfielder on the cards? 🤔.

8.) 29 Aug 2016 18:32:43
What's the info Skinny? What you hearing?

9.) 29 Aug 2016 18:54:42
skinny you look like your puttin a wee bit a weight oan no?
here is yur sister no fat?
ur iz it ma glesses lookin thru yur letturboaks.

10.) 29 Aug 2016 19:33:43
Skinnybhoy gie it a rest Mate eh! Lol. what reports? Utter pish!

11.) 29 Aug 2016 19:52:35

12.) 29 Aug 2016 20:14:28
😆😆😆😆😆 nice one digi! U don't half set urself up for sum pelters SB! Lol.

13.) 29 Aug 2016 20:21:31
Why do a lot of people give skinnybhoy grief whether it's made up or not who cares it's a rumor and banter site would be a lot worse if wasn't telling us his info don't let them put you off kid 1 day you will get one right lol.

14.) 29 Aug 2016 21:23:56
Skinnybhoy's in his mid 60's - he's just retired, and because he's bored he's noising all us up! Well that's what my source told me, I'll try and get round all my contacts over the next few hours, if I'm wrong and he is a kid then apologies Gordo, and your good self Skinny!

15.) 29 Aug 2016 21:39:26

He gets a hard time because he talks poo.

We could all claim to know someone in the boardroom, that players already mentioned on here are signing and that we are signing a no-named player IF X, y and z happens but some of us don't because we live in the real world.

16.) 29 Aug 2016 21:47:48
If poor Skinnybhoy is in his mid 60's he has my sympathy . I am 66 and no one even in my family pay any attention to what I say .
All I feel like doing is enjoy the Celtic ride now, because if we ever tumble I don't think I will be around to see Celtic in the ascendancy again.

17.) 29 Aug 2016 22:16:37
I know he talks poo mate but it's harmless fun we don't want him scared away before the window closes on Wednesday lol.

18.) 29 Aug 2016 23:24:43
I prefer a Hoops88 rumour myself.

19.) 30 Aug 2016 07:10:35
Sky sports news transfer analyst commented on mccarthy yesterday and said any deal is unlikely as everton are short on cover in his position and he's technically injured needing an op.
Also Leicester seem interested in him.

Not sure there was anything concrete from us i think any fee would start at 10m.



25 Aug 2016 16:44:08
The guy who told me that Shane Duffty was coming to CFC and Saido Berahino was going to Stoke, (he is retired, but his son is an agent who I know has dealt with some EPL transfers) I had a nice singles and double bet on this, still vald until next wed. Anyway he told me today that Celtic is still a move for Duffy, that discussions were still going yesterday, it is up to him to decide between us and Brighton, and he is moving towards us, the fee is around 3.6 million. he told me also that the James McCarthy move could be on the cards, said that he is on 35k a week, not 50 or 70 and that Bournemouth are in for him with a 8 million offer on the table, but that a CFC loan for this season with us paying all the wages would suit him better. Just passing on what I heard.


1.) 25 Aug 2016 18:01:15
Malika I hope this is a non starter. He ain't good enough and at £3.6 million a complete waste of money.

McCarthy not for me, unless either Bitton and SJ leave

With that draw, we need quality not more of what we have. Need to go a level or 2 above these types.

2.) 25 Aug 2016 18:49:54
There would be a lot better options for 3.6m than Shane "own goal" Duffy.

3.) 25 Aug 2016 18:57:23
Mccarthy would be a great signing imo mobile good passer can read game well and can put himself about.

4.) 25 Aug 2016 19:35:39
I've never watched a game and thought that Mccarthy is some player.

Less than 50 league goals in 300 apps I'm surprised we are looking at him.

{Ed007's Note - What's your point? CDM's tend to not score many goals, our club captain has scored 55 goals in 505 appearances.}

5.) 25 Aug 2016 19:59:39
I think mccarthy would be a great signing he was being linked with a arsenal not so long ago . for me he's better than any other cdm we have at our club including club captain brown. I've no seen a lot of duffy to be honest but I think we need another cd that has serious pace.

6.) 25 Aug 2016 20:23:52
McCarthy would easily be our best cm if he came in.

7.) 25 Aug 2016 20:40:53
Tick67,strange point about McCarthy mate! He's not a goal scoring midfielder mate, and his goal tally is pretty decent considering he's played at a far higher level than anything up here.

8.) 25 Aug 2016 20:44:39
Simonovic has pace Toure has pace and big Eric has pace.

9.) 25 Aug 2016 20:47:36
Is there mileage in the McCarthy link Ed? I actually thought Darron Gibson would be an option via Everton they looking to move him on.

{Ed007's Note - Something could happen if Everton can't sell him which is their preferred choice.}

10.) 25 Aug 2016 21:15:06
that was supposed to say cb lol . eric is slow in my opinion toure has pace and jozo is always injured so far so think we'd be better with more pace as cover cause boyata, ambrose are quick but both are liabilitys imo.

11.) 25 Aug 2016 21:26:19
Guess my point is should we not be looking for a goalscoring midfielder?

Sorry guys just not feeling your enthusiasm for the boy can't for the life of me mind him ever being a good player.

12.) 25 Aug 2016 21:36:57
Darren Gibson? Scraping the barrel with him

Supposed to be looking for players to improve the team not rejects that can't stay fit.

13.) 25 Aug 2016 21:46:03
Just seen law well saying we're in for 1 more, surely we need more than 1 decent player given the group we got?

14.) 25 Aug 2016 22:25:22
I like McCarthy - but he's only marginally better than SB, NB, SA, GMS when they are playing good (which hasn't been a lot lately)
SJ - something going on in his heid - he's been a shadow of himself lately.

15.) 25 Aug 2016 22:26:40
Rocker fella if you think we only
Need one more decent player considering the group we got you are seriously deluded. If we had played a quality team during the week we would be out on oor Arse. The defensive frailties where there for all to see in the first game. And the second game just hammered it home even more. Let's just hope the board seen it too and get some cash out.

16.) 25 Aug 2016 22:27:58
I don't think we need a goalscoring midfielder, we have rogic, Robert, Sinclair and Forrest. We need someone to play next to brown. I think if we could get McCarthy and Paterson from Hearts I'd be more than happy with the squad.

17.) 25 Aug 2016 22:48:44
White bits, did u no read wat a said? We'll need a hell of a lot more than one player to give us a decent account of ourselves.

18.) 25 Aug 2016 22:51:02
Whitebits, Rockerfella said we needed more than one, give the guy a break and read the messages correctly.

19.) 25 Aug 2016 22:51:11
I just don't see it lads. I would be over the moon with McCarthy and realise he's out of favour but he just signed a 5 year deal with Everton last August did he not? That puts him out the loan with option to buy bracket and considering how many EPL teams would pay north of 15 mill surely puts him out of a straight buy market as well.

20.) 26 Aug 2016 02:57:46
Can't believe anyone who has watched our centre mid would think McCarthy wouldn't be good enough lol unbelievable, he would be a class signing.

21.) 26 Aug 2016 07:23:31
Take mcarthy in a heartbeat, would rather have Shane Duffy from boyzone than the one from Blackburn.

22.) 26 Aug 2016 08:30:01
All the people slagging McCarthy when do you actually get to watch him on the match of the day highlights? The Bhoy would walk into our starting 11. i'd start him ahead of Brown or Bitton!

23.) 26 Aug 2016 08:55:36
When do you watch him?

24.) 26 Aug 2016 08:56:37
Is Patterson not a rb?

25.) 26 Aug 2016 09:45:08

Alot more than most i actually go to Goodison Park every season and have seen him make a fool of plenty so called world class EPL players. Saying that i have never seen him play for Ireland as i'm a Scotland fan.

26.) 26 Aug 2016 10:34:30
Peter Lawell has said they will try to bring one more player in. So there won't be two one three players coming in which has been branded about.

27.) 26 aug 2016 10:33:15
i actually know shane duffy very well and his family. there is no substance in shane duffy any longer coming to celtic and as for mccarthy he is definitely on 60k plus a week. just saying what i know.

28.) 26 Aug 2016 11:09:30
I hate to many loan players one is ok but not more than that, best to buy players that want to be part of the team for 3/ 4/ 5 years that is the only way forward we got money so buy.

29.) 26 Aug 2016 12:03:18
doirebhoy, that stuffs my bet, ah well, was hoping he would come as I felt he would be great for us, do you think he is going to Brighton? a few weeks ago he was gambled on from 10/ 1 into 4/ 7 to go to Swansea and some friends of mine in Derry told me that it was a dead cert, and "The whole of Derry is on it" do not know what happened to that.

30.) 26 Aug 2016 12:14:54
Well if he's making a fool of world class players then let's get him in.

I've seen him play many a times first at Hamilton where I thought he would amount to something special.
Seen him many a times at Wigan, Everton and Ireland and personally I've never seen him look any better than average but I'm happy to take your word for it man.


31.) 26 Aug 2016 12:33:26

Celtic Park will be the place where he will show his real class. Fingers crossed. (If it happens! ) . There's nothing better than seeing one of our own in the heart of the engine room. HH.

32.) 26 Aug 2016 12:48:58
Hope you're right Stan the man.
You make a good point tho he's one of us so straight away earns brownie points.


33.) 26 Aug 2016 12:59:55
I honestly think he will produce his best football for us if we can get him. Can you imagine him walking out the tunnel in the green and white v sevco. He'll tear Barton a new one! HH.

34.) 26 Aug 2016 13:58:28
Duffy just signed for Brighton so can cross him off the list.

35.) 26 Aug 2016 14:07:56
That would be worth every penny lol Barton is a duchess 😀.

36.) 26 Aug 2016 22:27:39
I have a feeling, if by any chance we got McCarthy permanently, he will become a very special player for us .



21 Aug 2016 11:20:22
BR must have told Steven Gerard that Commons is gone by end Aug, SG will come nowhere near the place if KC is here, some US blogs are now saying SG is on his way, he is not in contract extension talks, flat out said he is going home. Have not heard of any interest in KC?


1.) 21 Aug 2016 11:36:58
What's the relevance with Commons? I've been wanting Kris Commons gone for 2 years purely because he's only interested in himself and found his level years ago, - why would SG only come if he's gone though?

{Ed007's Note - Let's just say WAG trouble with a smidgen of the 'glamorous' Liverpool underworld thrown in.}

2.) 21 Aug 2016 11:39:45
Can I ask why? What's the history between SG and KC?

I know it will never happen but I would like YaYa for one season! Steamroller right over Wee Joey,

3.) 21 Aug 2016 11:46:51
********* TEXT DELETED ********

{Ed007's Note - You'd actually be surprised, nay amazed, at how easy it is. And you'll find a hell of a lot of the story has been removed from Google searches. Who said super-injunction?}

4.) 21 Aug 2016 11:49:47
Rumors bn going around for a year that Alex and him were homesick and were wanting to come home once his contract was up which is before the end of the year. Did say he missed the CL and all the rest of it. Commons is a goner mate. At best he will be a number on a sheet but he is way to slow for BR so won't feature.

5.) 21 Aug 2016 12:01:18
I thought everybody knew about commons and Stevie G ED! lol. gerrard for me is done! How many 35 year olds are we wanting at the club honestly! I wand a quality midfielder in next to brown but Gerard ain't the answer!

6.) 21 Aug 2016 12:09:02
Not that hard to find out. 😉.

{Ed007's Note - It wasn't finding out I said was easy.}

7.) 21 Aug 2016 12:14:50
Agreed DH88-smashing player in his day but past his sell by date. Different story when experience needed at centre half signing Toure for least demanding position on the park but not for a midfielder.

8.) 21 Aug 2016 12:27:33
Been watching the galaxy games recently and sg is done he can't raise a gallop yet to see him burst into a sprint.

9.) 21 Aug 2016 13:16:52
You'd be lucky to get 25 games out of the 'older' centre mids we've been linked with. Yaya is the only one I'd really want but it will never happen. For me Lucas would be the ideal signing for that position, the perfect foil for Brown. can't see it though due to wages.

10.) 21 Aug 2016 19:10:39
Didn't Liverpool just block lucas from joining a Turkish side because they want to keep him?

{Ed001's Note - he is injured.}

11.) 21 Aug 2016 13:49:27
Ah Ed i see what you did there.

Where has that Skinnybhoy gone? I thought he would have been flooding us with rumors by now, Day 2 and all quiet.


1.) 02 Jan 2017 22:59:33
I'm waiting for Hoops88 to make an appearance with his reliable sources.

2.) 02 Jan 2017 18:08:04
Maybe Ed007 could give us any info he might have on new signings. Do you still expect James McCarthy to sign Ed?

{Ed007's Note - I never said I expected McCarthy to sign.}

3.) 03 Jan 2017 09:34:01
missing the transfer mince maself lads, so im going to start one, i heard thru a reliable source ( guy that sells two fur a pound socks in paisley) that we are on the verge of signing mark wright from towie as cover for left back, although were getting him on a free it severely depletes our budget as it means we have to double the intake of fake tan and teeth whitener, were also looking at steve evans as fitness coach and iain dowie as the face of celtic.

4.) 03 Jan 2017 11:21:31
Love the term "transfer mince" lol! Been waiting for a "reliable source" who drinks with Yaya Toure's uncle's mate to tell us he's up for a medical and it's a done deal!

5.) 03 Jan 2017 00:00:53
Hoops88 was always good for info.



31 Dec 2016 08:15:01
Good Morning Bhoys, it's cloudy and threatening rain here in Marbella, but I am feeling very Sunny inside, COYBIG, let's BURST their asbestos ridden bubble today, hope they have sendros in their starting lineup, to all travelling today, please be watchful and mind your security, you never know what these heathens will do today.




18 Dec 2016 14:21:37
Any news on Tom Rogic? Hope it's not serious after all the ankle trouble he had before, we would miss him badly.


{Ed007's Note - He's due scans on his ankle but I'd assume they will need to wait on any swelling going down before they can do them.}

1.) 18 Dec 2016 23:37:27
I wonder what we'll go with on Tuesday whether it's having Griff or Christie behind Moussa or put Armstrong further forward with Bitton or Henderson beside Brown.



12 Dec 2016 11:41:46
Getting very close to silly season again, We will be linked with every man and his dog, but my two to watch are James mcclean andConnor hourihane.


1.) 12 Dec 2016 17:06:37
I don't see either as a step up Malika bud. Not what I'd be hoping for with BR in and JP gone.

2.) 12 Dec 2016 17:09:44
Dear god, thankfully those in charge are more ambitious.

3.) 12 Dec 2016 17:18:25
sakho and mccarthy, maybe too ambitious ;)

4.) 12 Dec 2016 17:51:50
There's better than Sakho for the money imo BW. It will be interesting though. It's pretty clear we've signed players BR is familiar with. KT, SS, DdV he's worked with. Dembele, Gamboa I'm sure he would have been aware of their situations. A new manager signing players he knows is a sensible strategy. Will we see the same again? Will we look slightly further afield but still players BR fancies? Will our scouts have identifued somebody he agrees with? To be honest and fair, I'm not expecting too much in during January, but if we do manage to get one, perhaps two, they need to be better than McClean and Hourihane for me.

5.) 12 Dec 2016 17:41:59
Don't rate Maclean at all, don't think he'd improve what we have just now.

6.) 12 Dec 2016 18:33:52
Aye but it'd be some craic put a right few noses out of joint.

7.) 12 Dec 2016 22:51:46
The panty wetters would need new inhalers. Seriously thou much as I admire the lad and how he stands up to the bullies I don't think he would improve the current squad as it is. But who am I to say, got the Armstrong 1 wrong big time.

8.) 13 Dec 2016 18:54:37
The most important part of the make-up a player we are seeking to buy, is a player who is genuinely keen in signing for us . Something must click with him to want us, maybe he likes our manager, maybe he likes our stadium and playing in front of 60,000 loud supporting fans on European night .
However if it is the good - looking generous girls maybe that wouldn't be the best of reasons.



08 Dec 2016 21:37:28
I keep hearing that LG has thrown a few Wobblies since the league cup final and that he might be looking to move on, i cannot believe that he would do this after the way he had knuckled down and brought such credit on himself as a person and Celtic in the last couple of seasons. Can anybody give any update?


1.) 08 Dec 2016 21:59:07
Unfortunately we have many posters who seem to take great delight in reporting problems at Celtic either real or unreal . Thank God people like Malika20 understands how these people smear players and club.

2.) 08 Dec 2016 23:01:49
I think its a case of loose tongues and empty vessels making most noise.

{Ed007's Note - 2+2 = 1 million.}

3.) 09 Dec 2016 09:47:28
It's obviously disappointing going from almost winning the spl single-handed to warming the bench and I believe he must be very frustrated, but his chance will come soon and where else would he experience anything close to what he has achieved and enjoyed at Celtic?

4.) 09 Dec 2016 10:09:28
he should be frustrated and rightly so, but can't see him spitting the dummy, will imagine he will get a few more starts in the coming weeks, its up to him to take them.

5.) 09 Dec 2016 10:16:32
Think about this logically, would Brendan play Griffiths if he was throwing his toys out the pram?

Now think back to Tuesday night, Griffiths started on the bench and came on second half and got a decent amount of game time.

This suggests to me that there is no substance to these stories.

Personally, I reckon Griffiths will be frustrated and annoyed but I am sure he is being professional about it, putting the effort into training to try and impress the manager and so he is ready when his chance comes.

We have a lot of games to play and I am sure Dembele will go off the boil from time to time, so Griffiths will get his chance. His only job is to be ready when it comes and make the most of it.

6.) 09 Dec 2016 17:58:30
i think PR in the premier league would be a luxury

i think he would want to stay at celtic

i believe that Man City would accept a reasonable fee

wierdly, i think that the queue for roberts won't be that long which gives CFC a good chance of nabbing him

however, with tin hat on, i wouldn't pay much more than £3m for him based on our needs and where we want to go

he still has a long long way to go…maturity wise and decision making wise he needs to develop more and more

i do not thonk we should blow the kitty on him …indeed i don think we should blow the kitty on any player that currently isn't even guaranteed a starting X1 slot…that simply doesn't make any sense.

7.) 10 Dec 2016 10:11:03
or maybe people have been told this by people who are on the coaching staff, people are bored with old bhoy sweetie wifing at everyones posts.

Kev83 of course not, but what I am saying is that BR would have targets that he would have sounded out the connections before CL qualification, and based on income generated from that, you could reasonably expect that deals would be done.

Whiss 81, I do not take that you are having a go, I happen to agree with you, KC has been a good servant to us, but he is getting over the hill for what we want, I for one would not bring Gerard here, just saying that I thing BR wants him in and that he will not come if KC is here, given their past.

Sparky, you are 100% correct, well said, on the same note If you saw my previous post re Steven Gerard, I think BR has told him that KC will be out before he arrives, this only makes me more convinced that SG is comming in Jan and KC will be out the door on loan to Hibs on Jan 1st.

I think you may be right,15 mins to go in england, Everton must be really pissed about sissoko, maybe we left an offer on the table and if the window closes there, then we might be in.
