Surly Not! Dembele to Chelsea? I'm hearing 35mil and Michy Batshuayi on loan for 6months? I would be sick to see this guy leave after only 6 months!


1.) 30 Jan 2017 17:33:45
40m they're now saying.


2.) 30 Jan 2017 17:28:32
Can we not just let them have Gordon if they promise to leave Moussa alone?


3.) 30 Jan 2017 18:07:56
If true, and followed up, its going to be massive test of resolve for player and club. Im not sure anyone expects, though im sure we hope, moussa is a lifer its just a matter of timing and best value. mind ed being surprised we secured a player of such promise and he doesn't appear to have not enhanced on it. 40m could be a means to provide something special so going by recent success we will expect 10 moussa's to be sourced with maybe a cheeky gordon n pocket the change for the future if the club.

The rumour doing the rounds this morning here in sunny Dundee is that Gary Mackay-Steven will make a loan move to DUFC by the midnight deadline. Shame as I really liked him as player and felt he would of did well under Rodgers. Always felt Ronny Delia restricted him as a player as when at DUFC his skills were top class. As I can recall that seemed to disappear after joining Celtic.


1.) 31 Aug 2016 11:29:09
He turned it down yesterday said he wanted to stay and fight for his place.


2.) 31 Aug 2016 17:08:37
His problem at Celtic was the same at united, not consistent enough n doesn't always deliver in the bigger games. I like him as a player, n Rd gave him game time and he had some really good games n scored here n there but couldn't maintain the form. I do believe he is a confidence player n maybe the step up to Celtic surprised him. He has skill, pace n can score a goal, if he can do it on a more regular place we have a player n I'd be glad 4 him to get game time n come back with games under his belt n a bit more belief or confidence that he can play at that higher level, I don't mean in the league I mean from united to Celtic, that's a bit step up n there have been many who couldn't make, including from our own youth.
Like a few others, Henderson, nesbit etc I'd like to see them loaned out if they aren't going to get say at least 10 starts n however many appearances from the bench, you can't beat playing week in and week out and I would like to see us for now and in the future having a nucleus of Scottish players, it's something Rd liked to do and I think if brendan can get the right players in, or just in form it would be great to see us build on thst Scottish element.
It gives the youth something to aim for and for too long Celtic haven't brought through our own youth n even bought n played enough young Scottish players.
We produced Kieran Tierney and there are others there who are and will be good enough.
Hail hail.

Leo Fasan rumoured to be off to Motherwell? If that's the case surly a keeper due in by today?


1.) 07 Aug 2016 13:39:34
Loan or permanent deal?


2.) 07 Aug 2016 15:01:16
He's on the bench today mate.


3.) 07 Aug 2016 15:03:59
He is on the bench today but if we get another GK in the next few days he is going out on loan.


4.) 07 Aug 2016 16:23:53
I'd be really happy with that! Gordon is getting on so Fasan could be back up for new GK in a years time and getting him some prop 1st team playing time can only help.


5.) 07 Aug 2016 17:22:39
Lot a spurs fans saying they'll happily drop vorm off in glasgow lol.


6.) 07 Aug 2016 20:59:05
Hes had a couple of clangers for Spurs but is in and out team never given a run of games which is essential for any GK! Was great for Swansea, reckon he'd be great for us and current form could see us getting him cut price.


7.) 07 Aug 2016 14:07:01
I heard it was a season long loan, didn't know the team involved.


 

 

26 May 2016 13:14:55
Linked with Danny Graham this morning? Who ever has made that rumour up must of been on the drink major last night! I'd rather go with our youth forwards rather than buy another absolute diddy!

Michael Laudrup's odds have halved in 15mins! Bit of a loose cannon as a manager imo!


1.) 20 Apr 2016 12:35:56
Wouldn't want him after some of the stuff ED was telling us re laudrup's time at Swansea.

{Ed007's Note - Laudrup is just another name that supporters (not just CFC) see as some kind of footballing messiah simply because of his name, they know nothing about these managers or their record/methods. We've got a better manager leaving us than Laudrup so why is he even mentioned, it's simply his name people see and think he must be good.
I wonder how many of the people championing Marcelo Bielsa know that he plays a 4-2-3-1? And we now know that's not good enough for the CFC support, it's 4-4-2 or the sack - and don't dare mention NL's favoured 4-5-1.
Anyway, there were a lot of major problems behind the scenes at Swansea and most of them stemmed from Laudrup himself and some of his ideas and methods, he left them in a terrible mess. Laudrup was sacked after taking an unauthorised personal trip to France and giving players two days off after losing to West Ham, a game that the board felt was very important in the relegation battle. There was stories of players boozing etc on trips, he introduced a bizarre ruling that a maximum of 3 Spanish players could sit together at any table in the club canteen when they had lunch and on a training camp to Dubai the only rule set out to the players was the time they had to be on the bus to go to a 2 hour training session, the rest of the time they could do what they wanted, you can imagine what a crowd of wealthy footballers would get up to.
And that's only some of it, oh and I almost forgot - he refuses to take training if it's raining.}


2.) 20 Apr 2016 13:48:35
What about Rodgers Ed I'm sure you said there was alsorts going on behind the scenes at Liverpool?

{Ed001's Note - he was awful, you really do not want him. He was far too busy dicking around with his bit on the side, then on his makeover, to actually do his job. He never once watched the youth teams, so no chance of any youngsters breaking through. Decent coach, but he got too big for his boots and thought he was some kind of football genius. He also has no idea how to target players to suit the way he wants to play so ends up with a disjointed team and squad. Oh and his obsession with passing for the sake of it is truly ludicrous.}


3.) 20 Apr 2016 14:22:51
Well thankfully he's still 66/ 1, so I wouldn't worry about it too much. I don't think anyone will know their thinking at the moment. The first few names on the board at the bookies are the usual suspects, Even Lennon is 3/ 1 and also thankfully I don't think there's even a tiny chance he'll get offered it. He also doesn't deserve it - he wanted to leave, supposedly because the board weren't backing him, although I was actually told the board where happy to go in a different direction anyway, and were quite happy. Anyway it's not went well in England and now he's saying 5 mins after hearing at Hartsons golf day he wants the job again. We've given the job to people in my opinion who have never earned it. Macari, Brady, Barnes, Lennon, Mowbray and now Ronny for me never merited even being spoken about for the job. Throw in Keane and Coyle, it's a brass neck. O'Neill and Strachan at least had pedigree and/ or experience. The amount of money and time we have wasted over the years fannying about looking for cheap and easy options is a disgrace. The damage that's been done to the club as well. How is it humanly possible to be so backward that these are the only names you can come up with. Some of the other names people are wanting as well, then when they fail they'll be wanting them sacked. My top 3 choices would be Prandelli, Rudi Garcia and Lucien Favre. I'd also be delighted with Yakin or Weinzeirl. That's the sort of standard we need, 1 of them might be interested. I'd pay whatever it took for the right guy then budget everything from there!

{Ed007's Note - That's a top post, Delphic.}


4.) 20 Apr 2016 14:45:55
If you're not being sarcastic then thank you sir!

{Ed007's Note - I was being genuine buddy.}


5.) 20 Apr 2016 15:18:57
Good post Delphic. Don't necessarily agree with your three - but they're good forward thinking choices that I'd be happy with.

On the Rodgers chat, one thing that always bugs/ bugged me was the chat about how he almost did x y and z with Liverpool. His (limited) success at Liverpool was down to one man, and it wasn't him. He lucked out by having One of the best strikers in the world, in form, and as soon as he didn't, he was found out big time. You need only look to how they are doing now under Klopp to see how bad he had them.


6.) 20 Apr 2016 18:40:06
I was thinking the exact same thing half way through and then i seen the other comments. Top class.


7.) 20 Apr 2016 18:35:12
I never knew any of the stories about Rodgers, I'm after a manger who can adapt a formation to suit a squad and the opposition.
I feel good players should be able to do this.
I don't know much about available managers but I would prefer someone with a strong mentality who will have a much greater say in the ins and outs.
Ed do you have any preference/ ideas?


8.) 20 Apr 2016 20:18:53
Nice post, I'm terrified Owen Coyle or Malkie gets the job.

Lennon can't be a serious contender, many managers make it a 2nd time around.

Like all the names mentioned and even the St Etienne coach would do.

Are we suppost to be feeling bad about our current financial power? The Scottish tabloids moaning about Celtic popping the champagne whilst the rest of Scottish football suffers? Honestly only in Scottish Football would you get bad press for being in the green! HH.


1.) 08 Feb 2017 10:05:59
Wasn't a problem when moonbeams murry was talking about floating pitches and serving lamb though eh?


 

 

30 Jan 2017 10:13:36
If Gordon wants to leave then leave! But Celtic must have GK in as the keepers left after Gordon are not Celtic class. Why not swap Asmir Begovic with Craig Gordon? If Begovic wants first team football and Gordon wants Chelsea move then let's swap! If that's not possible due to wages etc I personally would sign Scott Bain from Dundee. Living in Dundee and having Dundee supporting mates he gets rave reviews here. He is the best keeper Dundee have had since Jullien Speroni and he was a top GK. It's a hard position to be in 48 hours away from the Transfer Deadline.


1.) 30 Jan 2017 10:39:18
It's not as if they want rid of Begovic, they're willing to sell because the player wants frst team football and Bournemouth are willing to shell out about £10M. If he really wants to go I'd like to see him and the club come to an agreement where he'll stay until the end of the season and leave for free in the summer instead of us taking the year's option. Chelsea probably wouldn't want to wait about for that though.


2.) 30 Jan 2017 11:36:47
It's great business for celtic to take 4million our season is all but over already league in bag job done, qualified for ECL and made plenty job done, now to get ready for ECL qualifiers again? The cup we have home tie in last 16 and if we progress and get decent home tie in last 8 means we don't need to leave Glasgow to win cup, we have to trust our other goalkeepers or why are they there?

{Ed007's Note - I wouldn't settle for anything less than £6 million for Gordon, why should Chelsea get an international 'keeper with EL/CL experience who is an important part of our treble chasing team for buttons and let's be honest, £6m to Chelsea is pea-nuts, especially considering they want £10/12m for Begovic.}


3.) 30 Jan 2017 13:32:25
Great point ed sick of the English thinking they can plunder celtic offering peanuts when similar calibre player or worse can leave clubs like Hull for double the money

{Ed007's Note - Cheers mate.}


4.) 30 Jan 2017 13:46:12
Ed-spot on-their is absolutely no reason we need to act like a charity shop for the feckn EPL. The time to draw the line is now and set a benchmark for Dembelle etc. when the time comes. Give them feck all for feck all.

{Ed007's Note - As you know I'm no great lover of Gordon and if it was a mid-table EPL team bidding £3 million in July I'd snap their hand off, but this is mega-bucks Chelsea trying to buy an important part of our team as things stand with 2 days to find a replacement. I want this Treble ssssoooo badly and out of all the 'keepers we have Gordon is our best bet at attaining it.
Someone suggested Tim Krull who is scunnered at Ajax and Newcastle don't want him back, he's only 28 and I'm sure he's out of contract in the summer too, would you take him?}


5.) 30 Jan 2017 12:10:28
Definitely agree Ed, Chelsea are loaded. Romans probably got £4 million sitting next to his bed as loose change. If they're desperate to get Gordon pay at least 6/ 7 million or jog on

{Ed007's Note - It's now starting to look like Chelsea are getting the message that he's not for sale.}


6.) 30 Jan 2017 15:19:31
Where's this Krul talk coming from Ed? Would be a great bit of business.

{Ed007's Note - It was just someone mentioned him on here as a possible replacement for Gordon, JT and it could make perfect sense imo although I'm not sure what level he's currently at regarding shaprness but at only 28 I'm positive he could get back up to speed in no time working under Rodgers' regime.}


7.) 30 Jan 2017 15:29:32
Would seem like the perfect solution whoever suggested it. We take a 6 month loan to buy, bank the money for Gordon (they still have to add a few million on yet though) and sharpness aside, we have ourselves a better 'keeper.

{Ed007's Note - I'm raging I never thought of him myself lol}


8.) 30 Jan 2017 16:40:56
I'm surprised Chelsea haven't. I read Rafa saying somebody has enquired but it was the wrong club. That could be Chelsea (not guaranteeing games) .


9.) 30 Jan 2017 16:23:44
Leave for free?! he's no Larsson


 

 

30 Jan 2017 08:01:02
Is David Moyes stupid? Or just ignorant? Sell a mediocre lb in Patrick Van Aanholt for 14mill? Bid 10 for Kieran Tierney? Idiot!


1.) 30 Jan 2017 09:37:15
I think he's showing his disdain for the club and league again. Two things though, why would anyone want to go to Sunderland at the minute especially a top player coming through that much bigger clubs are looking at. Second as you intimated before, 10 million would only buy his right foot. When van arnholt and others like Luke shaw go for between 15 and 20 why would we entertain a bid like that .


2.) 30 Jan 2017 09:43:32
I think they're signing Oviedo.


3.) 30 Jan 2017 11:02:31
Best player at Celtic best lb in Britain at the moment bit of a cheek to be linked at 10m bid show some respect for the lad!
Average players from premiership going for 10-18m and players from Europe going 25m+


 

 

27 Jan 2017 07:31:49
With news that The player we are after Henry Onyekuru went AWOL last night and refused to even take his place on the bench for his club, is this a guy we want at Celtic? He may be talented but he looks like he has the personality of a player like Saido Berahino? What if Celtic sign him and does well and a offer comes in for big bucks? Is he going to throw the dummy out the pram again to get his move? Can't stand players like that. There are certain ways to conduct yourself if wanting a transfer but refusing to play for your club isn't one of them imo. HH.


1.) 27 Jan 2017 09:42:05
When you read his comments he says that the club are trying to force him to change agents and move to CSKA so if that's true then you can understand his position. He's not in a huff because they won't sell him it's because they're trying to sacrifice his career to make themselves more money.


2.) 27 Jan 2017 10:15:48
I'm on the fence. It's the wrong way to go about it, and he might well do it to us should he sign. Kev makes a good point though.


3.) 27 Jan 2017 10:50:30
I think the young mans in a tight position and don't blame him for his actions tbh. Can you imagine being 19, foreign in Russia and having someone who "owns" you trying to dictate your future life choices like you have no choice. If the his quotes on line are accurate he has obviously done it not to market himself but so there is media awareness of the situation and then maybe his "owners" will back off

{Ed007's Note - Celtic have been told by two different parties to stay well clear of Onyekuru because of his attitude and disruptive influence on the squad. Last night just reaffirmed exactly that.}


4.) 27 Jan 2017 11:46:42
so we will buy him then lol


5.) 27 Jan 2017 11:22:07
Fenerbahce seems to be the shout on social media anyway Ed, and the Bojan to celtic link won't go away, any info on that or anything else?

{Ed007's Note - AS I've said before I can't see us paying the transfer fee, wages and other costs involved with signing Bojan. Stoke are still asking for £12m and even if they drop that a couple of mill I still can't see it.}


6.) 27 Jan 2017 12:03:43
If this isn't an isolated incident then It's a concern. We can't be having 19 year old prima donnas. IF he could have his head set, different story, but that is an IF.

{Ed007's Note - I just can't see Onyekuru coming in and being happy to be 3rd choice striker behind Dembele and Griffiths - unless Griffiths is for the off which has just occurred to me, hhhmmm?? We know we're trying to unload Ciftci but do you think Onyekuru will be happy to take his place in the squad or play most of his football for the development squad?}


7.) 27 Jan 2017 12:34:23
Henrik larsson took Feyenoord to court to force a move to Celtic if dembele did that to Celtic fans would be going off there heads saying get him out and if he did go to say spurs their fans wouldn't give a hoot like us when henrik gave us 7 wonderful years hh


8.) 27 Jan 2017 12:31:19
Do you think the reasoning behind his attitude is the fact that he's practically a slave to the club? They're going against what he wants as a player. Which in my eyes is un fair. Maybe he could be an option for RW Ed? Even though I can't see him signing now.

{Ed007's Note - Behave yourself, he is not a slave to the club he's contracted to - until 2020 - or are they not allowed a say in it? Maybe the Russians are offering more money that's why they want him to go there - doesn't Peter Lawwell do the same, was VvD a slave for the last year he was here after Celtic refused to sell him even though he wanted to leave?}


9.) 27 Jan 2017 12:46:06
Can't imagine he would be happy Ed, no. He's more of a wing forward though. I envisaged him shifting over to the right, which again isn't ideal, but I think he'd do a turn for us and was excited. Taking your insight into consideration though, not so sure

{Ed007's Note - He's been playing as a striker for KAS Eupen.}


10.) 27 Jan 2017 13:11:55
He's typically been playing on the left of a three man attack Ed. But that's a finer detail.


11.) 27 Jan 2017 14:06:41
I'd have thought if anybody in the forward line is getting replaced it would 100% be Forrest on the right wing as well JimTim.


12.) 27 Jan 2017 14:53:28
A hope Griffiths isn't for the off. He just needs to take his chance again when it comes, a hope he starts against the wee huns he'll be up for that one. A wee brace would put him back in the managers mind and give him a decision to make again, never seen the game the other night but a heard dembele was a bit off the boil.


13.) 27 Jan 2017 18:05:22
He's my priority kev.

I agree steph, Griffiths to start for me too.


14.) 27 Jan 2017 20:27:53
The wee man is a goal machine in the spl but my gut is telling me br doesn't want him.


 

 

26 Jan 2017 12:29:52
With Moussa Dembele touted for a Massive money move away in the summer I would love Celtic to move for Daniel Sturridge. Clearly not liked by the "Messiah Klopp" Rodgers will again get the best out of him. He has been well out of form but it's quite clear Him and Klopp don't like each other. A world class forward on his day and a player I feel Rodgers could get the best out of again.


1.) 26 Jan 2017 12:37:48
Wages would be a massive issue. And although I don't know the guy personally - he seems incredibly full of himself and wouldn't dream of coming to scotland.

The boy sees himself as quite he player


2.) 26 Jan 2017 12:40:03
Spends more time in the treatment room that the physio does.


3.) 26 Jan 2017 12:47:02
wages would scupper it mate, even if we did have a bid accepted, which would be 20+ . If we spent that money on a player id give sturridge a wide berth tbh, fantastic player but spends more time on sidelines thru injury than anything else.


4.) 26 Jan 2017 12:47:05
Michael, there is no chance whatsoever of Celtic getting Sturridge, Liverpool will want 20m+ for him easy and the boy thinks he's a superstar so I doubt he will come if it was up to him and as everyone knows he's the most injury prone player in the premier league


5.) 26 Jan 2017 13:32:37
Daniel Sturridge is done, guy has been an embarrassment to Liverpool this year, when he plays Liverpool are poor even Carragher said it's like playing with 10 men

Suarez made him look better than he was and it's now showing.

He'll end up at Hull or some mediocre club at that level


6.) 26 Jan 2017 13:34:09
A think we need a bit of a reality check here, we're getting a bit carried away. Any player we get from England will either be a young boy like dembele or someone like sinclair that has something to prove. A don't think sturridge falls into either.

{Ed007's Note - Painter and decorator booked, Steph - the wife's delighted it's getting done and I'm delighted with the price. Thanks again mate, HH.}

12 million is the least we should be expecting! I said earlier last week that we should be expecting wanyama money other than the nonsense 8 million that was getting put about!

EPL? And? Anyone who knows anything about football know that the EPL overrated, The Bundesliga And La Liga are far more superior than that boring rank rotten EPL. Most people get over excited watching that league all because it is dressed up well from the TV. If John Stones is worth 30 million and VVD is worth 8 or 9 million then football really is dead.

If that's the case why is John Stones valued at North of 30mil and has never even sniffed champions league football? It's time Celtic started getting the fee there players deserve other than a derogatory 8 million bid from a mid table over rated English league team.

You don't equal a record set by the Lisbon Lions if you don't have a decent GK in goal. Considering we got Gordon for free he has been very good for Celtic. If it is true that Chelsea are preparing a bid then I hope Celtic have a GK lined up as it's a very hard position to fill.

Just had to turn down the volume as had no choice as didn't want to listen to that trash! If children are forced to listen to that garbage then they will no doubt grow up to sing that garbage also. Sorry for wanting my kid to have some form of understanding that it is wrong to sing "songs" like that!, I don't want sympathy clown, I want to go to or watch a football game without tramps singing trash about something that has nothing to do with FOOTBALL!

{Ed007's Note - Right, you didn't want to listen to it, could you not just say that without bringing kids into it, how many songs did it take before you turned the sound down?
And here's a thing, I'm dying to know how you could possibly explain what the wrong songs were if you had the volume turned down - how could you know what was being sung? Or were you just sitting telling your kid 'see that song they tramps are singing that you can't hear, don't ever let me catch you singing that'?
I think we know who the clown is here so calm down, Coco.}

So "RabMac". You think it's acceptable for young children to listen to "**** The Queen" etc? If the fact you think that's acceptable then I actually feel sorry for your children, well if you actually have any 👍.

{Ed007's Note - Did you turn the TV off or send your 6 year old out the room or did you sit and draw his attention to the songs by moaning about it?
I said myself that the 90 minute rebs sesh was a bit much but why the hell is everything brought down to the 'Think about the children' to try and get some sympathy for whatever someone wants to moan about.}
