Heard 2 rumours tonight that actually sounded like they'd be good signings. Sviatchenko and Falk, that means they are probably complete nonsense.


1.) 18 Jan 2016 00:28:09
Hi ED do you know anything about this Falk guy and what are the chances of him signing? And as the days pass the Fletcher story just won't go away have you heard anything on that? I heard that wages are an issue but you never know.

{Ed007's Note - Odense winger Rasmus Falk could be another possible summer signing on a Bosman, his contract is up and representatives of CFC have held talks with the player's agent. I would be surprised to see a deal done for him moving this window. Just like in every other window I can't see there being anything in the Fletcher link, hasn't the rumour this window just stemmed from some $hite written in the DR?}

2.) 18 Jan 2016 08:03:42
Aye that's where I heard it on the DR live blog they are doing. It was unconfirmed reports and they did mention possible Celtic wanting to be kept upto date with the The situation wae the striker fae St Johnstone but the was speculation.

Wonderful today! Once again mikael (I am always injured) lustig ran 90 yards to set up dembele for his 3rd. Anyone seen him with the beachball on his head?




31 Aug 2016 21:52:26
I think if we hadn't signed anyone this window until today, and then on deadline day we signed dembele, Sinclair, toure and de vries the fans would've been ecstatic. so why do so many people seem so upset. The whole deadline day farce is just so EPL idiots spend 32 million on folk like moussa sissoko.


1.) 31 Aug 2016 22:48:49
I agree completely u actually saved me from making an identical status! We have improved our squad drastically! Apart from effe still being here it's been a good window lol Rodgers will need time to make more changes I even believe bitton will become a much better player under Rodgers but I know most will disagree.

2.) 31 Aug 2016 23:10:07
Totally agree NT87.



26 Aug 2016 08:14:52
Does anyone have faith in lustig at right back, everyone saying we need a new RB, I agree but think it could be an understudy to lustig. He played 40 odd games last year and I'd say he's our most reliable defender. also as difficult as it looks for him to move he always gets forward. I love the big man!


1.) 26 Aug 2016 08:30:10
if he could stay fit NT i'd be happy, seem like a big IF tho.

2.) 26 Aug 2016 08:35:49
I have confidence in him which is why I'd like Paterson in for back up. It's Janko who is the problem.

3.) 26 Aug 2016 09:01:50
Paterson at Hearts is a great prospect. HH.

4.) 26 Aug 2016 09:18:19
I have total faith in him. Model pro if you ask me. However, he is fragile and we need another. Janko may not be the answer and after Tuesday i have my doubts.

5.) 26 Aug 2016 09:39:17
I also love Lustig, I prefer him at centre half though. I believe Janko will get the same treatment as Efe has and young Ralston will get his chance to show what he can do. I think we will bring in a RB and a CM. Back four of Ralston, Toure, Tierney. Feck can't spell the fourth lol. Ain't I bad. that's my back four for sat. Giving lustig a rest.

6.) 26 Aug 2016 13:35:30
I'm inclined to agree with Hoopric with regards to young Ralston. Tend to think he'll protect Lustig as much as he can around the CL and rest him for a number of SPL games. He's a better option defensively than Janko.



28 Jun 2016 17:47:45
Ed, have you seen this new black and gold away kit. Don't know how to put a picture up.



{Ed007's Note - That one?}

1.) 28 Jun 2016 18:09:02
Very nice indeed.

2.) 28 Jun 2016 18:16:21
If that's the new kit then Footy Headlines have been leaked a fake and that's a very rare occurrence.

3.) 28 Jun 2016 18:46:07
That's the one mate, thanks, looks to be real, but I've seen a few variations.

{Ed007's Note - There's a few different one stoating about.}

4.) 28 Jun 2016 23:03:57
It's actually up there now so I retract my previous statement.



28 May 2016 08:02:55
Oops, sent that by mistake ed!

Will Rodgers want someone who works more with the midfield to build the play. If he goes with Roberts as one of a 3 he may also push Griffiths left and play a proper centre forward to bring other players into play.

I'm just thinking if the wee man might need to change how he plays a bit. Glad we can speculate on things while actually looking forward to a season!


1.) 28 May 2016 09:57:32
If griffiths was too be moved out wide (which is insane btw considering he just scored 40 goals) then he must play on the right cutting in, as he is way more of a threat than Roberts who I think has a lot to learn.

2.) 28 May 2016 10:12:42
I agree about him getting moved wide not being great, just a thought though as he very rarely brings anyone else into the game, Rodgers might not be a fan of that. Griffiths also has a lot to learn.

3.) 28 May 2016 10:37:57
How many goals would a proper forward score? as opposed to the griffiths who isn't playing right.?

4.) 28 May 2016 12:44:46
Well he's scored 40 goals in the SPL. How many did Kris Boyd score. Griffiths hasn't proved it in Europe. He's surprised me because he's better than I thought he was, and some of the headers he's scored this year have been incredible, he's still far from the complete striker though. We've got absolutely no options up front, so we don't know how he would play on the right of a front 3, which Brendan Rodgers likes. They can also switch, he doesn't have to stay on the right the whole game. I think we need 2 strikers, probably before we sign anyone else! This is the worst bunch of forwards in my time watching Celtic.

5.) 28 May 2016 12:59:10
A proper centre forward wouldn't score as many deep river boy as he'd be setting up a poacher type like Griffiths and Griffiths wouldn't have to do as much running and chasing a back four. At any point did I say Griffiths wouldn't be playing? With a different type of striker I think other players would score more. This is a topic for discussion, you don't need to agree as I'm just putting a point out. This is a banter page.

6.) 28 May 2016 13:24:24
I never said you dint want to play him i just don't see your point at all nt . moving a 40 goal striker out wide to bring in a proper striker? Isn't 52 in 72 the work of a proper striker? by all means bring in someone to help but why move as you say a poacher out wide? To me it doesn't make sense. look at the duds we've had in recent years who couldn't kick Derek johnstone arse . we finally have someone hitting goals regular and improving every season in all departments of his game. and you want to move him.

7.) 28 May 2016 13:49:09
I again speculated that he might move out wide, and just wanted others views. I'm not the manager so I can't change anyone's position. I wouldn't say Griffiths is a proper centre forward (I didn't say he wasn't a striker) . In my view a proper centre forward is a hartson/ sutton/ pelle. Griffiths does a lot of running the channels and I think I player like this holding the ball up would benefit him.

My initial was IF Rodgers was to go with a 3 as he did at Liverpool would Griffiths work as the middle of a 3; I don't think he'd play the role as well as someone else could.

8.) 28 May 2016 17:03:07
Maybe Griffiths in goals a direct swap with Gordon, both have experience of, in Griffiths case getting ball past goalie, so he should know what to do as a goalie against a striker and similarly Gordon would know what he didn't like strikers doing and would score a whole bag of goals .

Makes as much sense as taking Griffiths out of striker role and playing as a winger.

9.) 28 May 2016 17:08:10
If he goes with a top three then the strikers will be swapping and moving all the time like they done a lot at liverpool

10.) 29 May 2016 13:49:39
What a load of total nonsense from some posters on here. Griffiths spends a lot of his time in the wide areas at the moment and I think would benefit from someone holding the ball up and bringing other players into play. I would certainly be interested to try it out and means we would have a lot of fire power upfront if it was successful. Comparing it to swap for CG just makes you look daft IMO.

If he does leave at least he'll get to say his laat goodbye for the 3rd time

I think if he's ready to go now then its what is needed. Means you can rotate brown, Armstrong, rogic and him. Also means brown and Armstrong might not need to cover as much ground if he's a proper sitting midfielder.

He's a football manager legend. Sign him up.

You can't say nobody would buy Forrest if he has a good season, and for that reason it's better he signs. I don't see the issue with him not accepting the first offer, it's not like he didn't have a full year of the previous one still to run.

I don't know what all the fuss about Forrest getting a new contract is. He's obviously a player the manager likes, and he's been playing well since Rodgers came. He's young so now that he's under contract he can't walk away for nothing, so even if he doesn't play well we can get 1 million for him next season if need be. Seems a no brainer.


{Ed007's Note - Why would anyone pay £1 million for Forrest when nobody wanted him for nothing? James Forrest will see this 3 year deal out, get his testimonial and walk away for nothing IF he can find another club. He's been pulling the same strokes every time he's been due a new deal, remember his agent told the press Spurs were willing to pay £9 million for him so the Celtic fans thought he must be good if Spurs want him.}

Why does anyone feel the need to congratulate fans on observing a minutes silence? If it's for a genuine reason like today it should be taken for granted and observed.

I was at game last night as the school I work at was there. Was about 3000 different school kids on trips. How can a supposed big club give away so many tickets. At celtic park
Someone would give their right leg for a CL ticket. Also noticed it said 'thank you sheikh mansour' on their stadium. Its like saying 'we are cheats'.

I had a nightmare in Liverpool mate. Got a taxi to a celtic supporters club. Didn't have the game on although it said they showed all games. Was also grotty. Is look for a sports bar with plenty tv's and hope its on one of them!

Yayo, the reason he is in the team ahead of Roberts is that he tracks back much more than him. He's keeping a supposed 12 million pound player out the team. How about giving a bit of credit. I'm sure lustig is delighted Forrest is working back as well as forward.

I'm not sure Griffiths is next in line as penalty taker anyhow. So maybe was just getting the ball. I definitely prefer sinclair to hit our penalties.
