Great start to Compper he's out for a month calf strain.

Rich T

What laugh I need to stop checking out news on Celtic football insider are claiming we are interested in CH Mawson from Swansea.

Rich T

1.) 08 Jan 2018 15:06:26
West Ham are set to offer a deal worth £25 million so doubt it.



03 Jan 2018 12:56:50
Any truth in Celtic signing young Australian ED?

Rich T

{Ed007's Note - Leo Mazis that was over on trial? Yeah that's true.}

1.) 03 Jan 2018 13:12:07
Reports suggest this month 3 year deal been offered at 17 that's a big commitment coming for so far away at a young age must be given a chance at first team level surely?

{Ed007's Note - I doubt we'll see much of him in the first-team for a while.}



31 Dec 2017 09:57:48
Morning EDs the Daily Mail are surely reporting wrong stories with reports today saying we have put a bid in for Dundees Jack Hendrey.

Rich T

{Ed007's Note - Yes it's wrong, we haven't put a bid in yet.}

1.) 31 Dec 2017 12:10:07
Aye just seen Dundee have replied by saying no bid has came in and that the figure would need to be higher. Hope we are not going to intertain a bid we must be looking for someone with more quality surely ED?

{Ed007's Note - We will be bidding for Hendry in the coming days/weeks and if he's signed he will be loaned back to Dundee until the summer.}

2.) 31 Dec 2017 12:38:16
Ed this is a development yeah. And future potential I guess. Can you see a another established/ experienced cb coming in also alongside compper.

{Ed007's Note - I wouldn't be surprised to see Caulker signed in January. The defence will be overhauled over the next 2 windows and the plans are that Sviatchenko and possibly Simunovic will be sold next month. Boyata will leave in the summer along with Simunovic if he doesn't leave in January.}

3.) 31 Dec 2017 13:19:28
Why that ED no point in buying for looking ahead we need the talent in now not later do u see anyone come in this window that will be first team ready?

{Ed007's Note - I think that'll depend on what's happening with Simunovic next month. Gamboa will more than likely be moved on in January as well.}

4.) 31 Dec 2017 14:16:06
Cheers EDs happy new year when it comes.

{Ed007's Note - And to you buddy.}

5.) 01 Jan 2018 15:44:54
I'm glad the CB issue is being sorted as it has been our weakness along with GK. Caulker, Compper, Ajer, Would still leave us short if Erik, Jozo and Boyata leave. I read big Eck was slating Ajer saying he's slow and doesn't look like he will be a develop into a top class defender! Any news on the GK issue ED? Remember you saying both are getting on a bit and maybe the possibility of Bain as a stop gap but Hibs have just signed him for the rest of the season?

6.) 01 Jan 2018 19:30:09
People keep saying the goalkeeper issue. Well talk of issue is nonsense, yes kicking the ball is not great but he is a really good keeper. We've had 4 clean sheets since Hearts scored 4 whilst the team hasn't been in great form. Gordon stopped us from losing against Rangers. The biggest issue is the style of football. Defenders continuously go back they way when other teams put them in pressure. They often don't look for the ball in return or marked out and there is no height in the team so highballs usually come straight back. We get away with it by most smaller teams but good teams read our play to easy.

7.) 03 Jan 2018 19:57:42
On the premise that all goalkeepers are bombscafes I agree with the above. Even the best in the world get spotlighted when they screw up. I guess the gk issue has to be the whole defence issue really. but the general consensus in here us that we need a better all round goalie to make real progress.

Morning EDs what's going to be the fictious story of the day from the papers the day? Armstrong going?

Rich T

{Ed007's Note - LG & Kate Middleton.....

1.) 08 Jan 2018 11:38:23
You mean LG and Kate is not true, gutted.

{Ed007's Note - As if LG would go near THAT! God knows where she's been.... She's meant to be 35 but looks about 50 close up.}

2.) 08 Jan 2018 11:42:06
Dembele in part exchange deal to Sevco. According to “reports” They have offered Kenny Miller plus Dave Kings Nectar points for next 80 years.

3.) 08 Jan 2018 13:08:03
Av heard oor eds had a very lucrative offer to switch to the sevco banter page but for less money obviously.

{Ed007's Note -


4.) 08 Jan 2018 13:15:47
Is the team away for 1or 2 weeks ED and is it true PR traveled with them?

{Ed007's Note - I think it's just the week and yes Roberts travelled.}

5.) 08 Jan 2018 14:52:19
Ive heard craig gordons getting a 3 yr deal with rug doctor for beard maintenance ;)

6.) 08 Jan 2018 19:59:50
Belter ed fight the temptation.

{Ed007's Note - :-D



04 Jan 2018 21:41:21
Hi ED good that we are going to confirm the signing of Morgan tomorrow. can you see anymore in to join the team in Dubai or near the end as usual?

Rich T

{Ed007's Note - I really can't put a time scale on things, Rich.}

1.) 04 Jan 2018 23:53:32
It would be handy for any new bhoy to help bond wae the team.



29 Dec 2017 18:44:27
Big question Ajer/ jozo and DM / Griff?

Rich T

1.) 29 Dec 2017 19:13:50
Ajer and Dembele. With Brown, Ntcham and McGregor in midfield.

2.) 29 Dec 2017 19:15:01
Start with DM then put Griffiths on to murder big avles as he tires.

3.) 29 Dec 2017 19:47:38
Ajer and Griff for me every time. HH.



17 Dec 2017 07:24:06
Prediction for today's team

Lustig. Jozo. Bitton Tierney

Brown Ntcham

Forrest. Armstrong. Sinclair


Rich T

1.) 17 Dec 2017 10:30:56
I would prefer to see Ajer given a game rather than Bitton.

2.) 17 Dec 2017 19:41:07
Ritch not sure if Dembele will start. I think a deal is almost done for Dembele to Brighton so maybe they won't risk the player against Hearts. If he does not start today then i believe some deal is done somewhere as there is no other reason not to play him. Only putting 2 and 2 together listening to the Brighton manager a few times and he has agreed a deal for a new striker and he is not from EPL so maybe its MD?

Also no way is Griff a 3rd place striker so there are reasons to drop him and that's to have a look at the new bhoy and see if we need to bring in a new striker in jan or are we going to shell out £7mill to PSG for him? Our CL qualifier starts so early we will need our players in place before summer transfer window. All speculation but let's see who starts today. If its not Dembele then i am off down the bookies dor a MD move to Brighton.



13 Dec 2017 00:52:04
Team for morra


Lustig Boyata Ajer Tierney

Brown Ntcham

Forrest. Rogic. Sinclair


Rich T

1.) 13 Dec 2017 01:11:46
This is what I would like to c us change too


Lustig. Boyata Bitton

Forrest Brown Ntcham Millar


Griff. Dembele.

2.) 13 Dec 2017 08:24:44
One of the few like myself who thinks we should rest Sinclair, Was Miller not voted best youngster on the planet at left wing. Give him the ball and let him go do his thing, would love to see him or Johnstone start.

3.) 13 Dec 2017 10:16:16
Every year we get the young superstars coming through. It never happens with most of them plying their trade with the Dundee's of this world.

The only star we have coming through is young Dembele the rest can't get in our team so how the feck that makes them great players eludes me.

They aren't great if they would be in. They're not and as I said, we have seen what level we are at after the CL.

If they're good enough, they're old enough. If you can't get on the bench ahead of Hayes then your kidding yersel on.

Our academy produces close to feck all in relation to real class. Tierney aside they all end up at shite clubs and then we focus on the next batch who look to me as if they are headed the same way.

our academy must be the easiest gig out there. One truly class player every 20 years. A waste of fecking time.

4.) 13 Dec 2017 10:43:43
Have you seen the youths play this year Mp or is your comment based on the fact they haven't been given game time by Brendan. Find it insane to judge guys like Johnstone, Miller, Aitchison a waste of time. Miller has been shunted to left back after being voted the world best youngster left wing, Johnston was wanted by Chelsea before signing his new contract the day of his debut v St Johnstone and Aitchison is our youngest ever scorer kept out of the side by a Dembele and Griffiths and a youth player from mega rich PSG who we can buy for £7m.

5.) 13 Dec 2017 12:02:46
I'm talking historical empirical fact.

I'm not writing anyone off. I'm stating a fact that year on year we hear about these starlets and tear on year they never reach anywhere near the levels they are being touted at.

I hope all of them are brilliant. I'm just saying I will keep my powder dry.

You either trust Rogers ir you don't. If he thought they had it they would be in. They're not. It's that simple.

6.) 13 Dec 2017 12:39:54
It certainly ain't through lack of ability it's maybe a bit of blind faith towards players who were excellent last season. That's my view on it anyway. Tierney was given a chance and he took it. The same can happen for others I have no doubt about that. Whether they are given a chance is anyones guess. I'm clearly one of the few who thinks 2 or 3 of them can step in and replace the guys needing a rest and i'll keep believing that.

7.) 13 Dec 2017 15:30:16
McGregor and Tierney both came through our youth ranks recently and are quality players.
It happens all over the world, young kids hyped up to be the next big thing and it doesn't happen. Look at Bojan for example, he was once touted as the next Messi and look at him now, he was even linked with us last summer.

An experienced CH would be great but I think Bitton is alright as part of a three in certain games but BR is now using Ajer in there more so if nothing can be done he's gearing Ajer for that position as his favoured two along with Boyata.

Am laughing at the DR this morning they report that from reports coming out of Turkey we bid for Tosnic now they are saying it's been rubbished by Celtic. I am a bit gutted Henderson did not get a good shot thought he had a lot going for him just needed a sustained run in the team now he's joined on a perniment deal good luck to him what your thoughts on him ED.

Rich T

{Ed007's Note - I don't have any thoughts on Henderson except that he was never good enough for Celtic.}

My prediction for tomorrow's bull transfer story will be CH coming in from Chelsea Loan youth player. Masonda in 18 month loan with DM going to Crystal Palace 15m plus Bentekki.

The update from the DR on this story is that a source in Celtic says the interest in the two Croats is rubbish typical.
