Hi ED just wondering have u heard anything about the Coetzee medical saw a report suggesting that the medical has shown a problem with the boy?

Rich T

{Ed007's Note - Rivaldo Coetzee will return to Ajax Cape Town.}

1.) 26 Aug 2017 20:44:36
Broken bone in his right foot?

2.) 26 Aug 2017 21:31:35
Is this the same injury he sustained just before we made a deal with his club or something else that's shown up?

{Ed007's Note - It seems to be.}

3.) 26 Aug 2017 21:27:40
Oh well hope the boy is alright that will have us signing nae body now then PR will no happen and defence will have to do the wae we are PL will be happy not having to spend money.

4.) 26 Aug 2017 20:50:15
Spoke about this on the live chat. boys got a problem in his right foot so transfer can't get completed. hopefully there's another centre half on the radar! Heard on the radio earlier ED that Brendan was in Paris on Friday and they mentioned the boy duverne. i know uve spoke about this guy before, any info buddy? Really hope we bring in a quality centre back!

{Ed007's Note - I don't know if Rodgers met Jean Kevin Duverne mate.}

5.) 26 Aug 2017 22:08:42
Can't c it happening I thought he was at the draw for CL but it won't be long now to see what's what that's no Celtics fault but I am hoping that something can be done but it's a slim hope.

{Ed007's Note - The draw for the CL is in Monaco so if he was specifically in Paris it's nothing to do with the draw. I wouldn't completely write off the chances of Coatzee signing btw.}

6.) 26 Aug 2017 22:11:34
It was on Snyde to be fair ED so probably pish! Lol. they just mentioned Brendan had been in Paris and the name duverne got mentioned! Hope we've got a few things in the pipe line ED!

{Ed007's Note - Ed002's going to try and find out if there's any news on Duverne over the weekend, probably Monday now.}

7.) 26 Aug 2017 22:26:03
Nice one ED πŸ‘πŸ» Well we'll all be put out our misery by Thursday, hopefully we'll get some get some good news! Lol.

{Ed007's Note - I'm sure we will, oh yeah of little faith.}

8.) 27 Aug 2017 00:47:35
Do you honestly think we will have signings in by Thursday ED? I am not so sure.

{Ed007's Note - I'm 100% confident we will, Ricardo. Now after me, Hail Mary full of Grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed are thou...........

9.) 27 Aug 2017 00:58:57
100% ED! Putting your neck on the line there mate! I admire your confidence lol! I'll just wait til Thursday to see. been here so many times with our club and been let down! But I live in hope lol.

{Ed007's Note - My bags are packed, if we've not signed anyone I'm off to do missionary work in Blantyre!}

10.) 27 Aug 2017 01:04:37
If we need to wait until January for Rivaldo then so be it.

{Ed007's Note - I'm actually quite surprised that the deal has supposedly been called off over what has been reported as a minor injury. Maybe some further examinations will put our medical staffs minds at rest. The lad's been comfortably playing, called up to play for South Africa and people said the medical was a formality. We paid 4 times the money on Kouassi and I think this deal might yet go through.}

11.) 27 Aug 2017 01:15:27
That's as good a place as any to lay low for a while ED! Haha!

{Ed007's Note - I'm sitting here in the dark on my tablet because the TV in the bedroom died and with Grotbags snoring and snorting like a pig next to me because she's up at 5 for work. I'm living the fecking dream mate - and I don't know if that smell is coming from Grotbags or Yoda!
Blantyre doesn't sound so bad now does it?}

12.) 27 Aug 2017 01:39:41
If we were willing to give him a medical with a supposed pulled hammy then this wee bone shouldn't pose too many problems surely. Another CB on top of him has to be a priority though.

13.) 27 Aug 2017 01:52:57
Saw a suggestion that there was a bone not fused right on the boys foot I hope we do get one or two in but would not surprise me if we didn't don't want to get too much hope as don't want to get mayor let down.

14.) 27 Aug 2017 08:45:56
Looking back on previous windows I'm preparing myself to feel let down again. We have been in this position at many transfer windows recently, leave stuff to the end . Then when they fall through we hear the same guff from the board saying "it's a difficult window, something went wrong at the last minute, player had his head turned by an opportunity somewhere else. At the minute with the injuries, paddy not being here I definitely think we are worse off than last season . I'd love 2-3 players around the same mould of ntcham to come in for once ( obviously I mean in different positions )

15.) 27 Aug 2017 09:59:39
Celtic will be looking at his sell on value. Any potential to screw that up and we back off. Remains to be seen how serious the situation is. I hope we can work this out because we need a player of that type of ability.

16.) 27 Aug 2017 02:26:13
Haha grotbags, Now there's a blast from the past! Been with a few in ma time who make grotbags look like Cindy Crawford mate! Lol! That was in ma binge drinking days but, good times πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.

{Ed007's Note - Lol we've all been there.}

17.) 27 Aug 2017 11:37:29
heard we are going for scandanavian Termund Giantsbane. imposing character he stands at 9'2".

experience in Eros and the NOTW league where is recent stats in last game is 53 tackles of which resulted in 52 confirmed kills

he has a low pass completion rate and when asked about this he said "whats a pass".

sporting a recent head gash and spear injury - but nothing the physio was threaten not to mention.

just what we need.

18.) 27 Aug 2017 15:17:05
Oh and of course a good record against zombies.



01 Feb 2017 10:01:00
Poor ciftci not even Motherwell took him on radio Scotland, they spoke to his agent who said that the phone call never came.

The DR reporting two loans out of Celtic young boy to Inverness and cifti ( Terrible spelling) going to a team in Holland

Rich T



29 Jan 2017 13:17:54
I see the DR are reporting Gordon wants to talk to Chelsea check out options I don't think he would be second choice come the summer wae There spending power they would bring in someone else so he would end up being 3rd choice never mind 2nd choice

Hi Eds CL game disappointed more with the wae we played than the result that could happen to anyone there. Now the most important game now lies ahead and our demestic form has dipped slightly I think we need a convincing performance morra cause if we don't I think Hibs will have us. Chances to the team to freshen it up need to be made and am sure they will but what do u think those need to be made? I would like to see MacGreggor in for Ntcham Rogic in for Armstrong Wae Dembele starting too what are your thoughts on the game and line up.

Rich T

{Ed007's Note - We need to make sure that we aren't overran in midfield like we were at Celtic Park the other week, Brown being back should help that. The only real decision is who partners Boyata in the central defence with Sviatchenko getting back to fitness and Ajer looking to play as well but I can see Rodgers going with Bitton in there.


1.) 20 Oct 2017 11:46:29
I agree but think that we need Rogic in there as he seems to be the one player who can take the ball under pressure and hold on to it and make that pass and regards to it's time for him to return Griff doing well but needs a we break.

{Ed007's Note - I'd replace McGregor with Rogic as the game wears on.}

2.) 20 Oct 2017 12:10:24
Would have Armstrong in for ntcham ED, ntcham for me has really struggled the past few games and Armstrong brings more energy to the midfield! And I'd play ajer before bitton, give the young guy a chance to prove himself.

{Ed007's Note - Armstrong battled to be fit for Wednesday and although he ran himself into the ground he didn't have a good game and I'm questioning how fit he really was. I think a spot on the bench is the best Armstrong can hope for at Hampden tomorrow.}

3.) 20 Oct 2017 12:17:47
Ntcham should be nowhere near the team if we want to win. A man down. He shouldn't get in before any of our midfield ootuons apart from Hayes.

We can't afford to okay Hibs with ten men, the other giving them the ball. He's awful and a total waste if he had cuts Β£1m never mind nearly five. If we are winning maybe bring him in to try and raise his confidence, but even brimming he's still sliwung us down.

4.) 20 Oct 2017 12:54:30
I like that line-up, Ed, but I think Ntcham may be due some time for reflection, and I want to see a bit more of Ajer. Don't envisage any difficulty with the hibees. One thing I'll say about the team with confidence: they are all real pros now, and having chased shadows for 90 minutes will make them appreciate their own domestic supremacy this weekend.

{Ed007's Note - Maybe Kouassi in there beside Brown could be an option.....

5.) 20 Oct 2017 13:04:38
I was thinking the same thing. He also looks a bit ragged, in the Ntcham mould. I wonder it what that is all about really, as they both can obviously play and have the physique to dominate the middle of the park.

{Ed007's Note - We need to keep in mind that it's still a semi-final against a team that could have beaten us last time we met. Brown being back is a big boost and he will be invaluable in there against McGinn who ran the show last time.}

6.) 20 Oct 2017 13:18:31
What about this to shake things up a bit?

---------De Vries---------

{Ed007's Note - Not for me in a semi-final mate.}

7.) 20 Oct 2017 13:26:00
Brown is key: his presence also allows a bit of experimentation I feel, if we need it.

That showing by McGinn was an eye-opener for me.

{Ed007's Note - McGinn's a cracking young player and hopefully when the time is right for him to leave Hibs he finds himself Celtic bound. I said last season that McGinn was the only player in Scotland that I would sign.}

8.) 20 Oct 2017 13:41:01
I remember it, Ed. My old man (hibee) has been keen on him for a while too. Until last week I was thinking he'd struggle to displace any in our midfield, but if available for a game like tomorrow's he'd be a great option. I'd definitely be happy if we made an offer, and would hope for family reasons that it wouldn't be derisory.

{Ed007's Note - I'd be delighted if we could offload Bitton and replace him with McGinn in the squad but does Bitton's new found versatility now mean Rodgers sees him as a squad player? If we get the defence sorted out and there's be no need for Bitton to cover at CB then McGinn would be a great - and cheapish - replacement for him in the squad.}

9.) 20 Oct 2017 14:17:27
Would have McGregor beside brown and Rogic in too
Lustig. Bitton Boyata. Tierney
Brown. McGregor
Forrest. Rogic. Sinclair

10.) 20 Oct 2017 14:39:49
Ed, How about resting/ bench SS and play Calum on the left and Rogic in the 10

Then you have a front four that are all relatively fresh? (y)

11.) 20 Oct 2017 15:16:39
Biton is a funny one. Too lackadaisical for the Scottish game, probably. I found myself wondering if he wouldn't be the kind of player we'd have liked to have on Wednesday tho: he's unflappable and might buy us some time on the ball (even if it is going laterally) . I think Ed suggested starting him in the midfield in one post - and I scorned the notion - but, really, it might have given us some breathing space.

I'd still punt him given a reasonable offer, don't get me wrong, but I wouldn't be surprised if he might go on to really contribute to a differently composed team in a different sort of league.

{Ed007's Note - I put up a formation with Bitton sitting in protecting the defence which would have meant if Lustig was going to be pulled out to help Gamboa Bitton could slot in beside Boyata in the middle. He slows the play down which isn't appreciated or really needed in Scottish football but is ideal for European games imo, especially when we're under the cosh a bit.}

12.) 20 Oct 2017 18:38:02
I agree with your team selection Ed007 .
I disagree that playing Ntcham is a man down . Funny I thought he scored the winner last Saturday . Not bad for a nobody .



17 Oct 2017 13:10:38
Hi EDs any squad news hearing Lustig may not make it anything use have heard on that or anyother news?

Rich T

{Ed007's Note - Lustig was rested on Saturday after feeling a tweak in his calf when he came back from international duty and it was decided not to risk him against Dundee. As far as I know he is still in contention to start tomorrow night.}

1.) 17 Oct 2017 13:34:40
Cool any rumbles as to what we will do morra in terms of team same as last away game looks good for me what do u think or like to see ED?

{Ed007's Note -

-Lustig --Simunovic---Boyata----Tierney---

Or maybe Rodgers will put Bitton sitting in front of the defence in a 4-3-3

-Lustig --Simunovic---Boyata----Tierney---

2.) 17 Oct 2017 14:30:03
I wasn't aware that Broony was in contention - that was a pleasant surprise! Not expecting too much on Wednesday, as I don't remember us many German opponent in Europe, so any kind of result would be amazing.
However, would have preferred the Sunday cup semi final instead of Saturday lunch time - just to give us more recovery time - but there you go.

{Ed007's Note - Brown has trained every day since he returned and today took part in a training session at Celtic Park, I'll be really surprised if he doesn't start tomorrow night.}

3.) 17 Oct 2017 14:45:01
I'd prefer the 4-5-1. I think they always seem more comfortable in that set up.

4.) 17 Oct 2017 14:52:47
Ad go with that ed but armstrong for ntcham ir he might stick bitton behind the midfield 2 and leave rogic out.

5.) 17 Oct 2017 15:48:20
Wouldn't play Nctham, but apart from that swap with Armstrong, I think the best team picks itself.

6.) 17 Oct 2017 16:59:11
I would play Armstrong if he is fully fit, rather than Ntcham.

7.) 17 Oct 2017 18:18:21
Fancy forrest for a starting role tomorrow nite: he's not had much of a look in lately it seems. Big fan of Ntcham, but I think I could be persuaded that Armstrong might be a better pick right now. I hope and pray Ed's hunch about Biton is wide of the mark: it would make for a more defensive lineup than we've fielded recently for sure!



11 Oct 2017 14:33:36
Alright ED any news on the injury front yet after internationals how's the squad shaping up do u know?

Rich T

{Ed007's Note - As far as I know everyone due back is fine except for Ajer who
picked up a shoulder knock whilst away with Norway.
Sviatchenko is back in full training and could even make the weekend squad.}

1.) 11 Oct 2017 16:01:20
Hows jozo mate thoght he was injured.

{Ed007's Note - I've not heard anything new on him, sorry.}

2.) 11 Oct 2017 16:28:04
Thanks ed.

{Ed007's Note - (yes)

3.) 11 Oct 2017 20:30:40
I had a wee smile at ajers response to a partial shoulder dislocation. β€œWhen you play for Norway, there's a hell in you"
Popped it back in and back on the park to see out the win.

4.) 12 Oct 2017 09:33:41
yeah in the same report about Jozo being injured, they said Lustig was crocked too, didn't stop him playing 2 more 90 minutes and scoring. Medjit shoite i reckon.



27 Sep 2017 14:57:22
Alright guys team for tonight?
Ntcham/ Armstrong?
Roberts/ Forrest?

Rich T

1.) 27 Sep 2017 15:09:04
10 men and no KT your a confident man πŸ˜….

2.) 27 Sep 2017 15:27:32
Think itll be 451 maself


3.) 27 Sep 2017 15:50:09

Lustig Simunovic Boyata Tierney

Brown Ntcham

Roberts Rogic Sinclair


4.) 27 Sep 2017 15:57:19
I'd pick Forrest over Roberts just now.

5.) 27 Sep 2017 16:09:08

Put ntcham in for Armstrong to add a bit more strength in midfield and I feel wee mcgregor can keep the ball well which we'll need tonite!

6.) 27 Sep 2017 18:08:03
I'd go exactly how BigBhoy has.

7.) 27 Sep 2017 20:09:24
I thought I had read Dembele wasn't fit though.

8.) 27 Sep 2017 20:06:08
I'd pick the same team as played on Saturday. No way would I leave Armstrong out.



08 Sep 2017 22:59:09
Hi EDs don't know if u noticed or anyone mentioned after the game Wee PR looked as if he was limping a wee bit gave u heard anything?

Rich T

{Ed007's Note - It looks like he was fine.}

1.) 08 Sep 2017 23:10:41
The wee man hasn't played much this season and was probably a bit stiff. BR came out after the game and said he had no injury worries after the game in view of Tuesday.

2.) 09 Sep 2017 00:41:30
That's good he had a great game again and it was interesting that him and Forrest played together the night Hamilton did not stand a chance.

{Ed007's Note - Why don't you come on the live chats during games, Ricardo?}

3.) 09 Sep 2017 00:44:11
OMG take a breath please paddy will b ok for Tuesday what will be will be and all that COME ON THE HOOPS, YAS HAIL HAIL THW ZOMBIES ARE DIED 😎😎😎😎.

At this moment it's like the possible quiet before the storm cause this has got to be the quietest deadline day not a rumour in sight not a sniff of a name coming forward. Either Celtic and others are very good at keeping things really quiet or they are very quiet and the jobs done.
