Ed you heard anything about Sakho on loan? My Liverpool mate reckons this is one of our targets today.


{Ed007's Note - Klopp wants Sakho gone but the asking price is too high so he will therefore likely have to go on loan. The player has rejected the opportunity to join Besiktas, Stoke City and WBA but Sunderland might be more appealing to him.
As far as I am aware there has been no contact from Celtic regarding Sakho.

Cheers Ed appreciated.

{Ed007's Note - You're welcome buddy. (yes)

Gamboa having medical.


1.) 29 Aug 2016 14:13:39
Just heard that tae.
Fee has been agreed.
Heard anything ed?

{Ed007's Note - I mentioned on another thread that I heard Gamboa was due in Glasgow today.}

2.) 29 Aug 2016 14:24:18
Hi SB any idea how good this guy is?

3.) 29 Aug 2016 14:35:34
Think he played in world cup QF so git good experience at high level.

4.) 29 Aug 2016 15:20:30
Sorry cprs don't know much about him except he is lightning fast! Typical YouTube clips he looks good and has a shot on him. Apparently doesn't suit Pulis style of play.

5.) 29 Aug 2016 15:33:09
Plays for Costa Rica but he couldn't get a game for West Brom.

6.) 29 Aug 2016 15:54:17
theres a shocker Pulis does not do fast lol.

7.) 29 Aug 2016 17:28:18
anyone know what the price he's got on him.

8.) 29 Aug 2016 17:43:19
They are saying 1m ardoyne bhoy. Aye cprs1 the tactics played by Pullis, Allerdyce and Moyes would get football stopped.

9.) 29 Aug 2016 17:58:14
Reports saying around a million.

10.) 29 Aug 2016 19:57:40
i say a million is a bargain.

11.) 30 Aug 2016 12:40:35
Pulis didn't fancy him because he's only 5'9 and not a 6ft+ monster.



27 Aug 2016 16:23:01
An offer has been made to Everton to take James McCarthy on loan.


1.) 27 Aug 2016 17:13:09
Loan player is not what we need. We are expecting a couple of good quality perminent signings.

2.) 27 Aug 2016 17:59:36
correct me if i am wrong, but is McCarthys contract not up next season, if we take him on loan come jan he can sign a pre contract with us. so we will receive him for a loan fee this season then nothing next season. a couple of seasons with us and no doubt he will go back to the EPL for a decent amount considering he is only 25.

fantastic piece of business if we can get it through.

{Ed007's Note - McCarthy signed a new five year deal last season taking him up to 2020.}

3.) 27 Aug 2016 18:10:01
Why do we do this time and time again? Bank a decent cheque and then scrimp in the bargain bucket with either cheap crap or loans?

McCarthy would be a good signing but what is the point in a years loan when we won't be able to afford him at the end anyway? Makes no sense.

4.) 27 Aug 2016 18:24:26
oh well.

5.) 27 Aug 2016 20:09:50
Niall i would imagine if its a loan there would be a fee set for option to buy.

I wouldn't stress about the loan rumours there's nothing concrete to confirm this it could still be outright buy mate.

6.) 27 Aug 2016 20:36:57
Think there will be am option to buy and if not we've got a very good player for the next year like wee paddy and it still frees up cash for a permanent signing calm doon bhoys.

7.) 27 Aug 2016 20:58:38

That's not what bothers me. We will spend the rest of the time until Wednesday night trying to tie this deal up and we won't spend another penny.

I just thought for once we would spend a bit of the money we are about to make on a few decent signings.



25 Aug 2016 22:56:21
Bye bye Johansen.


1.) 25 Aug 2016 23:20:39
Where has he gone?

2.) 25 Aug 2016 23:24:26
Fulham. much we getting for him skinny?

Also PL said only one player in? we need at least 3, c@nt is going to pocket all the CL money? or will there be a few twists.

3.) 25 Aug 2016 23:33:26
Is Johansen sold?

4.) 25 Aug 2016 23:48:36
Medical tomorrow with Fulham is the rumour? don't know what the fee is but did we not knock back Β£2 mill for him before?

5.) 26 Aug 2016 06:26:37
According to the press its Fulham in a Β£2 million deal. Supposedly down there for a medical.

6.) 26 Aug 2016 07:09:50
Lawell is playing the game he is public ally stating 1 but actively trying for more. Tuesday will be a busy day and possibly 1 in over weekend.

7.) 26 Aug 2016 07:15:45
shame really, if he got his form back wouldve been great on the left side of a 3 man mid, good luck SJ.

8.) 26 Aug 2016 07:49:36
If you read lawells words he said at least one more signing so there might be more than one simples.

9.) 26 Aug 2016 08:18:16
Johansen is in his last year is he not? Apparently he rejected another offer (don't blame him) , time to cash in. Fulham have got a bargain there given some fees I've seen in the Championship. Let's see it added to this kitty.

10.) 26 Aug 2016 08:35:10
That's the way I read it Mally, at least one more I think we could see 2 or 3 new players.
Everyone went mad when they were saying PL is at it as he said there would be one more.

Wait until Wed night and see what happens.

11.) 26 Aug 2016 09:21:43
Irritating loss.
When he has his day SJ could do a great job for us, and in several positions. If its a numbers game as for thinning out the squad, I would easily keep him ahead of Armstrong, Commons, GMS, Henderson etc.

12.) 26 Aug 2016 09:50:27
F him. Keeps rejecting contract discussions and imo not any better than the mass of CM we have. Let him go and add cash to pot for better than all the rest not just another "who do i pick today" CM. Good bit of business imo.

13.) 26 Aug 2016 10:14:48
Well said shugmckie. He had a good 9 months which he was exceptional (everyone remembers that) but that was a long time ago. Problem I think with him is arrogance. By the sounds of it he was offered a couple of decent contracts which were not up to his evaluation of himself. He's done nothing for a good while and has been mostly a passenger. Now forrest I wanted rid and was gobsmacked when he got offered new deal, but you can see why, were as it seems johanson has/ cant/ doesn't want to give anymore and for that he has go but with a thank you for what he has done. There is one or two that can join him also.

14.) 26 Aug 2016 11:03:19
Johansen was a lightweight midfielder he was ok playing in Scotland but so are so many others, it is great news too my ears that he is off, how can we not go and buy some of the players from the teams we beat to get in to CL groups? there where some good strong midfielders in those teams that gave 110% for there team, and i bet some if not all the Astana players would jump at the chance to play for Celtic the same would be with the players from Hapoel Beer Sheva side we got the money and should go and take some of those players if possible.

15.) 26 Aug 2016 11:04:00
Somebody once said football is nothing without the fans. Getting booed of a pitch - totally underservedly - and used as a whipping boy, not sure I'd be happy hanging around to be fair. Most Scandinavians grow up wanting to play in England or Germany too. Good luck to him.

16.) 26 Aug 2016 14:13:42
What actually happened with Johanson bhoys? As ciaran rightly noted he had a good start to his celts career then just stopped performing.

I wonder if he had a fall out with someone behind the scenes we've qualified for the CL and have some cracking nights ahead and he heads to Fulham lol.

Any scope on this ed?

{Ed007's Note - Johansen simply turned down the contract we offered him.}

17.) 26 Aug 2016 17:34:26
Johansen also had a few players turn on him due to a very nasty challenge on Tierney during training. Players literally had to be pulled off him.

18.) 26 Aug 2016 17:52:00
Cheers skinny.

19.) 26 Aug 2016 17:37:25
Johansen was a good player 4 us, very under rated by 2 many fans n the booing was just awful, I expect 2 hear that at ibrokes, not Celtic park 2 1 of our own.
Again just hope we bring in a quality midfielder to replace him and another striker, oh n a goalkeeper as I'm not sure about those we have, never seen de Vries to be fair but we need a keeper that instills confidence in others.
Hail hail.

20.) 26 Aug 2016 22:24:53
Some of our fans treated him badly, early last season and shortly after he had won player of the year.



22 Aug 2016 20:10:14
After me saying Mccarthy rumour is bullshit it's technically not! It's not 100% correct though if you know what I mean.


1.) 22 Aug 2016 20:22:54
100% correct as in its definitely a rumour or are you holding something back?

2.) 22 Aug 2016 20:26:45
more info mate lol.

3.) 22 Aug 2016 20:27:56
Very good Skinny, you know nothing it would seem.

4.) 22 Aug 2016 20:28:35
No skinnybhoy Uve lost me! Lol.

5.) 22 Aug 2016 20:36:31
OK SB that post just confused the hell out of everyone. lol
now SB we know your the man in the know, so is there a real Deal in the offering for a "big name" buy or are we all just hoping there is?


6.) 22 Aug 2016 20:46:56
he is unhappy at Everton and wants out. Would love to come to Celtic and play champions league football. However he first needs to speak to his agent. Hence its not true but it's not false. There must also be another player lined up. Sorry Dafabet on this one I know plenty.

7.) 22 Aug 2016 20:47:07

Please don't big SB up. He has delivered nothing that wasn't already out there. We could all write exactly what is already written online but the difference is we don't.

8.) 22 Aug 2016 20:56:54
FFS Niall if you knew anything then would realise I said many times it was total bull! I was wrong hence above post.

9.) 22 Aug 2016 21:10:55
Got to agree with Niall here SB. lots of ifs buts and maybe! But I suppose it is a rumour site lol! Wouldn't Mind McCarthy to fair but really can't see him leaving EPL! God just imagine the anti climax if we don't sign anybody else this transfer window! After all the talk about this player and that player! Lol. bloody hope we're all not getting her hopes up for nothing!

10.) 22 Aug 2016 21:47:39
Said this the other day and got slaughtered for it from Sparky1888, Paradisewon and also you Skinnyboy.

11.) 22 Aug 2016 21:48:43
Skinny you don't know plenty. You are reworking information gathered from Celtic sites.

12.) 22 Aug 2016 21:54:52
Skinnybhoy. look at me i know something and i'm not telling yous. get it telt.

13.) 22 Aug 2016 22:05:36
Steggsy your right and I apologise it's not total bullshit! Dafa mate I can't make you believe me that's up to you bud but I ain't surfing other sites for info I've known James since he was kicking a ball in Arnprior ash pitch. BRFA I've told you in previous post see above.

14.) 22 Aug 2016 22:17:30
I think McCarthy would be a great signing. If we could come up with an acceptable fee I think the wages side of things could be worked on. The boys Celtic daft and I do feel if there's genuine interest there's a deal to be done there.

15.) 22 Aug 2016 22:20:00

If you tell us something that isn't already common knowledge I said I would bow down to your superior knowledge. So far you haven't.

Also you have kept your options totally open with the marquee signing talk to the point that you can't be wrong as the story has changed so many times.

16.) 22 Aug 2016 22:25:25
Just because McCarthy isn't happy at Everton and would love to play for Celtic (apparently) doesn't mean that Celtic are interested in him.

17.) 22 Aug 2016 22:36:23
Exactly ice man. We have asked him about the rumours and I posted response above. He would love to come and play champions league football but needs to speak to his agent. It's more than possible rumour started with agent. I'm being honest thought no way 100% nonsense but my above post came direct.

18.) 22 Aug 2016 22:40:34
Niall your right mate so no a problem that's why this is a rumour site people post what they hear some from genuine sources others from taxi drivers uncles dog. BUT IF he is going to sign and I post to say 100% go put bet on you won't want to know?

19.) 22 Aug 2016 23:18:31

I'm not bother about James McCarthy. We should have signed him when we had the chance 4 to 5 years ago. That ship has sailed as his fee and wages are out of our range.

The reason I have been harsh on you is I just know that Celtic fans have been crying out for a hero type like Larsson, Keane, Bellamy or Miku :) affer years of Lassad, Bangura and Balde type signings and it isn't fair to build up this marquee signing talk. If it all falls flat and doesn't materialise some will be left disappointed at a time when we should all be optimistic about our club going forward.

20.) 22 Aug 2016 23:21:01
Skinnybhoy would love this to happen mate and the fact that the lad seems open to the idea is encouraging. Guess we'll just have to ! The next 7 days will be interesting.

21.) 22 Aug 2016 23:38:48
Niall mate this is a rumours site nobody forces anyone to read or get hopes up. I only post what have been reliably informed direct. My marquee signing source has a high profile job in Celtic. I only posted what told, a whole manner of things must materialise qualification is number 1. I'm sure in previous years we would have had signings in place only to collapse. To be honest I would be happy to just shift more dead weight.

22.) 23 Aug 2016 08:08:51
Skinnybhoy is Mccarthy going to be our marquee signing?

23.) 23 Aug 2016 09:52:49
Skinnybhoy - you've been raving away about a marquee signing, like I said previously, it's hardly anything profound or insightful, the majority of fans thought when Rodgers got the job he would be backed with cash, and 90% also think that a big signing was possible if we qualify for the Champions League! Then the other day when a lad posted about McCarthy you said it was nonsense because he was on 70k per week. Well he's not on that wage, and now you're saying you know him. So to sum up you're saying we're getting a marquee signing but won't go near 70k. You sound like a nice guy but I don't take you seriously! Why try to be something you're not? One thing I can't be doing with is characters trying to be super-fans who know all the inside info. If they can back it up great, but why treat the rest of Celtic supporters like mugs if it's all in your head, or like the rest of the guys have said things that are on other INFERIOR (hope you appreciate that Ed) sites. Anyway Skinny, and the rest of the troops, enjoy the game tonight, please God we make it because it's the biggest payout we'll have had in our history, with the way it's been changed and with BT, we could end up with Β£25/ 30 million, it would set us up for the next few years.

24.) 23 Aug 2016 10:02:57
Marco I would think it will be someone else from what I'm told deal is set up! McCarthy on other hand would love to come and play champions league and unhappy at Everton. Most possibly his agent started rumour however he is aware of the rumours said he needs to speak to agent so doubt very much anything agreed there yet. Hence why it's not all false but not all true either mate.

25.) 23 Aug 2016 11:47:19
I've heard international clearance applied for by the club for a player who will sign on Friday, Also heard that P Roberts is quite far down the line on a permanent deal.6 million up front City paid not 12 like rumored, the other 6 was add owns, England caps etc, . we would pay City 6 million, . Now that is . lol, true or pish? Who knows.

26.) 23 Aug 2016 12:34:31
No problem Delphic you are entitled to your opinion mate but I don't need to make up stories for a website. If you don't like my posts don't read them.

27.) 23 Aug 2016 13:33:04
I had a dig at Skinnybhoy but it was in jest, lads its a rumour site and everyone who has a rumour or info can post it, it may be from a reliable source or from a taxi driver, I've also had info and it turned out to be rubbish and that was from an investor. Anyhow today I've heard the Roberts rumour that we are trying to make the deal permanent again it could be crap but its a bit of gossip till the window slams shut.
Skinnybhoy hopefully yours comes in.
Hail Hail.

28.) 23 Aug 2016 13:52:26
I'm sorry mate, I didn't mean to have a go at you, it's just annoying when fans (not just you) say things as a matter of fact. Another lad said McCarthey had a year left on his contract, which if true would change my whole argument, when he has 4 years left. Then you say it's nonsense because he gets 70k, which is also wrong, then you top it off by saying you know him. What is the point of just saying things that back up your argument, anybody can do that, it's not normal behaviour though. McCarthey is a good all round midfielder, and if like Snodgrass was near the end of his contract is think it was good business to get him for a small fee/ Bosman. I've just never seen him as a Β£20 million pound player though. He doesn't dominate the midfield like a Kante. It didn't surprise me at all that Koeman doesn't rate him. I love hearing rumours, just not the ones that people have been talking about in the boozer for months.

29.) 23 Aug 2016 13:45:14
Ed with regards to Kev 1962 post would Lucas require international clearance?

{Ed007's Note - Of course he would, any player moving to a new association needs international clearance.}

30.) 23 Aug 2016 15:00:51
Guys first time poster, just heard someone close to McCarthy that he is wanting a loan move to us due to family/ personal reasons, mite be pish but as I say they are close to him so thought I would post it.

31.) 23 Aug 2016 17:26:18
Mccarthy deal could be a loan move. Know his family from castlemilk and drink with his uncle pat in the beechwood. James wants away and would like a move back home.

32.) 23 Aug 2016 19:40:28
Cmilkbhoy best not say you know him will get shot down in flames mate like me.

33.) 23 Aug 2016 22:39:25
I hope Mccarthy does want to come and we tell him to ram it up his jazz drum.

Any player who walks out of a stadium after being subbed is a fud and is better of as far away from us as possible.

34.) 24 Aug 2016 02:43:40
I know McCarthy well, he bought my gerbil. He's going to sign for Cowndenbeath instead. We will bring back Andy Payton out of retirement and sign him for 2 Mars bars a week! FACT!

35.) 25 Aug 2016 20:51:33

27 Aug 2016 23:17:49
With regards to players leaving and came in. If you combine transfer fees Celtic have so far only spent net total between Β£750,000 andΒ£1,000,000.


1.) 28 Aug 2016 11:37:57
great innit skinny, improved the squad and not spent any dosh yet.



23 Aug 2016 23:29:38
Well done Celtic! Every team in SPL to benefit from Β£250,000 except Sevco as were not in League previous season. That cash goes to Dundee Utd πŸ˜˜πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.


1.) 23 Aug 2016 23:40:24

2.) 24 Aug 2016 00:03:25
Hi skinny, never knew of that windfall for SPL clubs, so is that a solidarity bonus of 1.5 mill between the clubs?

3.) 24 Aug 2016 06:18:47
That is the cherry on top of my sundae tonight , love it .

4.) 24 Aug 2016 07:58:59
Morning Bhoys - I am en ex Scot born and bred in Glasgow and have been a passionate Celtic supporter since the age of 6. I am also Jewish and have been living in Israel since 1982. I watch every Celtic game. I was at the game last night - couldn't get a ticket for our end so had to suffer with the Hapoel fans. It was hot and very humid - the stadium is small and the supporters are real close to the pitch. The atmosphere was therefore very threatening.
Hapoel had nothing to lose and came in to the game relaxed and with purpose. We lost all the one on one battles and frankly looked afraid on the pitch. When we had the ball (which wasnt very often) we did little with it and lost it very quickly. There was no pressing - usually a big part of BR tactics. We game them far too much space on both wings and the midfield provided little defensive cover. It was a poor performance and we were very lucky not to lose a third.
Hope BR finds a way to improve our away performances in the group stages.
Glad were through
Hail Hail.

{Ed007's Note - It's nice to hear from you. And btw, what religion you are doesn't matter on here.}



22 Aug 2016 14:49:21
If we are to have a marquee signing he "must be able to press and run" according to BR. That rules out a few who have been so far mentioned.


1.) 22 Aug 2016 15:21:01
Is Usain Bolt any good at ironing?, could be him.

2.) 22 Aug 2016 15:24:17
I see what he is saying Skinny but if it was the likes of Xavi he might change his mind lol, tho I can never see it happening.

3.) 22 Aug 2016 15:49:01
I think it's a dig at joey Barton.

4.) 22 Aug 2016 16:44:11
Forget the veterans if we get the CL money let's get a vibrant fit midfielder that can get about the park and create.

5.) 22 Aug 2016 18:32:41
It's not a dig at anyone I M O, it's basically a requirement for our midfield and attackers
B R won't ask some of these players to run their guts out and press all over the place . I expect Commons won't see much time on the field as he doesn't appreciate that side of the game.

6.) 22 Aug 2016 18:54:53
I really wish johansen would get back to form and get on Rodgers side. Think he could fit in well as a box to box player and he was my favourite player 2 seasons ago. Very strange what has happened to his form over the past year.

7.) 22 Aug 2016 20:13:16
Nt87, think johansen getting a few games in the team with the confidence in us right now I do feel there's a position there 4 him. He was tremendous in his 1st season n even when out of form n carrying injuries, or coming back from them, he was always the 1 chasing down further up top and pressing high. Br wants us playing that way and johansen would fit Brendan's style of play perfectly.
Just hope we don't sell him.



19 Aug 2016 21:53:58
Would Lucas Leiva be considered as a marquee signing?


1.) 19 Aug 2016 22:38:23
I would reckon so. For a club in Scotland that's a big player to have. Would give brown the freedom he needs.

2.) 19 Aug 2016 22:43:50
Good player but no my idea of what I'd like to see at Celtic Park.

3.) 19 Aug 2016 22:52:10
Wot about james ward prowse from Southampton? Good young player. Or essien. He's on a free jus now.

4.) 20 Aug 2016 07:47:02
Skinny is that a rhetorical question?

5.) 20 Aug 2016 09:08:17
No Dafabet he fits mould of what we could be looking at just wanted others opinion on would he be classed as marquee.
