Ed, One name that hasn't been mentioned this transfer window is Martin Odegaard at Real Madrid. Is there still an interest in him or did that end when Ronny left.

{Ed007's Note - He'll either be loaned to another Spanish team or stay at Madrid.}

1.) 24 Aug 2016 09:47:45
Cheers Ed, One more question if you have time. If we draw Man City in Groups stage can we play Roberts against them, Assuming we don't buy him this week and its still the 18month loan deal.

{Ed007's Note - Going back to when Atletico Madrid had Chelsea's Thibaut Courtois on loan, UEFA said that:

'Both the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations contain clear provisions which strictly forbid any club to exert, or attempt to exert, any influence whatsoever over the players that another club may (or may not) field in a match. It follows that any provision in a private contract between clubs which might function in such a way as to influence who a club fields in a match is null, void and unenforceable so far as UEFA is concerned.
Furthermore, any attempt to enforce such a provision would be a clear violation of both the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations and would therefore be sanctioned accordingly.'

Basically even if there is such a clause in the loan deal it is not enforceable under UEFA statutes.}

2.) 24 Aug 2016 10:32:12
Might not be able to inforce it but think it could wreck our good relationship with city though.

3.) 24 Aug 2016 10:44:12
Thanks for taking the time to reply with that Ed. Paddy Power!

{Ed007's Note - (yes)

4.) 24 Aug 2016 11:12:58
Mo Bangura.

5.) 24 Aug 2016 15:55:10
Roberts stated at the start of the season that if the situation arose then he would play against them.
Also remember Courtois being allowed to play for Atletico Madrid v Chelsea when he was on loan a few years back.

6.) 26 Aug 2016 07:33:32
Seen somewhere than man city won't stand in his way if he wants to play against them.



23 May 2016 11:20:27
Hi Ed,

Any truth in the Snodgrass rumours. I would love to see him at Celtic Park. For me he is Scotland best player when fit, He knows everything about the Club and would give his all in the Hoops. I read an article recently where he said every training session he stays behind to work on different aspects of his game. That's the type of player I want to see in our team. Not sure what he would cost I think he has one year left on his contract but maybe last seasons injury might take the asking price down. If the rumours are true I hope we get him in asap rather than get him on a pre contract in January.

{Ed007's Note - As far as I know there's no truth in the rumours, Stan.}

1.) 23 May 2016 12:00:58
Dammit, ok thanks Ed.

{Ed007's Note - (yes)

2.) 23 May 2016 12:56:17
He'd be a very good signing for me too Stan!

3.) 23 May 2016 15:19:17
If it was true I would imagine him been on a decent wage.

4.) 24 May 2016 12:59:56
Apparently he has bought a house in Newton Mearns - but not because he is moving club- because his wife prefers to live in Scotland and can't settle down south?

5.) 24 May 2016 14:10:39
Snodgrass definitely bought the house in Newton Mearns its around the corner from me and he bought it off of Kenny Miller, pretty well documented.

Great Signing if it comes off and a likely one IMO.



18 May 2016 13:55:10
Dermot Desmond on Sly Spurts "We have talked to a lot of Managers, Hoping to appoint within 4 or 5 days if we complete negotiations. We are looking forward to building up to be a Champions League Club.

Have to say I am impressed with these words it's what I want to hear.

1.) 18 May 2016 14:04:55
As the saying goes words are cheap.

2.) 18 May 2016 14:05:13
Also actions speak louder than words.

Time will tell Marco.

4.) 18 May 2016 15:25:19
Just watched that DD interview - got to be BR surely?

Getting excited, I'd love it to be him - but we e all been here before.

Away for a wee lie down.

5.) 18 May 2016 18:14:33
Call me cynic but there's season tickets to be sold and we've ate apple of this cart before, I will believe him when I see the new manager on the steps outside Celtic Park .



17 May 2016 14:56:56
breaking rumour on Sly Spurts Celtic holding more talks with Brendan Rodgers today.

1.) 17 May 2016 15:07:25
Did I really write that!



28 Apr 2016 16:46:37
Paul Lambert talking live on TV, Jim Whyte says Paul you had 7 great years at Celtic, Paul replies I had 8 great years there you missed one out. When asked about Celtic job he said all he is concentrating on is the next 2 games for Blackburn and that he wished that Ronny would win the League.

1.) 28 Apr 2016 17:54:44
I would have no problem with lambert coming in wouldn't be my first choice mind you but we can certainly and have done worse IMO.

2.) 28 Apr 2016 18:24:10
Hardly shows any ambition with names like Lambert and McKay being linked with the job. Saying that, most of the names associated with the position are hardly ones to excite the fans. I'm sick of the usual suspects who are linked with us, both players and management. We have the opportunity now to make the right decisions to take celtic forward and develop the team we deserve.

3.) 28 Apr 2016 18:43:21
I would be ok with Lambert getting it myself Dundeebhoy, 33-1 into 7/ 4 with one statement.

4.) 28 Apr 2016 19:06:33
What makes lambert, mckay, Clarke etc stand out? It's obviously not their hugely successful management careers to date, or the exciting football their teams play or the European pedigree. They are no better than the money saver we just wasted 18 months on. Don't give me the celtic connection rubbish either. Just because some of the names played for us doesn't automatically make them good managers. Well be blindfold led to a manager sorry, coach who won't rock the boat, who will do the boards bidding and pretty much do the same as RD. Celtic fans have been short changed and misled for years now. Unless he'll freezes over it will be more of the same.

5.) 28 Apr 2016 19:49:13
Its where we are as a club under DD and PL that's our targets get used to it.

Ed, Been thinking about the new development plans and overall future plans as part of the Celtic Triangle Project, Also talk about the South Stand being replaced is never far away from discussion with rumoured plans already in place. Do you think this is us finally flexing our muscles to totally dominate Scottish football on and off the park and laying down a marker for future income resources so we aren't soley reliable on selling our best assets, or with Peter Lawwell having more and more talks in Europe are we looking at the bigger picture and possible future change in European League structure. Finding this whole issue remarkable as we are starting to look like a massive club on and off the park again and for that i have to credit the Board who i had become demoralised with for showing no vision. We now look like a club with a plan and the future looks fantastic. Any other comments or views welcome.

{Ed007's Note - Regarding the South Stand stadium expansion I'm of the opinion that if/when Celtic announce it there will be concrete plans in place for us to leave the Scottish league - I just don't see why we need to do it just now, Stan apart from improving the look of the stadium as there's no point adding seats if you aren't going to fill them or only going to fill them 6-10 times throughout a season.}

1.) 24 Feb 2017 16:25:23
Thanks for reply Ed, Fair point and agree a higher capacity is certainly not required for SPL games. You would think if there was plans to replace it but have the capacity as it is or extend slightly to around the 65,000 mark it would be to upgrade dressing rooms, restaurants, Hospitality, etc.

. and a bigger Trophy room.

{Ed007's Note - A lot of the stuff currently in the trophy room will probably end up in the museum. I do like your idea about refurbishing the old stand and it's facilities with maybe a minor rise in capacity. If we could refurbish the entire stand I don't see any reason why we couldn't apply to hold CL/EL finals.}

2.) 24 Feb 2017 18:58:11
Ed if we up the capacity is that the only requirement we need to meet to get finals at paradise? Is it to do with how many stars a stadium has? A think hampden is the only five star football stadium in Scotland, am sure it's to do wae Road access or something like that? Am a on the right tracks wae that.

{Ed007's Note - The changing rooms aren't big enough and we need an enclosed area where visiting teams buses stop. Platini said years ago that for security and logistical reasons that he wanted all CL finals to be played in stadia with a minimum capacity of 70,000 but the 2014 final was held in Benfica's Estádio da Luz which doesn't hold 65,000 spectators so it's not a rule as such it was more a recommendation although no CL final has been played in a stadium with a capacity of less than 60,000.
I remember years ago the guides who gave the tours told the story that the only reason we never received the old UEFA 5* rating (that doesn't exist any longer, it's called UEFA Elite Stadiums) was because of the changing rooms size problem but because of the chances of the SFA sanctioning a bid over Hampden were so slim it wasn't financially feasible to take the gamble.}

3.) 24 Feb 2017 19:52:56
So if Celtic were to get elite stadium status they would still need the sfa to approve our request for a final? I thought it would be down to Celtic and uefa to decide.

{Ed007's Note - The Club would need the SFA to put the application forward. It's the same everywhere, it's the FA's that apply with a nominated stadium to the UEFA Executive Committee who make the decision. Remember it's the SFA that are members of UEFA, not Celtic, for example European prize money etc is sent to the FA to be distributed to the clubs.
The SFA did apply for Hampden to be considered for the 2019 EL Final but that's going to Azerbaijan Baku’s 68,700-capacity Olympic Stadium or Atletico’s new stadium, the Wanda Metropolitano, which will hold 67,000 when it opens this summer.}

4.) 24 Feb 2017 23:49:18
I knew a previous chief exec of celtic who told me that there are plans drawn up and good to go for rebuilding the south stand. At that time he said it would only happen if we got into the English Premiership so don't imagine much has changed now.

5.) 25 Feb 2017 09:22:47
That's right Marty, worked there years ago (Barnes Time) and the talk then was the dressing rooms etc moving to the corner under the stand (south / west stands) and the drawings etc are all in place.

6.) 25 Feb 2017 09:01:22
Ed there is every chance the sfa would back us now especially since all the stuff about the sfact not going to use hampden anymore so it could be either us or Murray field for international matches.

{Ed007's Note - They can't nominate us now, the stadium doesn't meet the requirements.}



01 Feb 2017 22:02:06
Very professional performance. Boyata solid again and deserving of his man of the match award, Bitton i thought made some fantastic tackles and played some lovely balls throughout the 90. Tierney quite simply the best leftback in the UK at the moment (What must he be worth!? ) . Gordon although didn't have anything to do tonight was good with the ball at his feet. All in all everyone played well including the guys that came on. HH

1.) 01 Feb 2017 22:40:45
Said it at the weekend but Henderson always impresses me . His fifteen minute run out tonight, he showed again good vision, lovely weight of pass. And created a good few chances for the team . Hope he gets a fair chance now for the rest of the season, but again another good solid performance. We just look so comfortable against everyone in the league. I just hope the management and certain players don't get too bored with the league as I look forward us getting better over the next couple of seasons

2.) 01 Feb 2017 22:57:12
Agreed Quinn he had some nice touches, some great build up play between himself and Roberts. I thought he might go out on loan but glad he is still with us Rodgers can take him to the next level. HH



31 Jan 2017 17:04:04
With the team doing so well it wouldn't bother me if no one was signed before the deadline, If we have targets and they are not available it's better we try again in the summer rather than make the mistakes of previous windows by wasting cash on squad players.

Qualifiers to deal with but we have a team more than capable of getting through them we are a different beast to what we were in July. Would have liked to have seen 3 or 4 leave but there is time yet. If the window closes and no more in let's enjoy what we are seeing at the moment and also look forward to seeing what Eboue brings to the team. Plenty to be positive about the quicker this window closes the better.

1.) 31 Jan 2017 19:13:23
i thought warburton was talking about the barcelona squad instead of the sevco squad the way he was going on about them on scotland today earlier lol.

2.) 31 Jan 2017 19:58:07
Did ye all hear BR talking about LG? Seems he has an issue with the wee mans work ethic when not top dog and not playing. The other guys seem to apply themselves in training whether playing or not so that they're ready to step back into the team when opportunity arises.

Looks like Leigh needs to sort this one out in his own head which I hope he does as he still has much to offer at Celtic Park as a 40 goal a season striker. Nae use though if he's as (un) fit as me! As BR said-talents not enough. What an example Henrik was of both! 🍀



25 Jan 2017 14:14:56
Hi Ed, Hope you are well.

Been checking on Saidy Janko's progress (or lack of it) since going to Barnsley on loan. Pretty grim reading. Since joining on July 1st Barnsley have played 7 pre season games followed by 30 League games. He has not started one game. He has been in their squad 7 times.

v Wolves. came on 82 minute and scored on the 85th minute.

v Reading. came on 68th minute.

v Wigan. Came on 91st minute.

v Nottm Forest. came on 74th minute.

v Birmingham. came on 89th minute.

v Sheff Wed. came on 79th minute.

So in total he has played 58 minutes of football since moving. I don't see what benefit this loan has been to himself, us, or Barnsley. Has he been injured? If he hasn't it makes me think the club is correct to send our youths out to Morton, Kilmarnock, Aberdeen, Walsall etc where they will atleast get game time. Maybe Janko was sent to Barnsley in the hope the would buy him rather than help his development. Both now look unlikey going by these stats.

{Ed007's Note - That doesn't make for very good reading at all. I'll take a guess that he will be freed or sold for a nominal fee in the summer.}

1.) 25 Jan 2017 14:49:31
There is always a reason players don't get a game in this case it looks like the players attitude is at fault, let go by Man U and now us he needs to knuckle down or he become just another statistic

2.) 25 Jan 2017 17:03:33
Really goes to show how bad RDs signings were: Janko Ciftci blackett boyata scepovic Allan and others who were all simply not good enough.

3.) 25 Jan 2017 19:26:23

I wasn't an RD fan but I very much doubt those were HIS signing. Remember who called the shots at that time.

Sick to my stomach watching that.

When you realise the level of cheating and financial doping that went on you wonder how we ever stood a chance.

2.) 19 Jan 2017 21:37:06
Wow, what an eye opener watching that. The older I get, the worse my feelings towards that mob become. Bunch of "entitled" tossers who would do anything to win, tread on anyone who dared get in their way. And it all boils down to some good old fashioned cheating with some bigotry thrown in for good measure. And when the rubbish hits the fan, they scarper with as much coin as they can carry. All of them, even down to the chunky one on gardening leave. God bless Fergus, Mr Keane et all, true fans with morals

Would be pretty amusing if we sent out 2 or 3 fringe players to Aberdeen. the Sevconians would be raging. No one is a threat to us winning the league so why not send some players there for some well needed game time plus try prevent that cretins from finishing 2nd.

If the Club wants to develop him into a CB then it's probably the best move for him at the moment as he's going to spend the best part of 90 mins defending with that lot.

It's a shame Leicester didn't sell Vardy and Mahrez in the summer when their value was at its highest. They could have rebuilt their squad with the money. I don't watch Leicester or the EPL enough to know if these players downed tools after signing lucrative contracts but it certainly looks like they have let CR down.

As for Rodgers, Honestly don't think he would leave Celtic for a top 6 Club in England at the moment never mind a bottom 6 one.

A bit before my time Ed I'd have been watching Dungeons and Dragons or Centurions. Totally agree with what you are saying hope the name has a touch of class to it, something historical.

{Ed007's Note - Dungeons and Dragons is THE best cartoon ever made from back in those days, closely followed by Dogtanian. Only The Simpsons and Family Guy are better.}
