ED007 can I ask if you have heard anything of Celtic bringing in another centre forward, if as expected, Dembele moves on after CL qualifiers.
I hope we already have players lined up, because if Moussa goes near end of window, there will be no time to scout and bring in anyone else.


{Ed007's Note - I don't expect Dembele to leave, Tim but there will be a plan in place if the worst happens. Today we've been linked with Montenegrin striker Luka Dordevic, who is set to leave Zenit St Petersburg on a free transfer who could be an ideal 3rd choice striker.

1.) 13 Jul 2017 15:06:36
Also reading that Dordevic had his contract terminated by mutual agreement though. The reason being to not sit on a bench.

2.) 13 Jul 2017 14:53:54
Do you think we would knock back the type of offers that would come in for him. I mean i can see 20m to 25m but not the upper end quotes of 40m. But 20m for me id rather keep him.

{Ed007's Note - So you think the Club will force him out the door just because someone matched the asking price? If that was the case he would have left in January to join Chelsea. The Club, the player and his agent all know what needs to be done for a transfer to anyone to happen and if all parties aren't happy then Dembele is more than happy to stay here - all the lad wants is to play football.
If Marseille come up with the asking price I think they would be happy to meet Dembele's demands regarding game time, he would get a hefty pay rise too and the chance to play in his home country for one of the top teams. Marseille were very close to signing Dembele last summer but wouldn't guarantee him game time, Celtic did and he joined us.}

3.) 13 Jul 2017 16:17:27
Don't think signing a striker who is 23 and hasn't even scored 20 career goals is the way to go. If we need a sh*t striker who can't score goals then we may as well just keep ciftci.

Personally I would just promote one of the youth players to 3rd choice striker.



21 Jun 2017 14:58:11
Guys don't get your hopes up about Tammy Abraham coming to Celtic, papers full of it, but he is in talks with Swansea today.


1.) 21 Jun 2017 16:14:55
Dont want him tbh tim, if its a loan, cracking player but no chance of signing him permanently, rather the dosh went elsewhere.

2.) 21 Jun 2017 18:38:53
He signed with Swansea.



17 Jun 2017 16:22:17
ED007 my pal at Celtic Pools says Roberts has been told by Man City that he is not in their plans, but have agreed for him to return for pre season to try and impress Guardiola, Celtic have apparently pulled out of bidding race, but have asked City to keep them informed, City if they sell, want £8-£10m plus buy back clause, is this what you have heard?
Cannot see Lawwell bidding anywhere near that amount, even though Paddy is worth it.


1.) 17 Jun 2017 19:49:38
If they are after 8 million why not offer a structured payment that suits us? 4 million this summer and 4 million next summer? Better than them sending him out on loan and picking up a small loan fee. I appreciate that all deals aren't exact money up front but we will get that back plus more after a season or 2.

2.) 17 Jun 2017 23:46:10
Can someone explain, how we could afford Paddy Roberts wages, he can get a lot more money playing down south, it's a pipedream he is coming here, unless he is one of the people who value quality of life over monetary gain, not personally knowing the guy, i have no idea, I have no time for the Beckham's and Rooney's of this world, who with the money they 'earn', could buy equipment for their local hospitals, but choose instead to fill garages with fancy cars or throw it away on roulette wheels, as someone once said 'somethings going to change'

3.) 18 Jun 2017 00:33:04
My favourite of all time group said it Aindoh. the stranglers.

4.) 18 Jun 2017 12:12:41
Can we all be a bit sensible here.
Structured payments? We wouldn't bid £8-10m for Roberts?

Paddy would be getting a wage increase at Parkhead, with full knowledge that a move the following season would materialise.
It's a win/ win for him.
Guaranteed he signs after we qualify.

5.) 18 Jun 2017 16:06:29
jeezo foxi you had me going there lol.

6.) 18 Jun 2017 17:13:30
Aindoh I agree with your sentiments if I was ever in a fortunate position to have all those millions ad help various charities and kids organisations but look at 1 of our own shareholders he buys an island for £80mill and we don't pass judgment think of the good that could do it's not the players faults clubs are willing to pay these kinds of salaries it's the fans willing to pay there subscriptions to sky no sky no silly wages.

7.) 19 Jun 2017 15:59:18
One thing is sure there are a hell of a lot more Scottish people paying Wee fortunes to watch English EPL rubbish, than English paying to watch Scottish. Ireland full of Sky EPL experts.

8.) 19 Jun 2017 22:09:26
pogoing, i put ed as in punk rock dancing.



30 May 2017 08:02:34
ED001 or ED002 can you give us any more information on Moussa Dembele, do you think he will move to Chelsea or rumours I heard that AC Milan are interested, will he still be a Celtic player come end of August.


{Ed001's Note - he is still looking for assurances over playing time, which Chelsea will not give him, so I very much doubt he will end up there. It would require him to compromise.

Both Milan clubs have shown interest, but both need to sell for FFP reasons, before they can spend. Less so AC Milan, who would also be more willing to give playing time assurances. However he is not first choice for them.}

1.) 30 May 2017 08:08:43
Sorry knocked submit before I was finished.

There is also interest from some other clubs in the English Prem. Arsenal might be one to watch, depending on who is in charge.

2.) 30 May 2017 09:51:52
He seem squite content to sit tight for another season if the right move doesn't come along. I'd be delighted to keep him for one more year.

3.) 30 May 2017 10:04:57
Any idea Ed if that clause is in his celtic contract (must play ) or is it just assurances the boy wants from other clubs?

{Ed001's Note - it is just what he wants to move to another club. Celtic gives him a platform to play and develop, he doesn't want to just throw that away for the chance to earn a big signing fee and wage.}

4.) 30 May 2017 10:11:43
Fair play to the boy then, refreshing to see a player put his career first than chase the dosh, rare in this day and age.

{Ed001's Note - exactly. Putting his career ahead of his fortune.}

5.) 30 May 2017 14:00:03
Hi EDs have use heard any news on the Chelsea young boy we were linked with.

{Ed001's Note - no sorry nothing.}

6.) 30 May 2017 14:07:34
Sky sports are reporting he is going to Liverpool.

7.) 31 May 2017 18:38:41
Dembele won't be going anywhere, unless Brendan Rodgers tells him he is no longer regarded as first choice striker .
That's unlikely to happen.



22 May 2017 17:57:11
Looks like we have missed out on Onyeroku, he is in talks with Arsenal.
To be honest, I think we dodged a bullet there, he sounds the type to be disruptive in the dressing room.


{Ed007's Note - I find that a bit strange as any move to the EPL would mean he will need to be loaned out as he won't qualify for a work permit. And remember it's SLY reporting it.....

Ed002 - Henry Onyekuru has had a number of options presented to him and has held discussions with several sides with the permission of Eupen. It looked like his options would be limited to Celtic or mainland European clubs such as Club Brugge, Anderlecht and Borussia Monchengladbach as a move to England with any of the interested sides (Everton, Southampton or West Ham) would mean that he would need to be sent out on loan. That has not deterred offers but without paying significantly more than the asking price and making an outrageous wage offer a move to England is less likely. Anderlecht have negotiated what will be an acceptable deal but there is no agreement at this time.}

Credit where credit is due, there was some great defending at the end as the stewards heroically defended the goal posts from wee Griffiths.




23 Sep 2017 08:25:43
@peterbhoy and others wanting value bets
Celtic -1 6/ 4
Celtic -2 4/ 1
Celtic -3 9/ 1
Celtic -4 25/ 1
But bets of day are a penalty 2/ 1 and ordering off 13/ 8
To all our fans going to game today STAY SAFE.


1.) 23 Sep 2017 08:46:05
Tim have a look at Architecture No 10 in the 2 15 newbury. I got some good words about it being ready to win. I just checked it is 10/ 1 with hills.

2.) 23 Sep 2017 10:29:49
Cheers Malika will have a wee nibble
I have 3 "topical" horses at Newbury
Fenaan 1.15 7/ 1 (maybe replace one of the "A's with an "I")
Invincible Army 2.50 11/ 4
Judicial 4.00 9/ 1 (some bookies going 5 places e/ w)



22 Sep 2017 19:15:05
As a punter I was looking forward to tomorrow both with my horses and football bets. What happens? my two big tips for Ayr are down the plug hole, literally as Ayr flooded.
Then I was going to have a big punt on Alves getting sent off, now he is not playing either. Grrrr
But undeterred my other "old firm" bets (ha ha THAT got you all going lol) yes of course I KNOW there is no "old firm" anymore despite sly sports desperately saying it every 5 minutes.
A penalty is only 2/ 1
ordering off even slimmer 13/ 8
Celtic 7/ 10
Griffiths anytime goal 11/ 10
Dembele 2/ 1
Sinclair 5/ 2
With no Bruno I fancy Morelos yellow 2/ 1 and Miller 2/ 1
I anticipate lots of cards tomorrow and I also expect our impartial man in black to issue cards to Brown, Simonovic and Griffiths to "even" things up and if he can get away with it I expect the bold ref to give Sevco a penalty.


1.) 22 Sep 2017 20:01:13
In current form Timalloy James Forrest has to be the best bet of the day @ as big as 8s in places that gives you 2.67 in a place mate better value than LG and MD (first five goals)

2.) 22 Sep 2017 23:10:31
Tim / Jamie what about odds for Celtic -2 or even -3 . & poss 2 up in within 20 mins: a young defender in there must be a good chance of a pen/ red card Just my gut feeling on this, we will go at them from the get go.

3.) 22 Sep 2017 23:12:42
6-0 will do me. Not being greedy by adding LG as first scorer😂. A fool and his money eh.



20 Sep 2017 12:36:38
One of my Celtic buddies emailed a copy of a trashy newspaper and it's headline "Celtic's euro foes in Turmoil" he was ecstatic and wanted me to be ecstatic too as, in his eyes, the Anderlecht game is now a "bye" a "certain" 3 points.
But I am too long in the tooth to believe all this nonsense, no Anderlecht and their caretaker boss will give us a difficult game next Wednesday, so I urge all Celtic fans not to get too over confident about our CL chances, after all it IS Celtic we are talking about and we never do anything easy in europe. Give the papers a miss.


1.) 20 Sep 2017 12:58:33
Team tonight Gordon Lustig Boyata jozo Tierney Ntcham Armstrong Forrest Rogic Hayes Dembele.

2.) 20 Sep 2017 13:32:39
I would play the following tonight:


Gamboa Boyata Biton Miller

McGregor Armstrong

Hayes Roberts Benyou


3.) 20 Sep 2017 13:52:37
I'd give Dorus a game. He looked good in pre season.

4.) 20 Sep 2017 15:07:48




Doutb it tho! Think Hayes could start he played his best game so far at the weekend. Also it would be hard to drop Forrest after scoring 2 unless he has been told he is starting at Ibrox. Jozo could be rested as well and have Bitton at CB.

5.) 20 Sep 2017 16:12:29
Am I right in thinking that most teams get a boost when the dump a manager, statistically speaking? Or is that something that takes effect on a new appointment? They'll be tough, for sure.

6.) 20 Sep 2017 18:06:38
Talking down our opponents so if we fail to do a job over in Amderlecht it is a opportunity to slag Rogers and Celtic.

7.) 20 Sep 2017 20:52:04
Bravetart, If we don't do a job over there with the form they're in then we deserve every bit of criticism we get.

8.) 20 Sep 2017 22:02:52

we should be taking points from Anderlecht - not PSG, Not Munich - but we should be good enough for Anderlecht - or we have no one to blame but ourselves.

Its nothing to do with them and their managerial situation, by now, with the team and manager we have, we should at least get a draw there, a win here and go thru to Europa (at least)



19 Sep 2017 10:57:58
Just our blooming luck.
Reports in France that Neymar and Cavani had to be kept apart in the dressing room after Lyon game, two big egos clashing.
How come they could not have had their fight BEFORE meeting us groan.


1.) 19 Sep 2017 11:33:59
One big ego and that's neymar.

2.) 19 Sep 2017 13:58:03
Is ego code for a***hole on here?

3.) 19 Sep 2017 16:56:19
Admire the skills of him but he's just a turnip imo, definitely got the billy big bollox syndrome.

4.) 19 Sep 2017 20:14:06
I know its really not our concern but PSG will have a lot to think about with Neynar in their ranks.
He sees himself as the BIG ticket and expects respect instead of earning it.

The guys is a top player but he has very little class on the field.

ED007 I am sure I read that Rodgers said that because Jozo had not played in over 3 weeks he might have to give him some game time tonight, even on a plastic pitch.


{Ed007's Note - That would be a stupid risk to take before Tuesday's game. If he's thinking along those lines it'll be Simunovic and possibly Boyata starting.}

ED001/ ED007 is it true that if this goes ahead we have option to buy the lad for £10m, seems a big price for Celtic to even think about offering.


{Ed007's Note - People are speculating that the fee would be 10 million Euros but really nobody knows for sure yet if there is an option to buy or how much it will be. It would make sense though as if the fans take to him it would ease their pain - and ire - when Dembele leaves next summer.}

We will need to take a lead over there. They, like Rosenburg, are well into their season so will be match fit and sharp.
Read they put in a new pitch similar to the Norwegians also so that should be a plus. Also on the plus side, they struggled against Legia in both ties, so hopefully Celtic can take at least a 2 goal lead over there.

Yes for some reason media very optimistic on a new club victory, even my goldfish memory ex bears are getting excited I have a biggish bet with them and the suit for Saturday.
But almost guaranteed bet of the game is a penalty and an ordering off, you heard it hear first.

@Rich T it took me a minute to "digest" what you said, you "bandit" I think a "taxi" for you is in order. You do take the "biscuit" some time.
The CL games take their toll mentally and physically and we have a heavy programme coming up, so the whole squad must be used, luckily we have Dembele and Boyata ready for a run out with young McGregor also. I anticipate maybe 4 or 5 personnel changes today with Eduard also getting more game time maybe in second half.
