is Dembele transfer confirmed?
I have seen all the rumours etc. but the only thing I concrete is Lyon are interested.


1.) 30 Aug 2018 10:27:11
Not done yet but if Lyon meet our valuation he will be off.

2.) 30 Aug 2018 10:58:41
What an absolute shambles, has to be the worst transfer window ever. Every time we are linked with someone it gets shot down straight away. Massive 4 days ahead of us.

3.) 30 Aug 2018 11:17:05
Lawwell will be happy, will fund his pointless hotel whilst we will probably get a 200k signing to replace him if we are lucky. Instead of the Four Seasons Hotel we will have the Two Seasons Hotel! Only took two Dembele seasons to find it.

4.) 30 Aug 2018 11:53:09
Can you explain why a hotel would be pointless marquez?

5.) 30 Aug 2018 12:05:09
Would we not make more money kev if we invested money on decent players that could get us into the champs lge where we would reap the financial benenfits instead of trying to make money off a hotel?

6.) 30 Aug 2018 12:14:16
Yes we would the Bhoy. We’ve got no need for a hotel when our fans start to dwindle because our manager has left and out players are nonsense.

7.) 30 Aug 2018 12:17:05
OK pointless might be a bit strong but not a priority at the moment in my opinion. Just raging about the current transfer window!

8.) 30 Aug 2018 12:31:16
I’m with you Marquez a B&B will do. Get the players first and get these huns skelped on Sunday.

9.) 30 Aug 2018 13:12:01
The hotel will be another revenue stream and will help the club to attract major events to CP etc. The more off-field revenue we can generate the better because it means we won't be so dependent on the CL group money which is becoming increasingly harder to get and the blow won't be as hard as it currently is, especially if we get a better TV deal as well. 100% we should have strengthened this summer and made sure of CL qualification but that should be independent of the hotel/ museum money and doesn't make those a bad idea.

10.) 30 Aug 2018 13:27:30
Exactly kev. The hotel should be independent. Nowt to do with the team. We're not worried about the hotel at the moment, in case you hadn't noticed our team is a feckin shambles. That's what people are pissed off about.




20 Aug 2018 08:02:47
Anyone heard this?
My cousin (usually spot-on) has just sent me a message to say that Celtic have had a 7.8 Million Euros bid accepted by Wolfsburg for defender Jeffrey Bruma. Currently discussing personal terms.
I know Crystal Palace were interested at beginning of the month but the English transfer window is now closed.


1.) 20 Aug 2018 09:30:45
TT, unless your cousin has a very specific knowledge from a very reliable source (mate down the pubs next door neighbours milkman's barber who is married to a woman who once got a bus that went past Kerrydale Street doesn't qualify) then please treat this rumour as being 100% pish. End of. HH.

2.) 20 Aug 2018 09:55:38
Was reading that BR is looking at a couple of loan signings from Man City, a CB and a Brazilian MF. If the Bruma rumour is true then that would be a great signing.

3.) 20 Aug 2018 12:18:14
I agree teflon.

4.) 20 Aug 2018 12:41:22
I seen that one of the ed's on the Liverpool page mentioned that we are closing in on the signing Pedro Chirivella.

5.) 20 Aug 2018 13:11:03
BobTheCat, here’s an article from The German papers a few days ago that pours water on your assertion that the article is “100% pish”


unless you have a very reliable source (mate down the pubs next door neighbours milkman's barber who is married to a woman who once got a bus that went past Kerrydale Street doesn't qualify) then please wind your neck in.

6.) 20 Aug 2018 13:34:11
Fraz you couldn't translate that for me pal haven't a clue what's been written.

7.) 20 Aug 2018 14:04:25
FRAZ, if you translate it with Google here is the bottom line of the story so it is indeed pish lol

"Jeffrey Bruma does not want to leave Wolfsburg because he thinks he will get a chance"



8.) 20 Aug 2018 20:28:31
That German news paper that's written in Turkish.

9.) 20 Aug 2018 21:21:01
It’s all Dutch to me.

10.) 20 Aug 2018 21:26:55
Big Turkish population/ contingent in Germany so maybe not so?

11.) 20 Aug 2018 23:25:47
You may be right, im sure Fenerbache is somewhere in Berlin 🙄.



25 Jan 2018 10:21:32
my mate sent me a txt that BR has a press conference scheduled at 1.30. Anyone else heard of this? I can't find anything on it.


1.) 25 Jan 2018 10:56:48
It was reported on sky what's unusual about that.

2.) 25 Jan 2018 11:03:27
I was out only about Saturday's game with Hibs.



23 Jan 2018 14:47:55
my mate just told me that word on the street is Stoke, Everton and Palce are all bidding for Mousa D. Any truth in this?


1.) 23 Jan 2018 15:08:03
Hearing much the same here too, what will be will be!

2.) 23 Jan 2018 15:55:51
if he has to leave then having a few clubs seeking him is only good news for us. It has to be a minimum of £20m and a 10-15% sell on.

Anything less is bollocks.

3.) 23 Jan 2018 17:03:03
If any of them offer 15 mil then take it, his head is up his arse now so say thanks and ship him out, he his no good for us now. We have Griff who can put the ball in the nett just as regularly as MD, the only difference is LG wants to be here, and after a 40 goal season had every right to be tetchy when left on the bench.
None of the big boys in Europe have even looked at MD this season so 15/ 20 is a wonderful price.
Sell on % is difficult, but at least we have a good commercial guy in Lawell who will work his chops off to secure a deal, whatever you might say about him regarding spending makes no difference as he certainly knows about earning money for CFC.

4.) 23 Jan 2018 17:25:20
Why sell him when he is out of form? Are we saying he won't regain it? I don accept that. He will regain his form and his price will rise. Selling him now at the stage he is playing, is like trying to sell your house before you put the roof on.

If we get £20m plus the 15% maybe. If he goes and starts scoring for fun then he will be sold on for double that in the summer.

We need to stop acting like spivs and realise his stock has fallen and if we wait we can get a lot more in the summer.

We have no need to panic, we can afford to keep him. He might want to go, but if it doesn't suit us, ten sorry but no. if he wanted a better team to come in the he is to blame for that. Giving him the second half of the season to attract the bigger clubs will be achieved by playing to his potential. If he does that he gets the move he really wants and we get a minimum of £30m and a sell on.

5.) 23 Jan 2018 17:38:18
Some of the noises from our management team make it sound like now might be the time to cash in. We'll need a replacement other than Griffiths if we want to have any joy in Europe.

6.) 23 Jan 2018 17:56:17
If we are going to sell the most important part of the deal is the sell on percentage in my opinion if he goes down south and hits good form and or gets a call up to the French team his price Will skyrocket eg van dyke so we should push for the highest percentage we can get.

7.) 23 Jan 2018 18:31:34
We don't really need the cash although am not niave enough to know if daft offer comes in they'll take it but there might be more money to be had at the end of the season if he finds a bit of form.



28 Oct 2017 18:56:16
Oh please stop it. My sides cannot take anymore.
Pedro gone and now Fat Sally says he has not ruled out a return.

Unbelievable the abuse you get for pointing out the stupidity of some supporter's actions. I am on a few Celtic pages on FB.
I have followed Celtic since the late 1950's (first game was against Third Lanark so you do the maths lol)
The destruction of seats, the coin throwing, the pyrotechnics and the crowd rush are all deemed as acceptable.
When I tried to point out that the authorities and media have always had a bias against us and that all we are doing is giving them an excuse with evidence to criticise and punish us the intelligent and obviously well thought-out response was.
"F**ck them, Up the ra, cheap fu**ing paper seats anyway, Boyd's a c*nt who deserves worse, SFA can get tae f*ck. " Of course, the usual, "They get away with it so why should we not do it? " was also used.
It hurts and saddens me to see these people still don't understand that the perfect way to really upset the authorities etc. is by winning trophies and not giving them any excuses to attack our supporters. (long rant but at least I get intelligent banter on here H. H.


1.) 19 Feb 2019 09:25:39
Well said TinyTim. No place at our club for people who have no respect for its history and foundations. That's what sets us apart from others.

2.) 19 Feb 2019 09:32:04
Neds will be neds Tim.

3.) 19 Feb 2019 09:48:54
Football fans are a different breed nowadays Tim. Not just alcohol, they are high on drugs as well. I drive fans to away matches and find all sort of drugs and substances stuffed down the seats. You always get some bams on an away trips, they normally sit at the back throwing stuff and destroying seats.

4.) 19 Feb 2019 11:59:40
Well said Tim, it's disgraceful conduct so called Celtic fans, i'm sure they apply such standards in all parts of their lives.

That's one thing I can say for the Ozzies here, very little trouble at the sporting grounds and you can drink a coldie watching the game, very pleasant indeed.

5.) 19 Feb 2019 13:41:02
Downunderbhoy, Very little trouble at football in Scotland either, which maybe explains why there is so much condemnation of someone tossing a coin, even at a low life like Boyd . We don't know whether seats were broken maliciously but I am sure Celtic football club will pay for repair or replacement .
We need extra care that we are not associated with this type of behaviour .
Talking about fan behaviour, I would like to mention again, the relatively small number of loud - mouths who roar abuse at individual Celtic players . That loud roar is bound to have detrimental effect on player at the receipt of abuse . It can also effect the nervous anticipation in crowd and turn a happy atmosphere into an angry one and effect other fans and can lead to more than words thrown.

6.) 19 Feb 2019 16:51:47
Acting like clowns, aye. However what is up with pyrotechnics at football?

7.) 19 Feb 2019 19:37:32
Very good point, OMC, about shouting abuse at our own players. On a good night, the fans can be worth an extra goal. On a bad night, they can probably prevent us from scoring.



15 Feb 2019 08:38:13
They have a player at £40 million.
If only they brought in a system where clubs had to be run on the revenue they generate and not on what personal funds billionaires pump into their "hobby" clubs.
Of course we would need appropriate punishments to deter big clubs from breaking the rules.
It would help make it a wee bit more of an even playing field.
We could call it something like Financial Fair Play or. oh wait!


1.) 15 Feb 2019 09:53:00
It shows where we are when they've got a sub that cost 40 mill and we're expected to compete it's not a level playing field.

{Ed001's Note - you have how much in the bank? How much has been taken out in dividends? You could easily spend that kind of money if you didn't take so many loans that cost large sums for little return. Valencia do not have much more money than Celtic, but they just put all their income into building a football team, Celtic spend most of theirs on building fortunes for those with shares.}

2.) 15 Feb 2019 10:18:19
We had a £20m player with Dembele (who will go for more if and when the time comes) and apparently a £75m player in VVD?
I appreciate what you are saying and European football is full of clubs that can spend outwith their means because of billionaire owners and corporations that use the clubs as a money pit.
Player valuations and transfer fees have gone crazy and although there are several 'world class' players possibly worth the money, there are far too many over-rated and vastly overpriced good ones.

In the past we have always come up against far richer and better teams in Europe, but made Celtic Park a fortress, with sheer effort, passion - plus what skill, flair and craft we had at the club at that particular time - and it worked.
These days we have become a soft-touch even at home because of a fear and nervousness that comes from a lack of confidence and an awareness of our own glaring deficiencies in key positions.
The defense was make-shift to say the least, with a player who doesn't want to be here, a left back past his best and a loanee RB trying his best to fit into a new team.
The absence of KT and Benkovic (another loan) was a huge loss and with the team playing without a proper front-man/ striker we were unable to hold-up/ keep the ball the way every other team can do.
These personnel and tactical gaps have been an issue for a wee while now and until the manager addresses this and strengthens the spine of the team with the quality we need, it will continue.
As will the defeats if he never learns from them.
At present, I have all but written off Europe in the comfort of our domestic displays and continued success, but I would like us to use the summer window to bring in permanent solutions?

3.) 15 Feb 2019 10:18:44
Way out our depth last night. Valencia are a bang average European team but on another level compared to us. We were back to being a mess at the back, couldn't pass to a green and white jersey and no creativity. Maybe Rodgers has taken this as far as he can in europe, his tactics and team selection brought into question again! Surely Hayes would be better at LB than Izzy.

4.) 15 Feb 2019 10:42:04
A saw that ed but we don't have the revenue or income to sustain a spending spree on a par with those teams the money the Spanish teams generate is far greater we have 38 mill cash in the bank they had a 40 mill player on the bench plus an array of talent never mind 3 star players at home.

{Ed001's Note - but you do have the revenue and income to sustain spending on the same level as Valencia. While they are a huge club in Spain, they have not managed their club as financially soundly as Celtic have. You have had years of money going outside of football, to directors and shareholders, that should have been invested in the team. That is why you are behind and will continue to fall further behind until that changes. You are in the same situation as Newcastle. There the owner takes money out and then claims that the club can't afford to sustain more spending. Both of you could quite easily invest more if less was disappearing into people's pockets!}

5.) 15 Feb 2019 12:20:10
Are you saying the dividends have been very excessive Ed?

{Ed001's Note - not really, just saying you can't compete while money is going out of the club. You can compete as a self-financing club, but that requires all the money to be re-invested.}



15 Feb 2019 08:34:50
Tippy tappy football is nice when you are in command. It also helps if you pass the ball to your own player and not give it to an opposing player. However, there is also a time for blootering the ball clear and we failed there as well too many times.
For me, only Sinclair, Forest and Bain could get a pass mark on last night's performance. Bain could not be faulted for the goals but Emilio is a yard too slow at this level and both goals where partially due to him being unable to keep up with the attacker who had a free run at the ball.
As for the elbow job - we were fortunate to finish game with 11 players as WE would have been screaming for a red card.
That said, Forest definitely denied at least one penalty.
Better team won on the night and the difference in quality showed imo.


1.) 15 Feb 2019 10:21:35
McGregor was very good, but had to fall back more to cover Broony, who was making a lot of mistakes and being caught out too often.
Broony has been immense since the January break, but I think he burned himself out after a very busy and buzzing start and found the quality and pace of a better opponent a wee bit to much.

Both goals came from his lack of pace in keeping up with the attacker.

Rafa would be my choice and I have no doubt he would consider it having seen BR do so well.
Also, that eejit he works with just now would be an incentive to get out. That said, I think BR will need a good offer and a decent team in EPL before leaving us.
