Noticed Arzani didn't wasn't in reserve squad that played QOS last night. Could we perhaps see him in the squad tomorrow?


1.) 30 Oct 2018 16:29:53
That would be a refreshing development. We fans like to see new talented blood running out in the famous Hoops. He’s highly rated in Australia and Man City didn't buy him for nothing. (He’s only 19) .

I’d like the club to start signing targets on pre contracts. So we know who we’re getting in January and the summer.

It shows a proactive mindset and delivers upbeat news for fans in the cold winter months. It beats emergency cash splashing in hours before windows close. No more of that thanks!

2.) 30 Oct 2018 16:42:06
Arzani can step into left wing, right wing and attacking midfield.

He can give a break for Sinclair, McGregor, Rogic, Christie or Forrest after Leipzig and cup semi exertions.

3.) 30 Oct 2018 17:15:41
Hopefully we can see the boy playing and see if he is good enough. I think he will be, but, if Rogers won’t okay him send him back so he can gain what he needs most, game time. It’s not the boys fault it was Lawwell who brought him.

4.) 30 Oct 2018 19:04:42
I don’t think we know who brought him. I posited speculation and a “what if” a week or so ago.

Regardless of his route into the club, if he’s good enough he should play. In my book after 4 months of reserves, he deserves a showing or two or three.

Kouassi and Ntcham should be benched for a bit. Mulumbu is on a jury’s out naughty step, it appears.

It’s going to be a young fast attacking midfield if he partners Christie.

5.) 30 Oct 2018 19:22:52
He's a 19yr old boy from another country. His time will come if he's good enough. Brendans strong point is player development he knows what he's doing. Took Tam Rogic a while to get going.

6.) 30 Oct 2018 19:35:22
I wouldn’t rest Sinclair
He’s had plenty time on the bench of late and is just staring to spark again.
See what the young lad can do in the centre - pull the strings and give Rogic a rest for the weekend.

7.) 30 Oct 2018 20:47:27
The last think sinky needs is a rest he needs a run of games now.

8.) 30 Oct 2018 21:18:41
Island Celtic

If you were in charge of Celtic. You would throw the boy into Dundee away on a cold Wednesday night to see what he can do.

Thank God your not in charge.

9.) 30 Oct 2018 21:49:14
Would you try him against hearts at the weekend then?

What’s playing at Dundee in the cold got to do with it?

Maybe you sneak over at bedtime and tuck him in?

Give him a start at the worst team in the league - makes more sense to me, but I’ll bow down to your knowledge there. Aye.

10.) 31 Oct 2018 00:38:59
Speaking as a bhoy who now lives in Australia, young Arzani will find our winters very hard to cope with, Aussies hate the cold, but Rogic has Aclimatised. I think he will be a good option for us.

11.) 31 Oct 2018 08:03:04
Island Celtic

Thanks for admitting my superior knowledge. Joking aside can't recall us ever going to Dens park and not having a hard game. They fight for every ball. Parkhead when we are winning last 20minutes is when I would introduce him.

It's pointless because the young yin won't start. He told me last night while I was tucking him in.

12.) 31 Oct 2018 08:26:58
Everyone goes on about this lad being brought in without BR knowing about it. Yet the lad said on the day he agreed to join us that he was desperate to come here after speaking to BR on the phone for over an hour.

13.) 31 Oct 2018 10:55:41
Nakasjockstrap, that could have been PL on the phone putting on a soft Irish brogue voice.

He is quite clever. He might even hire a guy with the same voice.

Once you become all powerful and control all people and all the money and all the SFA, you do crazy daft things for the fun of it.

Then again, he could be a BR target. But that’s just boring.

14.) 31 Oct 2018 12:07:58
Rodgers said mulumbu is injured. He said he back training this week.

15.) 31 Oct 2018 19:23:29
Happy Hoppy

Your response cheered me right up today!
Good to see our boy is on the bench though.

Maybe get a glimpse of him later.



30 Aug 2018 14:49:36
Leicester manager has just announced that Benkovic will likely go out on loan.

I'd take anyone of quality atm for the back loan deal or not. So hoping we hear something soon.


1.) 30 Aug 2018 14:54:11
Hopefully he comes to us.



08 Jul 2017 19:55:10
Apparently Ntcham is having a medical now. There was a picture posted of him standing in the centre circle of Parkhead earlier. Just shows you BR comes out with the power and pace statement on a player that he was specifically looking at and the papers link us with every potential youngster from Chelsea, Man City ect just for this to come out of nowhere last night! They don't have a clue! Lad looks decent can play anywhere in midfield and wing if need be. Played majority of games on loan at Genoa who are a decent outfit and has bags of potential.


{Ed007's Note - The picture going round is Eboue Kouassi and not taken today because the Celtic Park pitch isn't anywhere near looking like the pitch in the picture - the new turf was only laid 2 days ago - I doubt anyone except the contractors would have permission to walk on it incase of any damage while it settles and beds in - Oh and there's no white lines on it yet.


1.) 08 Jul 2017 20:29:06
Fair play Ed I've watched a few YouTube videos and like the look of the lad alot! Did think picture was questionable could be anyone but heard from a few folk about the medical and put 2-2 together. I'm hoping it comes off as we are crying out for Rogic backup just due to fitness alone plus the lad can play anywhere in midfield.

{Ed007's Note - He does look a top talent for his age.}

2.) 08 Jul 2017 21:00:09
Has Eboue featured in preseason as yet Ed?

{Ed007's Note - No, he picked up a knock the day before the squad flew out to Austria and by the time they got to Austria it was causing him pain.}

3.) 08 Jul 2017 21:00:19
Ed not doubting you but looks very like the rig out he was wearing on another pic doing the rounds. I'd post it but dunno how.

{Ed007's Note - The pitch doesn't have any lines on it yet - that picture was 100% not taken today.}

4.) 08 Jul 2017 21:26:33
Cheers Ed. Got a similar 'caveman' style hunched over stance that he had in photo of him too. Even went so far as to reassure fans that's not how he moves on the park.

5.) 08 Jul 2017 21:47:17
You think this ones a goer then and what do you think about him? As good as Musonda?

{Ed007's Note - It looks like it, he arrived in Glasgow tonight for talks so we'll see how things go. I really don't know much about him.}

6.) 08 Jul 2017 22:28:48
The videos on YouTube usually show all the best bits of players but his shows a few decent passes a few tackles but very little else. Musonda would have been an unreal signing even at his age. Not doubting BR one bit if he thinks he's the right target to help us in champs league then I'm all for it.

But if his YouTube videos are anything to go by this is a seriously underwhelming signing.

7.) 08 Jul 2017 22:42:55
Is he a playmaker/ no.10? Looks as tho he could be a wanyama type. by his build anyway.

{Ed007's Note - He can play anywhere in the midfield but people who know more about him than me are saying that Rodgers will play him as a No.10.}

8.) 08 Jul 2017 23:05:18
He can do a crackin backflip that's aw that matters. Mind you so could Efe. 🤔🤔🤔.

9.) 08 Jul 2017 23:13:11
Pitch was marked out yesterday according to Robin Buchanon Stadium Manager in a reply to me on twitter.

10.) 09 Jul 2017 00:37:24
Boab if Celtic are ever going to sign a world class player then there will always be risk involved. always has been the case and always will be as if there was no risk and you have near finished article then some English team would pay some ridiculous money! The market is mental atm! So much so that I heard today that Ruben Neves (young Porto CDM billed for big things) has just signed for Wolves (WOLVES) for 18 million! Wolves! Dembele was a young talent similar to the lad we are discussing and I watched his YouTube videos from Fulham and was not impressed. It was a signing of talent that needed the right place to nurture, build confidence and progress and look were we are now. The lad has been playing for Genoa in top half of Italian table and has (as a young loanee) played 37 games in Serie A. So as far as you're view on him for some youtube clip you watched for 4 mins goes, I'm extremely underwhelmed by your assessment of a player you know sweet FA about.

{Ed007's Note - Wolves deals are a bad example, Tompo because of Mendes involvement there but I get you drift about Youtube. If video cameras were so popular when I was young I would have looked like a CB with the skill and vision of Cantona and composure/temperament of Paul McStay!}

11.) 09 Jul 2017 01:17:41
Ed007. I bet your wife can never pull the wool over your eyes . Your reading of the pitch was superb and was the work of a master . m

Tell me, have the ground staff laid our new future pitch or is it just a holding job this yr and a new one next yr.

{Ed007's Note - There wasn't enough time to do the full job so the bottom 'layer' bit was done this summer and the final top bit will be completed next year. If you sesrch the site for 'desso' you'll see what the plans are and I'm sure there's a video of how it's installed and works.
My wife has always complimented me on my reading and treatment of the grass on the pitch ;)

12.) 09 Jul 2017 01:45:50
Tompo I wouldn't say sweet fa about. I watch Spanish football a lot and musonda was always a stand out no matter who he was up against. This new guy hasn't got a good rep and he isn't a player I've ever heard of. When BR was talking of pace power and pedigree can you honestly say that he's the guy? If it is then I'm not alone in thinking it's underwhelming!

I love what BR has done so far and if this guy is another dembele then I'll say I was wrong but I'm still hoping for a bunny out the hat signing!

13.) 09 Jul 2017 08:29:07
Balde looked a world class striker what a seen of him on YouTube boab so let's no beat him with that. i watch Spanish football most weeks and misunda is someone ad never heard of so we need to trust the manager he's dobe no bad up to now . remember this time ladt year plenty on jere didn't fancy sinckair and that worked fine bit like hayes that'll work out fine to.

14.) 09 Jul 2017 19:51:40
That pitch actually looks only laid the lines also are only put on and the lad on the pitch is 100 per cent the to be new signing c'mon ed keep up ain't ya seen a newly laid pitch even during a season lol if that guy isn't the new to be signing then he sure as he'll shops in the same place on the same day.

15.) 10 Jul 2017 11:29:45
Exactly if YouTube was available at the time, Larsson would of probably looked pretty pish n'all before he came to Paradise. I like this potential signing as I really rate Rogic but we need competition for his spot due to fitness alone but Ntcham will need to prove himself to dislodge him.

Not to mention if potential is fulfilled they can even play together in the same midfield! CB (like the look of Duverne even though he looks like staying in France for another year) St Juste was another name mentioned that they are now talking about big bucks yet still no bids.

Or even someone not mentioned yet of that quality. And another winger. Never thought Paddy was an option and still don't as whatever we put in some bottom half English team can easily outbid but still a small part of me that hangs onto BRs statement of letting EPL calm down that gives me the slightest hope, if not a Musonda or someone again not mentioned of that quality and that's our team for a champions league assault.



26 Dec 2016 20:29:16
Hey Ed I've seen the papers are continuing to roll with the Nagbe lad from Portland Timbers story and have apparently just signed a replacement. Do you think there might be a bit of substance to it. Or the papers just putting 2-2 together?


{Ed007's Note - Portland Timbers previous statement that Nagbe isn't for sale still stands as far as I know.}

1.) 27 Dec 2016 04:29:04
In today's paper that we have pulled out of a deal.



29 Aug 2016 14:17:25
Apparently Cristian Gamboa is in Glasgow for talks and due a medical soon. Anyone seen much of him? Know he's fast, but is he any better defencewise?


1.) 29 Aug 2016 14:46:05
(In the jungle the mighty jungle. )

He's our right back, goes forward, gets back. He's Cristian Gamboa.
He's no pretender, he's our defender.
He's Cristian Gamboa.

Ooooooooohhhhh Cristian Gamboa, oh Gamboa Oh Gamboa Oh Gamboa.

2.) 29 Aug 2016 15:23:13
Remember him from playing in Norway, wasn't just fast, he was bloody fast!
He was OK for Rosenborg, the previous bloke that was able to hold down the right back position was none other than our Lustig, he was never too brilliant for Rosenborg either. (notably better after he signed with us) .

Not sure how much of a defender that comparison makes him. but he should be able to get down the line and cross the ball in front of the goal if nothing else.

3.) 29 Aug 2016 15:23:17
Dear dear dear HL7 lol.

4.) 29 Aug 2016 15:37:57
No disrespect HL7 but that's ****ing terrible.

5.) 29 Aug 2016 15:52:18
Guys Cristian Gamboa name in glasgow is known as "Christ son" he's fast. He has a message for Joey ( i'm the best there is Barton) .
2 letters on the front ( HI) and back (BY) . this guy is so so fast


6.) 29 Aug 2016 15:57:31
he was part of costa rica team in world cup that made it to the quarter final in world cup and he's really fast and goes up field alot, i havnt really watched him i just researched him as soon as i heard the news and he seems a good fit for the hoops, that's hoping hahaha.

7.) 29 Aug 2016 15:59:23
but just wondering how much he cost, i read somewhwere that he was priced at 1million.

8.) 29 Aug 2016 16:00:17

9.) 29 Aug 2016 16:14:43
Lawell and Park scraping the bottom of the barrel again for average players.

This guy can't even get a game for WEST BROM!

10.) 29 Aug 2016 16:49:01
I remember that world cup he was one of the top points scoring defenders in the sun dream team comp so he must be good 😀 🍀🍀.

11.) 29 Aug 2016 16:51:22
He isn't getting a game for west brom because he is a defender who isn't 6 ft plus. The fact tony pulis doesn't rate him is a good sign. he's a guy who once built his team around a player whose of only skill was shying the ball 40 yards.

12.) 29 Aug 2016 16:56:47
Big Bhoy what has that got to do with anything?
Plenty very good players can't get into the squads in England right now because of the money being flashed around.

13.) 29 Aug 2016 17:40:57
Looks a good player. Whenever you doubt a player, think Janko. :)

14.) 29 Aug 2016 17:51:32
People keep going on about how much is he costing, And blaming PL and Park for this.

Would it make a difference if we spent £6 million on him and I personally don't think BR would have any player forced on him after what happened at Liverpool.

15.) 29 Aug 2016 19:43:42
Jonbhoy doesn't matter what the board do some people just won't give them credit.

16.) 29 Aug 2016 19:57:54
after happy bear shavers BR said he chose Janko because his meds had wore off.

no only joking

He said he chose Janko because of his speed up the wing.

I remember just before half time more than 3 player crossed into their half of the field - 1 being Janko as if they thought - keep it tight, score at half time end the tie - didn't work as he lost the ball - he was fast but couldnae get past my nan.

if we had a rb who was super fit, fast and could take a man on - sign him - does this guy fit the bill - ps we need one of those on the left too.

17.) 30 Aug 2016 10:20:21
Because he can't get gamd time at wesbrom he ain't a decent player? Everyone that watches epl football knows pullis prefers strapping solid looking full backs, bigbhoy you are ultra negative! The guys not even signed yet and your already knocking him and blaming who ever signed him, it was br decision to sign him not Park and lawell, give over with this crap bhoy.
Played at the world cup recently so has a decent pedigree, from clips I've seen he looks like he can defend better than janko, lightening quick, csn cross a ball, and also has a decent shot on him. Time will tell if he comes good for us but let's back the bhoy if he signs.

Not a rumour but seen Chelsea are looking to loan out Danny Drinkwater. Would anyone take him to fill CM?


1.) 17 Aug 2018 13:30:23
A would always liked him but wages again.



08 Aug 2018 21:58:15
May not be a bad thing. When we go away defending a lead we tend to play para as ****.

Astrana, Anderlecht at home (when we could lose and still qualify for Europa) , and even the recent game in Rosenborg who we made look like a team even though they were nowhere near our level at home! Are the most recent that spring to mind Beer Sheeva is another 4-2 at home. Jailbreak away

At least we go into thos game knowing we need a win no messing about

I think we have seen in last 2 qualifiers that Edouard as dynamite as he may be needs MD in beside him to lead the line and let him do his thing

I love Lustig but he's to slow. KT, Ntchm and McGregor were running riot down that left side. Forrest had the beating of that LB on the right but no support

The state of the bench tonight just proves that BR is trying to get through these qualifiers with both hands tied behind his back. We may well now make some signings. But if this away tie goes south it will be once again too little too late.


1.) 08 Aug 2018 22:19:11
Spot on mate.

2.) 08 Aug 2018 22:23:32
If they kept 10 men? They would have beat us . No point papering over the cracks . Something is wrong behind the scenes. Hell mend the board if it all goes t! t's up . Between the vvd money, Armstrong money, the world cup money? What is our net spend? Hee hee! Even after French eddy we haven't touched a penny without past cl money . Now the board are supposedly criticising Rodgers for speaking out about transfers?

3.) 08 Aug 2018 22:35:39
Tompo - that's right on.

4.) 08 Aug 2018 23:18:36
If they kept 10 men theyd have beat us. i think u mean 11 but that's bs . we got in behind them more when they had 11 men . the 10 made them fall even deeper back and gave us very little space but do agree on the penny pinching hail hail.



14 Jul 2018 16:54:57
I've said it before and I'll say it again that Mikey Johnson is going to be a star!


1.) 14 Jul 2018 17:20:47
He certainly has bags of talent. My only concern with him is he is very light weight at the moment and could do with bulking up.

The games he played last season in the first team he got brushed off the ball too easily.

All that being said I wouldn't mind seeing him have a wee run out this season to see how he copes.

2.) 14 Jul 2018 17:34:31
He’s too skinny. Definitely needs to bulk up before he will be considered for a run in the team. Loads of ability.

3.) 14 Jul 2018 19:35:38
Kt bulked up mj should just have a chat with him.

4.) 15 Jul 2018 01:28:28
There is a wee skinny boy Modric playing for Croatia tomorrow in quite an important game . He was chased from a crowd of clubs because he was too small and light.



27 Jun 2018 17:57:02

Yeah I get that BTC but was thinking it makes it less likely cause as you say it adds and extra 20 mill plus to the price. Still by no means rules it out. I'd be gutted if we lose Benkovic in January he really has steadied the ship.

I may be wrong Ice Man but I think Leicester actually signed him up to a bumper new deal AFTER the window closed. If so this would make it even more unlikely he would be sold in January.

All Rangers fans giving NL it tight saying behaviour is unacceptable and is goading fans. But the fat Buffalo runs past his own fans after scoring and goads St Mirren fans and that's all fine. The double standards is mental.
