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.




07 Apr 2016 08:57:05
Anyone heard anything regarding big Sviatchenko's thigh strain? Was expecting to see somthing reported one way or anthoer today.


1.) 07 Apr 2016 12:04:21
Seems he's out for season according to twitter.

2.) 07 Apr 2016 14:32:12
Just read after I posted that his scan is today. so I wouldn't get too worried just yet! Hopefully hear something soon.

3.) 08 Apr 2016 13:28:32
Report he's out for around 2 weeks but not been ruled out pulling through for Gers game.



14 Jan 2016 16:45:03
Dundee Utd have agreed to take Stokes on loan until the end of the season.


1.) 14 Jan 2016 18:20:06
Stokes has rejected Dundee Utd.

2.) 14 Jan 2016 20:37:50

3.) 14 Jan 2016 22:35:19
I'd offer D Utd a few of our other players on loan! They are a huge club with history and I definitely don't want them going out the league! Teams like Caley Thistle (even although I love John Hughes) Killy and Hamilton wouldn't be missed, especially with those bloody plastic pitches! Playing for Utd would be ideal, - huge pressure, big club, decent stadium etc! I'd refer Ryan Christie there than Caley! Also O'Connell if they would take him! I doubt Allen and GMS would fancy it but we need to get rid of some of the squad players! Allen is good technically but is no where near fit/ dedicated enough for me! He's like a young Kris Commons, there is at least 20% improvement in there. Ronny has to sort this out - it won't be long until he's been here 2 years and the team are nowhere near as fit and dynamic as I was expecting! There shouldn't be a choice about doing extra sessions, it should be mandatory, and if they can't handle it they should be told to leave! We're not even remotely good enough to be taking any of this lightly! For me this stuff is unforgivable because you don't need a huge transfer budget, or need to be playing in a great league! It lies at Ronny's door, the galling thing for me is he obviously knows how important fitness and all the basics are but it's not happening! I've said before that some of the teams you watch would run over the top of us, - look at Juve 2/ 3 years ago! The Italians have been doing it since the 80's, - some of the German coaches went over there years and years ago and said it looked like they had an extra player, especially Milan under Sacchi, - you don't need money for that! Even teams like Portsmouth and Leicester are running more than other teams, I think them along with Tottenham, it's not luck, they deserve what they are getting!

4.) 15 Jan 2016 10:44:21
We have too many midfielders at the club, with Allen and Chritie at the end of the queue behind Johansen, Bitton, Brown, Armstrong, Rogic, Commons, Forrest and GMS.
If you include Boerigter, Mulgrew and Stokes then it's pretty obvious we have a ridiculously unbalanced squad and need to address the deficiencies and surpluses asap.
We are very short of real quality in defence, up front and in the wide areas and RD has had plenty time to assess this.

5.) 15 Jan 2016 12:50:34
Celtic finalizing the transfer Ivana Močinić. Representatives Celtic should be going to the river in Dubai to find out whether the young Rijeka footballer to accept their terms. Final interviews will be carried out on Croatian soil, director of the Scottish champion John Park announced his arrival in Zagreb.

Since the zakomplicrala situation Anas Sharbini, Močinić remains the only player of Rijeka, which realistically can leave the club in the winter transfer period. The only official offer so far arrived in Sharbinija, who refused to go to China.

For Močinić no club has not sent an official offer, for all those interested know the conditions. As soon as someone Rijeka pay a total of slightly more than 3 million euros (2.7 mil. Euros plus reimbursement for development) fixed compensation, Močinić can go.

Celtic falls into the category of clubs, which will easily pay 3 million euros in damages if Močinić agree to the terms. A Močinić has reason to calculate the year of the European Championship finals in France.

Just got in the wider list of team members and any change of environment represents a risk. No one knows how many can take a period of adjustment to the new environment. If you stay in Rijeka until the summer, Močinić is sure to play and to have a real chance to see France. In this case, next summer will have no problem finding a club that is willing to pay a fixed compensation.

On the other hand, Celtic are an attractive club in the league for the appropriate step in Močinićevoj career. For ambitious players like Močinić not long way from Scotland to the English Premier league.

Where you copy and paste that from lol.

7.) 15 Jan 2016 13:41:17
Some Croatian site lol.

8.) 15 Jan 2016 17:10:38
Mocinic certainly looks like he can play a bit but cm definitely isn't the priority. Probably be to replace Bitton in the summer.

9.) 15 Jan 2016 18:30:57
We've only really got Biton and Brown in the holding role, Mulgrew is out of contract and if he leaves I'm cool with that! I also think in Europe you could have the option of playing a 433 with Biton, Brown and someone else. So for me the holding midfield role is a priority. I'd also like someone who can play with his head up and control a game/ keep possession/ pass the ball! We also badly need at least 1 centre half, and a no 9. The only part of the team were we have options is in the attacking midfield role, and even then it's quantity as opposed to quality we have!

10.) 15 Jan 2016 18:48:43
What we need is a striker, when stokes we don't have much backup, ciftci needs time, but I prefer him out left cutting in, so only leaves us with Griffiths and Cole.

Was sitting right on the touchline tonight in North stand and couldn't help but notice how much wee KT has beefed himself up. The wee man has always been industrious from day 1 but has now got the physique to match! Ntcham is an absolute tank n'all don't think there will be many teams on Europe that will be out muscling us.

Just realised that if you add up EVERY team in the league with a positive goal difference and put them together it's still less than Celtic's goal difference. Now that's a stat that tells it's own story lol.


1.) 23 Dec 2016 12:01:57
Just remember but Tompo there is no gap! 😂😂.

2.) 23 Dec 2016 12:39:35
But some people still think we must play 2 upfront.



07 Dec 2016 00:38:25
I can't believe what I'm reading! Type in Celtic FC into Google to see what the papers are saying and the first 3 results are about "mayhem" in Manchester! I can't believe we have succumbed to this lads but somone actually threw a burger. A cheeseburger at that! . At a police horse! I hope these scoundrels are brought to task and barred from parkhead lololol. Honestly what a load of pish.


{Ed007's Note - To be fair it's total bawbag behaviour, Tompo, anyone that hurts or throws things at any animal is a (swear) and deserves a slap. but granted, it's hardly headline stuff. They were probably looking for something to balance the Rangers fans giving the GMP Police Canine Division rabies back on '08.}

1.) 07 Dec 2016 08:03:34
There's nothing we can do now but stand back and watch how the MSM try to destroy our reputation. They will be so desperate to put us on a par with the shame and what they did back then. If throwing a cheeseburger at a horse because of the actions of one clown is the worst they can come up with, then most decent people will see through it. The only ones wetting their panties will be the same thugs who wrecked Manchester on that night. F*** the gutter press.

2.) 07 Dec 2016 09:15:44
Our fans are not all Saints. A bunch terrorized families on the tram by setting off fireworks. 90% of the first half songs were rebel songs, with deliberate intent to provoke. This, from our travelling support has got to stop. Takes away any moral high ground stance we like to think we have over the other side.

3.) 07 Dec 2016 10:04:46
Nora, there's a void left in Callcuta for someone so saintly.
Seriously thou, fireworks on a train? Someone needs their arse kicked as for the rebel songs, just look at the Saltcoats function, these songs need to be sung in discretion in backwater locations, bare bellied and sexually charged to entice the females into courting rituals. The race must continue. Are we human? .

I agree Ed but at the same time I always do the wee Celtic fc in Google before coming on here to see what the papers are saying and after that performance. I mean Armstrong was incredible, Forrest was ruining people before he came off and I tell you big Simonovic and Sviatchenco are (imo) one of the best pairings in Britain atm. But to see the first THREE headlines talking about a fan "assaulting" a horse with a cheeseburger. Considering most of our fans went in numbers, behaved, and outsang the City home allocation all game. To pick up on that 1 incident just highlights what is wrong with Scottish football.

{Ed007's Note - I see even the GMP were tweeting jokes about saying the horse is in a 'stable' condition. The media up here need to put a negative spin on anything Celtic simply because it's what the people who read their rags want. Or should that be 'Ru Peepul'?

Have to say I'm loving the rebel songs getting thrown back in, grace is just a beautiful song n superb sung live at games n then u get the variations over n over, symphony, just can't get enough, Willey malley etc etc n I think the away support r outstanding, same as at parkhead the GB r great.

Very much so Ed lol but meant every word!

07 Nov 2016 17:31:42
Just seen there that if Celtic win thier next 7 games then a win at Ibrox will take our points total to 55! lol #going for 55 haha.




30 Sep 2016 14:29:44
One of the things that impressed me the most was Dembele, after running himself into the ground, towards the end of the game and chasing down Silva running over half the pitch! Absolutly exquisite. The amount of headers he manages to make in our box whilst defending corenrs as well is like having an extra man in defence - extremly impressive.


1.) 30 Sep 2016 17:17:35
He is fast becoming a top all round footballer . He seems to be a dream to work with as he wants to learn.

2.) 30 Sep 2016 19:04:24
i seem to remember drogba being an important player for set pieces defensively aswell the similarity is there, tho I wonder how good Drogba was at 19/20.

3.) 01 Oct 2016 08:15:55
Was good enough that he was going to sign for us, but Momo Sylla told him not to for whatever reason.

Has anyone seen much of him for the development team that can comment on how good he is? I've not seen him at all but know he's highly rated by celtic staff! Would it be too soon to make this step up for a home game at some point this season?

We done this before Pat. Although its seems mad now Ciftci was pretty decent at Utd and stood out similar to Moult in Scottish league. Just signed Hayes who was hands down best player in Scotland out with celtic and as much as I hope he comes good and is just trying too hard as I was happy with him for GMS it can't be contested that he's been really average! If its a choice between Moult and some young French U20 international I'd be havin the croissant.

We seen Ward for Aberdeen where he played 21 games and often thwarted us with some great saves. Seemed very consistent during his time up here as well. Don't think you will get a better look into a potential signing than that.

Totally Kev! Young Ward looked a very good keeper during his time up here and I'm amazed he has not got more of a chance with the 2 diddies in front of him at Liverpool. Add to that the fact the Liverpool will no doubt go out and buy another keeper, rather than promoting the boy, I think there could be a real chance of getting him and IMO would be money very well spent.
