Seeing as we've got a few CB off the wage bill and a bid put in for Duverne do you think if Sviatchenko goes we will buy another CB? Or do you think we will move Lustig there? See young Kelleher off to Oxford too.

Hi Ed, just thread a post on the Celtic blog on Facebook.

"Celtic have employed architects to give them revised costings and feasibility reports relating to redevelopment of their Main Stand.

Previous plans would have seen redevelopment of the old structure and the addition of another tier. It would have taken Celtic Park up for around 75,000 capacity and meant the stadium achieved Uefa 5 star status.

The timing could be given the club has an extremely large waiting list for season tickets.

HH Jordon 🍀🍀"

Any truth in this as there is meant to be 17,000 on the waiting list for season tickets? Would be amazing of we did this but can see there being a few games where it will struggle to fill the stadium.

1.) 03 Jun 2017 16:11:36
Interesting post BT a mate i get my info from said to me at the time the hotel plans were released that the Club definitely has plans to make the South Stand 2 tiers, He said there would not be much change in the attendance to what it is now using just the bottom tier but the top tier would be opened for CL games etc and bring it up to 76,000 i think he said so your post pretty much states exactly what he said. Great news if it happens.

2.) 03 Jun 2017 16:14:57
Sorry BT also meant to add that he said hospitality suites and upgraded changing rooms were also a big part of what was planned for the new stand.

3.) 03 Jun 2017 17:09:43
Would be a good investment and really put the stadium amongst the best. If we upgraded what you mentioned, increased capacity, the hotel/ museum as well as the dome at the training ground I can see Celtic Park being selected to host a European final in the near future. The extra revenue we get from the capacity at Celtic park is what keeps us ahead of the Sevco too. Imagine adding another 10,000 or so season ticket holders to that.

4.) 03 Jun 2017 17:41:10
I work with a few Man United season ticket holders and in order to fill the stadium they have certain rules with their tickets. For instance, you would need to have attended the lesser games to be allowed the chance to attend the big games. Maybe something the club would have to implement.

5.) 03 Jun 2017 19:57:03
Man Utd season books are a right rip off my mate has one and had to buy tickets for every game no option to opt out that would be a disaster imo if we went down that route.



29 May 2017 12:12:48
(Hit send too early) . Newcastle keen on the player too. There's been rumours of Armstrong having a few down in England sniffing around, Sviatchenko to Leicester rumour, interest in Bailly as well. Also read today that Commons, Ambrose, Allen, Ciftci, GMS are all but done with the club. Are all these genuine of paper talk to unsettle the club? And where do we stand with these transfers at the moment. Would be good if we can quickly get the players moved that Rodgers doesn't want here before bringing new ones in as that will give us a few more quid to play with. Also any update on VVD transfer too?



22 May 2017 18:39:26
Hi Ed, Although it come from one of the hit whoring sites is there any truth we are interested in Steuas Ovidiu Popescu?

{Ed007's Note - We've scouted him but Steaua owner George Becali has put an unrealistic price of 10 million Euros on Popescu who is a very, very average player.}

1.) 24 May 2017 00:40:52
Cheers Ed. That be the end of that one then.

{Ed007's Note - I'd reckon so mate.}



02 Apr 2017 09:55:21
Any truth in the rumours we're interested in Hyndman from the Rangers?

1.) 02 Apr 2017 10:25:17
I Think Hyndman is a decent player, according to a few of my workmates who are Rangers fans and watch him every week, he is a very good player.

2.) 02 Apr 2017 12:02:54
We were one of the interested clubs in the Summer so the link makes a bit of sense but do you think he would get in our midfield?

3.) 02 Apr 2017 14:58:17
Think he has a lot off potential and if all goes well he will be a premier league player one day in my opinion.

4.) 02 Apr 2017 15:30:46
Don't need him. It's to wind up the goons even further, on the day we win the league! Brilliant!

I see Ledley has been released by Palace, Me personally I wouldn't mind if we sold Biton and got Ledley in on a free. Anyone agree?

1.) 10 Jun 2017 09:27:42
That works for me.

2.) 10 Jun 2017 20:15:06
Not for me. We need younger legs than Joe. He came and he went. His time has gone.



29 May 2017 12:07:14
Hi Ed, With the season now over and with the season we've just had there is the expected rumours of half the team being wanted by other clubs. Dembele wanted by Chelsea, Arsenal Spurs and Milan, I find it strange how he was declared fit yet didn't get a run out. I remember you saying there was a fee agreed with Chelsea? Simunovic was apparently watched in the cup final by Swansea, Burnley, Palace, West Brom with Newcastle,

{Ed007's Note - I was really surprised Dembele never got on the way the game was panning out unless Rodgers was thinking if we were a couple of goals up and cruising Dembele would have came on for a run out but with it being so tight AND a hard physical game for the whole 90 mins he didn't want to risk him.
I just can't see Simunovic going to a team at that level. If he wants a move - I've heard Simunovic is very happy here and it's Sviatchenko that's got itchy feet again - then he will probably look at moving to Italy or maybe Germany.
Have a look at that EPL next season - Burnley, Watford, Palace, Bournemouth, Brighton, Stoke, West Brom, Swansea - then either Huddersfield or Reading! Best league in the world my ar$e!}

1.) 29 May 2017 12:51:32
Abso-bloody-lutely! It's the most hyped piece of crap since bloody Beckham! One of the most overrated footballers I've ever seen. All the time they are so hell-bent on making one of their players out to be a superstar for doing virtually bugger all!
Their desperation to look and sound better than they actually are is nauseating.

{Ed007's Note - Hahaha nonsense!!! Beckham and Scholes were the last truly world class players England have produced.}

2.) 29 May 2017 13:10:04
Beckham class? Class A twat, not footballer!

{Ed007's Note - His trophy haul and personal awards says otherwise.}

3.) 29 May 2017 13:26:17
Maybe, but Terry Hurlock could claim to have winners medal (albeit through cheating. )

{Ed007's Note - Yeah and that compares to 10 league titles in 4 different countries or a CL winners medal, runner up in the Balon d'Or or the other 20 odd trophies and the numerous awards from the EPL, FA and UEFA.
You can dislike the man and the way he's built his (and hers) public persona but to say that he wasn't a top class player is a bit myopic imo. So you wouldn't have liked to see him in the Hoops?}

4.) 29 May 2017 13:24:39
I accidently sent this too early the rest of it is in another post. When you put it like that Ed and you get all the ballbags down here saying we would be relegated put of league 2 it is ridiculous. If those teams are in the prem surely we are good enough to be there as well. It is so overrated. I find English football boring apart from Chelsea, Spurs and the odd City game the rest is like watching paint dry United in the Europa league final as a good example. I hope we keep Moussa another season and he has a injury free season and really bangs them in and add more value to his price tag. If Erik goes as will Kolo I'm assuming then I would hope we sign one experienced CB and one with potential. Giovanni Troupee was rumoured that would be a smart move.

{Ed007's Note - Troupee's a RB so I don't see that happening, Rodgers is more than happy with Lustig and Gamboa with young Ralston ready to push Gamboa for the back up slot in there.
I'm hoping we keep Dembele and that he gets called up for France for next summers World Cup, if he performs well in that the price could go through the roof.
The only EPL games I watch are the Man Utd games and games between the top sides. I'm not going to sit and watch Liverpool v Burnley so I'm sure as hell not going to watch Bournemouth v Swansea. Utd have been dire all season and I don't see that changing next season with Jose still in charge no matter how much they spend on new players. Mourinho needs to change his playing style asap or Utd will continue to struggle competing for the top trophies.}

5.) 29 May 2017 14:15:17
I did put a longer reply together, but it got wiped before I could post it. But no, I wouldn't have wanted him at Celtic. Nor Terry or Rooney, as has been rumoured. And my only point was that I'm pretty sure we could all find players with a haul of medals that we don't particularly rate.

{Ed007's Note - OK but I'll side with guys like Ferguson and Zidane on Beckham.}

6.) 29 May 2017 15:33:52
I find it strange that a lot of folk don't seem to rate Beckham. Maybe all the celebrity stuff has made people forget but he wasn't just a poor relation to guys like Scholes and Giggs, he was a major factor in the Class of 92's success. He also proved his class for England and on the continent for some of the world's biggest clubs.



06 Sep 2016 11:35:11
Is it just me or does anyone else on this site not rate James Morrison? He is talking up a move in January, I really hope this doesn't materialise.

1.) 06 Sep 2016 12:16:36
Totally agree mate! Moving for Morrison on the last day smacked of desperation! Not better than what we've got in my opinion and has never impressed me when I've watched him! No thanks for me!

2.) 06 Sep 2016 12:21:55
Yer right wiss total dick of a ref no friend of celtic that man.

3.) 06 Sep 2016 12:57:59
Snodgrass would have been a better shout in the last window, but he will be not be available or affordable in January, I reckon.

4.) 06 Sep 2016 13:40:03
Snodgrass is on a Bosman in Jan. Me and a few mates have been talking about this for a while, it will definitely be the best chance to get him at a good age. Even if we gave him a signing on fee, he's on a decent wage at Hull, we all know though that he's a big Celtic man and would like to play for the club one day, it's just a matter of whether he feels he owes Hull a bit of loyalty after missing more than a year after getting that bad injury on his debut. Also if he keeps playing well other clubs might give him a crazy offer. It's now or never though -he's 28/ 29 and in his prime. I don't want to be getting him in 4 years after he's signed a contract elsewhere. I agree about Morrison, no more than decent and incredibly on around 70k per week. Bannan was brilliant the other night, he's never a winger and suits that deep playmaker role in the middle, he's another we could have got for buttons a year ago. It's all about timing.

5.) 06 Sep 2016 18:10:00
ed007 had said that it was Morrison's agent contacting us so chances are he won't be coming anyway (hopefully) .

6.) 06 Sep 2016 19:43:25
Wouldn't want either to be honest, neither is better than what we have already, rogic, Roberts, Sinclair Forrest r all better than them. Thankfully neither rumour seems 2 have any substance.
Hail hail.

7.) 06 Sep 2016 23:31:34
Snodgrass definitely a Celtic man he went to St Mungo's RC High School on the Gallowgate.

8.) 07 Sep 2016 13:39:32
Cheers Big D. Don't get why everyone can disagree what I said what has he done in the BPL or Scotland? Too lightweight and Not enough goals or assists in him to be at a team like West Brom hence why he's dropped let alone a team like Celtic.

Much rather Rogic in the team he's a far better player! Agree with Snodgrass great player has goals in him and can play a few positions too didn't know he was a Bosman in Jan fingers crossed with that one.

9.) 07 Sep 2016 17:02:52
If Brendan Rodgers rates Morrison I am sure Morrison is likely to sign for us in January.



15 Aug 2016 02:38:23
Is there any news on a wildcard signing or did DDV get registered for it?

1.) 15 Aug 2016 08:44:30
Sure ddv got reg for it mate but I could be wrong.



10 Aug 2016 15:40:07
Not so much Celtic related but the Super Cup Sevilla has set up 3-3-1-3 never seen that one before wouldn't mind us trying that one out very attacking.

1.) 10 Aug 2016 16:57:25
thats the Marcelo Bielsa tactics bravetart, worked well with Chile and Bilbao. McGregor struggles in a 442 never mind that though.

2.) 10 Aug 2016 18:17:30
As most managers use their formation for just the early moments of game and inter change fluidly through out the match, I can never understand how formations merit discussion.

3.) 10 Aug 2016 22:56:03
Real struggled to cope with that Sevilla was really unlucky to lose that game. Was thinking it would be good with Ajer Armstrong and Brown. Be ideal tonight as KT is struggling.

Lustig Toure O'Connell
Brown Ajer Armstrong
Forrest Dembele Sinclair.

Has a bid even been accepted for him to be in talks? I thought AC had just had a €60m bid accepted with terms agreed for Morata too? Will be same scenario of Moussa wanting first team assurances.

We should easily have enough to beat Linfield even if we play our reserves. I'm hoping it will be a new CB that comes in as we seem to be a bit suspect still in that area. If we qualify for the group stages then hopefully that will attract the kind of player BR wants to bring in. ST and CDM maybe to follow. Although I'd be happy enough with seeing more of Eboue if we got rid of Biton then we would need a replacement.

Good reading that Ed, Just goes to show why we would never get in the EPL. Would be looking at in excess of £200m easily!

{Ed007's Note - The commercial side of things would explode for Celtic if they were in that league as well as getting the TV money and there would be a significant rise in matchday revenue with the increase of season tickets and corporate income.
It's never going to happen though and I'm glad of that, most of people who moan about the money in the EPL are only upset because their club isn't involved and getting that money. If Celtic joined the EPL, would Celtic fans suddenly stop moaning about the extortionate fees and wages clubs down there pay if we had the finances to spend the same?}

I think he got 11 goals and 24 assists last campaign. I doubt he will get the same amount of games with us but with us being so dominant imagine how much more he could add to that tally if he did. At just over a million too can't complain at that. The best player in the league that wasn't already at Celtic. One less to worry about next season.
