Celtic apparently bid £1.75m for Ivory Coast striker Vakoun Issouf Bayo. Not a great deal of first team experience. Hopefully he isn't another Amido Balde.

1.) 30 Dec 2018 11:00:34
That’s got to be a lot of rubbish it’s like they will just write any old rubbish to get a paper sold these days.

2.) 30 Dec 2018 11:18:59
Can't see it really surely with Dembele money we'll set our standards a bit higher than this guy.

3.) 30 Dec 2018 11:33:16
Hasn't played for man city or psg reserves so I doubt it.

4.) 30 Dec 2018 12:20:00
Hi EDs is there anything on the story that Celtic are about to table a bid for the Ivory Coast striker?

{Ed007's Note - It looks like someone's seen his name somewhere and because of the Kolo Toure link they've decided to link Celtic with him.
Galatasary have already agreed a 3.5 million fee for Vakoun Issouf Bayo and held talks with the player and his representatives so a bid of £1.75 million isn't going to throw that move off track.}

5.) 30 Dec 2018 14:55:05
What makes you think he'd be another Balde? Very negative attitude IMO. We as fans need to chill out with the knee jerk reactions to player links. We get linked with well known players and then when it turns out to be made up the fans moan that we didn't get them and then when we're linked with cheap unknowns the fans complain that they're no good etc. Ed more often than not gives us top info so we should try and avoid swallowing all the paper talk.

6.) 30 Dec 2018 18:38:28
Kevbhoy i agree everybody deserves a chance. Would take a punt on Lacina Traore on a free as well, although i think there is some reason why he isn't playing regarding his identity or something.

7.) 31 Dec 2018 11:39:33
I said I hope he isn't didn't say he was. Just he's got little experience and an unknown and having his first prolific season. Balde was signed on the back on an okay season with little experience and turned out to be rubbish. Could be another Dembele too as he had little experience but it's always a gamble we've failed on many times before in terms of strikers. We've got Edouard who is raw, Weah on his way who is raw we need someone with a bit of experience at holding the ball up not another wean.



27 Dec 2018 18:05:25
I'm hearing the player that was at the game last Wednesday being "wined and dined" was Vincent Janssen of Spurs.

1.) 27 Dec 2018 18:29:50
It might have been yourself bravetart but the only mention I've seen of a player being given the treatment was a post on here a few days ago. Did you read it somewhere or just a heads up?

2.) 27 Dec 2018 18:30:11
Jyst read that bravetart could be a decent bit of business.

3.) 27 Dec 2018 18:38:25
Someone mentioned his name a week or so ago.

4.) 27 Dec 2018 18:46:18
Definitely the calibre of player we should be targeting 👌.

5.) 27 Dec 2018 18:58:15
I mentioned about a week ago a Spurs fan mate of mine from North London messages me to say Celtic were in discussions with Spurs for Janssen. Maybe he was right.

6.) 27 Dec 2018 19:45:38
Celtic have denied it according to reports.

7.) 27 Dec 2018 21:14:30
Would be in keeping with how we do business.

8.) 28 Dec 2018 13:00:57
Perhaps not it would seem. But there seems to be a lot saying someone was there at the Motherwell game but who? 🤔.



24 Dec 2018 10:56:01
Timothy Weah on loan from PSG has been the latest name we are linked with.

1.) 24 Dec 2018 11:29:02
Total bull I’d imagine but I’d be over the moon with this, even at his young age he looks a total beast of a player!

2.) 24 Dec 2018 11:51:16
Is he related to George?

{Ed001's Note - his son.}

3.) 24 Dec 2018 18:31:07
If that’s true and the level of player we’re looking at then this next window will be just as shambolic as the last one! We need experience up there to help eddy not a boy who’s younger than him! But sadly when it comes to us and transfer windows nothing shocks me anymore!

4.) 24 Dec 2018 23:54:24
If you're good enough, you are big enough
If you're good enough, you are old enough
Isn't that Mtabbe just turned twenty?

5.) 25 Dec 2018 09:41:20
He's after 2 ST I'm sure one will be a cash buy big target man. Weah can play anywhere up front which would be ideal with our injury track record of the past few seasons, the boys got ability!

6.) 25 Dec 2018 14:55:27
Bhoy has announced he's leaving PSG on loan and followed all the Celtic squad on Instagram.

Welcome Timothy the Tim.

7.) 25 Dec 2018 22:36:42
@lh88 have you seen the boy play? he's brilliant! he's only a couple years younger than paddy Roberts who was great for us, he's a year younger than kylian mbappe who is one of the best players in the world! Who’s to say this is our only signing?

Great start for me, and the start of which should be a far better window than the summer one.



20 Dec 2018 19:27:31
Hi Ed, Do you know the player that was being 'wined and dined' at he game last night? Was it that Manny Perez boy or someone else? Edson Alvarez is a name that's being thrown about in the papers all of a sudden you heard anything about that?

{Ed007's Note - I don't know who was at CP the other night but Alverez has been watched by us - along with half of Europe - but Club America have so far said he won't be going anywhere next month.}

1.) 21 Dec 2018 13:15:18
Nothing to get excited over then as we'll likely miss out if there's that much interest in him.

{Ed007's Note - European teams have scouts that constantly trawl South American football, until somebody makes a move it's hard to tell who's really interested. what's
becoming more evident these days is that gametime and playing in the CL/EL is important to a lot of young foreign players more than big money.}

2.) 23 Dec 2018 11:49:13
Any idea what kind of wages they pay in the Mexican league? Would it be more the fee and permit that would be the likely stumbling block and not the wages.



16 Dec 2018 10:57:34
Celtic apparently scouted Willem II striker Fran Sol. Don't know much about the guy really. If we are after 2 srikers in Jan and Hibs wanting Allan what would people's thoughts be on a swap plus cash for Kamberi? Could maybe even include Hayes in the deal too.

1.) 16 Dec 2018 11:16:55
Apparently we are going head to head with sevco for fran sol 🤣🤣🤣 poor journalism trying to make out they can compete with us for players 🙈.

2.) 16 Dec 2018 12:31:03
That and Shankland lol they'll be doubly disappointed.

3.) 17 Dec 2018 07:58:02
Morning EDs any truth in the rumour about us looking at Fran Sol?

{Ed007's Note - He has been scouted but any reports about getting him cheap in January or on a pre-contract are wide of the mark - Willem II have a years option on his contract which they will activate if they haven't done so already.}

Plenty of positives yesterday albeit only Airdrie. Brown looked back to normal, Boyata taking over from pinging balls out from the back, Bain solid and passed the ball well, Ralston MOTM for me, Sinclair amongst the goals (should've had another 2) Weah looks quality, plenty of options up front now to turn a game. The likes of having a possibility of bringing on Weah (LW) Burke (RW) and Bayo (ST) is a lightening attack. Only negative about yesterday was the pitch. For all the money spent on the new surface it's looked as worse as it has ever looked? Hopefully it'll get some much needed work done to it with all the home games coming up.

1.) 20 Jan 2019 14:11:50
Brown was poor, really can't see what he brings to the team anymore.

2.) 20 Jan 2019 14:25:37
Brown played well.

3.) 20 Jan 2019 16:26:16
Brown had a good game. We still need him or a player of similar qualities in the team. Going to places like Hearts, Hibs, Aberdeen and Motherwell etc you need a bit of dig and fight and that’s what he brings to the table.



16 Jan 2019 13:18:30
So going by the past few days we are set to sign McKenna, Richards, Sol, Yaya, McCarthy Janssen, Wanyama, Kanon, Mbemba, Kodjia, Maja. May have missed a few but this site has become ridiculous of late I can imagine Eds eye rolling at all the rumours. We will be lucky to sign another 2 with the size of the squad we have at the minute.

1.) 16 Jan 2019 13:52:08
In over 50 years supporting the Bhoys, I've never seen us linked with so many players, it's ridiculous. I realise that most of it is utter sh. te but still. Brendan will surely know what we need in the player department, and we would like to think that groundwork on the priority positions have already been done since the summer. If not, it's going to end in tears for someone at the club. Let's keep the faith Bhoys and Ghirls. Football's back Saturday and hopefully get off to a flying start and go on a lengthy winning run and leave the pretenders in our slip stream. Hail hail.

2.) 16 Jan 2019 13:57:03
Your forgetting the 2 rbs oh and Micah Richards at this rate ed will be back on the sauce 🍺🍺.

3.) 16 Jan 2019 13:59:13
I wouldn't say ridiculous. The site is called Celtic Rumours not Celtic 100% verified information. You've got to take it all with a large pinch of salt. Best just ignore the site during the windows. but you cant. You can't because you love it. She's an evil temptress, playing with your mind and your metaphorical dangly bits.

4.) 16 Jan 2019 15:34:48
Personally I don’t mind reading the rumours, that’s what we come here for what else have we got to keep us interested when there’s a break.

5.) 16 Jan 2019 16:04:12
Just like the newspapers then.

6.) 16 Jan 2019 18:24:32
How dare people post rumours on a rumours forum eh Bravetart? If you don't like them don't read them simple solution.

7.) 16 Jan 2019 19:46:12
I think what she’s getting at is that they’re largerly unsubstantiated pish as opposed to speculation based on a genuine comment from a players agent or a meeting that actually happened. For example a lazy hack asks a player a question like ‘Do you see a move to Celtic as a possibility’? Player answers ‘I wouldn’t rule it out’, which is really a polite way to avoid saying ‘Don’t be so stupid, they couldn’t afford me’ Next thing you know the rag has a headline saying ‘Toure to sign for Celtic’! It’s tedious and doesn’t even relieve the boredom of the winter break, so I have to agree with Bravetart.

8.) 16 Jan 2019 22:14:47
I remember the time when Celtic supporters prided themselves in ignoring the
MSSM, but now it seems many cannot wait to give them publicity in repeating nonsense of Celtic linked with every Tom, Dick and Harry.



16 Dec 2018 13:21:26
Poor first half. Twice Edouard been static in the box when a cross has come in. Need more from him. Think shapes needing changed as it's not working as it is. Too slow passing out the back again now Brown and Ntcham are back in the team.



13 Dec 2018 22:01:32
Never in doubt lol. In a strange world we could've won that game had Gordon not done that howler and Ajer not missed an open goal which I think might have went in had he left it! Need some new signings now! Am I right to believe reading in here Ed we get £10m qualifying as Rangers the get through?

{Ed007's Note - I'm not sure of the money mate.}

1.) 13 Dec 2018 23:51:33
Brave Fart that is out of order if it wasn’t for Craig Gordon we would have been 3 down. I admit he’s not the best but he’s saved us more than he’s cost us. Hail Hail.

2.) 14 Dec 2018 08:51:43
Around 3 million for gaining entry to the groups. 500k for a win 190k for a draw. An extra 500k for getting to the round of 32. We will then receive a share of £71,000 ish dependant on our coefficient ranking. Each rank gains an additional share. Plus ticket sales etc we are probably looking at 8-10 million ish profit. Europa cover any other costs to the club (I think).

3.) 14 Dec 2018 16:26:31
He's paid to keep the ball out the net not do school boy errors like that there just isn't any excusing that it was pure pish. It was a positive way of looking on a negative result not out of order in the slightest. Credit where it's due and criticism also. That's probably what the OP meant Ken. £10m if we get through in total. Not too bad for losing out on CL. And no 6-0 results to worry about either.



13 Dec 2018 20:55:01
Very poor first half particularly from Rogic and Sinclair. Can't string 2 passes together, poor touches losing possession, no one on the same wavelength and gifting them chances by not clearing lines panicking slashing at clearances. Only positive is finishing the half strong and it's still 0-0 and we surely can't play as bad as that second half.

Rather than just going for the cheap option and getting an average player that ends up stockpiling the squad invest a bit of money for quality as it's a problematic position.

Wouldn't mind us going for someone like Petar Stojanovic at Zagreb. Big Benko could sell him on a move and wouldn't cost too much. Remember him doing well against us while at Maribor.

I always take posts with a pinch of salt. If there's substance to it Ed usually comments on the thread and gives us his input the fact he hasn't tells me it's rubbish. As is the Porto B or should we stay C player that's a RB too. BR letting the board know he expects us to strengthen "In a number of areas" A RB has to be one but where else if he's came out and said we aren't signing a CB in this window?

Sinclair has only missed since he's started taking it straight away. Needs to do that pause in his run ups again.

Exactly that Chris don't want to gamble losing the league because someone isn't signing a new deal. If we had another CB signed then fair enough but as it stands Boyata and Benkovic are our strongest CB pairing.

Is Lustig fit? I'd start Weah the rest of the team is fine add Christie to CAM. Is Izzy really that bad? Thought he was okay against Airdrie yet others have slated his performance.

As long as we don't give away any silly goals like we have done in Europe (Gordon) then we have a good chance. I can see them just trying to play for a draw at Celtic park. A 2-0 would be perfect and hopefully get an early goal to kill the tie off.
