I saw a rumour that Norwich and a few other clubs are looking to take Patrick Roberts on loan next season and hijack the deal he has with Celtic.
I've no idea what the details are of his loan, but I wondered if this could actually happen?
I'm not a great fan of loan signings, but if this is true, then it just shows what a nonsense a lot of them are.


1.) 03 Jun 2016 13:04:03
It woukd be a hammer blow. Arguably our mist gifted player and has the sort of return a Celtic winger should have. Having a pkayer like that on loan though, we'd only have ourselves to blame.

2.) 03 Jun 2016 15:46:45
Gerryc i wouldn't worry too much. As much as i'm not a PL fan, i'm sure he will have made sure there was no call back option for man city as a 6 month loan would of been pointless for both parties. After the success of developing Denayer it would be in Roberts best interest to stay put.

3.) 03 Jun 2016 17:52:43
Why are some of you guys going on about zlatan it will never happen get a grip of reality it's absolutely nonsense.

4.) 03 Jun 2016 19:17:48
I haven't seen the odds from the bookies, but if it was true that Celtic were second favourites for his signature, then why wouldn't fans want to talk about it.
There's enough nonsense spouted on your own sites for you to worry about without you bothering what is written on ours.

5.) 03 Jun 2016 19:54:50
Gerry what makes u think wullie1967 is one of them? A would've thought 1967 would give u a hint? Maybe am wrong n it's the year he was born but even if it was, what rangers man would put our finest year into his name?

6.) 03 Jun 2016 22:51:25
Well said Stephbhoy and gerryc I'm a real Celtic supporter don't miss a game and I'm not stupid in thinking zlatan comming to Celtic stupid rumours like that are embarrassing.

7.) 04 Jun 2016 09:47:28
why is it embarrassing wullie, the man himself said he would love to play for us, are we not allowed to think that maybe he was considering us?, its a rumours page mate. i found it quite refreshing to see us linked with a class act rather than the usual dross .

8.) 04 Jun 2016 10:14:57
Exactly bhoywonder it's a rumour page it was never going to happen, don't no if you no but people make this stuff up all the time especially on here you could start a rumour on here about Messi comming and it would take off lol
Hail hail.

9.) 04 Jun 2016 10:39:22
Wullie 1967, I apologise to you, I made a mistake in reading your post.

10.) 04 Jun 2016 10:46:00
i get what your saying wullie but i felt this was different as in he's spoke of his admiration for us and his agent saying some will be surprised, in reality were today linked with steven taylor, give me a ibra fantasy than a taylor reality every time pal.

11.) 04 Jun 2016 14:49:32
A think we are all just wanting a name in and hopefully it will happen soon hail hail.

12.) 05 Jun 2016 04:03:11
Wullie1967 we don't want any names in we want a big name in.

I've just got back from the match. What a brilliant performance that was.
These last couple of years have been a great time to be a Celtic supporter and today they made me feel 10 feet tall.
I wonder how those clowns who were celebrating drawing us in this semi final are feeling tonight, fairly stupid I would imagine. But then as has happened before they do their bragging before the match, we do ours after the final whistle.




22 Feb 2018 21:40:02
Tonight's result was disappointing but it only mirrors our performances in Europe throughout this season.
When we lost 4 goals in Astana after scoring 5 against them at home, it looked to me then that our defense is nowhere near good enough at this level. the results in Paris, Munich, and tonight just confirms it in my eyes.
I think the decision makers at Celtic need to decide how seriously they take playing in Europe. if they are serious then I think they have to try and sign a few players who are better than what we have rather than keep buying projects for the future.
The goalkeeper is a prime example, a lot of fans don't rate Craig Gordon yet now he's injured we're playing a keeper who is far worse. The only thing we have done about it is to bring in a keeper as back up who might never play for us.
I can't believe that a club of our size can't do better than this. I know the board at Celtic like to make money, but I honestly can't understand what the point of making all this money is if you don't use some of it to strengthen the playing squad.




07 Feb 2018 13:26:05
Ed. Do you think that with Leicester wanting Patrick Roberts as part of the Mahrez to Man City transfer it Will scupper any hope we had of being able to sign him permanently? .
I know he is keen to try and make it at City, but I wonder what his feeling would be about being shunted to Leicester as a makeweight in any deal.


{Ed007's Note - Roberts wasn't part of any offer for Mahrez, for a start there's no recall clause in his loan. When the story broke it was meant to be City offered Roberts until the media realised he couldn't be recalled and that made City look stupid they changed it to Leicester asked for Roberts.}

1.) 07 Feb 2018 14:54:44
Thanks for that Ed. It doesn't look as if he has much of a future at City.

{Ed007's Note - That's been the case for a while, Gerry.}

2.) 07 Feb 2018 14:55:31
Don't doubt u for a second ed but what does anyone gain by saying Roberts was the reason the deal was scuppered, just can't get my head round the media, saying that doesn't make the deal more sensational down south. Unless it was the Scottish media, they're a different kettle of fish.

{Ed007's Note - Read the stories, Steph, they contradict each other. I notice nobody's asked Brendan Rodgers about it either which is very odd, you'd think the Celtic manager would know something about it.}

3.) 07 Feb 2018 15:13:14
Ed. you not suggesting that the Journo's in Englandhsire are just as rotten at their jobs as the Mob of Sports Writers have in Sconnie Botland?

{Ed007's Note - Have you read The S*n or the Daily Star? They're no better than a comic and like in Scotland most of their 'stories' originate on Tw@tter.}

4.) 07 Feb 2018 16:30:59
Even if a deal for Mahrez was to materialise in the summer, the player would have to agree to the move. If a PL club are serious about getting Roberts then that pretty much rules us out unless City are willing to accept a lower offer from us. When teams like Brighton can afford to chuck £10m at a player as a punt what chance do we have?

{Ed007's Note - As you say, Kev the player would need to agree to the move and what if Roberts decides he doesn't want to move to Brighton?}

5.) 07 Feb 2018 18:00:53
Poor Brighton lol. They’re always getting stick like this but tbh they are the perfect example.

{Ed007's Note - Them and Burnley, Huddersfield, West Brom and Bournemout, best league in the world my arse!}

6.) 07 Feb 2018 19:24:07
It's funny a was looking at the premiership table earlier and thought to myself that they teams like Blackburn n that, that just missed the gravy train must be ragin with the dross that's in there. Not that I've got any sympathy for any of the teams down there.

{Ed007's Note - Blackburn, backed by Jack Walker's money were only a smaller version of Man City and they were never going to sustain being a 'big' club but clubs like Leeds, Villa, the two Sheffield clubs, even Nottingham Forest would all bring a lot more to the EPL than clubs like Huddersfield and Burnley. Fair enough they need to earn the right to be there but look at THESE average Championship attendances compared to
href="https://goo.gl/62MtLM">THESE EPL attendances and you can see there's not much difference but if say Leeds or Wolves were in the EPL their grounds would be bursting at the seams on matchday. A lot of the club's in the Championship have a history and supporters all over the world who would pay to watch EPL football but there isn't many Burnley fans in places like Asia or Australia.}

7.) 07 Feb 2018 19:46:05
That's why my dad says Celtic will end up down there or in some super league one day ed.
When these teams are showing their own games on pay per view who do they want to play. The team with 5 fans and a dug or a team with millions of fans all round the world?

{Ed007's Note - I think it'll eventually happen but we're a long way away from Celtic being involved in any planned Super League.}

8.) 07 Feb 2018 19:59:46
I read somewhere that Sky pay £11m for each match they show live.
I wonder if they had Huddersfield V Bournemouth in mind when they signed that deal.

{Ed007's Note - It's bonkers, Gerry and I think with the likes of Netflix and Amazon and BT of course out there it's just going to get worse. I honestly think there's people out there - probably in the US and Asia - that are actually EPL fans rather than support one particular club.}



03 Feb 2018 20:48:59
I don't think we can blame the pitch today. We have played on it many times before and won, including earlier in the season, so we should have known what to expect.
I believe that we need to change our transfer policy, we have to occasionally buy players in who are an improvement on what we have at present. We've been saying all season that we have a weakness at centre half, I can't see how the defence is improved by buying a youngster from Dundee who might or might not be good in three years time. Sometimes you just have to bite the bullet pay out some money and fix the problem now. It doesn't stop us building for the future.
The last eighteen months have been a great time for us fans, we've played some great football, and hopefully we will win another treble, but it was always likely that teams would find a way to nullify us, this is now happening, even Kilmarnock have managed to frustrate us the last twice we've played them.
In football you can't afford to stand still, other teams are going to try and improve themselves, so we have to try and maintain the gap. I feel this season we've been slow in doing this even though we're still the best team in the league.
Our club is very well run and it makes lots of money, but I don't see the point of making all this money if we are not going to use it to strengthen the team. That should be the whole point of making the money.


1.) 03 Feb 2018 21:59:28
The fact we lost 2 central defenders in the 1st 25 minutes is the biggest cause of the defeat in my opinion.
I think Rodgers honeymoon period has also ended with some supporters, but hopefully this will give the team, management, board and supporters that through complacency we will be beaten.

2.) 03 Feb 2018 22:43:51
On honeymoon period for a year and a half give it a rest.

3.) 03 Feb 2018 23:18:27
I think we lack a plan b (at the moment) when things aren't going our way, but if you look at what BR is trying to do and the age of the team he is trying to bind together, i can only assume he is planning to be here for a while and nurture a team together for future glories. Bring on 10IAR. hail hail, in BR we must trust.

4.) 03 Feb 2018 23:56:51
Give what a rest sammy, the fact is Brendan Rodgers has been put up on a pedestal by some, and can do no wrong in their eyes, and now we lose 2 games, and have drawn some home games they turn on him, I’ve even heard some folk stating we’d be better with Delhia after a year of BR love.

5.) 04 Feb 2018 00:51:04
Be careful what you wish for mms.

Lose two games from August to February given the great MON had loses with larsson sutton Hartson petrov moravcik Lambert lennon mjallby balde Thompson McNamara stubbs Boyd agathe.

7.) 04 Feb 2018 08:55:35
What am I wishing for, if you actually read what I’m saying instead of arguing with yourself. Rodgers is a good manager, and I’ve never said anything else, but I’m entitled to state my opinion, that is obvious
The team is lacking something this year, and the defensive problems are still problems.

8.) 04 Feb 2018 09:26:19
Cause people criticise Rogers doesn’t mean people are “turning on him”. He deserves to be criticised like anyone. He is not above making a can't of it like anybody else. Blind faith and he can do no wrong attitude of some isn’t healthy.

The team where rubbish. We created nothing and had only one shot on target. Nobody could beat a man or even tried and our passing was utter dross. How can you not receive criticism for that?

He can take it and it shows the mentality of the players who lacked confidence when they faced an organised team needs looked at.

The pitch doesn’t help. The injuries disrupted us, but we still didn’t create anything. If that’s not a worry and not worth criticism then what is?

By the way, Stevie Clarke will be the next boss of Sevco.

9.) 04 Feb 2018 14:51:37
Steven Francis Clarke nooe no chance family if mad tims.

If the fee for Roberts is way beyond what we can afford then fair enough, if however our board are playing silly games with Man City and we end up losing out on his signature, then I reckon there will be a fair bit of anger amongst the supporters.
With the money we earned last season from the Champions league, the money we will get when Van Djik moves on, and 50.000 season tickets sold, it would be terrible to lose a player of Roberts ability due to us trying to be too clever for our own good.

I think first of all a player has to have ability, the fitness side of things come afterwards.
I think a lot of the modern coaches are only interested in how athletic a player is, it doesn't seem to matter to them if they can actually trap a ball correctly or be able to make a pass to a teammate.
I've said it before, but I wonder how many of the modern coaches would have Jimmy Johnston in their teams?, I reckon a lot of them wouldn't like him dribbling with the ball, and they would no doubt want someone who tracked back better and had a good "engine".
I wouldn't mind betting there are quite a lot of young players out there who didn't make the grade because they were better footballers than athletes.

I thought Rodgers did a good job at Swansea but a poor job at Liverpool. I hope to goodness it's the Rodgers from Swansea that we see and not the Rodgers from Liverpool.
It always looked to me when I saw Liverpool play that he couldn't sort out their defence, if he struggles to sort out our defence then we are going to be in trouble.

I can't see the club paying much of a transfer fee for Edouard when he is basically the third choice striker.
When Griffiths was injured he was getting a bit of game time but now Griffiths is back he seems to have dropped out of the reckoning. I thought that Sunday was telling in that with the game won and only a few minutes left the manager still didn't put him on. That doesn't look to me to be a player who Brendan Rodgers is going to be desperate to sign in the summer.

I think football clubs in general like the celebrity fans as it gives them a higher profile.
At least Billy Connelly has an association with the club whether you like him or not. compare him to Prince William who claims to be an Aston Villa fan. I wonder apart from trying to make himself out to be a man of the people, made him pick them to be his team.


{Ed007's Note - What association with Celtic does Billy Connolly have that warrants a free seat for life at Celtic Park? And as for Prince William, he's been supporting Aston Villa for around 20 years because he didn't want to just jump on a bandwagon and support a Man Utd or Chelsea and after school pals took him to an Aston Villa game 'incognito' he enjoyed it so much he decided to follow them. I doubt a 15-year-old kid thought of looking like a man of the people when deciding his team.
At least Willie's never been pictured wearing another team's top like Rod the Fraud, he even wore an Aston Villa tie to sis sister-in-law's wedding.}

We haven't played as well this season as we did last season but in the big games we seem to find another gear. Hopefully it will be the same tomorrow.
It amazes me listening to the pundits talking about how Sevco have closed the gap on us this season based on the last match at Ibrox. A match where they had home advantage, Boyata had a nightmare game, they took the lead twice, they had a man advantage for over half an hour, and their fans bombarded our players with missiles for virtually the whole 90 minutes.
Despite all this they still lost, yet the pundits still try to convince us that the gap is narrowing. I would love to see what the gap getting bigger would look like.
Any team can lose a football match, we've lost semi finals before when we have been the favourites, but whatever the result tomorrow Celtic are streets ahead of Sevco both on and off the pitch.

This nonsense gets worse by the day. How are fans supposed to make travel plans when they don't know either who the games are against or whether a match is at home or away.
They should just announce a set of fixtures and be done with it. You can't guarantee results in football, we could win the league against Sevco whenever it's played. If they made the Sevco match the third game in and we drop points in the first 2 matches what do they do then? .

I think they should do away with the split once and for all.
As far as I know no other league does it this way and they seem to survive easily enough.
When you have a system that means one team has to go to a rival 3 times a season compared to playing them only once at home then that system is deeply flawed in my view.
If Hibs have to play Sevco away for a third time this season and lose, and were then to miss out on second place by a point, would that not destroy any credibility the league has in Scotland? .
