What is the score with Eric Shevchenko is he just waiting for january and a move.


1.) 16 Nov 2017 16:12:19
He's available for selection this weekend.



21 Aug 2017 19:22:19
I see cape town are saying we have signed Coetzee. no offical announcement.
I will wait until it is announced, after all we still await his arrival in Glasgow and taken a medical.
He still has to agree terms and i will wait till i see him in the green and white.




04 Aug 2017 19:41:10
I see BR is being linked with a Toulouse midfielder harly a position we are short of cover for. I hope someone has got the wromg player and it is Issy Diop real class could be better than VVD.


1.) 04 Aug 2017 20:43:08
Agreed Jonace. We've got a load of midfielders. No need there. Who does Issy Diop play for and how much would he cost?

2.) 04 Aug 2017 21:35:36
But he can play right back, centre half, up front and even in goals so a perfect midfield signing for us!

3.) 05 Aug 2017 04:48:12
Diop plays for Toulouse look him up on Utube a powerhouse with lightning pace 6ft5ins really strong defender, Although you cannot be sure from video he looks a player. As for price who can tell in this market after Neymar eerything is going out the window who wouldhae thought we would pay 4.5 million for a player to sit on the bench.

4.) 05 Aug 2017 09:55:23
Gaffer said no defender coming in.

5.) 05 Aug 2017 18:17:24
Does he have any coaching badges nialH? Sounds like the dug's ;)



04 Jul 2017 18:08:19
I see we are linked with Mario Pasalic from Chelsea. Looks a more athletic, stronger and faster version of Bitton. My only concern is why Chelsea are lettig him go or his two previous clubs AC or Monaco have not made bids for him.


1.) 04 Jul 2017 18:13:33
So is Charly Musonda not a target after all despite all the speculation that talks were at an advanced stage?
Drewzybhoy .

2.) 04 Jul 2017 19:12:06
Does anyone outside of BR and whoever he trusts really know? I'd rather duverne than any of the attacking players to be honest.

3.) 04 Jul 2017 20:39:33
Duverne has ruled out move g this window supposedly.

4.) 05 Jul 2017 18:58:20
Pasalic would be some signing too. Not sure where it would leave Armstrong or Kouassi but add Brown to make up a quartet and McGregor as the plan C for the dept. and that is a half decent midfield.



03 May 2017 13:32:52
I see we are being touted as being interested in Lewis Gibson, I hope we are also looking at Adarabioyo, Renie-Adelade and Dominic Solanki. We could get these players for ery little as their contracts are up.

Strachan needs to look at Macgregor and Mcginn for Brown and Armstrong. Bet it does not happen and he will go back to old slow and useless.


1.) 30 Sep 2017 23:38:49
I am more impressed with McGregor every time I see him and McGinn is a guy who might be good enough for us one day. I agree they should be considered for Scotland.

2.) 01 Oct 2017 02:47:08
jonace - Strachan is a strange little man, I never fully took to him at Celtic. I fear he might shoot himself in the foot and blame the media. Again.

3.) 01 Oct 2017 09:36:48
I think Mc Ginn would be a good replacement for Broony. It won't be Ntcham. The longer we leave it, the more his price will go up. He drives forward, a thing that as yet Ntcham hasn't shown. I'm hoping he has just had an awful drop in form and recovers, but, he has been awful these last few games and is only in because we spent so much money on him.

Go for McGinn in January I say, at the very least we will recoup our money on him, right now to me Ntcham looks like a waste of money and I'm sorry if that offends the happy clappers who hate any criticism of players. The onus is on him to stop playing like he is and live up to the fee and wages he is picking up. Pointing out he has been awful is just stating the truth, he needs to get his act together fast. Passing sideways and back is not what we bought him to do.

Both him and Hayes have been dire and haven't moved the team forward one inch. If anybody argues they have they need to take off the green specs.

Mcgreggor on the bench when either plays, Armstrong and Rogic too, is not doing the team any favours with, on current form, putting us two men down.

Hayes will never be good enough, Ollie has a chance but so far looks nowhere near what we need. That's just a fact and if you don't agree watch the last three games to help you out.

Offer £2m and Hayes for McGinn in January.

4.) 01 Oct 2017 10:06:57
hayes is a squad player

don't think he is any better than gms who went the other way.

he played well for Aberdeen and was the right price for us.

ntcham has potential, he's young and finding his way - I also believe he has been told by BR to be the forward thinking midfielder (whilst others are defensive) so he is passing the ball into areas full of opposition - whereas a defensive midfielder passes the ball back to their own defence

I would give ntcham time - potential is there to see with the pass for the first goal on Belgium as proof.

5.) 01 Oct 2017 10:26:49
One pass doth not a player make. I hope you are right, but he is not player to drive us forward as Rogers stated he needed.

If he is worth £4.5m on current form, then the market really has gone nuts.

Hayes shouldn't be anywhere near the squad. I cannot believe we gave the sheep £1.3m for a 29 year old who has brought absolutely nothing so far. I know we are a charitable club but for feck sake we are taking it too far. Christie at the Dons who is a player and we are giving Hayes game time. Again, only because Rogers has paid far to much for him. On the basis of form he shouldn't be on the bench never mind the field.

Anybody kidding themselves in the signings we have made have moved in forward are lying to themselves. It will be last years players that win us the treble. That's not progress when you have spent £5.5m.

6.) 01 Oct 2017 10:32:31
I fear Ronnie, I mean Gordon, might play one of the Fletcher's or both.

7.) 01 Oct 2017 13:51:58
Magic, i think you're jumping the gun on Ntcham. He's young, and young players lose form, he'll come good again.

8.) 02 Oct 2017 08:25:22
Steph I hope you're right, but even when he was playing better, he didn't drive forward and if we are a team built on power and speed, I didn't see that in his game then either.

He slows us down with continuous easier passes sideways or backwards. His forward passing has been awful as we have all witnessed.

We are better when he isn't playing. That's just a fact. Armstrong, Rogic and McGreggor all give us more. That is just a fact too.

He has the work to do to justify the fee. So far, nowhere near convincing me he has improved us.



28 Sep 2017 18:07:54
Suggestions for the line up for Hibs please Mine are as follows

De vries

Gamboa Simunovic Boyata Miller

Forrest Macgregor Bitton Sinclair



Would love too see Shevchenko back in the squad as i think we might need three at the back for Bayern.


1.) 28 Sep 2017 18:31:00
Lustig jozo boyata tierney
Ntcham bitton
Forrest mcgregor sinclair
Cant underestimate this hibs team ad go as strong as poss depending whos all fit.



28 Sep 2017 10:41:01
Some footballers are thick, Ryan Fraser is complaining that Strachan does not go to see him at Bournemouth as this is too far for him to travel.
Dah Strachan lives in Southmpton 30miles away is he thick or what.


1.) 28 Sep 2017 14:53:53
He probably doesn't know where Southampton is.



25 Sep 2017 13:37:23
Can some one tell me why Grant Hanley gets into the Scotland squad he has played more minutes for scotland than first team football this season.


1.) 25 Sep 2017 13:43:44
We ain't exactly blessed with defenders jonace.

2.) 25 Sep 2017 14:03:16
Is mcrorrie not Scottish, he's the best Scotland has ever produced apparently.



09 Sep 2017 11:23:37
Good Morning

Lovely game last night except for the lated goal against, I know Gordon got critised for coming off his line but what other choice did he have.
Bitton lost his man he was not even in the same county. Gogic had the freedom of the park to pick his spot.
I think BR has madean error in not bringing in a CB Kelvin Wilson or Chico Flores on a short term contract or a youngster on loan if the player he wanted was not available.
We have a team that could score against anyone but cannot defend against a pub team


1.) 09 Sep 2017 13:07:32
We really missed the bus on the centre half situation during the last window and although we can deal with shuffling the pack domestically - we could have done with a decent partner for Simunovic until Boyata gets match fit.
Unfortunately I feel much the same about the goalkeeper and although he may get the benefit of the doubt at times, he is still extremely casual, careless and is prone to far too many rushes of blood and a severe near-post weakness.
Fortunately we have some very talented and gifted players in other positions that help compensate for this.

2.) 09 Sep 2017 14:01:14
Why doesn't he play Ajer? Does he just not rate him? Seems the obvious choice with the injuries we have.

Ntcham is young and yet too develop gie him time. Remember Stilian and Armstong last year, It is a shame Koussi is not fit i thought he was just starting to show what he was capable off reminded me of Wanyama when he first arrived. I am sure BR will pick the best middle to front he can. lt is not the midfield that worries me it is the defence. I would like to see three at the back with Lusnig in there but do you go with Boyata and Simunovic or use Tierney.

That would be fantastic the next big defender can't see it happening but whao! him and Issy Diop and we could win CL.

I watched Kerr and Wardrop on wednesday and they too looked very good and are the same age as Ajer and Adarabioyo, we aslo have MacCart and Kellacher to return in the summer. If we buy someone like St Juste that means we would have 7 players all 19-20 and you cannot play them all. Some would be disallusioned and leave it is a problem that needs careful handling as i think we should be produceing our own players where possible. They are cheaper and stay longer. Shame O'Connell did not work out liked the lad and his attitude hopes he does well whereever he goes.

I said the EPL would not grant him a work permit as he does not meet their qualifing standards. The SPL and scotland would grant a work permit.


{Ed007's Note - I think you need to read up on tne changes that were made to the FA regs in 2015.}

It won't matter after Thursday when Strachan F**ks it up by picking his championship failures and we lose to Solvenia/ Slovakia when he will retire anyway.

I hear you when you want spend money on players but they have got to be the right players. Big Chris was saying recently that there would be lots of championship defenders who would be happy to come north to Celtic. But these may not be good enough. BR said he tried to get players in during the window but they had to be better than what we already have and you would not want to upset the harmony that clearly exists within the squad. look over the river and see the trouble expensive outsiders can cause without actually improving the team. Could you this serco side is any better than last year they spent a lot more than us.

Last time they met in europe we went to the PSG shop in Paris and bought them over the counter when we tried to get into the ground the police escorted us into the Celtic end. However that was in middle 90snot ure if it will be that easy this time. Everyone was very friendly and helpful then.
