I have just read that the Edouard transfer fee was as follows
4.5 million + add ons for champions league group stage qualifing for four years + extra if capped for france + his agent and wages for four years
Total 9 million that would tie in with what BR said.


1.) 16 Jun 2018 17:03:20
I can’t believe what you’ve just described is the biggest potential outlay ever by the club, which is what they said in the club statement. Sutton and Lennon were both £6m and must surely have been on at least £25k per week in wages.

2.) 17 Jun 2018 01:44:09
I'll concede that the deal has been done ;) . As far as the contractually binding bump up fees go? . Your a country mile ahead jono. I've not seen the paperwork. No one has. Unless James Forrest decides to write a novela of his life so far with a tasty insider tell all and spills the beans we will never know.

3.) 18 Jun 2018 11:38:58
What’s your source for this breakdown?



22 May 2018 16:24:02
I see we are being linked to a Newcastle defender. They are quoting a price of 8 million it will never happen at that cost no way will Pl or BR sanction that for a player who could not even play in a mediocre PL team.
Also i have not seen any interest in Stuart Armstrong from any sites he will be lucky to get a move to a average championship club. He would be better off staying where he is on improved terms.
And finally i believe that the deal for Osmund Edouard would be more like the same as that of Ntcham.

Jonace could u give me the lottery numbers for Sat mate bit skint.

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 ;)

I am very sorry to hear about LG but it raises the question who will be our second striker, and was that the player BR flew out to see.
If you were our scouting team who if anyone can you recommend to the manager.


1.) 12 Dec 2018 22:02:00
I know he’s had a bad time of late but I wouldn’t mind Wilfred bony . Big strong forward and would be good at holding it up, also if he can regain his form when he first joined Swansea he would be a great signing.

2.) 13 Dec 2018 00:33:59
What about this Shankland guy at Ayr, don't know anything about him, apart from reading he has scored a lot of goals, some people score a lot of goals in the lower divisions and get lost when they move up a level, but sometimes you can tell by how the player takes the goal or works for the team that he will be ok, I knew LG would be ok, when I seen him playing for hibs, when on loan from wolves, and don't start with we shouldn't be buying anybody from the lower divisions, there is talent out there even if they don't come from some exotic place or don't have s fancy name.

3.) 13 Dec 2018 07:16:34
I've only seen a wee clip of one of his hat tricks, he's a decent player by the way he took his goals but I've no idea if he'd do it at our level, I'm sure I read that we're one of the many clubs looking at him, it would be neglectful if we didn't at least scout him.

4.) 13 Dec 2018 08:44:29
Buy him and loan him to Aberdeen.

5.) 13 Dec 2018 08:48:25
If LG is expected to return then I'd be happy enough with a loan until the end of the season. There are a few EPL guys who would do a job up here and aren't getting game time. Carroll, Defoe, Iheanacho to name a few. Ideally I'd want a permanent signing but it might be worth a short term fix in order to see where the land lies with Griff come the end of the season.

6.) 13 Dec 2018 10:08:53
Aindoh twice in the last few years we have bought the best player in that division and neither have made an impact.
The lad shankland has not long ago been let go by Aberdeen because they didn't think he was good enough.

7.) 13 Dec 2018 10:30:51
Surely we have to set our sites higher than the Scottish championship. would anyone really fancy shankland up front v Salzburg? . know I wouldn't.

8.) 13 Dec 2018 13:33:02
Just because he has been let go by someone else doesn't necessarily mean he won't develop into a good player, there are lots of examples from the past, whose names I can't remember at the minute, but of course, he might be at his best level just now, or he might move up to the premier and keep banging goals in, if he is s natural goalscorer, he will score at any level, including the very top of Europe.

9.) 13 Dec 2018 13:23:05
I'd like to see us go for the striker from Red Star Belgrade think his name is Pavkov, big strong and young. If can get for a decent price will be money well spent 👌.

10.) 13 Dec 2018 13:27:57
A goalscorer will score in most leagues given the chances but this is underwhelming news if we are looking to sign him. We need a physical striker up front as we don't have that since the moose left.

11.) 13 Dec 2018 17:13:04
whit about that guy morelos.
Seen some comments were they are punting him as a possible £20-£30 million player.
He plays for a wee club in Glasgow which have only existed for around 6 years and are in financial difficulties so we might be able to nick him on the cheap then sell him on for a huge profit.

I have never seen him play great football but he is very highly rated by all the experts and punters in the Scottish media.
Anyone seen him play this great football?

12.) 13 Dec 2018 18:35:51
If he's a natural goal scorer he will score at any level is a load of rubbish.
You can be a natural goal scorer at one level and not good enough to step up.
Kris Boyd for example or Hooper or Scott McDonald.
All fantastic goal scorers in Scotland but never able to regularly score outside it.

13.) 13 Dec 2018 16:53:31
Not seen anything of the player myself, but was James Vardy not signed from a non-league team.

14.) 13 Dec 2018 19:21:37
The boy is talented and won't cost much isn't going to be thrown on as main striker but yes still a gamble . read a bit about him some time back think it was an ex Aberdeen player said he was blessed with natural talent but never applied himself just drifted along but after moving downward again to ayr the penny finnily dropped with the boy and has started to act like a pro.



10 Dec 2018 08:32:23
I was speculating on who would you want to replace SB should he decide to move in the summer. Malumbu or would you think he might move on too.
Kouassi finally given a good run to see what he could do, or someone else from the youth team. Maybe a brand new talent from outside the club and Scotland. My choice would be Liam Henderson he seems to have come of age in Italy and i a;ways liked him as a skillful creative and stong midfielder. I could see him Macgregor and Christie as the Celtic and Scotland midfield for the next decade.


1.) 10 Dec 2018 09:00:40
Mulumbo and Kouassi are rank. BR knows that now hence why both have hardly played.

2.) 10 Dec 2018 09:59:37
Calmac and Christie👍.

3.) 10 Dec 2018 12:23:06
Bring back Wanyama.

4.) 10 Dec 2018 17:16:03
WAnyama wouldn’t take a drop in wages mate perfect replacement tho what a unit.

5.) 10 Dec 2018 17:55:13
James McCarthy for me 👍🏻.



29 Nov 2018 23:08:37
Thought tonights game was our best performace in Europe under BR especially going forward in the first half.
However I did think Lusnig was treading water a lot of the time. He could not raced forward and you could see that Rosenburg left a lot of gaps down the right.
The only time he did get forward he allowed Forrest one on one with the central defender and we scored.
Lusnig has been a great servant and should not be discarded but a fast skillful RB could offer us so much more going forward and create a greater threat.


1.) 30 Nov 2018 10:02:15
Reminiscent of the Anderlecht away game and we could/ should have had the goals that reflected our dominance.
Very impressive all over the pitch and our control and passing on a difficult surface was absolutely brilliant.
Perfect way to prepare for the cup final on Sunday and another boost is the fitness and form of so many players fighting for places.
Great time to be a Tim.

2.) 30 Nov 2018 10:52:24
Rodgers is quality on the ball a joy to watch. McGregor has been good in Brown's postion and it's good we have options in their. Still prefer McGregor further forward influences the game more.



23 Nov 2018 13:24:43
Everyone must watch the christmas video hilarious a club like no other.


1.) 23 Nov 2018 15:14:31
Lustig and Broonie made me laugh 😂.

2.) 23 Nov 2018 15:50:28
Griff for me.

3.) 23 Nov 2018 17:11:27
The biscuit tin made me giggle 😃.

4.) 23 Nov 2018 18:14:52
No way is Eddy higher than Henrik on the top trumps Christmas game.



10 Nov 2018 18:10:23
Little question for everyone, would you like to recruit Patrick Roberts and James MaClean next summer or place your faith in Micky Johnston and Lewis Morgan.


1.) 10 Nov 2018 18:23:13
Mclean for selfish reasons . paddy ship has sailed for me but excited to see how the young bhoys progress think we’ve got a diamond in Morgan.

2.) 10 Nov 2018 18:39:51
James from the hills of Free Derry for me! 👍☘️.

3.) 10 Nov 2018 18:42:07
Roberts yes McLean no.

4.) 10 Nov 2018 19:13:44
James McLean has never had the chance to play for us Paddy did and chose to leave.

5.) 10 Nov 2018 19:30:57
Both are worth a punt. Paddy isn’t £7m + tho which City want. Would take him for £4m- £5m.

6.) 10 Nov 2018 19:37:46
Ryan Christie is a great example to Johnston and Morgan, that if you show dedication and determination to put in the work, then you can make it at the home of the Champions, playing great football in front of 60,000, winning medals and enjoying regular European competition. I honestly think there are other positions we need to improve either through injury, age and raising quality for CL games.

7.) 10 Nov 2018 21:27:41
As a footballer I would prefer Patrick Roberts, I know McLean would be popular because of his background but I don't honestly think he would improve us on the park.
If Roberts could show the form of 2 years ago before his injury problems, then I think he could still turn out to be a top player.

8.) 10 Nov 2018 21:59:51
Wouldn’t want Roberts back because he’s not committed enough and it would create problems with my campaign to get his song converted to James Forrest’s song.

9.) 10 Nov 2018 22:13:43
We all want a team of James Mclean's.

No1 James McLean
No2 James McLean.

10.) 10 Nov 2018 22:48:05
McLean is no better than hayes.

11.) 10 Nov 2018 23:56:57
Not one Celtic fan would even mention James McLean if he wasn't an Irish Celtic fan.

{Ed007's Note - It's a long list, Kev but seriously, McClean would do a turn in the league for us and the $hits and giggles alone would be well worth it.

12.) 11 Nov 2018 07:44:38
No 3 James McLean
No 4 James McLean
No 5 James McLean.

13.) 11 Nov 2018 09:19:15
Wouldn't take either of them at this moment, we are going to need to invest elsewhere ie, going to need a right back and possibly two centre defenders and a striker over next two windows.
We have plenty talented wingers at the moment.

14.) 11 Nov 2018 10:21:42
Ed I do believe he'd make squad a bit better because he's better than Hayes but would he help us set up a level? I don't think so
Do you think it would be rubbishs and giggles or bombs, bullets or attacks in the street?

On a football point of few he wouldn't enhance the team a great deal and for money he'd cost not worth it

For his personal point of few would he put his young family through That?

{Ed007's Note - McClean would walk to Celtic Park to sign for us and he'd have the full support of his family and like Neil Lennon he wouldn't let the bigots dictate his life or stop him living the dream of playing for us.}

Why now? does not make any sense. If he was leaving why not after the August window closed. Anyone new has no chance of getting their people in for the January window.

I hope it is Le Harve defender Harold Moukoudi. However in this point if we beat the **** on their home patch before the January transfer window would you keep Boyata or sell him if he is not going to sign a contract.

Scott McKenna I know everyone will say what! but show me another player who we can afford ( prepared to pay for) at his age, as powerful, left footed, 6ft 4ins, quick, can play long passes, and has as many games/ caps.

would you accept 12 or hold out. If the clubs policy is to develop players to sell is this the maximum return we can expect for a player who was considered a liablity just 12 months ago. Could we find potential before the window closes.

I have heard that sky won the bidding but not much extra from last deal. SPL should say no deal until they up the anti but you know they won't "no balls" There are other options today Run the tv output for themselves then we can play the games when they want and offer great packages I for one would rather pay for an exclusive SPL package.

{Ed007's Note - I don't see why not if there's no agreement with Hibs. McGinn was never going to leave Hibs in the lurch by signing a pre-contract in January, the deal had to be done this window.}
