Bahlul Mustafazada

22yo CB from Azerbaijan to come and train with the squad during pre-season with a view to a permanent deal.




02 Apr 2019 21:09:29
Heard we have 2 players lined up to come in more or less straight away in the summer.

Robert Gumny - Lech Poznan
Dario Maresic - Sturm Graz.


1.) 03 Apr 2019 05:49:32
Have we been linked with Gumny before? Name rings a bell.

2.) 03 Apr 2019 08:16:13
A good young rb who can cover Lb to. Would cost at least 6-7 million though. Don't see the board spending that much on a rb.

3.) 03 Apr 2019 08:51:54
Are these guys any good. And please don't say there good on fifa.

4.) 03 Apr 2019 10:38:01
Cory they've offered 6 million twice for right backs this season.
Boy that went to Valencia
Boy that plays in Italy.

5.) 03 Apr 2019 11:59:05
I don, t think any of these players are any good definately not any better than Ralston or Hendry. If we want good young defenders then look to Mexico and the RB and CB playing for Club America. Edison Alvarez and Jorge Sanchez together they would cost £10 million hopefully for the full package and bringing them over together would definately help them settle in at celtic park and allow us to get the best out of them.

6.) 03 Apr 2019 12:23:26
I think that’s a laughable statement form you jonace. “They are not good enough”. Not true in the slightest.

7.) 03 Apr 2019 13:47:06
Gumny is a really good player, don't know much about the other boy though.

8.) 03 Apr 2019 15:16:29
Jonace I’m 70 and better than Hendry. Got to be one of the worst ever to wear the hoops. oldkilly.

9.) 03 Apr 2019 19:20:11
Yeah Mexican league is the place to shop look at the crackers they signed from there and our very own juarez. If Lennon ain't staying could even pluck our next manager from there.
I think we should stay in eastern Europe and Scandinavia.
Personally think the Latino leagues the players we can sign like attitude to cut it and tend to want to bugger off come November.

10.) 04 Apr 2019 01:07:25
Gumny is a brilliant RB is very versatile as well as young
As for Dario he’s good from what I’ve seen he’s one of the best up and coming Austrian players he’s around 21 I’m fairly sure

Both good signings if can make them happen should even sell boyata to generate some extra money towards them.

11.) 04 Apr 2019 13:19:34
Gummny would be a good signing and plenty of potential to get even better.



30 Jan 2019 08:45:38
Few deals apparently near to completion.

RB -Jeremy Toljan
LB - Bryan Oviedo
CB - I don't know the name of as yet but there have been moved made.
Wing - Maryan Shved

Now that would be some way to finish off the transfer window.


1.) 30 Jan 2019 10:35:19
Would be surprised if any of this is true. Shved is the only one we know is signing. That will be our business done.

2.) 30 Jan 2019 11:10:02
Thought Oviedo was a right sided player.

3.) 30 Jan 2019 12:10:40
Bryan Oviedo is the Costa Rican international left back who plays for Sunderland, very injury prone .



22 Jan 2019 21:11:01
Another RB linked.
Robert Gumby 20 year from Lech Poznan.

Seems all talk about Castagne and Elabdellaoui has went quiet.


1.) 22 Jan 2019 21:26:39
More paper talk.

2.) 22 Jan 2019 21:40:53
Because they want 10 million for castagne and elabdellaouis club said not for sale.

3.) 22 Jan 2019 22:16:52
I’m sure “”Gumny” is a very highley rated Polish right back. A number of clubs will be watching him and I wouldn’t be surprised if he wasn’t of interest to a move to a bigger club. I’d imagine Dortmund or something will pick him up for cheap and develop him into a player. Sounds out of our league considering what we spend on players.



13 Jan 2019 11:17:06
Serge Wilfried Kanon.
25yo left sided CB.
Ivory Coast International from ADO Den Haag.

Around about £3-4m.


1.) 13 Jan 2019 11:52:58
Is this something you've heard?

2.) 13 Jan 2019 13:15:18
Yes KingH, is this a specific target you have inside info on, a personal wishlist or just a game of name the random footballer?

3.) 13 Jan 2019 14:19:30
He looks class hope it’s true he’s some unit.

4.) 13 Jan 2019 14:23:31
Relax guys, nothing in it at all.
I'm beginning to see Ed007's point about how people react when a name is mentioned. It could be any name at all, same reaction.
Here's one for you though: Ronny Escobar, highly thought of South American centre back, 6ft 6in tall, built like an ox and as fast as lightning, great goalscorer and a snip at just £1.6m. Really wants to come to Europe too. HH.

5.) 13 Jan 2019 14:56:29
He may be a snip and look class but we r restricted by work permits so players need to unless they play for national team or r a real up and coming pedigree I doubt we would get the WP. This is how other teams in Europe are able to operate as they don't have the same restrictions eg Porto and shaktar.

6.) 13 Jan 2019 15:08:12
Been told this is a player Toure has recommended to Rodgers as he did with Weah and Bayo.
Fits the type of player we are looking at and within our price range.
I'm not saying it 100% happening but it's a real possibility.

7.) 13 Jan 2019 15:37:24
Anything to pablo lol.

8.) 13 Jan 2019 16:03:13
James Forrest to Liverpool in swap deal with Mo Salah.

9.) 13 Jan 2019 17:19:37
Wrong Tam, it's Salah plus Andy Robertson and £5m for Jamesy lol HH.

10.) 13 Jan 2019 17:21:11
@Greenockbhoy, yes Pablo was his great uncle lol HH.

11.) 13 Jan 2019 17:21:57
Swap deal and ten million to Celtic I’m hearing tam.

12.) 13 Jan 2019 19:28:01
Pablo Escobar Claude green grass and Derrick trotter are the 3 bears🐻 lol.

13.) 14 Jan 2019 22:00:58
So Toure is now in charge of signing players for Rodgers?




kinghenrik's banter posts with other poster's replies to kinghenrik's banter posts


12 Jan 2019 20:09:19
James McCarthy on loan👍.




07 Jan 2019 06:24:17
Deals for Weah (for 18months apparently) and Bayo to be completed in the next day or so and should be in training in Dubai.

We've not giving up on Castagne yet, bid of £6m to be made with a hefty sell on clause.

Also another three players could be coming in another ST, CM and CB.


1.) 07 Jan 2019 08:45:27
Hope the Weah loan deal is an 18 month. Don’t see the point in these 6 month loans with no view to buying. At least with 12/ 18 month loans your getting the season out the player.

2.) 07 Jan 2019 09:09:43
The option to buy just means a fee is agreed prior to the loan. There's nothing stopping us putting in a bid for any player who comes on loan.

3.) 07 Jan 2019 09:13:58
All sounds very promising. Does anyone have news/ details of surplus players leaving in January - or are we building an extension at Lennoxtown lol.

4.) 07 Jan 2019 09:35:24
I'm feeling very positive about this transfer window but as with AOB the squad is becoming a bit bloated and we need to get rid of the deadwood.

5.) 07 Jan 2019 09:40:47
We will be clearing some players we do not need I’d imagine during this window. As noted by ED, Kalas/ Isimat Mirin have been enquired about. Castagne is in the works and it’s down to Atalanta, and I’m sure another couple will come in.

6.) 07 Jan 2019 09:44:53
I can’t see as many as 7 coming in. Burke, Weah, Bayo and hopefully a right back will be it I reckon. Unless Boyata leaves. If so we’ll need a centre half.

7.) 07 Jan 2019 10:53:18
Love your Optimism KH.

8.) 07 Jan 2019 11:02:47
We need a centre half regardless LM67. Bad planning from us if a centre back isn’t priority. We are definetley after a centre back. We are definetley after a right back. Bayo, Weah and Burke are imminent. A RB and CB are next. Hopefully a goalkeeper in the summer.

9.) 07 Jan 2019 11:41:32
Would love to see the back of Boyata after the shenanigans last autumn. I know he formed a decent partnership with Benkovic eventually, but he does not want to be here and when he comes back after injury, he needs weeks to get up to speed and initially, seems to forget even the basics of defending. Benkovic and Ajer would be fine until we sort out the position permanently.

10.) 07 Jan 2019 11:53:50
I can't see us not bringing in a RB and CB. I don't think BR will want to leave it to the summer when Boyata and Benko will be gone along with Lustig.
We can't go into the CL qualifiers with 3 out of the back 4 being new players. The need time to settle in.

11.) 07 Jan 2019 11:58:38
I agree we need one but not sure we’ll bring one in. We currently have Boyata, Benkovic, Ajer, Jozo, Compper, Hendry and Bitton on the books. Can’t see us adding another without a few departures.

12.) 07 Jan 2019 12:49:34
Long term Ajer is still going to be one of our 2 centre halfs. He still has a big part to play for us, this season as well as next.

13.) 07 Jan 2019 12:58:45
Compper and Boyata will be gone in this window so it would make sense to get 2 CB in now but I can only see the one coming in as we have Ajer Jozo and Benko too. Can see Gamboa leaving this window too to make way for a new RB but then that leaves Ralston in limbo so he may be loaned out.

14.) 07 Jan 2019 12:51:56
If we get Weah and Bayo over the line then I can't see another ST coming in, focus will then turn to the defence. A RB and a CB are a must this window for me. I take it our interest in Jean Kevin Duverne has cooled, am I right in saying he got a bad injury? I haven't heard his name mentioned for a while.

15.) 07 Jan 2019 13:05:39
I think most of us agree that we need a RB as Lustig is getting past his best there, but does anyone think he may be offered a new contract with a view to him playing CB? He's played there before and is more than capable, imo. His salary would need to reflect his new status though, of course. I'd like to see him stay anyway.

16.) 07 Jan 2019 14:04:08
LM commper will be Gone in this window, he can't even make the bench so in my opinion he won't even be considered to replace anyone that leaves, Henry will go out on loan I can imagine, and Boyata should never wear a Celtic top again, he has downed tools you could see that in the last couple of games, big Jozo looked better than him before he got dropped to be replaced by Boyata. For me a RB and 2 CBs have to be brought in this window and get rid of Boyata, take what's offered and run. who knows we might end up extending big Benkos loan in the summer, he seems to be enjoying his football up here. A replacement for Boyata is a must this window though, just purely so we can show him the door knowing we have the cover.

17.) 07 Jan 2019 14:17:44
Lustig or Gamboa will be off so a new RB will come in.

Compper, Hendry (loan) and possibly Boyata so we will need another CB, that would be leaving us with only Benkovic, Ajer, Jozo and Bitton who can play there.

The CM i'm lead to believe we are trying to sign is only 18 years old so won't come into the team straight away.

As for another striker, Morgan and Hayes may go out on loan Weah will probably spend most of his time playing off the left so another more experienced striker along with Edouard and Bayo.

18.) 07 Jan 2019 15:37:22
Would that midfielder be Tobias Christensen from Start?

19.) 07 Jan 2019 18:08:52
What CM?

20.) 07 Jan 2019 19:04:30
Correct LM67.



08 Aug 2018 10:41:41

I would be more than happy with that.


1.) 08 Aug 2018 10:53:46
Arzani has just passed his medical and expected to be announced on 2 year loan at lunchtime.

2.) 08 Aug 2018 11:22:42
Can’t see us signing Arzani and Roberts with Morgan also there and Sinclair and Forrest doing well.

3.) 08 Aug 2018 11:35:04
And Hayes Johnstone campsie.

4.) 08 Aug 2018 12:08:14
Arzani can play behind the strikers and on either wing.

5.) 08 Aug 2018 12:56:28
Arzani is a definite signing but he is not going to walk into the first team for a while.



24 Jul 2018 17:16:22
Valentin Rosier from Dijon. French U21 right back.

Have you heard anything on this one ED?

After Brendan Rodgers comments about young French players coming to Celtic and with our three French boys wouldn't be a bad thing trying to get another few in.


{Ed007's Note - I'll need to ask Ed002 about specific interest - I don't know of any from Celtic and I would think he would be too pricey for us - but Dijon have signed Mickael Alphonse so Rosier could well be on his way out.}

1.) 24 Jul 2018 23:17:22
Looks a cracking player kinghenrik! Are we being linked with him? Or is he just a player you like the look of?

2.) 25 Jul 2018 15:00:34
Was told this yesterday that he is our next target along with a young Australian player called Daniel Arzani.

Apparently we missed out on a RB a few days ago called Cristiano Piccini, seems like the deal for him was almost complete for him to then end up going to Valencia at the last minute.



10 Jan 2018 18:33:20
Have you heard anything about us interested in a young Bulgarian CB called Bozhidar Chorbadzhiyski.
He's 22 and plays for CSKA Sofia?


{Ed007's Note - No but he would be a cracking signing. I think the price would scare us off.}

1.) 11 Jan 2018 09:20:54
He could be the longest chant ever? Give us a B - Give us an O.

2.) 11 Jan 2018 10:22:26
£83 just to get his name on your tap,

3.) 13 Jan 2018 16:45:37
If players from the Bulgarian league are out with our spending reach, what league is within our reach?

{Ed0333's Note - Macedonian? Syrian?

IMO we are going to need minimum of 6-8 players in the summer I reckon.

GK - Bain, NEW
LB - Tierney, NEW
CB - NEW, NEW, Ajer, Jozo
CM - Brown, Bitton
AM - McGregor, Rogic, Christie, Ntcham
WING - Forrest, NEW, Shved, Morgan
ST - Edouard, Bayo, Griffiths (NEW if he doesn't make it back) .

Rest of the squad made up with some youth and younger players about the first team.
Hazard, Ralston, Gutman, Welsh, Church, Kouassi, Henderson, McInroy, Johnston, Arzani, Dembele, Oko-Flex, Aitchison

Possibly 11 players leaving with players out of contract and loans.

Out of Contract
De Vris, Lustig, Gamboa, Izaguirre, Boyata, Allan, Sinclair

Loans finishing
Toljan, Benkovic, Burke, Weah

I would be trying to offload as many of these as possible as well.
Gordon, Miller, Compper, Hendry, Mulumbu, Hayes

Some amount of wages amongst that lot, surely that could cover at least 4 first 11 players and a few squad ll players.

No chance we are paying that sort of money when he's out of contract in the summer.

Few CB's out of contract in the summer i wouldn't mind us having a look at.

Samir Memisevic
Jean-Kevin Duverne
Harold Moukoudi
Vudjadin Savic
Martin Caceres.

3-4-3 for me.

Boyata Ajer Benkovic
Toljan Brown McGregor Hayes
Forrest Edouard Sinclair

Subs. Gordon, Ralston, Jozo, Ntcham, Weah, Burke, Bayo

If Tierney and Lustig are fit replace with Hayes and Ralston.

15 Jan 2019 14:02:08
Said before with the Burke, Weah and Bayo deals done.

I'm certain a RB, CB and CM will still come in.

And I also expect some money getting spent on these positions which will take abit longer than expected to be completed with teams playing hardball.

Totally agree.
I think Kalas and Memisevic are the types of players we should be signing.
Both playing at a good level and at the right age plus both are out of contract in the summer so wouldn't cost a fortune.
