Has the Benkovic deal been confirmed?


1.) 31 Aug 2018 21:13:49
Just asked the same thing.

2.) 31 Aug 2018 21:26:00
Yeah this afternoon on the bbc. Nothing on Dembele tho so i dunno where all the sources that he is away are.

3.) 31 Aug 2018 21:40:40
Official site and br press release.

4.) 31 Aug 2018 21:43:38
It's not on the Celtic website to can't be confirmed.

5.) 31 Aug 2018 22:27:30
I’m not sure if it’s been confirmed yet there’s nothing on the Celtic website or ssn. I hope it’s confirmed it’s been an embarrassing transfer window.



01 Apr 2017 10:14:43
Ed, you heard anything about the Billy Glimour to Celtic rumours? Do you reckon there is anything in it? Give it 5 or 6 years and we could have Gilmour and Dembele (Karamoko) in the same side.


{Ed007's Note - A women I know who works at Celtic Park told me that there was murmurings the other day that Gilmour and his dad had a late night meeting with Peter Lawwell but one of the youth players who know Gilmour says differently - he says that the lad's dad has met Lawwell and Congerton a couple of times over the last few weeks and Lawwell has asked the Gilmours not to sign for anyone without giving Celtic a chance to at least match any offer.}

1.) 01 Apr 2017 17:20:42
He's a Celtic fan by trade is he not ED?

{Ed007's Note - So I've heard but I don't know for sure.}

2.) 01 Apr 2017 17:48:51
Anno 100 percent his mother is.

3.) 01 Apr 2017 18:39:04
ED007 and guys when I heard this story I genuinely thought it was an April Fools.

{Ed007's Note - Our scouting/recruitment department wouldn't be doing it's job if they weren't interested when a young player like Gilmour being available. I think he'll end up in England but I don' see the big deal, Dylan McGeouch never encountered any problems when he switched between youth set-ups.
And if people are going to give a 16 year old lad (and his family) dog's abuse over leaving Ibrox for Celtic Park they shouldn't be allowed out the house alone.}

4.) 01 Apr 2017 20:33:59
ED007 maybe wee traitor mo johnston is advising him lol.

{Ed007's Note - Tell Mrs Tim I said she's to wash your mouth out!}

5.) 01 Apr 2017 20:52:25
Great point ED. out development squad seem very strong at the moment. Kelleher will make an appearance in our squad at some point I'd imagine.

{Ed007's Note - Exactly. Why wouldn't we be interested in Gilmour? If he's as good a prospect as people who know more about it than me think it's a no-brainer. If he's got any sense he'll definitely leave TRIFC, their academy set up is a shambles compared to clubs with a 10th of their budget.}

6.) 01 Apr 2017 21:13:16
Ed a wouldn't like to see the abuse the lad would take, if he signs on for them he'll be their best chance to get out the mire. He wouldn't be able to live in Scotland if he signed for us mate, they've pinned all their hopes on the boy. If we signed him he'd need to live underground.

{Ed007's Note - By the time he made the first team only the most staunch of knuckle-dragger would have any great grievance against the kid.

7.) 02 Apr 2017 04:01:56
If he signs now it will be a mere footnote in the rags no matter of the lads ability, hopefully, there loss. If it is all quiet at the crumble dome come summer and he develops as a target I'd say jump and get the lad if he is decent. watch the story develop and laugh. If it's too much move south get a good wage and help his family and avoid the poison of the city switch.

8.) 02 Apr 2017 10:14:59
thats them all, lol.



16 Feb 2017 12:06:01
Anyone heard the rumour that Celtic are interested in signing Billy Gilmour? Apparently he turns 16 in June and both parties are keen but loads of big clubs after him. Think BR could really develop him and he has show with KT, Miller and Aitchison that you'll get a chance if good enough. This would also have the added bonus of making the Sevconians utterly raging 😂.


1.) 16 Feb 2017 15:24:46
Would we have to pay compensation for him?

2.) 16 Feb 2017 19:09:13
I'd say so if he is still classed as an academy player. It will be buttons, low risk and admittedly a big giruy. He hasn't signed pro yet as far as I know.

3.) 16 Feb 2017 21:11:01
Tell the huns we"ll wave the money for the damage to our bogs and we"ll take Gilmour.

4.) 16 Feb 2017 21:31:43
Stevie on those basic fair and sensible compo for compo grounds mentioned id say pefect business. However inluding the current currant bun financial law case climate into that sensible, fair and apt offer. we will be lucky to sign him before his 40th.



30 Jun 2015 22:58:09
Apparently Janko to be unveiled tomorrow? Anyone else heard this?


1.) 01 Jul 2015 09:53:56
Hopefully m8! Any news ed007?

{Ed007's Note - The deal is done, I don't know what's holding up the announcement but technically the transfer window for international transfers only opens today. Even Boyata couldn't be registered as a CFC player until today.}

2.) 01 Jul 2015 10:14:45
Cheers ed007 some guy!👍

{Ed007's Note - (yes)

3.) 01 Jul 2015 12:27:27
Wonder who disagrees must b some1 ed put in his place lol hail hail

4.) 01 Jul 2015 18:07:33
On the CFC web site
He has signed on a 4 year deal subject to medical results that club expect tomorrow morning



29 Jun 2015 20:57:47
Any update on Saidy Janko Ed? Thought this was being done today. Cheers


{Ed007's Note - I don't know mate, he was due up today for further talks and a medical. Everybody expected an announcement today. He was up last week to meet RD and be shown around CP and Lennoxtown so I'd take a guess that if there's a hold up it's just finalising personal matters in Manchester.}

I love Rodgers but I blame him for that performance. He basically told the team they are not good enough for the next level and it took its toll. That was a gutless and half hearted performance from start to finish. Simo, Hendry, Kouassi, Hayes, Griff and Sinclair were the worst culprits for me. I'm beginning to worry about the situation with Rodgers. His interview lacked the passion and energy you want after a defeat like that.


1.) 11 Aug 2018 15:24:32
If we sell Boyata and don't reinvest Peter Lawwel and Dermot Desmond have a lot of explaining to do.

2.) 11 Aug 2018 15:48:51
Thought Hendry was better than the others you named Marty. also none of those six you mention are now first team picks so essentially a second string team . and yes rodgers was at fault but you must see why he choose that team . Thought calmac had quiet game today which didn't help.

3.) 11 Aug 2018 16:18:55
Hear what you are saying DRB but I want 10IAR more than anything and going there is one of our hardest games so would have played a full team. We are now heading out to Athens under a cloud. How have things unraveled so quickly this week after a positive pre season?

4.) 11 Aug 2018 16:34:45
The annoying thing is Marty. Lawell and the board in general have everything off the park spot on . but always shoot themselves in the foot and handcuff/ hamstring the manager in their dealings with playing staff.

5.) 11 Aug 2018 16:44:59
Because the media are spinning it that way mate.

Yeah that was a poor performance but if anything it shows how seriously Rodgers is taking Tuesday that he’s willing to sacrifice 3 points today.

We aren’t going to win every game, it comes after a pretty poor week but we could still be make the CL and win a treble. Changes nothing.

Side note: look forward to seeing whether there’s any retrospective action on Naismith after his numerous kick attempts on Hayes. Although I think the SFA have dug themselves into a hole by reducing Morelos’ red to a yellow for a kick.

6.) 11 Aug 2018 18:14:00
BOTH CBs Are no way good enough I can't understand why people think Hendry is any good for me he would struggle to get on the bench for Servco Maybe in 2 years time he will be okay but for now I wouldn't have him even on the bench Kuassi a football player REALLY?



25 Jul 2018 22:57:40
The bhoys done is proud tonight. To get an away goal against us so early in such a high pressure game and to come back and play like that bodes very well in terms of how this teams temperament is improving. All that without Moussa, Griff, Morgan, Boyata, Simo and Lustig. Brilliant effort from the team 🍀.




16 Jul 2018 22:26:11
Does anyone get annoyed watching SSN transfer centre? I don't know why I watch it as all you see is mediocre teams linked with mediocre players all of which are £30m, £40m, £60m, £80m. It's just ridiculous and totally ruining the game. It does make you appreciate some of the players we currently have who are loyal to us, including some of the non Scottish players like Ajer, Rogic etc and are not lured by the ridiculous fortunes down there. It must make our scouting a seriously difficult task. When will these prices end?


{Ed007's Note - I sacked watching it years ago when they bitched everybody about Wesley Sneijder joining Man Utd, I don't even watch it on deadline day.}

1.) 16 Jul 2018 23:20:05
Dead right. It's painful watching at times. When u see what they say some very very average players are worth and then see what they think some of our players are worth is a joke.

{Ed007's Note - It's all geared up with fake news to get folk gambling, it all comes down to making money and when that's the objective it dan never be reliable. }

2.) 17 Jul 2018 09:23:57
Haven't watched it in a few years either. It's just a vehicle to advertise their channels and lure people into their betting site. They call themselves the home of sports news yet this week they won't have shown any footage of the world cup, or wimbledon, I'd imagine. Instead they'll be plugging something which they are screeining like womens rugby sevens or yacht racing. Then there's the 'sky sources' which will indicate that x player is in talks with y club, right before they show the odds and offer you their money for telling you the inside info? Pull the other one.

3.) 17 Jul 2018 23:17:36
SSN Is an absolute joke of a channel! Best thing I ever done was to get shot of that Shoite! Wrote on here before about the time James McFadden was coming to us for 5.75m plus Bobo Balde, load of pish! Like ED said it’s all linked to gambling! Sky bet is another joke! I remember we were the odds on favourites for scumbag Barton and jay boothroyd, more garbage! It’s a form of brainwashing by the way! I would advise anyone not to give it the time of day!



24 Apr 2018 22:17:07
I'm genuinely not worried about BR leaving. This is a man who is a fan, has 20+ years of management left to go find his way back to the most overrated league in the world and who has a chance to be a legend. To have his pic on Celtic park for life, to have a statue for life and whose family are all mad Celtic fans who shared his joy getting the job with us. He will not give that up for a few extra quid. He has a chance to be immortal. Or he could leave and try and secure top 4 in the EPL. Not for me and not for any true Celtic fan. He will leave at some point but he talks about a legacy and no legacy or legend happens in 2 years. That's happens with double trebles, invincibles and 10 in a row. Don't let the SMSM let you think otherwise. BR is here for 10 in a row folks 🍀.


1.) 24 Apr 2018 23:51:34
100% marty he's going nowhere! He's already home.



25 Feb 2018 19:21:14
Did anyone see Madden when Ajer got the head injury? He put the whistle to his mouth to blow which is the rules with head knocks, has a look up and sees them 3 on 1 and let's play go on. For me it is scandalous that he is not getting asked to explain why he did not stop the game. Good to be able to point these things out after a win otherwise we'd be accused of sour grapes.
Oh, and while I'm there, that park was like something you'd see from the 70s. I'm certain teams cut up their park for us coming as a leveller. And showcasing that on Sky is just plain embarrassing. What decent player would want to come to Scotland and play on parks like that and the one at Killie and Hamilton? Surely a minimum standard must be brought into play if we've to move our game forward?
Finally, well done to the team today. I thought Ajer, Broony, KT, Ntcham and Dembele were good. Considering we landed back home less than 72 hours ago from a hard game in Russia and had the travel up there then they done us proud today. Bit of consistency in selection and performances now for the rest of the season HH.


1.) 25 Feb 2018 19:50:50
Yes, head knocks are instant stoppage . Even at youth level where my son plays . His initial reaction was, why hasn't the ref stopped play? It was head on head! So no excuses 😔.

2.) 25 Feb 2018 20:19:45
Guys bang on the point:
Is there not an official in the stand watching the game, that reports incidents like that.
What about the Refs committee coming out and saying something about this?

3.) 25 Feb 2018 21:38:57
Don't get me started on that current. Anyone (and there are two or three at present) who held a season ticket at Ibrox, buying into their culture, mindset and beliefs (not to mention maybe singing or chanting their bile) - has no place impersonating an impartial official at any Celtic games. Only in Scotland would this happen.

4.) 26 Feb 2018 04:25:35
Too right OaB. A shake up is long overdue with refs supporting/ officiating certain clubs.

5.) 26 Feb 2018 07:55:39
That was shicki g refereeing he should be up on a charge blood pouring from ajer and he let's play continue shocking.

Ed not doubting you but looks very like the rig out he was wearing on another pic doing the rounds. I'd post it but dunno how.

I love Paddy, I really do, but I think he slows out play down a lot. I think we are more dynamic when he is not in the team. That said, if you need a bit of magic then Paddy can provide it all day long. Good luck Paddy and thanks for the memories but give me a KT, SB or CM all day long.

Not for me. This 3-5-2 has been the start of our poor performances for me. I'd play Gordon, Lustig, Ajer, Boyata, KT, Brown, Armstrong, McGregor, Sinclair, Roberts and Griffiths
Was a toss up between McGregor and Rogic but I'd keep Rogic so we have some magic from the bench if needed.
