Here is my take on this window, maybe wishful thinking, but you never know.
M. Dembelle 20 million,
Jozo 6 million,
Henderson 0,
Armstrong 4 million,
Plus VVd 7 million,
= £37 million.

Caulker 0
McGinn 3 million + Hendo,
Roberts 6 million,
Morgan 0.3 million,
Hendry 0.5 million,
Musonda loan 1.5 million.

4 potential starters.

Massive profit there and scope for Brendan to make a big signing that I firmly believe he has an eye on.


1.) 04 Jan 2018 15:46:28
There is no way City would let Roberts go for that, they could easily get 4 or 5 times that from another English side.

2.) 04 Jan 2018 16:02:21
@CelticBhoy123 who's going to pay £25-30M for Roberts? You're having a laugh mate.

3.) 04 Jan 2018 17:31:42
Kev fully agree with that also who is going to pay that for Dembele.

4.) 04 Jan 2018 23:44:53
Why the rush to sell one of our best ever strikers . Only a very negative person would think of selling M D just now with injuries and maybe a wee struggle to regain the form of last season . Unless he is demanding a move just now, I would prefer to keep him until at least the summer and hopefully return of his form and maybe a place in the French squad and we could be looking at something nearer double your £20 m .
We need to maximise our sales value of our star players not rush them to the market at the first dip in form . Few if any strikers are in top form all year every year .

5.) 04 Jan 2018 23:33:17
Is Henderson's contract up?

6.) 05 Jan 2018 00:28:16
I think £40m for Dembele is pure fantasy stuff. He'd have to bang in 30 odd goals and win the EL or something to get that kind of offer which still wouldn't happen as he done it in the "pub league" and the "Mickey mouse cup" Got to look at what Richmond Boakye value is as he's had a better season than Dembele so far in a better league. Not sure what his valuation is but it won't be anywhere near £40m.

7.) 07 Jan 2018 17:33:05
I you are not sure what the value of a player is how do u know it isn't near £40m.



05 Aug 2016 19:28:43
Assuming Sinclair deal done then I think a creative midfielder and we are set with also a few out.
There is an argument for a GK but CG is decent enough and Fasan is considered good enough by many to step in if needed, so looking like a good window for us.
With a strike force of Sinclair LG MD and PR that will put smiles on our faces I think.
Also it means that the spine of the team has been strengthened which is what any good manager addresses.


1.) 05 Aug 2016 20:21:32
To me a GK is needed badly, also would like a tough tackling no nonsense midfielder brought in.

2.) 05 Aug 2016 21:11:57
Would you trust fasan or even Gordon in a cl game against quality opposition? I think over the next 2 season we need 2 new GK, but buy one now and put Gordon on the bench.

3.) 05 Aug 2016 21:27:17
Got to agree with chris30. Need a CM who isn't afriad to let himself be known. And btw, if not already know. Flamini was released by the Gunners on a free. 32y and still agressive as ever last i saw him.

4.) 05 Aug 2016 21:29:02
I think we get through this tie mate but I've no seen enough a Fasan and tbh I was never Craig Gordon biggest fan he's made a couple really good saves at times but he's prone to a howler at times its just in he's game still a tough one for me to take when you lose an England international goalkeeper ( England's number 1 in my opinion without being biased lol) and replace him way a guy that been out for some long, would like the lad Worm spurs number 2 no sure if it was Rodgers that signed him for Swansea.

5.) 05 Aug 2016 22:21:56
Rodgers said he wanted another CF i don't know whether that's still the case or not! But I'd love a GK and CM who can take a game by the scruff of the neck!

6.) 05 Aug 2016 23:19:06
Couldn't agree more with chris30 and shugmckie, a hard tackling ball winning midfielder. Flamini wouldn't be the worst shout. There after I think we need a commanding goalie, Gordon is a half decent shot stopper, however is not commanding.

7.) 06 Aug 2016 03:00:34
Bring back the Holy Goalie ;)

8.) 06 Aug 2016 07:12:07
I rather we got an up and coming someone, don't know anything about Sinclair, apart from what I've read, but his career seems to be going in opposite direction.

9.) 06 Aug 2016 08:22:53
the holy goalie was hot and cold also. Remember Begovic goal blunder he was on the other end. Countless times he fluffed it at Celtic also. What about Logan Bailly he was a decent enough keeper I though over Fasan.

10.) 06 Aug 2016 10:16:36
A GK is THE priority now.

Well I think that's our left back problem sorted McGregor was outstanding there last night.




27 Nov 2017 13:22:45
Another trophy well done the hoops, guys a liitle disappointed tho not 1 mention of Gordons save at 1-0 a great reaction save and a game changer.
He gets pelters on here when he makes a mistake so let's praise him when we shud.
So in the immortal words of Delia Smith "lets be havin ye" lol.


1.) 27 Nov 2017 13:38:34
Rayman you've obviously not read all the comments from yesterday because myself and several others have all commented on the save from gordon.

2.) 28 Nov 2017 07:50:35
It was a belter n it came about 15 seconds after ma mate was slaughtering him for his slow reactions hahaha.



23 Nov 2017 15:53:19
There is a saying in life "you get what u pay for", nothing could be more true regarding the CL.
It has now gone to different levels for me, Bayern, PSG. Barca, Real are on different planets to ALL other teams including Man City Juve Man Utd etc and they are spending 100s of millions.
Then there is the next level which would include the above with maybe a Monaco Chelsea, Spurs, Dortmund, Napoli etc.
Then there is teams who we are expected to compete against like Zenit, Benfica, Donetsk, Seville, Milan I could go on, but even these teams are spending 80-100m.
How do we compete against that.
I not moaning guys just putting out the reality of the situation. For me at the minute getting in the CL is a trophy for us cos we have literally no chance of qualifying unless we get real lucky.
Nobody likes getting gubbed but does it benefit us? that's a big YES from me cos not being there is much much worse believe me.
So I would ask stop dissecting our defeats to the likes of PSG etc and concentrate on what we CAN do.


1.) 23 Nov 2017 16:59:41
First of all Man City are better than Real and Bayern (who are really poor at the moment) and are possibly the best team in the world at the moment.

Secondly a Martin O'Neill, Gordon Strachan or Neil Lennon would not be embarrassed like that in Europe. I don't think Celtic should be beating teams like this but they shouldn't be shipping 12 goals in to games. Look at PSG's results in the league against Montpellier or Dijon who they've beaten 2-1 and 2-0.

One win in 11 CL group games isn't good enough for Celtic and is worse than O'Neill, Strachan and Lennon.

2.) 23 Nov 2017 17:02:42
I agree rayman and the financial reward helps us a lot along with a good chance of 3rd place. its just reality.

3.) 23 Nov 2017 17:47:40
Should be renamed 'who's the richest' league because three of the teams mentioned there Barcelona Manchester City and PSG aren't even champions but are all loaded. To get remotely near these teams we need luck on our side because for all I thought SIMUNOVIC and Boyata were horrendous last night . who are we going to buy or afford that would have stopped that? Said before domestic dominance is our bread and butter. How much longer can we continue to ship goals galore before becoming a laughing stock in europe.

4.) 23 Nov 2017 17:52:52
C bear I know you've probably lost track of modern day CL football, but i can tell you the financial gulf now compared to O'Neils Strachans or Lennons day is huge. We could compete better then because we weren't being outspent so hugely back then. PSG had a player on the bench last night that cost roughly twice what the whole Celtic starting 11 cost to assemble. I noticed you hand picked 2 of PSG's worst results of the season ( which they still won) rather than the multiple hidings they've handed out.

5.) 23 Nov 2017 18:01:43
Who did they have on the bench worth 100 million? Financial gulf is no different than Dijon v PSG. I think the players values have now become vastly inflated recently but in not sure the gulf is that different between lennons side and Rodgers team.

6.) 23 Nov 2017 18:19:52
They didn't have anyone on the bench worth 100 million but they had Di Maria who cost 46 million and the Celtic team last night cost roughly 20 million.

7.) 23 Nov 2017 19:27:02
Great Post Rayman99,
While I’m extremely disappointed by the result last night, our target was to qualify for the Europa League/ Cup. We are on course to do that providing we don’t balls it up.
I’m not one who likes to criticise any Celtic Player as I always try to back the Team. But there’s a first time for everything. Hopefully the performance last night shows Brendan must strengthen the Defence. At the moment Boyata and Jozo are good for the Scottish League but the CL is a completely different matter.
This is where the problem lies, we could go out and buy 2 new CB in Jan for say £5m each. We might improve but can we honestly say this will make the difference in the CL?
Getting to the Group Stages is a major achievement but I feel the Europa is our level at the moment.
We just need to hope we’ll learn from this and try to make our Defence a more solid unit, which will take time.
Oh well, looking forward to Sunday. I’m going as my daughter gave me a hard time and basically said we’re going to Hampdump.
We have dreams and songs to sing! 🍀🍀.

8.) 23 Nov 2017 23:20:33
The above posts made me think of the serenity prayer - "Lord grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change and the wisdom to know the difference" I think its fair to say that in the present world Celtic are not going to compete with the PSG's of this world because of the money that have available to them. Of course anything can happen and we will occasionally get a result just a Progres did against the best team in the universe but realistically I think we have to accept that PSG are on a different planet so what do we need the courage to change and perhaps that means that on occasion we need to play with "catenaccio" style of Giovanni Trapatoni's teams. I will however not presume to have the wisdom to know the difference so I will leave that up to Brendan. Anyway a cup on Sunday should help to ease the pain. COYBIG.

9.) 24 Nov 2017 09:36:57
C-bear85 I guess you forgot Barcelona skelped Lennons side 6-1 and strachan lost 5-0 to a team of nobody's in his first season.

10.) 24 Nov 2017 09:54:42
So are we saying that because two £5m defenders that won't make a difference in the CL? Of course it would. What's the alternative? We just say what's the point?

Improving us defensively is vital. If we improve defensively for the CL we increase the likelihood of domestic domination and access to the money.

Four of the goals were defensive balls ups. We need to address this and a keeper is also a must.

Putting us in a position to win 3rd place every year and post Christmas participation, should be our goal and in order for that to be remotely possible means the defence needs gutted.

I thought we threatened them well at times. But when your defence gifts four goals it's too much to overcome. Changes needed to be made in the summer. That it was'nt worries me. This result will be looked back on as a pivotal moment like the semi defeat to Rangers. Everybody knows what needs to be done. There is no hiding place now, sufs in the street know it and I believe Rogers will sort it.

11.) 24 Nov 2017 13:10:52
Magicpole I didn't say spending won't make a difference. You would hope it does but there's no guarantee.
Just look at the money Everton have spend and where are they?
I hope that with good coaching and with our World wide Scouting system we'll pick up a couple of CB gems at a affordable price.

12.) 25 Nov 2017 08:05:25
Who was the manager when Barcelona beat us 6-0, a few years ago?



17 Oct 2017 19:25:31
My Celtic X1;
Gordon, Lustig Jozo Boyata Tierney
Brown Armstrong
Roberts Rogic Sinclair
So my question to all is wud
DeVries Ralston Erik Ajer Miller
Ntcham Koassi
Forrest McGregor Benyu
Win the league?
2nd question would any of the sevco team get in our 2nd team?
Maybe Tav as he good going forward but then again can't defend.
Alves? yep a definitely for me but that's it.


1.) 17 Oct 2017 19:47:10
I think they would, Rayman. Benyu's not been featuring lately and I guess Hayes can play there, so yeah.

The midfield lad fae the other side might get in there over Kouasi at the moment, but I expect he'll kick on.

2.) 17 Oct 2017 20:29:56
Tav is a told bomb scare and I would have ralston over him any day. As for avles he was a player bit he's done. The bhoy fae hibs made a right mug of him.

3.) 17 Oct 2017 20:42:17
Ray jozos out.

4.) 17 Oct 2017 21:46:51
Mally I been known to talk p*** now and again mate but I a sure B. Munich are not in the SPFL lol.

5.) 17 Oct 2017 21:58:00
Ach don't be so hard on yerself chief a have ma moments to.

6.) 17 Oct 2017 23:58:53
With jozo out what's the chances of Erick starting?
Gordon Gamboa Erick Boyata Tierney Brown Ntcham Forrest Rogic Sinclair Dembele.



14 Oct 2017 23:42:21
Been watching sly sports and if they played the De Gea save once they played it a hundred times, yes it was good but it was made with his feet and a keeper that makes a save with his feet will never be a great save.
May I remind all that it was CG who was voted best save of all time in the EPL, along with his save last week against Hibs those 2 saves beggared belief.
So to all his critics and there are many, (even on here) you will miss him when he is gone.
I find it funny that people say he is no Forster etc etc, some have short memories as he got plenty of criticism on here esp for not coming for crosses.


1.) 15 Oct 2017 00:15:21
Difference was that big Fraser was still learning his trade and matured into one of the best keepers in Britain while at Celtic. He got better every season. Craig Gordon is still making the same mistakes as he always has.

2.) 15 Oct 2017 00:32:33
De Gea and big Fraser and Hart and all the other supposedly great keepers still make mistakes, Gordon isn't the only one.

3.) 15 Oct 2017 05:53:06
Not the main point of your argument rayman, but how can a save with your feet not be a great save? Does that come directly from 'the big book of great save rules' or did you just decide that?

4.) 15 Oct 2017 08:29:19
Sly are just trying there hardest to make a game they over invested in look like a super game when in reality it wasn't any better than Clyde vs Stirling just the money is ridiculous in comparison.

5.) 15 Oct 2017 08:38:59
Keepers jobs to stop the ball going in any way he can was a great save. And couldn’t agree more Gordo it’s pathetic the way they build up games and talk them all up and there complete dross! Mibi we should all do the same.

6.) 15 Oct 2017 10:03:55
Wish we would campsie bhoy but our media are only intrested in praising one team where is all the praise for Aberdeen and how great they have started the season you would think sevco where top and unbeaten.

7.) 15 Oct 2017 10:53:58
So Kev, was Forster out commanding his box by the end of his time at Celtic? That was the biggest weakness in his game and still is, so your point makes no sense whatsoever.

8.) 15 Oct 2017 12:02:20
I know its all about opinions NT but I have never seen a save of the season or been on youtube watching brilliant saves etc and the keeper saves it with his feet.
I cannot in living memory recall a save a keeper saving with his feet that was called brilliant, or raved about.
I don't think for a minute if Banks had saved Pele header in the world cup with his feet it would be remembered to this day lol.

9.) 15 Oct 2017 18:26:38
Did anyone see Big FF today he had a mare, palming ball out to striker when it was easier to put it round for a corner then striker beats him at near post.
Can you imagine if CG did that lol, remember big FF is supposed to be worth upwards of 20m I think we did no bad for a keeper who cost nothing.

10.) 16 Oct 2017 08:35:24
I think if banks had made the save with his feet it would be more memorable as he'd have needed 3 legs.

I think most keepers wouldn't have adjusted to save the one de gea made, maybe why it was such a good save.

Aindoh you are talking about a team that won THE most coveted club trophy in world football.
Threfore I would suggest they were ALL world class, and for me the teams of yesteryear have no chance against the super teams of now, football has changed dramatically.

MP isn't achieving success with other peoples players a sign of a good manager?
It proves he can improve players, systems, intelligence etc.
Maybe just maybe he will only bring in players who fit that bill.
While supporters like yourself continually whine about getting players in, its not about getting players in its about getting the right ones in.
