I wonder about our scouting network at times. good young players in Switzerland and Austria for not massive amounts of money. That's where I would be looking for value just now.


1.) 22 Jan 2019 23:17:48
German scouts are all over these leagues mate it is definitely getting tougher.


2.) 23 Jan 2019 01:07:27
I agree with those markets Royjac also other countries like Scandinavia, Serbia and even Holland.


3.) 23 Jan 2019 11:26:29
We have just signed someone from Slovakia and are now heavily liked with a player from Ukraine.


4.) 23 Jan 2019 11:26:46
Plus 2 from america.

With a failed 7million bid for Pannuci last season and a failed 8 or 9 million bid for Castagne in January I would have to say the club are trying to do all they can to improve the the quality of player at the club, I'm also sure that at the end of the season when the few who are out of contract have moved on steps will be taken to improve the squad.


1.) 16 Feb 2019 17:13:59
Absolutely correct royjac, we're in the position at the moment we need to lessen the wage bill before we can add to it again. I'm sure we will spend relatively big on a right back and a centre half come the summer. To better other positions the price tag would be massive and that is if we can attract this type of player to Scotland. People tend to forget we have 9 or 10 very very good players already at the club with a value in the current market of probably around 80 million.


2.) 16 Feb 2019 17:30:15
Some people expect miracles though Stevie haha.


3.) 16 Feb 2019 18:39:09
It's persuading these types of player to come to a one horse footballing backwater that's the stumbling block Royjac but some on here can't seem to grasp that.

P.S. I wonder if we'll hear from Telsa and Daftabet after Sevco's result? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚


4.) 16 Feb 2019 18:10:10
Miracles? 3 years to sign a couple of CBs hahahaha

Aye that's expecting miracles lol.


5.) 16 Feb 2019 18:34:03
Great post and a reminder that we are trying to improve the squad any way we can - within the financial restraints of the club, the location and low-ranked league we play in.


6.) 16 Feb 2019 19:11:44
Guys donโ€™t reply to Tesla it doesnโ€™t matter what you say he wonโ€™t agree with you, only last week he said we had ยฃ50 m In the bank only for the club a couple of days ago saying they. had ยฃ39m. oldkilly.


7.) 16 Feb 2019 23:28:19
Be haters all you like with my comments. Everything i am saying is true.

I pay my season ticket money, I'm entitled to my opinion.

We needed a CB for 3 seasons and our solution was Jack Hendry.

Are you seriously happy with they attempts?


8.) 17 Feb 2019 10:38:02
So you want to stockpile CB's?

Correct me if I am wrong but we have 4, one who has moved from midfield to CB, one who I'd a midfielder that can play at the back and one on Loan. So in all we have 7 guy's that can play CB and you want more? Lol

Ok so Commper and Hendry haven't worked out and the Boyata situation hasn't worked out either, do you honestly think the club won't try and bring decent replacements in?


 

 

12 Feb 2019 11:01:08
When we signed Burke I don't remember many if any at all saying he was a good player, most were saying things like not Celtic class, not good enough, another project and a loan one at that . I wonder if those same people are now eating humble pie? Haha
His signing has been a revelation and I wonder if BR thought it would have been as good?

Once again I will tip my hat to BR I can't think of a manager that gets every signing he makes to be a success but I think he has pulled a rabbit out the hat here and another thing is he is Scottish. Even better :)

Also just reading we are being listed as 21st biggest club in the world, I know it's not anything official but is a genuine marker of our place in world football. Hats off again to the board and everyone connected with Celtic Football Club ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ’š A club like no other.

{Ed007's Note - I think anyone who had previously seen Burke play will have been pleasantly surprised by the player that rocked up at Celtic Park last month. The Ollie Burke we're seeing is a million miles away from the headless chicken that played in Germany where even the RB Leipzig staff questioned his tactical awareness, his intelligence on the park & understanding of the game.}


1.) 12 Feb 2019 12:03:38
He was very young and raw at Leipzig and playing a very high level there for his age.

He isn't technically amazing or maybe even tactically but for our level his speed and strength just let's him bully defenders.

His control of the ball can be a bit clumsy. Can look like he's stumbling at times when running but that's part of the deal fo such a big strong guy being so quick.


2.) 12 Feb 2019 12:37:19
If we could somehow keep him and Toljan that would be massive. The disappointment is we signed 4 permanent players in window ( 2 full backs, winger and CF) and 3 loans and only the loans are good enough at present.


3.) 12 Feb 2019 14:08:34
Chinks we signed the 3 loan players because they were fit and ready to go into first team immediately and influence this season. They certainly have come out flying .
Bayo hasn't played for about 10 weeks and it will be probably another month until we get the real benefit of him . The two Americans are very much project players and we may never see both of them play for first team, but we haven't broke the bank signing them . Finally the fourth full time signing only comes to us in April and could be very useful to us next season .
Our January window was excellent, in short term and medium term.


4.) 12 Feb 2019 14:21:32
Royjac you were probably saying the same yourself, in fact I'm sure you were one of the ones moaning about 6 month loan signings.

His time at Leipzig and WBA he was played out of position, so it's no wonder he had a flat spot in his career.


5.) 12 Feb 2019 15:01:46
Philtim I actually said at first I would reserve judgment until they had played but also said that I recognised they would be good for the club even if it meant giving the likes of Sinky and Forrest a bit of competition.


6.) 12 Feb 2019 19:11:51
Iโ€™m working in Nottingham just now local pub all forest fans they canโ€™t believe heโ€™s same player Iโ€™m banging in about to them.


7.) 13 Feb 2019 17:41:19
Royjac, thatโ€™s another point that Iโ€™ve tried to make on here several times. Even if players donโ€™t play, they can contribute just by pushing the first team players to higher levels.

Hibs away in the cup, will be a tricky tie that. We will have to be at our best ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ’š HH.


1.) 11 Feb 2019 21:56:39
Only won once in our last six visits to easter road.
We are due another win.
Away to hearts in the league in the midweek then away to hibs in the cup so we will need to be at our best.


2.) 12 Feb 2019 14:16:17
No disrespect to Hibs or any other decent Scottish club, but if we can't beat Hibs at Easter Road we don't deserve the treble treble.


 

 

10 Feb 2019 17:25:13
Can't wait for Thursday, the team are doing their part and now it's up to us to do pur part. Let's make Thursday night at Paradise a night those Valencia players will never forget, let's get right behind the bhoys and sing our hearts out to the point they can't hear themselves think. Really looking forward to this one. ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ€ Hail Hail.


1.) 10 Feb 2019 22:46:35
Great post Royjac. The last time Valencia came to CP was one of the best atmospheres Iโ€™ve ever experienced and I hope we can do that again. You can see it really does make a massive difference to the team and our chances of getting a result. A couple of years ago Steven Gerrard admitted that he felt disorientated because of the noise when he played at CP in 2003.


2.) 11 Feb 2019 14:28:24
And slippy will be watching at home with Lourdes and Celtic scarfs with the curtains drawn. :D.

Great 3 points at a tough place to win, well done the hoops.

The eddy incident was surely a foul though so had to be a pen, the defender went in with the studs up. Or am I looking at that through green tinted specs?


1.) 03 Feb 2019 14:48:53
Both eddy and Christie fouled with in seconds of each other.


2.) 03 Feb 2019 14:52:21
"if that was outside the box its a free kick but its not a penalty" another gem fae that fud walker!


3.) 03 Feb 2019 15:02:10
It was a foul and at least a yellow card for studs-tackle, so it should have been a penalty - unless you're Andy Walker or Collum.
The tackle on Burke was also a penalty in any other game.
However, correct decisions and player protection are regularly absent especially in away games, where the establishment are strongest.
The club have remained far too quiet and submissive on these matters in my opinion and the fact we are still winning may be a reason? However, I do not think for one second that rival managers or club spokespeople would stay silent if it was their players that were cluttering up the treatment room like extras from The Alamo.


4.) 03 Feb 2019 15:11:06
Brutal it was.


5.) 03 Feb 2019 15:25:58
IMO a really big reason we are carrying so much injures is because we aren't getting any protection from Referees and your body can only take so much punishment before it has to repair itself But I think that as a football club we need to start highlighting the abuse our players are receiving and don't let the Referee turn a blind eye to issue.


6.) 03 Feb 2019 16:25:32
I can't understand how collum gave a goal kick for the penalty kick incident.
For me he had 2 choices.
One was if he thinks the defender caught Burke then its a penalty and possible sending off.
Two is if the ref thinks the defender got the ball, then its a corner kick.
But not oor wullie. He some how makes up a third option.
Stick to giving whatever team is playing at ibrokes a hat trick of penalties, which you have done twice in your brown nose career. Or maybe we would have had a better chance of getting a penalty off collum if he actually had his back turned and couldn't see a thing.

I wouldn't be paying 4.5 million for this guy like, is he any better than Ralston? I read somewhere that he is good going forward but a bit suspect defensively.

I can assure you lads we won't be bringing in a RB when we have 3 on our books just now ๐Ÿ‘Ž.

Primarily a defender has to defend and command his area and I think the lad McKenna does that well for his age, While I think Ajer is a great prospect I don't think he is too clever defending in the area, Although his distribution is probably better.

I wouldn't sell any of our best players, we want to be building a squad and not selling off our assets. I do agree Ntcham has been off the boil lately, but remember he has signed an extended contract and there will be games where his ability will be required. Maybe when he has 2 years left to go we could offload but not before. Just my opinion like ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ€ Hail Hail.
