4-2-3-1 Ed? Or the midfielder up front thing again? Good to see Forrest back on the bench hopefully he gets a run out try build his fitness up for 2 weeks time.

{Ed007's Note - It'll be one of them but I'm hoping it's not 1 up front. Forrest was pencilled in to be on the bench against Aberdeen and to start today but he obviously didn't make it, hopefully he will get his fitness up over the next 2 weeks.}

Still not going with two recognized strikers and sticking with the under-performing Christie; it's like NL is still picking the team.

Clyde one last night one of the pundits he's a writer Mark Queedy spelling bad there. Claims that JK has a really good chance of being next manager but at this moment i think my gran has as much a chance as everyone has at this moment.

It's the usual bollocks from reporters like during a transfer window, they have no clue and just use the scatter gun approach so if in a few weeks one of there names come up they can go with the old "As I exclusively broke the story on the ***"

Narc guidi a think but I always thought he was a Tim, may be wrong, if Kennedy gets it look for st sales to plummet do the board really want that.

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Mar 2021 17:05:43
I always thought Guidi was a Tim, anywhoo, agree with you all that the 'media' have no clue what's going on at CP and they don't like that.

And apparently there's a 40 % sell on fee due to psg, hope this is paper talk.

Agree0 0Disagree

05 Mar 2021 08:31:42
This been said before I doubt we'd pay 9 million and add that in not good business sense.

Agree0 0Disagree

05 Mar 2021 09:15:05
The percentage is on the profit of the sale so IF IT was 15 million it would be 6 million the percentage will be on.

Agree0 0Disagree

05 Mar 2021 10:48:31
35 million would be closer to the mark.

Agree0 0Disagree

05 Mar 2021 12:39:57
Aindoh, He's 100% worth that. But its unrealistic to expect teams to pay that with him in last year of contract, added to the fact teams don't have the same money to spend as a result of C.V. I think we will see a very different summer window to the norm.

I do struggle to believe the 40% sell on rumors' also.

Agree1 0Disagree

05 Mar 2021 13:36:27
I would rather hold onto him and let him go for free, than sell him and pay a lot of money for somebody else who turns out to be useless at putting the ball in the net.

Agree1 0Disagree

05 Mar 2021 15:02:52
That would probs be the most logical option for the fans but don't think the board will see it that way. Also think the player will force a move, wherever that may be.

Lets just hope we can pick up someone else of his caliber with the fee. 8-10m can get us quality if we recruit well.

Agree0 0Disagree

05 Mar 2021 16:50:56
If we hold on to him I think he will down tools and take the huff. He wants a move he's slowly missing sitters passing woefull getting kinda greedy. Sell him now.

Agree0 0Disagree

05 Mar 2021 18:07:56
£15 million is about for a player nearing the end of his contract and who wants out.

The £15 million will be £10 million and £5 million in clauses so Leicester (or another) would pay £1 million and £9 million over 5 years, assuming he signs a 5-year contract.

That means any pay-on clause of 40% (and I have seen figures suggesting 25% also) would be 40% of any profit based on the £10 million up front (doesn’t mean one lump sum, simply that part of the fee not subject to clauses) .

Agree0 0Disagree

05 Mar 2021 23:50:42
Don't think he has ever said he wants away, think that had been speculation because an underperforming team/ midfield hasn't provided any supply/ support, to Eddy, and he becomes the one that becomes criticised, whereas the real culprits get off Scot free, keep Eddy till his contract runs down, let him help us go further in Europe, when he goes shake his hand and wish him all the best,

Agree0 0Disagree

See Jack hendry being linked with Burnley, he's obviously doing something right.

Believable1 0Unbelievable

04 Mar 2021 18:01:43
I've been as harsh on him as anybody and deservedly so in my opinion but if he's come on leaps and bounds, and a deal hasn't been agreed with another club yet, then I'd be happy enough for the new manager to run the rule over him in the summer.

Agree2 0Disagree

04 Mar 2021 18:40:12
Don't know kev but all the reports are excellent. it took ajer to go on loan and learn the trade, who knows he might be worth keeping if we can.

Agree1 0Disagree

04 Mar 2021 20:24:01
When I watched him before, he had all the attributes to be a good centre back, then a mistake comes and he loses it for the game and the crowd get on his back, putting more pressure on him.
If as he’s got a bit older, and a bit more experienced he may turn out a better player, hopefully under a new coach who improves players can have a look at him. With all the players going back or leaving, we may need him for the qualifiers .

Agree0 0Disagree

04 Mar 2021 22:53:27
I might be wrong but I think our ship has sailed with Hendry. My understanding is that a fee has been agreed with Oostende as part of the original loan deal and if they want to sign him for that fee then the deal is done. They could sign him on day one of the Summer transfer window and sell him to another club for more the next day. HH.

Agree0 0Disagree

05 Mar 2021 00:53:35
Still needs Hendry to agree personal terms though. If he knows he has a shot at Celtic he may want to come back.

Agree1 0Disagree

05 Mar 2021 07:20:59
Always get the Benny hill tune in my head. When Jack Hendry is mentioned the night at Partick Thistle was hilarious 😂😂😂😂.

Agree1 0Disagree

05 Mar 2021 12:06:00
This is a funny one for me. If it was reported we were siging one of the best CBs in Belgium we would all be quite happy with that but it being hendry fans are binning the idea straight away.
Was he thrown in to early then hung out to dry?

Agree1 0Disagree

05 Mar 2021 12:40:58
Possibly kev but like ajer needs time, we expect our young players to hit levels they ain't ready, so by a accounts he's ripping up a far superior league to ours.

Agree0 0Disagree

05 Mar 2021 20:07:50
I say get him back for sure, I thought he had decent attributes for someone untested playing for a club like Celtic. I always remember BR saying the plan was to bring him in and develop him over time, that sadly never happened due to our defensive troubles he was thrown in too early maybe.
Get him back and give him a chance.

{Ed007's Note - Thankfully Hendry doesn't want to return to Celtic, the fee and his contract is agreed with Oostende and it was the player that pushed for the option to buy as he is fed up moving around.
Even if Hendry could come back would you want the Club to give him an extended contract as he only has a year left on his current one?}

Agree0 0Disagree

Got a funny feeling we might get an announcement tomorrow about our new leader. Hail hail.

I would wait until the day they win the title and parade the new man. Also, once restrictions are relaxed, I would arrange for a Quadruple Treble Civic Function to honour The Hoops historic achievement.

Won't happen until the league is gone.

Depending on our result on Sunday i think we might hear something but prob won't until we win the SC and JK might have too watch what he's doing in the shower after the game.

Agree0 0Disagree

04 Mar 2021 20:32:42
I reckon IF they already have someone sealed, they’ll announce it on the day of the derby.

Could that be Dominic Mckay coming in early Stealy.

Steve Clarke said that he will be taking a long holiday after the Euros and wants to lead Scotland to the World Cup in 2022.
He'd look silly if he backtracks on such an adamant statement.
He won't be coming to Celtic however I never thought he would anyway after what he said about protecting himself and his family from the sectarian hatred in Glasgow. HH.

Reports are suggest Celtic have made contact with Eddie Howe.
I never felt Eddie Howe was a possible target because he’s been available since last August.
If that’s the Celtic boards first choice, then why have they delayed the approach.
He should’ve been appointed last November at the latest.

Agree2 0Disagree

03 Mar 2021 11:37:20
Unless he wanted to come in at the start of a season rather than mid way through a shambolic one BB? Tbh I don't think think the board would have sacked NL in November anyway. I'd imagine around Jan though they might have approached possible targets.

Agree1 0Disagree

03 Mar 2021 11:56:06
Buzz
Maybe he didn't want to take over a Cluster **** of a season.
He may also be the manager that was rumoured to have said that he would take the job but wouldn't work with Lawwell.
Personally I still think its Keane who will be announced in the next couple of weeks after Sevco win the title.

Agree2 0Disagree

03 Mar 2021 12:04:50
Buzz they need to get a director of football in place befire or the exact same time as a head coach.

Agree2 0Disagree

03 Mar 2021 12:34:50
Clarke also said later in the interview he’s looking forward to the Euros and then we’ll see what happens after that. He’s not going to come out in the press and say he’s interest in the Celtic job. I certainly didn’t take from his comments that he’s ruled himself out of the Celtic job.

Agree0 0Disagree

03 Mar 2021 13:06:16
Steve Clarke would be a horrendous Celtic manager. His style of football is terrible. Aye we’d be able to defend, but no one would pay to watch it. Scotland have been pretty crap under him as well. Struggled in those groups and won penalty shootouts. Overlooked by the relief of finally reaching a finals.

Agree3 0Disagree

03 Mar 2021 13:07:21
DoF will have to be in place before a new manager IF we are looking at bringing in a DoF that is.

They backed lennon so how could they go for howe.

03 Mar 2021 14:00:24
How could they go for Howe? They phone his agent.

Agree1 0Disagree

03 Mar 2021 14:33:02
I think Howe would be interested but I also think Howe will wait to see if there's a job (like the crystal palace one) comes up this season down south. Even a newly relegated team like sheffield utd etc.

Agree0 0Disagree

03 Mar 2021 14:40:40
So you want celtic to phone about another manager when they have one.

Agree3 0Disagree

03 Mar 2021 20:14:31
I just don't see Howe coming. I think it'll be someone like Keane and I think that's an awful appointment if I'm honest.

Agree0 0Disagree

03 Mar 2021 20:20:07
Mally are you just trying to be argumentative or are you really that naive?
Football clubs will talk to other managers while they have a manager in place all the time.
Celtic even spoke to strachen to ask him to take us over till the end of the season at the end of November.

Agree0 0Disagree

03 Mar 2021 23:00:17
If Clarke gets the Celtic job I’ll be looking for a new team. The guys football is the worst I’ve ever seen. He’s not doing a good job with Scotland despite the furore over the jammy qualification.

Agree0 0Disagree

03 Mar 2021 23:02:19
It’s amazing how many Celtic fans have such a low opinion of Celtic that they think we can’t attract a decent manager.
They must have been asleep when we had MON and Rodgers.
Did Rafa go to China because it’s a footballing hotbed, or did he go for the money? If Celtic offered Rafa or Howe enough money they’ll come. If Celtic offered Slippy enough money he’d come.

Agree0 0Disagree

03 Mar 2021 23:51:33
What manager do we have Mally? Are you suggesting Kennedy should get the job?

Agree0 0Disagree

03 Mar 2021 23:54:44
Celtic never spoke to Strachan about taking over until the end of the season. That’s a fact.

Agree1 0Disagree

04 Mar 2021 00:35:37
Says you my god pot kettle . so celtic are phoning other managers while we have one. if so why hasn't it been leaked . there must be a name . who kev.

04 Mar 2021 08:00:52
Degsy76. I think some managers won't come to Glasgow because of the abuse and the sectarianism, which in this day and age I don't blame them. Scotland is recognised all over the world for bigotry.

Agree0 0Disagree

04 Mar 2021 08:03:21
Maybe the DOF could be MON and new coach Keane.

Agreed Kev as Lawwell no doubt hampered him. Might be the new manager/ DOF wants his own guy though.

Agree0 0Disagree

02 Mar 2021 16:50:13
Good news if Hammond is away aswell. Another disaster out the door. His signings have been brutal.

{Ed007's Note - Hammond didn't decide who we signed. If it was up to Hammond Toney and Omar Colley would have been here, he also had Everton's Lewis Gibson and possibly Mark McKenzie lined up.}

Agree0 0Disagree

02 Mar 2021 17:05:12
People seem to think that it was Hammond that signed all the players we brought in. The only people responsible for the players that we signed were Lawwell and Lennon.

{Ed007's Note - The final decision was Lawwell's.}

Agree1 0Disagree

02 Mar 2021 17:11:28
Hindsight is a wonderful thing. At the beginning of the season we had signed a £5m Greek international goalie, a Uruguayan international left back from AC Milan, a no nonsense centre half from the EPL (which most fans craved) , arguably the best young talent in the country in Turnbull, a £16m midfielder on loan from the EPL and a £5m Swiss international striker from the EPL. On paper it looks like very good business. Fast forward 9 months and apart from Turnbull the rest have failed to be a success in my opinion. Barkas and Duffy in particular have been a disaster. However before a ball was kicked that’s looked like pretty good business in my opinion.

Agree1 0Disagree

02 Mar 2021 17:41:57
Yeah his record at previous jobs backs up Hammonds credentials. Worse head of football we've had and we had
Lee Congerton suits everyone's agenda to blame Lawell/ Lennon.

Agree0 0Disagree

02 Mar 2021 20:33:42
It’s hard to judge them really as we aren’t sure how much has been taken out of their hands . Even congerton who Auf referred to, on paper signed us some duds . And yet Rogers took him to Leicester, he signs two players that we wanted apparently ( castagne and James Justin ) who both look excellent . Like a few others have stated, lawell obviously had the final choice which obviously came down to what he thought was the cheapest option. Both of these ( chief scouts) may have actually put forward loads of decent players that was brushed aside due to perceived costs.

Agree0 0Disagree

02 Mar 2021 21:30:51
What was the point in appointing Hammond if lawell wasn't going to back his judgment, wasted wage.

Agree1 0Disagree

03 Mar 2021 11:10:07
I always wondered why lawell decided what players we signed
Lawell is a businessman not a football man.
