Does anyone know how reliable Chris Sutton is for info has said a deal for Meling is nearly done.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Aug 2019 20:10:16
Read another story saying he's not keen since we're not in the Champions League.

16 Aug 2019 20:35:06
Wonder who told him.

{Ed007's Note -


17 Aug 2019 02:17:20
Thought the boy himself said he didn't know anything about any interest from anyone and that he is happy at Rosenborg.

16 Aug 2019 18:27:11
Jordan Ibe deal almost done. Will be signed on loan shortly.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Aug 2019 18:43:48
Can he play full back?

16 Aug 2019 18:44:02
Good signing if true, you heard of anymore definates Dafa?

16 Aug 2019 18:48:23
Eddie Howe has said he is going nowhere and is an integral part of his squad.

16 Aug 2019 19:04:47
Big Sutton’s just sayed we’re close to signing Meling. could have done with him 3 days ago!

16 Aug 2019 19:10:16
Chris Sutton says Meling deal is close.

16 Aug 2019 19:27:25
Aye but how reliable is that info he spoke about PR coming back which am not sure happened the first time he did come or was it after that he said he would be coming back but didn’t not sure how reliable.

16 Aug 2019 19:40:25
Dafa howe stated ibe not leaving.

16 Aug 2019 19:47:43
If it had been done 3 days ago Danny he'd still have been cup tied.

16 Aug 2019 19:59:33
Was Taylor a few days ago.

16 Aug 2019 20:17:04
Good point kev 🤦🏻‍♂️🤣🤣.

16 Aug 2019 23:03:12
Boys he is coming, . Eddie Howe is posturing at best!

17 Aug 2019 13:18:42
No chance Dafabet u could get this right to is there?

16 Aug 2019 11:54:45
So story I heard is that Lennon didn’t want Julian or Bolingoli doesn’t rate them so didn’t play them. Apparently they were sanctioned by PL from previous group.

There was a big pow wow after Tuesday's debacle and a lot of finger pointing took place in the board room DD called for explanations from PL, Now it seams that the KT money was set to be used for transfers but is being re allocated to the club so any incomings will be loans or cheap replacements they are still hoping for 1 or 2 to leave.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Aug 2019 12:13:36
Sensationalist nonsense.

16 Aug 2019 12:16:26
No having that sorry the time it took to get both in suggests the homework was done and he also mentioned he had ear marked elhamed.

16 Aug 2019 12:30:22

16 Aug 2019 12:34:25
If lennon did want jullien why travel to Paris and convince him to sign. yes ground work had seen done but lennon did make an effort to get the deal done.
Boli didn't meet or even speak with lennon until after he was paraded in a Celtic top.

16 Aug 2019 12:37:19
Why did Lennon fly out to meet Jullien personally on his birthday if he didn't want him?

16 Aug 2019 13:17:47
It's got to be wee boys sitting at hame with feck all to do that starts this guff

Lennon has mentioned he is a part of every meeting about signings
As few have a few have mentioned above Lennon made a personal trip to France to lay out his plans to jullian to get the signing over the line.

This should be filed under pile of s***e.

16 Aug 2019 13:57:25
utter nonsense, NL made a James Hunt of the team selection end of .

16 Aug 2019 14:30:25
When there's a gap you always find people who will step in with made up rubbish and put it out there. Anybody who buys it, please feel free to put a bid in for the five magic beans I have.

17 Aug 2019 11:49:34
Yous say this is under a pile of rubbish but does anybody think it’s funny how our new £7 million centre back is still not fit enough to start games?

Find it really hard to believe. Watched him in one game pre-season and he tried to kick the ball above headlight in his own box. Ideally your big centre half would be heading it clear and going through anybody stood in his way.

Was excited by the signing but honestly lads Juliens a dddy, don't put any hope in this or Bolingoli.

We’re being sold up the river and sold a a lot of rubbish. again.

17 Aug 2019 14:10:43
I'll never take this post seriously when the poster has used the term "Pow Wow"

15 Aug 2019 20:51:27
seen a report linking jordon ibe on season loan.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Aug 2019 11:23:32
Just been knocked back by Eddie Howe.

16 Aug 2019 12:03:35
Thankfully don't rate him.

16 Aug 2019 12:03:49
Just seen that howie has rubbishd the rumour, personally we have enough winger at the club just now with Armani on the way back, Shved, Forrest, Johnstone and even Sinclair. I hare to be negative but I just can’t help but get the same feeling as I have the past few windows. We seek to no be getting it done, it’s all went quiet. For me we need to 110% strengthing. I’d take Taylor or merling and go and get the boy O’Donnell. That would but ample cover for the defence. Get a hardy ball winning midfielder in and another component centre back and we will be miles infront if theat lot over there. I would like to see big foster in as well. There are players in the market that you can get for relatively no money that would improve us. It can’t be that hard to get it done when the muppets at the other end of the city are managing on a shoe string. They will challenge us this year and as we stand I am not one bit confident going there at the start of next month.

16 Aug 2019 14:05:19
No chance we will get a merling mabye a gold fish 😂.

16 Aug 2019 15:53:04
Lisbon Lion 67 we got moussa Dembele? He is far from out of our reach. All comes down to his price.

16 Aug 2019 16:37:32
Think Lions post went right over your head Craig haha.

16 Aug 2019 21:29:51
😂 you got it dc.

15 Aug 2019 18:07:41
Bain out, maybe few months, hand injury.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Aug 2019 18:39:54
Now one game apparently.

15 Aug 2019 23:05:50
terrible goalie.

16 Aug 2019 10:10:34
Hes quite obviously not a terrible goalie he has had two bad game. However, I do think we need a new goalkeeper as i feel the two we have have gone stale!

16 Aug 2019 13:20:49
Ian Andrews comes to mind with bain.

16 Aug 2019 16:39:15
He's had more than 2 bad games. Vastly overated goalie who had a decent run of clean sheets last season so everyone thinks he's a world beater. Nowhere near good enough to be celtic number 1.

15 Aug 2019 09:54:06
Anyone heard anything regarding new signing? Would've though something would've been leaked to boost morale in the support.

Agree4 0Disagree

15 Aug 2019 10:08:00
Izaguirre and Anthony Stokes having medicals this morning.

15 Aug 2019 11:22:16
What signings! If any it will be SPL players

Lawell and his puppet manager taking the mick. Don’t worry though after we win this cup game at the weekend all will be ok 🙄.

15 Aug 2019 11:25:15
Won`t be signing anybody, Strachan out already briefing for the board this morning in the sun, no panic buys needed, board will stay calm, same old crap year in year out and they get away with it.

15 Aug 2019 13:09:34
What do we need new signings for? Lennon won't use the feckin new ones we just bought for £10,000,000!

15 Aug 2019 14:02:30
We still have enough time and money to end the window with a much stronger squad but do we have the ambition?

15 Aug 2019 14:22:04
Celtic going to sign? Or maybe even @@@@@ who really knows I don’t think they even knows. Team for next game maybe?




15 Aug 2019 14:33:57
Not with this board. We need a fan owned club or atleast 2 or 3 members on the board who can take our questions to them and give us honest answers as to why we are getting the right players on and why Lawwell continues ro interfere with signings.

15 Aug 2019 14:36:21
Anybody got Big Sammy's mobile number :-) ?

15 Aug 2019 16:15:45
Maybe one more in but doubt it with this board. Business should be done start of window so team and new players can settle.

15 Aug 2019 16:54:37
This season of all seasons they’re messing around I think they’ll no about it from the support if it goes wrong.

15 Aug 2019 17:31:15
The green brigade will have a banner sorted by the next qualifier. No doubt it’ll be slagging Lawwell.

15 Aug 2019 17:59:36
Jordan Ibe Bournemouth on loan.

15 Aug 2019 23:19:16
the green brigade do a great job. but now it needs to be taken to the next level. lawell pisses on us every season with excuse after excuse. i think for next season the season book renewal should be after the window closes, then if your happy renew, if not you dont. but us sitting on our arses moaning but doing nothing is going to cost us big time.

16 Aug 2019 11:27:01
👏👏👏robroy classic suggestion don't renew till September even though our season starts in july.8 in a row champions and you effectively want a boycott🤯.

16 Aug 2019 12:00:07
Seen Samaras and ambrose getting out a taxi at lennoxtown! New signings, u having a laugh! What do we need them for! Not like we need them or anything! They’d probably just sit on the bench anyway!

16 Aug 2019 12:44:10
jim the season books are sold out. money has been guaranteed by supporters. pedro knows this and doesn't give a toss. but hey mate you sit and think all is well. come back on when it goes tits up and say the same.

16 Aug 2019 14:53:25
I'm not a Fairweather supporter like some if it goes tits up I'll still be there. I'll support Celtic wether we win 8 in a row or not away and join in with hysterical sack fans. HH.

16 Aug 2019 23:49:46
jim can you honestly say you are happy with this window? and can you hand on heart say you were impressed on tuesday. this is one of the biggest seasons in recent history and we flaff about like this. come on we are better than this.

What is that 3 -2 4 - 1?

13 Aug 2019 18:37:54
Looks like we are going all out attack. Good team can see us getting a few tonight, just hope we don’t concede early and make it bit nervy for ourselves. c'mon the bhoys let's show why we deserve to be in the champions league tonight!

13 Aug 2019 18:39:22

Elhamed. Ajer. Simunovic
Brown. Ntcham
Forrest McGregor Christie Johnston

13 Aug 2019 18:39:46
It's 3 at the back then and flood the midfield. 👍☘.

13 Aug 2019 18:48:01
Wtf has happened to our left side?

13 Aug 2019 18:48:44
Great minds bhoys 😜🍀👍.

13 Aug 2019 18:50:01
Was in Romania last week and they exploited our left side.

13 Aug 2019 18:50:03
3-5-1-1 looks like to me

A bit risky if you ask me, could be exposed on the flanks.

13 Aug 2019 18:56:08
@KenLikeEh, Lenny has said recently that he likes Ntcham in a more advanced role so I reckon McGregor will sit beside Brown.

13 Aug 2019 18:56:14
Strange to me but I like it hope it works.

13 Aug 2019 19:00:54
Was at the game in Cluj last week and got exploited down wings.

13 Aug 2019 19:01:20
See if wee play this formation at ibrox wee will blitz the midfield battle and win the game fact!

13 Aug 2019 19:04:14
How long does people think I will take Lennon to work out that Morgan just isn't good enough?

13 Aug 2019 19:09:32
We will have to see what the new formation is like tonight D and P but I agree if it works tonight.

13 Aug 2019 19:11:40
4-2-3-1 Calmac LB.

13 Aug 2019 19:28:03
No way would I go to ibrox without a left back on the pitch. The are strong down that side.

13 Aug 2019 20:09:27
Mcgregor wasted in this formation.

13 Aug 2019 20:42:07
We are playing rank rotten.

13 Aug 2019 21:43:44
Well we got what we deserved tonight for not making signings when we should have strengthend the full back positions and was big jullien not playing.

13 Aug 2019 22:02:42
Exploited last week lost 1 goal. mcgregor was dugrubbish tonight at lb should’ve learned that we can’t take him out the midfield and expect same midfield if he played left back he’d be Calvin miller. board, Lennon should hang the heads.

13 Aug 2019 22:23:34
Lennon said a couple of weeks ago we had a plan if tierney left, was it playing our best midfielder there? Weakening two areas of the team.

13 Aug 2019 14:11:27
Big o'dea in talks to join coaching staff.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Aug 2019 16:10:30
It's to replace duff in the youth system.

13 Aug 2019 20:42:31
Where did duff go.

13 Aug 2019 23:16:12
So we knew for weeks maybe even a month or more than Tierney would be sold if Arsenal met our valuation so instead of having plan A, B, C and D ready to be approached we played a player out of position and just hoped it would be ok.
Great strategy let’s sell our best LB for £25m then lose £30-40m by not having a LB for Champions League qualifiers.
Basically we have just punted KT and are worse off financially and a good player down.
Actually an embarrassment they have been in Europe once in past 6 seasons and lost to s team from Luxembourg!
New signings better be brought in soon or we will get ripped apart for 3rd game in a row at Ibrox, we haven’t got near them they will bully us in middle, press us into making mistakes and rip us a new 1 down both FB positions if we don’t get finger out.

14 Aug 2019 22:16:57
Too right we will.

13 Aug 2019 09:51:28
Reports in Norway saying there is no interest at the moment from Celtic for meling.
I think it's more likely Taylor Celtic will go for. very highly rated knows the league so could go straight in to the starting 11.
It wouldn't be a bad move imo.

Agree3 0Disagree

13 Aug 2019 10:42:54
I agree Jj
Because Taylor isn't a big name many fans are saying he's Tom Kite. He has been excellent for Killie and I think a move to a bigger club would bring him on leaps and bounds. He's young, he's a strong player and I have no doubt he'd love the move to Paradise. I asked the question before: would KT have been as good a player as he was if he had been playing for any other SPL side? HH.

13 Aug 2019 11:31:24
Wouldn't call Melling a big name bob.

13 Aug 2019 12:34:47
The Rosenberg manager is quoted saying he will leave and most if the written press have run this story. yoy never know they just might be right for once.

13 Aug 2019 12:37:46
Well lots of people are raving about him as the next Messiah. I've no doubt he's a good player, all I'm saying is people shouldn't write off Taylor because he's from the SPL. HH.

13 Aug 2019 13:33:54
Think a lot are raving about him because we've actually seen him and he stood out like a sore thumb.
He also has plenty experience of winning titles playing internationals and playing in Europe. He's 1st ready.
Taylor is definitely a good player as well with experience in Scotland but will he be good enough to walk straight in to our team?
I don't know. He could be a star or he could need a few years like Christie did.
But end if the day every signing a gamble.

13 Aug 2019 13:58:54
Totally agree Bob, we got Brown from the SPL and Griffith's HH.

13 Aug 2019 14:07:47
Not seen much if Taylor but size wise he looks quite small.

13 Aug 2019 14:09:12
We didn't get Griffiths from spl AGG.

13 Aug 2019 14:38:01
I would even go as far as to suggest getting Melling and Taylor which would allow boli to be moved further up the pitch.

13 Aug 2019 14:38:18
How good is Taylor, have to admit I haven’t seen much of him . When we have played Rosenborg meiling has looked their best player.

13 Aug 2019 15:44:17
I think Taylor is a very decent prospect indeed, not quite 1st team ready although you never know.

Melling is good enough to go straight into the team.

13 Aug 2019 15:56:24
My mistake Kev83, he was only on loan at Hibs.

13 Aug 2019 17:42:25
I've seen Meling a fair bit both in the Norwegian league and for the national side, he would be brilliant for us. He's not the biggest of lads though.
With Rosenborg still potentially able to qualify for CL themselves, I doubt them letting him go. they don't really have any good backups in their squad either, and haven't heard any rumours about them linked with any decent defenders.

13 Aug 2019 21:45:12
Melling stood out everytime we have played them.

12 Aug 2019 22:26:54
Story on Video Celts about us being interested in Robert Gumny. If we got him and Meling that would sort both postions out.

Agree1 0Disagree

13 Aug 2019 06:14:40
I’d be buzzing if we got both 👍🏼.

13 Aug 2019 06:36:22
Have to admit I'd be really happy about both these guys coming in.

13 Aug 2019 09:12:05
For me that would be the defence sorted.

13 Aug 2019 09:29:06
I don't watch other football just celtic but that lb for rosenborg really stood out anytime we played them.

13 Aug 2019 09:36:09
We've been linked with him for about 4 years and both i g seems to happen btw would meling be cup tied for Prague games presuming we make it.

13 Aug 2019 13:16:25
Fingers crossed this is true. Can't see that amount being spent to bring in both.
