A lot of rumours around more defenders. Wanyama mid be great as already suggested we need muscle there. Have ti say i wouldn't have Bitton anywhere near an OF game he dithers and gives the ball away. Sharp passing and quick movement are not in his locker. Broony all day over bitton. We need shoulders in the mid bitton has none.

Agree1 1Disagree

12 Aug 2019 20:00:30
Wanyama would be phenomenal, bring back the immovable object!

12 Aug 2019 23:51:14
We are badly missing someone with a bit of steel in midfield. Hate to say it but Brown has looked very slow in the last few games. Still a good player and is good at dropping back into defence if someone goes forward but if someone gets past him he is struggling to get back, a bit like Lustig in his last few seasons.

13 Aug 2019 01:51:24
Every1 with a brain knows that if the deal to bring wanyama back was possible it would be happening already and would be a no brainer. Wages to big imo and a non starter.

Would absolutely love to be proved wrong here though. Big man would absolutely dominate the midfield and run over every1 in those old firm games.

13 Aug 2019 08:25:48
Would be a great signing. Maybe possible if we could pay £3m loan fee for a season then £30k per week and £10k win or appearance fee bringing him up to the £100k a week mark so Spurs basically get £60k per week of wages paid and we pay the rest while keeping within our budget for fees and wages.

13 Aug 2019 21:51:40
He's a Kenyan
A mighty Kenyan.

13 Aug 2019 21:53:49
Faddy while wages are clearly a stumbling block it’s clear that Spurs have no plans for him and a loan is plausible. If The fact that it was Lennon who signed him in the first place gives us a bit more hope that if he is actually interested then we might be able to push the boat out on this one.

Exciting rumour either way. Him, Gumny and Meling would be solid signings and help solve some of our defensive issues.
Even if we signed Taylor for backup I think that would be an excellent few signings imo.

12 Aug 2019 16:03:52
Norwegian tv saying we are interested in meling.

Agree5 0Disagree

12 Aug 2019 17:17:42
🙏 please be true! 🙏



12 Aug 2019 17:19:03
Would be a fantastic signing but can't see it happening
He is in the last year of his contract though.

12 Aug 2019 17:52:54
Would be delighted with beiling 😃.

12 Aug 2019 18:12:15
Yes please. Get it done!

12 Aug 2019 18:29:09
Would be a good signing and just what we need! That means I can’t see it happening 🤣.

12 Aug 2019 18:34:33
I really hope so.

12 Aug 2019 18:37:40
Didn’t Lennon go to Scandinavia on a spying mission about a month ago?

12 Aug 2019 19:14:36
Can’t remember much of him playing against us, and haven’t seen him play against any1 els, but I’ll go by rest of your comments at he is a really good player. What’s the story behind James Forrest and zenit? More false news I take it couldn’t see him wanting to leave anyway, was just reading about it earlier and see if use knew much about at?

12 Aug 2019 20:32:10
@irishboy I was over in Trondheim last season for Europa league game and hese a player who stood out to me.

12 Aug 2019 20:52:17
Irish did you not notice him when he scored within 15 minutes against us of the it's leg of the champions league qualifier kicking off?

12 Aug 2019 21:37:22
sorry mate I can hardly remember last night and wasn’t even drinking lol I have a short memory about some stuff at isn’t worth remembering. But I go on what some of use say on this and if he’s worth it then hopefully Celtic get the finger out for him, he does sound promising. Let’s hope so because Boli is not a lb, think he will be better lw if he gets the chance.

12 Aug 2019 14:12:00
Afternoon Ed / Bhoys,

I very rarely post any rumours but TWO good friends of mine told me that Spurs are more than happy for Celtic to have Wanyama but it's all about Wages. The other told me the interest in Taylor is concrete and if their is a player coming from LC it is not Benkovic it will be the RB James who they have not longed signed but happy for him to be tested at a higher level (Y)

Agree1 0Disagree

12 Aug 2019 16:11:49
Would love Wanyama back. Can imagine him bouncing Arfield around the midfield.

12 Aug 2019 17:20:50
hope This is true he is built like the terminator, and would destroy their midfield. Ats where we struggled against them last season. we need a Player like him to boss the middle of the park for us against the more physical teams.

12 Aug 2019 18:14:09
Where we list against them last season was they had 3 in the centre to our 2 add to that Rogic was never in the game.

They had far more energy in the centre of the park.

If it were me I would play 3 in the centre of the pitch and dare I say it, it would be brown that would drop out. Although that probably won't happen it's what i would do.

My 3 in the middle would be Calmac, Ntcham and probably Bitton with what we have at our disposal just now.

12 Aug 2019 18:23:59
Brown would start ahead of bitton every day of the week v them for me.

12 Aug 2019 18:44:58
I'm not so sure duff, I would be tempted to try something different next time at the crumbledome. I reckon if we play the same way as last 2 times the result will probably be the same. They will get in our faces, they will out fight us and overrun us in the middle of the park.

12 Aug 2019 19:07:59
I pray that the wanyama one is true, we need someone like him to boss the midfield. Rumours of Meling possibly linked. If we signed those 2 I’d be content. But If Wanyama does come then it won’t be until we know our CL fate.

12 Aug 2019 19:17:36
Brown is the only one who will really put himself about he’s a warrior in the middle of the park experienced and needed specially at ibrox.

12 Aug 2019 19:31:54
I get what you are saying duff but for me he is just too slow now, he just kind of sits in front of the back 4 these days. I think we need someone a bit more mobile in there these days.

12 Aug 2019 19:56:15
If it’s pace mate bitton isn’t that fast either?

12 Aug 2019 21:01:06
Bitton should be nowhere near the midfield, he is too slow, his best position is at centre back.

13 Aug 2019 08:31:15
No way would I have Biton in there at Ibrokes.
Has to be Brown sitting with CalMac and Ntcham in CM
In a 4-1-2-3
I’d actually stick Sinclair on RW cutting inside Tav with Forrest on LW and Eddy up top to be replaced with Griff after 65-75 mins depending on how game is going and French Eddys playing.

12 Aug 2019 09:50:28
Ok bhoys here is what I have. Taylor looking likely, Benkovic not getting a look in at Leicester, loan deal looking likely. Cifuentes deal edging closer.

Agree1 0Disagree

12 Aug 2019 10:12:47
Don't see point of benkovic when Lennon wouldn't play him last time.

12 Aug 2019 10:28:52
Let's hope so Dafabet 🤞🤞🤞.

12 Aug 2019 10:54:41
Kev, I don't blame Lenny for doing that. I suspect he didn't play him because he knew he was going back to The Rat at the end of the season and he wanted to give our lads a game. He was fantastic for us when he played and I'd love him to come back for a season. HH.

12 Aug 2019 10:55:05
Maybe a loan to buy is an option Kev. Fact is we are now short in defence.

12 Aug 2019 11:02:23
Any outs Dafabet.

12 Aug 2019 11:04:56
Like Old Killy posted in the Banter page :- I would prefer not to deal with Leicester City at all and have them looking for 'favours' in return or opening up any business links.

12 Aug 2019 11:11:43
OaB, if Leicester came in and offered big money for any of our players the door would be opened to them and they'd be welcomed in. Same as any other club. The idea that Benkovic or any other player in their squad coming on loan is 'opening up business links' is total nonsense. That's not how it works and anyone running any business will tell you the same. HH.

12 Aug 2019 11:14:21
Bob that would be ok if we weren't going for the title.
For me you play your best players whether they are Loans or not.
Yes we still won title but I can't see benkovic making any serious impact. He only managed 20 games last season (not all 90 minutes) and now I'd say there are more players infront of him.

12 Aug 2019 11:15:08
If it has option to buy then that does change it for the better ken.

12 Aug 2019 11:22:36
Kev, he was a stand out for us when he played. His playing time was restricted because Lenny chose not to play him for his own reasons, not because he wasn't good enough. We often have players on loan. That's how we can benefit from top players without having to pay a big fee for them. If he was here for a season he'd walk into every team Lenny picked if he's fit. Whether there's an option to buy is a completely different matter but the fact you mention it suggests you think he's good enough to be here. HH.

12 Aug 2019 11:30:37
Plus, he played a total of 28 games for us last season. 20 in the league, 4 in domestic cups and 4 European games. That's 40% more games than you claim he played so perhaps he ain't too shabby after all. HH.

12 Aug 2019 11:41:44
He's a good player but lenny was right to play the boys that are here this season. incidently ajer and jozo hardly put a foot wrong so he was proved right. he's injury prone as well.

12 Aug 2019 11:45:23
Bob out of our 4 central defenders he played the least games.
He didn't stand out any more than any other CB and in fact is say Ajer out shone him by miles.
My point at the beginning was that Lennon wouldn't play him before and he was behind Ajer and Simi under Lennon. Now add jullian to that I can see him getting very much game time.
Unless there is an option to buy then I'd say it's a pointless loan.

12 Aug 2019 11:45:23
If we get Benko on loan might be a sign that McGregor will on his way next as makeweight deal Benko and £6 mill for Calmac. obvs not in this window.

12 Aug 2019 11:47:50
Benkovic is a great player but would he be happy being the 3rd choice CB? He isn't going to play before a new 7m signing and I can't see anyone removing Ajer from that starting 11. One of the 1st names on the team sheet for me.

12 Aug 2019 11:51:33
Benkovic would be a great addition but he did seem to get injured very easily. Unfortunate Im sure but still a concern.

12 Aug 2019 11:56:06
4th choice bubs because he's clearly behind big Simi as well.

12 Aug 2019 12:05:40
Callum McGregor is the best footballer at our club. He could play in the premier league no bother. Undervalued completely. If tierney was worth £25m. Then surely Cal Mac would command a fee upwards of that.

12 Aug 2019 12:34:34
Ken, you're right about McGregor. Top lad. The one to keep an eye on at the minute is Christie, I reckon he'll turn out to be at least as good as (if not better than) any other player we have now. HH.

12 Aug 2019 13:02:01
Kev much as Simunovic is playing well just now Benkovic is a better player IMO.

12 Aug 2019 13:07:14
Christie and McGregor should be tied to massive contracts.

12 Aug 2019 13:26:10
How long are they on contracts for, let’s be honest a contract nowadays means nothing, apart from putting the fee up when they move. Although, probably only makes a big difference if they are getting near the last year.

12 Aug 2019 14:06:50
Christie on a 3 year deal. McGregor will be on 4 since he signed a new 5 year contract last year. Or the year before. Not 100% sure but if they both sign again they’ll be up there with the highest paid at the club.

12 Aug 2019 17:58:15
None of them improve the team. Maybe Taylor will out Boil. Squad weaker if that's our business than what finished last season.

12 Aug 2019 19:09:05
Dafabet we only want to know if wanyama is coming 😎

12 Aug 2019 19:52:45
And Melling.

11 Aug 2019 23:32:21
Max Lowe to join before window shuts.

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Aug 2019 11:07:29
Hope your right.

12 Aug 2019 11:54:40
Would take Max Lowe in a heartbeat easily next best player in the league in that position (for me) and good age to improve as well.

11 Aug 2019 21:01:55
Lots of chatter online about a move being completed for Greg Taylor next week for £900k.

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Aug 2019 21:20:32
kevbhoy i always love your intelligence. but is this what we have to look forward to?

11 Aug 2019 21:37:33
Robroy he’s a good player and good back up for elhamad?

11 Aug 2019 21:40:02
Nope Duff and Phelps he is a LB not a RB.

11 Aug 2019 21:46:19
Back up for elmahad? He’s a left back.

11 Aug 2019 21:50:52
Greg Taylor is s left back duff?

11 Aug 2019 21:54:38
Duff, Taylor is a left back. If we really wanted him he would have been signed long before now. He’s a decent player from the little I have seen. I was hoping for better as our second LB.

11 Aug 2019 22:13:26
Duff he's the left back. O'Donnell is the RB.

11 Aug 2019 22:21:12
He would be a good buy.

11 Aug 2019 22:23:22
He's a left back dap.

11 Aug 2019 22:32:17
I don't know an awful lot about him tbh. I don't remember really noticing him for good or bad when we've played Killie but he seems to be very highly rated.

11 Aug 2019 22:45:33
He's a lb so it's back up for boli.

11 Aug 2019 23:03:03
Taylor is a left back so why would he be a good back up to elhamed.

11 Aug 2019 23:04:04
He’s a left back so back up to Boli, we will end up spending 1-2 m on both Killie fullbacks that’ll be us finished 😂.

11 Aug 2019 23:08:50
Taylor has been excellent for Killie for the last few years. If he was called Gregorio Tayloroso and played for a Serie A team and Italy we'd be hailing him as a star. Would KT have been better than him if he'd played for Killie? Why shouldn't we sign him? Playing for a bigger club could very well turn him into a great player so why not us? I'd be all for it. HH.

11 Aug 2019 23:41:45
He not the one that belted Barton about 6 foot in the air?

12 Aug 2019 08:16:50
Wires crossed gents do apologise.

12 Aug 2019 10:30:43
Taylor is a left back so he won’t be back up to Elhamed! Call me cynical but selling KT for 25 million and bringing in Greg Taylor from Kilmarnock won't make our team stronger! If this is lennons ‘contingency plan’ then we’re short changed big time!

11 Aug 2019 08:49:38
Reports from the BBC today that Celtic are interested in Everton and DR Congo winger Yannick Bolasie.

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Aug 2019 09:55:55
Is he any good.

11 Aug 2019 10:33:25
According to reports he's not been the same player since his cruciate ligament injury, also on 80 grand a week so don't see it happening.

11 Aug 2019 11:14:59
Just read Bolasie rumour on some site, came in to see if any truth. When he was at Palace he was immense! One of those players that when you see him live on park he sparks! Occasionally went to Palace games and thought-this guy is a demon! Like RC-he can play as CAM, winger or maybe even CF. 30 yrs but totally amazing signing if it happens.

11 Aug 2019 12:48:19
I totally agree with that Davie when he was @ Palace he was fantastic and would have loved us to move for him then just before the fees went threw the roof. But he has never really kicked a ball at Everton only ever been a bit part player

But a suppose if he was a stick out we would not have a chance of landing him (Y)

11 Aug 2019 14:38:04
Yeah guys, the BIG problem is, he is on £80k per week.

I get the big target man. but I think we need a player say another
£9m-10m striker that is younger, but has experience but has a good few years left on him.

11 Aug 2019 15:37:00
Too many injuries and final ball is dick. Sorry not a good idea in my opinion.

11 Aug 2019 16:47:29
5 star skills on fifa 18 get him signed 😂.

11 Aug 2019 17:38:40
Greg Taylor this week maybe joining according reports?

11 Aug 2019 18:19:35
Hahaha bigD are you a Sevvie scout? 😂 Wages like that will always scupper us!

11 Aug 2019 18:21:09
Better off with Dennis Taylor! If that’s how high we’re aiming I’m worried!

12 Aug 2019 00:52:30
Sarcasm daviebhoy.

10 Aug 2019 10:54:45
Is that a 4 with Ajer at RB or a 3511? I'm surprised at Morgan getting a start ahead of a couple of others. I hope him and Boli turn in better performances today.

10 Aug 2019 10:59:14
Hoping to see bayo do something today. Hope he's a solid centre back 🤣.

10 Aug 2019 11:01:10
Morgan needs a big game if he wants a chance off a good run in the team, I myself don't think he's anywhere good enough but I hope I'm proved wrong.

10 Aug 2019 11:07:32
4 2 3 1 for me

Ajer at RB

If we get a few up throw Bayo on let's get a look rest Grif for during the week (Y)

10 Aug 2019 11:08:48
But scrapping the barrel today with no natural defender on the bench.

10 Aug 2019 11:16:31
Morgan doesn't need a run of games the boy isn't good enough.
Picking him today after his woeful performance midweek just proves that it's personal with Sinclair and not football reason.
Lennon claimed that it was the form of the players in front of him that was keeping Sinclair out.
Today that has been proven to be untrue.

10 Aug 2019 11:18:35
They should also just pay Ralston to leave as he is clearly not wanted. That will free up a space in the squad that Lennon was talking about.

10 Aug 2019 11:27:16
What’s funny is there is def short for cover but we need to get some out before we get in u hope it’s not the def side Lennon is talking about cause we will get suspensions throughout the season so we would be left having to relay on this type of back 4 today. A ch playing rb a midfielder playing ch to help out that’s not going to work.

10 Aug 2019 11:33:04
I think Sinclair has 12-16 months left on his contract. There is no way our board will offer him the same or better terms to extend it, unfortunately I think Lennon is phasing him out. (basically find a new club) I think it’s a big mistake. I’d have no problem with him staying until his contract ended. He’s been a superb servant to this club and Mickey Johnstone could learn an awful lot from him off and on the park.

10 Aug 2019 11:44:45
The way Lennon spoke yesterday would suggest that Sinclair spat the dummy and wanted a move. That would explain why he hasn't been playing.

10 Aug 2019 11:53:36
Ryan sorry but I can't agree. Fae the second Lennon walked in Sinclair has been no where to be seen.

It's Lennon showing who's boss by singling out Rodgers main man.
I was at parkhead when drawing with killie at end of season and he still refused to put Sinclair on. It will be same today if we are searching for a goal.
It will be Christie shved and edourd that are stuck on. Can see it a mile off.

10 Aug 2019 12:26:28
I read every interview yesterday and never seen him say that.
He said he's been unlucky because players in front playing well but that isn't true.

10 Aug 2019 12:36:16
Poor decision by Lennon I think then.

10 Aug 2019 14:29:23
@Kev83 I think it must have been Ntcham he was talking about but the DR website reads like it's Sinclair.

10 Aug 2019 18:32:57
Morgan has zero end product hasn't even scored for us yet and he barely makes the right decision. That butchered cutback was embarrassing today. How he gets in the team over Sinclair cnat have anything to do woth it other than the fact he's Rodgers boy. Shved and Bayo are barely getting a look in either. Clearly getting to Sinclair that he never got his move to England with the afters with the groundsman.

10 Aug 2019 19:06:25
Better watch Aindoh will hunt you down for slagging his bhoy!

Seems nowadays as long as you where a Celtic shirt you can play like a St Mirren player

Another inept performance today from him, Lennon better drop him soon before playing with 10 men costs us.

11 Aug 2019 00:02:52
Bravetart tell me the last time you saw Sinclair

1 get to byeline and put a cross of any sort in?

2 beat his man on the outside or the inside?

3 lay on a goal for someone?

09 Aug 2019 22:24:22
I seriously hope Lennon has a proper left back lined up. We can't continue to sell our best players and not replace then with a similar type of quality. It will eventually catch up with us. Last summer Dembele was sold and not replaced. The new left back from Rapid is very raw and scares the living daylights out of me with some aspects of his game. But on the other hand, the new right back looks solid enough. But with so many changes to the back line it will need time to settle down and build up an understanding with each other.

Agree2 0Disagree

10 Aug 2019 09:48:42
Ye agree but to replace KT we can't gd strong left back need you and strong I was thinking Greg Taylor same as a few others on here. To replace KT At the level and experience he has we can't afford that lads but get a goody young and hungry train him up to our standard we are gd to go.

10 Aug 2019 11:12:15
How much do you think it would be to replace Tierney with sim quality am guessing 25million.

09 Aug 2019 20:06:41
Rumour the Turnbull deal back on.

Agree0 0Disagree

09 Aug 2019 20:26:58
Hope so. Given Arsenal signed KT for £25m and he is recuperating from Op surely we can risk £3m of the £25m on Turnbull if Op was a success as reported.

09 Aug 2019 20:45:54
Surely not?

09 Aug 2019 21:01:24
Dra funny you should mention that because I was in airbles road round corner from Motherwell stadium today seeing a old work mate.
I actually seen him and he's still on crutches.

09 Aug 2019 21:41:45
I've had a sneaky suspicion all along this might happen with Turnbull. HH.

09 Aug 2019 22:10:50
We know he's got the ability, we've seen him at close quarters and are obviously very keen to sign him. We take £3m gambles on the likes of boli so why not take the gamble on his fitness. Its hardly going to burst the bank.

09 Aug 2019 22:46:38
Still in crunches definitely a Jan signing then.

09 Aug 2019 23:23:17
I think Celtic might take him on crutches at this point in the window. Its not been a disaster, yet, but it would go some ways to winning over certain critics and criticisms.

10 Aug 2019 06:21:26
He's 19 he'll heal quick and he'll still have the ability that attracted us in the first place.

10 Aug 2019 09:37:39
Forget Turnbull there are more pressing areas to be addressed just now.

10 Aug 2019 11:43:55
Don’t think I’ve ever seen someone pass a medical and have his photo shoot with a new kit on all in crutches . Be madness if true, we all know Lennie won’t get loads to spend, to use some of it on an injured player is beyond ridiculous.

10 Aug 2019 22:55:22
He is definitely still on crutches . Seen him on Wednesday afternoon in wishaw main street . Not putting any weight on his leg at all .
