I know it's very much early on in the crazy transfer season but looking at two 19 year old centrebacks 1) vušković Croatian and 2) Hincapié. I suspect they are both on a list rather than being approached at the moment. But if they're decent around first team quality it'd a good start.

Jullian back, Welsh, and two of these young guys (maybe even have ajer through the start of the qualifiers) , wouldn't be a bad start to building the defence.

Also apparently there was Rosier 24 year old French right back and hickey being looked at. I'd say that was a good start to working on our defence. Just need to get players in and deals over the line.

Once the defence is sorted need to start looking at that attacking line. I'd like dembele offered at least another year and an option to extend if he gets at least half this season game time. Would be good to see a young energetic team as opposed to what was on display last season.

Hopefully next week or 2 we will see transfers coming in.

Under the deposed messiah, we got humiliated in Europe because couldn't put a defence together thst could cope out with the league here. Every defensive signing he made was an absolute dud. If we bring in guys who can actually play there, and jump, that might change. The gap was shown when we shelled the sevco pub team 5 0 then met Barcelona who tore us a new one over there. We need to buy defenders who can defend and attack. We don't have a single one at the club and need to spend money there or we are in trouble.


2.) 26 Jun 2021 14:10:36
Agree that solid defenders are a must and IMO we need 5 of them - GK/ CB x2/ RB/ LB.


3.) 26 Jun 2021 14:17:38
If he doesn't address that he's giving himself an impossible task. Aoart from Julien, we don't have a single defender who should be first pick in any defence that will improve us. Back up at best. Even then, a risk.


4.) 26 Jun 2021 15:00:32
I think we need at least 2 decent centrebacks. Ideally younger is better. But you do need a wiser head to lead them at the back. Definitely need a decent right back and maybe a youth player coming through. We also need a step or two up from Taylor as left back. Taylor is capable of playing in the league but not as our regular. Once we get the back line in shape I think it's time to tackle the attacking side of our game.


5.) 27 Jun 2021 15:48:32
Our first 2 signings going into these qualifiers have got to be a centre back and a new right back.
I know buying younger players then developing and selling is our model and I'm not against it but right now at this stage is that what we need, young guys who are still teenagers who probably can't speak the language and from a different culture are expected to walk straight in and make a difference?

A perfect example of this is when we signed van dijk. Think he was 22 and was thrown straight in against shakhtar karagandy away and we lost 2-0 and he was dropped for the 2nd leg which we just won, I think it would be unwise to go down that road at these early stages and expect them to hit the ground running.

I'm not saying we shouldn't go for them I just think we should be looking closer to home at guys with at least some level of experience and preferably euro experience, that's the type of players we need right now if we want to have a chance of making a go at getting through these qualifiers.


6.) 27 Jun 2021 19:16:54
Taylor is one of the worst full backs I've ever seen absolute balls.

Wanted to get back to transfer activity as the mad month approaches. Is there any transfers we know are likely coming our way. I have said I'd of liked a decent centre back, even better right back and a left winger to challenge or even out do Sinclair on the opposite wing. Saying that we've got one centre back coming in (unsure of the quality and Europa league cup tied) and news on a right back? How about musonda?

Don’t want Musonda if it’s a loan

Sign permanently or stay a prospect in the EPL reserves.


2.) 31 Dec 2017 19:37:14
Hate loans unless u can buy.


3.) 31 Dec 2017 21:19:59
I'd take a player on loan for 18 months if it's to benefit our chances in Europe. It's not always about making money on player but progressing as a team at a competitive level.


4.) 01 Jan 2018 01:47:54
A right back? Bring back adam matthews. Recently watching the team at throw ins has been brutal.


5.) 01 Jan 2018 10:22:36
PMCF I liked Matthews but I'm sure he scrutinized the club when he left. I think we could do better.


6.) 03 Jan 2018 03:24:57
We need to be more dangerous from set plays, but I don't think Adam mathews is the answer.


7.) 03 Jan 2018 23:16:12
If we hadn't played 10 games more than any other team in SPL . We would have 30 full days to train and practice set pieces . I am sure that would make us more dangerous from them.

It's a combination of injuries, not having the right players in positions. Our midfield of rogic and turnbull doesn't work well together. They are to similar. We are missing mcgregors deep lying playmaker attitude but also his drive. We also haven't replaced Christie with a box to box midfielder. Christie took over that role from Armstrong and our midfield is missing this type of player. So our midfield isn't working well at the moment. But even worse is the disaster centre forward We have. I seen a comment on soro. Ajeti is even worse. He doesn't move enough to score goals in Scotland or England hence why he was punted from Westham. We need a striker who will stretch defences not park his ar$e and wait for the ball to come to his feet. I still have faith in Ange but we need a solution quick.

Never managed to watch the game yesterday due to work. Seems a bit extreme to be hounding Ange 6 league games into a season 4 points off the top. More goals than anyone. Conceded joint bottom. We've been beaten 3 games by a margin. The games we lost we've had key players missing. Ontop of that in those games we dominated were just unfortunate. Plenty of games to go. We are in the middle of a rebuild.

I don't think we're going to see miracles in the matter of months. But he has the team trying to play positive football. We don't have the greatest depth to our squad and are lacking some key personnel. I genuinely think that's its going to take a good few weeks even months to ensure we are in the right direction and it will take more than 1 transfer window to build this squad. Have some faith.

Judge him over the 2 transfer windows and on field performance is minimum theleague title.
He still has time and I hope he can fix his managerial naievity on the back line and substitutions. then he’ll be here next season.

Got to say I'm quite happy with the transfer market outcome. We spent a few million. We brought in a decent number of players and the standard seems not to bad so far.

We've lost 3 decent players in Eddie, Christie and Ajer. Not to mention some of the players that have left and returned from loan. Felt Christie was returning to the player we know he can be. However I'd rather the players that pull on the hoops are here to play for the badge. It's notable these things go in cycles and it's time for a new cycle at Celtic Park.

The football we have been playing is positive. I had a feeling about the outcome on Sunday, but felt we were the much better team, just a 20 minute lapse in concentration. For a team to be assembled in 6/ 7 weeks play the football we are playing I think we can only go in a positive direction. I can say confidently if things remain in this direction the league will be home. By mid October, 10 games into the season, I think we'll see our strongest team and the type of football Ange is really wanting us to see.

Looking forward to it. Keep with the positivity. Hail Hail!

Christie had a few good games but missed AZ at home and was average over there and back to last seasons form on sun although he did put in a shift.

Christie has apparently always wanted to play for Bournemouth, his dream has come true.

Christie gave the ball away that much I thought he was playing for them.

Well dom did exactly as he said he would and ba KED the manager, also glad big ange can hold his hands up when he makes a mistake uike lennon who it was never his fault.

I don't think we need to be negative about that results. A strong rangers side against a team thrown together I the space of what 6 weeks. Look at the stats we dominated much of the game. We were slow off the blocks at the start of the 2nd half and beaten 1-0 by a set piece. This was a team that beat us 4-1 last time. The stadium was full with there fans. They dominated on their home ground last season.

If eddy scores different. Game if forrest was fit we have the chance to change the approach to the game. A lot of ITS.

If, If 7 games we have failed to best them. A manager who can't change a game and players who continually rubbish it on the big stage.


2.) 29 Aug 2021 20:23:48
Auf that's an over reaction. We have plenty of games this season still 2 or 3 players to be added. Still to establish our strongest 11 and the new style of play. I think we've done not bad considering back in June most of us were expecting to be skelped this season if we didn't get the right players in on time. I wasn't as optimistic about this game as much as others. But I genuinely do believe that after watching that game and our games so far that we will win the league this season. I'm going do say we should be looking for the double.

Anyone got any news on what's going on?

Another week gone by no official announcement of a management team. We keep talking about a D. O. F. yet there seems to be no mention of this either at least a DOF could get started in the transfer market.

The media seems to be doing everything to target Ange between not having credentials, not having UEFA licence, having to self isolate and latest I've seen is having to adjust to time zones. Embarrassing from MSM. Not even in the continent never mind country and they're slandering the guy at any chance.

I suspect he is the man we'll get, reading up on him seems to be a risk but one who has decent enough experience to give it a shot.

With the mass exodus already starting it would be good to start to hear players coming in and an idea of who's coaching and what direction the club will be taking next season, the silence is deafening and in fact quite scary as a supporter. The club looks disjointed, disorganised, disregarding of fans and resembles nothing of the last two decades. This season will be a true insight to the boards belief and expectations of the club and what the future of the clubs holds.

we were always going to start this season at a disadvantage with a huge rebuilding of the squad for various reasons the shadow of failure hanging over us from last season and Brown's departure.
Now we have delay, dejection and uncertainty over a new manager and as reported, more players determined to leave the club.
Across the river will be brimming with confidence even though they bottled it in both cups, but our implosion was their wildest dream of 'Stop-The-ten' and it was mostly our own doing.
It's been long understood that the club functions as a business with or without a manager in-situ, so although there has been instances of major incompetence from The Board in recent times, I would hope we are working hard on recruitment?

Is it not a weather related plan. Trying to get players to travel to lennox Town in winter when it's snowing or icy is dangerous, whilst access to Barrowford would be surely easier. It's a win win to have a complex close.

I don't know why scottish football hasn't either set up its own channel or clubs do their own TV and percentage of sales in games go to the away team as well with PPV available. Surely there would be more money for the clubs. I'd rather spend £20-30 a month to celtic than sky sports. Should be available automatically to season ticket holders and would provide further income to the clubs.

Said it last week 12 million is difficult to knock back for a player with a year left in scottish football. Fair play holding out for the £15 million but I think we are being maybe to optimistic. The money could be reinvested into player who want to be at the club.

The club deserves nothing more.

I had faith we were heading back to our normal ways. But it seems the clubs management/ decision makers are made up of self entitled ar**holes who seem to think that footballers are above the rules and can do what they want. First time I can truly say I feel the values of the club are no longer aligned with the fans. They've basically showed no thoughts for the people dying and seriously ill from this challenge not to mind people suffering from the downsides of lockdown. What part of essential travel did they not get? regardless if we were not in an official lockdown Glasgow was in tier 4. They club should have anticipated problems and potential a PR disaster. 13 first team staff down what a humiliating outcome.

Harsh Malika we are in this position due to the transition phase. It's something we need to accept that it takes time to gel. We are missing key players. Regardless our squad depth isn't great at the moment. Ange took Australia to their first Asian cup win. That would of had better players than the SPL teams. He done well with brisbane and yokohama. It's arrogance that we don't recognise these teams as we've found there is some decent players and teams there. I think he has got a decent few players and is building something he needs time. Again 6 points is recoverable we just need to recover it soon.

Myles I agree with you. Eddy didn't get a lot of service in the last 15-20 mins. But he was fighting for the chances he did get. The last few minutes chances that were cleared off the line. Eddy was throwing his head and anything he could to try score. I think Kyogo and the attitude of others has effected him. Take into consideration he he may not have got the offers he was expecting this summer, having had better options last season. He may be upping his game for a sale.

If we don't sell Eddy for the 15 million we hoped for then I'd hope over the next year he gives it everything so he gets a decent offer. Yes we lose out on money but he could be a player to help win the league and keep us in the Europa League if he is performing to his best. It's a win win either way.

I don't think we need 2 centre mids tbh. We still need a GK, CB, RB, LB 2 CF.

I think our midfield is actually okay with mcgregor, sorro turbull and Christie if he is staying. I'd have a youth player pushing in before buying anyone else for there.

We have forrest, Abada, dembele, johnstone and furuhashi for the wings (although I liked the videos of furuhashi as the striker) . But I think a centre forward or two is definitely required.

Get rid of edouard, ntcham if he wants to go, rid of one of those goalkeepers. Ajeti or Griffiths needs to go. Get that business done with decent players replacing and a wee bit of time to gel we should be okay.

We should of made a fortune on player sales frimpong, ajer, klimala, shved. Plus a lot of players off the wage bracket. That's already around £30 million since janaury. We are lucky to have spent 8.5 so far. If we sell the players above your talking about another 25 in the bag. All this money coming but no proper investment in the club.

I'd hold for as long as possible around the £15 million mark but he's in his last year so I think we'd accept 12.5 plus add ons. He's a young 23 year old Norwegian international, with some European experience over 250 professional games. He was our most reliable player last season. I think in a similar mould to VVD just need a bit more logical decision making.

I'm glad we are looking to bring in a young quick defence but I still think there needs to be a wiser head with experience to lead at the back. I think julien is half decent but he can get lost in a physical game. I wonder if we are looking for one? Would sviatchenko be that guy?
