Hugh Keevins has said that he believes we have obtained 3 work permits for incoming players. HH.


1.) 29 Dec 2021 21:47:32
It been reported Celtic have come to an agreement to sign Maeda on an initial 6 month loan deal with the option of buying him for only £2 Million Euros.

2.) 29 Dec 2021 21:59:34
Yeah Buzz, reports in Japan confirming that the Daizen Maeda has been finalised.
I personally can't wait to see this boy and Kyogo up front together.

3.) 29 Dec 2021 22:06:08
Buzz isn't he out of contract after the 6 months?

4.) 29 Dec 2021 22:13:30
Seen it there buzz ? by the looks of it this could be as good a window as the summer bhoys in ange wee trust .

5.) 29 Dec 2021 23:12:59
I read Maeda’s contract doesn’t expire until January 31st 2024.
It’s strange how he is only worth £2 million Euros, after such a successful season in Japan.

6.) 30 Dec 2021 04:06:44
Celtic have actually done the right thing here loan first see if he can cut it . Then buy if he's up to the standard .

7.) 30 Dec 2021 08:38:23
Was keevins facing the right way when he said it.

8.) 30 Dec 2021 09:32:55
Keevins who said during the recent cup final when Hibs scored, this game will finish 1 0, and when Kyogo equalised if VAR was in use it would be disallowed for offside .

9.) 30 Dec 2021 12:11:52
Never a good word to say about the club we all think he supports.

10.) 30 Dec 2021 13:34:38
Hopefully by Ange identifying and potentially signing these 3 J-league players at the start of the window, it leaves us plenty of time to work on other deals.

☘ ? ☘.

11.) 30 Dec 2021 16:50:08
Looking like good business ahead in this window too. We could get Maeda, Hatate and Ideguchi in for a very small combined fee. When you think of all the millions blown on projects in the past (some being a success) this approach is much more sensible and it will be exciting to see how we line up when the windows closed and we have a full squad to pick from.

12.) 31 Dec 2021 10:00:40
I think the reason behind Maeda signing on loan allows us to get ccv and Jota signed up perm I don't forsee anyother signings tbh but I would be happy with signing they 5 perm.

13.) 31 Dec 2021 14:07:07
I'd be happy now for all the fringe players/ people not in Anges plans to move on first then maybe a loan or 2 to cover areas we are short in. Maybe a winger and possibly a CB just to be safe but we've got Scales for cover so maybe just a winger who can cover either flank.



27 Sep 2021 16:58:58
Ange's update on the Greek:

“The scan came back actually more positive than we thought so we’re hoping he’ll get back into training this week, If Giakoumakis gets a full week of training we’re quite hopeful for next weekend. ” HH.




22 Sep 2021 18:26:12
Kyogo is back in basic training but not training with the first team squad.
I suspect it'll be a while before we see him taking the field again. HH.


1.) 23 Sep 2021 10:31:49
I said something similar on the podcast recently besty. If the injury keeps him out for 3 or 4 weeks he will be another week or 2 building back up his fitness before available. Guy has been a big loss.



17 Jul 2021 20:44:28


1.) 17 Jul 2021 23:30:14
Forster linked again to, same rubbish different transfer window next Roberts will be 🤦🏼‍♂️.

2.) 18 Jul 2021 09:05:23
Take forster in a heart beat even on his worst day he's better than the 2 we've got.

3.) 18 Jul 2021 11:47:06
Good news indeed bestybhoy, we need a DEFENSE and Starfelt should prove a good start.

Mally, Forster is better than the 3 we've got!

Personally I'd like to see us bring in a new No.1 and back up keepers and get shot of Barkas and Bain.

4.) 18 Jul 2021 12:05:38
Big Forster is renowned for being glued to his line. Would he suit Big Ange style of football. If we are looking at a new goalkeeper would prefer one that can play the system and is committed to Celtic.

5.) 18 Jul 2021 12:40:00
Rodgers never had a keeper capable of playing his system bar a small run in the team dur Bain. We done alright then.

6.) 18 Jul 2021 14:29:17
He may have his faults most do but he'd be the best keeper up here by a distance.

7.) 18 Jul 2021 17:17:48
I really don’t care that he never came last summer, fact is if he comes we improve by 10-15%.
Time to make him a priority permanent signing.
I’d happily use a large portion of incoming Ajer fee to make it happen.

8.) 18 Jul 2021 17:51:40
Never really get (i don't care what they did brigade) .
Forster, Griffiths, Ntcham the list goes on but people forgive the way they treated us in the past.
Feck everyone of them it's a privilege to wear the hoops. We shouldn't be bending over backwards to accommodate people who have treated us poorly in the past.

9.) 18 Jul 2021 18:40:45
Sick to the back teeth of this Forster nonsense last season and now again this window…… bottom line is Forster was fantastic for us, he had the opportunity to come back last season and bought into the 💩 his parents club fed him about pushing for No1 and ended up spending new at of last season on the bench…… this season his club are again feeding him the same 💩. If Forster wants to earn his £100k wage seeingnout his career with his ass on the bench good luck to him. Is that the type of guy we really want between the sticks? If he wants to come he will it’s that simple but I can see his ass warming the bench again doon there this season.

10.) 18 Jul 2021 18:43:41
We let a better goalkeeper go to Hearts.



07 Jul 2021 18:24:21
Celtic are on the lookout for a First Team Recruitment Analyst after the job listing appeared on a specialist recruitment website.
I'm guessing this is a replacement of sorts for Nick Hammond who resigned from his role at the end of March. It's a responsible role for sure but why on earth have they not approached someone they already are aware of with the relevant experience?
And why have they not done it long before now? HH.


1.) 07 Jul 2021 19:31:45
Maybe the club thought what they had in place would be sufficient and the manager has seen their work and said its not good enough?

{Ed007's Note - Jay Lefevre is the Head of Scouting Operations, the First Team Recruitment Analyst - a new position at the Club - will work under him.}

2.) 07 Jul 2021 19:51:24
It's an analytics role the clue is in the title. An important facet for me but it's not as senior a position as somebody like Hammond.

3.) 07 Jul 2021 20:12:11
JimTim, the functions of the job suggest it's a whole lot more than some geezer sitting in front of a laptop. HH.

4.) 07 Jul 2021 20:43:26
So a positive in us expanding our scouting base.

5.) 07 Jul 2021 21:12:22
Yes Ken, but why the delay? We knew things weren't good since Lenny left and it needed an overhaul.
Here we are in July and now we're asking the question. HH.

6.) 07 Jul 2021 21:39:27
I’m confident we will see changes I don’t think Ange is the type to lie, his intrerviews are well presented and I actually believe in what he’s trying to do here. There will be plenty of work going on in the background scouting and offering deals etc.

7.) 07 Jul 2021 22:15:15
Ken, I'm sure there are but this is a strategic position.
My question is why has it taken until July to look for someone?
Did we not think this was a good idea 3 months ago? Or is this a new approach in the world of football that was invented yesterday?
All the big clubs have been on it for quite a few years but here we are, hustling about trying to think of new ideas. HH.

8.) 08 Jul 2021 10:28:19
You're spot on bestybhoy.

{Ed007's Note - Pedro, how can you look for someone to fill a position that didn't exist? Everyone was delighted when McKay spoke about modernising the Club, now a week after he took over and he's started doing it people are asking why it took so long, yeah because SEVEN days is just soooooo long to get things moving. #McKayOut

9.) 08 Jul 2021 10:55:25
Maybe you should ask bestybhoy, he made the point 👉.

10.) 08 Jul 2021 11:07:29
We want change right now ED! No time to wait, right now. The club are doing well at the moment that’s how I see it. Transfer window opened 8 days ago in reality and everyone’s already freaking out. Listen to the manager and what he says. Too many negatives nowadays lol.

11.) 08 Jul 2021 14:37:31
Sums up this window to a tee when the talk is about getting recruitment people in. Ange should be look8ng at 0layers he wants within our budget and Dom gets them. Two weeks have passed since he said he, wanted them in yesterday, and so far, it's a free from Sheff Wed. It's truly remarkable how long it takes our board to do anything. Have they learned nothing? Right now it seems that way. We need players for the CL or it's the old back four of Ralston, Bitton, Taylor and Welsh. Even writing that gives me the fear. Come on Dom four or five in the next couple if days please.

12.) 09 Jul 2021 10:21:42
Our club should have been on this a long time ago and I'm not talking about the last 7 days or 10 days or whatever, I'm talking about the last 5 years or more because various sources of all or most of the required info has been available.
All the big clubs have been doing it for ages and perhaps it's an example of one of many important cogs missing from a machine that needs to be highly maintained.
The fact it's being addressed now IS a positive development if a bit later in the game than it needed to be. HH.

I was talking to a work colleague today, another passionate Bhoy, and he asked me a question.
The GB create some fabulous tifos but what happens to them after the game?
Does anyone know, or are they generally made quite cheaply and binned after each game? HH.


1.) 27 Apr 2022 21:09:54
Bestybhoy I was talking to a steward before one of the games and said they have their own storage locker at Celtic Park, perhaps it’s all put away after games.



17 Apr 2022 21:06:06
We never got out of the starting blocks today. We lacked any sense of fluidity from the first whistle and we pretty much got what we deserved. Disappointing performance but I'd rather lose in the cup than in the league. Hopefully the players will be up for next week's game, if we win then we pretty much confirm the title but if we slip up again then it keeps it very interesting for them. HH.


1.) 17 Apr 2022 21:40:23
Bestybhoy next weeks game at Dingwall was always going to be difficult as Ross co are chasing a European place and it’s always a difficult venue. It’s been made a more pressure game with sevco wanting their game against Motherwell brought forward a day and if they win that game we are only three points ahead. Sevco who have no time for the SFA or the SPFL and especially Doncaster are now begging for their game to be switched to help with their European preparations, imo it’s to put that pressure on Celtic the following day.

2.) 17 Apr 2022 21:57:09
Celtic missed Bitton today.
Bitton would’ve helped Celtic see the game out today.
He had the most interceptions in our 2-1 victory at Ibrox and Bitton was only on the pitch for 28 minutes.
Celtic missed that physicality in the midfield, the longer the game went on.

3.) 17 Apr 2022 22:48:48
Remember GG played a massive part in that win too.



09 Apr 2022 19:03:07
A proper team performance today.
Nothing is close to being settled but we're sitting pretty. HH.


1.) 09 Apr 2022 20:04:05
Play like that till the end of the season and we have nothing to worry about. That's been coming for a few months now was good to see us push until the end and not kick back after half time.



08 Apr 2022 01:46:23

What Ange has shown first and foremost is that he is a leader and motivator for players who are receptive to his ideas.
If they get on his train then he'll lead them to where they want to go but if they're questioning him or his decisions then he'll leave them on the platform.
And that's how it should be.
Shape up your attitude or ship out. HH.


1.) 08 Apr 2022 09:27:08
He makes tough decisions regarding playing time but still has the players on board which is a gift in itself, yop man top manager and we're lucky to have him.

2.) 08 Apr 2022 11:42:33
@Bestybhoy and Mally yes Ange is a breath of fresh air and KNOWS the business and is confident in his own ability.
UNLIKE Goodwin at Aberdeen. First it was the Brown saga now the Considine one.
Rumours I heard is that he is jealous of these type of players trying to get their coaching badges, and obviously does not have enough faith in his own ability as a coach, so he ditches them.
The Aberdeen dressing room is not a happy one since he came in hope he goes to Sevco lol.

{Ed007's Note - I can't see ex-Celtic & Rep. of Ireland player Goodwin that is openly a Celtic fan along with his family who all have season tickets for Celtic Park would be interested in a job at Ibrox. Publicly Goodwin will say his dream job is to manage the Rep. of Ireland but privately he would LOVE the Celtic job but he knows that's never going to happen.}
