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.

Looks like the McGree talks have hit a brick wall. Middlesboro looking likely to get him now.
Ah well, never mind, I don't think too many of us had ever heard of him before the last few days anyway. HH.

1.) 12 Jan 2022 11:51:11
Isn't the story, we agreed a fee with the club and offered the boy a contact.
Middlesbrough have then agreed a fee with the club and offered the boy a contract which is supposedly more than we offered (honestly don't know how the media would know the details of any contract unless the player or agent leaked it)
It's now down to the boy to decide if money or trophies and playing in the CL are important to him.
Personally if he decides not to come here I trust Ange to find another player to come in.



22 Dec 2021 22:15:09
Allowing for our injuries and St. Mirren's depleted team as well here's my mathematical description of tonight's performance.

S÷h -i + t = very poor.




19 Dec 2021 17:53:56
Starfelt isn't good enough and never will be.
Mikey J isn't good enough.
John 'The Sev' Beaton should have awarded Hibs an obvious penalty near the end. Perhaps he hates them more than he hates us. HH.

1.) 19 Dec 2021 18:22:28
Just so we are straight here two hands pushing Taylor on the back is never a penalty but two hands on porteous is a stonewaller? ?.

2.) 19 Dec 2021 18:24:16
Agreed. Abada seems to be very hot or cold too. More cold recently.

3.) 19 Dec 2021 18:33:23
Vin1 where did anyone say that?



19 Dec 2021 12:52:57
Is the rumour true that Bernard Higgins has confirmed he will NOT be joining Celtic? HH.



14 Nov 2021 18:48:13
RIP Bertie
A guy who bought into the idea of being the best he could be in life.
He did it with style. HH.

Ter, it has been said before now by many other people, if you don't have an emotional allegiance to a club then you're always going to look for the best deal you can get.
McGree's only 'connection' with us is that he was briefly involved with Ange for the Socceroos a few years back but never actually played for him.
These things happen and I wish the lad well. HH.

Come on Celtic, get the right guy for this position if it's possible to do a deal.
Lewis Ferguson. HH.

drb, was thinking the same. I had read elsewhere that the deal was done and the clubs were waiting on international work permits etc. but apparently Middlesboro are very keen on McGree as well. If it happens it happens, if it doesn't we move on.
Jota and CCV will probably take a bit longer. HH.

He did pick us but Lawwell tried to play hardball with Hibs when the lad was at Paradise to sign and that's when Hibs said, 'Feck off Peter! HH.

Steff51, the Sevs will DEMAND that he is brought in and taught how to referee games to their advantage.
They make the final call over the SPFL and the SFA.
