have you heard of we are actually interested in Tyrese Campbell. If we are and they have already made a bid that would be a sign of intent and "one upmanship " if we got him. No idea if he is good enough admittedly.


1.) 14 Jan 2020 23:57:45
That's how we ended up with Allan and Morgan.

2.) 15 Jan 2020 07:52:13
And Scott Brown😉.

3.) 15 Jan 2020 09:50:18
And glen loovens.

4.) 15 Jan 2020 13:22:52
But at least we missed out on that rat novo.

5.) 15 Jan 2020 13:40:20
Poor rat being compared to that poor excuse of a human being.



04 Oct 2019 22:42:21
Think Taylor will make the squad this week? Boli is doing well but would be good to see him get some game time. Same with Bayo, like him to get a start and see what he can offer.


1.) 05 Oct 2019 11:36:54
Yes with the hard game on Thursday and the physical effort team put, allied to orrible plastic surface, I would freshen it up a bit. McGregor looked tired on Thursday give him a rest and play Nitcham who was only on for last few minutes. Also Hamed put in a shift bring Bauer back and put Taylor at left back, he should be used to playing on plastic pitches. Up front, I would take no chances with French Eddy and play Bayo.

2.) 05 Oct 2019 12:04:50
I agree with most; replacing the two full backs and Awesome but bringing in Ntcham is questionable. He does not tackle and never plays well away from Celtic Park. If you want to play him bring in Bitton and play him at 10. This would allow us to rest Christie and Macgregor. Having a strong bench would let us make changes depending on the way the game was going.

3.) 05 Oct 2019 15:17:33
Play the best players in their best positions. 3pts then international break. Rest no one we are fighting for a league title.

4.) 05 Oct 2019 18:29:42
Wouldn't make too many changes not to sure about Bauer after last Sun.

5.) 05 Oct 2019 19:17:46
keep a winning team together.3 points then rest anybody that needs it.



23 Jun 2019 17:12:15
Why are Celtic saying KT has his price but Calmac is not for sale. Seems odd. Surely position should be the same for both - young, talented and on long term contracts.


1.) 23 Jun 2019 18:09:13
Maybe they know something about his hip injury and are willing to let him go.

2.) 23 Jun 2019 18:20:19
Or more than likely. they haven’t told them a value, and simply said 15m isn’t close and the media are lying as usual.

3.) 23 Jun 2019 18:21:36
Because if they sell them both in the one window it represents selling the club out IMO

There would be a backlash just my opinion when as you point out they are on long term contract's.

4.) 23 Jun 2019 19:47:21
Or maybe KT has told them he wants to move on. I think he’ll be gone by the end of this window.

5.) 24 Jun 2019 08:25:50
I think KT wants to go onto the highest level plus from what I heard was that he wasn't keen on the standard of players being brought in.



01 Sep 2018 08:11:50
Someone is going to have to explain to me why we didn't sell Boyata for £9m and then reinvest in someone who actually wants to play for us. We will lose him for nowt next year and he is not as good as he thinks he is. Stupid decision as I'm certain if our scouts did their job we could get a decent CB for £5m or so. One of several bad decisions this window. They aren't great but will win most of their games and the game on Sunday is a must win to put down a marker.


{Ed002's Note - A good CB has arrived on loan.}

1.) 01 Sep 2018 09:06:08
Emanuel emenike is a free agent might be worth a punt big burly striker could do Us a turn as cover fir Griffiths and eddy.

2.) 01 Sep 2018 09:44:44
Chink67 I think that the plan could have been to get through the qualifiers then punt him.
We needed him for they games and the manager knew it.
The gaffer expected him to be a professional and if he had I've no doubt we'd have qualified.

3.) 01 Sep 2018 11:06:23
Heaney, Eminike is a good player but do you know if he has calmed down with age? Seem to remember he was a bit of a bam on and off the field.

4.) 01 Sep 2018 11:57:29
Lacina Traore is also unattached and guiseppe Rossi but he was always injured.

5.) 01 Sep 2018 12:04:23
He’s 31 now think he would be sound enough as cover but don’t think Rodgers would mind a challenge as long as he can still put the ball in the net.

6.) 01 Sep 2018 09:19:19
How do we know he is a good CB ed? let's face it, he got a move to leicester for a huge fee, but he is very young with very little experience. Ajer and hendry are bomb scares together and now we are relying on an unknown and boyata, a player who does not want to be here. Rodgers must be gutted. Is it just me or does anyone else see that we are going backwards? The morale and harmony in the squad can't be great after the exploits of boyata and dembele. Forgive the negativity but a 22yr unknown Cb on loan and a 31yr freebie that no one else wanted just won't do it for me. ☘HH.

{Ed002's Note - Filip Benković picked Leicester over Borussia Dortmund, Inter Milan and Chelsea with Spurs also showing an interest. He may well be unknown to you but he is well respected in the game. I hope he fails miserably at Celtic so you are not disappointed.}

7.) 01 Sep 2018 13:27:06
The CB has been chased by some big clubs including ours for years and the free that no one wanted was signing foe Swansea till we approach him.

8.) 01 Sep 2018 13:43:30
Just because he was linked to various clubs does not reflect his ability, he may well have potential but we don't need potential, we need ability particularly at the back! The fact he picked leicester over the clubs you mentioned ed tells me that he lacks ambition and favours money, dortmund would have been a great place for him to go! Or maybe these clubs you mentioned are just media hype. Anyway ed I ask again how do we know he is any good and not just another experiment? Please try and reply without being sarcastic. We all know we can't afford to have another experiment at the back. ☘HH.

{Ed002's Note - Just forget it then. Try the approach of screaming vile abuse at him and start up a hate group on Facebook and force him out of the club. I truly hope he fails completely and loses Celtic multiple games to keep you happy.}

9.) 01 Sep 2018 13:51:30
I think the boy looks brilliant. I would play him tomorrow with Boyata. The only downer is he will leave before our CK qualifiers next season.

10.) 01 Sep 2018 13:58:30
For years kev, really? And we stole a 31 yr freebie from swansea, lol I should think so! Look I am just a bit concerned about where we are going and the signings we are making, like many fans I am not convinced. We are weaker than we were, no doubt about it. We lost armstrong, dembele and roberts who were first picks. Our defence is poor and we go out and get a freebie from killie, an unknown cb on loan, 2 young boys who are far from first team material and a LB who we punted a year ago. Forgive me for not being ecstatic. ☘HH.

11.) 01 Sep 2018 14:27:55
Benkovic is a coup the board done well in that respect to get him here. Him Boyata and Ajer at the back will tear it up this season.

12.) 01 Sep 2018 14:27:56
Benkovic will be or is the best CB at our club make no mistake this boy is a great player watch and see.

13.) 01 Sep 2018 14:29:41
Would you rather we go out and sign 14 players who are not in our league.

14.) 01 Sep 2018 15:17:56
No marco, but their two centre halfs would walk into our team. ☘HH.

15.) 01 Sep 2018 15:56:18
he has to be a troll 😂 Benkovic is a fantastic signing and hopefully will bring the best out of Jozo as well. 4 solid centre halves in the squad, until big Starvin Marvin comes in and plays a sweeper as part of a one man defence. Solid.

16.) 01 Sep 2018 16:33:50
Armstrong and Roberts first picks?
Guess you didn't watch us last season
Both where on bench when fit.
Both CBs would walk in to our team?
I smell 💩💩💩💩💩.

17.) 01 Sep 2018 17:10:39
Is that supposed to be light hearted kev? ☘HH.

18.) 01 Sep 2018 18:19:54
Goldson and there other CH are rotten they are terrible under pressure and have no pace we will take 3 or 4 off them and I’m willing to wager you on that and I never bet.



24 Feb 2018 22:46:36
Said it before and will say it again, not trying to get McGinn was a mistake. He is better now than Kouassi, Armstrong and more reliable than Rogic and eventually could play the Broony role.


1.) 25 Feb 2018 11:40:54
Top players from other spl clubs that have joined simply haven't stood the test of time. Brown, LG and SA (1 season) when on form have been exceptions. Our top players almost always are brought in from abroad. If the talent isn't there domestically, which it isn't, we have to continue to look further afield. I like McGinn but will he take this team up a level? I don't think so.
From our first team squad there could be GK departures. 3 defenders, 4 mf and 2 strikers. From the loaned out list Christie looks like the only one likely to get any game time.
To replace the likely departures 6 players at a bare minimum have to be brought in. For me they ALL need to be first team ready. 25M might do that. I'd say we won't go north of 12.

2.) 26 Feb 2018 13:40:19
Scott McDonald, Caldwell, Robson, Hartley, McNamara, Mark Wilson, Stokes, Mulgrew, Agathe etc

all our own youth players are domestic as well.

Paul Lambert was developed at SPL clubs

sure there has been as many failures but you can count as many failures we have signed from foreign leagues also.

When someone is available and they are "valued/ trusted/ respected" then it stands to reason there will be many suitors. That being the case speed is of the essence and if you snooze you lose. Hopefully we are not found sleeping at the wheel if Howe is our No1 target. We have been burned before by doing this, many times.


1.) 07 Apr 2021 11:42:54
I think if howe wasn't coming why would celtic and howes reps mot just kill the story, there's has to be substance in this Imo.

2.) 07 Apr 2021 12:27:46
As far as I know Howe wants to bring in his own DoF Celtic have/ had their own man in mind and feel that it would be putting all the eggs in one basket as if Howe leaves more than likely will take the DoF with him and leave Celtic up against it again. That could be all bull but that is what I have seen.

3.) 07 Apr 2021 13:48:33
The reason Celtic don't kill the story is it's free publicity. Celtic have never killed any story including rangers problems because they need as much money as possible and every team in the league to do well as it makes more money with a full league.

4.) 07 Apr 2021 15:52:46
If they had to respond to every claim it woukd be a full-time job. They could let us know when they are actually speaking to someone at an advanced level. That way we woukd be able to dismiss all the rubbish we have to out up with. They won't obviously, so every rumour is used by bookies to fleece mugs out of their money.

5.) 07 Apr 2021 17:20:31
They are always very silent on these things. I suppose you can't say your looking at x, in case he knocks it back and then you offend y. Then we end up with z (Kennedy lol) . I just hope the get the whole structure right. The background team while be important too. I just hope they are look at it like us fans.

6.) 07 Apr 2021 17:23:54
Get that lads but what's to stop howe nailing it if it's bull never mind the club. that's why I think there's obviously something in it.

7.) 07 Apr 2021 18:44:24
I agree with you @ magicpole.
It's the Celtic way say nothing.
Don't Rock the boat in all that.



02 Apr 2021 07:18:08
I for one believe Howe is a great coach and will instantly earn the respect of players, like BR does. Big jump from Bournemouth to us but same could be said of SG teaching kids. Yes it's a risk but any signing is, whether a manager or player. Just look at "howe" KT has took his game to the next level with better coaching. We have a good nucleus of players that our previous manager got the best of, Howe might just be the man to replicate that. Hail Hail Howe. HHH.




21 Mar 2021 13:55:56
Another game we turned 3 points into 1. No way they are 20 points better than us, and when you look at the money we squandered that's on bench or not even in squad it shows how much we threw this league away. They are an average team well coached. We are at least as good, arguably better with shocking coaching. Any corner they looked likely.




14 Mar 2021 14:16:34
Keane isn't my cup of tea but if its him I hope he has a look at Maloney as No2.




04 Mar 2021 22:21:04
Just watched some of Eddy's very early goals for us. No question he was leaner and moved much quicker. He fitness levels are definitely down which may explain why he seems to run into trouble more than he used to. He ain't alone as LG and Ajeti are still carrying excess timber.


1.) 05 Mar 2021 09:05:31
He's a totally different player in physique, sharpness, style and more importantly attitude. Unfortunately not the £40m touted player he was at his peak and some team is going to get a real bargain.
A major reason why our club needs a complete overhaul and purge the club of the second rate coaching and fitness standards.

2.) 05 Mar 2021 09:47:37
Chinks67 can you remember Ronny Deila commenting on player fitness after taking over from Lennon firsts reign? Lennon had a smart remark about it during his Bolton Unveiling.

Its Lennon that's the problem. Thank god he's gone.

3.) 05 Mar 2021 09:47:50
Off to Leicester for 15 million apparently. Doesn't leave us with much profit but better than him leaving for nothing.

Ed007, if I recall correctly Charlie Adam said something similar and that his signing was a big mistake.


{Ed007's Note - Adam said signing Ajeti was a gamble (aren't all transfers gambles?) and that he had heard that he wasn't at the level people think - I think that was more about his ability he was referring to.}

Most weeks a 6 or 7 out of 10. That's against dross though, yesterday against an average Sevco team he was 2. Willbget found out in Europe and against them so I'm afraid he will be getting "returned to sendsr"

Lennonatwork, not really the same players. No Gordon/ Forster, no KT, no Lustig, no Boyata, no Moussa, no SS etc. All replaced by inferior players. Added to that an inferior manager and a captain who played 12 months too long there's your answer. Its not the same team/ players that won all before fhem.

And Barkas will never be our No1. He will be back to Greece or Turkey at end of season. He is rank, despite what his previous form might have been.

Ed007 agree 100%, never understood the 2-3 windows or years behind scenarios. It all depends on the manager and level of investment. Not that we will, but if we brought in a Rafa, Ancelloti, type manager and gave him £30m to invest we would romp it.


{Ed007's Note - We've went from winning a Quadruple Treble to being 18 months behind? Nah, no chance. Look at what happened in MON's first season.}
