Seems to have gone quiet on the CCV and Jota front. Read somewhere that Jota might not be as keen as Celtic to do the deal. Anyone heard anything similar or better still, to the contarary?


1.) 20 Jan 2022 09:55:35
Celtic can wait until the end of the season and use the CL group stage money, that will be coming our way.



14 Jan 2020 23:34:50
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.

COYBIG! ??????.


1.) 31 Jul 2022 09:14:47
My bets for today,
Celtic to win, Celtic to score at least 3 goals and Celtic to get at least 8 corners @4/ 1
Celtic to win both halves, Celtic to score at least 3 goals and Celtic to get at least 8 corners @ 7/ 1.



23 Jul 2022 16:58:59
Thought some of our moves and sharp passing was superb today. Early days for new signings but thought they all showed positive signs. Hatate, Abada and Jota look like they will create a barrow load of chances for our strikers.




23 Jul 2022 07:51:14
Really looking forward to game today as I think Ange will start with our strongest 11. I think middle to front we are very strong and have plenty options. Mt only slight worry is central defence, especially in Europe. I think CCV and Starfelt are decent and we are their level but against top teams I think we can get away with only one of them and AN Other. Hopefully Jenz will be the "other" as Julien and Welch aren't. Hope I'm wrong and they both kick on but pace mobility and height of both against quick nimble forwards and towering defenders gives me the fear.


1.) 23 Jul 2022 08:22:58
IMO our defence can look vulnerable at time's. When teams break our press. We play aggressively deep in opponents half, Press broke and large gaps to run at our defence. It's just the way ange pays.

2.) 23 Jul 2022 10:29:35
Me and the family back up today since C.V. stopped everything. Kids buzzing for it. Asked this before so sorry to repeat but what’s peoples thoughts on best or easiest or available place to park?
Cheers HH.

3.) 23 Jul 2022 14:31:05
That's always the risk when you play the press Auf, if it gets broke then your wide open. The front and middle should play a high press but the back 4 should hold their line imo that way we don't always have to score more than the opposition score!



19 Jul 2022 19:54:50
Like most folk I've never seen Jenz play but Ange hasn't gone far wrong so far. Davies was touted to us (and half of England) so I'm no convinced he is a player. Debate about whether we have a stronger 11 than last year, let's wait and see. Personel wise maybe not, but a good few of last years team will be better this year.


{Ed007's Note - Have we got a stronger squad than last season? Bitton and Rogic definitely upped their game last season under Ange but this time last year I don't think there was a Celtic fan that would have been upset if both had left.
Gucci's been here a year and will get plenty of game, going by what's going round Jimmy Mac is raring to go, Hatate was goosed for the last couple of months last season and has had a full preseason, Kyogo and Maeda have also had a rest and a pre season under Ange, fans wanted a new LB and we got one, new CB brought in to replace Jullien (how was the team/squad stronger last year with Bitton pi$$ing about?) we brought in Siegrist as back-up, a player who could have been our main rivals No.1 if they didn't give a 40-year old a new deal.
Sure Mooy isn't a big marquis signing but it's not as if he was presented as such, he's a good sqaud signing that's a bit different from what we have, will he do a job for us as Bitton's replacement in the sqaud, brought on to add some dig and see matches out, definitely.
Remember when everyone looked into Ange last year and he said himself it usually took a year to see the fruition of his plans, now everybody's $hat the bed because we signed a squad player that Ange, Kewell and Baby Lawwell know well on a free.
I'm not convinced Ange is finished for this window but anyone that's questioning whether we are stronger/better than last season are just looking for something to moan about.}

1.) 19 Jul 2022 20:35:07

goosed ??????.

{Ed007's Note - Celtic fans spend too much time reading about OFFC players jetting in after their latest swoop then start panicking - imagine we hadn't signed Jota or CCV even though it would have been nothing the Club done wrong?}

2.) 19 Jul 2022 20:36:31
Great post ED, Also on the Sevco newest recruit.
When we were signing him he was a free agent and would have been fighting young Welsh as Celtic's 3rd choice and after signing for Liverpool he wasn't even 5th choice but Sevco have just paid £4m for a defender who will come in as there 1st choice.
A great business model like this will see the second club to play at Ibrox go into liquidation.

{Ed007's Note - I think John Park hacked our scouting system computer before he left...... ?

3.) 19 Jul 2022 20:37:00
Don't get your last comment Ed. You run a forum and a podcast where celtic fans debate every aspect of the club. Debating the strengths of squads is just another aspect of all things celtic. HH.

{Ed007's Note - What don't you get, my opinion? Just try reading it again, maybe slower. C'mon, you ?

4.) 19 Jul 2022 20:39:19
Great Post ed summed up perfectly, am bemused by all this negative pish that has no foundation.

5.) 19 Jul 2022 21:46:16
For goodness sake!

AV said on here and podcast that the board are damned if they do and damned if they don't.

Let's give the current team / squad a chance to prove what they can do then offer a full assessed view after watching them.
I do respect everyone has and are entitled to an opinion.

We either " in Ange we trust" or we don't.


6.) 19 Jul 2022 21:46:32
Same the negativity bad. Its like they can't see the big picture. Mooy ange knows him inside out. Do you really think he would have signed him not a chance ange is now controlling everything football wise at the club.
I'd never heard of jota or vickers or JJ or the Greek god or kyogo or maeda or hatate or guchi
Or oriley. Oh ye and never heard of ange.
So I guess ange messed that up as well.
We win the league and a cup last year on anges first season.
These guys won us the league and where just thrown in are we forgetting this guys.
Now they have been rested and first preseason.
So I think you should let ange do what he is good at.
As we don't have a clue.
We'll except @ed007.so leave it to ange and Ed007.
Then blame them end of season ???.

{Ed007's Note - ??

7.) 19 Jul 2022 22:01:34
12 months ago we were in complete disarray, does anyone not recall the shambles that Ange inherited?

The job that Ange, with the backing of the board, has done, is nothing short of phenomenonal.

Oh and we're Champions again, you know.

☘️ ? ☘️.

8.) 20 Jul 2022 04:10:21
A note on OFFC newest recruit- NL wanted him. AP didn't. End of.

9.) 20 Jul 2022 08:55:40
FEW of us are forgetting that. It was a mess.
To win anything last year was from the gods.
Nobody was expecting it.



01 Jul 2022 20:08:57
On paper we are not stronger than we were last year (other than potentially Bernabei for Taylor) but it feels like we are due to the huge boost of CCV and Jota signing. Also with a full pre season we will have a fit and coherent unit. Added to that the other mob seem content to resign guys who have seen better days. A quality ball winning midfielder in the mould of a young Broony and we will stroll the league. I'm sure Ange has this covered and although Lewis Ferguson has been touted and would do a job, for the money they would demand im sure Ange can get better. Genuinely really excited about the season ahead. HH.


1.) 01 Jul 2022 20:47:25
I want a CDM brought in (or McCarthy giving a chance) push McGregor up the pitch and GG playing number 9 kyogo number 10.

2.) 01 Jul 2022 21:09:36
To be fair, we are way stronger than we were this time last year. On paper and in reality. This nonsense that we've spent around £14m to stand still is just that, nonsense. CCV and Jota were not our players. We have paid a premium to change this and now have them on long term deals, thus increasing the value of our squad as well as having the continuity. Same can be said for Daizen. Neither of the names mentioned, nor a few others had the benefit of a preseason with the club last year. I'd say we are clearly in a much stronger position than we were last year.

3.) 01 Jul 2022 21:11:34
Will Abada be first choice for RW or Jota on the right and Maeda on the left? I think we'll absolutely stroll it this season domestically. The challenge is Europe. 3rd place would be the target but depending on the luck of the draw maybe even 2nd.

4.) 01 Jul 2022 21:40:10
@MikeybhoyOG, agreed.
We may not be hugely different in personnel (apart from Bernabei and Siegrist) but we're stronger because they have been together for a while and Ange now has a full pre-season with them all without having to deal with Champions League qualifiers. I'm thinking we'll bring in another or or maybe two to boost the quality. HH.

5.) 01 Jul 2022 21:55:17
We are 30% stronger than last year.
Now its a full preseason players not burnt out doing two seasons in a row players getting thrown in the deep end and told to hit the ground running.
Players wil had a rest.
They know each other now.
Jota vickers and a few others have now signed long term contracts worry over and the financial future sorted. So clear heads now.

6.) 01 Jul 2022 22:47:32
Wee Jota didn't look as if he had a rest, he seemed to be on a flight every day for the last 5 or 6 weeks! lol HH.

7.) 02 Jul 2022 06:53:17
Agree we have added finical value to club. Signing CCV, Madeda and jota permanently, personally don't really care about the value of the squad. Adding the LB gives us more option there.
So on last season we have improved the squad slightly, we also lost 2 big players out midfield in Rogic and Bitton.
It's only early July and with Ange and Nicholson we have people that know what they are doing.
Getting big wage thief's of our bill will help us. Personally think we are 3 players short. CH, DM and Striker.

8.) 02 Jul 2022 09:29:30
We're stronger in every way due to the fact we have a full pre season, we have 2 loans that are now permanent, that alone gives you a boost, we have a right good keeper to push Joe and a lb very highly rated to compete with Taylor, abd were not done yet.

9.) 02 Jul 2022 11:42:03
We are stronger, we have two guys who were giving us sleepless nights, worrying if they were going to sign, even though I knew we had the option to buy and only a complete idiot wouldn’t trigger it. Even if we had to sell them immediately. The fact both of them chose us is a massive boost to the team and us. We have a new LB who looks tasty, can dribble and put a cross in. A great keeper to cover and push Joe. We will sign a left sided CB, because Ange and us all know we need one. Another striker would be great, Mmaee looks fantastic but I know that probably wasn’t even a thing. We will get an enforcer, we need one. For once the club are doing what they always should have, throwing punches quickly and often from the get go. . No feckin about, and look what a difference psychologically it has made to every Tim on the barsteward planet. Keep it up Celtic, this is who we are, we never feckin stop.

10.) 02 Jul 2022 19:42:12
Dpt87 depends on opposition can you imagine kyogo at 10 against them scary stuff IMO HH.

It's been reported as 1 year loan with option to buy. He will be a free agent in a year so surely that's the same as us freeing him?


{Ed007's Note - I said the same to Paul, Chinks. The article on the Club's official website on the day Julien signed in 2019 says it was a 4-year deal but now the story on Twitter is that Celtic have a years option they will trigger to guarantee a fee, just like Spurs done with CCV.
This is with the years option seems to be a recurring theme at Celtic, they announce players sign deals and then it turns out there's an extra year on it, the same thing happened with Scott Sinclair and his last year here was a bit of a let down.}

Hart, JJ, CCV, Starfelt, Taylor

The sanctions will make it difficult for everyone in Russia and given the Uefa and FIFA stance I'd say yes. Much as this may annoy our support.
