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.

Team no longer picks itself due to having players available.
If a 3-5-2
Julien, Ajer, Elhamed, Bitton, Jozo
Broony, Calmac, are a given then any 3 from
Forrest, Frimpong, Ntcham, Christie, Rogic, Elyannoussi, Taylor, Hayes
Griff, Eddy

For me
Julien, Ajer, Elhamed
Frimpong, Broony, Calmac, Hayes
Eddy, Griff.


1.) 11 Mar 2020 12:27:48
I'm confused by this post you've left button and jozo out of the players that you said are a given or am I misreading the post completely I don't know I'm so confused.

2.) 11 Mar 2020 13:35:06
I think it'll be
El Hamed Ajer Jullien
Forrest brown Calmac Rogic Taylor
Griff Eddy

If I was picking I'd swap frimpong for forrest and Christie/ ntcham (if fit) for Rogic. But I'm not.

3.) 11 Mar 2020 13:56:53
That's my team apart from rogic id go with Christie for his work rate.

{Ed007's Note - It would be absolute craziness to play Elhamed who has played a whole 9 minutes of football in the past five months.}

4.) 11 Mar 2020 14:13:43
Dont know why anyone would play frimpong over forrest
Sorry ed I don't agree. I'd play elhamed. His pace could be crucial down that side. didn't he miss a stack of games before that first game and get thrown straight in?

{Ed007's Note - No, his game-time was being managed because he struggles (or was struggling) to play two games a week and he was playing in Europe for us. He was dropped for the Motherwell and Hearts games that sandwiched the LC match against Dunfermline and then played against TRIFC and Accies, the next game against Kilmarnock he was on the bench and came on for 11 mins (his last domestic appearance) before finding himself benched and an unused sub for the next 5 matches in the league before getting injured against Lazio.
If Elhamed plays in every remaining match this season - which is highly unlikely - he will have managed one more game than Derk Boerrigter did in his first season for us.}

5.) 11 Mar 2020 16:52:29
Totally agree ed but think the last time we went there he was jyst back from injury and had a stormer he's maybe one of they guys that doesn't need a lot of game time.

{Ed007's Note - Or maybe he's another Simunovic or Rogic that's going to spend more time out injured than playing.}

6.) 11 Mar 2020 17:02:31
ElHamed over Bitton.

7.) 11 Mar 2020 18:45:14
I like elhameds pace but I think bitton just adds a calmness into the back line that's not always there.

8.) 12 Mar 2020 13:00:41
If it is 3-5-2 then I'd rather Hayes as LWB over Taylor purely over pace. Taylor better defensively but can see him being caught out up the pitch and doesn't offer any overlaps as he can't beat a RB for pace. Elhamed is a big risk as he's hardly played no time for getting players up to speed it should be 100% fit players but could be used as he makes the defence flexible to a change of shape.



07 Mar 2020 14:49:24
When u sign players in Jan window is it not meant to be so they can help out to the end of the season?


1.) 07 Mar 2020 18:22:41
Klimala won't, Soro might👍.

2.) 07 Mar 2020 18:28:50
Why the negative we've just won 5-0 16 points clear and 26 goals better off. youll see them next season why would you drop the guys that have grafted to get us where we are.

3.) 07 Mar 2020 18:31:49
Just by signing them might push others harder knowing that their place might be up for grabs.

4.) 07 Mar 2020 19:56:26
Yet all we heard during the window was we need to get players in now to settle for the CL qualifying games.

5.) 07 Mar 2020 22:49:31
They'll have had 6 months to learn about the club the system the manager. get digs sorted the weather and I tho k we'll see them before the season is out.



05 Mar 2020 15:51:53
Given our recent signings and risks with them not fitting in I would take a punt on Dykes (is he better than Bayo? ) and probably McKenna - granted he ain't a world beater but he is decent, left footed, very strong and might be a decent foil for Ajer and Julien. Hickey getting a bit of traction also, get rid of Boli and Bauer and bring him in as he can apparently play either fullback position.


1.) 05 Mar 2020 16:09:17
Chinks are u trying to level the playing field for next year. I think we've learned our lesson with hendry, hayes etc. The best of the rest aren't at our level. If mckenna was close to as good as aberdeen think he is he wouldn't still be there. Dykes is physical and nothing else. I would keep an eye on hickey right enough.

2.) 05 Mar 2020 16:15:45
Just because somebody had their cup final against us doesn’t mean they should be on our radar, if that was the case, that person keeper McGregor would be our first choice keeper, he could probably stomach the money but I doubt we could stomach him, no matter how diverse we are.

3.) 05 Mar 2020 16:24:37
Not to sure about hickey but I think we missed the boat when the boy at Leeds Douglas was available every time I see him he looks the part.

4.) 05 Mar 2020 16:45:56
Hendry was always a strange signing. So is Bayo at “our level”? As many foreign as Scottish signings fail.

5.) 05 Mar 2020 17:04:20
We're well off in the striker department but McKenna would improve at us big strong and left sided although ad be hoping for better.

6.) 05 Mar 2020 19:34:33
McKenna is a cart horse. No where near the standard we should be looking at. Same with Dykes. Bayo, Bolingoli, Hayes etc all fit into that category too.

7.) 05 Mar 2020 21:45:18
Completely agree Bigbubs.

8.) 05 Mar 2020 22:05:26
McKenna would not improve us in any way. He is a carthorse. The aberdeen fans were on twitter begging us to take him back down the road with us after our last game and are calling it a blessing in disguise that he is injured. The guy is f**king rank rotten.

9.) 05 Mar 2020 22:13:40
What do u not get with our level chinks? Simple really, they're not good enough as a rule, there's always an exception to the rule but we won't find 3 players in scottish football that would cut it at celtic. Dykes and mckenna definitely wouldn't improve us, hickey might reach the heights but its early days for him. Only Turnbull will be signed from our league and that depends on him regaining his form that almost got him to celtic.



05 Mar 2020 07:04:41
Massive bonus last night, had they won we would not be a happy bunch this morning. Just a matter of time now for 9 and hopefully the management team are looking at how we can strengthen to make it 10. We do need a commanding CH, especially if we play 3-5-2. And we need a clear out.

Bayo, Boli, Jozo, Gordon, Arzani (end loan) , Shved, Bauer (end loan) , Moi (end loan) . Time will tell with Klimala and Soro but early signs not good that neither are anywhere near the team and behind some of the aforementioned players that are not good enough. And get FF signed.


1.) 05 Mar 2020 08:55:54
Klimala and soro will feature more next season we doubted Taylor due to the time it took getting him in now look at him. don't think we can write them off without seeing them.

2.) 05 Mar 2020 11:57:08
Agreed they have to get a chance lads. Or what was the point.

3.) 05 Mar 2020 13:00:39
Mally I'm still doubting Taylor. Doesn't look good enough.

4.) 05 Mar 2020 13:38:33
Imo he's been great on grass but weirdly average on the plastic and he should be used to it. but I like him.



28 Feb 2020 07:12:50
Since winter break we have been playing well. Edouard has thrived on the freedom as defenders have Griff to worry about. Then we change it, why? NL must take some of the blame for last night.


1.) 28 Feb 2020 07:42:06
Some blame? He has to take all the blame.

Twice we have had the advantage going in to the home leg in Europe this season. Lennon has tried to be smart playing players out of position and its blew up in our faces.

Kev, he is a proven international CH. He has been fit all season and whilst he was injured whilst with us he would improve our defence, world beater or not. They would not gave gotten as many free headers yesterday if he was playing. We are all hurting and looking for answers though and maybe I see it differently.

Cant argue with his stats. He was out of favour before NL came in and seems he has run his course. Wish him well tho, but his future is elsewhere now. Championship most likely.

I agree weemope69. If you look at our first 11 most weeks it’s not as strong as it was in recent past. The bulk of the players have been there for a while, Brown, Calmac, Forrest, Bitton, Rogic, Griff, Christie, Ntcham. Our goalie is definitely better (albeit on loan) but we are weaker at both LB and RB (when Lustig was fit) and in central defence we are much of a muchness. Eddy or Mouse, again arguments for either. Bottom line is most of our recent signings end up on the fringes of the team, and I’m sure NL doesn’t sign players with that in mind.

06 Mar 2020 19:11:14
I like that Mally, with Griff and Moi good options from bench. If El Hamed doesn't make it what about Welch at RB or Bauer as Frimpong and Forrest on right is too lightweight.

What are u on Jonace? We need full points so why play half a team of squad players who are not good enough to start? Klimala and Bayo up front, on what basis?
