Seen a rumour that we are monitoring Greg Taylor. I havnt seen much of him but I have heard he has potential and thought of highly at kilmarnock. What are peoples thoughts regarding this?


1.) 08 Aug 2019 11:26:09
Potential? When are we going to realise we need quality £7-8m players from a cheaper league. Aren’t we sick of projects? If this is Scrooge going cheap again he can truly go feck himself. Boli is a nightmare made flesh. Get the money spent on a quality two LB’s and give Boli back. I hope we kept the receipt.

2.) 08 Aug 2019 12:28:56
Taylor is a talented lad who plays well now and has a massive future if he can get a break. Celtic could well be that opportunity. HH.

3.) 08 Aug 2019 12:50:55
We seem to bring in plenty of these 'future projects' but we rarely see them making the breakthrough and establishing themselves.
Yes, we have had great success with our own academy, but far too many of these imports end up being discarded or forgotten.

4.) 08 Aug 2019 13:08:40
This is a funny one for me, Usually positive but we have plenty cover at LB Calvin Miller, Johnny Hayes can do a job there, Don't see us paying £3million for a LB in Boli and him not being the first choice, Young Luca can play there and am not happy at letting Guttman go back to USA knowing KT was leaving as he was probably the biggest highlight for me pre-season

We need a top dollar RB and if Sinky leaves a bit of decency up front on the left but in all honestly where do you think they are going to spend? We are bloated positional wise but we need Quality now really first picks to come into the team but stop stock piling players that are much of a muchness (Y)

5.) 08 Aug 2019 13:23:14
Couldn't get a work permit for guttman Jamie.
Calvin and Hayes are not good enough. We need another LB and RB.

6.) 08 Aug 2019 13:24:36
But I'd be happy at moment to have Elhamed as our 1st choice right back as he looks a bargain.

7.) 08 Aug 2019 13:27:49
Yes Jamiebhoy, we have been very guilty over the years of stockpiling similar players then sending them out on loan and more often than not they leave without ever having a chance to play regularly. It doesn't do us any good and it doesn't help them in their careers either. We need to bring in proven players who can walk straight into the team and if we have to pay a few quid for them then so be it. We're paying the price for having too many players who aren't in the first team because their wages stop us from going and getting who we need. HH.

8.) 08 Aug 2019 13:45:07
Kev we must have a work permit for Guttman he is already our player we couldn't sign him without one surely?

9.) 08 Aug 2019 14:02:01
Wat I've seen off boli, I'd rather Hayes at left back.

10.) 08 Aug 2019 14:11:19
Ye Jamie you can sign them no bother man city and Chelsea do it all the time.

11.) 08 Aug 2019 14:17:17
Tbh wasn’t sure of the fullbacks as hadn’t heard of them and yes it’s early days but what strikes me most is Elhamed actually looks like a fullback his positioning looks natural to him whereas Boli looks like he’s never played flthe position.

12.) 08 Aug 2019 14:50:49
That is right Wb76 Boli started out as a winger and developed more into a wing back in a 5

Not a natural LB, but we don't fork out £3million in every time (Y)

13.) 08 Aug 2019 15:31:29
Welsh that's because he's actually played on the right hand side between winger and right back more that he's played CB.

Jamie could be that boli has been bought to play the wing back more than standard left back?

14.) 08 Aug 2019 15:46:21
I think that is the case Kev he was superb at that at his last club
His manager said it messed up his plans for the whole season selling Boli because they needed him for that set up 👍.



25 Jul 2019 08:22:14
Napoli's left back isn't leaving which basically ends their interest. I think he might just stay another year. at least I hope he does.




19 Jul 2019 08:05:45
Lille are apparently in for simo for 5 million. Out of curiosity who would sell for that?


1.) 19 Jul 2019 09:55:45
Depends if we have anyone else lined up. We need 4 cbs.

2.) 19 Jul 2019 10:34:58
I like Simo but is a bit reckless and has had his injuries think 5 mill is fair. Still think we should keep him seems to play better under Lenny.

3.) 19 Jul 2019 12:19:34
With his injury history I would sell him but we would need to bring another quality CB in.

4.) 19 Jul 2019 13:42:59
Strange one that, would be surprised if he goes. But if he does then at least he will always be remembered for that tackle 😂.



13 Jul 2019 19:24:13
Heard a rumour about Danny Simpson signing.


1.) 13 Jul 2019 19:48:24
Think he was at the game the day, he is 32 now but bags of experience, not ideal but could maybe do a job. Plus wouldn't cost anything.

2.) 13 Jul 2019 19:57:02
Good player but older than Lustig. I guess we’ll see.

3.) 13 Jul 2019 20:34:11
I haven't seen what he was like Last year. Remember him a few years ago and was good. I would say if we get him we should be aiming to get someone else with potential as well.

4.) 13 Jul 2019 21:18:37
We need a right back that can defend, I didn't know much about Simpson, so I looked on Wikipedia, it says he is a defensive right back that doesn't venture forward much, but is good defensively, that was Lustiqs failing as he got older, he looked ok going forward but was worse and worse at the defensive stuff, much like Tavernier at the other lot, I want a right back that can defend, I don't care what else he can do.

5.) 13 Jul 2019 21:49:43
Aindoh I think tat was the fault of Rodgers asking lustig to bomb forward when he no longer had the pace to get back.
After Lennon came back in and told Lustig he didn’t need to get forward so much I think there was a major improvement in his defending again.

6.) 13 Jul 2019 22:38:00
Don't agree Kev, Lustiq just couldn't handle the defensive chores any more, is easier to run forward and put the opposition under pressure, but he couldn't react fast enough defensively when a pacy forward was having a go, when you get older is hard to admit to yourself, you are getting older, and then you have all this blind loyalty to the club, (talking about the Lustiq supporters) , who just won't admit, that he isn't good enough anymore, probably the same people who are criticizing Lawell, for not spending X millions to bring in over paid, under performing, but big name Mercanaries.

7.) 14 Jul 2019 00:14:49
Has he still got the legs for it? never seen him play that I can think of.

8.) 14 Jul 2019 00:38:57
Wikipedia says he can defend - get s grip

He’s been freed and no one wants him.

9.) 14 Jul 2019 05:26:15
I agree with Kev, there was a huge improvement in lustig defending when Lennon took over from Rodgers and while I’ve been screaming out for new quality RB to be brought in, I do feel lustig could maybe have been a more than capable understudy to a new RB. However lustig gone now as have gamboa and toljan ( which in my opinion had to happen) both weren’t good enough, however what it has done is left us with nothing at RB. yes ralston is there but does Lennon really rate him? Can he stay fit long enough to challenge for a place? It’s ok letting 3 RBs go but it’s a position we’ve looked to strengthen for a few years now and badly struggled to do so. Surely there’s a quality RB out there somewhere more than happy to come to a club the size of ours? I don’t know who I’d go for that’s our scouting networks job to identify targets but for me I’d forget the over inflated prices of players from down south and be looking around the Austrian, Belgian, Dutch leagues etc for more value for money.

Mbombo is official. 4 year deal.


1.) 04 Jul 2019 08:29:03
Well just need right back sorted, maybe a striker and a number 10 as can see rogic or nchtam moving.

2.) 04 Jul 2019 11:14:09
I heard arsenal have just offered £8.99 for him.

3.) 04 Jul 2019 12:57:45
Why would arsenal want Tavernier I suppose 8.99.

Neil Lennon to day at the press Confrence said in terms of the finished squad he wants for the season ahead how far are you to getting everyone. he said 'miles off". Basically I would say that means he wants at least 3 first team signings in. Rb, cam, and Cf is my guess and maybe 1 or 2 more.


1.) 23 Jul 2019 20:27:12
Most supporters would agree that we need another three quality additions in key areas and we are hopeful of this happening soon.
It would also be good business to shunt Ntcham as part of a deal.



10 Jul 2019 20:54:03
With potential leaks coming from the club. Does anyone think the club could be starting rumours with certain people to try and catch out who it is?


1.) 10 Jul 2019 21:36:21
They probably are mate.

2.) 10 Jul 2019 23:58:13
That's what I think as well mate. They will slip up at some point.

3.) 11 Jul 2019 00:00:46
similar but not football.
I worked with a company who used to advertise for the various job positions (offshore drilling rigs) in the papers under a box number with no company named.
They did this:
1. To see who might be unhappy and want a change.
2. To judge what size of pay rise they should consider.
3. To see if any of their supervisors applied.
Not uncommon for companies etc. to use the system for information,



09 Jul 2019 20:43:02
I thought Morgan looked pretty good of what I seen of him.


1.) 09 Jul 2019 20:47:47
I hope he proves me wrong but I just don't see him ever being good enough.

2.) 09 Jul 2019 20:53:01
We shall see, is shved injured thought he might have been at least on the bench.

3.) 09 Jul 2019 21:18:06
Truth be told neither should be near the starting line up if Forrest is fit.

4.) 10 Jul 2019 12:50:56
I’m not saying Morgan is going to be a real star, but for the length of time he was on he did more than Forrest, three perfect crosses into the box and no takers, i don't recall Forrest getting decent crosses in, give the boy some time to settle in before having a go.



31 May 2019 11:21:28
I have a new take on the manager situation. I think everyone agrees the most important thing in the next 2 years is securing 10iar. If we where to say hire a big name manager, it would have to be someone most likely sacked recently and out of work looking to rebuild their reputation like Rodgers did. That would risk a manger potentially leaving during the 10 season similar to Rodgers done this season putting 10 at risk. Maybe the board simply seen Lennon as the safest and most stable pair of hands to get 10. Or maybe some fans are right and it's just the cheap option. either way worth thinking about.


1.) 31 May 2019 12:53:16
The one thing that pleases me is knowing that no one wants to get 10 in a row more than Lennon.



28 May 2019 07:30:16
With the amount of injuries we have been getting do you think we should be resting more players in cup games? It will make a 4th treble much less likely but 9/ 10iar must take priority. What is everyone's thoughts and what do you think Lennon will do?


1.) 28 May 2019 09:57:08
Win everything! Give them nothing.

2.) 28 May 2019 10:34:43
Need to give players more city breaks to places like Dublin to recuperate.

3.) 28 May 2019 11:06:21
Let’s get 55 before they muppets.

4.) 28 May 2019 11:30:05
I just feel we need to look after the players a bit more. I still of course want to go out and win the cups but certain players are playing 50-60 games a season. And this season has just been ridiculous with injuries.

5.) 28 May 2019 11:30:56
GEDceltic everyone goes on about 10 I want 55 before they get 1 or I will be disappointed.

6.) 28 May 2019 18:41:14
You know they're really going for number 1 55 is make believe a fairytale orc children get told at night lol.

7.) 29 May 2019 00:01:32
We need to play more players, players need to get the odd game off .
I can't understand how in most domestic games we can't play about 9 first teasers and one or two youngsters . This would help to give first testers a rest and introduce youngsters to first team football .
BR tended to make too many changes without giving youngsters q chance.

Once fees have been agreed it really doesn't take that long to conclude deals. Unless there is need for work permit. Arsenal met the valuation late on and we finalised it. It was that quick.


{Ed007's Note - KT's contract with Arsenal was already done and dusted, the hang up was the clubs agreeing a fee and once that was done it was only the medical left to do.}

He isn't chasing money he is chasing success. Playing here at Celtic he can only progress so far and he has probably reached the peak while at Celtic. If he wants to get better he needs to play better opposition week in week out. I wish him the best but your right we will be fine without him. Plenty of class players have do e the same and we still continue to thrive.

Elhammed was quality. Boli looks shakey defensively but hopefully he will improve that. Definitely need a new first choice lb if kt is off.
