4-2-3-1 again what us up with lennon. We play better in a 3-5-2 I don't get this is eddy injured.

2.) 19 Sep 2020 14:03:43
I’m not happy with that starting lineup.
With all our options in midfield and we are still going with the pedestrian midfield 3 of Brown, McGregor and Ntcham.
It is also a blow Edouard isn’t starting and Griffiths hasn’t made the bench.
On a positive note our bench is very strong if we need to make game changing changes.

3.) 19 Sep 2020 14:25:47
Lennon is either too stupid too, stubborn or too unprepared to upset certain players and the reluctance to play to our obvious strengths, may not affect today's result but it will damage our entire season.

4.) 19 Sep 2020 14:34:40
Do we know what's up with Edouard?

5.) 19 Sep 2020 14:39:35
Lennon is starting how he finished on Wednesday with Ajeti and Christie up top.

6.) 19 Sep 2020 14:42:34
Tactician he is not.

7.) 19 Sep 2020 14:44:31
What the f**k does turnbull need to do for a start! No need at all for 2 holding against feckn livi at home! Why back to 1 upfront tae? Moi and turnbull should be in there for brown and Taylor!

8.) 20 Sep 2020 15:53:00
Agree with you Danny. Turnbull should play a big part in the future of our midfield and that future starts now. Brown needs 'rotated' and to get less/ limited game time, at 35 I can't see why this isn't already happening?

9.) 20 Sep 2020 21:10:34
Turnbulls the future get him in .

1.) 16 Sep 2020 18:43:15
That’s a brilliant lineup, better than I was expecting.
Elhamad played well at Hampden on the left side of a back 3 for Israel.
It means Celtic can play Ajer on his favoured right and Duffy in the middle.
Starting Taylor at LWB is also the correct selection by Lenny.
He has also installed more pace into the side with Christie and Klimala.

2.) 16 Sep 2020 18:43:45
4 unnecessary changes and no way is this the 352

Why on earth does he constantly tinker with the team.

3.) 16 Sep 2020 18:44:05
For me, Klimala has earned that start. Seems like a real hard worker and he brings something we haven't seen in a while--a directness, maybe.

4.) 16 Sep 2020 18:54:36
Brown doesn't need to play every game for us to see his influence is waning.

5.) 16 Sep 2020 19:04:12
hink Julien on the bench lenny is sending out a message you are not a automatic pick fight every week for your place. think its the same with a few others this is a strong squad youse all have to fight for a place.

6.) 16 Sep 2020 19:14:04
Brown has a great influence on the team. Allows attacking players to attack. Also covers the gaps when Ajer goes on a run or when the wing backs are up the park. The Broony haters baffle me.

7.) 16 Sep 2020 19:29:40
If he is sending out a message to juliane that he's not an automatic pic the he needs to send the email to Broonie and Jamsie to. On form Frimpong should be RWB tonight and Forrest dropped. Not sure what message that is sending to the boy.

8.) 16 Sep 2020 19:33:21
Great line up.

9.) 16 Sep 2020 21:48:22
Klimala is the/ was the wrong choice he is a counter attacking striker .


10.) 16 Sep 2020 21:53:18
I feel like we're missing Elyounoussi. We're not really capitalizing on the 2-up front like we did when Griff was in last year. Dunno what it is, but I can't help feeling that this is a really really flat start to the season, despite the table position. The players looks like they are frustrated to me.

11.) 16 Sep 2020 22:01:20
The only thing Lennon has got right this season is when he said certain players don’t want to be here, that was pretty obvious watching that tonight . I honestly don’t know where to start I would be here all night so I’ll finish with maybe the players don’t want you here Neil.

12.) 17 Sep 2020 10:34:58
Markie broony is a captain and a leader he brings a lot more to the team than meets the eye stop hating and get behind him. every squad needs a leader in it and broony is that.

1.) 12 Sep 2020 14:03:54
I like that team 3 5 2 It looks like.

2.) 12 Sep 2020 14:10:12
Good lineup. Very attacking.
And our strongest bench since the Invincible season.

3.) 12 Sep 2020 14:17:59
Great squad with plenty of options. Good to see Elyounnoussi on the bench as he has been struggling to fit in lately and resting Christie after two Internationals. Said earlier that Brown will never be left out and I also think Ntcham and Ajer are in the shop window.
So if they really want away, they will have to perform to impress.

4.) 12 Sep 2020 14:32:48
Like line up and formation. Really believe 3-5-2 is the best way to outplay teams that flood midfield and park bus against us. Can see a good few goals today.

5.) 12 Sep 2020 14:43:41
would like to see soro come on about 60 mins for brown see how he does in that position.

Marco1888 has asked for a poll about Neil Lennon's future. Do you want him to stay on or go. You can vote HERE.


1.) 31 Aug 2020 10:39:20
Ed, difficult to answer. Depends on replacement etc.

2.) 31 Aug 2020 11:15:02
I would like Lennon to stay and the board to back him. Let’s stop messing around with transfers and taking too long to get them over the line.
Feels like we’ve been talking about the same players for months, go get the deals done, back the managers and the fans will too.

3.) 31 Aug 2020 11:51:32
He's been nothing but backed since he got the job permanently last summer, transfer deals aren't like fifa they can take a week or 2 to get completely it doesn't just all happen at once.

I'm all for backing the manager but when you get knocked out of Europe 3 times in 12 months by sub standard opposition due to poor manaegment decisions then the writing is on the wall, he's taken this team as far as he can and should get us to 10 and leave the club at the end of the season with his dignity intact.

4.) 31 Aug 2020 12:16:34
Didn't want NL back. Said when he was given the job full time we could kiss goodbye to the league and kiss goodbye to the 10. Was delighted to be proven wrong last season and really hoping I am again this season. Always that feeling things could go spectacularly t*ts up at any point under NL. That said, really not sure now is the best time to be changing managers. If it was genuine quality and the likes of JK stayed then the transition could be smooth. So yes - but as Big Benny says it would seriously depend on who was coming in.

5.) 31 Aug 2020 12:34:28
Give him till end of this season IMO. Can’t argue with domestic form doing well to conclude 2 trophies then add another 2 with Scottish cup meaning it should be 5/ 5.
Mixed fortunes in Europe poor in Champions league qualifiers but good victories in Europa over Lazio and Red Bull definitely deserves remainder of this season as it would be silly and risky to replace him at this stage.

6.) 31 Aug 2020 12:50:50
Its all opinions but the plc aren't sacking him. He will be our manager this season. At this stage he's not had top players sold and been backed with a substantial transfer budget.
2 games in hand over the Zombies win both 2-0 we go top. To the support its all about the 10.

7.) 31 Aug 2020 13:20:30
I CANNOT believe for 1 second that there’s more Celtic fans want Lenny out than there is to back him -
Back our Manager 100% - we will win the league-
The only issue with Rangers right now is Moreles - wait till they get players out etc and ( that will happen ) pressure etc as last year - let’s see who has the bottle for the entire season?
We will bring in more players and some need to go.
We have been over this ground so many times - let’s not jump on THAT ( Panic ) bandwagon.
This is a Season that us ( Celtic fans ) and they ( Rangers ) know exactly what’s at stake -
The Only thing that matters this season - Is THE TITLE

Rant over

8.) 31 Aug 2020 13:27:27
Anyone saying lennon hasn't been back is talking nonsense. he's spent major money the last 2 seasons.

9.) 31 Aug 2020 13:57:52
Would say sack him but at this stage we are better sticking with him for the season. He is definitely not the manager to make us a better team. He has a lack of ability to change and adapt. We have seen tbat especially the last few weeks but a new guy coming in the now could be more harm than good for the 10.

10.) 31 Aug 2020 14:33:39
Thanks Ed.

{Ed007's Note - No probs buddy 👍

11.) 31 Aug 2020 15:18:45
I am surprised by the amount of fans backing him to be honest. But every one has their own opinion. I do think the only thing that is keeping him in a job just now is down to finance. Having to pay him off bring in a new manager back room staff and I would think the new manager would want his own players so for that reason only I think that this will save him for this season I just hope he doesn't make any more cockups and have some way at looking at a game no matter how long the game is in play and if need be to change things for the better and not just do his usual and leave things as they are when it's clear to everyone that the style or system is not working for that particular game.

{Ed007's Note - How the Hell has there been 250 votes cast? 😯 There must be some amount of lurkers and "them 'uns" hiding out there.}

12.) 31 Aug 2020 15:54:56
its just the timing for me.

13.) 31 Aug 2020 16:35:38
Great idea for a vote marco HH.

14.) 31 Aug 2020 17:16:15
How is the board not backing him? Near £20 million spent on transfers last season and almost £10 million spent this season already, according to transfermrkt.

His signings have been woeful and his tactics have been wrong more than they've been right.

15.) 31 Aug 2020 18:17:09
Back Lenny&team 100 percent. can't believe you even asking for a poll to be honest.

16.) 31 Aug 2020 19:14:25
Correct this is the season for unity lads roll the sleeves up and get behind the team no matter what .

17.) 31 Aug 2020 20:11:09
Agree with Kev83, NL has had the backing and his signings in the main have been poor and/ or untested Boli is rank, Klkmala and Soro both cost decent money and aren't ready. Julien for £7m is questionable, Elhamed injury prone and one paced, Elyonousi jury's out and it goes on. How many of his signings are star performers week in week out?

{Ed007's Note - Lennon has been backed but you're wrong to call them "his" signings.}

18.) 31 Aug 2020 20:50:55
Ringo you say back Lenny and the team yet Lenny doesn't even back the team, well at least he doesn't one day then backtracks the next, very professional.
Do you think Lenny is getting the best out the players at his disposal?
Do you think all these rumours of unrest in the dressing room are just that, rumours?
You also say you can't believe there is even a poll but at the moment 55% would like to see a change, so it seems like a pretty decent topic of discussion to me. it's not like Lennon or the team are likely to be sitting reading this (no offence Ed) . They'll probably be too busy tucking into their takeaways.

19.) 31 Aug 2020 21:11:53
Lennon has one more bad result left!

20.) 31 Aug 2020 22:46:21
So IF we could play the games again. Cluj, Copenhagen and ferencvaros. Would we have a better chance with stevie Clark in charge or NL?

21.) 31 Aug 2020 23:36:05
I just think we should all be getting behind lenny and the team and yes he made a mistake saying what he did the other night about the players but was said in heat of the moment in my opinion. He has always backed the players.
I thought we played well against ferncvaros apart from 2 stupid defensive mistakes in Europe as usual.
Tired of reading false rumours in press also as that exactly what 95percent of them are.
Now is not the time to be changing manager when going for 10 .
Board need to back him and get signings done asap.

22.) 01 Sep 2020 07:21:18
I would and have backed every single manager we have had in my life time but when a manager is constantly making the same mistakes time and time again and then blames the players for his ineptitude to change his "tactics" when things don't work but lennon doesn't do that he plays the exact same team and tactics the very next game. Even the Motherwell manager said they were containing us till we went to a 3-5-2 and then he said we were outstanding. But if Eddy is still unfit when we get back I guarantee that we will continue to play with no strikers. Enough is Enough.

23.) 01 Sep 2020 08:53:27
Everyone has there own opinions and some say back lennon and the team but it's not as if it's one bad result and the fans are turning on him, yes he stepped in and got us to the finish line but in reality are we really a much better team than before he came back?

I'll mention this again to the fans that are all for backing him, he was backed after the defeat to cluj, then copenhagen but getting beat off ferencvaros now is just ridiculous, anyone who can't see that he's made us a laughing stock is blind to the real issue, how can brendan Rodgers inherit a team and get us to the group stages in back to back seasons, good decision making that's how, Lennon has failed at it.

For everyone who will mention "we beat lazio home and away under lennon" we didn't play particularly well both games and got 2 injury time winners and relied on a world class goalkeeping performance in both games to get us over the line, and even though I'm grateful for the result it's not as if he's made us a team to be reckoned with.

He had issue with his attitude and temperament at hibs towards players and now it seems the same thing is happening with this group of players. I don't know if the signings made are his or not but I would expect a much better team than the one we have now with how much we've reportedly spent since last summer.

Sacking Lennon right now is the wrong choice, it will bring more upheaval and unrest to the squad which will effect performances on the park, he knows how to win the league but he's not the man for us going forward, I wanted him back when rodgers left but my attitude towards him has changed due to his poor tactics and management decisions in a number of games since he got back, I don't think I'm the only one who feels the same way.

No striker again? But 2 on the bench?

2.) 30 Aug 2020 13:49:36
Is that a case of you were the ones that messed it up now go out and try to redeem yourselves?!

{Ed007's Note - Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.}

3.) 30 Aug 2020 13:57:32
As Brian Dempsey once said 'The Rebels Have won'. The apparent malcontents and want-away players make Lennon look a fool.

4.) 30 Aug 2020 13:59:26
He's played the same team because whoever he dropped, everyone would assume that's the ones that aren't wanting to be here! F**kin knew he wood do that . better no backfire again or he needs to walk.

5.) 30 Aug 2020 14:01:15
Well said Ed, Klimala will never be a Celtic Player of he doesn't get a sniff, why not loan the lad out if he isn't good enough, makes no sense what so ever, players need confidence and that lads must be crumbling.

{Ed007's Note - We know Ajeti isn't fully fit but surely Klimala is fit enough to at least start the match to try and get us a lead then swap him at half-time for Ajeti or even A.N. Other with a rejig and then bring on Ajeti with 15-20 mins to go.}

6.) 30 Aug 2020 14:02:34
just sheer stubborness. had it with rodgers strachan etc but c'mon man.

7.) 30 Aug 2020 14:11:37
Correct me here but NL said Klimala didn't play cause he wasn't fit and they didn't want to throw him in deep end in a game of that MAGNITUDE. Motherwell in SPL same magnitude?

Smacks of a man who is trying to prove a point and agree who ever he had have dropped then everyone would have singled them out as want a ways.

8.) 30 Aug 2020 14:11:41
wylie67 not if he dropped brown and played a striker.

9.) 30 Aug 2020 14:24:07
hink this is a case of prove we are all pushing in the same direction and make up for dureing the week.

10.) 30 Aug 2020 14:29:49
Or start harper if the other two aren’t fit enough! He made a rod for his own back with his outburst, now it would be obvious who he was talking about if he dropped them. And would be admitting he was wrong if he played the forwards!

11.) 30 Aug 2020 14:46:23
He should not make it out the building without his p45 even if we win today.

12.) 30 Aug 2020 14:54:22
Is it not more to deflect. A good win would justify the selection and he can say this is what should’ve happened in Europe 😳.

13.) 30 Aug 2020 15:27:49
Personally think the formation he is playing is even more concerning. 3/ 5/ 2 should be what we are playing regardless of fit strikers. Playing one up top against Scottish teams is embarrassing. Buy players to fit the formation and then mix it up in Europe and games versus the Rangers where more tactical prowess is required!

14.) 30 Aug 2020 15:30:29
Unbe--leavable. I'm afraid that indicates that Lennon knows fine well he can act with perfect impunity.

15.) 30 Aug 2020 17:05:51
He is playing the same team, because he said in the paper this morning, that if he had to play Wednesdays game again, under the same circumstances, he would pick the same team again, or words to that affect, so he has to play the same team today, or he would look stupid, but I think he looks more stupid, because if he had played the team that finished today's game at the start of Wednesday's game there would have been a different result.

16.) 30 Aug 2020 20:35:54
I am delighted we won today but again no striker the man is stubborn he has to go the strikers could have got a half each. He is basically saying fu fans I don't care what you think. He has got to go.

17.) 31 Aug 2020 08:30:39
Ed can you put up a vote. A) Lennon stays on . B) Lennon has to go. Heading, would you like either.

{Ed007's Note - I'll sort that out, Marco.}

18.) 01 Sep 2020 15:12:22
Sorry but it shows me that Lennon has no back bone. I said previously his u turn was poor on his side but looking at this side today just shows how bad he is. He hasn't got the courage to support is convictions. If they don't win he surely must go. Also feel for klimala. The guy is been treated shockingly by Lennon.

From Ed002 -

Kristoffer Ajer (CB) really wants a move this summer and agents have been offering him around. Milan see Ajer as a cheaper option to their primary target but funds may not stretch as they look to sell players and buy lower priced alternatives or include players in the deal. With other options falling by the wayside, Ajar is of interest to Leicester. Top of the list for Atletico Madrid - but only if they lose a CB - which they are trying to avoid. Previous interest of Spurs, Newcastle and Ajax has moved on. He does offer an option for Liverpool but I am not aware of any approach just yet - Celtic will be looking for £20M plus - but the door is indeed ajar for Ajer.

Christian Atsu to Celtic could well happen.


1.) 03 Sep 2020 16:36:42
Bit gutted to hear this as I like big Ajer and thought he would be right up for 10 in a row. Its understandable that he will want to play in a better league but don't feel another year with us would have done him any harm. £20M plus is good money for him imo, hopefully this income means there's less chance of Edouard or Ntcham leaving.

2.) 03 Sep 2020 16:45:44
Hope he’s got his bags packed and doesn’t return only way is down after they leave Celtic not many go on to better things. Iv never been an Ajer fan so if we can get £20mill for him outstanding am happy to piggy back him the entire way there.

3.) 03 Sep 2020 17:18:00
if we get 20million for ajar i will be really surprised. that would be great business.

4.) 03 Sep 2020 17:26:21
Campsie Virgil and Larsson maybe the only ones.

5.) 03 Sep 2020 17:28:01
I would bit the hand of 20 mill for ajer.

6.) 03 Sep 2020 17:43:50
For £20m its a no brainer. Sell. Especially if it means keeping Edouard for another year.

7.) 03 Sep 2020 17:58:40
CampsieBhoy it’s some trek fae Campsie tae Leicester. But if you do piggy back Ajer down and ye see the orange fella with the big white teeth could you tell him that I burned his book and said he was a fud. Thanks. jfp.

8.) 03 Sep 2020 18:17:31
Sad news I really thought he loved it here and would be Celtic captain one day But good luck to him when the time comes no hard feeling Every one has ambition players move all the time.

9.) 03 Sep 2020 18:35:26
should not be a suprise to anybody that any player wants to leave at some point after KT he was mr celtic as he would make out and he wanted a move so ajar wanting a move does not suprise me. 20 mill is a brilliant deal none of our top talent will be leaveing for peanuts anymore.

10.) 03 Sep 2020 18:52:05
Yes D&P they are the only 2 mate out the loads that have left and I understand that UI but it still makes me angry when these premadonas try and engineer there way out our club and ad much rather loose Ajer than CalMac or Eddie.

11.) 03 Sep 2020 18:53:12
Even though he tried to backtrack afterwards I think Lenny was accurate when he made the outburst after the Ferencvaros game.
Ajer wants away. He is clearly one of the players Lenny was referring to and I think we should get rid of him to anyone that offers a fee that Celtic feel is acceptable. When a player wants to move they automatically lose their desire to play for the team they're with and we don't need that attitude in the dressing room. HH.

12.) 04 Sep 2020 00:31:36
This has been on the record for a while No need to get nasty. Ajer has been good for Celtic and we have been good for Ajer. I'd be looking to push the 20M mark for a versatile and intelligent lad who is also natural police. We'd get more, in my opinion, except that he is publicly wanting away. He'll have a splendid career and would relish a return to CDM. The good news is we got it covered this time, bhoys.

13.) 04 Sep 2020 07:07:24
Duffy is jozos replacement, if Ajer goes he needs replaced too.

14.) 04 Sep 2020 08:35:11
I didn't watch rhw Ireland game, but I read something that Duffy was taking the blame for their goal. I for one like it when a player takes responsibility for the mistake and from what I have read, big Duffy will add something different to our defence.



31 Aug 2020 10:34:48

Marco1888 has asked for a poll about Neil Lennon's future. Do you want him to stay on or go. You can vote HERE.


1.) 31 Aug 2020 12:13:45
The 50 50 split will do NLs mental health the power of good, of course he doesn't do social media

I think he needs the benefit of the doubt at the moment . for what it's worth but the jury is certainly back out

If I was asked whether NL is right for the medium to long term, it would be an emphatic NO but that wasnt an option.

2.) 31 Aug 2020 13:15:03
I voted for him to stay on because I do not want to upset the apple cart in such and important season.

However, I am starting to run out of patience due to his decisions to play people out of position when there are options there for him not to do so.

Maybe he is over compensating, perhaps trying to be " too clever "

A 1 off 90 minute match at hone against Ferencvaros should have been a case of . gloves off . quick start. high tempo . suffocate them . a half fit but mobile striker, if anything, would have occupied their back 3 . a back 3!

Spilled milk . hindsight.

Lennon and others would be well advised to read up on

Brilliant basics

Ed, I noticed arsenal recently snaffled a SET PIECE COACH and it was considered news worthy. Arsenal were poor at defending set pieces and poor in terms of exploiting set piece opportunities at the other end too.

We are a full time, professional club!

We want to see week to week improvement.

If our measure of progress was to monitor set piece delivery and overarching impacts, we'd give the team a very very low mark.

Does that mean they don't think there is a problem or does the incompetency and malaise run deeper.

When NL rabbits on about possession and cornere and attempts at goal he must think that these baseline stats equate to a " get out of jail free card" or validation.

How gullable!

I know a manager that doesn't even look at possession and passes complete stats anymore, or for that matter area covered.

They are more interested in ( in advised)

Completed forward passes only amongst other more " game influencing" stats

Possession and yards covered and passes complete ade futile KPIs in a game that involves putting the ball in the net more often than the opposition.

Feck you need to get out more lubo 😅.

5.) 31 Aug 2020 14:41:06
Mally exactly re Lubomir.

6.) 31 Aug 2020 14:44:14
we should have 3 set piece coaches lennon, kennedy, strachan.

7.) 31 Aug 2020 17:18:54
Molly I'm a park ranger. too much time and fresh air . railings to paint bit I've done the risk analysis and don't fancy it . so you get this!

8.) 31 Aug 2020 18:54:45
I think we are very short of first team coaches etc. We usually have only 2 or 3 in the dug out . Last Wednesday night the Hungarians the 7 or 8;.
One’d our men in the dug out is Strachan and he spends the whole match taking notes as staticistan and so he cannot encourage the players.

9.) 31 Aug 2020 19:13:46
I wasn't enamored by the NL appointment but at the same time I supported him because of the 9 and now 10, would have preferred someone else to be honest.
Now I am of the opinion we need someone else to come in and deliver the 10 someone more professional, I'm not sure he can do it this year things seem to be going tits up 👎.

Evening lads. My laptop died on me away at the start of last week so apart from an old battered mobile I've not been able to get online since then. I've been trying my best to keep the site moving but my phone limits what I can so now my wee niece has gave me a loan of her laptop for a few days until she goes back to Edinburgh for uni starting that's me back online for now and I'll get back to all your emails etc in the morning.

HH 🍀 God bless 🙏

Wondered why you weren't on live chat - I said ye were at Mass. Glad you're OK Ask Santa for a new laptop? Catch you on Sunday.

{Ed007's Note - Thanks CM, some length of Mass that eh? 😋 Aye it'll need to be Santa as I already hit the Banque de la Mam for a new washing machine for Grotbags last month.}

5.) 29 Aug 2020 07:24:37
Tell the truth Ed the laptop got launched after Wednesday's result 💻💻.

{Ed007's Note - It should have been the manager that was launched after that result.}

6.) 29 Aug 2020 08:33:04
Good to see you back Ed HH.

{Ed007's Note - 👍

7.) 29 Aug 2020 09:10:22
Nice to have you reconnected ed. And don't worry you've not missed anything significant in the world of Celtic. All is good here. 😂.

{Ed007's Note - I didn't think we would reach the Group Stages of the CL but I never thought we would go out this early against a team from Hungary.}

8.) 29 Aug 2020 10:03:26
rubbish laugh, ed. Good luck getting something sorted out.

{Ed007's Note - Cheers, Cav.}

9.) 29 Aug 2020 10:57:54
I've missed your Pearl's of wisdom. Welcome back. Its turned into 1 flew over the banter site since Wednesday night🤪.

10.) 29 Aug 2020 13:12:57
I have really missed your thoughts on the events of the week ED, I am glad to hear you are well.

{Ed007's Note - Thanks, Gerry. It was another disaster but were we really THAT surprised?}

11.) 29 Aug 2020 13:33:58
Sadly not.

{Ed007's Note - Appointing Lennon after Rodgers midnight flit was the right decision but appointing him permanently was/is a disaster waiting to happen. Like a lot of our players he's good enough for Scotland - simply because we have the money to spend on better players btw, it's nothing to do with the coaching - but he's nowhere near good enough to take us forward in Europe or as a team.
The stories of players being unhappy are no surprise to me either as his man-management skills leave a Hell of a lot to be desired which I pointed out when he was appointed and Lennon getting the job was one of the reasons Tierney decided to leave as he knew he wasn't going to improve any further at Celtic.
Standards across the board have nosedived since Lennon's arrival, the training & coaching, discipline and the outright professionalism are on the wane.
Once the 10 is secured Mr Desmond has to take a serious look at the way the Club is being ran on the footballing side and Peter Lawwell needs to take a serious look at himself and whether it's time for him to step aside for a younger man with fresh & modern ideas who can take the Club forward.
We would still be in the CL if we had appointed Moyes.}

I don't know why my reply didn't come up there. Anyway, I think the idiot should keep his mouth shut and keep his nose out of things that has nothing to do with him.
How would he have liked it if Jose Mourinho had came out and said he wanted the Man Utd job during his disastrous spell there? I knew he had no class but this is a new low even for him.
He basically said the club would need to give him substantial money to spend so for once I applaud Peter Lawwell for his frugal approach - anything that keeps that clown Moyes away from CFC has to be a good thing.

William Troost-Ekong's contract with FC Groningen runs until 30-06-217 and he is currently on loan to FC Dordrecht until this summer. He only left Spurs for FC Groningen in the summer of 2013 signing a 4-year-deal. He played 2 games for them before joining FC Dordrecht on loan in January 2014 until the end of the 2013/14 season then last summer he was sent back to FC Dordrecht on loan for the entire 2014/15 season.
That's why the name of the source website is filtered out, Tony, they just make up stories to attract hits without checking their facts, hit-whoring. If they can't get his contract details right what chance do you think their rumours are true?

It might be an apt time to explain again about the cost of transfers (excluding wages). What is paid by the buying club would typically include:

(a) Transfer fee - the big number.
(b) Any levy applied by the local FA – 5% for the Premier League.
(c) Tax due on the transfer fee – typically this will be VAT (at varying rates across Europe) some or all of which should be reclaimable.
(d) Agent fees – this may be to one or more agents (as an example, Liverpool have spent £44M plus VAT on agent fees (nearly double the next highest) last season alone).
(e) Tax due on the agent fees – typically this is VAT at the local rate where the agent bills from – it is not reclaimable.
(f) Intermediary fees – this may be to one or more sponging leeches (what do you mean you have a super agent?) .
(g) Tax due on the Intermediary fees – typically this is VAT at the local rate where the Intermediary bills from – it is not reclaimable.
(h) Signing on fee to the player (possibly including non-reclaimable VAT if the player is VAT registered).
(i) Legal fees.
(j) VAT on legal fees which is reclaimable.
(k) Moving/relocation costs for the player.
(l) VAT on moving/relocation costs which is reclaimable.
(m) Solidarity and Training Contributions (see below).
(n) Paying up insurance costs to the selling club (usually waived).

What is paid by the selling club would typically include:

(a) If the player is under 24 and moving between different football associations, a Solidarity contribution paid to his previous clubs responsible for his training - this is 5% of the transfer fee received (apportioned 5% of the contribution for each year from the season of his 12th birthday to the season of his 15th birthday and 10% of the contribution for each season from his 16th to 23rd birthdays). This is generally (there are exceptions) recoverable from the buying club but responsibility (that is meant to be with the buying club) can be assigned to the selling club.
(b) If the player moves to a higher category club (all clubs being categorised 1 to 4) then Training Compensation is due for the period of age 12 to 21. Compensation is due to all clubs when the player turns from amateur to professional and thereafter only when he moves from his final training club to another club. The initial training compensation is levied at the training costs associated with Category 4 clubs. The subsequent figure is agreed between the sides or tribunal if necessary. This is generally (there are exceptions) recoverable from the buying club but responsibility (that is meant to be with the buying club) can be assigned to the selling club.
(c) Any monies owed to the player if he did not request a transfer – again this is 5% of the transfer fee received.
(d) Any monies owed to the player in terms of his contract (typically outstanding owed wages (not future wages) and bonuses).
(e) Any money contractually due to a previous club as the result of a sell-on clause.}
