See a report tonight from big Sutton suggesting the LB from rosenborg is nearly done. here's hoping.

Apparently West Brom have agreed a fee of £2.9 million for the boy sawyers from Brentford. I'm assuming we weren't really interested in this lad after all if we aren't prepared to match that bid.

I think we go into transfers with the feelbgvthst works is working on 1980’s price lists. Baulking at £3m for a player who we hope to take us to another level is totally bollocks. It’s as if we deluberatly try to make qualification for the CL and moving so far ahead of Sevco as difficult as we can. We get in quality we have been promised it’s doomsday for them. If a player is to add that something special and is outwith our budget at £3m then it’s hard to see us getting Anyo e of class. We spent the same on Boli and he looks awful so far. It’s early I know but he just does t look worth half that and if he is to replace KT we have put another defender who looks a complete liability in a defence we all know has been needing sorted for years. Quality costs, if we have no intention of getting that in don’t tell us we are looking at it. Unless of course you say we just like looking but if they don’t accept Provy Cheques we move on. Sevco are teetering, let’s finish them. Qualifying for the CL would be a good start but we need the players now and the game bed we need won’t cone for a bag of shrapnel.


2.) 27 Jul 2019 14:29:27
We may have bulked at paying £3 m for a player who after further consideration we may have felt that we couldn’t bring this player to a new level . Or on close inspection we may have felt this player may not have fitted into our squad, little things can change manager, s decisions.

Being reported Arsenal are apparently coming in at £22 million now for tierney. what part of £25 million are they not getting? Especially now if Napoli are interested, what makes arsenal think they can offer £22 million if the price is supposed to be £25 million? Surely Celtic being in control of this situation just chase arsenal once and for all, tell them the exact figure one last time and if they aren't prepared to meet that quote don't come back with anything less!

They are doing what Celtic have done for years mate wanting the best price for the player they are buying .


2.) 04 Jul 2019 10:36:03
Well in case you missed the reports lately? Crystal palace have quoted 80million for zaha. Arsenal offered 40 million Seems they don't understand club valuations . I also read they bid 50 million for Harry McGuire after man utd had a 70 million bid turned down? Surely they can't be that bad?


3.) 04 Jul 2019 11:36:05
Del it’s what bussineses do I am not condonen it but it’s the way of the world everybody wants a good deal I also want top dollar for the wee man.


4.) 04 Jul 2019 12:14:41
It was reported when they made their first bid, that they only had a total transfer budget of £45 million, then they bid £50million for Saha,


5.) 04 Jul 2019 12:54:33
Wouldn't accept anything less than 30m for Tierney, people can laugh at that amount for a player from our league but celtic are entitled to demand it in todays transfer market. Tierney would handle it at any top club in any of the big leagues so when the likes of wan bissaka goes for 50m after 1 season with Crystal palace then it's only fair.
We need to keep our best players and players especially like Tierney who is one of our own only come around once in a blue moon. I understand we're a business at the end of the day and it's hard to compete with wages/ ambition etc and if a player wants to move on and develop themselves then we have to respect that but bids of 15m then this apparent 22m is a joke for a player of his potential.


6.) 04 Jul 2019 13:13:09
I agree with Greenclover 100%, we should be demanding a packet for KT.


7.) 04 Jul 2019 13:58:32
Kt has captained his country gaining 12 caps, has won 9 trophies, has champions league experience scoring and assists in the process and he has Europa league experience also.

It doesn't matter what league he plays in really at the end of the day he is undoubtedly a talented players that lots of clubs would knocking on the door for if they actually needed a player of his position. As long as we keep giving the rich clubs our players for cheap prices, they will keep coming for them at cheap prices.

It's about time the board stood up to these teams ( I don't know but maybe they are right now ) I would be setting the price at 35m for him regardless of what KT or anyone else said. You don't pay you don't get him simple as that!

Arsenal are trying to take the p**s.


8.) 04 Jul 2019 14:47:21
Lewis dunk £40million.


9.) 04 Jul 2019 16:53:48
That's what I'm saying Phliphlop and Arsenal offered 15 for a 22 year old with a wealth of experience, chase them.


10.) 04 Jul 2019 17:03:08
If you were to put a price on Andy Robertson at Liverpool, then that's what KT is worth. Not too far apart in ability, just robertson he's had the oportunity to perform at higher level.


11.) 04 Jul 2019 17:26:27
@duffandphelps true businesses go in with low bids to start negotiations but Arsenal are being very disrespectful. For a start the alleged 2nd bid of 17.5m plus 7.5m if they won EPL is a joke! They know they will never win EPL as they can't compete with Man City and Liverpool.

Personally I hope Tierney ends up at Napoli as Arsenal are at it.


12.) 04 Jul 2019 17:31:12
Take 25 plus nacho moreno? He’s 33 but still has a good engine on him, could get 2 seasons out of him easy and has plenty experience in Europe could even help the youngsters develop.


13.) 04 Jul 2019 19:19:49
Philtim I’d rather Tierney stayed and said am here for 10 in a row get it right f**kin up the lot ae yeez 😂.

15.) 04 Jul 2019 21:44:20
do any of you really think that pistol pete and mr desmond can't and don't stand up to these other clubs, in our two we have very shrewed and tough businessmen.


16.) 05 Jul 2019 03:24:49
I’ve continually said on here I’d take no less than £30 million for tierney but £25 million seems to be the figure that sets the ball rolling ( too cheap in my opinion) with arsenal playing funny buggers, I’d like to see tierney stay, but if he’s to go I too hope it’s to Napoli, get it right round these EPL teams that think they’re the be all and end all.


17.) 05 Jul 2019 08:02:58
So if you were selling something say for £250 and somebody said £150 and you said no I’m looking for £250 you don’t think some people would then say what about £200 and you might say call it £225 and then sell?
If asking price is £25m and we are offered £22m there’s a decent chance a deal would be done.


18.) 05 Jul 2019 09:44:40
Arsenal are doing what Lawell has done for years. That strategy had seen us stall and go back. If Arsenal want to be contenders they really should not be looking at how we do stuff. Or did stuff. It seems that Peter tripped over the tin and somebody saw it before he could hide it again.


 

 

10 Jan 2019 07:24:28
Some reports this morning about the boy Andrew Gutman from the U. S possibly coming in. Apparently had a trial with rangers earlier in the season. With reports regarding Tierney and his hip problems, this one could be a possibility, not seen anything of this guy right enough.

It would seem after yesterday's performance we learned absolutely nothing from the betfred cup final. I've seen quotes from Lennon midweek saying" we will see a different Celtic than the one we saw in the final". Bull###t, then we get Forrest saying " we know the feeling from defeat last Christmas at ibrox and don't want it repeated". absolute clad coming from him considering he'd have been aswell already being in Dubai yesterday for all the input he had in that game. I'm fed up hearing how we've played X amount of games etc etc, these guys are paid handsomely and u can accept maybe 1 or 2 not at the races in any 1 game, but yet again in this fixture 80% of the team never bothered to turn up. I can accept defeat and it hurts but I'm also big enough to accept when we're well beaten, but what I can't accept is the lack of effort, the lack of fight, the lack of spirit, especially in that fixture, totally unacceptable. They must've played in the region of the same amount of games as we have yet looking at the past two encounters you wouldn't think that. This window could be historic for us. If we make the right signings in key areas and get them in quickly ( not the final day of the window) then we can kick on, but for these fans that think we'll strike this second half of the season, they'll fall away while we'll beat everyone in our path, where is the evidence so far to suggest this The past month or so our performances have been average at best, yes we've gotten results but if those performances continue and don't vastly improve we will inevitably slip up along the way. You can call that an over reaction, panty wetting etc etc but it's true, and let me say this, had we lost that betfred cup final and lost yesterday again to that mob with those performances, what would these fans with the blinkers on be saying then.

If they lose Morelos they will drop a fair few points in the 2nd half of the season. They will be confident of winning the title now though so might hold of selling with the hope of Champions League money next season. If not the title will go to the wire and at the moment they look hungrier.


 

 

29 Dec 2019 14:36:21
Yet again, another no show in that fixture. Not 1 player gets a pass mark. Could see from the first whistle only one team with the hunger the desire to win that match. We've been mediocre at best this past month or so and got good results. any fan out there that thinks this title is in the bag wants to take a right good look AGAIN. we stole that league cup and were honkin that day and go out and produce another honkin display again. Forrest especially, he needs dropped, and not just based on today's game but he's been rotten fur weeks now. I don't care we've won this, we've done that, bla bla bla, that today AGAIN is another shocking display against that mob, no hunger no desire feck all.

Garryc1977

1.) 29 Dec 2019 14:41:18
Brown and McGregor get pass marks. They covered every blade of grass and were fighting a losing battle by themselves all game.


2.) 29 Dec 2019 14:52:22
Broony and calmac did play well but our attacking players were nullified and it was so frustrating.


3.) 29 Dec 2019 14:54:19
Its easy to be critical especially when we lose like that. Brown was excellent imo. Johnston was terrible and worse than a player down offered absolutely nothing. didn't win a tackle kept on losing the ball, brushed off too easily. Has played in multiple derby games now and has been rank in the lot of them. Shows up for Hamilton. Julien played well, Christie was rotten today too. We looked better when Nitcham and Bitton came on as our midfield was overun yet again. Everytime they look stronger and I still feel we have better players in there. Our team looks tired and the winter break cannot come soon enough. We lost last year and went on a run after that to win title. Have faith we will be better after the break. hopefully. But he cannot persist with Mickey we really miss Mo.


4.) 29 Dec 2019 15:01:18
Brown McGregor and Frimpong get pass Mark's. Forrest is back to his old self and Johnston was to weak in attack. We end the year on a low but hopefully we regroup and add a few quality players and shift all the dead wood. Had The thug or Jack on for red card. Morelos delivers! Any onlookers looking to buy him will have left laughing at his crazy antics and price tag. Awe well beaten by the better team on the day. Drink and Drugs where invented for days like this.


5.) 29 Dec 2019 15:06:31
I don't know why Lennon persists in playing just 2 in the middle, they are always over running us in midfield and we were shocking.


6.) 29 Dec 2019 15:07:54
Broony played well.


7.) 29 Dec 2019 15:26:38
I think changing forrest to lw and christie to rw in previous games disrubted the flow we were playing good foodball before that, there have been signs in last few games we were riding our luck, only thing now is there will be a good look at new players were as if we won maybe there wouldn't be as much of a great deal.


8.) 29 Dec 2019 15:49:15
It was the forward line that let us down today. The top 4 were all rotten. Lennon took far too long to change it.


9.) 29 Dec 2019 15:49:55
Kev I thought Ajer and Julien played well. Had Morelos covered unlike the cup final. Though I haven't watched the goals back so not sure how culpable they were.


10.) 29 Dec 2019 16:31:57
Big buds I am a fan of ajer but he was shocking at their goal and the 2 corners that came before it.


 

 

07 Oct 2019 07:33:21
Been a while since I last posted but can't believe some of the comments after yesterday's result. aye the past two domestic results have been poor, at jobs we were denied 2 stonewall penalties and should've won that game, must say I never seen yesterday's as I spent all day in the A&E with my wife but by all accounts it was dire, wouldn't have helped by going down to 10 men but again from what I heard we were rotten with 11. Now anyone who thought we'd turn up at Livingston and win by 3/ 4/ 5 are deluded. I've seen Livingston at home against Aberdeen and secco and let me say Livingston should've won both those games. From what I've heard we turned up there yesterday with the completely wrong attitude as if we just had to turn up to win, that's no acceptable. Teams like Livingston will harass, bully and fight to get something and we should know this. It's only a month or so ago fans were waxing lyrical after the resul at ibrox now it's all doom and gloom. get a grip, do these moaners watch sevco when they play? They're rotten and winning by 5 goals at home to Hamilton certainly won't give me the fear. to these posters who feel we'll lose the title this year I say this, the only way we lose the title is by our own failings, nothing that sevco do will change that. If we do our business more often than not there will only be 1 final outcome come may. didn't realise the title got handed out yesterday.

1.) 07 Oct 2019 08:44:06
If we had a decent manager I would have agreed. Every time the chips have been down Lennon hasn't got us out of it. Poor manager that will cost us a lot more point's.
Beating cannon fodder at Parkhead isn't enough. Away games matter as well.


 

 

24 Aug 2019 13:03:30
Just read a piece there about big Wanyama. if there was any possibility of us getting him back up the road, even if it was only for this season then it must happen. I know some fans will say " Forster, Wanyama" that's going backwards. nonsense, IMO both enhance what we already have. what's your thoughts lads?

Garryc1977

1.) 24 Aug 2019 13:14:58
We don't loan signings, we need a settled squad instead of rebuilding every summer👍.


2.) 24 Aug 2019 13:15:25
Would love the big man back but can't this happening as I believe Club Bruges are trying to buy him for significant money.


3.) 24 Aug 2019 13:40:12
Bring the big fella home 💚 what a signing he would be. The complete midfielder.


4.) 24 Aug 2019 14:22:53
Unveiling a talent like Wanyama tomorrow before the game, would give the team and support a huge lift before two huge must-win games in Stockholm and Sevconia.


5.) 24 Aug 2019 15:01:08
11 million is the figure he's apparently going for. I wouldn't be upset at seeing that spent on him but you could imagine lawell swallowing his tongue at the mere suggestion.


6.) 24 Aug 2019 15:21:51
More likely be his hands. no hands no signatures on cheques.


7.) 24 Aug 2019 17:44:04
Wanyama left us for Southampton and £40k a week. What is he on now at Spurs. He must be on at least £75k. We can't waste money on a player who will never be ours.


8.) 24 Aug 2019 20:27:54
@malky loan signings have been pivotal in our success over the years. Likes of Roberts, Denayer, Benkovic have contributed to our success and these are players we had no chance of signing permanently so loans are important.


 

 

22 Aug 2019 17:20:00
Can't believe some of the negativity towards the Forster signing. If this guy ( and mind he's only 31) so still as a goalkeeper has plenty of football left in him, can come in and replicate the form he showed first time around then it'll be a great bit of business. Seen a post earlier about him not being able to catch a cross ball. when did Gordon last come off his line period? Only Bain comes for crossed balls but his performances of late are suspect aswell. For me Forster is better than what we have already.

Garryc1977

1.) 22 Aug 2019 17:26:59
IF? And IF he doesn't it's more money down the drain.


2.) 22 Aug 2019 17:41:29
Iwannabe isn't that a gamble with every signing?


3.) 22 Aug 2019 18:48:05
Iwannabe what are u on about. Who do u think we should sign so that is not an IF or gamble that we can afford as u put it. The guy hasn't even played yet and u r slagging him.


4.) 22 Aug 2019 21:47:32
I'm not slagging him I'm saying it's as bad as another project with the way his career has gone, this isn't the same player from 5 year ago and its the cheap option, off the top of my head I would like Joe Lewis or somebody that has been playing regular.


5.) 22 Aug 2019 21:48:18
More of a gamble when they hardly played in 2 year .

We simply need to turn up. no excuses. Last seasons games there were a joke. Too many players went into they’re shells. To a man they need to go out there and from the first whistle be right in about it, if they do that then we should do ok, if we sit off them and let them dominate and invite them onto us defensively it could be a long day. Very frustrated we’ve left it this late in the window to get a RB and LB in, especially Taylor who plays his football 20 minutes down the M77.

I personally think it’ll come down to the rosenborg result in this last qualifier. If they go out, or get a result tonight which more or less puts them out I think we’ll go for Meling. if they go through I think Meling will stay at rosenborg and we’ll go for the boy from killie. whatever happens this window up until now simply hasn’t been good enough by us . it really is that simple.

Jozo is done at Celtic. if the guy could stay fit long enough to play more than 1 in every dozen games then maybe he’d be better and more consistent. As for rogic, as someone else said, he must be on the best contract going at Celtic right now, his game playing ratio must be horrific and for a professional that cannot under any circumstance finish a full 90 minutes is an outrage, we’re paying this guy a handsome wage yit he spends most his time injured. What I am a bit concerned about is we’ve spent in the region of £12/ 13 million on bolingoli, Taylor, soro and klimala. Now all of those guys were playing in their respective teams first 11 yet they come to us and we have to let them settle? Why? They cannot be that unfit they can’t contribute, and I’m not just talking about last night. Come the summer AGAIN we need a solid CB and a better LB, Taylor’s ok but nothing more and bolingoli should go back to Austria or anywhere that someone will take him.

Elyounoussi and Forster at the moment are in loan. If they sign permanently then fine, but if not then come the summer we’re running about AGAIN looking for a winger and a keeper. Gordon will be off which I don’t think too many will mind which leaves Bain. Bain simply isn’t good enough to be first choice.

For me Taylor was a panic buy. We bought bolingoli and to be perfectly honest isn’t great and didn’t show well to start with so we went and bought Taylor at the tail end of the summer window. If Taylor had been good enough we’d have bought him first as he played his football 20 mins down the road so we knew exactly what he was capable of. Let’s be honest by in large bolingoli is a flop and clearly Lennon doesn’t fancy him when we’re playing a left winger in Hayes before him. Taylor must be sitting there wondering “ what have I done signing here” he can’t get in that team ahead of bolingoli, and he can’t get in the team ahead of a left winger, who by the way is out of contract in the summer. And before anyone says about Taylor not being able to play a wing back position, if that’s how Lennon likes to play he should’ve thought about that before signing him. For me I’d keep Taylor, try offload bolingoli and sign Meling from rosenborg.

The boy Meling should be an absolute stick on. Compared to the two LBs we have the guy looks great. £5/ 6 million we’ve spent in the summer on two LBs, boli isn’t the answer and is injured and Taylor I don’t think is fancied by Lennon. I’m sure Meling contract is up come Christmas, there must be a deal worth looking at there.

If possible, I’d sign Forster and elyounoussi permanently this month. I’d also like a CF, CB and a RW to compete with wee Forrest. I realise to do this it would take serious money, but it’s money I’d like to think the club have plus if we signed these players it gives us more than a fighting chance with the European qualifiers rather than tackling them the way we normally do.
