Celtic lining up a move for hapoel beer sheva defender Hatem Abd Elhamed. 28 years old can also play RB and is apparently available for 1.6m
Don't know how much truth there is to it but personally it sounds as if it's just another name thrown out there in our direction.

Anyone know if there is any truth to this Christian stuani link or is it usual paper talk?
I know he was amongst the top goal scorers in la liga and at 32 is a decent return for his age but I personally can't see this going anywhere and he's most likely going to stay in a better league.
Would love to see a different formation next season with 2 up top as this formation we play is far too predictable to teams now (I know it sounds daft as we've won 3 trebles with it) Just think it would give us better options/ ideas and the thought of a fully fit griff back playing with edouard would be great if it could work.
If lenny takes the job then hopefully he can get bayo upto speed and that's another option for us in attack, all the speculation is going to happen but no doubt we need faces out the door before we bring in better quality, especially defence and another 1 or 2 in attack.

What youse all thinking?

I don't see why we need 4 strikers but guess if we're going to play 2 up top then we need cover for them both. For that kind of money Stuani will cost I'd rather we spent big on the defence and not waste most of our budget on another striker.


2.) 30 May 2019 14:40:49
Apparently will Cost around 8mill plus Barcelona interested also.


3.) 30 May 2019 18:08:46
No way we are paying 8m for a 32 year old.


4.) 31 May 2019 00:17:15
I think this one is usual paper talk but that's what happens every transfer window with us, we're going to be linked with every player under the sun.


5.) 31 May 2019 00:51:35
Thats fantasy prices. there's not a snowballs chance we would pay that fee for someone in their prime never mind someone in their 30's.


6.) 31 May 2019 08:31:03

7.) 31 May 2019 13:52:44
Wylie that was a one off for a kid we knew had the ability to get us a good return on our money.

With last night's monstrosity still ringing over the fans heads, I as much as everyone else 100 percent blame Lennons selection and tactics for the defensive calamity on show.

Greenclover

1.) 14 Aug 2019 20:53:37
Do you blame Lennon for brown handling ball or bain not holding the ball? Team selection was wrong but it was those 2 errors more than tactics that put us out.


2.) 14 Aug 2019 21:15:14
jim they'll probably start blamein lennon for BRexit leveing to.


3.) 14 Aug 2019 21:40:47
But why did he play CalMac at left back?, and why did Brendan play him at left back at Ibrox, I think the reason is, they both wanted him in the team because he is one of our best players, but they also wanted Scott Brown in midfield, because of some misplaced sense of loyalty to our long serving captain, the problem isn't Neil Lennon in losing the Cluj game or Brendan in losing at Ibrox, the problem is Scott Brown, Neil Lennon has to get a grip, and start playing our best most attacking midfield, and it will have no place for Scot Brown.


4.) 14 Aug 2019 21:54:43
Those who defend Lennon are the reason he won't be sacked and the reason there will be a lot more tactical masterclasses from him this season just like last night and at Ibrox👎.


5.) 14 Aug 2019 22:05:08
Lennon and Brown can go.


6.) 14 Aug 2019 22:05:50
Totally agree.
Brown is great to have in the squad no doubt about it, however this is the time to blood in the team for the future.
What kind of confidence has been handed to Boli and Julien?
I'm not going to carry on moaning about what has happened qualifying is never a guarantee, and getting smashed in the CL isn't fun to watch.
Europa League is our level and we have to accept that.
Let's get a young hungry team picked and let's get cracking, another LB in and that will do me, enough cover everywhere else taking the young lads who need games into consideration, and try Bitton in the holding role he may prove a good replacement for Brown.


7.) 14 Aug 2019 22:18:37
Or even Ajer in the holding role the lads a beast and has captain material written all over him.


8.) 14 Aug 2019 23:19:13
So let’s me digest this properly. Celtic lose one game this season and Lennon should be sacked. Wow.


9.) 15 Aug 2019 00:02:56
Aindoh I 100% blame Lennon for last night poor team selection and poor game management individual errors on the park will always cost and brown and bain have to take responsibility for their parts but at 2-1 we have £10m worth of defenders sitting on the bench instead of replacing Johnston and brown to see the game out.


10.) 15 Aug 2019 02:01:07
There were only 3 players who were defensive minded in that line up. I don't know what Lennon was thinking. He was looking at blowing Cluj away just never happened.


I honestly think a lot of our players are believing their own hype Petrescu gave it they don't know how to lose. Barcelona this and DNA that rubbish that side would have been slaughtered if we qualified.

Wee red was out foxed The eyes were way off the ball ill prepared in my opinion. As much as I love Lenny he has to do a job for the team not Lawwell that means play your best players not force them out if they don't want to go pay them up tough that's the way it goes. Sinclair Lustig and Tierney were missed they are messing Sinclair around that's why Lustic left as he seen it coming why take the option and not play him. Wage would have been free to use on a top player. I think there's a bit of grumbling going on and the twitter faux pas not having that.


11.) 15 Aug 2019 06:23:56
Jaw1888,but my point is Brendan did the same thing, Brendan is hailed as a great coach and tactician and manager, all the things that the anti Lennon people accuse Lennon of not being, the problem is blatantly obvious, it is this insane loyalty to Scott Brown.


12.) 15 Aug 2019 09:01:58
Unfortunately there comes a time when players are not what they once were and Scott Brown is there. He is still an important member of the squad but when we are involved in high tempo games he has little or no influence on the game. It's simple down to age and the legs slowing down. Lennon needs to realise this and understand he can't play week in week out. Both last year in Europe and in the two away old firm games he simple couldn't get a kick of the ball due to this fact. It fine playing your Dundee and st Johnstone etc when it's at a snail pace which brown will control all day but once the tempo goes up then he is in trouble. Look at the way we played when brown was out and Calmac went to that position. Him Christie and rogic the pace of the game was super and we destroyed teams because they couldn't live with it. That pace is not possible with brown in the team. Again not for one second am l saying get rid of him but the manager needs to be smart in the way he uses him and what games. To play our best ball playing midfield at LB to accommodate both nitcham and brown was madness. For me Calmac is first choice every day of the week and chose one from the other two. Just being captain should not ensure u should start.


13.) 15 Aug 2019 09:50:32
Aindoh McGregor is only one of our best players if he I'd played in his natural position.

Lennon made a total count of it and if you can't see that then I have no idea what you were watching.

He made about 5-7 serious mistakes.


14.) 15 Aug 2019 09:57:35
And Rodgers got slaughtered for playing McGregor at LB. I can mind the live chat and we were going berserk.


15.) 15 Aug 2019 10:30:15
Yes but why did they play him at left back, it's because Scott Brown is undroppable, if McGregor had played instead of Brown in midfield, anybody could have played at left back, because Cluj would have been to busy trying to defend and cope with Celtics attack to bother about attacking themselves.


16.) 15 Aug 2019 11:32:38
No Rodgers played him at left back because KT wasn't fit and there was no left other left back.
Lennon sat a 3 million pound left back on the bench and played him there.
One that's played most the games this season.
If it was done because of an emergency then we wouldn't be going daft at him.


17.) 16 Aug 2019 11:37:16
Ice Man,
Lennon shouldn't have gotten the job very poor manager. We went from 1 of the best in Britain to a manager that had Hibs sitting 8th. No tactical awareness. Poor poor manager I would sack him immediately if it was my decision. We won't win the league under him.

Anyone any rumours regarding a transfer to a new kit manufacturer? 😂
That new 3rd kit is the final straw for me, sincerely hope this is the last year with them.

Was adidas not mentioned?


2.) 26 Jul 2019 17:17:10
I heard that Leon 30 million for 5 year deal? Not great tbh.


3.) 26 Jul 2019 17:24:20
Is that new top grey n pink or white n pink? Seen some pics n it looks different in each of them lol.


4.) 26 Jul 2019 18:03:22
Not a top I would buy personally but read comments saying it's linked in someway to Scott Brown's sisters charity and will raise money for that cause.


5.) 26 Jul 2019 21:38:46
If that's the case I will buy it. for my daughter.


6.) 26 Jul 2019 21:39:19
I read that had but can't see any official comment about it.


7.) 26 Jul 2019 21:33:15
If it was then they would need to advertise as that to get the greatest amount of publicity and then sales for the charity.


8.) 27 Jul 2019 01:45:18
Am not saying it's true but that's what a read online . As people have said, an official statement will help . But then it's like blackmail lol tug the heart strings .


9.) 27 Jul 2019 02:12:05
Adidas ain't no better. Man United have had some ugly kits of late.


10.) 27 Jul 2019 01:05:24
Most definitely aimed at female fans. It's a good idea. No real need for a 3rd kit anyways.


11.) 27 Jul 2019 12:41:02
Adidas was confirmed last week. Been an open secret for weeks.


 

 

23 Jul 2019 14:13:25
Hearing fenerbahce are interested in wanyama, would be highly ambitious and very unlikely but we should be trying to get him back by selling the likes of ntcham to fund it.
Would need to take a massive wage cut which is why it would be unlikely but then again he knows Lennon well and if he's even available for a season loan with an option to buy i'd take it.
Hes still only 28 and has plenty left to give, providing he stays injury free hence the reason for the season loan.

As for KT, napoli have apparently pulled out as they value him at 19m and can't sell one of there left backs to fund the move so doubt that will be happening, still got a feeling arsenal will table a 25m bid up front before there window shuts so just need to play it out and hope for the best he stays.

Greenclover

1.) 23 Jul 2019 15:29:24
I hope KT stays I really do, I want the academy players to stay for the long run, keep the faith in the club that we could compete in Europe once again.
I hope we don't stop recruiting based on KT staying.


2.) 23 Jul 2019 15:55:41
Ntcham and Rogic could fund a Wanyama bid - although whether big Vic wants to return to Scotland is a very different matter.


3.) 23 Jul 2019 16:23:42
Got to find someone to buy them 1st OAB.


 

 

21 Jul 2019 00:40:38
It's looking likely the Israeli boy will be signing and filling in at right back which would then more or less complete the defence, if we can get another RB for cover and hopefully KT stays then I reckon it's been a productive window!

That being said, what's everyone's thoughts on team selections/ formations etc? .

I feel like we've become a bit too predictable the past 18 months and teams are knowing how to play against us so I do think a change might be very beneficial considering lenny has always preferred 2 up top domestically then 1 striker in Europe.

Griffiths up top with edouard off him has the potential to be deadly so here's hoping it works out!

Greenclover

1.) 21 Jul 2019 08:43:58
I would like another striking option as Bayo's career has never taken off in almost a year, while Griff is still to regain his best form.
Sinclair is out in the cold with NL and Eddy is never a front-man.
We have never replaced Armstrong's goals from midfield, while Rogic is a sick-note and Ntcham is a malcontent. That's why we need to act.


2.) 21 Jul 2019 18:56:43
Bayo signed in January and has had a couple of injuries if he can stay fit he'll score goals.


 

 

14 Jul 2019 13:36:23
Hearing the KT deal being offered is in the region of 20m up front taking the deal up to 25m based on appearances.
I personally wouldn't accept anything than at least 25-30m up front the way the market is nowadays but if the decision is down to KT to further his development and career then we need to respect and accept that.
As of new signings I think we're getting to that stage where a few more signings need to be made asap, with money still left over from dembeles transfer last summer I think a quality right back and box to box midfielder are our priorities.

Greenclover

1.) 14 Jul 2019 16:57:03
Just been reported whatever deal they came up with has been declined.


2.) 14 Jul 2019 19:46:08
I've heard, from a mate who's been on the money about loads of stuff prior to it being public, that we value KT at 40M. Wether that's a straight fee or with add ons, I don't know but with the reported 25M just having been turned down, it looks like we're finally demanding the going rate for our players, SPFL or not.

All the fans not happy with this rb/ cb have they even seen the lad play before?
It honestly baffles me how an opinion can be made when they haven't even seen the guy play! All because he isn't the big money stand out European right back we've went for, think people also forget it's not as easy as signing players on fifa or football manager, convincing top players to come to this league can be a very difficult thing to do.
Yes, the guy may turn out to be a poor signing, or he could be a great signing or just about solid enough but I think until then when he's played and had a chance all the negativity from the plastic fans should have a lid on it, wouldn't be surprised if it's the same people who barely go to the matches every week.

Silvan widmer, right back for basel would be a good signing, 26 and swiss international with plenty of experience and a bit of pace.

Ruegg would be a decent addition and definetely one to develop, if he's there captain at 21 he'll probably have a high price tag on him though.

I remember Lennon saying that kev and I agree Garry that injuries/ issues will play a part this season but has a striker even had a solid link to us since the transfer window opened?
Unless they're waiting until later in the window or the last minute to see what position we're in then I can't see anything happening otherwise we would have already made attempts for another striker.

We habe Edouard Griffiths and bayo who we've still to see play so can't see us spending big when we have 3 strikers already.
As for a defender and midfielder, hopefully we get this israeli boy and look for another back up right back or centre half for cover,
We still need a solid physical midfielder to help the likes of brown and mcgregor if we get to the group stages but that would probably be dependant if we sell ntcham and kouassi, can't see that happening but.

If we do get through to the group stages I can't see us playing the same formation with the same players against all the top teams who will just run over the top of us.
We do have a lot of midfielders but we're still missing something there if we're going to try and make a game of it in Europe.
McGregor is suited to browns position but what if he gets a bad injury?
Christie, great engine and will run all day but winning tackles and breaking up play isn't his strongest point, it's getting the ball and running with it and making a pass.
I wouldn't want ntcham in the team after his performances last season and his attitude recently so that's why I'm saying we could be doing with another quality midfielder who will bring something different, let's not forget as bad as it sounds saying it, sevco ran all over the top of us at ibrox last season because there midfield were playing together, even though with the quality we have it should have been the other way around so there is clearly something missing there for us.
If we played 4-5-1 in Europe with brown mcgregor and another solid player in the middle with forrest and christie on the wings and edouard up top I think that would make us far more difficult to break down.
