Loan move for Ferguson from Brighton with option to extend. He's fallen down the pecking order and needs game time. Apparently Desmond and BR are big fans.


1.) 27 Jan 2024 09:53:57
I seen him scoring a hat trick in the EPL last season.
A big strong lad.

2.) 27 Jan 2024 10:13:55
That the same Ferguson that Chelsea are interested in for £100m?

3.) 27 Jan 2024 10:44:44
Not a chance.

4.) 27 Jan 2024 10:53:56
Utter nonsense . ???.

5.) 27 Jan 2024 11:10:19
Well he going to Spurs so that's that put to bed not that it was ever happening spurs swapping Bryan Gil plus cash apparently.

6.) 27 Jan 2024 19:57:45
Definitely should be after someone like him! 19 and would bully Goldson etc! Push the boat out and bring him in - then build a team around him. He's affordable if the board care enough to give us what we deserve. Ferguson and Mctominay in, CCV signed up long term and then bring in another world class GK like De Gea and the blue side of Glasgow won't know what's him them. I'd also like to move Abada on and bring another player in as he's never going to be happy here now.

7.) 28 Jan 2024 15:31:33
Regiblinkered is a very apt name after that post hahaha. Ferguson is a 50million plus pound striker. Might as well talk about signing mbappe while your at it.

8.) 28 Jan 2024 19:18:00
Mbappe and Ferguson in the same sentence is wild, Cory mate. Ferguson is gettable - we sold Jota for 25m, we could be selling O'Reilly for 30m + - why can't we go spend that money on Ferguson, Mctominay, and pay De Gea to get him back into football? It's clear the board don't care here.



03 Jun 2021 17:42:07
If Ange is to get the job does Ed or anyone else know who his backroom team are likely to be?


{Ed007's Note - Apparently Celtic have agreed compensation for Ange Postecoglou along with Shaun Ontong and John Hutchinson - them and Kennedy & WGS Jnr?}

1.) 03 Jun 2021 19:03:15
Lennedy must have something on DD. We keep hearing he's rated highly yet when he had his chance he blew it by playing the same players formation and tactics.

2.) 03 Jun 2021 19:38:34
Ed do you know if the Celtic women's team coach has a full UEFA licence? If so I would rather have him in the dug out until Ange gets the all clear or necessary licences And have Ange in the dug out also rather than LENNEDY.

{Ed007's Note - I've no idea if Fran Alonso has them, Tony.}

3.) 03 Jun 2021 21:14:35
I think Fran Alonso has U. E. F. A Pro License in progress, and U. E. F. A A License.

4.) 04 Jun 2021 11:26:27
I am 99% sure as long as your coaching team has them your ok.

5.) 04 Jun 2021 12:21:55
What makes you 99z% sure.

6.) 04 Jun 2021 15:40:42
I do know Gerrard didn't have all his badges when he started with Sevco.

7.) 04 Jun 2021 16:06:22
Regardless of h9w good Ange is, it will depend on the budget to replace rubbish for good. 8f he isn't backed he will fail because we need quality and thst costs. Quality and cost two sweaty world's with our board of cheapskate punt lovers.

8.) 04 Jun 2021 17:28:10
Apparently Kevin Muscat is joining backroom team.

9.) 04 Jun 2021 17:45:24
Magic, agreed, and if anything I believe the club will need to go even bigger with the budget to give Big Ange even a smell of a chance. He's coming from the other side of the world and whilst he may know one or two players he'd like to bring with him I would hope the bulk of them will be players who have been playing in Europe for a few years and who can produce the goods whilst he gets up to speed.
However, as you say, Celtic FC and spending money is not normally a good mix. HH.

10.) 04 Jun 2021 18:03:59
dnn38, I saw that too but it's one of many rumours but doesn't seem to have any real substance. YET!
Nothing would surprise me though. If he does come it wouldn't be a problem, he was never a real Sev anyway and if Big Ange thinks he's good enough then he must be. HH.

11.) 04 Jun 2021 18:44:48
Would not have that guy anywhere near the club. Not good enough as a manager . and well as a player he made Terry Hurlock look like the fairy godmother.



23 Nov 2020 15:54:56
Another website is claiming a very well placed source told him Lennon was on a final warning after the last sevco game. Now O'Neill, Keane and Howe have been contacted and interest has come back from at least one of them.

Dunno how much to believe but Id like to think Lennon's time is up.

I must also say I love Lennon and he should never have been given the job permanently. If he goes I'm sure we will all wish him the very best. It's not not worked out.


1.) 23 Nov 2020 18:17:21
If that was his final warning; there was a draw at Pittodrie, a 1-4 home defeat to Sparta Prague and then Saturdays' draw at Hibs since then, so he must be on his, final, final, final warning.

2.) 23 Nov 2020 18:54:06
Read that website and must admit it sounds like pish tae me! Yellow card after the currants game, and since then we’ve been been woeful! Topped off by a pathetic performance against Sparta Prague! Can’t see how that can happen!

3.) 23 Nov 2020 22:12:46
I was surprised to see him writing about celtic when I got sent a link. He’s an expert on all things sevco. Wouldn’t give anything he writes a second thought.

4.) 23 Nov 2020 23:40:56
Report claims Lennon staying with board backing him Herald sport.

5.) 24 Nov 2020 08:11:45
I’m afraid that’s the most likely outcome here rich with Kennedy taking the reigns a close second, neither gives me any confidence and definitely won’t inspire the players, we need a clean break.



06 Jul 2020 06:07:54
Any truth in the Nicky Pope rumours? Would make a good headline if nothing else haha.


1.) 06 Jul 2020 08:20:48
Burnley Keeper Nick Pope? No chance we will sign him, he'll be England's no. 1 for the next few years and will move to a top 4 team down south.



28 Jun 2019 18:55:52
Any truth in the Adidas kit deal I've heard being mentioned? They'll have to change the seats in the North stand upper if so haha.


1.) 28 Jun 2019 19:02:33
Would be first time. Had a nike tick up there at one point did it not?

2.) 28 Jun 2019 20:47:29
theres a guy on twitter (B4 u say it I know ) : he posted that we are looking at a 5 year deal worth £35m and that we are in talks with ADDIDAS and KNAPPA.

3.) 28 Jun 2019 21:26:29
When does the one we have run out?

4.) 28 Jun 2019 21:58:51
End of this season Kev.

5.) 28 Jun 2019 23:20:07
Not sure how we agree to these figures to be honest. I know it’s a big sum in Scotland but we sell massive amounts of training gear and kits. We are well televised over the world, I appreciate we aren’t in a money league like the premier but some of their deals are well over what we get. Arsenal signed a deal with Adidas for over £50 million a season. I’d be surprised if we didn’t outsell them by 3-4 to 1.

6.) 28 Jun 2019 23:34:30
Well you can be sure the pistol will have something lined up.

7.) 29 Jun 2019 05:38:48
Sorry Quinn but I doubt more Celtic shirts are sold than Arsenal never mind 3-4/ 1.

8.) 29 Jun 2019 08:40:03
Arsenal sell shirts 4-1 to our shirt sales Quinn, if not more. Look at the European shirt sale table, they sit about 7th, we don't feature in the top 20.

9.) 29 Jun 2019 10:57:34
How much is our current new balance deal worth?

10.) 29 Jun 2019 12:57:35
I've had tops since the Umbro days and the current New Balance gear is some of the best. My first Nike top suffered bobbling in the wash but admittedly they did get better over the seasons. The logos on the old NT: tops used to keep coming off. I wear Adidas on the gold course though and its all good stuff too, a tad expensive though.

11.) 29 Jun 2019 13:03:39
That's one thing we can't slag pistol for the man knows how to run a business we're lucky to have him and I know he has his faults.

12.) 29 Jun 2019 13:24:07
C'mon Kev you need to listen to some of the punters on here - PL will be too busy sabotaging transfer deals and ruining out club to be actually bringing us in another multi million deal.

13.) 29 Jun 2019 13:37:13
Would love an Adidas kit! Tbh the designs and quality of NB kits have been Tom Kite, especially that new thing.

14 May 2024 20:06:14
Ed just a silly hypothetical but what if a feeder club of ours put in a good bid for Butland then loaned him to us? Does this sort of thing happen?


{Ed007's Note - I doubt Shamrock Rovers can afford £21 million HT mate ?????? It probably has went on over the years but I doubt it would be allowed now.}

1.) 14 May 2024 20:23:18
Why the obsession with Buttplug? He's decent at best. Can't recall too many wonder saves. He's saved a lot coz their defence is rubbish. He ain't even close to be worthy of crossing the city looking for silverware.

2.) 14 May 2024 21:28:15
Reminds me of a cracking dodgy deal HT. Apparently Porto owed a hefty sell-on to James Rodriguez's old team so when Monaco signed him and Moutinho, the rumour was that they set up the deal so they only paid €1M for James and about €60M for Moutinho so Porto barely had to pay any sell-on. I'm sure it's a lot of nonsense but still quite clever.

3.) 14 May 2024 21:27:21
Hahaha Ed ???.

{Ed007's Note - ??



07 Feb 2024 11:00:44
Does anyone think Maeda could do a job as a full back? He'd be a nightmare to be up against and let's be honest, he's not the most reliable going forward. Can't argue with his work rate.


1.) 07 Feb 2024 11:25:41
Missing Hatate is brutal because he’s so versatile.

Hatate can play either fullback position and I’m sure he would’ve been left back tonight if he was available.

Hatate was MOTM at right back, when Celtic won there 4-0 last season.

2.) 07 Feb 2024 12:33:01
I agree we're missing Hatate, Buzz, but I'm talking about Maeda. Also I think Hatate is wasted a bit at full back as his vision and creativity really allows Kyogo to flourish.

3.) 07 Feb 2024 13:11:32
Maeda. Fullback. No.

4.) 07 Feb 2024 13:39:44
Thanks for the reasoning SmKmeAkipper ?.

5.) 07 Feb 2024 13:48:33
I’m sure Maeda would be useful as a wing back but he would be wasted as a fullback in a flat back 4.

6.) 07 Feb 2024 14:01:53
An in form Hatate makes us a completely different stronger team.

7.) 07 Feb 2024 18:30:52
Can Iwata play cb, lb and Rb too?



31 Jan 2024 10:34:10
Ed I would love to hear your opinion on the current situation (that is before we've signed anyone) . Is this on PL? Mark Lawwell? BR?
And do you have major concerns going forward?

Personally I feel BR hasn't been backed properly and the players we have don't seem to suit his play. That said, it's up to him to get good performances and the 2 Sevco games aside, we've been pretty awful all season. I'm not sure what the answer is but I'm still confident we will win the league. Europe terrifies me though.


{Ed007's Note - I blame Dermot Desmond for allowing the Club to stagnate, the same old faces on the board for years who obviously don't understand the modern game - it is verging on criminal that Celtic do not have a DOF - and we need to modernise from the boardroom down but I'm not convinced that Michael Nicholson has the balls for that particular fight, maybe (hopefully) that will change when DD's son takes over.
Like you my concerns going forward are in Europe, we are missing quality in key positions - right through the spine of the team - at that level and unless that is addressed in the summer the CL will be another disaster.}

1.) 31 Jan 2024 14:40:37
Thanks as always. Is there any murmers of a director of football coming in? When Ange was here I thought he was the type to take over that type of role eventually - or know someone that could.

{Ed007's Note - Nah, it's been quiet on that front as well.}

2.) 31 Jan 2024 14:56:11
Unless our board have a Baldrick plan up their sleeves for summer recruiting, it is disappointing we are getting in another teams 3rd choice striker and potentially giving him game time. SVH going to Norwich and this guy coming to us on loan.

I was one who thought we had to wait out our summer signings to see how they developed but like then, no new GK or LB. A striker who won't challenge Kyogo nd possibly not Oh when he comes back. It is very strange.

Now Hatate injured again and we are sending out players on loan or selling them, with no cover or replacements.

Very poor planning even if there is a plan in place to buy certain players in the summer, who were not available just now.

Very, very, very disappointing and I am not sure if I would believe it if the club claimed they had been after numerous players and couldn't push the deals through.

The club across the city somehow manage to get players in and they have no money.

Embarrassing for a club our size.

3.) 31 Jan 2024 15:21:07
Idah is only joining on loan with no option to buy as Oh is prolonging his stay at the Asain Cup. Clearly the club was waiting to see if players would be back before signing anyone which makes sense to be fair.



28 Aug 2023 16:56:30
Hi I've a question for Ed or Buzz. With the champions league draw this Thursday, is there any possibility of us being moved up to pot 3 depending on the outcomes of the qualifiers (I. E. Sevco)


{Ed007's Note - I seen this a few days ago and took a note of it. For Celtic to move up to Pot 3 we need Copenhagen to lose to Rakow Czestochowa, Young Boys to lose to Maccabi Haifa, Braga to lose to Panathinaikos, AEK Athens to lose to Royal Antwerp and Galatasaray to lose to Molde.}

1.) 28 Aug 2023 18:05:33
So you’re saying there’s a chance then ?.

{Ed007's Note - It's got about the same amount of chance as one of Timalloy's horse tips ?

2.) 28 Aug 2023 18:08:27
Stuck they results in a coupon and it comes in at 1087/ 1 ? pot 4 it is then ?.

{Ed007's Note - ??

3.) 29 Aug 2023 07:53:28
Cheers, Ed.

{Ed007's Note - ??



14 Aug 2023 17:49:35
Hi Ed I've seen PL getting a bit of stick this week regarding lack of transfers. What's his job now exactly? I didn't think he had much to do with that side of things nowadays?


{Ed007's Note - Daddy Lawwell is the Non-executive Chairman and has no control or say what so ever in the day to day running or any major decisions of the company.
Non-executive Chairman - As a "non-executive", the Chair is impartial and can use this distance to maintain an objective position, albeit with the duty of representing the interests of all shareholders. Their role is to ensure the board as a whole considers issues, and reaches decisions. The Chair does not make unilateral decisions, impose their will, or unduly influence the opinions of other board members.
A good Chair has excellent listening skills, and is able to bring people together constructively.
Non-executives tend to be very experienced professionally and must be able to hold the board to account in a sensitive manner in order to maintain effective management.
As someone who is independent from the business they are also able to provide third party governance.}

1.) 14 Aug 2023 18:13:56
Out of curiosity, why is he suddenly the face of Celtic at board level?

I don't recall other non-exec directors taking a front row seat.

{Ed007's Note - Bankier was always around when there were major announcements but imo I don't think Nicholson is comfortable being out there publicly and in front of cameras which if true is a good thing.}

2.) 14 Aug 2023 19:07:59
Thanks as always. How do you see the rest of the window playing out?

{Ed007's Note - Each passing day is making me worry that little bit more but I'm still hopeful that we will get improvements in the positions we need, especially a GK. Barring any last minute hitches it looks like Livakovic is off to Turkey so once that's finalised the Club can move on and I'd like to think that there's been at least talks with the next name on that GK list.}

3.) 14 Aug 2023 19:58:13
I think I read you explain his non-exec role when he returned, but it gave me a 'whitey' when I saw his big baw face at the flag day ha ha.

{Ed007's Note - Even look at it from a common sense point of view - and if you want to completely ignore things like corporate governance etc - why would Celtic pay Nicholson a CEO salary and all the perks if he isn't doing the job and Daddy Lawwell is?
One of THE most important reasons that Daddy Lawwell had to be connected to the Club in some capacity - even between the CEO & Chairman jobs - is so that he can continue on the ECA board and on UEFA's Professional Football Strategy Council. A lot of people don't realise how important it is that a "smaller" Club like Celtic and to a lesser extent the Scottish game, to have a man at that level of football governance.}

4.) 14 Aug 2023 21:22:33
Ed007 there have been several times recently where you have explained Peter Lawwell’s position within the club but as usual there are fans who blame him for everything if things don’t go the way they want.

{Ed007's Note - If people want to blame him for the things that go wrong then to the same extent he must be due praise for all the good as well, appointing Ange (which he did play a part in after all) backing Ange and his plan, delivering trophies, trebles, players like Kyogo, O'Riley, CCV, appointing Baby Lawell and Rodgers, the profit on Jota etc etc etc and all the money we get in sponsorships etc
If Daddy Lawwell has been and still is running the show I want to know what the actual feck people are moaning about, because we haven't splashed money out apart from the 5 new signings of course?
CCV and Jota were signed on the last day of the window when Ange came in, how have they worked out for us?
I understand the frustration but let's wait until the window closes and see where we actually are squad wise.}

5.) 14 Aug 2023 22:34:11
I've still not forgiven him for Steven fletcher. ?.

6.) 15 Aug 2023 07:36:48
Well said Ed, it's always PL's fault even though he no longer is in a position to make decisions but if people think he still is, why are they not praising him for CCV, AJ, Kyogo, Maeda and in particular Jota who just made us 25 million.

It's the same for those who claim we are not doing business as quickly as Ange did, we have 5 in this window already, the same as Ange, the players are underwhelming, the same they said about Kyogo, Jota, AJ etc.

2 games, 2 wins, better than Anges start, yet we are not happy.

Sometime we an sound entitled and that is the trophy they win every year, not us.

{Ed007's Note - We're all frustrated at the lack of new signings but for all we know the guys in charge of it might feel the same way.}

7.) 15 Aug 2023 11:43:58
Lawell Da, The Ghost of Dithering Past, even being back in any capacity is a worry. I know the rules regarding his role etc, I just think he exudes caution effin aboot, buying duds and never preparing for the CL, which caused us to fail to reach it 9 out of 12 attempts, utterly dismal, some businessman though, if your business is missing the biggest market in football due to you being a cheapskate ditherer. I had hoped he was gone for good . Hopefully he will be well out of anything that matters. He needs to be.

8.) 15 Aug 2023 16:49:25
Most people believe you Ed about Peter. lawell, current role at Celtic but it doesn’t fit in with their negative view of Board and transfers in and out . Our Board in General and Lawall in particular have in general been blamed for selling our best players. Truth is it’s a long time since our better players were only sold, after players insisted . SPL as a league is not recognised as a popular exciting league to play in . Its winter season lasting 6 mths, poor pitches, poor attendance apart from games involving Celtic and Rangers, continuous poor refereeing and VAR decisions, all add up to making the task of attracting new players to SPL more difficult than other leagues containing teams of our ilk.

9.) 15 Aug 2023 17:02:43
There were many of the nine out of 12 attempts when the fault did not lie solely with PL. PL wasn’t to blame for goalkeeper or defender’s error in allowing soft goals to prevent us qualifying . Equally he wasn’t to blame for players missing rather easy opportunities to score . My memories are that we felt most yrs our team was good enough to qualify.

Just one other point, PL was blamed completely for not signing Fletcher, yet our Manager at that time didn’t rate him.

Seriously though some guys on here just want us to buy for buying's sake. We already have too many players not good enough that we can't seem to get rid of. Miovski, Shankland would be the exact same

We've a few days left so let's wait and see. We all know how hard it is to get good transfers done in this window.
