Supposedly made an approach for James Lea Siliki as a replacement for Ntcham.

1.) 10 Jul 2019 13:47:28
hope so he's got mad silky skills.

2.) 10 Jul 2019 14:23:26
They knocked back Porto so that'll be that.

3.) 10 Jul 2019 16:03:01
We've got cash to spend Mally. If you think what we would get for Ntcham it'll go some way towards his fee.

4.) 10 Jul 2019 16:12:15
Would be a real statement of intent if we do get him but just can't see it happening.

5.) 10 Jul 2019 16:43:32
Jim a hope your right mate but it sounds a non starter.

6.) 10 Jul 2019 18:37:17
Tommy Smith on his way to sign, has said goodbye to his team mates according to Twitter rumours.

7.) 10 Jul 2019 18:53:49
1.5 million.

8.) 10 Jul 2019 18:59:32
Sorry 2.5 million,3 year.

9.) 10 Jul 2019 21:12:56
Is tommy smith a good signing lads. I don't know to much about him seems to be decent from way fellow posters are sounding.



17 Jun 2019 13:15:57
Lustig looks set for a move to Gent. I wish him all the best. A good servant and somebody who clearly took the club to his heart.

1.) 17 Jun 2019 16:12:57
I think he'll leave with everyones best wishes, great servant and a very likable guy. Thanks for the memories pc lustig. 🍀.

2.) 17 Jun 2019 17:10:54
Great servant good luck old bhoy.



22 May 2018 05:53:57
According to a couple of papers we have 9 days to come up with 10m for Edouard. Interesting.

1.) 22 May 2018 07:05:53
Papers jim it'll b a lot less than that ad Imagine.

2.) 22 May 2018 07:20:37
Rodgers confirmed himself That it was way less than the original 9 million quotes by the papers so that just tells you.

3.) 22 May 2018 08:53:09
Few reports saying it's around 5 million then add ons and sell on fee that could take it a lot higher.

4.) 22 May 2018 09:14:57
That sounds more like a ransom than a transfer lol.
We already agreed a deal for £7m so we can get him for that, no way we will even pay that much tbh.

5.) 22 May 2018 09:34:52
Sevco hacks stirring rubbish that isn’t there. Boy are they hurting.

Rogers stated the figure is nowhere near what was floated, by the same Sevco hacks.

We are trying to sign him and I think we will. Another Hunskelper signing is their worst nightmare.

Sweet Dreams.

6.) 22 May 2018 09:45:52
Mally/ Ken, I thought Rodgers just said that it wasn't 7m?

7.) 22 May 2018 10:04:50
It's not 7 million the gaffer came out and told the press that weeks ago.

8.) 22 May 2018 10:54:55
Even if it is, we will treble that when he moves on in a couple of years. That’s killing them too. :)

9.) 22 May 2018 11:00:21
O was wondering about this 10 million Brendan has came out and told us it's less than the 7 million first quoted so could the 10 mill include his wages and bonuses for in thinking 5 yr contract hh.

10.) 22 May 2018 11:37:40
Jim a thought he ment lower than 7 mate maybe nearer the 5 mill mark.

11.) 22 May 2018 12:06:30
£5m would be a steal. We know what we are getting, it ain't no gamble he is worth every penny. I also think having Edouard and Ntcham at the club is very good for Dembele.

12.) 22 May 2018 12:08:52
I’m thinking he will be round about the same price as Ntcham, similar contract aswell.

13.) 22 May 2018 13:52:01
Obviously the lower the better Mally. Getting into 8 figures suddenly makes a deal seem more of a risk. For arguments sake, if Dembele was to be sold for 20-30m, then I'd be ok spending 10m on Edouard. But ideally I'd like Dembele and Edouard.

14.) 22 May 2018 14:02:54
It's going to be a bit of a quiet week with a lot of players on holiday so it's big news for the them. If eddy gets over the line added to the renewals it's a good start. I don't think psg will be looking to extend a loan deal with the exposure he has had with us as it has alerted a few clubs who will pay more than our 5m+ add-ons.

15.) 22 May 2018 23:12:42
must be true if its in the Hun loving press.

16.) 23 May 2018 12:41:44
4m i heard.



30 Oct 2017 17:45:03
KT signs new 6 year deal. Brill.

1.) 30 Oct 2017 19:16:40
Great news


Get in Son . HH.



08 Aug 2017 11:09:49
Reports suggesting Paddy Roberts sees us as his preferred option on the table. With his rep meeting with Citeh (I'd guess he isn't part of their plans this season) get something done Celtic! I'd even take another loan if that was to be it, his position was the no.1 target for me this window and I'd rather have him for a year than not at all. A permanent deal would be great however we'd want the buy-back clause to be worth several million profit, just to make sure we don't end up losing anything spent more than anything.

1.) 08 Aug 2017 12:06:30
I'd hope they'd make him a Celtic player properly now; If a loan, surely we want the right to buy.

Presumably, Roberts thinks he might make the grade at City in time, and I think we can all respect that.

2.) 08 Aug 2017 14:40:20
Hi ED, have you heard anything about this? thanks in advance.

{Ed007's Note - City want a permanent deal and it looks as if Paddy's only wanting a loan deal.}

3.) 08 Aug 2017 15:21:17
Oh fur **** sake paddy bhoy. get your self back up here.

4.) 08 Aug 2017 17:00:43
rumours are he is scared of all the mad ferrets in manchester.

Big opportunity for Dom. With the talk of fans groups wanting boycotts and protests - it's a chance for him to implement his ideas about 'engagement'. A word he kept using. Early impressions are that he's likeable. Perhaps we can see a fans forum again, so that these groups and the support as a larger entity could get some more in-detail answers as to what the clubs decision process has been at several points of the last couple of seasons.

1.) 03 Jul 2021 17:16:27
Although I am still dumfounded by the incompetence, complacency and abject failure of last season, we have to let Dom McKay and Ange get on with the job in hand with 100% focus and support, with no distractions or side-shows that fuel negativity and bad feeling. Lawell has left the building and DD has been ultra conspicuous by his silence and absenteeism. Give the new regime a chance to succeed.

2.) 03 Jul 2021 19:14:38
Fair comment OaB. But do you not think it might be a good opportunity for our new CEO to get rid of some of that silence and absenteeism? I can't see it affecting the manager or the players to be honest. The rags might paint an exaggerated picture of turmoil and unrest but that's it.



29 Jan 2021 07:58:35
PL away! Would have been quite happy for him to take a step back and solelt focus on the money side of things but that hasn't happened in the decade I've been complaining about him making football decisions so I have to say I'm pleased.

1.) 29 Jan 2021 08:09:34
So big the big changes are starting, wonder how long it’ll take to make management changes that are badly needed.

2.) 29 Jan 2021 08:41:51
PL is a fantastic CE and has done amazing with the role. The issue is his rumoured inference with football matters. If true I doubt he would have been able to not be involved. A clean break was probably required. Now I'd like to see news of a new DOF and Head Coach.

3.) 29 Jan 2021 09:18:26
Same BB. Hopefully this is the statr of a long needed shake up behind the scenes.

4.) 29 Jan 2021 09:40:33
Fingers crossed this is the start of some real change at CP.

5.) 29 Jan 2021 12:38:25
the start of a long process as i believe over the next season we will see the desmond family sell their controlling interest or at least dilute them and a lot of the major share holders do like wise, this will happen once/ if the current situation gets better and the finance returns to football. a new era will begin under new ownership it could take sometime for this to happen and it will be an up and down period before were the force we were.

{Ed007's Note - I just can't see Desmond selling his shares unless it was a crazy over the odds amount of money and even then at least one of his sons would be furiously against it.}



08 Oct 2020 14:02:21
Ok, so now that the transfers are in: We've signed several decent quality players and haven't lost any key ones (much to the manager's detriment, apparently) , generally speaking, what would be you're strongest XI bhoys?






5 of mine are new signings (including Moi) so a very good window really.

1.) 08 Oct 2020 14:24:48
No brown? Scott is a must start for me .

2.) 08 Oct 2020 14:42:45
Brown in that for me! Last week showed what we’re like without him! Yes he’s getting older and should be rested more, but he’s still vital. a midfield of McGregor christie and Elyounoussi is powder puff!

3.) 08 Oct 2020 16:33:44
There'll be games we need Brown no doubt about it but it's only really that grit and leadership he now brings. On the whole I think we could be a much more dangerous side without him. But hey, I was only wanting to hear peoples opinions and in a way I'm still glad people rate Broony's qualities.

4.) 08 Oct 2020 16:54:22
Grit and leadership are what wins these derbies Jim .

5.) 08 Oct 2020 17:10:25
Last week showed what he brings when he is coming of the bench, I think that is where he can make his best contribution, the poor performance last week was down to the mix in the team, it will need tweaked and finessed, are you all forgetting the poor performances from the previous week's and weeks when Scott played the whole of the games, let him be captain from the bench.

6.) 08 Oct 2020 17:37:46
Possibly D+P. There are game though where better football is what wins. Like I say. Brown will have his role to play. Personally I'd start him in the derby and look to bring on a better footballer against tired legs.



02 Aug 2020 18:38:04
Result 👍
Scoreline 👍
Performance wise, I actually thought we were a bit pedestrian, particularly the first half. Taylor, who I've been critical of was good going forward and deserved a couple of assists. Frimpong just as good on the other side. Edouard, according to McAvennie (who as much is a sound lad whenever I've met him has been p*ssed) doesn'tlook interested, top marks for me. Showed real strikers instinct and desire today. Forrest upped his game 2nd half. Disappointed with Mo, because I had him to score on my coupon. But on the whole that's a good start, to think we weren't in top gear it's really encouraging. Top of the league. Hopefully we shall not be moved.

1.) 02 Aug 2020 18:53:37
Thats big Julie Anne got more goals against celtic than more or less hahaha.

2.) 02 Aug 2020 18:53:41
I thought our intensity was brilliant from the first whistle and Celtic managed to get 4 corners in the first 12 minutes.
After watching behind closed door games all summer, I felt we played at the same tempo as if there were fans at the game. Which is a big plus going forward.
That’s 2 competitive games in a row Celtic have scored 5 goals. ( 5 V St. Mirren )
It was a perfect start for the Champions.

3.) 02 Aug 2020 19:35:44
Might be a blessing playing with no crowd as there isn't the means and groans when a cross is over hit etc. I thought with 5 subs available there might have been more of a role for the guys on the bench.



09 Mar 2020 17:42:09
So the new Adidas away kit has been 'leaked'. Doesn't look much better an image than some of the concept kits so I have my doubts but it's a cracker if real. Really smart.

1.) 09 Mar 2020 18:37:29
Got a link? Must admit really looking forward to the new kits if it is Adidas.

2.) 09 Mar 2020 19:11:35
That leaked kit looks amazing. Surely can't be ours. Would be our best kit to date if true.

3.) 10 Mar 2020 05:55:04
Aye it's not real 😂.

4.) 10 Mar 2020 07:54:52
It's just a mock up top.

Was the next big thing at Milan but hasn't lived up to it. Doesn't seem to have done too badly at Rennes and his quality might show in the SP but on a reported 60k a week i wouldn't bother.

Agreed Nicky. I prefer my goalkeepers to be good with their hands than their feet but it's the way a lot of teams are going now and Forster wouldn't fit that style.

You have to go to season 17/ 18 when we last had a positive net spend on transfers. I can't see that changing now - especially as Auf says after the impact of lockdowns etc. Dom might be in but it's the same board and shareholders and they won't change their spots - we won't suddenly see a large net spend. What we hopefully will see with Dom in and Ange apparently having a big influence, is HOW the money is spent.

Get him to the level he was season before last BB and he'd be a fantastic signing.

Hail Hail Andy. When it comes to coaching we're all just looking from the outside in really. It's the managers ideas he's largely coaching the players and if he's good enough for the manager he's good enough for me.

Perhaps he doesn't have the intention or knows his limitations. He won't be the first or the last coach in that boat.

Fair points Ed. Do you think he'd be after his own gig somewhere at a lower level/ somewhwere with less pressure. I was delighted he didn't follow BR whether it's the club or personal reasons he stayed here I'm glad he did and as long as managers keep opting for him I hope he stays.

Whilst on the manscape is it Cork Paul I need to see about a refund? Mine's no working and I'm sick of beating round the bush! (Cough)

{Ed007's Note - I though it would have been best for all involved if Kennedy had left to take over and be his own man when the Lawwell era ended, that's why I'm starting to wonder if he does actually want to be a manager/head coach?
Paul can send you some slimfast instead...... 😁

We certainly need full backs that are technically better to play that way. You need to be able to turn with the ball and find a team mate. From what I've seen Hickey looks better and braver with the ball than Taylor. Taylor was only ever going to be back up for me.

I'd be lying if I said I was impressed by his short managerial stint Ed. In his defence he didn't have the time to try and pick up a side that looked totally void of confidence or ideas. Deep down I knew he wasn't going to be our manager but there's a big difference between a manager and a coach. Like you say, a coach largely bounces off the ideas of a manager.

{Ed007's Note - I think even he knew that he wasn't going to get the job permanently so why not try something a bit different, even to maybe catch another club's eye? He could have started using some of the youngsters, get the players moving the ball a bit quicker, even if the results weren't going our way I think the fans would have backed his ideas and admired him for having the (Manscaped?) balls to shake things up a bit.}
