With NL confirming a deal has been agreed with Southampton am really surprised forster is stalling.
There must be someone else sniffing around him.

Jungle john

1.) 06 Jul 2020 13:02:01
The talk was that he didn't want a loan with an option to buy he wanted the security of a permanent deal. If that's the case and we had a fee agreed for the end of the loan deal then surely we can just pay it now instead of next year.

2.) 06 Jul 2020 13:25:51
I think he was wanting a permanent deal and not a loan one. There’s talk of Crystal Palace making a £25 million bid for eduouard I don’t think he would go there. We need 2 goalkeepers a centre half and a right winger to challenge Forrest.

3.) 06 Jul 2020 13:56:58
Understandable on Forsters behalf. He has around £2M contract with Southampton over the next 2 years. I doubt the biggest hoops fan in the world would write off £60k per week to be part of 10 in a row.
My guess is he will want a significant amount of that paid off in order to move. If Southampton agreed the loan deal it shows he's not going to get a chance down there. I think this one could drag on for a while hopefully we don't let other targets slip through the net in the meantime.

4.) 06 Jul 2020 14:06:39
Understand it from Fraser's point of view with wanting a secure contract but honestly can't see a deal being completed unless celtic pay over the odds.
Apparently he's on 90k a week with Southampton and if he came to us on a permanent deal the most we would likely be able to offer at a push would be 45k a week.
Hopefully no one else comes in for him and we can get a deal done but with time going on I can't see us playing the waiting game.

5.) 06 Jul 2020 15:11:02
Forster has every right to look after himself. Not believing Celtic agreed terms with Southampton without asking Forster if he wanted to return. He's went back on his word, would forget about him and move on. No one is bigger than Celtic.

6.) 06 Jul 2020 21:30:51
You have no idea whether he gave his word on anything ninja.

7.) 07 Jul 2020 00:08:42
BT presenter Darrell Currie claims the Forster deal to Celtic is still ON. 🙏.

8.) 07 Jul 2020 02:58:53
The deal is very much on.



13 Aug 2019 09:51:28
Reports in Norway saying there is no interest at the moment from Celtic for meling.
I think it's more likely Taylor Celtic will go for. very highly rated knows the league so could go straight in to the starting 11.
It wouldn't be a bad move imo.

Jungle john

1.) 13 Aug 2019 10:42:54
I agree Jj
Because Taylor isn't a big name many fans are saying he's Tom Kite. He has been excellent for Killie and I think a move to a bigger club would bring him on leaps and bounds. He's young, he's a strong player and I have no doubt he'd love the move to Paradise. I asked the question before: would KT have been as good a player as he was if he had been playing for any other SPL side? HH.

2.) 13 Aug 2019 11:31:24
Wouldn't call Melling a big name bob.

3.) 13 Aug 2019 12:34:47
The Rosenberg manager is quoted saying he will leave and most if the written press have run this story. yoy never know they just might be right for once.

4.) 13 Aug 2019 12:37:46
Well lots of people are raving about him as the next Messiah. I've no doubt he's a good player, all I'm saying is people shouldn't write off Taylor because he's from the SPL. HH.

5.) 13 Aug 2019 13:33:54
Think a lot are raving about him because we've actually seen him and he stood out like a sore thumb.
He also has plenty experience of winning titles playing internationals and playing in Europe. He's 1st ready.
Taylor is definitely a good player as well with experience in Scotland but will he be good enough to walk straight in to our team?
I don't know. He could be a star or he could need a few years like Christie did.
But end if the day every signing a gamble.

6.) 13 Aug 2019 13:58:54
Totally agree Bob, we got Brown from the SPL and Griffith's HH.

7.) 13 Aug 2019 14:07:47
Not seen much if Taylor but size wise he looks quite small.

8.) 13 Aug 2019 14:09:12
We didn't get Griffiths from spl AGG.

9.) 13 Aug 2019 14:38:01
I would even go as far as to suggest getting Melling and Taylor which would allow boli to be moved further up the pitch.

10.) 13 Aug 2019 14:38:18
How good is Taylor, have to admit I haven’t seen much of him . When we have played Rosenborg meiling has looked their best player.

11.) 13 Aug 2019 15:44:17
I think Taylor is a very decent prospect indeed, not quite 1st team ready although you never know.

Melling is good enough to go straight into the team.

12.) 13 Aug 2019 15:56:24
My mistake Kev83, he was only on loan at Hibs.

13.) 13 Aug 2019 17:42:25
I've seen Meling a fair bit both in the Norwegian league and for the national side, he would be brilliant for us. He's not the biggest of lads though.
With Rosenborg still potentially able to qualify for CL themselves, I doubt them letting him go. they don't really have any good backups in their squad either, and haven't heard any rumours about them linked with any decent defenders.

14.) 13 Aug 2019 21:45:12
Melling stood out everytime we have played them.



12 Aug 2019 16:03:52
Norwegian tv saying we are interested in meling.

🙏 please be true! 🙏



2.) 12 Aug 2019 17:19:03
Would be a fantastic signing but can't see it happening
He is in the last year of his contract though.

3.) 12 Aug 2019 17:52:54
Would be delighted with beiling 😃.

4.) 12 Aug 2019 18:12:15
Yes please. Get it done!

5.) 12 Aug 2019 18:29:09
Would be a good signing and just what we need! That means I can’t see it happening 🤣.

6.) 12 Aug 2019 18:34:33
I really hope so.

7.) 12 Aug 2019 18:37:40
Didn’t Lennon go to Scandinavia on a spying mission about a month ago?

8.) 12 Aug 2019 19:14:36
Can’t remember much of him playing against us, and haven’t seen him play against any1 els, but I’ll go by rest of your comments at he is a really good player. What’s the story behind James Forrest and zenit? More false news I take it couldn’t see him wanting to leave anyway, was just reading about it earlier and see if use knew much about at?

9.) 12 Aug 2019 20:32:10
@irishboy I was over in Trondheim last season for Europa league game and hese a player who stood out to me.

10.) 12 Aug 2019 20:52:17
Irish did you not notice him when he scored within 15 minutes against us of the it's leg of the champions league qualifier kicking off?

11.) 12 Aug 2019 21:37:22
sorry mate I can hardly remember last night and wasn’t even drinking lol I have a short memory about some stuff at isn’t worth remembering. But I go on what some of use say on this and if he’s worth it then hopefully Celtic get the finger out for him, he does sound promising. Let’s hope so because Boli is not a lb, think he will be better lw if he gets the chance.



15 Jul 2019 17:58:04
Any ideas of the 2 players or positions NL is quoted as saying he wants in before the next round of qualifiers?

Jungle john

1.) 15 Jul 2019 18:48:37
I'd guess RB and a Midfielder.

Video recorder ha ha old school. Internet is a wonderful thing.



09 Jul 2019 21:16:27
Lennon saying he ain't even heard of Sergio Quintero. Looks like he will not be coming.

Jungle john

1.) 09 Jul 2019 21:21:49
Seen that hopefully Sawyers who we want.

2.) 09 Jul 2019 22:04:09
Would have been unusual that the two Ecuadorian players were inking the contract before a bids made. Could be they're using the club to get their name out there but who knows.

3.) 09 Jul 2019 22:25:47
Meanwhile, Lennon has revealed Sergio Quintero is NOT on Celtic's transfer radar.

The Ecuadorian midfielder insisted earlier on Tuesday he was in talks over a move to Parkhead but the Irishman has shot down those claims.

He said: "Never heard of him. That's names not cropped up at all, he's not popped up on the radar

So that's that then

Tbf would prefer this other Ecuadorian lad Clifterous (spelling) and Sawyers along with RB and CB pronto!

That leaves a month to get a young second choice RB and possibly a ST (considering we have 3 would take a season loan on a rated youngster)

That would be a cracking transfer window.

4.) 10 Jul 2019 01:28:01
Tompo88, it's nice to dream mate lol.

Would be amazing if all that came to fruition, but very unlikely I think.

5.) 10 Jul 2019 05:22:22
Clifterous? Sounds like the peak of a massive vagina!

6.) 10 Jul 2019 06:01:17
Aye i was going to say SOS-Bhoy, we'll do well to get Clifterous, my girl says I haven't found hers in 5 years.

7.) 10 Jul 2019 10:19:47
Hopefully not a case of the club signing a player without the managers approval.

8.) 10 Jul 2019 10:41:24
Clifterious 😂.

9.) 10 Jul 2019 12:39:14
Like they did with wanyama bigbubs?

10.) 10 Jul 2019 12:58:02
Wasn't Shved signed without Rodgers knowing who he was also?

11.) 10 Jul 2019 16:41:25
Slowly but surely that is what's going to end up happening. Once a dof in place they will be in charge of that kind of thing with the head coach getting a bit of input.

12.) 10 Jul 2019 18:21:33
I wouldn't be surprised if board have leaked a few red herrings to try catch leak.

13.) 10 Jul 2019 23:45:40
bravetart I'm sure Ed posted a few facts about the Shved deal which showed it was highly likely BR was telling porkies about not knowing of him.

14.) 10 Jul 2019 23:46:22
Yeah. Wanyama may have worked out however wouldn't fill me with confidence that the manager is being backed. Surely the manager should at least be aware of potential signings?

If we have learned anything from the last few derby's is we have been out played in midfield.
We have to stay in the game an go for it later.
We have to protect the back 4. And tbf rangers are a threat with the goals they are scoring.
Ajer jullian duffy Taylor

Brown McGregor

Jungle john

1.) 29 Dec 2020 19:49:21
There is one common denominator in the last few derbys when we have been outplayed in midfield.

2.) 29 Dec 2020 20:14:45
Totally agree Aindoh, the midfield is where we've lost the battle to them in recent games and as much as I hate to say it, Brown has been getting found out in games when teams move the ball quickly and then slows down our ability to get the forward quicker.
For me Frimpong is a liability against them as the space he leaves at the back by not tracking back will get exploited and anyone with time to run at Duffy or Julien i. e. Kent, usually results in a free kick/ goal or Pen.
If NL starts Brown and if he's fit, he will, I'd play 2 upfront but I really want Soro to start.

3.) 29 Dec 2020 20:15:13
Would be very harsh not to play Soro. Brown has been bang average this year although wouldn't suprise me if he did start.

4.) 29 Dec 2020 20:30:44
Love Broonie but Soro must start and two up front is essential for 3 points. NL needs to assume we’ll lose 3 and will need to score 4.

5.) 29 Dec 2020 22:08:58
Is there anyone here that actually thinks or wants brown to start on Saturday?
I can’t see lennon not playing him though although if we play well tomorrow we shouldn’t be changing the team.

6.) 29 Dec 2020 22:50:51
Most common denominator about us being totally pumped on the last 3 games against Sevco and that is Lennon MR I haven't a clue how to set up against them or change things if it goes pear shaped.

7.) 29 Dec 2020 23:21:35
I can see Celtic winning against Dundee Utd with a good performance tomorrow.
Lenny will play Soro at the top of the diamond in midfield with Griff and Eddy up front.
I can’t see him changing it for Saturday because he would be setting himself up for criticism if we fail to win.
This new setup and new personnel is our last chance saloon to save our season.
Lenny needs to stick with it because it seems to be working.
There’s no excuses for Saturday because it’s a decent surface and there’s no home fans.
We need to go there and be positive and play our recent formation.
I’m looking forward to both games and I think they’re coming at the right time.

8.) 30 Dec 2020 03:03:41
Wouldn't have Duffy anywhere near that game. He's a carthorse and would be targeted at pace by Kent. Gives away far too many daft fouls in dangerous areas too and their biggest attribute is a good delivery, atm we struggle to defend set pieces. Ajer at RB is a no for me too as is Brown starting over Soro. I'd stick with the 4-3-1-2 and play the players that have performed lately. I'd probably rather Moi started over Christie in behind the strikers as well. Laxalt over Taylor, Tavernier would have a field day over Taylor if he started.

Frimpong Ajer Jullien Laxalt
Turnbull McGregor
Griff Eddy.

06 Dec 2020 19:16:49
Who do see giving rangers a bloody nose?
Who do you see celtic giving a bloody nose?
Not only do we need an upturn in form but they need a massive down turn.
At this moment both are looking unlikely.
I think we can all see that time for change and the possible kick back that can give was weeks ago.
Every passing game is only denting our confidence and boosting theres.
But while its still possible let's not just give up. let's not go out without a fight.
That would be the biggest crime of them all .

Jungle john

1.) 06 Dec 2020 20:36:22
Absolutely JJ. It's far from over. They won't win every game but the main thing is we get a new manager in and start stringing wins together. Has to be now though. We can't afford any more slip ups.

2.) 06 Dec 2020 22:51:04
We now need to win the games up until Sevconian game as well as a win at Ibrox too. League isn't over but the alarming form makes it hard to see us clawing this back under the current management. Need to try keep within touching distance as the Christmas/ Jan period could be where it's lost if we surrender more points. Hopefully their squad will be stretched with the fixture pile up. A close race going into the split will make those fixtures high pressure for them.



30 Nov 2020 20:52:39
Not even the Ateam could get the board out of the situation they are in if NL stays and we drop more points.
Its a complete mess.
Half a team of loans and players wanting away and the others so far off form no games is a cert.
Gross mismanagement of the highest order.
DD has to reshape the organisation into a modern day highly efficient football club.
Unpopular it might be but if 10iar is lost to get it then so be it.
Not just a new manager is needed. but a new coaching team and recruitment team also.
Along with a new ceo.
The time for change is here and now.
Drop anymore points under NL and last nights protest will be the tip of the iceberg.

Jungle john



29 Nov 2020 20:56:39
Does anyone agree that maybe the man the club want just might not want to come at this time.
Clark has the euros and his previous statement ect.
Howe would want coaching time and a pre season under his belt.
Would WGS want to take it and work with his son.
MON how after publicly defend NL then step in his shoes.
Its a strange situation to be in. but timing could be what might hold things up.

Jungle john

1.) 29 Nov 2020 21:36:41
Nobody will want to come and work under lawell, why wasnt lennon allowed to bring in his own coaches, ie mjallby, parker, thomson, instead being lumped with big kennedy. The point is no one will want to come in after seeing the scenes outside of celtic park tonight, that just fuels the media to write more bad stuff about celtic.

2.) 29 Nov 2020 23:48:29
100% what manager would look at that tonight and want the job?



29 Nov 2020 19:22:19
Yes NL has to go, but can anyone make a case for us salvaging this league position.
Please ed make a case because I am toiling to make one.

Jungle john

{Ed007's Note - The league position isn't that bad, fans need to stop spending so much time concentrating on what TRIFK are doing.}

1.) 29 Nov 2020 20:10:09
If we can get someone in too steady the ship eds right the league position isn't too bad. If we win the 2 games in hand it's only 5 points. But the longer we wait to make changes the worse it will get. We will not win it with lennon in charge. The players have massively down tooled for him and clearly will not play for him. I've defended him, but its undefendable now. It's time for Lennon to go before it is too late. But I fear because of the violence outside celtic park the board may be stubborn and not want to give in to those wee neds.

{Ed007's Note - Lennon could sort it out, Milan on Thursday is a dead duck (but I'm already dreading the live chat 😥) so get a team on the park that have the guts for it, if Turnbull iand LG are available then he plays, get the likes of Welsh, Luca Connell, Henderson etc etc on the park and tell them they're playing for a starting slot against St. Johnstone, tell them to show some grit, determination and fight and force Lennon to make BIG decisions - the old pals act isn't working and I don't mean that against the likes of Brown, I mean that Lennon still hasn't been able to stop wanting to be one of the Bhoys and be their boss. I used to party like an animal and go to games and marches with guys I worked with but they knew come Monday morning if I was fit enough to turn up I was their boss and they had to respect that.
If Lawwell and DD are backing Lennon then it's time he called their bluff and said that he's only going to pick players that want to play for him and f**k the wasters transfer fees and egos.
I'd bet Timalloy's last pound there would be a change of attitude from the prima donna's over the next week or so.}

2.) 29 Nov 2020 20:23:18
Agree with Ed, league position is ok. We need to win games in hand though. actually been fortunate that a lot of these defeats have been in Europe and todays LC game.

After offering NL job in the shower, has anyone else heard that PL is on a flight to Italy. apparently Paulo DiCanio has just run a bath:)

3.) 29 Nov 2020 20:25:34
If Lennon stays I don't see us winning the league.

If we get a tactically astute manager in who the players respect and play for I think we will win the league.

Its all rosey across the city just now but let's see how they handle the pressure come February onwards. We have players who have been there and done it. For whatever reason they are not doing it for Lennon.

Flex our muscle to get the right manager and still got another transfer window I am not that worried about the league position as it stands. My view on this may change depending on who takes over from Lennon.

4.) 29 Nov 2020 20:38:16
Paulo Di Canio in the bath 😂.

5.) 29 Nov 2020 20:49:32
The season is far from over but only if something is done very soon in my opinion.
There seems to be a complacency from the boardroom down to the playing staff for a while now and the lack of fans inside the ground only seems to add to it.
After every disastrous result fans are looking for the club to do something to show that they are dealing with the situation but nothing seems to happen. Every game we play at the moment seems worse than the previous one. A week ago it seemed a bad result at Hibs, on Thursday we were worse against Prague, and now we are losing at home to Ross County.
I'm not saying we have a divine right to win any of these games but we do have a right to expect a level of performance from the players which has been missing for most of this season.
A lot of fans have paid out hard earned money to buy season tickets when it's likely most of them won't get to a game this season. In return for this gift it's surely not too much to ask that everyone at the club does their utmost to repay them.

6.) 29 Nov 2020 23:35:14
Can't afford any slip ups up until the game with them need max points otherwise NL has to go. He should be punted already. If we manage that and a win against them then it's looking like the league is back on. They have tough Jan fixtures and we will have our games in hand done by then. They're only cruising because they have such a healthy gap with our prosponed games the minute we catch back up their arses will go.

Mjs development will be hindered if we are relying on him as a number 1 pick due to our terrible recruitment policy.
He should be brought in and taken out as required or even a possible loan.
To be fair to him he has come up with important goals this season but he still needs managed properly.

These are our banter years rolled up and squeezed into a few months.
I fear this story is going to grow arms and legs. allready we have public health scientists saying there must be more people to have been in contact with the player who in turn would need to self isolate.
The really is turning out to be the season from hell.
The sooner its over the better.

Sometimes you need to take a step back and have a look around to actually see what's going on.
The only thing I can see is rangers stretching there lead. its done. we have blown it from top to bottom.
There is absolutely no evidence to suggest anything different.
The only good thing is the monkey is of our back and as a club we can now start the process of moving forward. Ofcourse I would have loved 10iar but its the milestone that's been holding us back.
Out of Europe before a ball is kicked most years but fed the 10iar line and that keeps us happen.
Well that's gone. so let's all move on and look forward to better times.

What has really impacted is the last 2 transfer windows. A complete disaster. Not one player has made an impact. that is where we have fallen down.
No point in naming them all. its everyone of them. even if 4 players out of at least the last 8 had shown up, then we wouldn't be in the mess we are currently in.

Hindsight is a wonderful thing.
If we would have signed those 3 players in the summertime there would have been an out cry.
Rightly or wrongly the club would have been accused of penny pinching.
Looking at there scotland performances however they would have done us a turn.
