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.

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!

Would be a good signing and just what we need! That means I can’t see it happening 🤣.

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?

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

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?



28 Jun 2019 06:55:38
Please tell me the sun in Austria is getting to Lennon. confirming an interest in paddy McNair.
Are we being serious?

Jungle john

1.) 28 Jun 2019 08:47:59
Dear god I hope not! Never mind the fact he’s one of the tribute acts disciples, he’s absolutely rank rotten to go with it! Talk of a 5 million pound bid! I wouldn’t pay 10 Bob for that diddy! He’s been dross wherever he’s been! Get a right back in, never mind this clown!

Have we came out the window stronger?

Jungle john

1.) 31 Jan 2020 20:44:22

2.) 31 Jan 2020 20:53:34
The window ain't done yet.

3.) 31 Jan 2020 21:06:53
I think we have.

Klimala gives us more options than Morgan did up top. Griffiths looked good the other night linking up with Edouard. If we stick with 2 up front the other 3 must see it as fair game as to who plays with Edouard. I always think competition for places pushes players on to the next level.

Soro will be good cover in the midfield area. Never seen him play but seems athletic and good on the ball turning out from the back.

It would have been ideal to have another centre back in to have 4 natural centre halves challenging for 2 or 3 spaces at the back. Hopefully Elhamed can gain fitness and finish the season strong. He looked very good in every game he played.

4.) 31 Jan 2020 21:13:25
No because we have only 2 fit centre backs and have only signed 2 inexperienced 21 year olds who are probably not ready to step into the team yet, if Jullien or Ajer pick up an injury we could be in trouble .

5.) 31 Jan 2020 21:32:39
Drewzbhoy definitely right 2 fit CBs is not good enough the 3-5-2 which has been good for us recently we can’t play cause Jozo no fit enough all the time I was expecting at least CB in but am not the manager Lennon and board must think that’s alright so we have to go with that. Thanks babe nd positive is I think the new Bhoys going to do good job Soro looks a character and the new number 11 looks is a f he means business.



31 Jan 2020 14:53:59
If we play 3 at the back or 4,we definitely need another CB.
Scrambling about at the last minute. shambles.

{Ed007's Note - Fingers crossed 🤞



30 Jan 2020 15:35:32
Anyone who takes any notice of my posts, they will know 99% of the time I back NL in most counts.
But his reaction to MJ limping off the park with minutes to go with the game won was imo was out of order.
Yes maybe MJ could have came off earlier but in any place of work to be spoken to in that manner by the boss lacks a touch of class.

Jungle john

1.) 30 Jan 2020 15:43:09
Not for me. He was quite rightly raging because johnstone put himself before the team.

2.) 30 Jan 2020 15:54:46
It could have been described as out of order if he stood and shouted at MJ in front of an audience but he didn’t. Lennon was specifically asking MJ about his injury and Johnstone blatantly turned his back on his manager. With his team winning comfortably MJ decided to play on and now he will be out injured long term. Silly boy. I was raging with MJ and I was only watching on the tele.

3.) 30 Jan 2020 15:58:56
He looked like a wee scruffy bully JJ. His demeanor is lazy and disinterested with random outbursts.

4.) 30 Jan 2020 15:59:10
I totally agree JJ, we have heard various rumours/ stories of the way he has treated some of the young boys and for me his reaction tells me that he has not changed one bit.
He Was well out of order, the game was over and there was only about 2 mins to go.

5.) 30 Jan 2020 16:19:06
Definitely Kev. Lennon isn't everyone's cup of tea but I completely understand why he was p***ed off.

6.) 30 Jan 2020 16:21:27
Disagree here tbh. MJ let them team down by saying he was fit to continue when he clearly wasn't. He should have thought of the team rather than himself and went off when Lennon asked if he was fit to continue.

Would people still think it was out of order if it was 0-0 and he goes down as the opposition break and score a goal?

7.) 30 Jan 2020 16:22:10
The Physio and medical team should have had him off the park.

8.) 30 Jan 2020 16:31:49
Who hasn't tried to run something off that's severe? dislocated? pop it in. Falling off? tape it on. That's where Lennon/ the physio should take ownership and make the call.

9.) 30 Jan 2020 16:31:54
Eff me this site moans about panty wetting. industrial language in the work place so what get a life.

10.) 30 Jan 2020 16:33:43
Gd opinions troops. I own a small business. I would never speak to any of my employees like that.
To say MJ let the team down with a few minutes to go doesn't wash with me.
The boy wanted to play on. could have and probably did make it worse.
Maybe the physio and manager should have made the decision for him.

11.) 30 Jan 2020 16:37:14
My only gripe would be that we have just signed Klimala to play up front and in last 2 games he has picked MJ ahead of him which I don't really get as he isn't a striker, I like NL but some of his decisions at times baffle me really. His comments regarding transfers for instance are all over the place, I mean is he trying to fool the support that he is in charge there.

12.) 30 Jan 2020 16:41:41
Both were in the wrong; NL for how he reacted this is no longer acceptable behaviour in the workplace and MJ for staying on when he was injured.
With MJ he is young and may learn from his mistakes and if he is out for some time he may not get back into the tean this season. He must use this time to build up his strength and work on his character becoming more humble and less selfish.
NL on the other hand should look deeply into the mirror today and decide how he intends to manage.

13.) 30 Jan 2020 17:07:58
Mally, that wasn't industrial language. That was the Celtic manager telling a young injured player where to go.
As I said I back NL more than most on here. but for me that's not the way I want a Celtic manager reacting to an academy player who now has a long term injury.

14.) 30 Jan 2020 17:55:29
I would be more concerned if NL wasn't anhry! By the look on his face MJ knew straight away it was a bad one. he should've came clean to avoid any further damage. Imagine the reaction if we were drawing or getting beat, MJ was just being selfish.

15.) 30 Jan 2020 18:06:57
C'mon al bet you mj uses worse language it's a tough sport anybody who's played at any level will tell you that's what goes on.

16.) 30 Jan 2020 19:48:50
Mally it's not the swearing that's the issue. He crossed the line with a young boy.
Do you think he would have told a senior player to do one.
I think not.

17.) 30 Jan 2020 19:51:44
some missing the point its not only last few minutes of last nights game he missed the boys now out for what looks like long term and done more damage to his knee while trying to play through, he was asked countless times if he was ok to continue.

18.) 30 Jan 2020 19:52:31
jungle john you could argue that an employee wouldn't turn your back on there boss present you didn't hear him for almost a minute then turn and tell a lie.

19.) 31 Jan 2020 08:56:30
Imagine Stein or TB behaving like that. Not the way a Celtic manager should conduct himself. Embarrassing.



25 Jan 2020 17:37:16
Hayes will get pelters for today's performance but can someone explain to me what ntcham brings to the party.
Very over rated in my opinion.
If we play with 2 wingers we have to feed them the ball and then they have to create.
Unfortunately they aren't doing enough.
We need to sign players that walk into the team. something must change.

Jungle john

1.) 25 Jan 2020 17:57:54
Hayes gave ball away cheaply several times, Ntcham was disappointing as was Brown and McGregor was frustrating. Star of show for me was Bauer apart from Eddy when he came on.

2.) 25 Jan 2020 18:39:58
Hayes and Simunovic were really poor. Ntcham had a great game against Kilmarnock but poor today. Inconsistency has always been his issue. Agree Bauer played well. Probably our strongest position when all fit.

3.) 25 Jan 2020 18:55:02
I thought Bauer was very tidy again today and think he’s been solid every tine I’ve seen him. He always gives 100% and you can ask no more than that. I thought particularly in the first half we made it hard work for ourselves. Pedestrian and no change of pace in the last third. Just my thoughts and would be good to hear yours but just in from the game frozen and after a few Guinness. jfp.

4.) 25 Jan 2020 19:04:46
It was a very average performance from half the team and if Ross County had taken their chances we could have went in behind at HT?
I appreciate the games are coming thick and fast and not every player can be on top form every time, but Hayes rarely reaches pass-marks.
Fortunately we still have enough match winners to see it through.

5.) 25 Jan 2020 19:22:00
Hayes shouldn't be anywhere near our squad. Don't care if he gives his all. he's somply not good enough. Simunovic has had enough time at the club now and he's always shakey at best or always injured. Central midfield needs upgrading, hopefully this new lad can play a part. Centre half and a winger should be brought in.

6.) 25 Jan 2020 19:37:17
We all see this game so different at times I thought the whole team was stinking today no pass mark's for anyone but eddy when he came on why we have played with 2 up top in last away games then revert back to one is baffling to me when we played well in the last 2 games needs to improve or we are in trouble and surely polish paddy deserved a parkhead debut time to to step up bhoys Celtic shirts don't shrink to fit inferior players.

7.) 25 Jan 2020 20:16:14
I think Ntcham is better in CDM driving us up the pitch than he is at 10. He takes too long on the ball to be influential in CAM. Hayes isn't a defender. He might have the engine to bomb up amd down the flank all game but defensively he's clumsy in the tackle and gets caught in possession too much in the wrong areas.

8.) 25 Jan 2020 20:17:53
Ross County missed 2 sitters and our defence was woeful at times. We spent over 5 million on 2 left backs and it's still a problem area. Hayes will give it his best and is an honest professional but still looks like an Aberdeen player in a Celtic Jersey.3 points collected is the main thing. Fans need to realise we won't win every game in style. At times we will grind out results and no doubt drop points along the way but so will the rest. Job done. Keep the Faith🍀.

9.) 25 Jan 2020 21:04:45
I think we should've spent the money on melling and used hayes, bauer as back up. Taylor might end up good but I've not been very impressed with him or bolingoli so far.

10.) 25 Jan 2020 21:12:51
It doesn't matter how well the team plays or how badly the team plays there is one outfield player who is quarenteed to start if fit, I think that is the biggest problem the team has.

{Ed007's Note - Forster? 😉

11.) 25 Jan 2020 21:32:08
Halfway home and more than half cut so probably wrong time to post but read one above that hits the nail on the head I have no issues wi Johnny Hayes he’s loving the dream does his best but fact is 2 left backs bought yet he’ plays Ian’s we’re going for 10 is this Celtic or Lennon I don’t know but it’s not right.

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.

Boli didn't meet or even speak with lennon until after he was paraded in a Celtic top.

Having missed so much of the season, you could argue that a fit elhamd and moi are like 2 new signings.
Yes agreed a CB is required along with a sprinkle of magic in the forward area and more importantly everyone staying fit and I think we are looking really strong.

Surely any half decent striker, that's fully fit will contribute more that bayo or griff, because tbh they have been terrible.
It's the "10 iar" game we are playing. Some fans are panicking and think household names are the answer.
Maybe just a young guy coming in, with no fear, just like frimpong could be a shot in the arm we need.
Time will tell but give the guy a chance.
Every signing is a gamble.
