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.

Reverse Cowgirl and wheelbarrow.

LMAO kwaj or you could go for "setting the video recorder" lol.

5.) 15 Jul 2019 23:10:36
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?



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!

2.) 28 Jun 2019 10:14:58
Totally agree, let's spend the money where it is needed.



23 Jun 2019 10:49:00
Looks like we are going to miss out on rekeem Harper. That's liverpool and Juventus talking to him.
Hopefully we can still pull it out the bag.

Jungle john

1.) 23 Jun 2019 11:32:24
If they are it’s a dead duck. Plucked marinated and cooked. Feck, Bansley can pay more than us. :)

2.) 23 Jun 2019 11:39:33
Missed the bus again, he was at Celtic Park weeks ago, why do we always faff about when we have the initiative, if reports of big money offers for KT and Calmac are true and Lawwell is even considering selling them given the underwhelming transfer targets we are getting bandied about then surely Harper would been approached by now,
I think this could be a deadline day scramble fest yet again and we could pay the price for it .

3.) 23 Jun 2019 12:16:49
Thought we'd dropped our interest?



16 Jun 2019 11:37:32
Please tell me we ain't in for Adam Matthews or Gary hooper or giving lustig another 2 years.
We wouldn't just be standing still with these signings but taking a massive backward step.
I know the window has just opened but why we are starting pre season without a new signing is criminal.
Players could and should have been lined up.
Someone has to be signed this week and give the place a lift.

Jungle john

1.) 16 Jun 2019 14:21:51
Yes give the place a lift, would make a nice change from lifting trophies.

2.) 16 Jun 2019 16:56:43
Id give lustig another 2 years as the number 2 RB.

3.) 16 Jun 2019 17:25:35
On his current salary Kev83 as that's apparently the reason he's leaving?
Father times definetly caught up with him and I think Celtic are correct in reducing his salary in the offer to extend his contract.

4.) 16 Jun 2019 18:10:01
Would definitely keep lustig as a back up RB which would mean reduced salary. Definitely need a new RB with experience and definitely not Adam Mathews.

5.) 16 Jun 2019 18:12:33
I'd back board with that one tae pod.
If he's playing a reduced role then reduced wage but if he can get more else where then good luck to him.
I do think he played very well after Lennon arrived and he didn't need to bomb forward as much.

6.) 16 Jun 2019 18:48:06
Carl jenkinson is also been linked what's yer take on him guys.

7.) 17 Jun 2019 12:39:24
Lustig has been a great servant of Club but in my opinion his time is over. I don’t see point in keeping him as a number 2 RB as he’d be rusty coming in at his age and stage of his career. We’re 2 away from 10IAR and we can’t afford to be sentimental when it comes to players etc. I have a few mates on the Dark Side and they say same about their attempt at 10. They were too loyal to players who were passed their best.

13 Jul 2019 16:56:43
Seriously. we need a few players in asap.

Jungle john

1.) 13 Jul 2019 18:26:49
Can't really draw any real conclusions from a kick-about like that with an almost constant turnover of players, but there were a few good points that came out of it:-
Cal-Mac is more than capable of taking over from Broony and his vision, passing and energy is evident in all our good play.
Ajer has made the transition from midfield becoming a sublime centre-back with presence/ poise and perfect timing - A REAL asset.
Young Henderson will keep the likes of Ryan Christie on his toes as he looks like a real star in the making.
Morgan is trying hard to impress, but has a lot of competition; but may yet salvage his Hoops career?
The new arrivals had a relatively decent first game - early days.
However, there was a few things that could have been better:-
Ralston is not the answer to the RB problem (no surprise there) .
Creating chances from dead-ball situations is still very poor.
Goal scoring (like the run-in last season) was again a problem and that was our second 0-0 in pre-season.
I know we scored three when it mattered, but I still think we need another striker in the door as we need fresh options and I'm sorry unfortunately, I doubt LG will ever get back to his best?
(hope he proves me wrong) .
Nevertheless, a friendly, a huge turnover of players gaining experience and fitness and a reminder of what work remains?

2.) 13 Jul 2019 18:32:20
One thing is sbuntantky clear. Our younger players aren’t good enough, apart from Henderson and Johnston. That was a chance to give Kenny something to think about. The only thing I would be thinking is, we need to buy.

Awful game. Passing really poor. Created almost nothing after a bright start. The young players were getting praise on the tour, but they were playing pub teams. Rennes are a decent side and no one stepped up enough to make us think, they could do a job.

2 RB’s and at least five players who can step up and step in. Luca needs time, Ralston needs loaned out, only Morgan and Henderson showed anything and even that was in fits and starts.

Sometimes it’s good to see the lack of class as well as who can cut it. Let’s hope we sign a few players really soon.

3.) 13 Jul 2019 19:23:18
OaB I actually thought Griff was excellent today, personally.

Really positive about him this coming season.

4.) 13 Jul 2019 20:37:15
OAB that was a good post! I still think it’s too early to know what LG we are going to get. If he can keep his head down he can be a real player for us. I think Henderson is going to be a special player. I think he should be our Ntcham replacement. Spend the money on a quality right back. Ralston needs a year loan in the SPL so we can see if he will improve enough to be in our squad. Would be great to have 4 good CF’s in the squad. I’d be content with 2 RB’s and a CB but can't see us getting 2 RB’s. Having 4 good strikers would be a statement.



11 Jul 2019 16:14:50
I have to say that so far another underwhelming window.
We have had plenty of time to recruit players so I don't buy into "theres plenty of time to go" argument.
We are going into CL qualifiers without a recognised RB. how can that happen at a club like ours.
We are going into these games with the same squad. how many times can we keep asking these players to keep up the standards we look for without giving them help.
There are areas that need addressed all over the park.
Hopefully there will be signings to come sooner rather than later.

Jungle john

1.) 11 Jul 2019 16:35:46
A RB will come in hopefully asap and thrifty Lawell will be looking for another RB that can play CH too.

2.) 11 Jul 2019 18:07:08
With you Jim. A centre back was the absolute minimum needed, along with the elusive right back. But we've been piling up bills for several windows and a marquee signing or the equivalent across two positions is sorely wanted.

I guess there's no point in having the spending power unless we have the manager and medium-term strategy in place to utilise it. A quality CAM would be my preference but I fancy Christie to have a belting season.

3.) 11 Jul 2019 18:17:01
Ffs lenny has openly said he wants a rb and a cb and a midfielder over to u pedro.

4.) 11 Jul 2019 19:02:49
Some people are never happy. The board are actively trying to get players in, we have signed a decent CB, signed a player that can operate anywhere on left side, were unfortunate not to sign Turnbull and finally got compper off wage bill!

We knew we needed an overhaul and are not just panic buying. Board have done well so far and more players will come.

5.) 11 Jul 2019 20:35:54
I am disappointed we released Lustig without having a quality replacement as this is a key area, overdue for resolving.
However, we have been pretty proactive since the window opened, with the early Turnbull attempt unfortunately ended and the signing of Jullien, Bolingoli and Connell, while we have been busy on the reverse side by released several surplus players - freeing up cash.
There is still time to bring in the players we need, but they need to fit the profile, the budget and the class required and we may have considerable additional funds to do this if we sell?

6.) 11 Jul 2019 21:49:31
Lads the recruitment team are working hard there’s a lot going in behind the scenes keep the faith.

7.) 11 Jul 2019 22:12:51
We have a signed a solid centre half and a very good left sided player. As one of the guys said u lucky with Turnbull I think it’s a bit early to be Criticising the board. Young Luca has also been added.

Lenny knows what he wants and I have the faith in the club to make the right moves.

If the amount of signings that the sevies have made are causing people to attack the board on here they should take some chill pills. The players Celtic have added are far superior and I believe more will join them.

2 rb’s and a striker and I think we are sets anything else will be a bonus.

8.) 12 Jul 2019 02:20:21
Once a Bhoy
I totally agree with you, I personally think we should have kept Lustig until we had back up, I thought our fans and our club were harsh on Lustig as he never complained and he always tried his heart out, he never ever got the credit he deserves the man loved the club and deserved another contract he even said himself he wanted to stay but they had no plans for him, does anyone else agree.

9.) 12 Jul 2019 07:19:33
We tried to keep lustig but he want 3 years and we where only prepared to offer 1 year. can't blame board for that.

10.) 12 Jul 2019 10:16:32
The fact we let Lustig go makes it more of a cert we will sign a RB. The big man just couldn’t cut it pace wise anymore. We need better and we need it asap.



08 Jul 2019 19:36:13
Is next week home tie free on the season ticket?

Jungle john

1.) 08 Jul 2019 20:02:49
2 games free euro next week and friendly against Rennes on Saturday.



02 Jul 2019 20:48:37
Although just a friendly it shows why we are crying out for 2 full backs. So essential in the modern game and we must get both positions filled asap.
Also we need a box to box midfielder.
I know there is plenty of time in the window but we must know who we want and who is willing to come.

Jungle john

1.) 02 Jul 2019 21:04:27
Hayes is gash! And Ralston's level is probably a st. mirren or livi. Both not good enough for Celtic.

2.) 02 Jul 2019 22:58:16
Ralston wasn't good enough for Dundee United in the championship, that says it all really.



02 Jul 2019 17:40:21
Is bayo injured again. don't think he is even on the bench tonight.

Jungle john

1.) 02 Jul 2019 19:27:03
I was wondering why he isn't starting too mate.

Tbh and it's only my opinion but I feel we need a Harper type before a Turnbull type player.
But I would be happy to get both.

Yes kev but a younger back up is going to naturally give you more energy.
All that is happened to lustig is that father time has caught up with him.
He ain't got the legs and he will only get slower with a lack of game time.
It's only my opinion but RB is a priority position that needs addressed.

A lustig not playing every week doesn't work. his fitness when called upon wouldn't be up to it.
We have to get a new RB. and possibly Ralston as back up.

Let's see what the spend is at the end of the window and am pretty confident that Celtic will be in profit.
Am not saying that's wrong. that's gd business. But there has to be a reason it's all gone quite.
Are telling me celtic will spend the guts of 20million, might not make CL again and not sell Kt.
Pl will push the button when he knows bases are covered.

There is no way PL is going to spend anymore without the knowledge that KT is a done deal.
That's when you will see other coming in.
It's just not Celtic's policy to spend money without the possibility of even more coming in.

I believe we ain't got a new rb because of the Tierney to arsenal situation. Could they know that jenkinson will be part of the deal.
We have had plenty of time to get a new one in.
Only a thought.

Looks like bit kev but for me especially against sevco we were to passive with no aggression in the middle of the park. i think he could replace kouassi. I think Turnbull will add more goals and compete with RC and TR for the advanced position but RK would have given us the strength and ability to break play up given time.
Kouassi just doesn't cut it for me and it would be a step up in my opinion.
