I have heard that, Edouard and his agent are looking to deal with Celtic again. If they adhere to his wage demands and also inserting a release clause in his contract I would assume £30m.


1.) 04 Sep 2020 15:28:03
Seen the same but I got told it was 40-45 million.

2.) 04 Sep 2020 15:50:22
Where is this coming from? I have looked and there are no quotes or statements from either his agent or Eddy. I have noticed a mother of people saying this, quitingvan ikn source etc. I may have missed it, but it seems that most declarations of intent from eddy and his agent don't come from either. Can you stick up a link to this? I hope it's true but until he sats it, its somebody else who as far as I am aware knows nothing about it. And if they do, let us all see the evidence.

3.) 04 Sep 2020 15:58:11
Posted a week ago . and what was said then applies now. Celtic will concede a little . eddy holds the cards but he wants to achieve the 10 . the issue was around timings

Eddy wanted a 6 month 1 way trigger depending on ream and league. Celtic want 12 months.

The compromise is to do with the 6 month trigger and the teams and leagues and value that will trigger an eddy only exit option.

4.) 04 Sep 2020 16:22:46
I get what you are saying, but who originally saud it. Was it Eddy?

5.) 04 Sep 2020 17:44:22
It makes sense for all parties to extend his contract.
Eddy will get his wish to stay for the 10,
And Celtic will get his true valuation when he is eventually sold.
But the clause in his contract shouldn’t be released until the end of this season because it would stop any unrest in the January transfer window and the possibility he could leave half way through this season.

6.) 04 Sep 2020 17:52:11
if he wants to stay for 10 then why is he wanting the 6 month thing that he could leave before season is finished.

7.) 04 Sep 2020 18:49:35
UI maybe in case we are trailing in the league?

8.) 04 Sep 2020 19:35:42
United Ireland it is to do with the WHO .

If certain teams in certain leagues wants him and to pay the trigger amount, he wants to make the decision . The value will be higher at month 6

In month 12, he can go anywhere for a slightly lesser value

He wants the 10
But he also wants flexibility

Celtic want top dollar but he doesn't want celtic pricing him out of a lucrative career changing move

He loves us
We love him
He respects us and we respect him

These new contracts to protect asset value are tough to negotiate.

9.) 04 Sep 2020 20:34:03
i think he knows we want around 35 to 40 mill for him and its not priceing him out of a move its makeing sure we do not get short changed for our top talent anymore surely he must understand that we value him very highley and that's why we want top dollar.

10.) 07 Sep 2020 23:00:48
He was apparently close to joining Monaco 18/ 19 season but they pulled plug on deal. They then had a change of heart and he told them where to go.

Defo think this is his last season with us, but as long as he is here to help us get the 10 is all that matters.



28 Jun 2020 19:45:28
Does anyone know if the interest in Jordon Ibe is genuine?

Could be worth a punt if wages aren't an issue. Big prospect and think a move to a club like ours might give him that push.


1.) 28 Jun 2020 19:58:43
He would likely want big wages and he'll only be back up to Forrest who is a better player imo.

2.) 28 Jun 2020 20:19:55
The only ones who'll know are the Celtic management.

3.) 29 Jun 2020 14:11:04
He was a big prospect about 6 years ago and just hasn't kicked on IMO. Over hyped and compared to Sterling but hasn't done anything to justify that comparison.

Not for me.



23 Jun 2020 12:54:44
Aliou Traore, Manchester United Prem 2 player. 19 years old; french, CM.

Could he be Ntchams replacement? If he still wants to leave?


1.) 23 Jun 2020 15:17:09
Looks like a raw talent and could be a cracking signing, big and solid and would undoubtedly complement mcgregor and christie in the middle of the park, exactly the type of player we should be going for considering brown is getting on a bit now and we should be looking long term.
Could potentially be another future asset and playing in the under teams shouldn't be an issue, frimpong is clear evidence of that.

2.) 23 Jun 2020 16:11:10
What happens with soro then?

3.) 23 Jun 2020 16:14:01
Is Soro not Brown's replacement?

4.) 23 Jun 2020 16:46:40
Has anybody seen Soro kick a ball or heard he can lol.

5.) 23 Jun 2020 17:27:22
Just saw footage on YouTube duff and Phelps. Looks a solid ball winning midfielder.

6.) 24 Jun 2020 00:03:53
Kouassi was supposed to be browns long term replacement when he signed and look how that turned out, soro looks a decent player from what I've seen but I still think we need a powerhouse type defensive mid in there who is hard to break down.



15 Jun 2020 18:31:23
Jorge Benguche - Plays for Olimpia in the Honduran A division.

This name has popped up, looks like a decent player. Shows up a lot and scores goals from the videos/ stats I've looked at so far. Big strong and fast. Decent finisher as-well, very much a Dembele style player. Not sure how good the Honduran league is but I know that CD Olimpia are holding there own in the CONCACAF quarter finals. Beating Seattle Sounders 4-2 on aggregate. Seattle were second in the MLS Western Conference 18/ 19.

I reckon since Emilio was Honduran they'll just be using Celtic as a stepping stone to stir up interest. But I think he would be a signing that is worth taking a chance on, Bayo seems like he needs a loan/ permanent move. Not sure how Klimala will fit in but I don't see him making much progress? Maybe a pre season will do them good.

We need a replacement for Eddy eventually. Will it be Big Benguche?


1.) 15 Jun 2020 18:51:22
Looks like a proper number 9 decent in the air and as you say strong and quick. Possible Bayo replacement and not Edouards. Read someone comparing his style to Benzema lol.

2.) 15 Jun 2020 19:34:36
I seen that too when I was trying to pull some information in for him. Maybe Bayo will end up at Galatasary with Drogba?

3.) 16 Jun 2020 16:31:36
Two names I'd like to see mentioned with us, cyle larin and landry dimata.

Both strong and powerful, especially larin, signed for besiktas from orlando 2 years ago and struggled for form, currently on loan in Belgium but reportedly available for 3m, could be a cracking buy and I reckon lenny could get the best out of him.

With bayo and klimala here aswell though I doubt we'll make a signing unless edouard is sold.

4.) 16 Jun 2020 19:48:33
we were linked with larin a few times mark when he was at orlando he's a good player i went to an orlando game a few years ago and he was bullying the centre halfs good left foot if i remember right, read an article not sure where think lennon is expecting big things from klimala this season maybe he was starting to show good things in training before season got cut short.

5.) 17 Jun 2020 00:25:17
Yeah I remember us being mentioned with him at the time Liam, just think he could possibly be that powerful target man we've been looking for.
Think klimala will come into a game next season I really do, the boy looks sharp and now that he's bedded in hopefully he'll start the new season in the managers plans and keep griff on his toes.

6.) 20 Jun 2020 20:36:27
We've been doing not to bad without a target man up till now . why the need.



09 Jun 2020 08:28:55
Shon Weissman a players name that has been mentioned repeatedly online. Allegedly we are preparing a 5m bid for the player. I assume Wolfsberger his parent club are hedging there bets on a large sum in relation to Manuss Dabburs move to Sevilla/ Hoffenheim however you want to see it, from Salzburg. We know all about him - and his team mates.

If Weissman continues the run of form he's on he'll be one hell of a player and won't be staying in Austria for too long! Probably taking a chance on this one but, Bayo is expected to leave on Loan or Permanently. I assume Klimala will go out to another Scottish club on Loan?

So that leaves us with Griff and Eddy for rotation, if we are playing 2 up top then we're going to need another striker at least!


1.) 09 Jun 2020 11:50:42
He's got a great record. Then again so did Bayo. That's the gamble you have to take though. If he moves to a better level and continues that sort of form then we'd have next to no chance of signing him, he'll be one that got away. So if we moved Bayo on and brought him in then I'd be happy with that.

2.) 09 Jun 2020 13:19:42
Correct, Wolfsberger are in a better league, they aren't close to being champions either with rapid vienna etc in there place. It wouldn't surprise me if Salzburg picked him up. He would be a good addition to our squad and seems a more convincing signing the more i look into the stats!

3.) 09 Jun 2020 14:10:07
From what I've read he's an option but only if edouard is sold, let's face it but, if edouard does stay then he's most likely going to be playing up top with Griffiths so I can't see us going for someone who will cost millions and be first team straight away.
He's got a cracking record in a better league with a year left on his deal so I think it's definetely worth exploring and sending bayo the other way.
Klimala only signed in January and is finding his feet so will most likely stay as backup and push for a first team place, just hope this isn't another 4m wasted.

4.) 09 Jun 2020 17:16:07
As a replacement to Edouard makes the idea a lot less attractive to me. From the footage I've seen he doesn't seem to have anywhere near as much about him. Very much a penalty box striker, which although can be important, and would be great to have alongside somebody like Edouard, I doubt very much he'd be a good replacement.

5.) 09 Jun 2020 17:35:21
Totally agree he's definelty not a direct replacement for edouard, he's more of a penalty box striker and we have Griffiths there for that providing he stays fit.
Wouldn't mind us going for him but if the price is right and he can fight it out for a first team place, a goalscorer after all is who will win you games.

6.) 09 Jun 2020 17:45:57
Agreed 👍. I think a CB might be a priority this window, that and a GK.

7.) 09 Jun 2020 18:23:04
Goalkeeper and a CB are without a doubt priority. We can't go from Forster to inferior keepers back to Forster and then back again to Bain. We need better cover at CB, and that's even if we keep hold of Ajer.

8.) 09 Jun 2020 20:57:23
Totally agree, if southampton are willing to play ball then the best case scenario for us would be to get forster on loan for another season then buy him permanently next summer when he has a year left on his deal, I just hope the big man can see how good celtic has been for him and he'll push for this move.
No disrespect to Bain or gordon but they're nowhere near the level we need, Gordon has been a great servant but he's on the downward slope now and Bain for me isn't celtic first team class, it's absolutely paramount we push the boat out to get forster back especially if we're going to try and make inroads in Europe again.

As for centre backs I reckon we need two in regardless if ajer stays or goes, possibly one for decent money to partner jullien and another on loan for cover with simunovic now away. I like ajer and he's still got plenty to learn but he's just way behind on the out and out defensive side which has been our downfall, struggles with positioning and timing most of the time.
If the rumours are true and we get an offer of at least 15m for him I say take it, get forster and a quality centre half in with another one or two for cover.

Maresca and Harkin make the most sense for me. Both worked alongside eachother for the past year at City.




05 Mar 2021 17:36:41
15m for Eddy, laughable. 15m + Choudrhuy and Iheanacho maybe.


1.) 05 Mar 2021 18:04:29
Yeah, what sort of offer is that £15m is ridiculous, considering we bought him for £7M when he was a nobody. There’s also a large percentage add on sell on transfer fee too.

2.) 05 Mar 2021 20:09:18
We paid 9 for eddy. 7 was for jullien.

3.) 05 Mar 2021 20:22:32
Just saw that Taylor is out of the game on Sunday. This means that the bomb scare who is Laxalt will be playing on Sunday. ☹️☹️.

4.) 05 Mar 2021 22:00:05
Thanks Kev for the correction, so on that basis 40% of the transfer goes to PSG, we’ll be selling at a loss!

5.) 06 Mar 2021 05:07:31
It’s 40% of any profit made by Celtic.
If those figures turn out to be correct,
then PSG would get 40% of £6 million profit.

6.) 06 Mar 2021 09:29:26
So we’d be selling him for 3.6 million? No thanks, I’d rather keep him till his contract runs out. Next season is massive if the winner gets automatic cl qualification.

7.) 06 Mar 2021 09:37:11
I thought a while back we’d paid the price on the park for keeping our prize assets when they wanted away albeit that’s easy to say now with 20/ 20 hindsight. We’d have collectively been in uproar had they been sold in the year we were going for the 10 but the situation should have been explained to us and the players named and shamed.

We’re now going to pay the price again when cashing our chips. Their resale value has gone down dramatically due to their performances having failed to hit the heights of previous seasons combined with the fact clubs know they want away and we need to release them.

If Eddy goes for £15m it will another humiliation in a year of humiliations and if it’s to Leicester that will just rub salt into the wounds.

8.) 06 Mar 2021 12:03:15
I just want a clear out and wantaway players like eddy can go first.

9.) 06 Mar 2021 12:25:22
Phil Eddy should have his ar$e booted down to London Road for a taxi and he’s not alone.

10.) 06 Mar 2021 16:15:56
JFP1888 your right mate. I hope next season its a very different team we see.

11.) 06 Mar 2021 17:46:07
40% of the profit. I can't believe people still don't know how these deals work.



25 Feb 2021 12:52:58
So if the rumours are true Desmon will pick the next manager, luckily Lawwell is out the picture and won't penny pinch again. Our most successful period in our history came the past few years after spending the cash and getting a real manager of quality in. Even after retaining £9m after the Rodgers fiasco we penny pinched for Lennon and look where that got us.

In reality that should give the board and club as a whole incentive to get out there and pick up a manager of real class.

Rodgers foundations carried Lennon to a 4th treble. As the days went on those foundations began to crumble under complacency at our massive club.

There is no room for error this time round.




19 Jan 2021 22:38:09
Moyes seem to being a decent job at West Ham. But no Lennon first. The Yes Man!


1.) 20 Jan 2021 07:44:10
I’m not buying into the bookies favourite Eddie Howe because he’s been available all season and if he was a realistic target, a deal would’ve been done by now.

2.) 20 Jan 2021 10:46:37
I ask why EH has not been snapped up already?

3.) 20 Jan 2021 11:30:37
He's now bookies favourite for the Newcastle Job.

4.) 20 Jan 2021 15:24:50
Didn’t a reporter interviewing lennie mention that the job was his until the end of the season.
Another calamitous decision, if we were going to change we need to give them time to bed in and see what the players are like, who wants to go etc. I agree with buzz that if Howe was the man we wanted we would have made a move, managers always get sacked in the prem around now. If we wanted him why would they wait? Or it could be the old lawell story, we tried everything to get him but could not match the finances offered in the prem. The longer it drags on, the more I think it will be Kennedy or Ross at best.



15 Jan 2021 17:14:21
I think at this stage we can all agree that there needs to be a complete overhaul at the club. We have got the facilities in place to really start and grow. After C.V. passes there should be no excuses for expanding the football side of things at our club.

Peter Lawwell has done us a great service in delivering a quadruple treble. 9 in a row and many other feats. I believe it's time for him to step down and let someone come in and transition into taking control of the club. Someone with a football orientated mind.

We continually see clubs the same level/ budget as us attracting talent and the majority of the time it's due to champions league football. I also assume that the majority of these clubs have scouting operations above and beyond ours considering half our players are decided upon by a glorified accountant.

I would love to see us as a challenging club not just in the champions league but in Europe in general. We played a blinder last season but from the off this season has been a disaster.

We should be miles ahead of the curve and shouldn't be challenged by anyone.

I’ve been thinking Keane from the start tbh. At least he won’t take any s**t from players and also would expect them to be on the top of their fitness or they’d simply not get a game. Maybe we need someone that’s hard on the players, we’ve been lightweight for a long time and always get destroyed by physical teams. Never had a manager in that light really. Closest I can think is Strachan. If we can find the happy mediums between good football and physicality we could really be a solid team moving forward.

Others may not agree, the psychological aspect of the game needs to be taken care of in the seasons coming, fitness and composure.

{Ed007's Note - I'm not going to slag any young lad that maybe lost his way/focus after losing his dad a couple of years ago at 18 I hope he goes on to have a good career or at least makes a right few quid and makes his family proud.
Considering the amount of strikers we have at the Club he was never going to get near the first team unless he had been an exceptional talent.
A lot of supporters would moan if he was on the bench over a fit LG or Klimala never mind Ajeti.}

Thanks for the information ED! Seems like there is plenty interest then, it wouldn’t be odd to see him move to England and develop. Seems like Dortmund are utilising the English market to tempt players into set ups where they won’t stagnate.


{Ed007's Note - A lot of teams on the continent are monitoring the youngsters in the Pub League these days which could maybe cause us some problems in the future when it comes to our targets down there.}

At what point was Laxalt marking White, it was brown who lost his man and never even got his feet off the ground.

Fact is they are one of the worst teams at defending from corners and we were playing it short. We are a shambles.

The club haven’t answered for anything and won’t. Stubborn arseholes the whole lot of them.

Clarke won’t leave Scotland when he’s just qualified for the Euros. That job is bigger than anything celtic can bring right now considering Scotland’s circumstances.

Celtic are the only fault here. Lawwell signing Lennon was the issue. If you remember back ED had spelled this exact scenario out. Standards have dropped at Celtic, the players clearly don’t have belief in that management team.

Some of the best players of all time have small stature. If you’re technically gifted and small you can still be a great footballer. Messi, Veratti, Insigne roll off the tongue quickly.
