I know there has been interest in Ajer for a long time especially abroad in Germany. But these latest comments from his agent? All articles say "He said" with no context or Comment from the source (that doesn't exist) when referencing his agent. All the papers are running the same story with the same information if anyone's interested.

It is probably just the usual hacks trying to disrupt the team before we play their tribute act?


2.) 12 Mar 2020 19:50:18
Personally if we get anything over 13 million with a sell on he’s welcome to go. He has potential undoubtedly and I like his whole hearted ness but he’s by no means irreplaceable . He could be one of the players that regret moving from us .


3.) 12 Mar 2020 22:14:49
We always get this bs of players wanting to leave or big clubs going to bid for our players on the run up to the Derby games.
I don't know why anyone would read anything that is printed in the person media.


4.) 14 Mar 2020 12:04:02
Ajer is not as good a footballer as he thinks he is. He might someday. Any sensible bid should be accepted. We need experience and some brutality in the cd department.

Jeremie Frimpong on route to Glasgow to complete a 4 year deal from Manchester City. Very highly rated Right Back with 1 year left on his deal. Unlikely to get a look in at city due to the signing of Cancelo.

One for development and can play LB also. May get his chance if injuries are concerned and should be fighting for a place within a year or two. Another example of our youth set up stepping it's game up and poaching players from the top English teams.

Looks like Jack Stacey will come in at Right Back, Perraud is still being talked about and may be down to the Tierney fiasco. Another CB is on Lennons want list and also a striker and CAM it seems. Let's see how this pans out.

If we cover all the positions you have just mentioned with quality additions it will have been a good summer of transfer business. Still reckon where will be some departures.

Celtic have opened talks with Rapid Vienna for Boli Mbombo. Talks have been ongoing with Perraud Fromm Paris FC. Celtic appear to have the advantage over other clubs for both the players.

Jullien will be complete after a medical if all goes to plan.

Turnbull appears to have a small issue with his knee which requires attention and will be missing for 10-12 weeks if signed. Celtic trying to lower the price of the deal probably to around the 2m mark.

Celtic also in talks with Tommy Smith and "Zanka" of Huddersfield. Talks with Ankersen of Copenhagen seem to have cooled.

Luca Connel has a number of options including Norwich and Middlesbrough. Celtic may offer a deal if applicable.

We will be in the market for another striker and potentially another midfielder if Ntcham leaves. He will only leave if Celtic get the 13 million pounds they are after.

Boli Bolingoli Mbombo. Get that bhoy signed up just for his name alone! I'm not one who believes we should use the KT money (if he goes) and use almost all of it to replace him. I'm more than happy for it to be spread across a few players throughout the squad in the £3-6M bracket to give us far more strength in depth overall. However, a marquee signing would be great.


2.) 27 Jun 2019 10:37:22
I agree Kev. Tierney is a prodigy but if he wishes to move then I wish him the best of luck. He’ll be back one day. If we used all of the money and the price was right then yes I’m for it. £25m spread across our squad. 4-5 top signings would see us challenge at a higher level in Europe and wipe the floor with the league. I strongly believe that due to the calibre of Jullien we are looking to strengthen and have a good base squad that can challenge. The calibre of players we are linked with are much more like it and am very impressed.

I can’t imagine we will pay the reported 9 million fee for a player that has scored two goals all season.


2.) 16 May 2019 15:43:56
He’s an upgrade on what we’ve got to be honest.


3.) 16 May 2019 16:36:16
Haven’t really seen a lot of him to be honest, just can’t imagine us paying out that figure again for someone who’s not that prolific. 🤷‍♂️.


4.) 16 May 2019 18:04:11
Paid 9 for eddy and he wasn't exactly experienced.


5.) 16 May 2019 18:31:45
He’s a previous France U21 with premier league experience, needs the right club to shine. Champions league football and a different coach may be the difference in the boy.


6.) 16 May 2019 19:57:15
You have done it again Kev, where did I say about him being experienced? I said I couldn’t see us paying that for someone that has scored two goals, we paid 9 for eddy after having him on loan / trial for a season to make sure we knew what we were getting .


7.) 16 May 2019 20:25:56
I never said you said anything about experience Quinn, so no need to pish your panties
All I was meaning with the comparison we that it sounds similar to the eddy deal.
Not a lot of top team action and not a lot of top team goals.
That's what 9 million gets you now a days.


8.) 16 May 2019 21:22:22
I still can’t see us spending that amount again easily, I think peter had to lay down for about a month after signing that cheque.


9.) 16 May 2019 21:39:54
I wouldn't be so sure because we bid 7 million for a right back. But it won't become a regular thing I don't think. Once every now and then.


10.) 18 May 2019 00:22:29
Kev ed already said that bid was a smokescreen cos the player said he wasnt interested before the bid was made. Smokescreen may be the wrong word, just the best I could muster.

Btw lads, Taylor has got some cross on him and is becoming a better player game by game. Maybe he will realise his potential in the end.

His passing into feet is excellent.


2.) 13 Feb 2020 12:59:21
All credit to NL for easing him into the role as this was a huge jump for him and I think he will only get better. Bolingoli was not bad going forward, but had a lot of defensive faults that Taylor doesn't.


3.) 13 Feb 2020 13:08:27
I'm delighted to see Taylor getting involved more now. Maybe he did just need to get involved with the squad for a while before being thrown in to games and he appears to be delivering what I thought he could. It's also great to see his determination to play well and give it everything he has. HH.


4.) 13 Feb 2020 13:25:30
Was at my first game of the season last nite, don’t get to many because of work! Thought we beat them in 2nd gear really. like the look of Taylor in there and like the rest o the lads say, his passing is spot on! The only thing the holds him back in the 352 is his lack of pace to beat a man. that little burst of pace in the final 3rd is all he’s lacking but otherwise thought him and ntcham were our best players along with big jullien! Big man will reach double figures by may! We’ve long waited for a defender who’s dangerous in the opposition box! And I must say griffs delivery is brilliant. my only grip last nite was some of our passing, especially from ajer and forest. lost count how many times they gave the ball away! Need to tighten it up a bit. but 5 goals none against and the Rangers floundering once again makes it an all round great nite 😜.


5.) 14 Feb 2020 13:52:02
Ajer and Forrest have been guilty of that recently hopefully it will be addressed and rectified.


 

 

04 Feb 2020 09:33:23
Just to say what a start to the new year for us in terms of results. I can't believe people are still complaining. You only hear complaints going around nowadays. The site goes quiet when we play well and it's booming when we are playing Sh**e!

Embrace it. 7 points clear long may it continue.

I really think that the only thing stopping us now would be complacency 👍.


 

 

23 Jan 2020 10:04:55
What I realised about the formation last night is that as the wing backs progressed up the pitch, Ajer and Simunovic went wide, acting left and right back, brown drops to partner Jullien, we have more up the pitch and two players still covering the wide areas. It was highly affective. Two up top was great. Where are all the Griffiths doubters today lol?

KenLikeEh

1.) 23 Jan 2020 11:06:42
I thought brown played too deep so many times when Jullien was attacking the ball brown was dropping and getting in his way. Don’t like the 3 at the back either with the bhoys we have there. Jozo will get caught out he would need to play in the middle of the 3 against any decent opposition tho Jullien is better if this is a way we are looking to play we need a left sided player and allow Ajer to go on the right. That said enjoyed the game last night 2nd half was far better lot more urgency. Pitch was more against us than anything they threatened lot of slips last night.


2.) 23 Jan 2020 11:12:13
People need to calm down in the griffiths front.
Yes it's great he is back playing
Yes it's great he is back scoring
But you can still see that he is not totally focused or at peace mentally at the moment. What he done last night was daft and shouldn't have happened. Hopefully playing and scoring will help towards getting him in right frame of mind but it's still 50/ 50 in my mind whether he will still be at parkhead next season.


3.) 23 Jan 2020 12:26:51
Kev, scumbag opposition fans are not really giving the lad a chance, are they? I know football fans in general are a cruel bunch with some of the stuff they come out with and we have our own fair share in our stadium but to abuse someone fighting mental health is a feckin disgrace. The same **** would be delighted if Griff were to go into total meltdown. or worse, God forbid. HH.


4.) 23 Jan 2020 12:41:57
That was one of the better performances we’ve had this season in all honesty welshy. We’ve been off the boil for a while in terms of killing games dead and we done that last night. As for Griffiths him scoring 2 goals in 2 games and getting an assist is a big step in the right direction anyway Kev! I can see why you think that way though. He’s got a long way to go but can’t deny he has been good so far. Him and Eddy linked up really well last night.


5.) 23 Jan 2020 12:59:40
Browns dropping in front of the defender attacking the ball to create a block to the opposition attackers jump and to be there for the second ball. Watch brown closely and u will see him trying to position himself to where the ball will drop.


6.) 23 Jan 2020 17:32:29
Your correct on all counts there bestbhoy but as a professional footballer it comes with the territory and you've got to rise above it. Griff at peace and focused would rise above it but at moment it's getting to him.
Hopefully he channels it into his game and shuts them up.

Has anyone got some Genuine information on Klimala that might be of interest? Is he a player that has been tipped for good things and is there any potential there? There must be something about him if we are spending €4m on him? ED have u got anything on this guy?

KenLikeEh

{Ed007's Note - No mate, I don't know much about him.}


1.) 13 Jan 2020 19:31:51
To us supporters he’s a bit of an unknown but certainly he’s being talked up in his homeland. Zurawski has said he’s the hottest young talent in the country. I’m not saying that means anything but we just have to see what this guy can do when he steps out onto the field. A lot of fans are saying they are underwhelmed by The lad but let’s wait and see he may be an absolute gem. Time will tell. I for one am willing to give him a chance.

{Ed007's Note - A lot of fans were underwhelmed by Dembele and Edouard, Frimpong was "another Man City project", Jullien wasn't good enough and wasn't a Lennon signing etc etc
I sometimes wonder what some fans expect, it's not as if we're going to be in for top-end players from England or France where mediocre players go for millions (Harry Maguire for £80 million - more than VVD - and I honestly wouldn't swap Ajer for him) so we need to look at the level below that.
There's been plenty of signings I wasn't keen on for one reason or another - some I've made an ar$e of it and there's some I've been spot on about - but I always give them a chance and see what they can do once they're settled etc. and Klimala deserves the chance to show what he can do.
I'm just hoping Hammond has had input on the transfer targets and we're trusting someone apart from Lawwell on players ability/potential.
I still think we need to have a serious look and possible overhaul of the scouting system but that can take time and again hopefully Hammond can get that sorted out.}


2.) 13 Jan 2020 20:09:07
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.


3.) 13 Jan 2020 21:10:08
Lennon was waxing lyrical about Hammond at the AGM Ed so hopefully that's a positive sign that he's having the biggest input on scouting matters.

{Ed007's Note - Oh ffs! That's the kiss of death if Lennon's backing him 😋 I wonder if Lawwell wrote that for him.}


 

 

12 Jan 2020 20:34:33
Lennons comments on Shved seemed promising. Hopefully he can kick on now and bring that bit of flair that we are missing right now. We need to find the back of the net easier and Arzani/ Shved might bring something different to our game if they keep it up.

1.) 12 Jan 2020 21:19:48
It's obvious we need serious competition and quality in the wide areas. Misfit Morgan and Sinclair have been papped out the door, while MJ has yet to convince - so let's see what they can do?

Doesn’t matter where he goes as long as he gets game time and is being coached correctly. McGregor went to notts and that worked wonders for him 👍👍.

Funnily enough I would say Baeur has one of the best crosses in our team and always puts a dangerous ball in the area. Quite quick and not as strong defensively. Still don’t think he’s been a bad loan and offers something different.

Sooner Rogic goes the better to be honest. Good player on his day but his time is up, never reached his potential based on injuries. Scored some amazing and meaningful goals for us but at the same time I think we’re trying to get this clubs moving and challenging in Europe again going by the calibre of players we are actually looking at. We have the projects here and now, we’ll keep adding as new players come through. I think it’s time to start clearing the odd player here and there and replacing them. We have the depth available and the new facilities will help immensely with our youth set ups and indoor training for the winter. All massive bonuses moving forward but it’s about seeing this tough month through and getting to that winter break. Rest recuperate and come back for more with a couple new signings to bed in. My honest opinion is that Rogic and Ntcham might move on and Wanyama (dependant on Ntcham situation) will come in. A new striker and potentially another that can come in and play centre back.

I’m with Kev on this one. Name a player that we could get in that’s as Diverse a player as Bitton. He’s been class for us when he has played and showed what he can do numerous times. Pretty sure the management know why they want and need him round the squad. He is a great example for the younger players on how to conduct yourself around a big club. The man loves Celtic.

Agreed Cory. The mans devoted his career and life to Celtic and would love to see him be involved in our youth set up to a degree in future. Certainly a great role model for the club.

As for legend status he’s already a legend in my eyes. He will have been involved in all trophies from the beginning of the 10 to the end of the 10.

I like the idea of a older forward as a sort of mentor. A lot of players take a lot of learning off of senior players especially players like broony. There’s more than just skill in football knowledge is also key and that’s where it usually shines out of older more experienced players. If we brought in a striker who could do that for the younger strikers then it’s a win win.

To call him rubbish is unfair Kev and you know it is. Maybe not good enough for Celtic but certainly not bad. If he was playing for a championship team in England I’d expect he’d still score a lot of goals and probably then we’d want to take a shot at him. Who knows stranger things have happened.
