Rubin Kazan, Bordeaux, Everton, Crystal Palace all getting in on the bidding war for Eddy now. While it'll make a lot of fans wring their hands it makes me sad. For me, he's the best striker we've had since Hooper - edging out Dembele purely for longevity - and it's become all-too-common for fans of my generation to only be able to enjoy a player for a brief period of time and wonder what could have been if we kept the gang together. He's not been the Eddy we know he can be lately so it's definitely the right time for him to move on so he goes with my best wishes. I'd love to see a good chunk of the money invested in a big brute of a CB.


1.) 27 Aug 2021 22:18:48
Agree that time for him to go. Not sure if better than Moussa, for me he was total footballer-almost like a third centre half with corners and so composed on the ball, also able to bring others in in way Edouard doesn’t. . Ed has that beautiful composure in the box or on a run towards. I just can’t stand the attitude and I also think that he might stifle Kyogo. I do 100% agree though that I would love us to bring in a proper centre half, preferably someone seasoned with bit of experience.

2.) 27 Aug 2021 23:28:31
On his day an unbelievable talent. Different player to Moussa so hard to compare but both supreme talents. Pity both saw us a stepping stone as both could have been legends.

3.) 28 Aug 2021 00:36:11
Different strengths Chinks you're right but in terms of pure footballing skill and ability, I'd go for Eddy. Dembele was a powerhouse.

4.) 28 Aug 2021 13:44:02
He stared to shine when mousa left imo. I don't think he's as gd as mousa different but not as tough as mousa which Eduard lacks.

5.) 28 Aug 2021 21:52:14
If he starts the two of them tomorrow eddy has to be on the left and kyogo through the middle.

"Rennes defender Sacha Boey (20) rejects Celtic due to the presence of foreign intermediaries, according to L'Équipe. "

Anybody got a clue what this even means?


{Ed002's Note - Sacha Boey (RB/LB) After a year on loan Celtic have opened discussions with the youngster who is cheaper than the preferred Brandon Soppy. Unfortunately, the approach taken was unusual and involved a third party who had demands of his own and this has blocked any move. This will likely of ended any chance of a move, although interest is maintained in Soppy.
Brandon Soppy (RB/CB) is refusing to extend his contract and wants to be playing at a higher-level has attracted interest from several sides but their is concern over his attitude. Rennes are more than happy to pass him on with an admission that Lens, Udinese/Watford, Monaco and Celtic have all enquired after him. Jonathan Barnet has been offering him around and raised the player with Celtic when discussing the future of Odsonne Edouard, and significantly, with Lille when discussing another player.}

1.) 20 Jul 2021 11:20:32
Why go for players with issues or get third parties involved? Totally amatuerish every season.



23 Jun 2021 20:44:59
Any news on the French right back we were supposedly chasing last week?


1.) 23 Jun 2021 22:09:24
Saw a French report Monaco are buying Christie for €5m.

2.) 24 Jun 2021 18:25:46
If/ when France is on the Green list, I'll drive him there!

3.) 24 Jun 2021 20:47:38
Pedro . bang on! lol HH.

4.) 24 Jun 2021 23:44:36
Magic pole he can sign a pre contract in a week as his contract expires on Jan 1st if we manage to get £1m we will be doing well.



28 May 2021 15:59:35
"Budget, backroom staff and personal reasons all factors in the deal collapsing"

Got to wonder what they were actually talking about for all those weeks then lol.


1.) 28 May 2021 16:10:54
Think it might turn out to be a blessing in disguise.

2.) 28 May 2021 16:13:53
Exactly Kevbhoy HH.

3.) 28 May 2021 16:29:03
Until we get rid of the board of Tory barsteward rubbishbags we are going nowhere but down. They coukdnt run a few feet. I detest every one of them. rubbishbags and useless. Nobody 8s surprised because we know how osthet8c they are. If I hear 9ne person saying Lawell is s good b7snessmsn I will feckin scream. A cheap skate prick who failed 9 out 12 times to qualify for the CL. A cheap skate can't. He needs to take the rest of them. with him.

4.) 28 May 2021 16:49:33
Not happy with the budget must send out a warning to us already . One smack in the face after another this season/ year from Celtic.

5.) 28 May 2021 16:51:28
That's assuming they were talking to him. Nothing surprises me with the board any more.



06 Apr 2021 09:20:46
I saw a rumour that we're interested in Kristijan Lovric. We were linked with him last season as well so it would definitely fall into the category of a "club signing" but probably one that would please a lot of the fans if the incoming manager was on board with it. He's 25, Croatian international, can play either wing and has excellent delivery from set pieces. He's been at Gorica for 3 seasons now so not the highest level but has 44 goals and 21 assists in 90 games which is impressive.


1.) 06 Apr 2021 10:43:30
Have we not had enough Lawells to last us a lifetime?

2.) 06 Apr 2021 11:13:02
Definitely Magicpole but there's a difference between a Lawwell ego signing and taking advantage of prudent scouting. I'd be surprised if it came to anything but it's the sort of profile I'd love to see this summer; International players who are flying at their clubs, full of confidence and hungry to make the step up.

3.) 06 Apr 2021 11:30:35
Kevbhoy, it's more media nonsense. We don't have a head of recruitment, we don't have a manager and our new CEO hasn't started yet so unless it's the tea lady doing the deal I wouldn't be getting too excited just now. HH.

4.) 06 Apr 2021 12:10:55
It would definitely be a surprise if it happened Besty but, like I said, it's the type of player profile I'll be hoping for once the appropriate people are in place. We've had too many hopeful punts over the past few years.

5.) 06 Apr 2021 14:28:24
Paper talk and as mentioned, unless it's the tea lady it's made up crap.

6.) 06 Apr 2021 15:16:35
I would like to thank surely Celtic have learned the lesson about signing players without the manager or perhaps the DoF okaying it and IF we do bring in a player without a manager being announced I would hope that we have some one sorted for the position as manager and he has agreed to the signing WE certainly don't want to go back to the PL mentality as far as players signing goes surely we have learned that lesson if nothing else.

7.) 06 Apr 2021 15:38:24
Magicpole how can you confidently say its paper talk when you were having a meltdown in the above thread about paper talk.

8.) 06 Apr 2021 18:19:49
He certainly can't DC because it was on a Celtic fan page lol.

9.) 07 Apr 2021 00:35:57
I am not saying the story is true but just because Lawwell is leaving and Hammond has left, does not mean we have stopped looking at players and that we can't move for a player if the opportunity arises.

John Kennedy said as much the other day.

10.) 07 Apr 2021 10:59:12
Exactly LAW. It would be crazy to throw months or years of scouting in the bin just because Nick Hammond has left. The key is making sure the new DOF or manager like what's presented to them rather than just charging on and signing players.

11.) 07 Apr 2021 11:47:50
DC you are right. We don't know anything. Not a single thing. I was having a meltdown not because of the papers, but what came out of Strachan's mouth. That was clear it's not in the bag. As for anything else going on, you're right. We sometimes choose what we wish is true to believe. I think we all need to knock that on the head.

What's everyone's thoughts for Thursday? My team would be:

JJ Starfelt CCV Monty
McCarthy McGregor
Abada Forrest Jota

This is based on the assumption that Forrest makes it. If not I'd have Turnbull in the 10 role but I've not been very impressed with him overall. Maybe even Bitton at CDM with McGregor further on because he's quite reliable when he's not at CB.


1.) 14 Sep 2021 20:07:33
I'd go with Ralston at RB if he's fit and can perform as he has done so far this season. The lad has been immense. If we had bought him in the Summer and he was playing the way he has been then we'd all be saying he was a great acquisition. His confidence is pretty good at the moment and if we want to keep him long term then we need to show him some loyalty. Juranovic can play in other positions if needed. HH.

2.) 14 Sep 2021 20:07:43
I would’ve played Welsh with CCV on Saturday with the Betis game in mind.
They would’ve been my first choice pairing but I don’t think a game in Spain is ideal for their first game together.
So I think Ange will go with your pairing Kev.

3.) 14 Sep 2021 21:04:40
Besty, Ralston has been great but I don't think Juranovic should have to be shifted out to LB to accommodate him, especially when we have young Montgomery who's looked really promising?

4.) 14 Sep 2021 21:20:58
Welsh for starfeldt and rogic for mcarthy. Probably ralston on right and jj on left. I like monty but I think he will be a sub in second half along with mcarthy and hopefully see the Greek boy as well.

5.) 14 Sep 2021 22:17:31
we talk about our young scottish players wanting to leave for not seeing a pathway to the first team now we have them in the team they are the first some want dropped as its easy to drop the scottish boys, there's no way welsh and ralston should not be in our first 11 they have been outstanding.



03 Sep 2021 09:01:18
I'll let others argue the toss about whether Giakoumakis should have been given the No. 7 shirt or whether the number's already been diminished by some of its previous wearers. Personally I'm just delighted we're going to be hearing the Magnificent Seven tune after some goals again!


1.) 03 Sep 2021 10:40:01
You would think after being top goal scorer last season in a poor team ge should do well kev.

2.) 03 Sep 2021 11:21:50
This is Not a negative post, just an observation.
The Bhoy, he’s a Bhoy now no matter what, is 26 yrs old, he had a brilliant season past, he was on 800 a week with Wvenlo, this is his first decent footballing wage.
I really hope he drives on, lives up to the No7,this is top billing at Celtic and scores 26 for us this season.

3.) 03 Sep 2021 11:55:15
Mally not wanting to kick the bhoy down before he gets on the park but last season could have been a flash in the pan as his average before that was 5 a season. but yes hopefully he'll batter in 20 plus goals. Malika I'm sure I seen somewhere he was on €2500 a week at vvv.

4.) 03 Sep 2021 14:49:32
Some players mature slower than others maybe this is him maturing.

5.) 03 Sep 2021 16:40:34
Bhoys, why is there even a debate on whether our newest Striker will be a success or not or the relevance of the number he's selected? 🤔

He hasn't even kicked a ball and as far as I can tell cost less than Klimala and a few others yet arrives in the East End having finished top scorer in a league that is equal to, if not, likely better than ours.

Being realistic I don't expect the lad to be anywhere near some of our legendary players who wore the No.7 but if he comes in, works hard and bangs in a few goals, I'll be happy.

6.) 03 Sep 2021 17:04:56
Before he signed for Venlo, he had a few injuries and his appearances seem to have a high number from bench within final 3rd of game time.

Venlo looks like first club he has been at, where he has had a good run of games from starting line up.

I think he will do well for us.

I've never really been bothered who wears any number at club. As long as they play well on the park is what matters to me.

When number 7 is mentioned, it will always be associated with Henrik. Players who have wore it since I genuinely forgot about.

7.) 03 Sep 2021 17:07:10
I think Ange is taking a gamble by leaving us with only having 3 strikers until January, with Celtic competing in 3 different competitions.
If our new Greek signing is decent, then all is good but we’ve all seen the opposite happen with our forward players in recent seasons.
It looks like Ange trusts Ajeti to do a job for Celtic, otherwise he would’ve added to our forward line.
I believe Ange has got another forward player from the J-League in mind for the January transfer window.

8.) 03 Sep 2021 17:43:15
Buzz, I hear what you're saying and you're right - we've essentially got two Strikers that Ange trusts although, personally, I'd use Ajeti when we're either playing against weaker opposition or when we're ahead in certain games, as it would give him minutes and give others a rest.

As for Giorgious, at 6ft 1, I think he gives us a Plan B and if he can get off the mark fairly quickly he'll do alright 😉.

9.) 03 Sep 2021 18:20:43
Jota can play all across the top I think buzz.

10.) 04 Sep 2021 10:49:42
Ok let's just take the numbers away. IMO Keep to just sponsors and players names on it.
I was never one for numbers on shirts I don't actually care. As long as they play for us and play well what if our right back scored 25 goals this season is that going to be a hard act to follow that number. Let's see what this team can do. Ange has to deliver a little this season as he has been backed more than any manager that I can remember.
Im excited to see how this team will gel.
We all know we need a holding fighter in the midfield the guy Vickers will be on that roll. Calmac has this soro has it. But just in front of them rogic Turnbull don't have that gritty fight in them.
So who will be on the bench if Vickers play does McCarthy have it I for one can't wait for next week to come to see what Ange does and how he brings this new team together.
As of now I think only calmac and rogic are left on the starting 11 from the old guard but rogic had a blinder of a game for his country.

11.) 04 Sep 2021 13:21:55
Looking at VVV stats from last season, not only did they only score 43 goals in the league but they never created much shots at goal in games they played.

I personally think playing Giakoumakis in system we have with players we have, I reckon he will do well for us.

12.) 04 Sep 2021 14:05:29
Hope you are right @dnm38.

13.) 04 Sep 2021 19:03:14
I agree, I think the lad looks really good. He will need to be, an important season with so much at stake. Good luck son.



31 Aug 2021 23:30:42
Not the most frantic of deadline days but, as always, big thanks to Ed for putting up with us all. Whispers of a last ditch Carter Vickers as well.


{Ed007's Note - Thanks mate, I know I can be a wee crabit during the transfer windows - blame Rich T for that - but I really apprecate all the support and people getting involved on here and the podcast etc.
I said on the podcast earlier tonight, when the window in England closes opportunities will open up.}

1.) 01 Sep 2021 00:00:00
Is he any good? . Looks like he's signed on loan with option to buy.



30 Aug 2021 22:13:25
Ed I remember you floating the name Odsonne Edouard to us about a week before the papers picked up on his loan to us. Give us a wee golden nugget of info for old times sake lol.


{Ed007's Note - I've got nothing, Kev, sorry. I was holding out to try and spring Ronaldo on you all but that auld bam Ferguson got him on the phone before I could get through, and we went for James McCarthy and potential POTY Starfelt over Messi. 😁

1.) 30 Aug 2021 23:24:50
Tbf we couldn't afford, nor justify, Messi getting wages as high as Starfelt's anyway.

{Ed007's Note - I've £20k worth of GHG stashed up the loft thinking Messi's agent would have been looking for it, that,s our pension fund fecked and I'll need pumped up on the HGH to to tell Grotbags we're skint and she'll need to apply for Babeststion again.
It's not all podcasts, groupies and living the OG life you know.}



29 Aug 2021 17:28:51
Perspective is the word of the day. Compared to last season it's a vast improvement in terms of general performance as we controlled most of the game and looked reasonably comfortable. Ange has already admitted he should have stuck with Kyogo through the middle but hindsight is great. We need to finish the window strongly, make the Eddy money count and I think we can definitely win the title back.

I feel the McCarthy deal may have ruled this one out but would love to be wrong. How much are St. Johnstone likely to take for him, 3 or 4 mil? I'd probably go for that tbh or Lewis Ferguson. McCann a bit more lightweight and technical.

The skills and flicks are very impressive Mally but not too much in the way of final ball or finishing. If he can a bit more of that to his game with us he should be a massive success and one to get the fans off their seats.

Lovric is more experienced, in red hot form and by all accounts would cost a smaller fee than Jota. There's no proof we were ever definitely in for him but he seems a better option to me.

Yeah DC, Starfelt was solid today. They were limited to almost no chances from open play.

Unless you have some inside info then I'd say it's pretty absurd to suggest Kennedy and Strachan didn't give their input to the manager. Nobody was singi g their praises when we were winning 6-0 and beating AZ. You can lead a horse to water.

The club doesn't stand for adherence to C.V. restrictions. He made a selfish and arrogant choice but there have been plenty of players that have done just as bad or worse.

I said a couple of weeks ago I'd like to see the lad Moffat get a sniff but since then I've heard that the B Team players can't actually get promoted to the first team until their season is over. I don't know if that's true but it was to do with the B Team being in a proper senior league they can't just float between the two teams. Ed could maybe clarify.

It doesn't matter if he was a great servant or not Buzz, he shouldn't be spouting he wasn't challenged enough when there's plenty of evidence that he was. If we should let players leave with 2 seasons left because we're a stepping stone then the players who get to use that stepping stone should appreciate the platform we gave them and not talk down the league once they're gone.
