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.

So at the moment we're missing Rogic and Maeda while they're missing Aribo (maybe) and Morelos. I'm glad that neither team will meet the criteria for a postponement as it means we don't have to listen to all the childish bickering that comes with it. Plus both teams are missing their most creative midfielder and their main striker so it's as even as it can be really.




08 Jan 2022 11:23:20
I think 6 months in Serie A with Udinese could have been the making of Stephen Welsh. I wouldn't have agreed to the loan to buy but if they were happy for just a 6 month loan I'd seriously consider it.


1.) 08 Jan 2022 12:06:14
Celtic need Stephen Welsh for the 2nd half of the season.
We don’t know how Jullian will recover at this stage.
We also don’t know if Starfelt is going to improve.
If Celtic allow Welsh to leave, we might be forced to play Bitton or Scales at Centre Back at some stage.

2.) 08 Jan 2022 13:04:00
I would usually agree with the point you make in this case Kevbhoy, but as BuzzBomb says, we need Stephen with us in the East End to help us win this league as there too many variables.

☘ ? ☘.

3.) 08 Jan 2022 13:13:52
Fair enough but going by what we've seen so far, Starfelt is going to be the main pick alongside CCV whether he improves or not.

4.) 08 Jan 2022 13:44:47
Seen a lot of debate this morning that Welsh is ahead of Starfelt. Young man has potential but still 4th choice for me when everyone is fit.

5.) 08 Jan 2022 14:12:41
Starfelt is 26 and Welsh is 21, right now Starfelt is the more accomplished player but if Welsh can get into the first team in the next year or so I'd have every confidence he could be better at 26. Like I said, I hope he's got a big future with us but a wee stint up against guys like Zlatan, Dzeko, Vlahovic and Immobile would be absolutely priceless to a young CB.



31 Dec 2021 12:52:07
Excellent business by Celtic getting the Japanese lads signed up so quickly. That's a massive step by Michael Nicholson towards getting doubting fans onside. Maeda looks such a handful up top and has really found his shooting boots this season. Ideguchi had so much promise a few years ago and I hope he sees this as a chance to prove a point. The one I'm most excited about is Hatate. As much as I think Turnbull has done well, for me he doesn't quite have the energy that we want for 90 minutes and by all accounts this guy is just non-stop action. Hatate, McGregor and Rogic could be an absolute nightmare for teams.


1.) 31 Dec 2021 13:30:21
Julien could be like a new signing also once he's up to speed.

2.) 31 Dec 2021 16:33:57
Missed big julien in both boxes, But is a year out with knee injury going to be too much to fully recover from at this stage in his career? Thoughts?



22 Dec 2021 23:55:39
Tonight's game was kot one I was looking forward to beforehand. I had a feeling all the chat about them being decimated etc would come back to bite us. It's a terrible result, the team were shocking and the crowd seemed uncharacteristically subdued. On to the next one. 6 points is not insurmountable by any means.


1.) 23 Dec 2021 00:06:23
I wondered about the crowd tonight too Kev, thought it was just the crappy stream I had. Don't know if it was another protest or they were just shocked at how bad we were.

2.) 23 Dec 2021 10:34:40
I think if you were watching on Celtic TV the crowd noise was low/ dull. But on st. mirren TV the crowd where loud and could clearly be heard signing etc right up to final whistle.

3.) 23 Dec 2021 13:17:41
Fair enough Wylie, I think it must have been my stream. The team certainly didn't give them much to sing about either right enough.



22 Dec 2021 12:22:17
I've been very impressed with the transparency and level-headedness of Motherwell CEO Alan Burrows. I know we've also made a statement but he engages with the support at appropriate times and makes it known they are the club's priority. A far cry from our own club.

It would be hard to blame him (assuming he's a Benfica fan) . If one of us was loaned out from Celtic but then the club realised they wanted us back we'd go in a heartbeat. Need to just cross our fingers and wait and see.

It seems like there is good cohesion between Ange and the club's scouting department. The Japanese guys and McGree seem like definite Ange picks whereas Hart, Abada and O'Riley seem more like the profile of player we'd normally go for. The boy looks a good player with a good attitude so happy days of it goes through.

Hardly cash before career Mally. Hell be playing against better teams week in, week out than he would if he signed for us.

It's a strange story. One report is saying we agreed roughly £3M with his club but Boro have come in with "an improved offer of £2M more". That could be £2M more than they originally offered but I read it as they've offered £5M when his club have already said they'll accept 3 which seems a mental way to do business.

Hopefully we have Giakoumakis back fit by then. He's not had a good start but if he can get a few games under his belt he would give us a really good presence up top for that game. If they could take just one out of Kyogo/ Maeda that would be lovely lol.

Wee bit harsh calling him a gamble Buzz. Like you say, he'd be our 2nd choice quite comfortably.

There's no doubt he's a talented footballer. His main strength is the defensive side of the game but his problem is moments of rashness which means he often gets booked very early in games. After that he's walking a tightrope which essentially makes him a man down.

Ed, could the fact that he's a previous holder of a UK work permit come into the decision making?


{Ed007's Note - I hadn't thought of that, it's a good point Kev - it might have something to do with it but I really don't know.}
