There's a midfielder from Gent who's been linked with us on KDS; Elisha Owusu, Ghanaian International. I'm not sure there's anything in it tbh but he's definitely the profile of a No. 6 I'd like us to go for. Good timing in the tackle, quick, strong and athletic but also very good technically - not just a bruiser. Also, good to have you back Ed.

Kevbhoy

{Ed007's Note - Thanks, Kev. Elisha Owusu of Gent and Aliou Dieng who plays for Al Ahly have both supposedly been scouted for that role.}


1.) 30 May 2022 21:56:45
Yeah I've seen both names mentioned Ed. Like a good few of Ange's signings I'm sure it'll end up being a signing out of nowhere but, like I said, if he fits the profile I'll be happy.

{Ed007's Note - We need to look at the Mark Lawwell factor as well when it comes to potential signings.}

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.

Kevbhoy

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?

Kevbhoy

{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.

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.

"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.

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.

With Luca Connell's departure confirmed, I wonder if it will make young players think twice about joining us. We pick up a good number of breakthrough players who never seem to be given a chance in our first team. Shaw, Uroghide and Kenny are probably in danger of falling into the same category and it just seems a bit of a waste.

Kevbhoy

1.) 15 Jun 2022 00:51:39
Kev, I don't believe it will make young players think twice about joining Celtic and for me, neither it should, as the challenge is no different at any other club in Europe as far as I'm aware.

Any player with the ambition to play at the highest level and who truly believes in their own ability, should be looking to sign for Celtic.

Many may never make it as a first regular but can still continue to play, earning a good living at another club with the experience of being on Celtics books having helped them on their way to becoming a more rounded professional player.

Whilst in recent years, the pathway to the first team has been very limited, we now have a manager in Ange who gives youth a chance but they need to earn it.

An example of this must surely be Tony Ralston and look at the season he's just had, signed a new 4 year contract and has been capped for Scotland.

Could it be better, yes it could, and you'd hope with improvements in the youth set up and infrastructure that a higher percentage of our young players will progress to and star in the first team at Celtic in the future.

Of the starting 11 players in last seasons first team, as far as I can see, only two were Scottish and only one of those came through the youth set up, which tells me there's some way to go but I'm optimistic we'll get there.

☘️ ? ☘️.


2.) 15 Jun 2022 08:11:13
Every big club is the same, there's always a huge turnover of players, but young players are always going to want to come because they're mindset will be that their good enough to make the grade.


3.) 15 Jun 2022 11:03:43
I agree with you guys but when you look at Connell, Bolton were gutted to see him go and he was pretty much guaranteed first team football - although I understand they were ein financial trouble. The big move is always going to be tempting but sometimes it's better to stay put and get games under your belt than potentially set your career back a number of years.


4.) 15 Jun 2022 14:47:44
Kev Jim Goodwin the Irish U-21s manager said Luca wasted 3yrs at Celtic. He didn't improve as a player because he was out on loan for 3 season instead of being involved in the fitst team under Lennon. Luca was always in the Irish U-21s team and hasn't been involved with them for last 2 seasons. Luca is a very talented young player and I still have high hopes for him as I was delighted Celtic snapped him up.


5.) 15 Jun 2022 19:32:31
You summed my thoughts up perfectly Paul. I don't think the club are in the wrong in any way, it's just a shame to see a young lad not living up to his obvious potential. Such is life.


6.) 15 Jun 2022 22:09:39
He wasnt good enough. It happens. Watched him a few times in the B team and he looked nowhere near Celtic class. Was worth the punt but unfortunately didn't work out.


 

 

16 May 2022 09:19:56
Nice to see Jack Hendry coming on leaps and bounds and enjoying success over in Belgium. He was always a solid, dedicated pro but was just the wrong fit at the wrong time for Celtic and we couldn't afford to give him the time he needed to reach the level he's at now.

Kevbhoy

1.) 16 May 2022 18:23:24
Personally I always thought Hendry was horrendous playing for us, and didn't see much improvement when he played for Scotland either.

{Ed007's Note - Last I heard he was warming the bench in Belgium. He was never Celtic class.}


2.) 16 May 2022 19:25:37
I always thought Jack Hendry was good and composed with the ball at his feet but he was poor at basic defending.
Jack has only played 3 full games for his club this calendar year.


3.) 16 May 2022 21:36:39
I never liked the look of him when he played for us at all Buzz and it's been proven that letting him go was the right decision for all parties. He's now got CL and international experience plus a league winner's medal in his back pocket.


4.) 17 May 2022 10:40:47
He's had an issue with getting game time as a result of issues with his gaffer rather than form. Add him to the list of people who couldn't cope with the pressure of playing for Celtic.


 

 

07 May 2022 16:18:22
To go from losing the league by 25 points last season to being imperious victors this season is nothing short of incredible. I am delighted and so proud of what our club has achieved this season. Next season, the focus must shift to maintaining our domestic dominance and serious progression in Europe. It will need us all pulling in the same direction but with Ange at the helm I believe we can do great things!

Kevbhoy

1.) 07 May 2022 16:57:05
@Kevbhoy big Ange has proven he is a top class manager and has an eye for a player, I am sure he has already identified players to bring in and just as important TOLD the Board he expects their full cooperation. HH.


 

 

02 May 2022 18:02:19
I think it was myself and Buzz who had a debate about how them winning the EL could affect us in the CL. Dale Johnson from ESPN tweeted the following this evening. Great news:

"Rangers, of course, would avoid the Champions League qualifiers by winning the Europa League.

It would mean both Celtic AND Rangers would go direct to the group stage.

Rangers would be seeded in the group stage draw as UEL titleholders, while Celtic would likely be in Pot 4.".

Kevbhoy

1.) 02 May 2022 18:57:09
I don’t think it was me that was debating with you Kev because I already knew the information above.


2.) 02 May 2022 19:24:58
UEFA confirmed today that Russia will remain suspended and the Russian clubs will be banned from their European competitions next season.
It means that Villarreal could win the Champions League this season and Celtic will still reach the group stages of the CL next season.
It also means that Sevco will play in the 3rd qualifying round of the league path to qualify for the CL.
It looks like Sevco will be seeded in both the 3rd qualifying round and the playoffs.
It also means that Sevco will be guaranteed at least the Europa League group stages next season and I think Hearts will be guaranteed at least the Conference League group stages next season.


3.) 02 May 2022 19:42:58
Somebody was worried if they won the EL then we would have to play qualifiers even if we won the league. I thought it was yourself mate but it's not really important, the good news is we're back in the big time!


4.) 02 May 2022 20:32:05
I remember it Kev but I was agreeing with you.


5.) 02 May 2022 20:58:26
BB - the really great thing is also that the Russian coefficient will be ripped to shreds next year. As they are one of our closest rivals for an automatic CL spot then it really is a Christmas and New Year rolled into one for Scottish teams. It is something we could profit from for the next 5 years to come.


6.) 02 May 2022 22:04:35
StubbsiesHorse.
Scotland were in 11th place from last year’s association coefficient but we had already overtaken Russia this season.
It’s a shame that Scotland will benefit from this terrible war because Ukraine are also just below Scotland along with Serbia, I think.
But your right Stubbsie, Scotland could benefit for a number of years.


 

 

30 Apr 2022 10:00:25
Looking forward to tomorrow folks. Lots of decisions for the manager with players returning. I'd go with:

Hart
Ralston CCV Starfelt Taylor
McGregor O'Riley
Jota Rogic Maeda
Giakoumakis

That still leaves Turnbull, Hatate, Abada and Kyogo to come off the bench.

Kevbhoy

1.) 30 Apr 2022 10:28:17
Bitton is back training and he could make the bench.
I would’ve played a fully fit Bitton in our midfield tomorrow because he was badly missed in the Semi Final.


2.) 30 Apr 2022 10:30:39
Close enough kev bhoy.
I thought we missed bitton. In the semi.
Kyogo for maeda.
Then put maeda on run then ragged.
But you know this game is always unpredictable.
In the semi we missed to many sitters rangers scored that was it.


3.) 30 Apr 2022 10:52:29
Oriley and rogic too light Weight to play against them, Bitton is a good shout but I think it will be hatate or turnbull to start.

{Ed007's Note - I wouldn't say Wee Orally is lightweight, Mally. I think he has a decent bit of dig about him and Rogic certainly didn't look too lightweight against them at Ibrox when he was pretty much unplayable, especially in the first half.
If you don't let them get near you the physical side of it doesn't come into it.}


4.) 30 Apr 2022 11:09:44
@buzzbomb
Very similar tactics you and me. Very similar post.
Great minds and all that.
Bitton has the dig we missed in the semi.
We missed his presence he is also mainly the only one who tries to pass to our forward line with we chips etc fro. center midfield.
Some thing I wish calmac would do more of rather than side to side. Not being negative here troops just we go to the when sometime the simple killer pass is right in front of you as our 3 front men are always ready.


5.) 30 Apr 2022 11:20:54
Unlike the Semi Final, I’m expecting our substitutions to make an impact on Sunday.
If O’Riley/ Rogic or Kyogo/ Giakoumakis come off the bench along with Turnbull and possibly Bitton and Abada Etc, it will be better than McCarthy, Soro and young Ben Doak that came off the bench in our 3-0 win in February.
I don’t see Celtic taking their foot of the gas this time because we will have the players to come off the bench to seriously hurt them and finish the job off with ease.
I’m convinced it will be another easy home victory for Champions elect Celtic.


6.) 30 Apr 2022 11:26:44
I agree with big GG to start with we need his height and physicality
In second half bring on Kyogo for his speed and alertness and bring Biton on to strengthen midfield.


7.) 30 Apr 2022 11:43:32
GG and Biton were outstanding at Sevco, the only problem with Biton is getting booked or sent off. The two of them were sorely missed in the semi.

{Ed007's Note - McGregor has the same amount of yellow cards as Bitton (CCV is one behind) and is a stick on to be booked again. Nobody ever comments on the amount of times McGregor is walking that yellow/red tightrope that people use to have a "pop" at Bitton.}


8.) 30 Apr 2022 12:49:48
Nir just stands out because he’s had his marching orders against them. Although he was played out of position.

{Ed007's Note - It's one of the reasons I don't like McGregor playing in that deeper position, his tackling is very poor and usually ends up in a foul at least. I'm not knock McGregor btw I just prefer him playing in a more advanced role where he is more effective.}


9.) 30 Apr 2022 12:51:33
Take your point ed, just the semi final we hit bullied a bit, but uts celtic Park so maybe no a bad shout.

{Ed007's Note - ?

He updated his Instagram profile to say he was a Man City player the other day so could well be something in that. How would a Man City purchase work if Lommel own a % and CFG own a % of the player and the buying and selling parties are both part of CFG? Mind-boggling.

Turnbull doesn't have the engine or pace of guys like Maeda or Kyogo but his quality is there for all to see. I find it strange that some people who question his suitability for Ange's style were more than happy that Rogic could fit into the team when he's arguably less mobile.

No mate, not unless there was a couple of million in loan fees. I've seen it roughly broken down as follows:

Kyogo - £4.5M
Starfelt - £4M
Hart - £1M
JJ - £2M
Abada - £3.5M
Hatate - £1.5M
Guchi - £1M
O'Riley - £1.5M
Maeda - £2M
GG - £3M

Like I said, that's IF the above are reasonably accurate, but who knows? Could also be looking at a wee bit more with guys like Uroghide, Kenny etc.
