"We'll probably see a lot of movement over the weekend" was the quote from NL the other night. It's been a bit too quiet for my liking today but I'm still holding out hope that we'll get one or two deals done.

Kevbhoy

Kevbhoy i like your faith / hope but can't see quality at this stage come in and its quality we need but never say never its midnght deadline morra so let's wait and see.


2.) 04 Oct 2020 09:31:31
Apparently, Aiden McGeady and Beram Kayal are keen to return.


3.) 04 Oct 2020 10:54:42
Bring them home I say! As long as they bring Izzy with them 😂.


4.) 04 Oct 2020 12:16:49
There won't be any deals.

That's the Slovan Bratislava president urging us not to miss out on Sporar yet again. If there's so much interest from so many clubs why is he so desperate for us to put a bid in? It's not like Sporting Lisbon and Al Gharafa don't have plenty of cash to chuck about.

Kevbhoy

1.) 07 Jan 2020 17:24:04
I'm not sure if they're desperate for us to put a bid in mate he was maybe just saying he's surprised we haven't followed up after holding talks 2 weeks ago, it seems as if the guy is just mentioning teams so they can ask for a bigger price.

Got to be sceltic of the Slovakian league as bayo scored 18 goals before January last season but hasn't really done anything since he came here, but then again this guy sporar is scoring goals in the Europa league and seems far more accomplished.

Time will tell kev if we go for him but judging by our past transfer activity we will probably miss out on him and go down the loan route during the last week of the window.


2.) 07 Jan 2020 17:35:17
If what he says is true and we've held talks and then not followed it up two weeks later then to me that looks like he's probably not our first choice and that his club are trying to get us back interested by going on about all these teams chasing him so that we rush into a bid.


3.) 08 Jan 2020 01:54:00
100% mate, if we wanted him that badly after holding talks then I'm sure he would be close to being a celtic player by now but I reckon we've got a list of targets and are playing the waiting game before jumping straight in.

The situation with this Brazilian defender is very strange. He's trying to get his contract torn up over unpaid wages but the courts have said no. If he fails then he's valued anywhere from £3-5 million even though he's 23 and hasn't reached 70 professional games.

Kevbhoy

1.) 28 Dec 2019 12:45:08
I still get shivers down my spine when l think of the last CB we got from Brazil! Bad flashbacks! RAFAEL SCHEIDT worst ever.


2.) 28 Dec 2019 12:57:34
I keep thinking the same when I read about this guy Ter.


3.) 28 Dec 2019 13:39:25
It’s no for me lads! Brazilian centre backs and Scottish football are a recipe for disaster! Add all the baggage into it and I wouldn’t touch it with a barge pole!


4.) 28 Dec 2019 14:46:55
He was part of a Cruzeiro team that was relegated for the first time in their history.
There is now only 3 clubs in Brazilian football that have never been relegated.
I remember we played Cruzeiro in our Centenary match and beat them 4-2.
It was quite a dirty game for a friendly. I think they got a player sent off.


5.) 28 Dec 2019 15:53:31
It all seems a bit messy from the off. How is it we can even sign him? I thought players from Brazil had to be regular internationalists to get a work permit?


6.) 28 Dec 2019 17:21:24
Plenty of time jt couple of conmancaf cup games and call me Raphael he'll be over on the next boat to rock our world!


7.) 28 Dec 2019 21:07:26
He wouldn't get a work permit without an appeal. Most appeals go through tho.

We've been linked with Giannis Bouzoukis from Panathinaikos in the press today. Normally it's just a name drop but the report I saw mentioned that Nick Hammond is particularly keen on him. Who knows? Attacking midfielder so a replacement for Tam perhaps?

Kevbhoy

1.) 17 Dec 2019 22:10:16
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.


2.) 17 Dec 2019 22:56:43
We need browns replacement in sharpish say what you want there is bargains to be had Jeremy frimpong 300 000 grand . Oh my days what a bargain to be honest the Nicky Hammond seems to be a real snip but time will tell i guess .


3.) 18 Dec 2019 06:58:12
Was frimpong not a develoment fee.


4.) 18 Dec 2019 12:18:17
Lenny is going to ship Sinky out and bring James Mc Clean in on loan for the rest of the season.


5.) 18 Dec 2019 13:15:36
Not entirely certain that McLean is any better than sinclair to be fair.


6.) 18 Dec 2019 13:42:47
Sinclair gave us three seasons of 60 goals and a few assists. Morgan and Johnston can only dream of this, Elyannouusi is only here temp.
James McLean will never match up to those stats either, so we really need to go after like-for-like as well as another striker.
Although we are two points clear at the moment, it's paramount that we continue winning and with added firepower - winning convincingly.


7.) 18 Dec 2019 13:44:49
Mcclean isn't good enough for us.


8.) 18 Dec 2019 14:50:21
Would love to bring Wanyama back but if it does happen it's likely to be a short term loan. We need to identify Brown's long term replacement. If that turns out to be McGregor then we need to get his in. Would be happy to see Rogic go but still feel Ntcham can offer something.


9.) 18 Dec 2019 17:13:50
Better off with lex McLean, older posters will know who he is.


10.) 18 Dec 2019 17:34:31
I reckon Browns replacement could be Christie. Brown played more advanced in his early days and RC has same appetite and engine and could easily follow browns path to midfield general. I think there is a better chance of holding on to him since he was from ICT and a bit of a late ish developer into our team. He can also put himself about.

I didn't manage to catch all of the game yesterday but from what I did see it's more of the same defensively. What concerns me more than anything are the Lennon soundbites. I think they're stuck on repeat. "We'll improve" "We'll get better" "We lacked urgency". The question has to be when are these issues going to get sorted and how? I see he even dipped into the archives and had a go at the ref. I know he used to be a hothead to the point of embarrassment at times but he's gone completely the other way now and sits on the bench looking totally beaten. I want him to win the league more than anything but it's looking less likely by the day. It's only 3 points if we win our game in hand, of course, but I wouldn't bet on that the way we're playing. I'm hugely concerned but blindly hopeful.

Kevbhoy

1.) 26 Oct 2020 10:32:46
Agree, this blaming the ref for yesterday is embarrassing Kev. I know Scottish refs are bad but he never got much wrong yesterday apart from not sending McGregor off.


2.) 26 Oct 2020 11:04:24
Our equaliser was in the back if an bad Gollum decision foul to Aberdeen.


3.) 26 Oct 2020 12:06:09
Not sure when Lennon was going after the game either with the ref. How McGregor was not sent off for a series of fouls and then giving away the pen at the end too. Plus as has been said on here our second goal there was a clear push in the back on their player in the build up to our goal. Think he is simple trying to deflect away from himself and the team.


4.) 26 Oct 2020 17:28:39
On the subject of McGregor, the decline in his performances has been alarming. He flourished under BR but this season has looked more like the player he was under RD who a lot of our fans didn't even think would make it at Celtic. He took his goal brilliantly yesterday and has had good moments but if he ticks, we tick and he's been way off it this season. Most notably was against St Johnstone when Brown was left out. He looked completely lost without him at times.


 

 

23 Oct 2020 12:33:31
As much as it's a bit embarrassing to be happy with a 3-1 defeat at home, let's look at the facts: Milan beat the EL runners-up at the weekend and sit top of Serie A so it's no humiliation to lose to them - regardless of the opinion of a mob who beat the mighty Standard Liege. I am not pleased with the result but the performance, particularly in the second half, was miles better than almost anything we've seen all season. If this can be the start of the team playing like we know they can, then I'm positive about the tough run of games we have coming up.

Kevbhoy

1.) 23 Oct 2020 12:40:26
We were a shambles at the back but I agree there were some positives. I wouldn't downplay Sevco's result though. Any win away from home at this level is a great result. They have their tactics spot on when playing in Europe.


2.) 23 Oct 2020 13:29:38
The G string has had had some fantastic results with the KLAN in Europe as much as it pains me to admit it nor do I care much other than taking from it an awareness that we have a challenge on our hands. Their second goal will be watched and spoken about for years it was a classic. The park was in some nick though and stopped the football team playing but was still some result. We are more than capable of rising to that challenge IF the manager can sort us out. The operative word being IF. A wee word with a big question mark.


 

 

18 Oct 2020 23:57:06
I was very surprised at the Lennon Poll earlier. When I voted, there was about 80% didn't believe he could turn things around and deliver the 10. We've been terrible practically all season and it's been painful to watch but last season we played some brilliant stuff and were absolutely ruthless at times. I think we can get back to that but it needs to start now. Aberdeen is a must win, for psychological reasons more than anything, and should be the perfect platform for the players to finally show that they're up to the challenge. I've not given up yet, not by a long shot. HWG10IAR.

Kevbhoy

1.) 19 Oct 2020 06:51:34
Well said Kev.
A SFA cup makes it 4 trebles and the 10 is also a no brainer for me. It is the time to rally the troops not divide. No comments about the manager needed, enough already said. Its the Club and supporters against the rest, and the manager and players are an integral part of that, same as us supporters.
Onwards and Upwards to the 10.


2.) 19 Oct 2020 06:59:19
Playing well last season means nothing and the most sensible thing Lennon has said lately is we can't live off the past.


3.) 19 Oct 2020 07:38:05
I can’t say the poll surprised me Kev, a poll like that goes up right after yet another diabolical performance in that fixture, that’s the last 3 games at least against that mob we’ve been a shambles, outplayed, outfought, no passion, nothing. Yes we were missing a few players, would that have made a difference? I’d like to have thought so, but we all believe we’ve the best squad in the country, yet the team available produce that? Then lennon talks after the game about his substitutions not having an impact in the game? We were rotten right up till his subs at already 2-0 down, what was he expecting? You’ve then got mcgregor coming out again moaning about fans missing. is that not the same issue for most clubs in Britain? Those players on Saturday seem to forget 50 odd thousand fans have bought season tickets again this year, not getting into the games and that’s the best they can produce against our biggest rivals? We can put the blinkers on and dress it up again if we like, bottom line is our performances this season so far are average at best, and this notion that because we’ve won every trophy going the past 3/ 4 seasons will automatically guarantee this 10th title then I’m sorry, I’m not buying into that. On current form Celtic have real title challenge on their hands make no mistake about it.


4.) 19 Oct 2020 07:53:13
There is no title challange if We don't improve now. Make no mistake about this rangers will win the league unless we either improve or sack lennon. The board have backed lennon to the hilt so he to get the team firing on all cylinders or leave.


5.) 19 Oct 2020 09:47:02
@liamlennon - I understand what you're saying but I don't agree that it counts for nothing. This squad has shown that they can play stylish, championship-winning football under Lennon but it's up to him to recapture that, and quick.

@garryc - Regardless of how fresh the wounds were, I find it incredible that so many had essentially conceded the biggest league race in our history in mid-October due to a 1 point gap.

I'm not saying I'm happy with how things are going or how the team has clearly stopped progressing under Lennon but Lawwell won't sack him. Especially not after offering him the job in the showers and all the stuff about not looking at any other CVs. We can't vote with our feet and we can't make our voices heard from the stands this season so we just need to hope things turn around before it's too late.


6.) 19 Oct 2020 10:23:54
There has been something very wrong for weeks with no comparison to last season as so many factors and circumstances have changed.
The lockdown came when we were at the crest of a wave of form; then there was the long delay and uncertainty when we could resume, with training methods and preparation restricted and shrouded in ultra-safe precautions, fear and uncertainty.
An extended transfer window added to the question of players futures at the club and the realization that FF was not returning for another season; meanwhile we were rebuilding a defense and having to play qualifiers behind closed doors.

A shambolic two weeks in August saw us wobble at Killie, shockingly exit (yet again) the CL amidst indiscipline and severe punishment over Bolingoli's actions that disrupted our momentum, just as much as two International breaks that resulted in several players being put at risk and declared absent from duty.
After a CL exit 'stewards enquiry' it was disclosed by a beleaguered manager that certain players were unhappy at the club and wanted away - then within 24 hours the statement was retracted amid doubt and concerns of the attitude and commitment required.
The loss of Damien Duff has to be mentioned as I feel it has made a difficult situation even worse and has added to the negativity.

To their credit the team went on to win 7 SPL games running to go 2nd by a point - even though we were still struggling to find our best form and performances and some team selections and substitutions have been continually questioned along the way.
That takes us up to the No-Show on Saturday and the aftershock.
The manager has made blunders and that's no mistake, but there are several players who are not giving 100% and that's even worse!

I'm sure some of the above factors have put us where we are today
The club will not replace NL at this stage of the season; but if the manager and team don't snap out of it right now, I think there will be a few heading for the exit door in the new year.


7.) 19 Oct 2020 10:25:59
I’ve kept quiet since the game on Saturday and let the rage subside! Not totally gone but getting there lol. I’ll be brutally honest and say how I felt after the game. lennon for me has lost the players! That was one of the most pathetic showing in a Glasgow derby I’ve witnessed! Forget the players missing and let’s concentrate on the players who were there for a minute! That was gutless clueless and quite frankly embarrassing to watch! Only young welsh and Laxalt can escape criticism! That’s 2 games in a row at home against them, they’ve scored 4 and could have been more, we’ve scored 1 and even that shouldn’t have stood! 90 minutes without a single shot at goal! Let that sink in for a minute, no shots at all at home in a Glasgow derby! Absolutely horrendous! And for those who championed ntcham being this great footballer and should start every week, I would love to know your opinion! Guys an absolute disgrace and wouldn’t wear the Celtic tap again if a had my way! There is massive black cloud hanging over us right now, in the most important season in years, maybe ever! The boli situation, slaughter players and accuse them of wanting to leave,2 days later back track on it, bitton chooses to play with his country behind mangers back and comes back with C.V., leaks in the dressing room! Shambolic is being kind! In my opinion the manager should walk now! But if we don’t get a result on Sunday at Pittodrie then even his biggest supporters have got to say enough is enough!


8.) 19 Oct 2020 11:51:34
people are saying how did we get this bad when we were that good last season the thing is we have went back the way when the rangers have progressed, they are getting investment it doesn't matter if they turn it into shares or whatever they are starting to turn their bad time into a much better place and this is showing in the attitude of their team and fans, meanwhile we are all over the place and the only way to sort it is to have the top brass make the tough calls and get rid of anyone that's not fit for the job they're paid to do.


9.) 19 Oct 2020 12:48:18
Christ that would lead to a very trimmed squad and staff
Let's hope NL accepts defeat in the 3 5 2 system and cracks on with 4 3 3 instead

Barkas GK
Frimpong RB / El Hamed
Duffy CB
Julien CB
Laxalt LB
Ajer CDM
Cal Mac CM
Christie CM
Griffiths AML
Edouard CF
Forrest AMR

Keep the team playing attacking football and we will blow teams away
Turnbull is worth getting on the pitch for 20 minutes at a time and play domestic cups
Same with Ajeti and young Welsh
This season isn't over, it just simply hasn't started and to be fair we've picked up plenty domestic points that things can turn around easily when the team is fit and available
Looking forward to MJ coming back, People see him as light weight but think he has bags of quality and hopefully he comes back hungrier than ever.
Sell ntcham
Loan polish paddy
Give Taylor domestic Cup games
Nir Bitton can cover at the back and play domestic cup games
Soro to again to get game time or go on loan
Brown to cover Ajer and get the replacement bought in January

I'm not interested one bit in uefa Cup, not this season, the sooner Thursday is out the road the better and let's focus on scalping Aberdeen and growing the confidence.


10.) 19 Oct 2020 13:24:59
Kevbhoy, I don’t think that poll is saying Celtic won’t win the league this year, what for me it does is show that a lot of fans have no faith in lennon and his tactics/ selections etc. Lennons biggest problem is himself. He continues to tinker formation tinker selections etc pick players that clearly aren’t cutting it ie ntcham. that guy is an imposter in a jersey, he isn’t even flattering to deceive now, his performances are rotten yet he gets picked ahead of say a turnbull, soro, rogic etc. Another thing that he does himself no favours with is playing guys out of position, and I’m not just talking about Saturday, it’s a regular feature with lennon and fans are sick of it now. That game on Saturday was like putting 11 players together that had never met before, passing all over the place, no structure, nothing and the biggest point for me is that this is now at least the last 3 games against them. that cannot continue mate.


11.) 19 Oct 2020 18:45:44
The poll asked do you think we'll win the league and it's still a resounding no tbf Garry.


 

 

17 Oct 2020 14:56:39
Let's get it straight. We can all accept defeat if it comes from a team being better on the day. It's football and we can't expect to win all the time. But the attitude and complete lack of ideas or urgency from our players today was absolutely unforgivable. After the second goal went in each one of us knew there was no way back and the players showed that they felt the same. We had plenty of the ball etc but that's because they were happy for us to have it because we posed absolutely no threat. Really embarrassed by this one.

Kevbhoy

1.) 17 Oct 2020 16:39:19
Spot on, a shambles.


2.) 17 Oct 2020 17:06:08
Agree Kev it wasn't like the team was played off the park, we couldn't even pass the ball 20 yards without giving it away or passing it out of play it was awful from us. We made them look good and they scored with virtually their only 2 chances, one Barkas should've saved the other was rather fortunate. Morelos was allowed to get away with his usual tricks all game until he was booked before being subbed. The performance levels have been shocking for a while now and it was only a matter of time before someone took advantage of that. Hopefully this have the same knock on effect as December but I'm not optimistic something doesn't seem right as the team has yet to click and find top gear once this season.


3.) 17 Oct 2020 17:14:41
But why is that kev?


 

 

13 Oct 2020 16:13:39
It's starting to look like Ajer will probably need to fill in at RB with Jullien and Duffy in the middle of a 4. I think Frimpong gets away with his lack of defensive ability against most teams domestically but Barisic is their biggest threat and we need to try and nullify that. Frimpong at RWB is dangerous imo. I'd be throwing Rogic in as well. Based on absolutely nothing but taking a fancy to the notion.

Kevbhoy

1.) 13 Oct 2020 18:31:02
Rogic has guile and poise
His record against them is decent
Why not?
Worry about his mobility but they re hardly raoid themselves.


2.) 13 Oct 2020 20:49:16
Kev I forgot Ajer could play there good shout.


3.) 13 Oct 2020 21:08:18
How does rarely playing and even more rarely playing well in the Glasgow derby make his record good? If Rogic starts it would weaken the team as far as I’m concerned, made of glass and a $hiteb@g into the bargain. He’s at the very most a sub with 15-20 mins to go when we need someone who can produce something from nothing, problem is he does it so rarely that it’s not worth even a place on the bench.


4.) 13 Oct 2020 22:15:28
A $hiteb@g, shocking statement. rogic has scored 4 against them the last few seasons apart from eddy prob the most in squad. hasn't played much recently but if he starts on sat I don't think he will be rubbishtin himself.


5.) 13 Oct 2020 22:28:44
I think we should be concentrating on what we are capable of doing to them. If we grab the game by the scruff of the neck and win the midfield battle, then Barasic and Tavernier will spend the majority of their time defending which neither are particularly good at.

I'd go with Soro in the midfield as well. We've obviously not seen much of him in a Celtic jersey but from the videos we saw it looked like his main strength was winning the ball, breaking up attacks and turning over the play to the forwards. We need Brown to do well on Sunday away at Pittodrie and if he's up against the boy Tonali (The second coming of Pirlo) then he could be in for a tough, tough night.
