The news of Celtic's interest in Uğurcan Çakır as a goalkeeper is indeed intriguing, especially considering its unusual presence in the media. While transfer stories are not uncommon, this one stands out due to its detailed account of our CEO's direct involvement, including a reported email to Trabzonspor with a specific bid and requests to engage with the player and his agent.

Such public disclosure of our club's negotiation tactics is unprecedented in my experience supporting Celtic. It's noteworthy that Brendan's desire for a video call with the player is mentioned, suggesting a proactive approach to secure the deal.

Speculatively, it seems the story may have originated from our CEO, perhaps as a strategic move to demonstrate transparency and early action, possibly in response to past fan criticisms of transfer dealings.

Let's hope he's the real deal can't afford another barkas.


2.) 08 Apr 2024 21:12:22
I read tonight they want 12.5 million so we can put that to bed.


3.) 10 Apr 2024 12:02:29
What clubs want and what clubs get is a totally different matter. I don't know much about the guy . But going on reports from some of his clubs fans they wouldn't be very disappointed to see the back of him .

Rumour online that Sevco will give in and give us 2750 tickets at snake mountain.

Weejoe

1.) 13 Feb 2024 17:16:16
Hope they tell them to ram them, 8k or forget it, kick the Onion Bears out the Broomloan.


2.) 14 Feb 2024 07:38:36
Any uplift like this to match the euro allocation is a real step forward and undoubted admit to error from rangers, the 8k won’t happen again in my view, all I care about is Celtic stick to our guns and give them nothing until they put measures in place at ibrox first as we know this is there doing, does anyone else think they will try and not give us the allocation for next game seeing as how close the league is and will delay until next season.


3.) 14 Feb 2024 09:20:14
Tell them to ram it! They started this Shiite coz their fans got never got invited to our parties in their house. Already proved this hasn’t stopped us winning there, so, back to what it was or feck off!


4.) 14 Feb 2024 12:18:39
I'm happy with never allowing them back in.


5.) 14 Feb 2024 13:13:40
I'm ok with the status quo. Our fans aren't safe in that cesspit of anti catholicism plus Paradise with 60k Celtic supporters for that game is Paradise for me.


6.) 14 Feb 2024 17:21:56
Celtic have showed we can pick points up at Ibrox without our fans.
Sevco have also showed they fail to pick points up at Celtic Park without their fans.


7.) 15 Feb 2024 16:42:05
I agree Buzz Bomb, Rangers2012 started cutting our allocation as there fans couldn’t stand Celtic fans celebrating as we were winning far too often for them . Rangers2012 admitted that Ibrox wasn’t a safe place. for an ex Celtic player working in the media . If they couldn’t protect C Sutton, how could they protect a couple of thousand fans . Celtic still pick up good results in meaningful Ibrox games whilst Rangers2012 cannot get results at Celtic Pk .
Celtic club prefer no Rangers fans as Police can’t or won’t prevent Sevco fans from damaging Celtic Pk . In fact they can’t even prevent Police from wrecking toilets.


8.) 16 Feb 2024 04:14:43
All due respect lads doesn't matter if we pick up points there if we keep dropping silly points elsewhere as we have seen recently.

Tete is apparently moving from shaqtar. He is the type of player I would like us to sign.

Young, talented, experienced and already established in the first team. This means they have a good chance to hit the ground running and can still move on for a good profit in 2-3 years time.

Weejoe

1.) 12 Jul 2023 12:48:27
Is there anyone you'd compare him to because I genuinely can't remember ever seeing him play.


2.) 12 Jul 2023 13:22:45
He reminds me of Scott Sinclair but is better and plays on the opposite wing.

He is a better dribbler and can go on the outside or cut infield. He is also bigger and more powerful. Just looks like a complete player.


3.) 12 Jul 2023 16:11:18
So nothing like Scot Sinclair then ?.


4.) 12 Jul 2023 17:18:31
He is like Scott Sinclair, in that he is very direct and scores a lot of goals cutting inside.


 

 

06 Jul 2023 11:06:42
Reports coming out that Connor hazard is off to Plymouth for a 6 figure fee.

Hopefully, that is us starting to trim the squad as there is a fair bit of deadwood.

I would hope to aim for a squad of 26. That would give us 2 players for every position and 1 spare GK, midfielder, defender and striker and then use our B team if we get really unfortunate with injuries.

This would reduce wage bill and give young players more opportunity to get in and about the 1st team. Remember, this is how Tierney got his chance, as all our left backs were injured.

Weejoe

1.) 06 Jul 2023 12:46:26
Would terminate ajetis contract if we can't get a fee and same with barkas. cheers lenny.

{Ed007's Note - Barkas has already been released.}


2.) 06 Jul 2023 13:59:46
Didn't know that mate. didc we get anything for him ed.

{Ed007's Note - No mate, Celtic agreed to release him from the last year of his contract, Barkas and his agent hope it will help allow Utrecht to afford to sign him.}


3.) 06 Jul 2023 14:46:39
Thanks Ed ??.

Celtics trading model is so good we managed to get the same money for Barkas as they got for Morelos and Kent. ???.

Why can't the board make an all standing section behind the goals for the ultras?

It would be a massive boost for the atmosphere and buy them some good will from the fans.

For me it is a no brainer.

Weejoe

1.) 15 Jun 2024 11:59:37
What if you'd sat in the same seat for 30 years and then get asked to move. playing devils advocate but it would be amazing.


2.) 15 Jun 2024 14:04:36
I'm sure you could incentivise the moves if need be. If the fan is adamant they don't want to move, let them stay and put their seat down for them during the matches.


3.) 15 Jun 2024 14:11:25
Would definitely help improve the dreadful atmosphere but would be difficult as fans wouldn't want to move seats etc.


4.) 15 Jun 2024 15:07:47
Let them keep their seat, it will just be surrounded by people standing.


5.) 15 Jun 2024 16:04:15
Weejoe,

the Celtic board, as far as I'm aware, have applied for permission to Glasgow City Council for this, therefore it's not the boards decision to make.

☘️ ? ☘️.


6.) 15 Jun 2024 18:01:58
This would never work, I currently sit in the Jock Stein bottom tier just in front of the hospitality seats, it's a great seat, no one in their right mind would move to a lesser seat say in the Lisbon Lions 3 rows from the front. Everyone in the Jock Stein were left flyers in their seat at a game last season and everyone around just laughed when they read the proposal. The hospitality at the back of the Jock Stein would have to go if this was to go ahead.
The only way I can see anything changing is by extending the current section further into the Lisbon Lions stand.


7.) 15 Jun 2024 18:05:40
work with a guy who is a season book holder sat there since new stadium was built and says he won't be giving his seat up.

{Ed007's Note - It's not HIS seat though, it's Celtic's seat and if the Club want to move people then they can and there's nothing anyone can do to stop them.
Man Utd have told a number of season ticket holders that they will be moved for next season to accommodate their academy & women players (some reports say players families/friends will be in there too) to make sure they have prime seats to watch the match to help their development and understanding of the game.}


8.) 15 Jun 2024 18:10:44
Good reply Stevie. ?.


9.) 15 Jun 2024 19:05:21
@pedro cheers for that info. Do you know what section they have applied for standing?

To others that said they won't move, i already pointed out that they should be allowed to keep their seat if they wish. They just need to accept that while they may be seated, everyone around them will be standing.

{Ed007's Note - They're planning in giving the BHOYS group a standing section diagonally across from the GB, in the SW corner of the JS stand.}


10.) 15 Jun 2024 19:26:37
I saw that ed but I don't think it will make difference to the atmosphere. It will also be less visually impressive.

{Ed007's Note - It'll give the social media section Celtic support another group to sit and take pics/videos of instead of watching the game or supporting the team.
With the BHOYS down nearer pitch-side it might encourage more people around them to get involved in singing etc, acoustically I think it will help with the atmosphere, if you're in the NC/GB section it's hard to hear what the BHOYS are singing stuck away up in the back of beyond.}


11.) 15 Jun 2024 19:41:56
If they can sort all the absent seat holders I'll be happy to fill them. That'd sort the atmosphere some if the bit wasn't 1/ 3 empty on a sell out.


12.) 15 Jun 2024 20:09:56
Dc? The dreadful atmosphere? At its worst its still the most bouncing stadium in Britain. Are you wanting a mariachi band and fireworks every game?


13.) 15 Jun 2024 21:01:29
Gerry come on the atmosphere is poor 95% of the time. Can hear a pin drop on occasions. A lot of our fans like to claim we are the best in the world but we are far from it in terms Of atmosphere.
There are plenty of stadiums in Britain that are far more bouncing than ours.


14.) 15 Jun 2024 21:14:52
Ed hit the nail on the head earlier. As much as there is nostalgia attached to "your" seat etc. The seat belongs to the club and they're under no obligation to offer it to you next season whether you've sat there for 1 year or 40 years.

{Ed007's Note - And let's be honest, if it came to a choice of backing guys that will lose their seats or a massive standing section the majority of the support will go with the latter, the people in those seats would either need to move or give up on a ST altogether.}


15.) 15 Jun 2024 21:30:25
Dc,
I was going to reply earlier to you saying that the atmosphere is poor.
But I need to reply to your 2nd comment.

I put it down to where you’re sitting.

Personally I think the atmosphere at Celtic Park is brilliant with the Green Brigade.

When I go, I sit behind the goals in the LL stand and the atmosphere is second to none.

Maybe your up in the clouds in the Jock Stein Stand.

How can you hear a pin drop when Celtic fans are singing for the FULL 90 minutes plus?

{Ed007's Note - But the majority of the atmosphere is provided by the GB, Buzz - hopefully the new BHOYS section will help get them heard better acoustically - far too many fans are too busy sitting watching/videoing and taking pics of the GB they're not even watching the game and they're definitely not singing/chanting to support the team.
Far too many Celtic fans turn up at Celtic Park expecting the GB to entertain them, as if it's all part of the show. If you're videoing YNWA at CP you aren't giving the team your full support, your sole intention should be belting that out as loud as you can.}


16.) 15 Jun 2024 21:50:26
Yes buzz jock stein stand. The looks you get sometimes when you try to start a song etc. Take away the green brigade and there's nothing. Couple hundred fans in a 60 thousand seater stadium ain't a great atmosphere at all. I actually think our away support is much better than the home support. Only managed 3 away games last season but was amazing in comparison.

{Ed007's Note - I totally agree with you on this DC, this and the same empty seats week in week out does my nut in.}


17.) 16 Jun 2024 01:08:30
You only have to go back to earlier last season when the GB had been emptied, the atmosphere was non-existent. And I seem to remember almost everyone on here wishing for them to be let back in as it was harming the teams performance and ability to win games.

For the record, Celtic already got someone for recruitment. We hired Mark Cooper.

Weejoe

Whats his background WJ a did hear myself that we got sum1 in.


2.) 14 Jun 2024 17:29:32
Mark Cooper has been appointed to a full time Recruitment position with Celtic but it isn’t clear that he is Head of Recruitment .


3.) 14 Jun 2024 18:19:08
Des is right, as it isn't clear what his job title is. It is also weird that our club did not make an official announcement (that I have noticed)

From the little I have read, he is a scout whose region of expertise is the Americas.


 

 

09 Jun 2024 17:31:15
Can we get a poll ed.

What would you prefer?

A) Scotland winning the Euros or world cup.

B) Your club winning the Champions League. (For the lurkers I didn't put Celtic)

Weejoe

{Ed033's Note -


Cup Poll


1.) 09 Jun 2024 20:05:27
I'd rather celtic beat dundee 1-0 in the worse game you've ever seen than see Scotland winning a trophy never mind the champions league.


2.) 09 Jun 2024 20:31:48
I went with Scotland.


3.) 09 Jun 2024 23:32:35
Celtic for sure. Internationals should only be players from the country they were born in. its not like that now.

{Ed007's Note - Now? What about Richard Gough, Shaun Maloney and the Oldham born, cricket playing Flying Pig?


4.) 10 Jun 2024 01:06:45
Of course but it’s got ridiculous Aidan McGeady is Scottish. I didn’t want to mention Gough cos he was always injured in the smaller Scotland games and fit for Rangers on the Saturday. He just liked playing in the big affairs and some lesser player had to take his place and then get the boot when he decided he was fit. Andy Roxburgh called him out then embarrassingly backed down. He should have stuck to his guns. He started calling him Richard this and Richard that and Gough looked at him with contempt. It was cringeworthy.


5.) 10 Jun 2024 23:55:28
Many of us older Celtic fans remember how difficult bit has been for Celtic players to get picked to play for Scotland . The number of caps our Lisbon Lions got between the whole team, was ridiculously low . Far inferior Rangers players were picked ahead of Celtic players game after game . Of course in the 60’s and 70’s the SFA Board didn’t trust their Manager to pick team and they had a selection panel to pick the team . So effective were they at their job Kenny D’s international career was paused so that he would beat a Rangers player record of consecutive starts without missing a game . It was only wise and sensible for A Mc Geady family or advisors to opt for Ireland as he had an opportunity of playing. for them. and was sure to be picked to play on merit.

Question for ed. What do you prefer talking about Scotland or talking about transfers? ?.

Weejoe

{Ed007's Note - That's like asking what nut you want kicked! ?

{Ed007's Note - ???


2.) 07 Jun 2024 21:21:17
Radio Clyde mentioned last night that Craig Gordon was going to be dropped from the final squad but I noticed he’s playing tonight.

It wasn’t confirmed.
Craig playing tonight must mean the information is incorrect.


3.) 07 Jun 2024 21:42:21
I promise to not talk about Scotland but can't say the same for transfers.


4.) 08 Jun 2024 10:37:05
I think Gordon got on as a farewell buzz. Wouldn't be suprised if he doesn't play for Scotland again.


5.) 08 Jun 2024 11:53:53
Ed, coz you do such a great job on the site, I'm going to get you your very own Scotland top ?.

{Ed007's Note - Erm no thanks.... ????


6.) 08 Jun 2024 12:05:38
Comes on and gives a penalty away, throwing the game. Anyway Ed c'mon head or gut? ???.

{Ed007's Note - Head, there's a chance of getting KOd!


 

 

05 Jun 2024 07:57:47
If the reported fee for Bernardo is 3 million + 500k in add-ons. Then I say get him in, he is worth that and has good potential. Some of the things he done last season were top drawer. He just needs to find consistency now.

Weejoe

1.) 05 Jun 2024 09:33:13
My worry is that the Board see him as direct replacement for MOR and the downgrading and profit priority continues. It happened with Jota and Abada last season and for once we need to bring in real quality in key areas and improve - especially in Europe.


2.) 05 Jun 2024 09:50:38
I wouldn't have a problem with Bernardo being O'riley's replacement, I genuinely believe with the same amount to game time he can develop in to a player that is just as effective as O'riley is.
Got to remember that O'riley wasn't the player he is today when he first arrived.


3.) 05 Jun 2024 13:55:25
I don't think he will be a direct replacement for MOR but could be for Hatate.


4.) 05 Jun 2024 14:32:19
Has no one thought that Bernardo is replacing Bernardo in the squad? With the loan finishing we have one CM place to be replaced at this moment in time. If / when MO leaves we will need another.


5.) 05 Jun 2024 14:43:01
How could Bernardo be a direct replacement for MO ‘R or Hatate . As far as I know the only people talking about either leaving are the SMSM and some Celtic fans.


6.) 05 Jun 2024 16:34:07
Des O'Riley is leaving soon. That boy has a serious plan for his future and looks more than ready for the next step.


7.) 05 Jun 2024 08:30:38
Looked at Sanches videos, for 4 million euros he is well worth paying that for. Looks quick, tricky and can finish.

Ed is this one we are really interested in or just media gossip?

{Ed007's Note - I'd hazard a guess that Celtic will be well aware of Alvyn Sanches but considering where the original story originated - The Daily Express - I wouldn't put too much faith in it. There's not even any mention of it in the Swiss press that didn't use the DE as the original source, maybe his agent is trying to drum up interest.}


8.) 05 Jun 2024 20:56:29
Thought that might be the case, cheers Ed ?.

{Ed007's Note - Sanches ticks a lot of the boxes for being a Celtic target so I suppose there is a chance this guy at the DE has stumbled onto something or he's just made it up because he ticks a lot of the boxes for us.}


9.) 06 Jun 2024 16:58:39
Kev . Who has told u that MO’R is leaving soon . Who told u that the boy has a serious plan for the future and looks more than ready for the next step, that doesn’t include Celtic .
I am sure the people who speak of the next step also thought that would include playing for Denmark in the Euros .
I am not saying M O’R won’t leave us this summer, I just have no reason to believe all the talk, as I have seen no direct quotes from those who know.

That was the XI I wanted to start today and we have players on the bench who can come in and make a positive contribution.

With regards to buzzs comment, we have the same number of players on the bench who have scored in this fixture as they have in their starting XI.

Ed if we have not identified the players for the summer, sounded them out and tried to initiate talks then we are due to repeat the previous two windows.

I expect a goal keeper, striker, winger and left back brought in quickly as soon as the window opens.

If the board don't don't do that they are going to be under major pressure for the whole window.

Weejoe

{Ed007's Note - I'm hoping that there are players lined up that don't require any scouting, oven-ready players Brendan Rodgers has identified and then it's up to Michael Nicholson to negotiate.}

It is his hamstring.

If it is a grade 2 or 3 tear, then I can't see him playing again this season. If it is a grade 1 then hopefully be back for Sevco match.
