Someone asked Laxalt when he was streaming Fortnight if he had met Eddie How yet and he said "No no, Tomorrow" found this rather odd as he didn't look like he was on the wind up.

1.) 30 Mar 2021 12:49:14
Probably thought he meant eddy as in edouard.



11 Jan 2021 11:24:22
Alfie Doughty looks like he'll be joining Stoke this window. Yet another transfer we're losing out on. He maybe decided on Stoke as they seemed more keen in signing him by offering him a deal in January instead of a pre contract.

1.) 11 Jan 2021 11:55:44
Yeah and also looking at our club, who in right mind would come here now. Its been happening for a while, why do all good things just up and go, only looking now, you realise that's probably why rodgers left, fed up of lawell the clown acting the big man. Utter shambles.



08 Dec 2020 23:14:41
Reports saying Celtic could listen to offers for Elhamed as his family have all gone back to Isreal and he's here alone. You heard anything Ed?

{Ed007's Note - I didn't think Elhamed's family moved over here and there's always a chance of a player not settling when that happens. Add in his injuries and poor form then it's probably for the best he moves on.}

1.) 09 Dec 2020 16:21:04
Shame as he had a couple of solid performances at the start before the Fenerbace mistake. Ah well; maybe another one bites the dust?
We could well have a brand new team in 2021?

2.) 09 Dec 2020 17:54:02
Hopefully we get the RB issue sorted this time and don't look for a loan.

3.) 10 Dec 2020 16:42:57
Any players we get in January should be loans. This will allow any new manager to completely rebuild the squad in the summer.
The players who want to leave will be gone as hopefully will be the board and PL.
We can start from scratch and begin to rebuild the team into a 10 in a row side.



12 Oct 2020 19:05:26
It's been confirmed Elhameds test has came back positive so he'll have to isolate in Israel. Some run of bad luck for us in the lead up to this person game.

1.) 12 Oct 2020 20:33:34
And the many other games beyond that

Hope he recovers and that there are no adverse lasting impacts.

2.) 12 Oct 2020 21:22:49
Yeah Speedy recovery too both of them. Question if a player gets hurt during international duty the club I am sure gets compensation from the relevant football association? Does that include C.V. also?

3.) 12 Oct 2020 22:50:02
The Milan game is the bigger concern Lubo. Would have liked a full strength team to get off to a good start in that group.

4.) 12 Oct 2020 23:12:06
Dont know, I think the compensation links in to insurances

Not sure about C.V. premiums would be mega.

5.) 13 Oct 2020 02:46:18
I would like to think so as its the national team that put them at risk.

6.) 13 Oct 2020 05:17:52
Bravetart how is the ac game the bigger concern the rangers game has a lot more at stake than a Europa game specially this year Europe is a total irrelevance to me .

7.) 13 Oct 2020 07:35:50
D&P I totally agree. We're going to be lucky to finish 3rd in the group and to me winning the 10 is the most important thing this season. You can see how much it means to the other mob by how they are throwing every penny they can gather at trying to stop us winning 10 it even if it throws them into debt they might not be able to recover from. The Rangers 3rd coming up lol.

8.) 13 Oct 2020 08:01:29
Can’t agree that a game in the EL is bigger than Saturdays game! I would 100 % take a fully fit squad for Saturday over any EL game!

9.) 13 Oct 2020 11:43:58
If players are getting CV playing in internations, should they be playing in Europa league games?

10.) 13 Oct 2020 12:52:09
Players aren't getting C.V. playing in internationals. Given the incubation period is up to two weeks, the players likely contracted the virus 7-14 days prior to testing positive. Given our last game was 04/ 10, its a fair assessment that any of our players who have tested positive between then and the 18th of October caught it in Glasgow.

Any player that catches it on international duty is likely to test positive AFTER they have returned to their clubs.

It would be interesting to know if any St J or Sarajevo players have tested positive. Or indeed any of the Scotland team who were in contact with Elhamed.

11.) 13 Oct 2020 12:58:58
It's only the first derby of the season. It's all just merely bragging rights for me this early in the season. Once Europe sorts itself out we always come back and blow everyone else away. It's not that I don't want us to go out and pump them Saturday as it would be a good psychological blow to them if we are top with a game in hand, but if we don't then it's way too early to be panty wetting.

12.) 13 Oct 2020 13:03:44
And Europa is of some concern as financially it's income we could do with as we are losing millions not having fans in the stadium.

13.) 13 Oct 2020 15:33:22
The game at the weekend is more important than any Euro game what if the season gets suspended like last season and the rangers are top at that point the powers that be would not hesitate in awarding them the title.

{Ed007's Note - Even though "the powers that be" (the SPFL board) lost the vote to give them the power to do that?}

14.) 13 Oct 2020 18:38:05
The team we will put out should still be good enough to compete against Sevco as we always boast about having the best squad but probably not so much with Milan that's the point I was trying to make. Whether people think it's important or not as a fan I hate the maulings we get in Europe. Would be a nice scalp to take even if they aren't as good as they once was.

15.) 13 Oct 2020 18:38:54
Agree though Big D they'll all be screaming for an early finish this season if they're slightly ahead in the league lol.

16.) 13 Oct 2020 20:03:04
Mark 76, internationals is higher risk than European club games


Well if the Celtic bubble flew to milan ( 1 flight ) and played AC who have their own bubble, the risk between that and domestic is 1 flight, and of course the return flight creates issues too

In an international, around 60 players have to fly from all over the world to the pre match camp and then fly to the venue for the match . that's dozens of flights and higher risk

On that basis, internationals are higher risk as the uncontrollables are plentiful.

17.) 13 Oct 2020 21:53:32
You've also got to ask yourself if the airlines are sanitizing their planes well enough to prevent the possibility of the virus lurking anywhere within the plane. You're on a flight between an hour and 10 (? ) so there's a very real danger it could be there, especially as the airline industry is being financially savaged and cost cuts right left and central.

18.) 14 Oct 2020 15:11:13
You don’t want to hammer them bravetart lol every time we play them I want them embarrassed and bossed off the park .

19.) 15 Oct 2020 13:11:05
Where did I say I don't want to hammer them? I've already explained the point I tried to make and you're misreading what I've said clearly.



05 Jul 2020 11:50:32
Celtic being linked with an interest in Rapids 22 year old Dejan Ljubicic. Plays CDM but also been used as a CB too.

New image uploaded to the
Celtic Player Sightings page entitled, New Celtic home kit leaked

1.) 31 Mar 2021 15:45:53
Very similar to this season's but much more clean and crisp with the darker green and without the yellow trim. Reminiscent of the 125 year anniversary kit but with thicker hoops. Thumbs up from me.



26 Feb 2021 11:16:24
Might be out our price range but liked the look of that Abdellah Sima for Slavia. Only 19 and could be a good replacement for Eddy. West Ham are meant to be keen on him though. 19 goals and 5 assists in 28 appearances this season.

1.) 26 Feb 2021 12:45:41
I said yesterday bravetart, I quite like the look of his gaffer as well. He's just papped Mr Rodgers out of Europe which has sealed the deal for me lol.

2.) 26 Feb 2021 15:43:28
@Kevbhoy - to be fair it is not hard to pap a Rodgers team out of Europe.

3.) 26 Feb 2021 15:57:49
Jindrich Trpisovsky has a top record and has yet to make a move outside his home country, we could be very appealing to him and i think he would be a top appointment he's drawing comparisons with Klop.

4.) 26 Feb 2021 16:14:23
Get the Slavia manager in then he can persuade Sima to come. Win win Kevbhoy 😏.

5.) 26 Feb 2021 19:31:20
I've actually done a little bit of digging and it would appear a major stumbling block would be that Trpisovsky speaks little-to-no English. The reason I fancy him, or someone like him, is that he's proven he can do well in Europe while still dominating domestically and on a much smaller budget than our own.

6.) 26 Feb 2021 20:08:57
There are plenty of managers out there that would improve us without breaking the bank financially. We rule most out going down the "Celtic man" route when we would be better getting the best man we can find that's available that will come to the club.



31 Jan 2021 15:08:54
Would anyone on here take Saiss from Wolves? He'll be free in the summer. Think he's only on about £27,000pw and would be an upgrade on Jullien and has plenty of experience. He'll be 31 in March so a 3 year deal could entice him up North. Might be plenty of interest in him Liverpool are rumoured with him this window to help out with their defensive shortage.

1.) 31 Jan 2021 15:54:09
£27,000 a week?, think we need to be looking at some one for a third of that or less, we can't afford to be paying crazy obscene wages any more.

2.) 31 Jan 2021 16:56:06
There are players in our squad currently on more.

3.) 31 Jan 2021 17:07:22
Maybe, but it can't go on.

4.) 31 Jan 2021 17:41:43
There won't be many on more. 27k would put him up alongside the highest earners at the club and he isn't good enough to warrant that.

5.) 31 Jan 2021 17:44:59
No chance we would give that to a 31yr old over 3 yrs when there is no chance of getting a fee for him in the future.

6.) 31 Jan 2021 19:48:20
We're paying half of Duffy's 80k a week. Let that set in. I can't believe that guy has blagged his way through the EPL for so long.

7.) 31 Jan 2021 21:18:52
Are you sure about that Caese? I was nearly sure Duffy made a statement at the start of season that his wages were paid in full by celtic at 40k.

8.) 31 Jan 2021 23:46:18
I never said pay him £27,000pw just mentioned it as it could be within our wage structure. Being over 30 some clubs are reluctant to offer long contracts but maybe a 3 year deal on a bit less due to his age could be doable. Him and Davies on a free would sort out our defense without spending anything substantial.



28 Jan 2021 01:10:03
Hi Ed, have you heard anything on when Forrest is due back? NL said 4 to 6 weeks ages ago and it's been probably been double that. A few weeks ago saying again he isn't a million miles away and he's still not in full training yet.

{Ed007's Note - It looks like there were some complications with Forrest healing after his op. Lennon said in November after Forrest had his op that the best case scenario was he'd be out for 6 to 8 weeks but it could be longer.}

1.) 28 Jan 2021 11:17:25
I hope we get in a couple of players with RB and CB positions i would be looking to strengthen what do you think we need in this window ED007.

{Ed007's Note - If no other players leave a CB and a winger to allow us to change if the game isn't going to plan playing the 4-3-1-2.}

2.) 28 Jan 2021 11:30:59
What about big Jullien? Anybody kno when he’s back?

{Ed007's Note - I'll be surprised if we ever see Jullien in a Celtic strip again - especially if we have a settled CB pairing by the time he is fit.}

3.) 28 Jan 2021 11:56:12
might be lucky to recoup the £7m we spent on him?

{Ed007's Note - Ach we should recoup our money from a team in France or the Pub League.}

4.) 28 Jan 2021 12:10:43
ed007 do you not think there's a chance we could keep Julien or is he another one of these players a good season then thinks he is to good for us.

{Ed007's Note - He wanted to leave last summer and was very vocal about it. The fans directed their ire at Ajer who had done nothing wrong while others got away with bringing their negativity to the squad. Let's face it, Jullien's a bit of a wet wipe and can't handle the physical side of the Scottish game - I'm still not convinced with the "back injury" he had earlier in the season.}

5.) 28 Jan 2021 12:16:45
Frimpong away el Hamed prob away, Duffy away Julien and ajer probs away, Laxalt away. practically a whole new back line needed in the summer. striker to replace Edouard and wingers needed. its rebuild and a half bhoys.

{Ed007's Note - 👍

6.) 28 Jan 2021 12:18:47
Is there more to that Jullien prediction than just footballing matters Ed?

{Ed007's Note - What do you mean, Kev?}

7.) 28 Jan 2021 12:33:54
agree ed. you can see big ajar passion on the field he has been here since Ronny Delia and still not kicked up a fuss to leave. i would rather keep ajar than Julien. do you think we could talk ajar into staying for another season and extending his contract i think he could be our problem to right back

our biggest mistake in the summer was no letting a few of the moaners leave. once they leave and on there big bucks in the pub league or were ever they go they will care nothing about or club and what has been lost this season.

{Ed007's Note - I'd like to think the Club have at least asked players about extending their contracts, even Edouard simply because if you don't ask you'll never know.
Maybe if we get a "box-office" manager in & show some intent in the transfer market some of them might fancy it. Ajer is only coming up on 23 so another year up here might not be too bad a choice for him, he's been in Scotland for 5 years now and I'd guess his girlfriend will be Scottish so he's settled in his private life.}

8.) 28 Jan 2021 13:02:30
Any rumoured names anyone hearing about other than the usual? ED007 again on celtic tv this time Lennon claiming they are after players he said that they were far down the line with a couple could that be they are at a stage where offers are close to being offered. Cause i would like for one day soon celtic announce a player or two as uickly as the Frrimpong deal was reported instead of Celtic making a bid for .

9.) 28 Jan 2021 13:39:51
I was wondering whether he had been making noises that he wanted to move on but you've since provided a bit of the background. I never knew any of that and am quite surprised. I do remember rumours that he was exaggerating his back injury which the club were not best pleased about. Disappointing tbh.

{Ed007's Note - I think he underestimated the Scottish game, he definitely doesn't like playing against big physical strikers.}

10.) 28 Jan 2021 14:37:51
Ben Person signing for Not us going else where oh well can't see us signing anyone.



24 Jan 2021 03:04:50
Stories in papers saying Rafa is taking over Lennon surely this is false information they've been fed?

I would have either to replace the back up strikers if they're moved on but would still expect someone better to replace Eddy.

It was the Fratellis front man who is a massive Celtic fan that supposedly said he seen Howe house hunting the street next to his (The street where Lennon and Gerrard live) . Sounds like made up pish to me. If Howe is holding out until the summer to make his mind up and see if a PL club come calling then we should move on to the next candidate. Favre is available and said he was interested so Celtic should interview him.

Could be his likely choice as captain too if signed. Might make McGregor consider his future if a club comes calling.

He could've had a hattrick yesterday first half was a poor attempt and should've buried it, 2nd half he was denied by a great save and last ditch block.

I'm convinced he would've been the alleged racist towards MM. As oldkilly said he has history with racist comments before. Not a fan of the royals myself but it's only fireworks it may have just been inconveniently timed or meant as a positive. But it's Celtic so it'll be used as a stick to beat us with for days as we have them next in the cup.
