Some Portuguese gentleman stated we have signed barnardo for 4 million euros about 3.5 million pounds suppose to be a done deal.


1.) 06 Jun 2024 13:39:12
I can confirm that I’ve heard that rumour too?.



02 Jun 2024 07:35:33
Any news on the bernardo deal?


1.) 02 Jun 2024 08:47:07
Apparently we are trying to lowball the price. Who knew?

2.) 02 Jun 2024 10:01:56
Why go in high. if we truly want him we'll get him I wouldn't be paying any more than 4 or 5m.

3.) 02 Jun 2024 11:28:40
They have no plans to keep him, he wants to stay here, so why wouldn't we try and get the price down.

Same with Idah but their new Manager will want to assess his squad first.

4.) 02 Jun 2024 11:31:01
I am seriously torn on Bernardo . I think there is a player there but he didn’t exactly stand out for me . If his asking price was half what there asking I would say yes but at the price they want he is a no for me .

5.) 02 Jun 2024 12:30:42
In any negotiations go in low and steady work your way up. Why go in and pay top dollar and potentially over the odds.

6.) 02 Jun 2024 16:31:37
Let's not compare Bernardo to MOR but Instead compare him to hatate who played maybe 2 good games when he returned and is STiLL blowing out his ar** after 65 mins. Maybe controversial but Reo can sometimes be an empty jersey.

7.) 02 Jun 2024 19:48:22
For me hatate was event the best Japanese midfielder ?.

8.) 02 Jun 2024 20:10:40
Scored and set up two v sevco, still v young in terms of game time.

9.) 02 Jun 2024 22:09:38
I have to be honest and say he had a spell around Christmas for 4 or 5 games when he looked a class act but his overall contribution was 6.5/ 10.
It’s the fact that he was 8 and 9 out of 10 during that purple patch that makes me torn as u could not pay £5-6m and he ends up in that form again but if we do pay it and he plays like he did in many other games when he was average the fee may look excessive.
Talk about Sutton on the fence I know it’s just a tricky 1 for me.

10.) 03 Jun 2024 08:39:44
He is worth the fee agreed. My point was if there in a deal for a loan, we accepted that. No way would we agree the deal without knowing what they want. So, to go back after an agreement was made, to me is tacky. We shake on it, that’s the price. If we wanted to get a lower price that shouid have been hammered out and agreed when we signed him. I believe of you agree the option, you honour it. Maybe that notion of keeping your word is old fashioned, but I just think its shoddy and suns our board up to a tee. It seems they agreed to secure a price, he arrived, now the price they agreed is too high? How amateurish is that? He is a player who needs more games. Right now he contributes more than Reo. Our whole midfield was awol for too much of the game. I was calling for him to come on at halftime. He made the difference and won the cup for us. Pay the effin fee you agreed to. Or sack those who agreed it if we weren’t going to pay it.

11.) 03 Jun 2024 13:00:37
We haven’t seen the the loan deal, nor the right to buy add on . Without seeing them we can have no way of knowing whether Celtic are tacky or not .
I am sure the SMSM would like to label us so .

12.) 04 Jun 2024 10:58:28
I didn't think Bernardo's deal had a right to buy in it. If it did have one I think we are bound to pay that if we want to sign him but if there wasn't one then we can negotiate like every transfer we do.

13.) 06 Jun 2024 08:05:52
Well in. The lad is an excellent player and will only get better.



05 May 2024 07:06:10
Is Kyogo leaving at the end of the season. A mate in work said Kyogo said something in the after match press conference is this true or BS. Cheers guys.




23 Jul 2023 21:21:40
Any truth in the Tete rumours that he's signing for us.


1.) 24 Jul 2023 07:34:33
Nobody knows. I hope so, but I read about his wages and this may be the problem. Although if we got him for free maybe it could be done. Might have an impact upon how the other players feel when he trots up on double their wages. Just need to wait and see.

2.) 24 Jul 2023 09:14:18
The players shouldn’t complain. They have no right too. The player comes in for nothing, if we pay him 50k a week then so be it. I doubt it’s anything that players care about, what others in the squad make. I’m sure Ben Summers isn’t annoyed that Ralston makes 10k more than him a year.

3.) 24 Jul 2023 10:38:33
Thought a saw he was England bound.

4.) 24 Jul 2023 12:18:33
I doubt it would cause any player to become resentful, but when it became time to renegotiate the contracts it would serve as a benchmark and precedent for the others. So unless those in charge want to actually shift the ceiling on the salary, it could cause problems down the line. Ideally that would be the plan anyway.

5.) 24 Jul 2023 16:06:01
Read a report last night that he was on £21k a week. That's not a problem for us.

6.) 25 Jul 2023 15:48:04
Would like to see him arrive but if it was a real interest I think we would have all the ITK usual suspects all day ver it.,



15 Jun 2023 17:05:18
When is the Norwegian Bhoys medical?


1.) 15 Jun 2023 18:26:24
Reports said he is on holiday and will complete the deal on his return.

2.) 15 Jun 2023 23:09:24
Thanks mate.

Should we sign Miovski or Idah?


1.) 04 Jun 2024 15:55:23
Both for £10m.

2.) 04 Jun 2024 16:03:06
Id prefer idah.

3.) 04 Jun 2024 16:05:24
Idah, he's better.

4.) 04 Jun 2024 16:15:50
I would pick Miovski but I’d still be happy if Celtic signed Idah instead.

I think Miovski is a better natural finisher and would score plenty of goals for us.

5.) 04 Jun 2024 19:40:04
I've got to eat humble pie coz I was one of those who turned my nose up at Idah in Jan. For me it's Idah. He's played for Celtic, done well, the shirt isn't too heavy for him and based on our model, assuming he does well, we'd make a few bob 2 or 3 years down the line.



11 May 2024 09:12:49
Odsonne is up for sale by Crystal Palace would anyone take him back?


1.) 11 May 2024 09:32:46
Absolutely NO.

2.) 11 May 2024 09:36:18
Not for me Marco too languid and at times disinterested.

3.) 11 May 2024 09:56:07
Nah. He was sensational for us but I wouldn't go back.

4.) 11 May 2024 11:06:55
Haven’t seen anything of him since he left, but it’s safe to say he hasn’t fulfilled his potential. I never believed he downed tools; just that languid look remarked above. I think he’d do some real damage in the hoops again, so yeah, I’m down with big odd socks coming back. And of course that sensational anthem!

5.) 11 May 2024 11:32:25
He's had his day with Celtic but he's a better player than Idah!

6.) 11 May 2024 11:35:37
Have a mate in Tenerife who is a Palace fan so kept in the loop. definitely NO from me.



30 Mar 2024 07:26:53
Whatever happend to rumour of Lunin coming to us. Would anybody take him over kelleher.


1.) 30 Mar 2024 07:58:49
He's playing every week for Madrid as courtois is injured. we can't afford any of them well out our price range.

2.) 30 Mar 2024 11:51:06
It's obvious that we never learn from past windows and experiences. We'll never get who we want - we just don't do that. Lunin and Kelleher are way out our price range and budget. We'll probably bring in experience but not the player (s) we see being bandied about. How many had heard of Lubo before Dr. Jo brought him in. I'd be absolutely delighted to get 4 or 5 in over the summer with his level of experience at the cost we got him for - and so would BR. But, is that the way this club does business?



01 Feb 2024 20:48:29
I know pl is a non exec but since he has returned our transfer dealings are slower than a week in the jail. I will prob be wrong but I think he is interfering in transfers again.


1.) 01 Feb 2024 21:21:20
You’re not wrong. I wish you were wrong, I really do. But his shadow of despair is all over it.

2.) 01 Feb 2024 21:24:46
Said before wether he is or not, as long as he is in the building that suspension will persist.

3.) 01 Feb 2024 21:29:03
Come on Ed, cheers us up?

{Ed007's Note - James McCarthy to replace Harry Kewell on the coaching staff.}

4.) 01 Feb 2024 21:32:23
What genuine reason is there for him to be in the building? Of course he has an influence, too big a character (ego) not to.



08 Dec 2023 08:04:35
Can someone tell me, why Kwon doesn't get a game . Has he fell out with BR.


1.) 08 Dec 2023 09:30:08
He came from Korean division 2 . and maybe like tillio was overwhelmed?

2.) 08 Dec 2023 10:24:59
Sometimes players take a while to settle. Some never settle.

3.) 08 Dec 2023 12:20:24
Many players regress when they travel to a distant Country to play football. Some pick up a bad lifestyle, and this can affect their playing . If he eventually deserved a chance he may grasp it with open arms and become a Celtic star.

4.) 08 Dec 2023 12:35:41
We have a long list of players who never quite made the breakthrough either home-grown or 'imported'. There's also situations where one manager sees things differently from his predecessor and so on.

5.) 08 Dec 2023 12:42:28
Kobayashi got a chance and doesn't look suited to our game maybe keon the same. if he was good enough and showing up in training why would rhe manager not play him. makes no sense.

6.) 08 Dec 2023 12:58:54
Not necessarily so mally joey dawson before his injury was a goal a game in the b team but never got a sniff vata standout in b team doesn't get a chance.

{Ed007's Note - The step up from B team level to Celtic's first team is probably as big as it has ever been. A young professional playing well against part-timers doesn't mean they should be getting a chance in the first team.
Considering our B team is sitting 11th in the league - 19 points behind the leaders East Kilbride, we've scored 29 goals whereas E.K have scored 50 and Hearts 47 - I seriously doubt we'll see any of them make the step-up because they're simply not good enough, like Vata.
Until Celtic - and the rest of the SPFL - move to a proper reserve league we will continually lose our best young players because they will become better players moving elsewhere, there is no clear pathway at Celtic for youngsters to progress and that's been the case for years and will continue to the case for the foreseeable future unless there is major changes to the youth set up.
Liam Morrison & Barry Hepburn might never make it into the Bayern Munich first team but they will become far better players than they would have if they had stayed at Celtic.}

7.) 08 Dec 2023 13:30:41

The stats guys are worryingly reporting that having obtained Kwon, Yang and indeed Lagerbielke data before joining Celtic there is nothing to have justified why they were recruited.

8.) 08 Dec 2023 13:48:14
Drb a was meaning first team ready players mate. hexwas bought to play ad have thought . that's 6 to 7 months brendans been watching him. he's clearly not been showing up. again why would we not play vata if es better than what we've got in first team.

9.) 08 Dec 2023 13:53:25
Joey Dawson has a good scoring record but half the time he was on the Celtic B bench.
Says It All.

10.) 08 Dec 2023 14:18:32
I totally agree with Ed. Just bcause they look good at B level, the step up to the first team is huge and when they get the chance of training with the first team, the gap is clearly obvious.

I don't think Vata, who is highly regarded by some (and humself) is anywhere near first team quality. He doesn't have a turn of pace frim what I have seen.

Until our league and those that run it realise the potential we are losing by not having proper stepping stone leagues to top Division football, our national team will suffer, as will the majority of SPL teams.

There is literally no infrastructure or investment in our young players that would encourage them to remain here.

It is really sad situation which even our club will not do anything to improve. We re apparently happy buying young players from other clubs, as they do from us.

{Ed007's Note - ??

11.) 08 Dec 2023 14:36:28
Kwon was terrible in the one game I seen him in now I appreciate that's early on but it was as if he'd never seen a football before.

12.) 08 Dec 2023 14:45:54
Afternoon All

As I said on recent podcast.

Perhaps Vata is going to turn out to be another Karamoko Dembele or Feruz?


13.) 08 Dec 2023 14:52:36
James Forrest testimonial. I was cringing every time he went near the ball.

14.) 08 Dec 2023 15:29:49
agreed ed but if they don't get a chance we never know if they can handle it and thrive.

{Ed007's Note - But you can't just give youngsters a chance in the first team for the sake of it, especially ones that are struggling against plumbers and van drivers etc.}

15.) 08 Dec 2023 15:40:14
I think Vata’s big problem is that his father was a professional footballer and among the clubs he played, was Celtic . When young Vata wasn’t becoming the child prodigy his father thought he was, his father hawked him across Europe, many clubs looked but none were prepared to pay the nominal fee Celtic wanted . I think many fans are using Vata as an example of our recruitment/ manager not knowing the job, instead of. Vata not been first team quality. Let’s hope he finds the correct level and goes on to become as good a pro footballer as he can.

16.) 08 Dec 2023 15:48:48
The sad reality is, that because our managers are under considerable pressure to win and our squad is bloated, it is highly unlikely a youngster will even make our bench, never mind our first team.

17.) 08 Dec 2023 17:17:41
Brutal Ed but spot on. He's no different to the youngsters we buy, if they are not good enough they don't play, doesn't matter if they are home grown. Sentimentality can't play a part.

{Ed007's Note - There's no middle ground between the B team and the first team and it's too big a gap. We either need to bring back the old type reserve league, get our youngsters out on loan for a year at a decent level and then decide if they have a future at Celtic.}

18.) 08 Dec 2023 17:32:57
What about the bakers and barbers.

{Ed007's Note - They were covered with the etc.}

19.) 08 Dec 2023 18:37:29

20.) 08 Dec 2023 22:32:22
Who are the stats guys who are reporting that having came across date of three Celtic signings, they were surprised.
Who are these stat guys?
Should we not be worried about these guys accessing stats and discussing the data.

21.) 09 Dec 2023 22:06:52

Maybe kyogo wants to move on to another league to try his luck there. He isn't suited to Rodgers sideways and backwards football he needs to be in a ast attacking side.

I don't think our youth have ever won that league and if that's true if they went into the league in place of Inverness they qeoulds get relegated pretty quickly. I think the league they are in is suitable until they win that league consistently over a few years then I think the would be ready to step up but at the moment they are struggling to win that league . I am not a huge follower of them to be fair so they might be better than the results show.

Even if we buy or renew season ticket there is still something's we can do. We can boycott games and stop buying the tops training gear food and drink and all other revenue streams unsubscribe from sky sports don't pay for the games on via sports then all the club has is st money. Drastic times call for drastic measures. That's the only way the board will listen. We boycotted games during the keyy and white years.

The best atmosphere was definitely the jungle I remember being taken there with my dad and grandad and I am still sure to this day that teams when they came out the tunnel and saw the jungle put the nerves right through teams most teams were already beaten as they walked onto the pitch. I was there for the jungles last stand with tears pouring down my face as I thought it was the end of an era never to be repeated then we went on an amazing home winning spree with Mon I think it was something like 77 unbeaten games at CP.
