Just heard we might be getting a guy in tomiri from Chelsea don't know if is any good was at Derby on loan last year made 44 app is this guy any good or has anyone heard of him.


1.) 08 Aug 2020 10:23:48
Fikayo Tamori. for one so young his trajectory and impact has been awesome

Seems a player

To be a loanee and win player of the season and ti win fa youth cups and UEFA champions youth league. says something

Could be interesting

Similar to denayer only better.

2.) 08 Aug 2020 10:28:11
I know a few people that rate him but i've seen him play about 10 - 15 with derby and england under 21s and thought he looked horrendous. A bit like a cross between boyata and ambrose. Think he played a few times for chelsea last year but couldn't tell you how he did.

3.) 08 Aug 2020 11:51:00
I haven't seen him
You have

On that basis, derby must be rank.

4.) 08 Aug 2020 12:28:38
Hes a very good and versatile young defender. That would be some signing. Him ajeti, fletcher then all we need is a winger and maybe another gk and we are good to go.

5.) 08 Aug 2020 12:32:15
This isn't first time we've been linked with him.

6.) 08 Aug 2020 13:18:03
Hed be an excellent signing seen this kid a good few times and he looks the part.

7.) 08 Aug 2020 13:27:08
Saw him play last season for Chelsea good young player we were after him when he was at Derby. Frank Lampard took him back to Chelsea.
Not the tallest but quick and good tackler.

8.) 08 Aug 2020 18:05:19
We also need a quality left back to challenge Greg Taylor .

9.) 08 Aug 2020 19:42:01
Johnny hayes, get him signed!

10.) 08 Aug 2020 23:24:06
Are we completely skint at the minute, we only seem to be going for loan players, I can see the point with Ajeti but he’s a”try before you buy “ deal. , we have wasted quite a bit on forwards but the short term loan deal only solves a problem short term . If they play well all we do is push their price up, with season tickets sold, Adidas deal, players off the wage bill surely we could afford a centre back . We have only signed one permanent player so far .
Push the button lawell!

11.) 09 Aug 2020 09:00:59
I don't mind loan players with the option to buy. Given some of the signings I think loans are a safe option but want some sort of guarantee so we aren't developing other teams youth ar the expense of our own. Think tomori would be a good signing he was around the england squad last season.



29 Jul 2020 18:45:04
Barkas deal to be announced tomorrow apparently.




23 Jul 2020 09:25:59
Roma goalkeeper now being looked at started all 5 games if Sweden world Cup campaign. I don't watch football other than celtic so I don't know if he is any good or not but he is 30yrs old and went out on loan to some other Italian team from what I have read.


1.) 23 Jul 2020 11:02:46
I know NL must have thought Forster would be happy to come back after such a great season, but the situation has left us on the back foot, with a distinct urgency and a pressure to get this position sorted.
Bain, may be seen as competent enough domestically, but he does not instill any confidence in me or the defense against decent opponents.
Hopefully, we will unveil a top class goalie in the coming days?

2.) 23 Jul 2020 12:13:24
The thing is never mind Bain it’s what’s there after Bain we are an injured Bain away from youngsters being used that’s the scary thing.

3.) 23 Jul 2020 15:23:06
Robin Olsen on loan at Cagliari from Roma, would be a good signing .

4.) 23 Jul 2020 16:13:04
Heard he’s a good keeper with great attitude and good reflexes but his agent is a corn on the cob.

5.) 24 Jul 2020 17:31:11
No more scary than a fit Bain for me Rich. We've got some fantastic youngsters so maybe one of the keepers is a bumper.



14 Jul 2020 19:51:31
Seen online that Eddy might be ready to sign a new 5yr deal don't know if there is any truth in it though but it would be amazing if it was true.


1.) 14 Jul 2020 21:28:31
christie in talks as well.

2.) 14 Jul 2020 21:34:49
Does that mean he is getting transferred.

3.) 14 Jul 2020 21:46:53
Can't see a five year deal but under the current climate tying down deals like that would be just as good as a major signing.

4.) 14 Jul 2020 22:34:09
If its a 5 year deal there will be many clauses in it. Win win for both parties Eddy gets a big pay hike and we're guaranteed big bucks when he goes.

5.) 15 Jul 2020 09:38:42
May sign a 5 year deal, but how much of that is just to bolster the asking price when we sell him.

6.) 16 Jul 2020 10:14:51
I know he will be sold soon enough I just want him here for the 10 and maybe he wants that too.



26 Aug 2019 15:52:56
Just seen something about lennon saying we might get two in today.


1.) 26 Aug 2019 16:39:41
He’s been saying that for weeks, 😂 heard juanmatt from Watford?

2.) 26 Aug 2019 16:44:43
We might not anaw.

3.) 26 Aug 2019 18:38:37
Better get a move on then Marco not long left of today! Lol. im sure they’ll be in first thing in the morning 🤦🏻‍♂️😆😆.

4.) 26 Aug 2019 18:42:22
Meling playing morra or Wednesday does anyone know?

5.) 26 Aug 2019 19:00:51
Tuesday Rich.

6.) 26 Aug 2019 19:10:42
So he plays Tuesday for Rosenborg and Thursday for us ha ha ha.

7.) 26 Aug 2019 20:01:25
Not sure IF we qualify and IF we bring in Meling would he be able to play in the group stages for us?

8.) 26 Aug 2019 20:22:23
Pretty sure he would be fine to play in Europa lads.

9.) 27 Aug 2019 06:18:46
Don’t know why he bothers to say this sort of stuff, another day goes by. We all know it will be a couple of loan signings on the last day. Usual guff, we tried our best just couldn’t get them over the line. It takes us an eternity to sign players, yet we are supposed to get two in on one day. We need to replace players we let go, we have millions sitting in the bank. Just go spend it on some quality to strengthen the side. 😡.

10.) 27 Aug 2019 08:22:05
I think this morning is a perfect example of the press having no idea on what we are doing in this window or who our targets are. They have in one story that we aren’t wanting to pay 3 million for Taylor so are now after keeping and on another we aren’t wanting merging we are after Taylor.

11.) 27 Aug 2019 09:10:55
Lennon talks mince I won't be falling for his crap again. Same old celtic. Lennon should keep his mouth shut until he has something concrete to tell us.

My new home top came yesterday along with my mask lol.




30 Jul 2020 09:18:17
Ed. Do you think gutman and perez will ever get thier work permits. Or will we end up selling them.


{Ed007's Note - I can't see either getting a work permit and I think it's more likely they will eventually be freed.}

1.) 30 Jul 2020 11:08:27
Are the work permit issues down to a lack of personal progression Ed? Or were they maybe just stupid signings from the off?

{Ed007's Note - They were definitely strange signings, Kev as it was obvious they wouldn't get work permits and it looks like they weren't up to the standards to apply for one under the "exceptional talent" route like we had to do with Wanyama.}

2.) 30 Jul 2020 12:35:25
Can you explain something please Ed? Does a work permit mean that they can't play football? I'm assuming they're being paid by Celtic so must have some sort of work permit?

{Ed007's Note - Forgetting the complexities of Brexit the laws are basically if you aren't from an EU country you need a visa/work permit to do any job in the UK. Their contract with Celtic is just the same as anyone working abroad who is employed by UK company.}

3.) 30 Jul 2020 16:45:41
It's a pity as gutman looked decent last pre season. can we not now swap them for the other american were touted with.

{Ed007's Note - I doubt it.}

4.) 30 Jul 2020 20:44:48
I think it’s too simple and easy to say that we should loan out a number of players . It has been the making of a few and the ruination of a few also . But look at E Henderson, he hasn’t improved any and if anything looks surprised and nervous when ball comes near .
Loaning out a play is full of difficulties, it can be hard to know whether manager of club he goes to, wants to play him, if he has a youngster of his own improving and both competing for one position.



30 Jul 2020 09:16:24
Ed do you think we will sign a CB I personally think we have enough coverage thier. Big elhamed can play thier if needed.


{Ed007's Note - I think we will sign another CB especially if Lennon is going to regularly use 3-5-2. Can we trust Elhamed to stay fit?}

1.) 30 Jul 2020 12:37:03
Definitely need another CB. I don't know much about the young guys in the squad but an injury to Jullien or Ajer would be worrying. I like Bitton but he's not as good as either of them imo.

2.) 30 Jul 2020 12:37:29
Think we could do with a left footed CB.

3.) 30 Jul 2020 16:14:15
I think we missed a trick with veltman that Brighton just signed from Ajax . Only went for 900 grand, has played centre back and left back for Ajax, I seem to remember we were linked with him a few seasons ago.



28 Jul 2020 15:52:33
My old man used to say any striker worth there salt could get 20 goals a season with celtic due to the chances we make. Maybe Bayo just can't handle being at a big club.


1.) 28 Jul 2020 16:59:29
Well, I would say any striker worth his salt, won't get any goals if he is not being played.



28 Jul 2020 15:46:28
Any names popping up regarding a new centre half.


1.) 28 Jul 2020 16:28:50
I hope we can dig up some one like a Paul Elliott soon.

2.) 28 Jul 2020 18:24:19
Good shout Tony you’re not asking much though asking for the best centre half I’ve seen at Celtic Park in my lifetime other than Van Dyke! Boruc, McGrain, Elliot, Van Dyke and KT wouldn’t be a bad benchmark eh?

3.) 28 Jul 2020 19:44:47
Elliot was great but I liked big Johan. Would also have tom boyd over kt. No doubt kt will be better but based on their time at celtic boyd gets my vote.

4.) 28 Jul 2020 20:03:13
KT loses massive points for his time at the club and is no Celtic great for me. Tommy Boyd and Johan are great shouts and left us with better memories. I was speaking purely on ability and potential. Good points though 👍☘️.

5.) 28 Jul 2020 21:28:18
Paul Elliot 🙇‍♀️.

6.) 28 Jul 2020 22:00:22
Loved big Elliot. that's how I want a defender to play, big stubbsie is up there too, a centre half that could spray 40 yard diagonal passes into the path of a running winger. Top class the pair of them.

7.) 28 Jul 2020 22:19:00
big elliot was better than Mjällby by a good bit.

8.) 28 Jul 2020 23:58:01
I don't understand why we haven't tapped into the Dutch market again. I remember when we all realised big virgil was a player, some Dutch coach was interviewed and said that there was plenty more like him if not better! . Something to do with the way the Dutch are coached from a young age in reading the game etc.

9.) 29 Jul 2020 00:20:28
Far better kev but big johan was immense.

10.) 29 Jul 2020 00:21:25
Hmmm I wonder who I'd pick?

11.) 29 Jul 2020 02:06:55
Maybe worth getting a dutch coach in briggs? Wonder what jansen is up to? Or hiddink.

Is your source HITC they have something about it but it's from March 2019. So I think this is old news he said he would like to play for celtic one day.

I don't know who is is but if an English club are after him we can forget it unless he wants medals over money.

We thought Tierney would have stayed for the ten but as soon as money is flaunted they are off.

On his day griff is brilliant but there has to come a time when enough us enough. The club and fans stood by him during his depression you would think he would want to repay that trust. If he doesn't want to do that then it has got to be goodbye. If we get ajeti and Fletcher then we are covered anyway. Unless Lenny has already told him he is finished then maybe that's why he had the part as he couldn't careless. Only he knows why.

Seen somewhere the ajeti deal is loan with perm option if he gets a certain amount of games this season.

Did we not beat the champions of sweden a couple of years back. We should be able to take care of anyone in this round and the next it's the playoff that could be a problem. Also away goals don't count.
