Just read online that we have had a bid accepted for Caleb Ekuban. 8million Euros. So the story goes anyway prob a lot of bull unless eddy is on his way.


1.) 23 Sep 2020 17:10:41
I hope this is lies the lad is absolutely gash can remember him at Leeds I wasn't impressed at all Ajeti is more than capable to fill Eddie's shoes and if Griff can pull it back we are sorted 3 fit strikers I don't want to lose Eddie by any means but 8 mil for this lad is a joke.

2.) 23 Sep 2020 17:35:35
This was weeks ago was it not non starter.

3.) 23 Sep 2020 18:27:14
Yeah sorry I read the story anf thought it was a recent one but it's from the end of August. My apologies.



27 Aug 2020 19:00:33
Looks like we are going to need 2cbs this season as Ajer wants to leave this window.


1.) 27 Aug 2020 19:30:18
Ntcham’s agent has also asked Celtic for the players valuation.
Lennon has opened up a can of worms.
I’ve been impressed by Lennon’s new found composure in his after match interviews in the last year and a half. But after the game last night he lost it.
After his outburst last night, he could be on his way to losing the dressing room.
If he hasn’t already lost it.
Time will tell how the players respond.

2.) 27 Aug 2020 19:56:01
you can't keep players that want out happy.

3.) 27 Aug 2020 20:05:17
buzz ajar and ntcham have been public before about wanting to leave and lenny pulled ntcham up about it. theve had been wanting to leave and lennon has seen that and that's why he is annoyied get them out and bring in players who want to be apart of this season.

4.) 27 Aug 2020 20:32:29
Ed's been telling us that for months tbf Marco. If he knew it then it should come as no surprise to the club.

5.) 27 Aug 2020 20:41:35
Your right United Ireland
It isn’t a total surprise because those players have been mentioned before.
I still think Edouard would want to stay and finish the job but it might depend on the outcome of this charade in the dressing room.

6.) 27 Aug 2020 21:37:32
It looks like a few will be leaving, apart from eddy the rumoured Ajer ntcham and Christie could be replaced . My only point is, do fans still want lennon to be the man to replace them. Personally not for me, there’s a few culpable from last night / Copenhagen aek etc.
Lawell, manager and a few players. I wish Desmond would get involved like before with Rogers and say enough of the cheap option for a coach. To improve we need a coach that can see a player and improve them. Lawell won’t want a big name as he can’t control them like he can lennie / Kennedy . We keep hearing about how good the training is, and intensity of it. Then we get tierney last week saying he couldn’t keep up with arsenal when he went there as the intensity was through the roof. If we are to get close to teams like this we need to be coached and trained similarly or we will keep getting beaten off second rate teams in europe.

7.) 27 Aug 2020 22:15:01
Buzz, I disagree. I've been fuming with Lennon since last night. As today has gone by today I'm wondering if it may be that he has played his card very well. Maybe he's putting it up to these players. He's calling them out and publicly saying shape up or ship out. I don't think there's a dressing room charade or anything else going on, Lennon is clearly making his point to the ones who think they're superstars and I now hope they'll go. Time to back the team and time to back the manager guys. HH.

8.) 28 Aug 2020 07:15:12
Does anybody else think yesterday’s announcement on players has been timed to perfection. After the defeat on Wednesday, everyone was a saying that we’re going to have to sell Edouard to make up for the shortfall in champions league cash. Does anyone think maybe Lennon has been told by Lawwell to make that announcement, in order to create some interest in some of the players and potential sales to cover the money we won’t get now from the champions league.



08 Aug 2020 10:06:31
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.

Score predictions
I am going for
Celtic 1 AC Milan 3 only because we are playing crap and we have no tactics lol.


1.) 22 Oct 2020 08:15:48
5 - 0 to Milan.

2.) 22 Oct 2020 08:27:19
We never got a shot on target against Rangers and Milan are a wee bit better than them so who knows?

3.) 22 Oct 2020 10:31:44
I think we will lose by 3 as we are poor at the moment and they're flying by all accounts.



18 Oct 2020 09:11:55
Ed are you of the same persuation that lennon must go before this gets much worse. We need a tactical manager not one who wants to constantly pass the buck. Well Mr Lennon the BUCK stops with you. Please don't let the door hit you on your way out
Mr Lawell get the fans a manager who can actually manage a football team and someone who has more than a plan a. Because if you don't there maybe a backlash then you will be next out the door.


{Ed007's Note - Lennon won't be going anywhere any time soon. What he needs to do
is decide what his best formation is and his best starting XI regardless off who ends up on the bench or out the picture, any trouble makers should be reminded that they are playing for Celtic and if they can't respect what that means and act professionally then they won't be playing until they buck up their ideas or get their move.
Watching the game again earlier and it's as if the players don't know their job in the formation, is the manager making it clear what he wants from them or is the constant pointless passes because the players don't know what the gameplan actually is?}

1.) 18 Oct 2020 19:10:34
Hi Ed it’s clear watching us on the park the players don’t know what there actual roles are in the formation and with that can’t execute whatever Lennons plan is within the set up! Players looked scared to gamble or go out from there own position and create something.

{Ed007's Note - I used to blame it on the fact Brown was the one controlling our tempo and gameplay but it's not that, it's a bigger problem. Yesterday reminded me of those CL qualifiers where we came up against teams we should be beating but they are better organised and well drilled in what their individual jobs on the park are.
Lennon's team selection was bizarre to say the least and is it really that big a deal that the team was leaked? Imagine MON bothering about his team getting leaked, a daft man could predict his teams if everyone was fit. Again the problem is NL doesn't know his best XI and his tinkering when it's not needed and playing players out of position isn't helping anyone - especially him.}

2.) 18 Oct 2020 19:16:39
A didn’t think a could get more depressed until I read you say Lennon won’t be going anywhere soon.

{Ed007's Note - I'll email you later on mate, I'm not long getting online 👍 I can't see him resigning and no way will DD or Lawwell pull the plug because of some iffy performances and losing to TRIFC. To be fair he should be given time to sort out his own mess. Playing Milan next isn't going to help but as I said when the draw was made I don't expect us to get many points there, our focus now needs to be on maintaining our domestic dominance. As soon as we went out the CL that should have been drilled into the players heads imo. Getting into the CL would make money and raise the Club and players profiles but being part of a team that 10 in a row, a potential quadruple and then fifth straight Treble would make these players famous and immortalised for the rest of eternity.
My spidey senses were sent a twinkle when I read that DD had spoken about getting some kind of sports psychologist in and Lennon kind of agreed, why would we need that if Lennon's strengths is motivating players?}

3.) 18 Oct 2020 19:56:09
Ed that was DD being diplomatic? He must look at squad size and annual wage bill and wonder why we stagnate and don't progress. The reality ( the brutal truth) . is that a decent manager can take a mediocre team up a level, a good manager up another level and a great manager can work wonders even where talent is limited. Obviously great managers and great players at their disposal equals dynamite. We have a good level of experience and decent to good players and a poor manager. A poor, lost, unsure manager can do a lot of damage and this is what is happening I think. I don't know, but that is what I think.

If in doubt you hope that there are enough leaders on the field to make up the deficit. I don't see Brown in that role. I don't enjoy listening to brown's interviews either. They are lazy answers to decent questions. Lennon is a walking talking contradiction week to week which means that he is either forgetful, stupid, or thinks we are all stupid with limited recall.

This is SERIOUS.

4.) 18 Oct 2020 20:58:55
Maybe there are too many players at PH and it's a helluva job man-managing those who think they should be playing and perhaps that's where the problem lies. I'm a part-time Transport Manager with various companies and I find it hard listening to all the moaning going on and trying to pacify and motivate them at the same time. Lennon has it tight working with them on a daily basis but he's paid a helluva lot more than I do. I think holding onto them for the season will backfire. There has to be a freshening of the squad in January with more players leaving than coming in - and the ones coming in have to be better than those leaving.



15 Oct 2020 05:49:48
Just seen the Scotland score wow what a result well done Scotland I don't watch international football but what a result so I will say again well done Scotland.


1.) 15 Oct 2020 11:33:03
I was wanting them to get pumped so our players don't play in a summer tournament.

2.) 15 Oct 2020 18:59:04
Hey Law the Euro playoff is against Serbia and I doubt very much that they will beat Serbia.



05 Oct 2020 08:04:13
Is this guy from Ac Milan any good.


1.) 05 Oct 2020 09:24:22
he has not signed yet so you have a few more hours to moan about needing a left back marco.

2.) 05 Oct 2020 09:35:55
Very good player, was stand out at Genoa when they played 352

Quick and likes to attack

Sure he was a centre mid in his younger days but is comfortable with the ball

Definitely a few levels above Taylor in all areas.

3.) 05 Oct 2020 09:48:55
Just watched highlights? See ajer pops up on right to assist in Griffin goal hh.

4.) 05 Oct 2020 09:56:34
Good for taylor too . everyone needs competition and Taylor is young.

5.) 05 Oct 2020 10:17:57
I watched some footage and he has many good attributes.

Reads game well
Good on the counter
Can go passed players
Both footed
Decent crosser

Obviously these are just highlight reels which showcase his best bits, so going to hold off on my judgement until i see him play.

6.) 05 Oct 2020 11:32:23
I wouldn't imagine you can get 24 caps for Uruguay if you are not a good player.

It will be more to do with the culture shock of playing in Scotland and if he settles that will determine if he is any good for us. Provided he signs that is.



04 Oct 2020 08:55:33
I don't think we have any spinning plates anymore. I think they might have all crashed and now I think we will be looking for some quick fixes.


1.) 04 Oct 2020 10:45:03
I agree Marco, not long to go in the window. if they are to do anything it best be a spectacular double signing of a lb and rw.

2.) 04 Oct 2020 12:11:39
It is not good enough. we all know we need a left sided LB or LWB

We let boli go ( noting circumstances) and a reserve left back . we need to plug this gap

It feels a little amateurish noting how blatant the need is

Are we that unattractive?

{Ed007's Note - We don't need a LB imo, we need a LWB. We have a perfectly good LB in Taylor.}

3.) 04 Oct 2020 12:53:54
Whats the chances of us pulling off a lwb ED007?

{Ed007's Note - I'm not into that mate but each to their own, there's no judgement about that on here 👊💦

4.) 04 Oct 2020 14:16:56
Funny i see snodgrass being linked what about a left wing back.

Ed how can you defen Duffy, I don't watch the epl or internationals I watch celtic and celtic only and Duffy was being hailed as the next messiah and people were also mentioning his nationality. My point is I only see the guys when the play for celtic and I was told he is an old fashioned ch who just clears his lines, how many goals has he cost us this season because of his mistakes, all I am saying is that if a player who plays for Ireland joins us then they seem to get more chances than if we had signed some Brazilian or African. I know it's not fair but I judge on his displays for celtic.


{Ed007's Note - Did you write off Henrik Larsson after 10 games as well because he looked honking when he first came? Duffy will improve as his match fitness/sharpness gets up to scratch and when he isn't being caught out having to cover for a RB who can't defend and constantly leaves the defence exposed.}

And Duffy.

24 Oct 2020 21:38:38
I think if big Duffy was another nationality everyone would be wanting him out the team. But because he is Irish people are willing to keep giving him chances enough is enough.


{Ed007's Note - That's just bollocks. Duffy held his own in his over 100 apps in the best Pub League in the world, the fact he's a Celtic supporter is only a bonus as you need players who knows what it means to wear the jersey. He lost his place at Brighton simply because he's not a silky ball playing CB which they wanted and we have enough of.
Better players than Duffy have had worse starts to their Celtic career and now morons have started using his nationality as a stick to beat him - don't be a moron, Marco.}

After that performance I think they just sit and play the Ps4. They don't look like they do anything.
