Ed, we need like 4/ 5 signings if Dembele goes, you reckon we'll even get close to that?

You can see its just disjointed panicking by the fans Ed. can't really blame them tbh can you. It's looking grim.

{Ed007's Note - I understand the fans frustration and feel the same way if I'm honest but I can't keep answering the same questions over and over again about what I think, it doesn't change much and especially in the space of a couple of hours.
How many times have I said that I expect some players to leave and that I expect 3 or 4 new signings - loans or permanent - because that's what the manager has said we are trying to do?
Why's it looking grim, are Lyon fans saying it's looking grim leaving it this late to sign Dembele? It wasn't too long ago that there were a lot of people on here arguing with me that we didn't need 3 first team strikers on the books so it looks like they've got their wish and we've banked £20 odd million, why's there no celebrations from them?}

From what I can see, Ed007 is like the rest of us. Fingers crossed, wait and see.

{Ed007's Note - I'm a bit tired and that might have been a bit bitchy, sorry lads, it's been a long week for me with one thing and another.}

Bitchy? I don't know how you don't **** the laptop out the window every transfer window bud.

{Ed007's Note - Oooffft I'd need to start a go fund me page to replace it lol

If Griff is leading the line on Sunday we have a problem.

I think 20 million plus is a great deal for Dembele. 50 goals in 2 seasons will be hard to replace but I can’t really remember him getting a proper run of games without an injury striking him. He leaves with my best wishes and some great Hunskelping memories.

I would love to see us go for someone completely different to what we already have up top. A target man or the likes where we can play a bit differently if needed. The 3 we have all very similar and as we are struggling to break a lot of teams down so something different might be the answer.

No need to apologise, we know your busy and also have a lot going on at home to deal with. You should take it all as a compliment though mate, guys on here value your opinion and knowledge on all things Celtic. However, i can see why its frustrating out of you. We are all kids and your the school teacher.

{Ed007's Note - Thanks, Shug but fair's fair and I'll apologise if I need to to. On top of everything else Yoda's had more $hit running out him the past 24 hours than a Rangers EBT recipient so I didn't get much sleep last night.}

I don't know when I started noticing the 'what do you think, Ed' posts, but they seem to me relatively recent? The bewildered herd--I include my bewildered self--want news from delphos. But the fact is ed007 is often oracular.

We used to put the lack of rumours down to the board conducting business professionally in private. Now?

{Ed007's Note - I am feckin not oracular I'll have you know!! I try and follow a healthy diet and I'm regular as clockwork so there's nothing oracular about my bowels. Hhhmmpphhh talk about a cheap dig!!!}

At the moment we haven’t lost one regular starter from a team who have won back to back trebles. We’ve got teams from all over Europe allegedly poised to offer sums of between £10m to £20m for four of our players and I fully expect to sell no more than two and if we do, we’ll get top dollar for them. We might bring in a couple but to be honest, I wouldn’t be too bothered if we don’t. By Monday we’ll be in the group stages of the EL and we’ll be 4 points clear of Sevco and on our way to another league title, possibly even a third treble. I do wish people would stop posting doom and gloom stories because they have as much foundation as the pish being written in the Scottish press. We’re in a better place than we’ve been in a long time.

The way I see it players in demand like Christie and Hayes (Aberdeen) Allan (Hibs) Compper (Pay off) Boyata (Turkey) Dembele (France) will free up the chance for us to get players in. We have got an over inflated squad. So movement out needs doing first before we decide our Euro fat, especially after the failure of qualifying for the CL. The books need balanced. And I'm sure BR has said who he can do without and who he needs in as a replacement which up until now he has been clear is a PR and SA replacement first off. If Boyata leaves a replacement and if Dembele leaves a replacement for him too. But we can't afford to ship out before we get in either as we could end up really short of cover so it's finding a replacement first. Something will be sorted and as ED has said some will praise the signings and others will criticize the signings, but we will get people in. To be fair if the likes of Terry, Solanke, Chirivella and Benkovic come in we can't say they aren't of quality. we would've done well to get that kind of quality through the door which I still think is a big task considering the situation we are in.

Have faith in Griff Jonnymac. The little fella produces on the big stage. Don’t think their two centre halves will fancy running around after him with his movement. Once Griff has bagged a couple we’ll bring on French Eddy to dust them off 👍🏻.

Got to have money on wee Griff getting his 100th Celtic goal against the new club.

Bhoys hope you are right. Been waiting for him to come good and the chances he has against AEK and the EL game last week tells me he is not the player he was a couple of seasons ago.
