Hearing some Celtic officials are in Holland to try and get a deal done with Heerenveen for Jerry St. Juste. Just something I've heard so thought I'd share it. HH.

Seen him a couple of times last season and looked impressive not seen any of his games this season tho. Has anybody seen him play lately?

Agree3 0Disagree

22 Apr 2017 13:55:37
If I'm honest I've never seen him play, but based on info online and thru people who have seen him play he is a young defender with a lot of potential.

Agree3 1Disagree

22 Apr 2017 17:10:13
Having never seen this guy play looked him up and watched a youtube video (yes I know) he looks a bit small and I would say a little rash but has good pace while watching that I checked his teammate Sam Larsson who looked pretty good as well but again youtube videos can make most players look good but he seemed to have a good turn of pace and vision can score a free kick as well.

Agree0 0Disagree

In my opinion he is about the same class as Eric sviatchenko which ain't good enough for champion league.

Celtic haven't beaten Rangers in a Scottish Cup semi since 1925? Good job we're not playing them then! There can be no hoodoo beyond the memory of last year and imo, the team that played RIFC last year no longer exists either. Our team this year needs to play out their socks and put the match to bed before any honest mistakes can have any bearing on the matter.

We are preparing for CL qualification and if we can't beat this bunch of mugs then we're in trouble. Need to make it the game of the season, really hoping we hit them a dillion. Full gutty!

As long as we start Boyata, Roberts and Rogic we will be good, need to go back to the 4-2-3-1 formation.

{Ed007's Note - We played our best football when we played 4-2-3-1 earlier in the season and with Rogic back I don't see any reason why Rodgers won't revert to that so fingers crossed but I think you'll be disappointed come Sunday when Forrest will more than likely start.
Hopefully the players are fired up for this, if we turn up and play the way we know we can we will destroy them.
My team for Sunday would be:

-----------------Gordon---------
Lustig--Simunovic----Boyata---Tierney--
------------Brown----Armstrong----
Roberts---------Rogic-----Sinclair---
---------------Dembele----

But I think Rodgers will go with Forrest starting on the right and I don't even want to consider that he'll go with a 4-3-3.}

Ed was lustig not injured or was he just rested.

{Ed007's Note - He missed training on Friday and as far as I know it was just a precaution that he didn't play at the weekend so I'm hoping he's fit for Sunday, Steph.}

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Apr 2017 17:47:50
Yeah Ed that's the team I thought would start I was just hoping Roberts would get a start although it will be good to have him come on fresh for the last 30 minutes.

{Ed007's Note - If we can settle down and get our passing game flowing we'll have the chasing shadows tiring themselves out as the game goes on - that's the time to unleash Paddy and Griffiths.}

Agree2 0Disagree

20 Apr 2017 19:21:55
ed i like that team. was a big boyata critic but erik doesn't fill nme with confidence these days whereas boyata seems to have come on toa game. tho id happily play the developments squad let's get real bhoys this is the worst hun team in my lietime (40 now : ( ) as the song gows . get intae them.

{Ed007's Note - Sviatchenko has lost his good form, over the last couple months he's looked nervous and slow to react at times. It's as if he's carrying a knock but I've not heard or seen anything about that and there's no reason to play him if he is with the squad we have.}

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Apr 2017 19:50:55
Ed I'm with u on that lineup, but like u have a feeling Forrest will start.
Would prefer Roberts starting n i would rather get a great 60 minutes out of him at least than only 20 odd minutes to 30 at the end.
Players like him rogic n Sinclair always have that final ball, that beating of a man n goals in them and again for me wee james just isn't on a par with any of them.
Yes he has had a better season but too inconsistent n doesn't score n create enough regularly n how many games does he win us, Sinclair, dembele, rogic n Roberts all have that in their locker to turn a game or win us game n if Roberts doesn't sign permanently it's a position, along with goalkeeper that must be addressed.
Bring on the sevco anyway, always good to put the new club in their place.
Here we go 10 n a row.

{Ed007's Note - When people say Forrest has improved I just don't see it as he's still the same inconsistent player who struggles with his decision making. The only thing that's really improved is his his injury record and that will probably be down to him actually doing what the Club tell him for a change. He's a good SPFL player but beyond that he's nowhere near good enough.}

Agree4 0Disagree

21 Apr 2017 07:36:21
Like that team ed but he'll prob go with forrest he maybe tracks back a bit better than paddy but paddy coming on for 30 mins is the ladt thkng sevco want to see.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Apr 2017 13:18:35
I think BR sees roberts as a impact sub tbh, so can see forrest starting, but like fellow posters would prefer to see roberts in from the start, if rogic is fit its got to be 4231.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Apr 2017 13:28:31
My only issue with your team Ed is that Lustig struggled with McKay's pace at Ibrox and ended up getting booked quite early and with Roberts not the most willing to track back, it could pose a problem when they attack.

{Ed007's Note - Lustig wasn't booked until the 65th minute but hopefully on Sunday Forrest will do his job and track back to help his fullback for a change.}

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Apr 2017 15:24:03
Sorry Ed, maybe not that early but I can remember them taking heart from it and him struggling as he couldn't put the foot in after that. Forrest offers very little defensively but it's still probably more than Roberts. Attacking there's only one winner. Regardless we should have enough to do a job on them. Moussa needs a performance.

{Ed007's Note - The whole team owes us a performance after some of the recent lacklustre showings. I'm hoping Rogic coming back will give us a huge boost in the final third and with Sinclair consistently performing well even though he looks a bit jaded at times there should be plenty of chances for Dembele to put them to the sword.}

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Apr 2017 21:55:59
Time for return to form, Roberts and Moose starting is a must but we'll see. One thing for sure, don't want Bitton anywhere near the pitch.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Apr 2017 01:20:47
I'll second that davie. With rogic and dembele fit a bit further up to hold the ball it let's Armstrong and brown do a bit more defensive work if needed. The back four that starts I want to see finish the game.

Agree1 1Disagree

21 Apr 2017 23:28:19
I agree ed regards lustig and i don't get where Forrest is better at tracking back then Roberts, i think its the other way round n in going forward lustig n Roberts work better together for me anyway.
It's the 1 thing that puzzles me with Brendan in picking Forrest over Roberts, i just don't get it and most folk u speak to me would pick Roberts every time.
I back every player in a Celtic jersey but if we are to progress in Europe as well as dominate domestically we need to be strong in all positions, and Gordon n Forrest r the 2 i feel we need better quality. Roberts or a. n. other in a top keeper who actually instills confidence n pulls off the big saves at that higher level.
3 1 Celtic i reckon on Sunday, sevco goal no doubt an obligatory penalty by whichever mason is taking charge of his favourite new teams game.
Here we go 10 in a row.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Apr 2017 14:19:15
Roberts everyday for me, I do think there has been an improvement with JF but PR is streets ahead of him. Brown and Armstrong sitting deep MF tomorrow could end up running the show. Hoping for a great improvement on last few games.

Agree0 0Disagree

17 Apr 2017 22:05:54
Please tell me there is no chance whatsoever of the rumour about John Terry joining Celtic having any chance of being true. Alongside Diouf, the most vile creature associated with football ever in my opinion.

He has played in a celtic top before! . stans charity match.

If he was willing to take the necessary wage drop, I wouldn't hesitate. Surely we need to look at guys of his experience if we want to improve in Europe?

Bit of a nob but a quality CB.

18 Apr 2017 14:20:43
He's mentioned a few times he's a fan. wouldn't be for me but, we should be looking for a quality centre half and there's no doubt in his day he was! But that day was a long time ago, he's finished IMO. add to that he sounds and looks a first class baw bag! The players would need to keep their other halves away from the games to 😂😂😳.

Mikeb443, how is a guy that is well over the hill going to improve us for Europe?

18 Apr 2017 14:38:00
Terry must be the latest player lined up for the tribute act for next season, remember they can sell 8 players and get enough money to pay Terry his weekly wage, the same idea they have for Wayne Rooney . Lol.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Apr 2017 17:53:46
Kev83, I'm not so sure he is well over the hill, but if he's not right then so be it.
I personally think he still has a lot to offer any team. At times we lack solidity, composure and leadership in our defence and he's a man that has all that plus big game experience.

Agree1 2Disagree

18 Apr 2017 21:09:50
Is he not Clint hills dad?

18 Apr 2017 21:14:00
Kolo was a failed experiment at his age and don't see us repeating it with JT. I don't think we should be buying EPL has beens as it only adds fuel to their fire with respect to the standard of Scottish football in the Brexiteers opinion.

Agree2 0Disagree

18 Apr 2017 22:45:09
John Terry said that he chose to follow Celtic because his brother preferred the Huns, just to have a bit of rivalry - he doesn't have any genuine fondness for the club. On top of that, I have never ever seen why he was consodered even decent: his positioning has always been atrocious and he's about as quick as a pregnant blue whale. on land. And he's past even that.

Agree2 4Disagree

18 Apr 2017 22:55:48
Think he was shown up in international matches, to be another over hyped premier prima Donna.

Agree2 3Disagree

19 Apr 2017 10:22:32
Jfp1888, I not so sure kolo was a failed experiment.
I don't think we would have made champions league without him.
That last qualifying game he made all the difference at the end.
But there have been more failures signing old players from epl than successes.

Agree2 2Disagree

19 Apr 2017 13:52:38
I'm sure the signing of kolo was to help steady the defence short term and just to have his experience in and around the team . The long term was always to be part of brendans coaching team .

Agree2 0Disagree

19 Apr 2017 14:07:16
Kolo brought stability to the defence, when it needed it.

this is the same Rafael we got about Gerrard.

Brendan is building a young competitive team and that would be a backward step.

id take but don't see it happening, i think he's still the best cb chelsea have.

Agree0 1Disagree

17 Apr 2017 21:49:49
Onyekuru is not going to the EPL; he dos not meet the work permit standards so the only people who have a chance of signing him are the Europeans. I still don't believe he will come to us as we don't get involved with auctions.

{Ed007's Note - There's no reason why Henry Onyekuru wouldn't qualify for a work-permit as an exceptional talent the same as Wanyama and Eboue Kouassi.}

Believable1 0Unbelievable

18 Apr 2017 04:51:30
I said the EPL would not grant him a work permit as he does not meet their qualifing standards. The SPL and scotland would grant a work permit.

{Ed007's Note - I think you need to read up on tne changes that were made to the FA regs in 2015.}

Would love us to sign this kid.

Going to be very difficult to go unbeaten with Bias Officials We can only beat 11 players in front of us but Referees have raised the bar on what can only be described as organised cheating from the very top.

Believable6 8Unbelievable

@dth100 - so Browns wasn't a sending off?

Agree0 7Disagree

17 Apr 2017 08:08:59
Ffs. Aye the ref got it wrong but he didn't tell the guy to dive, plus it was a stone wall red. So if we don't go unbeaten or win the treble i'd blame Brown not the ref.

Agree4 7Disagree

17 Apr 2017 09:41:42
Yellow would have sufficed ;)

Agree5 3Disagree

17 Apr 2017 09:53:30
Browns wasn't a sending off no! Actually watch it back! Yes he dived in but never a red card! Yellow at most. like I've said before on here, it will take more than scotlands current buns with a whistle to stop us! Bring on next Sunday, with or without broony it doesn't matter in the slightest! That the treble is ours!

Agree6 4Disagree

17 Apr 2017 09:57:29
no it wasn't it was it was a yellow same colour as Don Robertson gave for the tackle on Kieran Tierney against Motherwell which was worse. The ref was just waiting on that chance to award a penalty and it was not going to matter if it was for a foul or not . its the same with the cheating that joe garner done last week disgusting trying to cheat but that's normal for your lot.

Agree6 5Disagree

17 Apr 2017 09:58:39
Am I the only one who thinks it shouldn't have been red? A definite yellow for me, referees set a standard and if that's red and Joey garners volley on the Hamilton guy ( name escapes me) is a yellow then it seems to be double standards yet again.

Agree5 3Disagree

17 Apr 2017 11:13:02
@Augustus - no everyone from the East End including Brenda didn't think it was a red. As for the hypocrisy on here - where's your outrage when Divebele goes down too easily?

@lh86 - you just lost your own argument by saying Brown dived in so he wasn't in control.

Agree0 6Disagree

17 Apr 2017 11:53:30
From the Halls of the SFA to the Grand Master, the cry has been anyone but Celtic and the Lanarkshire Referee Association will carry out the orders to the full.

17 Apr 2017 17:14:37
So every player who dives in should be sent off? Don't talk rubbish! If that was the case joe garner would never get on the pitch! Browns was no more than a yellow, but I'm sure that won't matter when his appeal is heard! But by that time broony will have helped us into another final! And if u lot think broony is such an overrated crap player then it won't bother u if he plays! 😉😉.

Agree5 0Disagree

17 Apr 2017 17:17:21
UJ has nothing else to do but feed his own delusion by coming on to the Champions site and spouting the level 5 drivel. He'll be off soon to begin his marching season, wearing their pyjamas onesies and still practising to play that big base drum whilst trying to walk in line full of Buckie.

How's the King doing with your new Club?

A report on sport bible / talking baws a think it was accredited to . He says there has been contact from Celtic amongst other clubs but talks are ongoing . In the interview he said his current club know he is leaving definitely in the summer . He has seen a route to show his skills at Celtic / develop and in the future move to guess where? ( EPL ) only 19 so if possible for a decent fee and then move on later like wanyama, vvd? Only

Mally I pointed out that he was in contact with celtic and other clubs also! And I said that he was looking at ways to get to the epl. To be fair I have never seen him play and only recognised his name through posts on here . I was mearly point out his interview on line . Today's daily mirror claims celtic are fighting it out with West Brom for his signature . Source ( sly sports newspaper round up )

17 Apr 2017 09:56:35
Lads obviously a talent but I'd give it a miss to be honest! Do we really want someone who goes AWOL from his club the minute he doesn't get his way! Is he going to come in the summer and score a few goals then demand to leave in January? Just my opinion but I'd stay away from him!

Agree0 0Disagree

17 Apr 2017 13:44:29
I believe he was being forced into signing a contract that was not in his interest and club were acting like sevco say no more. I think also wanted him to switch agents etc etc so he took action to protect himself from the dodgy antics. Treating a 19 year old kid who is away from his home and family in this way is appalling. I would welcome this guy at our great club.

Bang on kwaj take him in a heartbeat. I live where it's epl this epl that Rodgers slagged cos Liverpool are shite but for me hers the point Rodgers 1st n foremost is a coach and makes players better . Armstrong dembele Sinclair to name a few us as a club would be seen as a stepping stone and tbf rightly so look at Forster wanyama van dijk but not only are we a stepping stone we're now a team with a manager who's can say come to us yes u may be good and may one day get your move to big money but I'll also make you a better player.

That's the point JadMock it was the same ref that deemed the Motherwell player's challenge on Tierney a yellow card so same ref different decisions.
