The name "Jean-Kevin Duverne" is being thrown around. Heard we're linked with signing him. No idea if it's true or not, just what I've heard.

KenLikeEh

{Ed007's Note - I was speaking to someone earlier about Duverne and was told that Lens have said Celtic, Red Star, Lille, Newcastle, Rennes, Lyon, Sunderland and Spurs have looked at him this season but he has only got in the first team this season and it would be seen as an enormous jump to move elsewhere and play.}


1.) 04 Jan 2017 18:42:28
Read about this kid a while ago with Newcastle linked. Compared to Varane - not bad. The story at the time was Lens weren't interested in selling though. Might not be the case now.


2.) 04 Jan 2017 18:51:41
Maybe he's an option for replacement of boyata/ efe? But I'd imagine we'd be looking at players that can make an instant impact even with sviatchenko and simunovic holding there position!


3.) 05 Jan 2017 09:12:38
If we shipped Boyata and Ambrose this window, brought in Duverne, added to Erik, Jozo and Kolo that should be enough. Come the summer, we might decide to let Kolo go, which would free up some wages for a more established CB. By which time though, Duverne and Simunovic may have come on a fair bit.

I think if we see another player this window it will be an attacker. Get them up and running for the CL qualifiers. By then Roberts could well be away and Forrest, when you look at his goals return compared to those around him, stands out as a position that needs improving.


4.) 05 Jan 2017 17:32:35
A don't want to see big kolo leave, he's a good role model for youngsters, but apart from that he's good cover.


 

 

03 Nov 2016 22:11:12
See we had a scout at the Benfica game the other night "apparently". Who's this boy been scouting for the last 5 years 😂 Or is he just a benfica fan? Talk of lindelof, there is no chance he will be a Celtic player! Unless Rodgers can literally produce magic. Harry Potter style.

KenLikeEh

1.) 03 Nov 2016 23:17:49
He is one of the most mysterious scouts in our network but not the most successful. I'm guessing it's an expat/ timesharer and benfica is the nearest club. Must have sway with a few of the higher up or that punt on balde wouldn't of happened. Stab in the dark but I'm going for Parks brother in law :)


2.) 03 Nov 2016 23:18:58
When the signing goes tits up blame the invisible man.


3.) 04 Nov 2016 12:29:09
To be expected! But really think Rodgers had a good idea of what is needed and where, that's CM spot needs filled. I'm pretty sure we'll have the player we need in January. This team we currently have isn't far off challenging anywhere. I'd definetley see our chances in the europa leauge at this current stage. Seeing that fenerbhace are beating united 😂.


4.) 04 Nov 2016 13:24:57
Funny I would have thought Fenerbace beating Manchester United would make the UEFA league more competitive.


 

 

06 Aug 2016 12:10:59
Very happy with the signing of Scott Sinclair, at least the club is going in the right direction! But on the topic of the 1-2 other players Brendan wants in before the sheva game, does anyone have a clue? I see word of Duljevic is circulating, but this is practically Twitter talking. Not a good source.

KenLikeEh

1.) 06 Aug 2016 12:42:14
Talk of McNair, but i hope it is a surprise, better that way.


2.) 06 Aug 2016 13:25:43
A goalkeeper is next apparently, and well down the line in negotiations, no names yet, but Joronen from Fulham and Vorm (unlikely) from Spurs have been mentioned.


3.) 06 Aug 2016 14:24:49
have heard mcnair being mentioned myself but do we really need another central defender with O'Connell Toure there already and Sviatchenko back in training Simunivic probably back soon.


4.) 06 Aug 2016 14:35:20
McNair would not make us any better IMVHO

No harm to the lad.


5.) 06 Aug 2016 15:08:54
Russian agent at C. P. Today, Skinny or anyone else heard anything?


6.) 06 Aug 2016 15:35:02
All signing mcnair will do is hold back oconnell and Ajer.
Our central defence is stronger than its been in a while.


7.) 06 Aug 2016 15:57:45
Agree Kev.


8.) 06 Aug 2016 16:15:29
A think McNair will be our DM the one that will break up the play alongside brown McNair hardly ever wastes anything very good passer short or long unlike brown 🙄.


9.) 06 Aug 2016 17:23:53
To be fair Jimmy, if brown played the way he did against Astana every game i'd have 0 complaints! But that's a long shot Haha. Hopefully a DM or a GK will come in, but chances are we won't see another keeper on the level of Fraser Forster for a long time. What a player!


10.) 06 Aug 2016 17:41:17
Like I said would hold our youth back because that's what Ajer was brought in for.


11.) 06 Aug 2016 19:21:50
Really depends who is brought in kev. An experienced DM would surely be a benefit in teaching players the ropes? And in all honesty I'm a massive fan of Ajer, not many players that can say they captained there club (Start) at 17. He'll be a great player, hopefully the answer were looking for.


12.) 06 Aug 2016 20:37:15
Ajer was signed by RD AS A DM! Rodgers has played the boy at CB because he thinks his future is at CB! Ajer could be the answer to our CM/ CDM problem but he is still young!


13.) 06 Aug 2016 21:01:59
KenlikeEh we were talking about mcnair not an experienced DM.


 

 

21 Jul 2016 10:44:27
TV reporting today that we are after St. Juste, is this is true I'd be more than happy with him as a signing. Seems like a solid player, could be our next van dijk. I hope so anyway. Anyone heard word of Duffy/ Sinclair?

KenLikeEh

1.) 21 Jul 2016 10:51:48
He's meant to be a really good player. He's only 5ft 11; next to Sviatchenko might leave us lacking height.


2.) 21 Jul 2016 10:59:28
Height doesn't really come into it. Timing of the jump and Spring can get someone in a better position than a tall guy. Eric's good in the air and he's not 6 ft and Larsson wasn't the tallest and he was excellent at winning headers so don't read into height too much unless he's the same height as Giovinco 5ft odds.


3.) 21 Jul 2016 11:27:56
Canavaro and puyol where both under 6 foot.


4.) 21 Jul 2016 11:40:45
Would still prefer big dominant CB who can play as well Jozo fits bill but he needs to get fit and compete with other CB s.


5.) 21 Jul 2016 11:50:03
Even will jozo full fit we need at least one but ad prefer two new CBS.


6.) 21 Jul 2016 12:29:38
Cannavaro and puyol I think may be slightly above what we're looking at. Sviatchenko struggles at times. I'm not saying I don't want the guy, just would like someone you always knew would win the ball.


7.) 21 Jul 2016 13:05:53
St Juste is apparently very strong in the air, good awareness at the back and handy going forward. Sounds like a VVD mark 2.


8.) 21 Jul 2016 13:06:54
was mjallby not under 6ft?


9.) 21 Jul 2016 13:31:16
No he was 6 foot 1.


10.) 21 Jul 2016 13:38:09
cheers kev, always looked a bit shorter but then he was built like a brick s--thouse, would love to find another defender like mjallby, loved him in the hoops.


11.) 21 Jul 2016 15:19:27
I'd prefer a varga. Guy was massive and could pass a ball as good as anyone.
Only thing he had missing was pace.


12.) 21 Jul 2016 21:06:05
same old nonsense, same board broken promises i feelsorry for Rodgers.


13.) 21 Jul 2016 13:12:11
Ed007 I'm waiting for you to extinguish this rumour lol. Is St. Juste too much to expect?

{Ed007's Note - Not necessarily, although it's a long shot.}


14.) 21 Jul 2016 22:21:11
Man u were reportedly looking at him last year, do we see something that they didn't, although, he is still very young and maybe could be developed into a top player, and they might have been looking for a more finished article, thing is if we get him and he makes a few costly mistakes we have to remember he he is just a young guy, and let's not be too hard on him.


15.) 22 Jul 2016 00:39:24
One of the best centre halfs in the buisness played for Aberdeen he was 5ft 10 in tall quick strong and kept a few better technically guifted players out of the Scotland team.

Mainly because he had a hardness about him that not many players have today we had a player a couple of seasons ago who resembled him not VVD who was and is top class but get him in.


16.) 23 Jul 2016 00:00:30
sure if we had Ajer playing midfield, a couple of players could give him a wee lift and he could clear any high dead ball situation.

Heard Gerard Delofeu is out of favour at Everton and is allowed to leave if a suitable offer comes in. They paid 4 million i think? (don't quote me on that) . Think he would be a quality player to pick up for the RW spot. Not to sure what his price tag would be though. Just a thought ken like eh

He's got quality. Question marks over his goals return though. BR was saying just last week that players up that end need to score goals. Happy Birthday for the weekend by the way.


3.) 20 Jan 2017 12:24:53
Good point MP! That's true don't think his goal to game ration is anywhere near impressive to be fair, could change under the right management though! Cheers JimTim!

Read yesterday that an SPFL lawyer admitted in court that the oldco had been using tax evasion schemes since 1989.was this not the begining of their nine tainted titles in a row? . does anyone know what the football authorities plan to do about this i. e stripping of titles, cups etc. an unfair sporting advantage was obvisouly gained which surely brings sporting integrity into question! Or do they plan not to serve any punishment on the oldco?

2.) 19 Jan 2017 17:12:00
Here is a player that would be massive but would we be happy coming on loan for a short while? Inesta could he settle into that side we have or would that be stopping the development of Rogic?

Looks like biton will be surplus to requirement when eboues work permit goes through, hopefully squeeze a few million out of either a championship or la liga team. That's where I'd imagine he'd go. Espanyol were previously interested apparently.

KenLikeEh

1.) 11 Jan 2017 10:51:51
A think he'd be more suited to a slower game, he's definitely got technique. Miby a bottom half premiership team.


2.) 11 Jan 2017 12:01:49
bottom half junior team more like lol.


3.) 11 Jan 2017 12:05:22
I highly doubt any Premiership team would be interested in him Stephbhoy.


4.) 11 Jan 2017 17:36:32
Bitons that slow he could play at centre half for the Huns beside Clint (over the) Hill 🍀


5.) 11 Jan 2017 19:01:03
A think some of u r doing him a bit of a disservice. He just doesn't suit the way Rodgers plays, he is slow your right but some systems will benefit his game. The bottom half of the premiership ain't all that. Some of the games are pure dross.


6.) 11 Jan 2017 19:13:09
walking football would suit him.


7.) 11 Jan 2017 19:27:30
Heartless bastard wanted with no balls and feart of a challenge. Pace not necessary either. Well-that's the advert placed for anybody that's looking at him 🍀

Too feckn fast JB67 🍀


9.) 11 Jan 2017 22:09:34
I agree! At one point he was playing well that's why he got his new contract! He's to inconsistent and isn't the CM we need, armstrong is there but I reckon he'll be moved into CAM when eboue signs and rogic will be the rotation. I reckon we'll sign 2 maybe three players this window, and I still think the Right Wing needs a bit of improvement. Forrest isn't exactly consistent himself even tho he's had a decent half season. Roberts is there but he will be gone in 5 months and we really have no back up there after that, id imagine that's the position Rodgers would be looking to strengthen next in my opinion.


10.) 11 Jan 2017 22:30:30

10 Jan 2017 10:49:03
Apparently Kolo is being used as a sort of scout? Do you think this might be his job role with Celtic after this season if it is true?

Is there any truth in this Ed?

{Ed007's Note - First I've heard of it, Toure didn't know who Eboue was until Brendan Rodgers spoke to him about the youngster.}


1.) 10 Jan 2017 16:13:00
Someone's probably taken it out of context and related back to the youth systems in the Ivory Coast where players like Toure and Gervinho etc came from. Not to sure

Joe mchugh wrote it on video celts ed, a had a look there. The headline was kolos special role or something like that but it didn't mention any quotes from Rodgers that said anything about scouting role for kolo.

{Ed007's Note - Cheers, Steph got it. I had read THIS which has a bit more from Rodgers in it.}


 

 

21 Dec 2016 16:07:28
One thing that really annoys me about football in general is when a player makes a couple of mistakes, been an absolute solid player all season, but that one mistake throws everyone off. I'm talking in regards of simunovics performance last night. Seen a lot of Celtic Fans on Twitter slagging him off. This lot evidentially don't watch every game and must not be that obsessed with Celtic like most of us. Put it this way, he's nowhere near the class that is ambrose for making mistakes. Still young, and is a real talent. I'd be more than happy with sviatchenko and simunovic in our squad playing at the back for the long run.

KenLikeEh

{Ed007's Note - It's the main reason that not many youngsters make it at Celtic. A large section of the support immediately want players dropped or even sold for making a mistake or missing a chance in front of goal. They don't give the youngsters time to learn and develop and unless you play like Messi every week you're classed as not good enough.
I was delighted to see us win with a team containing only 5/6 first team 'regulars' last night, it shows the depth of our squad and I'd rather see players like McGregor or Henderson than Bitton in the team.}

Pipe down mate. I thought he was rotten against Dundee too but that's just my view

Him and shevi IMVHO are a little soft centred and need to learn to growl and snarl a little more


I'm with you, they get more right than wrong which is a step in the right direction BUT just as too many are too quick to condemn, many many are far too quick to glorify

Boyh persuasions are inaccurate and unhelpful.

It always amazes me how many champion the fact the lions all came from Glasgow but seem to write off Scottish talent as soon as they have a below par performance.

Nothing makes me more impressed than a home grown Scottish player who cuts it a the top level.

Players such as macgegor will make mistakes from time to time but give their all when they're on the pitch.
Last night we had home grown players developing their skills and getting a result.

As for Simo - young player we will do well to keep. For me, one of the best bits of the last transfer window was his failed medical.

Hail Hail.


6.) 23 Dec 2016 12:14:07
I thought janko deserved a chance but after the HBS game he got slated on here and fired out on loan.

It's a shame it seems the youth players at celtic have to hit the ground running like Tierney and if they don't there up against it.
