Looks like the Chelsea - Gordon link is true. Sky sports saying Chelsea are preparing a bid. It'll probably take a high price for him to leave. I don't know if he'd want to sit on the bench at Chelsea for the money. Plus that would mean we would need a new goalkeeper ASAP.


1.) 26 Jan 2017 13:17:55
Gordon out of contract in the summer. Chelsea will probably try sign him on a pre contract deal.

{Ed007's Note - Celtic have a years option on Gordon's contract so technically he has 18 months left on his deal.}



22 Jan 2017 21:01:59
Heard we are after Malang Sarr of Nice. 17 year old, first full season and is a massive prospect. Hopefully this isn't just drivel. Seems a good player. CentreBack


1.) 22 Jan 2017 21:38:37
This would be mental. He's actually been playing regularly for a very good side at that age and has had some of Europe's top clubs watching him.

2.) 22 Jan 2017 21:52:18
Think it would take a lot to get him. If the rumours has any truth in it I'd imagine we're really pushing the boat out and actually trying to challenge top teams again! Hopefully this is what is going to happen. The onyekuru rumour aswell, seems a great player.

3.) 22 Jan 2017 22:42:24
It was reported by one of those "Ex-Agent" types on Twitter so I'd definitely take it with a pinch of salt. Would be terrific though!

4.) 23 Jan 2017 11:43:23
I'd like to think you're right Ken. My guess would be that Sarr will be valued at an 8-digit figure though.

As for Onyekuru, the Express (quite reliable as far as papers go) reckon that Eupen want £3-4m for him. Always makes me wonder how a paper would know that, but I'd gladly pay that figure for him. He mainly plays on the left but if he was ok playing on the right he'd be miles ahead of Forrest for me. As would Paddy though if we signed him permanently. One of the two would do me just fine.

5.) 23 Jan 2017 13:02:54
I agree JimTim and Kev! The right side of the pitch is definetley an area we need to strengthen. Wether that be in permanently signing Paddy Roberts, or pushing the boat out and signing a prospect or a proven Right Winger. We need something in that area, especially for the European Qualifiers in the summer

6.) 23 Jan 2017 13:46:31
Forrest's position stands out like a skid mark on a bed sheet for me in terms of a signing.

7.) 23 Jan 2017 21:54:20
Spot on Jim n ken, Roberts needs to start every game, we will be able to get him for a good fee, ed confirmed city wouldn't be difficult to deal with, certainly in terms of his future value 5 to 6 million would be a steal, he would be well worth it, magic player.

As for other signings, happy with whoever Brendan brings in, we r now looking at a better class of player n paying better wages for the right type of player, Ed n a few others have been banging on about this for a while n u not only get a better quality of player but if team improvss n competition for places improvss n it's a win win.
Hail hail

8.) 23 Jan 2017 22:56:31
Re Roberts. Its not about City being hard to deal with that's the issue, its another cash rich lower EPL teams paying more money than we can! You look at some of the fees teams down there pay for average English players in some cases just to have enough in the squad to meet the homegrown rules (ie City with Delph and Sinclair) . It will be a tough if not impossible ask IMO to get him pernamently but I would definitely settle with another season loan

{Ed007's Note - I don't think City would stand in Roberts' way for the sake of a couple of million quid if he wanted to come to Celtic. Drop a mention of the good relationship we have and get Pedro's son to have a word.... #UnseenFenianHand

9.) 24 Jan 2017 15:41:51
roberts saying in the manchester evening news he wants to return to city.



04 Jan 2017 18:01:12
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.


{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.


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.


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.

Not Celtic related but I seen Timalloy on aboot Cheltenham. I fancy a punt on my tent or yours in the 3:30 at Cheltenham today. His previous record in that race is impressive and going by what's in front of him I can see a big run. I've got him each way in my lucky 15 if anyone is interested in the racing. 16/ 1.


1.) 14 Mar 2017 12:59:01
@KenLikeEh great minds think alive (or fools seldom differ lol) had an each way punt on it also
I also had an each way bet on the New One 3.30 both horses been around Cheltenham before.
Guys if betting for first time most bookmakers online offer free bets to new customers eg deposit £30 and they match it shop around.

2.) 14 Mar 2017 14:50:07
A long shot for next year but how about 'Pedro at the chapel' to win?
I'd imagine the best chance of a pay out would be a a bookies who pays on five places.

3.) 14 Mar 2017 18:02:47
2 disagrees lol.

4.) 15 Mar 2017 09:50:37
Make that 4 Pud 😂 Really is annoying that people hit the dislike button for a reason. I got my EW winnings anyway 🙂.

5.) 15 Mar 2017 09:31:17
@timalloy - I've sent a couple of tips I received from a work colleague who got it from friend for Cheltenham tomorrow onto the bets rumours page. Big prices ( 10's and 25's ) . Told to bet them as an each way double. I haven't bet / followed the horses in years so couldn't tell you how good the info supposedly is. I've bet £4 each way double.

6.) 15 Mar 2017 10:17:25
I'm also having a Punt on Kalondra in the 3rd race at cheltenham today Timalloy. Not as confident in this one though.



27 Feb 2017 18:29:41
Wonder how long it will be until Hazard is called up from the development squad. Seems like a great keeper.


1.) 27 Feb 2017 19:11:32
Or should I say a keeper in the making.



22 Feb 2017 12:34:12
What are the chances of Costil on a free ED? Heard Gordon's contract talks have postponed until the summer? Has this anything to do with the possibility of Costil or is it irellevant? I'd have Costil at parkhead in a heartbeat especially on a Free, I'd imagine his wages would be around the 30k mark though.


{Ed007's Note - I wouldn't be surprised at all if we're interested in Costil but Fiorentina who thought they had a deal done in the summer will probably make another move along with Nice which the player would prefer as it means he stays in France.}

1.) 22 Feb 2017 13:03:04
Didn't Rogers rubbish that link last week?

2.) 22 Feb 2017 15:11:20
Rodgers may have rubbished it Kev but it means keeping Gordon's confidence high at this stage of the season? I see ED, would be a great player to pick up.



12 Feb 2017 16:38:45
ED, do you think that eboue will be ready for his first appearance anytime soon? Excited to see what he is like.


{Ed007's Note - No, Rodgers has said not to expect to see Eboue anytime soon.}

1.) 12 Feb 2017 17:23:51
Has he been playing development games or just training?

{Ed007's Note - Just training mate, I can't see him listed in any recent development squads for matches.

“He wasn’t one I was going to bring in and pitch straight in to the side. He was always going to take time to adapt to the country and fitness. He has not played for a while. He has done a little training and was in Dubai with us, but there were some restrictions with his work permit and stuff.
He has done some work here but I am not putting a timeline on it right now. We’ll see how he is. The team is doing really well, but he will make it very competitive for places."



10 Feb 2017 16:25:01
Kasper Dolberg looks like a good player. 18 year old at Ajax. Striker, seeing that the Dutch market is full of talent. An area id think we should look into a lot more.


1.) 10 Feb 2017 17:12:32
Sure he was being scouted by man utd with a view to a mega transfer.

Fifa ratings are drivel by all means haha. I wouldn't even think about looking at them. The amount of info on young players that they have is terrible. I'd imagine it would be permanent, can't see Rodgers bringing in loan players. Apparently he doesn't like that.

Get him playing out wide I'm sure he could adapt easily to the RW position. Seems a great young player who needs some first team football.

The fact is if Chelsea want him we should be asking for at least double or treble that.

I think that because Maddison is out of the picture christie will have a lot of opportunity at Aberdeen and would start every game. Really think that valuable game time under Aberdeen will be beneficial to him. He would start in any team in the league bar us, him and tierney are the best Scottish youngsters in Scotland and I really think he'll grow into a great player. If he had Tierneys strength he'd be even better. I think that's something he'll be working on under Rodgers.

Union Jack you really need to have a look at yourself. That Miller challenge is a more disgusting favour than dembeles dive. Seen it for years. Dirty players come from angles of the game but that had potential to be a career ending challenge. Coming from a traitor in blue.

One thing I really like about Paddy is that his little offloaded passing is absolutley deadly. It's something that seems very hard to pick up in the Scottish game and isn't dealt with easily. I'd imagine Forrest will get 60 minutes then Paddy will come on. Really hope we get him for another season, if not another RW is desperately needed.

Yes Rodgers confirmed that Forrest is back in training and has trained all week.
