The s*n reporting Eboue went to a Glasgow hospital with suspected malaria! Out now and apparently given the all clear.

Kevbhoy

{Ed007's Note - Aye, Kev. He had 'suspected Malaria' but was well enough to train today...... I smell BS buddy.}


1.) 24 Jan 2017 00:19:26
Must be that Russian strain.


 

 

21 Jan 2017 18:57:03
Ed, any idea whether the Henry Onyekuru rumour is legit? It would appear there's definitely some substance to it if the player has brought it up publicly, although that can tend to backfire on players.

Kevbhoy

{Ed007's Note - I don't know of any bid but if there is it will be a bit of a mess as their is a third party issue - Onyekuru is only part owned by his club KAS along with a sports company in Qatar which is illegal in the UK.}


1.) 21 Jan 2017 19:30:04
Cheers. I was reading that the talent agency who own the player also own the club so it's basically a front to showcase their clients. All seems a bit dodgy but he looks really good either way.

{Ed007's Note - He looks a cracking player, Kev.}


2.) 21 Jan 2017 22:21:19
I've heard don't no if it's true though that they in no way will they sell to Celtic because they want a megabucks deal


3.) 21 Jan 2017 23:49:57
It's very possible the "Celtic bid" is just a tactic to force other team's hands who actually have a genuine interest in him Replicas. He definitely looks a player but there's something a bit off about a player speaking in such detail about bids etc. to the media. I remember a few years back we pulled out of a deal for an Israeli because him and his club were singing to the press before the deal was 100% done.


4.) 21 Jan 2017 23:07:34
I know the daily record is no the best for true stories. KJ was talking about and his words were that he thinks Celtic will do a major significant piece of business this window and that KJ seems to think it's been lined up for a while. Do you think that he is full of crap or is there something in it?


5.) 22 Jan 2017 00:30:57
Kev hopefully it's us that gets him if he's a player I've not seen anything of him but hate this 3rd party stuff we'll just have to wait and see


6.) 22 Jan 2017 01:41:40
theres been rumours in the last couple of weeks about a 5m player coming in possibly a playmaker, but its probably the usual transfer window made up crap.


7.) 22 Jan 2017 08:42:21
@Replicas, It may be that the club technically own him and the talent agency only represent him so it might not be as messy as 3rd party ownership. Then again it could be a red-tape nightmare.


8.) 22 Jan 2017 10:42:02
Just watched a few clips of him, looks a class act, capable of playing across the front line. Still think we'll see one more player come in before the window closes a few outgoings too.


 

 

18 Jan 2017 18:56:40
A couple of papers/ websites linking us with Tosin Adarabioyo, CB from Man City. I'm sure he played against us at the Etihad in December. 19 years old and an England youth cap.

Kevbhoy

1.) 18 Jan 2017 21:32:48
He's was a bomb scare.


2.) 19 Jan 2017 08:10:45
Sounds like there might be something in it then! Haha.


 

 

10 Nov 2016 15:16:07
I know it's early days but has anybody heard of any potential movement in January besides James McCarthy? The club played their cards very close to their chest in the summer so we may not hear much until deals are nearly pushed through.

Kevbhoy

{Ed007's Note - McCarthy is Rodgers No.1 target for January and as I said the other week Celtic are one of the clubs who have contacted Everton about signing him.}


1.) 10 Nov 2016 15:59:11
Hope it's true ed think him and broony would make a great pairing, but will come down to money as per or maybe a season loan.

{Ed007's Note - I can't see Everton agreeing to a loan, they want him sold. The main problem I foresee is how much Everton want for him but the player could well dig his heels in and demand a move to Celtic by letting Everton know they can either sell him to us or have an unhappy player who is surplus to requirements but contracted to them until 2020.
I'm quietly confident that McCarthy will be a Celtic player by the time next season's CL qualifiers kick off.}


2.) 10 Nov 2016 16:03:22
Do you think we'll be busy Ed? I know people like the idea of a settled team for qualifiers but January is notoriously difficult to find good players or good prices. I don't see us buying for the sake of it and McCarthy on his own would be a major coup.

{Ed007's Note - I think we'll be busy trying to get players moved on more than on incoming signings, Kev.}


3.) 10 Nov 2016 16:03:45
Kevbhoy u are right, we don't give much information about possible signings until the deal is near done and I for one like that, as it stops many different cases of disappointment .

I am far from sure about Mc Carthy, on the basis of his international form he is not the type of midfielder I would want and I don't think he would fit into the midfield engine that B R wants . He isn't mobile enough, he wins the ball and plays a short pass but doesn't make himself available . I think people are judging him on the potential he showed at Hamilton .
I hope I am wrong, I always like to see a Celtic player playing for ROI.


4.) 10 Nov 2016 16:05:57
Any idea of the terms Ed? Loan, buy, loan to buy? Wait and see?

{Ed007's Note - Everton don't want a loan deal but anything can happen.}


5.) 10 Nov 2016 16:53:47
Thanks.

Going back to the player digging his heels in. I like to think he'd want to come. In the most respectful way I don't think there's anything left for him in England. Come home, enjoy your prime, become a hero and be part of 10 in a row. Or stay at Everton or a club of a similar ilk and go through the motions.

{Ed007's Note - It's a no-brainer for me, JT.}


6.) 10 Nov 2016 18:39:07
Spot on Jim Tim. That prospect could be a tantalising lure for other targets normally out of our reach.


7.) 10 Nov 2016 19:41:30
Hope it's permanent deal if any ed, disagree with OB I think he is mobile and is a good passer also reads game well and decent in the tackle would do for me.


8.) 10 Nov 2016 19:44:11
I think he would be a great signing. We need a DM, he fits the bill and wants to sign. I can't understand the criticism. Hope you are recovering well old bhoy but what exactly do you want a good dm to do? Against good opposition I'd be quite happy for him to win tackles and keep possession. For the last few years he has played against some great players and has done well in lower teams if you will call them that. I'd still take him if the years were rolled back and he was putting in similar preformances at that age in the spl. Difference is he moved and for a long time was a first 11 player in the epl. It's a no brainer for me if he wants to play here for a deal of say 5m with addons. We have wasted that again and again. Brown limped off with a dead leg the other day (I thought it was worse and I think it is) and I $hat a brick because we still don't have direct cover.


9.) 11 Nov 2016 09:17:00
It must certainly be an attractive prospect to a Celtic fan Rab (yes)


10.) 11 Nov 2016 17:33:41
Mallythetally . Have u watched him playing for the ROI over his last half dozen games or so . Do you think he has played well. ?
If so I think you are setting the bar very low and although I want him at Celtic B R will have to do a lot of work with him .


11.) 12 Nov 2016 07:51:36
If you think his signing would be setting the bar too low, as indeed I do. Why want BR to sign him at all? The money it would take simply because of the over rated over priced league he is in suggest to me a better, younger player could be found.

I have always thought McCarthy a good player but never a great one.


12.) 12 Nov 2016 22:32:00
Magicpole This forum is on the road to hell, we are in total agreenent.


13.) 13 Nov 2016 10:55:07
The world shifted on it's axis Old Bhoy. :)


14.) 13 Nov 2016 19:26:35
Magicpole, we won't sign McCarthy, he is a red herring
Yesterday ROI beat Austria and with for the most part a new midfield pairing of Myler and Arher . A fit McCarthy wouldn't get on ROI team now .


15.) 14 Nov 2016 09:59:12
I'm just not convinced he would take us to a level that the money to secure him should do. But, we will need to stop agreeing, people will start talking. :)


 

 

28 Sep 2016 14:23:17
I've heard that we are considering going for Snodgrass in January as he is out of contract. He's on top form atm and will be very popular but also is a massive Celtic fan. Any idea if:
a) It's true

b) There's any chance?

Kevbhoy

1.) 28 Sep 2016 15:28:15
Would love this if true.


2.) 28 Sep 2016 17:32:55
Don't know if it's true or if there is a chance but I'd take him no bother.
Really good player.


3.) 29 Sep 2016 09:58:01
Could be true. Hopefully be good to see him playing for his bhoy hood heroes.


4.) 29 Sep 2016 10:12:55
I'd have him but wouldn't be bothered I'd we don't tbh.


5.) 30 Sep 2016 11:00:12
Who would we drop if we signed snodgrass . because I don't think with they way we are playing just now he would get in our team.

I'm massively looking forward to getting the football back on at the weekend. Hopefully the team will be well rested and pick up where they left off. If that's the case we could dish out a real hammering and send a warning to the rest. I fancy Griff to bag a hat-trick!

Kevbhoy

1.) 18 Jan 2017 20:16:38
knowing rodgers with his one up front boredom griffiths will probably be a sub. for me a 40 goal a season man must play up front with dembele.


2.) 18 Jan 2017 21:47:36
JB67-that's twice we've agreed tonight 😀👍🍀


3.) 18 Jan 2017 22:16:46
great minds think alike jfp that's what happens when we've been brought up on the all out attacking football we watched from the jungle i miss that old place.


4.) 19 Jan 2017 08:07:23
I have to disagree with you both on this one. I've been wanting them both up front as well but the few times it's happened we've played poorly and actually scored less goals than we do with just one striker. The team plays far more fluid and exciting football in BR's preferred system and I'd prefer that over trying to shoehorn in a second striker just for the sake of it.


5.) 19 Jan 2017 11:53:37
so what your saying is if a guy scores 40 goals a season keep him on the bench? the two of them can play together no problem, they just need a run of games together to fine tune their partnership, all i see when i watch this one up boredom is the main striker being isolated and he also gets outnumbered by the opposition back four as he has no one to link up with and help him out.


 

 

15 Jan 2017 01:13:49
I haven't had a sniff of a rumour for the past week! Anybody got any info at all? Ed? I reckon we'll bring in 2 more but probably in the last few days.

Kevbhoy

1.) 15 Jan 2017 08:21:11
Have to admit, the club do a great job of keeping things under wraps. The gutter rags just end up guessing names but I am intrigued as to who we will bring in. Like you I think maybe two more, presumably another centre back as we are releasing a few, but izzy keeps getting linked away as well.

But I thought br wanted a no 10 type in the summer . Hopefully he can pull a couple of exciting players in to add to what he's already built. I'd have thought ed would have had some info but even he seems quiet .


2.) 15 Jan 2017 10:26:29
With Eboue coming in, Armstrong could fill that number 10 spot.


3.) 15 Jan 2017 11:28:29
Ed. I read this morning that we are trying to get Roberts loan extended for another season. is there any truth in this?

{Ed007's Note - Rodgers wants Roberts to stay, wether that's another loan or permanent isn't clear yet.}


4.) 15 Jan 2017 12:15:55
Please don't move Armstrong he playing out of his skin,
Only Ronnie would move him lol.
I think we need a player for the right wing in the same mould as Sinclair and we would destroy teams.
Forrest is too inconsistent and Roberts is probably off in the summer.
If being greedy a CH would be good as well.


5.) 15 Jan 2017 14:09:39
I'm with you rayman I keep hearing posters on here wanting him in the no 10 position but can't understand why.


6.) 15 Jan 2017 14:27:41
I find that strange Ed as BR rarely plays Roberts.

{Ed007's Note - Roberts has made 28 appearances this season.}


7.) 15 Jan 2017 17:09:10
Its reported as an additional season lone extension, not a permanent move unfortunately.


8.) 15 Jan 2017 17:54:05
Yeah but 5 minutes off the bench counts as an appearance Ed. BR's first choice wingers are Forrest and Sinclair and Roberts starts the majority of games on the bench.


9.) 15 Jan 2017 18:43:14
However most of us know that Roberts should be starting ahead of Forrest, form wise Roberts is in better form, creates more n is more deadly at scoring as well as his link up play.

He has also had more impact with less game time than wee james in my opinion n will star in our team when played regular which I feel is starting with him being in the side these last few games n also champions league has always looked good at that level, whereas for me wee james goes missing.


 

 

09 Jan 2017 20:53:36
Any update on the Eboue work permit? From the noises the club are making, it's gone to appeal and they're completely confident it'll go through but what's the normal timescale for this? Another day or two?

Kevbhoy

1.) 09 Jan 2017 23:19:31
Apparently it's finalised that's why eboue is travelling back to Russia to sort himself out before moving to Glasgow. Another day or two before the official signing.

This is only what I've heard tho so might be a bit of Chinese whispers going on!


2.) 10 Jan 2017 03:25:35
BR is talking the boy up a fair bit, sounds like an exciting player.


3.) 10 Jan 2017 11:10:48
Havn't really seen the boy much, but I wanted a ball winning CM, particularly for Europe where the turnover of possession is so important. Getting him in now, up and running will be ideal. The fact he can supposedly play a bit too is a bonus.


4.) 10 Jan 2017 12:57:57
apparently he's signed now work permit went through


5.) 10 Jan 2017 16:03:38
Just reading some comments from his agent there though. Whilst I fully accept the reality of it all, I'm not a fan of him saying that we're a stepping stone - before he's even kicked a ball! You just keep your head down Kouassi and remember you have to earn those moves by giving this team 100%.


6.) 10 Jan 2017 17:57:57
Big wanyama said the same if a remember right Jim. It's the way they see it mate n it's probably how celtic put it to them, there should be someone from pr telling them how to word it tho cos it's not so endearing.


7.) 10 Jan 2017 20:13:48
Would rather have an honest player than a badge kisser


8.) 11 Jan 2017 00:31:08
Of course we are a stepping stone for players if they want to make it to the top eboue like wanyama not only wants to play in the champions league but maybe have a chance of winning it some day I for one have no issue with that providing they earn their moves by being successful with the hoops first.


9.) 11 Jan 2017 07:24:13
tell him to turkey off we are celtic not brechin, stepping stone? goosing cheeky bastard.


10.) 11 Jan 2017 08:16:01
See he has aspirations to become better than Pogba. The last player I remember likening himself to a player of that caliber and talking about us as a stepping stone was Mo Bangura


11.) 11 Jan 2017 08:29:41
I agree Digi, but it was his agent and not himself mind. I think that's what I didn't like.

Like I said I accept it's just the way it goes, but you might be right Steph, we might put it to young players like that. Almost a usp of our business model.


12.) 11 Jan 2017 12:07:51
ed i see you have used a poultry theme when you edited my above post you must have thought my language was FOWL just as well you didn't use a meat theme you might have said my language was OFFAL.

{Ed001's Note - nice one mate and well spotted. That is this week's swear theme. Be a different one next week though!}


13.) 11 Jan 2017 02:35:24
still no confirmation ed?

{Ed007's Note - Not yet mate.......


14.) 11 Jan 2017 21:32:25
its an agents job to sell players, then sell them again, and again and again.

so we are miffed at an agent. doing his job? (ie prepping for is next next move! )

they are lowlifes and don't care about football - just the $$$ but we have to get real and just accept that its part of our beautiful game now


15.) 12 Jan 2017 02:03:50
my point was digi that he hasn't even kicked a ball for us yet, you can expect that crap a season in but even before he's signed? that's just taking the piss.


 

 

07 Jan 2017 10:14:05
Are we playing a bounce game at all while out in Dubai? Seems like a decent idea as there are plenty of ex-pats out that way who'd love to see the hoops. It's not like Pedro to miss a trick where money is involved either.

Kevbhoy

1.) 07 Jan 2017 12:48:21
Pedro ain't calling the shots anymore buddy he would have to ask Brendan


2.) 07 Jan 2017 14:46:27
Even so, it doesn't seem like the worst idea. It couldn't do any harm having a friendly against a UAE XI or something.


3.) 07 Jan 2017 16:39:03
After so many games and only in January think we are better with a weeks rest and recharge the batteries


 

 

05 Jan 2017 16:44:48
West Ham have bid £20M for Dembele according to DR. Tell them to jog on!

Kevbhoy

1.) 05 Jan 2017 16:50:22
Jog on indeed. He'll do much better than west ham eventually.


2.) 05 Jan 2017 16:52:25
So it begins. Can't blame them for low-balling 😃. I wouldn't sell him now, for that. We can get more out of him in the hoops, and in time, more out of his suitor.


3.) 05 Jan 2017 17:15:16
is there any actual offer confirmed by either club?, don't believe it maself, why bid 20 mill when the EPL lowball us all the time.


4.) 05 Jan 2017 17:26:34
Am wae u bhoywonder just don't believe the record. Never have never will. Until it's confirmed by one of the club's or ed.


5.) 05 Jan 2017 17:33:06
W. H have confirmed on their own web page that they have bid 20m for a player from Scotland. Id say that's pretty much all you need tbh.


6.) 05 Jan 2017 17:50:54
Saying that I heard bilic is a big effe ambrose fan if carlsberg done transfer windows.


7.) 05 Jan 2017 18:06:33
Shug . You say West Ham site say they've made a £20m bid for a player from Scotland . For all we know it might be McKay or even Garner ✅.


8.) 05 Jan 2017 18:48:01
also says player from scotland, not player from scottish league, could be rhodes, mcormack etc.


9.) 05 Jan 2017 19:09:36
efe? lol.


10.) 05 Jan 2017 20:08:08
Do you think rhodes or mccormack are worth 20m
More than one paper reporting its dembele. However as ed has said its under their "insider" section on the page so how "official" is that. i suppose it will all come out in the wash.


11.) 05 Jan 2017 20:14:33
Maybe its a typo and we are paying WH 20 mil to take efe.


12.) 05 Jan 2017 20:14:39
Me? 🍀.

rglen8 I would say the calibre of player is more important than the fee. If we go for somebody who the fans can get excited about then it's a bonus if he's coming in on the cheap as well.

He's been away for a while now and surely made decent money, perhaps the lure of Champions League football and a few more trophies would do the trick as well as a nice wage.
