The Bruma link doesn't seem to be getting squashed so maybe there is a potential interest? Maybe depending on Boyata?


1.) 21 Aug 2018 21:49:24
I thought the player came out and squashed it himself Kev?

2.) 21 Aug 2018 22:03:47
No he said hed heard about the rumour but him and his agent haven't heard anything official.

3.) 21 Aug 2018 22:22:03
He did there no chance of it happening give boysts a second chance lads.

4.) 21 Aug 2018 22:32:05
He said nobody had been in contact yet but in no way ruled out a move.

5.) 21 Aug 2018 23:16:54
No way are we spending £7mil on a player when we don't have CL money coming in. Even if we do sell Boyata.

6.) 21 Aug 2018 23:42:55
The fact he said he’d heard about it but hasn’t received anything official suggests to me he might be interested.

Would love it to happen but I have a feeling we’re going to end up with Boyata still here come the end of the window.



16 Jul 2018 17:03:15
Supposedly we're "battling" Newcastle for Uruguay playmaker Giorgian De Arrascaeta who is valued at £18M. If that's his price then it's completely made up or he's not coming to us 👍🏻.


1.) 16 Jul 2018 17:20:59
I just read they paid 3.6 for him and are looking for over 5.

2.) 16 Jul 2018 17:30:24
Celts Are Here are saying they're wanting upwards of £5m for him.

{Ed007's Note - I can't see that, Monaco were ready to pay about 25 million Euros for him and he's not long signed a new contract with Cruzeiro as well with the aim of maximising his transfer fee.}

3.) 16 Jul 2018 19:41:08
Never going to happen. The wait for strengthening the side continues.

4.) 16 Jul 2018 19:54:04
We should be looking for defenders in South America, Argentinians or Uruguayans, cb’s and fb’s .

5.) 16 Jul 2018 20:37:40
It's alright saying that drewzy but remember it's harder for a work permit here than other countries.

{Ed007's Note - But it's easier in Scotland than it is in England.}

6.) 16 Jul 2018 21:46:08
He has an Italian passport according to Transfermarkt. wouldn't need a work permit. If the money is closer to £9 million we may be an interesting proposition for him. Im sure Suarez would rave about working with Rodgers.

7.) 16 Jul 2018 23:18:07
Not for long ed.

8.) 16 Jul 2018 23:55:28
I can't see it personally. Not with the squad atm. Maybe with the forthcoming chat we may look to offload Allen and Christie? And with possibly Mikey Johnston off on loan we will need someone capable of playing behind the striker in any position and signing McGinn too.

9.) 17 Jul 2018 08:02:24
I hope not, have you seen his videos does not look like a player of top quality. Even look where he places a shot, ever one is hit and hope. Compare it to Morgan's last season video night and day.

10.) 17 Jul 2018 11:36:44
With Liam Hendersons club folding I can see him going back to Hibs for noting which might make the McGinn transfer a bit easier.



02 Jul 2018 12:47:34
Jonathan Bamba has signed for Lille. He was suggested as a target for us a couple of weeks back.


1.) 02 Jul 2018 15:22:37
Getting slightly concerned that we are now no longer getting linked with players. Trimming the fat from the squad is all well and good but we need to getting players in and bedded into the team for the CL qualifiers. 1st round should be simple enough but we could be out after the 2nd round if we are not careful.

2.) 02 Jul 2018 16:04:49
Did anybody actually believe hr was a target?

Step away from the glue.

3.) 02 Jul 2018 16:07:04
For all the years I've been following Celtic. I can't recall them ever going out and spending serious cash from a position of strength.

4.) 02 Jul 2018 16:20:27
Happy what do you call what we just spent on edouard?

5.) 02 Jul 2018 16:32:19
I probably say this each window but I am sure we have players in mind and talks are going on about bringing them in. Personally at present I would like us to bring in 3 new players a CB a playmaker and a right back not so gifted at some on hear to mention names so not going to attempt to say who, But I hope there will be some movement. As to be honest present team good enough for the league but can't see us get far in CL IF we get that far depending on draw with the same players.

6.) 02 Jul 2018 17:17:05
Kev83 Less money we have took in for Armstrong.

Eduardo signing is superb doesn't strengthen last year's squad.

7.) 02 Jul 2018 18:16:47
@MagicPole why is it inconceivable that he would be a target?

8.) 02 Jul 2018 20:21:38
Happy I take it you where not a fan during the MON Days then?

9.) 02 Jul 2018 22:16:49
Only time we broke the biscuit tin mentality during MON. Was when the Zombies were in front.

Martin's first season was the only season we spent heavily.

I said from a position of strength. i've been going home/ away from late 80s. Can't recall anytime we've been in front. Serious money has been spent.

10.) 03 Jul 2018 11:02:55
We didn't pay anything for edouarde, van dijk payed for it, with the armstrong and erik money untouched.

11.) 03 Jul 2018 11:04:10
Bhoys all the rumour pish is coming from SMSM and if your worried then they've got you were they want all Celtic fans. Celtic will do business there's no doubt about it. The fact that we don't do our business like Sevcos supermarket sweep style doesn't mean we're not active in the market. Keep the faith bhoys HWG10IAR.

12.) 03 Jul 2018 11:07:25
Kev, the money he is on coupled with the money to buy him. Money. It’s always about the money.



12 Jun 2018 16:10:51
Ed, it was reported that Compper would be told whether he had a future at Celtic very shortly. Do you know if the club are wanting to just cut their losses and move him on?


{Ed007's Note - I was told a while ago that Compper will be moved this summer.}

1.) 12 Jun 2018 18:07:20
With a new CB cherry picked from whichever squad wins the World Cup?

2.) 12 Jun 2018 21:25:45
He might not get another pre season tour then? 🙄.

3.) 12 Jun 2018 23:55:33
Do you think if he moves on we will replace him Ed?

{Ed007's Note - Definitely mate, we must be looking to strengthen the CB position.}

4.) 12 Jun 2018 23:56:28
Im stilk not sold on Boyata imo. Ajer looks sound enough but it would be good to get a quality CB the help guide them both.

5.) 13 Jun 2018 13:37:15
Is there any news on any possible CB coming in?

6.) 13 Jun 2018 20:00:34
What about the Edouard potential move is there new update on that EDs?

{Ed007's Note - Not that I've heard.}



20 Apr 2018 23:01:21
New top leaked and looks horrible.


1.) 21 Apr 2018 00:41:45
I agree Kev. Not a fan of that single button or the white panels on the sleeves. NB have been a bit poor for me, personally.

{Ed007's Note - I'm on my tablet and can't upload pics on it (facepalm) I've messaged Ed033 to do it asap for me in the morning.}

2.) 21 Apr 2018 00:56:54
I gave it a go Ed 🤔.

3.) 21 Apr 2018 07:35:50
I think its a grower, its one of those tops that when you see the team all wearing it, itl look cracking. As always itl look much better without the sponser. Seems to be check or tartan shadowing going through it. The official description also says that comes with green socks, im not sure about that, prefer just plain white socks n shorts. As per, il buy it no matter, and these days its only for 1 season anyway. Overall, i quite like it, after the initial gasp😂🍀.

4.) 21 Apr 2018 07:39:36
The one with the white panels on sleeve is rotten. Could possibly be the 1st time i refuse to buy a home shirt if this is genuine. Surely to god the club have a say on any design, breaking up the hoops even on the sleeve is as bad as having blue and red on the shirt when we had Ford Peoples as sponsor.

5.) 21 Apr 2018 09:41:12
Hate it. The collar is snide. Why don’t we just stick to the round collar? Green socks too I hear. Another mistake.

6.) 21 Apr 2018 10:09:16
I agree Stan, like our history, hoops should not be broken. I didn't know it was green socks either. That's put it from about a 5 down to a 3/ 10 for me. If they wanted a button collar, they should use the same sort of collar as the pink kit last season or at least a proper grandfather collar with two or three buttons.

7.) 21 Apr 2018 10:47:49
Looks better than the leaked photo I seen earlier. I think the sponsor ruins it would've preferred if they had just stuck with the gold print like on the current home strip.

{Ed007's Note - The chequered pattern is very reminiscent of our centenary year top or is it just me that sees that? The neck, again it's a riot, if you have a thick/fat neck like me round necked tops look hideous imo so I won't be buying this one until it's on sale. I'm not spending £60 on a 'sittin' aboot tap'.
Even the collar from THIS Liverpool top would have been better.}

8.) 21 Apr 2018 10:54:44
I loved last seasons it was as close to the 67 kit as you are going to get. I will not be buying this. What are Celtic playing at allowing New Balance to break up the Hoops.

9.) 21 Apr 2018 11:12:04
Should have got Hummel. 😏.

{Ed007's Note - That was never going to happen, according to THIS, Hummel only "focus on the underdogs and characterful misfits of the sports world".
No laughing at the back there!}

10.) 21 Apr 2018 11:39:27
Sitting aboot tap haha.

{Ed007's Note - Like you don't know what I mean lol :-D

11.) 21 Apr 2018 20:34:48
These fitted tops do nothing for my bucky belly.




Kevbhoy's banter posts with other poster's replies to Kevbhoy's banter posts


21 Aug 2018 09:43:41
Put mildly, I'm very underwhelmed with Scott McKenna looking like our most likely CB target. If he takes Hendry's place I'd say that's definitely an improvement but we're flooding the team with inexperience. Boyata's future is still up in the air and even if he stays, I'm not 100% convinced he'll bring his good WC form back here, especially given the carry on with his agent etc.


1.) 21 Aug 2018 10:11:20
McKenna is Injured plus the ss will want a big fee they were quoting Swansea into double figures after they sold mawson for silly money. so expect a saga if the story is true which I am not convinced of.

2.) 21 Aug 2018 10:11:40
I can’t say my fear about our defence is eased with McKenna. Let’s hope we get someone better. There’s that word hope again.

3.) 21 Aug 2018 10:11:58
Don't think he's better than Hendry and he's injuried as well.

4.) 21 Aug 2018 10:21:07
Scott McKenna seriously! This is the same Scott McKenna that’s part of a defence who we routinely pump and so do sevco! If true then I have no words for how bad our scouting is! Went paid over a million for a diddy from Dundee, now probably treble that for a diddy from Aberdeen! I’m sure I remember Brendan Saying the words we’re only looking to bring quality in! Only us could be desperate for a centre half and think that signing an injured one from Aberdeen is a good idea! It’s just gets better honestly!

5.) 21 Aug 2018 10:43:28
For once I agree with you Lavie Heed. McKenna may look good at Aberdeen but it would be no where near the calibre of big Jef Bruma. Celtic must pursue Bruma he will add class and grit to the backline.

6.) 21 Aug 2018 11:04:32
Just because we pump a team doesn’t mean all of their players are terrible?

McKenna looks more like a proper CB but he should probably have been signed instead of Hendry. Whereas now it would appear we’re replacing Boyata with another young player.

I reckon the club are keeping tabs on him and would prefer him to have another year at Aberdeen but have maybe been forced into trying to get him this window because of other options falling through or maybe they didn’t expect Boyata to leave.

7.) 21 Aug 2018 11:30:58
McKenna only broke into the ss team half way through last season although am not 100o% sure,

8.) 21 Aug 2018 11:35:38
Lavie Heed! U think that up urself son? Thought ud a been at school the day 🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️ And I don’t need you to agree with me thanks very much, in fact I’d rather u didn’t 😂😂😂.

9.) 21 Aug 2018 11:47:09
Please tell me you didn't come on here and call someone lavie heed? 😂.

10.) 21 Aug 2018 12:10:50
He’s still got his knickers in a twist from the other day kev83.its took him that long to come up with that! 🙈🙈😂😂.

11.) 21 Aug 2018 12:13:04
If the interest is genuine would not be shocked to see us offer them Allan and Christie. We won't be going anywhere near Aberdeens valuation, not even half of it.

12.) 21 Aug 2018 12:16:24
ok Lavie Heed I don’t agree with you. Although our opinion is similar in Surely we should be looking at better quality than McKenna.

Also yes Kev I did call him Lavie Heed because he’s full a rubbish.

13.) 21 Aug 2018 12:33:45
If we go for McKenna, then I never want to hear anyone at Celtic ever speak again about our aspirations to be a CL club or have ambition to be one. That’s clearly a lie if we go for him.

So, knowing Lawell’s abject inability to actually spend for real quality, he will be signed. Real quality must have gone down a notch. Just like our hopes. I wish I could say you couldn’t make it up, but we all know that’s the SP of all our boards. Cowards and risk averse cheapskates.

14.) 21 Aug 2018 12:43:55
Should that no be full of Jimmy white. celtic will mot meet Aberdeen ask ing price mot in a million years sky saying the ss want 10 mill.

15.) 21 Aug 2018 13:05:27
Mally your right mate full of jimmy white. It must have been edited before it posted. 😂😂.

17.) 21 Aug 2018 15:05:35
Aye n yours is minted Kev 😂.

18.) 21 Aug 2018 15:12:27
It's an old experienced warhorse type we need in there at centre back.

19.) 21 Aug 2018 15:14:42
Why are we making the team weaker, it’s an absolute disgrace.

20.) 21 Aug 2018 15:17:16
Well said kev, couldn’t have put it better myself! 👏🏻👏🏻 😂😂😂.

21.) 21 Aug 2018 15:29:01
😂😂laughed at lavvy heed.

22.) 21 Aug 2018 18:06:48
The people on here who support Brendan Rodgers and have no problem blaming the Board for our centre backs need to remember that Brendan bought in his centre backs in January . The Board could not be expected to keep providing funds for the same positions especially until some had been sold .



19 Aug 2018 22:03:53
Ed, not necessarily Celtic related but do you have any idea why no club has taken a punt on Diego Reyes? I know he had a bad injury recently but he was a whisker away from making the WC (a very decent Mexico gave him until the very last second because they wanted him there so badly) and is going for nothing. Got to assume we are well aware of him but just didn't fancy him.


{Ed007's Note - Sorry, I've no idea, Kev.}

1.) 19 Aug 2018 22:19:36
Was just checking him out too kev good age too surely worth a look if fit.

2.) 19 Aug 2018 22:22:18
Fair enough, it seems strange that nobody at all has taken a punt on him.



18 Aug 2018 16:13:18
Today I've eaten a few wee crumbs of humble pie with regards to Gamboa. I slated him during the WC as a guy who has a few good games every 4 years and then disappears. His past 2 or 3 performances have been very impressive to the point I reckon we would still be in the CL had he played instead of Lustig. He's still got a good way to go if I'm going to eat the entire pie but I hope he does! Honourable mention to SS also, thought he was excellent.


1.) 18 Aug 2018 16:50:52
Played well. But won't be here next season.

2.) 18 Aug 2018 16:54:35
Partick got at least 6 crosses in from the right in the first half alone. Thought he was better once Forrest came on.

Personally put him in the same bracket as Tavinear looks good going forward but defensively poor. Been a good defender is a RB/ LB first priority.

3.) 18 Aug 2018 21:48:52
Once Gambo is given licence to take up his starting position at around the half way line . With his and Forrest pace and Forrest guile in passing, no team will dare to attack us down their left wing as they need at least 3 watching Forrest and Gamboa.

4.) 19 Aug 2018 11:32:54
It adds a lot in an attacking sense that he goes beyond the right winger. Gets into better crossing positions than big Mika as he just can't get up and down. Gamboa has mistakes in him, but he's the in form right back so. in my opinion should continue to start.



16 Aug 2018 18:17:12
Lots of rumours flying around about Denayer potentially being a goer. Tbh I've seen next to nothing of him since he was here and I would question the fact that Boyata was in Belgium's WC squad ahead of him. Ed do you reckon there's anything in it now that Galatasaray are apparently struggling to fund a deal?


{Ed007's Note - Denayer doesn't want to come back to Scotland so I can't see it - and if we're seen as a last resort - he also tried to get a move to Italy - should we even be considering him?}

1.) 16 Aug 2018 18:59:40
Think big VVD made him look good and don't really want him back.

2.) 16 Aug 2018 19:17:35
Vvd def made him look better than he is. We should have signed a quality CB before now. Now it's bargain basement time.

3.) 16 Aug 2018 19:18:54
Wouldn’t touch him. Doesn’t want to come and nowhere near good enough,

4.) 16 Aug 2018 19:30:32
Would be one the most underwhelming and desperate signings we’ve ever made! So it will probably happen!

5.) 16 Aug 2018 19:31:34
Like I said I haven’t seen him at all for a good while but I tend to agree Ed. I’d personally like someone a bit more commanding in stature and with a proven track record as a leader who can bring on the other guys.

6.) 16 Aug 2018 19:57:59
Would Liam Moore still be an option? Plus we still need to wait for a CH to leave first and that's no happened yet. So could be in for a long 2weeks left of this window. Just on a side note what is the deadline date for the Europa league play offs?

7.) 16 Aug 2018 20:27:57
The worrying thing now - on top of the CL exit and loss of cash - is the inevitable anti-climax whenever we do sign someone.
We will not spend millions, we will not attract the CL quality we have been craving to improve the team and we may even settle for yet another loan or two? I sincerely hope not because we clearly need a lift and more quality in key areas.



16 Aug 2018 14:49:13
After we were bullied by that gang of "footballers" on Saturday, I'd like to see us sign a midfielder in the mould of John Ogu from Be'er Sheva. Nigerian International, 6'3", big threat at set pieces and hard men like Naismith would think twice about sinking the boot in him. He can do the box to box role but likely wouldn't match an on form Armstrong in the goals department.


1.) 16 Aug 2018 15:07:10
Lassana Coulibaly would have been a great signing and was available on loan how did Sevco beat us to signings like that what does our scout actually do.

2.) 16 Aug 2018 15:16:16
Decent trolling.

3.) 16 Aug 2018 15:43:08
Bring serious I watched the first leg hoping Sevco would get humped but he gave them something they hadn't had in a long time fight.

4.) 16 Aug 2018 16:08:17
Fair enough but I'm sure there are other battling central midfielders we could add to the squad.

5.) 16 Aug 2018 18:38:46
Kevbhoy, yes we were bullied hacked at and kicked by that crowd on Saturday and they were encouraged by Beaton and assistant . On top of that the SFA compliance team have shown they are not going to accept any Celtic player making contact with an opponent . This season is certainly going to be very difficult for us domestically because even though the refs and their assistants have always had it in for us, this season they have encouragement as the SMSM insist that Gerrard has revolutionised Rangers2012 and they will at least push us hard.
Brendan and P L need to remember who are real enemies are and concentrate on keeping them in their place.

6.) 16 Aug 2018 18:42:20
They will be no pushover this season. They will play against us just like Hearts did. We need to lrarn to give back as good as we get.

7.) 16 Aug 2018 18:55:32
How can we learn to give it back, the compliance team certainly won't allow it . Lafferty and Naismith continuously dished it out on Saturday . Other Hearts players were not shy either but somehow after Hearts hard over the top show Mr Copliance officer managed to site S Brown for a nothing incident . It doesn't take a genius to realise God forbid, if a Celtic player happened to touch an opponent ( 3 match ban I think )

8.) 16 Aug 2018 18:57:05
I smell a hundercover agent in this thread.

His agent was quoted as saying he will not risk injury playing for Celtic and he will sign elsewhere for free in January. It doesn't get any less respectful or committed than that I'm afraid.

I remember you saying a lot of the inside info had dried up since BR came in, which I suppose is a good thing. I think Bruma is the template of what we should be looking for - physically imposing and no nonsense defending style - but unfortunately guys like him cost good money. I’d have said McKenna was worth going for if we didn’t have Hendry and Ajer already but not now.


{Ed007's Note - Bruma would be a fantastic signing but I can't see there being anything in it. I used to say that Hendry and McKenna were about the same level but - and I hate slagging off young players that are at least giving 100% - I'd maybe offer Hendry in a deal for McKenna. It's a shame to say it but I don't see Hendry ever being accepted by a lot of fans now no matter how he progresses, every single mistake or slack pass is going to be magnified and see the lad crucified.}

It looks like there’s probably been nothing to find out tbf Ed.


{Ed007's Note - There's not even anything about players being watched or clubs/agents being contacted. I did ask Ed002 about Bruma and the answer was:-

"Jeffrey Bruma is available and Crystal Palace and Frankfurt looked at him but nothing happened. Rodgers knows the player well so might be interested."

Agent Kevin didn’t start this one, he just jumped on the bandwagon. Appatently it originated on KDS this morning. It’ll be constant like this every day until the window shuts.
