In the rags today, Rangers after John McGinn.

I very much doubt it because Hibs have him valued at 5 million.


1.) 11 May 2018 09:04:52
Thats fine mate because windyass will go for three plus add-ons. In fact some think they should hold out for five. that's the level of rank stupidity we dealing with here.

2.) 11 May 2018 10:13:20
And I’m signing for Man City to replace Aguero.

Keep that to yourself though.

3.) 11 May 2018 10:29:53
Makes sense. The 12mill they didn't spend on Rooney can now be used for mcginn with 7million profit. simples.

4.) 11 May 2018 13:05:32
Ludicrous to value McGinn at anything over 1.5 million.

5.) 11 May 2018 17:14:26
Kev to be fair McGinn could go to a Championship side and Hibs would get £2 to £3mill for him. He is a decent player and still young so spending £3mill in decent championship side is not a risk really. don't know if I fancy him any more than Kouassi and he cost us £3mill.

6.) 11 May 2018 18:52:18
is aguero going to rangers? just as MP is going to man city, Aguero MUST be going to rangers, surely.

7.) 11 May 2018 21:29:14
More chance of me and James McClean joining the Saltcoats orange flute band than there is of John McGinn joining sevco, i know what John said when he heard it, i will give you a clue, the second word was off.

8.) 11 May 2018 23:30:52
Jamesbhoy67 you’ve said before you know him and his family. Have they given any indication that there’s a potential move to the hoops in the summer. I’m hoping maybe a bid of £2m-£3m plus Scott Allan will be enough to do a deal.

9.) 12 May 2018 01:53:45
Didn't think of the Allan chip, it's worth the ask but I don't see it being a big factor. He has no future here and wants to go there. Hibs will be savvy enough to know celtic would take 500k in a heartbeat which isn't much if they are after 4m+ with a few clubs interested. It will come down to where the hair goes and if BR rates McGinn head and shoulders above kouassi as they are fighting for the same spot with brown (ncham, mcgregor, sa and biton are all on the books in there as well) . The only time we would need 2 or 3dmfs on the park is against the best in Europe under the cosh in a 4321 or to see out a 1-0 lead. I'm still not convinced we need to spend 4/ 5million there.

10.) 12 May 2018 09:26:37
James Mc Clean is a sensible and realistic suggestion . Hard working amd commitment wouldn't be doubted on at least a par with what we have .
As for Roberts, time to shoo him off to get caught in the cogs of the PL conveyor belt .

11.) 12 May 2018 13:12:10
Hi Ice Man, there has been no approach from Celtic yet, Cardiff and Burnley had scouts up watching him a few times in the last week.

12.) 13 May 2018 18:44:06
TTTS you might not be too far off with your fellow Derry man signing for Celtic.

13.) 16 May 2018 10:56:45
People all said the same nonsense when we spent about 4.5 million on Scott Brown.

before and after he signed, he's came good though. People forget when you sign the likes of McGinn they then get chance to develop and improve also.

I think he is a good player and what our skillful midfielders like McGregor, Armstrong lack a bit of physical style as well.

Good passer but can dig in and wins possession back as well.



09 Jan 2018 17:12:04
Any chance we will go back for Coetzee?


1.) 09 Jan 2018 21:21:14
I would hope so but I’d really like to sign a first team CH to play beside Compper and KT and however at RB.

Players Ajer can learn from and let the current CH’s all go.

2.) 10 Jan 2018 09:34:31
If Coetzee is fit I would love us to go back for him. He looked fantastic and would cost buttons in today’s market. We spent more on Ciftci and a lot more on other duds over the years. I would go for it as at least the boy looks a player.

He might be able to play in Europe which should be no 1 priority, or our defence will do what they do and feck us up with their mandatory suicide defending.

I have a feeling it will be a last day scramble to get players in. We always talk about getting players in early. We are good at talking like that. Just as we are good at talking about being a CL team. Let’s keave the talking to Sevco and get done what dugs in the street’s wee pups can see need done, and it’s not talking about improving, it’s fecking improving.

I’m optimistic we will this time. I said it last year, the only team who can feck up 10IAR is us. We have form and surely this time the board see and act on what needs to be done.

If we don’t, It will be the a dereliction of duty by the blazers and prove this group are as hestirant and devoid of real ambition as every other board when we have been in a position to move forward.

They will do it, they have no choice, because right now our team has too many weak links. Even for Scotland never mind the CL.

Drawing with that pile of rubbish at home, should leave every board member convinced they need to act.

Where’s that Tin opener?

3.) 10 Jan 2018 12:00:06
Coetzee hasn't kicked all ball yet for his new team. Might be one for the future if he can get fit again.

4.) 10 Jan 2018 16:08:14
Magic we might have some weak links that need strengthened for Europe but we are strong enough to win the spl at a canter. We shouldn't stand still tho, and we wont.

5.) 12 Jan 2018 12:12:13
Steph I agree we will improve. You could not call yourself a Celtic man/ woman and not know we need to improve. The board are no different. I for once am quite optimistic that the board will strengthen, there is absolutely no alternative.

The better we get as a CL team, then the further out of sight at home we become.

Ed how much do you think we have left in the kitty after this big outlay?

Hope we have enough left for a quality cb and rb, possibly a right winger as well.

That being said, the best bit of business would be getting dembele to extend his stay.


{Ed007's Note - Look at as most of the Edouard fee should be covered by the VvD money.}

1.) 14 Jun 2018 19:24:24
This is going to be a belter of a transfer window. I expect DD and PL to put that clown across the river firmly in his place.

2.) 14 Jun 2018 19:25:39
It shows fantastic ambition from the club to agree a deal for Edouard and we’ll done to all involved. Hopefully we show the same ambition when recruiting going forward.

3.) 14 Jun 2018 20:08:18
Ed, do you know how much we got him for?

{Ed007's Note - About £6.2 million.}

4.) 14 Jun 2018 20:34:59
Glad we have plenty left for the other positions we need to strengthen.

5.) 14 Jun 2018 21:03:42
All we heard last season was that how the Orcs spent more money than us and now we spend more on 1 player than they have on all there so called superstars they have brought in so far.

I also have a feeling that once we announce Eddy will then sign McGinn and will follow that up by breaking our transfer record again. Just to keep the sluggs firmly under there rocks.

6.) 14 Jun 2018 22:09:40
We spent more on ntcham than they did on all their signings. In the media it was claimed they spent 10 million but their accounts said it was much less.

7.) 15 Jun 2018 01:32:05
I am waiting to see what our negative anti Lawwell and anti board posters will come up with re the fee for Edouard, I expect £4-5m . I doubt if the board announces a figure and if. they did announce a figure close on £10m, we maybe no wiser because we wouldn't know what all was included.
One thing that pleases me, is we took a player on a season long loan from a very rich club and with a right to buy clause and carried through and bought the player . I hope we can make many similar deals in the future . We are not wealthy enough to spend this sort of money without us having a good look at player and player seeing us.

8.) 15 Jun 2018 01:49:12
We spent more money on the grass we play on than their most expensive singing last year 😂.

9.) 15 Jun 2018 11:08:58
They might have spent 10 million but no way was that paid up front, would have been on the never never and will still owe millions in future payments for the duds . Tick tock .

10.) 16 Jun 2018 15:50:32
4m for Eduoarde, lawwell wouldn't have the ambition to spend over 4.5m on a player.



01 Jun 2018 08:58:34
Think we should sign McGeoch on a free transfer and then loan him back to Hibs just for a bit of banter.


1.) 01 Jun 2018 09:24:55
Sevco, if their pages are to be looked at are all for it.

Somebody wants him in now! Earlier maybe! Better than McGinn! Made McGinn play!

2.) 01 Jun 2018 10:15:58
But can he make Holt &Halliday play?

3.) 01 Jun 2018 17:15:01
In all seriousness I would take a punt on him had a very good season with hibs and on a free so not much of a gamble.

4.) 01 Jun 2018 22:43:09
Wouldn't get a game so what is the point? Like the idea of the loan back to hibs haha. He needs to play.



27 May 2018 08:16:18
What are your opinions on Ramos' tackle on Salah last night?

I thought their arms got tangled but then Ramos trapped his arm so he couldn't pull it away. He then gave him a small tug so they both went down and while falling, he twisted his body to make sure Salah's arm was under him when they landed.

It was very dangerous and could have easily snapped Salah's arm, was worthy of a red card in my opinion as it used excessive force.


1.) 27 May 2018 09:19:54
Classic defending knew what he was doing by taking out Liverpools main threat.

2.) 27 May 2018 09:23:44
Got to put it down to big game experience I think mate.

3.) 27 May 2018 09:36:25
Totally agree, he knew what he was doing and ‘done him’
I know he is a hot head but a simply fabulous defender.

4.) 27 May 2018 10:20:59
Don’t think he was trying to injure him. Its a physical game and when they both went down someone was likely to get a sore one. Looks bad in slow mo but in real time it happened in a split second so I doubt Ramos had time to think “I’m going to do him here”

Thought Ramos was the best player on the park by a mile. So much so he’s concvinced me to put some cash on Spain this summer.

5.) 27 May 2018 11:12:20
Never a red card just very good defending, something our own defenders should learn.

6.) 27 May 2018 11:26:45
There's a picture that appears to show Salah grabbing a hold of Ramos' arm first and then the injury was to the opposite shoulder from the way he landed. He definitely wanted to leave one on him though, no question.

7.) 27 May 2018 11:57:08
I am not a fan of Ramos, he's a big dirty b*****d that gets away with murder but that wasn't even a foul last night. He won the ball and then they got tangled. Salah was pulling as much as Ramos. The way they fell was just bad luck for salah.

8.) 27 May 2018 12:35:21
He knew what he was doing! It was deliberate.

9.) 27 May 2018 16:07:19
I agree with Kev
Never liked Ramos although no question about it he is a winner. However I can’t take to him, a big dirty so and so.

10.) 27 May 2018 17:08:46
He’s a wonderful defender of that there’s no doubt but he knows every underhand trick in the book. The second I watched it I thought it was deliberate and iv watched it a few times since and am still of the opinion it was ment.

11.) 27 May 2018 18:04:37
Ramos certainly committed a red card offence against Salah last night . Can you imagine the outcry that would have arisen if S Brown had tangled in such a way .
Ramos has history of committing red inducing fouls . The ref was too cowardly to card a Real Madrid player so early in the game .

I was delighted with the result even though I used to have a soft spot for L'pool, my two sons in law redicule Scottish football and call it a pub league, so they will have plenty to look forward to next time we meet up.

12.) 27 May 2018 22:03:21
Fabulous defending you must be kidding right? He is committed I will give you that but he is and always will be a thug imo. He is an assassin and he took out Mo Salah and with it Liverpool's chance of winning.

Its not that he pulled Mo Salah's arm its that he deliberately held onto it and trapped his wrist and then as the above describes landed on top of it and then pulled his arm. It was one of the worst I have seen and I was surprised Salah got up and carried on after it for a few minutes.

It was simply disgusting, it reminded me of the tackle on Larsson which to this day I still believe was deliberate by the french assassin. goes unpunished as experienced defenders just make it look accidental.

13.) 27 May 2018 22:06:04
big hartson at his peak would have knocked ramos about for 90 minutes.

14.) 28 May 2018 22:43:49
No chance, everytime big bad John would have neared him, Ramos would have rolled around in agony and roaring in agony . Hartson would have to stay away or he would have been off before half time.



24 May 2018 17:51:47
Looks like the lunatics have taken over the asylum.

As you all know, the sevco board love a wee statement and this one is announcing that Celtic fans will be getting less tickets as of next season.

During this season loads of teddy bears have been greeting because they can't handle getting pumped on their own patch, while they look on with envy at our celebrations.

As a result they started a campaign to have us banned from Ibrox and it looks like they got their wish and their board have co-towed to them.

However, if they had been a bit smarter they may have taken Rodgers' advice on board, when he told them to be careful of what you wish for.

The reason I say that is because now more of them will have to watch their team get pumped by us and they will still have to endure watching us party.

They really are a bunch of silly billys.


1.) 24 May 2018 19:20:01
They need all the money they can get to try and close the gap on Aberdeen.

2.) 24 May 2018 19:30:46
Can they sell 54,000 season tickets to take up the short fall?

Paul Murray ( accountant ) and Robertson recently said they could afford the loss 🙈

Dodgy Dave looking for money up front! I wonder why 🤣🤣🤣🤣.

3.) 24 May 2018 19:35:11
Let's hope we reduce there allocation in return.

4.) 24 May 2018 19:37:59
Atleast now we are doing the same and more Tims will get to see us annihilate them at CP. The club released a statement saying they would do so not long after the Zombie statement. If it was up to me they would never set foot in our stadium again.

5.) 24 May 2018 19:48:16
I posted a few weeks back I had put myself on the waiting list. Now after this bizarre statement from them I probably can't fail in getting one now. I know the club sells non Sevco game season tickets but I can't see many taking that up.
This seems pretty desperate by the Orcs. Selling many more season books than you could previously cater for screams how absolutely skint they are. On the plus side of course, no more hordes of hun smashing up large areas of our stadium.
Fair play also to Celtic FC who took very little time to respond to their threat.
Hopefully I'll be sitting in my own seat when we lift the 10th league trophy in a row!

6.) 24 May 2018 23:04:24
Might be a bit cynical here but does anyone else think they are trying to get more money up front.
I also think Celtic have been waiting on this and will be over the moon they've done it.

7.) 25 May 2018 00:39:13
The reason they did it was because their fans couldn’t take listening to us as we parted their balls in their own midden.


8.) 25 May 2018 11:38:19
I had seen their petition about us getting moved and the main points where as the OP said us mocking them. There would be a riot caused by hoops fans celebrating too much. In fear of their lives as explosive devices thrown into them. Attacking the goalkeeper with flares. They have no self awareness whatsoever.

9.) 25 May 2018 11:47:56
its just backfiring on them now as we don't have to keep the season ticket limit to 53,000, so we can sell a few thousand more season tickets as well for even more revenue to buy players, old skelly eyes just keeps digging a bigger hole for himself.



23 May 2018 18:30:53
I have marked what players I think we should sell and loan out, along with the other squad members.

Craig Gordon
Scott Bain
Dorus de Vries
Conor Hazard (Loan Out)

Mikael Lustig
Anthony Ralston (Loan Out)
Cristian Gamboa (Sell)

Kieran Tierney
Calvin Miller

Jack Hendry
Jozo Šimunovic
Nir Bitton (Sell)
Dedryck Boyata
Marvin Compper (Sell)
Kristoffer Ajer
Erik Sviatchenko (Sell)

Scott Brown
Stuart Armstrong (Sell if he won't sign new contract)
Callum McGregor
Olivier Ntcham
Eboue Kouassi
Scott Allan (Sell)

James Forrest
Mickey Johnston

Scott Sinclair
Lewis Morgan
Jonny Hayes (Sell)
Kundai Benyu (Loan Out)

Tom Rogic
Ryan Christie

Nadir Ciftci (Sell)
Leigh Griffiths
Moussa Dembélé
Odsonne Édouard (assumed we sign him)

Looking at remaining players I don't think we need that many signings.

Would get Right Back to challenge Lustig and loan Ralston out for another season. Would sell a few of our Centre Backs and buy someone who is going to be a first team regular. Would like to get cover at Left Back as I don't see Calvin Miller as a fullback. You could possibly make a case for a Right Winger if Mickey Johnston is not ready.

Other than that I would not sign anyone else unless one of the players I did not mark for loan or sale, was sold. In that case we would need a replacement.


1.) 24 May 2018 12:12:07
I agree with most of your comments, however I think to hit the next level we need a Rb, Rw in the summer. If we had same threat down the right as we do with kt it would help us alot. We struggled for goals this year and I think a new rb would help. Also we only have forest and sinky on wings and we've lost musonda and paddy - 2 wingers and a rb and id be happy. Cm we are fine (if Armstrong stays) cb im happy to go to ajer jozo boyata hendry.

Biggest signing of summer is rogic. If we can keep moussa, Armstrong and edouard then we don't need many signings.

2.) 24 May 2018 13:05:12
Four isn’t many, but we need four.

A quality cb and rb are musts and need done quickly before cl qualifiers start. The reason I say that is we could be without rogic and boyata due to world cup.

Looks like Rodgers intends to go for it as there is little defensive cover on the bench and 5 attacking players.

If our squad needed major surgery I would be more anxious to make signings early but if we have everyone available we should be able to make a good attempt at qualification.

Yes there are areas I would like to strengthen but don't mind waiting if it means we get the right men in.

So I urge people to be patient and let's judge if we are stronger or weaker when the window closes.

I think the fact that the EPL transfer window closes early means that it will be easier to get players in for a few reasons.

1. Player's value will be more reasonable because clubs needing to sell will be inclined to sell at more reasonable prices once the EPL window closes.

2. EPL teams are only allowed to have a squad of 25 players, which means they will need to offload any excess or pay them despite not be able to play them.

3. There will be more loan options available from EPL teams once the window closes.

For these reasons, I can see us holding off on transfers until their window closes.

That being said we may be forced to buy now if Boyata, Lustig and Rogic have extended runs in the World Cup or we run the risk of having a weakened defence and lack of creativity in the CL qualifiers.
