Apparently Ntcham is having a medical now. There was a picture posted of him standing in the centre circle of Parkhead earlier. Just shows you BR comes out with the power and pace statement on a player that he was specifically looking at and the papers link us with every potential youngster from Chelsea, Man City ect just for this to come out of nowhere last night! They don't have a clue! Lad looks decent can play anywhere in midfield and wing if need be. Played majority of games on loan at Genoa who are a decent outfit and has bags of potential.

Tompo88

{Ed007's Note - The picture going round is Eboue Kouassi and not taken today because the Celtic Park pitch isn't anywhere near looking like the pitch in the picture - the new turf was only laid 2 days ago - I doubt anyone except the contractors would have permission to walk on it incase of any damage while it settles and beds in - Oh and there's no white lines on it yet.

Ntcham


1.) 08 Jul 2017 20:29:06
Fair play Ed I've watched a few YouTube videos and like the look of the lad alot! Did think picture was questionable could be anyone but heard from a few folk about the medical and put 2-2 together. I'm hoping it comes off as we are crying out for Rogic backup just due to fitness alone plus the lad can play anywhere in midfield.

{Ed007's Note - He does look a top talent for his age.}


2.) 08 Jul 2017 21:00:09
Has Eboue featured in preseason as yet Ed?

{Ed007's Note - No, he picked up a knock the day before the squad flew out to Austria and by the time they got to Austria it was causing him pain.}


3.) 08 Jul 2017 21:00:19
Ed not doubting you but looks very like the rig out he was wearing on another pic doing the rounds. I'd post it but dunno how.

{Ed007's Note - The pitch doesn't have any lines on it yet - that picture was 100% not taken today.}


4.) 08 Jul 2017 21:26:33
Cheers Ed. Got a similar 'caveman' style hunched over stance that he had in photo of him too. Even went so far as to reassure fans that's not how he moves on the park.


5.) 08 Jul 2017 21:47:17
You think this ones a goer then and what do you think about him? As good as Musonda?

{Ed007's Note - It looks like it, he arrived in Glasgow tonight for talks so we'll see how things go. I really don't know much about him.}


6.) 08 Jul 2017 22:28:48
The videos on YouTube usually show all the best bits of players but his shows a few decent passes a few tackles but very little else. Musonda would have been an unreal signing even at his age. Not doubting BR one bit if he thinks he's the right target to help us in champs league then I'm all for it.

But if his YouTube videos are anything to go by this is a seriously underwhelming signing.


7.) 08 Jul 2017 22:42:55
Is he a playmaker/ no.10? Looks as tho he could be a wanyama type. by his build anyway.

{Ed007's Note - He can play anywhere in the midfield but people who know more about him than me are saying that Rodgers will play him as a No.10.}


8.) 08 Jul 2017 23:05:18
He can do a crackin backflip that's aw that matters. Mind you so could Efe. 🤔🤔🤔.


9.) 08 Jul 2017 23:13:11
Pitch was marked out yesterday according to Robin Buchanon Stadium Manager in a reply to me on twitter.


10.) 09 Jul 2017 00:37:24
Boab if Celtic are ever going to sign a world class player then there will always be risk involved. always has been the case and always will be as if there was no risk and you have near finished article then some English team would pay some ridiculous money! The market is mental atm! So much so that I heard today that Ruben Neves (young Porto CDM billed for big things) has just signed for Wolves (WOLVES) for 18 million! Wolves! Dembele was a young talent similar to the lad we are discussing and I watched his YouTube videos from Fulham and was not impressed. It was a signing of talent that needed the right place to nurture, build confidence and progress and look were we are now. The lad has been playing for Genoa in top half of Italian table and has (as a young loanee) played 37 games in Serie A. So as far as you're view on him for some youtube clip you watched for 4 mins goes, I'm extremely underwhelmed by your assessment of a player you know sweet FA about.

{Ed007's Note - Wolves deals are a bad example, Tompo because of Mendes involvement there but I get you drift about Youtube. If video cameras were so popular when I was young I would have looked like a CB with the skill and vision of Cantona and composure/temperament of Paul McStay!}


11.) 09 Jul 2017 01:17:41
Ed007. I bet your wife can never pull the wool over your eyes . Your reading of the pitch was superb and was the work of a master . m

Tell me, have the ground staff laid our new future pitch or is it just a holding job this yr and a new one next yr.

{Ed007's Note - There wasn't enough time to do the full job so the bottom 'layer' bit was done this summer and the final top bit will be completed next year. If you sesrch the site for 'desso' you'll see what the plans are and I'm sure there's a video of how it's installed and works.
My wife has always complimented me on my reading and treatment of the grass on the pitch ;)


12.) 09 Jul 2017 01:45:50
Tompo I wouldn't say sweet fa about. I watch Spanish football a lot and musonda was always a stand out no matter who he was up against. This new guy hasn't got a good rep and he isn't a player I've ever heard of. When BR was talking of pace power and pedigree can you honestly say that he's the guy? If it is then I'm not alone in thinking it's underwhelming!

I love what BR has done so far and if this guy is another dembele then I'll say I was wrong but I'm still hoping for a bunny out the hat signing!


13.) 09 Jul 2017 08:29:07
Balde looked a world class striker what a seen of him on YouTube boab so let's no beat him with that. i watch Spanish football most weeks and misunda is someone ad never heard of so we need to trust the manager he's dobe no bad up to now . remember this time ladt year plenty on jere didn't fancy sinckair and that worked fine bit like hayes that'll work out fine to.


14.) 09 Jul 2017 19:51:40
That pitch actually looks only laid the lines also are only put on and the lad on the pitch is 100 per cent the to be new signing c'mon ed keep up ain't ya seen a newly laid pitch even during a season lol if that guy isn't the new to be signing then he sure as he'll shops in the same place on the same day.


15.) 10 Jul 2017 11:29:45
Exactly if YouTube was available at the time, Larsson would of probably looked pretty pish n'all before he came to Paradise. I like this potential signing as I really rate Rogic but we need competition for his spot due to fitness alone but Ntcham will need to prove himself to dislodge him.

Not to mention if potential is fulfilled they can even play together in the same midfield! CB (like the look of Duverne even though he looks like staying in France for another year) St Juste was another name mentioned that they are now talking about big bucks yet still no bids.

Or even someone not mentioned yet of that quality. And another winger. Never thought Paddy was an option and still don't as whatever we put in some bottom half English team can easily outbid but still a small part of me that hangs onto BRs statement of letting EPL calm down that gives me the slightest hope, if not a Musonda or someone again not mentioned of that quality and that's our team for a champions league assault.

Hey Ed I've seen the papers are continuing to roll with the Nagbe lad from Portland Timbers story and have apparently just signed a replacement. Do you think there might be a bit of substance to it. Or the papers just putting 2-2 together?

Tompo88

{Ed007's Note - Portland Timbers previous statement that Nagbe isn't for sale still stands as far as I know.}


1.) 27 Dec 2016 04:29:04
In today's paper that we have pulled out of a deal.


 

 

29 Aug 2016 14:17:25
Apparently Cristian Gamboa is in Glasgow for talks and due a medical soon. Anyone seen much of him? Know he's fast, but is he any better defencewise?

Tompo88

1.) 29 Aug 2016 14:46:05
(In the jungle the mighty jungle. )

He's our right back, goes forward, gets back. He's Cristian Gamboa.
He's no pretender, he's our defender.
He's Cristian Gamboa.

Ooooooooohhhhh Cristian Gamboa, oh Gamboa Oh Gamboa Oh Gamboa.


2.) 29 Aug 2016 15:23:13
Remember him from playing in Norway, wasn't just fast, he was bloody fast!
He was OK for Rosenborg, the previous bloke that was able to hold down the right back position was none other than our Lustig, he was never too brilliant for Rosenborg either. (notably better after he signed with us) .

Not sure how much of a defender that comparison makes him. but he should be able to get down the line and cross the ball in front of the goal if nothing else.


3.) 29 Aug 2016 15:23:17
Dear dear dear HL7 lol.


4.) 29 Aug 2016 15:37:57
No disrespect HL7 but that's ****ing terrible.


5.) 29 Aug 2016 15:52:18
Guys Cristian Gamboa name in glasgow is known as "Christ son" he's fast. He has a message for Joey ( i'm the best there is Barton) .
2 letters on the front ( HI) and back (BY) . this guy is so so fast


lol.


6.) 29 Aug 2016 15:57:31
he was part of costa rica team in world cup that made it to the quarter final in world cup and he's really fast and goes up field alot, i havnt really watched him i just researched him as soon as i heard the news and he seems a good fit for the hoops, that's hoping hahaha.


7.) 29 Aug 2016 15:59:23
but just wondering how much he cost, i read somewhwere that he was priced at 1million.


8.) 29 Aug 2016 16:00:17
HL7 MURDER.


9.) 29 Aug 2016 16:14:43
Lawell and Park scraping the bottom of the barrel again for average players.

This guy can't even get a game for WEST BROM!


10.) 29 Aug 2016 16:49:01
I remember that world cup he was one of the top points scoring defenders in the sun dream team comp so he must be good 😀 🍀🍀.


11.) 29 Aug 2016 16:51:22
He isn't getting a game for west brom because he is a defender who isn't 6 ft plus. The fact tony pulis doesn't rate him is a good sign. he's a guy who once built his team around a player whose of only skill was shying the ball 40 yards.


12.) 29 Aug 2016 16:56:47
Big Bhoy what has that got to do with anything?
Plenty very good players can't get into the squads in England right now because of the money being flashed around.


13.) 29 Aug 2016 17:40:57
Looks a good player. Whenever you doubt a player, think Janko. :)


14.) 29 Aug 2016 17:51:32
People keep going on about how much is he costing, And blaming PL and Park for this.

Would it make a difference if we spent £6 million on him and I personally don't think BR would have any player forced on him after what happened at Liverpool.


15.) 29 Aug 2016 19:43:42
Jonbhoy doesn't matter what the board do some people just won't give them credit.


16.) 29 Aug 2016 19:57:54
after happy bear shavers BR said he chose Janko because his meds had wore off.

no only joking

He said he chose Janko because of his speed up the wing.

I remember just before half time more than 3 player crossed into their half of the field - 1 being Janko as if they thought - keep it tight, score at half time end the tie - didn't work as he lost the ball - he was fast but couldnae get past my nan.

if we had a rb who was super fit, fast and could take a man on - sign him - does this guy fit the bill - ps we need one of those on the left too.


17.) 30 Aug 2016 10:20:21
Because he can't get gamd time at wesbrom he ain't a decent player? Everyone that watches epl football knows pullis prefers strapping solid looking full backs, bigbhoy you are ultra negative! The guys not even signed yet and your already knocking him and blaming who ever signed him, it was br decision to sign him not Park and lawell, give over with this crap bhoy.
Played at the world cup recently so has a decent pedigree, from clips I've seen he looks like he can defend better than janko, lightening quick, csn cross a ball, and also has a decent shot on him. Time will tell if he comes good for us but let's back the bhoy if he signs.

Hh.

Dundee Utd have agreed to take Stokes on loan until the end of the season.

Tompo88

Stokes has rejected Dundee Utd.


2.) 14 Jan 2016 20:37:50
Interesting.


3.) 14 Jan 2016 22:35:19
I'd offer D Utd a few of our other players on loan! They are a huge club with history and I definitely don't want them going out the league! Teams like Caley Thistle (even although I love John Hughes) Killy and Hamilton wouldn't be missed, especially with those bloody plastic pitches! Playing for Utd would be ideal, - huge pressure, big club, decent stadium etc! I'd refer Ryan Christie there than Caley! Also O'Connell if they would take him! I doubt Allen and GMS would fancy it but we need to get rid of some of the squad players! Allen is good technically but is no where near fit/ dedicated enough for me! He's like a young Kris Commons, there is at least 20% improvement in there. Ronny has to sort this out - it won't be long until he's been here 2 years and the team are nowhere near as fit and dynamic as I was expecting! There shouldn't be a choice about doing extra sessions, it should be mandatory, and if they can't handle it they should be told to leave! We're not even remotely good enough to be taking any of this lightly! For me this stuff is unforgivable because you don't need a huge transfer budget, or need to be playing in a great league! It lies at Ronny's door, the galling thing for me is he obviously knows how important fitness and all the basics are but it's not happening! I've said before that some of the teams you watch would run over the top of us, - look at Juve 2/ 3 years ago! The Italians have been doing it since the 80's, - some of the German coaches went over there years and years ago and said it looked like they had an extra player, especially Milan under Sacchi, - you don't need money for that! Even teams like Portsmouth and Leicester are running more than other teams, I think them along with Tottenham, it's not luck, they deserve what they are getting!


4.) 15 Jan 2016 10:44:21
We have too many midfielders at the club, with Allen and Chritie at the end of the queue behind Johansen, Bitton, Brown, Armstrong, Rogic, Commons, Forrest and GMS.
If you include Boerigter, Mulgrew and Stokes then it's pretty obvious we have a ridiculously unbalanced squad and need to address the deficiencies and surpluses asap.
We are very short of real quality in defence, up front and in the wide areas and RD has had plenty time to assess this.


5.) 15 Jan 2016 12:50:34
Celtic finalizing the transfer Ivana Močinić. Representatives Celtic should be going to the river in Dubai to find out whether the young Rijeka footballer to accept their terms. Final interviews will be carried out on Croatian soil, director of the Scottish champion John Park announced his arrival in Zagreb.

Since the zakomplicrala situation Anas Sharbini, Močinić remains the only player of Rijeka, which realistically can leave the club in the winter transfer period. The only official offer so far arrived in Sharbinija, who refused to go to China.

For Močinić no club has not sent an official offer, for all those interested know the conditions. As soon as someone Rijeka pay a total of slightly more than 3 million euros (2.7 mil. Euros plus reimbursement for development) fixed compensation, Močinić can go.

Celtic falls into the category of clubs, which will easily pay 3 million euros in damages if Močinić agree to the terms. A Močinić has reason to calculate the year of the European Championship finals in France.

Just got in the wider list of team members and any change of environment represents a risk. No one knows how many can take a period of adjustment to the new environment. If you stay in Rijeka until the summer, Močinić is sure to play and to have a real chance to see France. In this case, next summer will have no problem finding a club that is willing to pay a fixed compensation.

On the other hand, Celtic are an attractive club in the league for the appropriate step in Močinićevoj career. For ambitious players like Močinić not long way from Scotland to the English Premier league.

8.) 15 Jan 2016 17:10:38
Mocinic certainly looks like he can play a bit but cm definitely isn't the priority. Probably be to replace Bitton in the summer.


9.) 15 Jan 2016 18:30:57
We've only really got Biton and Brown in the holding role, Mulgrew is out of contract and if he leaves I'm cool with that! I also think in Europe you could have the option of playing a 433 with Biton, Brown and someone else. So for me the holding midfield role is a priority. I'd also like someone who can play with his head up and control a game/ keep possession/ pass the ball! We also badly need at least 1 centre half, and a no 9. The only part of the team were we have options is in the attacking midfield role, and even then it's quantity as opposed to quality we have!


10.) 15 Jan 2016 18:48:43
What we need is a striker, when stokes we don't have much backup, ciftci needs time, but I prefer him out left cutting in, so only leaves us with Griffiths and Cole.

08 Aug 2018 21:58:15
May not be a bad thing. When we go away defending a lead we tend to play para as ****.

Astrana, Anderlecht at home (when we could lose and still qualify for Europa) , and even the recent game in Rosenborg who we made look like a team even though they were nowhere near our level at home! Are the most recent that spring to mind Beer Sheeva is another 4-2 at home. Jailbreak away

At least we go into thos game knowing we need a win no messing about

I think we have seen in last 2 qualifiers that Edouard as dynamite as he may be needs MD in beside him to lead the line and let him do his thing

I love Lustig but he's to slow. KT, Ntchm and McGregor were running riot down that left side. Forrest had the beating of that LB on the right but no support

The state of the bench tonight just proves that BR is trying to get through these qualifiers with both hands tied behind his back. We may well now make some signings. But if this away tie goes south it will be once again too little too late.

If they kept 10 men? They would have beat us . No point papering over the cracks . Something is wrong behind the scenes. Hell mend the board if it all goes t! t's up . Between the vvd money, Armstrong money, the world cup money? What is our net spend? Hee hee! Even after French eddy we haven't touched a penny without past cl money . Now the board are supposedly criticising Rodgers for speaking out about transfers?

4.) 08 Aug 2018 23:18:36
If they kept 10 men theyd have beat us. i think u mean 11 but that's bs . we got in behind them more when they had 11 men . the 10 made them fall even deeper back and gave us very little space but do agree on the penny pinching hail hail.

I've said it before and I'll say it again that Mikey Johnson is going to be a star!

Tompo88

1.) 14 Jul 2018 17:20:47
He certainly has bags of talent. My only concern with him is he is very light weight at the moment and could do with bulking up.

The games he played last season in the first team he got brushed off the ball too easily.

All that being said I wouldn't mind seeing him have a wee run out this season to see how he copes.


2.) 14 Jul 2018 17:34:31
He’s too skinny. Definitely needs to bulk up before he will be considered for a run in the team. Loads of ability.


3.) 14 Jul 2018 19:35:38
Kt bulked up mj should just have a chat with him.


4.) 15 Jul 2018 01:28:28
There is a wee skinny boy Modric playing for Croatia tomorrow in quite an important game . He was chased from a crowd of clubs because he was too small and light.

He was just starting to pick up last 6 games but think you also need to factor in we are in a strong position we are currently in to sell with 2 years left on contract atm. Keep another year and we are in same situation as Armstrong were he goes cut price as he can sign free contract in January. I'm not massively fussed with money but the more young stars we develop and sell for massive fee does give BR another example to use while in discussion with another top talent.

Perfect scenario would be to get him to sign up for another year or 2 then as you say sell next year. But tbf with Moussa, he enjoys it here. We know he'll be away at some point but he has waited for the right move and never made a fuss. Dortmund could potentially be the right move and if he does go does so respectfully and with my best wishes.

Exactly Mally which makes the fact we have been waiting on McGinn for so long (pretty much full window)

Cut the board some slack as it was a guaranteed signing. Especially after Armstrongs departure

Not to mention the fact BR has specifically said he wanted him and was after him in several interviews

Yet we find ourselves in not a great position in the 40 million quid tournament. Over what now looks like a few grand!

Totally Stan same player that won same accolade as Neymar at same age.

Would forgive his defensive display if he wasn't as door going forward

Need to end this failed LB adventure immediately and let the boy go back to his strength.

Would have to be an almighty turnaround mind to displace Morgan, Johnston or new Aussie bhoy.

We all hope that we will pull another Ntcham out the bag and McGinn becomes an afterthought.

But the fact is it going to cost a lot more than the reported 2.75 mill to do so and I think that is what's sticking in everyone's throat atm after seeing him holding thst Villa jersey today.
