Hi Ed is it true we have a young RB training with us by the name of Manny Perez? Would this likely be one for the reserves?

{Ed007's Note - He's been over for about a week now and I'd guess he's seen as one for the future and probably back up just now.}

1.) 10 Dec 2018 14:11:50
Read an article stating memesivic ( spelling ) has stated himself that Celtic have been in talks with him . Seen someone post on here a few days regarding the rumours . Is this one a genuine possibility?

2.) 10 Dec 2018 14:29:59
That’s true del if Boyata does go Whell get ok muney and this lad could be a free transfer? Could be gd business if u ask me.

3.) 10 Dec 2018 15:40:39
Do u know much about the guy bigbhoy1? Never heard of him or seen him play . But going by the comments on here the other day, the guy seems to be a player and we would be lucky to get him?

4.) 10 Dec 2018 16:42:53
No del think I read he made the eredivisie team of the year last year at c h been capped for Bosnia aswell I think he plays for the same team wee got Van Dijk from so they must know a centre half?

5.) 10 Dec 2018 17:58:03
I would assume is just paper taking rubbish with McGregor linked to Bournemouth for 10 million. Because a guy called Lewis cook is out for the rest of the season. Must say l had to laugh when a guy l hardly heard of is quoted at 18 million and McGregor only 10!

6.) 10 Dec 2018 18:28:56
Ter we would need mental treatment To take anything less than 20 mill for mgregor guy is a class act.

7.) 10 Dec 2018 19:08:00
100% bigbhoy1. Lewis cook 18 million and then saying McGregor is 10 million. Typical premiere league rubbish. At the minute McGregor is worth at least 20 million plus. Besides there is only one place for him and he is right there in Celtic.

8.) 10 Dec 2018 19:26:13
Lol Ed that’s the guy I replied about on another post! 🙈.

{Ed007's Note - 👍

9.) 10 Dec 2018 20:34:57
Just seen a clip of him Ed (youtube) but he looks very attacking and could develop into a cracking player looks like he's got a few skills to beat a man.

Memesevic didn't make last seasons tots he's in it currently (whoscored) so must be a top performers in the Eredivisie to make it in there. Not sure how accurate they are mind you. Maybe that was who BR went to talk to? Or perhaps Powell both are out of contract end of season.



07 Dec 2018 12:58:57
So apparently Celtic did make contact about Memesevic. Would take him in a heartbeat he looks a baller and is statistically in the team of the season in the Eredivisie.

1.) 07 Dec 2018 14:44:40
What stats r u using?

2.) 07 Dec 2018 16:42:14
He looks a solid unit which is always a plus. You want the strikers to notice him as soon as they walk onto the pitch.

3.) 07 Dec 2018 17:25:56
Read an interview with him he seems keen but say i g other clubs are interested played a lot of games last 2 years.

4.) 07 Dec 2018 20:09:44
Really good in the air so if Boyata is leaving then Benkovic and Memesevic would make some pairing for the rest of the season.

5.) 07 Dec 2018 20:11:13
Agree Mally seems to be engineering interest for himself as he's out of contract in the summer.

6.) 07 Dec 2018 20:20:39
I think that he would be an excellent player for us but think that we could be outbid for him.

7.) 07 Dec 2018 20:30:53
See the Daily Rangers readers are out in force 😂😂😂😂😂.

8.) 07 Dec 2018 20:58:51
I don't read that piece of rubbish rag thanks it was actually a story on Celts Are Here. Nice try though.



01 Sep 2018 11:22:47
This will cheer everyone up. Celtic sign Armstrong Okoflex. Remember. that guy we apparently signed months ago? Just announced today. That'll cheer everyone up about losing Dembele.

1.) 01 Sep 2018 11:52:42
pretty cynical announcement that. They must really think we're stupid.

{Ed007's Note - Armstrong Okoflex is a 16-year-old kid that signed a contract in July that only came into force on the 1st of September. I've no idea why it was done like that - maybe some red tape to do with signing kids - but he's been training with us since we returned to pre-season training.}

2.) 01 Sep 2018 11:58:54
Maybe his contract only started today? Even so it seems a strange story to put out just after punting Dembele. He says he wants to make his debut before he's 17 and he might just get that chance if Griff and Edouard are out at the same time, which isn't unlikely.

{Ed007's Note - He's mainly plays at left wing.}

3.) 01 Sep 2018 14:16:43
No harm to the boy and I feel for him being used like this welcome to the club son. Hope you become a star with us.

4.) 01 Sep 2018 14:24:34
It seems we have a lot of highly rated young wingers. Johnston, Morgan, Okoflex and Dembele. I see Karamoko turns 16 in the next 5 months would hope we can get him signed up to a 5 year deal can see a few big clubs try poaching him.

5.) 01 Sep 2018 16:33:36
That’s my fear. Some rich barstewards stealing him. Get him signed as soon as we can. Also looking forward to seeing young Morgan. I think he will be a real asset.

6.) 01 Sep 2018 16:30:50
Young dembele plays a lot at number 10 a lot as well does he not?

7.) 01 Sep 2018 17:04:52
Has the wee man got any taller?



30 Aug 2018 13:00:01
Mulumbu apparently about to be announced 🙄.

1.) 30 Aug 2018 13:18:52
Free ✔️
Low wages ✔️
Not any better than what we have ✔️
Perfect Celtic signing ✔️.

2.) 30 Aug 2018 13:19:12
Offs, the joke that is Celtic has just got funnier. Shocking if this is our level of quality signings. HH.

3.) 30 Aug 2018 13:22:53
I like him as a player but free so that'll mean no Chirivella. Just selling players and replacing them with loans or freebies. perfect strategy for improving that is!

4.) 30 Aug 2018 13:23:14
Announced as a Swansea player?

5.) 30 Aug 2018 13:24:20
Sell Dembele for 22m and bring mulumbu in for nowt, sounds about right me! Uninspired and desperate!

6.) 30 Aug 2018 13:24:24
Honest guys, is this where we are at? Seriously? Am I really asleep and having a feckin nightmare? HH.

7.) 30 Aug 2018 13:30:52
It looks like all we are going to bring in is loans or free transfers. We are a joke at the minute . We hear that we don’t depend on champions league money, then when we go out it seems like all fees for players stops.
How do they sell that one to Brendan, you are basically shopping in the loan market 🙈😡.

8.) 30 Aug 2018 13:37:31
Was brilliant against us last year to be fair. And can play either role in the middle of the park - can sit like brown or push forward like ntcham, like he did when he scored the winner against us.

9.) 30 Aug 2018 13:44:14
Certainly not the worst considering he was far too good for kilmarnock and I'm sure a fair few on here were naming him as a potential signing this summer back in march/ april.

Still need a defender and probably a striker if dembele goes. Maybe he won't but it's looking likely.

10.) 30 Aug 2018 13:47:21
Utter garbage of a signing - Celtic are fast becoming a laughing stock

Completely disgusted with news.

11.) 30 Aug 2018 13:52:29
Decent player though. Good competition for Ntcham who's been a bit off the boil. Definitely still need a CB and Striker at the very least.

12.) 30 Aug 2018 13:54:49
Popped 'mulumbu' inti the search bar and he was getting mentioned as recently as two weeks ago.

Seems opinion was split in April regarding His suitability however I was right, there are people om here who were suggesting him.

I'll reserve judgement til he's played half a Season but his experience could be mite useful than say, Luiz, who is young and Brazilian (lest we forget juninho, Rafael) .

Could be a modern day lubo? 😂.

13.) 30 Aug 2018 13:56:48
Average Player. Typical lack of scouting type signing and will not excite fans. Where has the money gone? I thought it was THEM that was broke! 👎😩.

14.) 30 Aug 2018 14:04:06
This guy was very good last season. Bossed quite a few I watched and played well against us.
Am scratching my head wondering why people are moaning that we are signing an experienced footballer who has played at a high level and knows this league and we are getting him for free?

15.) 30 Aug 2018 14:16:58
Too positive Kev83. Were having a whinge just now, didn't you know? It's not cool to be positive, brother.

16.) 30 Aug 2018 14:19:28
Mulumbu is a good addition he walked the league last year. He stood out in a good killie side last season.

Well experienced and a bit of muscle in the middle of the park. He will be great support for Broony and Ntcham.

Still hoping defence gets sorted.

Some of you guys mentioning a replacement for Dembele if he goes who would yous suggest or who do you think we could be looking at?

17.) 30 Aug 2018 14:29:47
I reckon someone that’s been scouted for before. We’ll be contacting anyone and everyone in regards to Dembele moving. I’m thinking Reo Griffiths will come our way on loan as part of the deal. Or Sardar Azmoun if we can get a deal.

18.) 30 Aug 2018 15:05:49
He’s a very decent SPL level player who will do fine for us in the league. But as a statement of intent this stinks.

19.) 30 Aug 2018 15:38:27
So our scouting policy now consists of.
- played against us in spl
- man city youth team
- loan from PL

Wtf is going on, we used to unearth gems now we scratch around the same limited markets.

The board obviously have some blame here however BR is in charge of football operations and from what I can see its a rubbish show.

Mcginn, mckenna, mulumbu. (31, not like our previous policy n reeks of panic like compper) .

Serious questions asked top to bottom if this is our only purchase, good player or not, this shows we are in a very precarious situation. Could've got him months ago if he was the man we wanted.

20.) 30 Aug 2018 15:58:34
I said last week after Sudava game we are in dire need of a box to box midfielder someone who can take the ball off the defenders and won't give it away, Mulumbu could definitely be that guy for sure. I know a lot of guys are shouting for defenders, I don't think this is our biggest problem especially in Europe. I've noticed that most of the pressure we come under in European games is when either our defenders can't find a pass as our midfield are not working hard enough to find space or our midfield are getting caught in possession with their backs to goal which will always cause trouble for most teams at that level.
Whilst it may not be the most inspiring signing I do feel he is exactly the type of player we have been crying put for. This guy very rarely gives the ball away and has a fantastic engine.
Just saying like 💚🍀 HH.

21.) 30 Aug 2018 16:15:07
Roy a said the same thing after the Athens shambles, the midfield either passed it back n put the defence under pressure or didn't show for a pass when playing out from the back. Can't say I've seen much of malumba but I'm a bit uninspired by it to be honest, desperate looking signing as someone pointed out he's been available all summer.

22.) 30 Aug 2018 16:38:16
Armstrong out mulumbu in isn't an improvement or a long terms solution, it's get a guy in because we've messed up n running out of time n that's the problem, it surely confirms we have no real strategy or shortlist of well Scouted targets.

No mcginn deal he could've been in straight after, why wait till now? Actions n timing say a lot imo.



29 Aug 2018 18:55:33
Seems Man City midfielder Luiz has agreed a loan to Fernebache.

1.) 29 Aug 2018 19:43:03
We are crap at getting deals done.

2.) 29 Aug 2018 20:38:27
Exactly WC. I don't know if it's arrogance or incompetence or a mixture of the two but our transfer dealings are a total embarrassment every year. HH.

3.) 29 Aug 2018 21:28:08
I would lean toward the incompetence although once they signed Edouarde, there would have been a lot of smug back patting.

4.) 29 Aug 2018 23:51:06
Was we really after Luiz like pushing for a deal to be done? Just seems City was using us as a possible avenue of getting an easy work permit for Luiz. I'd much rather a permanent deal for Chirivella than a loan for Luiz. Can see that being a possibility as well as John Terry and maybe Benkovic and Solanke on loan too.

{Ed007's Note - How about this for a window before I go to bed...

John Terry on a free, Gary Cahill on loan with Chirivella and Nick Powell both bought?

And I've hacked Rich T's webcam....


5.) 30 Aug 2018 00:26:53
Id take that . its better than were getting at the moment . cahill would be a nice wee dream to wake upto . are us bhoys allowed to dream these days
Hail Hail.

So it's confirmed, Sky Sports are paying £100m over 5 seasons for the Scottish football rights. Also confirmed the EFL will get a deal worth £595m over the same duration. Our game is so undervalued and I'm disappointed BT didn't win the rights to Scottish football as they put more of an effort into pre match build up and actually care about the game. I can see there being some strange kick off times with Sky to accommodate for the teams down south.

1.) 19 Nov 2018 21:57:38
Show me where we are getting £100 million over 5 years.

2.) 19 Nov 2018 22:53:28
Can’t be right. We get £21m as it is.

3.) 19 Nov 2018 23:07:51
It's around 30 million a year for 5 years fae what i've read.
Think that includes the league Cup as well though but not sure.

4.) 20 Nov 2018 11:03:44
Papers saying 150 mill over 5 years.

5.) 20 Nov 2018 12:51:52
BBC saying 160m and BT offer was less than their current 17m a season.



31 Oct 2018 22:24:22
Impressive display tonight! Look back to the team we know. Was good to get it wrapped up early bring off the key players and give the young lads a run out. Gutted didn't get to see more of Arzani as he looked bright when he came on, similar to Paddy in his wing play. More importantly points gained over the others at the top of the table.

1.) 01 Nov 2018 15:51:53
I think young Lewis Morgan is a very good signing, future promise to improve but even just now he gets the ball moved with it looking for space or the pass. Looks a cracker and I'm delighted as he is a young Scot also. Jack Hendry gets abuse, but he also is good with the ball, he just needs that extra aggression to go through with a tackle. Not to foul but to win or block the ball not just a half hearted attempt.



27 Oct 2018 22:37:15
Anyone else seen Dedryck on the new Nationwide building society advert lol?



24 Sep 2018 23:05:06
Kris Boyd coming out and saying Celtic is predictable but Brendan Rodgers won't change it. The teams have us sussed out. I think that's probably the best thing to happen maybe Brendan needs to read what players in the league think of us (him) in order for us to change things. The tactics worked winning a double treble but it isn't anymore. Hopefully that article will humble him and we see a different approach from now onwards.

{Ed007's Note - So we're listening to Kris Boyd now? Maybe we should get him in as manager if he knows so much, maybe even just to coach the strikers eh?}

1.) 25 Sep 2018 09:14:13
Birds a fecking moron, whose got on the delusion train. The truth is simple. We are out of form all over the park. We have less options to change it after the window, but we still have enough to do it. All it needs is the players we have to step up to the plate. Take all the rubbish being written and spoken and yes that as motivation to ram it down their throats.

If they think it’s over they are even more gullible that I thought. And believe me that was total.

2.) 25 Sep 2018 11:07:57
Said it before it's the game plan, if money was no object say we signed wanyama and van dijk and lakaku probably cost us upwards of 170-180m do you think with the 70% of our possession pass pass pass rubbish sitting in our own defence these players would make a massive difference I'm not too sure they would in fact I'm positive they wouldn't, the players are paid enough they should be thrashing the rest of the spfl easy but they are not they turned Up against rangers though which tells me there may be issues within the squad and the manager that's what needs fixed and the tactics if they get fixed we will start smashing teams again when Brendan managed Swansea they played fast attacking football 433 formation really good to watch this is not how Brendan like to play its very strange.

3.) 25 Sep 2018 12:17:12
I read an article by a Darren Coney earlier about celtic. (I usually don't read the daily rectum but I was bored in the hospital ) . It's like a rangers fanzines article. These guys don't even try to hide what they are anymore. Celtic have hit a bad patch whilst rangers are winning and doing well for a few games and the world's great but when celtic are winning everything scottish footballs pish! We will get our act together and this blip will be forgotten when we win the league. Celtic have lost only 6 games in the league since Brendan took charge. We haven't lost any domestic cup games yet it's a crisis!

4.) 25 Sep 2018 13:28:48
Personally the players are where I’m pointing my finger .
The vast majority have been there long enough to know their role in the team . for me Brown, Teirney, Boyata, are among the very few pulling their weight .
The biggest culprits are simunovic and Sinclair who have gave very little return in over a season now . that’s too long to be called off form .



01 Sep 2018 11:48:26
Anyone think Ben Arfa and Lacina Traore would be worth a punt as free agents?

1.) 01 Sep 2018 13:00:34
Adam Maher anyone?

2.) 01 Sep 2018 13:28:29
Would hope the 'laptop scouts' overseen by clueless Congerton are doing the same as you guys and trying to identify a 'free' striker?
LG has had his injury problems and big Eddy is just recovering; so that would leave us with Christie or Sinclair filling-in and a very lightweight forward line. There must be someone for the short term, until the next (sorry her'e that word again) 'window'.

3.) 01 Sep 2018 14:19:04
Traore would be a great signing. He's a giant and would give us a different option up front.

4.) 01 Sep 2018 14:51:35
Would 100% take Ben Arfa. Quality player with bags of ability and different to what we have at the moment. Not sure if he brings some unwanted baggage though.

5.) 01 Sep 2018 15:27:09
Agree Ice man it seems he does carry some baggage. Seen he was meant to be disruptive at Newcastle and has fitness issues too but a class players no doubt. Maybe he's changed in all those years.

I'm sure we'll see more of Izzy over Christmas would like Tierney rested before Sevco game so he's firing. He needs the odd game off so he doesn't burn out and Izzy is more than capable domestically.
