Hate these effin 'windows' as we are linked to everyone and their dug with fake news, speculation and mischief-making Sevco media.
We had about the longest ever close-season to evaluate the squad, look at contracts, off-load and recruit, yet as usual we seem to lag behind the rest, in actual deals being done and players signed.
I appreciate there are a lot of pros and cons with agents, players stalling for the best deal and the drawbacks of our location; however, there are still two months of this window and I can see us once again faffing about at the last minute or even losing a star player with a late offer PL cannot refuse and it bursts ma arse!

That's been about a while that rumour. Be ok when Fletcher ajeti and Taylor all rock up to the gates with there kit bag and it's discovered someone's no been counting properly.

Did you no put that gif up the last time I posted ha ha (Brilliant) .

{Ed007's Note - I don't know mate lol but after 10 years doing this those type of posts all start to look the same. There's usually at least one a day during the transfer windows that all say the same thing.}

That he does- his issue was playing the remainder of the games, getting injured and then having NO contract and BTW he was not the only player who refused to play, just the 1 with the highest profile and their top scorer.

I can't see nor want to believe that the Fletcher/ Taylor links are true.
In my eyes the club would be taking a backward step in signing either player, they just aren't the quality we are looking for, they have no sell on value either which isn't the mould we have been building on.
Also if these two were seriously what we had to replace Eddy if he left would cause an absolute uproar at the club.
So I'm going to ignore any links to these types of players and presume if we do sign them then its simply for them to work with our development team and be nowhere near our first team.
Now celtic let's get a CB lined up and let's crack on with the season.

My true blue pal messaged me to joyfully advise that the Fletcher deal is dead as he's rejected our 'disgraceful' offer and is off to Stoke. Guess he should have factored in dealing with Pedro before splashing the cash on carpets 😂.

Fletcher deal dead apparently.

Believable2 0Unbelievable

06 Aug 2020 15:19:10
Brilliant. News must mean we have our original striker coming in as I think Fletcher was a backup plan or atleast I hope he was a backup plan.

Agree1 0Disagree

06 Aug 2020 14:02:18
Fletcher deal is dead because Celtic are getting ajeti. word got through last night to Celtic that ajeti wants to come. The deal is a loan but basically a permanent because if he reaches ten games which I imagine he will then it will become permanent. Will arrive in Glasgow tomorrow.

Believable1 0Unbelievable

06 Aug 2020 14:05:46
I bet ajeti does not arrive in Glasgow tomorrow .

If you are right and I am wrong, then I'll be happy to be disproven.

And one last point . he had lockdown . has rarely played. has the chance to come to us 3 weeks ago. has dithered. now appeard to be on holiday having a rest AFTER his 9 sub appearances last year. he has hardly charged up london road to be part of a record breaking attempt.

By all accounts, he will be coming to us with wages protected and because noone else wants him because he is not game fit.

Wasn’t overly impressed by the thought of fletcher but thought he would have done a job as a back up striker and a different option to what we have! Not in the least bit bothered if he didn’t come but. must say but and I’ve said it a few times. the way we handle transfers and transfer strategy in general is baffling honest tae god! We cannot just seem to see a player we like and go and get him without a fuss! Sadly it’s been like this as far back as I can remember! Really comes across as amateur hour some times.

{Ed007's Note - Celtic can't control what the press and morons on social media say. What have Celtic done wrong? They can't stop Barry Fry mouthing off even if it pi$$es them off, they can't stop all the ITK morons on Tw@tter saying umpteen times a deal for Fletcher has been done and they can't force Ajeti - whose season only finished last week and who is still on holiday - to make a decision after he told them he wanted time to make the right choice.
Celtic only do things wrong if you read - and even worse believe - the rubbish in the papers or social media. Just because we've scouted a player or registered an interest doesn't mean we're going to sign them, clubs do it with literally hundreds of players.}

Don't like the idea of players coming who are not fit or haven't played games for some time. We had to endure months of settling in and fitness issues with Soro and Klimala and it wastes a lot of time.
I was against the Fletcher signing, but at least he was playing regularly and may have settled in very quickly?
NL uses the phrase 'Hitting the ground running' when looking at recruitment and that should be a foregone conclusion.
Look at the time, energy and money lost with the winter signings, along with Shved, Bayo and Compper who's careers never materialized.

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Aug 2020 15:01:56
By the way lads the only reason I posted that on here is because it came from the mooth of tam McManus who is big fletchers agent.

Ed, do you know much about ajeti? Do you think he'll be a good signing, if he does join us?

{Ed007's Note - He was highly rated when he was at Basel but the move to West Ham hasn't worked out for him. I do think he will be a good signing if he can get back to the level he was at before the move to England.}

Its a rumour page. Doesn't matter if it pans out or not. People put up wee snippets that's flying about.

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Aug 2020 15:52:03
@ Wulie, I can quite well believe that. I remember an interview with a former West Ham manager (I think it might have been Bilic) and he said that a lot of their business and how much they pay/ recieve is based on clauses around appearances etc. I'm sure they (whoever it was) said that they were limited to how much they could play Javier Hernandez due to costs and I think I heard something similar lately about Soucek being a permanent signing due to the amount of games he's played.

It might not have worked out at West Ham but based on his record for Basel and what I've read/ watched, coupled with his age, I'd much prefer a loan to buy on Ajeti than Fletcher. How many times have you reminded the troops Ed that Sutton had a bad spell at Chelsea. 'One Swallow Does Not A Summer Make' and all that.

We have been linked this morning with Man city's Germany U21 international forward Lukas Nmecha. He has recently been on loan at middlesbrough.

I was speaking to a carpet fitter earlier who did my brother's mate's mate's carpets and he said that it was a 4 year deal and a guaranteed coaching role at the end of it


Plus fletcher gets free meals in the planned new hotel plus an Adidas discount on all celtic gear.

Brutal signing sums up our board in 1 purchase. Pathetic kick in the teeth to supporter who backed the club finically.

Good back up? He hardly scores a goal when he plays week in week out. Have we learned nothing from the likes of freddie Ljungberg or daryl murphy?

This would be another large wage for nothing. the rangers are good at signing pensioners but its not our policy.

05 Aug 2020 23:35:01
Waste of a signing for me this one if it happens. No way does fletcher play ahead of edouard, klimala or griffiths if he’s fit and ready, and god forbid we were to lose edouard this window, if Lennon or the board think fletchers going to cut it they can think again.

Agree0 0Disagree

05 Aug 2020 23:29:26
Club has record season ticket sales and this is the fans reward? F*#k me! Be better off keeping Bayo.

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Aug 2020 01:25:27
Shankland would be a much better signing, or have been, or will be, depending on how much truth there is on this "rumours page ".
Someone of Fletcher's age and experience and maturity would be perfect in the middle of the defence, absolutely no need for him at the other end of the team.

Agree1 0Disagree

06 Aug 2020 03:55:29
And this is what we get when the board hire a puppet, Yes man as a manager.
I'm just away to grab my hard hat before the screams of "We are all Lennon" begin.

Agree1 0Disagree

06 Aug 2020 06:53:57
basically just to replace bayo i do not see what the panty wetting is about. he adds something different knows the league i think he will do well. we have our main striker and griff and klimala looks like he can score to so why go out and splash millions on a striker when there's other areas the money needs spent. wee have a strong squad as it is 1 or 2 signings is all that's needed.

Agree2 0Disagree

06 Aug 2020 08:27:53
This signing smacks of a cheap alternative, how many fans could 100% say we will have eddy come the end of the window . If that happens I’m not convinced we have a forward line that will our score the Rangers . Kemar roofe was decent for Leeds, the Belgian lad had a 1 in 2 record in Belgium plus Defoe is always good for 10-20 goals for them of fit. I’d have thought after the Rangers threw down a gauntlet to us with two signings on one day, we would have reacted . Unfortunately signing Fletcher is not the reaction most fans were after . Griffs temperament at the minute is a bit up and down, this is a gamble that could get the board chased if we don’t get to 10. It’s obvious the Rangers are going to throw everything at it, we have to act in kind. On their day against us, they matched us, their squad strength was their weak point. They have recognised this and done something about it. Why are we so slow to react or in fact push on from a position of strength.

Agree1 0Disagree

06 Aug 2020 08:52:05
How can the club receive record season ticket sales and will more than likely make record sales on the new home top and possibly the other tops too and then go out and deliver a signing like Fletcher. Does this board not want to win 10 in a row after all the investment the fans have put into the club the board should be going all out to support and fund the team to the fullest of there extent. There should be no make-do signings. We need proven quality in our team especially this year.

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Aug 2020 09:19:49
Well that's torturous but possibly not as bad as watching us drag the process of signing someone else through til October. Better bloody sign the damn contract and prove most of us wrong.

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Aug 2020 09:28:01
If we keep Eddy, move on Bayo and bring in Ajeti and Fletcher we're much better off up front than we were last season.
SF won't be on big money and would be a good option in a front two against the many 10 man defences we'll face over the course of this potential 60 game season.
As long as he's not the only forward coming in I'm happy with the move.

Agree2 0Disagree

06 Aug 2020 09:45:26
Fletcher and carpet fitters? Hh.

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Aug 2020 11:35:19
Why is everyone driving themselves into a frenzy over this? IMO This will be proven to be a shrewd piece of business. The big question is can he stay fit, if he does I've no doubt he will do a job.

Agree1 0Disagree

06 Aug 2020 09:32:47

{Ed007's Note - Sounds like rubbish to me mate, rubbish made up on Tw@tter at that.}

06 Aug 2020 17:18:37
quinn because rangers sign 2 players wee need to splash the cash. our squad is strong and needs 1 or 2 signings. so if rangers sign a right back tomorrow wee need top go sign one as well. the manky mob signed 2 strikers because they had to. wee do not have to rush into anything we are the bench mark we just have to be calm and buy the 1 or 2 players without rushing in to it.

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Aug 2020 18:40:02

Dont know if there's any truth in it but I've been told we want to bring in Toney and Ajeti with Bayo moving out on loan or permanent and Klimala going to Aberdeen on loan for the season.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

05 Aug 2020 17:37:24
I don't see that unless eduarde is off.

Agree0 0Disagree

05 Aug 2020 19:18:46
Klimala is going nowhere.

Agree0 0Disagree

05 Aug 2020 19:28:29
Find it strange to loan out Klimala, when he is just settling into the club and team-mates, plus getting game-time with goal (s) .
I do appreciate that if you include Griff, to the above equation then we would have too many to accommodate unless Eddy is leaving?
Personally, I would expect us to settle for Ajeti on loan, keep Eddy on an incentive, for one more season. With so much to play for and five substitutes per game, we can comfortably have four strikers.
The cash saved on Toney can go towards the urgent defensive needs?

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Aug 2020 15:24:23
Seen somewhere the ajeti deal is loan with perm option if he gets a certain amount of games this season.

Agree0 0Disagree

05 Aug 2020 07:15:59
I could be wrong here but despite last night's result, I'm not convinced we'll sign Toney, as PhilTim commented Mr Lawwell doesn't like his business being conducted through the press and Barry Fry seems intent on starting a bidding war. I think the Swiss lad on loan is an option but I'd also like to see another striker come in with some height but preferably one who's closer to 25 than 35. Time will tell.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

05 Aug 2020 08:21:15
I think PL will be going all in on Fletcher unless eddy is sold then we may buy a younger striker.

Agree0 0Disagree

05 Aug 2020 09:57:08
The player holds the power. If he wants to go to Celtic and we want him then Petersborough will accept an offer rather than risk losing him for peanuts in January when we can sign him on a pre contract.

Agree1 0Disagree

05 Aug 2020 10:22:53
My gut feeling is he'll be too pricey for us unless god forbid eddy goes bit like sevco selling the coo.

Agree0 0Disagree

05 Aug 2020 11:43:52
Signing Toney would suggest a precautionary move for Eddy and as it seems we are being priced-out of the deal, then we need to ensure big Oddsoaks stays for another season and even bring in Boyle or Fletcher as squad players to cover.
However, our priority must be adding a wing-back and centre back as those are positions where we are vulnerable and short of quality.

Agree0 0Disagree

05 Aug 2020 11:55:09
Boyle is a winger.

Agree0 0Disagree

05 Aug 2020 12:20:49
We need to get Edouard replacement now reguardless because end of the season latest he’s deffinently for the off just hope wee keep him to then.

Agree0 0Disagree

05 Aug 2020 14:36:50
West ham boy will be in after he's had his holiday. Celtic won't be held to ransom for Toney.

Agree0 0Disagree

05 Aug 2020 15:12:11
Maybe Tony has told Fry that he is joining us either now or he will sign a pre contract in Jan maybe that's why Fry is pushing us hard to sign him now.

Agree1 0Disagree

05 Aug 2020 18:22:46
I am wondering why we are going after Toney and or Ajeti unless we are going to change our system or Eddy is off?

I’m surprised the original 3 stripes around the stadium hasn’t already been reinstated.
Nike demanded a stripe was to be removed around the stadium because it resembled Adidas 3 stripe brand.

Not seen anything mentioned but I like the more simple look of plain green up there.

I hope that if the club were rejigging the seats they'd come up with a new fresh design rather than a corporate logo.

Updating the font on "CELTIC" or adding more hoops would be nicer in my opinion.
