Nothing new but that's a good few sources now I've seen that ajer, christie, ntcham and edouard will definetely be off this transfer window with a year left on their contracts.

I've also heard that we're going to trigger the 1 year extension on Griffiths contract, I feel personally though he's had his chance and it's time for him to pack his bags. Some might disagree and say it's worth keeping a proven goalscorer in the midst of a big rebuild but there's only so many chances you can give a man and for me he's had too many, he's let the club down, the fans down and himself down and times for a fresh start.

Last season was a disgrace and for all the trophies won previous to that I don't think there sheer lack of commitment and effort in going for 10 in a row can honestly be forgiven. Out of the whole squad I can safely say in my own opinion there should only be 7 names worth keeping,
Jullien, Welsh, taylor, soro, mcgregor, turnbull and Forrest.

I have zero faith in any of the goalkeepers so that should be our very first signing whilst looking to replace the deadwood that is there.

I know some will argue mcgregor was terrible but i honestly think he was let down with the players next to him (brown, ntcham, christie) and was caught trying to do too many jobs but the level of consistency he's shown the past few years means he's a vital part of a rebuild, the rest of them either aren't good enough or simply don't want to be there.

I have also heard McGregor has wanted a move since last summer and still hopes to move on. For me, Jullien has missed far too many games since he arrived and is not tough enough physically or mentally IMO. Turnbull, Taylor, Soro, Forrest, Welsh were the only players willing to stay that showed any kind of form in a torrid season and maybe Bayo deserves a chance to prove himself?
Griff has shot his bolt and we will never a 40 goal season ever again and his fitness and discipline issues are too much baggage.
I think Bitton and Rogic are at the end of their Celtic career, although Ange may want to persevere with his fellow Aussie?
To put it bluntly, we need a clear-out and complete overhaul to exorcise the ghosts of last season and start afresh.

Jullien wanted to leave last summer as well and isn't consistent enough for me. He's had some good games but isn't tough enough so would let him go if we can recoup what we paid for him.

Well if true and these rumours are always a bit sketchy for me. and if the club hierarchy knew why keep them, is it a coincidence most were rotten all season, no idea but surely professional pride and dreams of a big move would drive them o, or maybe the rumours are mince and they had a bad season.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Jun 2021 15:39:47
I think Jullien splits opinion with fans and there's no doubt he's had a good few shaky performances especially when it's been against a physical centre forward but I do feel it would be harsh to completely right him off, he got a sore one with his injury which wouldn't even have happened if barkas had dealt with it so last season he really couldn't be judged on.
Prior to that I think his first season he showed us enough that with a bit more focus and consistency he can be a top defender, he was solid in the European games and most of them in the league and realistically is the only out and out defender who can actually defend so for me he deserves another chance.

As much as rogic might know this new manager and up his game I just feel his best days are behind him and we could be doing without someone who struggles to last 90 minutes most of the time, as for bayo I don't think he should be written off just yet it's hard to judge a player when most of their appearances are from the bench.

That's the one thing I never understood with Lennon, he never gave players a chance to get a run in the team and build confidence, he was too quick to judge and stick to his favourites and old ways of playing that in the end came back to bite us in the backside.

Watching Austria v North Macedonia and the big Macedonian centre back Velkovski is exactly what we need in the middle of our defence, bi, strong, hard as nails and clears everything that come into their box .

If we could get our money back on jullien I’d happily let him go. As for griffiths, I’m a huge fan of his but he’s definitely let himself and the club down over the last year or so, and I do appreciate he has personal issues, for me if he can look ange straight in the eye and say I’m ready, I won’t let u down, I’d give him a year to prove it. A fully fit, fully focused, and fully committed griffiths would be in my team every week, but he MUST be those 3 things. If I’m his heart of hearts he can’t be those 3 things he has to move on.

I'm feeling happier this morning having just read the Kennedy's considering his Celtic future.
Carefull the door doesn't hit you on the way out Gonzo.

I think Kennedy should move on to, but I don't like the abuse he gets. He's a Tim and has tried his best I am sure. The board should have never forced managers to include him, he didn't, we must remember that. It's their incompetence that is the problem. If you do leave John, good luck son.

12 Jun 2021 12:57:51
Having worked under several managers I would have thought he would have been more astute and capable during that caretaker period - and I know the players were to blame as well - but he failed miserably and a fresh start would be best for all concerned.

Agree2 0Disagree

12 Jun 2021 15:52:45
For me Kennedy was the mirror image of Lennon not one difference in strategy team selection substitutions infact if I didn't know better I was starting to think it was Kennedy picking the team and tactics all along under Lennon I don't wish him harm in any way but I wouldn't have him as a coach in any capacity at Celtic.

I think if he is to stay he should go back to what he did best, coaching the youth team, he did well in that role but he shouldn’t have any role with the first team .

Hi Ed, how are you doing?

Is there any truth in the story coming out of Greece that AEK have agreed personal terms with Ntcham?

If so, has he been released or will we receive a fee?

{Ed007's Note - It doesn't look like we will get any decent money as an actual fee for Ntcham but it would be foolish to not try and get some money knocked off future Barkas payments. Remember that players can have agreed terms with clubs before their present clubs have agreed a fee.}

I'd like him to stay on under the new manage rather than sell for the figures quote. There's definitely a player in there and for what we're going to get for him I'd take the chance he knuckles down for the new manager. Could be like a new signing.

Agree2 0Disagree

11 Jun 2021 22:40:14
Pod why do you want a player that doesn't want to be there to stay?

That is crazy, get rid of anyone that doesn't want to stay. In my opinion this was the biggest reason in our capitulation last season, too many players not really wanting to play for the jersey.

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Jun 2021 22:41:08
Thanks Ed, sooner we see the back of him the better but I hope we can realise some sort of remuneration before letting him leave.

12 Jun 2021 10:18:20
Rojac, my reason for wanting to keep him rather than almost give him away is because he's a first team player when on song. I know his attitude has been poor but it's amazing the difference a manager you respect can make so if he was prepared to put in the effort I'd give him another chance.
Would you like Rogis to get another chance or should he be away too? His work rate has been shocking for years yet a lot of fans seem prepared to give him a chance because he's worked under the new manager before!

Agree2 0Disagree

12 Jun 2021 11:47:04
Ntcham started his crap when BR was at the club and we turned down his move to Porto. He then stated he was too good for Scotland, get him away asap. As regards to Rogic I think he should be out the door too, I've never really liked the fact he is never fit and way too inconsistent. Rogic doesn't do enough for me, get rid of him too, and don't forget he wanted away too he obviously just didn't fancy the middle east or wherever it was.

It's the dawn of a new era at the club and we need to clear the decks and rebuild for the future and build it properly. Anyone not 100% committed is out the door and include the likes of Calmac in that too, if he wants to try something new let him go and try it. This was our biggest problem last season, too many players didn't really want to be there and if anything the mistake the board made was not moving them on. Although I understand why they didn't, going for 10IAR and punting the likes of eddy. The fans would have been in uproar, so they keep them and they don't perform and guess what the fans are in uproar haha

Get rid of everyone that wants away and then we start again, I said this at the start of last season and I think the crap show that followed proved I was right in saying so.

Agree1 0Disagree

12 Jun 2021 12:31:31
I read somewhere that AEK were willing to forgive any future payments for Barkas if they signed Ntcham. So would probably be just a swap, I think there is a decent player in Barkas and just needs time to settle, it couldn't have been any harder for him to come to us with C.V. and so many players unhappy at the club. Give him a chance to prove himself and get his confidence up.

Agree2 0Disagree

12 Jun 2021 13:15:31
I read that Ange has instructed that any player who isn't there for the long haul is to be shown the door. You'd imagine Ntcham would be top of that list.

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Jun 2021 20:42:38
Ntcham appears to have agreed terms with AEK this evening.
No idea if we are getting a fee or if he is being released.
If AEK are looking for players with no heart, no drive, no spirit and no determination then I think he'll fit in well.
Good feckin riddance. HH.

11 Jun 2021 15:22:10
We definitely need real quality in key positions and I hope he is serious about what he is quoted as saying; another thing I don't want to see, is half a team of last-minute loans or panic buys.

Here we go with every good player to emerge from Asia 8n the last ten years being tipped to be coming to us from guys in Possil, Clydebank, Montrose and Coatbridge. I'll start, Naka on his way. Gospel.

11 Jun 2021 18:17:59
I think we need players with character over players with talent. Character and determination will always win over quality if it's a choice of ne or the other.
And with that theory in mind I sincerely hope Big Ange doesn't sign any French players. HH.

11 Jun 2021 19:45:03
I hope he doesn't sign any players from some far flung points who are, or become international players, and miss so many games a season because they are traipsing to the other side of the world and back .

The man deserves a chance to make things work but what worries me is how much control and say he has over signings and general operations within the squad.

The past is indeed the past and it's time to move on but I don't trust the celtic board as far as I could throw them and just feel there is a total lack of competency in the timing and running of decisions and if rubbish hits the fan for whatever reason then ange will unfairly be made a scapegoat.

Peter lawwell is now away which is one toxic weed removed as change was needed but with no head of recruitment or director of football in place I feel this is going to be an utter transition season for us all instead of expected success from the off.

Give him time and let him have the final say on transfers if it's within the budget as he's the one working with the players every day, strange times to be a celtic fan but all the best and good luck ange!

Agree0 0Disagree

10 Jun 2021 15:53:46
I think the clue may be in the title the club has given him, not head coach but Football Manager. He will be managing the football side of things.

Agree0 0Disagree

10 Jun 2021 17:49:48
We need to get behind him. And so do the board, or it will be panda.

Agree0 0Disagree

10 Jun 2021 18:23:10
Best of luck ange I really hope he is a rip roaring success obviously but I cannot understand how we’ve ended up here how can he be our second choice, I know we probably got a few knock backs but we’ve ended up with one hell of a gamble, there’s probably thousands of coaches with the relevant pro license to manage in our leagues and European tournaments and although they don’t garuntee quality and success surely they are a bare minimum for a ‘big’ club . I pray I’m wrong but this could be an unmitigated disaster. HH.

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Jun 2021 18:31:08
Ange won't get the blame from me unless the board give him backing and he buys duds. The CL is gone more than likely as we don't have time now to get players in. But we need to for the Europa a few weeks later. Again, who actually believes we could manage that. Hopefully Dom won't haggle over ten bob and the ghost of Lawell can be exhumed once and for all. Still think it's a Herculean task to get quality in, and will be torpedoed if the board go cheap and hope again.

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Jun 2021 18:35:13
I bet it doesn't get close to the unmitigated disaster we are still in due to appointing the wrong guy last time. We have Lenny and Lawell out, that's a step in the right direction. Over to our board to back Ange. God help us all. :)
