have you heard of we are actually interested in Tyrese Campbell. If we are and they have already made a bid that would be a sign of intent and "one upmanship " if we got him. No idea if he is good enough admittedly.


1.) 14 Jan 2020 23:57:45
That's how we ended up with Allan and Morgan.

2.) 15 Jan 2020 07:52:13
And Scott Brown😉.

3.) 15 Jan 2020 09:50:18
And glen loovens.

4.) 15 Jan 2020 13:22:52
But at least we missed out on that rat novo.

5.) 15 Jan 2020 13:40:20
Poor rat being compared to that poor excuse of a human being.



04 Oct 2019 22:42:21
Think Taylor will make the squad this week? Boli is doing well but would be good to see him get some game time. Same with Bayo, like him to get a start and see what he can offer.


1.) 05 Oct 2019 11:36:54
Yes with the hard game on Thursday and the physical effort team put, allied to orrible plastic surface, I would freshen it up a bit. McGregor looked tired on Thursday give him a rest and play Nitcham who was only on for last few minutes. Also Hamed put in a shift bring Bauer back and put Taylor at left back, he should be used to playing on plastic pitches. Up front, I would take no chances with French Eddy and play Bayo.

2.) 05 Oct 2019 12:04:50
I agree with most; replacing the two full backs and Awesome but bringing in Ntcham is questionable. He does not tackle and never plays well away from Celtic Park. If you want to play him bring in Bitton and play him at 10. This would allow us to rest Christie and Macgregor. Having a strong bench would let us make changes depending on the way the game was going.

3.) 05 Oct 2019 15:17:33
Play the best players in their best positions. 3pts then international break. Rest no one we are fighting for a league title.

4.) 05 Oct 2019 18:29:42
Wouldn't make too many changes not to sure about Bauer after last Sun.

5.) 05 Oct 2019 19:17:46
keep a winning team together.3 points then rest anybody that needs it.



23 Jun 2019 17:12:15
Why are Celtic saying KT has his price but Calmac is not for sale. Seems odd. Surely position should be the same for both - young, talented and on long term contracts.


1.) 23 Jun 2019 18:09:13
Maybe they know something about his hip injury and are willing to let him go.

2.) 23 Jun 2019 18:20:19
Or more than likely. they haven’t told them a value, and simply said 15m isn’t close and the media are lying as usual.

3.) 23 Jun 2019 18:21:36
Because if they sell them both in the one window it represents selling the club out IMO

There would be a backlash just my opinion when as you point out they are on long term contract's.

4.) 23 Jun 2019 19:47:21
Or maybe KT has told them he wants to move on. I think he’ll be gone by the end of this window.

5.) 24 Jun 2019 08:25:50
I think KT wants to go onto the highest level plus from what I heard was that he wasn't keen on the standard of players being brought in.



01 Sep 2018 08:11:50
Someone is going to have to explain to me why we didn't sell Boyata for £9m and then reinvest in someone who actually wants to play for us. We will lose him for nowt next year and he is not as good as he thinks he is. Stupid decision as I'm certain if our scouts did their job we could get a decent CB for £5m or so. One of several bad decisions this window. They aren't great but will win most of their games and the game on Sunday is a must win to put down a marker.


{Ed002's Note - A good CB has arrived on loan.}

1.) 01 Sep 2018 09:06:08
Emanuel emenike is a free agent might be worth a punt big burly striker could do Us a turn as cover fir Griffiths and eddy.

2.) 01 Sep 2018 09:44:44
Chink67 I think that the plan could have been to get through the qualifiers then punt him.
We needed him for they games and the manager knew it.
The gaffer expected him to be a professional and if he had I've no doubt we'd have qualified.

3.) 01 Sep 2018 11:06:23
Heaney, Eminike is a good player but do you know if he has calmed down with age? Seem to remember he was a bit of a bam on and off the field.

4.) 01 Sep 2018 11:57:29
Lacina Traore is also unattached and guiseppe Rossi but he was always injured.

5.) 01 Sep 2018 12:04:23
He’s 31 now think he would be sound enough as cover but don’t think Rodgers would mind a challenge as long as he can still put the ball in the net.

6.) 01 Sep 2018 09:19:19
How do we know he is a good CB ed? let's face it, he got a move to leicester for a huge fee, but he is very young with very little experience. Ajer and hendry are bomb scares together and now we are relying on an unknown and boyata, a player who does not want to be here. Rodgers must be gutted. Is it just me or does anyone else see that we are going backwards? The morale and harmony in the squad can't be great after the exploits of boyata and dembele. Forgive the negativity but a 22yr unknown Cb on loan and a 31yr freebie that no one else wanted just won't do it for me. ☘HH.

{Ed002's Note - Filip Benković picked Leicester over Borussia Dortmund, Inter Milan and Chelsea with Spurs also showing an interest. He may well be unknown to you but he is well respected in the game. I hope he fails miserably at Celtic so you are not disappointed.}

7.) 01 Sep 2018 13:27:06
The CB has been chased by some big clubs including ours for years and the free that no one wanted was signing foe Swansea till we approach him.

8.) 01 Sep 2018 13:43:30
Just because he was linked to various clubs does not reflect his ability, he may well have potential but we don't need potential, we need ability particularly at the back! The fact he picked leicester over the clubs you mentioned ed tells me that he lacks ambition and favours money, dortmund would have been a great place for him to go! Or maybe these clubs you mentioned are just media hype. Anyway ed I ask again how do we know he is any good and not just another experiment? Please try and reply without being sarcastic. We all know we can't afford to have another experiment at the back. ☘HH.

{Ed002's Note - Just forget it then. Try the approach of screaming vile abuse at him and start up a hate group on Facebook and force him out of the club. I truly hope he fails completely and loses Celtic multiple games to keep you happy.}

9.) 01 Sep 2018 13:51:30
I think the boy looks brilliant. I would play him tomorrow with Boyata. The only downer is he will leave before our CK qualifiers next season.

10.) 01 Sep 2018 13:58:30
For years kev, really? And we stole a 31 yr freebie from swansea, lol I should think so! Look I am just a bit concerned about where we are going and the signings we are making, like many fans I am not convinced. We are weaker than we were, no doubt about it. We lost armstrong, dembele and roberts who were first picks. Our defence is poor and we go out and get a freebie from killie, an unknown cb on loan, 2 young boys who are far from first team material and a LB who we punted a year ago. Forgive me for not being ecstatic. ☘HH.

11.) 01 Sep 2018 14:27:55
Benkovic is a coup the board done well in that respect to get him here. Him Boyata and Ajer at the back will tear it up this season.

12.) 01 Sep 2018 14:27:56
Benkovic will be or is the best CB at our club make no mistake this boy is a great player watch and see.

13.) 01 Sep 2018 14:29:41
Would you rather we go out and sign 14 players who are not in our league.

14.) 01 Sep 2018 15:17:56
No marco, but their two centre halfs would walk into our team. ☘HH.

15.) 01 Sep 2018 15:56:18
he has to be a troll 😂 Benkovic is a fantastic signing and hopefully will bring the best out of Jozo as well. 4 solid centre halves in the squad, until big Starvin Marvin comes in and plays a sweeper as part of a one man defence. Solid.

16.) 01 Sep 2018 16:33:50
Armstrong and Roberts first picks?
Guess you didn't watch us last season
Both where on bench when fit.
Both CBs would walk in to our team?
I smell 💩💩💩💩💩.

17.) 01 Sep 2018 17:10:39
Is that supposed to be light hearted kev? ☘HH.

18.) 01 Sep 2018 18:19:54
Goldson and there other CH are rotten they are terrible under pressure and have no pace we will take 3 or 4 off them and I’m willing to wager you on that and I never bet.



24 Feb 2018 22:46:36
Said it before and will say it again, not trying to get McGinn was a mistake. He is better now than Kouassi, Armstrong and more reliable than Rogic and eventually could play the Broony role.


1.) 25 Feb 2018 11:40:54
Top players from other spl clubs that have joined simply haven't stood the test of time. Brown, LG and SA (1 season) when on form have been exceptions. Our top players almost always are brought in from abroad. If the talent isn't there domestically, which it isn't, we have to continue to look further afield. I like McGinn but will he take this team up a level? I don't think so.
From our first team squad there could be GK departures. 3 defenders, 4 mf and 2 strikers. From the loaned out list Christie looks like the only one likely to get any game time.
To replace the likely departures 6 players at a bare minimum have to be brought in. For me they ALL need to be first team ready. 25M might do that. I'd say we won't go north of 12.

2.) 26 Feb 2018 13:40:19
Scott McDonald, Caldwell, Robson, Hartley, McNamara, Mark Wilson, Stokes, Mulgrew, Agathe etc

all our own youth players are domestic as well.

Paul Lambert was developed at SPL clubs

sure there has been as many failures but you can count as many failures we have signed from foreign leagues also.

What about this for a "recent" Hoops select;

Lustig VVD Denayer KT
Forrest Calmac Broony Jota
Moussa, Kyogo.


1.) 22 Oct 2021 07:27:20
Ad wanyama to that bag of tricks.

2.) 22 Oct 2021 15:26:55
I like Jota a lot so far too, but I would have Scotty Sinclair on the left of my "recent 11". Great player for us and his goal scoring stats from the left wing takes some beating.



12 Oct 2021 22:14:26
Very disappointed in NL. Thought he was above playing the blame game. Particularly when he brought in Barkas and Ajeti. A decent goalie, even keeping Gordon, and a robust CF like Dykes (limited but would score goals for us) would have made a big difference. He has to look in the mirror and ask why players stopped playing for him


1.) 13 Oct 2021 06:22:07
i think he is right to call them out he will be hurting badly still with loosing the title last season do you think those players that downed tools because they did not want to be there are hurting still for last season not 1 bit celtic means nothing to them now. and it was not him they stopped playing for it was celtic they stopped playing for and us fans and destroyed a historic season for us. if a was him i would name them.

2.) 13 Oct 2021 10:41:32
UI Lennon knew who they were and who wasn't putting in the effort so why play them?
How must the guys on the bench have felt knowing there were players putting in little effort keeping them out the team? What a kick in the haw maws that would have been for them.

3.) 13 Oct 2021 12:10:13
There's blame on everybody which is what Lennon doesn't seem to want to acknowledge. He quite right to call out the attitude of some players he feels let him down but he also oversaw the demise of an absolute winning machine and has to take his share of responsibility for that.

4.) 13 Oct 2021 13:52:58
kev to be fair to Lennon Celtic were downsizing and that's why lenny got the job mate. probs the reason BR jump ship to. he seen it and left before he got the blame for it. last season was a disaster for many many reason i think the players have got off very lightly and lenny seems to be taking the blame for it all off some folk.

5.) 13 Oct 2021 14:11:54
Because it was mainly the same players who had won every trophy for the past 3/ 4 years. The only difference on the surface was we had a worse manager.

6.) 13 Oct 2021 18:33:08
lennys first full season back he brought in 11 players and done a treble and a few who were already there were his players from first time around.

7.) 13 Oct 2021 19:48:54
How can you say we were downsizing when we kept all the players?
If we were downsizing we would have sold Edouard, Ajer, Christie, Calmac and anyone else we rec'd a bid for.
Lennon was purely to blame for this whole mess, he took a team that won 4 trebles and destroyed there moral, fitness and desire.
I have mentioned this before many times.
when Lennon came out after we lost the euro tie and said there were players that didn't want to be there, any other manager would have dropped those said players or would have had them sold.
Lennon needs to shut his mouth and p**s off, Oh you mentioned that he won a treble in his first full season back but you seem to forget that we were lucky that they imploded after the winter break or we might not have made it to 9IAR.

8.) 14 Oct 2021 00:08:34
Jonbhoy, fully agree with the latter part of what you said. If what he said was true, he shouldn't have said anything and kept it in-house. He should have been man enough to take the defeat and shoulder responsibility. He was the Celtic Manager for christ's sake, he should have at least acted with dignity, which to me means accepting responsibility.
To me he lost the dressing room, and maybe never had the dressing room entirely with him from the start of his second term.
He should never have got the job in the first place. Too angry, too temperamental, and not much of a coach. His overall managerial record verifies that.
It is in the past now, and has been since the start of the year. Lennon should be acting in a dignified manner, not playing a blame game. He should be careful about naming players though, because they could open up themselves. Where would that get us, and for what?
Lennon should shut up, and say nothing at all. If directly asked a question, he shouldn't feed the media parasites, but either say nothing or respond "No Comment! ".

9.) 14 Oct 2021 11:33:36
Lennon not fully to blame for everything but he shouldn't have got the job in the first place His decision making was terrible in more than one occasion the signs were there for all to see back in 2019 only the die hard fans that couldn't take off their green glasses couldn't see how bad and quick we were falling in football standard I get that he loves the club and loves football but really I can't see him get a decent club again.



03 Oct 2021 14:02:47
If Ajeti is a better bet than Gioumakious (even if not fully fit) we are in trouble. Same goes for Bitton over Mccarthy. Early days for both but by now l would have thought both should at least be able to contribute from the bench at least.




02 Oct 2021 19:13:39
How much of a miss was not signing Toney? Money spent on Ajeti and Barkas would have secured him. Sometimes you have to push the boat out a bit but last few windows it has been cheap options.


1.) 02 Oct 2021 20:20:40
Toney was definitely one that got away.
Playing under Lennon would’ve suited Toney also because Lennon liked constant crosses into the box but that didn’t suit Edouard or Ajeti’s style.
Toney is also good at defending set plays and I don’t think we would’ve conceded as many set piece goals last season if Toney was in the Celtic team.



27 Sep 2021 22:01:36
Gedceltic, listing K Dembele as a factor in our injuries is stretching it. What has he ever done? Main point, was giving Mccarthy a 4 year contract a board decision and based on what? Not his recent club form. Reputation? When was his last cap for Republic. Our problems are in part down to signing players who nobody watched as they couldn't get a game, Ajeti is another.


1.) 28 Sep 2021 01:06:37
Agree 1000%.

2.) 28 Sep 2021 09:46:24
pretty sure we wanted Ajeti when he was at Basel so we would have watched him then, as for dembele he's still a young kid and was featuring a lot in pre season before the injury, which was a horrific tackle.

3.) 28 Sep 2021 10:37:12
Maybe it's the wrong Ajeti? We have 'previous' in that area ha ha. Seriously though all you need to do is log onto 'Welcome to Paradise' and go to the current squad - We have 4 'keepers, 12 defenders and 12 midfield, with four listed strikers. it's not the amount of injuries, but the positions affected because we have a lot less quality to call on to step-in than previous seasons, middle to front. Therefor, we have to rely on younger, inexperienced guys or resort to Bitton, Soro and the afore mentioned, underperforming Ajeti - until the cavalry arrive from injury and the window opens in the new year. Although as UI and I have mentioned, there must be some free agents?

4.) 28 Sep 2021 11:03:16
OAB I seen Daily Ranger had an article ‘7 free agents Celtic could sign’ …. one of the names is Jozo ???as if we don’t have enough problems, he’s not played since he left us 19/ 20 …. Definitely agree though there must be some that are fit and could do a turn.

{Ed007's Note - Me and Mikey spoke through THIS list yesterday - nothing really jumped out at us.}

5.) 28 Sep 2021 12:13:42
Guys for Celtic there is NO point in signing free agents.
We have seen the problems Ange has had trying to get the players we brought in match fit.
This problem would only get worse by signing players who have not played in months and never did pre season training, it would take us to December to get them match fit.

6.) 28 Sep 2021 12:15:41
Interesting list mate, few crackin footballers listed but best ones would be high wages …. what position/ positions would you say need immediate attention mark mate?

{Ed007's Note - I don't think we need to do to much be honest, KP - we need to concentrate on getting the players we have back from injury, fitter and match sharp. We've been really unlucky with Kyogo and Jacko getting injuries but seriously who's going to come in and be happy to be 3rd or 4th choice in a few weeks? If anything I would look at an experienced CB, Mangala that was at Man City was let go by Valencia and is still only 30 but as Tim says above, what level of fitness are these players at?}

7.) 28 Sep 2021 14:55:50
Yeah definitely I agree mate.

{Ed007's Note - ?

8.) 28 Sep 2021 16:11:49
i know he’s getting on abit but surely branslav ivanovic is a better option than Starfelt we need a leader at the back and he was still looking sharp last season when I seen him playing on a free could be a good option what you guys think.

Also thought Mccarthy would start. Soro isn't the answer so clearly he still has some way to go in terms of fitness.

On his day an unbelievable talent. Different player to Moussa so hard to compare but both supreme talents. Pity both saw us a stepping stone as both could have been legends.

If he is as good as he clearly thinks he is surely there is some form of performance/ appearance wage structure that would suit both parties?

No way Howe made it up to Scotland, into Lennoxtown without some hack getting wind of it. Especially if a players da finds out. Seems like cobblers, the rest of it seems probable tho.

Think the criticism of MJ is a bit OT. He has been unfortunate with injuries, like Forrest in his early days. Yes he is lightweight but many of our stars over the years have been of similar physiques. He is on a similar wage to many who haven't kicked a ball for 1st team. Might be wrong bit I still think he is a player.




Click To View This Thread

26 Sep 2021 17:50:56
Agree BB. A half fit Griff would be more productive than Ajeti. Mccarthy still looks miles off it, Soro is at best a defensive sub, Starfelt is much like Duffy, immobile and clumsy. Squad is threadbare. Managers tactics can only be implemented with large and fit squad, we have neither. I honestly thought we would win the league at a canter a few weeks back, now that seems like a dream.




Click To View This Thread

16 Sep 2021 20:03:10
Said before the game that Soro wasn't the answer. He simply isn't good enough. Turnbull and Rogic have fantastic ability but I agree both are slow and lack the energy to play together. They wouldn't have been though if Calmac was fit.




Click To View This Thread

10 Sep 2021 10:25:29
For me time to try a few of the signings for what on paper is a straightforward game;

Juranovic, Welsh, Starfelt, Montgomery
Calmac, Mccarthy
Rogic, Turnbull, Ababa (if fit) or Forrest
Georgia (even if half fit! )

With Ralston, Jota, Scales, Kyogo, etc to add the squad is now far stronger looking.

Ajeti is never going to make it with us. He will be out in January on loan if we can't get a buyer. Even with Kyogo injured I doubt he will feature much.
