Seems to have gone quiet on the CCV and Jota front. Read somewhere that Jota might not be as keen as Celtic to do the deal. Anyone heard anything similar or better still, to the contarary?


1.) 20 Jan 2022 09:55:35
Celtic can wait until the end of the season and use the CL group stage money, that will be coming our way.



14 Jan 2020 23:34:50
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.

Hats off to Ange, staff and players. Never thought it possible when he was appointed, glad to be well wrong on that. Anyone know what's the story with Julian? Also, if CCV thinks the EPL is a better fit for him then id say he's wrong. IMO he is too short and not quick enough and would struggle. He stands out in our league but every now and them gets outpaced (few times in last cpl games) so when things are good why risk moving? Either way we need 2 CH's for next season.




09 May 2022 19:29:33
Questions for next season, Maeda, Kyogo, Jota (if he stays) or
Abada, GG, Jota
Or a front 2 of Kyogo and GG playing 3-5-2 or 4-4-2?
I love Maeda's workrate and commitment but for me Abada is a better finisher and creates more. Good position to be in though as both will only get better. HH.


1.) 09 May 2022 21:16:12
Some GG stats Buzz
Games 27
Starts 14
Goals 14
Assists 1
One touch finish 13
2 touch finish 1
Missed 31 games this season
Fully fit next year he can be frightening!

2.) 09 May 2022 21:54:59
That’s impressive Steff ?
His best years are ahead of him and that’s good for Celtic.

3.) 09 May 2022 22:05:35
Steff51, myself and Ed discussed on the Live Chat that Giorgious upfront with Kyogo in the 'No.10' free role behind him could be interesting.

Whatever the scenario, it's a great 'problem' for Ange of who to pick, which formation to play, when they're both fit/ in form.

The lad from Bodo (Solbaken) could be good back up to our main two.

☘️ ? ☘️.

4.) 09 May 2022 22:53:39
Ange mentioned he wants a squad that will compete for 60 games a season.
Celtic didn’t quite manage that this season because Ange decided to play a weakened side against the Norwegians in the 2nd leg.
There was a big debate on here whether he made the correct choice.
I personally stood by Ange’s decision because we were 3-1 down and playing on a plastic pitch in Norway.
Ange prioritised the league title this season but I’m sure Ange will want to build a decent enough squad, so he won’t need to play such a weakened Celtic side again.

5.) 10 May 2022 02:16:02
I'd like to see a 442 with GG and Kyogo up top with Abada on the right and Jota on the left ( wasted on the right imo) . Mcgregor and O'Reilly in the middle of the park. A new CB and LB to go with Juranovic and CCV? Maybe a new GK aswell?



02 May 2022 19:32:32
Now that we are almost guaranteed CL entry we need to back Ange with a hefty transfer kitty. He has built a decent team thus far but we need strength in depth and much as I admire how Taylor and Starfelt have performed they will struggle in CL, as will Hatate, ORiley, Turnbull and Rogic despite the fact they are all great players. Hopefully clear out will help - Barkas, Boli, Julian, Ajeti.


1.) 02 May 2022 21:01:15
Can't see wholesale spends despite any windfall. Do better with what we have and where sensible add some quality will be the expected outcome. Early days for a few of those you listed. They could develop on hugely.



01 May 2022 14:42:45
Hatate needs a rest, Ralston is good cover but not a patch on JJ. We were poor today so a draw is a good outcome. If Mccarthy can't get a game now he never will. If we are to go into the CL we need to bring in a LB, an attacking midfielder with dig and another CB.


1.) 01 May 2022 15:02:49
I agree about hatate. The fans are starting to get on his back. he has given two interviews in Japan that are sort of cry for help. he is clearly struggling. But he has stepped up and delivered at times and will get well deserved winners medal.

2.) 01 May 2022 15:03:53
Do we have an option to bin McCarthy or did he got a full 4 year unconditional deal when he signed? HH.



16 Apr 2022 00:24:01
Whilst Kyogo may not be fit to last 90 or 120 mins I would 100% start him. No point saving him for 60-70 mins as by then the game could be won or lost. For me that is a bit like leaving your best penalty taker to take the 5th pen. Get him on from the start, get them rattled early and put them in their box. It won't be easy but we should have too much drive and energy to see us through. HH.

Don't blame Bain, I'd offer him cash to sweeten the deal, best for all parties he moves on.

Not sure Turnbull is what we need to take us to next level. If money was right I'd sell. Decent at deadballs tho.

Bain is average at best, Seigrist will provide cover as we will have a heavy schedule. Tried and tested and free, no brainer for me.


{Ed007's Note - So why give Bain a new contract in January if we knew Siegrist was available on a free 6 months later? We've just got rid of one GK who was stuck in limbo and Barkas still has to return next summer. If Siegrist is going to No.2 we're paying Bain for sitting in limbo and pushing one of the best young 'keepers in the UK down the pecking order.
I'm not question signing a player of Siegrist quality, Chinks, I'm pointing out the problems it causes the squad as it stands and if we knew we were going to bring in a GK why did we extend Bain's contract 6 months ago?}

Love it if this is accurate. Wee man could be the difference in the run in. Without him we might still do it, but it will be a whole lot easier if he is a available.

Hope so, time for change long overdue and i think she is great.


{Ed007's Note - I've never heard of this Copeland character but the questions that should be getting asked is who hired him for the gig, did they know the type of "act" they were booking and also is there any relationship there that got him this well paid gig to spout his nonsense.
Was the racism only aimed at our Japanese players, living in Scotland and knowing what we know I seriously doubt it.}

Hart, JJ, CCV, Starfelt, Taylor
Calmac, Hatate, Oreilly, Jota, GG, Abada

Only debate for me is whether Turnbull starts ahead of Hatate.

The sanctions will make it difficult for everyone in Russia and given the Uefa and FIFA stance I'd say yes. Much as this may annoy our support.

When we had Idiguchi, Rogic, Turnbull and Bitton missing and he can't get in the starting 11 I think that tells a story. I agree with Buzz, can't see him playing much this season, or the next 3! A club signing that sadly doesn't look like it will work.
