Been told that CCV is seriously considering a move to Fulham next season. Guarantee of 1st team Football in EPL and being able to stay in London are big factors in addition to a better salary I'd imagine.
Personally he has been our best signing of the season how he wasn't at least shortlisted for POTY is beyond me really hope we can convince him to stay he's far more important to team than Jota who is a top player but CCV at heart of defence has made a huge difference.


1.) 04 May 2022 15:05:18
If true he will be very hard to replace but I'm sure Ange has us covered either way.

2.) 04 May 2022 15:30:27
I'm not surprised GGGG.
If he goes back down south then he'll go with our blessings. HH.

3.) 04 May 2022 16:59:13
I'm certain there will be loads of speculation, rumours and even mischief-making, regarding our current squad and even our manager. All we can do is sweat through another dreaded windae until the deadline passes and hope we end up stronger then before we went in.

4.) 05 May 2022 07:23:30
Well if true he'll be another player who made the wrong decision in joining the land of milk and honey.

5.) 05 May 2022 08:28:08
Giving up CL football to play for Fulham. If that's his mentality feck him. No one is bigger than Celtic.

6.) 05 May 2022 09:01:51
All about individual choices, CL and potentially higher profile or a relegation battle. No offence to Fulham but that’s the reality.

7.) 05 May 2022 18:11:46
Celtic have given him the stage to perform and perform he has.

He's no VVD but personally I think he'd be selling himself short by even going into a pub in Fulham, let alone sign for them.

Given that CL football is almost guaranteed, I'd be advising him to test himself against some of the best players in club football and then see who comes in for him in the next year or two.

☘️ ? ☘️.

Fulham will only get relegated next season like they do every time they get back into the pub league.



28 May 2021 15:36:54
According to a newspaper breakdown in talks with Eddy Howe and in advanced talks with other candidate.


1.) 28 May 2021 15:48:48
Saw that. If it's true its a shambles. HH.

2.) 28 May 2021 16:01:57
advanced talks with Lennedy.

3.) 28 May 2021 16:36:15
If it is Lennedy they would need to close the whole top tier on the stadium.

4.) 28 May 2021 17:47:56
If it's Lennedy they will need to erect the fencing round the stadium again.

5.) 28 May 2021 18:52:26
reckon its keane.



28 May 2021 07:32:04
My mates (security at Paradise) just text to say he won't be needed today but to be on standby for bank holiday Monday.
Oh well it seems like the wait to continues.




26 May 2021 07:26:11
My mate who works in security at Paradise was briefed yesterday regarding media conference on Friday afternoon with the announcement on incoming manager.
Looks like we have finally got this over the line with the announcement to be made on Friday.


1.) 26 May 2021 09:33:56
I hope it's true, Personally I didn't think we would hear anything until the 1st of June.

2.) 26 May 2021 11:35:44
Nice one GGGG, as long as it isn't Lennedy 👍.

3.) 26 May 2021 12:21:30
They were told to expect upwards of 5k fans after the announcement even though they didn’t disclose what it was it’s surely the inevitable.



19 Apr 2021 09:03:41
Lucien Favre now in the running to become next Celtic manager. The Swiss unemployed former Dortmund manager is on shortlist to replace Neil Lennon and is believed to have had talks with the clubs hierarchy over the role.
I think he would be a good acquisition personally.


1.) 19 Apr 2021 10:18:15
This is more like it. Hope its true, Bring in Harkin and Maresca to support him.

2.) 19 Apr 2021 10:33:37
Jose has been sacked can we go for him or will spurs go for Howe Dun dun dun.

3.) 19 Apr 2021 10:35:15
GGGG, the last I read he was looking for 75K a week to manage in Turkey?

If he was affordable then he has the C. V. to do a job for us but it will be closer to 75 empty Irn Bru bottles than 75K 😄

I'd imagine much will depend on the incoming D. O. F.

4.) 19 Apr 2021 10:36:28
From Lake Geneva to the River Clyde.

5.) 19 Apr 2021 10:49:40
The state we are in, Mr Magoo woukd be a step up.

6.) 19 Apr 2021 11:52:15
No way jose, cheat.

7.) 19 Apr 2021 11:56:23
Jose will always be 'that Porto manager'.

8.) 19 Apr 2021 12:26:34
Cheetin basa.

9.) 19 Apr 2021 12:34:22
Pedro 71 if he was looking for €70k in Turkey I think it shows that he is a potential candidate. What I’m saying is if he’s willing to manage in Turkey then I think he’s a realistic option.
I think we could stretch to £40k and perhaps a bonus for Champions league qualification of another £1m.

10.) 19 Apr 2021 13:28:29
No one is in the running. This board have shut down. They don’t care anymore. Kennedy will be announced in September.

11.) 19 Apr 2021 14:35:52
If there was one reason for me giving up my season ticket it would be if he got the job.

12.) 19 Apr 2021 16:04:00
Today was the day to announce a new manager. The fact we haven’t done it says we aren’t even close. Probably aren’t even looking.
Lawwell is waiting for Kennedy to go for a shower. Kennedy probably deliberately hasn’t washed in weeks so he doesn’t get ambushed.

13.) 19 Apr 2021 16:25:09
Degsy that’s pathetic.

14.) 19 Apr 2021 16:47:09
Degsy, if my teenage bhoy came out with patter like that, I would be disappointed and he's only known Celtic winning trophies, year after year, since he was 7 years of age.

What makes you think we aren't close? Seriously, come on.

There's no one on this site that's happy, well maybe except for Hoops88 but that's a by the by.

Let's see what transpires and in the meantime keep the faith.

15.) 19 Apr 2021 17:02:51
Degsy I thought it was funny 🤷‍♂️.

16.) 19 Apr 2021 17:23:47
GGGG, as ever it will come down to the board and you're right, hypothetically he's an option and by all accounts a good coach 👍.

17.) 19 Apr 2021 22:33:29
We are all on tenderhooks here, but to come out wi pish like that is just lazy and poor.

Alright Ed? Have you heard anything regarding Jota? Seems to be taking a bit longer than I would have thought to conclude deal if fee has already been agreed and player wanting to come back.


{Ed007's Note - No, there's nothing changed with Jota.}

1.) 14 Jun 2022 22:14:18
Hi Ed, not sure if this has been mentioned but it does appear that we usually wait till a Friday before announcing new signings. I know that we sometimes sign players on deadline day which isn't a Friday. is it a coincidence or to do with the stock market. The 3 japanese boys signed on the 31st of Dec which was also a Friday.

{Ed007's Note - I've never thought about that, David. It might have some bearing on it but I honestly don't know mate.}

2.) 15 Jun 2022 12:03:15
I don't think there is anything to worry about regarding Jota, if there was any hint of him not signing for us the Scottish MSM would take great pleasure in having it splashed all over there back pages.

{Ed007's Note - I'm 99.9% confident that Jota will be signed permanently, it's just the small details in his contract that need to worked out as far as I know.}

3.) 15 Jun 2022 14:08:22
I was thinking the same Ed and also I think the boy is still on holiday.

{Ed007's Note - I'm thinking that Jota's transfer won't be allowed to be completed until the 1st of July when the international transfer window opens - technically Jota is still under (his loan) contract to Celtic until the 30th June.}



26 Sep 2021 17:34:47
We all want to give manager time to get his own squad together and most accept that we probably won't win title this season during rebuild.
I'm looking at October's fixtures and if we don't start winning games away from home we could find ourselves in danger of not even finishing 2nd.
That mob are bang average and we are 6 points behind them already, if we end up 10 points or more behind come November I can see our fans starting to turn.
Don't want to be all doom and gloom but our squad looks thread bare just now with 3-4 injuries to key players, hopefully as they start to return our form does too but I think Europa league games are too much aswell with the current state of squad.


1.) 26 Sep 2021 17:53:58
It was criminal going into the transfer window with 4 strikers and coming out of the transfer window with only 3 strikers.
It’s came back to bite Celtic big time and it’s the main reason we’ve dropped 5 points in a week.



08 Aug 2021 07:57:55
Watched Mulgrew yesterday and thought why didn't we sign him he is vastly experienced, versatile and still a very capable defender.
He's better than any of our current LB's and was free.
I'm sure his best years are behind him but at this moment in time surely he was worth a 12 month deal?
Delighted with McCarthy deal and know there's others out there like Cahill where you don't need any fee so can offer a decent wage and signing on fee.
If we get McCart from St Johnstone and Cahill that gives us 4 good CB's, then get Doig and Nesbit in from Hibs and let them all gel before getting in more in Winter window.
If Christie leaves before then I would add another but squad it's starting to look better.


1.) 08 Aug 2021 08:23:53
We let Mccart go for nothing can't see him coming back.

2.) 08 Aug 2021 10:28:15
He was playing against rangers he would have uped his game like most do against us.



21 Jun 2021 07:35:26
Club has triggered 1 year extension on Anthony Ralstons contract for next season.
With Laxalt and Kenny returning to parent clubs it makes sense to have a RB on the books with another more than likely coming in during transfer window.


1.) 21 Jun 2021 08:18:54
We'll need a 1st choice RB in as Ralston isn't the answer.

2.) 21 Jun 2021 08:24:24
pedro the answer is in the post buddy. ralston will be for depth in the squad a option encase of injury's.

3.) 21 Jun 2021 08:38:23
A lot of 'white-noise' regarding the squad that doesn't really alter a thing; but so far no BOOM to get the support excited and confident.

4.) 21 Jun 2021 12:10:27
Ralston isn't good enough to even be back up in my opinion. Stupid use of resources.



22 May 2021 07:10:45
Not a rumour Iv heard but I like Nuno Espírito Santo and now he's leaving Wolves after Sunday's match I would like us to make an approach to sign as manager.
He knows Portuguese market and has brought in numerous good players from there for affordable sums for us and his style of play is good to watch.
His knowledge of Eng Championship and BPL is also good and he knows how to win leagues and play well in Europe.


1.) 22 May 2021 10:22:10
Ad like us to get benitez but it ain't happening, if we're down the road with howe then that's our man.

2.) 22 May 2021 10:33:48
There were a few managers I would have preferred and the two above would have made that shortlist. However, we seem to have made our choice and although I am of the 'old school' that thinks the Celtic job would produce a (socially distanced) queue down London Road; we patiently wait and wait some more, hoping it's the right decision?

I’d pay Bain £2k of his Salary and the Dons £4K surely £6/ 8k is suitable for all parties.

The Jota deal has took far too long to get over the line. Surely if the fee was already negotiated with the option to buy clause in his contract and the player has agreed terms and doesn’t have any medical issues it should have been announced weeks if not months ago.
I don’t think there’s anything to worry about but would like it confirmed asap.

I’m not so sure Brazilian or Argentinian players would be great signings. From Juninho to Rafael Shidt or that big donkey Emerson at that mob they don’t have a great history of doing well over here.
I would love to be proved wrong but Brazilians in particular have struggled with the pace and physicality of our league.
Of course every player is different so could work out but personally I’m more excited with players from Scandinavia, France or Netherlands as they seem to do well in Scotland.

I know Taylor improved as the season progressed but I think league is his level. I think he will struggle badly in Champions league and we need a LB at that level as a priority signing.


{Ed007's Note - There'll be more than Taylor will struggle badly at CL level.}

Fully agree. He will play well until January then sign pre contract agreement elsewhere then he can move for a nominal fee in Jan so we don’t have him here when he wants out and we get to save in wages and a nominal fee that we could use to bring in a player on loan for remainder of season.
I think club should sell him for £10m now though and move on with Nesbit for season ahead.

Aye he may have said that in the end but Villa wouldn’t of even placed a bid if we offered what they wanted at the start it would have been signed sealed and delivered.
Obviously we thought we could hold Hibs to ransoms and pay less and it backfired when Villa showed they wanted him more.
It’s well known he’s a Hoops fan and these diplomatic comments were made AFTER he choose Villa.

If I’m honest I liked Anges handling of the press but I felt that Dominic never filled me with confidence with the way he answered and repeated himself.
Time will tell how he does as chief exec, I’m thrilled we have new blood in the role but despite last season in particulars shambles Lawwell generally done a good job in that role and I felt he was always in control when speaking to the media whereas Dominic didn’t.

Nisbett gets in the 18, McCart from StJohnstone aswell and Lewis Ferguson.
Not sure if any are upgrade on what we have in starting 11 but for less than £5m for all 3 I would guesstimate then it would be good start to rebuilding squad.
Add in 3 other £5m rated players in this window and a cpl of highly rated loans from BPL and we will have half a chance.
