Reports saying Celtic have agreed a fee for Giakoumakis of £2.5m and a percentage of any future profit. Apparently we are his preferred option over werder Bremen.

I've read all sorts of 'reports' on this one but I'd hope that the prospect of European football and competing in front of 60K supporters at home would make Celtic his preferred option #giorgious2.

2.) 19 Aug 2021 15:45:24
Reports in Greece saying the deal is done.

3.) 19 Aug 2021 16:12:09
Read that too maybe it's done subject to medical but that's the only place reporting its a done deal.

4.) 20 Aug 2021 09:24:02
I'm hoping Griffiths and Ajeti will get punted. Would like to see Ajeti go on loan to see if he can get fitter, and Griffiths just needs to move on.

5.) 20 Aug 2021 10:03:17
NT, am I the only one who still secretly hopes that Griff can turn it around? lol HH.

6.) 20 Aug 2021 10:37:52
No bestybhoy count me in.

7.) 20 Aug 2021 11:21:51
I think most supporters would love him to turn it around but as my wife once said to me a leopard can't change his spots. I think griff is too set in his ways now to make that big a change.

{Ed007's Note - I'd like to think most right minded supporters are raging that LG is even near our squad. We're well into our European campaign, the League has started and we've played in a League Cup match yet where was Griffiths against AZ?
Left behind at Lennoxtown to work on his fitness, that's yet another preseason he has messed up through his own stupidity and along with everything else (he brought on himself) people are still backing him?
LG turned 31 today, this isn't a young lad that's needing a boot up the backside to get back on track, this is a player who should be regarded as one of the more experienced players in the squad but he has continually let himself, the Club and the fans down.
The only thing I want to see LG turn around is his car out of Lennoxtown and never come back.}

8.) 20 Aug 2021 12:52:42
Can’t argue with that Marco and Ed.

{Ed007's Note - Cheers, Buzz 👍

9.) 20 Aug 2021 13:46:54
LG is unreliable, unfit and a total clown who, it seems can't help himself by embarrassing the club with his behaviour off the park time and time again.

Never Celtic class.



14 Jul 2021 18:33:53
Liel Abada has completed his move to celtic. 5 year deal and will join the squad on the 16th.

Green surfer

1.) 14 Jul 2021 18:48:38
Good news and hopefully more to come soon.

2.) 14 Jul 2021 19:35:09
Big Ange just confirmed the signing on Celtic TV. Great news and hopefully more to come in the next few days.

3.) 15 Jul 2021 11:37:35
Definitely positive news, if the Swedish CB Starfelt arrives and we can add a RB and LB (French guys/ Hickey) fairly quickly then we'll be in a far better place.

I'd imagine he'll be looking at the GK and Striker positions after this.

Would Nisbet from Hibs be an option - thoughts?

4.) 18 Jul 2021 13:56:49
I'd love Doig at LB and Hickey at RB. or Baldock at RB, he's a real aggressive warrior.



21 Sep 2020 14:47:24
Josh Adams has left celtic to join Manchester City, another academy player away. Is something not right with our academy as we seem to be losing player after player just now?

Green surfer

1.) 21 Sep 2020 16:26:39
Seems to be a fair few being poached and it is a worry. Whether it's for financial or career prospect reasons, we need to put a lid on it. With no 'Reserve League' we should either promote to the senior squad or loan-out the best of the bunch to protect the future.

2.) 21 Sep 2020 17:23:00
What’s the point of promoting him to the senior squad if Soro and Turnbull to name two can’t get a start what chance has the boy got. I would wager you won’t see him anytime soon playing for Man City.

3.) 21 Sep 2020 18:14:32
As I said; it was an either - or choice oldkilly. If they have great potential (and can't get near the squad) then loan out before they're unsettled and get snapped-up. I agree he won't feature for City, but I would think they will loan him out like so many others on the books.

4.) 21 Sep 2020 19:06:12
If you were a young player would you really think Lennon would develop you.

5.) 21 Sep 2020 20:07:28
Aye frimpong dembelle Johnstone.

6.) 23 Sep 2020 08:03:50
I think it's because there is no devolepment league anymore so the young boys will only be training or playing friendlies when they can.



31 Jan 2020 16:58:52
Apparently we have approached Newcastle for Christian Atsu. Not sure if it's a loan or buy or even if he's any good anymore. I know he was highly rated when he was younger though.

Green surfer

1.) 31 Jan 2020 17:22:22
Smacks of depression I think.

2.) 31 Jan 2020 17:33:20
He has rejected the move to Celtic.

3.) 31 Jan 2020 17:42:09
Didnt he reject us before When he was going to everton? He's crap anyway, we should be trying for better than that.

4.) 31 Jan 2020 18:28:51
I can understand us bringing in some one on a permanent basis but at this time of the window and looking for loan deals isn't encouraging.

5.) 31 Jan 2020 18:32:12
Atsu is utter pish! He’s done nothing down there! Total and utter desperation as per usual! It’s awrite Johnny Hayes can play on the wing eh!

6.) 31 Jan 2020 19:04:22
Are we believing the gutter press and what's written on twitter now?

7.) 01 Feb 2020 10:04:50
Gutter press totally agree. Why read there garbage. Good luck to Lewis Morgan dream move for him.
Two new lads saying all the right things.
Can't wait to see them play.
Lenny my main grump is a little one the subs at 85 mind etc not enough time to make a name for yourself. Other than that looking forward to Sunday lads.



01 Jul 2019 18:29:25
Arsenal have apparently bid £40 million for Zaha from Crystal Palace. I'm sure I saw it mentioned somewhere that they only had a transfer budget of £45 million? Does this put Napoli in pole position to try and sign KT or have Arsenal found a load more money from somewhere? If he's going to go I think I would prefer he went abroad simply because I can't stand the epl.

Green surfer

1.) 01 Jul 2019 18:41:35
IF were going to go on what we read in the paper or on twitter as gospel then arsenal may have found a buyer for aubamayang who they are apparently willing to sell. Also it was only reported in the media that they had a transfer budget of £45 million which Ian ridiculous for a top 6 EPL club unless they are still shelling out fortunes for their stadium every year.

2.) 01 Jul 2019 19:12:12
If Tierney does in fact want to leave, do you think it would be better to loan him to arsenal for a season for a substantial fee n when he has a gd season we could sell him for even more to another team next season?

3.) 01 Jul 2019 19:46:43
Seem to have a knack of bidding well below the asking price.

4.) 01 Jul 2019 23:57:16
Think they've a few potential suitors for some of their players so they should recoup a fair bit of money back from player sales. Please no Jenkinson involved in the deal Arsenal fans are laughing their baws aff over him being included in the deal. They hate him!

5.) 02 Jul 2019 08:29:55
They have asked Crystal Palace to make the payment in 4 installments. Likely they will be asking Celtic to make payment in installments also.

6.) 02 Jul 2019 16:24:11
Would bite your hand off for half of that tbh. He has a big goal in him but far too injury prone. Question is does he need replaced or is there someone already in the squad that could step up?

I absolutely love the way big Ange is conducting himself as our manager. He is ?% correct, we won't know how far we've come or have to go, to be a top quality side unless we stick to our principles. YNWA.

Green surfer

1.) 24 Nov 2021 21:04:43
Do you think he was taking a pop at some off the teams in Scotland that just come or at there own grounds and park the buson there own 18 yard line? Ofcourse that is up to the individual team how they set out but it does make boaring football until we score .

2.) 24 Nov 2021 22:02:01
Big Ange is only talking about us tony2bhoy. The big man focuses on what is within his control and blocks out the outside noise. I'm in love with him. He's everything we could want in a celtic manager. Is a straight shooter, takes responsibility, plays to his philosophy and never cowers. By next year with investment we could really be moving up a level.

Juranovic has just scored for Legia.

Green surfer

1.) 19 Aug 2021 18:54:54
Sign him.

2.) 19 Aug 2021 19:05:40
It was a belter! That will be him off elsewhere in the Scottish media.

3.) 19 Aug 2021 19:17:38
Juranovic and scales both scored, hopefully a sign of things to come 🤞🏻.

4.) 19 Aug 2021 19:18:43
Scales scored a great header. Our 2 incoming players scoring belters on their fair well games.

5.) 19 Aug 2021 19:28:39
Right! take him aff noo as a precaution.

6.) 19 Aug 2021 19:34:07
What a send off for the legia fans watching from home obviously.

7.) 19 Aug 2021 20:20:52
What a goal Juranovic scored. The Keeper never even moved!



12 Jul 2021 21:45:22
So celtic prepare to launch the new home kit and will expect us to head out in droves to buy it but are spending nothing, all the while gambling again with European football! I will not be buying any of the new kits this season for me or my bhoys. I am really close to the end of my tether. Ed, have you heard anything on the transfer front that might lighten the mood?

Green surfer

{Ed007's Note - Celtic are waiting on you buying those kits before making any signings - that's the deal breaker... if you don't buy kits Celtic won't spend any money.
I wouldn't say on here where a bird's nest is, the embarrassing meltdowns and whinging from grown menare far too funny.
Remember Messi's a free agent 😉 or are the board scrimping and scraping again?}

1.) 12 Jul 2021 22:34:54
Dont think it’s embarrassing to have expected a few signings by now considering cl qualifier is a week away. Same as last season. that's what’s embarrassing 🤷🏼‍♂️.

{Ed007's Note - If you honestly believe Celtic aren't trying to sign players then you're a moron. If you don't know how transfers work then that's your fault, it's been explained a lot over the years - I can only show you the door, you're the one that has to walk through it.}

2.) 12 Jul 2021 22:55:21

{Ed007's Note - It's a hard knock life.}

3.) 13 Jul 2021 11:12:28
Chill ed007 🤪we are all nervous that's all it is. Now let's get all those hungry young lads ready for the season. So the new lads with a mixture of seasoned players. Ajer I want to stay I hear he has a year left then we make no money from him which is bad. Christie can go I'm also not a fan of Mikey Johnston he needed to fill out and get stronger he did not bother it's actually easily done but he has to want to. Im praying ntcham screws the nut.
I will be watching the game tomorrow can't wait till next week.

4.) 13 Jul 2021 16:56:10
FGA - Interesting your views on MJ.
Can I seek some professional advice?
I suffer from "Sevco forearms" - one is a lot bigger and developed than the other for some reason.
Any ideas mate?

5.) 14 Jul 2021 11:25:57
Ed hit the nail bang on the head. People need to chill out . We don’t do it quick enough and everyone’s greetin but if we rushed in and bought sh*te they same people in a few months be complaining we rushed it. Relax, keep the faith HH.



11 Jan 2021 11:53:10
So a minimum of 13 players to self isolate! Well done celtic, what an absolute shambles! I have given up on this season completely now.

Green surfer

1.) 11 Jan 2021 11:55:52
So many misjudgements, from the transfers to this. We are officially a circus act.

2.) 11 Jan 2021 12:02:26
Neil Lennon and Peter Lawell should resign today.

3.) 11 Jan 2021 12:08:50
Bang on JFP! But we all no the won’t! If this isn’t gross misconduct I don’t know what is!

4.) 11 Jan 2021 12:16:13
Totally agree guys. Lawell and Lennon have to go ASAP. This has made us a laughing stock in world football.

Serious questions have to be asked of the board. Surely D. D. cannot approve of this shambles?

Any hopes of TIAR are 100% gone now.

5.) 11 Jan 2021 12:17:06
Said that earlier the club is a farce and the season officially ended today. what team do they put out tonight and who will manage them. jeez what a cluster.



06 Sep 2020 11:18:27
Hi Ed, hope you're keeping well? Do you have any idea what's going on with the Afolabi that we signed from Southampton? Thought he might have featured in some of the preseason games or is he not ready or rated?


Green surfer

{Ed007's Note - Jonathan Afolabi spent the second half of the season on loan out at Dunfermline but that was obviously cut short by Covid. I expect him to go back out on loan as he is at that stage - like a lot of our youngsters - that he needs to be playing regular football for his development to continue.}

1.) 06 Sep 2020 12:43:03
Ah right cool, remember his signing being greeted with a bit of fanfare so thought he must've been thought of highly.

2.) 06 Sep 2020 14:57:03
Seen him on dunfermline tv . he's very raw . but a big rough and tumble battering ram of a bhoy.

3.) 06 Sep 2020 17:56:02
When he was at Dunfermline Stevie Crawford commented on how well he lead the line. He's a bit like Eddie cutting in from the left and uses his strength to get by defenders. He's got a good attitude, a bit like Cameron Harper, when he says he wants to learn and play at the highest level. Issue is everyone says that and the hard work is all in front of him.

Don't see why we would want to take a player on loan who got no game time last season when on loan at a fairly poor West Brom! Thought we were trying to trim the sqaud? Wouldn't be overly impressed with this one, just my opinion though!

Wow the lack of support from some of our support is staggering! Lennon wouldn't give youth a chance and was slaughtered for it, big ange gives youth a chance in a pre season friendly and someone is on here slagging the performance, in a game we won by the way! Do these folk genuinely support the club or just come on here to slag us? Sevco pages for that.
