Ed is there any truth in the Roberts bid or is it online nonsense?

Ice Man

{Ed007's Note - There's not been any bid made but there might be in the future. I'd imagine that there won't be much happening anywhere transfer wise while thing are so uncertain regarding the footballing timetable.}

On that note Ed what is likely to happen with the transfer window? I’m sure it normally opens round about 1st July. Can that still happen with all the uncertainty surrounding the leagues or is it likely to be delayed until decisions have been made on how and when the football season finishes.

{Ed007's Note - I've no idea what they're going to do mate and it's one of the most important things that needs to be settled pretty soon - probably even before decisions regarding leagues or matches being played - along with expiring contracts, loan deals ending, sponsorship deals.
As things stand come June 30th we'll only have Scott Bain as a first team GK.}

I've been told that Celtic are extremely confident Edouard will sign a new and improved contract and that the club are pushing hard to sign Ivan Tony in the summer who they believe we take over the mantle when Eddy eventually moves on.

Good news but what was the point of Klimala? Seems a big outley for a future squad player?

Thought I'd share this with you guys. Was speaking to a guy today from Leicester (not a City fan. Grew up an Evertonian) . Anyway we were chatting football and told him I was a Celtic fan. He said you guys are getting a new shirt manufacturer aren't you? I told him nothing was confirmed but Adidas has been mentioned. He told me it definitely will be Adidas as the firm he works for has a contract with Adidas doing retail signs and he is coming back up to Scotland in the next few months to put them into 2 Celtic stores. The first one being at the stadium.

Ice Man

1.) 20 Feb 2020 11:14:02
I thought it was an open secret since the end of last year that we were moving to Adidas?

Surely though any signage wouldn't be put up to the close season as opposed to the next few months as New Balance will have the rights to the end of the season.


2.) 20 Feb 2020 12:30:46
We’re now in mid February and the season finishes in May. That to me would be the next few months.


3.) 20 Feb 2020 12:38:48
Good move should be lucrative. heard that's who the sevvies want when the mighty Hummel chuck it.


4.) 20 Feb 2020 16:01:59
Not unless adidas see the advert pimping themselves out for a new manufacturer 😂😂😂.

Just going to share what I've heard from a mate down south. A few teams including Hibs and Rapid Vienna interested in taking Bayo on loan. Celtic only willing to allow this if they can bring in Jordan Rhodes. Sheff Wed currently looking to bring in another striker with Connor Wickham and Josh Windass being targeted before allowing Rhodes to leave.

Ed I've heard a rumour Griff could be set for a move to the MLS. Have you heard anything?

Ice Man

{Ed007's Note - No mate.}


1.) 13 Jan 2020 20:44:06
Find that quite plausible, Ice Man: he'd be the kind of player, at the stage in his career, that they often look to bring in. I would never write-off Griff, but wonder what the fø©« is going on with him.


2.) 13 Jan 2020 20:59:17
Could he be teaming up with the manager that got the best out of him?

Ed do you know the situation regarding Bayo at the club. Is Lenny happy to have him as the fourth striker or could we see him going out on loan somewhere. I must admit the kid doesn't do it for. I don't really think he suits our style of football and have not been too impressed albeit he's not played a lot of games. If Lenny sticks with two up front I would like to see someone else come in maybe on loan or on a bosman.

Ice Man

{Ed007's Note - I don't think Bayo has much of a future at Celtic the way things stand. If there was the chance of a permanent move (with a fee involved) I don't see the Club standing in his way but it seems more likely that a loan will be arranged soon.}

Birger Meling joins Nimes for €1m. A bargain for me. Would have liked to have seen him sign for us.

Ice Man

1.) 12 Jun 2020 18:42:42
I am surprised with Celtic.
A 25 year old International player for under a million pounds.
That is normally the kind of player we try and sign.
Celtic must think he is not good enough.


2.) 12 Jun 2020 20:40:13
Maybes the scouts have watched him more than the few times our fans have?


3.) 12 Jun 2020 21:34:07
True Jimtim maybe there is a reason this kid has not moved onto bigger things but at that price I would have taken a punt on him especially as we paid £3m for Bollingoli 🙈.


4.) 12 Jun 2020 23:00:14
Strange one this have Nimes not just been relegated to the French 2nd tier?


5.) 13 Jun 2020 02:48:00
Maybe, he didn't want yo come to Celtic. His preference could have been somewhere else.


6.) 13 Jun 2020 06:03:18
I'd take a punt on you IceMan over Bolingoli! Meling had a great game against us at CP when he scored but I have to say the other times I seen him he didn't really stand out. Not sure why so many people kept mentioning his name. I've got no problems people suggesting players that have caught their eye at all but it's got to be after more than a few games. At that sort of price he might well be better than Bolingoli, at least Meling is actually a left back. But truth is I don't want us to be taking any more punts on that position. We got 25m for a LB that I think most of us agreed was worth that. So let's go and get a bit of real quality.

Stevie, 2 clubs up, 2 clubs down in Ligues 1 and 2 mate.


7.) 13 Jun 2020 11:06:18
Cheers Jim 👍.


8.) 13 Jun 2020 21:16:16
Or £4m for kouassi, at least we've seen that melling is decent.

To Ed or any of the readers who have experienced this is the past, what are the chances of getting a season ticket for next season if you are on the waiting list. I've been on the list since December and have no idea what the chances are?

Ice Man

{Ed007's Note - I've no idea mate, sorry.}


1.) 06 Jun 2020 19:19:48
I would say the chances would have been nil if the present situation was normal but with the current situation you might find some are not prepared to renew for different reasons so you might be lucky.


2.) 06 Jun 2020 22:34:34
I think your chances might be good as I know 4 ticket holders not renewing due to this virus some can't afford as they're not sure how their financial state will be if they can't get back to work in time and a couple just can't justify paying out that amount of cash when they've a family to support so it's went down in their priorities so I'd imagine this could be the same for a lot of people.


 

 

28 May 2020 22:44:22
Maybe a bit left field with this one but I'd like to see John Hughes come in as part of the back room staff. I've always thought the teams he managed played a really good brand of football and have always enjoyed listening to his philosophies on the game. Anyone I've heard who has played under him only have good things to say about him. Would be a good option in my opinion.

Ice Man

1.) 28 May 2020 23:30:49
Not a bad idea Ice Man, and he's Celtic to the core. HH.


2.) 29 May 2020 09:11:58
Loved the big fella! Not the most talented but always gave his all. What a goal at ipox on Paddies day!


 

 

23 May 2020 15:46:08
I love Griff I really do but can you just imagine if we still had big Moussa and paired him up top with French Eddy.

Ice Man

1.) 23 May 2020 16:52:40
We did right before he left and they looked absolutely fantastic together.


2.) 23 May 2020 17:15:13
If Griff stays relatively free of injuries and keeps his marbles in place next season he'll be 1st or 2nd top scorer for us next season. Still a very underrated player in the eyes of many. HH.


3.) 23 May 2020 22:00:07
Keeps his marbles in place what a delightful phrase during mental health awareness week.

I’m hoping to see Kerr McInroy in and around the first team squad. Was progressing really well before a bad injury. Hopefully now he’s fit his progress will continue.

Bayo only scored twice. How does that make him 3rd top scorer Edouard, Christie, Griff, McGregor, Jullien, Forrest, Ajer, Johnston, Ntcham &Elyounoussi all scored more than him.

Scores a lot of goals and different types of goals. Good hold up play. Doesn’t have the technical ability of Eddy but seems to come alive in the box. I would be happy to see him signed. Perhaps Strachan can use their relationship to persuade him.

I don’t understand the hype around Dykes. Yes he played well the first game against us. The next game at Parkhead he never kicked the ball in 90 minutes. And again the 2-2 game he was anonymous until big Julien made a mess of it allowing him to set up a goal. This guy scored 13 goals in over 100 appearances for QOS in the Championship and Livi want £2m for him. Think I’ll pass.

I am currently on the waiting list and know for a fact that last week there were just over 7,200 on the waiting list. Fast forward 7 days and all of a sudden there are 17,000. Not a chance. Ask yourself this if there were 17,000 on the waiting list Why did the club extend the renewal date for a third time two days before the deadline and not just sell the remaining seats to fans on the waiting list.

Absolutely no chance there are 17,000 on the waiting list. The club are trying to scaremonger current season ticket holders into renewing. Last week there were just over 7000. If there were 17,000 the club would not have extended the renewal deadline last week.

I think it would be very difficult to turn down an offer of £30m for Eddy. We must have a replacement in the pipeline should this happen or even better bring them in now on preparation for Eddy leaving this summer or next. I like the look of the boy Weissman at Wolfsberger if there’s anything in that rumour.
