With NL confirming a deal has been agreed with Southampton am really surprised forster is stalling.
There must be someone else sniffing around him.

Jungle john

1.) 06 Jul 2020 13:02:01
The talk was that he didn't want a loan with an option to buy he wanted the security of a permanent deal. If that's the case and we had a fee agreed for the end of the loan deal then surely we can just pay it now instead of next year.

2.) 06 Jul 2020 13:25:51
I think he was wanting a permanent deal and not a loan one. There’s talk of Crystal Palace making a £25 million bid for eduouard I don’t think he would go there. We need 2 goalkeepers a centre half and a right winger to challenge Forrest.

3.) 06 Jul 2020 13:56:58
Understandable on Forsters behalf. He has around £2M contract with Southampton over the next 2 years. I doubt the biggest hoops fan in the world would write off £60k per week to be part of 10 in a row.
My guess is he will want a significant amount of that paid off in order to move. If Southampton agreed the loan deal it shows he's not going to get a chance down there. I think this one could drag on for a while hopefully we don't let other targets slip through the net in the meantime.

4.) 06 Jul 2020 14:06:39
Understand it from Fraser's point of view with wanting a secure contract but honestly can't see a deal being completed unless celtic pay over the odds.
Apparently he's on 90k a week with Southampton and if he came to us on a permanent deal the most we would likely be able to offer at a push would be 45k a week.
Hopefully no one else comes in for him and we can get a deal done but with time going on I can't see us playing the waiting game.

5.) 06 Jul 2020 15:11:02
Forster has every right to look after himself. Not believing Celtic agreed terms with Southampton without asking Forster if he wanted to return. He's went back on his word, would forget about him and move on. No one is bigger than Celtic.

6.) 06 Jul 2020 21:30:51
You have no idea whether he gave his word on anything ninja.

7.) 07 Jul 2020 00:08:42
BT presenter Darrell Currie claims the Forster deal to Celtic is still ON. 🙏.

8.) 07 Jul 2020 02:58:53
The deal is very much on.



13 Aug 2019 09:51:28
Reports in Norway saying there is no interest at the moment from Celtic for meling.
I think it's more likely Taylor Celtic will go for. very highly rated knows the league so could go straight in to the starting 11.
It wouldn't be a bad move imo.

Jungle john

1.) 13 Aug 2019 10:42:54
I agree Jj
Because Taylor isn't a big name many fans are saying he's Tom Kite. He has been excellent for Killie and I think a move to a bigger club would bring him on leaps and bounds. He's young, he's a strong player and I have no doubt he'd love the move to Paradise. I asked the question before: would KT have been as good a player as he was if he had been playing for any other SPL side? HH.

2.) 13 Aug 2019 11:31:24
Wouldn't call Melling a big name bob.

3.) 13 Aug 2019 12:34:47
The Rosenberg manager is quoted saying he will leave and most if the written press have run this story. yoy never know they just might be right for once.

4.) 13 Aug 2019 12:37:46
Well lots of people are raving about him as the next Messiah. I've no doubt he's a good player, all I'm saying is people shouldn't write off Taylor because he's from the SPL. HH.

5.) 13 Aug 2019 13:33:54
Think a lot are raving about him because we've actually seen him and he stood out like a sore thumb.
He also has plenty experience of winning titles playing internationals and playing in Europe. He's 1st ready.
Taylor is definitely a good player as well with experience in Scotland but will he be good enough to walk straight in to our team?
I don't know. He could be a star or he could need a few years like Christie did.
But end if the day every signing a gamble.

6.) 13 Aug 2019 13:58:54
Totally agree Bob, we got Brown from the SPL and Griffith's HH.

7.) 13 Aug 2019 14:07:47
Not seen much if Taylor but size wise he looks quite small.

8.) 13 Aug 2019 14:09:12
We didn't get Griffiths from spl AGG.

9.) 13 Aug 2019 14:38:01
I would even go as far as to suggest getting Melling and Taylor which would allow boli to be moved further up the pitch.

10.) 13 Aug 2019 14:38:18
How good is Taylor, have to admit I haven’t seen much of him . When we have played Rosenborg meiling has looked their best player.

11.) 13 Aug 2019 15:44:17
I think Taylor is a very decent prospect indeed, not quite 1st team ready although you never know.

Melling is good enough to go straight into the team.

12.) 13 Aug 2019 15:56:24
My mistake Kev83, he was only on loan at Hibs.

13.) 13 Aug 2019 17:42:25
I've seen Meling a fair bit both in the Norwegian league and for the national side, he would be brilliant for us. He's not the biggest of lads though.
With Rosenborg still potentially able to qualify for CL themselves, I doubt them letting him go. they don't really have any good backups in their squad either, and haven't heard any rumours about them linked with any decent defenders.

14.) 13 Aug 2019 21:45:12
Melling stood out everytime we have played them.



12 Aug 2019 16:03:52
Norwegian tv saying we are interested in meling.

Jungle john

🙏 please be true! 🙏



2.) 12 Aug 2019 17:19:03
Would be a fantastic signing but can't see it happening
He is in the last year of his contract though.

3.) 12 Aug 2019 17:52:54
Would be delighted with beiling 😃.

4.) 12 Aug 2019 18:12:15
Yes please. Get it done!

5.) 12 Aug 2019 18:29:09
Would be a good signing and just what we need! That means I can’t see it happening 🤣.

6.) 12 Aug 2019 18:34:33
I really hope so.

7.) 12 Aug 2019 18:37:40
Didn’t Lennon go to Scandinavia on a spying mission about a month ago?

8.) 12 Aug 2019 19:14:36
Can’t remember much of him playing against us, and haven’t seen him play against any1 els, but I’ll go by rest of your comments at he is a really good player. What’s the story behind James Forrest and zenit? More false news I take it couldn’t see him wanting to leave anyway, was just reading about it earlier and see if use knew much about at?

9.) 12 Aug 2019 20:32:10
@irishboy I was over in Trondheim last season for Europa league game and hese a player who stood out to me.

10.) 12 Aug 2019 20:52:17
Irish did you not notice him when he scored within 15 minutes against us of the it's leg of the champions league qualifier kicking off?

11.) 12 Aug 2019 21:37:22
sorry mate I can hardly remember last night and wasn’t even drinking lol I have a short memory about some stuff at isn’t worth remembering. But I go on what some of use say on this and if he’s worth it then hopefully Celtic get the finger out for him, he does sound promising. Let’s hope so because Boli is not a lb, think he will be better lw if he gets the chance.



15 Jul 2019 17:58:04
Any ideas of the 2 players or positions NL is quoted as saying he wants in before the next round of qualifiers?

Jungle john

1.) 15 Jul 2019 18:48:37
I'd guess RB and a Midfielder.

09 Jul 2019 21:16:27
Lennon saying he ain't even heard of Sergio Quintero. Looks like he will not be coming.

Jungle john

1.) 09 Jul 2019 21:21:49
Seen that hopefully Sawyers who we want.

2.) 09 Jul 2019 22:04:09
Would have been unusual that the two Ecuadorian players were inking the contract before a bids made. Could be they're using the club to get their name out there but who knows.

3.) 09 Jul 2019 22:25:47
Meanwhile, Lennon has revealed Sergio Quintero is NOT on Celtic's transfer radar.

The Ecuadorian midfielder insisted earlier on Tuesday he was in talks over a move to Parkhead but the Irishman has shot down those claims.

He said: "Never heard of him. That's names not cropped up at all, he's not popped up on the radar

So that's that then

Tbf would prefer this other Ecuadorian lad Clifterous (spelling) and Sawyers along with RB and CB pronto!

That leaves a month to get a young second choice RB and possibly a ST (considering we have 3 would take a season loan on a rated youngster)

That would be a cracking transfer window.

4.) 10 Jul 2019 01:28:01
Tompo88, it's nice to dream mate lol.

Would be amazing if all that came to fruition, but very unlikely I think.

5.) 10 Jul 2019 05:22:22
Clifterous? Sounds like the peak of a massive vagina!

6.) 10 Jul 2019 06:01:17
Aye i was going to say SOS-Bhoy, we'll do well to get Clifterous, my girl says I haven't found hers in 5 years.

7.) 10 Jul 2019 10:19:47
Hopefully not a case of the club signing a player without the managers approval.

8.) 10 Jul 2019 10:41:24
Clifterious 😂.

9.) 10 Jul 2019 12:39:14
Like they did with wanyama bigbubs?

10.) 10 Jul 2019 12:58:02
Wasn't Shved signed without Rodgers knowing who he was also?

11.) 10 Jul 2019 16:41:25
Slowly but surely that is what's going to end up happening. Once a dof in place they will be in charge of that kind of thing with the head coach getting a bit of input.

12.) 10 Jul 2019 18:21:33
I wouldn't be surprised if board have leaked a few red herrings to try catch leak.

13.) 10 Jul 2019 23:45:40
bravetart I'm sure Ed posted a few facts about the Shved deal which showed it was highly likely BR was telling porkies about not knowing of him.

14.) 10 Jul 2019 23:46:22
Yeah. Wanyama may have worked out however wouldn't fill me with confidence that the manager is being backed. Surely the manager should at least be aware of potential signings?

Until we stop signing 5ft midgets and players who can't win a tackle we will also finish second to this rangers side.
It's early in anges reign but we have only won one big game this season so far. the ghosts of last year are still lingerie are these games.
Still need 4 or 5 players in before deadline. Turnbull and christie posted missing once again.
Kygo isn't trusted by ange to start through the middle it seems.
Still no lb or ball playing cb. plenty of work required on and off the park.

Jungle john

1.) 29 Aug 2021 16:20:41
My word any more negativity you would like to add JJ. Ok so we lost to our biggest rivals, yes they will celebrate it as would we had we won. But to say Ange doesn’t trust Kyogo absolute crap the manager has actually admitted he may have got it wrong starting Edouard through the middle. Plenty of positives from today IMO. One game doesn’t make a season. But Jesus why slag Kyogo after what he has produced so far and as for another 4-5 in before tues get real. Rant Over Hail Hail.

2.) 29 Aug 2021 16:35:01
Get a grip. we lost fair play, long way to go especially after last season.



27 Aug 2021 06:15:19
Starfelt is taking a lot of abuse, however most defenders in our price bracket would get exposed with the high line and powder puff midfield we have. not a decent challenge made all game.
We will have to accept a jekyll and Hyde season where we look gd in some games and get exposed in others.
It's angeball after all.

Jungle john

1.) 27 Aug 2021 08:15:06
They couldn't score we basically scored 2 goals for them! I don't call that getting exposed that's just making life difficult for yourself.

2.) 27 Aug 2021 08:25:28
DTP we were all over the place defensively at time with AZ getting in behind our fullbacks. They need better cover from our midfield.

3.) 27 Aug 2021 08:47:21
They did have loads of possession and often passed through us and at one point I thought we were going to fold - like Celtic of old.
However, both their goals were gifts and they missed one absolute sitter and although it was a very difficult game, we won it fair and square with more good defending, clearing and blocks - than errors.

4.) 27 Aug 2021 08:57:56
Thats a bread and butter clearance nothing to do with the way we play, school boy stuff and it's not the first time, he needs to cut out the errors, we'll see how many make excuses for him if he does it against sevco.

5.) 27 Aug 2021 09:29:37
Starfelt is getting abuse for making a james hunt of an easy clearance . I thought the midfield even big rogic gave as good as they got . getting outfouled doesn't mean outfought . if Hart and starfelt hadn't messed up we would have won that game as the goals gave them encouragement and momentum when they needed it .

6.) 27 Aug 2021 09:35:27
To me Starfelt needs to work on his awareness. the penalty that he gave away v Hearts he had no idea that Boyce was behind him and tried to take a touch when he didn't have time to take a touch and then last night, nobody from AZ near him. he could and should have just let the ball go by him and Ralston was behind him again with no AZ player in sight.
In fairness to the defence, second half we defended for our lives and Hart made a couple of excellent saves - seen the movie before but we usually end up losing a goal in dying moments.
One thing is for sure, Angeball ain't going to be boring, strap yourself in lads!

7.) 27 Aug 2021 09:55:22
Greentree you're missing the point. Being put under pressure away from home in Europe is part and parcel of European football.

8.) 27 Aug 2021 10:06:45
Starfelt had a good second half, the own goal was just an outrageous blunder, don't think he should be getting all this criticism because of it, Hart, has always been guilty of blunders all the way through his career, although I think Welsh has to take a lot of the blames as well, he just slowed his run back instead of speeding up.
I think the main problem is this playing out from the penalty box, if the opposition have very speedy forwards, they can put you under intense pressure straight away.

9.) 27 Aug 2021 11:08:23
I actually thought our defence held them back they had to go at us, which they did for 90 mins when we do that to teams we score 4.5.6. so chill a bit lads other than the two stupid errors which happen we held them back it was like there cup final for them and they where a great team. Every one of there players gave 100% so we must have done great which we did as when teams come at us we are dodgy so let's not forget they went at us for over 90mins. We gifted them two goal other than that we where cracking the defence earned there money last night. That team came at us we coped. All we are talking about is the bloopers it happens but let's not forget kyogos goal and that pass to him amazing. It was the goal that put us through We all new we had to score a goal over there which we did and we won great result and more confidence and practise for our defenders. Just heard signed scales and he is ready to go on the park.



21 Aug 2021 19:41:19
Has to be said, will not be popular but kyogo ain't the best out wide left.
Has to be through the middle for me.

Jungle john

1.) 21 Aug 2021 20:06:24
Totally agree. Eddie should be the left and kyogo up front in the middle. Ange knows this so let him do his thing.
I think we are accomodating Édouard.
But you what it does not matter as kyogo does so much work without the ball he's still as gd.

2.) 22 Aug 2021 02:12:45
If we are winning 6-0 plan B will do me. It’s got all fans young and old excited again, long may it continue.



24 Jul 2021 17:23:58
How many warnings do we need?
This can't go on without players coming in this week. Friendly or not the warnings signs are there that we need players before the season starts.

Jungle john

1.) 24 Jul 2021 17:41:35
I tried to go along with the idea of fast free flowing attacking football and the high press. Its all fecking pointless when you haven't got a defence and a goalkeeper! . Goalkeeper 2 Centre Halfs a LB and a RB needed asap.

2.) 24 Jul 2021 18:18:12
The signings will come lads, keep the faith hail hail.



19 Jul 2021 17:25:59
Has big ange thrown down the gauntlet to dom about the transfer policy.
To slow and the squad is miles away from what is required.
The big man is clearly frustrated.
Time to step up dom. its over to you.

Tim, there aren't to many posts on here that aren't supportive of the team. the complaints are all aimed at the board and the running of the club.
Are you trying to tell me you are happy the way the football department is being run. and more to the point haven't moaned about it.
As to the old days it was fan power that started the movement for change or god only knows were the club would be.
So you have never critised a player.
Pull your halo back up I think its slipping.
As for telling fans to were to go and who to support get a grip of yourself.

Celtics transfer policy will never change, no matter how disappointed the fans are with it.
A few seasons ago I was labelled a "panty wetter" when I complained about it. Seems a lot more reaching for the nappies now. lol
Years of miss management has left us floundering about trying to get a squad together.
Yes the trophies piled up, but we never looked ahead.
To coin a phrase, sleeping at the wheel comes to mind.

Ed people are allowed to hand there notice in and take up other jobs.
We will disagree on this this one.
They need to get it done.
This board have filled the squad with loan players, players running there contracts down and players in the last year of there contract.
They need to press the button on things and make them happen.
It's obvious there are working behind the senses but there are no excuses. lennons job was under threat from August. The new dof has been floated since at least BR.

Jungle john

{Ed007's Note - There's nothing to disagree over, football isn't like any other job when it comes to contracts etc Technically NL would have needed to give us a year's notice if he wanted to move on, we needed to give the LSE 6 months notice that Lawwell was leaving. Look how much we got from Leicester because Rodgers upped and left without any notice being given.
And what if the people are currently working their notice? Just because we don't know what's going on doesn't mean they aren't moving forward.}

14 Mar 2021 13:11:20
Yes but why no Dof. if that position was filled then at least the fans would see progression and an attempt to move the club forward.
Fair enough about a manager.
But this board have just shown how in the football department atleast, there decision making and timing on matters is questionable at best and incompetent at worst.

Jungle john

{Ed007's Note - Maybe new DOF is currently in a job, maybe the new DOF is already working with the Club behind the scenes and making plans? Again, just because things aren't in the public domain doesn't mean there's nothing happening.}
