Keev83 - can we presume these are players that will be on a free contract come that end of June?


2.) 16 Jun 2024 18:01:21
Sure what makes you think that mate.

thought Kwon played well for most part, much better than this time last season.
I'd make sure kwon, Holm and Lawal were all set up with loans in SPFL this week. Let them get serious game time under their belts.

Id rather kwon tomoki and Holm fighting for a place on bench than spend 4/ 6 million on bernado just to do the same . next 3 games will show if anyone can jump ahead in the queue. hopefully kwon as he's a big imposing bhoy.


2.) 10 Jul 2024 23:20:24
Lawal is too good for a loan. He will be staying put.


3.) 11 Jul 2024 00:47:09
The way things are looking, Lawwal might be needed from the off. I forgot one am for this. These boys have to be brought in at some point.


4.) 11 Jul 2024 10:38:20
Thank god its not you running things in there DRB. Bernardo's coming to play but even if he is going to spend time on the bench it's far better having him there rather than any you just mentioned.
Your bench is there to help you change games, win games and cover for injury, not massively weaken the team when you make a sub.
Bernardo has already shown he can do that in some of our biggest games.


5.) 11 Jul 2024 10:40:09
Derry what's going to be best for his development, sitting oan our bench getting the occasional 10-15 minutes or playing 30 odd games, playing week in week out?


6.) 11 Jul 2024 18:18:21
Keev83 . Can I ask another question which is better for his development, training and playing every day of the week with players who are currently better than him, these players are at a skill and work level he has to surpass . Is he better in this environment coached and developed by one of the best in the UK who really wants him to improve. Or shipped out to a club whose manager may not be fuzzed about his development and only uses him when others are off form, injured or suspended.
Sometimes players improved when loaned out, but very often it is the beginning of the end of their professional footballl career . Of all the players we have loaned out since Sevco was in infancy, less than 10% were professional footballers 4 yrs after their loan.

How many games has a player coming out of your youth development got to play before he's considered a successful graduate of the system?
I'd say at least 50.

Keev83

1.) 10 Jul 2024 15:38:00
Think KT was the last one to manage that and Celtic should be very embarrassed about the lack of 'graduates' considering the facilities, resources and scouting network at the club's disposal.
We all know that players have got to hit the ground running at Celtic because of the demands and pressures to win games and trophies. However, something is very wrong when most of our potential stars are constantly poached away, while we develop projects from abroad.
The last few academy players that have been blooded into the first team squad have only made cameo appearances and faded away.
Unfortunately, I don't see things improving soon because our managers are under pressure to get results and our support lack patience because of a fear of failure due to long term dominance.


2.) 10 Jul 2024 17:27:37
It won’t improve soon because Scotland don’t have a reserve league.

Maybe the SPFL should be looking for a sponsor because most clubs couldn’t afford a reserve league.
It would look good for a company to sponsor a reserve league because it’s looking to help future stars.


3.) 10 Jul 2024 17:08:12
Celtic’s record iar promoting players from academy to first team players is unbelievably bad. However we are about equal to the industry average as the percentage of academy footballers that become Professional is about 1% . The UK and Europe are awash with football academies, and a young boy joining an academy is certainly no indication of a super obscene rich footballer in the making.


4.) 10 Jul 2024 18:32:03
No OAB Ralston has played over 101 games and Welsh 66 games.
Both can be looked apon as successes for the Academy imo.


5.) 10 Jul 2024 19:08:41
Think about the player Welsh could’ve been if he wasn’t hit with injuries every few months.
I really had hope for him and thought he would’ve been a stalwart but sadly never reached his heights.

Ralston is the best crosser of a ball in that Celtic team and would be an unbelievable player if he could improve on his game.


6.) 10 Jul 2024 19:24:14
Ben Dock could be seen as a success from our Academy, although Celtic won’t see the benefits and the same could be said about Billy Gilmour.
Patterson played only 30 games ( only 13 league ) for the Ibrox club and he was also a success, due to his transfer fee.

The players above are probably exceptions because I think 50 games is accurate.


7.) 11 Jul 2024 19:16:32
Buzz Bomb, I think it would be more accurate if you posted the alleged transfer fee for Patterson. I am sure that Patterson’s alleged transfer fee must have included the whole package, including wages and add -ons for Everton winning EPL, FA Cup and Champions League.

Dier and Tanganga just released by spurs. Both worth a look imo.

Keev83

1.) 05 Jun 2024 11:07:28
Dier can play Centre Back and defensive midfielder. ?
Wages could be a problem with loads of experienced players.


2.) 05 Jun 2024 11:42:25
Av read it was Sessengon and Tanganga, both are right age but not sure if b interested or not.


3.) 05 Jun 2024 11:57:07
Dier is staying at Bayern.


4.) 05 Jun 2024 13:54:21
If a player is coming in on a free then wages shouldn't be that much of a problem.
Offer them what we would have paid for a transfer, say £4-5m as a signing bonus broken down over the length of the contract and say £35k a week.
What others team will also guarantee CL football.


5.) 05 Jun 2024 14:40:10
There is no such thing as a free lunch .
There is no such thing as a player coming in free either .
The so called free transfer changes from a lump sum paid to club holding his registration before it expires to a lump sum demanded by agent for player who is not registered to any club . Depending on individual player there may not be a big difference in what a club would demand with less than a year left on contract and what the player who has no contract wants.


6.) 05 Jun 2024 16:32:29
Sessengon is a cracking player but he is never fit, never.
Wouldnt gamble on him at all.

Ye DC I read that after I posted.

1.) 25 May 2024 18:02:34
Great Job Edd and regular posters, now for the hard work Edd on transfers ☘️??.

People talking like it's the boards job to go out and find these players always baffles me.

Truth be told you can sign as many players as you want outside the transfer window. Just can't register them till it opens.

Lawal 100% needs another loan, his progress would stall sitting oan our bench. Get him out playing, another 40 games under his belt will do him the world of good.

We really need to stop this if he's a rangers man nonsense. It means
f-all. Time and time again it gets proven that players go where they get paid best and then where they have the best chance to play and win things.
