Toulouse looking at bayo on a permanent.


1.) 03 Aug 2020 17:28:34
good business gating him off the books full time no matter what the fee.



28 Jul 2020 14:46:59
Rumour ajeti might have pulled out of move?


1.) 28 Jul 2020 15:29:16
Where did you hear this rumour. It wasn't on the sevco page was it.

2.) 28 Jul 2020 15:59:33
Coming fae a west ham blogger supposedly.

3.) 28 Jul 2020 16:27:20
I hope it's not true Kev but until a player puts his name on the dotted line anything can happen.

4.) 28 Jul 2020 16:42:19
If his heart isn’t in then bugger him! We only want people who are fully committed at our club! No room for passengers! Guy looks a decent player but if true we move on quickly!

5.) 28 Jul 2020 18:44:10
Maybe he is being lined up as Morelos's replacement.

6.) 28 Jul 2020 19:36:29
Maybe celtic are going for toney instead.



27 Jul 2020 16:54:08
Starting to look like the greek boy is a done deal.


1.) 27 Jul 2020 18:05:37
the way lennon was talking it looks as if we could have at least a couple in this week but we have heard that before.

{Ed007's Note - Barkas and Ajeti should be both signed this week if everything goes to plan.}

2.) 27 Jul 2020 18:16:34
Looks like 2 good signings there ed. At this rate the celtic fans might run out of things to moan about. 😆.

{Ed007's Note - You reckon... 🤔

3.) 27 Jul 2020 18:22:06
Hats off to the board if we get those over the line both look first team quality. Is the Ajeti deal definitely a loan with option to buy?

{Ed007's Note - There's nothing definite yet, West Ham would still rather sell so a late bid could scupper our move.}

4.) 27 Jul 2020 18:51:37
Would be happy with barkas if he signed, nothing against Bain but I'm just not convinced by him to be our number 1.
If ajeti signs on loan then surely bayo will be away most likely on loan? Can't imagine us keeping 5 strikers at the club.
Hopefully revert back to the 3-5-2 that worked well for us and get another centre half in.

5.) 27 Jul 2020 20:36:52
Don't think we will revert as only way to fit Moi in is 4-2-3-1. don't see him as a wing back, he could play up with Eddy but then a new striker wouldn't be required. We may play 3-5-2 in certain games though. I expect moi to be player of the year this season.

6.) 27 Jul 2020 21:37:40
thats the boards job to get decent players over the line. its 3/ 5/ 2 all day long for me. we look stale and predictable otherwise.

7.) 27 Jul 2020 22:31:57
Be great to have the players to switch it up.

8.) 27 Jul 2020 23:15:51
I think there was an overreaction to the two rangers games last year (we won one of them) Until the game on 29th December we had dropped 5 points won the league cup and topped a very tricky Europa league group. We were very good after the break but I'm sure we would have won the games playing 4-2-3-1 just as easily. Forgetting about the options up top we r still short at CB for playing 3 at the back as well. It is good to have options though and we will be able to change during matches when necessary.

9.) 27 Jul 2020 23:26:15
What's wrong with 4 4 2?

10.) 28 Jul 2020 00:29:37
Ajeti looks like a good player, I know he didn't have the best of times at West Ham but Moi was the same at Southampton.
Hopefully they both find the form they had when they played together at Basel.

11.) 28 Jul 2020 01:10:10
Agree Liam, we started with 4-2-3-1 last season and were far too predictable it almost became embarrassing, I understand we will more than likely play it in Europe and it worked well for us but no celtic team should play with one up top in the league.
We were unbelievable after the new year with the 3-5-2 and with how big a season this is we will blow teams away with it, we shouldn't play a formation just to fit in one player.



26 Jul 2020 21:45:40
A lot of rumours the boy fae west ham will be in next week. You heard anything ed?


{Ed007's Note - I've not heard that, Kev. West Ham would like to sell Ajeti but we were pushing towards a loan to buy deal.}

1.) 26 Jul 2020 22:04:26
The rumour is loan with a 5.5 option at the end.

{Ed007's Note - I'd be surprised if West Ham would settle for that amount but that would be a good deal for us imo.}

2.) 26 Jul 2020 22:27:09
Moyes wants rid doesn't rate him at all seemingly
Also a lot if talk that The Wall is on a fight up tonight to sign.

3.) 27 Jul 2020 07:44:39
Twitter nonsense about foster.

4.) 27 Jul 2020 09:26:05
In all honesty at this Stage Forster might not be our best option. For instance he is 32 years old, kicking on a bit. I understand keepers can play into there 40s but what are the chances of him doing that?

Barkas May bring resale value and obviously he is very highly rated to be the Greek national goalkeeper.

5.) 27 Jul 2020 09:41:12
I would not sign big Foster now. If he wanted to come he would be here. Get Barkas in he wants to come here. As much as I like Foster if his heart isn't in it then we move on simple.

6.) 27 Jul 2020 09:47:59
I seen a bit about ajeti and it said loan to buy the price was 7.5 mill don't know how true it is or if the boy is any good as the only football I watch is celtic. Apart from Scotland and Ireland internationals but rarely.

7.) 27 Jul 2020 10:11:36
I'd rather go for the greek keeper now if truth be told. Forster has ****ed us around to much and the other boy could be our keeper for the next 10 years.
I heard fae a couple different places that Hammond also prefers the greek lad.

8.) 27 Jul 2020 15:13:31
The problem with Forster is if we sign him, will his head be turned if there is any EPL club interest in him between now and end of season? I honestly believe he would jump ship and we will be back to square 1.

If he really wanted to be back he would of signed by now. I think Greek GK is a better option.

9.) 27 Jul 2020 17:53:25
Get the greek boy in, forster is class but as someone else said his hearts not in it, he made that clear.

10.) 27 Jul 2020 20:13:46
Is this boy ajeti any good some people o know think it's a good deal for us. But I can't understand why we would have 5 strikers trying to get two places. Eddy will have 1 place so 4 strikers vying for 1 place is a bit much unless we are sending one or two out on loan.

{Ed007's Note - Ajeti was playing well for Basel but the move to West Ham was probably a step too far for him at the time.
Forget Bayo, Marco, if we are playing 2 up front we'll need 4 strikers to cover that. Obviously Edouard will be the first pick then it'll be up to who's on form and working well with Edouard, if you've only got 3 fighting for 2 places what happens if one of your strikers gets injured leaving us short in numbers?}



24 Jul 2020 08:34:55
According to geek news reports we've mentioned back in with a bid of 5 million for the keeper from AEK. They seem to think it will be accepted and that the contract will him is also done.


1.) 24 Jul 2020 09:04:03
Any idea how good this keeper is Kev? I know he’s played against us before but can’t mind what his performances were like.

2.) 24 Jul 2020 09:12:39
The daily ranger reporting that as well 5 mill euros.

3.) 24 Jul 2020 09:28:00
Garry only time I've seen him was against us and he looked good that night. Did read this though

Barkas kept 16 clean sheets in 33 games last season – conceding just 26 goals. He has 111 outings for AEK under his belt, with only 84 goals being scored and 61 clean sheets in total. '

4.) 24 Jul 2020 10:32:47
They are some stats and he did look good against us. Kept them in the tie.

5.) 24 Jul 2020 10:43:45
I personally think Scott Bain is the best keeper in scotland as it is, no need to splash out.

6.) 24 Jul 2020 11:09:01
Your right he is the best in Scotland but we want to keep building on our recent European form of reaching the next round and take the next step.

7.) 24 Jul 2020 11:20:14
He's not a no 1 imo and the first blunder and he'll be slaughtered along with the club for not buying and being tight.

8.) 24 Jul 2020 11:36:19
Alan McGregor is the best keeper in Scotland right now.

9.) 24 Jul 2020 11:50:08
Bain is a back up. Nothing more.

10.) 24 Jul 2020 12:22:44
It was all reported back when we played AEK how good there defence was and didn't concede a lot of goals no doubt barkas played a big part in that. he seemingly speaks good English communication with defence shouldn't be a problem.

11.) 24 Jul 2020 12:38:25
Bain is an adequate backup, if that.

12.) 24 Jul 2020 12:58:29
Allen McGregor is almost as over hyped as Joe hart.

13.) 24 Jul 2020 12:59:30
bain would walk in to any team in Scotland other than ours.

14.) 24 Jul 2020 15:26:17
Bain is of good standard for a second choice keeper. We are being stupid to suggest bain is a better keeper than Mcgregor tho, not even close.

15.) 24 Jul 2020 20:34:50
If we got that keeper from aek and Aberdeen accepting offer for cosgrave doing deal for him ferguson 2 for under 8 million deal in my eyes.

16.) 25 Jul 2020 06:49:57
Kev 83

Watched big bang theory last night. No mention of The Greek Goalie. Thought maybe one of those Geek's would be ITK 😂😂😂😂.

17.) 26 Jul 2020 00:45:05
Over ma head ninja, what's that meant to mean?

18.) 26 Jul 2020 07:22:36
Poor attempt of humour. Kev83 said he heard on Geek news 😱😱😱.

Was just looking at our bench from yesterday and realised it cost around 20 million to assemble.


1.) 03 Aug 2020 11:59:05
@Kev83 take it we never bought it from IKEA then this bench lol.

2.) 03 Aug 2020 12:31:26
At that price it should find a place in our new museum when it’s built.
I blame you Timalloy because you are a bad influence. 😂.

3.) 03 Aug 2020 13:54:27
🤣🤣🤣IKEA is the Benchmark for all Benches.

Soon celtic be on the phone to Aberdeen this morning offering bayo on loan?


1.) 30 Jul 2020 11:48:33
As long as it doesn't involve McKenna coming to us .

{Ed007's Note - Hasn't Bayo done his hamstring?}

2.) 30 Jul 2020 11:54:37
He has but think he's due back next week.

{Ed007's Note - Cheers, Stevie.}

3.) 30 Jul 2020 12:38:37
Big cosgrove has done himself a bad one. They need someone and we have one that needs game time. Get on the phone would be my advice.

4.) 30 Jul 2020 13:06:47
I would offer Bayo and other fringe players to Aberdeen to strenghten them for their push for second place. Bayo is supposedly due back training next week.

5.) 30 Jul 2020 13:29:34
Hope wee Johnny Hayes does them on Saturday.

6.) 30 Jul 2020 13:30:22
That opens the door for fletcher to Aberdeen.

7.) 30 Jul 2020 22:12:48
Fingers crossed ken.



29 Jul 2020 16:29:16
Ed what type of wage is eddy on?


{Ed007's Note - I don't know exactly, Kev but he'll be nowhere near the top bracket like Brown, it'll be somewhere in the £15k - £20k a week mark although when he signed a lot of people said it was "only" £12k a week.
The new offer supposedly doubled his pay so that would move him into the top earning bracket without breaking the strict wage structure.}

1.) 29 Jul 2020 17:24:54
I thought it was between 12-15.

2.) 29 Jul 2020 18:09:10
What is the top wage bracket for the players? £35k?

{Ed007's Note - Yes mate but there won't be many up near that.}

3.) 29 Jul 2020 18:46:43
Will broony be in that bracket ed.

{Ed007's Note - Yes mate. As captain it'll have been in Brown's contract that he would be on par with the highest paid player at the Club - which would have been Sinclair - but one of the posters (Kev83?) said he had heard or read that Brown had asked for that to be dropped from his last extension.}

4.) 29 Jul 2020 18:57:40
Any idea what Sevco's is? Will it be decimal?

{Ed007's Note - There'll be a few big earners over there. The likes of McGregor, Kent, Defoe and Morelos will all be on over £20k a week and maybe a couple of them will be nearer the £30k mark.}

5.) 29 Jul 2020 19:42:53
Cheers Ed.

{Ed007's Note - 👍

6.) 29 Jul 2020 20:13:21
Were rangers not paying half of Defoe's 120k?

{Ed007's Note - I never believed that, that would account for about 10% of their total annual wage bill.}

7.) 29 Jul 2020 20:21:42
What’s your take on the Toney situation or is there no chance we will go for him Ed007.

{Ed007's Note - Brentford, Nottingham Forest and RB Salzburg are all willing to pay more for Toney than we are.}

8.) 29 Jul 2020 22:17:33
Salzburg would be high up there I would think is that figure 12m they could afford that. definitely couldn’t see a going that far for him?

{Ed007's Note - There's no chance we can match the money on offer to his club or the player.}

9.) 30 Jul 2020 08:13:52
Ye Ed it was definitely dropped from his last extension.

10.) 29 Jul 2020 22:52:35
So Toney a pipe dream is he Evan that good never seen him I just hope we can do good business this window get what we need in.

{Ed007's Note - Reading between the lines, Rich it looks to me like Tonev might fancy the move up here but we aren't getting near the money Peterborough are looking for. If there are clubs out there bidding near the asking price why are both McAnthony and Fry publicly trying to goad Celtic into upping their offer?
The statements to the media coming out of Peterborough will not sit well with Lawwell though as that isn't the way he likes to do business and could see us leaving them to it.}

11.) 30 Jul 2020 16:54:57
Celtic seem to be in the market for a striker but with the price of Toney being too much and this boy fae West Ham no coming will we go in again for another or leave it to see what’s going to happen with what we have?



27 Jul 2020 21:42:18
So looks like griffiths is working his way back into the Good books but I am going to put this out there

I think this will be his last season at the club no matter how he performs.


1.) 27 Jul 2020 22:37:35
Agreed. Just finished watching The Last Dance on Netflix. Could be similarities for us. This season brings the 10 then a lot of key players could be on their way out to move to other things. Eddy, Griffiths, Mcgregor, Julien, Brown, Forrest.
Just a thought.

2.) 28 Jul 2020 00:09:06
Agree with you Kev at the end of the 10 season Griff with have a year left on his contract so I can see the board cashing in on him instead of losing him for free.

3.) 28 Jul 2020 11:19:21
If Griffiths bangs in 40 goals, which he could if him and Eddy pick up where they left off, he will be going nowhere. Up to him to stay focused and fit and let his football do the talking.

Liam what lennon actually said is "he is on a long list of players that I am sure a lot of clubs are looking at" not once did he say we were.
As of tomorrow we are going to have 5 strikers on board another will just make the squad top heavy and lead to unhappy players.

Its a dream of mine to see a 1st squad built entirely from our youth development one day.

Ed did you see what Dundee and alloa have done. A partnerships thing?

We should be doing that with teams as every level in scotland and maybe couple down south. Get everyone of the bhoys that are at a level to good for development squad but not good enough for 1st loaned out to play proper football.


{Ed007's Note - Definitely, Kev 👍

Big cosgrove has done himself a bad one. They need someone and we have one that needs game time. Get on the phone would be my advice.
