With the news filtering through that the Aussie has signed, now we are reporting that a bid for an Iranian forward has been rebuffed, but we are going back in for him .
Point 1 is where are we going to fit in al these forward thinking players
Point 2 is who are we selling to level the spending up a bit?


1.) 10 Jan 2022 14:48:13
I was thinking the same. Doesn't look good for us signing Jota permanently IMO.

2.) 10 Jan 2022 15:25:56
These players are costing nothing compared to the outlay for Jota and CCV -
If we move 3 or 4 players out, our net spend will be less than £10 Million.

3.) 10 Jan 2022 15:35:00
They're different players there's no huge outlay and we have been cursed all season with Injuries, better having too many as not enough.

4.) 10 Jan 2022 15:56:52
It's worth remembering the size of the squad rebuild that Ange faced in the summer and I'm delighted he's wasted no time in continuing this.

The J-League bhoys combined cost was less than 2.5M.

Barkas, Bolingoli, Soro, Ajeti will hopefully be moved on soon. Tunrbull is out for the foreseeable and for months we've been saying how poor the bench is.

I've also read that we were close to completing a deal for Jota - hopefully that goes through.

☘ ? ☘ ? ☘.

5.) 10 Jan 2022 16:12:20
I totally agree mally as we have been crippled with injuries, just not sure where they are all going to fit in. I don’t think we are signing these as we aren’t getting jota by the way, maybe ange is seeing a couple of the Japanese lads might need a bit of time to settle in and was potentially easing them in for next season.
Either way hopefully when qualifiers come around we won’t be searching around for players as most have been signed this season.

6.) 10 Jan 2022 15:45:55
Jota will sign. What player have we signed that can play Jota position.

7.) 10 Jan 2022 16:32:31
We don't really work on net spend we work on amortization. With everyone we have at the moment our annual amortization sits at £14.5m APPROX. If we get rid of Soro, Ajeti, Barkas and Boli. We reduce this by £3.4m per season. Interestingly with Jullien entering the final year of his contract we would reduce this by a further 1.5m if he resigns.

Given the historical accounts we seem happy with the amortization figure being between 13-15.5m per season. So if needed i think we still have a few quid we could spend.

8.) 10 Jan 2022 16:33:29
I should have mentioned the £14.5m figure incorporates Jota, CCV and McGree as permanent transfers.

9.) 10 Jan 2022 16:48:24
I honestly think they are planing life without Forrest and going to bin Mikey Johnstone nobody is safe no matter how long you've been at the club Ange clearly wants players that can step up and be called on right now Forrest and Johnstone are bringing nothing to the table right now in the way of injury prone or just under performing it's not got anything to do with not signing Jota on a permanent basis Ange wants his own lads in.

10.) 10 Jan 2022 17:25:02
I really hope we can and will get Jota and CCV on permanent contracts. And we do have something like 35 players now if that happens but there is a few that shouldn't be at the club and I hope we can shift them out in this window.

11.) 10 Jan 2022 18:24:04
I don’t really think we could bin Forrest AND Johnston. We need 4 homegrown and 4 association players in our 25 man Euro squad or we lose a place.

At moment we have

Welsh - if we don’t sell currently qualifies as B squad but won’t next year


Bain - who arguably time may be up

So we’re pretty thin on the homegrown players. And from the looks not sure if we have anyone ready to make the big step in the B team and don’t think there much association talent within our reach. I thought Hickey may have been a good answer but way out our price range now.

12.) 11 Jan 2022 00:17:01
Tbhoy - another reason to bring Ferguson in? Lad would add a bit of steel to the midfield.

13.) 11 Jan 2022 07:03:30
We fit some in 1st half and some in second half. allowing us to play fast pace for 90 mins

Nearly every game i've watched we've blasted teams for at least 30 mins in 1st half with not much goal penetration, exception hibs away. we seem to naturally take a dip in levels during game also.

If these players can do whst ange wants then we have a bench capable of coming on and frightening teams when 1st 11 is hitting the natural dip in energy levels. not to mention cover for the injuries our intensity of play can cause.

14.) 11 Jan 2022 13:40:01
I think McGree if he comes will add steel and pace to our midfield, we don't need Ferguson imo.



31 Aug 2021 23:32:33
Ali McCann has signed for Preston for just over a million pounds, strange we never went in for him for that sort of fee .


1.) 31 Aug 2021 23:53:07
Given the abuse NL got I doubt we will ever be attractive to high profile NI players.



12 Aug 2021 22:14:14
Sky are reporting we had couto from Man City up tonight as a guest . Young Brazillian right back.


1.) 12 Aug 2021 22:28:54
Loan deal, hope this isn't our ralston back up.

2.) 12 Aug 2021 22:39:13
Reports are suggesting that Couto could cost £2.5 million in a season loan fee.

3.) 12 Aug 2021 22:40:57
I’d like the Croatian player but app he was a success last season on loan for his Spanish club. Have to trust the managers choices I suppose.

4.) 13 Aug 2021 07:27:44
Had a look at couto he looks great on video but so does everyone 🤣 but he has bags of ability but can he defend, we need to trust ange if he's done his homework personally I'd like the croat.

5.) 13 Aug 2021 07:53:37
If Yan Couto loan fee is 2.5million why don't we just buy a RB. We should have another look at Israel for a rb.

6.) 13 Aug 2021 08:58:52
If that loan fee is true then for me wee add a million to that and go get the Croatian lad fae legia Warsaw. Spending £2.5 million on a loan RB makes absolutely no sense.

7.) 13 Aug 2021 09:08:54
Agree Garryc1977, I'd rather buy a Croatian International with his experience, than blow 2.5M on a loan deal for a 19yr old Brazilian 'wonderkid'

8.) 13 Aug 2021 10:05:17
really want the lad juranovic over couto. no point of taking another clubs player to develop him when he can have a ready made international player. 2.5 million quoted for him too. just get it done celtic.

9.) 13 Aug 2021 10:21:03
I agree about buying our own player as a loan just postpones the problem. In the meantime, Ralston has upped his game and although we need more quality additions, it gives us time to find the right permanent players for the right positions.

10.) 13 Aug 2021 12:09:33
I would have to say I couldn't imagine Ralston being a player to be honest The past 4 or 5 games has made me eat my words. What a difference from last year and in such a short time under Ange now we are looking for a back up for Ralston rather than a replacement but we definitely need a backup in this window for him.

11.) 13 Aug 2021 13:04:51
I think we're looking for better than Tony and that's no disrespect to the boy, whoever comes in they have to be better and ange has said that himself.

12.) 13 Aug 2021 13:14:33
Remember Ralston only signed a year extension so he is free to sign a pre contract in Jan maybe that has got him to get his finger out but I agree what a huge difference in the bhoy.

13.) 13 Aug 2021 13:34:05
Would rather we got in Juranovic as he fixes our problem rather than a loan with no buy option. Juranovic looked solid from what I seen of him at the Euros too.

14.) 13 Aug 2021 15:39:21
Don't feel convinced by this if I'm honest, might be a good young player but it's not what we need at the moment. We need defenders in with a decent level of experience who can handle expectation especially against better teams in Europe.
The thing that worries me with the targets that have been mentioned are that they all seem to be on the small stature side, this young boy, the creation and buta, none of them are above 5 ft 8.
This might week well in an attacking sense but I've always had the concept that defenders are there to defend first and attack second. Even starfelt is only 6ft 1 which isn't the biggest for a centre half and this Japanese boy we've been linked with is the same.
We all know how bad we were with set pieces last season but if we play against better teams and deal with crossed balls into the box it doesn't bode well if they're that small trying to defend them.

15.) 13 Aug 2021 18:34:57
Are we linked to any left backs to replace Taylor?
Ive said before and its all about opinions but we need stronger defensively and more of a threat in attack.

16.) 13 Aug 2021 19:08:23
Mally do your homework mate. Be more than happy with the young 🇧🇷 player- he is quality hence numerous clubs after him.



25 Jun 2021 06:55:44
Has anyone else heard any more info on the supposed bid for berg. It was rumoured last week a Scottish club had bid for him but since then it’s gone quiet, as all transfer stores have . There is still a rumour sevco was the ones that bid for him as well.


1.) 25 Jun 2021 10:44:23
They are always quicker in transfers, that was my worry when I read a club from here had bid. Our form in the time we take woukd make it more likely to be them. Just hoping Dom isn't like Lawell in that regard, or we will go into the euro games with the same squad. He did talk about modernising, I'm. hooing that includes getting real about transfers and the need to get the finger out. Abandoning Lawells cheap punt and hope they turn into Messi woukd be great too.



17 Jun 2021 20:56:35
Leeds reportedly sniffing around Leo hjelde, who was on loan at Ross county last season. By all accounts he has the potential to be a great player, hopefully ange has a chat with him and tells him he’s going to get a chance with us. Lately we have lost quite a few young players to big sides so they must see something in them. We need to stop this trend especially as we can’t really afford to buy top level young players.


1.) 17 Jun 2021 21:53:33
He'll be the next young player we lose going by the last year.

2.) 17 Jun 2021 22:24:07
We are in such a state these days; unable to attract a big-nam manager, hold on to our better players and many of our 'projects and prospects' looking elsewhere to further their careers. It has never been so apparently obvious that we need to repair and boost our reputation and traditions or things will get much worse.

3.) 19 Jun 2021 09:35:43
If young Leo is half as good as people say, we have to tell Leeds to bolt.

I’m not sure if it’s been mentioned already, but harts save to keep it at 0-0 proved to be a massive moment in the game. If we had let them go up on us it would have given them a massive lift and put severe pressure on us, especially with our record there. He’s been a massive signing for us, and as been stated previously a vitally important part of the players due to his experience . Bravo.


1.) 06 Mar 2022 21:39:16
Cracking keeper. Just a pity we went for Barkas instead if him the year before. Wouldn't have saved the season but guaranteed the gap wouldn't have been as large. A good keeper is worth multiple points on their own.

2.) 06 Mar 2022 21:50:20
That's a goalkeepers job, now if, instead of kicking the ball out, he had dribbled the whole length of the field before slotting in the opening goal, that would have been something to post about, don't go posting when he is only doing what he is supposed to do.

{Ed007's Note -


3.) 06 Mar 2022 22:39:02
You’re right Aindo, from now on if we win, please no one comment on it as that’s what the players are paid to do . ?.

4.) 06 Mar 2022 22:51:24
I think the bit about doing what he is supposed to do, I plagiarised from Eds comment on any time Graig Gordon made a great save .

{Ed007's Note - This site is fully searchable so go and find a post where I said anything of the sort - for a start Craig Gordon never made any great saves - and when you don't find one I'm finally blocking you for being a torn faced miserable and pathetic troll.}

5.) 06 Mar 2022 23:13:36
I think you are hung on your own petard, Ed, when you say Graig Gordon never made any great saves, before you block me, maybe have a poll on it, or are you like Putin , who apparently thinks all Ukrainians are pro Russian.

{Ed007's Note - You're a horrible scumbag even to think along those lines with what's going in the world. I was just going to delete it but I thought I would show you up for what you are and it's time for you to leave this site.}

It was the strength in his wrist movement to get the ball out the park. Livi boy at the back post.
Livi goalie at our first. Similar save less on ball. Madeda doing what striker's do tap it in.

Top of the league
Looking down on the Rangers.

Chill lads.
We are all connected.

8.) 07 Mar 2022 13:50:07
aindoh - there is only one keeper on the planet that has those skills I think. I believe he has scored over 40 goals in his career.

I give you Rene-El Loco-Higuita.

Some boy likes!

Used to love watching chilavert (think that's what he was called anyway! ) .



01 Mar 2022 07:14:36
Is there any news regarding Ben doaks contract. The lad is highly thought of and he was involved in the squad a few games back. Now he doesn’t seem to be. I read Liverpool we’re after him, would it be possible he’s not signed so ange had dropped him back out of the squad or is it just a case that we have had a few players back so no room for him?


1.) 01 Mar 2022 09:22:45
It's not looking good he got a taste but he still hasn't signed, he could get lost in the traffic down there.

2.) 01 Mar 2022 09:59:54
Striker is a position we have struggled with all season with injury and with JF and MJ unable to hold down a place, I'm surprised he hasn't been on the periphery and pushing for a place.
Maybe it does look like his mind is on other things?

3.) 01 Mar 2022 10:00:44
I wouldn't play any players whose going to be out off contract, I wouldn't hold it against a player if they want to try new things or wanting more money but the manager needs commited players running threw brick walls for the club, players looking to leave for free will they be fully commited making challenges, I don't think so, there thinking if I get a bad injury, what's there next career move, maybe am wrong but just want commited players playing for the club, the manager and the fans.

4.) 01 Mar 2022 14:49:00
Ben Doak is away already I believe. His parents and representatives have been down south the last couple of weeks. Liverpool or Manchester City are mostly likely destination. Ange thought he could give him some game and a proper path to the first team. I think it will be another year or two before or younger players believe they have a path way to the first team because of damage Brendan Rogers and Neil Lennon did did. Given them no opportunity or attention. Ange will change this but I think it's not a quick fix.

5.) 01 Mar 2022 15:24:00
Cork Paul,
Okay Brendan Rogers left Celtic under a cloud. But honestly what damage did he cause?
He won a DOUBLE TREBLE and we were beating the other mob for fun during his reign as manager.
So, if that is causing damage, you must be a very hard person to please.
Lennon did a lot more damage than Rogers did!

Hail Hail

6.) 01 Mar 2022 20:36:16
Seems his head has been turned which I thought was the case, however it seems weird to me . When he made his debut, he posted it was a dream come true . Then a few weeks later he looks like he’s for the off. Let’s be honest he does look good but I can’t see him shifting Diaz mane salah or jota at liverpoool . He could however possibly replace James Forrest at some point .

7.) 01 Mar 2022 20:38:04
It's no secret that Brendan Roger's had no time for the academy player's. Roger's looked at the cheque book instead of looking at our Youngster.



20 Feb 2022 18:49:54
This may have already been mentioned but would anyone like us to hire a set piece specialist . We have mentioned on here loads of times about the amount of corners free kicks we get, and score from a tiny percent of them. We also struggle defending them.
There are a few teams in the epl who have personnel specifically for this role. Surely we should be looking into it, this has been a problem for seasons now.


1.) 20 Feb 2022 20:00:50
This problem has been around for a few seasons and it's not only defending set pieces where we have trouble, but we very rarely score from corners or set pieces at the other end and that's important too.
We have more or less a completely different team this term; whereas, Kennedy and Co got a hard time last season, for the very same faults; but as long as we are winning there is not so much of a spotlight on these deficiencies.
I'm sure Ange must see that if we addressed and improved these weaknesses it would go a long way to reaching the levels he wants.

2.) 20 Feb 2022 20:11:30
Who's the attacking specialist because we're scoring more, could our defenders who have the least amount of goals conceded in the league had an off day.

3.) 20 Feb 2022 22:35:24
I get you’re point mally but about 90% of our goals conceded have been from set pieces. I’m not including Europe just the league. If we could tighten that up it would make us a lot better. Nor do we have a threat in the opposition box.

4.) 21 Feb 2022 01:02:06
Quincy sons have been saying it for seasons now the goaLkeepes are told to stay o the line (who takes the blame? ) HH.



29 Jan 2022 18:00:56
Question for buzz, do you know how many corners we have had and how many we have scored from this season?
I heard the stat the other night that of the 12 goals or so we have conceded 10 were from corners and crosses.
Free kicks and corners are such an important part of the game now, we tend to have at least 12 corners a game and very little to show from them.


1.) 29 Jan 2022 19:32:45
Quinn am like a broken record with this it’s well into double figures every game don’t even look like scoring but panic stations every time the team your playing get one. to me it would be one of the final pieces of the jigsaw if we sorted it.



29 Jan 2022 16:41:53
This is poor, haven’t attacked a cross or corner all day the Sevconians slip up and leave the door open for us, and so far we don’t have the bottle to step through it . giakoumis should have at least had two Very frustrating.

Not for me unfortunately, I wasn’t a massive fan of the original version, and this is as bad. Think it looks weird all black on the back then the stripes on the front . It may look better in the flesh but disappointed with this top, may have to stick with the hoops this season.

Seems like a strange move to me, he’s getting nowhere near their squad especially a starting spot. If he goes up top he has Diaz mane salah firminho and jota ahead of him.
If he’s looking at full back he has Robertson and Alexander ahead of him. He would seem to have had much better opportunities ahead of him with us, then in his early twenties move onto something different .

I can’t wait for the new season to start, on previous seasons anges teams perform a lot better statistically in his second season. All his signings apart from guchi, made a real impact . However we can’t get complacent, and right now I’d take another successful domestic season, and not to get hammered in the champions league. We are stepping up a massive level, from one where we struggled in the Europa and conference standard . To suddenly expect us to be competing could be a stretch. As long as we make strides and I’m sure we will under Ange, I’d take that. Our open expansive football while it brings great entertainment and excitement domestically, it can leave us open against a much higher calibre of teams. In saying all that, I’d love us to draw Madrid as that will be some away trip.

I agree to an extent, Rogers tried the same and we got some hammerings in Europe under him . We struggled in the europa and conference games at times, we are obviously stepping up at least a level again. If we go toe to toe with the Highest level footballers we will get a few beatings, and it doesn’t become enjoyable getting beat 6-7 1.

I wouldn’t be too certain he loves Celtic, after his first season im sure I read he was using us a stepping stone to the prem. I get that as that’s where we are as a club but I’m not having he loves us . Now his injuries have occurred and people have stopped really looking at him he loves us again.
Decent player, and I thought his style would have suited anges game plan but obviously he doesn’t fancy him.

I was there as well, waited an hour and the players bombed past. Said to my daughter I was missing out on some beers .
Worth the trip up though to watch performances like we are seeing this season under Ange.
Just seem to be getting better all the time.
Some of the best football I’ve seen is play.

They will be there this Saturday I’ve stayed there quite a few times and when I check in, they are generally leaving. Think the hotel don’t like people approaching them in the hotel but he should get a few autographs on the way to their bus .
