My daughter met big Moussa in a hotel in Glasgow tonight while she was using the gym. Is this one of our new loan signings 😂😂😂.


1.) 21 Jan 2020 21:03:55
That must have been at about the same time he was scoring for Lyon tonight😂😂.

2.) 21 Jan 2020 21:05:35
Mental that, he’s playing for Lyon so doubt it.

3.) 21 Jan 2020 21:05:42
We miss the skelper.

4.) 21 Jan 2020 21:48:49
Let’s be honest bhoys Moussa was only a hun skelper cause rangers were absolute dire straights we could have buried them back then but look at them now under gerrard they have improved ten fold and they copy Liverpool’s tactics aswell hence why we struggled to cope with them. Lennon some how has to find a way to combat rangers now cause that’s two games they have dominated us and that is a worry when you think about it a team that only come together in 2012 are now playing like a team of champions maybe it’s the Steven Gerrard factor just like when we had the rat and snake Rodgers but I’m actually worried right now.

{Ed007's Note - I'd be be worried as well if I was you - probably more embarrassed than worried right enough. It's thread about Dembele and you want to talk pish about them?


5.) 21 Jan 2020 22:42:43
That's 3/ 3 posts for you now Barry regarding them.

6.) 22 Jan 2020 02:31:42
Haha so he was. I'll need to tell her but all the staff in the hotel thought it was him 😂.

7.) 22 Jan 2020 06:56:32
You Glenn's da, Barry?

8.) 22 Jan 2020 09:26:11
Only because rangers were in dire straits? Hhhhhmmmmm
So your totally disregarding the fact he done it at champions league level?
Disregarding that he done it for Fulham before sign for us and continues to do it in France?
Have a word with yourself.

9.) 21 Jan 2020 22:54:44
F#@#, ed it with post me thinks 😂😂.

10.) 22 Jan 2020 19:44:04
Ed think your comment was a we bit rude mate all I’m saying is Moussa was great for us got great fee aswell but I’m just worried that a team that was formed in 2012 have dominated us is that not a worry? Cause as a Celtic fan I’m greatly concerned specially when we have money in the bank but sign players we have never heard of if we lose this league there’s only one man to blame peter lawwell simple as that and this is my opinion.

{Ed007's Note - What has any of this got to do with what the thread was about and why bring TRIFC into it? If you want to wax lyrical about how good TRIFC are do it on their site or the page we have on here for talking about them.
Sorry if I hurt your feelings sweetheart x x x

Current bun in disguise and not a very good one at that.

12.) 23 Jan 2020 14:40:36
Just had a gander on the zombie page and this moon unit is all over it with rubbish like "Fellow bears" "Onwards to 55" and refers to Morelos as Alf, says it all really.



06 Jul 2019 15:38:39
What do you make of the statement from Tierneys agent. Only one bid in from Arsenal and he is not angling for a move. It will be up to the club if they want to sell him. Here we go 10 in a row 🏆.


1.) 06 Jul 2019 15:52:35
I’d take from that is the club want to cash in, I previously thought kt was angling for a move . When calmac was linked with a move away, we put a not for sale sign up straight away, we haven’t done that with kt. I think it’s great that we have academy players who are now main players for our side. While I’m pleased that we are strengthening the squad, I’d prefer it we didn’t push out kt to do it. There has been a few released / run out of contact that releases funds and there’s Ntcham who we could sell to compensate for the outlay. We probably still have cash reserves on top of the money we got for Rogers and his team, all seems a bit strange. I saw, like everyone here kt celebrating with Lennie at the end of last year so I don’t buy in they don’t like each other. All very strange.

2.) 06 Jul 2019 16:10:07
Just read that mate, I was just also thinking that perhaps the club are asking 30m or the likes. I mean the 25m figure at the moment I suppose is just speculation from the media isn't it?

3.) 06 Jul 2019 16:34:28
Though he said he isn't pushing for a move he did say he was open to one.
Seems to me that if there is a move then it will need to be right for club and player.

4.) 06 Jul 2019 17:09:27
Sounds to me like the club are looking to cash in whilst he is still on a long term contract meaning they can set the figure they want. If it is Arsenal, then they only have until the 8th August I think to sign him as Premier league clubs agreed last year to close their window before the first league games kick off meaning we will know soon and will have time to buy a replacement unlike when dembele left on the last day of the window last year.

5.) 06 Jul 2019 17:22:15
Reading between the lines, he’s not forcing a move but for his agent to feel the need to come out with a statement tells me the player wants to leave! If not he would have simply said the player wants to stay! The agent is letting clubs know they’ll play ball if the price is right but he’s putting it all on the club! I’ve stated recently that no money would get me away from Celtic going into a 9iar, especially to arsenal who will win hee haw over the next few years!

6.) 06 Jul 2019 17:37:30
Lh86, I’d disagree with you slightly there . He makes a point about how grounded tierney is and he’s not bothered about money . I’d take it from that he isn’t interested in chasing bigger money that he’s on.
I’ve been wrong loads of times though so that probably means he will be off next week 😂
If he does stay, I would like to see him get more protection this season from refs, he was targeted last season and the season before, some of the tackles on him were terrible . In fact I’d go as far to say I think the club should make more of it .

7.) 06 Jul 2019 17:37:54
Lh86. Snap mate.

8.) 06 Jul 2019 19:30:25
Having brought in a left back in the last few days; it looks ominously like we are caching-in on our biggest asset and it's a stark reminder of how the club is being run in the modern day.
Keeping our best players has long since gone and the days of the one -club players and testimonials are fading fast.
It's a sad sign of the times because of our relatively low ranking in Europe and financial restraints of our location and league status.
Building and keeping a young talented side is well-nigh impossible.

9.) 06 Jul 2019 20:25:40
I don't think anyone really knows what the situation is with KT and arsenal, I would take his agents comments with a pinch of salt he's only said there could be a move if the club's valuation is met which is realistically the same with every club in the world.
Every player has there price and KT is no different celtic are a business at the end of the day and if a concrete offer comes in which is deemed acceptable then it will come out that we've accepted a bid. These figures are nothing short of media speculation on what they think his value is, celtic could be demanding 30-35m for all we know which in this days transfer market is probably his value.
The bottom line is that KT hasn't once been quoted or said in public that he doesn't know where his future is or where he'll be playing next season so just because we sign a left back we shouldn't assume he's off even if it might seem probable.
The stories from the media are a pile of bullsh*t in my opinion, until I see celtic announce a bid has been accepted and he's agreed personal terms with another club then I'll believe it but until that happens what are we all honestly going with? Until that happens he's a celtic player and we hold all the cards.

10.) 06 Jul 2019 20:28:21
My opinion hasn't changed. Open to a move. Happy to stay. It will firstly depend on the club accepting an offer. After that it's up to KT personally.

11.) 06 Jul 2019 22:17:44
Isn't the fact that we have bought a left back in the last few days more to do with the fact that we don't want to be left in a position like the game at Ibrox at new year, when our best, most creative midfield player was moved into left back because of injury to KT, upsetting the whole rhythm of the team, having two quality left backs, means there is better cover, now just get the right back position sorted.

12.) 06 Jul 2019 23:48:11
I’m missing the point here I think, we have a saleable asset who clearly doesn’t want to be at Celtic ( Ntcham) . If the club want to bring in money just sell him.

13.) 07 Jul 2019 00:51:17
I'd sell KT before Ntcham. Both want the move but we need someone in there with Calmac. Brown can't play them all anymore .

14.) 07 Jul 2019 01:05:33
I think that both Ntcham and KT will go this window, possible with Rogic also.

15.) 07 Jul 2019 11:54:42
For some reason, the longer this Arsenal saga rumbles on I’m not sure KT will even leave. I could be wrong but my gut feeling isn’t anywhere near as bad as before and I think his agents statement has kind of reaffirmed what I initially thought. On the flip side, surely if we sell Ntcham then that’s us recouped most of our transfer outlay, add to the 11+ players who have left, it’s freed up a large chunk for wages.
If we can keep our best players and sell Ntcham who clearly wants away then I genuinely believe this will have been one of our better transfer windows for a long time! HH.

16.) 07 Jul 2019 17:31:04
KT has a cast iron contract. He only goes if he wants to go. End of.

17.) 08 Jul 2019 20:34:32
I’d sell KT for £20m he’s a great player domestically but isn’t brilliant at International level or in Europe, he’s not pot he’s just 7/ 10 at that level.
I think because he’s 1 of us we rate him higher than what he actually is, he has also been hampered with a variety of injuries over the past 3 seasons missing chunks of the season.
From purely a business decision I’d accept £20m as there’s no way he’s anywhere near the ability or as big a player in the big games as Dembele regardless of position.



12 Jun 2019 17:36:45
I've seen a few sites are mentioning the Toulouse CB and that he's already been shown round the club. His stats look impressive and would definitely be an upgrade on Boyata if true. Anybody heard anything?


1.) 12 Jun 2019 18:38:13
Seen that tae lawman
Looks a big bit of a bhoy.

2.) 12 Jun 2019 18:45:00
Be interesting to see if Henderson loan is involved as part of the deal.

3.) 12 Jun 2019 18:46:15
What stats are they? Not seen much about him other than he's apparently a mountain of a man.

4.) 12 Jun 2019 19:02:02
Would be a great signing. Looking for around 7-10 mill apparently.

5.) 12 Jun 2019 20:02:19
Wasn't big bobo balde a signing from Toulouse? If he is anything like big bobo then bring it on.

6.) 12 Jun 2019 20:16:06
BT86 he's played 108 times for Toulouse and scored 8 goals. Was in the French u20 world cup winning team playing with the likes of Pogba. And as the guys have mentioned he's a unit.

7.) 12 Jun 2019 20:29:11
Seen a video. Looks athletic like big Wilson and VVD.

8.) 12 Jun 2019 20:55:00
This is the type of defender that excites me! Hope we get him. bit sceltical but to be honest when I seen his price tag! But heard he’s visited Celtic park and Lennoxtown so u never know 👍🏼.

9.) 12 Jun 2019 21:24:24
Was watching some videos of him looks like he can also pick a pass from a distance. Nice and calm and can pass it from range up the feild to attacking players.

10.) 12 Jun 2019 22:04:26
Ye looked like he could ping a baw like big Varga UI.

11.) 12 Jun 2019 23:35:10
Did we not try and sign this lad before he went to Toulouse it may even have been in Lennon's last transfer window the first time round.

12.) 13 Jun 2019 12:27:51
Every window McCarthy’s name is trolled out. His agent really must be working overtime. Not a chance on his wages, nor should there be.



23 Dec 2018 11:18:18
Surely not the Defoe and Caroll rumours again. Can these people not make up new material 😡😡.


1.) 23 Dec 2018 12:01:18
Eh? has mikey Carrol won the lotto again?

2.) 23 Dec 2018 12:02:24
I said a few days ago I'd take Carroll. He's a big, route 1 type of striker which we don't have atm. I wouldn't be willing to pay too much of his wages right enough.

3.) 23 Dec 2018 13:11:18

Celtic don't play route 1 football. Brendan is actually trying to play football by keeping the ball and fast tempo passing.

Think route 1 football is finished in modern football.

4.) 23 Dec 2018 14:15:34
I didn't say we do, or should, play route 1 football. What I said is that he is the type of striker who can play route 1 - meaning big and physical - which we don't have right now. Since Dembele left we don't have anybody who can bully defenders and put themselves about.

5.) 23 Dec 2018 14:21:12
He's never off the treatment table and it would be a loan his wages are a prob also.

6.) 23 Dec 2018 15:02:29
Carroll is an injury prone dud. Defoe is well past it.

7.) 23 Dec 2018 15:31:40
Defoe would score goals but I'd prefer someone younger but big Andy is never fit.
Guys like him McCarthy and wilshere are as well retiring.

8.) 23 Dec 2018 15:40:12
I wouldn't touch either of them to be honest, as I've said before if we can make it happen I'd go for the lad Pavkov from Red Star Belgrade or maybe Origi on Loan from Liverpool.

9.) 23 Dec 2018 16:03:17
Uninspiring if true. Both would score goals if fit but would rather we invested a good chunk of the Dembele money buying someone who will make a profit down the line. Rather we loan one and buy one striker as the loan comes 2 an end we'll hopefully have Griffiths back. So spend the money on a target man and loan a poacher would be ideal.

10.) 24 Dec 2018 20:38:09
Wasn’t Carroll the first player that Brendan got rid of at Liverpool?!

{Ed007's Note - He wasn't the first but he wasn't far off it.}



10 Jul 2016 00:18:19
Bradley Dack from Gillingham is that someone who we are going for. Never really heard of him.


1.) 10 Jul 2016 10:35:47
No another no 10 got enough of them.

2.) 10 Jul 2016 11:51:45
I may be wrong, but can he not play on the wing as well?

3.) 10 Jul 2016 12:22:49
Doesn't matter where he plays this would be an awful signing.

4.) 10 Jul 2016 15:16:59
Fair enough Jim I know nothing about him at all, but a lot of folk have been waxing lyrical saying he's dynamite and is the next best thing since Deli Alli.

5.) 10 Jul 2016 17:34:00
Can't say I know a great deal either really bud apart from him popping up on the football league show and goals on sunday etc. He can't be better than what we've got. McGregor had a season just as good as his down in League One. We've all being banging on about quantity over quality, making signings that will take us to CL level and we're supposedly chasing players from Gillingham. I refuse to believe it.

You can only play what's in front of you is a quote that is often used in football. Well today it was St Johnstone and probably one of the worst sides you will see at CP this year.
Full credit to the team who remained composed throughout even when things were getting a bit tetchy (from St Johnstone) where apparently you are allowed to freely kick someone in the stomach whilst they are lying on the ground.
Shout out to Kyogo again who showed the determination and spirit that was severely lacking from the team last year. From being fouled near the half way line whilst supporting the attack to getting himself back up and having the desire to rejoin the attack where he eventually won the penalty. It's a credit to him and the whole team in general for their attitude.




16 Oct 2021 17:00:48
A well controlled away game win. A lot of positives to take away from that game one of the main ones was how good Bolingoli played. Made Motherwell look rather ordinary. Extra bonus when the top two take points off of each other. Happy weekend HH ?.


1.) 16 Oct 2021 17:10:09
Bolingoli is a liability I was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt but he's an idiot I'd much rather Montgomery and scales at LB going forward. The game was good still some silly risks took at the back though which we will be and have been punished for by better opposition.

2.) 16 Oct 2021 17:21:18
Thought it was a poor, disjointed team performance in the first half, thought too much play went up the right hand side, Jota was being starved of the ball, and Kyoto was relying on scraps, poor service.

3.) 16 Oct 2021 17:37:33
I don't think you could have faulted his game today although if VAR was in operation he would have given away a penalty. Chalk that decision up onto the officials mistakes even themselves out over the year side.

Playing out from the back looks really good when it works but we don't half put ourselves under pressure when it doesn't.

4.) 16 Oct 2021 17:56:56
It was much better in the second half.
Bolingoli confidence grew in the second half and that made a huge difference to the balance of the team.



03 Oct 2021 13:55:29
It will be interesting to hear the analysis of today's game on here. There are so many things that are going wrong with the team and general play to list them on this post. Positive that we got the 3 points but that's about it for me.
Just wish we had 10 more Kyogos in the team for the amount of energy skill and enthusiasm he brings to the game. Even when he's not fully fit he's head and shoulders better than anyone else in the team.


1.) 03 Oct 2021 14:12:31
I agree with everything that’s been said about us today average at best long long way to go doubt if it will be this season. out of curiosity I just checked the stats because of the amount of fouls madden awarded Aberdeen 27 anytime we looked at an opponent he awarded a foul I thought he was shocking today .

2.) 03 Oct 2021 15:39:59
The possibly most skillfully guy on the park got 6 7 fouls against him if that rb was 1 of my sons I would struggle to let him in my door HH.



26 Sep 2021 16:57:22
It's really hard to come on here and be positive and I know there are injuries but I can't see any improvement in the team structure/ system from last year.
We have wingers who can't cross or beat the defender. Midfielders who are just not good enough and the one forward we do have at the moment flatters to deceive.
Oh at least we didn't lose ?.




16 Aug 2021 22:00:15
You know that football is knackered when Barcelona announce that they are 1.15bn in dent and their wages account for 105% of their total income. I'm certain that they are not the only club living outside their means and it shows that the Financial Fairplay rules are not working.


{Ed002's Note - They are referring to income excluding transfers and during a pandemic - it is not a matter related to FFP.}

1.) 17 Aug 2021 08:54:11
With a bit of luck they go bang although don’t know if it would happen.

Any news on hickey if he’s playing or still open for a move back home?

2.) 17 Aug 2021 09:43:55
CampsieBhoyy, As a watcher of Serie A if Hickey is not getting a game for Bologna then there is no way he would get a game for us at the moment. They just got pumped out of the cup from a 2nd tier team. Keep an eye out for Sydney Van Hooijdonk for Bologna this year tho, Big Pierre van Hooijdonk's son looks like he will be a player in years to come. HH.

3.) 17 Aug 2021 09:44:07
I'm afraid it does relate to FFP rules and reports suggest that they will have to raise over 100m in player sales to comply with the rules. With PSG signing Messi it is suggested that they will fall foul of the rules as well.

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona's issues with FFP relate to wages. PSG do not have a problem with FFP. You had best stay clear of the finances.}

4.) 17 Aug 2021 11:02:40
No Home gate income, shop shirt sales and stadium tours, must have made at least a £200 million dent in their finances.

5.) 17 Aug 2021 12:47:01
Ed002 - That's what I said but also mentioned Barcelona being over a Billion in debt although apparently for some reason debt isn't brought into the FFP equation. All the reports are suggesting that PSG will fall foul of FFP unless you have information to suggest otherwise.

{Ed002's Note - Then whatever reports you are reading are wrong.}

Why should we blindly give backing to the club and in that I mean board when it's quite clear that for the past few seasons they have failed to strengthen the squad from a position of strength. It has got so bad that we have come to a point that the squad we have is so poor. So we have just to back them because they have signed for Celtic even if they are dross. Don't think so.

Desperation signing like all the others that will follow this window. The squad should have been in place well before now and if it had been decided not to give the Champions league a fair crack then it should have been in place well before the start of the league campaign. So disappointing but not surprising since we have been in a bit of a groundhog day for the past number of years.

Both Celtic and Glasgow City have fairly cosmopolitan teams and have players in the team from all over the world. Celtic also have a few Irish girls. I don't know much about the Rangers womans team but I imagine they just have more scots playing for them ??.
