Ed have you heard about the rumour we are intrested in some guy from Holland called uth or something I think this is shit tbh. But thought u would pass it on

{Ed007's Note - 23 years old Mark Uth joined Bundesliga side Hoffenheim from SC Heerenveen in Holland for 3million Euros yesterday.}

Ah ok! Cheers ed 👍🏼

Any idea why janko is down as a trialist

{Ed007's Note - Perhaps his registration isn't finalised, it's nothing to be concerned about.}

Genk reject Burnleys offer of £1.45m for Jelle Vossen! I cannot believe that with Ciftci and Vossen valued at roughly the same amount we are perusing Ciftci and not Vossen! Wake up Lawell

Believable2 Unbelievable1

04 Jul 2015 12:58:35
Totally agree ice man - total lack of ambition.

Agree1 Disagree1

04 Jul 2015 15:10:51
Ed do you think we will get another striker apart from ciftci

{Ed007's Note - Yep.}

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jul 2015 15:40:56
Watchn that game today shows we're still lacking big time up front! Aswell as being all over the place at the back! But we're severely lacking at the top end of the pitch! I think we'll really struggle to qualify for CL group stages if we don't invest up front! And I don't mean on ciftci! Are we still in for vossen ED or are burnley still favourites? Can't believe if genk want a couple of million for him we're still going for ciftci! Did we get a bid accepted by genk?

Another 2 young Celts away out on loan. Connor McManus and Michael Duffy to Alloa

Believable0 Unbelievable1

03 Jul 2015 22:56:22
Both these should be in our development squad and pushing for first team squad training and subs bench,not going out on loan, are they gone for the whole season?

Agree1 Disagree2

03 Jul 2015 23:28:56
Duffy is a 6 month loan.
McManus is a 1 year development loan meaning he can still play for the development squad

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jul 2015 21:53:36
Any rumours on Griffiths coming to Leeds. Would he be any good down here?

Believable0 Unbelievable2

03 Jul 2015 22:20:45
He would be too good, no offence but Leeds would be too many steps backwards for him.

This will be a big year for him at Celtic providing we get Champions League football. Can't see us signing a quality striker , so he will be needed

Agree2 Disagree0

03 Jul 2015 22:32:52
No offence but Griffiths isn't going to move to a smaller team in a lower league he is staying and playing champions league football this season.

Agree1 Disagree0

03 Jul 2015 23:02:41
I really hope Griffiths is not sold I am worried though we are in for ciftci if we get him is Griffiths out? Ed can you shed any light on this please? Always appreciated.

{Ed007's Note - I thought it was Stokes that Leeds were sniffing about. I've not heard of any interest in Griffiths, I think other clubs know they wouldn't get much encouragement from us if they had an eye on LG.}

Agree1 Disagree0

03 Jul 2015 23:31:39
I know we see players who all seem to play for the jersey but in my opinion none more so the broonie and griffiths who hopefully won't be off any time soon can see griffiths doing a job in Europe good movement and passion

Agree1 Disagree0

04 Jul 2015 16:04:14
Ok thanks for replies guys.
Not sure about smaller club and is the championship much less a league than scots prem.
no offence Rango but I think most championship teams would batter 80 percent of scots prem every week.

Thanks for sensible replies and good luck for Europe and league, always preferred Celtic to rangers lol.

Ps was it 60 odd thousand at eland rd for the Celtic game back in the day.?

Hi ED fell Celtic fans you might know already 2 million fee agreed for Mathews to Sunderland. So expect Jelle Vossen to sign this week. Also heard about some Nigerian kid Akinjide Idowu DF midfielder not sure how true that is

Believable2 Unbelievable4

03 Jul 2015 00:29:32
Can't see it mate! Think we've missed out on him! Hope I'm wrong but! Think 2 millions a great price for Matthews! Great servant but struggled the past year or so! Just hope we actually invest the money we get for him! Wish him all the best at Sunderland! 👍👍

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jul 2015 07:44:55
It's a good bit of business if it happens. £2M for Matthews and we've already replaced him with Janko who we only need to pay a compensation fee for. You guys are right, hopefully the Matthews money will go towards getting the striker we need.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jul 2015 08:24:34
If Janko is as good as Matthews then it is an ok deal but still think we are letting him go a bit cheap at £2 especially to an EPL team. no doubt there will be players of similar age and ability transferred for a lot higher fees down there. I know Coleman is better than Matthews but Everton are looking for about £30m. if MAtthews stays fit then Sunderland have got themselves a bargain. just like Crystal Palace did with Ledley

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jul 2015 08:50:57
Well the Ed called it again, obviously knowing the player wanted out - given the reports this morning.

With a year left and unwilling to sign, and with injury 'problems' I suppose £2m ain't that bad. let's just hope it is reinvested.

Personally miffed he's went to the mackems as I think they have got themselves a steal. He'll hold his own in the BPL no doubt. Had his best game in the hoops at left back - against Barca; and has never looked out of depth in Europe. Can keep up with and usher any attacker in Europe. Does very well when he's forward too. Epitomises a full-back but as somebody cleverly enlightened me on here, I was probably more fascinated with the player he could be than that he had always been for us. As yes, he probably has spent too much time out for his age.

But I'm pleased with the signing of Janko, and Fisher can cover for domestic duties. Perhaps we might see Lustig a bit more at RB now at the start before being moved to the middle - when VVD leaves lol.

If we tie up Vossen now it'll soften the loss of Matthews.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jul 2015 09:29:03
£1.5m according to the Daily Ranger.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jul 2015 10:46:12
Makes it a bit worse then Magic. Or is that just the Daily Ranger? Ball park figures, we're already looking to be in the black off transfer dealings this summer. Surely there'll be a few more decent signings made?

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jul 2015 11:16:23
Ed 2 players leaving today apparently, Matthews and one other I assume any idea who the other is. Cheers

{Ed007's Note - Hopefully Boerrigter. }

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jul 2015 12:01:09
Shame to lose Matthews: smashing player although Lustig for me is first choice right back. He's been dependable and fine going forward much of his time in the hoops.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jul 2015 18:14:06
There is no chance we will sign vossen. We have definitely missed the boat on this.

Doesn't mention a fee mate

Agree1 Disagree0

02 Jul 2015 21:05:44
1.5 million. Bye bye Matthews. When he was fit he was a good player for Celtic. Hope he does well at Sunderland if that is where he ends up.

Hi Ed apologies i'm probably starting to annoy you! Have you any update on the Vossen situation as I'm confused! As I understood it Vossen himself had been quoted as saying he would be interested in coming to Celtic mentioning Champions League etc! Then I thought we had submitted a bid that had been accepted. Now there's been no developments and the focus seems to be on Ciftci. Even the talk of him moving to Burnley his gone quiet! Have we actually held discussions with the player or his agent?

{Ed007's Note - Very few transfers are concluded in a couple of days, remember Vossen only returned to Genk on Monday after an extended summer break because he got married. We have agreed a fee with Genk and put an offer to the player, it's just a waiting game now mate, sorry.
Genk are playing a friendly in Holland tonight so it'll be interesting to see if Vossen is involved at all.}

Believable0 Unbelievable1

02 Jul 2015 14:16:23
Cheers ed this is the first player in a long time that I would be excited about us signing if indeed it does go through! Seen him a two years ago playing for Genk and he looked fantastic! Was totally shocked when I saw he had moved to Middlesbourgh on loan! Really hope we get this guy

{Ed007's Note - (yes)

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Jul 2015 09:13:53
Ed007 have we made a bid for Aiden mcgeady?

{Ed007's Note - No, McGeady's agent contacted CFC but there's been no bid made.}

Believable0 Unbelievable1

02 Jul 2015 11:57:32
Sounds promising. McGeady and his agent will know that silly money is not an option so if they have still contacted Celtic then they must be interested in making it happen

{Ed007's Note - Sounds promising... are you actually being serious? What would McGeady have to offer us now, have you seen him play recently? He's one of THE worst players in the EPL, his attitude still stinks and he'll want to be one of our highest paid players.
If McGeady is brought back it won't be a RD signing, Pedro needs to be very careful here, RD isn't going to sit back and let Pedro & John Park force players onto him like NL did.}

Agree0 Disagree4

02 Jul 2015 12:10:08
Where exactly would McGeady fit in to a Celtic team that already has the strongest midfield it has had in years.

He is no better than Forrest now and I wouldn't mind losing him either.

If money is not an option for him then maybe Aberdeen or Hibs will be interested.

Agree2 Disagree1

02 Jul 2015 12:31:07
Cheers again ed007!
I don't think he will bring anything better to the team!

{Ed007's Note - He's nowhere near the level he was at when he was here and even then I wasn't a fan, as a team we've moved on from his cut inside and ballooned shots in the hope something comes off.}

Agree1 Disagree1

02 Jul 2015 12:46:04
not sure where all the Anti McGeady stuff is coming from, I for one don't doubt his ability at all, he left us for £9m remember and moved to a much better league and as far as i'm aware Spartak Moscow were more than happy with him while there, granted he had a disappointing season last year but he did start well with Everton but the manager preferred to go with Miralles. funny how suddenly Forrest is a better player than McGeady even though he hasn't kicked a ball for 3 seasons

EddieK1888

{Ed007's Note - He left CFC 5 years ago now, is Kris Boyd the same player he was 5 years ago? At Spartak Moscow when his stinking attitude started to show he was disciplined, sent to train with the club's youth team, and then placed on the transfer list after ignoring team orders, he had numerous fall-outs with players and staff at Spartak and they were glad to see the back of him.
Why do you think Martinez preferred Miralles over McGeady after buying him? Just go and ask any Everton fan. Any game I seen him playing in he was awful, he looked overweight and lazy.
On one hand we've got Man Utd fans disappointed over their club selling one of their best young players in Janko to us and we have Everton fans offering to pay for McGeady's ticket out of Liverpool.
Forrest is no better or worse than McGeady, we don't need two of that!}

Agree1 Disagree0

02 Jul 2015 13:33:24
As an Ireland fan, who follows has followed McGeadys career a lot of the trouble he had in Russia was due to the fact he wouldn't sign a new contract. Moscow were p*ssed to say the least that they wouldn't get a return on there investment.

Source McGeady Everton Press Conference 18th Jan 2014.

McGeady was banished to Spartak's youth team as a result of him not re-signing with his contract due to expire this summer.

"Towards the end I was getting a bit frustrated but I never had any falling-out with the manager," McGeady said.

"In the end it was just a case of they were getting tired of me not re-signing so I ended up getting put in the youth team, which was a good experience."

I feel McGeady could help us in Champions league I think he is suited to AM role where Commons struggles in Champions League. He will know the wages he will be coming to and played and starred in an SPL which was a lot stronger than it currently is.

Rather than waste 2 or 3 million on the Tampons/Pukki/Balde why not spend 1 million on a player who knows the expectation, supports the club and knows what's required.

{Ed007's Note - I didn't believe it when he said it and I don't believe it now.}

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Jul 2015 13:54:15
Ed,

I actually believe it :)

Spartak's general director, Roman Askhabadze, admitted the club are willing to let McGeady, whose contract expires at the end of the season, leave for the right price in January.

"The club is willing to discuss a new contract for Aiden at any time," he told a Scottish national newspaper

Doesnt seem like something you would say about someone you want to get rid off.

{Ed007's Note - Well it's a different story than the one I heard coming out his own mouth at a family wedding but hey ho.
Do you really think we should be signing players because they know the expectations and supports the club? That seems more like an Ibrox strategy to me.
If RD has any say in this McGeady won't be a CFC player.}

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Jul 2015 13:54:19
Ronny could get the best out of him, I've no doubts about that. He'll get him sharper and fitter like he has done with the rest of the team. In terms of ability McGeady is far better than any of our wingers, you only have to look at his goal against Georgia to see that the ability is still there.

{Ed007's Note - That's a nice little fantasy you've got going there.}

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Jul 2015 14:28:54
Mcgeady is not better than mackay stephen and he's not even finished developing yet

Agree1 Disagree0

02 Jul 2015 14:59:37
there is no doubt that McGeady still has the ability, I went to Dublin for the republic match and myself and all the other scotland fans were delighted when he was ruled out of the game with Injury, LM67 is right to highlight his goal against Georgia and would Martin O'Neil still be picking him if he was fat and lazy,he is one of the very few real talents that have come through our youth system and been successful. the league is shaping up to be as boring next year as it has been for the last few. might be a bit more exciting with McGeady and GMS on the pitch.

EddieK1888

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Jul 2015 15:49:01
Just wanted to add my bit here , what we know is McGeady fell out with Boruc (big mistake) ;-) , he fell out with Strachan (for being accused of being LAZY) he fell out with NL for the same now that's a lot of fall outs!

Now am reading above he fell out in Russia and now @ Everton!

We have 6 or 7 good young players vying for 3 places

At 28 or 29 he has two good seasons in him at most as IMO your a spent force at 31 as a winger with a few exceptions

We don't need him IMO

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Jul 2015 18:56:38
Sounds promising?? 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

Agree1 Disagree0

02 Jul 2015 20:03:27
Surprised so many people think we are above McGeady. Our European exploits last season were hardly impressive. Someone with so much european and international experience would surely benefit us

Agree1 Disagree0

02 Jul 2015 20:33:29
Don't know why he is being conpared with Forrest? Forrest is injured 80% of the time so it doesn't make any difference if he is better or worse if he got signed he would start by default no doubt. Think that celtic could do worse but only if he got fit. He's a fat git. We have GMS but I don't know how good the cover is for him. Is McGeady better than stokes?

Agree1 Disagree0

02 Jul 2015 21:38:28
Fat / overweight- would the specialist dieticians accept this at an EPL club? No
Comparisons with Forrest - what is the point of that argument?
29 years old - so what if the transfer fee n wage is structured in Celtic favour. When did 29 become nowadays?
"Falling out" with colleagues - so what, happens in everyday working life. All of a sudden Boruc etc the Angels and players we should all look up to & hope our children aspire to be - reflect back on the actions of ex players
Subject to transfer fee & possibilty of shipping Stokes out door - would we be better off- personally speaking - yes
Overall squad enhancement? Yes, stokes, derk & other loanees wages removed. Positive
Reflecting on the massive lost finance on forward going players over last several seasons I do t understand the negativity surrounding this. Bearing in mind the player never forced a transfer when he moved & brought in significant £ fee

Agree1 Disagree1

02 Jul 2015 22:15:15
Well put Steve totally agree. I'm hoping he comes back,was one of my favourites before he left and I don't mind a player with a bit of attitude anyway,I've no worries about him fitting into any team system as he already proved in Russia he can adapt when required.

Agree1 Disagree1

02 Jul 2015 22:51:56
one of the most overated one trick ponies I've ever seen in my life.

Agree2 Disagree1

03 Jul 2015 00:35:23
Jjjtim, what was ure opinion when we secured the then highest transfer fee?
I'll ask the question again, moving certain players on and if the financials are to be believed is if not a positive move?
Should we keep derk who cost £2.8 plus ££££ wages with no return or look to bring another you tube signing with a vowel at end of name?
I'm appalled at negative vibes around this & struggling to see the argument. If we were talking 7 fig transfer fee n break bank wage then ok, not even got to that yet.
Maybe we should laud Cifti who can play left mid, upfront but comes with major baggage yeah?
Just a few problems over when he cld play n is that the player we want. Lot of posters on here who are ott with moral outlook when suits

Agree1 Disagree1

03 Jul 2015 02:52:16
nothing to do with moral outlooks and yes granted we received a huge fee for him. do you not think signing him would be a huge step backwards after securing mackay steven and armstrong who in my opinion are better prospects and far more versatile

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jul 2015 08:16:10
Personally I like a player who has a wee trick up his sleeve,don't see a problem having both GMS and McGeady on the park,a wee bit of flair that has been in short supply recently.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jul 2015 11:47:32
@ Stevo, yes w got a good fee for him and it was good business but that does not convince me that he was a good player. Over at Ibrokes, they got around the same for Hutton ad he is, was and always will be crap. Also, the last thing that we need just now is someone with an attitude to disrupt the dressing room. I personally liked to watch McGeady when h was on his game but cannot see him training the way RD wants or him seeing "teamwork" as being a priority.
I would rather bring in nobody than risk disrupting the dressing room
.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Jul 2015 22:37:54
Saidy Janko arrives, although a wee bit later then was expected.
Vossen not on our list according to certain folk? Wrong - again taken a bit longer than expected but he will give his decision in the next few days. Several clubs after him, and fee/money from EPL/Championship will dwarf our offer BUT champions league football may outweigh cash, a player who is hungry for football and not cash?

Believable0 Unbelievable3

01 Jul 2015 23:04:51
Football over cash? He'd be playing a better standard of opposition every week than we do, we're also not guaranteed CL group stages so I don't see where you're coming from with that one.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Jul 2015 23:35:12
@Jd88 we have missed the boat on vossen. So let's move on to other targets.

Agree1 Disagree1

02 Jul 2015 03:40:46
Checked in, and was over the moon initially from the tip! Cooled the flames of the 100k ship sail psyche creeping in,momentarily, didn't want that shabby beast cifti tbh (3am princess last call taxi lumber of a signing and I always had him down as one of Them without feasibly being so , unfair but warranted! ). Pray/hope/wish vossen comes now but its in the same ilk of a fat guy bringing presents to you for christmas. its your da and he isn't going to shell out for the best pair of boots but a pair that will do you, and you won't remember in a few years time.
Maybe i'm blind (enthusiastic) hopeful (delusional) half cut (and on the road to help) RD MUST have a wee sneaky signing lined up that the DR doesn't know about? Janko done, but ill repeat my old mans line of “dont sell mathews/lustig till we know janko can cut it”
Our best finishing first 10 of last season will be the guys that determine our fate. progression comfortable or stress free is down to our transfer movement after our first two "minnow" games

Agree0 Disagree1

01 Jul 2015 22:11:00
Particularly in the first half there was some very encouraging stuff from the young Celts.

Boyata's physical presence was there to see and Henderson again was very tidy and another good display from Tierney. Really think GMS will be a revelation even at CL level.

01 Jul 2015 09:40:23
Janko looks impressive but his signing indicates to me one of three things will happen - 1. We'll use him as a winger 2. Lustig moving into the middle or 3. Matthews is away. What do you reckon Ed?

{Ed007's Note - Matthews will be away.}

Believable3 Unbelievable1

01 Jul 2015 10:22:24
I know he's been injured a lot but Mathews when fit is one cracking RB! would be sad to see him go!

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Jul 2015 10:48:53
Has Saidy Janko actually signed for Celtic yet?

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Jul 2015 12:15:01
Matthews only has 1 year left on his deal and is too injury prone. If we could get 1 to 1.5 million for him that would be good business.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Jul 2015 10:30:00
I was kind of hopeing for Lustig moving into Middle and just have all round cover at the back ie - Matthews for RB/LB/wing, Janko - RB/wing, Lustig RB/CB. Have you anything set in stone Ed regardng Matthews or is that jut what you expect to happen (not that I'd argue either way! lol)

{Ed007's Note - I said a few weeks ago that I could see Lustig or Matthews moving on and if Lustig stays we might see him move into the middle, playing there is a lot easier on his hip and his fitness would be easier to manage playing there as the player has said himself. Remember we have Fisher as well although I don't think RD rates him too highly he will do as cover in the SPL and Ambrose can play as a RB as well.
QPR have registered there interest in Matthews but I wouldn't rule out a return to Cardiff.}

Agree2 Disagree0

01 Jul 2015 14:46:20
Lustig to me is a Quality player and I think you are spot on Ed007 he would fit in well in the middle

{Ed007's Note - I think Lustig's a great player and hopefully his injury problems behind and can get a run in the team. Lustig/Boyata sounds better to me than Boyata/Mulgrew or Ambrose/Boyata as a starting pairing.}

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Jul 2015 15:37:31
Think we've had a good few years out of Matthews! He's not been the same player this past year or so but! Big lustig is the better player for me.if we can keep him fit then he has to be our 1st choice RB,maybe janko will play right mid! wouldn't imagine he'll come straight into the team but.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Jul 2015 17:04:42
Would rather we got rid of the bombscare ambrose than Mathews but wouldn't mind ambrose as a back up DM at least he wouldn't be the last man in the line!

Apparently we have had 900k bid for Nadir Ciftci knocked back by Dundee Utd. I don't know if this is the sort of player we need. There is no doubt he can score goals but his temperament and the baggage he brings does not sit well with me.

I'm not sure either mate.

The players i'd like us to go for and who we do go for are two different things these days. Granted we've found some rough diamonds.

That said and only commenting on the player in our sights, I quite rate him. He's the striker in Scotland i'd prefer the most. If that counts for anything. He's the perfect 'type' to play that lone striker. Can run and shield the ball and really work a defense by himself. Got that bit muscle and poacher instinct in the box too. Plus I think the three behind him would really benefit from his game play.

Costing us by doing something stupid is a big worry, and whether he can make the step up to CL level remains to be seen. So those two factors just put a bit doubt in my mind.

There is no doubt Ciftci can play a bit , but his temperament and attitude are not what I want to see in a Celtic player , he would do well enough in domestic football , but I'm not so sure at European level , I'd much prefer us to persue the bid for Jelle Vossen , we are fast becoming Dundee Utd lol .

I'm not over the moon about this either! I was really hoping for us to sign someone better!

Thought we were only gone sign players that only make us better??

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jun 2015 15:12:58
No what big Pete meant was the cheap option and if he makes us better that's a bonus. I just wish we would go and sign a proven striker.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jun 2015 17:36:40
Would not like this boys from Dundee utd but mabye it's better the devil you know considering the shocking strikers we have bought in over the last few seasons, is there not a young striker in the development squad wee could bleed through behind griffiths

Agree1 Disagree0

30 Jun 2015 18:53:59
Guys give the guy a break, we have had the likes of Pukki/Balde etc and all the talk when we signed them was they look good. If Cifti was coming from Europe we would all be on youtube saying this guy got something about him. because he from Utd its this guy not good enough. Well LG has stepped up and so could Cifti. I also think Scepovic could step up this season also if given the chance.There has been many many old frim players down the years who struggled their 1st year.

Agree1 Disagree1

30 Jun 2015 20:24:30
Anyone else getting a sense of deja vu,the way some people are talking about Cifci is very similar to the way they were talking about Griffiths last year.

30 Jun 2015 20:40:44
I agree with you lawman
Looks like we are trying to go for the safe option but in RD I trust

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jun 2015 22:26:17
Hi Rayman, A usually agree with you more often than not but not this time Bud!

Cifti is up in three weeks for this biting charge and although a don't have a crystal ball he is going to get a 5 or a 6 game ban IMO A mean BITING FFS! a don't know about you but as was repulsed at the Suarez incident and we don't need the grief!

So disappointed in this even approach in so many fronts if am honest must have a better option than him surely even WITH how poor our record up front is :-(

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Jul 2015 00:20:44
@Jamie I not saying he anything special but we tend to go on about players because they from Europe. I know he Turkish but he getting it because he playing here. Mate the biting thing I have never seen simply because I had no interest in it. But surely he innocent to proven otherwise. Incidently I would take Suarez in a minute lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Jul 2015 14:56:40
Hi Rayman mate, He did it mate (bite) the Dundee's players Mrs was mad about it in the papers because he gave him a better "lovebite" (pmsl) than she ever could (y)

Heard a rumour McGeady will be possibly heading back to Celtic. Wouldn't mind but it'll stop emerging talent mackay-Steven or Armstrong getting a game plus he will be on big wages I'd rather we used money elsewhere cover at left back and Cb and striker Aka vossen

Believable0 Unbelievable4

29 Jun 2015 21:59:26
I've nothing against the lad but I really hope this doesn't happen. Fair play to him, he got us a mega transfer fee when he left but I personally wouldn't want him back. He may have played in stronger leagues but I don't think his career has progressed since he left.

Agree4 Disagree0

29 Jun 2015 23:09:19
If RD is serious about quality over quantity I would take McGeady back and punt Forrest and Stokes to make room for him

Agree3 Disagree2

30 Jun 2015 06:28:53
Totally agree cw , can't understand why some Celtic fans don't like him .

Agree1 Disagree1

30 Jun 2015 07:52:03
I know he plays a different wing and not everyone will agree but I rate Forrest higher than McGeady.

Agree1 Disagree2

30 Jun 2015 08:51:03
If wee James could keep himself fit then he'd be a great asset to Celtic , he did not too bad in the fitness stake near the end of last season , Aidan has lost his way a bit in the last couple of years , get rid of Boeriggter and have wee James and Aidan as the wide players .

Agree1 Disagree1

30 Jun 2015 11:35:20
Forrest has not progressed. He flatters to deceive. His final baw and finishing are abysmal IMO. I want him moved on but have my doubts anyone wants him. Never heard if any actual buds for him. As for mcgeadyi would take him, Forrest isn't on the same planet.

Agree1 Disagree1

29 Jun 2015 20:57:47
Any update on Saidy Janko Ed? Thought this was being done today. Cheers

{Ed007's Note - I don't know mate, he was due up today for further talks and a medical. Everybody expected an announcement today. He was up last week to meet RD and be shown around CP and Lennoxtown so I'd take a guess that if there's a hold up it's just finalising personal matters in Manchester.}

KRC Genk have released a statement stating that Vossen spoke with his club this morning, but is to consider a concrete offer from a foreign club. Seemingly that club is CFC.

Anybody heard a fee? Doesn't look like we'll be getting much in anyway but am just wondering.

I think his contract was terminated.

{Ed007's Note - 'Mutually' terminated = paid off and hunted.}

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2015 20:32:42
I just read saying McGeough is a possibility when he's just extended his contract? Any news on Fridjonsson Ed? And anyone in for Boerrigter?

{Ed007's Note - Fridjonsson will be going out on loan, probably back to Brondby, or permanently, nothing's been decided but he won't be here next season. I've not heard of any interest in Boerrigter, I think that unless he is freed he'll need to prove his fitness before anyone would consider signing him.}

Agree1 Disagree0

29 Jun 2015 00:37:54
2m wasted rather than paying a bit more for better quality! And that's the loss for just him we coulda bought somebody like a franchise signing with this all this wasted money! But it's constant cheapness and in the long run is bad business with our attempts to sign a striker!

Well I called the Dylan McGeouch situation miles wrong as it looks like the club have triggered the years extension in his contract. My bad, sorry lads.

Believable0 Unbelievable4

25 Jun 2015 17:10:09
I'd have thought the signing of GMS would have killed off any chance he had.

{Ed007's Note - And it should put the silly Scott Allan rumour to bed once and for all. With the players we already have, McGeouch resigning and young Aiden Nesbitt coming through where would Allan fit into our squad? I can't see McGeouch signing up if he wasn't going to be given a chance, obviously what he done at Hibs has convinced RD to give him that chance.}

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Jun 2015 18:46:06
We will put it down to the old age ed

{Ed007's Note - That's probably as good an excuse as any the way I've been feeling lately.}

Agree0 Disagree1

25 Jun 2015 20:00:35
I think Allan is a good player but would be nothing more than a squad player for us, for that reason I see no point in signing him. In addition, the Hibs games I watched last season, McGeouch was there best player.

{Ed007's Note - I've been trying to tell them on the Hibs site about Allan, one of them even reckons he's better than Johansen!}

Agree2 Disagree0

25 Jun 2015 20:12:59
ED007 do you think the other young lads Fisher, McGregor and Henderson are in Delia's plans also?

{Ed007's Note - I get the impression that RD doesn't fancy Fisher and a question mark is hanging over McGregor imo, he played well in the Euro qualifiers last season and now he can't even make the bench, that tells you how far we've came in a year. Henderson is due back next week from Rosenberg so we'll probably find out what's happening with him then but I'm sure he'll be part of the plans unless he is looking to move. I would be disappointed if Henderson left, I think he has a lot to offer and could play a big part domestically if we have a Euro campaign in our schedule.
I'd say we won't be looking to actively unload any of the three and unless there are bids coming in they will be given until January at least to prove themselves.}

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Jun 2015 20:37:21
I am the only one that thinks that Dylan getting the final year of his contract activated that he might now be used as bait in getting Allan? I really hope not he's good but where would he play? Armstrong will play more in the middle this season if needed and genders on as well. And he could lace starts boots and hasn't the potential as young liam

{Ed007's Note - Do you really think a player would sign a new deal so that his club could use him as part of another deal? For a start he would be miss out on money and if he didn't know the plan the club would - and rightly should - get torn apart for toying with a young man's career.}

Agree2 Disagree0

25 Jun 2015 21:12:15
I think the Allen story is just lazy journalism. There will be many others where TRFC are challenging CFC for players.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2015 22:55:59
He never signed a new deal celtic activated the 1 year extension

{Ed007's Note - It's not slavery mate, the player and his agent have an input. If CFC get rid of McGeouch in this window behind his back (a la Tony Watt) there would be repercussions. It doesn't give a good impression to young players you're trying to sign if you're seen to be treating them than no more than movable assets, it would also go against everything RD has said about nurturing young players.}

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jun 2015 16:48:53
I think Henderson needs a season on loan in the SPL! Let's us keep a close eye on him and regular first team football to develop even more we can't give him the games he needs

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jun 2015 19:41:54
I hear Henderson is injured ED, do u know the damage?

{Ed007's Note - He was taken off in Rosenborg's last game as a precaution after taking a knock. I don't think it's anything too serious.}

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jun 2015 23:33:17
Cheers Ed hope so I really rate this guy.

{Ed007's Note - Me too mate, if it was up to me he'd be a big part of our future, I think he could turn into a top player.}

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Jun 2015 10:44:12
Like all of you I also rate Henderson but think he may have to bide his time to get a place in the team.

Going on last season I would say that Deila thinks his best 5 in midfield are:

Brown Biton

GMS Johansen Armstrong

At the moment I don't think Henderson is better than any of these players but I do think he has the potential to become a first team player for us.

Celtic were on Wednesday night closing in on a deal for Manchester United teenager Saidy Janko.

The Switzerland Under 19 international is poised to become Ronny Deila's second capture of the transfer window following the arrival of Manchester City defender Derdryck Boyata.

Primarily a right back Janko can also play a right-sided attacking role.

Believable4 Unbelievable4

25 Jun 2015 10:19:20
I hope this is not true
A To short with Issy on the left we need a tall right back
B What is wrong with Fisher been given a good run
C If Mathews was a player we were considering moving on then why were we not chasing Simon O'Donnell from Thistle who was tall athletic now has good experience and knows Celtic, I know he did not make it the first time but he is 3 years older now.
Anyone who saw him last year could see he was one of the best right backs in the country

Agree2 Disagree4

25 Jun 2015 08:58:53
Pleasantly shocked that this is a permanent deal. Remember him being branded the next Alaba bla bla when Utd signed him. Caught him a few times in the Barclays U21 Premier and a couple other games and the boy does look a talent and a half. He's a machine. When it comes to picking up young players this is a very shrewd signing. Just surprised it's a permanent deal. Ed why are Utd so keen to sell? Is it LVG's system doesn't have a future spot for him?

{Ed007's Note - Utd aren't keen to sell they wanted him to sign a new deal.}

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2015 13:28:04
Ed is this janko guy any better than what we currently have.or is this one for the future.

{Ed007's Note - I've not seen enough of him but he's highly rated with Utd supporters.}

Agree0 Disagree1

25 Jun 2015 13:47:16
@Jonace, Maybe Izzy is getting replaced with someone taller. Also, Ronny wouldn't take a player on if he didn't think he had something to offer. Maybe he just rates him more highly than Fisher.

Aw Come on Ed a man of your intellect can't remember? Are you being selective here as we aw know Ayrshire is zombie infested lol

And with your's (and mine) favourite sport being muff diving too

Neither of us can blame it on the drink so it is much easier mate to be as a said selective (y)

But we ran a bus from Paisley to Bobby Jones nightclub doon there in the early 90s some memories

{Ed007's Note - I remember Bobby Jones and Club De Mer or De Mar, and wasn't there someplace called The Metro or something like that as well? There used to be a bus that ran to FUBAR in Stirling on a Saturday as well, that was a good night out up there.
I remember going through to Ayr to play golf at the Irvine Golf Club a couple of times and not having a clue where I was in the daylight and with a straight head.}

25 Jun 2015 19:14:57
All my yesterday's mate lol Club de Mar as well yeah there were a pub round about there to that had mirror walls a walked right into it first time thinking the pub was bigger than it was lol and with me being a right poser it went down like the Titanic!

Never been to a night out that far up (Stirling) although Hamilton Palace nearer your neck of the woods brings back good memories too as well as Hamilton racecourse believe it or not! Ended up with a tart out there that had spent time in Oz and had a chunk out her thigh as she had been bitten by a SHARK ffs!

As a said Ed all our yesterday's mate :-)

{Ed007's Note - I've got oot ma face up and down the UK lol Hamilton Palace was just a cattle market and probably still is. I can remember Park Lane and The Rococco although I must have been only 15 or 16 when I was going into them.}
