I used to play with One of the coaching staff at Celtic youths and I was chatting to him on sat night on the phone and he says don't get to excited about signings, there won't be any big or even medium sized signings this year. BR is to give most of this team s chance as the higherarchy felt the tactics used did not utilise the players potential already there. If BR takes up the option next season that's when you will see the signings, budget for this year is apparently 5m total. Plus any funds raised from sales or from the likes of wanyama money. Doesn't look too good from this info already.

I don't think BR wouldve took the job unless there was funds, can't see it being as low as that, i hope yer pal was on the wind up.

tell wee sally a wiz askin.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jun 2016 19:38:40
I'm not saying you didn't have a conversation, at all. But the thought of the "hierarchy" doing that, because they're the person employed to think about tactics. Stinks. I could be getting taken down the path, because every manager seems to say it, but I really can't see us sanctioning BR without some sort of guarantee that he can 'push the boat out' a bit.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 14:08:11
Reading on some sites that we are interested in Shane Duffy. Decent player imo.

Believable2 Unbelievable5

25 Jun 2016 14:16:08
Would love this guy no world class but good player.

Agree0 Disagree3

25 Jun 2016 14:45:11
Better than what we have, not sure it's not just a link because he's Irish and no one has a clue who we're after though, easy link to make while it's so quiet, would be happy if it's true and we got him.

Agree1 Disagree1

25 Jun 2016 14:56:17
Was just about to post this rumour aswell . would be a good signing.

Agree1 Disagree3

25 Jun 2016 19:14:25
Rumour originated on CQN, probably nothing to it.

25 Jun 2016 19:59:48
You probably right mt probably just the celtic Irish link.

26 Jun 2016 15:38:43
No thanks just seen his display today. Not a good reader of the game eh?

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 12:54:15
Hearing BR has offered James Forrest a new contract ED! Tell me this is a joke eh! I honestly thought we'd seen the last of him! 😡😡.

{Ed007's Note - I've been out all morning but it looks like Rodgers doesn't share our sense of humour and it's not a joke.}

Believable4 Unbelievable3

25 Jun 2016 13:57:52
Great wee player.

Agree1 Disagree10

25 Jun 2016 14:04:27
One of the most ineffective players at our club

Agree4 Disagree1

25 Jun 2016 14:22:00
Still only 24 worth keeping imo.

Agree2 Disagree8

25 Jun 2016 14:31:23
Worth keeping! Away and gies peace! Just another piece of deadwood that should be let go ASAP! Cannot believe BR fancies this guy as a player ED! Must say that it's slightly worrying for me if that's what the manager thinks deserves a new deal!

{Ed007's Note - How dare you question anything Brendan Rodgers does!}

Agree4 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 14:42:50
Waste of space for the last few years, disappointed if this is true, pay as you play with incentives for good performances would be my offer.

Agree0 Disagree1

25 Jun 2016 14:56:42
Is that sarcasm I detect ED? lol. just find it a very strange one mate! He's went down hill rapidly the last couple of seasons and I thought it was a done deal for him to leave! We're right to get rid of the mediocre players not sign them up on a new deal! And for me Forrest is mediocre at best!

{Ed007's Note - Resigning Forrest and Mulgrew isn't taking the team forward.}

Agree3 Disagree1

25 Jun 2016 15:16:12
Fresh start for all under br.

Agree1 Disagree2

25 Jun 2016 15:22:24
Absolutely agree! The early signs a bit worrying.

Agree1 Disagree1

25 Jun 2016 15:19:37
Agree with Forrest ED but I think big mulgrew is a good squad player! And I think u need players who know what the clubs all about in and around the place! Wouldn't bother me to much if he stayed! But your forrests And ambrose have got to be shown the door! Anything in this Shane Duffy thing ED? Not seen much of the big guy but he looks like the sort of no nonsense player we maybe need! What u think buddy?

{Ed007's Note - Mulgrew is no better than Ambrose so why give one a new contract when you've got one under contract already? I've no idea where the Shane Duffy story came from but unless Rodgers has continued to to tap up players from his Liverpool days I can't see him unsettling a player at a major tournament.}

Agree0 Disagree1

25 Jun 2016 15:26:55
your spot on ed they are two pieces of deadwood who should be shipped out. Wee Patrick Roberts has done more for Celtic in his short six month spell than Forrest has done in all his time here.

{Ed007's Note - Forrest isn't good enough to be called deadwood.}

Agree2 Disagree1

25 Jun 2016 15:33:03
Maybe BR thinks he can get something better out of them as players, it was obvious that Ronnie didn't have a clue about man management, and maybe BR thinks if thy're handled the right way, they can be beneficial to the team he is trying to mould together, but if it was up to me I would let them go and try and bring thru some of the younger players, who are never going to get a chance, if we keep hanging on to the players who have had their chance to shine.

Agree2 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 17:09:43
Or maybe he has no transfer money.

{Ed007's Note - You stop stirring things! (giggle)

Agree3 Disagree1

25 Jun 2016 17:53:12
So now we are keeping players because they are only 24??

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 17:58:57
Br judgment will do for me I'll let him decide what's dead wood and what's not.

Agree1 Disagree2

25 Jun 2016 18:02:26
Got to disagree ED! There's no way in hell mulgrew is on the same level as ambrose! Forrest on the other hand is a different story! Just hope DRB isn't on to something when he suggests there isn't this big transfer budget some were expecting when BR came in! Not panicking just yet of course lol. still plenty of time to go yet! But just a few wee signs to worry about!

{Ed007's Note - Don't worry about the money and I'm sure we'll sign a couple of players that will excite the fans.}

Agree0 Disagree1

25 Jun 2016 19:11:46
ED007 had a pint today with a couple of my Tim pals, one who seems to hear titbits from insid the club. He told me that Rodgers was willing to sign Sinclair but not at any cost, he has had a look at Forrest and had a chat and seems to be willing to give him another go, on the proviso his attitude is more positive. Maybe not what a lot of fans want to hear, but on the plus side, Rodgers is not going to pay inflated prices for English based players if he thinks players already on the books can improve the team.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 18:55:25
Hope your right buddy 👍🏻👍🏻.

{Ed007's Note - And then we can all put on our big :=D

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 22:22:57
I've still got my :) since br took over all abort the Brendan bus let's back our team whether it be efe Forrest Allan Christie commons griff or new bhoys c'mon lads be bhoys not ghirls come together hail hail.

Aboard auto correct is a bitch.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jun 2016 00:06:41
I can't belive it. We must of upped the offer that he turned down as well! Anyone that has watched him play can tell he just doesn't have it. He drives me nuts every time he he's on. The only way this would make any kind of sense is if we were confident we could sell him in a years time.
That idea doesn't even make sense as a years wages at say 12k would leave us at a loss as I could only see a club down south offering 500k max for him. If any club even wanted him!
It is a complete farce if true. Any game time he is given will take mins off of guys like nesbit.

Agree1 Disagree1

26 Jun 2016 00:16:03
Question for you ed. Does Forrest have a few fan boys on the board? For the life of me I can't understand why he has been here so long and ex mangers/ pundits have praised him and with my own eyes I've personally seen nothing to merit it. Fair enough at the beginning he had potential and imo was riding on mcgeady's coat tails as we were convinced our academy was going to be churning out top players year on year. How that positivity has lasted so long with him baffles me.

{Ed007's Note - I've no idea mate, I can't understand it myself. Once Forrest hit 21 I knew he was never going to make it af Celtic and his attitude's always been a bit suspect to. And then there's his injury record. I think the comparison to McGeady is pretty accurate as neither of them will ever fulfill their potential. I'm thinking Forrest has not had the kind of offers he was expecting and needs to take the supposed reduced terms we offered him.}

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Jun 2016 02:42:47
Hoops next post will have talk of commons signing a new 2yr deal and Griffiths being loaned to Swansea.

{Ed007's Note - See now you mention it, if Mulgrew has been offered a 3 year deal what happened to the policy of only offering 30+ players a year deal that was the problem? Wee Lisa's campaign worked better than the Remain one by the looks of it. All joking aside I think it's a good policy to have, a lot of the English sides use it from what I've seen.}

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jun 2016 05:37:50
Forrest is utter utter utter gash!

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Jun 2016 09:11:39
I'm still holding out hope that the reason we're all quiet on the transfer front is due to looking at a higher calibre of player i. e. Players at euros. Said before i think we'll go with what we've got for 1st qualifying round.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jun 2016 09:32:12
I think Brendan has told James forrest to prove he's worth a new deal.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jun 2016 14:12:12
What if Forrest gets a run of games and comes good, am not his biggest fan either but remember MON with Petta?

Ed, do you know if Commons will be given another chance and if so do what position would you play him?

{Ed007's Note - Just like under RD I don't see where Commons would fit in any Celtic team unless Rodgers is going to do what Lennon done and change his team and tactics to accommodate him.}

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jun 2016 13:21:26
Moussa Dembele? The 19 year old French striker.

Believable2 Unbelievable4

24 Jun 2016 13:36:23
Isnt there a lot of interest from a number of clubs for him.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jun 2016 15:29:58
Think half the prem and dortmund are after him. Would say plenty of interest from elsewhere also.

Agree0 Disagree2

24 Jun 2016 15:59:43
Did Pedro find a spare £20M down the back of he couch?

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jun 2016 16:35:55
He is out of contract.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jun 2016 17:40:09
Would be good but can't see it.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 Jun 2016 20:30:21
Now this would be a massive signing.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 Jun 2016 22:26:06
Would be a huge signing a lot bigger than when we pulled off the Ledley signing! But he will get offered too much money in the PL it would be exciting to see that sort of ambition the boy has huge potential!

Agree1 Disagree1

25 Jun 2016 07:28:19
He signed for dortmund weeks ago.

Agree0 Disagree3

25 Jun 2016 08:14:44
If that's the case then you better call big Brendan and tell him to stop wasting his time because he is actively pursuing him.

Agree2 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 09:34:28
Ousmane Dembele signed for Dortmund.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 10:32:18
Ousmane Dembele is not who we are apparently chasing mate, it's Moussa Dembele, the Fulham striker. And before you say he plays for Tottenham, there are two with the same name.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 09:29:30
Any truth in this Ed? Certainly more exciting name to be linked to compared to the others floating about this summer.

{Ed007's Note - There's definitely interset from us in Dembele and you're right about it being an improvement in standards but I think we could be priced out of any move for the lad. I'd be happy with Dembele over any other striker we've been linked with in recent weeks.}

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 12:34:19
That was my mistake too, I was thinking of Ousmane Dembele who just moved for about £25M. Too many of them. Almost as bad as Camara's lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 13:14:42
That's a good sign then Ed, even if we miss out on him at least it shows we are after quality players. Hopefully he'll see that we can give him first team and european football which is a better option than sitting on Liverpool or Spurs bench.

{Ed007's Note - It's a big step up from who we've been linked to so far and that's got to be a good thing.}

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 19:22:09
This is a bit more like it! Noticed he was coming up to a bosman a wee while ago but automatically ruled him out. So i'm delighted to hear we're going to at least have a go. What's the crack with interest from your Liverpools, Spurs and Arsenals though Ed (s) ?

{Ed007's Note - It's hard to gauge the interest of other teams because everybody and their dog have watched him. Ed001 says that Liverpool have been tracking him for years. It did look like he was going to Spurs as the season was finishing up and I'd say they're still favourites to land him.}

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 21:05:07
Fairplay there Ed only to be expected really. He might find himself being 2nd or even 3rd choice at the better BPL sides though.

{Ed007's Note - The game time we'd offer him is certainly a plus point in our favour. He played over 40 game for Fulham last season so let's hope the lad's not going to be happy, at 19/20, sitting on the bench at best at some EPL team after playing so regularly.
And let's face it, even being interested in a player like Dembele is night and day from your Danny Grahams and Steven Fletchers of this world. Wherever he ends up Dembele has the makings of a cracking player.}

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 21:32:58
Agree mate when I heard rumour last night I thought no chance but there's a wee bit a hope left in me lol definitely the most exciting player we've been linked way.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 21:55:09
Well that's the glimmer of hope i'm going to hold on to. I keep banging on about seeing proven players and experience signed but when the young players we go for have this kind of pedigree, it's much better than your Frudjonssons and Baldes. And a heck of a lot more exciting than Danny Graham.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 Jun 2016 12:05:16
KT has just signed a new 5yr deal. Well done to the board let's hope we don't panic and sell him for the first big bid that comes in.

{Ed007's Note - Arsenal have turned their attention to another LB which - reading between the lines - makes me think we turned down their approach for KT.}

Believable3 Unbelievable1

24 Jun 2016 12:25:05
Or Arsenal never made a bid is more likely!

{Ed007's Note - Nobody has said Arsenal made a bid so you're probably right.}

Agree0 Disagree2

24 Jun 2016 13:00:30
Or the never made an approach! You have been reading too many rag papers.

{Ed007's Note - Sorry pal you must have me mixed up with someone else but it's nice to hear that the papers are reading here to keep them right. I told people on the 20th of May - a whole TWO MONTHS ago - that Arsenal's had serious interest in KT.}

Agree1 Disagree2

24 Jun 2016 15:41:16
KT comments about his new deal are great. Imagine if every youngster had the same reaction to a breakthrough season. perhaps we would see a lot more youth players making it at the top clubs.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jun 2016 16:04:27
Certainly good news Re Kieran Tierney . He had a marvellous first season and I honesty hope this season goes as well for him Even if he wants to go to a "super EPL team" I think he would be best served where he Is for at least another 2 or 3 years .
Of course as a Celtic supporter I would like to see him out lasting Danny McGrain.

Agree0 Disagree1

24 Jun 2016 17:40:47
Brilliant to get him on long contract.

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Jun 2016 21:17:53
Wanyama confirmed at Spurs. £11M rumoured to be the price.

Believable1 Unbelievable1

23 Jun 2016 21:31:28
How much add ons are we due 1mill+?

Agree0 Disagree2

23 Jun 2016 21:58:58
Beerschot get a percentage aswell its not even 1M we will get.

{Ed007's Note - That's nothing to do with any sell on clause, the money we're owed is due as solidarity payments under Article 21 of RSTP Regs:

'If a professional is transferred before the expiry of his contract, any club that has contributed to his education and training shall receive a proportion of the compensation paid to his former club (solidarity contribution).'

Beerschot AC were liquidated in 2013 so I don't know if the new club FCO Beerschot Wilrijk are entitled to any monies as they aren't even a professional outfit.}

Agree1 Disagree1

24 Jun 2016 02:37:04
Cant see why people are getting all excited about development fee or the ones who think we are due sell on clause. What about the millions wasted on likes of Bangura, Pukki, Balde, Boerighter, Cole, CKR, etc? The two clowns who sanctioned these losses are still at club and guarantee same is going to happen again! But wait, PL has just pulled in less than a million from Wanyama! he's a hero.

Agree2 Disagree1

24 Jun 2016 12:24:25
I can hear the Sevconians "Just because they were liquidated doesn't mean they're a different club"

{Ed007's Note - It's the same reason why the new TRIFC never got monies owed by Setanta in 2013 - as a different club they weren't entitled to the previous club's money.}

Agree2 Disagree0

24 Jun 2016 13:02:55
No ones getting all excited DN30 would just like to know if we are getting anything.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jun 2016 13:42:12
ED007 can you please confirm what add on fee (if any) we will get, even some Celtic sites still quoting "£1m windfall from Wanyama" as you say only a development fee is due our way which I would imagine would not top £250k or anything near that, am I near the mark?

{Ed007's Note - Training compensation and solidarity payments are different, Timbo and under RSTP Regs solidarity payments are set at a maximum of 5% of the agreed transfer compensation so that's about £550k tops by my reckoning.}

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jun 2016 21:16:44
Just read on twitter that celtic have had a bid of 2m rejected for sinclair and mulgrew to sign new deal .

Believable3 Unbelievable1

Giving Hoops88 a run for his money there. He might be 'celtic minded' but does he still have the legs at 43?

Seriously, It's getting laughable now. Good job that rag has no credibility to lose.

Agree0 Disagree1

22 Jun 2016 09:13:22
Think it's sevco that are trying to sign Trevor Sinclair, he's about the right age bracket for that mob!

Agree2 Disagree0

22 Jun 2016 09:15:44
Sorry bhoys typo there but he might be ok if we could get him, not so long ago he moved to city for huge sum.

Take Trevor in a minute he's 27 and would run a riot up here.

Agree1 Disagree3

22 Jun 2016 17:51:17
27 and been loaned out 8 times . best spell 4-5 year ago. far better out there.

Yeah but his Mrs will look good in her photos wearing the hoops.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jun 2016 21:38:35
Seen on twatter that we have had a bid just over 2 million with add ons accepted and he will be holding talks in next 48hrs.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jun 2016 10:18:03
A Birmingham newspaper says no bids have been submitted. Local papers tend to be a lot more accurate than national ones or twatter.

Agree0 Disagree1

21 Jun 2016 16:54:30
Mulgrew to be offered new 3 year deal according to social media.

Believable1 Unbelievable1

21 Jun 2016 17:47:57
Hope so provides good cover strolls spfl.

Agree2 Disagree3

21 Jun 2016 20:25:28
Agree, him and Erik are by far the best two we have, Jozo might yet prove me wrong,

Agree0 Disagree1

21 Jun 2016 21:03:05
I'd keep him around for domestic back up but not sure I would have given him 3 years!

Agree0 Disagree1

21 Jun 2016 21:21:01
I really hope this isn't true, too slow for higher level competition. You say he strolls the premier but there is many times when he's either slow to react or gets caught ball watching. I appreciate he can cover a few roles but with his pace would you like him back at left back? I wouldn't personally, he's meant to have a wand of a left foot . When was the last free kick he scored from? When he plays midfield he generally plays his "long passes" which 8 times out of 10 go straight out. If we want to improve, in my opinion we need to be looking for a better player than Charlie . But hey, this site is all about different opinions.

Agree4 Disagree0

21 Jun 2016 21:37:46
3 years! You've got to be joking.

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Jun 2016 21:49:43
I thought wed offer him a year with the option of another.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jun 2016 08:09:21
Quinn agree Charlie lacks pace and he's never a left back, and if Jozo and Eric are fit they'll play but as cover he does fine, disagree about his passing usually finds a man and he adds composure to the back four, next to Effe and Boyata Charlie's like Backenbaur.

Agree0 Disagree2

22 Jun 2016 09:57:21
Quinn you hit the nail on the head there bud.
Mulgrew does not stroll the spfl and gets caught out plenty.
Not good enough

Agree2 Disagree0

22 Jun 2016 10:47:00
All about opinions some want him to stay some don't IMO nobody in Scotland better than him, as far as getting caught out most CB will get caught out.

Agree0 Disagree2

21 Jun 2016 08:10:32
Does anybody know if Scepovic was at training yesterday, heard on radio that Granada were interested and trying to make an offer, seems strange given their connections.

Believable1 Unbelievable0

21 Jun 2016 11:10:17
What connections?

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jun 2016 11:43:37
The owners also own watford and udinese, they are always signing and then loan swapping through the teams, but usually they sign youngsters, last I saw was that they had around 200 players on non contract affiliation.

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Jun 2016 16:10:04
Thanks for that . I see what you mean now.
