Has anyone heard if we are looking at any forwards? definitley need one for back up.

Just like clockwork the Bojan rumour is up and running again.

Makes a change from Robbie Keane.

That actually happened though Campsie Bhoy. If the Bojan thing was a goer I'd be delighted. He'd run riot up here.

Had to happen with the amount of times someone spotted him at The stadium.

Joel Campbell could be available for around £3m this summer. He'd be a good replacement for Roberts.

Agree1 3Disagree

25 Jun 2017 15:36:41
He would be a great addition, versatile player.

Agree0 3Disagree

25 Jun 2017 23:13:42
I have mentioned Joel Campbell as a good option, he would run riot for us, was excellent for Costa Rica in the World Cup a couple of years back .

Agree0 0Disagree

26 Jun 2017 20:15:14
@LM67 - dream on! You couldn't afford Ali Campbell from UB40.
Haven't you heard Celtic are skint because of the hotel venture. Transfer activity will only be sanctioned once the VVD money comes through.

Agree0 1Disagree

25 Jun 2017 12:37:12
I have a feeling that teirney is going to get moved forward this season in to a more attacking position, there has been a lot of talk about a left back coming in and that's the only reason I can see why we would buy one as izzy is sitting as back up, any thoughts on this.

{Ed007's Note - Why would you want to play one of the best young players in Europe out of position? What's next, Dembele at CB and Sinclair anchoring the midfield?}

Agree4 1Disagree

25 Jun 2017 13:18:49
Ed if you read my post I never claimed to want to play KT at left back, just have a feeling that it might be Brendan Rogers plans for him because of the rumours about left backs coming in particularly the lad from Leeds and holland, at Liverpool Rogers tried this with a few young players, and it never done Bale any harm,

{Ed007's Note - And they called it 'getting Brendaned' at Liverpool when he done stupid things like that. So you really think Rodgers is considering changing the position of one of the best young prospects in Europe that top clubs would all love to sign to play in that position? If he does he should be sacked for gross stupidity.
And Gareth Bale was honking as a LB, absolutely honking.}

Agree0 2Disagree

25 Jun 2017 13:44:26
Ed007 I agree don't move your best players out their position but I am sure I read Tierney played quite regularly on left side midfield at development level did he Not?

{Ed007's Note - Probably, players play in all different positions at those levels.}

Agree0 2Disagree

25 Jun 2017 13:45:03
A lot of talk right enough, I'd imagine that you could count on two hands tops the people who know the real situation. Rodgers and Davies, Lawell and Congerton Desmond and a handful of agents. Meanwhile the papers link us with every player available. I'd imagine we'll find out more in the next month. KT will be a revelation in Europe this year and the money we will be offered for him will test his resolve to stay for 10IAR. I think he could do a job on LW but why bother when Sinclair is there and Tierney puts in the best possible shift at LB every time.

Agree0 1Disagree

25 Jun 2017 14:14:22
That would mean taking sinclair out of his natural position to accommodate a player not in his favoured pos, can't see it myself.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 Jun 2017 14:14:34
no point playing players out of position e.g. Armstrong at him now playing where he should be. I think with Toure left, I think he has identified that position to be strengthened before the qualifiers.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 Jun 2017 14:08:47
We're only being linked with LBs because according to some rags we're "struggling to keep hold of Tierney".

{Ed007's Note - And even though we triggered another years option on Izaguirre's contract the Club want to extend that to a 3 year deal.}

Agree0 0Disagree

25 Jun 2017 14:46:10
Exactly ed! They are begging for KT to leave, it must hurt them so much that we have arguably the best LB in Britain and he's Celtic daft! With Izzy I'm long term and KT looking to stay for 10 I'd be surprised if we sign another LB.

{Ed007's Note - And let's hope he's binned the Calvin Miller at LB idea.}

Agree1 0Disagree

25 Jun 2017 23:30:57
Like the rest of us I read the s#it but when are we going to start believing that. as per years gone by. we do OUR business in a professional and dignified manner and when a deal is done we will announce it. HH. FB.

Its strange how unsubstantiated rumours in the SMSM can result in such a long discussion on here . We know it will be a complete fluke if rumours like this come into fruition.
What I find it hard to stomach that we should have to read what Liverpool fans thought of Brendan when he was there . Sneering at him they should have been thankful he took them to their highest league position in over 30 yrs .
A manager wouldn't be doing his job right if he didn't experiment with players in different positions . Jock Stein experimented with Billie Mac Neil as centre foreward.

Agree0 0Disagree

Klopp has played milner at lb all season and he's the messiah.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 Jun 2017 18:20:10
Tierney is a left back end of. However get off the OPs back, remember Gareth Bale was a left back originally at Southampton.

Agree1 0Disagree

24 Jun 2017 11:20:28
Well there u have it bhoys straight from the main man himself brendan wanted 2 players for qualifiers and because he knows the english and European markets well that's when he'll bring in real quality his words and one more for qualifiers.

Agree6 4Disagree

24 Jun 2017 13:29:24
The fact he is happy to have one more in before qualifying matches begins is telling me he has one lined up but if he gets him great I don't think he is bothered if he does or doesn't he is going with what we have and then let's c what scraps we can get after the teams in the EPL are happy with their squads.

Agree0 7Disagree

24 Jun 2017 14:53:53
Just heard this, wonder who it is. To be honest, I think that we're cool for qualifiers at least and would imagine that the squad we have good make a good stick at a decent group. Still maintain that on our performances we would have done Ok in Leicester group last year and Spurs for that fact. At least a Europa place.

Agree5 0Disagree

24 Jun 2017 15:25:32
I'm relaxed about this. Much better we spend 6-7 million on one quality addition then at least a similar amount on another when we qualify for the group stages. And people forget we were in a very tough group last year.

Agree7 1Disagree

24 Jun 2017 17:21:37
The manager's comments made me think he his hoping that Roberts will become available late in the window when Man City have conducted their transfer business. The thing that could blow it out of the water is the transfer fee. If it is the Mooy territory it is not going to happen. Maybe another 1 year loan deal is more likely?

This could also be the reason for playing the waiting game with other targets. It's probably just a waiting game for other club's to land their targets and free up ours? Who knows, but I surprised to hear him say he only wanted 2 players.

Agree7 3Disagree

24 Jun 2017 22:07:45
Wits only right that we should be cool and relaxed about the transfer window .
Only a month ago everyone of us were excited and delighted with Brendan our manager, he has got married in the mean time but surely that won't have destroyed him as a manager.

Agree1 4Disagree

25 Jun 2017 14:05:36
it doesn't matter if the manager was guardiola or pochettino he would still have to put up with lawwell penny pinching and giving them the usual poor budget while the club sit on a fortune.

Agree4 1Disagree

26 Jun 2017 00:11:05
Bollocks P Lawwell operates within budget agreed between Brendan and Board.
Lawwell does what he is told . Under previous managers Lawwell and possibly Park were more involved in bringing in players but Rodgers wouldn't be our manager if he wasn't involved in the front seat getting players in.

Last day of the Ascot meeting, and the two big favourites Caravaggio and Winter put me back in profit for the whole meeting (as I am sure it did many other punters)
So why change a winning formula so going with the 3 favourites today
September 2.30, Dartmouth 3.40 and Thomas Hobson 5.35
But being me I love bigger priced horses so have 2 I am backing also
Nyalati 2.30 12/ 1
Squats 5.00 25/ (Sly paying 6 places)
Doing 2 each way singles and an each way double.
Good Luck everybody having a wee punt today.

Agree5 7Disagree

24 Jun 2017 17:22:18
Good picking mate. You get slaughtered on here for putting your neck on the line. September was outstanding, and your each way selection Nyalati ran a blinder to finish second. Fair play.

Agree3 2Disagree

24 Jun 2017 17:57:08
Shame about Dartmouth and Thomas Hobson 😂 £6 on, £1.85 back on each way double, not going to get rich anytime soon.

You won some you lose some - all good fun, cheers Tim.

Agree3 2Disagree

24 Jun 2017 19:23:17
Aye. Keep them coming Tim. Much better sources than my crazy da.

Agree2 1Disagree

24 Jun 2017 10:42:42
I'm sure there will be a lot of disappointment at BR saying he only wants one more in for the qualifying campaign, but it seems like the sensible thing to do. Why bring in 3 or 4 players to disrupt a team that were superb last season? Mostly going with what we have allows us to continue with the players who know each other inside out. Get into the group stages and then bring in 1 or 2 quality players. Yes it takes some excitement out of the window but I think people are getting impatient because across the city they are signing players on a daily basis. The difference is, they need to, we don't. We got through the qualifiers last year with a team that's nowhere near as good as where we are just now. Don't forget that Ambrose and O'Connell started in Astana and Janko started in Israel! So, the question is, what position is BR targeting before the qualifiers and who is it he wants to bring in? I'd say right wing is the priority as you never know how forrest will play and hayes will need time to settle. Onyekuru would be ideal (or paddy obviously) . However, I think it will be a centre half we sign, and I think BR wants Jean Kevin Duverne.

Agree4 2Disagree

24 Jun 2017 10:55:52
Only Celtic don't build properly on success, for me it's a lack of ambition within the club no to strengthen before the qualifiers. We are not giving the manager the chance to succeed.

Agree2 5Disagree

24 Jun 2017 11:27:02
Strengthen what tho Dafa mate?, we've looked solid and went undefeated, If we bring in better quality in 3 or 4 players it could disrupt the fluidity of the team, we all had the same discussion last season and that turned out not to bad, We need to start backing the gaffer lads, as with the exception of de vries i can't think where he put a foot wrong so far, If he wants one in that's good enough for me.

Agree4 0Disagree

24 Jun 2017 11:29:10
Agree Dafabet, apart from home game against Man City in Europe our squad isn't at a level to compete.

Quality of player has to be raised

Paddy out Hayes in means our squad is weaker.

Agree2 0Disagree

24 Jun 2017 12:16:11
Am sure paddy hardly got a start first half of season and we were doing fine.

Agree3 0Disagree

24 Jun 2017 12:31:16
To be honest, get a couple of quality players in when get to the group stages, no guarantee will, and nonsense in my opinion to think that top quality players will come in if qualify, still not going to change the fact that quality of a high standard only going to come in if give out high wages which we won't, that onyekuru would of been quality but he ain't interested, I reckon big gamble now if don't qualify, everyone will be moaning and dismayed, but to be fair if can't attract the players as play in a weak league with no money in it nothing Brendan can do unfortunately or the board to the point, just have to accept got to wheel and deal.

Agree1 2Disagree

24 Jun 2017 14:03:12
The position that needs strengthened most for the CL is definitely the centre of our defence, none of the 3 we have are up to the standard required, I'm sure Brendan is aware of that, our team is well enough equipped to more than cope domestically, every signing Brendan's made has contributed to the team in some way, even DeVries who's mere presence gave Craig Gordon the kick up the a*se he was needing, Eboue Kouassi was bought with next season in mind and Jonny Hayes might not be the marquee signing we wanted but he is a good player who will more than do us a turn, listen I fully expect the Sevvies to put up more of a challenge next season, but none of their signings should duly concern us, let's trust in our manager he knows what we need and will do all he can to bring quality to the club 🍀 HH.

Agree4 1Disagree

24 Jun 2017 14:09:36
We should easily have enough to beat Linfield even if we play our reserves. I'm hoping it will be a new CB that comes in as we seem to be a bit suspect still in that area. If we qualify for the group stages then hopefully that will attract the kind of player BR wants to bring in. ST and CDM maybe to follow. Although I'd be happy enough with seeing more of Eboue if we got rid of Biton then we would need a replacement.

Agree1 0Disagree

24 Jun 2017 16:22:56
Drewzy - you're spot on mate. Can't argue with that.

Agree2 0Disagree

24 Jun 2017 17:08:56
Boyata and Shev aren't good enough. We need cover at full back and if we want to step up then a midfield playmaker wouldn't go amiss. Also back up for Gordon.

Can't say I'm surprised at the lack of activity though. Disappointed but not surprised.

Happy to see Hayes replace Forrest though.

Agree0 1Disagree

24 Jun 2017 18:41:48
I don't think that we should be complacent about the Champions league qualifiers, once we get past Linfield the teams from then on are mostly stronger than the teams we face in Scotland.
If you look at some of the teams we have faced in the last few years, Leiga Warsaw, Marlboro, Quarabag, Malmo, Astana, Hapoel, they've all been far better than anything in our country.
Hopefully we will qualify, but if the manager judges that we need strengthening, then I hope the club back him up.
I personally would look at all the teams that we could potentially draw, and try to make sure that our squad matches or betters the very best of them.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Jun 2017 19:30:51
The current team should beat any of the teams we can face on the qualifiers without any further new signings. That's a fact. I totally believe we will spend real money this window but most of it will be towards the very end. Keep the faith.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Jun 2017 19:43:22
There is no doubt that the club will back him. The issue is attracting players who can improve the team.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Jun 2017 22:17:01
When the squad is decent and with good comradeship it can be very difficult to add without breaking up the good relations between players and between players and manager . For instance if Brendan buys a good striker who comes in and does well
L G could be out the door and even Dembele could take to the road too. Instead of us having three good strikers, we could be left with one.

Agree0 1Disagree

25 Jun 2017 01:22:01
The team just now should qualify for CL without any additions but please stop going on about getting CL standard players in, as if they would come to Scotland. Let Brendan do the worrying and let him build his team without going on every 2 mins about the lack of quality he has signed. After last season he deserves our full backing, Hail Hail 🇮🇪🍀🇮🇪.

Agree2 0Disagree

25 Jun 2017 12:15:44
Chris, if you go on your argument we'd never sign anyone.
Players being unhappy because a better player comes in is no reason not to do it.
If you turn down a chance to sign a better player than Dembele, you would probably find that Dembele would move as soon as he gets the chance of a lucrative move.
In that case we would have lost out big time.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 Jun 2017 14:02:52
Yeah we need to trust BR which we all do no question asked but one thing bugs me is Eboue K. Why bring him in as he hardly got a look in last year for big money I hope he steps up looks good but want more for that price.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Jun 2017 08:06:31
Mandanda unhappy at Crystal Palace according to Sly. I would love him here. What do you guys think?
