Apparently we are being linked with van der vaart on a bosman. Good bit of business if we get him

Believable0 Unbelievable1

25 Apr 2015 20:41:04
This would have been a good bit of business four years ago. Now I'm not to sure.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Apr 2015 21:43:29
He's just as good as Hoddle
He's better than Chris Waddell
His wife's a supermodel
He's Rafa Van Der Vaart

Agree2 Disagree0

25 Apr 2015 23:46:13
He's still got the quality but Its sounds BS we won't pay the wages and barely a priority position rather see the cash spent on a CF.

{Ed007's Note - Wiss67 posted earlier about this rumour and I've left it sitting as I'm trying to get a hold of Ed002 to see what she knows about the situation. As far as I know van der Vaart is going to the USA to join Sporting Kansas City.
The player held talks with them last month and although money wasn't discussed per se I think we'd struggle to match the financial package that it would take to even get close to any deal. He's on circa 4 million Euros p.a (£55k a week) at Hamburg and if stories are to be believed SKC are willing to pay him $4.7m a year (about 50k a week) as one of their designated players, we all know we're never going to get near matching that.

Agree2 Disagree0

26 Apr 2015 11:09:24
I can't see us looking at him he is 32 years old not what Celtic go for then there is his wages can't see it happen

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Apr 2015 13:03:06
Would rather see us sign Xavi.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Apr 2015 16:50:45
Xavi would be good shout

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Apr 2015 17:40:29
It's now almost inevitable once a fairly good player in his 30's is available to move , they will be heading States-side where the money is massive and the standard of play is rather more average .

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Apr 2015 21:19:14
ed, you heard anything about Celtic sending virgil to ajax and getting Kolbeinn Sigthorson and £4m?

{Ed007's Note - I have not mate, sorry. I can't see VVD fancying a move back to Holland just yet unless it's personal/family reasons.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

24 Apr 2015 22:46:44
Sigthorson worth 10m)? That's my guestemate of his value BTW?

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Apr 2015 22:25:30
I think this rumour is a load of nonsense . No way a player valued a £10 m will be signing for Celtic .

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Apr 2015 23:47:45
No Chris he's not a 10m rated striker but that's basically me valuing VVD.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 Apr 2015 15:47:46
Celtic are supposed to be interested in young right winger
Juanan Entrena of Espanyol can't find his current contract time maybe because he is only 18?

23 Apr 2015 10:47:25
Celtic have made an approach for Club Brugge and Belgian u21 CB Brandon Mechele. They're top of the league and unbeaten in EL so that says something. I only watch Belgian highlights and he does look decent but Brugge are playing Dnipro tonight anybody that has BT they're on ESPN for a closer look.

Believable1 Unbelievable0

23 Apr 2015 15:17:53
yeah he looks a good player Jim and for £3 mil looks worth it I would guess if we really are going for him VVD has got his new club sorted out and fees agreed

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Apr 2015 16:01:35
I think with the Season the boy is having 3m seems a bit low probably just paper talk.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Apr 2015 16:51:37
Will watch JT as discussed must be an abundance of talent in that Belgian league (y)

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Apr 2015 17:02:46
Could be tony but we need a CB regardless of VVD leaving with Denayer back to City. To think we could have him and Virgil permanently would be decent. I don't know why but I'm suddenly a bit more optomistic he might stay.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Apr 2015 19:33:04
It did have quotes from Virgil, RD and PL in the papaer a couple of weeks ago saying that he was staying and his agent is a bit quick to open his mouth. Wether that is just Celtic trying to higher asking price or genuine who knows, but there were QUOTES from ALL of the above

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Apr 2015 19:57:27
I truly hope you are correct Jim on VVD and you are correct on a CB first position we need to address then perhaps a CF depending on budget

Celtic are currently looking at young Monaco defender Nicolas Isimat-Mirin.This boy 21 year old can play and previous experience at Valenciennes making 80 app but has not had much of a chance since his big move.John Park has been over 3 times to see him and are weighing up a move

{Ed007's Note - Is that the lad that's on loan at PSV?}

Believable2 Unbelievable1

17 Apr 2015 01:53:56
Yeah that is the guy only looks to be getting sent back by PSV

Why is Gudetti playing before Griffiths??

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Apr 2015 20:17:08
Guidetti shouldn't be playing. Not just because he won't commit he's just not playing well. Same old story all the possession and still their goalkeeper hasn't had a save to make.

Agree1 Disagree0

13 Apr 2015 19:39:35
Ed do you know who we were looking at in Portugal last night

{Ed007's Note - Somebody mentioned there were several UK based scouts over seeing Joao Real from Academica but he's 31 - 32 in May - so I can't see it being him.}

Believable0 Unbelievable1

14 Apr 2015 13:11:30
Couple reports suggesting it was Academicas Ghanian left back Richard Ofori. We've had scouts at Benfica games a few times but I can only think we've been trying to get a glimpse at their fringe players or opponents.

Agree0 Disagree1

14 Apr 2015 15:20:36
Yeah I agree Jim can't see us going for one of there first team players that would be to costly but fringe player or opponents players then I think we could have a shout We must be really looking at at least one player though not the first time it was reported that we have had scouts there

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Apr 2015 16:06:55
So Bolton are supposedly interested in stokes, don't know how to the much truth in the story but it tx wouldn't be the biggest loss opinions?

Believable0 Unbelievable0

13 Apr 2015 17:42:48
Wouldn't be a big loss no. Certainly easy to improve that position. Not to mention we have Armstrong, GMS, Johansen and Forrest to play there. Add in Commons and the '3' in our formation has enough players already but a goalscoring wing forward would be good. Think it was poetic patient suggested a Yussuf Poulsen. Fits the profile, Scandinavian and looks the business.

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Apr 2015 13:06:37
CFC have been in contact with Liverpool regarding taking 22-year-old CB Tiago Ilori on loan next season.

The English born Portuguese Under 21 player has spent this season on loan to French Ligue 1 side Bordeaux making 11 appearances and scoring one goal so far.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

12 Apr 2015 14:07:14
ED007 is this the same player I am thinking of, who showed disrespect during a Hillsborough memorial service by texting on his mobile phone?

{Ed007's Note - That was French GK Charles Itandje if it's the same incident I'm thinking of.}

Agree0 Disagree1

13 Apr 2015 13:31:19
Ed do you know if there is a view to get him on a full contract at the end of the loan?

{Ed007's Note - I doubt that any discussions will have reached anywhere near there yet mate.}

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Apr 2015 17:44:20
I feel a bit the same with loans Tony we should look to have an option to get them permanently. Had a lil look at him and like Virgil and Denayer he looks comfy on the ball.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Apr 2015 15:21:58
Nice I hope it works out for us then

During the recent international break Ronnie Deila was in Norway watching the national team play.

This was a part educational visit and part scouting mission.

One of his main points of interest was Havard Nielsen, who came on as a sub in the 5-1 defeat by Croatia. He's a young striker who is on loan from Red Bull Salzburg to a German 2nd division team.

There has also been Celtic scouts watching Ali Adnan who plays in Turkey.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

13 Apr 2015 13:10:03
Like the sound of Adnan tall LB and from the little I saw would be good back up (if not replacment) for Izzy

nice line up. Be interesting to see what, if anything, Guidetti can do today with service likely from GMS Commons Johansen

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Apr 2015 13:14:34
Scott Bain, the Dundee GK has signed a new deal. I would imagine this means he won't be signing for Celtic as I suspect we will not be willing to meet their valuation as no doubt he will be overpriced.

On a different note I see we are being linked with Papy Djilobodji who is a CB who plays for Nantes. Apparently he is out of contract in the summer so no doubt will appeal to Lawwell.

Have not heard anymore news about us signing Zakaria Bakkali but I hope we do everything we can to get him as the boy has loads of talent.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

06 Apr 2015 17:24:50
I don't think bakkali want to sign with us at all he refused to talk to us in January so that ones not going to happen!

Agree0 Disagree1

06 Apr 2015 17:43:31
That is a shame as the boy has bags of talent and would have been a great signing for us.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Apr 2015 11:32:46
Djilobodji is an absolute beast. Like Bobo. Certainly more impressive and what we should be after than Wilson. If we got him and Bakkali i'd be chuffed. Perhaps Bakkali was just waiting to become a free to have more options. You never know he might not get a better offer.

Agree1 Disagree0

07 Apr 2015 14:20:54
Just noticed that my original post was inaccurate as Djilobodji is not out of contract in the summer. In my defence the article I originally read stated he was out of contract but turns out he has a year left in the summer. Therefore, he may be out of our price range as the figure being quoted is 5M.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Apr 2015 16:49:42
IF we sell Virgil Rab I don't see why we couldn't spend say 5m on a CB. Doubt we will but there you go.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Apr 2015 17:32:40
I agree mate but the stumbling block could be his wages as 5M players command big wages and not sure it would fall within our wage structure.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Apr 2015 17:50:47
You're right Rab but I think the 'structure' needs a few exceptions. Ideally we'd be spending that much on somebody a few years younger with hat bit more chance to recoup what we spend or even make profit. I'm sure french players pay higher tax and the average weekly wage is 20k so he could be one of our top earners. I just hope we bring in somebody for now as well as he future. Sick of positions taking a couple of seasons to get right once a player has left. I know it's something 99% of clubs have to deal with but we can help ourselves a bit. I'm a lot more confident of our direction under RD but worried like a couple managers before he won't get the full backing. Hopefully the board share my confidence in the manager.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Apr 2015 18:44:19
Hopefully with Deila at the helm we will see more players from progress through the ranks and into the first team. I suspect this season he has not given many of the youngsters a chance as he knows he has to deliver success on the park first and if he doesn't, then he won't be around to implement his vision of developing youngsters.

Unless Rangers are playing in the premiership next season, then I don't see us spending a huge amount in the transfer window but that is not necessarily a bad thing as there are lots of bosmans out there who would be great additions to the team.

However, if Rangers get promoted we will have an extra 10M in revenue pre-tax, which means we will have more to spend.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Apr 2015 19:25:20
I think you're right RD may have been cautious in that sense.

I hope the board aren't using Rangers' position as some sort of decision maker with regards to our own progress. What would they be saying our plan was if they had of totally died!?

We still have (even more chance of) European progress to look to. I'm not saying the league and domestic cups are bread and butter but Europe should be our frontier. By that I mean CL qualification regularly which will give us the platform to make inroads. But it takes consistency and not having to make steps sideways or back.

Glad to see Forrest playing again , some people want him out , but I cannot understand why anyone would want a player who potentially can be one of our most dangerous attackers out.

Agree1 Disagree2

03 Apr 2015 19:02:42
Are you sure its not Armstrong in the holding position with brown and johanson in his usual role.a bit strange other way, armstrong is just as good as a sitter but yohanson is way better in the center of 3. Gives the ball away to ofter further back. M

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Apr 2015 20:43:53
Forrest and Stokes not any where near good enough.

31 Mar 2015 12:50:09
We have been linked with Alireza Jahanbakhsh who is a 21 year old winger who plays with NEC Nijmegen in Holland.

This guy would be some player for us if we could sign him.

Seen this a few days ago on one of eds hit-whore websites. Could be true. Not particlarly impressed by any of the names this week but this lad and I think benali might be good squad players with room for improvement.

Hearing we are looking at the lad shankland from Aberdeen. Think he got a hat trick against us the other week

And a lot of people saying danny wilson of hearts could be coming in also. Anyone heard anything oon these two

Believable1 Unbelievable2

30 Mar 2015 17:54:18
I'm not sure who this shankland person is.

I have also heard about this Wilson rumour. I hope it's just a rumour and nothing else because he is simply not good enough for Celtic.

We are also supposed to be looking at Ilori (the centre back from Liverpool).

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Mar 2015 00:34:49
Shankland plays in the u20s at Aberdeen. Really good young striker. They loaned him to dunfermline and has scored quite a few there

Think wilson has came a long way. Will always split opinions among the support but still young and a leader

Heard about the Liverpool defender and will just depend on his ambitions I feel if we are interested

Also on the henderson move could this be us creating a relationship to possible take Strandberg from them. Think it was norwegianred mentioned his name a we while back

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Mar 2015 18:20:17
After what's gone on with Celtic and Aberdeen we might it find it hard to negotiate with that mob for this lad

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Mar 2015 16:48:13
Celtic are on the verge of completing a deal for Brescia's Ahmad Benali.

The 23-year-old Libyan international is a former Manchester City youth player, and has been in Lombardy since 2012.

A website reports that the player is very close to agreeing a move to the Scottish champions, with only the signatures yet to be agreed.

Benali has a contract until 2016, but it is not yet known if a fee has been agreed between the clubs for the defensive midfielder.

Believable3 Unbelievable1

27 Mar 2015 18:07:07
Eh, only the signatures to be agreed. "today ronny I will sign as Ronaldo, that ok with you"

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Mar 2015 14:56:37
If its true then they must think very highly of the guy as the sitting midfield positions are where I believe we are strongest. Browm, bitton, armstrong, mulgrew, henderson. That would make it 6 CDM players fighting for 2 places. Like I say they must be impressed.markie

Agree1 Disagree1

28 Mar 2015 15:37:31
@Markie - Brown and Bitton are solid in CM but we don't have good cover. Mulgrew is crap in that position as he lacks pace. Both Henderson & Armstrong are better suited to a more attacking role. This is an area we need to strengthen as we are in trouble if Brown or Bitton get injured.

Agree3 Disagree1

28 Mar 2015 17:44:04
Sorry mate I don't agree regarding armstrong and henderson.I think they are better DM players. Armstrong recently said he prefered DM but was happy to play anywhere. The quality of both these players is so good that that they can fit in anywhere though. Markie.

{Ed007's Note - I see Armstrong as being Brown's long term replacement IF we can hold onto him until Brown leaves or retires.}

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Mar 2015 00:03:30
I think every successive manager is always looking to improve the hub of his team ie centre midfield .
Having said that I wouldn't be surprised if there was any truth in the rumour about Benali, it just seems as if the media are putting 2 and 2 together .

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Mar 2015 11:41:51
It looks we may see how good Armstrong or Henderson are in this role as Bitton got injured in yesterday's match. I hope I am wrong about these guys being able to play that position as it is probably the most important position in the team as it provides cover for the defence and sets up our attacks as well.

@Ed007 - I don't see Armstrong as successor to Brown unless you just mean he will be the next Celtic captain. Deila has likened Armstrong to Muller, which gives an indication of how he will be deployed in the team. Armstrong is completely different player to Brown and has a totally different mentality as well.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Mar 2015 14:05:39
Did you do a survey for those managers chris. Speechless you even stated that after the rub you gave me for claiming all forward thinking clubs look to bring players in. You should write things down old man, that way you'll remember them better. ;)
