Phoned my Tim pal when I heard the Dembele news to see if it was really happening.
Looks like it is for a fee of about £500k, but he told me Dembele's wages are minimum £50k weekly with bonuses, so looks like Rodgers has finally smashed our wage ceiling.

Hi Ed any truth in dumbele deal sound a good recruitment if so.

{Ed007's Note - I'm just out from a hospital appointment where I couldn't access my phone mate but I got a message earlier this morning from Ed002 saying that there was a strong possibility that Dembele would be moving to Celtic. I didn't think it would move that fast though and had planned to post it up when I got home.}

Great news. Hey Edo we putting this one down to JP?

{Ed007's Note - I'm just catching up with it, JT. It's brilliant news, what a signing. I think we can safely chalk this one up in the BR column.}

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2016 13:44:10
That would be my hunch too.

{Ed007's Note - It's got to be. But I wouldn't be surprised to see Fletcher brought in now lol.}

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2016 07:28:31
Hearing Steven Caulker is a name on the list of CB's Brendan is interested in.
Would be a brilliant signing if we could make it happen.
I think all we need is a CB, CM and 2xST.
Would be happy with Caulker, Delaney, Dembele, Elyounoussi.

Looks like the Dembele rumour is pickin up

Hope so! Would be a very ambitious move, and on a free as well so we could probably table some very nice wages.

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Jun 2016 10:29:26
would like to see this boy in the hoops, very talented youngster.

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Jun 2016 12:08:23
If this signing goes through, I presume big wages. Do you reckon a change in wage structure at Parkhead?

I'm all for an increase, however we all know pedro keeps the finances within budget. Larger pay packets mean (should mean) better quality, better quality should mean CL qualification. However will we be spending to accumulate?

Also if a youngster comes in on top dollar, what will the rest of the squad say? Do we end up increasing the contract of the rest of them? Let's be fair apart from KT I didn't see anyone merit a wage increase after last years dross.

(Maybe Eric)

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jun 2016 13:46:03
You would imagine that we would offer a bit more to him as he is out of contract and the chances of selling him on for a good profit should he perform. Not sure of how the structure works but you would think that with potential CL football and the chance of playing in a Glasgow Derby that £20-£25k would be enough!

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2016 00:30:48
Discussion on RTE 2 tonight after England were lucky to lose to a determined Icelandic team by just one goal . Remember was it Hamann who played for Liverpool and Germany, he said the premier league paying youngsters £100k per week were destroying them . He says Germany and Spain would pay a aweful lot less and players will come through better with the hunger .
So if Dembele is in anyway money orientated we have no chance, but we might just make a better footballer out of him .

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2016 03:04:09
I think if we can get Dembele and the imminent announcement of Ibrahimovic coming to the hoops, we have the makings of a pretty strong forward line.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Jun 2016 16:20:05
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.

Believable5 Unbelievable11

26 Jun 2016 17:58:02
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.

Agree3 Disagree0

26 Jun 2016 18:55:02
tell wee sally a wiz askin.

Agree2 Disagree2

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.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Jun 2016 23:30:38
Why would a coaching member of Celtic youths know what Brendan Rodgers transfer budget would be . Celtic like any club roughly of their size, I M O operate on a need to know basis . A youth coach would have no reason to know.

Agree0 Disagree1

27 Jun 2016 00:02:23
always amusing that people think a member of coaching staff would know "the budget", unless it was Brendan of course, there will be a decent pot for players, and maybe a bit extra if Dermot is willing to bankroll

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jun 2016 15:15:44
He's not a youth coach mate read it and you'll see I played with him at youth level, and he's very much in the know, considering he is top 5 in the coaching for Celtic so have a good think who came through from youth level. This guy is my best mate was my best man, you heard it here first Dembele will not be st Celtic next season. I am a true Celtic fan and I want what all you guys want, best players possible but it ain't going to happen this year.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jun 2016 17:51:38
dermot has paid for 2 players I his time at Celtic Robbie and Roy Keane that's it, so don't expect him to bankroll anything bud, he is about the club On a sound footing, and that's the way he has always been. We have qualifiers coming up and nothing has moved yet, we do this year on year out, we drag our heels. Reason we won't spend the money simple. Look who we want as a CB Kolo Toure I mean come on.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jun 2016 20:10:04
I'm not saying your talking rubbish Smudge 1888 but I don't think Celtic would bring in BR and make him the highest paid manager in the history of Scottish Football and them give him a crap budget.

Do you honestly think the board will risk the Dark Side getting close to us this season.
And another thing, since when did the so called hierarchy have the experience to know what tactics would suit the squad?

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jun 2016 21:02:34
I would sack the best mate as he shouldn't be talking about Celtic business so brazenly.

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Jun 2016 21:40:04
Jonbhoy I for one hope your right, when you see the team with no name signing players and giving it the big in, it frustrates you, and paradise won would you not rather know the truth? Us fans always go on about wanting transparency now you have it.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jun 2016 21:42:26
Also I was talking to Jimmy who is Wee forest dad and he says he won't be signing s new contract he's going down south to the championship (family is all blue noses)

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jun 2016 22:38:01
Who have they signed exactly that's worth worrying about?
Also the way the Mad Hatter has acted, I don't think he had anything to do with signing any of them.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2016 00:36:29
A players father would probably know his son's intentions, telling anyone, before the club knows is a different thing . I said before that Celtic. like other clubs operate on a need to know basis and this "mate " s proof why that is so important . The man in the know tells his best mate and the next thing it is in a fan's forum .

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2016 12:17:46
Oldbhoy you would be complaining if you didn't know what was going on,

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2016 12:45:00
Having his medical today bud. Looks like you have a great source there in your best mate. 👍🏽.

Reading on some sites that we are interested in Shane Duffy. Decent player imo.

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.

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?

Agree2 Disagree0

26 Jun 2016 23:35:37
YAYO In my opinion he was a member of an Irish team who all played well for the first half and more . For a ten fifteen minute period he was member of an Irish team the was torn apart by a rampart France team that over -ran the whole Irish team . France played at that stage like the favourites for the Competition.

Agree0 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

One of the most ineffective players at our club

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

25 Jun 2016 22:22:57

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!

Agree2 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

26 Jun 2016 23:44:10
I must have read this wrong, probably due to my age, but I haven't interpreted Brendan Rodgers as saying that he is giving Forrest his new contract . As far as I understand as far as B R is concerned he likes the wee bit he has seen of Forrest and it is up to James to prove himself between now and December .
To me I M O that is reasonable and fair, if Forrest is injury free and plays well, I cannot see why he doesn't deserve some type of contract .
If he isn't up to it he is out at the end of his contract, not much controversy in that .

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.

Would be good but can't see it.

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.
