Ed I've heard a rumour Griff could be set for a move to the MLS. Have you heard anything?

Ice Man

{Ed007's Note - No mate.}


1.) 13 Jan 2020 20:44:06
Find that quite plausible, Ice Man: he'd be the kind of player, at the stage in his career, that they often look to bring in. I would never write-off Griff, but wonder what the fø©« is going on with him.


2.) 13 Jan 2020 20:59:17
Could he be teaming up with the manager that got the best out of him?


 

 

12 Jan 2020 17:48:50
Reports saying we have had a £5.4m offer rejected for Willem II Greek striker Vangelis Pavlidis. I'm assuming if this is true we turned our attention to Klimala or could we be preparing for life after Eddie or maybe Griff and Bayo could be for the off.

Ice Man

Guy on twitter set up a fake account and started this rumour. Shows how simple it really is.


 

 

11 Jan 2020 11:52:21
Ed reports in Poland are saying Celtic have came in hard for Patryk Klimala and say he could be a Celtic player any day. Any truth in this?

Ice Man

{Ed007's Note - I have no idea about that but I did say yesterday that Klimala was more likely to arrive than Sporar.}


1.) 11 Jan 2020 12:26:09
I heard Lawwell went into negotiations WITHOUT club cheque book, bank card and just whistled throughout talk with agent, yes Pedro REALLY is trying hard to sign someone!
What ME sceltical whatever gives you that idea?


 

 

05 Jan 2020 09:39:20
Ed with all those the strikers being linked to the club this month, the latest being Glen Murray and Billy Sharp on loan, as well as Sporar on a permanent deal, could it be the club are looking to bring in 2 strikers this month?

Ice Man

{Ed007's Note - It could be but I wouldn't hold my breath on either Sharp or Murray rocking up at Celtic Park any time soon.}


1.) 05 Jan 2020 12:41:43
I was wondering that as well. Are we going to sporar and an experienced player as well?
You think if we do then both griffiths and bayo going on loan ed?

{Ed007's Note - Lennon said two weeks ago that LG won't be going anywhere in January. Bayo will be moved on either on a loan or permanently if we can find anyone willing to take him.}


2.) 05 Jan 2020 13:04:36
Lennon has been known to say things before then do the exact opposite ed. 😂.

{Ed007's Note - 😁


3.) 05 Jan 2020 13:51:55
Wouldn't want either Sharp or Murray. A lot of Murrays goals have been penalties for Brighton so his goal ratio in open play is honking.


4.) 05 Jan 2020 22:11:37
we are fighting for a title we need someone who could come in with no risks and hit the ground running murray is a no risk striker who would score goals in a 6 month period if supplied.


5.) 06 Jan 2020 01:32:55
Liamlennon this has Ian Wright written all over it. Too much of a veteran for me.


6.) 06 Jan 2020 11:15:39
Heard that rubbish with every has been fae the EPL we sign.


7.) 07 Jan 2020 08:13:52
Pure snobbery guys he's linked with Newcastle and villa but yous don't think he will score goals in SPL no doubt he would it's not Carlton cole we are talking about here.


 

 

27 Sep 2019 23:29:41
I've heard Lenny and the coaching staff have been massively impressed with Jonathan Afolabi since he arrived at the club. He is now training daily with the first team although he will continue to play games with the development squad. Don't be surprised to see him make some match day squads in the near future. At 19 he is the same age French Eddy was when he arrived. Could be another superstar in the making.

Ice Man

1.) 28 Sep 2019 00:11:51
That was a brilliant goal he scored the other day in the game against Morton, I think it was, for the reserves, the games on YouTube, .

I was at the game yesterday and there's no doubt it was one of the poorest performances of the season. So with that being said I'm happy with the result if not much else. One thing that was noticeable and has been a common theme for a while now was the amount of crosses into the box, especially in the first half, from Hayes and Bauer. Every single one found the head of a Ross County defender. I would like to see us look at big physical striker who is good in the air. I'm pretty certain it won't happen in this window but we need a striker who will rough up centre halves and attack our crosses into the opposition box. It gives us a different option to the strikers we have just now.

Ice Man

1.) 26 Jan 2020 16:40:40
What we need is somebody like big Ikpeazu of hearts but with skill.


2.) 26 Jan 2020 18:21:11
I will take those poor performances from now until the end of the season if we win 3-0 and put another 3 points on the board.

It is getting close to the business end of the season and 3 points are all that matter as far as I am concerned.


 

 

22 Jan 2020 23:39:56
Great result at a tough place to go to. Not an outstanding performance but without doubt the result was the most important thing tonight. I must admit I'm loving the 3-5-2. Thought there were some really positive signs with the understanding and link up of Griff and Eddy.

Ice Man

1.) 23 Jan 2020 08:55:44
IceMan, me too. I think the system change is with a view to how we might shape up against the Mob. Playing with 2 full backs (Frimpong/ Boli) and 2 wingers (Forrest/ Mikey) left us light in midfield. The system last night was O'Neil's style and it's either Forrest or Frimpong same on other side. Elyounousi, Boli, Taylor or Hayes. Add in Christie or Rogic to available midfield 3 and we have a strong line up. Weakest part is the back 3 though, could do with el Hamed in there and a reinforcement.


2.) 23 Jan 2020 09:18:09
Not sure I'd want to go in against the mob with 3 at the back. They are strong in wide areas.


3.) 23 Jan 2020 09:51:54
Agreed Kev but if played right the spare man, let’s say El Hamed gives cover to the wingback. So Frimpong has cover if he is caught upfield. All good in theory.


4.) 23 Jan 2020 11:14:23
Was great in theory when o'Neill played it until the mob worked out how to use lovencrantz to murder it.


5.) 23 Jan 2020 13:15:58
What would you go with kev because we are light in midfield up against them 4-5-1 maybe?


6.) 23 Jan 2020 14:32:07
I actually agree with you Kev. Against that mob I would match their 3 in the middle with 3 of our own and forget about the number 10 role. 4-3-3 dropping into a 4-5-1 when defending.


7.) 23 Jan 2020 16:52:06
Ditto Ice Man 👍.


8.) 23 Jan 2020 21:34:47
To be honest I'd play 4-4-2 if we're going with two strikers. If they're playing with 3 in midfield I'd be looking at dominating them. It could easily be adapted to 4-3-3 by pulling one of the strikers back. Griff likes coming in from the right and Eddy the opposite way so don't see how it couldn't work.


 

 

11 Jan 2020 17:26:19
Now as some of you may know I am a fan of Neil Lennon however when it comes to talking to the press about our transfer plans, I thinks he comes across as an absolute amateur. He said he expected two players to be signed and join the squad in Dubai. The squad fly home tomorrow and no players have been signed. It was the same during the summer when CL qualifier deadline was approaching, again he said he expected 1 or 2 signings before the deadline and guess what. No players arrived. He did exactly the same in his first spell in charge. I think he's better to keep his mouth shut and would not end up looking stupid.

Ice Man

1.) 11 Jan 2020 17:55:00
Everything I seen or read he said he hoped, not expected.


2.) 11 Jan 2020 18:08:29
Agree but maybe the money men told him the deals were close and are penny pinching as norm and maybe by saying that he puts pressure on them. but who really knows.


3.) 11 Jan 2020 18:08:48
He needs to keep quiet until the deals are done.


4.) 11 Jan 2020 18:12:32
It looks like the usual window for us iceman. Going to get players in at the last minute . I know we have a fair bit of time left in the window but it seems to take an age for us to sign players . Surely ground work and discussions have taken place, surely they have decided now who their number one targets are. Coming back after a period where we haven’t really played well lately, the squad needs boosting with quality, the way the fans and club felt after the Rangers defeat we should have turned around the mood by signing early. This dragging stuff out just winds up the fans more, with the shoe on the other foot, when the Rangers lost earlier in the season the next day they signed kent. It changes the mood around the place, I’m sure we will get players in but it would have been nice for them to be in early. We should have had them in to integrate with the team in Dubai •.


5.) 11 Jan 2020 18:40:05
Burke, Weah, Shved, Bayo, Toljan, Perez and Gutman came in during last season's dreadful transfer window in 2019/ . So we better have raised the bar this year instead of squandering millions.


6.) 11 Jan 2020 19:08:39
Pud Burke and Weah were good signings for me. They gave us something different and both played their part in us marching on to the title. The 2 American lads are prospects so can't judge them yet.


7.) 11 Jan 2020 19:28:29
Didn't Shved spend the rest of the Ukranian season on loan back to his old club? So he was never really signed to make an impact for last seasons run in.


8.) 11 Jan 2020 20:38:54
Quinn 1888. Sevco signing Kent was reckless on their part and may well come back to haunt them.
I always want to see us strengthening our squad but I think the main thing that will decide our season is how the manager sets the team up tactically.
I feel we have better players at our club than Sevco has but Lennon is consistently being out thought on the tactical side by Gerrard and he keeps leaving us outnumbered in midfield.
This season we have managed to compete with Lazio, and finish top of our group in the Europa league, it shouldn't be beyond the players we have to get the better of Sevco if the correct tactics are used.

In my opinion I think it's time we looked at a different formation. For me I would do away with playing a number 10. I would much rather see Ryan Christie in beside Broony and McGregor and driving forward from midfield, much in the way Petrov used to do, than sitting in the number 10 role. A lot of the time yesterday he was receiving the ball with his back to goal and their midfield was quick to close him down. This would also allow us to play a second striker.

Ice Man

1.) 30 Dec 2019 18:04:22
I would like the manager to recognise when our formation isn't working and make changes quickly or even better use the experience of just playing a team and adjust the formation to counter theirs but I don't like the mostly used 4231 I saw wee Strachan talking about the 10 role and how it's not nearly as effective as it used to be.


 

 

16 Dec 2019 18:29:17
I'd love to see wee Jerry Frimpong used more as a winger than a RB. The little fella is an absolute wizard on the wing. Elhamed RB with Jezza in front of him. That's what I'd like to see. I know people will say what about Forrest but I think Frimpong carries more of an attacking threat plus Jamesy can also play on the left. Every time Frimpong received the ball yesterday you could just sense the crowd believed something good was about to happen and the majority of the time, it did.

Ice Man

1.) 16 Dec 2019 18:57:35
Agree 100%, he was a joy to watch. Reminded me of Robert's when he was on song. Incidentally, I would take him for left wing, big upgrade on Morgan and Mo is only a loan. He is out of favour again.


2.) 17 Dec 2019 12:07:53
Roberts will end up at a rubbishty london club so he can reignite his bromance with teirney.

It wouldn’t surprise me. I thought the last 2 or 3 deals would be experienced players on loan. Let’s wait and see when they are revealed. I might be wrong but I reckon Griff could still be away by the end of the month. Against Killie I think we’ll revert back to 4-2-3-1 with Eddy up front. I don’t think Griff will potentially accept 3rd choice (although it’s a toss up between him and Klimala)

I couldn’t give a rats ass what you think. I would like Celtic to be aiming for players with a lot higher calibre than this boy. Seen a lot of him have you. Still couldn’t back up what this boy has done to be “outstanding”. If you don’t like people disagree with a post you put up then don’t one up you muppet.

The only fool is yourself if you believe a player that has “recently” been loaned out to a junior team is anywhere near good enough for Celtic. And exactly what has he done at Dundee United to merit the tag outstanding. He’s scored about 3 goals.

To be honest it never really bothers me when slugs like Kris Boyd or Alex Rae etc have a pop at our club or players. For me they are bitter little men but I thought it was disgusting what Boyd said about Griff. To criticise a player for lack of appearances claiming he wasn’t producing in training when in fact Griff had issues with his mental health Is the lowest of the low. I’m also lead to believe the “facts” that the parasite quoted were way off with Griff having played a lot more than what the fat man stated. With all that said Boyd is nothing but a low life **** bag.

Cosgrove would be a better shout for me. 21 goals already this season. Over 20 goals last season. Scored 5 goals in 5 Europa League qualifiers. Big, Physical, quick, hrs working, needs to work on his touch but different option to the strikers we have.
