Reports suggesting Paddy Roberts sees us as his preferred option on the table. With his rep meeting with Citeh (I'd guess he isn't part of their plans this season) get something done Celtic! I'd even take another loan if that was to be it, his position was the no.1 target for me this window and I'd rather have him for a year than not at all. A permanent deal would be great however we'd want the buy-back clause to be worth several million profit, just to make sure we don't end up losing anything spent more than anything.

1.) 08 Aug 2017 12:06:30
I'd hope they'd make him a Celtic player properly now; If a loan, surely we want the right to buy.

Presumably, Roberts thinks he might make the grade at City in time, and I think we can all respect that.

2.) 08 Aug 2017 14:40:20
Hi ED, have you heard anything about this? thanks in advance.

{Ed007's Note - City want a permanent deal and it looks as if Paddy's only wanting a loan deal.}

3.) 08 Aug 2017 15:21:17
Oh fur **** sake paddy bhoy. get your self back up here.

4.) 08 Aug 2017 17:00:43
rumours are he is scared of all the mad ferrets in manchester.



26 Jun 2017 20:34:38
Anton Rodgers travelling to Austria with Celtic. Fair enough, it's not unusual for players to train with managers they know. But the Mirror saying he's in the squad to play. That's got to be brown bananas surely?

1.) 26 Jun 2017 20:53:58
I wouldn't be too chuffed if he actually got game time.

2.) 26 Jun 2017 22:41:38
Surely just to get the lad some fitness, can't see him having a chance to play!

3.) 27 Jun 2017 06:38:49
Calm down boys, young Anton has been offered training facilities while he finds a new club.

4.) 27 Jun 2017 18:11:04
Who's this Jim?

5.) 27 Jun 2017 18:13:43
He's on trial.

6.) 27 Jun 2017 18:14:15
Got to be a favour to his son to gain match fitness. Nothing more, nothing less.

7.) 27 Jun 2017 20:22:43
Obviously. We are biscuit tin stuff, but not that desperate.



26 Jun 2017 20:16:27
Chris Willock reported to be joining Benfica. I suspected signing Hayes might have put that to bed anyway as a back up to Sinclair. BR saying he expects a signing in the coming days though. Any punts Bond?

1.) 26 Jun 2017 21:30:36
He say that today JimTim?

2.) 27 Jun 2017 18:18:21
I was being a dafty LM. What were presented as quotes were actually quotes from a bogus website, not BR himself.



20 Jun 2017 11:13:19
A few sources in the Netherlands linking us with Joshua Brenet. A very good RB who can also play LB if needed. I don't think we're in immediate need of a RB but I'd have Brenet in over Gamboa (who is set to miss the start of the season? ) and in time I wouldn't be surprised to see him overtake Lustig due to his pace and the general longevity of the situation. Heard anything on this one Ed?

{Ed007's Note - No.}

1.) 20 Jun 2017 12:53:12
Dutch international and fits into our normal signing criteria age-wise. Seems a decent player and I don't think Gamboa's really convinced.



24 May 2017 13:42:05
A few people down here have already asked me about Jozo as rumours of him being looked at by Newcastle are going about. Personally I can't see them matching what we would want.

1.) 25 May 2017 00:21:22
What would we want? 5-7m?

{Ed007's Note - Mike Ashley would give us more than that if Dermot Desmond 'asked' him ;)

2.) 25 May 2017 01:10:23
You can't be talking about the same guy that by Christmas will be spun and rebranded by the DR as the mkII (3,4?loose count =last chance) saviour of all orc kind?

{Ed007's Note - Mike Ashley has no intention of saving TRIFC, hanging out at Sandy Lane with Dermot would become awkward to say the least.}

3.) 25 May 2017 09:00:10
They paid that sort of price for Hanley (! ) rglen, they could jog on.

4.) 25 May 2017 11:26:14
All Hail the Lions HH . ED do u know if MD will b in squad for Saturday?

{Ed007's Note - It's not been decided yet mate but it looks like he'll play some part in the game - I reckon he'll start on the bench.}

5.) 25 May 2017 11:33:47
Add a 2 in front of that rglen and maybe we're in the right sort of range. Jozo will become better than most PL centre backs I gaurantee it. He's got a lot of potential. We do not need to sell, if the player wants to go, then that's when we sell. That's what Rodgers said himself and I'd imagine that applies across the board as Lawell will wish to see the 1st of September come quickly as possible to limit our spending.

6.) 25 May 2017 12:13:13
That sounds positive just seeing him on the bench will scare teams cheers ED on and what's this about the Liverpool Echo saying we have been knocked back for the boy Wilson heard anything ED?

{Ed007's Note - I can only see Wilson being an alternative to Roberts but I don't know of any actual bid going in. Liverpool will decide on Wilson's future over the summer.}

7.) 25 May 2017 17:37:36
Is Wilson any good in comparison to paddy?

8.) 26 May 2017 13:07:05
KenLikeEh- I'd settle for a 1 in front but if it's epl then why not:) . If the vvd transfer goes through it will really help our selling power and I'd be more than happy to cut out the middleman epl clubs for any future departures. We have been that good this season going forward and in midfield our cbs haven't had as much pressure on them. He still manged the tackle of the season right enough👏.

Think we'll see a wee bit roatation today, which is always exciting. What team would people like to see? I know Kouassi is out and not sure about Ajer or Rogic but I'd like to see something like


Ajer (Bitton if not fit)


Miller or Benyu?


1.) 19 Aug 2017 08:36:18
I think he will rest Jozo. Plastic pitch and dodgy knees don't go well together.

2.) 19 Aug 2017 09:08:01
De vries




Hazard. mcart. henderson. nesbitt. sinclair. benyu. aitcheson.

I'd rest jozo and lustig for reasons of gaelicbhoy and brown to see how ntcham plays that role himself. isn't hayes still out Jim Tim?

3.) 19 Aug 2017 09:46:45
Aye BR's already said that Jozo will only play one of the next 2 games on the plastic pitches. Don't think that teams too far away though, though I think Forrest and Sinclair will still start to ensure enough attacking threat.



19 Aug 2017 07:44:54
Just reading some comments from BR there that might suggest our plan all along was to get certain targets in, after CL qualification. Not a fan of this attitude or thought process myself, but there's a few folk on here who pointed that this may be our approach all along. It could pay off. Let's just see who the players are, but I'm starting to get a wee bit excited about the next couple of weeks and our window could finally start getting into action in terms of faces in. Is it just hope again though from myself?

1.) 19 Aug 2017 08:05:38
Itd be nice to think that if we are getting Roberts just on loan, that we'd pay a bit of money for someone else. I'd be happy with one more, dunno where the priority is? Think a striker or a utility defender, but a striker might think he won't get much game time. Rodgers supposedly keeps saying he knows how the English market works, so expecting someone not in the 25 man squads.



08 Aug 2017 21:17:04
KT goal of the season right there. Big Kirk Clubfoot's reaction was a belter.



05 Aug 2017 14:58:31
It's great to get back to normal. A good performance and it's great to have Griff back. Laffatme was first in line to eat his words and bhoy has his diving went down hill. Top of the league already, we shall not be moved.



01 Aug 2017 15:33:42
Davies saying Griff is fit 😆. What team would people go for tomorrow? For me,



Probably a sort of a 4321 shape to cover their wide players with the energy of McGregor and Armstrong.

1.) 01 Aug 2017 15:52:15
Dont think thatll be to faraway JT he may find a place for forrest tho. he usually does . although i think wee hayes is more direct and more of a goal threat.

2.) 01 Aug 2017 17:10:16
i think it'll be.

3.) 01 Aug 2017 17:47:58
Pretty much the same as u JJPD! But I'd have Hayes over Forrest! Really hope we can nick a wee early goal! Surely can't play as Shoite as we did last week!

4.) 01 Aug 2017 19:27:12
I wouldn't be surprised if Griffiths starts on the bench, I think Rodgers might try to get the job done without him and bring him on if we are in trouble.
It's difficult to know what to expect tomorrow, when you know very little about these teams it's hard to know if last week they played out of their skins, if they are a really good side, or if we were just awful on the night.
We should remember though, that they only beat Dundalk in extra time in the last round, so we really shouldn't have anything to fear, if we could score early on, I think they would have a mountain to climb.

5.) 01 Aug 2017 19:43:20
Sensible words Gerry. I'd start LG on the bench. If we need him 2nd half he's there.

Give over, and pull the other one. So they know how much this player will cost, but don't know his name? Odd that. We'd only spend that on somebody if Dembele left for sure BW.

I could only see us signing a CB if somebody left, and that somebody in my head anyway, was Sviatchenko. Reports in Denmark now that Copenhagen have made a bid. If we sold Erik and brought in somebody like Duverne, or another promising CB, I'd be pretty happy.

Oooft Daryl, stepping on 007's toes there 😃😉. Would have went with Ajer myself but that side should still be enough at CP. Bet of the day: Armstrong to come on and score.

Nice to see some sensible posters acknowledging the work and foundations laid by RD. Rodger's will have found it a heck of a lot easier taking over from RD. Said when RD was here, that the more I warmed to what he was doing, the more I seen him as a key figure in the background and perhaps not a manager (the fact he wasn't really given the chance to be a proper manager is something else) but more to do with youth development. I hope we've kept his number.

I'd give him a chance Ice Man. Still think he can be good for us. If a top drawer CB was brought in, fair enough. But with Rivaldo coming in we have a few CBs when fit.

I'd be happy enough with Boyata and Jozo. One of them being out though and we've got a bit of a problem.

Not getting on Bitton's back but it really showed tonight that he isn't actually a CB. Which isn't his fault really. Scoring three away is a plus. Another nervy night (which really shouldn't have been) but in the end job done.

I'm not sure anybody has ever asked, you just don't. He's our hero. Not the one we deserve, but the one we need. He's a (not so) silent guardian. A watchful protector. A dark knight. And pretty much any info he has is right.
