When the story first broke I assumed it was just to fill column inches, but reports are claiming a move for Coetzee is going ahead. I'm surprised that we're not linked with somebody with more European pedigree but as I've never seen him play I have to trust the scouts and the management.


1.) 21 Aug 2017 11:32:14
He is injured now.

2.) 21 Aug 2017 11:34:35
Yeah I read that but the South African press are still saying he's flying to Glasgow to finalise a move.

3.) 21 Aug 2017 15:04:40
Doubt it will be a goer if scans come back saying he's tore his hamstring?




4.) 22 Aug 2017 13:52:45
done deal.



15 Aug 2017 18:35:08
Chris Sutton has just claimed live on BT that he has it on good authority Roberts will be our player, possibly even by tonight's deadline.


1.) 15 Aug 2017 18:55:31
Just seen that myself Kevbhoy, fingers crossed.

2.) 15 Aug 2017 18:56:18
Seen that Kev, don't think he would be saying that if there was nothing in it?

3.) 15 Aug 2017 19:04:14
Yea Kev, he said he had it on good authourity that Paddy will sign before the deadline tonight.
Strange, i thought he was away with Man C.

4.) 15 Aug 2017 19:06:37
All the way to Spain and never even got on as a sub . Come on wee man get it sorted . First time poster.

5.) 15 Aug 2017 19:28:36
if he's not even a sub could he be on the way BACK TO PARADISE

Come home paddy . The Celts are Calling.

6.) 15 Aug 2017 19:31:49
See the picture wi him cupping his ears 😂😂.

7.) 15 Aug 2017 19:34:05
He was an unused sub . They got best 1-0 . When is the first flight to glesga Al even pay for it.

8.) 15 Aug 2017 19:34:59
He is in Spain so getting back to Glasgow tonight in time to sign surely isn't possible. However, could he sign remotely Ed given the modern technology available? Am I right in thinking that the only part of a deal a player would physically need to be there for is the medical? Given he's been our player for 18 months I'd doubt he'd need a stringent medical.

{Ed007's Note - Paperwork can be done by e-mail or believe it or not the fax is still used a lot in football.}

9.) 15 Aug 2017 19:36:02
Doesn't need t be here to sigh. Can do it by fax.

10.) 15 Aug 2017 19:39:28
Hope this isn't another red herring ma hert canny handle this what a lift for tomorrow night if it happens.

11.) 15 Aug 2017 19:44:54
Just saw the news too Kev. Fingers crossed that it's true and paddy in on a plane on his way back home.

12.) 15 Aug 2017 19:46:19
Jesus I hope this is true. Now to get Stuart Armstrong to sign a deal. If it is 2 years so be it. I would be absolutely delighted if we could get those two sorted. It would be the kickstart we need to get a bit of last season's momentum back.

13.) 15 Aug 2017 20:35:42
I asked you yesterday Ed if he'd sign in the next 48 hours and you said no. With 3 hours to go are you sticking with that? I think you'll be right unfortunately.

{Ed007's Note - I'll stick with that but I'll happily be wrong about it.}

14.) 15 Aug 2017 23:02:49
Reports on celtic transfer news now say paddy will not be signed tonight. Fxxk sake! Unless anyone has good news on it.

15.) 16 Aug 2017 00:01:11
I know Ed. The celtic board have once again let down the loyal and best supporters in the world. Signing one player of quality who is still raw and two average players that are spl standard! So annoyed at the minute. If this costs us they better have some answers as to why nothing happened.

{Ed007's Note - Every manager spins the same lines about getting players in early and ready for the CL qualifiers yet against Rosenborg the only new signig that started was Hayes and he onoy started because Dembele and LG were out.
I'm still confident of CL qualification though.}



25 Jul 2017 22:10:58
I wonder if we'll do some late business this window (Roberts perhaps? ) because the VVD saga is threatening to go to the wire. I'd hope we would do our business regardless but understand the reality of our financial situation.


1.) 26 Jul 2017 06:57:39
I thought we would have had our deals done early but most players don't become available until the end of the transfer window so expecting 2 or 3 big deals to be done. Injuries and suspensions have already shown we need another CB and Striker. Although we are more than capable of winning the SPL again with ease to make an impact in the CL we need to build on that success, something we didn't do in previous seasons.

2.) 26 Jul 2017 08:31:46
Manager said in a couple interviews he was looking to get few in then wait till near the end of window.

3.) 26 Jul 2017 09:21:28
Hopefully a few more outs aswel. Ciftci and Bitton the obvious 2 who are going to find it even more difficult to get on the bench never mind starting 11.

4.) 26 Jul 2017 10:12:22
I think the biggest issue is trying to attract the players we need to come to Celtic. No matter how big and great Celtic are it is still Scottish league footy which is not a good standard. The big attraction would be European football so I hope that if we get passed Rosenberg and then through the play off round then we would be able to attract the type of players we want.

5.) 26 Jul 2017 10:25:38
As much as I hate to admit it, I have the growing feeling that wee paddy won't be returning. I hope I am so wrong about that, but I just can't see it.

The two young guys he has brought in look absolute class and wee Jonny will give his all every time he is played. We still need a CB and if this boy Caulker can be sorted out and plays the way he can then he is in with Simo no question. Both Boyata and Shev give me palpitations every time they play out from the back.

I really think young Benyu will be brilliant for us and see Mcgreggor getting less game time as a result of it. With the two strikers out, it dismays me we have nobody coming through who could lead the attack. It's not about age, it's about ability and Brendan obviously feels there isn't anyone up to it.

I'm now in panic mode to try to get a stream for tonight. It's gonny be a day of fretting over that.

Think we will score four tonight. COYBIG!

6.) 26 Jul 2017 12:35:43
I hope you are right MP i did Ntcham 1st goal 4-0 @ 190/ 1.

7.) 26 Jul 2017 14:23:39
Stan that looks a great bet.

8.) 26 Jul 2017 14:56:21
Noticed about Ntcham already he ain't afraid to shoot from anywhere, who knows an early goal and anything is possible. The pressure we put on teams after an early goal is great to watch so hopefully the same tonight.



16 Jul 2017 17:19:16
Rumours on social media that Armstrong won't be signing a new deal and will be off this summer. Shame if true.


1.) 16 Jul 2017 18:00:58
Sad to see him leave but if his heads been turned by money after playing well for 6 months then good riddance. Still don't think he was good enough for Europe but another year and he would've matured greatly, but sadly money talks.

2.) 16 Jul 2017 19:06:59
After watching the game yesterday plenty of cover if he does go. would be a mistake on his part but onwards and upwards for us.

3.) 16 Jul 2017 19:14:50
Gutted if he goes. Could see him getting the armband in a few years.

4.) 16 Jul 2017 19:36:28
I read that myself but I have no idea how reliable the source is. They are saying Southampton, Brighton, Bournemouth and Burnley have all offered him £45k a week. How do they know that? I really hope he signs up to the new contract. Goalscoring midfielders like him are hard to find.

5.) 16 Jul 2017 19:41:55
It would appear that money is his Ghod, he had an outstanding season under Brendan but if he'd rather play for a mediocre team than a good team winning trophies and playing Champions League then punt him and invest the proceeds in a quality CB, good luck Stuart I hope you don't come to regret it .
Drewzybhoy .

6.) 16 Jul 2017 20:00:26
Im not sure there is any substance to this one guys. If teams had approached him and offered wages etc that would be illegal tapping would it not. Ed?

{Ed007's Note - If another club has spoken to a player without permission then that's tapping up. Informal talks between agents about Player X moving to Team A isn't seen as tapping up.
The process should be along the lines of: Clubs will typically informally ask an agent (a) if the player is going to be available, and (b) would the player consider a move to the club. There may be some broad discussion on the sort of deal that would be offered but no more than that. If the answer is yes, it is then necessary for the club to approach the player's club to ask if they would be willing to sell and if they would grant permission to speak to a player's agent formally about a transfer and possibly even the player about actually making a move. This will typically involve either broadly (through an offer) or actually agreeing a fee and responsibility for any significant costs (agents fees etc.). Once this has happened the club will be able to speak to the player's agent and perhaps the player himself to look at the package that will be involved. Many players are looked at and discussed at a high-level with agents and clubs; a subset of those have an offer placed; a subset of those involve discussions with the player's club; a subset of those involve discussions over terms, and; a subset of those go ahead.
Agents will often try and get more specific details of wages and other financials before they should - but most clubs are happy to follow this process. Players will often talk to other players about moves but, whilst wrong, is tolerated as it would be impossible to manage.}

7.) 16 Jul 2017 20:41:13
Bhoys if Stuart decides to go, I wish him the very best in his new venture. I totally agree he is a talent that will be missed, however onwards and upwards. He would have been more comfortable at Celtic if Ronnie played him in his position. Under Brendan we are bringing in young talented players and it's making my smile massive.

8.) 16 Jul 2017 21:14:50
Shame if true. I never really understand the logic of the champions league argument yes we qualify every year and if we get through qualifiers the player will get to play six games against big teams probably two teams way above our level and one of similair strenghths . in the EPL unfortunately they are gauranteed games against half a dozen top teams and another 8-10 about thier own level. so the better standard and competition as well as huge increases in wages are very appealing but money isn't everything.

9.) 16 Jul 2017 22:00:06
Wish him the very best, u having a laugh! Good riddance I say! 1 good season he's had and he's running for the promised land already! Sorry but it leaves a bad taste in my mouth and I for one will not be wishing him well or good luck! Yes I would never deny a guy the rite to make more money but there's way u go about it! Like I said get as much as possible for him and get him to f**k! Sick of actually hearing about this now and it won't be any good for team moral! Don't have him anywhere near the first team and bring ntcham and benyu in! 2 boys who actually want to be there!

10.) 16 Jul 2017 22:06:08
Was hoping he would sign but if not to be good luck to the lad, I saw enough yesterday to remain positive we have others who can take his place, if we can get £8m we can get in another 1 or 2 top players with that cash so we move on and will continue to improve without him. If true and he definitely wants to leave I hope he is sold asap the quicker the better so we can focus on who wants to play for us I really don't see the point in playing him again if he is leaving.

11.) 16 Jul 2017 22:41:58
Just be another player who left too soon to chase the money and the dream of playing in the mighty PL and end up at some pish Championship club fighting relegation because they couldn't cut it at the top. Armstrong's only contribution in the game against England was to give the ball away and cost us the win. He was invisible up to that point. If money is what drives him then cash in as he has only had half a good season with us.

12.) 16 Jul 2017 23:11:30
I personally think he will leave. The outcome will be similar to that of Liam Miller.

13.) 16 Jul 2017 23:52:40
Was actually going to make that comparison RM but couldn't even bring myself to write his name! Lol. totally agree but buddy! Like I said this definitely leaves a bad taste in the mouth for me! The club and Brendan especially has made it clear how much they want him to stay and by the looks of it it's made not a blind bit of difference! Like I said if he does move there will be no good luck and all the best from me! Sell him ASAP and don't give him a sniff of action til he's sold!

{Ed007's Note - The Club and player seem to be miles apart in wages, the duration of the deal and bonuses.}

14.) 17 Jul 2017 00:37:03
I remember u saying it was the length of the deal that was the issue ED, doesn't surprise in the slightest there's more to it than that! If this was going to get sorted it would have been done by now. i know it comes across bitter me having a go at the boy but I really can't sit here and say he goes with all our best wishes bla bla bla! I want him sold right away before this affects the dressing room! We've got the most important games of our season over the next few weeks and having someone like that in and about the squad has no benefit at all! What does that say to the boys in our squad that a player who doesn't want to be there and has no commitment to the club still gets a game! I know I'm coming across harsh here and the boy seems like a nice enough guy, but our club comes first and that's all that interests me! What's your honest opinion on it ED, am I being to harsh here?

{Ed007's Note - I said all along it was down to wages but someone quite sternly told me it was the length of the new deal that was the sticking point. It won't affect the dressing room though, players rarely get involved in stuff like that, they'll be in a player's ear to sign etc but it won't affect morale.
I've been a long term fan of SA even when he was struggling but I can understand the way some fans are feeling about it, I said weeks ago there was a point quickly coming down the line where someone must make a decision either way. If the rumours are true I think that point has come and Celtic need to seriously look at offers. Then again it could all be nonsense and he'll sign up.}

15.) 17 Jul 2017 02:44:47
If his head has been turned then so be it no point in keeping a player with one year left on his contract punt him now and get some money back.

16.) 17 Jul 2017 08:21:36
The bhoy looks happy he's an intelligent lad BR has brought life into his career SA knows he's become a big part of the starting 11 so the question the big question for SA is how much is enough for him?

17.) 17 Jul 2017 10:42:50
First of all I hope he stays. As for some of us to be slagging him off, I really don't see what he's doing wrong. Armstrong isn't a kt where he was brought up loving the hoops, he has no real affinity to the club, although I'm sure he loves it there. What is happening to us is exactly what happened with him at Utd, he was offered a better contract, a better opportunity and he took it. It's the nature of the beast, any player anyone signs it's predominately for money and opportunities. Someone on here earlier was saying play ntcham or kundai as they want to be here. Ntcham has already said he wants to play in the premier in the future. We all know most of our lads have a shelf life of two to three seasons max because the standard isn't that challenging. He stays, great he moves on, we replace him and the cycle will continue.

18.) 17 Jul 2017 08:41:53
You say wages are the issue Ed, does the boy seriously think he deserves to be our top earner!? £20k a week would double his current wage, he doesn't deserve more than that after one good season. Playing wise I don't think it will affect us too much. He obviously scored a good few goals but McGregor started to add that towards the end of the season. I also think Ntcham and Brown will be a more solid base which will allow us to play 4-2-3-1 all the time with Rogic in the team who has a better strike rate than Armstrong anyway. Its a shame cos he was improvint but oh well, he certainly won't go on to VVD or Wanyana level down there.

19.) 17 Jul 2017 01:06:06
Yeh i mind u saying someone had told u it was 2 years he wanted but we want 3! I'm a long term fan of the lad to ED, I know it doesn't sound like it but lol! Think it's the fact I really rate him, as do most of us that this is a right kick in the balls if true! But I think your spot on mate, The time has come to get as much as we can and move on! Use the money to bring someone else in! and I know what u mean about players not bothering about things like this, but just feel it sends the wrong message to players champin at the bit to get a game that a player who isn't committed still gets a game! I wouldn't start him in any game now until he's sold! And that's not me being petty, just feel there's other players who can come in and do a job! Whatever happens I trust Brendan and know he'll have all possible outcomes covered! HH.

20.) 17 Jul 2017 13:37:13
Think he'd be a massive loss ģoal scoring midfielders are thin on the ground plus he has a habit of scoring against sevco big loss imo.

21.) 17 Jul 2017 14:55:27
cant stop him going but i don't have to wish him well, he hasn't done that much unless you count one good season after all he didn't set the heather alight the season before but still took a decent wage, so if he goes its to line his own pockets which he is entitled to do but i will not say thanks for all youve done and good luck.

22.) 17 Jul 2017 21:12:20
If he is getting the chance to play at the top level in the EPL then he has to take it, simple. Forget the money, he will get the chance to test himself week in week out. He wouldn't want to end his career like Scott Brown having never tested himself and found out just how good he was.

23.) 17 Jul 2017 21:12:34
he is very close to a move, he has been offered 4 times what he's on by english clubs, celtic only offered him double what he is on just now.



04 Jul 2017 16:48:14
Mario Pasalic is now being reported as the man BR has been talking about. Until something is done this is all we're going to get. Boats saying he was at CP then his bro saying he's staying at Chelsea. It rumbles on. Hopefully a decent win tonight! HH.


1.) 04 Jul 2017 20:02:59
His brother gave the party line Kev. I don't believe him.

2.) 05 Jul 2017 00:04:00
When I said I wanted a decent win I meant for us hahaha!

3.) 05 Jul 2017 18:58:55
it was a decent win for us kev! lol.

16 Aug 2017 22:28:01
I've said on here before that I hadn't been too impressed with Ntcham so far but tonight he was absolutely first class. He'll be a big player for us in Europe.




13 Aug 2017 10:43:32
Has there been any update on the Armstrong situation? BR has reiterated his desire to keep him at the club and I'm quite hopeful that he'll still be here come 1st September. He gives us great drive and more than his fair share of goals so it would be a shame to lose that.




10 Aug 2017 13:18:50
That's us got a day less to prepare for the game at Ibrox. Somebody called it last night!


1.) 10 Aug 2017 14:24:43
we can rest players against dundee, they will need to play their full team against thistle.

2.) 10 Aug 2017 14:37:44
Kev : yea they get a hop skip and a jump across the water and 1 days more rest, they really need to look into these draws and make them. Hm Hm, well need I say it 🙄.

3.) 10 Aug 2017 17:16:27
What preparation is needed to go to snake mountain and beat that mob? @ Jamesbhoy I would be more likely to rest players against the Sevies than against Dundee especially since it's CL matchday 2 the following midweek after Sevco.

4.) 10 Aug 2017 18:47:13
Yeah there can't be any excuses if we slip up against them. The first game we need to put down a marker and rattle a few past them on their own turf.

5.) 10 Aug 2017 19:15:50
They're no concern. Mid table mob. Hibs will batter them this weekend.

6.) 10 Aug 2017 20:17:08
The hibs game at the weekend will be very enlightening as to how good or bad or indifferent, either side is.

7.) 10 Aug 2017 21:20:18
Agreed, Alves and Dorrans are good additions but I'm not buying into the SMSM hype. That game will hopefully shed a bit of light.

8.) 11 Aug 2017 17:12:53
Guys let's not go down this route, leave it for the ex bear's
In August we gain an extra day to prepare for the home game against Astana and also an extra day's recovery for the return leg.
(probably some poor fixture compiler is already in trouble over this lol)
Anyway we could play our U12 team and still beat the new club.

9.) 11 Aug 2017 17:23:49
nah stevie, full team out against them for maximum humiliation lol.

10.) 11 Aug 2017 17:21:48
no stevie the full team have got to play against that mob for 100% humiliation for the currants.



09 Aug 2017 11:53:46
Ed, any update on Kouassi's injury? It must have been a sore one because he likes to put himself about.


{Ed007's Note - Nothing yet, Kev.}



08 Aug 2017 11:24:37
Delighted at all the positive noises about Paddy coming back but slightly troubled that it would appear to be another loan going by reports.


1.) 08 Aug 2017 12:05:13
One would imagine Kev that there would be an option to buy this time

Loan or not think we all just delighted to get him back (y)

2.) 08 Aug 2017 12:15:45
I would much rather the club had bought the player as there is no doubt we have the funds, however we can never go down the road of £8 - 12m players as it could wreck the budget, wage structure and player harmony within the club in a very short time
I suppose a loan deal is better than no paddy at all and the circumstances of a sale may change in the future and it also means we can add another couple before deadline.

3.) 08 Aug 2017 23:43:22
Brilliant post, OAB. I would ask the peeps who want an 'option to buy'. if he sets the place alight (again) can u imagine the money Citeh will want? Look at who they have sold recently, and the sums involved. Think a loan suits all parties here TBH.

I'm not saying I want us to get Moult at all btw. My point was that this guy is an unknown quantity and could be a risk (on the other hand he could be a total gem) . LM67, whether you rate him or not, Moult is better than Ciftci. Also the suggestion that a CL quality striker will come to Scotland and be 3rd choice is wishful thinking Stevie. BR has stated we aren't looking for another TOP striker as he couldn't be kept happy.

KenLikeEh I'm hoping that BR's public stance of not needing another CB is just to boost the players because I think we need another CB of quality as Erik and Boyata aren't quite at that level for me.

The biggest saga was always going to be Dembele but surely now he wouldn't pass a medical. Armstrong will put pen to paper. Hopefully we can offload guys like Ciftci and Henderson and I'd probably still send Benyu on loan to keep him playing most weeks as it won't happen here. Paddy Roberts and maybe 1 or 2 wee surprises.
