DR running the story that Sevilla are in for Henry Onyekuru now. It seems to me that if we were really desperate to get him we would have paid the money and got the deal done quickly like we did with Kouassi. This story will run and run until the summer with a number of clubs "joining the race" and if he goes elsewhere in the summer, which seems likely given his attitude and behaviour during January, he'll have "snubbed" Celtic. IMO he looks a cracking player but we have the money to go out and get an established CL quality winger in the summer so it wouldn't be a massive loss.

He looks like a cracking player, somebidy we could realky do with. Was it him BR was frustrated about not signing? Possibly. As for the personality, big question mark for me. It could just take one schemer from the SMSM to literally make up that an EPL team are after him in January, and he might be getting a lift down the road from Odemwingie.


2.) 14 Feb 2017 13:21:12
If moussa leaves in the summer and let's hope he doesn't this boy might b the ideal replacement and the next big thing.


3.) 14 Feb 2017 13:32:52
Of course the gutter press will say he snubbed celtic. they'll only write this stuff so people buy their guff.


4.) 14 Feb 2017 14:27:50
Mallythetally I think he's more of a winger than a striker but it would be an excellent signing from what little I've seen of him. Ed mentioned that his attitude had been highlighted to Celtic as a potential concern though and you can understand why. Like I said though, we're now in a position where we can afford a current big thing rather than the next big thing!


5.) 14 Feb 2017 17:51:05
Agree, not an out and out striker but have not seen much of him. maybe brendan could convert him.


6.) 14 Feb 2017 19:17:34
The lads been playing as a striker this year for his club! Scored the winner at the weekend against Gent. That's 13 goals for the season so far! I'd happily take this guy.


7.) 14 Feb 2017 22:32:04
He has mainly been playing on the left of a front three Ice Man. Looks like by the time he scored against Gent though, that he was moved into the middle, once Sylla came off. It's good to have that wee bit versatility though, especially when trying to get a smaller squad.


 

 

26 Jan 2017 10:52:31
I'm sure there is a lot of hard work going on behind the scenes on the transfer front but I'd be surprised if we heard anything before Sunday as it's going to be an historic day for our club and the full focus of everyone should be on that. I can't wait and am hoping there is a full house! HH.

The s*n reporting Eboue went to a Glasgow hospital with suspected malaria! Out now and apparently given the all clear.

Kevbhoy

{Ed007's Note - Aye, Kev. He had 'suspected Malaria' but was well enough to train today...... I smell BS buddy.}


1.) 24 Jan 2017 00:19:26
Must be that Russian strain.


2.) 24 Jan 2017 07:47:18
Yeah it must have been one of those 24-hour Malaria bugs haha

21 Jan 2017 18:57:03
Ed, any idea whether the Henry Onyekuru rumour is legit? It would appear there's definitely some substance to it if the player has brought it up publicly, although that can tend to backfire on players.

Kevbhoy

{Ed007's Note - I don't know of any bid but if there is it will be a bit of a mess as their is a third party issue - Onyekuru is only part owned by his club KAS along with a sports company in Qatar which is illegal in the UK.}


1.) 21 Jan 2017 19:30:04
Cheers. I was reading that the talent agency who own the player also own the club so it's basically a front to showcase their clients. All seems a bit dodgy but he looks really good either way.

{Ed007's Note - He looks a cracking player, Kev.}


2.) 21 Jan 2017 22:21:19
I've heard don't no if it's true though that they in no way will they sell to Celtic because they want a megabucks deal


3.) 21 Jan 2017 23:49:57
It's very possible the "Celtic bid" is just a tactic to force other team's hands who actually have a genuine interest in him Replicas. He definitely looks a player but there's something a bit off about a player speaking in such detail about bids etc. to the media. I remember a few years back we pulled out of a deal for an Israeli because him and his club were singing to the press before the deal was 100% done.


4.) 21 Jan 2017 23:07:34
I know the daily record is no the best for true stories. KJ was talking about and his words were that he thinks Celtic will do a major significant piece of business this window and that KJ seems to think it's been lined up for a while. Do you think that he is full of crap or is there something in it?


5.) 22 Jan 2017 00:30:57
Kev hopefully it's us that gets him if he's a player I've not seen anything of him but hate this 3rd party stuff we'll just have to wait and see


6.) 22 Jan 2017 01:41:40
theres been rumours in the last couple of weeks about a 5m player coming in possibly a playmaker, but its probably the usual transfer window made up crap.


7.) 22 Jan 2017 08:42:21
@Replicas, It may be that the club technically own him and the talent agency only represent him so it might not be as messy as 3rd party ownership. Then again it could be a red-tape nightmare.


8.) 22 Jan 2017 10:42:02
Just watched a few clips of him, looks a class act, capable of playing across the front line. Still think we'll see one more player come in before the window closes a few outgoings too.


 

 

18 Jan 2017 18:56:40
A couple of papers/ websites linking us with Tosin Adarabioyo, CB from Man City. I'm sure he played against us at the Etihad in December. 19 years old and an England youth cap.

Kevbhoy

1.) 18 Jan 2017 21:32:48
He's was a bomb scare.


2.) 19 Jan 2017 08:10:45
Sounds like there might be something in it then! Haha.

I think after last night I'd like to avoid Hibs in the cup if possible. They're just about a stick on to win the Championship and after dishing out a doing to their fiercest rivals, they'll be on a massive high and really fancy their chances as a lower division side with everything to gain and nothing to lose in a sense.

In reality, of course, we should sweep aside anybody who's put in front of us obviously but I'd like them the least. Sevco are a joke and Aberdeen have proven they don't have the mental strength to beat us.

Kevbhoy

1.) 23 Feb 2017 12:26:33
would be a good final i think Kev.


2.) 23 Feb 2017 14:03:32
I agree Bhoywonder and I would fully expect us to win it but just the fact that they've not suffered a big defeat to us this season like the other teams, they'd probably go into the game with less fear which could make them a trickier opponent.


3.) 23 Feb 2017 14:07:49
Would be great to get hibs in the final, apart from the fact I think they'd give us the best game, a love the song sunshine on leith.


4.) 23 Feb 2017 14:51:02
The disagree bandit has returned haha.


5.) 23 Feb 2017 15:34:57
We want hibs in the final, hearts to take 3rd place and no euro football for sevco.


6.) 23 Feb 2017 16:06:00
Was thinking the same, hibs in the final would be spot on! Don't want that mob or the sheep shaggers in it! Not because we won't beat them, just don't want to see mciness or whoever the tribute act bring in face At hampden! Love beating both them but I want it to be a party atmosphere when we win the treble! So hibs would do me! Hampden a sea of green and white for the treble, doesn't get much better really!


 

 

21 Feb 2017 20:14:11
I've only just managed to have a look at the plans for the museum etc. and it looks fantastic. You have to say fair play to Pedro for this because he's always said the money brought in gets invested back into the "club" as well as the "team" and this is the kind of thing I'm sure he meant. We're starting to see it happen on both fronts now.

Kevbhoy

1.) 21 Feb 2017 21:08:23
How good does that look Kev, think of all the business that would get from fans around the world and here in sconny botland! The Emirates arena would furnish it with bookings too, a no brainer if you ask me. Hopefully we can see it through to the end, I really like the way our club is heading so hats off to the board, we really are in great hands just now.


2.) 21 Feb 2017 21:40:46
Looks class leaving the other mob way behind club like no other.


3.) 21 Feb 2017 22:16:14
without being a misery, still to get the planning ok.
Mind you, maybe the Glasgow Council planning dept will be too busy defending allegations to block this.

{Ed007's Note - I doubt the Club would have made any official announcement if they weren't confident of getting the permission. Nobody seems to know how far down the line the application is, it could be miles away or it could be at the crossing the T's and dotting the i's stage and that's why the Club have made it known.}


4.) 21 Feb 2017 22:35:41
i don't want to see money spent on a hotel, what's that got to do with celtic? a hotel that will stay empty for most of the year, i see it being a huge white elephant, i would rather see the money splashed on the team, i don't want a fantastic hotel, i want a fantastic TEAM.


5.) 21 Feb 2017 22:51:24
Re if its been approved or not, I think there's an element of release the plan, hope enough folk go 'oohh that's great' to put extra pressure on planning dept to accept?

jamesbhoy i see your point however with the emirates accross the road and the possibility of more regeneration to come in the area i think it makes some sense. Without going on, there's loads of things they could add in the future, an away game / classic game cinema in with the museum etc, lots of ways to increase revenues after the initial outlay of course.


6.) 21 Feb 2017 23:30:22
the emirates has one or two big events a year, not enough to sustain a huge hotel.


7.) 21 Feb 2017 22:50:43
james i reckon you're missing the trick altogether. If it's built that hotel will be full 95% of the time. HH.


8.) 22 Feb 2017 00:04:09
full? with who? in the deprived east end of glasgow?


9.) 22 Feb 2017 00:10:53
Its not just about the big events though. And i doubt its going to be huge.

That place is becoming the hub for scottish cycling, folk travel from all over to use it. It creates another venue for corporate events at CP, the hotel and the emirates. Also could help attract other big events to the venues like gigs etc more frequently. During the summer when rooms are usually at a premium in the center of town, it could fill a gap, the list goes on, esp with other develpment in the triangle having been mentioned in the past which if this gets the go ahead might begin to happen like shopping, restaurants and improved travel links.

There is a gamble involved i agree. There would be a few hotel chains interested in getting involved there too though especially because of the proximity to the 2 venues. I don't think Celtic would be pushing ahead with this without other guarantees for other development in the area.

That all said, you could be right and we piss money away on a big shiny metal block instead of another moussa, but i for one thing it is a good idea and has many ways of increasing revenues for the club beyond just being a simple Hotel.


10.) 22 Feb 2017 05:07:25
@jb : if you build it they will come .

HH.


11.) 22 Feb 2017 09:03:21
@jamesbhoy Celtic have a large support from England/ Ireland who stay in city centre hotels who could fill it on match weekends and foreign clubs supporters on euro nights. This is a great idea which should be applauded as we have to raise revenue streams over a longer period from other sources as playing in Scotland limits income and Europe will only get harder with the big nations closing ranks.


12.) 22 Feb 2017 09:33:42
If they keep the prices reasonable then a lot of people will use it like they use Premiere Inn etc.
Run some complimentary buses to Rail and air links like they do in many countries and you have a edge.
I think it is a good investment.


13.) 22 Feb 2017 10:07:58
@jamesbhoy67, they wouldn't be proposing it if they didn't think it would make the club money. Celtic would get a cut of the hotel money and the museum would bring in plenty I'm sure. More revenue means a better chance of improvement on the park.


14.) 22 Feb 2017 13:17:05
If it was priced reasonably it would be ma first choice for a cheeky wee durty weekend wae the Mrs. 😉.


15.) 22 Feb 2017 13:53:17
Haha I think my Mrs would be less than impressed if I suggested a night away and took her to Celtic Park. Even a walk up to the Anchor for an aperitif before dinner wouldn't satisfy her. Women eh?


16.) 22 Feb 2017 15:32:49
i've got friends who come over from ireland to watch the games and they struggle to pay for their season ticket, coach and the ferry nevermind a posh hotel, with a lot of games on sundays too they are straight home for work in the morning, no working class fan will be able to afford a posh hotel, all this crap is aimed at the corporate fans, the working class fans are the core of our support but celtic are moving away from them season by season, if they want to spend money the should raise the front of the main stand and bring the stadium the same size all the way round and do away with that embarrassing red brick frontage built for centenary season and that joke of a main stand.


17.) 22 Feb 2017 21:59:11
If you. Yield they will come 😂, these guys aren't going to go into this with their eyes closed, and I might sure they would have taken this decision lightly. The building of this, and if successful (don't forget the number of weddings) would put us light years ahead of not just Scotland, but majority of EPL, and the future looks very Rosie.


18.) 22 Feb 2017 21:25:11
The whole area where the stadium is, is night and day to what it was. this will only enhance it.


 

 

15 Feb 2017 23:36:25
Ryan Christie's goal tonight was an absolute peach! It's a shame he left on loan because I think he'd have done really well filling in for Rogic while he's injured.

Kevbhoy

1.) 16 Feb 2017 13:51:16
Never really noticed him at Caley if I'm honest but his brief outings in hoops made me question decion to farm him out. Makings of a great player. Hope he makes the most of this game time he's getting as he may even end up being the player we're looking for in the middle.


 

 

10 Feb 2017 09:23:50
Sad to hear that Rogic is out injured for a while after all the previous injuries he's had. I think it's also unfortunate for Ryan Christie as he could have had a run in the team in the CAM position. Once everybody else is fit and up to speed, I'd like to see how a midfield of Brown and Kouassi would do with Armstrong in the number 10 role, although it's more likely McGregor will fill in there for now.

Kevbhoy

1.) 10 Feb 2017 11:52:45
And henderson I would expect.


2.) 10 Feb 2017 12:25:50
griffiths and armstrong still out tomorrow but rodgers said they will be ready to return next week.


 

 

09 Feb 2017 09:47:18
The laziness of our "sports journalists" never ceases to astound me. 3 players we could go for now that we're receiving a big CL cash windfall: Joe Gomez, previously linked. Michel Vorm, previously linked. Lars Stindl, scored against us in CL. Where's the imagination? Lol.

Kevbhoy

1.) 09 Feb 2017 10:24:56
My three signings for the summer would be Roberts, O'Connell and the boy from Belguim. With no first team players leaving and maybe Fasan if his loan works out.


2.) 09 Feb 2017 14:01:34
I suspect that both fasan and o'connell are finished at parkhead.


3.) 09 Feb 2017 14:31:17
Jonace I reckon if the move for Onyekuru was legit then it was to cover losing Roberts. Can't see us getting Roberts and definitely can't see us signing both of them. I like O'Connell as well and if guys like Boyata and Bitton are being given game time then I don't see why he shouldn't too.


4.) 09 Feb 2017 16:05:41
As much as I would love us to try and sign Roberts - it seems very unlikely all things considered and as the alternatives are currently Forrest and GMS, we really need to improve that position with real quality.
We have had some real cracking wingers/ ball players over the decades and they are synonymous with attacking football and entertainment, synonymous with Celtic.

I wouldn't be surprised if he moved in the summer though Ed, even to a smaller club because, let's be honest, if DDV hadn't been such a bombscare Gordon would be warming our bench. I keep hearing people raving about Fasan so maybe he could be the man if BR has enough faith to pitch him in.

Kevbhoy

{Ed007's Note - I wouldn't be surprised to see Gordon move on in the summer either.}
