How about a fun Friday day question?

Lennon's Top 5 transfers compared with Lennon's worst 5 transfers?

Let voting commence!


1.) Not counting loans.

Mulgrew (tough one between him and Matthews)

Lujnberg (sp)
Moyokolo (by the looks of it)

This is just off the top of my head, may have missed a couple


2.) Top 5 . 1 wanyama. 2 hooper. 3 matthews. 4 ledley. 5 commons. worst 5 . 1 bangura. 2 blackman. 3.lassad. 4 miku. 5 ambrose(so far). best signing of all was john park . bhoywonder

3.) BEST
1. Wanyama
2. Commons
3. Ledley
4. Matthews
5. Mulgrew

1. Cha
2. Kapo
3. Murphy
4. Miku
5. Ljungberg


4.) Bit surprised big Forster is not in anyone's top 5 so far

Ice man

5.) Best
1. Wanyama
2. Ledley
3. Hooper
4. Commons
5. Matthews (only because he's great in one position, unlike Chico Mulgrew who's a jack of all, master of nowt).

1. Bangura
2. Murphy
3. Lassad
4. Blackman
5. If I have to pick 5 it's probably Miku but I still think (like Ed) that he was forced on Lenny.


6.) In no order

Wanyama, Lustig, Commons, Hooper, Ledley

Majstorovic, Juarez, Murphy, Ljungberg, Ambrose


7.) Best




8.) Bit harsh on Cha

9.) Foster is and should be in everyone's picks, maybe no big need in the league all that much but in cl he stood on his head to help us go far.

10.) 1. Wanyama
2. Forster
3. Commons
4. Ledley
5. Matthews

1. Blackman
2. Ljunberg
3. Kapo
4. Lassad
5. Bangura

11.) Hey everyone should stop with the ljunberg rubbish,, he was a great player and he was never play that much to show how good he was .

12.) Can't believe some of you have Ambrose. Ever since the Juventus game people have been going on about how dreadful he is. He was fantastic in every CL group game and we desperately could have used him in the Karagandy away game. Ok he has his shaky moments but overall he's been a good signing who wins more than his fair share of aerial balls.

13.) 1.Wanyama
2. Hooper
4. Ledley
5. Commons

2. Miku
3. Lassad
4. Juarez
5. Ibrahim

14.) Kevbhoy your 100% right he's been brilliant, people need to give him a break and it wasnt his decision to play in the juve game it was Lenny, Btw every leave Cha alone he was a solid right back, never got a chance due to Hinkel

15.) I have seen 2 posts that say about Forster. I hope you mean amongst the worst signings. The guy is a liability, let's take away a few decent saves last year in the CL against the amount of goals he has cost us by being a 6"7 coward. He can't take a high ball, he isn't commanding, his distribution is awful and the list goes on. It is no coincidence that every defensive partnership we have had has looked shaky, the common denominator is Forster. So to add my top 5. best, Ledley, Matthews, Commons, Stokes, Lustig and the worst, Murphy, Lassad, Lassad, Miku, FORSTER.

16.) Best SO FAR-Ledley, Hooper, Waynama, Commons, Matthews, sorry Mulgrew, Foster & Lustig. Worst- Murphy, Juarez, Broznek, Miku, Cha. Chris30

First time poster bhoys.

Do you think we will sign any of these free agents that have been banded about? Better question, do you think we need any freebies, bearing in mind that these guys are struggling to get a contract anywhere?

Personally I think the new signings should be given time to settle, only areas of concern are perhaps left back and for another striker now that Tony has left. Although Bang Bang Bangura's loan ends shortly. {Ed007's Note - Welcome to the site Kevy.}


1.) I think that we should give the new guys time to settle but feel that we do need cover in a couple of positions and think some of the guys that are available would help. Maybe on short term contracts that would suit the club and player to put them back in the window . First time poster. HH

2.) Our second tier lads who beat the Liverpool first 11 (previously undefeated in their full pre season) need a fair run out. Secondly, a Bhoy in the shirt is a Bhoy in the shirt and we need to get behind ALL the new bhoys and give them a warm welcome and our fullest support.
Hail hail.

3.) They'll only buy players if they're good enough and they're needed. wait and trust the board :)

4.) We are still short big Style in the Centre half position and left back. We still don't know if we have a player that will fill the void left by Hooper's departure.

5.) Realy don't see the point in signing anybody on a free if they can't play in Europe, the squad we have should walk the SPL backed up by youth, perfect chance to blood the youth. If we ain't gony bother ditch lennoxtown there's no need for it.

6.) "Wait and trust the board "somebody is having a laugh or has PL been posting on here too?? this is the same guy that has joined the SFA and yet can't wait to take Celtic to the EPL

7.) I'd take Bang Bang back into the squad in a heartbeat. All that fluster is over with. You have to noise up at the time, of course you do, but its what's best for the club that's important. He could score against AC or Barca for us, that's how to look at it.

8.) Cheers Ed

I think judging by the size of the squad injuries could give us a major headache and although I agree with sending Irvine and Watt out on loan to gain some experience, I was hoping to see something from these Bhoys this season. I really hope Balde can step up to the mark as we have been lacking a big target man since Sutton/Hartson (Killen and Murphy tried and failed horribly). From Youtube, Pukki looks excellent, but i'm sure I could collate videos of me playing 5's and make myself look like Zinedine Zidane!

Does Bangura come back from Loan in December? If so do you think he deserves another shot? Frankly his ssn interview before the match left a lot of questions about his feelings for the hoops.

9.) To be honest i'd take back bang bang also. I really want to see what he can bring to the team. I don't see broony having a problem with him an di think he'd be desperate to show us what he can do (if he wants to earn a place in team OR earn a permanent move to another team)
thought in the CL game he was ok. Not great but certainly looked to cause defenders problems. @jockdj83

10.) I think Bangura will leave in January or sooner if his contract is torn up.
He has been papped out on loan twice and is clearly not in the managers plans and I don't think he feels wanted by the club.


11.) I can't see Bangura coming back to the team at all. Remember how raging Lenny was when he decides to play against us, and I think the squad would have similar feelings towards him! Personally I think he disrespected the club in a way in which he can't be reinstated. I think he's ruined his Celtic career, if his footballing talent hadn't done that already .

So looks like the Turnbull deal is back on, what an absolute clusterf*ck of a transfer 😂 not even sure if I want him anymore, unless he can play right back?


1.) 20 Jun 2019 22:59:49
I take it all back. This is clearly the work of that new fella hammond. Smooth operator he is. But seriously. Maybe the lads come to his senses and decided to make a sensible decision. If he's on board welcome. It's messy but it'll do for a start.

2.) 20 Jun 2019 23:18:13
Or maybe the lad was on holiday and wanted to chill out and escape from the football side of things while he relaxed, and left his agent incharge and told him not to agree to anything untill he was back from his break, and the rest is just media speculation and Celtic frustration because he wasn't going to be rushed into a deal when he was on holiday.

3.) 20 Jun 2019 23:58:50
If you think that Lanark market is a holiday destination then so be it cause he was there on Saturday night.

4.) 20 Jun 2019 23:59:14
I like my maybe scenario better. Far less deep and meaningful.

5.) 20 Jun 2019 23:59:50

So deep profound you had to say it twice Phlip lol. HH.



08 May 2019 20:49:56
I’m not one to talk about general Social media babble, but one seems to be gathering momentum. has anyone (Ed) heard anything about Celtic giving up on Griff?


{Ed007's Note - Isn't he due to be in the squad for the Hearts game at Celtic Park?}

1.) 08 May 2019 21:33:57
Before every game against that lot there’s always something to try and unsettle the team. Hopefully there’s nothing in it and he makes the bench at the weekend lol.

2.) 08 May 2019 21:35:37
We have all had the same texts but 2 or 3 Saturdays ago a seen Griff at 8am driving out the training ground! He had obviously been training so I’m for 1 not believing it.

{Ed007's Note - Somebody asked about this the other day and I said he had spent a fair bit of time at Craig Tara over the weekend at a kids football event and now I see what the Club has said and LG has put out on social media I'd say there's some mischief making going on.}

3.) 08 May 2019 21:56:19
I don't believe a word of it.

4.) 08 May 2019 22:17:19
All this does is give Griffiths extra ammunition to come back stronger and better than ever. Which he will. Really can't wait for the day he takes to the field what a reception he is going to get. It will be some sight to see him put the ball in the back of the net.

5.) 08 May 2019 23:03:06
Ive seen people saying bin griff n get hooper back, deary me. The guy is fighting mental illness and people want a guy back who left at the first chance then realised he's not as good as he thought. Griff will run through walls for us when he's fit. can't wait to see him in the hoops again.

6.) 09 May 2019 00:56:39
What a way for him to come back with a bang by scoring against Hearts. Will do him world of good.

7.) 09 May 2019 08:34:12
Dealing with the run-of-the-mill Scottish Media's negativity and mischief making (especially before Sevco or important games) has been par for the course for generations; however, 'social media' opens up an even more malicious and tasteless route for lowlifes and nutters.

8.) 09 May 2019 10:37:49
Leigh shouldn't be anywhere near first team for remaining games he's not kicked a ball in seriousness for months. He should prepare for next season with a proper pre season Inc friendlies. In my opinion it would be unfair on players who have brought us within one win of treble only to be dropped from squad for sentiment towards leigh.

9.) 09 May 2019 11:37:25
If he is fit enough, he should play, if he isn't, he shouldn't play, nothing to do with sentiment.



25 Apr 2019 19:41:08
Having a quick look at our squad (I know this has been done to death, but wanted some opinion on what we do with the next window. Looking at the squad, it potentially needs some reasonably major surgery.

GK Bain
GK Gordon (Likely to leave)
GK De Vries (End of contract)

CB Simunovic
CB Ajer
CB Hendry (Should leave)
CB Compper (Should leave)
CB Benkovic (Back to Leicester)
CB Boyata (End of contract)

RB Ralston (Clearly not rated)
LB Izzy (End of contract)
RB Lustig (End of contract)
RB Toljan (Back to Dortmund)
RB Gamboa (End of contract)

CM Broony
CM McGregor
CAM Rogic
CAM Christie
CM Ntcham (Doesn’t look interested)
CM Bitton (Should leave)
CM Mulumbu (Should leave)
CM Kouassi (Should leave)
CM Allan (End of contract)

LW Hayes
LW Arzani
LW Morgan
LW Oko-flex
LW Sinclair (End of contract)

RW Forrest
RW Johnstone
RW Shved
RW Burke (Back to West Brom)

CF Eddie
CF Griff (Will he be the same player?
CF Bayo (Can he even play? )
CF Weah (Back to PSG)

In my opinion then, we need;
GK - a good backup for Scott Bain
CB x2 - First choice and backup.
LB - With Tierney’s injury worries, a solid backup.
RB - first choice (would keep Lustig as backup) .
CM - If Ntcham is sold.
CF - Weah? May need two though depending on Griff/ Bayo status.

We are painfully short at the back and overloaded on the wings, but if this season has taught us anything is that the backup players should be of good quality and hungry to make an impact.


{Ed007's Note - Sinclair has another year to run on his contract, he signed a 4-year deal when he joined.}

1.) 25 Apr 2019 20:46:54
The 2 yank full backs are still to come in plus adding a few here and there we should be ok.

2.) 25 Apr 2019 21:04:09
Where do I start? Your post is full of nonsense opinions most of which I disagree with. Major surgery my arse. There isn’t a team in Britain outside the EPL that would be disappointed to start next season with most of that squad. We’ll add a few here and there but no need for panic.

3.) 25 Apr 2019 21:11:39
Oko-flex? He isn't close to the first team!

4.) 25 Apr 2019 21:19:03
Every year we have some fans calling for massive rebuilds . We can't do that and we shouldn't . We must promote players from within . I know some people have their mind made up by watching a single match .
Scouting has become so easy, it isn't long ago since scouts had to travel all over Britain& further a field and concentrate on just the one player and watch every move and do that over several games . Now it seems all we have to do is watch a bit of a match and decide.

5.) 25 Apr 2019 21:19:53
I think Celtic can extend Sinclairs contract by one year, or they can release him at the end of this season, or is that rubbish?

{Ed007's Note - Rubbish. Google "Scott Sinclair signs for Celtic".}

6.) 25 Apr 2019 22:18:32
According to the sun Celtic have the option to trigger a one year extension to sinclairs contract. I just googled extension on sinclairs contract. Whether its correct or not I knew I read it and they have also mentioned it on the radio.

{Ed007's Note - F THE SUN!!! And F Radio Clyde!!





And to show how much rubbish The S*n writes....

scott sinclair new contract

7.) 25 Apr 2019 22:34:41
Wow! Watch what you say tonight, bhoys, Ed’s taking no prisoners.

8.) 25 Apr 2019 22:36:48
Ok ed 👍.

9.) 26 Apr 2019 09:29:39
Don't know why anyone has bitton down as leaving. Every manager that works with him loves him and thinks he's important to the squad.



20 Jan 2019 14:59:00
For a wee change of scenery, I was up at Pittodrie for the Aberdeen vs Stenny game yesterday. How Scott McKenna has a £10m price tag is baffling. Watching him up close, he isn't the quickest and was at fault for Stenny's goal. Personally I don't think that he is at the levels we require.


1.) 20 Jan 2019 16:12:51
Couldn't agree more. He is vastly over rated and turns like an oil tanker.

2.) 20 Jan 2019 16:49:19
He's fecking rotten.

3.) 20 Jan 2019 17:25:11
Funnily enough RAW I said that he should be nicknamed UHT for how long it takes him to turn.

He may be one of the best centre backs from outside Celtic, but personally he’s just not for me.

If we're even considering McKenna, our scouting system is all to feck.

6.) 20 Jan 2019 20:28:21
McKenna is no better than ajer simunovic or Hendry. I'd prefer to see ajer in cm. Think his power in the holding role would be an asset. Plus the additional height in cm might improve our woeful set pieces by providing another option.

7.) 20 Jan 2019 23:26:34
Rather pay the extra and get Benkovic permanent.

8.) 20 Jan 2019 23:28:24
Would rather pay extra and get Benkovic permanent.



01 Aug 2018 09:42:31
Hi Ed,

I know this will likely be paper nonsense, but given our financial position and Brendan's continued comments on "adding real quality" to the team, is Craig Dawson a realistic signing?

I can't see us forking out £15m - £20m on a single player personally and whilst I think he is a fine player, the over inflation within the premiership means we could likely get a player of similar quality for less money on the continent.


{Ed007's Note - We won't be signing Craig Dawson.}

1.) 01 Aug 2018 12:05:06
Tell me this Denayer rumour isn’t true ED? It’s the same old Shoite every bloody transfer window! Do our scouts actually look at any other centre half’s! The guy slated Scottish football when he left, and has done f*uck all since!

{Ed007's Note - I don't believe there's anything in it, the player doesn't rate Scottish football so why would he want to come back IF we did want him?}

2.) 01 Aug 2018 12:52:02
Ur probably rite mate, just shoite! Just makes me think if true what our scouts are up to! Surely to god they can narrow down a list of centre backs who wouldn’t cost the earth! Frustrating is an understatement mate. really is like Groundhog Day every transfer window! And u can tell a mile away that it’s pissing the manager off!

{Ed007's Note - I've said for months I don't expect a CB to come in unless one or more leave, how many CBs can one club have? I've really not seen anything to suggest that Rodgers is pissed off except supporters assumptions.

"The club have had a very clear structure of how they work. These last couple of years have been great years for us. I have got no reason not to ever believe that club don’t want that either. They have supported me extremely well since I have been up here. There is not a huge reforming that needs doing.

I can understand the supporters’ perspective.

The modern game now is very much about signings and lots of signings. But I think our supporters will probably be thankful that we have continuity. We’ve got a core that really connect to how we work but we have to bring in quality.

Now that’s then what goes over to the club, and then the club will look to then do their best, which I believe they are, their very best, to get the level of quality that we need in and that’s going to help us improve because that’s what’s important."

So do fans just want signings for signings sake, spending on fees etc, adding more to the wagebill and adding to the EIGHT players in the squad we have who can play as a CB?}

3.) 01 Aug 2018 12:59:02
Lh86 since leaving Celtic denayer has played champions league football and won the league and a cup in Turkey. So to say he's done nothing in wrong.
Ye he slated Scottish football but maybe he's grown up a bit since then. A lot of player realise their mistake after leaving Celtic.
I know we tried for him last window late on so could be some truth we are looking again.
Would he make the squad stronger?
For me yes because he'd be a better option than Compper.
Would he make first team better if everyone fit?
Am not so sure.

4.) 01 Aug 2018 13:33:08
U say there’s 8 players who can play centre half and how many do a club need. how many out of that lot would u trust in the C.L. groups? I’ve said before, Ajer is the only one that we can truly rely on and he’s the youngest out the lot! If a team continually loses lots of goals in a certain competition, in this case the C. L. then how can u stick with the same defence?

5.) 01 Aug 2018 14:57:10
It's unavoidable though. If we have our CBs and Rodgers and board thinks we have enough then fine.

Or when our defence is clearly not up to level, then something needs acted upon.

If we have too many CBs on the wage bill who aren't pulling their weight then that's the boards job to sort this.

We as fans shouldn't be expected to just sit back and be silent if the quality isn't up to standard.

Boyata, Compper, Simunovic, Hendry. Could punt them all and play Biton and the results this season won't change too much. That's how bad it's got.

6.) 01 Aug 2018 15:36:54
Lh86 see the teams that are taking goals of us they are also taking serious goals of everyone else including teams that have defences that are meant to be worth 100s of millions.
Twice last year Bayern took 5 off arsenal
Year before that
Barca took 6 off PSG
Psg scored 5 off barca
Real took 4 off juve
We could spent 50million on the defence and these results would still happen.
Or we could have effe ambrose at CB and beat Barca.

7.) 02 Aug 2018 09:44:10
All good points kev, and I get where your coming from. i just think us as a club never give ourselves the best opportunity to one try and qualify, and 2 try and give it as good a go as we could when we get there! And what about when a bang average zenit team took 3 off us and Astana put 4 past us? I’m not silly enough to sit and suggest we can compete with the big boys who spend ludicrous amounts of money year after year but I also refuse to believe that we can’t give a better showing when we play these guys! We’ve done it in the past with a back line of telfer McManus Caldwell and naylor for god sake! Lol.

8.) 02 Aug 2018 23:13:01
The defensive part of our team is far greater that the individual defenders, we need to buy a very good defender to improve our defence . We may also need to change the positioning of our midfielders.
Moving midfielders back to help defense, destroys our overall play as Celtic are better as an attacking team.

I was talking about Lawwell earlier, gets such a bad rap, but we got £5m more up front for KT then arsenal paid for £72m record signing Pepe. He knows how to squeeze every penny out of other clubs. I suppose in one respect we keep pushing the benchmark of our player values up. Despite the stupid money thrown about in England, its unrealistic to think KT should have been £35m when the previous Scottish record fee was £20m the season prior. Maybe in a couple of years we could see a player like Ajer going for £30m plus if we keep pushing for top dollar for our best assets.


{Ed007's Note - I said the other week that the way transfer fees are going we could possibly be looking at our first £50ish million player with Ajer in 2/3 years time. Who'd have (realistically) thunk we'd get £25m for KT 2 years ago?
I give Lawwell pelters when I think he deserves it but as a CEO he does a fantastic job and is one of the the toughest and most respected negotiators in the game.}

Same Kev, I read today that an ex sevconian player was spouting about that we have a bigger rebuilding job than them. seemingly us winning the league by 9 points was all but a dream. We need some quality additions to the squad, but we are still the champions and should be respected as such.
