According to reports in the Bundesliga Celtic are interested in signing Hamburg CB Papadopolous. Not sure how legit this is as it says he's 28 whereas on Wikipedia it says he was born in 1992.

1.) 14 Mar 2018 21:38:20
Does he not run the laundry in Eastenders?

2.) 15 Mar 2018 01:00:29
Sounds a bit Greek.



07 Mar 2018 12:49:49
Celtic has supposedly enquired about Red Star Belgrade CB Vujadin Savic valued at Ā£1.5m and also interested in Nick Powell from Wigan too.



15 Jan 2018 23:30:33
Stuart Armstrong out until late February after undergoing a hernia operation.

1.) 15 Jan 2018 23:47:24
If that's true he's going nowhere this month then!

2.) 16 Jan 2018 12:40:40
What's to dislike about this? Clearly not a rumour it's a fact!

3.) 16 Jan 2018 13:16:11
Just read that myself.
(all those extra swimming lessons for his wee mate down the pool has done him in)
He is going no where indeed. Adds another hilarious twist to the false tabloid 10m patter.
Might explain a few things. Used sparingly, off pace and looking uninterested? Playing through pain. I've not done much of it this season on here but I've moaned a bit about his displays. I'll humbly retract, my only resentment lays at the medical teams door if he was made to play till the point the the op was needed. He is our player and if he should of went under the knife in November it should of happened then.
Step up kouassi. Can't see that loan deal happening now.
That injury has cancelled out a signing and definetly the opportunity for top dollar for a departure.

Being linked to Chancel Mbemba from Newcastle.

1.) 11 Jan 2018 08:35:13
BR has already rubbished claims thankfully as he's barking lol.

2.) 11 Jan 2018 09:13:06
I actually think he's a cracking player. He was a regular at anderlecht and is a belgium international, he's certainly better than what we have.

3.) 11 Jan 2018 11:43:29
He was very decent at Anderlecht. Mind him being best CB signing in Fifa lol and seen a couple of games where he stood out which obv led to Newcastle signing him. but has been terrible for Newcastle and is very small for a CB as well so not too upset that it seems we have no interest.

Would much rather go for the Bulgarian mentioned on the Banter page, although that's the only place I've seen of any Celtic interest.

4.) 11 Jan 2018 12:14:33
was a standout last season in efl, which imo is a step up from our league, would be a great signing.

5.) 11 Jan 2018 12:40:47
Mates a Newcastle fan and he uses him. Says he's strong and quick and he'd be gutted if he was to leave.

6.) 11 Jan 2018 12:52:17
You don't necessarily need to be 6ft to be a cb, look at puyol for example, he was even smaller than mbemba.

7.) 11 Jan 2018 20:30:15
Fair play I've not seen a lot of Newcastle this season so the lad must of massively improved.

8.) 12 Jan 2018 00:03:03
Think he says he has only played about 8 games and was meant to say rates him not uses him lol. Seeing reports saying a swap with Simunovic would suit both parties as Rafa wanted him last season. Never really heard of the guy myself is anyone else clued up on it he is he better than the likes of Coetzee or Duverne?



08 Jan 2018 18:32:17
Hi ED,

Have you heard anything about Joe Allen rumours?

{Ed007's Note - There aren't any rumours. Some bookies is just playing the market for an earner by saying we're favourites to sign him. As far as I know he's not even available from Stoke.}

1.) 08 Jan 2018 22:19:51
That's good news then. Not really worth the money he will cost.

{Ed007's Note - I think Allen is going to be linked with us every window from now on.}

2.) 08 Jan 2018 22:37:05
He could be the new Robbie Keane rumour.

{Ed007's Note - At least he eventually turned up! What about Shay Given?}

3.) 09 Jan 2018 12:31:46
Could still do a better job than Gordon even at his age. Now you've mentioned it no doubt someone will post asking about rumours of us signing Given lol.

{Ed007's Note - 770 appearances (including internationals) and not one single goal to his name? Nah not for me ;)

4.) 09 Jan 2018 12:55:21
Hes way out our price range anyway ed.

{Ed007's Note - Allen? Definitely mate and another perfect example of an average footballer getting paid money that doesn't truly reflect his limited ability.}

5.) 09 Jan 2018 22:27:57
I admire Peter and now Brendan for not been sucked into the silly games played by agents and fan pressure and usually control our purchasers . It can often be difficult enough to get a reasonably good player to continue and improve his form when joining a new club .
I am still disappointed that fan power pushed Johannson away from Celtic

We signed Eboue who is a very good player, but we cannot get his form and ability on the pitch . That's why I think in an ideal world we would bring our own through from academie.

Hi Ed, Just been reading about Simunovics international dilemma what's your views on it? Bit harsh on the young guy imo considering he hasn't even played for Bosnia. But in youth you can chop and change when you feel like it like Karamokos situation.

{Ed007's Note - I've not really got an opinion on it although I did like the part where he told them he wanted to concentrate on playing for Celtic, if only more of our players would do the same.}

1.) 18 Mar 2018 17:53:50
Do you think the KT injury is legit or is that more of a tactical way of getting him out of international duties?

{Ed007's Note - I did think of that myself.}



06 Mar 2018 13:04:21
Confirmed that it is Collum to ref Sundays game with Dallas as 4th official! Trying their best to keep this title race alive!

1.) 06 Mar 2018 14:02:32
What title race? Don't believe what the media tell u.

2.) 06 Mar 2018 14:44:16
I actually prefer Collum to guys like beaton Madden or Dallas
Collum is just a poor ref. He's not a cheat.
The other 3 don't even try to hide what they do.

3.) 06 Mar 2018 14:47:17

4.) 06 Mar 2018 14:52:39
It makes no difference what establishment, honest mistake merchant we get as long as the team do the business.
Although things may change when we get VAR in Scotland.
(Vatican Assisted Referee) ha ha ha.

5.) 06 Mar 2018 14:54:46
When was the last time there was a decent referee in Scotland. Will need an answer from you oldies on this one i'm only 39 šŸ˜.

6.) 06 Mar 2018 16:23:33
Stan Petrov 19 Iā€™m 69 and remember a good referee called Hugh Phillips, then he gave Celtic two penalties in the 1965-66 league cup final against rangers and that was the end of his career. Maybe it had something to do that he was one of our own some things never change . oldkilly.

7.) 06 Mar 2018 16:57:38
Cheers oldkilly, I'm not surprised by that. Good referees in Scotland are few and far between. Not just with ourselves there has been incidents with other clubs recently they are very poor, they look a level below amateur.

8.) 06 Mar 2018 17:37:58
If you think these guys are bad wait until Craig Napier gets here.

He is one of the young refs coming through just now.

9.) 06 Mar 2018 18:46:50
head soup taker.

10.) 06 Mar 2018 18:50:25
Kev83, I doubt if you could describe Collum as an incompetent referee not a biased ref . Hold your assessment until after Sunday's game .
We will all be sitting near someone who claims to be a Celtic fan but if there is any period of the game we are not over powering them completely, our so called fans will take it out on whatever Celtic player they have taken a dislike too. At a time like this we should politely ask the loud mouths to leave off our players and get at the referee if he is giving decisions against us.

11.) 06 Mar 2018 22:37:08
Agree he isn't biased he is literally hopeless and a bit card happy. Anyone fast tracked through by Hugh can't be trusted though. As always I'm just hoping for a clean referees performance all round amd let the better team on the day win. us. There's no room for passengers in this fixture Chris.

12.) 07 Mar 2018 08:05:17
Old man chris. I have watch Collum for years now and have actually met him on several occasions. The guy isn't a cheat in my opinion he's just end rotten ref.

13.) 08 Mar 2018 01:03:19
Kev83 .
I was always advised to be careful of the company I kept .
I know thank my dead parents for advising me to steer clear of cheats and con men, they have a skill in taking people in who then trust them no matter what .
Gullible Kev83 . How did W Collum use the eyes in the back of his head to give a penalty against Celtic . Had Specsavers new trial package available and why did they not mass produce these back of the head eves.



03 Mar 2018 13:01:29
Has John Beaton been instructed to man mark Ntcham? That's 3 times he's got in his way already!



25 Feb 2018 18:53:40
So McInnes reckons our 2nd goal was a moment of madness from them. Nothing to do with the fact it was a really well crafted counter attack and finish. And apart from the goals we didn't have any other chances? Total discredit to Woodman who kept them in it as well as the woodwork too! That guy is so bitter.

1.) 25 Feb 2018 19:16:35
McInnes decided to commit men forward once we got Lustig sent off. When you do that you always run the risk of a quick counter.

If he did not want to run that risk he should not have committed so many men forward. The blame lies at his door, so he should stop trying to deflect away from his own inadequacies.

2.) 25 Feb 2018 20:17:59
0-1 down and 11v10 if it was madness then I'm not sure what his gameplan was. Wasn't he wanting his team to commit players forward to try get back into the game? Or was he just hoping one of the many freekicks Madden gave then would allow them to launch it in the box and hope a goal will come of it? Just seems to have excuses for his own failings and that his team bottle the big games.



15 Feb 2018 22:03:25
Proud of that performance. Individually so many players back to their best as well as Brendan and his gameplan. Hope big Kouassi has silenced his critics on here too! The only criticism is that we only scored the one. Well done bhoys! HH.

1.) 15 Feb 2018 22:16:23
I still don't think we'll go through but tonight was a performance focused on credibility and I reckon we should be proud of our Bhoys. HH.

2.) 15 Feb 2018 22:24:34
Oh get lost šŸ˜‚ how can you still be negative after that performance.

3.) 15 Feb 2018 22:41:08
I'm not negative, I'm proud of our Bhoys tonight and I haven't said anything to criticise our performance. It's half time, I don't think we'll go through, but I hope I'm wrong. HH.

4.) 15 Feb 2018 23:10:52
Be tougher over there but hopefully a confidence boost and what the team needed to get back to last seasons form. Maybe a few back from injury can play a part too. Bold to leave Sinky out completely too. Could've been a whole lot better as they should've had 2 red cards.

{Ed007's Note - I'm confident of scoring over there and if we draw first blood Zenit look like they could fall apart and also lose their discipline.}

5.) 16 Feb 2018 00:07:20
Yes Ed, we have a chance and that's more than many of us would have believed before tonight. HAIL HAIL to the Super Celtic! HH.

{Ed007's Note - That result - and more so the actual performance - should hopefully reinvigorate the team/squad AND the fans. There's going to be blips and spells when we're struggling but we've got a young squad that can only get better.
Zenit were the highest scoring team in the EL and we kept them out with Lustig who's supposedly finished, Jozo who's supposedly a bombscare and Ajer who supposedly will never be a CB as our defence oh and a 37-year-old GK who hasn't kicked a ball in anger for eons!
All joking aside I thought DDVs distibution was immense tonight and it shows the difference having a 'keeper that can consistently find a man with his ouu ball.}

What's the formation Ed? McGregor LWB in a 3-5-2?

{Ed007's Note - I had it up as a 3-4-2-1 mate with McGregor as LWB but on the official site it's down as a 4-2-3-1 with McGregor playing at LB.}

Good lineup. Hopefully with Comppers experience in there we will get the best out of Ajer and Jozo.

I'd like is to buy Bain as our number 2 and get shot of both Gordon and De Vries and get another keeper too and try loan out Hazard. I hope there has been a lot of cash out by for a spending spree as the squad clearly needs investing in. If all of the mentioned above was sold on that would generate around 30 odd million. Add VVD cash and CL cash and there plenty there to overhaul the squad. There's a few that don't want to be here, a few not good enough to be here and a few that are injured far too often. With that cash surely we can afford a new GK, CB, RB, CM and ST. If the board aren't willing to back BR then why should he stay?

Man Utd fan in work slagging off La Liga saying how poor it is. Playing teams like Girona and Getafe. Then they get knocked out and totally outplayed over the 180 minutes by Sevilla who have lost more games than them two teams and only 2 points ahead of Girona in the league!
