Barkas deal to be announced tomorrow apparently.




23 Jul 2020 09:25:59
Roma goalkeeper now being looked at started all 5 games if Sweden world Cup campaign. I don't watch football other than celtic so I don't know if he is any good or not but he is 30yrs old and went out on loan to some other Italian team from what I have read.


1.) 23 Jul 2020 11:02:46
I know NL must have thought Forster would be happy to come back after such a great season, but the situation has left us on the back foot, with a distinct urgency and a pressure to get this position sorted.
Bain, may be seen as competent enough domestically, but he does not instill any confidence in me or the defense against decent opponents.
Hopefully, we will unveil a top class goalie in the coming days?

2.) 23 Jul 2020 12:13:24
The thing is never mind Bain it’s what’s there after Bain we are an injured Bain away from youngsters being used that’s the scary thing.

3.) 23 Jul 2020 15:23:06
Robin Olsen on loan at Cagliari from Roma, would be a good signing .

4.) 23 Jul 2020 16:13:04
Heard he’s a good keeper with great attitude and good reflexes but his agent is a corn on the cob.

5.) 24 Jul 2020 17:31:11
No more scary than a fit Bain for me Rich. We've got some fantastic youngsters so maybe one of the keepers is a bumper.



14 Jul 2020 19:51:31
Seen online that Eddy might be ready to sign a new 5yr deal don't know if there is any truth in it though but it would be amazing if it was true.


1.) 14 Jul 2020 21:28:31
christie in talks as well.

2.) 14 Jul 2020 21:34:49
Does that mean he is getting transferred.

3.) 14 Jul 2020 21:46:53
Can't see a five year deal but under the current climate tying down deals like that would be just as good as a major signing.

4.) 14 Jul 2020 22:34:09
If its a 5 year deal there will be many clauses in it. Win win for both parties Eddy gets a big pay hike and we're guaranteed big bucks when he goes.

5.) 15 Jul 2020 09:38:42
May sign a 5 year deal, but how much of that is just to bolster the asking price when we sell him.

6.) 16 Jul 2020 10:14:51
I know he will be sold soon enough I just want him here for the 10 and maybe he wants that too.



26 Aug 2019 15:52:56
Just seen something about lennon saying we might get two in today.


1.) 26 Aug 2019 16:39:41
He’s been saying that for weeks, 😂 heard juanmatt from Watford?

2.) 26 Aug 2019 16:44:43
We might not anaw.

3.) 26 Aug 2019 18:38:37
Better get a move on then Marco not long left of today! Lol. im sure they’ll be in first thing in the morning 🤦🏻‍♂️😆😆.

4.) 26 Aug 2019 18:42:22
Meling playing morra or Wednesday does anyone know?

5.) 26 Aug 2019 19:00:51
Tuesday Rich.

6.) 26 Aug 2019 19:10:42
So he plays Tuesday for Rosenborg and Thursday for us ha ha ha.

7.) 26 Aug 2019 20:01:25
Not sure IF we qualify and IF we bring in Meling would he be able to play in the group stages for us?

8.) 26 Aug 2019 20:22:23
Pretty sure he would be fine to play in Europa lads.

9.) 27 Aug 2019 06:18:46
Don’t know why he bothers to say this sort of stuff, another day goes by. We all know it will be a couple of loan signings on the last day. Usual guff, we tried our best just couldn’t get them over the line. It takes us an eternity to sign players, yet we are supposed to get two in on one day. We need to replace players we let go, we have millions sitting in the bank. Just go spend it on some quality to strengthen the side. 😡.

10.) 27 Aug 2019 08:22:05
I think this morning is a perfect example of the press having no idea on what we are doing in this window or who our targets are. They have in one story that we aren’t wanting to pay 3 million for Taylor so are now after keeping and on another we aren’t wanting merging we are after Taylor.

11.) 27 Aug 2019 09:10:55
Lennon talks mince I won't be falling for his crap again. Same old celtic. Lennon should keep his mouth shut until he has something concrete to tell us.



26 Jul 2019 01:09:38
Dafabet are these rumours true about widmer and the other rvs.


1.) 26 Jul 2019 08:07:03
No more RVs we've already had enough of players who are towing caravans.

Ed. Do you think gutman and perez will ever get thier work permits. Or will we end up selling them.


{Ed007's Note - I can't see either getting a work permit and I think it's more likely they will eventually be freed.}

1.) 30 Jul 2020 11:08:27
Are the work permit issues down to a lack of personal progression Ed? Or were they maybe just stupid signings from the off?

{Ed007's Note - They were definitely strange signings, Kev as it was obvious they wouldn't get work permits and it looks like they weren't up to the standards to apply for one under the "exceptional talent" route like we had to do with Wanyama.}

2.) 30 Jul 2020 12:35:25
Can you explain something please Ed? Does a work permit mean that they can't play football? I'm assuming they're being paid by Celtic so must have some sort of work permit?

{Ed007's Note - Forgetting the complexities of Brexit the laws are basically if you aren't from an EU country you need a visa/work permit to do any job in the UK. Their contract with Celtic is just the same as anyone working abroad who is employed by UK company.}

3.) 30 Jul 2020 16:45:41
It's a pity as gutman looked decent last pre season. can we not now swap them for the other american were touted with.

{Ed007's Note - I doubt it.}

4.) 30 Jul 2020 20:44:48
I think it’s too simple and easy to say that we should loan out a number of players . It has been the making of a few and the ruination of a few also . But look at E Henderson, he hasn’t improved any and if anything looks surprised and nervous when ball comes near .
Loaning out a play is full of difficulties, it can be hard to know whether manager of club he goes to, wants to play him, if he has a youngster of his own improving and both competing for one position.



30 Jul 2020 09:16:24
Ed do you think we will sign a CB I personally think we have enough coverage thier. Big elhamed can play thier if needed.


{Ed007's Note - I think we will sign another CB especially if Lennon is going to regularly use 3-5-2. Can we trust Elhamed to stay fit?}

1.) 30 Jul 2020 12:37:03
Definitely need another CB. I don't know much about the young guys in the squad but an injury to Jullien or Ajer would be worrying. I like Bitton but he's not as good as either of them imo.

2.) 30 Jul 2020 12:37:29
Think we could do with a left footed CB.

3.) 30 Jul 2020 16:14:15
I think we missed a trick with veltman that Brighton just signed from Ajax . Only went for 900 grand, has played centre back and left back for Ajax, I seem to remember we were linked with him a few seasons ago.



28 Jul 2020 15:52:33
My old man used to say any striker worth there salt could get 20 goals a season with celtic due to the chances we make. Maybe Bayo just can't handle being at a big club.


1.) 28 Jul 2020 16:59:29
Well, I would say any striker worth his salt, won't get any goals if he is not being played.



28 Jul 2020 15:46:28
Any names popping up regarding a new centre half.


1.) 28 Jul 2020 16:28:50
I hope we can dig up some one like a Paul Elliott soon.

2.) 28 Jul 2020 18:24:19
Good shout Tony you’re not asking much though asking for the best centre half I’ve seen at Celtic Park in my lifetime other than Van Dyke! Boruc, McGrain, Elliot, Van Dyke and KT wouldn’t be a bad benchmark eh?

3.) 28 Jul 2020 19:44:47
Elliot was great but I liked big Johan. Would also have tom boyd over kt. No doubt kt will be better but based on their time at celtic boyd gets my vote.

4.) 28 Jul 2020 20:03:13
KT loses massive points for his time at the club and is no Celtic great for me. Tommy Boyd and Johan are great shouts and left us with better memories. I was speaking purely on ability and potential. Good points though 👍☘️.

5.) 28 Jul 2020 21:28:18
Paul Elliot 🙇‍♀️.

6.) 28 Jul 2020 22:00:22
Loved big Elliot. that's how I want a defender to play, big stubbsie is up there too, a centre half that could spray 40 yard diagonal passes into the path of a running winger. Top class the pair of them.

7.) 28 Jul 2020 22:19:00
big elliot was better than Mjällby by a good bit.

8.) 28 Jul 2020 23:58:01
I don't understand why we haven't tapped into the Dutch market again. I remember when we all realised big virgil was a player, some Dutch coach was interviewed and said that there was plenty more like him if not better! . Something to do with the way the Dutch are coached from a young age in reading the game etc.

9.) 29 Jul 2020 00:20:28
Far better kev but big johan was immense.

10.) 29 Jul 2020 00:21:25
Hmmm I wonder who I'd pick?

11.) 29 Jul 2020 02:06:55
Maybe worth getting a dutch coach in briggs? Wonder what jansen is up to? Or hiddink.



05 Apr 2020 09:58:23
Just want to say I hope everyone stays safe and stay at home just seen the pics of the English in Richmond Park how stupid are these people do they know they are putting themselves and there families and everyone at risk or do they just not care.

Think it's time we moved on. I don't think the deal was as far along as the media would like us to believe.

Just read a bit that said some club have asked ajeti to put the transfer on hold till they can come up with a package. If that's true then we should just tell him to forget it and move on.

It would depend on what the player wants. Ie. Does he want massive wages or does he want to play in Europe does he want to win cups and leagues does he want to be part of a team that makes history by winning 10 in a row. So it depends on what the player wants other than money.

So what happens if there is a second wave of the virus and we are clear at the top of the league. Will the SPFL award us 10 in a row or will there be another uproar.

Most of the big clubs usually only play thier youth teams in the early rounds.

It's the FA cup a lot if clubs down their don't take that competition seriously.

I think back in the day we never got new tops released every year. It was usually ever 3 years but money has overtaken the game. If I remember correctly it was every 3 years for new tops.

Yes although I think bain should be given his chance.
