We have been linked with Milan van Ewijk a Right Back for Heerenven in the Eredivise. Stats look decent, creativity lacking, dribbling looks great and amazing pressing stats. Could see him come in to replace Ralston maybe? €5.5m quoted.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 May 2022 02:45:02
I don't think Ralston needs replaced. We're sorted for the RB position imo.

12 May 2022 08:34:37
I think he’s been great but positions should never be secure improvement should be our goal now.

12 May 2022 10:37:20
So where does jj go then? Kle.

12 May 2022 16:11:04
JJ n Milan probably fight it out for a starting spot. Competition is key in Anges squad. People need to realise that.

11 May 2022 14:04:57
Goodn news on the game tonight that hammer thrower butcher not available.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 May 2022 18:30:03
Mohanad Jeahze to Celtic, left back, £2million, done deal, business starting early.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 May 2022 20:10:06
Seen this mate seems its all but done.

10 May 2022 23:02:10
We definitely need to add some steel to our midfield and let CM move further forward.

11 May 2022 04:20:13
A CB is a must for me!

11 May 2022 06:42:56
To improve and for cover, I'd say we require;-

* LB
* CB
* CM (Broony type player)
* 3rd Striker
* Winger
(Unless we've got players coming through but I don't follow the youth set up) .

Still a good few we need to exit inc;-

* Barkas
* Hazzard
* Bolingoli
* Ajeti
* Johnstone/ Forrest?
* Julien

Bitton also looks like he's away in the summer and I don't see any point in McCarthy sitting on the bench for another 3 years.

☘️ ? ☘️.

11 May 2022 08:34:09
Put this up last week. Same boy told me CCV will be a Celtic player next season. Wants a cracking at CL.

11 May 2022 08:59:49
He's a must signing for me Auf, how he didn't pick up a POTY award - I'm not sure ?.

☘️ ? ☘️.

11 May 2022 09:17:08
report saying newcastle to hi-jack ccv deal.

11 May 2022 13:44:02
Not sure why we want to push calmac further forward. The boy won poty in holding role. Agree we need a bit of dig in there for certain games but I think when we push calmac up after 65 mins when we make subs and bring Bitton on, we seem to lose control. I agree we need a tough tackler option for certain games.

{Ed007's Note - McGregor might have won POTY but he will never be good enough defensively to play as a CDM. If we continue with him there then we can expect more struggles when we come up against teams who outmuscle & outfight our midfield.
Bitton can't play the role Ange wants in a CDM and neither can McGregor - Bitton doesn't have the vision/ability/mobility and McGregor doesn't have the physicality side of the game and can't tackle for toffee.}

11 May 2022 13:51:18

if CCV is happy to sign for Celtic then it makes no difference whether Newcastle or any other team are interested, as we've already agreed a price when the loan deal was signed.

☘️ ? ☘️.

11 May 2022 15:26:16
Thought calmac played his best football for us under the rat. Who played him further forward, he a class wee player that can adapt. He's no LB though.

11 May 2022 15:40:27
you are of course correct.

11 May 2022 21:34:54
Bosun Lawal will be involved heavily next year. Maybe deployed as CDM or CB.

09 May 2022 10:59:17
Maeda confirms he's signing at end of season.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 May 2022 11:58:01
Did we ever get to the bottom of exactly why it was a loan with an obligation to buy? Deferring the fee payments until the summer is all I can think of but how don't see how that would benefit Yokohama.

09 May 2022 15:35:07
It was actually meadea decision Kev, this type of transfer in Japan are very common when a player moves abroad. Meadea wanted to see if his family and himself could settle in Glasgow. Meadea's family have been settling in Glasgow for the last 3mths and have settled in well. He has a new born baby aswel. So that's why he came out recently and said he will be signing permanently last week because he's family is now settled. Meadea actually played in in a lower Portugal league and didn't settle when he was younger and wanted things right this time.

09 May 2022 16:49:09
Perfectly understandable given the differences in language, culture etc

He's proved himself to be an asset to the team and like so many players under Ange, will only improve.

☘️ ? ☘️.

09 May 2022 17:45:50
I never realised that Paul, it's actually a very sensible way of doing it.

09 May 2022 18:51:15
Ya Kev, I've read it from a few Japanese journalists who said it quite common in Japan.

09 May 2022 22:24:58
CP, our very own international football correspondent ?

☘️ ? ☘️.

10 May 2022 20:57:14
He has really impressed the most consistent out the three new bhoys give his all well done ange and maeda.

Put on a good show bhoys av got a journey tonight so al listen while a drive ??.

{Ed007's Note - ??

08 May 2022 14:53:22
Ed, I've just read an article that states Nir Bitton wants to leave Celtic this summer, apparently the story broke on Friday in a Manchester Jewish paper?

Have you heard anything about this/ any thoughts?

☘️ ? ☘️.

{Ed007's Note - I've said on the pod for a while that I thought Bitton would leave this summer. I think it's a good move for all involved.}

Agree0 Disagree0

08 May 2022 15:35:46
I've not listened to the Podcasts for a while Ed (extra homework for Pedro) .

It's another first team squad position for Ange to consider but based on his first two transfer windows I've got faith in his ability to identify the right players for the role.

☘️ ? ☘️.

{Ed007's Note - We've got Gucci in there and Bosun Lawel looks like he'll be promoted next season - will McCarthy still be here and push for a place next season? - and as you say Ange and Mark Lawwell might have someone else in mind.}

08 May 2022 18:42:45
Ed, I don’t see how we can get rid of guys like McCarthy as much as he is miles down the pecking order we’re so shy of homegrown and association trained players for the CL we may need them around for another season or two.

{Ed007's Note - Good point and another reason to be looking at Lewis Ferguson, T.}

09 May 2022 00:00:20
100% ed. With Bitton gone, going Lewis ferguson is the perfect replacement and is a better player who would offer a lot more than Bitton and allow mcgregor to play further forward where he is much more affective while also adding a bit of muscle to the midfield which we have been lacking.

{Ed007's Note - Celtic, like any top team Ter should be looking to sign the best young talent in the league and especially when we know he can do the exact job we need here and now - Gucci and Ferguson competing for the DCM role with Bosun Lawel as back up and hopefully a fit Jimmy Mac in the mix in the Bitton role of experienced squad player
I'm sure Ange and Son of Pedro will have the ideal player lined up :-)

09 May 2022 01:35:18
Big Bitton can play cb too so I think it will be a big loss for a player who does whatever job he is told to to do. I like Big Bitton not so much his rashness to get booked or sent off but he knows what it is to play for our great club.

09 May 2022 11:19:16
Ed, unfortunately James McCarthy just will not cut it at Celtic. Give him a wee pay off and let him go and enjoy his football for a couple of years elsewhere. Good luck to the lad. HH.

07 May 2022 18:41:53
Bitton away at end of season?

{Ed007's Note - I've been saying for a while that I could see that happening, Kev. It;s a bit of a stick or twist for Celtic with him going into the last year of his deal - do we still only offer over 30s a years extension? - and will Bitton himself be happy with that at his age and only being a bit part player?
He had the chance to return to Israel last summer but decided to stay, maybe now is the ideal time for him and his family to return home and start playing every week.}

Agree0 Disagree0

08 May 2022 10:37:47
If he leaves it will be with a huge thanks from me as he has been a great servant and we then need to find a replacement with his quality.

08 May 2022 07:48:50
Kind of coin you think we will get for Bitton. CCV celtic man next season is the word on the street.

{Ed007's Note - I'd just let Bitton leave on a free as a thank you for his service.}

08 May 2022 11:18:27
You'll struggle to find a more selfless player and that's why his team mates have so much love and respect for him. He's so often forced to be a square peg in a round hole and it gets him stick from the fans but he's the ultimate team player. All that being said, I think we probably could improve on him in the summer window.

{Ed007's Note - ?

08 May 2022 11:31:34
Being reported in the Jewish Telegraph and his Instagram seems to back it up.

08 May 2022 14:29:17
Free he will walk out Celtic a millionaire. He didn't do it for nothing. Would you let Calmac leave for nothing. Would be looking for 1/ 2 million for him.

{Ed007's Note - Calmac is 28-years old, Celtic captain and one of the best Scottish midfielders of his generation. If Celtic sell Bitton he will be due any money due on his contract plus 5% of any fee we receive
He could always just sit and see out his contract and get around a million in wages for doing nothing then leave on a free next summer along with the loyalty bonus for seeing out his contract.
Probably when you work out the finances of all the options it'll be a few hundred thousand £ of a difference if we got £1 million for him.}

08 May 2022 15:07:11
You have to give a player what he's owed In a contract. That can't be right, so we had to give Tierney 4yrs money and they walk into a multi million pound contract.

{Ed007's Note - If a player doesn't ask for a transfer they are due a percentage of what they're outstanding contract is worth plus 5% of the fee the selling club receive. KT asked to leave in the terms of transfers.}

08 May 2022 15:08:46
A loyalty bonus for running down their contracts. Jesus some gig they are on.

{Ed007's Note - These days players have a loyalty bonus tied to the end of their contract - remember Henrik and the board pulled a flanker with his? Transfers are not as black and white as a lot fans think and that's why sometimes it's easier just to do a deal for them to leave for free.
It would cost Celtic well over £1 million if Bitton decided to stay and leave on a free next year - and to be honest I don't think he is part of even Ange's short term plans. We have Gucci to play in there and it looks like Bosun Lawal will be promoted to the first team squad for next season.
I don't know if Celtic will be looking for a fee for Bitton, all I'm saying is I wouldn't be surprised if they aren't.}

08 May 2022 17:17:01
Cheers Ed if only I had talent.

{Ed007's Note - ?

08 May 2022 23:04:40
That's big news to me Ed. You'd think if a player agrees to the move then they shouldn't really be entitled to any remaining wages as they're essentially an equal partner in ending the contract.

{Ed007's Note - If you hand in your notice you're still entitled to lie time, holidays due and contracted bonuses etc If you get paid off you're due redundancy, holidays etc etc That's maybe the best way to look at it.... Feck knows lol


09 May 2022 11:59:34
Fair enough. Just another reason on the ever-growing list of why we should have stuck in and been football players lol.
