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.}

1.) 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.}

2.) 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.}

3.) 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 :-)

4.) 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.

5.) 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.



21 Apr 2022 11:44:49
Just reading that should Bournemouth gain promotion in the coming weeks Celtic are due a bonus payment of 2M for Ryan Christie.

They're currently in 2nd place, 4 pts clear with 2 games in hand.

☘️ ? ☘️.

Brother Madden has been handed the job of preventing us from winning the Treble in the Semi final on Easter Sunday.

☘️ ☘️ ☘️.

1.) 06 Apr 2022 14:24:13
After Gollum doing a desent job too weird .

2.) 06 Apr 2022 17:54:27
The Madhun gets the Semi which will mean Brother Beaton will get the game at Parkhead.

3.) 06 Apr 2022 17:58:44
Even the authorities are hurting HH.

4.) 07 Apr 2022 09:24:20
Whatever way you look at it they have the second strongest 'squad' in the SPL with the likes of Beaton, Baby Dallas, Walsh, Madden, McLean, Robertson etc. With the helping-hand penalties and red cards in certain games. While turning 'blind eyes, ignoring fouls and allowing assaults on our players. They've been more of a threat than Sevco.



28 Feb 2022 12:34:04
Yuito Suzuki, another Japanese player we're apparently interested in.

Has anyone heard anything or is this just click bait?

☘️ ☘️ ☘️.

1.) 28 Feb 2022 14:29:38
Hopefully give it a rest with the Japanese market now haha .

2.) 28 Feb 2022 20:31:40
Good engine on him.

3.) 28 Feb 2022 20:48:38
Weird comment T1M.

4.) 01 Mar 2022 07:26:32
Just don't want a full team of Japanese players bolting to every World Cup leaving us high and dry .

5.) 01 Mar 2022 08:02:56
It's not really. The 3 January signings have? Marks over them. 1 not getting a game. Madeda runs about a lot but no much else. Hateta started off on fire. Looked like we had unearthed a gem. Lately he's contributed nothing. Would be hard to notice him on Sunday only Rogic played worse in midfield. Early days with the 3 of them.

6.) 01 Mar 2022 08:52:44
Auf they have just played a full J league season, no wonder they are showing signs of tiredness give them some leeway.

7.) 01 Mar 2022 09:56:20
Maedainparadise, I get that they could be tired after a full season but should the manager not see that and start thinking these guys need a break.

8.) 01 Mar 2022 12:23:56
I agree but we cannot moan about the players it's Anges decision to play them. If he picks them they have to play, they can't refuse. If Gucci gets back from injury with Kyogo we can rest a few but it's difficult as we don't have as strong a bench just now as we would like.

9.) 01 Mar 2022 12:56:19
Are bench would walk into any side minus rangers in the spfl, the Celtic team and management get a lot off praise when everything is going great, and rightly so but when things are getting tough they have to take criticism, the football has slowed down and feel we are making it easy for teams to just sit in, my opinion I would maybe move calmac further forward and try biton in there, need someone who can cut open defences and rogic is off the boil, I don't no the answer but something needs tweeking.



08 Feb 2022 20:57:21
A week into February and already talk of clubs in Engerland interested in Juranovic this coming summer - Leicester City named as one of them.

Hopefully nothing in it but when our bhoys are all doing so well it's not surprising they're getting noticed.

☘ ? ☘.

1.) 08 Feb 2022 21:29:33
Win that league and no one will be getting sold!

2.) 08 Feb 2022 21:44:28
The usual Scottish media trying to upset our best players.
It looks like it’s not only the Ibrox club who are in a panic.

3.) 08 Feb 2022 22:01:41
I agree Buzz, we are looking good so the usual lazy blue tinted reporters trying to unsettle our players. It won't work like it has done for some of their players who cleanrly believe they are worth £20 million.

4.) 09 Feb 2022 08:42:15
How does mentoring a team is after you when transfer window closed affect the player. Would it not encourage them to play well until window opens to gain move.

5.) 09 Feb 2022 11:48:43
Juranovic won't even bother he knows it's all just hype. He's just starting on his 4 year deal with us.
He's going nowhere just now.
Yes we wil sell him depending what is motivating him.
If he keeps up what he is doing I think he will break our players getting sold record.

6.) 09 Feb 2022 12:46:02
If we win the league we should be building on the squad we have. £40m in the bank or there about. If we sell a couple players and bring in 2-3 to improve the squad then it’s a win win. We need to be a CL team again.

7.) 09 Feb 2022 14:05:24
The good thing is Celtic can keep building on our already good squad because the majority of our players are on lengthy contracts.
There’s No rush to sell any of our best players.
More Good Times Ahead.

A great occasion at Celtic Park yesterday.

Ange, Rogic and Bitton were clearly emotional and understandably so - what a send off for two long serving players of the club.

Ange, as always, spoke well and made his intentions clear for next season.

For those, including my Bhoy, who joined the celebrations in Merchant City afterwards, I hope you had a great time and everyone returned home to their families safe and sound.

God bless Celtic.

Well done celtic Deserved. From a blue nose.

2.) 15 May 2022 10:51:16
What a man Ange is.
He has transformed our team from being a dis functional wreck last season into a title winning team this season, playing attacking attractive football.
He has made players that were already here better, coaches better and brought in new players who have made a difference.
I’m sure he has even made the ball Bhoys better. Have a look at how quickly they get the ball back into play when it goes out. They are all on the ball and Never Stop?
Well done Ange! ?
I, for one, am one happy Bhoy again?.

3.) 15 May 2022 14:48:09
Cheers for that waiting for a few others to be like yourself.

Ed 007 - you need to brush up on your spycraft mate - you let one slip over the border mate!

Thanks tommo54. Decency cost nothing.



14 May 2022 09:11:46
Ed and Bhoys,

I've managed to get tickets for today's game so I won't be on the Live Chat.

Have a great Trophy Day ? one and all.

God bless you all and God bless Celtic.

The Ange revolution started last summer and when this window opens the evolution of the team will continue.

We should all be excited, this could be the start of something very special Bhoys and Ghirls.

In Ange We Trust.

I'd never heard of Micky Van De Ven brumbhoy but he could be an option.

Out of the picture at Wolfsburg, 6'3" and he has the Holy Grail for any CB - left footed ?.

Still only 21yrs old.

I read that one also Mally.

Only cost Man. City a little over 600K, went on loan to Shalke but apparently despite playing 30+ games they don't like the 5.5M Euro price tag ?.

At 6'3 he's got size and is good with the ball at his feet.

Straight swap for Julien?

I'm shocked that James Forrest has been offered a contract extension ? but not surprised he's signed it.

Money for old and ineffective rope.

Agree with you on Taylor OAB2, he's really grown as a player this season under Ange.

Having said that, I feel we need better at LB than Taylor and as good as they've been this season both Ralston and Taylor are back up at CP and with the players we have there's no shame in that.

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.

I'd agree brumbhoy hence my point.

If (God forbid) Hart gets injured, we've got a problem and Bain ain't going to cut it between the sticks.

We should also have plenty for 4/ 5 outfield players + a GK considering the players we need to shift are worth cash and will free up a lot I wages.

I'd hope that both Barkas and Hazzard go this summer.

Personally, I don't believe (and never have) that Bain is good enough to get a shirt at Celtic therfore if he left, that for me, would be ideal.

Again, I think we should be aiming higher than Siegrist, far higher, as if a player was brought in it should be to take over from Joe in the next couple of years.

Young Tobi should be promoted to No.3 GK. (IMO)

100% Andy on the clearout with at least 4/ 5 first team ready (not bench warmers for 80% of the season) players to come in.

I agree with your thinking Ken but believe in order to progress both domestically and in Europe, we need 4 or 5 first team ready players as well as signing Jota and CCV.

LB/ CDM/ CB/ Striker/ Winger.

We also have a lot of deadwood to move out the door.
