Seen a rumour linking Fabricio Diaz of Liverpool Montevideo to Celtic.

18 year old and Captains the Uruguay u21 National team, had been called up to the senior National team but not yet capped.

Interesting one, he looks the part on YouTube, and definitely a player we could enhance and make money on, them Uruguayans are grafters on the pitch!

Wonder why we are getting linked with South Americans lately, I thought work permits were harder to obtain, you know anything about this Ed?


{Ed007's Note - It's easier to get work permits for South Americans with the new system post Brexit mate.



24 Jul 2021 11:24:48
See Hjelde and Andersen wanted by Leeds, I hope this doesn't happen these players have potential, hopefully Ange can persuade them there is a path to the first team 🤞.


1.) 24 Jul 2021 11:29:43
Who's Anderson mate.

2.) 24 Jul 2021 12:25:11
Mally, 17yr old defender some are calling the new KT.

3.) 24 Jul 2021 12:49:34
Apparently young full back with high hopes of being the next KT, hopefully we can keep them.

4.) 24 Jul 2021 13:59:18
Thanks bhoys 👍.

5.) 24 Jul 2021 17:19:39
They were calling Ralston the right back KT and look how that’s worked out 🤔😉.



23 Jul 2021 13:08:08
Are the reports true about a bid from Brighton for Edouard? 21m.


1.) 23 Jul 2021 14:37:00
Think they are just rumours at the minute, supposedly palace are going to be coming in with a bid . However if we start with ajeti on Wednesday we will not beat the Danes . Ajeti just doesn’t suit our system, and barely looks a threat. Apart from a chance eddy should have taken last week I thought he was good and the threat went when he went off.

2.) 23 Jul 2021 15:09:21
The Edge is off Eddy’s game he hasn’t downed tools I just think the edge that gives him that but extra has gone so time to move on AFTER Wed as Ajeti has no presence whatsoever.

3.) 23 Jul 2021 15:30:32
He is just going through a lean spell, once he starts scoring, everything will be fine,

4.) 23 Jul 2021 15:33:14
Agree totally, hopefully Kyogo is the new Henrik!

5.) 23 Jul 2021 15:36:37
No it's 25m euros apparently.

6.) 23 Jul 2021 16:49:39
Yeah that's about 21m sterling 👍.

7.) 23 Jul 2021 17:30:34
@Turner1984 if Kyogo is the new Henke then I swear that Abada has a touch of the Lubo about him.

8.) 23 Jul 2021 20:13:46
Then the future will be green and white 🍀🍀🍀.

9.) 23 Jul 2021 21:09:40
Eddy wasn’t great last season but still our top scorer.



19 Jul 2021 11:21:11
Does anyone else not think we miss a trick by not exploiting the South American Market?

I was on transfermarkt earlier and players playing in top flight Brazilian league are valued quite cheap!

Porto exploit the South American leagues and their return from investments is unbelievable, in a 10 year period they made 776m in sales!

We are the perfect club to allow players to progress and be in the shop window for teams from premier league and the rest of Europe.

However Ed you might be able to help out here are there work permit issues for players from South America?


{Ed002's Note - Yes, there would be Work Permit issues in England and Scotland for cheap South American players. It is much less of a problem in other countries, such as Portugal.}

1.) 19 Jul 2021 12:00:34
Language spoken, climate and culture will play a big part with these players and who they sign for.

If you're Argentinian or Brazilian a move to Spain or Portugal makes perfect sense.

Playing Malaga when it's 25 degrees and the sun's splitting the rocks or Dundee when it's 10 degrees and pishing down - I know what I would choose.

2.) 19 Jul 2021 12:06:15
Lucky if you get 10 degrees in dundee.

3.) 19 Jul 2021 12:12:18
Me too, Dundee. Have you ever tried playing in heat like that?

4.) 19 Jul 2021 12:56:14
😄🤣😂 aye - nae bother.

5.) 19 Jul 2021 17:11:00
Not possible unless these guys are International players due to work permit regulations at which point they are not affordable.
Markets we should be exploiting are Netherlands, and the Scandinavian leagues. The players play in similar climates, their own leagues of similar standard and our finances dwarf the majority of clubs in these leagues.
In Netherlands in particular the technical abilities of players are very high and bargains are there, just look at Larsson a Scandinavian player playing in Netherlands or Virgil Van Dijk.
Majority speak English and have a good track record in our country.

6.) 19 Jul 2021 19:21:13
Good points all round there!

Some cracking players to get in the Eredivise

Kyogo's national team mate Yukinari Sugawara from AZ Alkmaar, RB for 2.7m absolute bargain!

Jordan Teze CB from PSV, 6.7m is a snip for him his value will go right up in the future!

Danilho Doekhi from Vitess absolute unit of a CB, 2.7m absolute bargain again

Maximiliano Romero 2.7m from PSV decent striker

I thought the Eredivise would be an expensive market but seems reasonable.

7.) 19 Jul 2021 19:47:13
I hear what you're saying Turner1984, there's players out there to be had.
Totally agree GGGG - Viking Power☘.

{Ed007's Note - You should see Barry (Ice Man) then, Pedro!! Jeez oh man I thought he was The Berserker from WWE when I met him yesterday!}

8.) 19 Jul 2021 21:17:03
Brilliant 😄😆🤣.

{Ed007's Note - 😁

9.) 19 Jul 2021 21:28:14
Turner, transfermarket is not an accurate transfer fee website. Some people like your self take it as if it Is the gospel.

10.) 20 Jul 2021 00:01:58
Juninho Juarez Pena Emerson Schiedt are few reasons why we don’t look at that market.

11.) 20 Jul 2021 15:47:29
All this talk of players from European markets is a bit more difficult now because of brexit. Previously EU players could move freely within the single market, not the case now, and we are left on the outside looking in.



06 Jul 2021 18:54:06
Would anyone take Alioski? Free after his departure from Leeds today, I think he would be a great addition.


1.) 06 Jul 2021 19:20:31
Definitely, although I’d say he would be out of our price range regarding wages. We wouldn’t be able to match Leeds wages and he’s turned them down.

31 Aug 2021 23:48:48
1m Mcann to Preston surely a massive opportunity missed here, cracking player especially at that price, surely enquired but must of wanted to play down south.




31 Aug 2021 14:59:45
Just a quick one regarding transfer activity, I have a feeling Jota and Giakoumakis will be the only incoming dealings completed today.

Leaves us shorter on quality, however.

McCarthy hopefully can bolster the midfield with a bit of fight which is missing in our game right now.

With Giakoumakis coming in I hope it's for Kyogo and him to compete for the CF position, not for Kyogo to get put on the left, but still should be great competition for that position!

Ralston and Juranovic are good options for RB so I'm happy here.

I believe Scales will be CB option so we could've done with a LB however Montgomery needs game time to progress and I feel he has what it takes to take Taylors position.

Abada or Forrest on the Right again im happy with that, and young Dembele when he's back to fight for a role.

On the left we are yet to know what Jota can bring but he has potential, then Johnson to come back its potentially a weak area but its still options that we didn't have last year.

Hart will be a big player for us this season, he will make mistakes but he will in turn make brilliant saves, what more can we ask for in this position.

I feel Starfelt isn't the answer for CB, nor Julien when he is back, this hopefully will be sorted in the future. Don't get me wrong against most of the SPL these two are fine alongside Welsh, but in the big physical games they aren't anywhere near it.

I believe with the sales of Eddy and Christie today it will leave a January kitty that Ange can utilise with probably targets identified from the J-League which he has mentioned in a previous interview that its the best time to dip into that market.

Big tests ahead this season, especially in Europe, Leverkusen and Betis have fantastic players, Ferencváros will also be no mugs.

I've enjoyed the way we've played in games this season under Ange, exciting, fast and something to be proud of and the man himself is someone who represents the club exactly how we want to be represented.

Physicality its still a big scare and to challenge for the title and domestic trophies will require this to be addressed moving forward, however let's enjoy what's happening and make conclusions at the end of the season, plenty work done and plenty still to happen!

A replacement for Rogic again required, he's very replaceable and served his time, played well in games this season but doesn't have the legs to go a full season I don't think. Bitton also should be replaced.

Happy LG has left he's had his chances.

The board must not take the foot off the pedal with supporting Ange in this rebuild, bringing in the right players is crucial, let's not sign players for the sake of it.


1.) 31 Aug 2021 15:44:30
Agree with your assessment of the CB situation.



04 Aug 2021 06:49:40
Nathaniel Clyne and Cahill sitting there free transfers, get the Irish Young lad in, Doig, Ferguson and Nisbett and I think we've had a decent transfer window, if Eddy was sold that's plenty left to invest moving forward as well, we should kick on and get these players in.


{Ed007's Note - So basically you're saying if we sign practically a whole new first team it'll be a 'decent' transfer window?
Calm down there Turner, don't over excite yourself there.}

1.) 04 Aug 2021 08:25:27
Well Ed we know fine well we need another two full backs, CB, another CM and ST so yes Ed practically a new 11

Hart New
RB New (Clyne)
Starfelt New
CB New (Cahill)
LB New (Doig)
Soro or New (Ferguson)
Mccarthy New
Abada New
Kyogo New
ST New (Nisbett)

8 of the 1st 11, your not seriously happy still with what we've got Ed, stop being so calm and get a reality check it's what we need!

{Ed007's Note - Calm? I'm a 47-year old man mate, there's far more important things going on in the world and in my life for me to act like a daft wee lassie about footballl transfers.
And let's face it, even if the Club done exactly what you wanted it would still only be 'a decent window' for you and you'd still girn about something.
Here's a reality check - if you're older than 18 and transfer windows affect you like this you should maybe step away from the keyboard and spend some time with your family.}

2.) 04 Aug 2021 11:54:40
Too funny 🤣😂😁.

3.) 04 Aug 2021 15:33:00
There's still another 27 days of the window and Ed's already turned savage as fck 😂.

{Ed007's Note - Come on, he started smoking again - after 2.5 years - because we went out to Midtjylland and then for some bizarre reason accused me of defending the board

28 Jul 2021 21:12:54

They've been that woeful 2.5 yrs of stopping smoking has come to an abrupt end, this is shocking beyond belief.

Ed I hope your not going to defend the board here for being ridiculously slow in the transfer market, this is unforgivable!



01 Aug 2021 09:50:40
Last night is a massive lesson.

We can't defend crosses still, a towering CB is required to command the box!

Need a pacy pair of wing backs who can defend, Ralston again well done son for your efforts.

The positioning of the team when defending is atrocious, my goldfish move around the bowl in a more coordinated structure and the lack lustre energy from the midfield to get back and support when we are under counter attacks is shambolic to put it kindly.

Why play a striker that doesn't want to be here?

GK is a massive must, in foster we had a guy who could pull off saves that would win you points, these two can't do that, sweeper keeper doesn't work its becoming embarrassing.

The new lads need to settle in big ask on their league debuts to produce miracles however the planning of this is mainly at fault, sick of the excuses of rebuilds take time, the signs were clear all last season, how long do they actually want to rebuild?

New staff required with new ideas urgently otherwise we are stuck in the same rut, don't like people losing their jobs however I'd lose my job for underperfoming so why haven't they?

A club like no other is a tag line that's diminishing daily. Yes we've been privy to an unbelievable 9 years but that is no excuse for a lack lustre season followed by an underwhelming start to a new one.

If the board had the fans best interests at heart this fiasco wouldn't continue, so is it not the board that needs an overhaul? They should be extremely proud of the job they done up until the point BR left the club. It's been backwards ever since and anyone with any common decency would hold their hands up and allow a new reign to commence, if they love the club as much as we are made to believe, however I believe £signs are the only love they truly hold dear.

Hopefully our ranting will soon become a thing of the past, however I believe there's more chance that Barkas would save 1/ 20 shots than that happening HH.


1.) 01 Aug 2021 14:14:46
If Ange doesn't get rid of Strachan and Kennedy he might as well quite now.2 out of the 4 new signings are in the first team. to many players are complacent due to no one to challenge them. forest, Bitton just to name a couple.



30 Jul 2021 09:33:31
Man City absolutely walked the park with Preston the other night using young lads, these lads are top talent, many won't get a sniff at the first team these season!

Morgan Rogers ST, Yan Couto RB, Cole Palmer LW, Itakura when he's back from Olympics!

get them in on loan ASAP, Man City changed their youth loan policy so that you can loan these youth players for 2 year for stability for their progression, these lads have all the ability we require.


1.) 30 Jul 2021 11:00:44
Just like ntcham .

2.) 30 Jul 2021 12:16:54
To be fair, ntcham looked every bit a player when he came in. Feck knows what’s happened to him since but he ain’t the same player we signed fae city.

3.) 30 Jul 2021 12:33:06
Ntcham doesn't want to be at Celtic and his performances like Eddy's prove this we should get rid ASAP, the loan to OM didn't work and he probably realises we are his level. But the French have all goto go even julien as he has been out for ages and I am sure I read somewhere he wanted to leave too.

4.) 30 Jul 2021 13:11:59
Once these better sides get their business done and squads start to take shape I'm expecting a couple of loans to come in.

5.) 30 Jul 2021 13:23:25
Some of the lads at these top academies are head and shoulders above what we have, and we could get them in quickly. Loans can generally be terminated at any time, and we have good links with City we should be using them.

Ntcham simply hasn't developed any further and his attitude is displayed on the pitch.

1 out of 10 games you get a real performance and see the brilliance that made us sign him, but he's been around too long, couple seasons and punt for profit before they nose dive like he has .

Any keeper will have a better chance of looking half decent, as long as Starfelt isn't infront of them!

Our transfer activity this season has been immense, but we need to cut our losses with Starfelt and address this quickly, the only position needing strengthened in my eyes!

Bain will be fine as a stand in the rest of the season.

2 experienced signings we have needed, I'd of took cahill as well he is experienced enough to teach the young CBs moving forward.

Don't know anything about the Croatian lad is he any good?

Striker is urgently required.

Hes head and shoulders above the 2 we have, I just hope he finds his form again, his stats when consistent were impressive.

If Eddy played the way we know he can he wouldn't be in the position he finds himself in with very few transfer options.

Maybe it's the C.V. that's pulled the purse strings on many clubs not making a move for him but surely if he pulled his finger out of his stroppy sphincter and started performing he would get the move he desires!

Brighton isn't the dizzy heights I expected him to potentially end up at and he is surely either going to get a grip, sign a contract extension with a buy out clause and play to prove to the bigger clubs he's worth buying, or push for a move to a mediocre team simply because he has no desire to be here anymore and let us utilise his transfer fee to strengthen the team!

Our squad rebuild was simply for a domestic challenge not European success.

I'm glad we are out of the "new" European Cup, the competition shouldn't exist.

If we win the league we will keep rebuilding that's a dead cert.

Starfelt has to be the first replaced I can't understand how so many of us defend his Sunday league abilities because we've kept a good defensive record in the SPL, he gets found out anytime we play anyone with substance, therefore simply not good enough, runs about like he's holding in a rubbish.

Improving from diabolical to mediocre isn't what celtic need!

To be fair on him its potentially playing LCB that causes the pressure, he doesn't look confident on his left, panics, holds his body position in a funny angle, the crowd peer through their fingers, and 9/ 10 times someone else's rescues him from embarrassment.

However lads if your happy with this standard as our 1st choice CB then by all means that's fine ?

When ex professional footballers comment on him reguarly saying he's not the right choice you can't of have to take note, I prefer Welsh and Welsh will only keep improving, Starfelt is probably at his peak, if you call it that.

Yesterday's game was exactly what would be expected after an international break, controlled the game but some passes wayward, and some players like turnbull over attempting a killer ball then not closing down quick enough when he lost possession. However against Ross County you expect a win and we got it. The danger moments against us were created by us, they will be more disciplined moving forward. Took my son for his first game and he was delighted to celebrate 3 goals and witness the atmosphere for the first time, and he had zero complaints about the game so I'll take his youthful perspective on the match and be very satisfied the win and clean sheet was achieved.
Jota could be a real crowd pleaser this season some nice flicks and tricks and on another day abada gets a hatrick, unlucky with hitting the bar.

Hopefully ajeti gains plenty confidence from his two goals HH.
