Apparently linked with Hamburger SV centre-back Stephan Ambrosius, free transfer in the summer, just broke into the Germany U21 set up.

Celtic linked to Ambrosius

1.) 20 Jan 2021 12:11:28
The cream rises to the top . al get ma coat 😅.

2.) 20 Jan 2021 12:56:48
I know 🙈 most activity I can find with legs.

I hope our recruitment has an absolute overhaul we need change ASAP.

Build for the future as well as the here and now and get the show back on the road.

3.) 20 Jan 2021 15:54:54
He’s signed a new deal with Hamburg.

4.) 20 Jan 2021 19:15:14
How many coats you mall😁😁.

5.) 20 Jan 2021 19:45:14
That's an old story. Slow news in terms of transfer rumours which Ed must be delighted with but with the way things have been the past few months he'd much prefer the transfer rumours 😂 Apparently Leeds are interested in the guy.

{Ed007's Note - He signed a contract extension like Spidey said. Pedro's saving the pennies to give Neil Francis Lennon a warchest to spend in the summer for next season after this year's football is cancelled in a few weeks. 😁

6.) 20 Jan 2021 22:11:03
You're usually a man in the know Ed I hope you've heard something about null and void 😂 But I hope the warchest isn't given to Neil Francis Lennon.

{Ed007's Note - Why not? You must know how I'm always defending Lennon 😁

7.) 20 Jan 2021 22:29:21
Your defense is morally wrong 😜.

{Ed007's Note - 😂😂 I got "morally unjustifiable" in a text message earlier.}

8.) 21 Jan 2021 03:25:23
We all can't be wrong eh 😉.

Sky and stv reporting it.

Potential outgoings.
This summer window is making me nervous.
Simunovic to lille, Ajer to AC Milan, Tierney to Arsenal, Cal Mac to Leicester.
I know it's all rumours but anything is possible in football, and I hate the sound of these possibilites.

1.) 02 Aug 2019 18:20:30
Turner SMSM switching on the nerves and tension on Celtic fans, as they do every year .
SMSM spent most of the window, trying to get £30m for a couple of players for David King’s Rangers . They have failed miserly to raise money for Rangers2012 and they will equally fail with their aim to break - up Celtic ‘s team.

2.) 03 Aug 2019 12:08:24
Agreed Chris, Lennon even came out after the Ajer “interest” and dismissed it.
Anything to get those clicks for revenue though.



12 Jul 2019 09:48:16
This Israeli lad is not the answer, no where near, buying someone for the sake of it is bad business.
So many more options out there, yet it seems that we are entering a panic buy situation, we've had a good start to signings and releases, don't go backward already, we have until September to recruit the correct players, another CB, a RB, another RB on loan, and a decent CAM, along with a striker on loan.

Yes we need the RB position solved before more champions league qualifiers.
Get Ntcham and Rogic sold, and use that money to bolster the team, we would probably fill all required positions with the money generated from those two being sold, sell Ntcham (12m) and Rogic (8m) , 20m is enough to play with, and keep KT for pushing for 10IAR.

1.) 12 Jul 2019 11:04:36
Has he signed.

2.) 12 Jul 2019 11:14:36
I asked you on an earlier post but you didn't answer.
How often have you seen the big Israeli lad?
Also how do we sell ntcham and rogic if no one bids for them?

3.) 12 Jul 2019 11:59:11
I've not seen much of him but what I have seen of him he is average at best, bang average.
Asking price likely set too high for Ntcham, shouldn't be a problem offloading him, Rogic different, I'm sure plenty teams are aware of his injuries, Italy would be ideal for him, even swap for a great RB if possible.

4.) 12 Jul 2019 12:19:17
Why you getting your knickers in a twist if he's no even signed and al hazard a guess you've never seen him or if you did it was against us.

5.) 12 Jul 2019 12:24:46
Callum patterson in at right back and use him as your back up target man if we are chasing a game. Big physical player, has experience and won't break the bank.

The boy Cadden at Mwell also decent on the right.

Too many fans just get excited at exotic names and big price tags.

6.) 12 Jul 2019 12:33:53
Price set to high? Your having a laugh.
This is a player who has played I the Italian top league and our top league plus European experience.
Look at the money players with less than half the experience he has are going for. Even French ed cost 9 million.
15 million is a fair price for him.

7.) 12 Jul 2019 13:01:23
Paterson and cadden my god we're struggling now caddens a winger and Paterson is mince.

8.) 12 Jul 2019 13:31:13
Anybody with some common sense will see Paterson and cadden are bang average for teams far below our level, we're needing solid players who suit there positions not somebody who can just fill in, that's when mistakes will happen in high pressure games.
I think for a quality right back and another box to box midfielder if ntcham does go we would need to spend about 10-13m, I like rogic, he's probably the most technically gifted player we have but he can't last 90 minutes so I would probably keep him for certain games and bring somebody else in who will get up and down and link the play.

9.) 12 Jul 2019 13:38:45
I actually think Patterson is a decent player but does he not struggling with injuries quite often.

10.) 12 Jul 2019 13:50:21
He's no realky a rb last to. e a saw him with Cardiff he was playing up front and he's bang average.

11.) 12 Jul 2019 14:18:13
He was put up front because they had an injury crisis. He's been a left back for years and years.

12.) 12 Jul 2019 14:51:18
Kev83, who are you talking about when you said " played in Italian top league, our league"?

13.) 12 Jul 2019 15:11:23
Ntcham, wyllie67.

14.) 12 Jul 2019 15:20:08
We need a right back that can defend, Lustiq was past it, up against nippy wingers, he made Kent look like a world beater,

15.) 12 Jul 2019 15:34:47
Ntcham mate.

16.) 12 Jul 2019 15:56:16
Kev Paterson has never been a lb he was used up front by Cardiff the majority of the time and rb at hearts and even Scotland and imo he's average.

17.) 12 Jul 2019 16:28:55
Mally it was meant to say RB but phone changed it because I've been writing out LBs for ages.
He move to RB at hearts and has played most his games down there as one. He's also played CDM and CM for Cardiff.

18.) 12 Jul 2019 17:36:03
Cool, I thought it was someone were looking at signing, lol.

19.) 12 Jul 2019 18:11:59
Any one mentioned is pure speculation until he is through the door As much as I like to see speculation at this time of year I won't think of it more than that at this time.

20.) 12 Jul 2019 18:13:53
No probs nate.

21.) 12 Jul 2019 21:40:58
15m might be a fair price but if nobody is willing to the 15 id take 12, plus sell on fee, instead of him sulking and dragging his heels, use the cash get someone else in who wants to play at the club and impress.

22.) 12 Jul 2019 23:32:54
Would sell Ntcham if he's going to down tools like last season. The money from his sale could buy us a replacement as well as RBs and a CF with change if you go with the current rumours of Baldock £3m, Elhamed £1.6m, Sawyers £2.5m and plenty left over for CF.

23.) 13 Jul 2019 02:42:43
Well there's a first for everything, an expert on israeli football on this forum PMSL.

24.) 13 Jul 2019 11:31:38
with regards to selling Nitcham I think we have to wait until after he's spoken with the gaffer and if he is of the mindset which has been portrayed and its not just journalistic fantasy then I would get rid of him asap. I wouldn't even wait for someone to bid the clubs valuation as long as we make a profit I'd punt him. I certainly would not be in favour of holding on to him to we get what he's worth (he's no KT) as we would be paying good money for nothing. It would be like cutting of your d**k to spite your wife.



08 Jul 2019 12:47:52
Any news on the Liam Morrison situation?

1.) 08 Jul 2019 13:04:48
Thought he was staying then saw a thread yesterday he was off to Bayern.

So Board are to make a decision end of next week.

1. No recruitment so I presume there will be no new arrivals. This would suggest to me NL will be gone after the transfer window, however the new manager will have to get a feel for the players available and what he needs moving forward.

2. No change on the board. This worries me as they are dinosaurs playing with the future of the club. Times change, business moves in different direction and fresh ideas need added to our plans for the future.

3. Nick Hammond to be replaced? This I hope as he clearly hasn't done any justice to keep his position, we need someone with much better credentials.

One thing remains and that simply is the direction of the club is going the wrong way.



16 Jan 2021 17:15:24
That game was absolutely torture to watch, no stamina, no creativity, just a bunch of lads looking like they want this season to be over, the coaching staff are clearly worse than I thought, imagine thinking we have just gained a great point to an inform Livingston, that is the shocking reality.
Every single cross into our box is an absolute closed eye affair, i've never seen our side so bad in my entire time as a Celtic fan.
I hope things change soon watching that is actually wasting my weekends with the kids!



25 Oct 2020 18:00:33
Sometimes change has to happen for the long term benefit of the club and today should be that day.

We have went backwards in our performances, players aren't all fully available but the remaining squad are more than capable of not only beating these teams but dominate them.

NL clearly isn't getting the best out of the lads and of this continues it could be a dreadful campaign, this is the campaign we have been waiting for.

If no action is taken im afraid the hierarchy need a shift also, as this is a clear issue needing resolved right now.

We have been lucky to amass the points we have this season with late goals and shocking performances so do us all a favour and get the change in now.

Eddie Howe for me, let him build the team up in his vision, we have to look at the future of the club not just this season.

No short term quick fix has been please.

1.) 25 Oct 2020 19:37:32
The sad truth is that Rodgers was stellar and raised the game all round. We're miles off that now. What to do? For me its not about bluster, which NL has in spades. I love the man. But what I want is someone like Ronnie, who can implement the changed that are so definitely required. I'd also be happy with WGS altho' that was the worst football I recall. . He seems in every interview that he wants the gig.

{Ed007's Note - It's disappointing that the overall standards seem to have dropped, Cav especially when they feel that far we're at the point of questioning players fitness and recovery from injuries. Things like training and sports science should have been maintained at the very least to the standards of the previous 2 managers.}



27 Aug 2020 14:14:53
Get malang sarr on loan great defender.



27 Aug 2020 12:01:06
Eddie Howe in my eyes could be a guy that could come to the club and do a good job for us, we don't have world football superstar egos at the club and Eddie works brilliantly with younger players and developing them, he was unlucky with Bournemouth injury crisis but I feel he would be an excellent choice to bring in if the board feel NL isn't the right man, and he will have a better drawing power to bring players in.

1.) 27 Aug 2020 12:11:27
Also, very long term and a one club sorta man .

Not saying he is better than NL bir I think CFC with an Eddie Howe type could be interesting, I do think he is a Better fit in terms of a progressive, modern method approach and may help with recruitment.

2.) 27 Aug 2020 12:14:36
NL won't be replaced unless we lose the league or he walks at the end of the season.

3.) 27 Aug 2020 12:20:14
NL came in when BR left suddenly - steadied the ship and won the league. NL won the league last year and took us out of the group stages of the Europa League - we beat Lazio (one of the best teams in Series A) - home and away. Yes we lost last night - but you don't judge a manager on one game.

4.) 27 Aug 2020 12:22:08
I like lennon because he is a celtic man, the problem is the board and Hammond they are useless in terms of strengthening the team correctly, but we can't get rid of them and they won't give NL what he needs so maybe best to see NL go and bring a Howe character to the club.

5.) 27 Aug 2020 12:23:47
Big bubs don't be soft . NL will be out if we falter in septemevr . a draw and a defeat domestically or 2 draws and rumour of dressing room dissatisfaction will mean TAXI.

Failure in EL qualification and that will say out loud that NL can't ascent to a new level, nor guide players to new levels

If celtic want top dollar for players ( assets) they need to show improvement and commitment. NL has his work cut out and I'll back him for now.

6.) 27 Aug 2020 12:36:29
I hope we sell every single player that wants to leave and get in players that truly want to play for the badge and fans
The dressing room will never be a great place if players want to move on
I loved Armstrong as a player but when you know he wants to move he no longer will give 100% so needed to leave, and I can see that in a few players right now and it isn't needed at a great club like ours.
I accept players like edouard come in, develop, and inevitably move on, they aren't here for the long run, just to earn the club points then cash, simple.
We have a month in the market to get it right, otherwise this season could be outrageous.

7.) 27 Aug 2020 13:04:17
It used to be a foreign thing with 20 somethings giving us 18 months

Now its Christie s dad or ajer's agent or ntcham .

A youngster with 6 consecutive good games is lauded and wants to move

Its ridiculous

In the spfl, you won't get commitment . not now not ever . a great coach however does buy you a little more time.

8.) 27 Aug 2020 13:28:07
Bournemouth have been trying to get rid of Eddie Howe for 2 seasons, he controlled every aspected of the footballing side of the game, his scouts, his signings, his favorites. he spent a hundred and odd million on players who didn’t even make the bench. Do you think the Celtic board would have him within a million miles Of Celtic?
Wise up, shut up and get behind the manager and the team, there’s history to be made by Celtic FC.

9.) 27 Aug 2020 13:37:12
Your right about not judging him on one game. But to be tactically inept and blame the the players when he hadn't done his homework. The only person who is to blame for last night is lennon. He should hold his hands up and walk away before it gets too late.

10.) 27 Aug 2020 14:03:21
Malika Lennon you be quiet . you're a cheerleader and people like you make people like PL and NL think they're mavericks . your blind naive loyalty doesn't wash with me one wee bit . jog on . you are a danger

This is a site for discussion

I always support my team and want the best for them and for us .

You however need to take off your wee plastic green framed green tinted spectacles with tricolour flags left and right and make a contribution ( a decent defense of your hero Lenmon) or sprint on .

11.) 27 Aug 2020 16:18:47
Lubo there is no chance of us sacking a manager in September while going for 10.

Its terrible for the business model of the club as well as the football side.

Who would want to invest in a club that has no contingency strategies, no ambition for growth, its pathetic.

The club is becoming a mockery and it needs sorted now, not tomorrow!

Well said Ed, Klimala will never be a Celtic Player of he doesn't get a sniff, why not loan the lad out if he isn't good enough, makes no sense what so ever, players need confidence and that lads must be crumbling.

{Ed007's Note - We know Ajeti isn't fully fit but surely Klimala is fit enough to at least start the match to try and get us a lead then swap him at half-time for Ajeti or even A.N. Other with a rejig and then bring on Ajeti with 15-20 mins to go.}

Preliminary qualifying round: €230,000
First qualifying round: €280,000
Second qualifying round: €380,000
Third qualifying round: €480,000
Base fee group stage: €15,250,000
Group match victory: €2,700,000
Group match draw: €900,000

So we sell eddy we earn receive 30m and massively weaken our team
€17m for getting to group stage plus extra if we draw or win any games in the group stage, we could earn say €20m for a season of champions league, without eddy we would struggle to qualify, so really you would have to take €20m off the sale price which means we would be virtually selling him for what we bought him for, he must stay this season.

I can't see nor want to believe that the Fletcher/ Taylor links are true.
In my eyes the club would be taking a backward step in signing either player, they just aren't the quality we are looking for, they have no sell on value either which isn't the mould we have been building on.
Also if these two were seriously what we had to replace Eddy if he left would cause an absolute uproar at the club.
So I'm going to ignore any links to these types of players and presume if we do sign them then its simply for them to work with our development team and be nowhere near our first team.
Now celtic let's get a CB lined up and let's crack on with the season.

Seen 3 different people in that interview.

1) Looked to me like a fan hurting over the points dropped
2) like a loyal servant taking the blame in order to get a decent severance package
3) a man being persecuted for a lawful decision

One thing remains and that is he needs to leave, great servant to our club and I wish him the best, but this isn't healthy for him one bit, the pressure placed on "10IAR" has been too much.
Our club has to look forward and ensure we constantly are focused on the next chapter as well as the here and now.

Youth players who you expect to make the grade should be training with the first team all the time, or loaned out for valuable game time.
The amount of youth talent wasted in the past few years because of miss direction is astonishing.

The young players without integration and challenge will not progress, playing u19 league pish will not progress them, they should at 16 be ready to get on the pitch and start playing, simple, these 3G pitches should be their speciality they train and play on them enough through the ranks.

I to had the joy of the 90s being my first era as a Celtic fan and in all fairness we played good football, they just won more, however right now this is by far the worst Celtic team I've seen.

No solid GK, no defensive general, no solid creative fullbacks, zero wingers with flair and pace creating endless opportunities, no dominant midfielders who dictate the play, and the prolific strikers are fading.

Its a sorry state of affairs from top to bottom.

Not only is the football we play shocking, but the wages these players receive in order to produce this garbage.

WE WILL NOT LURE GREAT PLAYERS, simply because the challenge in the SPL is woeful at best, the only players we will get are agents laughing stocks. We should be scouting all European countries that have a lower wage structure than our own. That way we will be able to attract the right talent. There is no point buying a bang average keeper for 5m from Greece when we could've got a great keeper from Croatia for 4m. The model needs adjusted and dedicated to.
We clearly have agent ties that need completely severed, and Hammond needs replaced!

Livingston players earn an average salary of £40k per year vs £840k average salary at Celtic, that is a shocking return we are seeing on the pitch.

We will never challenge in Europe unless the right structure is in place, it needs sorted now.
