Really frustrated that the Ed’s didn’t post my response but here goes again.

I clearly called out we’d signed two very very good players, in my opinion the two I was talking about was Aribo and Helander, although I acknowledge that the later is pure based on the transfer fee.

The other 8 players we’ve signed are quantity signings, purely to increase our squad, all 8 could easily not play and simply sit on the bench.

We were promised quality signings over quantity, 8 v 2 is very unbalanced.

Now you put a below average player from a poor Kilmarnock team into the mix then I’m lost for words at the overall average approach we’ve taken to transfers.

{Ed001's Note - have you ever thought it might not have come through? Whining about things not being posted is more likely to just get your posts deleted out of hand than help your case. Most of the time people complaining have sent it using a mobile and haven't realised their connection dropped off and so the post never came through.}

Fair play Ed, apologies I thought it was personal 🤪

Won’t happen again mate, sorry.

{Ed001's Note - no mate, I make a point of not looking at who has posted until after I have decided what to do with it.}


2.) 20 Aug 2019 19:25:25
Unless it’s Supercoop having a meltdown believe all posts make it through.

{Ed001's Note - not all mate. But those that don't are for good reason, such as overly personal attacks on another poster or trying to point score over things that really are not for a banter site. The regular posters do tend to get pretty much all posts through, simply because the content of the posts is decent. We tend to get a lot sent from new posters that has to be deleted though. Sadly the vast majority of people behind a keyboard spend their time trying to be nasty and abusive, which is why we have to pre-edit everything, rather than just allowing it to go straight up unchecked.}

Greg Taylor is better than any lb we have Halliday was shocking on Sunday.


4.) 20 Aug 2019 21:06:06
A good insight to how things work. I know most of us on here have followed the site for a while and appreciate what you do for us! Keep up the good work!

{Ed001's Note - thanks mate. We did originally go without editing in the early days, but it meant I was spending my entire time removing stuff that shouldn't have been there. There was people posting up nasty comments about the disasters of Munich, Ibrox and Hillsborough and I am sure you can guess the kind of things that Rangers fans would post. It is sad what people think is ok to use to cause an argument online.}


5.) 20 Aug 2019 21:13:06
Thanks Ed001, good to hear fair and balanced editorial review process in place.

Supercoop, no disrespect and only good intentions in passing reference to you.

{Ed001's Note - we try to leave you as free as possible, it is only abuse and swearing, as we know kids read the sites, but really we don't want to get involved with editing if at all possible.}


6.) 20 Aug 2019 21:35:10
No problem bankie, we're all bears together on here with different opinions. that's what makes it healthy mate, if you catch my drift. Would just like to reiterate what some have already said in reference to thanking the good work the ed's do, to supply this fantastic site for us all to air our opinions and views. So from me also, i thank all the ed's very much for this terrific facility you guys supply for us! 👏👏
You all do a cracking job, cheers again.

{Ed001's Note - cheers SGL, over 18 years now since we started the first site, with absolutely no idea what to expect.}


7.) 21 Aug 2019 00:29:55
Hopefully this post to tell Katic to dry his eyes makes it through hahaha! Honestly mate, lighten up, we have definitely strengthened. It was the squad that needed strengthened more than the starting 11. It was when we needed to go to the bench or got suspensions or injuries that we fell apart last year.


8.) 21 Aug 2019 00:32:07
Gonna address sir rock katic's point. It's nonsense what you've posted there mate, 8 poor signing v 2 good ones? Based on what? You realise Steve Davis is one of those don't you? Jones has shown good performances in just last 2 starts, Edmondson hasn't put a foot wrong, ojo has a few goals and assists already and king is a premier league player who only played 30 mins. What an unbelievably negative post. The only questionable signing for me is greg stewart.


9.) 21 Aug 2019 00:11:30
Clearly you did not read my response properly so I’m not going to rewrite it, just ask you to re-read it.
Question though- would you rather we brought in a number of players and improve the overall squad, have a strong first 11 and strong options in reserve or, sign a couple of ‘big name players’ (say like a couple of Mexican internationals or a Portuguese international with over 100 caps) that don’t fit the team we are building and cause us to flop?

Have you also considered how difficult it is to bring players of a better ‘quality’ than say Davis, Jack, Kamara, Morelos, Tav etc etc to play in the Scottish league? Celtic have had to spend £7m on a player no one had heard of and £3m in a left back who looks terrible.

We clearly have brought in players that have improved the overall quality of the squad. Come back to me at the end of the season and if you’re not happy with the way things have gone fair enough. Oh and if you don’t want to renew your season ticket there’s 15k waiting to take it.


10.) 21 Aug 2019 00:16:21
Couldn't lace barisic boots tango 👍 big mans not had a run of 8 to 10 games yet to get a bit of confidence up and up to full match fitness. Still convinced wed see a different animal if he got a decent run in the tesm.


11.) 21 Aug 2019 08:01:40
Barisic has most definitely had enough chances herewego55.Always have said he's talented but i'd cut my losses and try and sell him now. It doesn't look as if he has the heart to play for our club, in the scottish game. Hope we can sign either max lowe or greg taylor, to replace barisic.


 

 

18 Aug 2019 15:25:03
I was watching the reading game earlier on and Ejaria was outstanding. Now I was a huge critic of Ejaria, he was timid, weak, ineffective and generally nowhere near the standard required to play for Rangers. It then got my thinking of Waghorn who again was murder but appears to be doing okay in the championship. What stops these players making it with us but then playing well in a better league? Are our standards too high? Is our league better than people think? do these players simple not try as hard playing in Scotland?

Sir_Rock_Katic

1.) 18 Aug 2019 15:57:42
Both Players could not deal with pressure and expectation to perform to win every game. The expectation at Rangers and Celtic has found out many players in the past.


2.) 18 Aug 2019 15:59:47
A mixture of all those things imo. But definitely huge pressure playing for us, can never make a mistake, never have one poor pass without the crowd wanting blood!


3.) 18 Aug 2019 16:52:17
The English Championship isn't that good.


4.) 18 Aug 2019 17:21:16
The quality of player in the english championship isn't great and neither is the standard of football. Its only competitive because every club is on a par with each other. How many players over the last few years have came to us from that league and been poor and then go back and do pretty well. Playing for us is completely different to playing with a derby or a reading. 👍.


5.) 18 Aug 2019 17:22:34
Mrgrumpy - " the English Championship isn't that good " Oaft, what a poor statement my friend.


6.) 18 Aug 2019 17:23:26
game is very fast here. a lot of rushing into tackles etc. players don't get any time on ball and hve to be able to adapt to that and the pressure.


7.) 18 Aug 2019 22:26:38
Really? I stand by it. there's some big clubs i. e Leeds, Nottingham Forest and a lot of money But in my opinion the league standard isn't great. Boys like waghorn apparently worth millions, bang average up here. Player of the year and league goldenboot, Pukki couldn't get a game for c*ltic.


8.) 19 Aug 2019 08:50:23
Waghorn was good enough for us as main striker in championship but not when we got promoted. Think that will also be the case with Derby regardless of his valuation. The boy Ejaria was good enough for us under SG abut just could not settle in Scotland. He left for non football reasons and hopefully has now developed as a person.


9.) 19 Aug 2019 11:26:34
The game up here relies too much on physicality rather than technique. Ejaria did not like the tough tackling.


10.) 19 Aug 2019 13:04:23
I liked Ejaria but he wasn't up for the fight / thought he was a superstar.

Very good result against a reasonable team, very well played.

Sir_Rock_Katic

1.) 08 Aug 2019 21:09:50
Yeah the were a big physical side!


2.) 08 Aug 2019 21:42:21
Being honest I thought they would be better than they were. I thought we played well but not brilliantly. Still trying to find our formation and squad with the new signings.


 

 

02 Jul 2019 10:50:05
Im actually cringing at all the Daniel Sturridge comments on here, come on guys lets get serious, were not even close to being in for him. All the ridiculous comments on this topic is only making us and our team a laughing stock. Well continue to sign young, hungry and most importantly fit players who will compliment our already impressive squad and as a result of this strategy well be up there at the end of the season.

Sir_Rock_Katic

1.) 02 Jul 2019 11:46:49
Never mind the massive salary drop he'd face he's not good enough for Rangers. Since Suarez left Liverpool I have't seen him play a good game.


2.) 02 Jul 2019 11:53:08
Sir Rock Stewart, you would be better off staying away from this site after all its all about rumours! Go and rest in a dark room and 55 is on its way!


3.) 02 Jul 2019 12:00:44
Why are we a laughing stock? Its a rumour and banter page. So what if people wish or dream? . You want a laughing stock youre on the wrong page.


4.) 02 Jul 2019 12:14:21
Its not banter when its taking the piss out of us, Im happy staying on the page, Id encourage the halfwits on this page to join the Celtic pages, itll suit them better.


5.) 02 Jul 2019 12:33:12
Heard Rangers are signing koulibaly from Napoli partner for katic.


6.) 02 Jul 2019 12:43:48
Kfraser to say he's not good enough is crazy. He would be our best striker. That is a fact. But what is also a fact is tht he would never drop 80-100k a week wage to play for us.


7.) 02 Jul 2019 13:03:32
Sir Rock, has she thrown you out or do you have a boil/ pimple on your arse? Lighten up and 55 will be with you!


8.) 02 Jul 2019 13:06:16
Paul86 what are his goal scoring stats the past 3 years? And Liverpool are a team that creates chances by the bucket load. Anyway I don't think I could handle his weird goal celebration and might find myself hoping he doesn't score!


9.) 02 Jul 2019 13:26:06
Not sure if its just the time of the month with you Yatley or if your just a little sensitive if general. I know exactly where 55 is thanks and well get there without extracting the urine out of ourselves or empowering other people to do it for us.


10.) 02 Jul 2019 14:59:34
The only way we would get sturridge is if morelos left for big bucks. We won't have morelos defoe and sturridge. A huge chunck of the fee received for morelos would pay for sturridge's wages.


11.) 02 Jul 2019 15:32:54
He was injury free last season but am sure he can be excused not getting into liverpools starting 11. Esp the front 3 who have just won the european cup. But yeah the guy has talent and would walk into our team.


12.) 02 Jul 2019 15:38:11
Forget the fact that its nearly impossible to sign him, there is actually some folk on here turning there nose up and saying he is nowhere near good enough .


13.) 02 Jul 2019 16:47:38
Sharpshooter it's their nose and he isn't good enough. Let's all stop this ridiculous Sturridge stuff. I despair at some of the posters here. Been on the Celtic page a couple of times and they're all friendly, not us. No wonder the Rangers jersey is a hard one to wear.


14.) 02 Jul 2019 17:52:42
Not good enough wf planet are you on? My point was itll never happen anyway but wtf are some people on?


15.) 02 Jul 2019 17:56:47
All friendly? That idiot timalloy who is always on here was getting tore a new 1 over there the other day so dont give me that patter. They were bordering on a meltdown until that 7m guy signed. A only went on to see what the general thought was about tierney leaving because I know his auld man.


16.) 02 Jul 2019 20:47:44
Aye Sturridge is a special talent and would rip it up in ths spl. Is it unrealistic to think he might come? Probably and as Coldo says the only way it might happen is if the club gets big bucks for Morelos.


 

 

31 May 2019 08:57:33
I’ll be pretty frustrated and disappointed if we don’t push the boat out and go for Turnbull. Now that it would appear Celtic are interested we should be going in with the correct value bid and get the opportunity to speak with him first. We’ve lost out on too many good young Scottish players over the years and I would prefer not to add his name to the list.

Sir_Rock_Katic

1.) 31 May 2019 11:39:20
I don't agree. We already have a couple of players that plays in a similar position in Greg Docherty and Rossiter. There is also a couple that I would expect to be pushing for a first team action from our youth. Our attacking mid options will be arfield, Stewart, Docherty and Dorrans if he stays and Hastie can play through the middle also. Yes Turnbull is a good young player but not any better than what we have imo.
So why waste 2 million plus on a position of the park that we are really strong. Imo our centre mid is the best in the country atm. 2 centre halfs, left back and target man centre forward is what we need.


2.) 31 May 2019 11:42:19
I agree mate, I’m slightly worried our signing policy is going to steer towards the here and now rather than getting the best young talent for the future due to the necessity to stop 10 in a row. Think it would be a mistake, but window not even open yet and hopefully Stevie and mark have it all in hand.


3.) 31 May 2019 13:08:16
I agree with Coully. We mustn't lose sight of the bigger picture with an obsession of stopping 10 in a row. When the two Mexicans were signed some of us had raised eyebrows but thought oh well they must know something we don't. No they didn't. Maybe Rossiter will prove his worth, maybe he won't and fall foul of injuries again. I'd like to see Docherty back and sign Turnbull, even if we loan him back to Motherwell for a season but I can see a Scotland midfield of Jack, Turnbull and Docherty in a season or two. Throw Souttar into the mix and be a Rangers again with the backbone of the national team and a decent fan base. Turnbull won't make the Celtic starting 11 and it would be a mistake joining them. He just might make ours and needs to be playing and not following the Scott Allan example.


4.) 31 May 2019 13:24:56
Will cost you £2,5m. can you afford it.


5.) 31 May 2019 13:48:24
Anotherhampdenwin. You really are totally obsessed with the one and only Glasgow Rangers, I'm sure you must sit with our page, open at all times even in your sleep, sorry being obsessed you probably dream about the the most famous team ever, talk to your GP he can help, and you can then rest easy and worry about your own team.


6.) 31 May 2019 14:28:53
Lets not get to carried away with Docherty. He was playing for a team in English footballs third tier and for a team who were fighting against relegation. Ian Black played for the same team a couple of years ago and now he is playing junior football.


7.) 31 May 2019 14:36:53
Sir Rock, who are these 'too many good young Scottish players'? And why the obsession with a 'Scotland' midfield, kfraser? As for signing Turnbull then loaning him back, that's the most absurd idea of the season and it's not even started yet! And why on earth would we want to sign a player who wouldn't, in your words, get a game for Celtic? Then I noticed the Souttar reference and 'Scotland's backbone and realised exactly where you are coming from - unicorn land.


8.) 31 May 2019 14:42:08
I think you're being a bit unfair Shaft1690, comparing greg docherty with ian black mate.


9.) 31 May 2019 14:50:36
Shaft1690 ridiculous comparison. After one season at Shrewsbury Black had his contract cancelled because he was so poor and so unfit. Docherty was their shining light, their player of the year, outstanding at that level and will now be stepped up for another loan of either six months or a season.


10.) 31 May 2019 15:45:54
Why are ian black and greg docherty in the same sentence👍.


11.) 31 May 2019 17:51:25
Anotherhamdenwin don't you listen when when people give you advice, if you think the tic will spend 2.5 million on Turnbull, when they would not spend the same on McGinn you are having a laugh, more inane drivel from you, you must be a schoolboy.


12.) 31 May 2019 23:08:29
He's a pensioner living in Goa, apparently. And i'm seeing Scarlett Johannsen on a regular basis.

Seeker, a warm reception will be available to you if your giro stretches to a Thomas cook flight to goa. CFC supporters club sportsman bar, near st antonys rc church, calangute. always a happy home for Tim's and the occasional bear. check us out on Celtic and rangers bars.

Sturridge and Sinclair should be said in the same sentence. Every time we post this rubbish rumour we encourage other clubs and fans to laugh at us. remember that time you thought you’d signed RVP, or remember when you thought you’d sign Sturridge, total nonsense and makes us a laughing stock.

I’ll honestly wear a Celtic top every week for the rest of the season if Sturridge signs. not a hope in hell, Christ we’d have been doing great to sign him in the 90’s! Even if he got his right leg amputated we wouldn’t sign him and although I’m all for the banter, this chat of Sturridge is dragging our good name through the mud! More chance of Morelos signing for a Barcelona.

‘We’ve signed two player who could be very very good players’.

What part of that is difficult for you to understand? I’m not actually sure how else I could articulate this?

Aribo and Helander are the two I’m talking about, the rest of the signings are quantity and not the quality we were promised at season ticket renewal.

Perhaps Edmundston might go on to be a good player but for now he appears to be 4th choice so I can’t honestly say he’s a quality signing.

Hopefully this is clear enough for you Ger78 and Theswagman and while I pay my cash each season I’ll continue to be realistic about our recruitment.

Awful mate, completely awful.

Our recruitment plan was to be simple, quality over quantity.

We’ve signed 2 players who could be really really good players, the rest are here to make up the numbers.

Our squad has better depth but the quality signings promised have not materialised.

Don’t worry though, we’ll get the same message next year around season ticket renewal.

It kind of does matter, really difficult to comment on anybody’s performance after only 17 minutes.

Give him a few weeks playing 90 minutes then you can make a fair assessment.
