    Eddie is effectively playing for his move now ! If true and no clubs approached us for him in the window then maybe hes realised he must perform to get his move !

    Has Lawwell taken over the boardroom at Marseilles ?

    Strange that AVB offered to resign over this (without payoff) ... so the club suspend him. :43:

    Can he not afford to walk away ? Or do they not want to sack him and be liable for compo?

    Olivier Ntcham reckons he will be an asset to Marseille despite manager Andre Villas-Boas's fury over the club's decision to sign him.

    The French outfit loaned Celtic's midfielder without telling their manager - a decision which brought a livid Villas-Boas out in defiance in front of the media where he offered his resignation.

    The Portuguese claimed Ntcham was one player he specifically did NOT want to sign, though the club brought him in with a £4.5million future fee.

    Ntcham, though, refused to take the issue to heart and claimed the club should be happy to have him in the door due to his Champions League experience and title-winning history .


    He said: "Having a player like me who has played a lot in the Champions League or the Europa League, I think that's always an asset.

    "I'm going to bring my personality already (in the dressing room), energise it, bring a lot of positivity, I hope we will do great things together. "

    Ntcham also the reason behind his decision to join the Liegue 1 giants. He added: "Olympique de Marseille is the biggest club in France, with the greatest fervor and the greatest supporters.

    "They have accomplished great things in French and European football too.

    It's the first time I've come to Ligue 1, it's a new experience.

    "It's a very big championship with very great teams who have had good runs in the Champions League and the Europa League. It's a new challenge for me."

    You feel sort of sorry for AVB.

    He is trying to save face - I’d be mortified if I was him.

    Bit late, now. If he had started it on Jan 2., well, he could have called himself a title-saver, and attracted big clubs.

    Not too late to get a good move, he just needs to get the goals. He has scored 15 goals in 26 games this season, 6 in his last 6, he will earn a move.

    The Celtic twitter account is basically just a Happy Birthday generator these days. A part from when we drop points its awfully quiet for a couple days.

    I’d likely console myself by knowing that after the age of 30 I’d never have to work another day in my life

    Olivier Ntcham denies Villas-Boas claims that the Portuguese coach was unaware of his arrival


    Speaking at an unveiling press conference on Tuesday, French central midfielder Olivier Ntcham denied claims made by now departed manager André Villas Boas that he wasn’t aware and didn’t want Marseille to sign the Celtic man.

    I was told about what he said because I didn’t listen to him. It surprised me a lot because when I finished the Euros with the U21s, Marseille wanted me. Andoni Zubizarreta contacted my entourage. So when I heard that, it made me laugh. André Villas Boas knows me well, he knew what was going on.”

    On the fact that he supported PSG:

    Yes, I said I was a PSG supporters a few years ago now I think but that does not have much importance for me. I am a competitor and if I am to play in a PSG vs Marseille I will not be handing out presents on the pitch, they remain opponents and I will got to war for the club.

    On Marseille’s recent form:

    You don’t refuse Marseille – whether the club’s situation at the time is good or bad. It is as if Barcelona or Real Madrid call you, you cannot refuse. Me, as a Frenchman, I could not refuse the club’s advances.

    Ntcham comes across as a bit of a * for whatever reason. Hopefully he * off for good.
