£20m Marseille will pay for Dembele! Tabloids talk some utter pish, if we sold him for anything short of £35m then the board need their heads sorted.

Agree2 2Disagree

24 Jul 2017 09:21:05
Never going to get £35m. He said had one good year in Scottish football. Will be around £20 m which would be great business. If he stays another year and we do well in Europe the next his rice will increase next summer.

Seems we quoted Chelsea 30 million so can't see us dropping 10 off it.

Agree1 0Disagree

24 Jul 2017 10:07:12
Just read it. Would be gutted if he goes. What is the story, is the Club encouraging bids and actively looking to sell him? The kid himself has been fairly consistent in his interviews about being happy to stay, unless he is saying something different behind the scences?

I was really hoping we could keep this squad together for 3 seasons to see it develop and progress in Europe.

Its sky reporting this so could be garbage remember they had him going to milan last month.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Jul 2017 10:17:40
I can't believe the club will sell him for 20 million, when you read the article it says we fought off 30 from Chelsea in the Xmas window . So his value has dropped after scoring 32 goals 🤔.

Another no news day? Am I alone in thinking that Moussa's moments of brilliance hide a degree of inconsistency? Sure, on his day he is literally unstoppable but he has went of the boil on a good few occasions. Realise he is potentially a huge star but I don't think he's irreplaceable. The only issue would be time to recruit replacement (and the additional cover we need) .

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Jul 2017 10:29:52
20 mill and a 20% sell on fee would be fair business.

Agree0 1Disagree

24 Jul 2017 10:52:40
50 million to talk plus 25 pc sell on . then open talks. doesn't matter how many season s he's played in Scotland its not an spl club wanting to buy him. monaco just sold a full back for over 50 million. no such a thing as a fair price now the big leagues have seen to that. if someone wants him Then pay big or don't waste our time.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Jul 2017 10:56:46
Well played 007 yet again. We'd all like a bit more but £20m would be a great turn on a player over one season. Not a chance he's leaving until after the CL qualifiers now though surely.

{Ed007's Note - Cheers, JT but I wouldn't pay too much attention to the money being mentioned.}

3 big decisions for BR to make going into Weds game. Firstly at CB, i think Lustig will remain at RB because with Gamboa injured the only realistic option is to go with Lustig and have Ralston as cover. So for me not having Lustig as a CB option means going with Ajer, 16 games in the SPL is good enough experience its time for him to start as i have no idea what has happened to Erik he looks slow, gets caught in possession and plays slack balls so he is not an option for me at the moment. So that's a back 4 of Lustig Ajer Simunovic Tierney. Decision 2 is right wing and id go with Hayes over Forrest for this one, Hayes has looked well up for it looks very direct and final ball looks better and Forrest can come on and do plenty damage after an hour. Sinclair will obviously start on the left so that leaves decision 3 which is a big one and based on me thinking Rogic will start that leaves 2 places to fill. Brown will start so like last week it will be between Armstrong and Ntcham. I can't decide on that one i am very impressed with Ntcham he looks a class act, i also think the same about Armstrong. Or will BR go with McGregor who continues to improve week by week. Griffiths being banned means there is no decision 4. Either way i think we have a very strong 11 and a very strong bench more than capable of putting this tie to bed Wed night. With the GB unfortunately not in attendance is up to the rest to get Parkhead rocking let's get right behind the Manager and the players and drive the team to victory. Put all this nonsense behind us and enjoy the great times we are seeing under BR its only going to get better and we need to unite and give them full backing. Leave the infighting to the shambles across the city. Safe journey to all attending.

Think erik will play to be honest.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Jul 2017 09:47:42
That would be a concern to me Kev. He hasn't had a decent game since Deila was in charge. If not Ajer i think id rather see Brown sit back for 1 game and have Armstrong and Ntcham start together. I don't know if its lack of game time or what or he just ain't interested but if he starts i hope proves me wrong and he plays like he did when he arrived because there's no doubting he is a decent player when at his best.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Jul 2017 10:09:33
Stan i would also go with young ajer but think brendan will opt for eriks experience as he's very familiar with rosenberg.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Jul 2017 10:26:24
How is he very familiar with Rosenberg?

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Jul 2017 10:27:00
Sher is very familiar with Rosenberg.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Jul 2017 10:29:43
If that's the case Mally i hope this the game he gets back to being his old self. I think by playing Ajer we would see him develop quickly like Tierney.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Jul 2017 10:45:36
Keep it clean am meaning he knows quite few of the rosenberg players there strengths and weaknesses its a Scandinavian thing and who knows maybe he fancies them to. each to there own.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Jul 2017 08:23:01
Hope big Moussa is being wrapped in cotton wool before Wed if he gets a knock we're down to Ciftci (if he's still around) or a youth player. The shortage of strikers needs to be addressed.

Agree1 0Disagree

24 Jul 2017 08:48:20
Stevie was thinking this morning was McGregor used as a striker when on loan at Notts County? Might be wrong on that but he might be an option if needed and not starting in midfield. He has show by playing at left back he is very versatile so that might be an option for this game with Griffiths out.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Jul 2017 09:18:11
sinclair would get moved up.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Jul 2017 09:52:34
I'm sure your right Gordo just looking at what other options we have and it just goes to show the lack of options we have when 1 striker is unavailable.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Jul 2017 10:11:04
We definitely need to get another striker through the door far to light in that department.

Dafabet, Ballochi, Lh86, see you have formed your own pressure Brigade, most of the comments that appear in the statement issued by the new pressure group, seem to be lifted directly from your comments, I am Not one for General Sweeping statements, but if it is not you 3 bandidos, then you can join them on twitter, where you will be welcomed into this anti Celtic, Anti Irish "pressure group with open arms. I am now done with this topic, but just saw the press releases for this group and could not help but laugh.
P. S. if you did not know already, "lose Talk Costs Lives"
That is not an Irish Statement, but taken from numerous Second World War posters, just in case you or your friends in the new pressure group would like to read something into it that is not there.
Sorry Lads could not resist it.

This is the work of SMSM and others hostile to our club turning our own fans words against us. We must be united, let's show the scumbags that, starting on Wednesday night. United we are unique.

{Ed007's Note - It's TRIFC fans that have set it up with the backing of the press. Look how quickly the Evening Times had a story on their website about it all.}

Hahaha made me giggle there malika! More utter guff from yourself as per usual, but it gave me a chuckle anyway! The one about you not being one for sweeping statements in particular had me in stitches! 😂😂😂😂.

23 Jul 2017 20:57:11
So we show them we won't be split. Give the northern Norwegians (not ma da's people) hell on Wednesday then we have a great day out on Sunderland on saturday.

23 Jul 2017 22:03:23
Oh Bhoys you are worried, so sorry for that, sweeping statements like let them start a team in Ireland and they can all go there, are the particular forte of you guys, the GB are all nobs, is also one of your sweeping statements, both used by this group Tonight.

I hope I do not post utter guff, as I have always thought that I try to be direct reasonable and balanced in my comments on here over the yrs.
I wait for ballochi comments, don't you have his mobile number guys?
Let's hope that is the end of it. btw these are the first 2 posts in a while where you two have not posted any anti GB or Irish comments, so that is a good start.

Guys as I said in my original post on this subject, Sorry but I could not resist.
Tomorrow is Monday so I will get back to on pitch comments from then.
Lads you have no defense, they have caught you Hook, Line and Sinker, you have been used and abused by the dark side.

Agree2 2Disagree

23 Jul 2017 22:33:03
The only people gaining from what has happened recently is Rosenborg and I don't for one second believe any Celtic fan will be happy to see empty seats on Wed night. The place should be full and it should be rocking with the entire support getting right behind the Manager and Team because that's what they deserve.

Agree3 1Disagree

23 Jul 2017 22:51:32
Jesus see for being done with this topic your not half still going on about it! And no defense for what? Voicing our own opinion about the GB and not putting them up on your wee pedestal like a love sick wee boy! And it's Monday tomorrow so u'll be back to on pitch comments! Hahaha! U sure u actually remember any on pitch stuff? Would u like me to tell u who we're playing on Wednesday or will u wait til the GB release another statement letting u know it's ok to get back to football matters! 🙊🙊😂😂.

Agree2 1Disagree

24 Jul 2017 06:13:26
You guys have no idea what my thoughts are on a united Ireland , Palestine , the troubles , Scottish nationalism , poverty , or any other subjects . You also don't have any clue what I have contributed to any of these causes in the past or still do . Just because I don't think Celtic park is the place to air my opinions on these subjects and I have a crazy fantasy about people going to Celtic park with their only agenda being supporting the team and cheering them on to victory. Believe me kids you don't have a clue where I have been or what I have seen .

Agree2 1Disagree

24 Jul 2017 06:18:53
By the way I challenge you to read through my posts and give me one quote where I have said anything anti-Irish or anti- gb if you can't are you man enough to apologize for spreading lies?

i fancy johnny Hayes to score more goals than Armstrong did last season so ideally I think we should just sell him to the highest bidder with a little sell on clause. he's had one good season whose to say he won't crumble like it has in the past with players i. e lee naylor, izagiurrie and we we have a ready made replacement in oli ntcham.

Agree6 5Disagree

23 Jul 2017 19:05:07
I agree Daz that Hayes would score more, but only if he's given a decent amount of game time. I think he's hungry to show what he can do and im sure plenty will disagree but I'd start him against Rosenberg. But if Paddy comes back then he's supersub.

Agree3 0Disagree

23 Jul 2017 19:09:23
Ad play him before forrest on wed think he's more productive.

Agree3 1Disagree

23 Jul 2017 19:46:14
definetly play him before forrest. Don't get me wrong think Forrest has come on leaps and bounds since Rodgers came. But I rate Hayes a lot. I'm with you Viking Tim hope young Roberts comes home but just can't see it. If it was to happen it wouldn't be till we are in the Champs league group stages IF we make it to there.

Agree2 0Disagree

23 Jul 2017 19:50:15
I think Hayes is a really shrewd signing Mally but it's early days to be saying he's more productive than Gump who managed to keep even wee Paddy's arse warming the bench a lot of the time last season. ☘️.

Ed see the GB have issued a statement with regards the ban.

{Ed007's Note - I seen it last night. I love a good statement, me!}

Agree2 1Disagree

23 Jul 2017 15:23:36
Aye it was a belter. hopefully the GB and the club can come to some sort of peace and move on. doesn't sound as if they're going anywhere ed.

{Ed007's Note - The just need to give it a bye with all the outwardly political stuff. Why not borrow slogans for banners from Rebel songs - football in general is full of plagiarism in the songs fans sing etc - but at least make it applicable in some way to supporting Celtic. I actually thought that the Brendan Rodgers ones were quite imaginative.
There's a lot worse happened and is still happening in Scottish football than a daft banner a group of young daft lads made up and the Club stay silent on. As for the overall reaction, the way some people are going on I'm amazed there's a shortage of Priests considering the way they must have lived their lives growing up.}

Agree4 1Disagree

23 Jul 2017 16:06:54
Totally agree ridiculous over reaction. just have look at games from italy the ultras fans are mental and in spain with the catalans and the basque country its all political. football as av said earlier used to be for the working class and if you put thousands of working class people together youll get politics its been going on for years.

{Ed007's Note - And it'll go on for years. It might get even worse when you look at the mess the world's in. Look at the Russian league as well their huge racism and hooligan problems. How about this from Brazil in March there?

Ed, Talking to my physio the other day in relation to shortage of priests

When was the last time you seen a YOUNG priest? must be more than a decade for me anyway

You / anybody else came across one of late (Y)

{Ed007's Note - We had a young Priest/Chaplain from the Apostleship of the Sea talking at Mass a few weeks and he was pretty young, mid 20s I'd say.}

My cousin did his priest training had his heart set on it from a young age but gave it up after about a year just found it wasn't for him.

{Ed007's Note - My parish priest is actually my cousin, he's a few years older than me but not 50 which is still youngish for a priest these days.}

Tesla369, your question is a bit like playing games I for one didn't enjoy the banner since it was a NI team we where playing I also get it that we as a club and family had to put up with a week of bigoted stuff highlighted in the press all week about our players and club I also can see the point of the GB wanting some pay back but as we all no it not accepted in this day and age in a modern society like Scotland we as a country are trying to move on so are our families in Ireland so take the bait and bite like sharks was a let down for me personally.

we are better than that by a country mile we have enough crap too deal with without causing trouble for ourself my friend and on the union jack that made me smile it really did our club as we all know it is Irish through and through but it's a SCOTTISH CLUB aye it might be in Britain but that's a commonwealth flag ( union jack) our flag is the saltire, so no I would not want a union jack there as there are two other before it my friend and finally I live in Hamilton Scotland and class myself Scottish not British, hope that answers your question mate, just my opinion hail hail, in Brendan we trust.

Agree5 4Disagree

23 Jul 2017 21:57:22
Yes shandy but the club is "open to all"

Not just scots irish and guys like yourself who don't identify as british

The question is what if i do? Is it ok for me to have a british flag?

Being a club open to all you should accept that as well.

Agree1 2Disagree

23 Jul 2017 14:38:44
On the let's get back to football note best goal ever seen at Celtic Park.

For me, Larsson nutmegs Konterman then chips Kloss.

His hit against the oldco was a screamer tae.

Dont think its the best i've seen but Cadetes debut goal v Aberdeen was special.

Agree that Larsson goal takes some beating. Been some pretty incredible goals during that era against that lot at CP, Naka, Maloney, Lambert, Thompson, Sutton.

See the scottish criminal justice system have came down hard on the scum ajax hooligans who nearly killed a couple of celtic after attacking 4 bars last season they've dropped the case a told the dutch to deal with it cause they canny be bothered . disgraceful but to be expected.

23 Jul 2017 21:49:33
Aye quick to drop this serious assualt; but still looking for a hundred or so Daftie who scared some of their mighty Sevco pals. You couldn't make it up. Disgrace.

Down to transfer rumours, So further talks with Caulker this week?
Does anyone have any further information on Armstrongs contract situation? And also what positions does everyone think will be strengthened? I reckon first team quality CB, RW and a striker would see our squad stronger.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Jul 2017 15:54:34
CB definitely with Caulker looking like the man which is fine for me! Still think we will sign paddy Roberts but only if we qualify for champions league. Reckon if he shines there then he would be away next summer. Still need another striker but no idea who!

{Ed007's Note - I seen earlier that Guardiola has said youngsters at City will not be given much of an opportunity to play for the first team next season.}

Agree0 1Disagree

23 Jul 2017 17:06:14
I just seen that ED. Patrick himself liked a link to the article on Twitter. Surely he will come round? I'm feeling optimistic about paddy being a Celtic player. Are you anywhat confident in this ED?

{Ed007's Note - I am mate, not overly confident but I've always said I thought he would end up back here if a deal with City could be done.}
