Seriously hoping that the rumours of a big bid for James McLean are the ramblings of someone still drunk from hogmanay celebrations.

Also, strange That, given tiredness, BR has not given Eboue more games. Big outlay for that boy and it would make sense to get him out on the pitch.

John, Why the shock at the rumoured signing of James McLean?

02 Jan 2018 11:22:21
He's not good enough. That should do it.

02 Jan 2018 11:30:14
Fair dos if that's your opinion MP.

02 Jan 2018 11:46:32
I think he's good enough. Martin O Neill picks him in every squad, he plays most games for his country.

02 Jan 2018 11:49:50
I do t care who picks him. He's no better than what we have. In fact he's nowhere near Roberts who I hope we buy.

{Ed007's Note - He's a far better player than Hayes though and plays in a different position than Roberts.}

Decent player Mclean but with the crazy prices going about down there I just don’t feel he’s worth what they would ask! And I think people get a wee bit blinded by the fact the boys a big celtic fan! Money could be spent better in other positions.

{Ed007's Note - WBA spent about £1.5 million on McClean and are trying to punt him. They're in no position to ask for crazy money for an unwanted player with 18 months left on his deal.}

02 Jan 2018 11:52:19
Think that says it all YMB. 👍.

02 Jan 2018 12:05:36
50 plus caps for ROI and half a dozen for the North and he's not good enough to put pressure on Sinclair at Celtic after last weeks performance? It's all about opinions I suppose MP.

{Ed007's Note - MP doesn't want us to sign McClean in case his views and opinions upset the press and the Ibrox Klan.}

Isnt Roberts crocked . Youd be sure of a full shift from Mc Clean . Busy and not shy of a tackle . With Rogic, Roberts our Armstrong playing poorly, Hayes out, Sinclair poor Mc Clean at right price could ignite a bit of needed passion and has experience playing against international players . Worth a punt if money is right .

02 Jan 2018 12:11:46
I was there Ed 👍.

{Ed007's Note - The thing is, I think McClean is a good solid player with plenty of EPL experience and at 28 is just hitting his prime. As a Celtic supporter you know he'll go that extra mile on the park and will bust a gut for us. If we could get him for £1 -2 million it would be a good bit of business.}

02 Jan 2018 12:29:16
You're spot on for me TTTS. 👍.

02 Jan 2018 12:36:30
McClean would be a star for us goals, ability, work rate and heart and if the majority of this bigoted wee country didnae like it then fck em.

02 Jan 2018 13:10:36
Vinnie it totally astounds me that an international player who can provide cover and put pressure on a player whose went a bit off the boil recently and has had nearing 60 caps for his country who has declared he'd love to play for Celtic and who could be available for around £2.5m wouldn't be a welcome signing. If it's his political opinions that some people find objectionable I'm even more astounded as I've never heard him say or do anything offensive other than express his own entirely understandable personal beliefs and opinions albeit that they are beyond the comprehension of the as ever ignorant English and bigoted Scottish Media. I make the distinction deliberately as one is ignorant and the other is bigoted. Would he make us better? In my humble opinion the answer is yes.

02 Jan 2018 12:59:51
Agree ED that if we got him for 1-2 Million it would be good business, and like I said he’s a decent player! But I think WBA could get more for him from some English team willing to spend stupid money! Do u think Rodgers would fancy him anyway ED?

{Ed007's Note - I don't know if Rodgers would be interested but he ticks a lot of the boxes e.g. he's available, he plays in a position we need strengthened in, Rodgers knows him and McClean wants to play for us.
Also it's difficult to sell a player to a club when the player doesn't want the move - IF Celtic are officially interested the player could simply refuse any other move so forcing WBA to sell him to us. I don't think WBA would stand in his way, as long as they get a fee and probably more importantly free up wages to bring in new faces themselves.}

Spot on JFP he’s a worker and he wouldn’t let us down we would get everything outa him in every game he plays and he’s the perfect age. Big deal he didn’t toe the party line and do what everyone else expected makes me like him even more shows he’s a man that can stand up and make his own decisions. Get him signed.

02 Jan 2018 13:35:31
Agreed CB 👍.

02 Jan 2018 15:38:07
My mate is a West Brom fan and says he is arguabley there best player, but this is faulted by the fact his mistakes and decision making is bad. He said if he played for West Brom like he did for country he wouldn’t be first on the team sheet. Hard worker and makes a lot of effort on and off the pitch. As ED says he ticks all the boxes and must be signed now if ever. He would be an outstanding player for us and would show his real ability playing in the hoops. A fast strong winger, something we’ve not had since big Samaras.

James MC Clean is a model professional footballer . He is for ever seeking out and helping those in need . He is a great team player with a hunger to work hard for his team . James would be a team leader who would spring even more into extra activity when his fellow players would feel jaded or tired for what ever reason .

James would walk on glass from WBA to Glasgow to play for Celtic.
