How about poll - given the choice between either James McLean or Paddy Roberts (permanent signings) who would everyone prefer?

{Ed033's Note -

McLean or Roberts Poll

Agree1 Disagree2

04 Jan 2018 23:49:16
Paddy all day long. as much as McLean is a Tim. I'd rather sign John McLean from diehard.

{Ed007's Note - What an absolutely stupid and pointless comparison, McClean and Roberts play in different positions and are completely different types of player. McClean's a more rounded midfielder who plays on the left and Roberts is an out and right winger who has never shown that he can track back and do the defensive work McClean does.
A better question would be should Celtic have signed McClean or Hayes in the summer or should Celtic have bought McClean for £1.5 million in 2015 rather than give Kris Commons a 2 years extension?}

He's not even anywhere close to that good.

{Ed007's Note - OK then, you're probably best stick to watching films with balding middle aged men wearing a simmit.}

Totally agree ed McLean would walk it up here he's a completely different player as u say to paddy. daft poll imo.

05 Jan 2018 09:18:37
Pointless poll as had been said. I'll pass thanks. What really pisses me off though is people taking the boys political beliefs into account and being worried about a PR disaster. What a load of totally politically correct utter pish.

05 Jan 2018 09:56:49
James Mcclean is a winger/ attacking midfielder that has scored a total of 11 goals in 160 EPL games. so not far off 2 goals a season. He's pish. end of.

{Ed001's Note - is he that good? He can't shoot, tackle, pass or cross. He has no intelligence nor discipline on the pitch. His sole redeeming feature is that he has pace, unless you count hard work, as he does work hard but personally I think that should be something every player is expected to do as a bare minimum and not be considered a plus point.}

05 Jan 2018 10:46:26
Bhoy wonder my comment didn't relate to his ability or lack of but to the politically correct pish that some of our supporters seem to think is relevant and a concern in terms of being a PR disaster for the club. Different club and supporters from the one I grew up watching if that's the case.

05 Jan 2018 10:36:50
Just a note:
the idea behind the poll was not a like for like positional comparison.
It was meant to be a straight forward ‘who would you want to see in the hoops (permanently) ?

05 Jan 2018 07:51:08
Never seen Rab C Nesbitt playing. Might be worth a punt ed?
Oh, you meant the other guy from Die Hard lol.

05 Jan 2018 08:04:16
Come on let’s not be having polls on here! Leave that to the tribute act! More ‘polls’ than Lewis Hamilton over there! 🤣🤣🤣 paddy on top form any day of the week but like the other lads say theyr 2 completely different players! Just a question ED is there any actual interest in James Mclean lol!

{Ed007's Note - It's all just speculation for now mate. McClean's available and he recently done an interview with the Celtic View about how much he would love to play for us and people are putting 2 + 2 together. It's a possibility but I wouldn't hold my breath on it happening just yet.}

001 while we have your attention I did say to you a while back both VVD and big Fraser would improve your team if your lot would have listened you would have saved yourselves £60 million plus?

PS Have you solved that goal keeping problem yet? :-P (Y)

{Ed001's Note - Fraser Forster is the only keeper in the Prem worse than Mignolet. He still can't move his feet. Crap keeper.

As for VVD I would rather we had signed a better defender, as that is his weakness. Good footballer but not a good defender, when we have plenty of footballers, just a lack of quality defenders.

Not sure why you felt the need to hijack a thread to have this convo. You could have quite easily just started a fresh one and left this one for the discussion of McLean that it should be for, so I will ask Ed007 to delete any further comment on here taking away from the actual discussion it should be for.

Is McLean a European level winger? Not in the slightest, he is a downgrade on the players you currently have, so why bring him in? Makes no sense. Yes he will be good enough to win the SPFL, but you already have those players so it is just stupidity to bring him in. If he was English or Welsh not one person on here would be calling for him to sign. He has struggled to hold down a regular first team place at relegation strugglers, he is not Sinclair who was a regular in a midtable team then struggled at the top team.}

It’s not often I agree with you ed01, but I do with you assessment of McLean, think he is a very average player, trying to work his way to Celtic, just my opinion though, and have been wrong a couple of times before 👍.

05 Jan 2018 13:58:39
He’s a downgrade on Johnny Hayes?

05 Jan 2018 14:35:00
Aye fair enough 001, Just not seen you on here for a while and wanted to highlight what I already thought was a good fit for Liverpool

The only keeper worse than Mignolet in the EPL is Gomez @ Watford IMO Danny Ward has to be the best keeper @ Liverpool?

{Ed001's Note - Forster is the worst, at least Gomez can play well at times, he is just incredibly inconsistent. On his day he is sensational, while Forster on his day is below average, he is just a big lump who takes up a lot of the goal.

I like Ward but Klopp doesn't.

As for the rest, no worries, just don't want to get threads taken too far from the actual point of them.}

05 Jan 2018 23:15:40
Klopp won't be at Liverpool for too long, so Ward might be at 'pool soon enough .
Klopp seems to be a nearly man, a couple of wins and just when the fans thinks they are getting somewhere defensive sleeping costs them badly .
I will be amazed if he is still there at Christmas.
