Decent bit of business Brendan done for Liverpool signs coutinho for 8mill and they sell for 142mill nearly as good as the king signing for us.

{Ed007's Note - If that was the case we would have got about £12 million for Larsson instead of him buggering off to Barca for nothing and with a £1 million bonus that the Club promised and which they then got the fans to cover with an embarrassing and cringey testimonial.}

Agree2 Disagree3

Spot on ed.

{Ed007's Note - The way Larsson left has always left a bad taste in my mouth when it comes to him.}

09 Jan 2018 16:08:47
Ed, Can I ask you know how managers get a cut of a profitable fee would BR still be entitled to something from that given he signed him or will Klopp benefit? (Y)

{Ed007's Note - Rodgers won't be due anything mate.}

Did he just let his contract run down ed trying to remember.

{Ed007's Note - He had a year on his deal and told the board he intended to see that out and go back to Sweden to play for Helsingborg - Barca and Man Utd both tried to buy him that summer - but the board offered him £1 million bonus to see out his contract with us. He saw out his contract, the board got the fans to pay the bonus and Larsson buggered off to Barca. I've just always felt there was something not quite right about all of it, especially when guys like Petrov signed a new deal to make sure we got top dollar for them.}

Cheers ed definitely a bit off.

{Ed007's Note - Yep.}

09 Jan 2018 18:48:08
Come on ed, buggered off?, the guy deserved a chance ti win something in europe surely after 7 years with us, scoring two world class headers in seville and missing out, voted second greatest celt ever, think the farewell match was a good thing too n saw him cry real tears that day,

{Ed007's Note - So why not leave the previous year when the Club could have got serious money for him and why say he was going back to Sweden when it looks like that was never his intention. If you were one of the mugs that was gullible enough to attend his embarrassing testimonial then that was up to you. How do you know his tears were real, were they selling bottles of them at the game?}

Personally I thought Larsson was the exception and earned the right to leave for nothing. That's my recollection of the player leaving at the time who is the greatest ever Celt for me in half a century of watching your team and mine.

Tbf Larsson was one of the worlds best strikers and gave us 7 of his peak years. Imo he was entitled to leave for free.

much rather 7 years from a world class player, than 2 years and then leave for England.

Even if he had left for 12 million we wouldn’t have seen any of it so I was happy with one last year of henrik. For me that was priceless. The guy could force feed me soor plooms and it still wouldn’t leave a sour taste in my mouth.

09 Jan 2018 23:45:22
Henrik larsson what a guy top class on and off the pitch could have left us many times choose to stay thanks for the unforgettable memories king of kings.

Aye ed i attended the farewell game, and glad i did too say goodbye to a legend of the club who i think in todays world showed loyalty to the club and fans, bottles of tears? 😂😂i would have bought them too😂🇮🇪✌️.

{Ed007's Note - I am SO happy for you! I'm sure I've got one of his old sweaty headbands somewhere, £250 and you can have it for a w@nk-rag.}

10 Jan 2018 12:41:40
I made the wife wear a Celtic kit a henke false face with dreadlocks and head band greatest few minutes of my life then afterwards watched the 6 2 game ;)

10 Jan 2018 13:45:52
Hawl ed your beginning to sound like wan ae them😂😉.

{Ed007's Note - Really? I thought it was 'them' that just accepted getting ripped off by their club and players saying the right things.}

Surely though, you need to count money a player earns you from world class performances. Larsson and co put us back on the map in Europe. Stop 10 in a row and make Celtic the dominant side in Scotland again.

Yet you would throw a huff over a transfer fee his performances paid for 10 times over?

I love a purist as much as the next guy but you may need some kalms haha.
