is Odsonne Edouard worth the £7 Million replacement for Dembele?
At only 19 years old 🤔.

There’s not a chance we will break our transfer record for this kid. Unless he has an unbelievable second half of the season however I really don’t see him getting much of an opportunity if the Mouse and Griff are still at the club beyond January. I reckon he will head back to Paris at the end of the season and will be extremely surprised if we don’t have an alternative replacement lined up for Dembele for the summer.

Really can’t say on how much I’ve seen. Don’t think anyone can for sure. At the moment I’d have to be dubious. That said, it he was playing for Burnley, he’d probably be worth double that!

13 Jan 2018 22:21:24
Yeah EPL players are certainly valued treble compared to the SPL,
But what about paddy Roberts at £7 Mill too?
Serious money if we’re to progress in Europe but is it enough?

Celtic won't spend 7M on a prospect. 700,000 mibees. He hasn't done much wrong the lad, but he's miles away from that kind of money. What did we pay for Ntcham? It is a really odd contract that--as if the buy out clause was there to deter us . . . .

In all fairness is MD getting near the PSG starting 11 anytime soon? What would the move offer him.

13 Jan 2018 23:32:36
I was suggesting Edouard will be heading back to PSG at the end of the season Phlip not Dembele.

14 Jan 2018 00:34:33
Watch his movement, give him good service and he'll score goals, he'll improve his finishing over time and I think if he gets a run in the team when Rogic and Roberts are back he'll show his talent.

I would be surprised if we spent £7m in total to fix the defence and team in general. I hope Im wrong, but to think we would seend £7m on the lad seems a non starter. he looks to have something about him, but is raw. He is only 19 and I believe he will develop, but £7m with our form seems a bit much.

14 Jan 2018 11:54:21
When I heard the fee of 7 million was agreed I thought we had got a proper player.

Seen nowt that sugggests he would be worth 1 million never mind 7.

Like you say Celtic won’t spend to improve and will continue to sign projects and cheap older versions.

I disagree and think EO is worth the money. He hasn't had a run of games and every time he plays he is a threat, given a run of games we would definitely see his effectiveness and he will score goals for fun.
I think it would be less of a risk now after him coming over and understanding the set up how BR wants him to play and the culture and language and what it means to play for the club. Another reason for his slower progress is learning to speak the lingo. In other countries they buy players and don't automatically put them into the starting line up to allow them time to settle and then kick on. This seems to be the pattern that BR is taking and good on him.
Too many players with seemingly good attributes and qualities have come to Scotland and been expected to handle all that immediately and then have failed to make the impact, players with proven experience also. This is just a clever way of ensuring there are no obstacles and to give them the best opportunity of success. We have an abundance of talent just waiting to explode into the first team players we could never afford if they had matured elsewhere. I think we have exciting times ahead but truly need to sort out our defence. HH.

I think even if we had spent £7m on Dembele, I would be questioning it. Don't think we'll pay that for a replacement.

14 Jan 2018 19:43:48
Not for me, not yet at least. I'll reserve my opinion until the end of the season. He may prove himself to be worth that, its really up to the lad himself.

15 Jan 2018 00:14:57
I am quite certain if Brendan Rodgers thinks he is worth the £7-£8 m and if the player is happy to sign for Celtic he will be signed .
Too many of our supporters seem to be only to happy to put our club down and try to cast doom amonst other fans .
