Just reading some of the posts on here today, most negative, after a 5-0 win. I ask you.
Let's talk about the game yesterday first, I read that some posters thought we were "pedestrian" well our "pedestrian" start resulted in us passing the ball for almost 2 minutes without an opposing player touching it then ending in a well worked goal.
Also remember it was Brechin City we were playing, so players were hardly going to go helter skelter against such lowly opposition. No, the team did what it had to do, play some nice football and reach next round of cup, also remember we now have 3 games in a week coming up so we had to think of this also.
Now to the almost panic in some posters over us signing anybody. That is the operative word, we do not want to sign just "anybody" to appease the supporters, we need better players than we have at the moment in certain positions, and they take some finding. I, too in the past, have mumped and moaned at our board's lack of ambition sometimes. But I think we really need to trust Brendan and Lawwell to bring is the right players we need,
If no players are signed by 31 January, then we can all mump and moan. But this Tim says, be patient for in the next 10 days I expect new arrivals hail hail.

{Ed007's Note - That's far too positive for here, Tim - it'll never catch on!}

ha ha ha ED007, ok here is something negative.
What did you make of Rodgers comments over Dembele?
Surely he should have kept his thoughts private to within the dressing room. I got impression Moussa and his agent were happy to wait until the bigger teams came calling, and unless his agent has had a massive offer wages wise for Dembele, I think Brendan should just play him and try and get him back to the player he was last season, then sell in the summer.

{Ed007's Note - I think people are making a mountain out a molehill. Of course constant speculation can put players off - just look at Aberdeen when TRIFC were openly courting their manager in the MSM, McInnes wasn't even taking their training for a couple of days - so he was quite right in what he said.
People seem to be ignoring that Rodgers also said Dembele was fine and there was no issues or problems. I still expect MD to be a Celtic player come next month.}

I posted down the page that currently he is nowhere near the player he was last season through one thing and another and it would be best for both him and Celtic if he concentrated on getting fully fit and back to his best and see what happens in the summer.
After all, what difference would another 5 months or so have on the career of so young a talent who can do a lot better than Brighton.

Ed I c Musonda got some game time which is good he's ready for more can u honestly see him getting Loan out to us over a host of EPL clubs? And is there anything in this rumour about us looking at the German CH?

{Ed007's Note - We've got as good a chance as anyone regarding Musonda or we wouldn't have wasted so much time on him. What German CH?}

Nevar Subotic.

{Ed007's Note - He's Serbian. I think people are just putting 2 + 2 together and coming up with 5. Saint-Etienne - who have already brought in Yann M'Vila and Paul-Georges Ntep this month - have already made two offers to Subotic and are expecting an answer on Monday or Tuesday.}

Oh well that's that then 10 days till it's over fingers crossed it will end well.

{Ed007's Note - Keep the faith young man ;)

Once a bhoy, Dembele needs games and lots of them. We need to play him every week or sell him. No point having him on the bench. Play him or punt him.

21 Jan 2018 17:34:03
Will do HH.

{Ed007's Note - (yes)

21 Jan 2018 17:52:08
ED one more do u think there was anything in the boy at Dundee being left out squad yesterday or not.

{Ed007's Note - Yeah I do. I expect Celtic to step up their interest in the coming days but Dundee are doing their best to fend off any offers.}

21 Jan 2018 18:12:32
Could Celtic use Scott Allan be used in negotiations or would that be too much?

{Ed007's Note - I'd hope so, Rich but I don't know if that's part of the plan.}

21 Jan 2018 18:49:40
Well we will c apparently Allan played well so that might sway in our fav if that's the way to go.

{Ed007's Note - I was told a while back that Dundee were adamant they didn't want to lose Hendry before the summer and they would be looking at a loan like St Mirren with Morgan but it didn't twig with me until a while after that that couldn't happen with Allan already being there on loan from us. One way round that would be to make the Allan deal permanent this window but I'd be surprised if that happened - even though I think it would be a good idea to ship him out any way we can for as long as possible, permanently would be just great.}
