Here guys I have a question for you.
If you had to choose between signing a creative player in the mold of lubo or naka
Or a right good CB which would you choose any Why?

Agree0 Disagree3

creative player for me with good vision and passing ability that is able to make killer passes and wants to do so instead of trying to get all the glory themselves by scoring too many times I end up shouting at the telly when there is a clear-cut chance at a good through ball splitting the defence and some of our players either don't have the vision and ability or are just greedy and try running it in themselves also the best form of defence is attack as they say.

{Ed007's Note - I'm not saying he's the answer to that problem but I thought Edouards's ball through to Lustig to set up Ntcham's goal was sublime.}

21 Jan 2018 19:37:08
The former for me: I'd rather see the bhoys play slick, exciting football be robust, hard to score against, and safe. I think we ought to be able to get a solid--if not right good--centre-back in without spending a fortune, but the flair players are never cheap.

21 Jan 2018 19:37:39
Kev we need a centre half big time we couldn't knit one out of the 3 or 4 we're meant to have who are all one step up from Effe.

21 Jan 2018 19:46:19
Both please.

The team should always be built from the back, Celtic should have enough finances to do this, Celtic should have ample of players available in the first team, if not then the development team players should be ready to step into the first team, they should easily win the spl, even with injuries, if not there's something wrong with the set up.

Euorpe: Celtic should qualify each year and be content with the run that they get and the games they get and enjoy the games we have in Europe. because we won't go buying 8 mil + players. Europe can be done and its been proven. we don't need quality at the back, we can't leaked goals and make basic mistakes. hail hail. They are doing a good job, winning games while other teams won't play them football. the game we love has changed, even over the last couple of years. oh to be young again. lol. hail double hail.

21 Jan 2018 19:54:22
In all honesty it is 2 areas that need to be addressed so we should be looking to fill both. A Lubo/ Naka and a Paul Elliot would be a dream. Looking forward to the week ahead.

Ed that was a lovely ball through.

{Ed007's Note - I actually think Edouard has more to his game than Dembele who is deadly in the box and is your old fashioned No.9 style like Lukaku or even Sutton/Hartson was whereas Edouard seems to have more ability when coming deep and running with the ball.}

21 Jan 2018 20:19:02
Ed I've got mixed feelings about Dembelle. If I was offered anything like the cash that was getting spoken of last year I'd bite your hand off.

{Ed007's Note - I'd be delighted with anything in the £20-25 million bracket and a 10% sell on clause.}

21 Jan 2018 20:40:08
I agree Ed, Edouard also seems happy to run himself ragged to open up space. Does a lot of good work in running channels. Dembele did a bit more of that last season, dunno if he's just not got his heart in it now. At the moment I'd give Edouard a good run and he'll score plenty. Don't agree with rotating strikers as the form player will want to score every game.

{Ed007's Note - Between his injury problems, stop/start season and the constant transfer speculation Dembele looks like he's playing with the weight of the world on his shoulders. An old friend of my dad's I talk to at Chapel thinks that Dembele looks like he is scared to push himself in case of another injury which if you watch him the last few months is possible.
I totally agree with you about Edouard, he looks like he has a raw talent and he's just turned 20. He'll need to get a run in the team to prove he's worth a £7 million outlay though but if Rodgers thinks he's worth that just now I won't argue, he's definitely going to be a cracking player in years to come imo.}

21 Jan 2018 21:22:44
Totally agree regarding Edouard. A good run in the team and he will score for fun. Who knows £7m might turn out to be a bargain. I like his attitude aswel.

21 Jan 2018 22:39:17
I read or someone posted that Dembele is psychologically scarred to push himself as he’s worried about his hamstring going again and it can be a common thing with those type of injuries.

{Ed007's Note - It was actually George McCluskey's uncle that said it to me, CB.}

21 Jan 2018 22:45:44
Ye but JFP1888 we need a creator as well.
I my opinion we have never really replace Naka
Truth be told no one goes to football to watch a CB.
We go to see guys like jinky dalglish mcstay lubo larsson and naka. Guys that excite us. Guys that get us off our seats.
That would be my preference.

21 Jan 2018 22:48:44
I think if we get £20m for dembele, we will be doing well, I think domestically a number 10 type to really hammer teams most weeks, however for Europe, I think centre half and maybe a right back ( I do like Ralston though) , is needed more.

21 Jan 2018 22:50:38
If we sold him last summer we could expect that kind of figure ed but a think his form this year will probably put a bit of doubt in clubs heads. As someone said earlier it would be best to keep him till the summer n give him a chance to rediscover last year's form.

22 Jan 2018 10:51:21
In relation to what do we do first, a creative player or a CB?

If you are in a boat and there are two or three holes in it, you don't use all the wood to block up one hole, you will still sink.

We should have the money to buy enough god for all the holes and to leave one, or two then the end result is the same. We had been talking about becoming a recognised CL team, and by we I mean Lawell and Rogers. This doesn't happen without investment in a better calibre of player than we have now.

Lets fix the fecking boat!

I agree with what has been said here about Edouard. Looks like he has more strings to his bow than Dembele, looks more comfortable around the whole of the final third. Good, selfless movement. He was actually unlucky not to be end of that move where Ntcham scored as well. Of we got 25 for Dembele I'd gladly see 7 spent on Edouard and the rest spent on a centre half and an attacking mid.
