Ok guys a wee debate.
After Brendan's comments about Dembele, I was talking to my Celtic Pools mate, we were both of the opinion that we should tell Dembele he will be our main striker in the Europa League, however many games that entails. Also Brendan should say to him that if he wants a really big club coming in for him, the way to do it is score goals and play well in these european games, then come the summer when he gets his big club move, he goes with the thanks and blessing of the Celtic fans and Peter Lawwell who will earn a big fat bonus after we sell Moussa for £30m plus 15% sell on fee.

He should know already that he'll be the main striker - but only if he deserves to be. You can't keep playing the way he has and expect to keep the jersey with Griffiths and Edouard waiting in the wings.

We find ourselves in a difficult position having 3 strikers and playing a system that only requires 1. Dembele hasn't looked good this season whether that is down to injuries and his head being in a mess i do not know. Do we play him at the expense of Griffiths and Edouard in the hope he finds form. We can say goodbye to anything over £20m if he does not find form that is for sure. How can we assess Edouard properly unless we play him. I like him and i think he can be a long term success at the club but i have my doubts about the club shelling out £7m based on the odd game here and there. We also have Griffiths to keep happy, a player i rate very highly and as i said yesterday i would be happy going into next season with Griffiths, Edouard, and Aitchison as back up. I'm probably one of the very few that would accept £20m-£25m with a sell on clause immediately for Dembele. That is a huge amount of money. I love Dembele i would also love to see him back on form but sadly i do not see that happening and my opinion is totally based on his injuries and the mess his head is currently in. If he does stay and works hard he can get back to where he was. If he leaves he will leave with my best wishes. The Hat-Trick against the Zombies and his performance against Man City will never be forgotten. To cut a long story short my head is in just as much a mess thinking about what is best for us and him at this current time.

Stating the obvious in that post are u not? Brendan shouldn’t need to tell him a bloody thing! He knows what his job is and he’s well payed to do it! See this not mentally ready Shoite to play against Brechin, really boils my blood! He’s payed by our club to do a job, and that job is to score goals! If he doesn’t feel he’s ready to do that then move him on for as much as we can get and get someone in who wants to play for us! There’s not a chance in hell we’ll get 30 million pound for him either! He hasn’t kicked his arse this season! And I know he’s been injured but apart from a couple of games here and there he’s been bang average! So Brendan shouldn’t need to go having Cosy chats and telling him what he wants to here! Do your job and get out on that park and give 100 % until that day comes u move to another club! Just getting sick of hearing this now honestly! I do rate the boy but we’ve lost bigger and better in the past and not done to bad!

Lh I couldn’t have put it better 👍.

Just becoming a pain in the arse now WB! Lol. i love watching moussa bang in the goals for us just as much as everybody else but the fact is he’s been miles off top form! We’ve been just as good for him as he has for us to! Gave him the platform to show what he can do in the CL! Just feel it’s looking like the big man wants to move on, and if that’s the case we get as big a fee as we can, wish him all the best and move on! But talk of 30 million plus 15% sell on is pure fantasy IMO! If we could get 20 I’d bite there hand off.

in total agreement LH. I can't get my head around all these figures as I'm still in awe of how much we got for Dalglish or how much we paid for Moravcik or Larson. you could get a full squad for 20-30 million. The only thing that helps me understand that we could get 20-30 million for Dembele is the fact that Morelos of the dead is valued at 10 million.

22 Jan 2018 15:46:33
Who's valuing morelos at 10 million? 😂 does anyone think they'd knock back 4? Who has morelos scored against to push his value up? Even ciftci scored against us before he got his move.

{Ed007's Note - There's been an agent (Jonne Lindblom) sounding out English Championship sides about Morelos and the fee's £2.5 million.}

22 Jan 2018 16:31:17
2.5 million? No way they will get that. Moult is a better player than him and scored in bigger games.

22 Jan 2018 16:39:01
If he's valued £10m then under the Barry McKay formula they'll accept £833,333.

22 Jan 2018 16:47:11
Reckon they would accept £1.2m with a 1% sell on fee 😂 Zombies.

22 Jan 2018 16:47:49
Dembele is only a young bhoy! How would half of you cope if every second article written about Celtic was about you and 10 different clubs interested in you and an agent on top of that whispering in your ear saying this club and that club want you! it’s not black and white, when your in your early 20’s your heads up your arse with out having all that on your shoulders.

22 Jan 2018 17:07:22
What id have given to have had that kind of pressure taking home £20,000+ a week at that age. More like him to use the interest as a boost to his confidence. Sorry but i find it ridiculous that his head isn't right to take the field against Brechin. infact i find it embarrassing.

22 Jan 2018 17:15:16
@LH86 my point was we have a potentially great player in Moussa in our squad, who came to us for the next stage of his career, I have no problem with that. But he is no good to us, sitting on the bench or moping in the stand, he is only 20 and probably has had his head turned by promises of big salaries and sign on fees, I know I would be if I was promised treble my salary. No, if Moussa needs a cuddle then Rodgers should do just that, as that what good man management is all about.
If we can get him back playing and scoring goals, then in the summer his value will increase again.
Talking of values, or fake ones in sevco's case, I had this argument with my 2 ex bear pals, their club look at Celtic and copy everything we do, they see us buying cheaply and selling for a big profit and they want the same. Only difference is, Celtic have signed talented up and coming young players who will command a bigger transfer fee. Sevco, just put a daft figure on a player and HOPE a club comes near their valuation. Their players have NO added on value, except in their daft club's imagination.

Tierney was asked about Man Utd interest and his response was that he was flattered but would be happy to spend the rest of his career at Celtic. He used it as a postitive. Dembele should do the same.

22 Jan 2018 18:57:39
Dembele's scared of an injury stalling any move. I was hoping he had a Stormer of a second half of the season and maybe making it into the French squad for the World Cup but I don't think it will happen if he's not 100% giving his all. Good luck to the lad whatever happens. I would take 20 million and a sell on clause this window.

Personally ad make griff the number 1 striker till end of season as long as he's playing well.
