ED007 what are your thoughts on Rogic and Armstrong extending their contracts. Firstly on Rogic, seen an article which said "Rogic should wait until after world cup to consider his options" although I like the Australian, I feel he misses too many games, and will miss probably all of our CL qualifiers next season already, also he will probably come back tired which makes him more prone to picking up more injuries. For me punt him for a decent price if he has a decent world cup.
Fans will say who will replace him? Well we have Ryan Christie coming back after his season at Aberdeen, give him a chance.
As for Armstrong, on his day, he brings energy and class to our team, but these days are getting few and far between, also he seems to want to try England so again I am for getting a decent price for him also.
Just my thoughts ED007, interested to hear yours and everyone else.

{Ed007's Note - The contract Rogic turned down was supposedly heavily performance based and if Celtic continue down that road with him then he will leave. There's no question over his ability but his reliability is a real cause for concern.
Unless Armstrong has had a massive change of heart since last summer then he will be for the off as well.}

Looks like one of them is reading your reply Ed, going with the dislike or could it be an obsessed lurker? I have always had the opinion from the moment I started folowing Celtic. If a player has been offered a contract and decides against it then it's adios amigo, thanks for your services and good luck. Celtic will survive.

{Ed007's Note - I don't pay any attention to kids or even adults acting like kids pressing a thumbs up or down, Rab. It just shows again how sad and pathetic some posters are, especially when you know who it is... ;)

Ha Ed, they don't even realise you have the computery thingammy whatsits to detect them! It's always funny to see when you out a saddo!

{Ed007's Note - :-D

03 Apr 2018 16:26:35
i think it will come down to what is available for them elsewhere rab, its well known both their agents are hawking them about, both guys say they are happy but you never know, im getting the vibe that armstrong has been tapped up by someone, i hope they both stay both are first choice starters for me.

03 Apr 2018 17:39:37
Jb67 I don't think Armstrong ever seen his future in Scotland to be honest. Even from his time at Utd I remember him saying how he'd love to play in England and Germany.

03 Apr 2018 18:10:08
he always spoke about playing in germany.

03 Apr 2018 18:35:30
Yes Kev83., I would love to play for Celtic but as I am 68 the chances are my chances are gone . Similarly Armstrong may want to play in the top leagues for top teams in England or Germany but if those teams don't want him, he may have to rough it in Glasgow with Celtic.

ED007 and Big Rab sorry but both of you have a long long long way to go to even come near MY thumbs down totals lol.

{Ed007's Note - You're welcome to them Tim, I find it pretty creepy, and sad, that so many people troll the site just to click a thumbs down. Do you think they sit and feel all chuffed with themselves after it?}

03 Apr 2018 19:43:52
Thumbs were made for play station's, Xbox's and mobile phones Ed lol

As you said it's really sad that they think there could be so many out there clicking that button 👍.

{Ed007's Note - I still use my index finger to type texts lol

03 Apr 2018 19:44:23
ED007 I actually posted a joke response to this many months ago, yes I think they actually do get a kick out of thumbs down, myself and I am sure yourself would respect them more if they disagree with any post, come on and tell us why they disagree, at least that takes courage which is maybe what they lack.

{Ed007's Note - That's why they're called trolls, Tim.}

03 Apr 2018 19:44:27
There are teams in England that would take Armstrong. Of that I have no doubt. But that wasn't really my point OMC.
My point was that Armstrong doesn't see his long term future in Scotland. Think that was pretty evident last summer.
I think he's the type of player that sees football as just a job as well so will eventually chase the money.

03 Apr 2018 20:09:45
He doesn't strike me as money orientated Kev, but accept he has itchy feet.

03 Apr 2018 22:34:00
Am pretty sure he said he wasn't a football fan growing up, it's just something he's good at.

03 Apr 2018 23:29:55
Ignorance is great, you can post anything and nobody knows whether you are right or wrong . When I say ignorance, I refer to the fact that none of us are Privvy to the details of any Celtic players contract talks . It is possible that Armstrong's protracted stalling over his contract extension was testing the water to see who and what would be interested in him . The one year extension maybe came about with the same thinking .
At any rate apart from his performance on the 31st March against Ross County he has done nothing this season to cause me any loss of sleep should Celtic not be good enough for him.

04 Apr 2018 00:14:04
People talking about losing maybe tom rogic or/ and armstrong? well the answer is a man called john mcginn who frankly would walk to glasgow to play for us and is the best midfielder in scotland bar none.

04 Apr 2018 13:07:19
I have clicked a few thumbs up because I agree with a comment. I always try to give a comment when I click a thumbs down. If you disagree, that's fine but at least defend your reason. Like everyone has said, some people just click thumbs down regardless.

04 Apr 2018 13:31:52
With the thumbs up I would like people to be identified. So you can dig them up. :)

04 Apr 2018 13:55:15
Tysonmike . You must be a great Celtic supporter who has extra powers in that you can judge a player from another club as the best midfielder in Scotland .
From what I have seen in games against Celtic this season Mc Ginn would be lucky to get on the bench .
I suppose some Celtic fans have a habit of boasting up midfielders from other Scottish clubs and continue to berate Celtic for the following 10 yrs . MaCarthy was the "best midfielder" in Scotland went to England and became more& more ordinary as time went on.

{Ed007's Note - You must have missed the game at Celtic Park in September when McGinn bossed the whole midfield - granted Brown was missing through injury - and scored both Hibs goals in the 2-2 draw.}

04 Apr 2018 13:51:56
It's looking likely Armstrong will go in the summer. A clear out is on the cards hopefully with Biton, Sviachenko, Alan, Ciftci, Jozo, Boyata to start with.

04 Apr 2018 13:54:52
hes already at the biggest club in the world old chris.

04 Apr 2018 13:56:55
the initials uj spring to mind tim lol.

04 Apr 2018 14:33:21
I didn't miss it, more like I forgot it, but how many times has McGinn played against Celtic and only one decent performance to show for it .
We weren't at our best in the November December game charge so even though I admit he was good against us, many of our team were feeling the effects of two hard seasons one after the other with only a 3 week break for our best players.

{Ed007's Note - He played really well in the 2-2 draw at Easter road too, so that's 2 good performance out of 4 games.}
