Tim Krul out of contract next month, quite like the idea of him and Bain fighting it out for the No 1 shirt next season and beyond.

Agree0 Disagree6

11 May 2018 12:44:17
No sure he's any better than Gordon stan.

11 May 2018 13:10:47
Good experience and at 31 could get 3 good years out of him Mally. Gordon is a good shot stopper but i am tired of watching him put us under pressure by dinking the ball over the defence and more often than not to opposing player or out of the park. Would play Bain ahead of him every day of the week.

{Ed007's Note - I'd play Bain over Gordon and Krul any day of the week, Stan and after only playing 3 games all season I'm hoping Krul will only move to be a No.1 and I really hope that's not going to be at Celtic.}

11 May 2018 13:33:40
So you think Bain has a good chance of being No 1 next season Ed? I'd be more than happy with that.

{Ed007's Note - I don't see why not but it would be a bit of a gamble, I'd rather see a a new No.1 brought in and Bain to push him for the starting spot. With Gordon injuring his knee again he really needs to look after himself and think about his long term health this summer.}

11 May 2018 14:09:23
I'd rather someone like a Ward or Gunn to compete with Bain. I don't want any player that's happy as a number 2.

11 May 2018 15:02:43
How does anyone know he is happy to be a No 2.

11 May 2018 15:11:39
I'm not sure about Bain being our no.1 to be honest. I'm hoping that there is another 'keeper coming in and Bain will be back up.

11 May 2018 15:19:41
I think we might have won a watch with Bain guys. Every interview he is coming across as real good sort who is willing to learn. His kicking is much better than gordon also.

{Ed007's Note - Bain is a better all round 'keeper than Gordon so if Gordon has been seen as good enough to be No.1 for the past 4 seasons the Bain deserves a crack at it. He's still relatively young as 'keepers go as well so he will only get better imo.}

11 May 2018 15:56:09
What is Gunn like as a keeper, never seen him play. I know Scotland are trying to get him to commit to playing for them instead of England.

11 May 2018 15:24:54
Any thoughts on a new No 1 Ed.

{Ed007's Note - I'd be happy with Gunn or Ward as Kev says, Stan. Sondre Rossbach from Odds BK is another young 'keeper I really like and Lukas Hradecky from Eintracht Frankfurt and Yoan Cardinale from Nice are are out of contract this summer and would be great signings.}

11 May 2018 16:07:54
I Think that is really KRUL to say that about Gordon :-P.

11 May 2018 16:27:53
Lukáš Hrádecký is finished.

11 May 2018 16:28:30
Gunn is a very very competent keeper. I would be surprised if we got him but CL football must have an appeal. Would be very happy to see him at Parkhead. don't know anything about the other foreign keepers as mentioned by Ed but I agree we need a new number 1. I think Gordons knee injuries are going to catch up in any case. He needs a few months out not a few weeks.

11 May 2018 16:31:06
Jeezo Ed you must watch some amount of footie haha, i know about Bain and Gordon that is my limit. Krus because an old boss made me endure watching the Geordies so i do rate him although maybe he's not had the best of times this season, i think he would Krus it in Scotland. That ones just for you Jamie 😉.

11 May 2018 16:35:51
Ignore that Jamie for a second there i had it in my head he was kruz and not krul. I need to get back on the booze 😂.

{Ed007's Note - (rofl)

11 May 2018 16:47:02
Cheers Johnny let's hope you lads are right then and we can get him in. Hopefully PL can use his Man C connections to pull it off.

11 May 2018 16:50:01
Seriously how can anyone judge Bain on such few performances? Unless there are a lot of closet Dundee fans in here that watches him every week

Gordon’s distribution might be suspect but he is a far better keeper than anyone else we have including Bain and probably better than Krul.

11 May 2018 17:34:18
We can't judge Bain on so few performances yet you can judge Gordon as being better based on such few performances. Hmmm.

{Ed007's Note - Some people must only watch Celtic games, Stan, maybe if they watched more than just Celtic they'd know about players eh? Best not say how $hite most TRIFC players are or we might be accused of being closet The Rangers supporters!}

11 May 2018 17:29:11
Stanpetrov if we could get Gunn a good quality centre back keep Rogic and keep Edouard and Tierney a new right back and being greedy a replacement for Sinclair i would be over the moon. we could afford some decent players. Sell Moussa, Armstrong, Boyata, Allen, it would more than cover any outgoings for quality players. We also have VVD money so buying quality should not be an issue. But am I dreaming? But that's what we need.

11 May 2018 18:10:26
Johnnymac keep rogic but replace Sinclair? What you sniffing bud?

11 May 2018 18:20:47
That is alright Stan if you are looking for a drinking buddy don't pick Welshy fur fox sake 😝👍🍀🍀.

11 May 2018 19:51:15
Bain has been in Scottish football a good while and I have seen him play a number of times. He has been liked to a Celtic move as far back as Ronnies 1st season.
He has always looked a decent goalie to me and in the time he's been here you can seen he's better and catching the ball and better with the ball at his feet than Gordon. Whether he's as good a shot stopper remains to be seen. Looks a good signing to me.

{Ed007's Note - Paul Hartley - who has known Bain since their time at Aberdeen together and signed him for Alloa and Dundee - told me a few years back that Bain would one day end up at Celtic or at Ibrox. He also said that Bain was one of the hardest working 'keepers in training he'd ever seen so hopefully working with Rodgers & Stevie Woods will see him kick-on and maybe in a year or two he will be better equipped to be our No.1.
Like a lot of of our squad I think Bain would be more than capable of helping us dominate the Scottish and who could become CL/EL level players for us. One thing's for sure, at only 26 Bain's best years are definitely in front of him and hopefully us.}

11 May 2018 21:03:03
Kev83 I would replace Sinclair. Had great first season. Has looked miles off the pace since turn of the year and shows little sign of getting back to form. Would keep Rogic all day long. Do you think Sinclair is a better bet than Rogic? You must be mad.

{Ed007's Note - You're writing off our top scorer and want to sell him because he hasn't been great since the turn of the year yet Sinclair's stats for the season blows Rogic's right out the water in every department, more mins played, more goals and more assists and btw Rogic has made 13 appearances out of a possible 22 games since the turn of the year and showing no sign of ever being consistently fit never mind just in the second half of this season.
So yes, Sinclair is a far better bet than Rogic, especially if it's staying fit and being reliable that we're betting on, if we're going on scoring or assisting Sinclair is still the better bet.}

11 May 2018 22:44:01
Bang on ed
Johnnymac rogic is a lovely footballer but he is really one of our least effective attacking player. He scores the odd beauty and it hide that fact.
Sinclair has score more goals in TWO seasons than Rogic in SIX.
Sinclair also has more assists in that time.
In those extra four season rogic has only played about 20 more games.
Sinclair is by far the more dangerous and effective player out of the two.

{Ed007's Note - I'd have McGregor starting over Rogic and Rogic coming off the bench, if he's can't play 90 mins keep him for later on when the opposition are tiring and there's more space for him to use and expose.}

11 May 2018 23:44:26
I like both Bain and Gordon and find it difficult to decide which is best . I have to say that because Gordon has played 200 games with 100 clean sheets in a little over 3& a half seasons . Those are marvellous figures especially when u consider Celtic are an attacking team and according to most fans have had bomb scare defenders in Ambrose and Boyata and Lustig eithe a sick note or finished .
I don't think Bain can match those statistics playing behind defensive teams providing him good cover .
I think Celtic out field players are not quick enough and maybe not getting enough men into position to receive the ball from the goalie . I noticed several times on Wed night Celtic had 3 men along 18 yd line and Killie had 3 up marking them . When BR was at L'pool he tried 5 / 6 back as he said someone should be free . Getting the ball away quickly and accurately could have been the way to break through the firemen.

12 May 2018 00:50:21
Rd and Kev understand where you are coming from. i think Sinclair has gone back to the level he was before BR brought him to Celtic. Rogic for me has more chance of winning you a game. Never mind Sinclair last season. Look at him since jan 1st. No where near where he was. Why do you think he is going to improve?

12 May 2018 02:35:17
Bain hasn't really done a lot wrong when he's been called upon and I feel more comfortable watching him in goal than I do Gordon. Gordon's distribution is awful like the worst I've ever seen from a keeper. I will never get over him kicking it out for a corner against Rangers when no one was anywhere near him and he still had the cheek to blame the defence!

12 May 2018 09:21:00
Johnnymac even in a so called bad season Sinclaire has had a hand in winning us more games than Rogic this season and last season.
That is a fact.
He's score around double the goals rogic has scored and has more assists than Rogic this year alone.
Rogics only scored about 4 more goals than boyata.
So how do you work out that he will when you more games than Sinclair?

12 May 2018 14:42:41
Kev even BR is playing Sinclair off the bench. He is not turning in the performances like before. I hope i am wrong but i don't see him returning to last years form.

12 May 2018 15:31:58
We all know his form has dipped but even so he has still is more dangerous effective and had a much better season than Rogic.
