I know we all thought this ship had sailed, however anybody think there’s a chance we may see Paddy Roberts back?

He’s saying he hasn’t spoken to guardiola so obviously knows now he’s not in his plans. So surely if the English window closes and he’s still there, he’d rather come back to Celtic than rot in city’s reserves?

Agree0 Disagree1

No think we are better leaving wee paddy be. He clearly doesn't see his future at CP. We have enough in this area now imo. Would rather spend the money strengthening elsewhere in the squad.

31 Jul 2018 11:02:09
I would love to sign Paddy but have accepted that ship has sailed.

Or has it? :)

No, it has.

Are you sure?

Yes, shut up and think about something else.

Really? Not even a chance?

Multiple personality syndrome isn’t always fun.

So you’re telling me there’s a chance 😂. If the wee fellla hasn’t moved on from City come August 9th it’s time to bring him home. I appreciate he was hoping for a move to another premiership team but not everything in life plays out the way you want it. What is clear and has been for some time is he has no future with city. Time to come home Paddy you’ll be welcomed with open arms 🍀.

Nothing has really changed for me. The lad wants to play in the EPL, fair do's. But unless he gets a silid offer then I'd imagine he'd be quite happy coming back. And I for one would welcome him.

Ice Man there’s always a chance.

Don’t listen to him Ice Man,

Shut it you.

Magicpole we can only live and dream. If I’m honest I expect a club (maybe Leicester) to come in on transfer deadline day. However if nothing happens when that window slams shut, the my friend my excitement will grow.

31 Jul 2018 12:39:04
Guy's im sorry but he just wouldn't even get a game now. Any one of you who would drop Forrest now needs to get a grip. I know he was injured but Paddy did hee haw last year.

31 Jul 2018 13:01:47
Paddy is better than Forrest all day long. He was injured most of the time. Forrest’s form after Christmas fell away. Anybody who thinks Forrest is a better player obviously failed to notice his dip in form.

Im nit denying Forrest has improved but let’s be honest he had been an imposter for too long. It’s about time he got his arse in gear.

31 Jul 2018 13:27:26
Just my opinion . But like denyar, guedetti and many others before? He thinks the grass is greener . A good player but will end up a journeyman in the lower doldrums of English football. All this, maybe one day? Sorry no one is bigger than our club and we are no longer a last option for players in their later years. Thanks for the memories paddy.

31 Jul 2018 13:36:36
Paddy is a much better footballer than Forrest. No argument.

31 Jul 2018 13:49:53
Hope not he had his chance and wanted other things. Thanks and goodbye.

31 Jul 2018 14:47:26
I agree with most of the above, he could have stayed if he wanted to - and if the manager wanted him of course?
I always felt that although he was the more gifted and skillful of the two, BR somehow preferred Forrest's over all game - even though he does drift in and out of seasons, he is still a big game player.
Roberts could have had his own fan-club, song and supporters club named after him here lol, as he is the type of entertainer we have always loved at Celtic; however, he thinks he can do better and although I wish him well, how many have left us and faded away.

31 Jul 2018 15:45:51
I just don't get the whole 'had his chance' argument. Unlike Denayer and Guidetti, he had nothing but good things to say about our club. Not everybody grows up a Celtic fan. There will be a few members of the current team that will want to move on eventually. So PR is testing the water now, I say so what. If he's good enough (which he is) and would give his all (I think he would) then that would be enough for me.

31 Jul 2018 18:05:46
He done nothing last season and all his problems lay at not having a decent pre season a bit like this pre season for him last pre season he traveled to America pre season with Man City reserves and I don’t think he ever got on. He’s openly said he wants to try his luck down south so good luck to the boy but we are Celtic we shouldn’t be anyone’s last resort.

31 Jul 2018 18:26:51
I cannot sleep at night with nightmares of Paddy Roberts lowering himself to play for Celtic . After contributing next to nothing last season, he was clearly unhappy that Brendan didn't bring him on for the final minutes of the Cup Final, to show his talents when game was won .
We don't need a player like Paddy Roberts, even if you think he can contribute to Celtic, he obviously believes he deserves better,
I wouldn't stand in either his way or Denayer's.

31 Jul 2018 18:52:55
Anybody who thinks that James Forrest is a better player than Paddy seriously need their head looking at and old man Chris I reckon it’s time for your meds mate.

31 Jul 2018 19:50:54
Clearly brendan Rodgers feels Forrest is a more rounded player than paddy does he need his head examined? Paddy loved his time here some of his play is genius but I feel in the modern game the tricky wee winger is a redundant thing of the past. Now a days it’s thorough bred athletes managers look for who are physically imposing have pace and stamina not somebody who has super glue on there boot as if the balls stuck to it. I fear paddy just won’t make it to the very top as not an athletic type of winger. Would we pay the cash if he became available I doubt it? I would rather our defence strengthened first.

31 Jul 2018 20:11:09
I don’t think Brendan rated Forrest more than Paddy. Forest had a good start to the season then did his normal disappearing act. Paddy was injured for the most part of the season. When both were fit during the invincible season Forrest didn’t get a look in.

31 Jul 2018 20:26:20
I spoke to someone who knows about paddy. Before anyone says, no relation or friend of a friend. He used to work at Man Utd looking after the young kids making sure they weren’t homesick etc. Was speaking to him at a social event. He still keeps in contact with loads in the game. He says Paddy is talking to 2 championship sides about a move but he’s not keen. One was Swansea. He Wants a premier league team but none are coming in for him yet. If he can’t get a premier league team then he would prefer a move back to Celtic but not on loan. Would have to be permanent. Only telling you what this guy said so don’t shoot me down for it 😂 No idea if Celtic would be willing to buy him or not.

31 Jul 2018 20:43:24
He said today that he wouldn't rule out another stint at Celtic.

31 Jul 2018 21:56:31
There is not a shadow of doubt that James Forrest is a far better Celtic player than Paddy Roberts, don't take my word, just check who Brendan picked the most when both were fit . I understand that some people think that a player from England has to be better than a Scottish player, but Celtic have been blessed to have Forrest even though., some of our fans gave him a real hard time, he has been a stand- out since Brendan joined.

31 Jul 2018 22:41:29
In order to make Forrest a better player though does he not need competion? Paddy would provide that. I think the Forrest we seen now is partly due to him having to work harder to keep Paddy out the team when he was here.
