What do we need to do to get rid of him 😂.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed007's Note - His work permit application will now need to be appealed after it being rejected. My own theory is because if it had passed Efe would have been able to play Man Utd in the FA Cup and Jose was a bit worried - think along the Jorge Cadete fiasco :-D

16 Feb 2017 16:45:48
Ah would have thought with big Efe in the starting line up that would have been man utd playing with 12 men.

Agree0 Disagree0

If we didn't need our subs and appearance was the issue I'd give the guy a run out on the 89th for the next few games (as long as he went up front) . The establishment have gone trully mad if he doesn't meet the criteria?

Agree0 Disagree0

Is he not due for residency come the summer? Sounds mad to me that a work permit is being dragged up after his his lenght of time here, appearances domestic/ international combined and the tax he has chipped in. Weird world. Who is pulling the strings on this?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed007's Note - The problem is that Ambrose hasn't played enough internationals in the last two seasons to meet the FA criteria but they're all great points you've made.}

17 Feb 2017 20:00:51
Feel sorry for him, he will be wanting to get his career back on track with a fresh start.

Agree0 Disagree0

Never forget being at paradise when we beat Barcelona 2-1. Efe was a rock. Hope he gets a wee run in the team once the leagues wrapped up before he leaves at end of the season. Guy deserves a good sent off.

a bit light up top now ed if griffiths or moussa get injured again. i know griffiths is in the squad for the weekend, can you see commons making the bench for the run in with ciftci gone (assuming commons can shrug off his back injury) or do you think rodgers will prefer young aitchison?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed007's Note - LG isn't in the squad and Ciftci flew out to Poland this morning, God knows who's going to be on the bench - I'll be amazed if Commons would be involved as that would be some backtrack by Rodgers - but fingers crossed Dembele doesn't pick up a knock or anything worse during the game.
Without starting a fight with anyone, Rdogers could fancy one of the the youngsters we've never thought of playing in position so we might will see a surprise on the bench.}

16 Feb 2017 15:24:18
We've already seen that he'd rather go no out and out striker than play ciftci so I don't think he is a big lose.
The young lad that scored last season and won the penalty this year will most likely be on the bench?

Agree1 Disagree2

or desmond might have been in rodgers ear saying "i don't care if he shagged your mate gerrard's wife we're paying commons 18k a week get him in the squad don't take any chances up front we're going for the treble" lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed007's Note - So Desmond's interfering with team affairs and dictating who plays? I can't see Rodgers standing for any of that nonsense.}

16 Feb 2017 16:31:50
big dermot pays 45k a week to rodgers ed so i think he would have a say on every matter, though not picking the team, my point was he may have suggested to rodgers seeing we're paying the bugger put him in the squad, if we're light lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed007's Note - Celtic pays Rodgers wages.}

16 Feb 2017 16:58:17
in saying that ed desmond probably pays more than that a week berthing his yacht lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

If ciftci gets this move we are indeed down to the marrow. Give the skelper 60 mins for his hat tricks and throw rogic, lg, Armstrong and paddy in oxygen chambers to speed them back. Would we qualify for an emergency loan now haha? Pl should be right on the phone to Real (zaragoza) inquiring about a fringe player emergency loan for thier pacey winger/ cf eh ed? 😅.

Agree0 Disagree0

Why are people still going on about that waste of space never has been commons.

Agree3 Disagree2

16 Feb 2017 22:31:09
because we are down to the bare bones up front and he's sitting there on 18k a week doing nothing, get him off his arse to help the cause, say what you like about him, he knows where the goal is.

Agree2 Disagree1

17 Feb 2017 08:46:47
I'd rather give aitchinson his chance than have him in the squad.

Agree3 Disagree2

17 Feb 2017 20:05:49
Sooner we see the last of that clown the better.

Anyone heard the rumour that Celtic are interested in signing Billy Gilmour? Apparently he turns 16 in June and both parties are keen but loads of big clubs after him. Think BR could really develop him and he has show with KT, Miller and Aitchison that you'll get a chance if good enough. This would also have the added bonus of making the Sevconians utterly raging 😂.

16 Feb 2017 15:24:46
Would we have to pay compensation for him?

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Feb 2017 19:09:13
I'd say so if he is still classed as an academy player. It will be buttons, low risk and admittedly a big giruy. He hasn't signed pro yet as far as I know.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Feb 2017 21:11:01
Tell the huns we"ll wave the money for the damage to our bogs and we"ll take Gilmour.

Agree1 Disagree1

Stevie on those basic fair and sensible compo for compo grounds mentioned id say pefect business. However inluding the current currant bun financial law case climate into that sensible, fair and apt offer. we will be lucky to sign him before his 40th.
