Celtic should be approaching hibs to sign Nisbet. Offer them a million plus griffiths on a permanent and paddy on a loan.
Then go to Tel Aviv offer biton plus money for Cohen.
Punt bayo
Along with ajeti that is the strike force sorted for next season.

I think our problems are more at the back Kev.

I know the defense is a constant dilemma - as is goalkeeper, but in the last four seasons we have had the goals and presence of Dembele and Eddy and to be perfectly frank what's left will not cut-it.
The new manager has to practically rebuild an entire squad when you take away the loans, past-its, not good enoughs' and want-away's.
Hopefully the Board have been aware of this for some time, because if they hesitate or stall in any way, we will be playing catch-up again!

We've got to aim Higher than Nisbet jeez he's had a decent season but not for me. shanland was touted on here and Nisbet falls I to that category Imo.

Cohen would be a good signing without breaking the bank and a replacement for the likes of Christie. Can play on either wing or as a 2nd striker so he's far more versatile and scored some worldies too. We was linked with him last Jan and could've helped with our RW issue this season as well as ST. I agree with loaning out Paddy he needs regular games to develop. Mally Nisbet is top scorer in the league outwith the Glasgow teams and Griff has become too much of a liability so that's got to class as an upgrade.

Nisbet has been directly involved in 18 goals in 31 matches and would be a cracking choice for a 3rd striker. Ajeti, griffiths and Klimala have been involved 21 between them.

Eddie to Nisbet Celtic plc's wet dream.

16 Feb 2021 15:12:46
Making the assumption that Griffiths would be happy to take a massive pay cut to go back to Hibs? Likely he will run down his contract to the final day. Maybe offer as a loan though?

16 Feb 2021 15:14:22
On the Striker situation for next season;-

* Nisbet for me would'nt get off tge bench too often and the argument then is why don't we have our youngsters coming through?
* Cohen looks decent, might be worth a shout
* Griff is done, get rid
* Ajeti and Klimaka need a chance but I doubt they'll both make it

IMO we need a like for like replacement for Eddie who can cut it both domestically and in Europe. A big Centre Forward who can hold it up and bring the runners from midfield into play as well as scoring his quota.

Easier said than done I know, but if we can get rid of Hammond, maybe a D. O. F can come in and find such a player instead of wasting a couple of million here, there and everywhere on duds, bench fillers and projects.

{Ed007's Note - Someone like Ivan Toney - who Hammond done the groundwork on a deal - would have been ideal. If Hammond had been allowed to make the final decision would probably have Toney and a few others that got away.}

16 Feb 2021 15:15:37
Think you need to read the post again Auf. Nisbet would be Griffiths replacement.

16 Feb 2021 15:44:01
Saying that Hammond almost had the deal for toney done ed? Was he over ruled? Do you know of any others that were close?

{Ed007's Note - As Head of Recruitment he'd have had Toney scouted, watched him himself and made the initial contact with the player/his club & agent and pitched it to the board. Lawwell always made the final decision and we went with Ajeti.
Lewis Gibson, Omar Colley, Alfie Doughty, Ben Davies etc etc are just some of players that Hammond presented to the board. People are blaming him for things that aren't his fault.}

16 Feb 2021 15:49:30
Cohan scored few times in europa this season.
He 6,1
He 2 footed
Good with freekicks
Good with ball at his feet
Good in the air
Pace. to burn
Works his arse aff.
International with European experience
Most players from Israel league seem to handle ours ok.
That is eddys replacement right there.

16 Feb 2021 15:52:38
Ed, if we bring in a D. O. F for next year I pressume that would that mean Hammond leaving as a D. O. F would control the scouting, transfers etc?

{Ed007's Note - Hammond could just be given a different job, chief scout or some modern fancy version of that lol Head of Scouting Operations.}

16 Feb 2021 16:13:52
You can have a head of recruitment working under a DOF.

16 Feb 2021 18:09:03
Nice one Ed.
Kev, sounds like a player.

16 Feb 2021 22:36:10
Pity we missed out on wamangituka, he has been excellent since moving from Paris fc. I think the players we look at are great prospects, just getting deals over the line are difficult. Liam shaw looks like he has a lot of potential and is versatile by all accounts. I agree that Nesbit would be a great squad player, and it’s a squad we need to build not just a team as numbers will be low once the clear out takes place. Lewis Ferguson anyone? .

17 Feb 2021 06:51:42
Getting deals over the line seems a constant problem at Celtic, then we end up with 2/ 3/ 4th choices that are rotten. I hate to say it but look across the city, we can debate the quality of player but the one thing they do is get their business done early and bed the players in. every year every window we’re dragging our heels getting deals done to the point we’ve no time to bed guys in and get them settled. Look at last years panic buys, ajeti and barkas for a start and look how that’s panned out.

17 Feb 2021 07:59:37
I'd take ferguson but think central midfield is the last place we need to build.

17 Feb 2021 09:56:39
Like the sound of soro, mcgregor, Ferguson and Turnbull. Solid and creative. Also like doig and Nesbit. But your right, a couple of areas are more important. I think we are a mess at the back and have signed badly in attack, think if you put ajeti and Klimala you’d have a player. And griff has run his race, still good for a goal, but let us down too many times. I’d like us to clear the decks and start again.
