Re the Turnbull debacle
First it is not all Lawwell's fault, rumour I heard agents were waiting to find out Celtic offer then asked English clubs to better it.
I also heard Lawwell went into talks not 100% on board as he felt the boy from West Brom Reheem Harper was equally as talented and would cost club less in transfer fees.
The truth probably lies somewhere in the middle of all this.

It's looking like we will end up with Rekeem Harper. If we do I think he will do just as well.

14 Jun 2019 19:31:13
I had heard and read that we were backing off Harper as Lennon preferred Turnbull and lawwell was backing him.

14 Jun 2019 19:49:32
Just hope we get one of them in the door and happy to be here ASAP.
I trust the club to do the right thing for all concerned.

Does anyone think turnbell is better than Christie Arzani Shved Rogic Brown wee denbele or cal mac.

14 Jun 2019 20:05:39
Tbh and it's only my opinion but I feel we need a Harper type before a Turnbull type player.
But I would be happy to get both.

Think a midfielder is some way behind our actual transfer priorities! We start back on Monday and have no RB missing 2 first pick centre halfs, cover for KT and another striker!

I for one am glad this turnbull deal is going south as I thi k we can get much better for the money we are offering let's get back to Croatia or the Ukraine and get players.

14 Jun 2019 21:15:16
Turnbull does not make celtic any better. simple. walk away from deal now PL.

14 Jun 2019 22:10:45
I don't think this is like the McGinn deal, where if Celtic had offered the 4 million that Hibs wanted, McGinn would have come to us, instead it became an auction, this time Celtic have offered what Motherwell wanted, but Turnbull is only bothered about what club can offer him the best money, and the mad money available in England means he can join a championship club for more money that he can get up here, and put a clause in his contract that if any premier club comes in for him after the first season, he will have to be sold.

Reports suggest he was only offered £12k per week. If he had been signed from abroad or even English Championship for a £3m transfer fee you would imagine £20k would be standard minimum wages but as it’s Motherwell we are trying to offer way less.

Regardless if we think it’s a big fee for a squad player, that there’s better options for the money or that other positions are more important to fill, the facts are Celtic have offered a contract to Izaguire, Lustig and now Turnbull recently and all for different reasons have been rejected and these are only squad players.
We better get finger out and get Lennys targets nailed sooner rather than later!

I agree with the board on this one! We should not be held to ransom especially from him. We move on and get those who want to be part of a ten in a row history making team.

15 Jun 2019 01:25:42
Although he's had a great first season and has great potential, if we are being used to get him more money for another club down south rip up the offer and move on. Agree with Marco there are much better players out there for that money. Disagree though about the Harper/ Turnbull debate as we never replaced Armstrong with a goalscoring box to box midfielder. So if we pull the plug on Turnbull hopefully we go for another like for like player as you can't have enough goalscorers in your team.

15 Jun 2019 08:35:26
Who the hells even seen Harper it's down to money again we will regret this one as well.

15 Jun 2019 09:53:17
Harper’s actually a decent player, I’ve seen him quite a bit as I’m a baggie supporter as well as a Bhoy, lightning fast who runs at you can take on a player and score goals, I would take him.

Only 12 grand a week GGGG, poor wee soul! Callum McGregor has probably played more games this season than this boy has ever in professional football and I would bet McGregor isn’t it to far away from 12 grand a week! This is a kid who’s played well for half a season for a bottom 6 SPL club! 3 million transfer fee and 12 grand a week is sensational money for him! And way more than I think he’s worth! I’m the first one to slate lawell and the board for penny pinching and dragging the hole out of things but not this time! They’ve went above and beyond here and should pull the plug immediately to concentrate on other targets!

Have to agree with u LH86 100%. I can't believe some people are saying it only 12k a week is being offered. The lads was on around 1k a week If reports are right at Motherwell. Yes he is a decent player but he has proven nothing yet at a higher level. It's very easy be a big fish in a small pond but if he came to us he would be the total opposite. Surely he should realise if he does produce the goods that in 18 mths or 2 years he could be in line to get a new contract and get to this figure or near it that appears to be mentioned at the min. Someone needs to pull him aside and give him a dose of reality.

Buying players at Turnbull's level of development, I think £10- £12 k a week would be high for us . It would also be high for middle lower Championship sides .
