Cheers ed
Streams were poor - paid the now tv voucher price
Wasn't the best value for money, but I'll take three points all day long.
I think BR will show faith and pick the same players until we're over the line, then I think a few changes are needed.
I'd like to see gamboa on the right for a change, griff in for a few, and. If Tam Rogic back pulling the strings- even if it's only for 67mins.
Get the title in the bag and start building for next year.
I was watching macgregor today, I like him although I think he lacks that final element of quality, I was hoping eboue would have that bit extra, time will tell.

Just reminiscing folks watching you tube vids of nakamura what a player hopefully see him one more time in the hoops in Henrik n lubos charity game greatest free kick taker ever, my best night in paradise v man u a naka special qualifying for last 16 loved the man from japan.

His screamer from 40 yards against them 👌 All the more amazing that it was set up by a phenomenal pass from gary caldwell. A rare thing indeed.

19 Mar 2017 12:36:12
Mitch Sean Sookie Nakamura was undoubtedly a talent but for me Van Hooydonk was the best dead ball specialist and free kick taker I've seen at Celtic Park. His consistency hitting the back of the net was incredible in fact I think he was better than Beckham. ☘️.

19 Mar 2017 16:14:32
Caldwell played 2 phenomenal passes that game. on to the head of Mcdonald to set up JVH for the winner very late on😉.

18 Mar 2017 21:17:04
Can any of our bhoys in Oz, or anybody else, say anything about the boy Riley McGree? He's been called up for Australia to replace Rogic and Tosh is meant to be looking at him.

Agree2 Disagree0

18 Mar 2017 21:24:56
jamiebhoy7 might be able to get that info for you jim, his uncle is a youth coach in australia and coached rogic, so he might know about this boy.

18 Mar 2017 22:57:01
Had a wee look at him on youtube on the back of your comment Jim Tim. I know these youtube videos can make anyone look good but he's 18 with only 13 senior appearances so I would say 12 minutes of highlights isn't bad for that game time. Fast on the ball and good awareness of where his team-mates are. The boy looks to have the tools to develop in to a very good player. I would support any effort to try and bring him into the fold.

19 Mar 2017 08:20:23
Interesting jamiebhoy7 trivia there. Haven't seen him post in ages, thought he might have gone chasing Isa round Norway or something. Does he still get in the live chat?

Just watched Adelaide v Brisbane there Murdoch, couldn't find any clips more than 40secs on google. Crazy last ten minutes where Brisbane's keeper got sent off for an elbow at 96 mins and a midfielder had to go in goal for the pen. Adelaide scored it and won 2-1.

Anyway, on one game McGree looks tidy. Plays in the middle of a midfield 3, good on the ball, finding space with it at his feet and in little interchanges. Quite dynamic. Tried a few worldie long rangers that were poor and started to tire. On the whole, and only on one game, looks promising. Had a good game against a team who are supposed to be a lot better.

19 Mar 2017 09:40:34
Sorry jim but who is tosh? Haha.

19 Mar 2017 10:01:49
Hi JT, JB67

Nearly right JT just a different country lol been away for 12 weeks and back less than a fortnight mate and had loads and had plenty to do upon coming back!

JB67 is right as usual lol I have emailed my uncle so see what he says in the next day or so he was right about Rogic and also sadly about Jackson Irvine who never got a chance @ Celtic and yet within 8 weeks of signing for Ross County was the best player in Scotland outwith us and now nearly single handily holding up Burton Albion in the championship with double digit (ish) goals from CH and Midfield!

19 Mar 2017 13:25:55
Good to hear from you Jamie. I'll look forward to that scouting report if that's how your uncle called it with Rogic and Irvine.

AG, Tosh McKinlay. He's working as a scout for us now. I didn't know that until I read it was him that was watching Simunovic when we signed him.

18 Mar 2017 16:33:39
It may not be popular but I can't help but be impressed with Shay Logan, always consistent and never seems to have a bad game.

Agree1 Disagree4

18 Mar 2017 17:12:41
No for me ray got to look higher than him plus he's a nob.

18 Mar 2017 16:59:24
Nope not for me, don't rate him and he looks a rite f@nny!

18 Mar 2017 19:39:20
He's consistently good for Aberdeen but he's not the type of player we need to take us up a level. Plus a lot of our fans seem to dislike him after the Tonev incident.

18 Mar 2017 21:01:43
Is shay Logan only a knob because he supposedly got racially abused, or is there another reason?

18 Mar 2017 21:47:33
id taks him aswell rayman boys no a bad player at all.

{Ed007's Note - So sign a 29 year old mediocre RB and then what? Sell Lustig who has just signed a new 2 year deal or sell Gamboa who is 2 years younger than - and a far better player than - Logan who's not even been here a year?
Tony Ralston in the Development squad is pushing for a first team chance and there's also Sam Wardrop and Josh Kerr who I'd rather give a chance than sign Logan.
The only player in Scottish football we should be thinking of signing is John McGinn from Hibs.}

18 Mar 2017 23:06:13
Agree with the McGinn comment from 007 thought we should have taken him when he left st Mirren remember him being a standout player for them and gave Scot Brown a torrid time have not seen him play for Hibs though.

{Ed007's Note - My mate that scouts for Accies has watched him a lot more than me over the years and said the same as you, D, we should have signed him from St Mirren. I've only watched a few Hibs games this season but he always looks the part and works his socks off.
I know that's still Championship level but we would - and have - happily send our youngsters to Hibs on loan so why not take a punt on him? He'd fit into that wee 'clique' of young Scots besides the likes of Tierney, Armstrong, Henderson, McGregor even Forrest and he would be more than capable of playing in any domestic games for us.}

18 Mar 2017 23:11:28
We still have Janko on the books as well, but doesn't seem to be featuring much for Barnsley.

{Ed007's Note - I forgot about him! I can't seeing him having any future with us but he's still only 21 and got a couple of years on his contract. Maybe a move to Nottingham Forest for a couple of million? ;)

19 Mar 2017 08:51:02
Only player I would have from Scotland is patterson from hearts.
I rate him.
Good defender and is dangerous going forward. Reminds me of Lustig and I think he will develop into a right good player if his next move is the right one.

19 Mar 2017 10:20:23
Agree witb ed the bhoy ralston could turn out a player for us if he's given a chance and my opinion of logan is purely based on ability and character nothing to do with the racist comments but again he's a knob.

19 Mar 2017 17:10:43
Don't think I would sign Logan just like the look of him didn't realise he's 29.
Just think we need an improvement on Lustig.
If u look at the left hand side KT is always backing Sinky up ad overlapping and are a good partnership and this is our best attacking option.

Right hand side while Lustig is a good defender he seems to let Forrest go and not back him up, there is very little interplay between them.
Just think a more athletic younger right back might be needed.

17 Mar 2017 23:17:48
Hope you all had a happy and safe paddys day. Maybe you picked out a few winners today if so you will be feeling champion. all weekend.

Agree3 Disagree2

17 Mar 2017 12:51:32

Hope you all have a great St Paddy's day/ night.
Hopefully to make it a financially better one here today's Cheltenham tips
1.30 Master Blueyes
4.50 Coo Star Sivola
5.30 The Game Changer
do each way singles/ doubles/ treble.

Agree0 Disagree5

17 Mar 2017 14:35:02
Same to you Timalloy. I'm on Coo Star Sivola too, so good luck with that. Got a cheeky fiver on Minella for Value at 4.10. 50/ 1.

18 Mar 2017 07:59:23
Well lads how did the horses go?

18 Mar 2017 11:11:22
Still waiting for one to finish steph. Admittedly I don't have a clue. I have a go at Cheltenham and the National. Between Timalloy and 'the old fella down the street, I get some good suggestions. Had a couple placed to cut my losses. Got a bit silly after the Guinness yesterday. Flying Tiger got me 50 quid up altogether. Nothing to write home about but as long as your taking money off the bookies it ain't too bad.

18 Mar 2017 19:14:22
@/ Stephbhoy and JimTim over the 4 days I was up the first day, down the next 2 days, and made another small profit on last day. Overall still have my pot of money I started with plus about £50 also. Some win big, some lose big so I am content, other Cheltenhams I have won big, and others I lost big so, what saved me this year was two things, betting each way and betting with bookmaker who pays treble odds for only one winner on a Lucky 15.

16 Mar 2017 21:44:53
Currently watching Europa League. Man Utd, Lyon, Roma, Ajax, Schalke, Monchengladbach, I reckon we'd give any of them a decent game over 2 legs. If you were to offer me last 16 of CL or 3rd place and a run in the EL I honestly think I'd go for the latter. With a few more signings we could do quite well in that tournament.

Agree2 Disagree8

17 Mar 2017 09:14:28
Agree Kev. Said for a while I'd like to see us have a good crack at the Europa.

Finishing bottom of our CL group this year, the aim next year, obviously, would be to go one better. Qualify, hopefully with a decent draw finish 3rd, have the CL money banked for the season after and see how far we can go. Season after, use that wind fall wisely, and again try to get third, and try to get further in the EL. If we manage to qualify from our CL group, fair play, but I really would like to see us go on a EL run.

A 'marquee' CAM, a RWF who can contribute like Sinclair, a top drawer centre half and I reckon we could have a shot.

17 Mar 2017 10:13:09
He the next couple years of building I would be have with any European football after Christmas but I would love to see us having a right good go at getting beyond the last 16 of champions league.

17 Mar 2017 19:06:49
would rather give the europa a big miss. Hated the fact that we always have to play on a sunday after playing on thursdays.

16 Mar 2017 15:59:24
Do you know much about the new Head of Recruitment guy we've just brought in Ed?

{Ed007's Note - Not really mate, if you look at posts from yesterday you'll see us talking about him.}

Agree0 Disagree4

16 Mar 2017 12:04:06
What would everyone's preference be?


Keep moussa next season and roberts returns to city

Sell moussa for £30 mill with Roberts signed on a permanent contract

I'd go for the second option.

Agree0 Disagree5

16 Mar 2017 12:31:49
Sell moussa for 50 million or more . send roberts back to city and buy a real quality right winger.

16 Mar 2017 13:42:06
Moussa for me.

16 Mar 2017 14:05:58
DRB: now before anyone shoots me down, here is my 2p.
Roberts is a good player, my problem with PR is that he is not a fast tuning with the ball as JF and he is just a bit lightweight atm. I know that Sinky on the left is a far better player than both, but I think we should be looking at a similar player as Sinky for the right side. PR has already stated that he wants to go back to City to try and get into the 1st team . On the second point I think we may wel get another season out of Moussa unless a really really good offer comes in, which would need to be done early doors of the transfer so we have time to get a replacement.

16 Mar 2017 14:33:39
There ain't a hope in hell moussa will get sold for 50 million! No chance! I like and rate wee paddy but I wouldn't pay the money City would want for him! If moussa goes for 25-30 million I'd invest it in another striker and a really top quality centre half! Think we're still lacking at the back, boyata isn't even close to being the answer and god knows what's happened to Erik! So another striker and centre half for me and if there's money left I'd buy another right winger to.

16 Mar 2017 14:43:32
or show some ambition and sign both.

16 Mar 2017 15:25:24
Keep Dembele all day long. Don't entertain any bids until they get crazy. He's still only 20. Scary how good he might get. He's contracted until 2020 and if he has another season like this season that should be extended. He's said he wants to stay here for years, Roberts wants to try his hand elsewhere.

16 Mar 2017 15:53:08
In previous years we have always accepted big bids for star players but perhaps the influence of BR could help us keep Dembele for at least another season while the return of Roberts could be addressed by CL profits and cash raised from the departure of guys like Ciftci, Ambrose, Allen, GMS, Commons and other surplus squad players.
The manager has only really used one transfer window so far and I am sure he must have a shopping list for PL.

16 Mar 2017 17:52:40
Keep Dembelle, go further in the champions league, sell Dembelle, same old, same old.

16 Mar 2017 19:45:21
Keep Dembele another year and hopefully he keeps performing and make the French squad for next year's world cup. The price then would be massive!

17 Mar 2017 10:44:27
We will keep Dembele if he wants to stay.
We will lose him if he wants to go, and the only bargaining point will be the fee we get. HH.

18 Mar 2017 16:39:41
To be fair I can't see him making the world cup squad for France next year. With Griezzmen (excuse the spelling) Lacazette, Giroud, Martial to name a few. Would anybody take a punt on Mcgeady for the RW.
