Huddersfield want paddy Roberts on loan for the season. Premier league team so will probably go there rather than back to us?

Edg

They signed a winger from Montpellier. There's hope yet!


2.) 09 Aug 2018 18:02:23
I don’t think he went there so we must be in pole position now 👍.


3.) 09 Aug 2018 18:15:18
I hope so Edg 👍.


4.) 09 Aug 2018 23:42:42
Can championship teams be able too still get loans in cause am sure he could go somewhere in that league but I may be wrong.

Ok so we know the daily record is a sh@t paper but how do they come up with their stories? Today it is that moussa Dembele is worth £40 million! We if it's true sell him now and take the money. The boy is good. One of the most promising at Celtic in years but £40 million? And Real Madrid will sign him and loan him back to us! Lazy journalists desperate to sell papers I think.

Edg

1.) 30 Oct 2016 15:19:47
Must admit Edg totally agree with you. Let's be real here 40 million what a load of nonsense. Dembele is some player but considering a club like real madrid are sniffing around Pablo Dybala for the summer 2018 transfer window it puts things into perspective. Let the lad mature and develop here and as for Chelsea anyone else remember the last time they came in for a youngster from here? If someone offered 10 mill at the end of the season for a player that cost 500k you'd bite the hand. Simple as Scottish football cannot demand such a figure. Load of nonsense.


2.) 30 Oct 2016 17:12:04
@Edg and jb84 BOTH OF YOU are talking nonsense. Ok £40m seems pie in the sky but if Moussa keeps developing AND scoring goals in the Champions League then Celtic have at least a £15m -£20m player on their books. Celtic hold all the aces here.
I hope we Celtic fans can enjoy Dembele for at least the next 2 seasons but if not sell to the highest bidder and reinvest cash in the team.
Here is another idea, if say Real Madrid want him, sell him but as part of deal sign one of their up and coming players, so Celtic get £20m AND a promising player.


3.) 30 Oct 2016 17:25:33
Agree that he is not worth £40m but definitely don't agree about biting the hand off for £10m. When you look at strikers out there who cost far more and couldn't lace Mousa's boots and add to the fact he is only turned 20 then I'd be looking for £20m. You said Scottish football dictates we can't get more than £10 but we have already done that with Forster, Van Dijk and Wanyams so that comment makes no sense. Also, as a striker, they always demand a premium and also the Premiership has much more money nowadays. If they are paying £15m down there for Ross McCormack and Jonathan Kodjia then they should be paying £20m+ for Moussa. He is better and much younger than both. That said, I want to keep him for as long as possible as we are building a quality team just now.


4.) 31 Oct 2016 06:43:57
He's already a £15m player, if he keeps developing £20m by the summer is not improbable.


5.) 01 Nov 2016 17:32:28
He is our player and he says he wants to be our player for years to come, quoting valuations and posting about him leaving isn't helpful .

Am I the only one that wants Rangers to qualify for group stages in europa league?
I also want hibs and Aberdeen to qualify too. Why? If they do qualify it's more coefficient points for Scotland so less qualifiers for us in champions league. More importantly though they will all have to play Thursday and sundays and with their smaller squads they won't cope therefore making life easier for us in the league and hopefully being in champs league we will have a better chance.

Edg

1.) 02 Aug 2018 20:17:34
Edg ah widnae wish them luck in a raffle! ☘️.


2.) 02 Aug 2018 21:43:43
I think the co efficient points are earned now by the individual club. Still want them toget humped at every turn.


3.) 02 Aug 2018 22:17:17
Edg, we need no help from Rangers 2012 . They can do without co- efficient points as they shouldn't exist . We don't need them to have excuse of playing Thursday and Sunday as they arn't good enough to worry us .


4.) 03 Aug 2018 10:41:56
I wouldn’t want them to win a fecking raffle. All the rest yes.


5.) 03 Aug 2018 14:41:28
Correct jfp.

I think this year may be different regarding transfers. The English teams can only buy for another 2 weeks but they can sell up to the end of August. Are we now having to wait on teams in The English leagues to see who they get in before the deadline and then they will know who they want to sell? Will mean Celtic and others may have to wait to get the players they want. Just a thought.

Edg

{Ed007's Note - You've got to consider as well that the calibre of player we're targeting won't come to Scotland until CL qualification is decided, we might not like it but that's just the way things work.}


1.) 25 Jul 2018 17:16:27
It will be interesting to see if there's anyone available within Celtics spec when the English window closes. I agree with Ed that it will depend on CL too. Can't remember but was Sinclair brought in after CL was confirmed? Then Edouard last season, everyone thought it was a development loan but look at his impact. Could be the same this year.


2.) 25 Jul 2018 18:14:40
Ed I get your point but that viewpoint from players is so flawed, so the way they see it is they'll only come if we're in the cl, all well and good but what if they're here this year and then next year we don't make it? Do they put in a transfer request? Why don't they just realise that they're potentially strengthening an already strong team so there's more chance of getting to the cl groups every year.

{Ed007's Note - Players have asked to move clubs when they have failed to qualify for the CL, Suarez & VvD with Liverpool springs to mind but it's not that uncommon, Arsenal and Man Utd have both suffered in recruitment in recent years because they had no CL football to offer. A lot say it's because they want to play CL football but as I've said for years it's the top CL team's wages they want, not just the prestige of playing in the tournament like we offer young upcoming players. If it's just about playing at that level why don't these players like Suarez come to Celtic for £25k a week and play in the CL?
You'll probably find there's also a bit of extra cash involved in wages negotiations if you're going to be signing for a team playing in the CL.}


3.) 25 Jul 2018 18:41:59
Ed mate your bang on there. Once we have secured our place in the champions league again I feel we see a bit of movement there. Quality signings will arrive.

Keep the faith guys 🍀.


4.) 25 Jul 2018 20:19:05
Aye mate am not disagreeing that players think that way I'm just questioning their thinking.

{Ed007's Note - Players have all the power these days.}


5.) 25 Jul 2018 21:43:05
Will we know if we have qualified for group stages before the window shuts?

{Ed007's Note - The last qualifier is on the 28/29th of August.}


6.) 25 Jul 2018 22:25:43
Cheers ed.

{Ed007's Note - (yes)


 

 

16 Aug 2017 17:48:36
I see Snodgrass might be looking for a new club. Worth a punt? I'd take him.

Edg

1.) 16 Aug 2017 18:08:12
Like him as a player but don't see where he'd fit in our team.


 

 

11 Aug 2017 19:33:31
Just listening to Chris Sutton on BT saying how this celtic team is not as good as the team that Beat Astana last year. What a load of rubbish. He then says that Celtic need to do everything they can to get Paddy Roberts in for the game. As the deadline has passed for the play off round it doesn't matter if we get him in before Wednesday as he cannot play. Sutton the expert?

Edg

{Ed007's Note - You can make a wildcard signing up until midnight of the day before the first leg, Tuesday for us.}


1.) 11 Aug 2017 19:42:48
Though I don't agree we are weaker you might want to get things right when slagging people aff Edg.


2.) 11 Aug 2017 19:45:09
When we played astana last year janko oconnel were in back 4.


3.) 11 Aug 2017 20:35:41
Good point Mally. I'm sure Efe was on the bench if not starting too.


4.) 11 Aug 2017 20:48:11
We are mentally the strongest we have been in years. We are only weaker because moussa and boyata are injured. Also when we played astana last year wasnt roberts injured anyway.


5.) 11 Aug 2017 21:31:05
line up from last home tie
Gordon
Janko
Lustig
O'Connell
Tierney
Brown
McGregor
Armstrong Substituted for K Touré at 61'
Roberts Substituted for Johansen at 31'
Forrest Substituted for Dembele at 75'
Griffiths.


6.) 11 Aug 2017 21:34:19
And was moussa not playing second fiddle to griffiths and boyata not getting a look in?


7.) 11 Aug 2017 21:44:09
My only worry is only one CH and one CF going into such a big game.


8.) 11 Aug 2017 21:46:45
Guys we consistently play players out of position this season, that tells me that we don't have enough cover in the squad.


9.) 11 Aug 2017 21:49:54
Looked good for first 20 mins but Sinclaire has really gone backwards. We just picked too many poor passes. Bitton is never a centre half. Forrest can't open up defences, Hayes not what we need. If BR does not think we need another striker then I am lost for words. We don't play Griff in case he gets an injury and if he does pick up an injury what do we do? We need to buy a centre half and a striker and do it quick.


10.) 11 Aug 2017 23:27:59
No mate Roberts played.


11.) 11 Aug 2017 23:36:01
Apologies I didn't realise that an emergency signing could be made. Perhaps I will check and then double check my facts Kev before I give an opinion although you agree with me?


12.) 12 Aug 2017 10:16:21
Having to make emergency signings at all is a sign of bad, even worse, complacent planning. Everybody knew we needed a CB even if Boyata and Shev were fit. They a both bomb scares. Cover for FB after Izzy left. Replacing Roberts with Hayes, who was so out of his depth in Rosenberg, that it was easy to see why Aberdeen eff up every year. Armstrong saga dragging on and Ntcham hasn't found his killer forward pass yet. I think Armstrongs a better player and not playing Rogic astounds me. Hayes getting on before him is bewildering.

If we get through I hope lessons are learned. I doubt that very much though. I had great hopes our CL preparation would change. We were supposed to have things sorted to make qualification easier. That's what Rogers said. Well, it hasn't happened and we go into these games hoping we have a striker and a midfield player at CB.

That is just not good enough. We are praying Paddy comes back, we need him on Wednesday. Forrest and Hayes combined couldn't lace his boots.

We are not trying to flog him for £13.5m. They are going to offer £13.5m. Big difference.

Who says if we spent £20m on 2 defenders we would have qualified? Might have had a better chance but there would be no guarantees.

I don’t think he went there so we must be in pole position now 👍.

Why not deal with hibs again? We offered £2m which hibs didn’t accept. Now villa have offered what hibs see as acceptable. What have hibs done wrong. It’s celtic thinking we can get him on the cheap that’s the problem.

He didn’t say they were untrustworthy. If he had explained that then fair enough. He just shot the OP down with no reason.

He’s not chosen villa. He’s not even talking to them. Villa and hibs are talking about price. If that’s agreed then it’s up to McGinn.

Kev83 I hope you are right. I think though after one game it’s too early to say. I still think you could pick one out of four teams to finish behind us in second.

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.

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.
