Sorry Mally but where is the evidence of a player doing well in CL with Celtic and moving to a "bigger club"? Seems to me the current trend would be to do well and move to a mid table EPL club and then a move to top 4 once established. Careers are short can come to a premature end after one badly timed tackle. If we strip emotion out of it you can see why a player would move.


1.) 18 Jul 2017 19:22:58
Not the current trend mate. It's the past trend. No longer should we sell our players to piss poor EPL teams for low prices. If they want Armstrong give us 10 million or sod off.

Well gib remember wanyama and big fraser getting a lot of attention after the Barcelona win and vvd did well also in CL the fees were partly imo to do with doing well in europe and not so much spfl moussa also after the goals in cl last year.

3.) 18 Jul 2017 22:55:46
That's my point, loads of attention. ended up at MOR. Dembele hasn't actually moved yet. Perhaps after a few success stories the trend might change but I don't see it myself. Anyway, in saying all that he'll probably stay now!

Larson done well at Celtic then moved to a big champions league club . in fact he went to two of them! HH.



18 Jul 2017 09:08:03
If Armstrong goes then thanks for the service and good luck. Fact is he will no doubt triple his wages and pit his wits against some fantastic players on a near weekly basis. We cannot offer him that. Perhaps if he was a die hard fan he would stay a little longer. The desire to be a Celtic Legend might be our ambition but it's been quite some time since we had a squad full of players born in the shadow of paradise.


1.) 18 Jul 2017 12:03:55
If he stayed and did well in cl a competition he'll not be involved in if he goes to some of the mediocre clubs he's linked with he wi eventually get a better move to better club but he needs to look beyond the pound.



16 Jul 2017 20:19:42
The problem we will always have while we are in the Scottish league is that those who perform well will undoubtedly be offered considerable riches elsewhere and 9/ 10 will leave at the earliest opportunity. How we protect ourselves against what would seem to be an envitable drop in standard is by having a top management team who can attract and develop talent. In BR we trust.


1.) 17 Jul 2017 09:12:22
I'm hearing, probably a whole load of crap though, that it's a lower EPL team offering £45k a week and that Arsenal are going to move for Dembele.

I think another good season in the CL would get him a better move. As I said, might all be the guy who knows a guy stuff. When we start going for a striker we will know Dembele is off.

2.) 17 Jul 2017 12:28:05
How much is he on at present? . and should he be on parity with Brown Sinclair or whoever the top earner is.

3.) 17 Jul 2017 13:24:13
I read he was earning £10k, albeit I have no idea about the reliability. I personally think he is worth the bump to match the top bracket earners.

I can see why a lot of people are getting annoyed though. I honestly think he would be wise to stay with us for a few more years before heading for the riches elsewhere. I think he could eventually seal a move to a club at a higher level than those being linked with him at the minute, if that's where his aspirations lie.

I can't help feeling he owes us a couple more seasons given the money we paid for him. 6 months of good football in return is selling us short. Saying that, I am sure we will at least treble the transfer fee we paid if we move him on.

4.) 17 Jul 2017 15:42:17
What do you think off possibility off a move for DSturridge even loan see how that goes. The boy clearly need's a home.

5.) 17 Jul 2017 19:19:42
Spends more time on treatment table than on the park bull.

6.) 17 Jul 2017 21:17:07
I can't see him earning £10k currently, we got him for next to nothing, and replacing him will be millions, give him a good deal.



20 May 2017 23:24:57
This £11m for ibrokes war chest made me think of something that's bothered me for sometime. If I pay an employee £10p/ hr the cost to the business is more like £13p/ hr after factoring in NI/ pension contribution. So my question is when player wages are spoken of e. g 25k p/ Wk is this factored in?


{Ed007's Note - In Scotland I think if you earn over £150,000 p.a gross you pay 45% in tax. That's about my knowledge of it, I invest in Tena and film companies to cover it after taking advice from Jamies ;)

1.) 21 May 2017 11:40:51
In answer to your question GE, No it's not so the club meet they obligations . In terms of your big stars in the EPL Like Yaya and Sanchez etc they ask for a NETT figure and let the club gross it up so to speak

The EPL have strict "check's" in place that all contributions to HMRC are being met probably in quarterly reports mate given the fiasco's that happened @ Porstmouth and Leeds

Sadly, Our SFA Don't follow that lead and in actual fact Craig Whyte sought administration given the fact that he had stopped making said contributions after the Malmao defeat in the CL

You really have to "tip your hat" lol to Ed following his "advisor" recently the former vice-chairmen @ Rangers Donald Findlay QC said in court "That SDM had sought FISCAL advice from a FAILED solicitor and a PORN STAR! " That's like phoning a brickie to solve your plumbing problem and a bad brickie at that

So it is in fact all about the movies mate lol (Y)

{Ed007's Note - You're just jealous you've not got 'pornstar' on your CV.}

Apparently according to some, if Scott Sinclair had any ambition he would leave Celtic to play in the greatest league in the world. Ambition is the reason he should stay as SS knows he won't get a move to top 4 and if he did his game time might be limited.

He's 28 and effectively run out of time to go to a mid table team and impress for a bigger move as he'll be closer to 30 by time that plan came to fruition. He's at a club where he is welcomed, respected and adored.

A club that has bags full of ambition and the prospect of champions league football. Why would he leave that for the likes of mid table epl fodder where the only thing you can realistically win is 3 points on a Saturday. Can't put a 1-0 win against Burnley on the mantlepiece.


1.) 09 May 2017 13:49:20
He earned his move to City with some fine performances, and was within his right to take that opportunity. It was obviously a step too far for him but hindsight is a fine thing and City could easily be blamed for stalling his career. Miserable spells (basically playing as a full back) at West Brom and Villa followed. He's said how happy he is here and despite an inferior league there are clearly benefits and pleasures Celtic can give a man that your West Broms et al can't.

2.) 09 May 2017 14:12:55
I agree completely!
If anyone does well in Scotland - having hard a hard time in England - according to the gurus in the south, it proves how much better their league is. The same applies when someone does the same thing the other way around. They throw this at us all the time and is boring in the extreme.
Sinclair was too good for Villa but they never utilised him properly - that's the difference. He is saying that he is happy in Scotland and wants to stay at Celtic. I think it's the right thing for him to do as he can shine in Europe as well as domestically, as you say, he is adored up here (by human beings. ) and I'll be delighted if he stays for the rest of his career.

3.) 09 May 2017 15:48:22
All this rubbish about them being better than us is complete and utter tosh guys.
Do not believe the hype, our record against English opposition in Europe is actually very good, after all how else do we compare apart from games against each other.
Its all very well they going further in Europe year after year but they have the odds stacked in their favour.

We do not get the benefit of being top seeds like they do.
Look at Leicester got to last 8 of CL but got an easier group due to being seeded and they never been in the CL.

We would progress further if we were top seeds every year and the money it brings, as I said we can ONLY compare matches and best to my knowledge Celtic and Rangers have a better record than them last 25 years or so.
God we only beat 2 of them on the way to Seville lol.

Hi, I am back and I hope my new username means everyone will know who I am and won't rely on help of others .
I am disappointed that the cheating club, now dead is mentioned as been like us successful .
Really that is far too generous towards them.

{Ed007's Note - Hey, Chris, it's nice to see you back auld yin (yes)

5.) 09 May 2017 18:21:05

Welcome back chrissy bhoy what's been happening? You well?

10.) 10 May 2017 16:14:36
I am in Limbo, I was in hospital about 6- 8 weeks ago for tests including brain scan, but apart from confirming it was approximately in right area, I haven't heard anything since .
Maybe the good weather or maybe the ease Celtic have swatted away other teams, I feel fine .

{Ed007's Note - What happened during the scan to make you go deaf? ;)

Yes, Pete where is this book? He seemed to have done plenty of research and yet not even a first draft anywhere to be seen.

Did you happen to see if they were flying to Turin? Perhaps a spot of shopping? A designer hand bag and a luxury midfielder.

It really doesn't matter if Rangers are new or old. As far as I'm concerned it's currently still a team from Govan who play in blue at the delapidated Ibrox stadium. It's simply enjoyable to call you sevco etc. It's like picking a scab. Apologies if it scars you. Now off you pop and buy yourself some commas and full stops so those who went to school can understand what you're saying.

And yet here you are on a CELTIC forum. Of course we care about you. That's the nature of a rivalry. Winding you up and rubbing your noses in the steaming pile of failure that continually drips out the arse of your club is just part of it.

Perhaps, but considering its been more than 20 years since Scotland was even considered a half decent footballing nation it means very little.
