Cristian Gamboa from West Brom is the latest right back to be linked. Costa Rican international who is lightening quick but has struggled to get a game for West Brom. 1 year left on his contract so probably available for around £1-2 million.

LM67

1.) 28 Aug 2016 00:25:57
Callum Paterson is the man for me to solve our RB position. And as for a creative midfielder, I'd break the bank for Robert snodgrass.


2.) 28 Aug 2016 00:25:57
Nice price but wait not good enough for West Bromwich but good enough for celtic in champs league.
We should pass and go bigger. Maybe as a squad player but realistically, he's not getting his game at West Bromwich nor has hever so he'd have to prove himself and learn how we play and we have that with janko. Just go and get florian klein (stuttgart) only one year left, gets his game for club and country (austria) and had a good euros.


3.) 28 Aug 2016 10:23:16
Snodgrass has had real injury problems and I heard he had to go off again in yesterdays match against Man Utd?

{Ed001's Note - it was wet and slippy and he slammed into the post trying to get on the end of a cross. Probably only bad bruising knocking the wind out of him, though a broken rib or two at worst. Nothing to weaken his legs, so it won't affect the longevity of his career.}

Rumours of a Russian agent at Celtic Park today. Has lots of players on his books including a keeper who is a free agent. Also rumours of us signing Michel Vorm. Anyone any more info on these?

LM67

1.) 06 Aug 2016 20:01:02
Sorry about spelling gulavov it's the free agent keeper deal nearly done .


2.) 06 Aug 2016 21:01:35
Just had a look for him and he is 33 this year. If we are going to bring in another goalkeeper why not one at 23, 24, 25 who can be a mainstay for years to come?


3.) 06 Aug 2016 23:18:02
Why not just a good one no matter his age.


4.) 07 Aug 2016 09:37:42
Maybe the wrong way of putting across that I would prefer a younger keeper we can invest in and improve rather than another stop gap.

We have to be signing first 11 players only now and an unheard of 32 year old Russian on a free doesn't sound like a good deal to me.


5.) 07 Aug 2016 10:32:48
makes sense to me if we can get a good keeper on a free, keep the dosh for better outfield players.


 

 

03 Jul 2016 11:30:31
African media linking us with 19 year old right back Musa Mohammed who plays his club football in Turkey.

LM67

 

 

18 Jun 2016 07:40:05
Any idea what's happening with Danny Ings Ed? Staying at Liverpool? Coming to us? Going to them? None of the above?

LM67

{Ed001's Note - last I heard he was staying. Klopp does not like loaning out players, he prefers a small squad so he and his staff can work with the players and develop them to suit his way of playing.}


1.) 18 Jun 2016 08:10:07
Thanks Ed. Didn't think he'd be coming to the SPL any time soon. Big future ahead of him.

{Ed001's Note - the media are just linking every player Rodgers has worked with in the past to him. Ings is one of those who Rodgers had success with, to a degree at least, so it does at least make more sense than the stupidity of linking Balotelli with you!}


2.) 18 Jun 2016 10:13:17
I'd love Super Mario! Surely he must be starting to realise that his career is dwindling to nothing and he has to buck up his ideas.

{Ed001's Note - he is not intelligent enough to realise anything.}


3.) 18 Jun 2016 12:19:48
Love super Mario! Let's leave signing baw bags to the mob across the road! Wouldn't touch that half wit with a barge pole! Possibly the most over rated player in the game today! And a complete idiot to boot!


4.) 19 Jun 2016 00:46:20
Where is this boy wonder?
One of the major problems when he came to Liverpool, first is I think he had the football ability of an 18/ 19 year old but he had the maturity of a 12/ 13 year old .
I think that clubs maybe don't look close enough at the character and maturity before signing players, especially players from abroad . Ballotelli wasn't able for the new life .

Will Ajer at 18 be able to handle what is thrown at him in Glasgow .
Keep your daughters away from him 😄😀😬.


5.) 19 Jun 2016 11:10:29
Don't think u can compare there temperaments ob. From what I can see of ajer he's a lot more mature than ballotelli is even now.


6.) 19 Jun 2016 16:47:55
Stephbhoy it's not hard to know Ballotelli's temperament and his immaturity .
Ajer is a different story, he will probably settle ok, but a teenager at home with parents really different from living on own in foreign Country
Loose women can drive a young fell astray.

{Ed007's Note - That's what happened to me :=o


 

 

16 Jun 2016 22:27:10
We've been linked with a move for Christian Atsu in the African press. Could be something in it as it was the African press who first caught on to our move for Wakaso.

LM67

1.) 16 Jun 2016 22:39:13
Who is that?


2.) 17 Jun 2016 06:15:38
Seems like regurgitated stuff from last summer.


3.) 17 Jun 2016 06:25:08
Chelsea winger who has been sent out on loan a few times, most recently to Malaga. Talented player who won player of the tournament at 2015 african nations cup.


4.) 17 Jun 2016 07:36:31
He is talented LM, and probably got that bit more pedigree than some signings we've made, and certainly been linked to. He really needs to settle sonewhere and start kicking his career on now. I've seen the Ghanaian articles you're referring to and the quote the Daily Ranger. Who as far as I can see haven't mentioned him since last year. Not a terrible link at all though.


5.) 17 Jun 2016 08:20:10
I have read about Ing being linked with move to Ibrox this must well seen rangers are back am just wondering do we have the same scouts cause we usual get linked to the same players haha.


6.) 17 Jun 2016 08:47:03
Aye I thought the strangest bit about the article was when it referred to links in the scottish media when there haven't been any. Probably is a realistic target and would be a good signing for us.


7.) 16 Jun 2016 22:49:02
I had him in one of my sun dream teams once thinking he would light the epl up while on loan at Everton don't think he kicked a ball there.


8.) 17 Jun 2016 09:54:57
Isn't this the guy that was asking for crazy wages?


9.) 17 Jun 2016 16:10:25
He has calmed down on the wages front, I saw him 4/ 5 times last season for Malaga, I kinda know that they were paying Chelsea 7k euro nett a week for him, he is fast and intelligent, but the thing for me is that Malaga had a 4 million euro option but did not take it up.


10.) 17 Jun 2016 16:48:20
His goal return leaves a bit to be desired too though. We can do better than this too.


11.) 17 Jun 2016 18:11:47
Can we though? Because our board has been doing a good job of persuading me otherwise.


12.) 17 Jun 2016 18:25:07
We can GB. That is exactly where my frustration lies. We aren't operating in a way that makes us as good as we can be.

What an incredible signing Scott Sinclair has been! Many, myself included, had their doubts over signing him. Think we all knew he had the ability but weren't sure if he had still had the hunger and desire.

His pace and movement have been tremendous in every single game. He never hides. No surprise to see Dembele scoring again now he's back, think he creates a lot of space for him.

The fact he has scored 12 goals, all in different games, shows what a match winner he is for us. I know there are many contenders but he's my player of the year so far.

LM67

1.) 03 Jan 2017 01:33:02
Tbh 67 I knew the lad would be a tremondous signing for us he lost his way for a while but the boy has great feet can score assist and beat his man all you want in a winger also he's fast as lightning its freighning ohhhhhh Scott'y Sinclair he is so wonderful!


2.) 03 Jan 2017 09:39:44
Sinclair is brilliant but he is no Barrie McKay. :)

Nonsense this morning that McKay is better than Roberts and Forrest and would walk into our team. The guy had the beating of Lustig pacewise but he did absolutely nothing of note the whole game. Roberts was on 3 minutes and played his part in the second goal.


3.) 03 Jan 2017 12:29:42
Aye but k shiels reckons b mckay is better haha its no even April.


4.) 03 Jan 2017 15:12:16
Wee mackay looks like a bag of tricks n he was direct, he would do well in a decent team but he wouldn't get near our bench, simple as that.


5.) 03 Jan 2017 17:45:51
Aye am sure kenny shiels opinions will be takin on board by Brendan! Haha. i'll admit that the wee guy McKay is a half decent player but no more than that! Look how many chances paddy Roberts created in the 25 min he was on, many did McKay make the whole game? Like I said I won't be as bitter to say he's Shoite but he's no better than decent and would get nowhere near our team!


6.) 03 Jan 2017 22:08:16
shiels is just a horrible wee hurting loyalist who's views should always be ignored.


 

 

03 Nov 2016 23:41:19
Any idea if we have a sell on clause on van Dijk and if so what percentage are we due? Surely by next summer he is going to go for a fortune! £30mil at least.

LM67

{Ed007's Note - Off the top of my head it's 10%, we definitely have one though.}


1.) 04 Nov 2016 08:54:15
Think he is definitely going to be a class act. At Celtic he was majestic in most domestic games and strolled through many without breaking sweat - and he had a goal or two in him as well.
He needed a more difficult challenge and seems to be doing very well.
It's always sad to lose any decent players, when we are trying to build a side ourselves, but there is always going to be ambitious talent who use us as a stepping stone - but as long as they give 100% while they put on the hoops, I just have to accept it.


2.) 04 Nov 2016 07:44:08
is it a percentage fee on the profit southampton make though or the full fee ed.

{Ed007's Note - On any profit.}


3.) 04 Nov 2016 08:45:20
any truth that Man Utd are looking at him Ed?

{Ed007's Note - Arsenal, Chelsea and Utd are all interested in van Dijk.}


4.) 04 Nov 2016 12:59:11
Liverpool are also being linked with him. Far better player than John Stones, so I don't think he will go on the cheap.

{Ed007's Note - That's just media speculation, Rab, so far Liverpool haven't shown any interest in him but that could change - they do like to buy Southampton players.}


5.) 04 Nov 2016 13:31:45
That's him starting to get the praise of the English media after strolling their league for about 15 months now. Only now is he a good player, only now he's worth decent money and only now has he proven himself at a good level. Boils my blood.


6.) 04 Nov 2016 14:40:31
I heard Micky Quinn on Talksport saying Liverpool were interested and would test the water in January. Whether or not that happens remains to be seen.


7.) 04 Nov 2016 16:59:23
Look at the dross man u and some of the top clubs have and they could have had him for the 12 mill Southampton payed but now he'll go for negative millions and the 10 % will do nicely.


 

 

23 Oct 2016 16:36:31
Excellent performance. Every bit as good as the 5-1. Finishing could have been better but credit to their keeper. Brown was immense. Jozo was superb. Armstrong was great off the bench. What a finish from Moussa! World class goal.

LM67

{Ed007's Note - Has Armstrong bulked up a good bit or were my eyes playing tricks on me? I was delighted to see him get on and play so well, now hopefully he can get a run in the team beside Brown rather than Bitton.}


1.) 23 Oct 2016 17:05:19
I thought that too. He brought so much energy to the team. I think he'll get a start midweek.


2.) 23 Oct 2016 17:06:28
Armstrong definitely looks like he's been in the gym.
I would have him over biton any day.
Can't stand how biton pulls out of a challenge.


3.) 23 Oct 2016 17:08:28
My only gripe today and it is a minor one. Thought Roberts should have came on as Forrest was not having much joy today as he was denied space.

Other than that I thought we dominated the match. Brown was immense.


4.) 23 Oct 2016 16:46:21
Was going to say has Armstrong been on the steroids.

{Ed007's Note - He definitely looked bigger to me.}


5.) 23 Oct 2016 16:47:58
He had a decent game when he came on, could be proven wrong about us buying him. Bitton definitely needs to be challenged.


6.) 23 Oct 2016 16:50:47
Now it's over I can look back and see how easy it was, although during the game I wasn't enjoying it as much. It looked like one of them days where they were going to snatch a goal. Having said that it was impressive how strong we looked at the end considering we had a really hard game on Wednesday while they rested up. I thought brown was superb today, even taking the booking to tell Thompson what he thought of his performance. Armstrong looked really good as been already said. Forrest and Biton are not doing enough at the minute . Don't know what game the magic man was watching if he thinks they r getting near us .


7.) 23 Oct 2016 16:51:27
Couldn't agree more ed biton looks unfit and uninterested. Also think as soon as griffiths came on we made a load more chances as he linked up really with with dembele.

{Ed007's Note - I've stuck up for Bitton because I think he is technically a good player and the way he can slow play down and keep the ball is important in Europe at times but his recent form has been really poor.}


8.) 23 Oct 2016 17:22:22
I was very happy when we signed him and although he started with a bang, he lost his way a bit after the transition to a huge club and was he was also continually played out of position, which didn't help.
At present we are as good as a man short, when Bitton plays and I think Armstrong will get better playing and learning alongside Brown.


9.) 23 Oct 2016 17:26:54
Guys I am clinging to hope that some club will pay us for both Forrest and Biton and we can reinvest money into better players.
As for today, although we dominated, and all they wanted was to keep score down, I thought we were a little off thepace, especially Sinclair. First half the chances he and Rogic missed made game harder than it should have been.


10.) 23 Oct 2016 17:27:31
Got to agree on Bitton, he is becoming a weak link for us. Seems to be very pedestrian in the big games and shirks the challenge. I also thought that Forrest had tried all he could and introducing Patrick Roberts with 15 to go may have produced more chances. Apart from that, a good all round performance against a team probably no better than St Johnstone or Inverness Caley. Bring on the sheep for our first of the treble!

{Ed007's Note - The only way we would have lost today was if it had went to penalties and it's a lottery. TRIFC offered absolutely nothing as an attacking threat and as you say, Rab, they're no better than an ICT. They set up not to get pumped again, it's as simple as that but we dominated the game for long spells and if the Sviatchenko goal had been given - or any the earlier chances went in - we'd have went on and won the match quite comfortably.}


11.) 23 Oct 2016 17:28:17
Think it's got to be between Armstrong n Henderson to take up that position in front of biton, on today's display u would think Armstrong will get the nod. He's a good player full of energy n certainly took the ball n was positive with it. Longer term Armstrong n Henderson central for me would be a good midfield.
Good result n performance, although again we could have pressed a bit more at times although over the context of the game it wasn't much n we controlled the game as I'd expect against that new team.
Brown, dominant n pressed well n was good on the ball, felt rogic was unlucky to come off n said on the rumours page Roberts should have come on 4 Forrest but other than that I couldn't n wouldn't complain. A semi final won with the final against the sheep who I feel we will be too much for on the day. All in all a good days work, sevco put in their place again.
Hail hail.


12.) 23 Oct 2016 18:03:06
At half time hartson hit the nail on the head when he said "only one team are trying to win this game"

And that team won!

{Ed007's Note - I missed him saying that but there's no arguing against his point.}


13.) 23 Oct 2016 18:03:14
Time for someone else to have a run in the team over Bitton. Will only make him a better player losing his place and having to work hard to get it back. The game changed when Armstrong came on he looked a unit and had tonnes of pace about him. Just needs to work on his finishing still.


14.) 23 Oct 2016 19:14:01
What about Christie?


15.) 23 Oct 2016 19:44:42
am i the only one that thinks sinclair should have been subbed, that's the last two games he has'nt turned up.


 

 

01 Oct 2016 07:58:12
With regards to our lack of clean sheets, I read an interview with Pep last night and he said that earning a clean sheet is something that it is only obsessed about in the UK, while in Spain and Germany its about creating chances and scoring goals. I'm with him on that. I'm happy to concede in every game if we are scoring 5 or 6 at the other end! At our current rate we are on course for 145 league goals this season! That must be a british record at least! COYBIG.

LM67

1.) 01 Oct 2016 10:50:55
Not everything the wonderful Pep says is correct. All great teams are built on a solid defence.


2.) 01 Oct 2016 10:51:11
the best attacking teams will concede imo LM, the best football I've seen celtic play was the great man Tommy Burns team, his team always conceded too, newcastle under keegan etc, give me a 4-3 anyday of the week than a boring 1-0.


3.) 01 Oct 2016 11:00:48
The British record I believe is 134 goals scored in season 1960/ 1961 by Plymouth or Portsmouth can't remember now I only read it 10 mins ago too lol.


4.) 01 Oct 2016 11:29:07
Tommy won one trophy in his time at celtic (keegan won zilch) where you/ would you be happy with that.

{Ed007's Note - If clean sheets aren't important then why the hell did Man City spend £32 million on Otamendi and £47.5 million on John Stones? Yet another contradiction from the fraud that is Guardiola.}


5.) 01 Oct 2016 11:42:19
DRB i never mentioned trophies i said that i would rather play all out attack than playing defensive minded football to grind results out bud.


6.) 01 Oct 2016 12:12:31
Maybe he bought these players because he thought they were great players?


7.) 01 Oct 2016 12:28:05
Scoring goals is important but so is keeping it tight at the back.
Both us and city scored 3 goal mid week. That should enough to win any game.
Same as the caly game we score 2 we should win the game.
Clean sheets are important.


8.) 01 Oct 2016 16:45:49
I don't know why he bought Stones, as he doesn't play him often . On match of the day last season, someone described Stones as the best centre half in the world .

Every manager whose team has just kept a clean sheet will tell u how important they are .
Every manager whose team has won 4-2 will tell u they are not over concerned with a clean sheet as long as they won.

{Ed007's Note - It was certainly important for us today.}


9.) 01 Oct 2016 17:35:56
Ed, why do u think pep is a fraud? Is it because he has walked into some of the best teams in the world without workin his way up the managerial ladder? Or is it sumfin else?

{Ed007's Note - He couldn't fail at Barca, he took Bayern back the way and now he's at a Club with a bottomless pit of money, what has he actually done to deserve the plaudits he gets and lauded as one of the best coaches in the game?
He's also involved in the doping in Spain up to his neck and he himself only had his own ban from during time playing in Italy overturned in 2009 in what was no more than dodgy football politics to keep his squeaky clean image intact.}


10.) 01 Oct 2016 17:59:31
True, that Barcelona team could win wifoot a manager, I knew you would have more info on him ie the doping. i didn't know that. cheers mate.

{Ed007's Note - I think the Barca team just now is far better than Pep's was, that extreme tiki-taka was monotonous and predictable to watch for my liking.}


11.) 01 Oct 2016 20:19:57
No doubt when you only score one goal a clean sheet is invaluable .

I think you might be right about the current Barcelona team being the best.


12.) 02 Oct 2016 11:04:41
Only until the next best Barcelona team lol.


 

 

13 Sep 2016 22:50:48
Fouls: Barcelona 9 Celtic 3

Tells you all you need to know. Stood off them, let them play their own game, didn't put a foot in, showed them too much respect.

This could be the way it goes for us in Europe under BR, his love for beautiful football could cost us. that's why we did so well under Lennon in Europe, he made sure every player got stuck in.

Wouldnt swap BR for anyone but hope he can change his principles or we'll get a hiding in every game.

LM67

1.) 13 Sep 2016 23:19:40
Au don't think B R principles will get us a hiding in every game . This season so far we have had a hiding once and the team that we were trying to play against have often demonstrated their ability to get anyone who gets too close and puts in a tackle sent off We committed one foul within 25 yds of our goals and it created a goal
At least we haven't weaken our team for our next outing by having players sent off tonight.


2.) 14 Sep 2016 00:09:53
LM67 not sure if you are aware, Lennons last CL campaign we got beat 6-1 off Barcelona at Nou Camp. Utter bollocks to suggest that Lennon would of done better tonight facing possibly the best front line in europe- Messi, Neymar and Suarez. Think a lot of better class teams than us will take a hiding this season off Barcelona. Are you going to write to them and say "Sign Lenny from Hibs? Great manager in europe! "

Also that season we gained 3 points from 18, scored 3 goals 14 against in a far easier group than we have now. Great campaign!


3.) 14 Sep 2016 00:13:27
This is one of the softest Celtic sides I have ever seen right through the side and the defenders/ midfield almost have an 'after you Claude' way about them with few exceptions.
No one is asking for hatchet men or thugs like some teams prefer, but where's leadership of a McNeill or the Paul Elliot/ Bobo Balde stopper or the Brogan/ McGrain/ Boyd tacklers and the battling, grafting midfielders like Auld, McLeod, Aitken, Ledley or Wanyama. ( I could give more examples)
Scott Brown does at least a double shift when Bitton plays and I know Barcelona were scintillating at times but any of our goalkeepers in the past ten years would have saved at least a couple of them and possibly BR has made a serious mistake signing De Vries.
The back 5 was not working as a unit and the right side was particularly ineffective, but we persevered and got punished.
Obviously the heads will go down as we see when we roll over someone like that, but we should at least put up a fight and show some pride in that jersey and what it represents.
Seen a lot of heavy defeats over the decades that made me angry, disappointed, embarrassed or even distraught; but never felt as physically sick as I did watching us lose seven goals to zero.


4.) 14 Sep 2016 00:30:05
so we kick them all over the park, get beat and pick up needless yellows - or even reds and get humped anyway AND have players banned for the "more important" games. AND our great rep gets tarnished as we kicked them all over the park.

I actually think the players accepted their fate and didn't kill themselves tonight - big game at weekend.


5.) 14 Sep 2016 00:56:29
I was 11 in 67 so you would of been happy if it was 7-1 tonight? One of the worst statements i have ever heard! End of the day we had no chance tonight at Nou Camp aganist them. They are streets ahead of us and no matter who was captain, would not have made slightest difference.


6.) 14 Sep 2016 08:47:18
I don't think anyone suggested that we should kick them up and down the park but let's put a couple of markers in to let them know we're there on the pitch. I was embarrassed how easily we capitulated in the second half and even more embarrassed how many people are willing to "take it on the chin". 7 nil for fecks sake!


7.) 14 Sep 2016 09:13:24
DesH nobody likes getting hammered, but end of the day we were up against 3 strikers that scored 90 of their teams 112 league goals last season. That and fact they done this in a league far stronger than SPL that regularly destroyed teams at least 5-0 last season.

I get the impression you think cause we are in CL we are a CL standard team. We are not, We are Europa league standard. I personally think it won't be long untill scottish football loses CL place.


8.) 14 Sep 2016 10:11:07
DN30; where and when did I say I would have been happy with a 7-1?
My point was our lack of fight, closing down, covering and tackling and the fact I had just watched my teams biggest ever defeat in my lifetime - while others are admiring the opposition and praising our capitulation - because it was Barcelona.
We have faced Europe's best many times and lost, but I have never seen a Celtic side stand off and surrender without any resistance.
As I said I have seen many heavy defeats in all competitions over the decades, but this seven goal thrashing hurts the most and there is no excuse or consolation that will stop me feeling this bad.


9.) 14 Sep 2016 11:09:20
Ffs, we are at the show now, what does everyone expect? Did not expect us to get destroyed but it is what it is, we are where want to be.


10.) 14 Sep 2016 13:33:41
Well your impressions wrong DH30. I am totally aware of our place in football and the Champions league isn't one of them. I'm amazed though how many people are taking this result so well. 7 nil for goodness sake in a major embarrassment in anyone's book. It doesn't matter that we were playing Barcelona. Far to much respect and hardly a tackle of any notice.


11.) 14 Sep 2016 23:28:05
Des H *DN30.

Just watched a few clips of him, looks a class act, capable of playing across the front line. Still think we'll see one more player come in before the window closes a few outgoings too.

Good stuff. Glad to see we are still after players outwith the EPL!

Any truth in this Ed? Seems too random to be made up.

LM67

{Ed007's Note - It seems to be true but we'll need to apply for a work permit under the 'exceptional talent' clauses (like Wanyama) as he doesn't meet the requirements. I don't see any problems with it though but there's always that possibility.}

Can you imagine a midfield pairing of McCarthy and Broony!? It would be incredible!

Is he a big enough name to be given a posh seat though Ed? If he was just over for the game would he not have had to buy a ticket off his own back and sit with the regular punters? If he had been invited over by the club and given a kooshty number last night you'd think there must be something in it.

{Ed007's Note - Nagbe or his agent could have got tickets from sponsors, he's with WMG which is one of the biggest Sports and Media agencies in the world after taking over SFX and they could get prime tickets for any sporting event in the world, Robbie Keane is represented by the same agency and Jackie McNamara is/was with them too, either of them could have arranged tickets. The trip could have been planned months ago to tie in with the MLS close season and tickets been arranged then with a phone call from WMG. It's easy enough to get a 'posh' ticket if you know the right people, and the fact I've sat in there more than a few times shows they'll let anyone in!
I just can't see the Club allowing any potential signing to go public and attract so much attention using social media. It's a bit odd that he hasn't been at Lennoxtown as well if we are trying to sign him.}

Who else have you mentioned JimTim? Interested to see where they are at? Think one we should go for is Rajkovic of Tel Aviv. Great young keeper

£20m is nothing these days. Villa spent £15mil on Kodija and £14mil on McCormack in the Summmer, 2 players who had never played higher than the Championship. Dembele has succeeded at that level and now at champions league level while also scoring 5 against them, a few for france u21s and goals in cup semi/ final. Plus he's only 20! Teams won't just be paying for current ability they'll be paying for future potential. I'd say we are on a par with Basle in terms of budget, big fish in small pond etc. They sold Breel Embolo to Schalke for £25mil in the summer. Dembele is worth at least £30mil.

Was a deal for Mannone in place/ on the cards before Pickfords injury Ed? Gordon has improved but still very poor decision maker - he tried to do a Neuer again at Ibrox!

LM67

{Ed007's Note - There wasn't a deal in place but there were talks with Sunderland as Rodgers was open to letting De Vries leave and wanted Mannone to replace him and challenge Gordon.}

Think the board have now realised that the only way to reach the CL and pocket the millions we get from being in it is by having a top quality manager and letting him spend a bit of cash improving what we have. They'll continue to back Rodgers because they'll be scared to lose him and then the CL money. Think we are in for an exciting January and Summer window.
