Fulham bid 10 million euros for finboggason before they signed mitroglu we would never have been able to compete for his signature yet it was all people kept going on about. Hopefully now we can all accept he will never be a celtic player
1.) You're probably right but he'll go for less in the summer as he will only have a year left on his contract. It's almost a replica of the Hooper scenario from last year.
2.) Why? Wasn't he available for 6mil?

It's sad the way football has gone OB1, it is now run by TV money. Teams like Fulham, Southampton, Hull etc able to outbid a club as huge as Celtic is tragic.When we identify any decent player that can improve us there is always a club from a cash laden league who will outbid us. I honestly think the way we are run is perfect for the environment we are in. Our dealings in the transfer market recently have been impressive, not all of them I know but Wanyama, Forster, Ki, Ledley, Van Dijk to name a few have put us in a very strong position. John Park is doing some job just hope he doesn't get poached by some inferior TV money laden club .
4.) I get what your saying 0B1. But not entirely true!
€10mil is roughly £6mil.
Herenveen Need the money and Finnbohassons contract will mean less by the summer.
From what we are being spoon fed by the board and NL, that type of deal is doable but in the real world, yeah he won't be at Celtic as we are being sold down the river!
5.) We had our chance last summer and done usual cut corners and signed pukki £2.6m. Add griffith £1.5m and balde £1.4m comes to £5.5m. I reckon we could of doubled our money in a couple of seasons if we got finnbogasson last summer
6.) We were more than able to compete for his signature in the summer but after a second season where he has continued to bang in the goals it was inevitable his value would rise as other clubs became interested.
We missed the boat with Finbogasson at a time when he could have been bought for a reasonable price but because our board won't budge from it's rigid signing policy he is now way beyond our reach.

BBJ 10 Million euros roughly 6 million quid? when were you last abroad more like 9 million quid
8.) @bigbadjohn €10million is £8.3million mate
9.) Tried to post a couple of days ago on here about poitr parzyszek who just signed for charlton I think? Polish player, 6ft 2 20 year old . 16 goals in 20 games and only 20 years old! Bet the guy is worth a bomb I years to come! Big powerfull lad with great hold up / link up and an eye for goal!
10.) Pukki was £2.2 and griffiths £800k balde £1.7 m so that's £4.7m
11.) After NL says "strikers are at a premium" do hope we invest accordingly. Pukki is more like stokes and will come good. Griffiths is a good back up for summer signing.
12.) Lol sorry lads a was thinking $ for some reason my mistake :0
Wow bit of a jump, but not surprising given the way he's playing.
Makes it worse then that we missed out on him before if it were ever a possibility?
Same stands though,,
Won't be worth as much come the summer and he won't be at Celtic
13.) We missed out the year before when we could have had him for 1 mil before herenveen signed him

Guidetti picks No.9 jersey No.7 lies empty still
1.) Think it's a good thing he doesn't get the number seven jersey from now on at celtic I think number seven should be earned and not given or picked
2.) @1. Disagree mate.
3.) 06 Sep 2014 05:31:22
Personally I think the number 7 should have been retired when jinky passed away. Might sound silly to some people but would have been a nice gesture for the greatest ever celt
4.) The number 7 top should never go to a guy who is only on loan
5.) To me its only a number, to young players it could be something to aspire to, our shirts where famous for not having numbers, when did we actually start wearing numbers on our jerseys, I remember uefa forced us to wear them for Europe was it het early 80s?
6.) Sorry thought i'd posted full reply. Meant to say I disagree cause some of the greatest players to play for club have started with number 7 on their back.
Also to say it should be earned could cause problems. What if there are 2/3 players who are all playing amazing football who want number 7, who do you pick?

Vito Hammershoy-Mistrati probably misspelled but it's his best mate he says. Plays in Danish 1st division.
14 Aug 2016 20:45:51
He had a pic on twitter earlier this week saying his mate was over. He plays for some lower league team possibly was him.
30 Jul 2016 14:00:14
He was mate, but was always a forward thinking player or no10 if you like. I would like a box to box player that arrives late on the end of things or gets beyond strikers. No doubt though that Commons was a great player for us if he had pace he would likely have played at a higher level.

I think O'Connell looks a good addition to the cb role. Him Toure Sviatchenko and Sumunovic not bad but one more would be good. We have never replaced Petrov as a goalscoring midfielder. Unless Armstrong picks up his game a central midfielder getting beyond strikers is a must for me also. Especially with the quality Roberts has shown would lay on a barrel load for someone of that ilk.

Seen on twatter that we have had a bid just over 2 million with add ons accepted and he will be holding talks in next 48hrs.
