I have just read that the Edouard transfer fee was as follows
4.5 million + add ons for champions league group stage qualifing for four years + extra if capped for france + his agent and wages for four years
Total 9 million that would tie in with what BR said.

I can’t believe what you’ve just described is the biggest potential outlay ever by the club, which is what they said in the club statement. Sutton and Lennon were both £6m and must surely have been on at least £25k per week in wages.


2.) 17 Jun 2018 01:44:09
I'll concede that the deal has been done ;) . As far as the contractually binding bump up fees go? . Your a country mile ahead jono. I've not seen the paperwork. No one has. Unless James Forrest decides to write a novela of his life so far with a tasty insider tell all and spills the beans we will never know.


3.) 18 Jun 2018 11:38:58
What’s your source for this breakdown?

I see we are being linked to a Newcastle defender. They are quoting a price of 8 million it will never happen at that cost no way will Pl or BR sanction that for a player who could not even play in a mediocre PL team.
Also i have not seen any interest in Stuart Armstrong from any sites he will be lucky to get a move to a average championship club. He would be better off staying where he is on improved terms.
And finally i believe that the deal for Osmund Edouard would be more like the same as that of Ntcham.

What is the score with Eric Shevchenko is he just waiting for january and a move.

1.) 16 Nov 2017 16:12:19
He's available for selection this weekend.

I see cape town are saying we have signed Coetzee. no offical announcement.
I will wait until it is announced, after all we still await his arrival in Glasgow and taken a medical.
He still has to agree terms and i will wait till i see him in the green and white.

I see BR is being linked with a Toulouse midfielder harly a position we are short of cover for. I hope someone has got the wromg player and it is Issy Diop real class could be better than VVD.

jonace

1.) 04 Aug 2017 20:43:08
Agreed Jonace. We've got a load of midfielders. No need there. Who does Issy Diop play for and how much would he cost?


2.) 04 Aug 2017 21:35:36
But he can play right back, centre half, up front and even in goals so a perfect midfield signing for us!


3.) 05 Aug 2017 04:48:12
Diop plays for Toulouse look him up on Utube a powerhouse with lightning pace 6ft5ins really strong defender, Although you cannot be sure from video he looks a player. As for price who can tell in this market after Neymar eerything is going out the window who wouldhae thought we would pay 4.5 million for a player to sit on the bench.


4.) 05 Aug 2017 09:55:23
Gaffer said no defender coming in.


5.) 05 Aug 2017 18:17:24
Does he have any coaching badges nialH? Sounds like the dug's ;)

Now that we have had a few days to analized the game I would like to air my thoughts.
This is not the first time we have been in this position over the last 18 years. Henrik and MON both decided enough was enough and left after we failed to strenghen when we had achieved brilliant success.
We then brought in GS and only after the Bratislava debacle did we give him the funds to strengten. He left when Naka left and again we failed to replace appropiately
We followed that by paying compensation for a manager who was about to be sacked
Then again we paid out good money on bad buying Fortune when we could have bought Fletcher {I know he ended up a poor player but that was after his injury.
Then realizing our mistake we gave NL the team to rebuild which took 2 seasons clearing the old and bringing in the new. I could continue to point out the pattern of failing to strengthen when sucessful and buying cheaply to replace very good players who leave seeking a club willing to build on success. I fear MD and BR may leave soon and we will repeat the same mistakes.
Lastly I would like to point out the one common factor throughout this period Peter Lawell.

jonace

1.) 16 Aug 2018 20:48:43
Fletcher was a poor player before injury.


2.) 17 Aug 2018 07:28:29
Did Martin not leave because of his wife’s ill health?


 

 

05 Aug 2018 22:30:34
Hibs will be our biggest challenge this year with Hearts pushing for third the rest nowhere.

jonace

1.) 05 Aug 2018 22:42:29
Hibs will be there abouts. Too early to say who else will do anything. Rangers will sign Lafferty so they will get stronger and Hearts weaker. Aberdeen can't hack it when the pressure is on them so we will need to wait and see. let's see what happens at tyncastle next weekend.


2.) 05 Aug 2018 23:24:59
Watched the Rangers game last night, saw the usual hurling of objects at Aberdeen player taking a corner.

What I don't understand, why do they still chant about Engurland and Lizzie, when it was she that wanted her unpaid taxes and ended up liquidating them?

{Ed007's Note - At least they seem to have cut down on singing about the IRA.}


3.) 06 Aug 2018 03:41:29
ED, I totally agree, it's the year 2018, about time all that pish was buried.
There are morons on both sides, sadly alwaye will be, i'm thankful my 2 sons weren't exposed to it.

Last nights game was disappointing but a relief to come away without losing a goal.
Hendry was fantastic in defence considering that was just his fourth CL game and the first against good opposition.
Ntcham was a concern never as good away from home as he is at Parkhead' Niether was Armstrong if memory sevres me right I would have like to see Kouassi come on to see what he could do along side Brown, who carried the midfield. Without the creative passing of Ntcham: Macgregor and Edourd faided to make an impact not thier fault they need the service. Teirneys injury and Sinclair lack of positive thought meant nothing came down the left though with Hayes, Morgan and Arzani should give options there but I would still like to see cover for LB. If we make the CL group stages love to se us bid for Gerbhart from Wolfsburg Can play LCB, LB and LM and better FB than Teirney seriously good player and if we don't get McGinn a big offer for Tom Arnold another class act.

When was Tierney injured was it after 85 mins, that didn't affect his role last night .
A shakey first half followed by an excellent second half .
I thought the blondy haired left back was probably their best player, I was disappointed that Gamboa and Forrest didn't push up more into their half and take him back to his left corner . He was given the freedom of the park playing in open space between Gamboa and Forrest.

Hi just seen the team news only changes are Hayes and Lusnig on the subs bench does anyone know who has dropped out from the subs Ralston and Allan? And does that mean perhaps on their way out on loan or permenent.

jonace

1.) 01 Aug 2018 18:59:17
Aye was Ralston and Allan on bench last week if my old memory serves me right.


2.) 02 Aug 2018 23:04:45
Why do we always have to try to second guess B Rodgers . First of all Lustig had to take a position on bench as he must be very close to been ready to play a full game, that would take Ralston off bench (wouldn't go with 2 right backs on bench) Hayes would cover at least 3 wing position ( Forrest, Tierney and Sinclair ) So sensible to make changes on bench.

Hello Everybody I am always excited at this time of year checking all the time to see who we are signing or what are the current rumours.
Whilst it has been no different this year I have not been as worried that we have not signed anybody new.
I have stated on here previously that teams need to find 6 to 8 new players each season to replace those who leave. However we have only lost 2 players from the squad so far Armstrong and Roberts and we have replaced the latter with Morgan and possibly Arzani coming too. I would be surprized if Paddy returns as he could upset the development of these two players, but in BR i trust.
IF Armstrong's replacement is to be Mcginn I would be delighted but if Hibs want to play hardball wait till January and get him for free meantime we could bring in a loan for a year say someone like Foden from Man Citycould work well for both clubs.
the only remaining question is at CB if no one leaves and Commper fills the gap on the left then I would be quite happy but I would want him and Simunovic to prove there fitness and Boyata to sign a new deal. That would only leave the problem of backup left back as a concern.

jonace

1.) 01 Aug 2018 18:25:36
Would take Foden in loan for 2 years. Not been following any of their pre season so not sure if any of the Ed's know if Foden has featured much or if he's in their immediate plans or not?

{Ed007's Note - I've no idea sorry.}

would you accept 12 or hold out. If the clubs policy is to develop players to sell is this the maximum return we can expect for a player who was considered a liablity just 12 months ago. Could we find potential before the window closes.

I live near Bournemouth and you would not believe the arrogance of English supporters. When you ask why KT would leave a great club like Celtic they reply but it is the Premier League as if it is the Holy Grail. PL is not the Greatest league nor does it have the best players in the world. No matter what some people might say. It is no different than it was 50 years ago it still relies upon foreign players to make up the squads which are larger than in Scotland which means more competition. Yes it pays better but money is not everything pride happiness and success can be just as important.

I disagree with your ethos. Arsenal have always given their managers a good chance to prove themselves. At least 3 years, However they are now looking at leagues bigger than Scotland That is their mistake BR would be great for them but as all foreign owned PL clubs, they cannot see further than the end of their face.

He is injury prone like Rogic therefor should only get a pay as you play contract.

Will Mcginn accept it.

jonace

{Ed007's Note - I don't see why not if there's no agreement with Hibs. McGinn was never going to leave Hibs in the lurch by signing a pre-contract in January, the deal had to be done this window.}

The main problem seems to be his knees. He could be the best defender in the world but if he does not play he is excess to reqiurements AKA Kompany.
With three teams playing on plastic pitches this year that is six games he will miss already. With cup and others in the CL then there could be more. A settled defence is a must for a trophy winning team. Better to lose him and Commper now if they are not going to be fit. Buy one really good replacement that has a consistant fitness record.

We would have to change the main stand as players coaches have to be under cover when the players disembark.
