We're going back in with an improved offer with add one for doughty.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Sep 2020 14:58:31
We certainly draw these things out; it's like two auld codgers playing penny brag (and I should know) . This position should have been urgently addressed the minute Bolingoli went AWOL and here we are five games later and still fannying about.

15 Sep 2020 15:21:32
I'm a left-footer but don't play with my left foot so why does it matter that we can't have a right-footer who doesn't have to be a left-footer playing on the left? Tom Boyd was a right-footer and played on the left at times and didn't do too badly. I'm sure there are plenty of right-footers who can be played on the left who would do a helluva lot better than many left-footers who ply their trade on the left. Look at KT, he was a left-footer who played with his left-foot on the right at times and did better than some right-footers. I rest my case.

15 Sep 2020 15:30:42
Boyd and players like him are rare to find.

15 Sep 2020 16:15:43
Definitely give more balance.

15 Sep 2020 19:46:51
I don't think being left footed is the determining factor but it's a factor

It means you can deliver width and counter opponents trying to go outside.

Ideally we want someone who is

2 footed
Stronger on left foot
Strong and agile
Good at crossing
Good at tackling
Good at interplay with left midfielders
Can come inside with ease
Can dominate
Preferably tall (ish)
Track record in 20 plus assists a season
Ability to score around 5 to 6 per season ( with both feet and the head)
Good at delivering setpieces in terms of delivery
Got at defending set pieces
Can play LB LM or LWB. ideally also LW
Good international experience
Good under pressure

And not wanting a decent wage

How hard can it be?

Oh, and can illustrate a liking of Celtic or a hatred of sevco.

Get the finger out mr hammond, we are patiently waiting.

14 Sep 2020 14:57:52
Supposed to have had a 650 grand bid for doughty rejected. if we want the boy stop messing about jyst go and get him. he would provide competition for moi.

{Ed007's Note - I think Doughty's being targeted to play at LWB.}

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Sep 2020 15:14:01
Hopefully don't know much about the boy ed but he seems highly rated by bowyer.

{Ed007's Note - Doughty can play anywhere on the left, in CM and he has also played on the RW.}

14 Sep 2020 15:59:11
Will this lad come straight in the team? Seem like a young lad, maybe one of these projects we seem to love buying! Would like to see an experienced left sided player coming in to be honest.

{Ed007's Note - He'd go straight into the first team squad.}

14 Sep 2020 16:27:01
U seen any of him ED? Is he any god? Bit underwhelming for me. would liked a more seasoned player in that position if lennon wants to go ahead with the 352.u think we’ll bid again or pick him up on a pre contract?

{Ed007's Note - I've not seen much of him but Doughty is very highly rated and Fulham have been long term admirers along with West Ham. WBA, Crystal Palace, Brighton and Aston Villa who have all scouted him and there's also a raft of interest from Championship teams since Charlton got relegated.
If Lawwell plans on playing hardball to wait and offer him a precontract then we may lose out - there's no way we are the only Club negotiating with Charlton.}

14 Sep 2020 16:29:47
Why if they really want him go in with the winning bid then if he wants too much wages etc then we know celtic did what they could the player no wanting to come we then live with that and we move on.

14 Sep 2020 17:13:16
So if PL doesn't get his finger out the player going somewhere else would we be better just sticking with the process of a LWB natural or have Forrest or even Frimpong play there?

14 Sep 2020 17:54:53
Why do we have to play these 'Cairo Market place' games with every player we pursue? Look at the bigger picture Celts! If he is as good as you think and he is young enough to actually improve, then pay the money and look at it as an investment. If we were more assertive and proactive from the off, we could actually have a pretty decent team in place before the CL qualifiers.

15 Sep 2020 10:30:44
We need to stop pissing around in the transfer window and get someone in to replace forest he has become complacent, he needs competition.

15 Sep 2020 13:34:56
You have to wonder what the mindset is in our transfer dealings, Alfie Doughty we raise our bids in increments of 100k hoping to get it done. Players like Bayo, Compper, Shved, Morgan, Hendry, Soro etc, its millions out the door and little in return. I know that isn't being fair on Soro just yet but the others we paid good money for and ended up with nothing in return.

The new scouting team seem a bit better than the last, go pay the 1.2m or whatever it will take to get this boy, especially with Bolis wage off the books.

15 Sep 2020 13:47:22
Is he better than young Luca who can play at the back and CM? If he isn't what the F are we playing at? Plus, Lawell trying to save ten bob will probably eff it up anyway. Give Luca a chance.

15 Sep 2020 18:57:51
I'd also like to see Luca given a chance. From the little I've seen of him he's tenacious for his size and has some great technical ability.

If not then would be good to get him out on loan in SPL to get some games under his belt. Same applies for young Oxflex, Henderson and Harper.

13 Sep 2020 19:38:57
Alvaro Gimmines sorry for the spelling is supposed to have joined us? I haven't a clue if it's correct or not according to a commentator on Sly.

Agree1 0Disagree

13 Sep 2020 23:35:06
Did he not sign for Cadiz a few weeks ago.

14 Sep 2020 06:49:04
He signed for cadiz last year and hasn't made an appearance yet.

14 Sep 2020 08:06:33
The article I read was possibly the worst piece of written word I've seen for ages. How anyone concluded anything from that garbled mess is between them and their primary 3 school teacher.

14 Sep 2020 11:12:46
Marco he actually signed for them on loan last year and played 13 times, he just hasn't played since the loan was made permanent.

13 Sep 2020 13:08:44
istanbul basakeshir have announced bolingoli on loan apparently.

Agree2 0Disagree

13 Sep 2020 13:55:09
We urgently need a good left sided defender.

13 Sep 2020 13:55:57
Just heard that Liam. He's unlikely to play for us again and it free's up a space in the squad for a LWB and we need one!

13 Sep 2020 14:16:04
How much was he on a week? Does anybody know.

13 Sep 2020 17:09:27
would have been ideal to get a sale but at least he's out the door for now, i actually think its shocking we haven't got a LB in.

13 Sep 2020 19:16:59
We should bring Gutman back from his loan, I've watched a few of the MLS games and the boy looks good.

13 Sep 2020 20:05:33
He was 9n 8.55k per week. and signed on for 250k . ed can confirm but that was what was alluded to a few weeks after he signed from rapid.

13 Sep 2020 20:14:42
gutman can't get a work permit jonbhoy.

14 Sep 2020 06:50:21
The Turkish team have an option to buy so that's good news I would have sacked him.

I like that team 3 5 2 It looks like.

12 Sep 2020 14:10:12
Good lineup. Very attacking.
And our strongest bench since the Invincible season.

12 Sep 2020 14:17:59
Great squad with plenty of options. Good to see Elyounnoussi on the bench as he has been struggling to fit in lately and resting Christie after two Internationals. Said earlier that Brown will never be left out and I also think Ntcham and Ajer are in the shop window.
So if they really want away, they will have to perform to impress.

12 Sep 2020 14:32:48
Like line up and formation. Really believe 3-5-2 is the best way to outplay teams that flood midfield and park bus against us. Can see a good few goals today.

12 Sep 2020 14:43:41
would like to see soro come on about 60 mins for brown see how he does in that position.

11 Sep 2020 18:48:11
duncan castles has claimed arsenal have bid for edouard.

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Sep 2020 19:17:15
Duncan castles is known liar! Wouldn’t pay any attention to that clown!

11 Sep 2020 20:20:13
22 mill aye right.

11 Sep 2020 20:42:53
He said Arsenal put in a first bid of £15 million. Total nonsense.

11 Sep 2020 21:07:47
Buzz 22 is nonsense as well mate.

11 Sep 2020 23:47:20
Sounds like sheer paper talk, 22m is an insult.

12 Sep 2020 09:57:01
The 22m is right unless eddy signals intent to see out the 10

No new contract or hint of one and Celtic can kiss goodbye to 20m+ by christmas

Cat and mouse stuff.

12 Sep 2020 11:33:46
£22 million is nowhere near right in this transfer window.
Edouard still has 2 years left on his current contract.
I think Celtic could get between £35-£40 million now,
And I still think we could get £25-£30 in January,
But I think if Edouard doesn’t sign an extension and he is allowed to stay for the 10,
His valuation will plummet to about £15 million next summer.

12 Sep 2020 11:53:07
Considering pistol Pete somehow managed to get £7 million for Armstrong who was openly wanting away in the last year of his contract, we can safely say Eddy won't be go for pennies this year or next.

12 Sep 2020 14:37:33
Its all speculation. Edouard has not once stated he wants to leave. Personally I reckon he will sign a new contract.

12 Sep 2020 15:55:47

12 Sep 2020 15:57:32
Ed do you have any idea if this alleged 40% sell on clause with PSG that was reported is accurate?

{Ed007's Note - As far as I know it was 20% and I really can't see Lawwell agreeing to a deal with it so high.}

11 Sep 2020 11:28:45
Another Development Squad player, left back Daniel Church, has now been told he's free to leave the club.

Although still only 20, he's been at the club for 13 years and leaves with a solid football schooling. He had a loan spell at East Fife.

Good luck on your future career.

Agree1 0Disagree

11 Sep 2020 14:37:25
So we are desperate for a new left back but we free our reserve left back without giving him a chance , can’t say much for him then 😉, hope the lad goes and has a good career elsewhere .

11 Sep 2020 20:21:47
You've got to asdume they've watched the kid every day at training and games to come to that decision bit like Miller not good enough.

11 Sep 2020 20:49:55
Celtic have previous for letting
Left backs leave to early. Mulgrew Robertson Hickey
And were very close to letting kt leave.

11 Sep 2020 07:12:04
Reports saying Brighton are baulking at a 40 mill oricectag for eddy would they baulk if he played with Burnley.

Agree4 0Disagree

11 Sep 2020 07:52:10
I work with a West Brit Villa supporter who is a fountain of knowledge. He listens to Talksport so he's an authority on Scottish football!

He tells me that no English club is paying £40m for an 'SPL' player! So looks like we are keeping Eddy because this guy has never been wrong in his life. Couldn't name me 5 players playing in Scotland, but he knows.

You see, if you haven't scored goals in the English top flight, like Ollie Watkins, or had 3 assists in a season like Dominic Solanke, then you are only worth £2m tops.

11 Sep 2020 08:55:14
look at mcginn 3 mill then good season in championship 50 mill haha bout time teams in this country took a stand. in todays market eddy is a 40 million player all day long. if they do not want to pay it then fine let them pay over the odds for players like solanke and Watkins.

11 Sep 2020 10:14:20
Think Eddy’s ambition is slightly higher than Brighton and a relegation scrabble 🙄.

11 Sep 2020 12:01:14
If he is valued at £40m, then some club will pay it sooner or later. The SPL may be scoffed at by the EPl, but there are many big rich clubs that can see talent and a huge potential investment in a young very talented player who will only get better.

11 Sep 2020 18:00:19
United ireland . big pond small pond big sharks goldfish. we will take what we can get . we cannot afford to take a stand.

When epl aides sell to each other it's sort of rigged. poor to average players 10m . decent players 15m and the there's the age and experience aspects. the point is we should ignore the intra league transfers as noone is really spending if they are all ripping each other off . but when they go outside their leagues to weaker leagues ( france Italy and Germany aside ) the teams with money call the market and small fish navigate the waters as best they can and get what they can get

There'll be NO STAND .

11 Sep 2020 18:16:01
Other people are allowed to voice their opinion as well Lubo. This forum isn’t just for your opinions only. Albeit you do your very hardest to voice them as loudly as you can.

11 Sep 2020 20:23:26
U oan the swally lubo.

11 Sep 2020 20:37:24
If it is true Arsenal have come in for eddy he will go there I think especially if they are moving Lacazette on, we probably won't get 40m but I reckon we will get 30m tops. Part of me would love to think he will knock it back but if a guy like KT can't knock it back to stay for the 10 then there is no chance eddy will either, I'm not saying he doesn't love it here of which I'm sure he does. You just don't knock that type of move back do you.

11 Sep 2020 22:00:45
Was it not mentioned that brighton approached eddys agent who didn't even entertain them as it was seen as a step down.

12 Sep 2020 09:05:18
@lubo. It's not only Scotland he has scored though is it. He stepped up and scored goals in Europe, he stepped up and scored goals for fun for Frances u21 side he has the potential to be huge, . So if they want him they WILL PAY WHAT WE ASK, .

12 Sep 2020 14:19:23
Royjac 73 . The very fact that K Tierney was so false and led us into believing he was greatest ever Celtic fan by amongst a host of other things , signing a six year contract, gives me the worries he is acting as some form of a conductor between Arsenal and Celtic to smoothb over any obstacles in Eddies’’ transfer.

13 Sep 2020 01:45:28
Chris wise up. KT loves this club even now but had done all he could here and wanted the test at a higher level which I admire. It's Eddie's decision to make and unless they have the same agent I doubt there will be any smoothing over. If Eddie goes then we move on but I hope he stays as we need him massively this season. KT is Celtic thru and thru and it's people like yourself with only Celtic glasses on that can't see there is a big world out there and the fella can go places and still be a Celtic man.

13 Sep 2020 12:59:25
Well said Carrickbhoy 👍.

14 Sep 2020 17:50:09
So KT’s great love for Celtic since before he made his first Communion, kissing the badge m, leading fans in Celebration, signing 6 yr contract was all a load of bollicks
He didn’t mean any of it, it was K T and only KT that mattered .
I expect many of our better players will want to chase false gold in EPL etc . and I am very happy for them to go with the blessings of club and fans . This will always happen with the super rich clubs in the leagues around us acting like vultures.
Just don’t have players make idiots of us making out that they are special club people when they are not.
