Regardless of what was bid the fact that Murty said the clubs valuation had not been met should at least put paid to the Celtic propaganda that we're struggling to keep the lights on!
Lawell has been using the press to his advantage for years. If the newspapers are going to try to sell your players the minute they start playing well then you might as well use them to bump up the price by leaking stories etc. how can we forget the £40m to Chelsea or Real Madrid. Lennon's statement that Griffiths is worth £10m being another example. Perception can become reality, and if you throw enough crap at a wall some of it sticks.
However as fans we shouldn't be so quick to sell players or attach speculative values to them. It is impossible to gushed a players true value these days due to the exorbitant sums thrown around by Chinese and EPL clubs.
Given our excellent business so far this window with only a few hours remaining, I for one trust Murty, Allen, and the board to make the correct decisions for the club. If we receive an offer that they deem to be in our best interests I will support their decision and wish the player well. In the meantime I hope our players do the business for us on the pitch!

Keep Believing!

Think you are right Stuartyb
If Morelos had his shooting boots on we would have been out of sight by half time, l like the fact he hates being subbed, but needs to put a lid on it, it looks petulant at times

Man for man I genuinely see very little difference between the two sides now. Wes has proved this season he is better than Gordon. Tav is miles better than Lustig. Martin slotted in like he'd been there for years and Imo is better than any of their centre halves, reserving judgment on the new German guy who is out for the next month. They have high hopes for Ajer but from what I've seen Bates is a better defender and McCrorie has as much potential. Tierney is a standout for them tbf but Declan John has barely put a foot wrong. I think Murphy will prove to be as good as Sinclair and while Forrest has improved his game I'd still pick Candeias. Up front Cummings is better than Griffiths was at that age and while Dembele may be a better player than Morelos he's been pish this season and el Buffalo will out score him. They might say Rogic is better than Windass but his fitness is no better than Rossiter's. Finally the midfield McGregor and Armstrong are overrated, Broony won't go on forever and Ntcham hasn't done much yet. Are they really better than Dorrans, Jack, Holt, Goss, and Docherty?

Big marv i have to say Tierney would walk into our team so would Griffiths dembelle Sinclair's and sumonovic . But the gap is a lot lot smaller now one more season and we will really challange


2.) 25 Jan 2018 10:31:43
Tierney yes. Griff yes. Dembele yes. Sinclair not so sure but I'd rather have Big Bruno than Sicknoteovic.


3.) 25 Jan 2018 10:42:04
Stirling, i'd agree oon all of those but Sumonvic, I honestly think that guy is a bombscare.

We have the nucleus of a good side, we just need consistency, the defeats against the bottom half teams is what is hurting us, I believe it comes down to a mentality/ attitude issue and Murty is addressing that now with the players he is bringing in and the players he is looking to let go. Siege mentality required.

Lets hope Murty can pull it off and we can push on away from Aberdeen/ Hibs etc.

Great post big Marv. I agree with you, I have said the squad before Pedro left was very decent but with the wrong man in charge. Now we have the right man and some great additions to that squad with the likes of Docherty to come in as well as Jack, Dorrans, Alves, McCrorie and Miller to return from injury.


5.) 25 Jan 2018 12:01:56
We need a midfielder to bully the opposition and dictate the game, once we have that (mcrorie in a couple of seasons) we will be in a better place.


6.) 25 Jan 2018 13:53:49
Cheers Seeker, also in our favour is that all of their fans still think they're miles ahead team wise. Pride cometh before a fall and aw that.

I remember Supercooper (and possibly others) recommending Liam Lindsay when he was at Partick. He's now linked with a £6m move to Brighton. Pedro could have picked him up for a fraction of the Cardoso fee. Frustrating.

Yip Lindsay would have been a cracking signing👍


2.) 24 Jan 2018 14:17:11
We need to stop picking over rated foreigners over young scottish talent. Lindsay would have been great and as you say at a fraction of money that we have wasted.


3.) 24 Jan 2018 15:06:29
Picking up scottish talent seems to be the transfer strategy going forward.

Champions around the corner, you still haven't explained why Ashley would give up making lots of money from Newcastle to making peanuts (by comparison) at Rangers. Celtic have been run prudently for years and have been consistently in the Champions League yet they can't compete financially with English teams far smaller than Newcastle. It just doesn't add up (unless you're a nasty little troll with your fingers crossed)

To Champions around the corner. Why on earth would Ashley take over? Yes there are bigger overheads at Newcastle but the TV money alone means that he is making vast amounts more than he would with Rangers. Even if we were to get into the Champions League (which is getting more difficult each year for Scottish clubs) that is still small fry compared to what he is currently making.

Do you think it's a coincidence that Celtic can't compete financially with English clubs far smaller than Newcastle? People like you still believe a sugar daddy is going to our saviour. What you must realise is that we are a backwater football nation and the best we can hope for is living within our means and becoming a effectively a selling club for lesser EPL teams like Celtic are currently.

Our wage bill has almost certainly increased but given that we knocked back multiple bids regardless of what was offered it means that there is no need to panic. Had we sold Windass and Morelos when the first bids were made there would be more reason to worry. I understand your fears given the current situation and what happened in recent years but look at what's being spent on stadium repairs and expansion at auchenhowie as evidence that the board are planning for the future. Admittedly I support the board more than most and some would say I'm displaying the blind faith that led to our past troubles. Personally despite his obvious faults I admire King for taking the lions share of the flak when others were tasked with the day to day running of the club. IMO he will step aside in due course and someone like A Johnston will take his place at the helm. All business men wriggle their way through loopholes and the men running other clubs are no different.

Keep Believing!

If your judging a 21 yr old Scot from a few games in one of the best leagues in the world then I'll happily take the opinions of EPL managers, Murty and Allen over you caw. No offence.

Jack will likely be out for the season. Dozza is on schedule which I think is about 6 weeks or so. McCrorie will be assessed on Monday, hopefully a few weeks at most till he returns.

He's been given the job till the end of the season. Can we at least wait till then before passing judgement! In the meantime let's get behind him! Windass and Morelos may well be gone in the summer too but at the moment they are two of our best forwards who need our support.

It's almost impossible to guage a players true value these days due to the vast sums squandered by Chinese and EPL clubs. Seemingly a player is worth what someone is willing to pay but given that so many can afford and are willing to pay way over the odds the word value loses all true meaning. So I personally don't see the point in speculating until a bid comes in that the board deem acceptable. The newspapers are clueless and will print anything regardless of where it comes from and clubs PR departments (Traynor, Lawell etc. ) use this to their advantage to try and inflate the price. If and when bids do arrive, then we can argue whether they represent value or not. In the meantime let's hope he does the business on the pitch.

Murphy is our best left winger. Dozza plays no.10. Windass impact sub for me.
