The Celtic 2019/20 thread

Recommended Posts

Folk losing their shit over how much a player is or isn't worth... 
Facts are, whether it be Tierney or McKenna or even M'Bappe, the player is 'worth' what the selling club can get for him and what the interested club are willing to pay.
Selling clubs will demand a relatively unreasonable price and the buying side will initially go in with a low offer, it's how football transfers work and hardly a new phenomenon, state of some of the replies on here....
That is usually how it works & a mutual agreement is usually the outcome, Lawwell is a Poundland Daniel Levy however so anything that restricts his ill gotten bonus is fine by me.

I'm glad we've all finally agreed Aberdeen are using a random number generator and not basing the price they want for McKenna on footballing ability.

Ugh. Celtic in for Lowe if they sell Tierney. That would be a fantastic signing.
Would rather go baws oot for Lowe than McKenna.

I think whoever gets him this season will only have him on loan. Tremendous stop gap though.

Fear not, a few words in his ear from Shay will soon put an end to that little rumour;)

Is that because he is black?*

If Celtic do sell Tierney I would rather see Greg Taylor brought in over Max Lowe.   Celtic will probably go for the cheaper option of Lowe on loan though

Lowe seemed to do better against Forrest last season but both are decent players.

Sadly he's been consistently mentioned.  Celtic should go for Omar Eladbellaoui instead from Olympiacos, better and probably cheaper

Lennon getting savaged by West Brom this morning.

Apparently they sent him up here purely for Rodgers, and then were "hugely disappointed" at how Burke was coached once Lennon arrived.

Feel like you might find this a lot now tbh, the player you could attract under Rodgers wont touch you under Lennon, especially since that's now two players (Weah and Burke) hes been publicly criticised over.

Lennon did sign Van Dyke and Wanyama...didn't do their careers any harm

Not all. The Celtic assistant manager is in the media today calling Turnbull unambitious and claiming hes "all about money" today.

That's classless and undignified from a paid member of staff, and while it keeps fans on side, players will see that's how they act and not want their name dragged through the gutter if they aren't able to find an agreement on wages.

I shall refer you again to to the last time you came up with made up quotes RG.  Whilst there is an article today about his time at Celtic there is no mention at how he was coached. I assume its more over playing time and him leaving out the loan players in general but I'm not going to make up quotes about it.

But yes Lennon is obviously less of a pull than Rodgers. However I can remember one of Lennon's first signings was Ledley, if you listen to him speaking to Si Ferry he managed to convince him to turn down Roma and an EPL team to get him up here. His reputation is nowhere near Rodgers but players say he doesn't make you half feel wanted which is handy as Lawwells wage offers often suggest otherwise.

Given we have one questionable injury prone right back in Ralston I would happily take him right now with the qualifiers coming up.

It's already costing them in the transfer market as well as they made an offer for Aribo but were turned down by the player. It's night and day in terms of how potential players see their development going under Lennon compared to Rodgers.

The only way to counter this is to publicly state Burke is pish. Burke got 90mins at Ibrox and was rotten. Bit unprofessional from West Brom forcing your hand like that. They spent £14m on the haddie and they feel silly about that. He is clearly unimportant to them or they would not have loaned him out during a promotion race they failed to win.

Obvious fake news is obvious.
