Ed keep seeing that Man U have held talks with Dembele is this true or just the usual papers trying to sell our players.

Stephenm2

{Ed007's Note - I've not heard of any talks but Utd are watching him along with half of Europe. How much game time would he get with Lukaku, Zlatan and the likes of Rashford there?}


1.) 24 Nov 2017 08:09:05
Not so worried about MD moving on I think he will go in the summer it's everybody watch Young Tierney cause there is no cover there at all.


2.) 24 Nov 2017 11:35:41
Ed, have you heard whether we'll be going in for any defenders in January? If so, any names?

{Ed007's Note - I've not heard anything, Kev.}


3.) 25 Nov 2017 08:08:29
they were meant to have spoke to two centre halfs agents the other week. one player was english and the other croatian i heard.


4.) 25 Nov 2017 12:48:07
Rich, I don't think we need to worry aboit Tierney. The boy loves the club and the club and everyone associated with the club love him. Our future captain with many years in green in white I'm sure we all hope.

Are we still looking at duverne, or has that ship sailed?

Seems to be a lot of people on dembelles back this year and I’ve no clue why I don’t know what the guys to do with no service and the injuries he’s had this year it seems everybody’s mind was made up on who our best striker was when Griffiths ties a scarf to a post.

Stephenm2

{Ed007's Note - Dembele is a better all round player than Griffiths who is a better finisher but is starting to remind me of Kris Commons with just shooting any time he gets the ball regardless of where he is on the park. They're totally different types of player but for I'd say LG needs to start using the ball more more intelligently when he's not in the box.}


1.) 09 Apr 2018 01:18:08
I agree ed he is becoming a lot like commons I like Griffiths but Dembelle is a far better player who i would start over Griffiths if both were fit but I do feel a lot of fans are getting on dembelles back for no reason guys scored 5 goals in his last 7 games no a lot more you can ask for.

{Ed007's Note - After his injury that's a good return and don't forget his identical assists for KT up at Pittodrie and Edouard's clincher at The Pit. It's rarely going to happen but I think regularly playing both Dembele and Griffits like an old fashioned front 2 partnership would devastate Scottish football in the Larsson & Sutton/Hartson and even Hateley and McCoist days of yore.}


2.) 09 Apr 2018 01:31:17
I don't think he has been as bad for it under br. The seaon under rd when he was going for 40 he would of tried a lob from a goal kick if he was allowed. I agree though he has more assist in him. The rest of his game has came on. Its the ballance of greed.

{Ed007's Note - I'm not dissing LG, I done enough of that when he signed and I'm delighted to admit he's proven (proved?) me wrong. Maybe it's the chasing his hundreth goal in a slow canter to the league is making him greedy. Hopefully once he gets the monkey off his back next week with 99 and 100 he'll go back to his usual ways and bringing team mates into play if that's the best option.
To be fair though he's not the only player that needs to sharpen up their decision making during games.}

Really don't understand in what area Dembele is better than Griffiths.

Griffiths has better movement, quicker, better in the air, better finisher, better first touch.

Dembele this season is so static and hardly moves. Most of his goals have been penalties this year.


4.) 09 Apr 2018 07:09:52
Stephen he's not been as prolific this year, there's no doubt he's had injuries, and I live him as a player and he always does a bit of hunskelpin but people are just being honest this year he's tailed off a bit.


5.) 09 Apr 2018 09:27:33
Dembele takes a while getting back to full fitness after injuries, in my opinion that is why he has looked off the pace a lot of the time.
I think that Dembele is the better all round player as he has caused problems for teams in Europe more than Griffiths has. Griffiths is good enough in the Scottish league but I feel he struggles to make an impact at a higher level
I think we are fortunate to have them both at the club at the same time though.


6.) 09 Apr 2018 09:49:31
I would go with Griff on Sunday personally. Think he would cause Alves all kinds of problems with his movement. The thing with the Moose is when he’s off he’s game he has very little impact whereas when Griff is having a poor game you still fancy him to score.


7.) 09 Apr 2018 12:50:59
To get the best out of Dembele (and Griffiths) we have to play to their strengths and that is not happening enough.
However Moussa's goal at Ibrox and LG's goal yesterday are recent reminders of what the right service can produce and it doesn't always have to be umpteen passes from side to side, tiring out strikers, making empty runs, trying to score the perfect goal.


8.) 09 Apr 2018 23:44:34
I don't think it's fair to judge Dembele or any player playing on that damn surface that like Kilmarnock, is specially prepared to prevent good football and hinder good footballers .
Before the match most sensible pundits just wanted Celtic to win the game and not have injuries, we achieved that and then some try to take apart performance of team and individual players.

I'm sorry if I'm in the minority but with Armstrong signing I think the boy could still push on and sign a longer contract but the way some of our fans are going he'll be out the door Tommorow when did wee become so fickle and arrogant as fans fans like the ones who are going overboard with this stuff are the reason I leg my ticket go 3 years ago.

I wouldn't rule it out stephen, but I really can't see it myself. You've got to question why he wanted a shorter deal than the club did in the first place, surely? He's said in the past he wants to play in Germany or England (I think) . He'll be 27 when this deal runs out and will probably want to spend his best days there. Not everybody is a Celtic fan and I can live with people having ambitions elsewhere. As long as he gives his all in a Celtic shirt I'll cheer him on, and as long as Celtic end up getting a good deal when he leaves I'll be happy.

Younger generation steph mate.


3.) 20 Aug 2017 21:41:25
I was one of the people saying it was a strange deal, which it is.

Ultimately though, with the Roberts deal seemingly imminent, we are going into the new season with our first choice squad of 'infrangibiles' intact.

Squad continuity is what we have all been crying out for season after season. Now we have it, and a few quality reinforcements besides. Champions League football also secured bar 11 red cards. We are really are in an enviable position.

Never knew a number 10 was known for their defending.

So basically it's the same as every year we won't sign anyone until champions league is secured and still won't once it is secured.

The Dembelle situation feels the same as the johanson one last year to me.
