  1. Celtic were low balling Hibs at the time for mcginn when we made our bid
  2. Watched a bit of Celtic ( not a load ,so won't claim to have watched them week in week out) He looks like a real talent , probably an upgrade on Watkins Moussa Dembele left Celtic in 2018 for less than 20 million and for me was a far better player So with the prices being inflated in the 2 years , even so , I don't see where they can quote 40million, Celtic are heavily reliant on gate receipts and will probably have to sell My fear is that with us jumping in and taking mcginn while they were playing hard ball , there might be still some I'll feelings towards us
  3. It's fairly self explanatory with example I gave , it shows how bidding above the release clause is of no benefit
  4. Exactly , it becomes players decision at that point, so let's say we bid 18 and Leeds bid 19 , all Watkins would need do is reject terms with Leeds and our bid is still there
  5. Dean said on TV last night that the plan was always to eventually play him down the centre
  6. My understanding from what I've read is that the clause only activated once they failed to be promoted
  7. Offload samatta and bring in Watkins plus one more center forward
  8. Last night I can say honestly is first time I've watched him play, he was very in and out of game due to how well Fulham had set up but late in game there was a point where a ball was played up and he was on his own surrounded by 4 Fulham players and held the ball up and won a free in a dangerous area. At that point I thought sign him up
  9. Dean is in perfect place if Brentford lose
  10. It would be like a palace fan saying let's go get grealish No1: he wants to be at a club playing European football No2: his wages will be way out of our budget
  11. Adam idah at Norwich , throw them Hogan???
  12. Totally agree , at times we were so bad at back this year it was hard to watch . Past few games with Konsa we have looked much better , add stones to the mix and think i couldn't watch at all , not to mention the bad habits that may rub off onto our younger players
  13. Looking at the Copenhagen squad , it seem to have 3 Uruguayan players in it , not sure if this is lange's work or not but interesting
  14. Can not see us getting any players from premier League teams that get regular game time , we need to be realistic , our heads barely stayed above water this season and anyone in already playing premier League football is not gonna find us any bit attractive. Think I'd argue we were a much more attractive option to join last summer than we are now , hope we can get players in but think will be tough

    Paul McGrath

    As an Irish man I'm still tore between McGrath and Keane , really find it hard to separate them, but being a kid from an Irish family growing up in Birmingham in early 90s , he pretty much gave me a place to belong, he is more than god to me
  16. Devastating news, only seems like yesterday that I was watching him play in youth cup final
  17. The state of that ,5:0 to us all day long
  18. Thought he was terrible today, beginning of season I thought he was gonna be a top player but seems to be going backwards
  19. We are at the 2am point of the nightclub right now, we started the night with great ambitious but now we will take home just about anything at this point
  20. Gutted I couldn't be there for this , the whole night looked amazing. Would love have asked any of our players coming off the field would you prefer play in a cup tie or have a night off (this is what football is about klopp) On side note the whole pitch invasion looked good natured only for one or two , if the tit that put up the video on YouTube of him running towards Leicester player swearing at them is reading this , take your stupid video down
  21. If you're in negotiations for a player it is probably the smartest thing to say , be pretty stupid to say , " ya we got this one guy that we really want and no one else "

    Louie Barry

    Hopefully this is our biggest signing of the window when we look back in few years
  23. With Sammata in and set to start for Bournemouth game , I can't see us doing anymore business until deadline day , probably the best day for getting in players of a higher quality who are more inclined to us when time is running out
