  1. Fernando Torres (Atl Madrid)

    He's going to Newcastle in all likelyhood. Will still command at least £60k p/w in wages. File under complete non-starter
  2. Martin Skrtel (Fenerbahçe)

    It's a crazy fee for someone who isn't that good a defender. I hope Gerrard isn't underestimating the league like Pedro, Warburton etc. did. If he was a free transfer I'd still have reservations due to the wages involved. Christ even Championship clubs wouldn't spend that fee on a 33 year old, and we've got a far smaller budget and seem to be happy doing so!
  3. MOH in with the beggars yesterday

    McClean hates us and yes he plays his trade in the UK, but MOH actually gets his wages paid by us...
  4. MOH in with the beggars yesterday

    Fucking disgraceful. He's worse than the likes of McClean etc. in terms of timmery
  5. Alves at the World Cup

    Depends how we play. He's made to look crap when he's in a back 2 with the full-backs up high. In a back 3 as the guy who sits back behind the two CBS, he's actually really useful because he's so good in the air. I admit I thought he would've been a far better player for us than he's turned out, but he's been used in a role which requires pace and he no longer has that! A lot of his poor performances have been self-inflicted due to poor managerial tactics
  6. Francis Jeffers was really really pish
  7. Welcome Back Allan Mcgregor

    Fuck it, he's a miles better keeper than anything we have. If he comes in and has a blinder against the taigs all will be forgotten. He's probably the easiest players out of the rats to welcome back, I certainly would rather he was here than Paysmith etc.
  8. BBC Article

    I'm sorry, but how the fuck are we getting our name dragged through the mud? Is everyone just THAT scared of celtic and the RC Church, that they're not even going to mention that the taigs abused children for years? We shouldn't be paying compensation to someone who was allgedly abused 30 years ago, we shouldn't be paying compensation to someone who was abused nowadays. It's a criminal matter, providing we did our due diligence at the time to the standards expected of the day, it's certainly not the fault of the club. Firing and then re-hiring the persons involved and then ultimately covering up child abuse should be grounds for compensation, this is not
  9. Oli McBurnie (Swansea)

    I think the players and transfer fees we've been linked to, show that Morelos is off. We've probably already agreed something in principle with a club and it's being kept hush hush.

    Couldn’t get a game for Wimbledon...

  13. Who will Gerrard keep?

    Liverpool turned down £12million for Moreno in January! And he's pish!
  14. Who will Gerrard keep?

    King even stated that Murty turned it down because he couldn't bring anyone in in the timeframe who he felt would improve us. We actually had a half-chance of winning the league in Jan, can you imagine the scenes if the board sold our top scorer and banked the money? They'd be getting fuck all renewals... In the end Murty fucked it in the 3-2 game against the taigs, win that and we'd have been 3 points behind them and really in contention. You can argue the board fucked it appointing Pedro (and they did), but you can't blame them for not cashing in on a player who looked like he could fire us towards the league
  15. Who will Gerrard keep?

    I don't see why as a club we'd lie about Morelos. Our chairman, manager, and various media sources have had the bid confirmed (the BBC even tried to disprove it but were shot down). Why wouldn't he be worth that? He's been top scorer (or thereabouts) in 2 different European leagues before his 22nd birthday. He's ahead of Dembele, Edouard, Sinclair, Griffiths on goals who have all been touted for similar or more money by the taigs. I accept he has a head like a 50p piece and is on horrendous form at present, but he's clearly a player short on confidence. The lad's 21 ffs, he'll be a great striker in a few years. I wouldn't, but we as a club don't have a tenth of the budget that some championship sides will have - we need to spend the money more wisely. But he's well suited to modern football in a less physical league, and whilst he's not what I look for in a full-back, he's exactly the kind of player that clubs will look at. I'm glad you're not our DOF if you honestly value him at south of £2million.
