Is this David Turnbull any good? Seems to score every time I check your score 

Yeah he's class, could have a big future. His free kick was majestic last night. Him and Soro have been the only bright sparks this season, the rest of the team around them have been garbage. The infuriating thing is Lennon waited until the end of November to play him. He scored 16 goals from midfield in a poor Motherwell side a couple of seasons ago. We had a deal agreed to sign him at the end of that season but he failed a medical and needed a knee operation and missed basically the whole of last season as a result. He started this season on fire for Motherwell again and we went back and signed him.

It's a no for me. Would be on ridiculous wages.

Would he really? Doubt he's on all that much at Marseille, in premier league terms anyway. 80k a week would get him imo and given there would be no fee that's decent business.

Thanks for the info! Atleast there’s some sort of bright light in your season. Hope you can get a few more talents like that seems Scotland is having a bit of a golden patch atm

Tbh despite the financial impact of covid! I think spend £30m Max on Edouard and I wonder if selling choudhary is to fast track Tavares into the first team squad. Then come the summer the squad doesn’t need anything other than free agents and loans in the next two windows at the very least. So many quality footballers out of contract

So you think Cengiz won`t be made permanent? (Why would he presently)

We've literally never taken advantage of 'quality free agents'* I've no idea why, there was tonnes of them last summer. But i'd imagine it's more around us wanting to invest in people who will have a big resale value, rather than players who might end their career here/leave on a free a season or two later.

 

 

*european based ones since our growth in stature... Albrighton obvious exception.

Fuchs was a free agent too, but I get your point if we're looking post-title win.

I've a feeling we have made a move for Edouard.

At the right price i'm very much up for this. Looks like he needs a new challenge and Celtic need to begin a hefty rebuild.

...we are not going to be spending £30m on Edouard!!!

He has been off the pace this season and his contract is running down (Expires 2022), £15m max should do it. Still think he has agreed to go to somewhere next season, it might just be us.

Like I've been saying lately, you'd get Edouard for half of that now.

Eduoard is worth nowhere near £30m.
