    Despite the fact he was going to join Celtic I am genuinely sorry that this has happened to young David Turnbull. It must have been hell for him and his family to suffer such a disappointment and to have it reported and dragged in the media the way it was. I hope the operation is successful and that he makes a full recovery even though we will eventually have to lose him. He's only 19 so will recover quickly and with time on his side he will get his big move. I'm also glad that Motherwell stood up to Celtic in this case and let them see they were not going to be bullied or coerced by them or their sycophantic media. I'm certain David Turnbull will have the full unequivocal support of the club and us the fans and I for one wish him the speediest recovery even though as I say, we will eventually have to lose him.

    Is this embarrasing or well thought out . I ll let u decide. Personally i think Burrows is doing a great job.

    He’s our player. Bring him back so we can assess this “out of the blue” knee injury. I’m guessing our medical team are as surprised as we are. If he needs treatment, so be it. We can attend to that. If he is ok, then he is missing valuable pre season training and getting to know our new players. Or Celtic can stump up what was agreed. What’s the alternative? Agree some half arsed reduced terms deal with additional to be paid when he has played 50 and then 100 games? Cue sell on at 49 or 99 games with or possibly without a sell on fee. No thanks. Plenty of time left in this window. If Celtic really want him they will come back, now or when he proves his fitness. He is a commodity they want for future gain. And another good season for him and others will be interested. We are in the position of strength here. We should not roll over and give away our best asset in a rush of panic. Or are we that desperate for the cash? We have done our best for Turnbull in this window but maybe it’s not to be for him.... this time. We have clearly demonstrated we will let him go to advance his career, but it must be on our terms.

    Sources close to ground crew say he made the flight.

    Sounds like "the amateurs" running our club refused to be steamrollered by Celtic after all. (If you hear a chewing sound in the distance, it's the sound of 100 humble pies being devoured).

    If he’s as good as he is carrying an “ injury “ how fucking good will he be when fully fit. GET THE PRICE UP!!!!!

    Offence is often taken and rarely given. It doesn't mean you are either correct or have access to certain rights, it's just a whine. It has no meaning, it has no purpose, it has no reason to be respected. "oh I'm offended by that" ...... So fucking what! Stephen Fry

    Not sure why anything that was said means he’s finished. He seems to be making progress, and the club says he’s close to full training, which only puts him a couple of weeks behind the rest fitness wise. Whether he gets his form and confidence back, and whether it affects his ability to play at the top level once fully fit, no one on here can possibly know at this point. So to say he’s done strikes me as being negative for no reason. Im proud to support a club that takes this kind of approach, taking care of a player who was injured on our watch. It is the right thing to do.

    Heard he's been spotted lifting the European cup in 1967. Edit, found the pic in question

    I see Turnbull isn't in the squad, injury?

    We are not actually offering to pay him. Just loan him the money to see if he’s still any good.

    If you take your C&A tinted specs off for a second you'll see that they're well within their rights to try and take the price down a bit. He's out for six months potentially, no way would/should they pay full price after that. I would expect Motherwell to do the exact same thing in their shoes. There's been a lot of rage at Celtic from our fans over the past couple of weeks, the 'magnificent offer' and John Kennedy pish completely justified. Trying to reduce the price a bit isn't.

    And if we had all found out about the accepted bid from the papers first, and not the club, everybody would have been pissing their pants about lack of communication.

    I love this 'usual suspects' chat. It always makes me think of the ant hill mob lurking away is some dark corner of the steelmen online site waiting to attack us with negative vibes. Last night they were being blamed for a negative reaction to the Crusaders friendly (when actually nobody was saying very much) and today for not giving the club due credit (when actually the comments have been very positive). I bet they will be along in a minute though to spread their vile. Darn those usual suspects!!!

    I think this may be one time when everyone on here is in agreement and I hope the board realize the position of the fans. We cannot and should not even entertain any reduced price or change in terms. We need to step up and tell them to complete this deal now or else there is no deal. Not now and not any time in the future.

    Starts off with DT sitting in his living room. I was hoping for a scoop...... no quotes no facts, just the journo's views. Boring to be honest

    I don't give a flying fuck about the money anyway I just want to boy to get fit again and see him in a Motherwell shirt once more. So nothing to see here it's over with we move on and get the Magnificent David Turnbull back fit and well soon hopefully.

    Not a problem for me, I would be more than happy if he stayed. We should not be getting involved in any negotiations, they either pay the fee agreed or he stays.

    There should be no renegotiation with Celtic. They are still getting a bargain. If they won't pay the price they don't get Turnbull.

    Rangers managed to swoop with a magnificent offer in the last minute. Explains the lack of conformation by the club.
