    It’s often standard practice for the buying club, I know that does not fit in to the agenda though so apologies.

    End of the day they have had the chance regardless, no real excuses. If they really wanted him they would have come in by now. Celtic’s gain is their loss in my view. Anyway, best of luck to him regardless, he did the right thing by the club.

    Queens fans must be getting excited.

    I don’t see this going on for weeks, deal sorted with the next few days in my view.

    I think way too much is been made of something that’s pretty simple. Motherwell had a figure in mind that a club had to match and only Celtic did, the other published bids fell short. There never was a bidding war and the last few days have shown there was never going to be one. There has been nothing to stop any other club matching the Celtic offer and not one has come forward. Turnbull has as good as said to other clubs down south “come and get me”, so where are they ? So he either joins Celtic at a figure we are happy with, or we get a lower offer from down south big a big sell on clause which is beginning to look doubtful. With every passing day it’s looking more like Celtic are nailed on.

    The longer it goes on without a bid from down south the longer it looks like Burrows had it spot on. People can talk of a bidding war all they like but other clubs should have come in by now if genuinely interested at the price and as others have said he is only worth what clubs are willing to pay.

    I’m still not 100% convinced of that.

    Thing is there won’t be much point in us keeping them in the loop in 3/4 years time.

    Yep, either they want him or they don’t.

    I would not rule out him still joining Celtic. He’s looking at his options and i’d be very surprised if he’s said i’m definitely not joining Celtic, I think they are still probably favourites if nothing concrete down south.

    Very much a tale of two players and two different personalities at this point. Hastie who had a bit of history of not putting in the work, overweight, less than wise tweets while on a lads holiday, and already looking like he will be loaned out with question marks already raised at this point, Rangers trying to hoover up Scottish talent to avoid him going to a competitor with no real plan for his development. Celtic trying to do the same with what looks like a far wiser individual in Turnbull who has noted what’s already happening with Hastie and is looking at the bigger picture and how he would like his career to develop. The next move for Turnbull is huge, the same way it was for Hastie who I feel made the wrong decision, big money yes but I think he’s also put his whole football career at risk. I just don’t think Turnbull is going to make that mistake and if he does join Celtic it will only be when he’s happy that the plans they have for him are to his benefit. I would love him to stay for another season with us but that’s for purely selfish reasons. He’s playing with others that are not at his technical level and never will be, that goes for the league as a whole, so how does he develop further ? He needs to be playing with players that are better than him, that will improve his game, coaches that are used to working with the best players in the world. He’s definitely looking for a move down south now which with the right club and everything they can offer development wise makes sense. He’s probably gone as far as he can in the Scottish game which is a level below his ability.

    Never going to happen. He will never put on another Motherwell shirt, too far down the line now.

    Surely it’s agree a fee that’s acceptable to the club first, then it’s up to the players agent to do his work. No player has to accept anything but there is no point doing it the other way round. This does not mean he won’t join Celtic, more he’s probably looking to maximise his options, he could still sign for them anyway.

    Turnbull

    And that’s the risk, people talk of holding on for a bidding war, let’s see if it happens.

    Is he officially away ?
  17. Yorkyred

    Turnbull

    If there are clubs willing to put in better offers where are they, two days and no further news on any other concrete offers. That suggests no one else is interested in raising the bar.

    If any player, from any club benefits Motherwell it’s all good. Could not care less if it benefits Celtic down the line, that’s going to happen regardless of who the player joins and Celtic will always be miles ahead of us anyway, different level of club. You don’t see premiership clubs down south saying we won’t take that Man Utd player because it might benefit them in two years time. We should be thinking about what’s best for Motherwell not Celtic. If we go down the line of blooding our own youngsters instead no problem, (if they are ready) but let’s not just cut off our nose to spite our face because it’s a certain club. If a player from any club makes us stronger, provides better entertainment, and we gain financially by finishing higher we win. We refuse on principle and the player joins St Johnstone or Killy instead, we lose out to a genuine rival. Or maybe we only except loan players from Accies, they won’t be as good but we’ve done the right thing on principle.

    Let’s wait and see what squad we end up with. It’s pointless predicting relegation or reduced crowds at this point. Season ticket sales are up under Robinson.

    If Turnbull goes i’ve no doubt at least some of the money is going to go to a couple of players we would not have been able to afford otherwise. Again i’m seeing one or two posters who seem to feel the sale of Turnbull means we will automatically struggle, I have a feeling we may also lose Cadden so another player to replace but I would assume also further funds to replace him with.Yes the squad is light but when we say “why sell Turnbull so early in the window “it also means it’s still early to find replacements, the time to judge is when the squad is complete.

    Honestly I think he will shine at any club, he’s got real quality regardless of where he plays. Celtic will sell him to a club down south for 10 million plus within two years in my view.

    Ok, it’s the usual conspiracy.
