    The 'Magnificent' David Turnbull Discussion Thread

    Aye, but we can stipulate as a fan owned club, everything is out in the open. Just always been a bug bear of mine, although insignificant in the scheme of things.

    I'm one of those fans who is fed up with Undesclosed fees. I want more trancparency for our fan owned club.

    The 'Magnificent' David Turnbull Discussion Thread

    Celtic's attitude during the saga has been very direspectful at best. Magnificent Offer We move on Kennedy - We never sign players who are just after the money - More or less callung Turnbull a greedy bastid. AND Turnbull still apparently going to sign with them. The footballing world isn't half bizarre.

    The 'Magnificent' David Turnbull Discussion Thread

    I would like to assume that we have a sell on clause. It appears to have been our policy in recent years when it comes to selling our better players. If there is not a sell on clause, that would be a deviation from standard policy. I would like to think that appart from the upfront fee, we would make it a stipulation of any deal that we would insist on a sell on clause. Any other add ons is just gravy.

    The 'Magnificent' David Turnbull Discussion Thread

    Have read the thread form the moment the news broke. Have a few thoughts. My opinion is that we should keep him for at least another year. Yes, I know the talk of gentlemens agreement etc. Turnbull said himself when he signed a new contract that he had other offers. He wanted to play for Motherwell. Then there's talk of a gamble in not accepting Celtic's bid. Yes, he could get injures or have a loss of form. However, chances are he will be a better player next season, having had most of a season under his belt this year. The way we played since January has convinced me we could push for the top 6. if we keep our best players. Another argument is that we need the cash. We always need cash. That doesn't change. I know we have debts, but lets be honest, they are interest free and neither Boyle or Les are beating down the doors to get their cash back. I want to go to Fir Park and watch good football, especially if the talented players are homegrown. If we don't get a chance to watch then, what is the point? It's just subsisting at the most basic level. I know he's not away yet. I think he is too good for the SPFL. He should go abroad to a more technical league. He IS THAT good. The club always talk about being fan owned. If that is the case we deserve to know the full facts of the deal. For me, Undesclosed feels like a slap in the face. (Just my opinion). I agree that we would not be having this debate if the bid had come from anyone other than the old firm. However, If the club agreed to sell DT for a set fee and we have viable plans for the club, let's here them so that we can have a balanced view. I'm going for a lie down now.

    100% agree. Don't sell him unless there is a loan back clause.

    2019-20 Rebuild

    No science to this what's so ever. Just looked at out of contract players and knocked this up. A lot of theses are almost certainly out of our price range, but may have a desire to return to Scotland or whatever. Just my thoughts. Thought it might encourage some debate...

    Maurice Ross

    He seems to care. I tweeted one time about a reserve game. Nothing important. However, Maurice responded and gave me the facts. I was impressed anyway.

    2019-20 Rebuild

    As it stands, I'd say our team for next year is currently (based on signed players and everyone fit): Gillespie; Tait, Gallagher, Dunne, Carroll; Tanner, Grimshaw, Campbell, Turnbull, Polworth; Scott Subs: Carson, Maguire, Hartley, Livingstone, Fane, Semple, Johnson As for out of contract players, these are my thoughts on who will sign on again / be freed: Peter Morrison - Freed Tom Aldred - Away Christian Mbulu - 1 year deal Shaun Bowers - Freed Carl McHugh - Away Chris Cadden - 2 year deal Elliott Frear - Away Gboly Ariyibi - Back on Loan? Alejandro Rodriguez Gorrin - Away Shea Gordon - Freed Craig Tanner - 1 year deal Liam Brown - Freed Kyle McDonald - 1 year deal Broque Watson - Freed Curtis Main - Away George Newell - Freed Conor Sammon - Away Neil McLaughlin - Freed Thoughts?
  12. Just voted today. Went For Gillespie (Player) & Turnbull (Young Player).
