    Not the best of stands for well documented reasons but it was certainly an improvement on the corrugated iron structure that it replaced.

    Does anyone know when the Hastie compensation issue will be resolved? Its all gone very quiet.

    The view is excellent, in the main, but facilities are poor. Toilets and food kiosks are cramped and access during matches is difficult when queues build up and punters are going past for hospitality downstairs. PA system is poor but thats not confined to the POD Stand of course.

    Ah, so the media is now having a pop at young David for having the temerity to stall on signing for Celtic.....what a surprise! Its been a difficult and finely balanced decison for our club, but on the whole they've handled it well. Things should be clearer this week.

    All a bit unclear at the moment. Does anyone know what theCeltic up front fee actually is? I've seen conflicting media reports of between £2.75m to £3.25m. Also, is there a sell on clause?

    A small point perhaps but did Van Dijk not leave Celtic 4 years ago? Wages have moved on since then.

    I wonder if the seething redtops will publicly divulge the name of David Turnbull's agent or the firm which employs him? Maybe they know which side their bread is buttered on.

    Well yes. I would like to think that in touting the lad around down south, his agent will be taking into account the minimum fee thats acceptable to our club. Presumably the minimum fee, commonly understood to be £3m, was also agreed with the lad himself and his agent, who once again is playing hardball. Of course we don't know that the Celtic deal is stone dead yet - this could just be a negotiating ploy to jemmy a few more pounds from the biscuit tin.

    Not necessarily as it will depend whats in his contract. We've agreed a £3m + fee with Celtic but we may have some say if the likes of Bournemouth were suddenly to put in a £3.2m offer with add ons.

    My view too Yorky. A lot of OTT reaction on here so far. For me, the critical question is "Is there a sell on clause?" We don't know as the press articles are all vague and not entirely consistent. I also get the impression, maybe wrongly, that there is a clause in his contract covering being allowed to talk to clubs if bids of a certain value are received. Its now been a day or two since the news about us agreeing Celtic's bid being accepted was made public. Interested parties from down south have now had the time, the means and the financial clout to submit better bids, and as far we know have not done so. Time will tell if they do so. The lad himself has done well by us by signing a new deal so good on him. I never expected him to stay until next season.

    A bit pessimistic depending on how we interpret your post. If you mean bringing in experienced pros then you might be right although the likes of Louis Moult and Marvin Johnson might go some way to dispel that. If you mean that future generations of Academy graduates I don't agree at all. The real quality players like your David Turnbulls, James McFaddens and Phil O'Donnells will always be home grown and I look forward to see more coming through the ranks in the years to come. No reason why they shouldn't be as good.
  12. Kmcalpin


    Maybe. If teams from down south are genuinely interested and are prepared to top Celtic's offer then they will now have contacted the club. If they haven't then that tells us a lot.

    Just a hunch but I suspect we'll bring in another striker. If James Scott goes out on loan we'd be back to 2 strikers and thats if Johnson stays.
