Discussion in 'Ex Players' started by AJ Styles, Jan 24, 2016.
Discuss Patrick Roberts! in the Ex Players area at TalkCeltic.net.
Jim White saying were in talks to sign him on loan tonight
Once again the board * us over, hopefully this not instead of Elyounessi
Don't give a *, would be delighted to see him with us even if it is only for 6 months - this guy will be one of the best players in the world.
If this is instead of Elyounoussi I'll be * raging.
What's the point of a six month loan?
We need players for the CL, not short term
Hmm, not sure about this.
Hoopsmanbrian saying this is instead of Elyounessi
Balls to loans develop our own talent not Citys
If he signs we'll be delighted we got the chance to see him play for us when we're looking back at this deal, He's one of the best players in the world for his age - it's not as if this is going to scupper or chances of the CL, if we're signing him its because we've missed out on our targets. Its been said Molde dont want to sell so we might just have to wait till the summer for Moi.
Hate loan deals...
I don't like loan players, especially if they're not going to be here for the CL qualifiers. I have never seen this guy playing so I don't know how good he is.
Not really promoting stability in midfield either.
If that's true Celtic can actually get to *. Surely they can't be stupid enough to bring in a winger on a six month loan when we need proper signings for next season. Would sum them up.
He'd be a good addition to the squad but only if we bring him in on top of a proper signing.
Wouldn't want him played before Christie, Forrest, GMS, Armstrong, Commons or even an out of position McGregor.
That's what he thinks, not from his sources. In my opinion, Roberts will be brought in as cover. Sign we're shipping players
One Shot Paddy is his name and scoring is his game
He's known across the land, both near and far
With the ball at his feet, he'll get you off your seat
And play for the lovely people at Celtic Park
And when the war is over and the huns have all gone home
Paddy'll put away his boots and never more will roam
Our message to Aiden Nesbitt "look we know you are ripping it up in the development league but we have a chance to sign a young winger from Man City for 6 months and he may help us win a league which is already in the bag so sorry no chance you are getting game time this season son"
Nesbitt will be going out on loan I reckon.
I'd rather the board went all out for Elyonoussi, like really. We know we've got loaded board members who could top off a deal with a bit of extra cash for the player or his current team. They don't do that too much and I understand why but every now and then a player comes along who is completely within our means to get and who would be a dead cert success here but maybe a deal for that player doesn't go the way the board would like. They have to see when a bit of extra cash to get a deal done is a good move or not.
Just conjecture on my part but I would imagine this deal for Elyonoussi could get over the line with an extra wee shove if it hasn't went smoothly.
Saying that maybe it's all good and were bringing this lad in as a bonus. Which would be great for everyone concerned!
Mark and Peter Lawwell strike again!
