    A tad arrogant. And by 'Tad', I mean a lot. The guy is a Norwegian International, plays for the Norwegian Champions and is one round away from playing in the Champions league. This is not 'beneath' us by any stretch of the imagination.

    I like him from wha
    I like Melling from what I saw last season against us I think he would be a very good signing for us at left back. No idea if this is even on the cards but would be happy if we signed Melling this month.

    He would be a darn sight better than anything we have at present that’s for sure! For that reason alone, I’m in

    I think whats putting me off him is that he can displace Lustig in the Sweden squad

    True... it maybe read a "tad" presumptuous.

    But the notion im trying to put across is NOT that this guy isnt worth a punt, but that his signing, if we actually want him, should be a mere formality.

    On the face of it, we're a famous european club with literally 10's of millions available to spend, going after a player who nobody else seems to want and previously flopped in the bottom half on the english championship as a youngster.

    Im saying its indicative of how ridiculous our transfer policy is, and indeed how apathetic our support has become, that we are fretting about whether we can lure a player like this.

    See this it should be a formality * it really * annoys me. People have got to get their heads out their Arsenal here, wake up and realise we are not a club that can get any player we want within our budget.

    Something is going on at Celtic that fans don’t know about, how the whole dembele situation arose, the Rodgers situation, the transfer policy over past few years, TIERNEY a life long Celtic fan leaving before 10, being put out of CL for past two years and a couple of years previously by teams ranked way below us and on a fraction of the wages and cost, us going into the biggest two years in recent memory with a cheap option manager who doesn’t have any confidence in a £10m rated defenders for the most important game this season. Why the * would anyone want to come to that?

    This is coming from people who were talking about Aribo saying if we want him we will get him we have more money we are the beater club blah blah then boom Aribo signs for rangers (because rangers have signed a manager that will attract players) then hit out with he’s * anyway didn’t want him. Wake the * up we are a * shambles just now and the board are at fault at this and seem to get away with it every * year!

    Bringing in Brendan Rodgers was a coup. A massive statement of intent. Was he overly ambitious to the point his intentions would exceed our financial capability (upsetting shareholders, especially DD & PL) which might have led to the breaking down of the relationship between him and the board?

    There's no one I would love more to be our manager that cements the 10 than Neil Lennon, however, I worry he just doesn't have it in him. We now need a real wake-up-call in terms of bringing in fresh faces and letting Neil know just stick to the basics.

    Bring this lad in, get Fraser back, Jordan, O'Donnell and Victor.

    Flex our * muscle for a change.

    Definitely think he's our first choice and that even if we stayed in the CL he'd say the same. If they do qualify i suspect we'll go for Taylor.
