    That's interesting, clearly shows Eddy ahead of MD.
    One thing I notice from liking at highlights from Larsons time, he always had a strike partner, Sutton, Harson.
    Would be great to see us go with Eddy and Griff/Bayo.

    To be fair, Dembele scored and put in good performances against the elite teams. Edouard has maybe not done that yet (through no fault of his own) although I really hope we can see him do that. The CL is so important for us.

    Having said that, I think Edouard is more talented that Dembele. Tricky one but those two are two of the best players we have had this century.

    Honourable mention to JVOH as well. One of my favourite strikers at Celtic and was playing and scoring at the top level in the CL and also in the most competitive SPL out of any of the strikers mentioned in the thread IMO.

    Sacrifice one of the back 4, just go 3 at the back????
    Forrest and Ely as wing backs.

    Edourd with a doubt. The bhoy is really and truly world class already. He was finding his feet last season and had dips in form. He has embraced the responsibility of getting and making goals for the team and his dancing shoes are phenomenal. One of Europe’s top strikers currently and love watching the big man.

    It's too early for eddy to be compared to Larsson but since it has been asked hes on the route to be compared it just depends on his stay if hes here for another 3 year then fair enough best since Larsson imo I feel like robbie Keane deserves a mention he was class in the very * team.we had and Bellamy was also class. For me personally I would say JVOH moussa eddy that's about it the rest have been standard class of Celtic strikers and that is good goal scoring strikers


    Special mention to big sammy for his length of service and goals against the dead club

    I love JVOH but not quite sure it's appropriate to compare him to Moussa and Edouard's level

    The game has changed hardly any teams play with 2 central strikers now, though I would like it tried at home against teams that are just sitting in constantly.

    * Zurawski. His body language at times aaggghh and didn’t look like he enjoyed playing football. Sour faced *. Your top 4 100%. But for me McDonald and JVOH have to be joint 5th.
