    He will end up going somewhere for an "undisclosed fee". This to protect the fact that the player is an injury liability and also to protect Shellick and their media lackies face.

    I doubt Griffiths was a better player at Dembele's age. However, I agree that in the here and now Griffiths is their better option.

    Conundrum for the dhims is their one up top system - chosing to play Griffiths diminishes Dembele's value further but realistically they'll still get a bigger transfer fee for him than Griffiths when they move on. I suspect Thumb cannot be too happy at the moment.

    He wont get 20 goals in the Premier League

    He is worth between £7m-£10m tops

    Celtic need to reach at least the semis of the europa to punt any of their players for big money

    Was there not a rumour that when he signed his contract contained a clause that he gets a percentage of any future transfer fee ?

    Because Fat Peter knows the mongtards in their support lap it up hence why he pushes it with his chosen journalists.

    Its been happening for decades, Stevie Fulton was the new Roberto Baggio at one point in the early 90s........

    Celtc and Sinclair in particular were being slaughtered by a pundit on talkradio, basically the guy said the only reason he is at the scumhut is that he is not very good, certainly not good enough for the premiership.

    Sinclair & Dembele had good 1st seasons at C*ltic but this season havent been great because players get used to the way they play.

    Sinclair will not leave Celtic for big bucks because he has already played in the Premier League and failed so they wont make alot of money from him. Dembele on the other hand is a bit different he is younger and untested at that leval. The issue they have is that they have been horrendous this season in the Champions League and thats what will give their players the value. I can see Dembele leaving Celtic in the summer for about £10 million tops.

    No one is interested as they all know his knees are shafted. They tried their best to bluff everyone in deadline day last year with the "doctors appointment" he had in London. To give the appearance he was actually in talks with a london club and try to force someone into making an offer.

    He would be bang average in the Premier league. he will join an also ran club, spend 70% of his time on the physio table and be forgotten in 5 years.

    Wasn’t going to cost an English team “peanuts” though.
    Septic only got him on the cheap because Dembele left English football.

    Yes and the big fella plays in a more challenging position. Will he get the media circle-jerk like Tierney does, of course he won't. Tierney is a decent young player, but correct me if I'm wrong, didn't big DJ say he was the best left back in Britain or some such pish???

    Sinclair and his bird will want back to England soon to settle their wean in an English school, so at 29 in March, his next move will need to be soon to ensure a decent length of contract and wage.
    Everyone down south knows he is a 1 season wonder, therefore any premier league team having a look at him in the next 6 months, he will bite their hand off.

    I think his next move could be a promoted team from the championship to PL or a West Brom , Brighton , Huddersfield. 2 or 3 million at most.

    I always feel they look more dangerous against us when this ugly wanker is playing. He seems to be shunted out when Dembele is fit - with any luck this will piss him off and he f\/cks off.

    I don't agree he's not better than Griffiths but his injury issues are really causing problems for their inflated valuation of him.

    I take great joy reading posts on Facebook from my bother in laws business partner who follows the scum everywhere and he's been slating Roberts, Sinclair and especially Armstrong for weeks. Wants them punted in January, says there a shambles at the moment :) Must also say that when they signed Dembele after a few weeks he compared him to Carlton Cole before he hit his purple patch.

    I've read all this on here before when it comes to mhanks and their valuations, Wanyama was over rated and would go for 3 or 4 million, Forster hadn't been tested, no club is going to pay big money for him, exact same story with Van Dijk, they all went for millions, double figure millions in the process.

    Dembele scoring in the Champions League and scoring a hat trick for France U21s gets him noticed much more than goals in our league.

    He will be transferred and as I mentioned earlier, it will be for a record fee, i would hazard a guess at somewhere between 16-20 million.

    I don’t think there’s any great rush for them to punt him in January given the CL money is in the bank and they’re still in the Europa League, but in general terms Lawwell isn’t paying Rodgers £2.5m a year (or whatever it is that he’s on) just to win domestic baubles.

    Just one win in twelve CL group matches is a record directly comparable to Smith’s two mid ‘90s forays when the media pilloried him for our performances.

    They may be trying their damnedest to paint that particular turd for Rodgers and the Yahoos at the minute, but another year of failure and the Fat Jap is going to be asking why he’s not getting more bang for his buck.

    Nonsense.

    Teams will have a look at him and realise he spends the majority of his time sidelined through injury.

    Maybe I'm being too optimistic but I can see a bit of a mini crisis happening at the paedo dome soon, especially if they lose a game. I think Hibs will beat them at the weekend and all of a sudden Rodgers will feel a bit of pressure for first time.

    A few Celtic fans in work have been slating Sinclair this season, they've slaughtered Roberts since he was on the bench most of the time and he's on £40-45k a week!

    I can't imagine Griffiths wanting to warm the bench the full season either. That young lad on loan from PSG got on before him the other night and his face was tripping him.

    Dembele will be transferred for a record fee, it will happen.

    As for a mini crisis, I hope you are right but they are 67 games unbeaten domestically, they are absolutely strolling it. A crisis is a long way off.

    As for Hibs beating them this weekend? No chance.

    In all fairness, it was rumored to be a £6m move to spurs, which in EPL terms is the equivalent of the £750k we spent on Candeias.

    Did he get injured again during the CL game, hopefully not trivial. He seems to injury prone for a highly tuned superstar 40m player.

    Southampton will buy him for an undisclosed fee thought to be in the region of £25m.

    Reality will be an undisclosed fee in the region of £5m.

    I'm sure Bitton was an '£8m target' for someone a couple years back as well. Boruc was another IIRC.:rolleyes:

    Louis Moult is top scorer in the SPL, Dembele is joint 15th, so Moult must be worth £40M :p

    A random EPL outfit would easily spend 10-15m on him in the hope that he scores a handful of goals a season.

    He's a decent prospect as a striker, no more, no less.

    The way he was billed you would think he was the best ever CF to grace the SPL.

    He was excellent last season and scored a hattrick against City in the Champions League, would be better if he left as doubt they could replace him with as good a player

    I hope your right with that last part, i think after 1 team beats them there will be a couple to follow as they have yet to experience any real pressure. Hopefully when/if mcinnes comes in we put a string of results together under him and could still be something to salvage from what has been a hectic season.
