£3.25m apparently.

Just highlights a lot of people on here giving it all that ‘in the know’ guff were genuinely talking shite.

If this is the calibre of signings we can expect, 55 is on its way.

Doc was as highly rated as this boy when we got him.
Except we got Doc for s fraction of the price and personally I don’t think this boy is much better.

Let’s see how a 19 year old boy handles the pressure he is going to be under from the hoardes to perform.
Chuck in how he might handle being bullied and screamed at by the Ginger clown
That's a fair comparison actually, although Docherty was a year or so older when we signed him.

Not saying this lad isn't decent & could continue improving - but it's not Pogba they're signing.

Hopefully an English club comes in for him so we don't get threads all season.

What both Central Midfielders 3 years gap in age. Sorry I’m no getting a hardon for a Player who put in a few good home performances against bottom 6 Clubs Turnbull couldn’t do a thing against Rangers or Celtic. It’s like this Mate if your the alright looking burd you keep company with ugly pals to make you even better looking. That’s what Hastie was for Motherwell.
Completely different types of CM, uncomparable. Hence why if you compared Turnbulls goals & assists to Kamara it'd blow him out the water. But it doesn't matter, different players.

No idea what you're on about with the rest of your post mate.

Celtic don’t really do well with progressing younger players so that’s what I’m taking as consolation here. In fact they have a habit of stalling young careers in a big way.

People would have said that last year had they signed John McGinn and now there’s talk down south of him being worth 20 million plus.

Ok compare him to Arfield? Who would Turnbull keep out our Team? What has Turnbull done that’s you’ve got a ragin boner him, was it his goal against Dundee, Hamilton or St Johnstone?

He was absolutely bullied the last time we played Motherwell at Fir Park. He'll be no different in a Celtic gersey.

He’d be a massive loss to them
I like Turnbull,but he's not at McGregor's standard yet by any means-they'll get good money for him no doubt but he's their best player and I'll be glad to see him go.

Also delighted for his family if they are as reported,good bears.

Ross McCormack has been a “10 million” player down there - it’s not a great reflection of talent

If Liverpool sold Ojo they likely get 8 million

Don’t get the fanfare tbh, he is a decent prospect who has had 1 good season. Now the lesser clubs in the league are aware of him it would have been interesting to see how he got on with Motherwell a second season.

So that lot have made their first move, we see that and raise you Aribo, Kent and Ojo in the next few days.

Our hands wins, sorry beasts

My cousins are Motherwell season ticket holders & they think Turnbull is the best player they've had for many a year.

They are gutted he's going to the Tims, they thought he would end up down South.

The leveller is that he's joining a team Lennon as manager. He's as liable to try & knock f*ck out a player as he is develop them.

Hopefully we get Aribo.

Different types but the point is valid, we’ve got to look for value and Kamara on a nominal fee or a free represents much better business for us.

In a few years time when we’re back winning leagues I’d be gutted if we weren’t in the race for players with potential like this, but for now If we’re spending over 3 million on a player they need to be guaranteed 1st team players week in week out.
The cost of Kamara really isn't valid at all, we paid 50k because he had signed a pre contract with us, I think folk forget that a lot. He was worth far more.Its fantastic value but you can't go around waiting for folk to run out of contract every year, severely limits the pool of players you are after.

Second point is fair enough, but all signings are gambles, not many's are 100% nailed on starters before you buy them. Especially coming in to this club/league. With the increase in ST money, the Europa money & the best chance we've had for the league in years fans are going to expect us to spend money this season, no matter the value we got for an out of contract Kamara.

Compare him to Arfield? Not exactly fair as Arfield is a 30 year old who has spent years in the Prom and the captain of his country. But yet Turnbull actually would look not far off him if you compared stats. Arfied is of course better right now, but could Turnbull end up better?

Not hard to ascertain perceived value though.
One was a free agent. The 50k stuff is getting too far. Would of cost us 500k-1m at least if he wasn't out of contract. And that's mainly because its Dundee.

You're always going to pay more for attacking players. Look around the world at transfer prices.

Isn’t most of Turnbull’s goals penalties?

A good prospect but we still aren’t in a position to be paying £3m for a gamble.

I’m surprised they have paid that given they didn’t pay similar for McGinn. It‘s looking more likely that Rodgers just didn’t fancy him.
They could not afford to dick about a la mcGrim. Lot of cash for an inexperienced boy.

What cause he stood out in a shite Motherwell side against bottom 6 Clubs at home. Stats big difference to goals against Hamilton and Dundee to scoring in Europe and against the papes.. gies peace.

Bang goes the theory that they are stockpiling cash for victims of the cover up.Telling you..these bastards are getting away with this!
Have you seen what City are paying out? There is a table of how much per what offence.

If they are found guilty they'll be paying a few l hundred grand max.

Genuinely the first I had heard of this boy was when Craigan was greetin' about him not winning YPOTY


He may well be a good player but I haven't noticed him against us once.

It was in reply to someone saying 55 is on its way on the back of this signing.

Which is nonsense because if we’d have signed him this board would be delighted.

You only need to look at the Hastie thread to see how opinions swung back and forth on his ability.

OK mate, you don't rate him.

I can guarantee your attitude would be the other end of the scale if he was signing for us. As would most trying to knock him.

Is he your Mate.. nah Mate if we handed over £3M for a kid after a handful of games in senior football I’d be ragin. £3M for a work in progress is not what we need and tbh not what the Tims need either.

FF is mental Haha

I guarantee this thread would be so full of excitement if it was our bid that had been accepted.

Hes a fantastic young talent and exactly the type of young player any team would be happy to have
