A Celtic fan not rating a Rangers player, shocker.
Don't worry, no one is asking about Edouard.
I never said I never rated him, he’s a good player for that level, what I said if you rate him why not go for Lawrence shankland, he scores goals aswell, also not against Celtic, although I don’t think Lawrence shankland has ever played against Celtic, could be wrong.
Shankland plays in the Scottish Championship, weird comparison. All this “morelos wants to be Eddy” sounds like a 12 year olds opinion as well.
It's actually shocking that anyone seriously consider a player who has been sent off 5 times in one season. That is one more than was dished out during the entire World-cup.
This is a guy who seriously can't take any kind of provocation - what would happen if United played City, Leeds or Liverpool ?¨A disaster waiting to happen. I don't even know how much "bonus" you get for being sent off 5 times You do get get a bonus-game for the second sending off - so maybe you get 5 for the 5th extra .. I really don't know
I have no interest in Morelos.
However if we have interest in these types of players we’ve got to move faster and not let them join the Southamptons of the world because their price then triples or worse.
His disciplinary record is much improved this season. He looks like a different player in that regard. It's also important to realise that there was a huge target on his back last season and he was being booked for absolutely anything.
He’s a good goal scorer so why is it a weird comparison?, counter argument would be comparing morelos and Dembele for fee wise, Dembele has scored against Man City and PSG then so they can’t ask for same fed Dembele went to Lyon for then?
also when I was saying morelos has never scored against Celtic to be fair Edouard and Dembele never scored against rangers, they would have if they ever played against them.
Gary Hooper was the last Celtic player to score for Celtic against rangers.... a wee trivia question for you.
Edouard scored last time against rangers did he not.
I think he’s alluding that Rangers are dead..
like I said, he posts like a 12 year old
That might be the case - but until he has shown an improved record over several seasons, that is not the kind of player you sign in the situation we are in. It's way too big of a gamble
It’s not even 9am, lad. Put down the Buckfast.
There is no way you are 30 years old.
Yeah, just looking Edouard is 5 in 7 against Rangers.
As for Morelos I think he would be a great addition and at low cost about £30m would be enough.
Even if he’s not a starter he would significantly improve or squad, maybe like a Louy Saha off the bench or starter type player obviously the goals are there.
Was really hoping we were going to firm up our interest in him last summer when £15m was being talked about, he is everything Benteke isn’t. Unfortunately our board have an aversion to investing these days and I fear we have missed the boat again.
But sometimes the gamble is worth taking and if the fee is reasonable the club can recoup most of it if it fails. However the potential upside is huge and we do have a couple of young talented strikers in Martial and Greenwood so it's not exactly like we would be struggling for goals if we sort our creative issues.
Nope Edouard has never played against rangers, it was Gary Hooper in a 3-0 victory in April 2012, my mistake I said Commons but it was Hooper that scored the last ever goal for Celtic against rangers.
2/3 million? are you shopping in 1990?
You’re being a bit naughty. Start looking for another forum
Would take him as a cheap option. But I'd take just about anyone for some goals at this point. Creativity seems the bigger need for us though.
I can't unsee MC89's posts
Nobody cares if he hasn't scored against Celtic yet. Overall picture he looks promising. He's improving. Some are now even comparing him to Suarez. His workmate is high and he scores out of nowhere: https://twitter.com/passandmove3 He's doing this alot in Europe whenever he gets a sniff on goal. He's only 23.
Saha was v good for us, no way is he close to what Saha was, if it wasn't for injuries he be still talked about. Perfect for Rooney
Yeah I agree, Saha was a great player. Morelos is similar he can play with his back to goal, score from nothing, poach and hold a ball up just like Saha.
Will he ever be as good as Saha I don’t know, could he be better maybe...
Another quality goal from Alfie today. He's unplayable at the moment.
That strike was very Berbatovm Persie, Suárezy, etc. A more competitive league may help his development.
Scored his first goal for Colombia last night. Last minute winner.
Genuinely unbiased when I say I don't even think it was his goal. Keeper saved it, comes back out and hits the other guy on the deck then the goal is given and I'm positive the ball didn't even cross the line.
Not entirely fussed though, if he's credited with it then good, might crank up interest in him ahead of January. Rangers a one-man team right now so sooner he's sold the better.
Good player, no doubt, but nowhere near as good as some people are now claiming. Compared to Luis Suarez and calls for Manchester United to sign him...
I see the similarities.
I can only assume you don't watch a lot of Rangers (which is odd given you're a Celtic fan) if you think they are a one man team.
