Have many of you heard of the boy Johnson, were you aware of him before the link? . I don't know if he is any good but playing for Preston doesn't automatically make you a great player. He is 27 years old, Preston paid 50k for him, to date Preston are the most notable club he as played for, is this really the great signing that so many of you are suggesting? . If so I think we are in trouble. I could be wrong but given his age I would have thought that if he was a superstar, most of us would have heard of him before now. I say even if it puts the club under, get decent players in and stop ten. I wasn't born in 66 or 67 but it's two years that I'm continuously reminded of, how bad is it going to be having actually lived through them getting 10.

Lots of players were later bloomers Ian Wright and Jamie Vardy are just two examples and neither of those two turned out to be half bad. I'll judge him if and when we see him in a Rangers shirt and to say you'd go under just to stop 9.75 is ridiculous.

The days of us signing superstars is long gone I don’t know much about the boy myself but the championship is a decent level and seemingly he is one of they’re best players so let's wait and see if he signs he might just do well for us 🤷🏻‍♂️.

bsmate what drugs are you on? You would prefer us to spend big and maybe go under to stop them winning 10. Unreal if we did stop them then we did go under they would eventually go on to win 10,11,12 and more in a row because there would be no one to challenge them. We are looking good and going in the right direction and we won't be far away come May I honestly believe this will be our year, stay aff the glue though.

Ger88, the situation is pretty frustrating for all of us, I see Celtic bringing in young players from home and abroad, keeping them for a few seasons and then selling them on for big money, not to mention the sell on clauses they always manage to add in. We need to do more of that. This boy Johnson isn't the next wright or vardy, I think you probably know that as well as I do. Obviously I hope he can do a job for us but I just find it worrying how hyped up signings like this become. Everyone goes on about how Celtic are signing nobody's just now, well it's them who laugh when they sell them on for millions, and this has been the general way of things for years.

he has not signed till he’s wearing the jersey.

15 Sep 2020 01:41:29
So what exactly is it you want us to do? Sign young nobodies and chance them turning a healthy profit.

Celtic have also wasted a good few £Millions also on duds, I do agree though, we need to stop giving our younger players away too cheaply.

15 Sep 2020 09:40:51
yes but the tic don't sell their dumplings on the cheap, they don't give them away either like we seem to do.

15 Sep 2020 13:41:27
Tried to sign him on Fifa and he was going to cost me 8 million as a guide price.

15 Sep 2020 13:43:36
I just said the same trueblue, we need to see a return in cash on our transfers.

Johnson doesn't fit the ideal signing strategy and I had to look at YouTube ( which I wouldn't normally do but wanted to see what he can bring) . He can play Centre Mid or Attacking Centre Mid and is left footed which is a bonus to bring a bit of balance. Looks like he like to take a shot from outside the box, something we need from our MF. £1.5 - 2m for a player who's contract is up in the summer is a bit steep for us but, 12 goals last year and 7 assists in the championship which I rate a much better league than ours is a decent return. So yip, I would take a chance on him, we should be able to recoup that fee in about 2 or 3 years no probs if he plays well enough.

15 Sep 2020 19:05:44
Yes we have let players go at substantially reduced transfer fees but think of the inflated wages these players have been collecting every week.
It’s like NIGHT AND DAY the value of our squad since the appointment of SG.

and by the way Celtic do offload duds just like us. they have had plenty on the books that they told to find other clubs and made losses on them.
