Talking points

Good morning gents,

A few wee talking points, Ajer amazingly is back kicking a ball in training after only 10 days. Eye socket could have meant a lot longer, very pleased with that.

We are a baw hair away from having a fully fit squad for the first time in ages, the very pleasing thing is that the players who had to step up, when we needed them too, have shone.

On a side note, how the fook can we get so much grief from UEFA for a banner or Palestinian flag and actual petrol bombs are thrown in Athens, be interesting to see the punishment handed out, Greece and Turkey as well as a few Eastern European venues are war zones but they seem to get away with murder.

Benkovic will be first pick for Leicester next season when Maguire leaves so we've no chance of keeping him.

He might not leave but stuff like this won't help our case...

Celtic's on-loan central defender Filip Benkovic can go all the way to the top like Liverpool ace Virgil van Dijk, says former Parkhead striker Frank McAvennie. (Sun)

He's not wrong in my opinion.

I've seen enough of him to see he can be every bit as good.

He's got great composure for a 21 year old centre half.

Is he not on about 50-60k per week in other words forget about it !

Yeah i think it's in the region of £40K-£50K.

Benkovic looks a tremendous player , he's slotted in seamlessly, very good on the ball and in the air

We have zero chance of getting him :

Just concentrate on getting

Patrick Roberts and the new Cafu in january and I'll be producing vinegar with every stroke

I don't know why it's a discussion?
He's just been signed for around 13m
He's played well and they have paid most of his wages. Ergo he's now worth significantly more and has a long contract.
You're lucky to get him on loan. Had Leicester not came in for him you may game signed him at 7m or so. Now he's unavailable to all but a handful of clubs and will almost certainly be at Leicester for 2 seasons minimum.

Its a football discussion website Lauders

Jesting, your right he is not going to become a Celtic player on a permanent deal, I will be happy enough to see him here until the seasons end.

Have no problem paying a few top stars £50kpw. Henrik was on £45k was he not? VVD would have been worth it but never got close.

So long as we have a top manager able to manage the squad expectations and keep delivering it should be fine.

Yesterday's wage survey for this season reported our basic average at £866k making £30m total for a 35 man squad - actual 33. The annual report has our total labour bill at £60m. Pistol & BR take a big wedge. No big player bonus this year for CL.

Trim the squad to ~30 & use the money for guys that should play when fit.

"aww wit if he earns more than him"
