I have seen that aswell it said 20 mill bid for a player based in Scotland dembele would be my choice over Defoe and hogan, also just seen fonte wants out of Southampton he would be a great signing.

Yeah he probably does and if we did go for him we'd only offer half of southamptons valuation.

What bothers me most about Dembele is; why pay £20 million now when we could have signed him for a £500k Bosman in July? Granted he's scored 19 times this season but let's be honest, only 3 of those goals are against what you'd call quality opposition - The rest are against the likes of Ross County and FC Astana. £20 mill's a huge punt on a Fulham cast off imo.

I doubt we would get him anyway celtic I think would want more than that and that's if we have actually put a bid in.

Hey Billy, what are you talking about? Celtic got Dembele for 500k because of the cross border rule! An English club would have paid millions for him. Tottenham tried to get him for £6 million in Jan to save a tribunal. Moussa Dembele is going to be a world beater! He's already done more than Martial, and Deschamps has said he'll be in his next squad in March. He got around 40 caps playing at every level for France. To even mention him in the same breath as Hogan is an embarrassment. He's 20, and doesn't really have a weakness - he's super strong, super fast, he's 2 footed and good in the air. Look at the 5 goals he scored against Rangers, every one is brilliant. He's got 4 in the Champions league, which is a better record than any player his age in his first season since the competition started. He'll never end up at West Ham - Mourinho has been watching him since his Chelsea days, Pochettino obviously rates him, Wenger is keeping an eye on him. Liverpool have already told Celtic they want kept abreast of the situation! On top of all that he qualifies as a home grown player. Zidane said recently he's one of the best young players in Europe! Look some of our players have been stolen over the last few years, Wanyama, Forster and Van Dijk were all worth more, so it's not happening again. You've got characters down there moving for fortunes, Ross McCormack for £12 million - he's nearly 30. Villa also bought a lad from Bristol City for about £15 million and he's rotten. Your problem is the players down there aren't as good as you think they are - talk about delusions of grandeur! Celtic would beat West Ham if we played you tomorrow! We've just drawn 4-4 with Man City over 2 games and could have won both! I like West Ham, - we have you Frank McAvennie, you gave us Stuart Slater in return right enough, which wasn't cool. You also got Di Canio off us! You need educated mate if you don't fancy Dembele! Another rumour is Real Madrid want him because Zidane loves him, and he'll stay on loan at Celtic.

Another thing Billy - you're raving away about us only beating Ross County and Astana well before you start shouting your mouth off check the facts. I can't remember the last time we lost to an English team. We've a great record, even going back to us beating a world class Leeds team in the semi final of the European Cup in 1970.

Under Martin O'Neill we knocked out Blackburn and Liverpool on the way to the UEFA Cup Final. We beat Manchester United in the Champions League about 7 years ago and just drew with City. You need to sort yourself out so you do. Are you a Sevco fan? If so, I know you must be hurting, still it's only going to get worse! 10 in a row is already a given! Celtic have never been stronger!

The average age of our team is 23 and with Brendan Rodgers we have a manager who properly know the transfer market! Bolasie £28 million. Stones £50 million. Alonso at Chelsea for over £20 million - Celtic knocked him back when he was on a free transfer at Bolton. I could go on and on, it's truly bizarre!

Well via Celtic, and I think he done alright for you. If you only got him because of the push well it says more about West Ham's standing than anything else!

Anyway I wish West Ham all the best for the season, the fact you're struggling is more down to circumstances. The lad from Swansea getting injured in the first few weeks, Payet still coming down from playing with France and moving from Upton Park etc etc. Celtic have a standing area now and it's incredible, I heard your chairman was enquiring about it/ spoke to us, - it would make a big difference to that new stadium you've been landed with. I just want a fair price for Dembele because I think he's a better prospect than Van Dijk was. Cheers

Oh sorry I forgot if a player plays some games for a club they own him forever, by the way we got frank mcavennie from St. Mirren celtic bought him from us I've got nothing against celtic at all by the way and total agree it's a big club but you don't exactly attract big names anymore

I think you'll get a good price for dembele to be honest I don't think he will go this window if I was celtic i'd wait until summer, still you will win the league this year and Griffiths is a decent replacement anyway Good Luck to ya this year aswell

Delphic. Much of your post makes good sense mate. I liked it. However, just to correct you, we got di Canio when he was snubbed by Sheffield wednesday after his famous referee push incident and nobody wanted to take a chance with him. Also, Di Canio has a West Ham tattoo, not a Celtic tattoo, Speaks volumes mate.
On a different note, you 4-4 aggregate score against Man City was indeed a good result, however, last season we beat them twice and I expect to beat them tonight.
However, results do not make a club bigger or better thank nan other - it's fans do!
I rate Dembele highly and think £20 Mill is a lot of money for the player, however, when I compare Dembele with Zaza who I believe we were going to buy for £25 Mill at the end of the season, he appears to be fairly valued. COYI
