I think so - we are happy to pay the money I reckon, Celtic want it in one lump sum and we want to pay in instalments.
Yes, we're being condescending. Yes, that means we're talking down to you.

Iím just happy to even be linked with a left back, after the circus in charge of our club the last 2 years.

My reading of the situation is that we want to top-load with add-ons and bonus payments up to about £23m and Celtic are wanting £25m up front. It's not that we're squirming over £2m. We just want some financial protection in the deal and Celtic want top dollar up front for their star player. Fair play to both sides.

On top of that, and referencing what @Thomas and @Bluedylan have been talking about:
Tierney may not want to leave Celtic and will not kick up a fuss if his board don't sanction it - exactly like Baines & United when Moyes went there.
But that's not the same as prefering to stay. He'll be ambivilent about it. He'll want to come to the premier league. He'll want the wages we have offered (although, let's be fair, we've probably already agreed the wages with him via his agent). but if it doesn't happen? He gets to spend another year with his boyhood club. He's ok with either situation.



The Baines to Man Utd situation is a very good comparison. Neither kicked up a fuss.

Surely the difference is that Celtic would quite like the money.

But unlike w/ Bainesy, this is hardly a "now or never" situation.  Otherwise I agree, fairly comparable.

They don't have to sell, and im not so sure the player is the type to force it either. So I think if we want him badly enough offer the money or a player + cash deal, weve about 5/6 players who they can have

Tierney for Besic and Ashley Williams, plus 5 mil if we finish in the top 4. 2.5 if we win the FA or Mickey Mouse Cup.

Most of whom will be on a salary that would smash their pay ceiling so we'd end up paying them off to go.

likes of besic on 25k, they can have him. I actually think McCarthy would take a slight cut to go there. Even the likes of browning and Galloway would be good players in that division

Mother fucker
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.
