Two good wekeends in a row.

Gap now at 7 points, albeit Rangers have a game in hand.

With about 20 minutes to go yesterday I was sure we weren't going to find a way through, never mind score 3 lol.

Away to Motherwell on Wednesday is a tough fixture, Rangers at home to Hibs

I thought Celtic were poor enough yesterday and the score line flattered them a bit, Hamilton battled rightly and weren't afraid to mix it up. These plastic pitches seriously have to go, to play 6 games a season on artificial pitches in this day and age is a disgrace and Scotland need to get shot of them as they do have an impact on how you play and the personal used not to mention the injuries (although this is not 100% proven yet).
Glad to Sevco slipping up the last few games as we have not done much wrong to be fair (take the last Sevco game out of it) the fact that they have kept winning too was a worry for me but to slip up the last two games just gives us a we bit of breathing space and now puts slippy G under some big pressure, he doesn't really back his players in a way that most managers do. He makes sure he covers his own ass (Mourinho style) and isn't afraid to tell the media how poor his players are/were. Another one or two poor results and the wheels could fall off completely.

Absolutely sensational stuff from Edouard tonight.

The best Celtic player I've seen since Larsson.

He'll go for big money - better than Dembele.

I don't know if he's better yet, Dembele has done well at Lyon and now a rated 60m target.
Edouard has markedly improved season on season, you'd think if he doesn't stop improving at this rate, then he'll be entering Larsson/Henry territory.
 I hope Celtic can hold onto him for another season, at least to Jan 2021. It should be no problem to hold off the likes of Southampton and their paltry cheque book. Southampton was a limbo that Celtic players had to endure on their way to better places.

MS in my opinion i believe French Eddie is better than Dembele in fact i think he's much better but it's difficult to compare them all be it they're strikers but totally different. Dembele is all power and pace and of course can finish too but for me Edouard has it all...the we touches, the dinks, the dribbles, the free kicks, beating 2-3 men with ease and playing in his team mates.
He is so unselfish which is really rare for a striker, Edouard always looks for the best option rather than score himself. He just put's it on a plate for his team mates, Celtic are going to get mega money for this man in the summer which i believe can reach 45m - 50m. G Strachan was saying last night to avoid the middle clubs and just go directly to the Man Utd's, City's of this world.
What i admire about him is his modesty and how quiet and reserved he is, just seems to keep himself to himself and do his talking on the pitch...please stay injury free until the end of the season and cash in big time...I would love he stayed but we all know that's not going to happen, so to get scary money for him in the summer and invest a good chunk of that on players would be great...(P Lawell will prob bank it but hey...)

Edouard has everything - the ability, power, pace, technique, composure and vision. He's also got a great attitude, he works hard, his temperament is fantastic.

The worry for me is that he enters in the final 2 years of his contract next year. I think Celtic need to give him a bumper deal now, extend him for an extra 2/3 years, throw in a 50m release clause and some bonus to sweeten the deal for him in the event he does capture a mammoth transfer fee. Ideally we will keep beyond this season but his contract status will likely have other clubs alerted.

You'd despair at the amount allegedly offered for Richarlison by Barca, when Edouard is on another planet compared to him.

Agree Richarlison is poor finisher for that type of money

Ah jaysus come on. What planet are you living on?

Whatever about the transfer fee but Richarlison has performed against the top teams and international standard players every week in the premier league on a poor side.

Edouard plays dundee and aberdeen every week for a team far superior to everyone else in the league.If Edouard really is that good why is he playing in Scotland for Celtic amd no one tried to sign him in the January transfer window?

Fair point but I'd be juding it on potential.

Van Dyik, Wanyama, Tierney, Andy Robertson, Demblele etc. all played in this league. In a way you find out more about them there, on crap pitches and against a load of kickers. If they can handle it there, they'll stand out and get the big move.

Potential is the key word. None of the top sides in Europe will sign anyone from Scotland because the standard is so poor. Almost impossible to judge them.

The likes of Van Dijk and Robertson were signed by lower level premier league clubs who are willing to take a chance on them.  Only when they stood out in the Premier League for these so called weaker clubs did the top clubs look to sign them

It is not often that Celtic fans unite 100% on a players quality. When a player has that quality he will shine on whatever stage. That is a truism in football.
The same dumb argument has been used before about Henrik and other spl players and I use the word dumb with restraint, Edouard same as Henrik, does what he does on whatever stage he plays on, SPL, France underage, CL  and EL.
He will play at the top level for years to come and succeed. PSG, as rich and all as they are  will regret having let him slip though at a nominal 10m or so.

They will now. There's a lot of success stories from Celtic in recent years who have gone on to bigger and better things.

The important thing is that Celtic stand firm and if they do sell them they get their genuine worth.

Edouard is good enough for a top club right now, his performances in Europe have been brilliant, 11 goals in 6 u21 caps for France - just gone 22 years old. He is one of the best young strikers in Europe right now. When you see a bit of clogger like that Haller chap at West Ham who went for 45m then there's no way Celtic should be considering anything under 40m for Edouard.
