The average Premier league salary is £51k. Celtic’s average salary is £14k. 2 years down south sets John up for life and he is still young enough to comeback to Celtic for a decade. Head South young man.

You talk far too much sense to be on the forum Sonny! I share your view.

Can’t see why he would want to go to Villa. He can get a better move than that I would have thought and if he can’t then I’d think Celtic would be preferable to Villa. 


Aston Villa play in a far superior league than Celtic. And if they get promoted then he’ll be in the Premiership.

Aston Villa is far more preferable than Celtic. It’s a no brainier.

According to Hibs fan on PB he is heading down to have talks with Villa £4.000.000. Good £1.3 million for us. If true. 

That would be a massive windfall for us that could make a big difference to our budget, whether it’s towards the stadium, new players or both. The McGinn saga seems to have been going on for ever and I was starting to worry that we’d get nothing back for him. Fingers crossed that this goes through.

all the money that Celtic have got...£7m for Armstrong FFS. And they cant go out and pay half of that for McGinn who is , if not already certainly will be a better player than Armstrong....if he goes to Villa or anywhere else in England he will kick on and improve and Celtic will never be able to afford him in the future.

I still think the most likely outcome to all this is £3m + Allan to Hibs and McGinn to f**king skinflint miserable Celtic. But, FFS, of what a circus, oh what a show.

I can see them regretting it if they don't get him. J McGinn seems to improve with every season and looks destined for great things.  

Aye, they appear to have bungled here. Given what they received for Armstrong, they could easily have stretched it to around £3M and it would have been a done deal.

Ach well, never mind:)

Any windfall does not need to be spent now.

A small percentage can be used for sensible wages for 2 players and the majority put away for a very rainy day.

Learn from the past.

We very nearly ran ourselves into ruin by spending the Ian Ferguson transfer money on overpaid, underperforming duds. Money that could have almost entirely funded the Caledonia stand.

Investments like corners being filled in, whilst a nice thought, should only be even considered in a couple of seasons from now after we've re-established ourselves in this division and we can be confident that more people are coming on a weekly basis to justify it. Relegation this season would see there being absolutely no point in this.

So in a rare moment, I'm in full agreement with you....and now I'm away for a scalding shower. :lol:

Here's hoping its settled soon so Stubbs can stop helping Hibs to find an English buyer for McGinn and focus on getting some players signed to St Mirren FC - I realise that St Mirren win financially if an English club outbids Celtic and John signs with them but its still a little odd that our manager is helping Hibs get a better offer for one of their players!

McGinn wants to play for Celtic, and they know this, however still expecting a 3 m bid this week from them............. Like above though would love it if they get outbid and bypassed. They really are cheap and nasty biscuit eaters

A few Hibs related sites are saying either that an ex-manager is helping Hibs find an English buyer or that Stubbs has recommended him to clubs like Derby, Fulham and Everton ahead of the English transfer deadline. If the latest reports are anything to go by Hibs and Aston Villa have not yet agreed a fee and Villa might only be offering £2m at the moment. At the worst a genuine bidding war could get underway if Celtic really want him.

A genuine bidding war would be a big plus for us DOP, and I'm sure that Stubbs would be well up for that, surely it is in our best interests to promote this.
