I heard a wee rumour today from guy at the golf not sure of his source. Palace looking at Alfie as
they are expecting Zaha move to utd. Apparently contact been made and a offer of 12 million with add ons is price range being discussed.


1.) 03 Jul 2019 19:50:23
Sorry ment Arsenal not Utd.


2.) 03 Jul 2019 20:04:19
I did notice he never played in any of the half in the bounce game today, and we put out completely different 11s either half.


3.) 03 Jul 2019 20:56:32
I hope the club would expect a bit more cash from Premiership sides than that, going on the current prices down South.


4.) 03 Jul 2019 21:19:57
12 million will get knocked back Rangers want 20 million.


5.) 03 Jul 2019 21:51:47
Palace would be a good move for him however I’d be holding out for £15m seeing as they’ll have the best part of £130M to play with from their 2 sales.


6.) 03 Jul 2019 22:04:16
12mil plus add ons and a sell on is around the mark I expected.


7.) 03 Jul 2019 22:07:58
Taking alfredo morelos's very poor disciplinary record into account, i think anything between £12-£15million is a fair price for alfredo. I rate morelos highly and truly think IF he can get his head sorted and control his temper, he has undoubtedly the talent, to become a top striker in a top league. I said in the middle of last season, i wouldn't want us to sell morelos at all and if forced to, for nothing less than crazy money. I have now changed my stance on alfredo and would sell him for £12-£15million.


8.) 03 Jul 2019 22:30:32
A bit more cash than £12m for Morelos? I think that’s well overpriced for him so I would take that in a minute!


9.) 04 Jul 2019 00:02:57
If we do sell him we have to get another quality striker in . Still feel we're short in that department. Defoe ok can score but need someone younger with a decent track record .


10.) 04 Jul 2019 01:21:24
Interesting that none of the replies are remotely disputing this story. First time I've seen that on here. Maybe because it's either true or wishful thinking from all of us. It's clear most sensible fans have no patience left with him.


11.) 04 Jul 2019 07:27:33
Great reply RFCRB, I think you’re right, if we could cash in on him I think most fans would be happy. Just not sure who we’d bring in to replace him as a full season with European games is tough on a 36 year old.


12.) 04 Jul 2019 09:52:38
IMO we’d regret sellin Morelos for less than £15m. Like him or not he is a proven scorer, strong and fit - Defoe can’t play every game so we would need to find another gem on the cheap.

For me, I’d keep him for another year unless we get £20m.


13.) 04 Jul 2019 10:30:45
The guy is now a Colombian international striker, with a superb goals to games ratio. When Kieran Tierney is getting valued at £25 million, i would expect at least £20 million for a proven goalscorer. Remember some clown down south once paid Rangers £9 million for Alan Hutton too, and that was a long time ago - let's skin those idiots for all we can!


14.) 04 Jul 2019 10:39:03
"with a superb goals to games ratio", but hasn't scored against anyone of note and very few of his goals have turned a draw in to a win or even a defeat in to a draw. Take what we can get or we'll end up getting very little.


15.) 04 Jul 2019 11:11:02
He scored in the Europa league, is that enough for you? Seriously i dunno why so many of you guys are so desperate for a paycut here. I wouldn't let Alfredo go for less than £20 million, regardless of discipline. Neymar has a terrible disciplinary record, but he's one of the most expensive players on Earth. Ryan Jack has a terrible record too, as do many many players. Stop lapping up the media b*****ks for a second and look at the prices down south.


16.) 04 Jul 2019 11:14:30
STYAB are you Jonathan Sutherland, Chris Sutton or Andy Walker?


17.) 04 Jul 2019 11:40:12
Styab. he hasn't turned draws into wins with his goals. What a ridiculous statement. So what your saying is, his goals in outright wins aren't good enough. You would rather we were drawing or losing games so he could bring us back? Crazy. Best striker we have had in a decade or more. Yes his sending offs are embarrassing sometimes but i love his rubbishhousery. Mad little colombian person. Hope he retires at rangers. let's be serious. if i played for rangers i'd be diving, rolling about pretending i'd been elbowed, fighting the opposition. because i hate them all. About time we had a wind-up merchant in our team and morelos is exactly that. 20m minimum.


18.) 04 Jul 2019 13:08:40
Rip their hand off for 12 million.


19.) 04 Jul 2019 22:28:41
Just a thought reading the speculation about Tierney. Realistically how much do you all think barisic would be worth. Domestically he has been forgettable but he is the starting left back for Croatia and from what I have saw and read he is performing well. Still only 26 so good few years in him. Would like to see him kick on and be consistent next season.


20.) 05 Jul 2019 11:40:53
I would expect Newcastle interest in Morelos to increase now that they have sold Perez for 30 million and also could be potentially losing Rondon to West Ham. We have to stand firm and get what we want for Morelos if he is to go, could be wrong but he is contracted until 2022 I think. I wouldn't even discuss a sale until someone offered 15 million, I would also be looking at add ons + sell on percentage too. Scottish Clubs can't keep allowing the diddy clubs in England to come in with low ball offers for our best players!


21.) 05 Jul 2019 12:32:33
10 million an I'd let Morelos go think we are better without him as end of season proved.


 

 

24 Jun 2019 16:29:30
Was on sky sports SG has confirmed Aribo currently having his medical. Barring any late issues welcome to the Famous.


1.) 24 Jun 2019 17:44:56
Until medical is passed I aint counting any chickens. The pic of Turnbull with top on could come back to haunt Celtic as rumour has it there is a small issue with Turnbull medical. Heres hoping Aribo passes with flying colours and has the scarf above his head this evening.


2.) 24 Jun 2019 18:24:08
Aye definitely agree but the turnbull one is weird ud have expected him announced but there's rumours on twitter that there was a knee issue that popped up but tbh who actually gives a toss not our player n on a better note gerrard ain't interested on the derby job.


3.) 24 Jun 2019 18:33:11
Got to agree, the site of MoJo signing for us will haunt them to their graves!


4.) 24 Jun 2019 19:01:10
Hopefully rangers put in a percentage of any transfer for origo.


5.) 25 Jun 2019 10:08:04
I never realised we were already selling Aribo.


 

 

22 Apr 2019 01:23:39
This season imo was all about getting a team on the park that can compete and I think SG has done that. The main problem has be consistency but I now feel that SG is starting to get an idea of what his best team looks like. Next season we should be so much better Steven Davis and Defoe will be up to match sharpness. Kamara I think will be the best midfielder in the league. SG has now found the best way to use arfield. McCrorie will improve again as will Jack.

Rossiter and Docherty get constantly putting in man of the match performances for their loan clubs, so should return better players. Jordon Jones if he can emulate his international form will be a brilliant signing.

I also think that morelas and Kent will stay for another year.

It's also great to see that SG is addressing our right side as I feel that we have lacked cover for candy and tav. We now have polster and hopefully Hastie and with our youth be up there with the best in the country. I full expect a couple of them to make a big push for the first team.

So onto transfers a good standard striker, attacking mid and a centre half.
If dave king sticks by his word in that that all players sold and season ticket money will be re invested in the team then SG will have between 10-15 million and double that if morelas is sold, to invest in three new players in those positions.


1.) 22 Apr 2019 05:30:06
Agree with what you say apart from Morelos. We need to get shot of him. Yes he can score goals but he's not a team player and he's a liability. We also need to get rid of the likes of Coulibally and Lafferty. I would put McCrorie out on loan to get game time as he needs to get fit. I still don't know his best position. Dodoo, Holt etc to get off the wage bill.


2.) 22 Apr 2019 05:54:57
Need morelos sold before we have to pay somebody to take himo.


3.) 22 Apr 2019 09:07:55
The season was about a lot more than just getting a team on the park that can compete. We failed miserably to compete for any trophy this season. Particularly now with the form we are in and with them dropping points regularly its a massive disappointment that we failed to maintain any sort of consistency throughout the season because if we had we would be right in the mix just now. Only a miracle will bring us any chance now.

I think kent will stay and I think kamara is a bargain as well but I'm not so sure about morelos. The way team is playing just now you wouldn't dare upset that by putting him back in there. Someone said yesterday about playing morelos in arfield's role which is just nonsense, arfield brings so much more to that role than morelos ever could. Morelos will be gone I think, he doesn't appear to have the mental capacity to change and will continue to be a liability. Shame really because he could be so much more. 👍.


4.) 22 Apr 2019 09:10:25
Morelos is a frustrating one this season. He never got a single red card for HJK. Most this season have been reaction rather than bad tackles. I think he will realise to play he has to keep the head. If he does it won't be mid to bottom half EPL teams wanting him but top 10. I think he has shown bags of ability and potential to go far just needs time and composure.


5.) 22 Apr 2019 09:15:23
Two years. Two year ago we signed a young Colombian by the name of MORELOS. for some obscure, unfathomable reason there are still folk who think his name's Morales?


6.) 22 Apr 2019 11:19:43
Who cares patmo85.


7.) 22 Apr 2019 13:15:54
Pretty sure Charlie Adams and Richard Goff do.


8.) 22 Apr 2019 14:09:15
Also nobody on the post called him morales.


9.) 22 Apr 2019 17:36:26
Bellshilllad

You assessment is spot on. Although he has let his team, himself and us down too much this season. We will regret selling him on the cheap as I believe when he is 25 will be playing for a top 10 EPL team or similar. Think of some of the mad s*** you did when you were early 20s.


10.) 23 Apr 2019 11:34:12
I’m pretty confident he won’t be playing in a top epl team ever.


11.) 23 Apr 2019 17:27:55
McCrorie isn’t unfit! He doesn’t need to go anywhere as our Boss has repeatedly said.


12.) 23 Apr 2019 17:38:47
Agree L17. I would like him to play more often, but not everyone can start, but we need a strong squad to cover injuries, suspension or loss of form. Plus a bit of rotation.


13.) 24 Apr 2019 07:26:54
Top goalscorer though he is, I have to agree with some on here that it would be better to sell Morelos and get what we can. He is disruptive and has cost us points. We seem to have been a better team unit in the last 3 games without him. Defoe is a lethal striker and Davis is now showing what we know he can do. Get rid of some of the dead wood like Lafferty, Worral and Flanagan. Let's win the last 4 games and get closer then with new signings and youngsters breaking through we'll be there or thereabouts in a year's time!


 

 

30 Mar 2019 01:51:38
Got a wee name would be a major gamble but my God if paid off.

Will keep you guessing till the end lol currently on barcas books but on loan attacking midfielder valued at 1.35mill. Legal issues could get jail time. If legal issues were resolved would be best player in Scotland aged 32.

And the name Arda Turan. Barcelona and Turks want him gone.

Now I'm ready to get slaughter lol.


1.) 30 Mar 2019 06:15:41
Doubt it would happen. How do you know he is valued at £1.35m? 😂

Champ manager?


2.) 30 Mar 2019 09:34:19
watched him a lot at atlético stewarty, he was dynamite any idea why turks want rid - is he trouble?

1.35m does seem very odd for a player of his class tho at 32 he’s still got plenty to offer.


3.) 30 Mar 2019 09:46:19
Where you are getting 1.35mil from god only knows. If they were that desperate to get shot of him they wouldn't keep him for the sake of 1.35mil, they'd let him go for free. Nonsense👍.


4.) 30 Mar 2019 10:34:24
I've just Googled him, and allegedly he is facing sexual harassment, assault charges plus charges firing a gun in public.

Supposedly could get up to 12.5 years.

Also sounds like an absolute nutter ans got a bam earlier in the season for assaulting a ref.


He has undoubted talent but its a no from me 😂.


5.) 30 Mar 2019 13:22:38
tbh don't care what he's alleged to have done, he's a stonkingly talented player who'd be the best player the SPL has ever had.

But yes, a total fruitcake.


6.) 30 Mar 2019 15:10:41
Why are Barcelona holding out for 1.35 mil with a charge sheet like that🤔😂👍.


7.) 30 Mar 2019 15:15:31
I don't know about best player Scotland has ever had like, we've had a few that were brilliant whilst with us and a few more that have gone on to win the most prestigious honours domestically and internationally.

He could be Ronaldo but this guy sounds like he has a screw loose, all we'd get is more headlines.

Not that its a realistic scenario in the first place.


8.) 30 Mar 2019 15:41:10
Mentioned my job on here before. Dealt with Spanish Interior Minister Valaska Gomez and Word direct from Spain he has mental problems. Raises few issues, is he worth gamble, but God two fruitcakes in old firm game something with him and tic guy. Finally if ripped broonie new one live on screen would be something. I'd take him just for that possibility. Club large institution and can help guy thru mental issues. Christ money peanuts. If our player and he gets sectioned what hell have we lost? Prob get back in interview rights alone.


9.) 30 Mar 2019 17:27:51
Coldo he is valued at 1.35 million on transfermarket but I'm sure he would be free as Barcelona want rid. Just get mr finley over to turk to sort his legal issues lol.


10.) 30 Mar 2019 17:53:16
Lol stewarty 😂👍.


11.) 30 Mar 2019 19:45:57
haha well played Stewarty.


12.) 30 Mar 2019 20:16:24
He will also be on 80 to 100 grand a week.

{Ed0333's Note - is Arda Turan still being paid to play football? He must go down as the biggest transfer mistake in Barcelona’s history.


13.) 31 Mar 2019 00:11:00
What a player at athletico as well.


14.) 31 Mar 2019 05:29:16
According to transfermarkt he is ed. Baggage or not I would take him in a minute. Some player total waste of talent.

{Ed0333's Note - I’m not sure if he’s that good anymore mate. He lost it after leaving Atletico chasing the Barca cash his career nosed dived after that. He does do a lot of charity stuff tho so that’s a redeeming quality.


 

 

17 Jan 2019 21:09:03
Thought I would post this even thou think it's bs
Anyway was in the boozer stepps bar when a guy who says his brother is a football agent joined our company . This is what he says that the famous where in talks with Alexander Pato agent about bringing him in the summer window for a cost of around 4.5 mill. Apparently there is a connecting between SG and Pato and their mrs are good friends
As I said think this one is a none starter as must be on a fortuni in wages also never met this guy b4 so unsure if he is gen bloke but thought I would post anyway incase someone can maybe do some digging.


1.) 18 Jan 2019 00:49:56
Given Milan want to resign him I highly highly doubt it.


2.) 18 Jan 2019 08:27:28
think someone pulling your leg Stewarty

as you said will be on ridiculous wages as was once in china, nowhere near the player he was for 2 seasons at milna and nowhere near suited to style of scottish football

i would be astounded if this is even a converstaion SG is having.


3.) 18 Jan 2019 14:33:33
Yeah thought that myself did a wee bit of digging he is on 1.65 mill wages per year jbf so no chance we would come close to paying that unless he is free and 4.5 mill the guy spoke about was wages. Anyway he is off to milan as far as I can see so non starter.

15 Jul 2019 09:36:54
Brill result yesterday. Some excellent performances.

I was listening to SG post match interview, where he speaks about signing filip. Quote he stated that he will bring balance to our team, being left footed and could form part of a 3 at the back.
Now my point is the last time we tried three at the back was against Motherwell, Motherwell overran us. SG had to ditch this and revert back to a standard back 4 in the second half of that game. I'm sure we dropped 2 points that game.

So what I'm saying is that if his plan is on occasions to play with a back 3, then why are we not practicing this formation in these meanless friendlies. Ie one half a 4 and second half a 3.
This would allow our players to be more prepared to play each system.

Yes I'm like every other fan and loved yesterdays result and the one against Oxford ect but imo these pre season friendlies should be about more than just bedding in new players and appeasing the fans. Imo SG should be trying different systems and styles of play in these games. Having watched the French game again, they didn't care about the result, they where more about what worked and what didn't work. If you get a chance to watch it again. They changed their formation on at least 3 occasions.

I get building momentum, confidence and clean sheets keeping the fans happy ect but we should be using these games to better prepare our players for a long season ahead.
I have never seen it done before but I would even put our players down to 10 men for a period of 15 min in at least one of these friendlies.

Your thought guys.


1.) 15 Jul 2019 10:28:03
How can we practice it before Hellander signed? there's still 2 friendlies to play.


2.) 15 Jul 2019 10:53:02
They changed there formation 3 times because they could not get the ball. We over ran them everywhere. A team there size do not go into any games not caring about the score.


3.) 15 Jul 2019 11:15:19
Mike ger how not? We still have 3 centre halfs even b4 helander signed.


4.) 15 Jul 2019 13:56:07
But none of them left footed . mike ger glad at least you get it. boys we are doing amazin wi Stevie g . let’s leave it to him and just enjoy . 4.0 Marseille. every time they got the ball. We took it back off them. and that's without
Scotty Arfield snd only 15/ 20 min with Kamara . feels good.


5.) 15 Jul 2019 14:44:11
Guys I'm not saying SG is not doing well but there will be games this season, when we are not playing so well and we need to grind out a results esp in away ties in Europe. For example 3 nil up yesterday, The last 20 min playing 3 at the back I think would have been a good option to try in a real game not the training ground.


 

 

13 Jul 2019 13:09:08
I would like to get your thoughts guys. Imo by a country mile the best signing we have made is Mark Allan. I really don't think he gets enough credit. The way he has recruited and transformed our whole youth set up, getting SG and his team, some of the business done with a limited budget in the transfer market have been for me quite stunning.


1.) 13 Jul 2019 13:32:45
I think you can see it most in that the majority of players brought in are internationals, albeit some at youth level. Walter Smith always said there was a duty to keep the quality of player at rangers high, Allen and Gerrard (plus the board) are bringing that back.

I can't see any English player in Scotland getting a call up mind to England team - who was the last person to play for England whilst playing for a Scottish club?


2.) 13 Jul 2019 13:48:17
hes done alright. Stunning? I think is pushing it a bit. Transfers have been a bit hit and miss.


3.) 13 Jul 2019 13:51:21
I totally agree. The way modern football works it’s not the managers that sign players anymore. Yes Gerrard will have the ultimate say on if we go for a target or not and will meet the players to discuss his ideas for them and the team, however it is Allen and the team he has set up and working around him that do the work to identify possible players and do all the negotiating that’s involved in putting the deals together. And with the way football and footballers are nowadays that’s a massive piece of work. And to think, a few months after he arrived there were a lot of folk questioning his purpose, calling him a waste of a wage and wanting rid of him.


4.) 13 Jul 2019 14:27:05
terry butcher?


5.) 13 Jul 2019 15:43:47
gf7 not sure who was the last player to be capped for england while playing in scotland i thought terry butcher but did gazza get a cap don't know of any others?


6.) 13 Jul 2019 16:04:33
Paul gascoigne.


7.) 13 Jul 2019 16:46:08
Think it was Gary hooper. Pretty sure Alan Thompson had a solitary call up too.


8.) 13 Jul 2019 18:20:24
Well pleased with Mark Allen so far
Our first team squad is starting to look like a squad that with a couple more quality players could actually win the league - it’s miles better than when he arrived that’s for sure.
The whole structure of the club is mikes better with improved coaching and scouting systems now in place

The youth system is looking like it could save us millions and in turn bring in millions

On the subject of youth I would love to know the structure of Billy Gilmour sale to Chelsea
He is starting to push on and is now playing on friendly games
I would hope that we get a decent fee if he plays a 1st team competitive game and also have at least 10% sell on
If he does well we might do very well out of it.


9.) 13 Jul 2019 18:45:44
Did Fraser forster not get a call up too?


10.) 13 Jul 2019 19:17:07
Think it was old celtic keeper last got called up a remember him belting out god save the queen.


11.) 13 Jul 2019 20:11:14
Paul Gascoine.


12.) 14 Jul 2019 03:40:31
It was Alan Thompson. Hooper never got near the team and Forster only when he went back down south.


13.) 14 Jul 2019 12:42:25
think the last player to get an England cap was from the other side of the city. Not sure if hooper did but Alan Thomson definitely did. For us it might have been Michael ball.


14.) 14 Jul 2019 12:43:34
Alan Thompson or fraser Forster was last one can't remember.


 

 

10 Jul 2019 12:15:55
I see that the rumour of us signing Skrtel have resurfaced. I personally hope they are true. If I look back to all the great successful teams we have had, we have always had a killer, G Robert's, Bomber Brown, N Cooper to name a few. Skrtel for me comes into that bracket and it's something our current team lacks imo.
I also think his experience esp in Europe will help our younger defenders.


1.) 10 Jul 2019 14:14:49
we had a top class defender in Alves, with bags of experience, look how that turned out? Its a no from me.


 

 

09 Jul 2019 22:24:51
Well done to the famous and the Tims good results for both let's get co ef points up. So that when we get 55 this season, we only need to play a couple of qualifiers.


1.) 10 Jul 2019 08:12:26
That'll go down well, Stewarty! 👍.


2.) 10 Jul 2019 10:01:58
I wouldn't want the knocked out early either tbh, if they did it would be a big advantage for them in league. Both of us ending up in Europa would do me.


3.) 10 jul 2019 10:08:18
Stewarty - 'well done to the Tims', what's that all about mate?


4.) 10 Jul 2019 10:33:38
He’s acting with some class The Stuck.


5.) 10 Jul 2019 10:41:26
Does the co efficient not just apply to the actual club rather than what cont.


6.) 10 Jul 2019 11:48:56
thebear82 correct!


7.) 10 Jul 2019 12:31:15
Correct @thebear82, and if you’re not good enough to get past some of the dross in the early rounds without the help of co-efficient points then you don’t deserve to be there! 👍.


8.) 10 Jul 2019 12:38:47
Listen guys I know what some are thinking but I always try to look at the big picture. I want all Scottish clubs to perform well in Europe. Ups the profile of our game. This in turn allows us to buy better players and when we win the league increases our chances of qualifying for the group stages of the CL, which is what we all want.

I may be wrong but from what I'm led to believe. The individual co eff points only determines if your seeded in individual rounds. However the general co eff point determines how many qualitiers that we need to play.


9.) 10 Jul 2019 13:28:24
Individual coefficient is used, however if association is higher that is what is used, .


10.) 11 Jul 2019 06:08:05
I think some miss Stewartyblues point. I too would rather see rangers progress in europe because it raises the profile of Scottish football therefore increasing revenue both domestically and abroad. And more importantly if you are occupied in Europe there is less chance of you winning the league lol.


 

 

07 Jul 2019 23:18:06
I know it was only Oxford but what I liked about today was 5 different scorers. Last season we had an over reliance on Alfie to get the goals.
From what I seen today is their is goals all over the team.

Wish the Katic effort had sailed into the net. Some effort reminded me of big Bert's goal against the dims.

Welcome to the famous big man. Well done my and SG. To pick up a world cup current swedish international approaching his prime for under 5 million, with today's crazy prices is simple incredible.

Some of the work our club have done this year has simply been stunning Kamara 50k Aribo 300k Edmundson 700k Jones, Hastie and Davis free.

I post on here a couple of days ago about palace interest in Alfie. What I was told b4 the story broke in the press was any interest is pending the Zaha deal going through with Arsenal. The fee that has been offered is 12 million with add ons. No where near 19 million. I will try and get some more information re what the add ons are from the guy if I can.

I've only seen the boy play in the playoffs and on you tube and he looks a unit very strong physically and appears to be good in the tackle and at driving forward.

I really hope we get him because as much as I'm happy with our central mid atm but one area I feel its has been lacking for such a long time is that big physical presence that can drive at defences with strength and pace from deep and make things happen. Aribo seems to be that sort of player.

Jack, docherty, rossiter, Kamara, Davis, halliday, arfield are all more suited to pass and movement. Imo none of them are players that drive at defences. I think the closest we have to that driving force is McCrorie.

As for the debate between Aribo and Turnbull. Turnbull imo is a very good player but very similar to what we already have. Again comes into the pass and movement bracket. Where if I was to compare Aribo he is more like the dims Rogic or Ntcham.

Our team have not had a decent player that can play that role in such a long time so it would be brill if we manage to sign him.

Hopefully Kent and Aribo and Edmundson to follow.

That will be Kamara, Jack, McCrorie, Jones, Hastie, rossiter, Docherty, Middleton, Katic, ojo all under 24 young and hungry.

Guys I'm not saying SG is not doing well but there will be games this season, when we are not playing so well and we need to grind out a results esp in away ties in Europe. For example 3 nil up yesterday, The last 20 min playing 3 at the back I think would have been a good option to try in a real game not the training ground.

Imo our young players are assessed in stages. First stage is having a player promoted to train with the first team and on occasions be named on the bench in say a cup game. Maybe some game time depending on the result say 3 nil up bring on for 20 min. Then loaned out to Scottish champ. Brought back again, included in first team friendlies and training then loaned out again maybe twice to English league one clubs.

Docherty is one that has taken his chance, Rossiter, Middleton and McCrorie will need to prove they are good enough to be regularly included in the first team Squad. I believe that Mayo and McPake ect are all at the first stage in their development atm.

With regards to Docherty I believe he is now in the first team squad, it's now up to him, when he gets his chance, to do what Kamara has done ie make himself undropable.

Imo each young player who has potential at 18 is given a 3 year contract, with option of a further year to progress through each of these stages.

Listen guys I know what some are thinking but I always try to look at the big picture. I want all Scottish clubs to perform well in Europe. Ups the profile of our game. This in turn allows us to buy better players and when we win the league increases our chances of qualifying for the group stages of the CL, which is what we all want.

I may be wrong but from what I'm led to believe. The individual co eff points only determines if your seeded in individual rounds. However the general co eff point determines how many qualitiers that we need to play.
