I've read this week that we're interested in Michael O'Halloran of St Johnstone and John Soutar of Dundee United. Both sound like ideal signings and would fit in well with our style of play and be pretty sure of making the starting 11. That's vital for a career move and they just have to look at an ex-Hibs player, now Celtic, to confirm that one.

Kfraser Soutar would be a good deal if we could capture him but mate we ain't playing a game of Fifa here. We won't get players like that until we get to top flight. SA left hibs for money and now he's kicking himself as he ain't playing. Why is people still going on about this guy SA he made his messy bed let him lay in it. No but honest Soutar would be a good signing young too.

There have been a lot of excuses made about our inability to compete with Celtic because of finances. Fact is that Celtic have dismantled us with ease in our last three encounters with a team which hasn't cost very much. I do think some of Pedro's signings have worked out well but the big money signings which haven't were too high risk. Celtic now make up around seven of the Scotland national team with Griffiths the most expensive signing of them and that wasn't for much. I've read plenty of posts saying the likes of Walker and McLean are overpriced, we can't afford them, let's wait till next year and get them on pre contracts or that they're not good enough. We couldn't afford them because we blew the budget elsewhere and blew it in more ways than one.

Can't argue with that, should have spent the cash on them instead over priced over rated banditos.

Whilst I agree that better targets were available etc and your post has a lot of merit, I take exception to the "team which hasn't cost very much" theory.

Sviatchenko 1.5m
Simunovic 3.5m
Boyata 1.5m
Sinclair 3.5m
Kouassi 3m
Ntcham 4.3m
Brown 4.5m
Lustig 2m

That's over £20m by my count on 8 players (figures are rough estimates from Transfermarkt. com)

Their squad I would estimate is roughly 3 times the cost to assemble vs ours. Whilst I also appreciate that ours is the same variance vs Aberdeen, Hibs, hearts et al, we aren't dismantling these teams with consummate ease, so why are Celtic able to do it to us.

My thinking on that is simple, they invested better and their manager is better.


3.) 05 Oct 2017 10:47:28
We aren't dismantling hearts hibs aberdeen with ease blueblazer because most of the players we bought aren't good enough and the manager is obv not up to it either as his judgement was the reason we bought these players. It really is that simple. Instead people come up with every reason/ excuse as to why we are poor. As I said the reason is simple, most players and the manager is not good enough.


4.) 05 Oct 2017 11:00:13
Great points Blue Blazer.

Their manager is better and he is the difference, that coupled with the core of their team being together for many years. We need to remember some of those players have been there since we played in the 3rd Division

Pedro may not be the one to topple Rodgers, but if we get behind the manager and allow him to build a strong nucleus of a squad, we may be able to bring another manager in with abit more pedigree in the coming seasons. if need be.

Deila was a disaster for them let's be honest, but he had an eye for a player by the looks of things and I actually think Pedro is pretty well respected in the scouting network too. He has been involved in scouting and coaching at many big clubs around Europe before he was given a permanent job as a manager.

We are moving forward, not as fast as people would like clearly but this is a journey I don't think any other club in world football has had to endure.

aberdeen didn't have to change 8 players that's why and sorry have we played them yet i must have missed that game


6.) 06 Oct 2017 01:14:41
Blueblazer your list of 8.players costing 20m plus well 3 of that 8 didn't even play in last 2 -0 defeat throw in Gordon teirney Forrest McGregor tonic Griffiths roberts (loan) n dembele who all played some part of game n u talking 1.5m in total for them


7.) 06 Oct 2017 10:30:46
They've got a better manager plain and simple. it doesn't mean because they've got a guy at 3m (kouassi) that he's better than a guy they got for abt 150k (armstrong)

If Scottish football is so different to Mexican football why buy Mexicans to play in Scotland? Just trying to apply a bit of logic and common sense. The likes of Waddel, Wallace, Souness and Smith never did. Maybe they knew something Pedro doesn't.

1.) 08 Sep 2017 14:39:26
yes kfraser but Pedro fresh from his teaching stint in Portugal, is now offering all the British players lessons in Brazilian to help them integrate.


2.) 08 Sep 2017 15:05:36
@Tim - No such language as Brazilian. Brazilians speak Portuguese, Portuguese speak Portuguese too funnily enough, Mexicans speak Spanish and you talk nonsense.


3.) 08 Sep 2017 15:19:26
Thats abit much for a Tim to take in Swayze


4.) 08 Sep 2017 17:18:41
kfraser, totally agree we should stick to Scottish players and forget all the foreign shite that can't adapt to a new league like, Laudraup, Albertz, Tugi, Amo, Vidmar, Edu, Canigia, Kanchelskis, any Dutch, Mendez, Gazza, Bogerra, Papac, Prso, Niemi, Arveladsie, Aluko, Bkorland, Mikilochenko, Marvin Andews, 20 countries that imported utter pish to Scotland and done nothing, why would Mexico be any different, send them back.


5.) 08 Sep 2017 17:26:06
TJBB, you are making me chuckle😃KFraser is it just Mexicans and Portuguese you don't fancy?

I see 'Rangers target' Doukara of Leeds has signed for a Turkish club. I don't believe he was ever on our radar and glad he's not joining us. No where near good enough. Walker is the player we need. As for the Mexicans, questions have got to be asked if they can adapt to the Scottish game and why Pedro's judgement on the transfers wasn't challenged by the board. More than a few eyebrows were raised by experts in the game at the time and all the board members know all about Rangers and Scottish football.

Can't believe the posts saying Miller has been given a free role in the team and drops back to midfield when he wants and support it. It sounds like Rooney and Man Utd last three seasons to me. He's either no.9 in the box or he's on the bench because he's useless in the middle of the park. At 38 this year we really need a centre forward peaking in his career. 3 points over sentimentality every day.

Id take naismith in that role


2.) 09 Aug 2017 07:50:15
Defo take naismith

Reading Cathro's comments on Jamie Walker today, it sounds a lot like Scott Allan and Barrie McKay. His heart's not in it anymore and he wants out and the best thing Hearts can do is let him go and take our offer. Hibs didn't have the decency to let Allan follow his dream and I suspect Hearts will give the guy what he wants. To play for Rangers.

It's not about leaking private talks or about history and all the heart and soul stuff, it's about who's the best player we have for any position that counts. Miller is a number 9 and he's lost that to Morelos. He's not a midfielder and can't play out wide. He's 38 soon, lost a lot of pace and reaction time and I certainly don't dream of a team full players 10 years past their prime.

Would have been better than Pena. 'You can't get all signings right' shout some. At 2.5 million it was a signing that had to be right.

We were prepared to pay the asking price of all our foreign signings but somehow when it came to SPL based players they were all suddenly overpriced according to our men in charge. Obviously not.

Nobody's questioning his commitment but some are facing up to the reality that he's approaching 38 years of age and not cut out for playing wide or dropping into the midfield. Granted he's good in the box but it ends there. He's slowed down a lot and his forward passing doesn't get pass marks. There's too much sentimentality surrounding Miller and you say some of the remarks here are a little unfair. He never gets criticism, far from it, he gets away with a lot when others get hammered for mistakes.

It's the nature of a fan to be critical when criticism is due and you want the best for your team. To support a 3 legged donkey in a blue shirt means you support letting the other 10 players down and blindly accepting the manager's decision to play it in the first place. Most posts do give credit where it's due.
