What's everyone's view on the squad so far? I think we have improved with Lundstrum and Fashion definite upgrades on Zungu and Stewart.

We also have Simpson and Wright who came in early in January and that should have a benefit.

Looks like Edmundson will leave (hopefully with a sell on) and I could see Katic out on loan then hopefully replacing Balagon next season. Kelly looks a prospect for when we loose Arfield and Davies probably next season?

We can afford to loose Barker and Jones, possibly keeping Middleton as a squad player due to the number of games we will have.

I'm guessing any big sales will depend on CL qualification - will it be one or two leaving?

Have we improved enough to compete in the CL? What's everyone's thoughts?

Bee we r well off champions league standard, however we r making significant progress.
Simpson is a very good player.
Lose barker Jones Middleton Edmundson hastie

Keep Kelly as a squad player and to rotate with Davis and arfield.

2.) 26 Jul 2021 12:58:10
Personally think that barring any major players leaving the squad is looking great for another canter in the league. It’s hard to say wether the squad is strong enough for a decent showing in the champions league as it’s a step up from what we’ve came up against before in europa. I know it was only a friendly but If last nights first half performance is anything to go by then hopefully we can give a good account of ourselves. Regarding player sales, if we fail to reach the champions league I think 2 players will leave, most probably Alfie and Kamara.

3.) 26 Jul 2021 15:15:21
Yes agree with you both, I think would take another season at least of progress before we could look to progress from CL group stage but hopefully we have a good season ahead and will get the league and some cups!

Squad is in a much better position than previous years and we have valuable players now to offset the debt on our balance sheet if needed.

I do think will be one sale if we qualify and maybe 2 if we don’t. But I’m sure the team have replacements lined up for this.

If we qualify for CL and win league again will be a good season. I believe next year is automatic qualification if we win the league?

4.) 26 Jul 2021 16:38:03
For me the squad “might” be good enough to scrape it into the group stages. Last night was not only just a friendly but a friendly against a very very weakened Real Madrid. The signs are positive and I like the look of our new players but one game at a time. The key is not to lose too many key players now.

5.) 26 Jul 2021 18:32:07
Alloa what r your thoughts re Simpson, I think he is a very good footballer, good pace and passes the ball well.

6.) 26 Jul 2021 18:54:46
I’m not convinced by Simpson yet, I agree he’s a good footballer but yet to be convinced he is a good defender. Hopefully comes good however.

7.) 26 Jul 2021 20:09:07
Progress from champions group? Let’s get in it first lol.



06 Apr 2021 15:26:21
Tav signed a 2 year extension to 2024.
I can't believe some people are saying Patterson should replace him already after a few games and the outstanding season Tav has had.
The boy needs time to prove himself, if he does that in training then Gerrard will see that and promote him to first choice on merit when he is ready.


1.) 06 Apr 2021 16:06:10
Not that he should replace he WILL replace him, there's no 2 ways about it, whether Tav stays this year or not I suspect they will get more and less game time, meaning more Patterson less Tavernier, both are quality.

2.) 06 Apr 2021 16:08:10
Bee everyone entitled to have an opinion.

3.) 06 Apr 2021 16:54:18
Have my meds been playing tricks on my eyes

I’m sure he had long since been promoted to first team.

4.) 06 Apr 2021 17:06:05
Bee everyone allowed an opinion .

With Tav signing I think it will stop the growth of Patterson to be honest but hey ho.

5.) 06 Apr 2021 18:31:41
Of course they are, and I agree Patterson looks like he should have a bright future but I can’t understand the calls to get rid of Tav and replace with someone who has only played a few games.

6.) 06 Apr 2021 22:13:17
Bee did u actually read the whole thread and understand the rationale.



22 Aug 2018 15:44:36
How do we think the team will line up now given the signing of Lafferty and the injury to Murphy?

Will he stick with one up front and rotate Lafferty and Morelos? Hard to drop Morelos given his form right now.

Other option is play two up front, that would mean dropping a winger and playing someone in behind front two however?


1.) 22 Aug 2018 16:01:37
Lafferty can play left wing if need be.

2.) 22 Aug 2018 16:06:12
I think he will play lafferty on the left.

3.) 22 Aug 2018 16:56:35
Candieas, Morelos, Lafferty as a front three I would be happy that👍🏼.

4.) 22 Aug 2018 18:30:08
My team would be


Flanagan. Goldson. Katie. Brasic

Tavernier. Jack. Airfield. Kent



5.) 22 Aug 2018 21:29:04
MOLS, Barisic is cup tied just now.



23 Apr 2018 17:24:24
This would be my assessment of the current squad if i was the manager next season. Would free up around 10 spaces - bring in a few less with higher quality.

- Foderingham: Decent player however not good enough to win us the league. Keep but bring in someone to challenge for no1.
- Kelly: Keep as young prospect
- Tavernier: Keep, our best player this season
- John: Decent player should get better
- McCrorie: Keep but better as MF IMO
- Alves: Still a player in him however if can bring someone better on same wages then would sell
- Wallace: Needs to fight for his place
- Holt: Good squad player to have
- Docherty: Good prospect
- Dorrans: Could be a big player for us if fit
- Jack: Decent player and cover for RB
- Rossiter: If can stay fit could be a great player - big IF however doubt anyone would buy right now anyway
- Cummings: Make loan perm
- Morelos: Would keep however if a big bid came in would sell
- Murphy: Make loan perm
- Candeias: One of our best this season
- Windass: Would keep however if got £3-£4m would sell.

- Alnwick: Not seem much but not good enough for no1 (£100k)
- Bates: Already signed Hamburg (Free)
- Cardoso: Not good enough (£100k - £250k)
- Hodson: Not good enough - Free
- Martin: don't sign from loan
- Halliday: Squad player at best however if wanted would sell - Free
- Dalcio: Cancel loan - Free
- Goss: Cancel loan - Free
- Miller: I think will leave - Free
- Hererra: Sell - £100k - £250k


1.) 23 Apr 2018 18:41:00
Not posted for a while guys but just want to voice my opinion and see what u guys think. I thought before P.C and I still think now that our board should be looking at Tim Sherwood. The guy is a great coach bringing through players like harry kane and dele Ali at Tottenham. He then done a decent job as manager as well. If my memory serves me correctly I'm sure he beat a strong Brendas Liverpool with a poor villa team in the cup n beat them well. Although am not sure his record at villa was great.

What you guys think?

2.) 23 Apr 2018 19:10:40
You can add Fortester Dodoo and Pena to that out list Bee82.

3.) 23 Apr 2018 19:23:22
Dodoo? Forrester?

4.) 23 Apr 2018 19:44:01
Cardoso hadn’t done much wrong before he got his snib broke IMO. He’s worth more than 150-250,000 ALL DAY LONG

5.) 23 Apr 2018 20:19:27
Bee when u list them like that we have some rubbish kicking about.

6.) 23 Apr 2018 20:22:33
Wouldn't sign Murphy

7.) 23 Apr 2018 23:02:59
Strum he didn’t bring through Ali he came from mk dons so I wouldn’t class him as bringing through the youngsters he’s not good enough for us

8.) 24 Apr 2018 11:25:59
Bee82, if we went with your assessment we would be challenging for 2nd/ 3rd again next year. Now out of all the players you want stay- how many would get into the Celtic team. 2 or 3 at most.

We need 6 or 7.



08 Jul 2017 09:52:59
So now that Dorans is in do we think there will be any other signings before the new season?

I think we need to replace Barry McKay as Dalcio didn't look great, O'halloran could maybe do a job this season with his pace however that's 2 managers not playing him so obviously don't fancy him.

I guess it depends who we manage to get rid of as we still have Keirnan, Waghorn, Forrester, o'halloran, crooks and windass who need to go.


1.) 08 Jul 2017 14:00:58
I'd like to see us get Walker from Hearts, think he'd be a cracking signing for us.

Maybe Pedro plans on playing Dorrans wide mate, he's played there the majority of his days at West Brom.

2.) 08 Jul 2017 16:34:22
I think the past few seasons he has played in centre though. We need some creativity though as we had none in Luxembourg! Walker would be a good signing I think, we need someone with a bit of flair on the wing and someone to link the midfield and attack. As much as Niko had some good touches he didn't open anything up. Hopefully penna can do that

3.) 08 Jul 2017 17:28:43
Your right he's played central recently as I suppose he's lost a bit of pace as he's aged but he'll be a standout wherever he plays I'm sure, signing of the summer IMO.

Yeah agree RFC92, financially makes sense if we have that option. The risk however is that the player takes time to settle and could that cost us the league which is worth a lot more this season than we would get for selling him in Jan.

Would u sell him in January? We would be getting some sort of fee but I expect would be small maybe £0.5m-£1m?

We would also need to buy a replacement as we don’t have the cover in the squad at that standard. That’s not a bad thing to get someone in advance to hit the ground running next season but also has a risk may disrupt our defence and league for rest of this season.

I’ll probably leave the C.V. advice to the experts tbh.

Out your list John…
McGregor - I think needs to be dropped and no new contract. If nothing else need to start planning for next season.
McLaughlin - I would keep
Firth - replace with younger player
Goldston - sell in Jan if we can bring in a replacement
Arfield - I like but getting on a bit for a squad player
Defoe - assume may stay as a coach?
Kent - we need someone like Kent as have a lack of pace and skill in the team but would sell for right money.

I think more changes will happen in January now with the new manager as he will want his own players and bed in before next season.

I actually like him, I think we will be a loss. Think what our defence was like before we got him. If we can keep Hellander, get a replacement then also replace Simpson who doesn’t seem anywhere near the first team.

We played well in patches but start of the second half we were terrible. I thought Kent played well but was unlucky not to score. Should have scored more but slack passing and bad miss from Morelos. Take the win all day long though.

Agree, you would think we were behind Celtic in the league given some of the reactions in here. We have not matched least years form but still top of the league and a chance of staying in Europe past Christmas.

Hopefully the new mgt team can motivate the team to go up a gear.

We have a squad and balance sheet with value now, we didn’t have that when Gerrard arrived. If we need funds for players then we have players we should be able to sell to raise for the new manager.

If Gerard decided to leave we wouldn’t obviously wouldn’t need to pay the rest of his contract.
