Evening ed bhoys and ghirls just a quick question regarding transfers this is probably the first year for probably the last 15 years or so I would be quite happy going with what we've got and keep the kitty for the summer. Would you agree ed or where do you think we need to strengthen thanks in advance

{Ed007's Note - I agree that we don't need to strengthen this window - or even the summer if I'm honest - to continue our domestic dominance but imo before the CL qualifiers next season we need a GK, a CB, CM, RW and I'd still like to see someone brought in to play the No.10 or role to compete with Rogic and cover for him when he needs rested or injured. Where do you think we should strengthen?}

For champions league i would say new pacey right back, centre half, holding midfielder and a big centre forward. Is it just me as well ed I don't really rate forrest or mcgregor
Think they are weak links

{Ed007's Note - I like McGregor and he is good enough to play in any domestic matches for us plus his adaptability to play a few positions is handy. Forrest is rank rotten, he'll have the odd purple patch but you know it's only a matter of time before he reverts back to mediocrity or worse.}

New GK to challenge Gordon would be good, as I have no faith in the deputes and only a recently changed perception on Gordon. Another dip in form could be catastrophic in the qualifiers.
Not a new RB ed? I'm happy with Erik and jozo, but need good cover for them. For me I would ship out efe and boyata and bring one in.
RW totally agree, but I think we are also light on LW. Being spoiled with Sinclair to then have GMS coming in shows we don't have the quality as back up.

I don't think we need many additions to our starting 11 (bar maybe RB) , but strong competition for places would be ideal.

{Ed007's Note - I don't get where the sudden thinking that we need a RB is coming from, I'm happy enough for Lustig to be first choice in the short term (18 months?) and I think there is positions we need to look at before RB, RW being a big one. If we can't manage to sign Paddy Roberts we badly need a RW that will push Forrest out of a starting berth.
I'm happy enough as well with Simunovic and Sviatchenko but I can't see Toure being here next year and hopefully Ambrose and Boyata will move on which will leave us short on numbers and experience/quality(lol) in there and remember Rodgers sees Ajer as a CB rather than a CDM.
Mackay-Steven is like McGregor for me, he is good enough for domestic games but comes up short for the CL.}

I only mention rb position ed because don't get me wrong as much as I love lustig I would just like to see
a young rb in the same mould as Tierney I know a lot to ask for but I think the way Rodgers is leading this team is brilliant and we can attract a better quality of player now. and on forrest he's a poor man's mcgeady and that's me being nice Haha

{Ed007's Note - There's been murmurings that Rodgers would like to bring in Jon Flanagan but I don't know if that's just people assuming. We still need to make a decision on or move ob Janko as well before we look at bringing in a new RB and we have Ralston in the youth team who is highly rated.}

I have always have been a big fan of lustig, but I was under the impression he hadn't signed a new contract yet (I may be incorrect though! ) Gamboa though gives me the fear.

Will be interesting to see how Forrest responds to Roberts leaving tbh, may become too comfortable. Do you think we could sign paddy permanently? If so do you think he'll get more game time? I have been saying that he is much better than Forrest, but as he is only on loan, Rodgers doesn't want to rely on him.

Forgot about big Ajer at CB. Do you know if he is highly thought of at the club?

{Ed007's Note - Lustig's deal has 18 months to run on it I'm sure, Kev. I was told months ago that Roberts is nowhere near being in Guardiola's plans and not been told anything different since so I don't see why we can't sign him he fancies it and more importantly IF Rodgers wants him and City don't play silly buggers over the fee which I don't think they would.}

i still think we are crying out for an attacking playmaker in the lubo mould.

07 Jan 2017 09:03:17
Def. a GK would be my priority

07 Jan 2017 09:43:00
I think Lustigs future could be at centre half! I'm happy with the two guys there but they do need cover and if we have another RB Lustig could provide that! As well as a few run outs at RB, jury is out on Gamboa! Can't see any reason why we can't get Paddy Roberts on a permanent deal! I can only assume BR is playing Forrest wide right because Roberts is only on loan! Add to that a number 10 to compete with Rogic and I would be happy! Hopefully the young lad from the Ivory Coast will provide the long term Defensive Midfielder!

would like to see a goalkeeper signed and settled in for CL campaign next season. Would love to see a deal worked out for Roberts, far better than Forrest.
