Ed whens the deadline bud for signing for play offs.

{Ed007's Note - It's not changed since the last time I put them up ;) 7 August 2017 (24.00CET) for all matches in the play-offs.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Cheers ed need to get there finger out then if any bodies are coming in.

{Ed007's Note - You can still sign a wildcard as well in this round. I wouldn't hold my breath on any signings before Monday night.}

04 Aug 2017 15:39:50
Agree same every year hope it doesn't bite them on the arse.

{Ed007's Note - What happened to getting players in early to have them settled for CL qualifiers that Rodgers - and every previous manger - mentioned? Against Rosenborg the only new signing that started was Hayes and he'd have been on the bench if we had a fully fit striker.
Is our main transfer strategy really waiting until EPL teams name their squads and see what's left?}

Looks like it ed and waiting to guarantee CL football before spending any more, at least we spent something on Ntcham, slow progress.

{Ed007's Note - Where was he Ntcham other night? Our most expensive signing since Brown and he's starting on the bench on what was the most important game we've played so far.}

Said before, maybe fans should adopt clubs policy and not commit to season tickets until we know what or who we will be watching. 😳.

ED, I'm not on to have a moan but in your opinion is it Rodgers u think that's reluctant to bring players in ( and I know they need to be the right quality) or do u think the board could be doing a bit more to help him out? The reason I ask is we've now at this moment got 1 fit centre half, 1 nearly fully fit striker and with an opportunity to bring a couple in before this next tie, what do you think the chances of that happening? I'd see Brendan s point about playing bitton or lustig at centre half if we didn't have the opportunity to sign before this next tie but the fact we do have an opportunity to bring 1 or 2 in given the injuries we have, surely it makes sense to do so if possible.

{Ed007's Note - I think it's a bit of both to be honest, Garry but I think the most important thing is the CL qualification and not for the money side but to have that carrot to dangle in front of potential signings.
We've got more than one fit CB though, Simunovic, Ajer, Lustig can move in there and it looks like Rodgers fancies Bitton in there as well.}

04 Aug 2017 17:35:29
Ed the reason we don't buy early and its only my opinion is that we may get a better player once the other teams have not sold players with say onky 1 year left on their contract. A lot of ayers are frozen out then so better value? Not how i would like to do it but its so regular it can only be tbe reason. We do need another striker but sure Dembele is going no where. What do you think our chances are against Astana.

{Ed007's Note - We are certainties to go through imo.}

04 Aug 2017 17:08:28
What's your opinion ed on Scott brown so far this season? Personally I think he looks bulked up and has been slow and negative in his play. I think the international matches is starting to catch up again and unless he kicks in to gear soon he should be replaced with nitcham as euro teams will take advantage of his form.

{Ed007's Note - The season hasn't really got going but I think Brown's been fine and Sinclair has looked a lot rustier than him so far.}

I read we were guaranteed at least 8m now even if we end up in the Europa. The club should have been working on something to tie up thursday morning if we qualified. I know two weeks is a stretch to get a player settled in for the next round but if they were a quality addition, it wouldn't be impossible.

04 Aug 2017 19:23:15
Thought broony was immense the other night apart from getting caught in possession a few times.

04 Aug 2017 19:47:46
Ed what happened with the Caulker talks, do u think the club is waiting on City naming its 25 man squad?
That's my impression anyway, and I don't do impressions lol.
Incidentally when do the EPL need to name them by.

{Ed007's Note - Rodgers met Caulker the other week but whether that was to talk about a move or just some advice regarding the players' personal problems I don't know. Going with what Rodgers has said today it doesn't look likely that Caulker or any other CB will be brought in now. All the talk of Caulker having a future at QPR are wide of the mark though, even though they're saying the right things to the media the owners told Caulker's representative's in June that he wasn't 'welcome back' - that's the words Caulker himself used. I was hopeful that a deal would be done but again going with Rodgers words it doesn't look likely. I still think Sviatchenko would have been sold this window but I guess his injury would put paid to that unless he's going to be fit enough in 3/4 weeks to pass a medical
The deadline for registering squads is 17:00 on the 1st of September but players, agents and other clubs will find out before then to allow players and agents to make decisions over their futures.}

I think some people want to buy players because then they can say to the opposition supporters, look we have bought so and so, for so many millions, Celtic are well covered at centre back and more than well covered in midfield, once the new guys bed in, the only problem areas are goalkeeper, I am a big fan of Gordon, but if he gets injured, I have no faith in De Vries, and LG, if he gets injured, we need to buy a striker, with Moussa out till September, and I think we should put an offer in for Moult, I am not sure what the story is with Ciftci, but I think he is a player if he is handled the right way, he could be an asset to the club.

Aindoh that's bull mate, no matter how good a player or team is it should evolve and become even better when circumstances are right, we made a hell of a lot of money last year and no matter how you dress it up we are buying potential and waiting for even more money from guaranteed income if we make the group stages . There is and should be enough cash from last season to tempt at least 1 or 2 players in their prime that would walk onto the team and improve it but we find ourselves playing with maybe 2 or 3 players out odmf position and risking the entire season as far as champions league is concerned . Take the risk and if it doesn't work then the players will be here for next year's qualifications.
