Well for me it's been a fantastic transfer window. Some great additions and we kept all our top stars. Edouard, Paddy, Ntcham, Hayes, Benyu added and we have Boyata, Dembele, Kouassi and even Erik return to the squad if he finds form again, we have youngsters Ajer Miller and Ralston improving by the week and will be thrown in plenty throughout the season. We have managed to release players so overall our squad is so much better. On our defence I don't know what Boyata has done to deserve some of the negative views you read on here he was one of our best players and scoring some important goals prior to injury. I hope he gets back next week and I can't wait to see him line up beside Jozo. Maybe a bit of encourage for the lad would help. The invinsibles are stronger so people need to stop comparing us with PSG and Bayern and have a bit of faith in who we have. Well done Ed great work by everyone involved been a hectic few weeks, plenty debates and always good to see new posters getting involved. It's PR7 time COYBIG.

Agree with all of that Stan. Not sure what Boyata has done between a great season last season and getting injured preseason to warrant so much stick. For weeks people talking about needing a partner for Jozo when we have a good partner in Boyata.

A misplaced pass in a friendly and some fans want him replaced. Forgetting the fact that last season Jozo and Boyata played 21 games together. We won all 21! Plus I can't think of another centre half in europe whose more of a threat in the oppositions box than dedryk. He's a cert to score in at least one of these group games!

For me it boils down to people wanting to shell out mega bucks on players to cover injuries, then spitting their wee dummies out when we dont, im happy with the buisness we got done, hopefully all the experts on here will take their pants off, wring them out and stick them on the washing line, all dry and ready for january where they can start back the usual mince of undermining and bitching, but hey hopefully we will get a few months off, doubt it but i live in hope.

Well said Gents. People forget when Boyata was out of the team rather than moan about it he was out running the streets at 4am to make sure he was going to force his way into BRs plans. Give me 11 players like that any day of the week. Nothing but respect for the lad and we have missed his presence when attacking and defending corners etc.

01 Sep 2017 09:06:37
Naw we don't. But we do know the defence isn't good enough to take us to another level. Denying that is mental.

01 Sep 2017 09:22:24
We could have spent £20m last night on a defender what's to say he wouldn't have come in and been an utter flop. Then BR and the Board would have been slated for wasting cash. More than happy with Jozo and Boyata.

01 Sep 2017 09:26:54
But everybody was ecstatic when we were bringing in a untried defender from africa for 800k magic, even tho the gaffer said he was a work in progress, cause someone looked him up on youtube and he sprayed a few passes about he was the next beckenbauer. yeah undefeated defence for over a yr and its not good enough?

01 Sep 2017 09:29:36
I'd agree with all of the sentiments above, however we definitely needed a higher quality centre back. We all know we have more than enough for the league and I appreciate the efforts boyata made to improve. However, we were hanging on in quite a few European games last season and the opposition this season hasn't exactly got any easier. Also as good as boyata is offensively can people not remember when Scottish teams switched onto him and just marked everyone else leaving him with the ball as his passing was shocking?

01 Sep 2017 09:31:18
I can understand the French bhoy loan . and Roberts loan . but Shevvy is injured isn't fancied and will go . boyata has been poor, indifferent and good since arriving and he's either unlucky with injuries or injury prone isn't this his third time out with similar probs? (albeit different leg/ knee) leaving us jozo who is still a young boy and learning and ajer who's just moved to cb. so imo an experienced centre back should have been brought in even on loan . we mostly still don't have faith in our goalies so another position imo that needed addressed.

01 Sep 2017 09:25:16
For me the best bit of business was offloading Efe Ambrose to hibs, Rodgers knows what he is doing and I would wager he has a plan up his sleeve, we kept our best players and added some talent along the way, its good to have Roberts back and we got a bit of cover for Moussa and Leigh, let's just wait till next weekend to see exactly how good the new boy Edouard really is, keep the faith.

Magicpole what do you class as next level because if you are talking regularly getting beyond the group stages of the champions league then your dreaming
Very average defenders are being sold for 25-50 million down south.
Championship defenders are going for more than 10 million a pop.

01 Sep 2017 09:58:16
Agree with all that stan but a quality cb would have really pushed us on boyata and jozo very injury prone so fingers crossed they stay fit.

01 Sep 2017 09:58:50
I wondered who the first muppet would be to mention the phrase "panty wetters", there is always one. There is no doubt the squad has improved, however I was hoping for the first eleven to be stronger than then end of last season. Ncham brings us a different type of player to Armstrong which is fine. For me Boyata still can't pass the ball and positionally is suspect, I believe we could have improved such a crucial position.

01 Sep 2017 10:21:24
Dont call me a muppet just because my opinions vary from yours mate, i could call yous different but im sure Ed wouldn't post it. All these posters that think we should spend x amount on a player cause we have money then spit the dummy when we dont, are the same people that are raving about a untried boy cause they saw him spray 5 stubbs like passes on a youtube vid. the same every yr, when yous don't get what you want, revert back to slagging off the gaffer, board etc.
