Let me give my assessment of the current squad
Please remember that any players who we go for
A have to want to come to Scotland and have to be affordable

Gordon a fairly good keeper yes we could look for better but who
De Vries making up squad numbers

Lusnig starting to show his age
Gamboa can only play in a back 5 has pace but?
Ralston still very young

Simanovic could defend better slow against top players
Boyata a better defender than Simnovic but a poorer passer
Sviatchenko leaving soon
Ajer very raw needs more time

Teirney has been found out at times in defense but is still very young

Brown how long can he go on
Biton not up to CL otherwise good squad player
Ntcham only been here 5 months more to come
Kouassi again only just come to the club needs more game time so we can assess properly

Armstrong has reached his level cannot see him developing any more
Macgregor very important 6 months for him needs to push on a bit

Forrest best start to a season winning over fans but he needs to make a greater impact over 90 mins and not in rare bursts
Roberts this season is over where does he go next?
Hayes did not understand this signing over 30 and unlikely to get a regular start

Sinclair having a poor year so far but still scoring Forrest could learn even when having a bad game makes an impact

Rogic not sure how to assess flatters a lot but does not grab a game by the scruff of the neck and dictate the game
Griffiths the most natural goalscorer at the club but lightweight and that is what BR and others don, t like
Dembelle second season syndrome
Edouard taken a little while to settle let's wait until the end of the year
Christie could be the long term midfield creator we desire could be not guaranteed
Not included any more as I don, t see anymore making an impact soon
maybe Johnstone.

Agree0 Disagree1

@jonace: that's just about right, the interesting thing about Christie is that he could be the one to replace Armstrong ( who looks like leaving ) . When you look at the positions that WE think need to strengthen and then its a case of how much? and does the player want to come to the Scottish league?
Do we spend £20m on 3 players plus wages?
Do we sell Moussa if the right Bid comes in?
Whats the issue with Griffs not starting?
Do we look at trying for PR, he could be cheaper due to poorer season?
A top CB?
A Right back?

there a few issues to fix but im sure BR and PL will get them sorted.

Roberts has had a terrible time of it, losing a proper pre-season has caused his injuries and form lapses and if he is to be out until March/ April I think the loan should be terminated and either buy him or forget about him?
The frustrating thing for me this season is having to wonder how many of last seasons successes will actually turn up and play a decent game and too many of them have flattered to deceive or failed too many times for weeks now.
Hayes has found the pressure of the 'step-up' too much to handle, while Rogic, Boyata, Armstrong and Moussa have not progressed or improved enough and I agree Lustig is past his best and lacks pace, and stamina.
The bulk of this squad can all play better, but maybe the pressure of the undefeated run or just plain fatigue has taken it's toll?
Griffiths seems to be out of favour - apparently for some sort of incident or situation with the manager - and if that's correct, then putting him on the bench instead of the stand defies logic.

The good news is that even though we are under performing, we are still top of the league, with a trophy in the cabinet and Europa League football - if only for another round?
The winter break and transfer window will be very important in re-focussing, replacing and refreshing, however, we still need to get back to some sort of form to assert our authority and dominance.

So in summary jonace you think our squad is p*sh.
