Would love to see BR go with Ajer and Hendry as the centre back pairing from now until the end of the season to build a partnership together. I know they are both young but imo they're the two best centre halves at the club at the moment.

{Ed007's Note - I said before Hendry came in that I like him and that he would be more than capable of playing for us in Scotland but I didn't think he would have settled in so quickly. Would you be happy to go with that pairing in the CL though?}

Get them playing as many big games as possible together and they could mature into a great partnership. Throw in Tierney and raleston and it could grow into a long lasting stable defence.

I would like to see how they do between now and the end of the season Ed. If they form a solid partnership then I would go with them for the CL qualifiers. Maybe Compper could be the other choice. As long as Boyata isn’t part of the equation I’ll be happy. A lot of fans on other threads seem impressed with the lad McKenna at Aberdeen. I’ve seen seen him play before but remember Hull having a couple of bids rejected in January. What’s your thoughts on this guy ed?

{Ed007's Note - I've not seen too much of McKenna but from what I have seen I wouldn't say he's anywhere near the level of Ajer or Hendry. We have enough projects and quality youngsters now so anyone coming in has to be better than what's already here.}

I like the look of McKenna, hard as nails, reads the game well, looks more than decent on the ball, Good left foot and would bring balance to the defence, definitely one Brendan should be watching .

If Hendry and Ajer have proved themselves fit and capable to put a run together in the SPL, then I cannot see how they are not first choice for Champions League.
We won't know until we try.

I think Mckenna would be a good buy if we can get him for a decent price, i like Christie/ hayes too, so maybe a swap and/ or cash, would be a steal and potential profit in it.

Don't see him as a project, then again everyday a day at school. stroll on Saturday. HH.

{Ed007's Note - If you think at 21 he's the finished article and can't get any better, why would we want him?

28 Mar 2018 21:47:00
For me Ed, no player is the finished article and a player can always improve. comment was don't see him as a project,
Just read my post again and can't find where i stated finished article and can't get any better

Just checked his history: My opinion worth a shot.

Aberdeen since 2014 Loaned out Alloa/ Ayr Scotland U19 Scotland U21 Scotland international.

{Ed007's Note - "Don't see him as a project."}

28 Mar 2018 22:40:09
Don't see him as project, does'nt mean finished article, somewhere in between Ed, think they call it a Rough Diamond.

{Ed007's Note - Potato, tomato. Chateauneuf du Pape!


1. countable noun
A project is a task that requires a lot of time and effort.

a. a task requiring considerable or concerted effort.
b. the subject of such a task

1. a proposal of something to be done; plan; scheme.

As you say, 'everyday a school day'.}

28 Mar 2018 23:22:58
yea think the above just describes football training for a team. HH.

{Ed007's Note - That's OK, I'll keep you right. }

I would like to see Hendry and Ajer given a run as well but with Hendry cup tied for the upcoming semi it might be a better idea to see how Commper and Ajer to together to get some consistency going into that game.

29 Mar 2018 23:46:55
If we stick to the 3 at the back would like to see Hendry Ajer and Compper in there see how that goes.

{Ed007's Note - 3 at the back gives me the fear, especially in Europe. I'm hoping it was more a necessity because of injuries than it being Rodgers plan going forward.}

Coming to the end of his 2nd season I would be worried if B R wasn't experimenting with different defensive formations . Sometimes when he plays what appears to be a std back four, it isn't what it looks like on paper as K T spends the whole game tearing up the wing . I know of one poster lamenting that Lustig doesn't do the same, so he wants a back two.

Most of our experts thought Hendry wasn't good enough for Celtic before he joined us . Quite honesty like McKeena, I hadn't got a notion whether he was good enough or not . I am told that when scouts go to judge a player with a view to signing they watch him for the whole time he is on the pitch, don't take their eyes off him no matter where the ball is, until they have made up their mind . Yet Celtic fans presumably watch Celtic but know whether an opponent is good enough or not .
B R has many good managerial skills, among them is definitely improving players so maybe if a young player has some of the right qualities he may make a player of him
It's refreshing to see the determination and apparent enjoyment Hendry shows.
