Our points tally this year shows we have stagnated a bit (others may have improved) and this might be a 2nd season thing. But the biggest disappointment for me is that few of our recent signings make the first 11 - or look likely to. Why sign lots of squad players? BR said he wouldn't do that but - Benyu, Hayes, Comper, Gamboa, DeVriies, Kouassi, Hendry, Musonda. Yes some are new and might come good but we all want a better 11 that will wipe the floor with SPL clubs and improve in Europe. The only team we can routinely hammer is Sevco😂. And although Christie and Morgan have had good seasons they are no better than Rogic, CMcG, Armstrong etc.

I think you are a bit optimist if you think we can buy better than C McG, Rogic and Armstrong . To buy players better than our best would cost more money than we can afford to spend on individual players .
I think Brendan wants to buy good players who will come to Celtic and learn and develop to become better players than we currently have . To achieve this the whole club has to work together, the coaches to develop, playing colleagues help through matches and supporters to encourage and help to build confidence.

Think you might be underestimating Morgan.

@ chris, maybe if we didn't p*ss away money on some of the players mentioned we could afford better?

Said before about how the players brought in by Brendan haven’t been anywhere near good enough! I’m just hoping that this summer we finally get our act together with the transfers in the defensive positions! There’s a hell of a lot of players who won’t be there next season, Gamboa boyata (hopefully) Dembele paddy Edouard Armstrong rogic Eric jozo DDV bitton Kouassi could all go imo! I hope I’m wrong about some of them but there’s a real chance they will be off! This transfer window coming up is BR most important since he came in I think.

{Ed007's Note - So Bain, Hendry, Ntcham, Sinclair, Dembele, Roberts and Edouard aren't good enough? Both Benyu and Kouassi were brought in as long term projects and Hayes broke his leg which is hardly Rodgers fault, Kolo Toure was brought in to help smooth Rodgers takeover which leaves only Compper, Gamboa and De Vries. Musonda himself said it it would be next season before he was ready to play regularly for us
Is it not more a case that Rodgers hasn't replaced certain players that the fans want? Most of the players you've said can leave weren't Rodgers signings.}

I agree we have squandered money (not too much fortunately) on a few that have either failed to impress, or seem out of favour?
The summer window, will see more leaving than arriving and I would hope that the few that do come in have the quality and class to hit the ground running, as the qualifiers are quickly upon us.

The recruitment side of BR time at the club has been the only concerning factor of his time here.
Yes he has made the existing players better added a couple of 1st pick but there has been quite of players brought in that are nowhere the squad never mind the first 11.

It's obvious the defence needs a look at. throw in the possible losses of Armstrong rogic and dembele and this up and coming TW could be the most crucial in many years.

26 Apr 2018 13:51:52
Just making the point ED that BR has brought in 15 players or more and not many have made a first team place there own, Dembele Sinclair and Ntcham aside, and more than a few have really struggled since they arrived. what I’m really hoping for is a vast improvement in defenders who are brought in to be honest. feel that’s a priority in the window, and it’s telling that what Brendan considers his best defence doesn’t include any defenders he’s signed.

{Ed007's Note - So it is more that he hasn't replaced the players you want him to replace? Roberts would have made a lot more appearances if he wasn't injured, the same with Hayes, we play with one striker and it's always going to be Dembele when fit, from what you've seen from Edouard wouldn't you say he has the potential to be Dembele's replacement? It's not as if Brown gets tired and needs a rest so how does Kouassi get a run in the team?
It's OK saying Rodgers signings haven't dominated the team but who would you get rid of, LG, Rogic, McGregor or Tierney just to get more Rodgers signings in?
Everyone knows the defence needs worked on, especially a long term replacement for Lustig if Ralston's not going to do and the CB position needs a quality experienced partner for Ajer so how you can say that the players Rodgers has brought in haven't been good enough is a bit off the mark for me. De Vries was a panic buy, Gamboa was brought in as back up for Lustig and it hasn't worked out and the Compper deal as I said at the time was a strange one

26 Apr 2018 14:57:15
It’s the defence I’m more concerned about ED, and the ability to bring some decent defenders in! From what I’ve seen so far we’ve struggled big time to bring in quality defenders. and there can’t be any doubt about that when BR is persuading boyata to stay on for another year! 😱😱🙈 I just want us to address a problem that’s been there since Brendan came in, and that’s getting quality defenders in! Right back at least one centre half and cover for KT is a must!

{Ed007's Note - Fingers crossed that Rodgers will concentrate on strengthening the defence AND the GK position this summer.
Marc-Oliver Kempf from SC Freiburg is out of contract this summer and what about Karlo Bartolec from FC Nordsjaelland as a possible RB? I'm not saying that's who we are after but it's a couple of players that have caught my eye and neither would cost the earth to sign imo.}

26 Apr 2018 17:36:20
Kempf is a player I was hoping we'd be interested in, he's been unlucky with injuries recently but has good potential and still young, I thought I read he had signed for Stuttgart a few weeks ago but can't find any info on it now, will be a lot teams with more financial muscle than ourselves interested in him.

26 Apr 2018 22:35:33
Jim Jim I don't think B R intended to piss away money on the players he has bought . As Ed007 states most of these players were bought to benefit us in the longer time and some have done very well at times . Don't be too hasty .
Aindoh, I haven't went to many of St Mirren's matches in the Championship so I have absolutely no idea how good he is .
Have you been at many of his games?

26 Apr 2018 23:28:31
No, only "seen a few on the 'radio'", and read about his performances for St Mirren and the Scotland young team, Old Bhoy your attitude is more or less the same as Supersalary, (who now says he worked for nothing after administration, poor thing, is he having a memory loss?, his wages were deferred, that means he got paid them later on, ) when he dismissed Andy Robertson because he was playing in a lower league, am sure Exactly did the same with LG when he was with Hibs and Wolves.
