I see someone is saying that 6 or 7 players leaving would be major surgery, I would like to point out that as most big teams carry a first team squad of 24/ 26 players and it is rare these days for any player to stay at a club longer than 4 years in the first team. You need 6 new players each season either from the youth team or from transfers just to keep squad numbers.

Agree0 Disagree1

Jonace I was confused with Kev saying we did not need to buy buy buy like Sevco but then saying we need 4 in. And then saying 4 in 7 out is not major surgery, sorry but 4 in and 7 out by my calculations is major surgery regardless if it is needed or not. We already have youths in 1st team squad and i will wait and see where we are if we manage to get players on new contracts and our loan players signed permanently. Hopefully that is done sooner rather than later this window. Took too long getting Paddy in the summer and we have all seen the effect of his wasted pre season with Man C.

Not easy getting players out the door unless someone wants to take them plus the player wants the move. I think with Sviatchenko Allen and Ciftci already out on loan they will be the easiest to move on. If 7 is the magic number can add De Vries, Gamboa, and Compper/ Musonda if they are not playing.

For Europe we need 3 improvements to the defence, GK, RB and CH

Roberts / Rogic and Armstrong potentially leaving will need a proper replacement not Christie or Morgan - they are SPL players at best

New striker needed only if 1 goes

I agree that we can easily let 7 players go and it wouldn’t affect to 16-28 players needed for match day

For me De Vries, Lustig, Compper, Gamboa, Roberts, Musonda, Allan, Ciftci can go ( would love Roberts signed mind but can’t see it happening )

Armstrong, Rogic and Dembele could be sold if they choose to move on and we can’t allow them to leave for cheap

Not including Edouard but there is potentially 11 players that could leave.

Stan my point is that we need to add a few quality players in specific areas and try to ship out some guys who won't get a game in order to free up wages etc. Rangers on the other hand need a complete clear out and Gerrard will probably need to bring in double figures with the same going the other way, similar to Lennon's first full season with us.

09 May 2018 14:38:24
You forgot to mention Boyata, Simunovic, Miller and Bitton all of whom could also leave.

09 May 2018 14:41:06
Oh i forgot Kouassi and Hayes that makes a total of 17 players who could potentially leave.

09 May 2018 15:01:50
Eboue won’t leave neither will Hayes. The only reason Eboue doesn’t get a game is because Brown is in front of him.

09 May 2018 15:10:14
I'm with you now Kev, agree with that. Hard enough to shift any player under contract nevermind ones that are dross so i think Sevco will struggle with their mass clearance. Jonace i can't see Kouassi leaving, one of our best players v PSG at CP and unlucky not to keep his place but that is because Ntcham and others have been outstanding. Kouassi is good enough to make it at CP. Maybe a loan would do him good look at the effect it had on Ajer. We definitely need to get him playing regulary.

09 May 2018 16:38:56
Hayes should never have been bought. A total farce, but I think Kouassi has a player in him.

09 May 2018 18:22:31
Hayes is a good cover player he can play anywhere down the left and will put in a shift domestically. Hard worker which Rodgers clearly likes. Pity he had an injury or I’d imagine we would have seen more of him.

10 May 2018 11:04:51
He was awful every single game he played. £1.3m and wages down the drain. The money we have wasted on him and Go Figure would be half the money needed to actually buy Paddy.

We might have more money but wasting it is criminal on guys who are clearly not good enough to play for us right now, never mind if we want to improve.

Stop wasting money on duds or that financial power will be wasted if it’s tied up in players nowhere near what we need.
