Hi guys, first post but have read the site for far too long, was time to get involved!

I was just thinking about the transfer window and was wondering if we might go back in for Rivaldo Coetzee if he’d been playing regularly for his new club. Doesn’t take much searching to find an article of his old club “trolling Celtic” after he signed for his new club with no issues despite failing a medical with us. Funny enough, just last month his new coach said how he hadn’t kicked a ball for the club since his arrival and doesn’t expect him to any time soon. Didn’t half dodge a bullet there!

What’s your thoughts on Bitton? Expect to see him move on this summer? I noticed he said he wasn’t interested in a move, if that’s the case I hope he gets a chance when he’s fit but I can’t see it unless it’s to cover defence again. Cheers.

Rivaldo apparently may have to retire.

Feel for the guy. Was hoping when I checked that he had a few months of regular football and we’d maybe go back in for him. Obviously not.

Hi Andy, new poster here myself! Hope we have a lot of 'banter' together! I remember all the talk about Coetzee, but wasn't very hyped myself regarding his signing, It also got me thinking, would Ajer be in the position he is now, if Coetzee joined? Also, with paddy leaving, Does anyone remember the name of an MLS league winger we were looking at last season? ED? im sure he's at Portland timbers but not sure regarding his contract etc atm, He looked really powerful and fast imo. I know we have Morgan coming in, which will be good, but will he step up in Europe and The Premiership? not to sure myself.

{Ed007's Note - Welcome aboard, Brendan and Andy. Is it Darlington Nagbe you're thinking of, he signed for Atlanta United a few months back.}

I would like Bitton to stay, but it is difficult for him and even Brendan if he wants to keep him, there are some loud mouths at matches who think it is there duty to chase away some they don't like, however if the management selects a player I cannot understand why we as supporters don't support and encourage all the players.

That's the one ED, thanks! I think Bitton is a difficult one for me, personally. He's naturally calm on the ball which I like, and we seen flashes of a good defender in him, but then Ajer came in and wow, The boy is so mature for his age and experience, even with the defeat to Aberdeen at the weekend he made some lovely runs, I see the VVD in him. I'll always get behind every one of our players, in Brendan we trust!

Cheers guys. I wasn’t too excited about Coetzee either but I did think we’d go back in for him if he managed to stay clear of injuries. Spot on about Ajer though, what a player, hard to believe he’s only 20.

I like Bitton too, he seems to love it here and it wasn’t long ago he was playing so well we were worried about other teams coming in for him. At the same time our midfield is packed as it is, rumours of Mcginn signing too I can’t see Rodgers playing him unless it’s at the back. Reminds me a bit like when kayal left, good player just been out of favour for a while.

I feel Bitton is a good back up player, not that he's bad or anything, i just feel we have players who are above him now so unless we get very unlucky with injuries again, then i can't see Bitton playing much, if at all, again. I liked Kayal when we had him, I just wonder to Myself how Forster, Hooper, Boruc etc feel after realising that the over-rated EPL isn't really all that! It's quite refreshing to see Dembele come to us rather than being a reserve striker at spurs etc!

Ps, i know a footballer has a very short career, and money does talk nowadays sadly! With the exception (Hopefully) of KT.

No harm to NB but we are moving on and have. I don't know where he sees himself as a player, love for the club aside. His chip in cover for cb will be reduced this summer if we buy and he isn't getting into our midfield with BRs style of play. He will be another Sammy without the cult following. Forced out and it will break his heart.
