What is everyone's thoughts on the transfer window.
I think we might do our business later on in the window. when the English one shuts.
Right back.
Centre back.
Defensive mid.
Left sided mid.
Players that walk straight in.
No more projects.

I agree with the players who will walk straight in, but to move forward step by step it should be two major signings a season and trying to keep our best players, I would push for a winger and a right back this year,

02 Jun 2018 12:39:00
We need a CB a RB and a GK imo. We have the attacking potential in this team, if we can hold it together, but really need to have the foundations to support that. If we were solid at the back then the attacking players can concentrate on penetrating the other end.

{Ed007's Note - This season we conceded the same amount of league goals as we did last year but scored 33 less. We drew 0-0 at home to the likes of Dundee, Kilmarnock, Motherwell and St Johnstone so for me it's more important to look at the lack of creativity in the team, the AM 3 needs an overhaul because with Sinclair's form plummeting Rogic and Forrest failed to step.
There's no point having strikers the calibre of Dembele, Griffiths and hopefully Edouard if there's nobody creating the chances for them.}

02 Jun 2018 13:16:03
Got to agree there I think we're crying out for a creative spark. Jonathan Bamba on a free would really do me. I'd live to see us sign a RB who can get up and down the way Tierney does. Been asking for a GK for a few seasons now and don't think we'll see a new no.1 this summer either. A CB would be a nice little cherry on the top too. I don't think that's too much to ask, 4 signings that improve the team. Hopefully we get them earlier than later though. Not sure what difference the English window shutting earlier makes? Genuine question.

{Ed007's Note - We can still bring in players from England after their window closes on the 9th August, JT.}

02 Jun 2018 13:27:40
I don't disagree with you Ed, however; we will win the league again at a canter and the likliehood of us getting 2-3 AM and 2-3Def isn't going to happen. And if we want to attract the level of AM or any other positions for that matter we need to stop getting an absolute pumping in Europe. We can moan all we want about the financial difference but there are other teams out there not shipping goals like us and that imo will put players off. I think strengthen the back, improve our goals conceded in europe and attract better players.

{Ed007's Note - Would you really say we won the league at a canter, I wouldn't? We win it by only 9 points, only 2 more wins than Aberdeen, we drew one less game than Kilmarnock did, we were outscored by TRIFC and we only won 2 of our games after the split..... has a complacency got into the squad?}

02 Jun 2018 13:26:58
Good point Ed, the service into the box this season has been woeful. Infact the decent service came from Tierney rather than our wingers. Very rarely see goals these days like big JVH used to score and that is definitely down to the service. I know it is a wingers job to run at the defence but sometimes the better option is to just get the ball into the box rather than them fail to get passed the 1st or 2nd man which happened more often than not this season.

{Ed007's Note - We seemed to endlessly pass the ball around 25-30 yards from the opponent's box with seemingly nobody capable of breaking down well organised packed defences.}

02 Jun 2018 14:03:54
Complacency is the key word there. They can and will do better, i have faith in that. So i stand by my at a canter statement and justify it by saying we know the squad is better than how they played a lot of the times. The Rangers games is what will happen when we turn up motivated. However; motivated or not it was peeping through fingers over eyes watching Euro games. I would agree with needing 1 really gifted AM tho. a wee Lubo type of technical ability. That and a strong Defence and GK would transform us.

{Ed007's Note - I think a lot of our league games were worse than peeping through fingers stuff, they were downright garbage. If players can't get motivated to play for the Club, their team-mates and fans in EVERY game they shouldn't be here.
If they approach the CL qualifiers with the same nonchalant attitude and unimaginative style of play that was shown during a lot of league games we won't get near the group stages.
Knowing the team can do better simply isn't good enough, they need to show it every time they pull on that jersey.}

02 Jun 2018 14:34:53
We need a winger that can give sinclair some serious competition, preferably one that can improve our corners n free kicks. Our delivery from corners is pi$h when Griffiths isn't on.

02 Jun 2018 15:18:39
I didn't actually stop to think players could still leave if a window was shut. Ta Ed. Might give us the opportunity to get somebody like a Patrick Roberts in from one of the bigger sides or perhaps even a bit of ready made quality. Not just a cast off though for the sake of it. Let's see how some of the better sides shape up, it might just open up an opportunity.

{Ed007's Note - Definitely, JT. Instead of rushing around on (our) deadline day and seeing what the Pub League have available we will have a couple of weeks to see what's available and others could become available.}

02 Jun 2018 16:22:36
@JimTim, I’ve seen Bamba’s name on a few different sites. Most of them mentioning his familiarity with Ntcham and Moussa. Seems like it could be an excellent piece of business if there actually is interest.

02 Jun 2018 17:11:18
They're all hit whore sites though Kev mate that's the trouble. If I were Congerton though, I'd be making a few phone calls about him. I think it would be a really shrewd move on what I've seen if him. I often look at the free agent list every summer and he's one that stands out for me. Just seems like a good fit.

02 Jun 2018 17:23:02
I’m sure one of the Celtic ones mentioned him but they might have just been reporting on the made up link from elsewhere.

02 Jun 2018 15:06:40
Not like you to roast them Ed? Posters on here have been saying the same for months.

{Ed007's Note - And some were saying it over, and over, and over any chance they got.}

02 Jun 2018 15:11:57
Was the results against sevco because of motivation or because we had more space as they were actively trying to play and not park the bus like other teams do? I agree with Ed007 we need an AM with the vision and ability to play through these packed defenses, in my opinion, we should spend in the AM/ CB/ RB positions Assuming we don't lose any Strikers.

{Ed007's Note - We've got somebody already - Callum McGregor. I;d start him in the CAM role over Rogic all day every day.}

02 Jun 2018 17:03:07
100% agree Ed, creativity was our problem this season, not our defence.

{Ed007's Note - People were quick to pounce on any slight mistake Boyata made to crucify him while up the other end of the park James Forrest is running about like a headless chicken and Rogic is strolling about putting in as much effort as a geriatric sloth and constantly passing the ball sideways.}

02 Jun 2018 19:44:45
Most likely bud. The Dembele/ Ntcham thing could be key though I agree there. To be honest it's probably just another crap link I'm getting carried away with.

02 Jun 2018 20:32:23
We only let teams get as close as we want them to.

02 Jun 2018 21:06:28
Geriatric Sloth 😂😂.

{Ed007's Note - :-D

02 Jun 2018 21:41:27
Fair play Ed about players playing every game to full effort. I agree whole heartedly on that. I think the point i want to make is that IF and WHEN the atracking half turn up they can play some good looking and quick football. But, and this is my opinion which i am entitled to. Our defence, with the obvious exceptions, doesn't have the class i would like to see there.

{Ed007's Note - Have they turned up often enough though when you look at the draws we've had and after watching the slow and laborious gameplay?}

02 Jun 2018 21:44:18
Id also add that i can't recall peeping thru my fingers in the league. Severe dissaspoint and at times disgust. But never cringe worthy fear of Europe.

{Ed007's Note - 2-1 down at Ibrox? 2-2 and Jozo red carded? Hearts 4 Celtic 1? I could go on, Shug.}

02 Jun 2018 23:24:05
Lol. You got me with the hearts one but the Rangers match i was confident on tbh. They were rank rotten in that match.

{Ed007's Note - But we were rank rotten in plenty of games, that's my point, Shug, is guddling by drawing with the teams I've mentioned etc a high enough srandard in Scotland when we should be at a level of looking to improve in Europe?}

05 Jun 2018 23:03:21
Many fans are saying we need to buy a player like Patrick Roberts .
I disagree because although Patrick did well season 16/ 17, he did very little in
Season 17/ 18 . He had two hamstring injuries but effectively missed the whole season.
