If anyone can explain the logic in our transfer policy then am all ears and willing to listen.
I think even the manager by coming out and saying he's need 2 for covering S.A. and PR then more on top then saying he's leaving it to the club to sort is a slight bit of frustration on his part.
Not only have we sold players we are 4 down from the WC.
Strange to say the least.

It's not really the clubs fault SA and PR don't want to be here though. That'll ne the frustration.

Jimtim, might be wrong but I don't think you understand the post, we all knew so the manager knew we where going to loose paddy and Armstrong, so why wher the replacements not put in place earlier, jungle John I understand your frustration with the signing policy, I might be proven wrong but a player we loaned out to Aberdeen and a player we signed from St mirren is not good enough if we want to move forward as a club pushing for 10iar and progressing in Europe, everyone can say but we paid out 9m but eddy was here last season so what change/ Impact will that have, the board keep bumping there gumbs about money in the bank and where we are moving, but honestly I would rather have a 4m player than lights and a fancy pitch.

Rant over sorry team it's just my feelings.

I don't think I do understand actually. The window hasn't closed. Just seems like a lack of patience.

Bang on the money JT! Fancy lights don’t have the option to wait and see what other clubs will offer. Transfers take time, unless the players are of a lower standing (see the dozen signings across the city) .

I think the fast-approaching CL qualifiers, players leaving or being touted as leaving and several away on WC duty has folk worried.
The arrival of Morgan and return of Christie are welcome but we knew all along that we would need more CL quality/ class brought in before the window closes and I think this will still happen.
Currently I reckon we still have enough about us to tackle the first qualifier - with a bit more fitness and sharpness to come, but I know BR will be expecting the board to fully back him when required.
Unfortunately we will always find ourselves in this situation, due to the timing of our season, CL qualifiers and the transfer window and the difficulty in dealing with clubs who don't have this handicap.

{Ed007's Note - Our current squad should be more than capable of qualifying for the CL group stages.}

It would be really stupid for Rodgers and Lawwell to spend our transfer chest of say £20m in June when far better value for money and better ability players than players we snapped up become available in mid July onwards .
The only club that rushes in their purchases in June is Rangers2012.& we know the tub of rubbish they always finish up with.

You can only assess a window properly at the end Kev. Some people just don't think about the way it works and the timing of things, how situations change, opportunities open up and others close. Questioning what impact record signing Edouard will have as well. Would that not mean then that actually replacing, or even signing Roberts, would have no impact either? The very thing that nipples are getting twisted. I just didn't read BR's comments as a dig at the board at all.

For the last year everyone new those 2 players wouldn't stay. why have they not been replaced.
We are playing a dangerous game with CL qualifiers coming up.
Just can't understand why year after year we seem to drag this out.
The targets have obviously been identified. Just get them in.

02 Jul 2018 02:51:39
I’m sure there is thousands of players we could have signed, but there is no point unless they are better than what we have, and we have a lot deadwood at the club.

Still think our inactivity in transfer market is down to tactics agreed by Rodgers and Lawell to do with waiting till EPL transfer window closes almost 3 weeks before ours then we can deal with teams in a market not including the over inflated fees being thrown about by EPL. it also will allow EPL teams to move players on not in their squad lists or Loan out their younger players for experience. Players may be more eager to come to us if passed over by other EPL clubs at this time also.

20m chris? Catch yourself on, there's not a chance in hell that lawwell would ever spend that much, keep taking the tablets mate.
