Andy, its not what i expect the club to do, its what i Expected them to do. We should be strong enough in depth?

Hendry is young and Scottish, can you imagine the uproar if he progresses the way Rodgers expects him to and in a few years moves to the EPL but we didn’t bother paying £1.5m for him when he was at Dundee?

You’re blaming the club but it seems to me Rodgers would be as much to blame as any one. He’s obviously happy enough with what’s he’s got at the back.

7 players who can play CB in our squad but we don't have enough depth?

21 Jul 2018 05:54:45
Are you saying, never mind the quality, feel the depth?

21 Jul 2018 09:03:48
Kev name me the 7 fit players who can play centreback. Bitton been out for months. COMPER never played 2 games in riw since day we signed him. Boyata on holuday which we knew was going to happen. Tierney should not be moved to centre back as it limits our options. He is too important for us on that left side. So by my reckoning we have Ajar, Hendry and Lustig and Simo, who unfortunately is suspended. The issue is that we had exactly the same issue last season. So whilst we can say we are unlucky we knew Comper was a non starter after a month, Simo can't play on plastic pitches, Boyata won't or would not sign a new contract so why are we back in same position?

Plus johnnymac l sure simo is suspended for the first leg after his red card. Have to say kev83 we might have 7 CB listed at the club but how many are actually good enough for European football. Maybe 3? We had this same issue last year and we haven't done anything to fix it. I just hope it doesn't come back to haunt us.

Guys what yous don't seem to get is we can't just buy CB after CB untill you get rid of some.
Johnny the gaffer has switch Teirney inside several times and played him on the left side of a back 3.
Ter 161 you say we had the same issue last year but we won a second treble AND qualified for European football after Xmas.

21 Jul 2018 11:00:29
Lustig won't be available either surely?

21 Jul 2018 11:31:05
Guys we have the same defence as last year, that did ok domestically but was badly shone up in Europe, So we know the majority of defenders we have are not good enough for Europe hence people say we need to sign players.

We need a RB and CB first team level and then loan out or sell the likes of Gamboa, Ralston, Compper and even Simunovic.

21 Jul 2018 11:47:47
Kev T you need people to want to take they player to get rid of them or pay them off.
Who will sign Compper right now?
Or gamboa?

21 Jul 2018 12:45:46
If we can’t sell them free them up to leave, shouldn’t be signing these guys in the first place.

{Ed007's Note - How much do you think that would cost? It's not just a case of freeing players, we would need to pay up the remainder of their contracts and with Simunovic having three years to run it would be complete lunacy.}

21 Jul 2018 13:23:02
Kev T there players all have contracts. They players will be due wages and probably have a load of clauses for bonuses.
Pay them all off would cost a fortune.

21 Jul 2018 13:26:51
Wouldn’t expect Jozo to be freed with teams actually wanting him but Gamboa and Compper could be potentially let go.

{Ed007's Note - Compper's still got two years to go on his deal too and we could prbably get a fee for him as well.}

21 Jul 2018 14:26:47
Jozo could be sold. Gamboa has done ok (just about) and i think we could get a bit of money for him as well. Comper signing has been a disaster. To be fair whom ever is identifying and signing players has not covered themselves in glory. Dembele, n'tcham, EDOUARD, sinclair if he gets back to where he was, is really about it as success goes. Hendry, Hayes, Kouassi, Gamboa, Comper don't do it for me.

{Ed007's Note - I don't understand the grief Hendry gets. He's a young lad that's been here for 6/7 months and is being asked to play out of position. Everybody is so quick to write players off these days and yet Hendry is a far better player than that diddy McKenna at Aberdeen everybody raves about.}
