Same every window Welshy. People just looking for an excuse to have a pop at the board.
They will go out and celebrate us making history but at same time give the people that helped make it happen no credit at all.
Boards a disgrace and the teams not good enough. Gets tiring listening to that.

Kev83 - did you enjoy the beatings in Europe last year?

I sure as hell didn’t, and if we don’t improve the quality of defenders we have then it will be more of the same

As much as I like Lustig he hasn’t got it anymore as a RB maybe he could move into CB and do a job, I don’t know but we have known since December 2017 that we need better and that’s almost 8 months time to work on getting a player in.

I don’t want like for like signings only improvements and we’ve had plenty of time to get players in. If we don’t qualify for champions league, you can only imagine the adverse comments towards Celtic and it’s lack of action in getting the right players in.

Kev T what I did enjoy was qualifying for Europe football after Xmas which was our target this year. Now we go and build on it.
Do you expect us to go and compete with teams that spend 200 million on ONE player?
Even with van djyk in our team we couldn't compete with that.

I also enjoyed the games against man city, skelping Anderlech away from home, beating zenit and even the performance against Bayern when we were very unlucky to lose.

21 Jul 2018 20:28:56
Well for each game you mentioned there was 2 games that where appalling

Astana, Beer Sheva away

Both games against Rosenborg

Borrussia and Anderlecht at home

PSG twice

What’s the point in getting anywhere in Europe if you don’t strengthen the squad? Zenit beat us 3-0 and could have been more.

All most of us want is to have players signed before we play qualifiers giving them time to settle in and be prepared for a long successful season.

We qualified for the last two Champions Leagues and both times we were drawn against two of the top dozen or so teams in Europe . I don't think we can buy our way to beat these. teams as Brendan, fair play to him, tries to play football no mafter how good the opposition .
We also won back to back trebles ( of course when won they don't count )
Brendan and Board must get somethings right.

21 Jul 2018 21:17:34
No one is saying that we can go into the CL group stage with this defence but the team is overloaded with CB's at the minute and we need to move one or two on first.
Our team right now are more than capable of beating anyone in the qualifiers.

21 Jul 2018 22:23:21
Overloaded with what


We have 5 CB’s. Ajer is learning his trade along with Hendry and Compper has been a complete waste of time and money.

{Ed007's Note - That's 5 players covering 2 positions, add in Lustig, Bitton and even Tierney who has played in a back 3 and that's plenty of players who can play CB.
Supposing Dembele is injured for Wednesday, should we be screaming out for a striker to be signed as well?
Has Brendan, Lawwell and the board let us down by only signing Edouard while LG is injured and now that Demble's carrying a knock?}

21 Jul 2018 23:18:17
Well Ed, we have Forrest and Sinclair that can play up tops if you want to move players from there preferred position

But that defeats the purpose, KT, Lustig and Bitton are not Central defenders.

The top teams in each league have all strengthened maybe Real Madrid haven’t, but we haven’t done anything yet, if anything our squad is weaker.

Edouard is now a permanent player and looks already to be a brilliant player for us but surely we all can see that our defence needs help.

{Ed007's Note - OK. All of a sudden we're talking about players preferred positions while people compare John McGinn to Rogic and McGregor ajd see him as a back up player but want a CB signed while we have an abundance of players that can play CB. Baffling stuff. Wouldn't any CB signed be back up to Ajer and Boyata if he stays?}

22 Jul 2018 00:36:49
how would a signed CB be backup if he is better quality than what we have?

sign better quality and Boyata will be on the bench more like.

{Ed007's Note - Depends who's judging the quality, the manager thinks Boyata is the best CB at the Club so he might want a new CB to replace Ajer. At least it would be a signing though.}

22 Jul 2018 02:07:24
People are quick to praise the board but since Rodgers came in he has always spoke about real quality coming in.

As you rightly point out in certain positions we are abundant in numbers, but certainly not in quality.

Ajer is probably the best out of all of them and he is just a young player very much in his learning phase but with big potential.

so many signings are just bizarre. De Vries, Hayes, Compper, Benyu, Gamboa.

Rodgers has coached players well, but his "own" signings in his period have been poor.

Lots of people support the board going cheaper but look at things clearly you see our more expensive signings under Rodgers - Dembele, Odsonne, Ntcham were all ready to step in.

I know Dembele came cheap but that was technical rules, his actual value was similar to Ntcham and Odsonne but you get my point.

22 Jul 2018 11:35:33
Poor signings. Commper yes, gamba not given chance plays for his country. Benyu one for future loaned. De cries was cover and made Gordon up his game and wee needed cover. Dembele Mitcham Odsonne all startling. . Scott sinclair, Lewis Morgan hopefully see him after his operation. Think hour being harsh re his signings. .
