I never understand how The Rangers get grips on quality players like Mexer from Rennes but we struggle to sign any form of defender? Hed be a huge improvement on Simunovic.

ED do you expect us to bring in a lot of players this summer?

Players leaving or returning to there respective club: Izzy, DDV, Gamboa, Allan, Commper? Gordon? Toljan, Boyata, Lustig, Benkovic, Mulumbu? Weah, Burke, Bayo? Hendry?

Players on Loan: We will see Shved come in from his loan and I am excited to see him in future. Perez and Gutman are they any better than Calvin Miller or Ralston? Benyu will probably leave also. Connor Hazard, should he be back up to Bain or will he go out on Loan again?

A lot of work to be done. Basically left with no defence. going to be a difficult summer for us.

{Ed007's Note - I don't think we'll bring in a lot of players and hopefully there's more leaving than coming in. I'd be surprised to see Lustig leave.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Never mind talking about players coming in and just yet until manager comes in is there any updates on that EDs?

{Ed007's Note - Nope.}

I have this horrible feeling more and more each day that we aren’t going to reach the ten.

07 May 2019 12:14:53
Calm down Ken. We'll get 12 I reckon 😊.

07 May 2019 12:34:01
KenLikeEh we won't if players like Gary Hooper are ones we are linked with.

Worrying if you don't see us signing many players.

Gk - fine with bain and gordon (need to start looking for a new no.1 soon)

RB - lustig (should be our no2) gamboa surplus to requirements, ralston should go on loan for a year. We 100% must buy a fast attacking right back.
CB - Jozo and Ajer will be the main 2. After that we only have Jack Hendry since boyata and benkovic are away. We 100% need 2 new cbs and send hendry away on loan to hibs or aberdeen (if they'll take him)
LB - kt fine with izzy and hayes as back up.

Cm - no issues for next season but look at getting someone in the season after.

Rm - forrest and shved
Amc - rogic and chrisite
Lm - sinky
I reckon we need a lw/ no.10 - i would like to see edouard play lw as his strength is ball at his feet running at cbs. If we discount edouard then i think we are short. Ww still have johnston and arzani so we might get away with it for one more season.

Cf - edouard (although id prefer another striker to help him) . Griff is unreliable now and we shouldn't rely on him being fit. Bayo - unknown.

100% need 2cb and a rb
Would also be nice to get an attacking no10/ winger and another striker.
Would be dissapointed to not see 4 or 5 come in.

07 May 2019 12:34:34
Still Lennon Clarke any other serious contenders?

{Ed007's Note - I don't think Clarke is in the frame for the job. I'm still holding out hope that Lennon is being lined up to be No.2 to a foreigner but I think that's all it is, hope. So far there's been no concrete realistic rumours and things should move on and become clearer over the next couple of week because either way we need the new man in place asap after the cup final.}

07 May 2019 12:52:15
Always been how we work. Go for the cheap option and cut back on quality every year. Will be the same with the quality of manager coming in. I don't think we need another striker personally and with the emergence of Jozo and Ajer of late they'll probably end up our first choice next season. Could still do with 2 CB and getting rid of Compper. Another RB, LB, LW and box to box midfielder will do. Likely a few of those will be loans again.

07 May 2019 13:31:25
Cocu and NL would be a good choice compared to the other fantasy names being used for bookies to make money. Hopefully the Board have Cocu on their shortlist.

{Ed007's Note - I'd love to see a list of the applications and people who have shown interest we've had as I do think we'd be pleasantly surprised by the level of some of the names. I'd bet there will have been a few that gave Lawwell palpitations when he thought about the budget!}

07 May 2019 14:41:51
I've just got a bad feeling it will be Lennon some of the statements regarding next season he has stated.

Talk of hooper coming back has me worried. It's a huge step backwards, he is not the player we sold to Norwich.

07 May 2019 14:43:15
One Ronny Deila Hayes is out of contract end of season.

{Ed007's Note - Hayes signed a 3-year deal running until summer 2020, Phil.}

07 May 2019 15:09:41
If the new type of manager most of us want does come in we may be in for some serious changes. Obviously PL would be key but SB had a resurgence 3 years ago and maybe the new guy wants more in midfield. Would still play a part but I'd happily go for Calmac and a new version of broony. Also, if someone down south offers 20m for JF, we should bite their hand off. For me, only Calmac, KT, KA and eddy, would be non sellers. Alex Ferguson let his team go to rot because they kept winning for him. He couldn't look beyond his retirement. I'm not saying ditch everyone else, but I believe they can all be bettered with some decent money spent. Just need the right guy to mould a new team that will last 4-5 years. I feel this one isn't going to last.

07 May 2019 16:22:22
The fact Lawwell doesn’t seem like he cares for improvement is a bit of a joke. At this point it’s as if he doesn’t care to better the club. High Calibre players are available on a free, he’s hedging his bets on Izzy again with a new contract.

07 May 2019 16:24:27
With your inside knowledge Ed you must know who's applied!

{Ed007's Note - Aye right 😁

07 May 2019 16:26:37
OneRonnieDeila why do we need a new number one when Scott Bain In 27 domestic games has conceded just 4 goals, that is good enough for me. oldkilly.

07 May 2019 18:51:16
Why does it have to be a foreigner? Hahahaha what?

Just Pedro off the streets of Barcelona rather than Lennon.

Nothing to do with quality just a fancy name please.

07 May 2019 20:24:26
Managers from foreign leagues tend to play more technical football. We’ve been caught out by that a lot in the past few years.

07 May 2019 20:35:50
Tesla369 I think you would rather see us go back the way as long as Lennon was in charge permanently.

Doesn't matter where manager hails from as long as they push us forward. Lennon can't get tactics right, too many games we have scraped by and it will be a huge mistake if he gets job permanently.

{Ed007's Note - Isn't Neil Lennon a foreigner, so it's Pedro off the streets of Barcelona or Lennon off the streets of Lurgan, both from foreign countries?}

this budget thing confuses me at times, these guys at the helm are all good business men and should know how to make money.
We have just made our biggest turnover ever with BR and have 10s of millions in the bank.
As I see it we have 2 choices, we go down the Lennon route at a million a yr for eg whilst not getting a class manager and no kudos and PR out of it.

Or we can get a class manager for say3-4 mill a year and he brings in the kudos, PR, season ticket sales, and players hopefully and CL and money ofcourse.
The 2nd option whilst no garauntee we have a much better chance of success and making the money, BR just proved that.

I don't see it as a speculate to accumulate thing, its just a good sound business model and allows us to grow and become more like an Ajax. Someone asked me the other day if Celtic lost 40m to a fraud like the accies did would we go under, simple answer is no so now is the time. BTW ed any idea what Wenger doing nowadays.
BTW ed and.

Oldkilly - Bain is ok. Don't think he's as good as many people think though. I hope I am wrong. Let's see next season.
