I really did enjoy the ajeti interviews

Great english
Good attitude
Answered every question confidently and intelligently

" SEEMS ' like the real deal. There's a wee saying "liking the cut of his gib" or something like that. In Ajeti case I was very impressed indeed

He was very flattering about NL and our sporting director ( hammond? ) And it seems we made a concerted effort to make this happen

I think barkas and ajeti in any " window" would be regarded as reasonably ambitious.

I also heard indirectly via a reasonably connected/ plugged in guy who knows a key member of the executive, that the club is making a bigger effort to spot " quality" that can impact on the first eleven . ie they are genuinely trying to improve the 1st eleven as opposed to 1 to 2 million back ups. They still love the " project" but its nice to see us going that little bit further with more credible targets

Long may it continue

I don't always get a good feeling with just any old signing, but barkas and ajeti look and sound the part and will improve us ( IMVHO)

Are you happy with the 2 in Ed?

{Ed007's Note - I'm delighted with the 3 we've brought in, Lubo, Elyounoussi coming back was a great move and hopefully this time next year we're in a position to make the move permanent.
I was speaking to someone today who told me that the hold up with Ajeti was coming from the West Ham end who were pushing him towards looking for a permanent move and were dragging their heels with Celtic even after Ajeti told WHU that he had agreed to join Celtic and it was up to them to sort out a deal. Celtic were looking at a loan with option to buy but agreed to the permanent move for a lesser fee (approx Β£1 million) than WHU would have received next summer.}

As always ed, love the little bit of extra context and colour you bring

Other than james maclean, what position would you prioritise next and why?

{Ed007's Note - Cheers mate πŸ‘ Following the Bolingoli fiasco we need a new LB in asap and to get him out the door.}

Time will tell but this on the surface looks like a proper bit of good business.
Its not that we haven't spent money but its the calabre of player we where buying.
Klimala and soro. did we actually pay up to 5 million for them. surely not.
Bayo nearly 2 million.
Boli nearly 3 million.
The 2 guys we have bought look first team ready. let's hope for the same for a CH a LB and chuck in a play maker and it could be great window.

Interesting point JJ and ed

Ed, do you mean a LB to displace Taylor or a LB understudy

JJ, its frightening eg? 10m on soro, bayo, boli and klimala . in saying that soro and Klimala might just contribute and make us some money long term. attitudanally at least klimala and soro seem motivated and eager to impress.

{Ed007's Note - Taylor is starting to look more settled in the team and has put in some good performances but I don't think he's ready to play at CL level - if we get there.}

The thing is, someone at PH is spotting potential in players. Moussa, Eddy, Boruc, Julie Anne, Frimpong and others who have come in, developed and went for decent money. I've a feeling that Klimala and Ajeti have been brought in to develop together and that Soro will be Brown's replacement. Having a quintet of Brown, McGregor, Soro, Connell and Robertson fighting for two places is going to be interesting to see develop.

13 Aug 2020 21:08:35
C'mon JJ how can you judge Klimala and Soro and to a certain extent Bayo the first 2 have only had limited game time and looked not too bad. Bayo has just been injury plagued, hopefully he does well out on loan. I"ll give you that clown Bollingoli 🀣.

{Ed007's Note - I'd say Bayo has as much chance of playing for Celtic again as Bolingoli has.}

13 Aug 2020 21:13:59
I would rather we spent 4 or 5 Mill on a player who can/ should improve the first team than sign 5 or 6 1-2 million pound players who will only be back up if they play at all. I don't mind spending 1-2 million on someone young who can improve and will have a long term future and will make us a profit but our priority should always be to improve on what we have at the moment. how much money have wasted on guys like Bolingoli balde bayo and the like. Too much if you ask me. We must have spent close to 15 million over the years on duds when we could have had guys like eddy in and ajeti and even kamala who looks good since he has settled.

13 Aug 2020 21:15:33
I think there's a player in Bayo EdπŸ‘.

{Ed007's Note - What you think doesn't count, Stevie. πŸ˜‹ Haven't we been through this before?}

13 Aug 2020 21:17:15
Exactly otherwise bayo would be a loan . not a loan with option purchase.

13 Aug 2020 21:21:33
Tbf Steve, I didn't judge the players. the point I was trying to make was that potentially we have spent 8 million on 2 player that are going to play most games.
Compare that to the 10 million on players who maybe one day will contribute something.
All I mean its first team ready players that we need not potential.

13 Aug 2020 21:34:19
Don't be redeeculous, there will be no fighting for Browns place, are you insane?, IT IS BROWNS PLACE!

{Ed007's Note - Aindoh you remind me of Karl Pilkington.}

Am going to have to Google that Ed, 😁😬.

{Ed007's Note - He's a moaning faced git as well πŸ˜‹

13 Aug 2020 22:30:59
You're probably right Ed, the wife says that to me too 🀐.

{Ed007's Note - πŸ‘
