Looks like we've got Duffy for a year . Thank the Lord a proper cb that actually enjoys defending with a huge heart and will marshall our backline. goid bit of business let's hope there's a option to buy. and a lb would come in handy as well.

Has it been confirmed yet or is it still paper talk.

31 Aug 2020 08:23:53
Personally think Ajer is on his way out. Is Duffy a better option than Ajer. Not seen much of Duffy?

31 Aug 2020 08:31:41
Some fans have built up this 4th choice Brighton defender into the Messiah. For his sake I hope he doesn't make a mistake in his first game or he'll get destroyed on here.
I can see it already, "He's a donkey", "Thank God he's only here on loan", "Lennon Out" etc. etc. HH.

Assuming it is definite, with what we have now i would go with. Barkas, Julie, Duffy, Ajer, frimpong, calmac, christie, nchamp, forest with Eddie and Ajeti up top.

bestybhoy he will defend its as simple as that he's dropped out the brighton side because graham potter likes to play it out from the back which is a dream for the opposition down there if you watched there games. god knows how many times they got done by it. that's not duffs game i said when we were originally linked fans shouldn't expect him to be strolling out with the ball or spraying 50 yard cross field passes but what he will do is not get bullied win close to all his ariel challenges and get his tackles in. id say he's close to an old fashioned CH as there is and what most supporters think we need mate.

Is this the same guy that scored 2 own goals and got sent off in the same game? Refs up here will love him.

31 Aug 2020 10:02:30
liamlennon, if he was as effective a defender as you seem to think he is then he'd still play an important part where he is. Time will tell with him. I hope he does fantastically well, I'm not saying he's rubbish, my point is that anything less than outstanding and brilliant in every game and he's in for pelters from some people. HH.

{Ed007's Note - Do/did the likes of Fraser Forster, Chris Sutton, Scott Sinclair, Henrik Larsson and many more of our players fall into the category of if they were any good they'd still have played an important part where they were, Besty?}

Ajer is a better footballer than Duffy but not as hard, if Ajer goes we need 2 centre backs and we need a quality left back, personally I’d play Frimpong as a right winger and sign a right back, we missed out on Stephen O’Donnell and could have got Ricardo Rodriguez for just €3m before he signed for Torino Both would have done us a good turn, and another goalkeeper wouldn’t hurt either .

31 Aug 2020 10:32:21
Good post Liam. it's exactly what I've been saying . we are way too soft at the back and from what I've seen of him and it's a fair amount he's a big hard no nonsense defender who won't jump out the way of shots like ajer did on Wed. he's also great attacking the ball at cornered a real goal threat and at 28 jyst hot to h his peak. Hope this gets done.

31 Aug 2020 10:49:42
besty by the sounds of it you will be the first to give him pelters. that's not really the football works is it if you don't start every week then your not worth more or a better player than ones starting. ntcham for us for example when he doesn't start.

31 Aug 2020 10:55:42
Toughness is needed lads it will help Julien and ajer. But in saying that they did great at weekend. Maybe Lenny have them the kicking they need we bit of psychological games going in.
So ajer elhamed Julien Duffy defence if it not paper talk. . I also noticed ajer started to attack and go forward again. As he stopped doing that. Wonder why was he being a baby. Frimpong and Forrest at the sides.

31 Aug 2020 11:05:14
i loved ajers reaction for ajetis goal pure emotion.

31 Aug 2020 11:09:10
I hope Duffy settles in and does a good job; however, I really like Ajer and although he has defensive frailties - he is some player.
IMO he's not in his best position and why he was 'moulded' into a defender, when he can't handle big bruisers or is not particularly strong in the air is up to more knowledgeable people than me; but if he was in our midfield 'pool' with Cal-Mac, Turnbull, Christie, Ntcham or Brown etc; we would have plenty of options and variety.

31 Aug 2020 11:14:52
That guy from Italy sounds like he would be a better buy,

31 Aug 2020 11:15:24
Weeks to late if u ask me! He should have been brought in way before Wednesday to bed in! But typical Celtic, act after we get papped out! If true I hope big Duffy comes in and adds some steel to the back line! Just feels hard to get excited about it right now, after the shambles mideeek!

31 Aug 2020 12:20:02
Duffy will be class alongside Ajer and Jullien and hopefully we get two strikers on the pitch too.

31 Aug 2020 12:52:12
Settle down guys and stop over reacting to a simple comment. I said I hope he does fantastically well if he comes in. I'm simply pointing out that he's not considered to be in the top 3 at Brighton so he isn't the world beater some are hailing him to be. He does have some good qualities but he's no messiah. He'll have my total support and I won't give him pelters, that's for sure, but it'll be interesting to see who does if he ever has a bad game. HH.

31 Aug 2020 13:14:20
Like your post celtic mad put ajer in mid hh.

31 Aug 2020 13:19:08
I think it could be a great mix. Duffy the no nonsense defender in the middle and Julliane and Ajer the two ball playing center halfs either side.

31 Aug 2020 14:50:53
bestybhoy I'm very settled mate. whos hailing him as the messiah by the way?

31 Aug 2020 16:45:21
Exactly my thoughts Markie 👌.

31 Aug 2020 19:10:45
That means playing ajer on left preference him in mid or right hh.
