Looking at our potential 352 we seem pretty solid and I would only be looking for a solid lwb to be signed up. If any of the players leave then obviously they need replaced but geniually happy with what we've got.

The issue with this formation is it takes away wingers but it allows two up front. The other issue is that both your wingbacks need to be a major threat, good at beating men, crossing etc. If only we had agathe and tommo in this team.

We have forrest and Pingpong on the right and last game he tried forest on the left while playing the 352 and he played well. I wonder if that's an option going forward. I think Taylor isn't a bad wee player but more suited to fullback than wingback. Forest on the left or yes we could do with a LWB.

Let's hope there's a lb in the pipeline and this will be one if better windows.

Think taylor is very underrated . defending solid . his crossing is more often than not spot on . work rate. teamwork second to none. more assists than ellynoosi. and if ellynoosi and christie in particular hadn't passed up messed up his crosses we could be still in cl.

I would hope that Turnbull will get a decent run in the team sooner rather than later. I really believe this lad has the potential to be a real star. HH.

deep river bhoy, 100% agree. I think Taylor is much better than a lot of folk are saying and thinking. He is totally committed and he's a talented lad. HH.

01 Sep 2020 21:26:13
I'm totally committed but doesn't make me a good player, taylor is nowhere near what we need, got to be slowest player in team and always checks back n plays it back. Big no from me.

01 Sep 2020 21:47:57
Am seeing a totally different player than you, Bagie.

01 Sep 2020 21:48:14
Taylor is a good left sided defender . We will be lucky to sign better unless we pay a very big fee ( for us) . He is hard working and doesn’t risk loosing the ball and setting up the opponents on a counter attack, unless he is confident of getting into position for a cross .

3 5 2 needs great mobility in terms of RWB and LWB, plus the ability for CBs to move right to cover or left to cover. it also requires central mids 1 of 2 ( excluding acm) to provide width to support LWB and RWBs and for me cal mac ( YES ) but Brown no .

For an effective 3 5 2 youd need a

LWB ( a good one in the mould of tierney or agathe ( noting Didier was right side)

And IMVHO, a replacement for Brown. ie Ntcham or a McCarthy type fron palace

The LWB could be Barry Douglas ( leeds ) or joe Bennett.

I prefer bolingoli to taylor tbh. I hope GT proves me wrong but I just don't see him being the big lwb we need playing a 352.

Is there any reason we aren't trying to pursue Hickey the Tim? Seems a no brainer considering his potential. I've not seen him play that much but seems no brainer.

01 Sep 2020 23:28:59
Taylor is not good enough to be celtic no1 LB. decent cover but he can't win any one on ones. his crossing is usually poor. lacks concentration and gives the ball away too much. we need a left back.

02 Sep 2020 00:37:18
Taylor needs to learn to hit the byline and put a cross in. There's potential there but he needs another LB in challenging.

02 Sep 2020 00:41:26
He doesn't always check back and play back that's utter nonsense. and when he does it's to keep the play alive and in our possession . his crosses are almost always into a dangerous area or to a team mate who can't always put them away he makes great runs inside outside and beyond the play dragging players and allowing others to move with ball . he not Tierney but the bhoy is improving all the time never hides and puts in a great shift.

02 Sep 2020 00:51:45
Bagie67, I'm sure he has a good word about you too. HH.

02 Sep 2020 06:31:49
Taylor is a Kilmarnock player. No where near a Celtic LB should be at. Poor going forward.

02 Sep 2020 08:47:27
Have to say that Taylor might be ok in defending but going forward he is poor for me. The amount of time he gets the ball and his first though is to cut it back inside. Out of 10 times he gets the ball he must do it 7 or 8 times. I simply think he doesn't have the pace to get to the by line to get the cross in. For me at the min it's a no but May be and hopefully he might prove my opinion was wrong but on his showing so far l don't think so.

02 Sep 2020 08:52:14
Bayo youve described ellynoosi there. bubs Hua crosses are better than anyone else in the team and as for hitting the bye line ir crosses isn't that's tha wingers job.
