What is the score with Eric Shevchenko is he just waiting for january and a move.


1.) 16 Nov 2017 16:12:19
He's available for selection this weekend.



21 Aug 2017 19:22:19
I see cape town are saying we have signed Coetzee. no offical announcement.
I will wait until it is announced, after all we still await his arrival in Glasgow and taken a medical.
He still has to agree terms and i will wait till i see him in the green and white.




04 Aug 2017 19:41:10
I see BR is being linked with a Toulouse midfielder harly a position we are short of cover for. I hope someone has got the wromg player and it is Issy Diop real class could be better than VVD.


1.) 04 Aug 2017 20:43:08
Agreed Jonace. We've got a load of midfielders. No need there. Who does Issy Diop play for and how much would he cost?

2.) 04 Aug 2017 21:35:36
But he can play right back, centre half, up front and even in goals so a perfect midfield signing for us!

3.) 05 Aug 2017 04:48:12
Diop plays for Toulouse look him up on Utube a powerhouse with lightning pace 6ft5ins really strong defender, Although you cannot be sure from video he looks a player. As for price who can tell in this market after Neymar eerything is going out the window who wouldhae thought we would pay 4.5 million for a player to sit on the bench.

4.) 05 Aug 2017 09:55:23
Gaffer said no defender coming in.

5.) 05 Aug 2017 18:17:24
Does he have any coaching badges nialH? Sounds like the dug's ;)



04 Jul 2017 18:08:19
I see we are linked with Mario Pasalic from Chelsea. Looks a more athletic, stronger and faster version of Bitton. My only concern is why Chelsea are lettig him go or his two previous clubs AC or Monaco have not made bids for him.


1.) 04 Jul 2017 18:13:33
So is Charly Musonda not a target after all despite all the speculation that talks were at an advanced stage?
Drewzybhoy .

2.) 04 Jul 2017 19:12:06
Does anyone outside of BR and whoever he trusts really know? I'd rather duverne than any of the attacking players to be honest.

3.) 04 Jul 2017 20:39:33
Duverne has ruled out move g this window supposedly.

4.) 05 Jul 2017 18:58:20
Pasalic would be some signing too. Not sure where it would leave Armstrong or Kouassi but add Brown to make up a quartet and McGregor as the plan C for the dept. and that is a half decent midfield.



03 May 2017 13:32:52
I see we are being touted as being interested in Lewis Gibson, I hope we are also looking at Adarabioyo, Renie-Adelade and Dominic Solanki. We could get these players for ery little as their contracts are up.

I was genuinely surprised by last nights performance. It showed a lot more maturity than i thought we were capable of.

Given the age of the team there where a lot of good things to be proud of.

This leaves us in a good place going forward. We may still lose the tie but next season we could progress once more small steps small steps.


1.) 16 Feb 2018 12:14:41
It must have done wonders for their confidence, being able to totally control a pressure game and being rewarded for all their energy, fight and skill, with a tremendous goal.
It also reminds us of what a great manager we have, who - with so many players missing - was able to mastermind/ motivate a victory against one of the most experienced managerial opponents in Europe.



14 Feb 2018 21:44:11
I really feel sorry for BR and the staff tomorrow, any result will be a success
We could go into the game with as many as 7 players under 23

Having watched the CL games of the last two days the gulf is immense
With the money they have spent on their squads is there for all to see

Zenith spent 125 million in the summer what did we spend

Look at the experience in the top teams that cannot be ignored as we go into this match

Even in Scotland this season we have had to play lots of youngsters and that has shown in some performances

Look at the ages of the injured players

Gordon 36
Boyata 27
Armstrong 25
Griffiths 26

That is right down the middle the most important area of the park

Compper would have added a lot of knowledge had he been able to play maybe next season I hope we bring in some more older players next summer to add to the young talent that we already have.




14 Feb 2018 19:25:49
My team for tomorrow, which will not happen. is as follows

Hendry Lusnig Ajer

Macgregor Brown Bitton Teirney

Forrest Sinclair



1.) 14 Feb 2018 19:39:32
If we go 3 at the back we will get murdered down the wings.

2.) 14 Feb 2018 22:47:45
De Vris
Lustig Hendry Ajer Tierney
forest Brown nicham sinclair
Dembele / eduoard Sincy seems to pop up with a goals, lots of options to score goals, all will be revealed. not long guys.



05 Jan 2018 04:05:25
I am worried that BR is suffering from second season syndrome. He is beginning to react to criticism of his signings by defending them no matter what and condemning those others suggest he should have bought.
He is also trying to vindicate any and all tactics employed and shielding those players he likes.
Everyone has to learn from their mistakes and in his first season he was prepared to drop any who did not preform that ruthless streak must return if he is to win in Europe.


1.) 05 Jan 2018 08:49:01
Mibi getting pissed off heating how the likes of signing Dorrans jack and world beater Jamie Murphy are wonderful or mibi he’s doing what good managers do and back there players publicly if he started to slate his players publicly the dressing room would be in uproar and he would be finished. BR is a clever guy.

2.) 05 Jan 2018 11:30:24
Second season syndrome wff? It's not even a thing just a phrase made up to suit some unhappy Liverpool fans after the season they had after the near miss. Jumped on by Sevco fans as they never do anything original. Most of the managers in the prem suffer from first season syndrome if the above is a thing. Still top of the league won a cup in Europe. We all commented on how the team has not been as consistent but we are winning everything so far? Don't fear for BR we have a better manager now than he was when Liverpool got him. Fact. but to come out with what you did is very poor imo. Fickle.

3.) 05 Jan 2018 11:46:47
Don't know where this 2nd season mince comes from ( seed planted by UJ) rodgers 2nd season with liverpool was the closest they have come to winning EPL, need to change it to end of third season syndrome as that's when it started to go downhill.

4.) 05 Jan 2018 13:31:18
Never heard as much drivel since UJ last posted. If this is 2nd season syndrome I"ll take it every season. Healthy lead at top of league, first trophy won, CL qualification and in Europe in February. Think Jonace has been taken in by clowns like UJ and his likes.

5.) 05 Jan 2018 14:01:17
He has conducted himself impeccably since he arrived, amidst sniping from ex-players and 'know-f-all-pundits'about our CL record - even though we are the only club in the country that is in any shape or stature to play in Europe in any shape or form (and have been for many years) .
One poor performance and disappointing result against Sevco had the hun-media foaming at the mouth and hailing Murty The Messiah, but realistically, let's get things into perspective.

BR is in the remarkable situation of winning a treble - undefeated - in his first term, so it was always going to be well nigh impossible to better perfection, or replicate it this season?
We have had a string of injuries and form lapses, all season, but have still managed to lose only one competitive game all season, win (defend) our first trophy, qualify for the EL and stand 8 points clear at the top of the league. Yes, we have not played as well as last season; but that could be down to certain players having 'second season syndrome? '

Hopefully the winter break and transfer window, will refresh, recharge and recover our efforts in 2018 and we can enjoy another season of great football, players on top of their game and more success on and off the pitch.
It's one of the best times in our history so just enjoy it guys.

6.) 05 Jan 2018 17:30:38
imo BR was sold-out by the board. He had a man who was a game changer in Suarez and they let him go.

7.) 05 Jan 2018 18:31:32
So if you describe it as "second season syndrome" What would you describe Delias second season? Our token hun is a wee mod going through a mid life crisis. New manager syndrome will explain McCoist over to you Kenny who passes it onto McCall who drops it and the journey is set back a year! In comes the next England manager in waiting but Warburton is outed as a fraud and resigned (allegedly). In comes the poor man's Mourinho with his amigos.

Sadly he has departed. His sound bites where a joy to behold. Next up is Murty for his second stint. Im sure whoever's next in line will continue the comedy roadshow lurching from one disaster to another!

8.) 05 Jan 2018 18:46:01
This second season syndrome is a real pain in the arse . One domestic defeat in about forty games, still in Europe, won cup already won and 8 pts clear at the top of the table . Is it any wonder the fans are moaning and groaning in the stands when they witness just how far the team has regressed .
The only reason B R will leave us within four years is that he is fed up with the moaning and groaning and abuse by fans of his players .

9.) 06 Jan 2018 09:42:30
He has a big ego so he will be here for 10 in a row and go down in the history books.

10.) 07 Jan 2018 00:44:15
Pud name your three top managers who haven't got a big ego?



30 Dec 2017 14:19:17
There are lots of negative things that could be said about today's game.
However it should be said that teams are finding ways to combat our strengths and certain players are off form or injured.
We should have sold Armstrong and Dembele in the summer and bought Macginn and another striker with more defenders.
BR needs too make big decisions during the break, How to improve and get to the next level without spending big money.


1.) 30 Dec 2017 14:56:34
Tit of a display!

Ntcham is young and yet too develop gie him time. Remember Stilian and Armstong last year, It is a shame Koussi is not fit i thought he was just starting to show what he was capable off reminded me of Wanyama when he first arrived. I am sure BR will pick the best middle to front he can. lt is not the midfield that worries me it is the defence. I would like to see three at the back with Lusnig in there but do you go with Boyata and Simunovic or use Tierney.

That would be fantastic the next big defender can't see it happening but whao! him and Issy Diop and we could win CL.

I watched Kerr and Wardrop on wednesday and they too looked very good and are the same age as Ajer and Adarabioyo, we aslo have MacCart and Kellacher to return in the summer. If we buy someone like St Juste that means we would have 7 players all 19-20 and you cannot play them all. Some would be disallusioned and leave it is a problem that needs careful handling as i think we should be produceing our own players where possible. They are cheaper and stay longer. Shame O'Connell did not work out liked the lad and his attitude hopes he does well whereever he goes.

I said the EPL would not grant him a work permit as he does not meet their qualifing standards. The SPL and scotland would grant a work permit.


{Ed007's Note - I think you need to read up on tne changes that were made to the FA regs in 2015.}

Rubbish he had to rest players The squad is to young, if he is to blame for anything it is buying young talent without enough experienced players to cover injuries.

You cannot see passed McNeil but you have to respect Lennon and Brown for their winning mentality But my favorite was MacStay and had he had a great manager in charge he could have achieved anything. If he had played under Stein, O'Neil or Rogers what could we have done.

Check my posts i have being saying this for two years when he played for St Mirren. I said at the time we should have got him instead of Scott Allen.
