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.




17 Apr 2017 21:49:49
Onyekuru is not going to the EPL; he dos not meet the work permit standards so the only people who have a chance of signing him are the Europeans. I still don't believe he will come to us as we don't get involved with auctions.


{Ed007's Note - There's no reason why Henry Onyekuru wouldn't qualify for a work-permit as an exceptional talent the same as Wanyama and Eboue Kouassi.}

1.) 18 Apr 2017 04:51:30
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.}

2.) 18 Apr 2017 13:28:31
Would love us to sign this kid.

Good Morning

Lovely game last night except for the lated goal against, I know Gordon got critised for coming off his line but what other choice did he have.
Bitton lost his man he was not even in the same county. Gogic had the freedom of the park to pick his spot.
I think BR has madean error in not bringing in a CB Kelvin Wilson or Chico Flores on a short term contract or a youngster on loan if the player he wanted was not available.
We have a team that could score against anyone but cannot defend against a pub team


1.) 09 Sep 2017 13:07:32
We really missed the bus on the centre half situation during the last window and although we can deal with shuffling the pack domestically - we could have done with a decent partner for Simunovic until Boyata gets match fit.
Unfortunately I feel much the same about the goalkeeper and although he may get the benefit of the doubt at times, he is still extremely casual, careless and is prone to far too many rushes of blood and a severe near-post weakness.
Fortunately we have some very talented and gifted players in other positions that help compensate for this.

2.) 09 Sep 2017 14:01:14
Why doesn't he play Ajer? Does he just not rate him? Seems the obvious choice with the injuries we have.



30 Aug 2017 18:34:59
Can anyone name any player we have signed in haste at the end of transter window and proved successful, someone will say LG but think of all the flops.


1.) 30 Aug 2017 19:26:21
robbie keane.

2.) 30 Aug 2017 19:30:24
I quite like Guidetti

Started on fire and then scored against inter, then clearly got his head turned by other offers.

3.) 30 Aug 2017 19:36:57

4.) 30 Aug 2017 20:18:44
S orry did I miss something did any of them win anything and did any stay longer than 6 mounths.

5.) 30 Aug 2017 20:43:03
Big jozo and Armstrong signed on last day I Think?

6.) 30 Aug 2017 22:19:38
Bellamy won the Scottish Cup.

7.) 30 Aug 2017 22:51:43
It's not all about winning, some of my favourite memories were as a young bhoy watching Tommy Burns team n they never won much.

8.) 30 Aug 2017 23:44:14
For all the ones against loan deals, think of all the ones that have been signed on contracts, who turned out to be flops, why this desperation to throw money away?, unless you have 200million or what ever, to spend on Neyamer (who, by the way, I think will flop at psg, ) , i. e. money is meaningless to you, you are much better taking someone on loan, to make sure you are getting your money's worth, don't listen to all the hype, PSG are there for the taking, Bayern are a different story but PSG are just a collection of overated, overhyped, overpaid, want to be's, wish they weres, will never be's mixed in with a few genuine talents, who are paid so much money now, they are scared, if they break s fingernail, PSG are there for the taking.

fraser forster.

10.) 31 Aug 2017 02:40:17
Henrik signed only a few days before league season started. He was alright for a last minute signing.

11.) 31 Aug 2017 07:28:40
I see Juventus took someone on loan yesterday - so a useful tool for all.



27 Aug 2017 03:34:43
I am worried that BR is starting to show a lack of respect for Scottish football. He seems to believe tht he can play anyone in any position and we will win.
Yesterday he choose players who had played in a CL and completed a long tiring journey from Kasakstan.
Again we played with a makeshift defence
It was not until the second half when we changed things that new eneregy and speed of passing brought results
I also noted that we again went to a back three as we did in Astana and Rosenberg when things got tough

This might be the way forward for every game. But to do this we need at least one new CB probably two
We could use Lusnig and Teirney wide against CL opposition with Three large CBs behind them Brown and Ntcham in front and the speed and skill of Sinclair/ Hayes Grifiths/ Dembele Forrest/ Roberts up front in 3/ 4/ 3 formation at home in scotland the middle 4 could include
Armstong Macgregor or Rogic with others dropping out.


1.) 27 Aug 2017 06:26:50
I agree with your thinking on the way we could choose to set up. I like the fact we are versatile. BR has spoken about wanting a small squad, and players who can play a number of positions. For having been in a bit of a crisis, we've done well to qualify for the CL proper and in time the league will take care of itself.

2.) 27 Aug 2017 07:16:27
No disrespect at all, boyata, Jozo, Erik not fit so we need to improvise and it's worked yesterday we lacked that wee spark in the first hour. However they only scored because Gordon tried to be clever! We still hit woodwork a few times and on another day we would have won. The panic on here is madness.

3.) 27 Aug 2017 09:58:44
Totally agree, it's unbelievable to see the panic on here. When we have a fully fit squad there will be no issue in the SPL. However if we don't get a couple of good quality players in the masses will not be happy and rightly so!

4.) 27 Aug 2017 10:34:06
Thought yesterday our defensive frailties was clear for all to see, button want to play wee daft passes in the box, and spends to much time on the ball, and lustig at times has moments of madness, my opinion is we need to buy a couple of good centre halfs, and get shot of jozo boyata etc as they are too injury prone.
On the other hand st johnstone set up very well and didn't allow us anytime on the ball, and I would play Armstrong before ntcham and mcgregor before Forrest but just views.

5.) 27 Aug 2017 11:00:01
When you have a small squad whether it's versatile or not you are one a couple of injuries or suspension to key players away from a makeshift team which has got to catch up with you eventually, we have got away with it so far but the last 2 games must serve as a warning . Brendan you have 4 days to sort out that defence and get another striker in .

6.) 27 Aug 2017 11:18:40
Was about to say the same Memaself, thought the saints done their homework and closed us down very quickly, yet we still got a draw, not bad for a team with a makeshift defence.

7.) 27 Aug 2017 14:13:23
I had a wee gut feeling about yesterday as it has happened to us quite a few times at the same stage of previous seasons. - Long journey - or recovery after a vital CL game and playing a 'form team' who are on a wee run.
Obviously we are still struggling with defensive problems (including cocky Craig) and it took a while to shake things up, but we could have won with a bit more luck.
However at Celtic two games in a row without a win is verging on a crisis, the way we have been spoilt with BR.



23 Aug 2017 20:09:50
How about Benfica, Sevilla and Anderlect.

Lisbon, Seville and Brussels nice little days out.

But none of this will matter unless we get an experienced centre back. We will score against any team Barca, Real, Bayern and PSG included but we need better defenders.


1.) 23 Aug 2017 20:23:21
Looking at it now I'd like Spartan Moscow, Dortmund and Anderlecht. All beatable at home and the Germans a trip to an incredible atmosphere. And Brussels would be overran with Tims. We'd come second and pump Chelski in the last 16.

2.) 23 Aug 2017 20:23:25
Think you would be lucky to get that with the amount of Spanish German Italian and English teams. With them having to be split up from their own nations.

Looking forward to the draw regardless!

3.) 23 Aug 2017 21:18:21
Heed up though DB.

4.) 24 Aug 2017 01:20:21
I will settle for any club apart from Chelsea. Their fans are bad enough and no doubt vile unionist huns will rampage alongside them.

5.) 24 Aug 2017 11:11:04
Well said Pud. Agree with you there. Keep those scum as far away from parkhead as possible. It would be the closes the huns would get to a champions league match if we did get Chelsea.



10 Aug 2017 19:05:09
Any chance of Boyata or Dembele being fit for Astana home or away.


1.) 10 Aug 2017 20:23:55
I would expect not. But then if I was picking a full strength team for Astana both would be on the bench.

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.

It shows faith in the club the management and the future everyone said that top players would leave this summer and no doubt there will be speculation in Jqnuary and next summer. But if the manager stays i think most players will stay.

My team would be

De Vries
Ralston Ajer Bitton Miller
Roberts Henderson Armstrong Sinclair

Let me explain do not risk players who looked tired or have have troble on Plastic truf. Let Roberts and Dembele' play as long as possible before being subbed

So Gordon, Lusnig and Simunovic no chance of injury

Tierney Brown, Ntcham and Forrest to get some rest as with Rogic as he travelled half way around the world

Armstrong who is coming into form as Captain and get some game time as with Macgregor. Edouard could come on for Dembele'
