Assuming Sinclair deal done then I think a creative midfielder and we are set with also a few out.
There is an argument for a GK but CG is decent enough and Fasan is considered good enough by many to step in if needed, so looking like a good window for us.
With a strike force of Sinclair LG MD and PR that will put smiles on our faces I think.
Also it means that the spine of the team has been strengthened which is what any good manager addresses.


1.) 05 Aug 2016 20:21:32
To me a GK is needed badly, also would like a tough tackling no nonsense midfielder brought in.

2.) 05 Aug 2016 21:11:57
Would you trust fasan or even Gordon in a cl game against quality opposition? I think over the next 2 season we need 2 new GK, but buy one now and put Gordon on the bench.

3.) 05 Aug 2016 21:27:17
Got to agree with chris30. Need a CM who isn't afriad to let himself be known. And btw, if not already know. Flamini was released by the Gunners on a free. 32y and still agressive as ever last i saw him.

4.) 05 Aug 2016 21:29:02
I think we get through this tie mate but I've no seen enough a Fasan and tbh I was never Craig Gordon biggest fan he's made a couple really good saves at times but he's prone to a howler at times its just in he's game still a tough one for me to take when you lose an England international goalkeeper ( England's number 1 in my opinion without being biased lol) and replace him way a guy that been out for some long, would like the lad Worm spurs number 2 no sure if it was Rodgers that signed him for Swansea.

5.) 05 Aug 2016 22:21:56
Rodgers said he wanted another CF i don't know whether that's still the case or not! But I'd love a GK and CM who can take a game by the scruff of the neck!

6.) 05 Aug 2016 23:19:06
Couldn't agree more with chris30 and shugmckie, a hard tackling ball winning midfielder. Flamini wouldn't be the worst shout. There after I think we need a commanding goalie, Gordon is a half decent shot stopper, however is not commanding.

7.) 06 Aug 2016 03:00:34
Bring back the Holy Goalie ;)

8.) 06 Aug 2016 07:12:07
I rather we got an up and coming someone, don't know anything about Sinclair, apart from what I've read, but his career seems to be going in opposite direction.

9.) 06 Aug 2016 08:22:53
the holy goalie was hot and cold also. Remember Begovic goal blunder he was on the other end. Countless times he fluffed it at Celtic also. What about Logan Bailly he was a decent enough keeper I though over Fasan.

10.) 06 Aug 2016 10:16:36
A GK is THE priority now.

It may not be popular but I can't help but be impressed with Shay Logan, always consistent and never seems to have a bad game.


1.) 18 Mar 2017 17:12:41
No for me ray got to look higher than him plus he's a nob.

2.) 18 Mar 2017 16:59:24
Nope not for me, don't rate him and he looks a rite f@nny!

3.) 18 Mar 2017 19:39:20
He's consistently good for Aberdeen but he's not the type of player we need to take us up a level. Plus a lot of our fans seem to dislike him after the Tonev incident.

4.) 18 Mar 2017 21:01:43
Is shay Logan only a knob because he supposedly got racially abused, or is there another reason?

5.) 18 Mar 2017 21:47:33
id taks him aswell rayman boys no a bad player at all.

{Ed007's Note - So sign a 29 year old mediocre RB and then what? Sell Lustig who has just signed a new 2 year deal or sell Gamboa who is 2 years younger than - and a far better player than - Logan who's not even been here a year?
Tony Ralston in the Development squad is pushing for a first team chance and there's also Sam Wardrop and Josh Kerr who I'd rather give a chance than sign Logan.
The only player in Scottish football we should be thinking of signing is John McGinn from Hibs.}

6.) 18 Mar 2017 23:06:13
Agree with the McGinn comment from 007 thought we should have taken him when he left st Mirren remember him being a standout player for them and gave Scot Brown a torrid time have not seen him play for Hibs though.

{Ed007's Note - My mate that scouts for Accies has watched him a lot more than me over the years and said the same as you, D, we should have signed him from St Mirren. I've only watched a few Hibs games this season but he always looks the part and works his socks off.
I know that's still Championship level but we would - and have - happily send our youngsters to Hibs on loan so why not take a punt on him? He'd fit into that wee 'clique' of young Scots besides the likes of Tierney, Armstrong, Henderson, McGregor even Forrest and he would be more than capable of playing in any domestic games for us.}

7.) 18 Mar 2017 23:11:28
We still have Janko on the books as well, but doesn't seem to be featuring much for Barnsley.

{Ed007's Note - I forgot about him! I can't seeing him having any future with us but he's still only 21 and got a couple of years on his contract. Maybe a move to Nottingham Forest for a couple of million? ;)

8.) 19 Mar 2017 08:51:02
Only player I would have from Scotland is patterson from hearts.
I rate him.
Good defender and is dangerous going forward. Reminds me of Lustig and I think he will develop into a right good player if his next move is the right one.

9.) 19 Mar 2017 10:20:23
Agree witb ed the bhoy ralston could turn out a player for us if he's given a chance and my opinion of logan is purely based on ability and character nothing to do with the racist comments but again he's a knob.

10.) 19 Mar 2017 17:10:43
Don't think I would sign Logan just like the look of him didn't realise he's 29.
Just think we need an improvement on Lustig.
If u look at the left hand side KT is always backing Sinky up ad overlapping and are a good partnership and this is our best attacking option.

Right hand side while Lustig is a good defender he seems to let Forrest go and not back him up, there is very little interplay between them.
Just think a more athletic younger right back might be needed.



12 Mar 2017 17:31:48
Not got much to say about today really apart from well done Craig Gordon.




08 Mar 2017 17:15:20
Wud be interesting to know your thoughts guys on the Arsenal game last night where Konscielny is yellow carded by the ref and then red carded for same incident.
I wudnt have thought a ref could do that as he clearly seen the incident and wudnt need advised by other officials.
The ref already made his decision and it didn't look a red.
Can u imagine that happening on sunday lol.
Incidentally ed, what are the eds down south saying about a 10-2 gubbing, if that had been us the English would be making a laffing stock of us.


{Ed007's Note - They found it pretty funny too, none of them are Arsenal supporters.}

1.) 08 Mar 2017 20:41:21
I thought the way the rules had changed meant if you gave away a penalty you wouldn't b sent off as well, unless it was completely deliberate or violent conduct.

2.) 08 Mar 2017 23:41:34
Rayman, did you hear Martin keown giving it all how it should have been a penalty? Never a penalty in a million years, u can't seriously give penalties where u win the ball first n catch a man, even slightly secondly.
Keown I can't take, awful player n all I ever remember of him was that bouncing about in ruuds face against united n barging him, clown. His pain was evident as the goals flowed haha.

So much for the greatest league in the world, 10 2 was a complete embarrassment for the so called footballing team from England, albeit pep is trying, we were more than a match for them, to get city playing that so called Barcelona football.



01 Mar 2017 22:50:16
Fantastic performance tonight in what is traditionally our most difficult away game.
Going forward we definitely have a rare opportunity to get a real good team.
We totally dominate games now and have no real challenge.
To improve I think the left hand side is as good as it gets with Sinky and KT, but the right hand side is weak in my opinion as we must attack 3,4,5 times down the left compared to the right.
As much as I like Lustig I think a right sided player to the quality of Sinky and a more athletic right back and we would be some team.
To be greedy a new NO 10 to the quality of Rogic with better fitness and we would be where we would want to be.
Not winning CL yet lol but giving it a good fight and possibly Europa cup semis or final.
Crazy thing is it wudnt cost much I think similar value with right hand side would cost 6-7m, and a NO 10 would cost 4-5m so within our budget.
In BR we trust.


1.) 01 Mar 2017 23:47:53
A bit harsh on Lustig, but he is a veteran in our flanks and I'd maybe like to see him moving into the centre of defence (where we have so many good options lol) . With Roberts and Forrest I think we're decent on the right, but without either it shows.

2.) 02 Mar 2017 09:01:29
Agree with Cavalcanti. Although KT clearly has more of an engine than Lustig, the man in front makes a difference too.



07 Feb 2017 20:16:54
Wondered about your opinion about the worst ref decision you ever saw since we have seen some howlers recently.

Mine is the Mottram 1 where I think Dundee Utd scored, hit the stansion came out and a Thistle player picked the ball up as he assumed a goal (obv) and gave it to his keeper and Mottram said play on lol. Couldn't make it up but its true and I sure many will remember it.

What's yours guys?

Incidentally did Mottram ever give his reasoning for this?


1.) 07 Feb 2017 20:38:38
The Doyle incident where ref was hit with ball has to be the worst.

2.) 07 Feb 2017 22:04:57
too many to choose from.

3.) 07 Feb 2017 22:08:16
Remember it well at the match that day pure accident. Refs pride hurt only reason Johnny sent off.

4.) 07 Feb 2017 22:52:02
Not going to be a popular choice but I remember being astounded when gasgoine was booked for returning the refs yellow card that he dropped, pretending to book the referee.

5.) 07 Feb 2017 23:05:21
Paddy Connolly was the scorer of that "Goal" rayman as I remember! Incredible decision.

6.) 08 Feb 2017 00:46:02
Syme sending off the Shepherd instead of judas.

7.) 08 Feb 2017 19:35:29
AG I Remember the Gazza one. ridiculous decision and ref should have been pulled up. Football is part of the entertainment industry and Gazza, even in wrong colours, was entertaining in his day.

8.) 09 Feb 2017 11:08:55
The thumbs down brigade are having a good night. C'mon, at least say why you don't agree.

Its too easy to say he would have done this or that, the fact is he didn't.
He was never a goalscorer and people are forgetting the sitters he missed.

Point is simple ed, SA or SJ its SA for me all day long.
SJ didn't play CAM all that often it was a makeshift postion for him just like it is for SA.
SJ for me is a DM player like he is for his country.


{Ed007's Note - This is just pointless, try actually watching games.}

He hasn't ed its a slightly different role tho same as SJ who didn't play it either.
Both play similar but its Armstrong for me all day long.


{Ed007's Note - So where did Johansen play in Ronny Deila's 4-2-3-1? You're comparing players that play in different positions, Armstrong is nothing to do with it and I've explained why - this is up there with people that want to play Tierney at LW.
I really can't see the point you're trying to make.
Celtic playing 4-2-3-1 with Brown and Armstrong as the 2, with Johansen playing as CAM role COULD have potentially been better than having to play 4-3-3 with Bitton in beside Brown and Armstrong. I think Johansen's energy could have been useful and I think Rodgers would have got him back to playing the way he was in his first year and if he did he wouldn't have been any threat to Armstrong's position in the team, Armstrong's competition comes from Bitton, Johansen would have been competing with Rogic for a starting spot.}

01 Mar 2017 19:34:01
No he doesn't ed but he is BR 1st choice in that position when Rogic injured.
SJ for me didn't score enough to play that position (a discussion I had with a few here with the Commons v SJ debate. ) SJ also had the silly habit of making rash challenges and getting booked needlessly.
Armstrong is much more reliable.
I really believe it will be Brown, Armstrong, Eboue. 2 from 3 and BR will buy a No 10.


{Ed007's Note - When has Armstrong played in Rogic's position, in the middle of the attacking 3? People seem to say that yet it's simply not true, Stuart Armstrong is not a CAM and without Rogic we've mostly been playing in a 4-3-3.}



Click To View This Thread

01 Mar 2017 13:53:43
Ed, Armstrong is a better player than SJ.


{Ed007's Note - Armstrong doesn't play as a CAM though. And Johansen would have been a better player than Bitton. Having a midfield 3 of Brown, Johansen, Armstrong would be better than having Bitton in there as has been happening the past couple of matches when we've played more a 4-3-3. Then when we do play 4-2-3-1 Brown and Armstrong are the two anchors and Johansen would have been in the CAM of the 3 seeing as Rogic is out injured again.}

LwDawson nice to see you on here, 1st time is it? I wonder why.
I hope you come on the next time you get a good draw at a difficult venue like Dundee, Motherwell, Accies etc.
At least you know the level you're at in the league that's crap as you put it, and celebrating a draw that puts you further behind 2nd place.
How crap must you be not even being 2nd lol.

ED, that's exactly what my team would be, I said in a previous post that I think LG could easily play the 10 role.
Can u imagine that Sevco defense trying to pick up LG and MD as they constantly go short and long.


{Ed007's Note - That front 4 would tear them apart.}

The reality is CG is a good keeper, but gets pelters on here at times for this and that.
Did u see Neuer at his near post last night, goes with fists instead of full hand which would have prob resulted in tipping over the bar.
If that had been CG?
My point is even the best goalies make mistakes and plenty do esp in the euros last summer.
And what would it cost to replace him as there is no point in replacing him with a weaker goalie a better one would cost 6-8m at a guess so its a no brainer.
