So does anyone think big Boyata is going to sign a new contract or not?
I really hope he does myself like as I think he is about as since world cup he has come on leaps and bounds and can't see us being able sign a replacement as good as him ( CB for 3rd best team in the world )


1.) 16 Dec 2018 01:30:03
He will be away in January.


2.) 16 Dec 2018 04:06:02
I think if he was going to sign a new contract he would have done so long before now. For me he'll either be sold in Jan or away for free in the summer.


3.) 16 Dec 2018 10:10:26
If he doesn't get a decent pre contract offer in January then I think he will look to sign a new deal, but should we be anyone's saftey net?


4.) 16 Dec 2018 17:21:14
I hope he signs a new contract, but I think he might not, a lot of football is about confidence and where your head is at, Boyata has as always been a good centre back, he has never came on leaps and bounds in his football ability, it was just his mind was on other things, he was distracted, Moussa going for big money, and then maybe telling him how much more money he could be on, and blah, blah, whatever, distracted him, am surprised how it's went for Moussa at Lyon, thought he was always a hard working team player, when he was fit, then I think the money distracted him a bit, maybe Boyata will look at Moussa, and think if you have a long career at less money might be better than a few years on big money and then it slips and your career is on a downward spiral along with your salary, but it's Boyats choice, . good luck to him what ever he chooses.

I think last night we started the game to not lose ( playing for a draw ) what gave this away for me was the way we let their defenders have the ball with no pressing at all, whenever they had it at the back we dropped off into our own half and sat back inviting them onto us.
We are nowhere near good enough to play this way at that level as was proved.


1.) 15 Dec 2018 11:14:12
Royjac u press a team like that you get punished I agree tho wee let them dictate the game.


2.) 15 Dec 2018 12:09:19
I don't think it was intentional, they were just a better team than us.

I noticed that as soon as we got the ball, there was at least 1 of their players right on top of us almost immediately to make it difficult for him to move the ball forward as the angles were closed down. However, it was normally 2-3 players closing us down.

The speed at which they closed us down made us nervous, thus causing lots of mistakes that you don't normally see from us domestically.


3.) 15 Dec 2018 13:12:16
Had to admire their work rate and fitness levels. They pressed us every time we had the ball and stopped us playing. Simply another level up from us.


4.) 15 Dec 2018 16:08:23
They were superb and whilst we didnโ€™t play particularly well, that was mainly due to the fact they were better than us. I thought we did ok under the circumstances and theyโ€™ll do the same to a lot of teams. One thing it showed me is that Scott Brown is essential in games like this.


5.) 15 Dec 2018 17:24:57
They are definitely a champions league team they wouldnโ€™t look out of sorts still a lot of work for us to do wee need more quality still silly silly mistakes Beeing made with bad pass backs and loseing the ball in ereas of the park that have danger wrote all over them.


6.) 15 Dec 2018 20:52:25
For me it was the perfect example of complete high pressing. They all pressed collectively and cleverly and made it seem like they had extra players. We started ok being brave enough to quickly beat the high press and then after that definitely sat off them. We could have at least pressed them anytime the entered our half (similar to Borussia who used this effectively against us previously, instead of sitting back as much due to fear of there threat. Regardless amazingly happy we have qualified that's the only thing that will be remembered. Onwards and upwards. hail hail.

I think BR needs to find a formation that best suits the players we have and fast, this is my preferred team for the moment with the players we have.

Gordon

Gamboa Boyata Benkovic KT
Mulumbu Brown
Kouassi
Forrest Eddy
Griff

A bit more solid and bit more balance to the team for me, with 3 defensive/ ball winning midfielder it will offer the defence a bit more protection and also allow Gamboa and KT the chance to get forward and create. Requires a lot of running the channels creating space and overlaps though from the front 3. To many of our midfield are off the boil and should be dropped.


1.) 07 Oct 2018 09:33:57
That formation and line up has 0-0 written all over it๐Ÿ˜ฉ.


2.) 07 Oct 2018 09:37:03
Kouassi?


3.) 07 Oct 2018 10:00:05
Or you could just leave it to the guy who won back to back trebles.


4.) 07 Oct 2018 10:06:16
Bain more than deserves a chance although BR can't see past Gordon.
Ralston and Gamboa are another two that aren't quoted, although everyone can see how much Lustig has deteriorated.
Ntcham has done nothing since scoring the winner against Sevco, while Mulumbu looks keen to impress and the Griff/ Eddy combo needs work.
I would like to see something like this?
With Gordon, Eddy, Izzy, Rogic, Ntcham, Lustig, Johnston in reserve:-

Bain
Gamboa Boyata Benkovic/ Simunovic KT
Forrest Brown Mulumbu McGregor Sinclair
Griffiths.


5.) 07 Oct 2018 10:38:35
Ralston has done nothing to deserve a place any time I've seen him he's been bang average.


6.) 07 Oct 2018 12:48:22
Bit like lustig and gamboa think Hendry is better bet at rb.

Meant to say only if signing permanently, loan deals ( especially from English clubs ) do my nut in.

I said last week after Sudava game we are in dire need of a box to box midfielder someone who can take the ball off the defenders and won't give it away, Mulumbu could definitely be that guy for sure. I know a lot of guys are shouting for defenders, I don't think this is our biggest problem especially in Europe. I've noticed that most of the pressure we come under in European games is when either our defenders can't find a pass as our midfield are not working hard enough to find space or our midfield are getting caught in possession with their backs to goal which will always cause trouble for most teams at that level.
Whilst it may not be the most inspiring signing I do feel he is exactly the type of player we have been crying put for. This guy very rarely gives the ball away and has a fantastic engine.
Just saying like ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ€ HH.

I'd like to see us go for the striker from Red Star Belgrade think his name is Pavkov, big strong and young. If can get for a decent price will be money well spent ๐Ÿ‘Œ.

I disagree Malkybhoy, I think there is not much between Salzburg and Leipzig in a playing sense.
I think Leipzig pay better wages of course.
And if we play to our best level I don't think we are too far off either of them.

Wouldn't take either of them at this moment, we are going to need to invest elsewhere ie, going to need a right back and possibly two centre defenders and a striker over next two windows.
We have plenty talented wingers at the moment.
