I am slightly worried about our signing policy atm. Rodgers says he only wants to add real quality so does this rule us out of getting the next virgil or wanyama. Projects where we don't know if they are real quality but we need to develop them? I feel as if our scouts have found x ammount of players but we are not pushing the button on a lot of them, just a thought.

Well lads, 10 days to go in what as we all know has been a shocking window so far. Very little rumours emerging at the minute, I’m personally worried that we won’t be signing anyone of substance . Maybe a loan, the way it looks at the minute is we will be going into the sevco game with the same centre backs as unless we sign someone like Bruma I doubt Brendan would blood them straight in . As we all know we can’t keep a clean sheet, which will probably mean we need to score at least two against the people . Please Celtic, lift our spirits and give us two decent signings to close of the window to freshen us up 🙏.

If your fear is Rangers2012, then I worry for you. A collection of 11 or twelve new first team players at any club never augers well when they come up any sort of decent team . Add in a man managing a club for the first time, surely to God we will beat that lot . With Ager and Jozo and Hendry our choices for 2 centre back positions I would worry more against other mid table SPL teams.

Guys I keep hearing artificial surfaces cause injury.
But so does grass.
Tynecastle has grass and Berra is out for the season.

I will say I prefer grass but many leagues do use it. Places like Russian and so forth.

Used by thousands of people on a weekly basis in scotland alone. Let the people who enjoy them use them. The people who don't like them stay at home don't use them. Problem solved. Serial moaners in this country!

Aye Kev and how long have they been playing on them over 15 years? didn't hear anyone moaning about the surface at Spartak when Hartley scored that peach of a header.

It's the lack of a too standard that's issue. Plus Scottish teams no watering them correctly before celtic play. That will cause injurys. Think killie said water was broking when they beat us. If watered correctly like most leagues that use them demand then injurys and playing conditions will be substantially better.

20 Aug 2018 23:14:16
You're correct Madyin, if they type of pitches are heavily watered then there's not a problem with them. Seems to be when we come calling they don't see a bit of water and they become similar to trying to play on a piece of tacky rubber. There should be a ruling that refs should make sure pitch is heavily watered at start and half time to ensure safety to players.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Aug 2018 23:33:35
Mally to be honest how often do you hear of a serious injury on one of them?

Over the years we hear of loads of major injuries when studs catch in turf.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Aug 2018 00:25:30
Madyin and Stevie are right it's the preparation or lack of watering that makes the modern artifical pitch so dangerous .

In the good old days the head Groundsman and ( his staff if had any ) took great pride on getting the pitch as good as possible . Sometimes in wet weather the pitch looked like a ploughed field at the end of match . However ground staff did their best and wouldn't have left grass so long that ball could hardly run along the ground and be dangerous.

Whoever we sign, I only hope we get a player or two with a bit of presence and dig as well as ability. If and when we meet power and aggression we are really light -weight in midfield and defense and although Sinclair, Forrest, Rogic, McGregor etc have plenty skill - when allowed to play they are easily outmuscled and weak in the tackle, Not looking to change our philosophy, just need a bit more protection and ball winning as Broony can't do it on his own and he's not getting any younger.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Aug 2018 00:27:08
Player with a bit of dig won't get using that ability at Celtic, as refs will have him carded every time.

Hello Ed have you heard anything of potential new signings? Im worried about the lack of noise coming from us. If we don't sign any defenders we are in trouble. Hopefully this Boyata issue is put to bed soon and we get cash for him and put it back in the team.

{Ed007's Note - I haven't heard anything mate, it's been brutal trying to find out anything this summer.}

It looks like there’s probably been nothing to find out tbf Ed.

{Ed007's Note - There's not even anything about players being watched or clubs/agents being contacted. I did ask Ed002 about Bruma and the answer was:-

"Jeffrey Bruma is available and Crystal Palace and Frankfurt looked at him but nothing happened. Rodgers knows the player well so might be interested."

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Aug 2018 22:12:51
I remember you saying a lot of the inside info had dried up since BR came in, which I suppose is a good thing. I think Bruma is the template of what we should be looking for - physically imposing and no nonsense defending style - but unfortunately guys like him cost good money. I’d have said McKenna was worth going for if we didn’t have Hendry and Ajer already but not now.

{Ed007's Note - Bruma would be a fantastic signing but I can't see there being anything in it. I used to say that Hendry and McKenna were about the same level but - and I hate slagging off young players that are at least giving 100% - I'd maybe offer Hendry in a deal for McKenna. It's a shame to say it but I don't see Hendry ever being accepted by a lot of fans now no matter how he progresses, every single mistake or slack pass is going to be magnified and see the lad crucified.}

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Aug 2018 22:13:25
Fingers crossed on Bruma then boys!

I wouldn’t be surprised to see Chirivella come in, seems strange for him to pull the plug on his Rosenborg deal, we missed out on McGinn, another play Rodgers knows so logically all makes sense.

Never seen him play but he’s got a fancy name, the fans will be buzzing.

Was just reading about the Livingston goalie, Liam Kelly, he says the new artificial surface at Livingston, because it's new, is throwing up loads of little rubber pellets, he says "It gets in your eyes, it gets in your ears and goes up your nose. It gets everywhere."

Surely that is a health hazards, there was that story from a while back about the older artificial surfaces, throwing up carcinogens. if Livingston's new surface is throwing up pellets small enough to get up your nose, it could be also throwing up smaller particles, that you might be breathing in, am not in favour of artificial surfaces.

I've been playing on a 2G surface on a weekly basis for years. 2G level is probably 2 levels below the standard these guys or anyone else in Scotland are playing on and i have never once seen someone injured on it. It also has the pellets and if players are honestly complaining about that they should give up football and go do knitting for godsake. Not saying these pitches should be anywhere near Scotlands top league but i think they get blamed for injuries unfairly. As i said i have never seen anyone injured on them and see that Jozo i'd tell him to man up and play on these surfaces or gtf. Picking and choosing what surfaces to play on he's a young lad! imagine saying to Jock stein i'm no playing the day boss i don't like the surface. don't recall anyone moaning years ago when they were playing on concrete or red clay 😂 absolute wimps these days and too pampered. I do want every pitch in Scotland to be grass just making the point that sometimes its the person not the surface.

Worse post I've seen on here. These are professional athletes playing on plastic pitches, and you are comparing them to you and your mates playing 5s a couple of times a week.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Aug 2018 20:56:01
Hip hip horay happyhoppy great observation can i get a medal for that? Nothing to do with what standard of player i am comparing surfaces actually. Poor little athletes having to play on 5G that must be so difficult 😂.

Artificial surfaces have no place in football non stop whether it be 1G,2G or Honey G.

Where did i mention playing 5s, playing with mates, or playing a couple of times a week. Talk about making things up to suit.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Aug 2018 21:38:32
The fact is though Ice Man they are everywhere. Unless clubs get together and demand they should not be in the top flight then nothing will change.

How many are at Lennoxtown?

20 Aug 2018 21:52:40
I've always preferred to play on grass but don't thing artificial surface causes injury

Tynecastle has grass but Berra in out for the season after his studs caught and he landed awkwardly

Should we complain about grass as well?

The killie one is brutal shouldn't be allowed av played on it terrible surface.

If uv never seen an injury in all the years uv played it must be walking football 😂.

20 Aug 2018 22:00:37
If you honestly don’t think these pitches are causing injuries you are deluded. My son of 8 has started training on one and it coinsided with him getting constant shin splints. They’re a disgrace. I can’t remember the last time I watched an entertaining game on them either.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Aug 2018 22:01:11
Infact who gives a toss about artificial surfaces when a last min goal gets the coupon up. Mane is the man! 😆.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Aug 2018 22:07:53
Deluded because i play on them and have never been injured very good! Infact woman play hockey on the one next to us yet to see any of them injured or complain, and i do like to watch 😂 Steph maybe im no even walking. Stationary ogling 😂

Thats a good point Kev.

Right on cue, Fraser Wishart, supposed "impartial" SPFA union head calls for banning all plastic pitches after one of his team's players gets injured on one. oh dear.

20 Aug 2018 20:34:56
And so he should tim its an embarrassment our top flight has these pitches.
Have u ever seen a good game on them cos i havent.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Aug 2018 21:01:16
And to be fair killies is the worst of them all, sometimes there's that many rubber pellets you would think the pitch was black.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Aug 2018 21:20:38
Plastic pitches shouldn't be allowed in SPFL. No wonder the lot down here in England call it a pub league it's embarrassing seeing a game on the tele with a plastic pitch just makes it look on par with the Irish league.

Anyone understand why the board is not backing a manager who has 2x a treble going for 3x3 and having to cut costs everywhere. I would like to see a few leave personally:

Marvin Compper
Nir Bitton
Kouassi Eboue
Jonny Hayes (Out on Loan)
Dorus de Vries

If we do why we can't go for the follow:

QPR Grant Hall about 1-2m
Swansea Mike van der Hoorn 2.5m
No Club Jack Rodwell
Some one else worth a shout Samir Nasri

These are a few that could be picked up not smashing the bank in the process. Really we need better!

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Aug 2018 13:01:18
You've named four players the manager was 'backed' in signing to get rid of. Confusing.

Every player on the outlist is better than the ins

No thanks - scrapping the barrel with them players.

20 Aug 2018 16:57:48
You’re on drugs mate. Jack Rodwell is a complete twit and the worst player in the history of football to ever earn almost 80 grand a week for doing nothing. So says the Mackem mrs. And she’s right.

Agree4 0Disagree

20 Aug 2018 17:51:30
Grant Hall and Rodwell 😂 you on the glue? Rodwell would immediately be the worst centre mid we would have at the club. If you’re thinking for attacking mid Rogic is far better on the ball and Calmac is a far better runner. I’d also be inclined to say that a 50 year old Regi Blinker has better legs than Rodwell.

20 Aug 2018 12:08:47
So BR being at Citeh seems to have gotten the media's attention. He might hust have been watching a game of football/ picking up tips. However I don't think it would be a surprise if he was talking to Pep or club officials or indeed if we signed another player (s) from them. So who would people like to see? I think Foden would make the most sense to fill that John McGinn shaped gap. Would love Diaz too.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Aug 2018 12:31:42
I think it will be Douglas the Brazilian City can't get a work permit for him. I think he will be coming on loan. Just my opinion no facts or anything.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Aug 2018 12:36:18
I’d take an injured De Bruyne ha ha.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Aug 2018 13:40:46
Wouldn't we struggle to get a work permit for Douglas as well?

20 Aug 2018 13:49:20
Does he have a Scottish granny.

Kev Rangers got work permits for the dross they brought in last year.

I think it's easier here to get a work permit mate.

Really? I'd have thought it was same all over UK.
Well could happen then.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Aug 2018 19:41:00
How is it easier here? Surely a work permit is a uk issue not a football issue?

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Aug 2018 22:24:09
Adarabioyo, Diaz, Foden or particularly Garcia but those are wishful thinking and I think Garcia has gone out on loan already.
