If we don’t sign quality first team ready players at RB, LB and LM we will win nothing this season. The negligence and arrogance shown by the board is totally retarded. If this season unravels like many predict PL will need a pair of new balance and a tin hat. Can’t believe we are all this sickened after treble, treble.

The forward planning at the club is nonexistent and we’ve been regressing since last January. Questions need asked at the AGM. Club is a mess from boardroom level to the first 11. Two weeks to sort this mess. Not happening. We’re in for a historically poor season. God bless you all🍀.

Some people are pointing the blame at partiular individuals for this current absolute fiasco. There are only two in my humble opinion, Lennon and Lawwell.

In Lennon's case it's down to the team's he puts on the park, positioning and tactic's, he has at his disposal enough players, decent player's, if played correctly we would have avoided last week's embarrassment.

In Lawwells case there is nothing to mitigate his negligence on the footballing side he only cares about the bottom line of a spreadsheet at the end of each financial year.

IT'S A JOKE, but not a funny one.

I'm not sure what apportion of this mess should be directed to Desmond (I know he loves the club) but no idea as to how much of a day to day interest he takes in the running of the club, don't here or see a lot of him other than turning up for trophies.

I've probably stretched this to far. To anyone annoyed or offended by the above please accept my apologies.

So killie have brought in a 22 year old left back from QPR today on loan.
Sign that Taylor is on the move?

Hope not he’s a left sided Ralston.

Don’t be surprised if Sevco sign Taylor, he was with them as a youth and is probably in their price range .

Would much rather the boy Meling from rosenborg if I’m honest.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Aug 2019 17:23:19
Kev T your tripping the lad is a cracking player levels above Ralston.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Aug 2019 18:02:53
I personally think it’ll come down to the rosenborg result in this last qualifier. If they go out, or get a result tonight which more or less puts them out I think we’ll go for Meling. if they go through I think Meling will stay at rosenborg and we’ll go for the boy from killie. whatever happens this window up until now simply hasn’t been good enough by us . it really is that simple.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Aug 2019 18:51:27
I think Taylor might be more realistic to be honest. As has been said if meling side gets through this round then there is no way he will move.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Aug 2019 19:23:16
We should have had the Meling deal done back in the start of July but the Arrogance of some people at the club has left us with little chance of that going through now There has to be a total rethink of how things progress As it is we are not in the position we should be going into a new season and a manager that we should never have in place at this time.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Aug 2019 19:30:42
No he ain’t.

Aye he is.

Greg Taylor ain’t a cracking player! Decent with potential but to say he’s cracking, Na can’t agree with that! Meling any day of the week over Taylor!

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Aug 2019 20:59:12
I say he is a cracking wee player but as I've said before I don't know if he's ready to walk into our team. Melling has been on my wish list for few years now and he would be my first choice as well.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Aug 2019 22:09:13
All about opinions kev. but think we all agree on melling mate! Would be a great addition and ready to go straight in! Just can’t see it happening if I’m being honest.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Aug 2019 22:14:07
One potential problem with Taylor . he is a self-confessed Sevvie :- ( HH.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Aug 2019 22:44:21
Do we even know we are after Melling or Taylor? No we don’t! I reckon Boli 3 mill that’s it for lb. and don’t see us spending any more than 4 mill tops all together on any players! Spent 10 mill already on two players that’s big money in Scotland . maybe two 2 mill players couple loans that’s it .

So big Ajer is getting a new bumper long term contract. must be getting sold next summer.

Believable4 0Unbelievable

20 Aug 2019 12:26:02
Anybody else like to see Ajer get a run at his natural position CDM? He can tackle, he can carry the baw and as much as we all love Broony his time is running out and plus it would let him get rested which he could do with like everyone else (Y)

Agree3 0Disagree

20 Aug 2019 12:45:43
Yes Jamiebhoy. I think he could be the powerhouse we are looking for in that position.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Aug 2019 12:59:51
It's a no-brainer Jamie; It's only because we have been so short of quality and fit centre backs that he was put there.
He is an all-round talent that should be utilized to the full.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Aug 2019 13:09:49
OAB it was nothing to do with that why Ajer became a CB. The minute Rodgers came in he changed him to CB. Then sent him to killie with the instructions that he must play CB.

Agree2 0Disagree

20 Aug 2019 15:08:06
Only problem is he's our best CB and that would weaken the defence while strengthening the midfield.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Aug 2019 15:11:37
I agree Buster and it was very rare I don't share most of your points of view OaB . I mean if you are a natural at something surely you play it covering back the way from there only gives us more solidity in my opinion (Y)

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Aug 2019 15:30:32
Jamie Ajer played about 4 different positions for start. He even played upfront for a while.
I don't think they had found his best position yet.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Aug 2019 15:34:59
And I think it was mostly attacking midfield he played at start.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Aug 2019 15:39:05
But did prefer to play holding mid.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Aug 2019 16:33:16
Kev any youngster at the age he was could get shunted abouted positions but he captained his Norwegian team as A CDM

I watch the same team as you mate and he was outstanding at Motherwell @ RB and all am saying is he looks a real natural CDM and we are clearly struggling in there at the moment plus our current manager was one himself

Obviously others see what I see and are hoping he gets a wee shot at that berth (Y)

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Aug 2019 17:08:02
Jamie's he was playing attacking midfield and striker in the weeks leading up to the point he moved to Celtic and he was the captain of their 1st team.

I have no doubt he'd do well at CDM but at this moment in time of say it's to much of a risk to take our best defender out the defence.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Aug 2019 18:48:57
Our previous manager was notorious for his 'experimenting' with player positions and done it at Liverpool as well.
He spoiled a brilliant young striker (Miller) by converting him to a LB and now he has totally lost his way and his vocation.
Ajer was originally a midfield player and would be brilliant for us there - as he has shown in every place he has been picked.
I also think Biton should be fully-coached as a CB to allow Ajer to accommodate Ajer - unless we get Wanyama on loan ha ha.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Aug 2019 21:09:54
Could you imagine the uproar if Lennon played ajer at CDM 🤔.

Big Phil on Twitter is running with that story. I was actually going to ask if anyone one here had heard anything similar as I've been told to take his stuff with a large pinch of salt.

Folk seem absolutely desperate for their to be issues, worryingly some of our own fans are lapping it up.

20 Aug 2019 18:53:21
Sounds very similar to last year tbh.
Split dressing room, poor transfer window, the ranjurz are coming and they’re going for 55.
So I’m guessing that means we will get a treble. Ach well.

Jordan Ibe close to loan deal apparently.

Well if the Record rubbishd the story it must be off.
They obviously know what's going on.

20 Aug 2019 13:14:02
Am hearing Taylor in before Thursday they have just signed a LB so that deal will be done soon. Am also hearing the goal keeper Benkovic fae Bournemouth excuse the spelling is on standby could be a late call. If a midfielder is brought in Turnbull will be tried again under the loan agreement they tried before with better guarantees and more money upfront.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Aug 2019 16:35:17
I see Lennon looks like he has finally got rid of Sinclair. Reports saying he has told his agent to look for a new club for him. Shocking treatment of a players who scored plenty of goals for Celtic. He may not have played brilliant all the time but scored plenty of goals. He picks Morgan over Sinclair 😣😣😣.

Believable10 0Unbelievable

19 Aug 2019 16:52:42
i would understand if we had someone in his position tearing it up week in and week out but to have Morgan in front of Sinclair is shocking! I’ve said often enough that Sinclairs form hasn’t been at the level of previous years but even an 80% Sinclair is better than Morgan! Just another baffling decision by lennon!

Agree8 0Disagree

19 Aug 2019 17:13:06
Sinclair should sit tight, suck up the wages and leave on a free next Summer. He has been treated shabbily by the Parkhead bosses.

Agree9 0Disagree

19 Aug 2019 17:21:10
This the same Sinclair who half our fans were absolutely slating the last 2 years?
Oh, aye. So it is 🙃.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Aug 2019 18:07:11
I heard the way his contract was structured now makes him the highest earner in the squad. The board were probably banking on an offer hence activating the final year. Like everything in this close season (and the previous windows) it looks like it might have backfired, unless there's an offer from the continent and now they're stuck with a player on enhanced wages who knows he wasn't wanted.

Decent player in my opinion. Way better than Morgan and should be in the the first 11 before him.

Agree2 0Disagree

19 Aug 2019 19:16:34
Anyone seen the new boy play? There's videos on him from 2 years ago but apart from that. We buying more reserves again? This k we need a right back left back a centre back a midfielder a left mid and a back up striker if bayo doesn't seem to be fitting.

Agree2 0Disagree

19 Aug 2019 19:44:01
Shame it could not be the other way around Sinky getting rid of Lennon.

Agree2 0Disagree

19 Aug 2019 21:04:27
There are rumours that Lennon has had serious fall outs with Brown, Christie and Julian, maybe Sinclair as well, all is not well in the camp, just putting out what’s been Tweeted, The Irish blogger has also got a hold of similar story and says there will be only one winner.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Aug 2019 21:39:57
I heard similar from guy who often hears bits from CP.
He was pretty sure.

Agree2 0Disagree

19 Aug 2019 22:30:29
Seems to be a similar story to that when Lennon was at hibs. Him falling out with Players and Players turning on him. If it's got that bad after a few games God help us if it true we are in serious trouble.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Aug 2019 23:03:03
The Clueless one needs to go, the has got Mogga MK2 written all over it.
We could be out of Europe and playing catch up to that mob by the 2nd of September which is totally unacceptable.

When I am half cut could fall out with whispers in an empty room.

Good chance Sinclair will be here long after Lennon if rumours are true.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Aug 2019 06:19:13
Sinclair scores goals but he’s been absolutely terrible in the last two seasons, struggling to beat a man and if it wasn’t for KT that left flank would have been dead. Lennon clearly sees something in Morgan daily in training that he doesn’t get from Sinclair. Also we are looking at Ibe if reports are right so surly that tells you it all. Christie looked shocking when he first signed but look at the difference now.

Lennon has been in this game for years and to constantly be criticising the mans every decision tho early in the season is a joke, he still hasn’t been able to get his squad rebuild finished. Let’s give him the chance here.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Aug 2019 10:52:43
Why give him more time he has been here since Feb its time for him to go he has Morgan playing all the time when sinky and shved are there he brings on Morgan against the pars when he could have brought Bayo on. There must be a reason why he isn't playing them.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Aug 2019 15:03:14
Sinclair looked better in the first season because other teams at that point didn't know as much about him and didn't constantly double up on him like they did in seasons 2 and 3 of his time here but still managed impressive amounts of goals and assists.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Aug 2019 10:36:02
Looks like we are cost cutting like we done under big Mogga's stint he broke up Strachan's team dismantled a decent group of players all the high earners left. When you look at what's gone out the door this season and what's came in not good enough the manager has been here long enough to know what's needed. Gerard is slowly getting a squad of players together who will challenge us.

I want to see internationals coming in not journeyman types Morgan, Johnston, Boli and ElHammad in fpr a 9 in a row season. Ok Jullien was costly but 4 proven internationals have left ElHammad has 1 cap. It's not rocket science Lenny get your finger out.

Believable4 0Unbelievable

19 Aug 2019 11:25:56
Elhamed would have had a lot more caps if it hadn't have been for a serious car accident.

Agree2 0Disagree

19 Aug 2019 12:06:48
Elhamed has actually looked decent so far.

Agree2 0Disagree

19 Aug 2019 12:08:53
Morgan and Johnston are hardly what I would call a journeymen.

Agree1 0Disagree

19 Aug 2019 12:26:58
Of all the signing so far Elhamed has looked the best by a long way. The guy have been very solid and played well in the games he played.

Agree1 0Disagree

19 Aug 2019 12:35:52
Mjs development will be hindered if we are relying on him as a number 1 pick due to our terrible recruitment policy.
He should be brought in and taken out as required or even a possible loan.
To be fair to him he has come up with important goals this season but he still needs managed properly.

Agree2 0Disagree

19 Aug 2019 12:53:19
Morgan is a journeyman solid performer nothing special 4 clubs in 3 years. Johnston has something. But shouldn't be a first pick nowhere near it. What I was trying to say was those players aren't good enough to be playing League cup games never mind Champions League. This is a 9 in a row year. If you are happy with them on either side of Midfield we are in trouble.

Agree1 0Disagree

19 Aug 2019 13:39:08
We I don't agree with you over elhamed. He looks a bargain.

Agree1 0Disagree

19 Aug 2019 13:42:19
We've never really signed proven internationals, woulb be very pricey in the market and probably don't fancy a crack at the SPFL.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Aug 2019 15:18:59
Elhamed was magic what's going on. he will be fully fit soon so will boli and Jillian little longer. As well as all the other lads Few more training ses to catch up.
We won and kept fighting till the end. I actually thought it should have been a cricket score the actual score line flattered Dunfermline.
Heard one of Dunfermline players say Celtic where luck hahaha who rights there lines. We pounded them constantly and missed sitters there goalie there defence where on top form. Actual crap by there player saying this, we actually run them ragged they where lucky it was not a cricket score. Few more games then I will judge Lenny till after the rangers game. It's not up there any more just another game I struggle to watch as for we broony could have had his face smashed in by Kent only gets few games ban. Shocking. They will do anything apart from football to stop us. THEY HAVE BEEN WARNED
It's only my opinion lads it's another game to me how it's all about how the league ends. Although sevco won on Sunday it was not convincing if fifers had have kept there nerve they could have scored a few. Let's see how the Europa League goes and twice a week games every week. And we wil see who is still standing by Xmas.

Agree1 0Disagree

19 Aug 2019 16:14:18
ELhammad looks tidy nobody can say different however. we have let Tierney Lustig Izzegurri Boyata Commper Benkovic Gamboa and Toljan all go And brought in 3 players who have 1 cap between them that concerns me. We have have less than 2 weeks to bring in players of a good standard. The treatment of Sinclair a player who clearly wants to stay and worn the Hoops with distinction has been treated with little class punted out that's how you lose a dressing room surely they have saved enough off the wage bill I include Weah, Burke the list goes on. We will see in a week or so what the squad will Look like in my opinion we have a disjointed and lightweight very little dig at this point of the season is very poor.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Aug 2019 10:34:45
Some reports saying we might be interested in signing Omar Elab­del­laoui from Olympiakos.
We were linked in January, so who knows?
Between him or Gumny, if we sign either it will (hopefully) resolve our RB issue.
We all seem to want Melling, murmurs that the deal is close but I’ve yet to see any confirmation from the club.
On a side note: would be strange to have 3 Norwegian defenders in our starting lineup if Omar and Melling were to sign!

Believable0 0Unbelievable

19 Aug 2019 11:27:34
Would be adventitious to have 3 from same country. More chance of settling quickly.

Agree1 0Disagree

19 Aug 2019 11:28:42
I don’t see an RB problem. Elhamed looks class so far.
Few mistakes, but so have the rest of the squad.
Desperately need a LB and a CH even if julien comes food. I can see ajer or jozo going in this window.

Agree2 0Disagree

19 Aug 2019 12:17:07
El hamed isn’t the problem mate, it’s the lack of cover if anything happens that’s the problem! No cover for right back no cover for left back! Severely lacking at left wing, Morgan ain’t near good enough and Johnston cannot be counted on to play 50 games a season! Big problems not just at the back for me, it’s all over! I also think we could do with a defensive midfielder brought in!

Agree1 0Disagree

19 Aug 2019 17:29:22
Agree with everything above here really!
I like the look of Elhamed so far myself.
And I’m still hopeful the other lads come good, but if anything we need the cover and tbh I thought Elhamed was going to be that guy. Maybe more of our utility defender.
I’m guessing we won’t know if we get either of the Norwegian lads until after their CL fate is decided.
But what a baptism of fire they could have if they played at ibrokes 😳.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Aug 2019 09:55:36
So we’re now a week on from the shambles of the cluj game, 1 week less of the transfer window and still no sign of players coming in! No left back no right back cover or midfielder! A disgrace is an understatement by the way! Not a hint of being proactive and trying to boost morale for fans and the team! Held in utter contempt by lawell and the rest how are running our club! How many feel he should walk if we fail to do number 9? And take the manager with him! There’s a dark cloud hanging over our great club right now when it should be the exact opposite! Scunnered is putting it mildly!

Brilliant post Danny I feel exactly the same.

19 Aug 2019 15:05:12
It’s actually beyond a joke Tony! We’ve yet again dragged our heels through another transfer window! It’s staggering how inept our transfer dealings are by the way! Like I said a week on from a disastrous result in Europe and not even a hint of some fresh faces to lift what for me after Saturday looks a massively downbeat squad! It’s to good enough by a long shot but the galling this is that the people in ‘charge’ of our club couldn’t give a toss what the fans think!

Agree1 0Disagree

19 Aug 2019 23:09:56
In my opinion, We can't wait until the 9 is gone. To me The Clueless One has 2 weeks to get this sorted. If we get knocked out of the EL and lose at Mordor then he has to go, personally I didn't want him back in the first place even when Rodgers walked.
We desperately need a DOF who will tell Lawwell to stay out of football matters and concentrate on what he does best.
