Lol. I've talked to Liverpool fans and Celtic fans recently, they've both stated that recruitment is clearly his weak point, and I don't think they were just being salty. That's even why the Celtic board stopped backing him with transfers.

Oh I've been through this a million times. Opinions aren't facts. Even if you repeat it a thousand times. Look up the meaning of the word "anecdotal".

I'm not saying Rodgers is 100% 50% 25% in transfers. What I'm saying is that you don't know and neither does any body else.

I've followed the day to day goings on of Liverpool and Celtic as well so I'd say I have as good an idea as any other supporter.

Bottom line for me is that we are all just speculating. And that 's what this forum is for. Sorry:) but we all know nothing.

Rodgers has said after his Celtic experience he's now leaving the recruitment to the appropriate team and won't meddle as much as he used to. That team does include Congerton though. I'm a bit nervous for the next few windows as supposedly the last window was still Macia's players. We'll see. At least we've stacked our squad with brilliant young players so a few failed windows won't hurt much, as long as we don't sell any of our starters. 

To be honest we don't know who is what from whom and when. Just need to keep on doing what we did last summer.

Long may it continue weather it be Macia ,Congerton ,Rodgers or Rudkin or the ball boy etc.

That is reassuring to hear. To be honest I'm heavily banking on Rudkin and everyone left behind by Macia to have been the ones all along.

Maybe we are speculating, but the evidence shouldn't be discounted. The fact is that when Rodgers has gotten involved with transfers, the results have been mixed at best. Indeed that's even by his own admission, according to brucey.

Well I'm sure even the best managers at getting transfers have small blemishes, so if you're being pedantic, sure. How about "hit and miss at best"?

Is he our best substitute ever?

 

It's a shame he's not a winger as I think he's better than Perez and Barnes.

 

He just has thr misfortune of being behind 2 of the best midfielders we've ever had in Maddison and Tielemans.

He's exactly the sort of squad player you want. I'd say alongside Choudhury they could both replace a top class player and the team would barely miss a beat. 

 

When BR says he prefers a smaller quality squad these are the sort of squad players he wants, Praet and Choudhury would walk into Arsenal's team tomorrow.

The only way that midfield gets better is if Kante turns out to be Belgian :P

I honestly think he'd improve every single squad in the league and he's unfortunate to have Tielemans and Maddison in such good form ahead of him. He seems physically incapable of giving the ball away. Superb player to bring on, especially today when we looked a bit overexcited after the goals went in and needed someone to calm things down a bit

I was calling for some more cover in midfield after the opener. Dennis comes on and shores us up, then we score shortly after.

 

Again!lol

 

I actually think he could replace any of our midfielders and we would be just as good, if slightly different due to the different skills our players have.

Agree. Tielemans and Praet seem to play really well with each other as we saw a few games ago.

Praet is top class, every time he comes on he makes a difference. The dummy against Newcastle before he chipped it over for vardy was pure class, he makes space for himself and others so easily. Joy to watch

I actually think he could play the right wing (he's performed in similar positions before) and I'd very much like to see him get the chance.

I'm not 100% sure, but when he played on the wing at Anderlecht for a while, i think he came from the left. Maybe an Anderlecht fan can debunk or confirm that. But to be honest, i don't think he's a player to put on the wing. He would never be a true winger, and might not be able to show his full potential in that role. At least not in the role of a classic winger.

He's best suited to the middle. Has brilliant awareness but lacks the pace needed for the wing.
