Kieran Tierney also who is now one ofthe best left backs in the league. You could have had him for half of what you got for Chilwell and he's a better player. Scottish football is crap but there is the odd diamond in the rough as has proven to have been the case lately so turn your nose up at it at your pearl.

 

You could always go and give Sporting Lisbon £50m again, that worked out really well in the past.

...would have loved to have picked up Tierney!!!

 If I recall was it more a matter of timing, as he wanted the 9 in 9 and was not going to leave until the season was concluded. When Rodgers took over, Chilwell was not going anywhere, so Tierney went to Arsenal and we had missed the boat. If it wasn't for the emergence of JJ, Castagne and Thomas I would still be ruing how we missed out.

ps.

lost a lot of the impact with that typo.......but well said!!!

 

Now how about Demarai and Nacho going to Celtic and Edouard and Karamoko coming here. I know you said Karamoko has slipped down the list so we might be able to give him the environment he needs to get back to where he should be..have a word with Lenny.....you know it makes sense!!!

I wouldn't take Nacho if you paid us to take him lol! I've never rated him. I'd take Gray though, as much as he's poor at EPL level he'd run riot in Scotland. I could see him having a similar impact to what Sinclair had in his first couple of seasons with us.

 

Karamoko you'll be able to pick up for free from now as his conract is up at the end of the season and he ain't signing a new one. He seems to have stalled a good bit the last couple of years both physically and in terms of footballing ability. He played most of our pre-season games and looked very much like a boy playing a man's game. He's still got a way to go before he's close to being ready for first team football even at Scottish level let alone the EPL. That said I doubt playing under Lennon has helped his development much.

...I do imagine Gray playing for Celtic would be ideal for him, but I have a feeling he is not looking to leave the Midlands!!!

 

Can you envisage Rodgers coming in for him in the January window as I can't see that we could pick him up for free because of his age.

  His size was a possibility of becoming a factor and for this to be the reason he fails to achieve is dream is pretty cruel. I still would like to take a chance on him as although he may not grow vertically he will add strength to his physique and operating in midfield is not dominated by height. I suspect he needs to reset and the move will do him good.

  For Celtic I suppose, his progression stalling has cost you a potential £50-60m in revenue.

I was meaning on a pre-contract. You could sign him for free on a free contract now, well next month when he is 18.

 

I don't think we'd ever get that money for any player tbh, even if he came into our side and was amazing. He's defnitely worth taking a punt on but the next couple of years are critical for him. 

 

It's not so much his height it's every aspect of playing a man's game he seems to fall short on at the moment. There is enough raw ability there though to take a chance on, particularly as he'll be a free agent.

Just noticed Stengs, Boadu and Malen are all Raiola clients. You can forget about that @Ric Flair they'll never happen 

Yeah, no chance. Although Stengs and Boadu are having pony seasons so not sure what that does to their next destinations.

How about Silas Wamangituka?

 

 

keeps scoring in the Bundesliga ... and looks very dynamic and strong on the field. But I assume after this season his price tage will skyrocket ... definitely someone to watch

Powerful lad and very good. Like a better Mikael Antonio.

....that ball goes too far away from his feet to be anyway effective in the Premiership!!!

Noticed not many through balls played in to support players and his runs and subsequent lay offs do not lead to openings for his team.

 Got to say a no to this one.

He's just getting spicy because they've had their pants down this year the first time their league's been competitive in a decade.

Seemingly one of Rodger's request is a 'big bastard' given our ineptitude at defending set pieces and scoring off them. I think this is why they like Carmo.

 

Fosu-Mensah is going to leverkusen and Tah has been in and out of the side, wonder whether we'll have another go for him. I don't see the pressing need for a centre half but all the informed noise seems to suggest a centre half and a forward player are the areas we need to improve in.

Operation big bastard is something I can get behind

I would love big bastard upfront. 

 

But can't see that happening.

Big bastard will either be a midfielder or CB for definite, Rodgers is traumatised of target men since seeing Andy Carroll play
