    I am happy with the new additions, a bit of power & pace in the attacking areas. I wouldn't be happy if this is the only signings we make this window, we really need to sign some quality in defence. I'm just hoping that Rodgers found quality through loans & Bayo with not much outlay so he can spend more in defence.

    I don't know what to make of these signings
    £2mill a guy smashing them in in the Slovakian league
    six month loan for a guy can't get into the West Brom team,
    six month loan for a guy who's played 5 games .
    now chasing a couple of young players from america.
    You wouldn't think we have sold about £30 million worth of players this season alone, what the point in selling players for big money only to replace them with another cheap punt we will never improve doing this
    we have 4 players on loan ! Lawwell line about every penny being reinvested in the team is a load of *.still need a gk,rb,2cbs if the guys we have signed are ready to walk into the first team and make a difference

    Nobody had heard of Wanyama , Van Dijk and Dembele but all 3 walked into the team and improved it straight away, best part of 60m in transfers too. Edouard was a loan but again he made an instant impact so i wouldn't be too quick to write off loan signings either wich turned into a permanent transfer our best CH is a loan.

    We just need to strengthen the defense now RB,CB and possibly 1 central midfielder. whether a couple permanent signing or loan. Lustig is done and you would imagine we would need to make a permanent CB signing this window, given the situation wiith Boyata and Benkovic.

    If Hendry and compete have been told they can leave I don’t see is going through 2nd half season with

    Benkovic
    Boyata
    Simunovic
    Ajer

    As the only CB?

    Get Rafinha in at RB yes he may be 33 but plenty of experience at Bayern and can’t see him getting a new contract as it’s up in June .. €3.5mil surely not out of reach

    Not sure on his wage but I can imagine he will be on a fair amount at Bayern , if he was willing to take the cut for regular first team football id be all for it and think he could bring much needed experience going into the European Games we have ahead don’t think he’s finished as of yet still has the ability to help out RB problem

    Wouldn’t say he is over the hill based on his age , Better player all round than our current RB with bags of experience would be a good addition to the team imo

    'Ifs' are hard to quantify, but that one's * massive! There isn't a prayer of him coming to Celtic.

    BR on transfer window: "There will be movement both ways, I would suggest, between now and the end of the window. We've got a big squad. There will be players that naturally will want to go and play. We can hopefully do more business."

    I hate that. I know there's no guarantees but Brendan should be saying "we NEED to do more business." He's either happy with the squad or he's not, clear message to the board that the we are not done yet is what's needed..

    He’s giving the press what they want to hear.


    Tell them nothing is going on.


    Then boom a new player has turned up.
