    Going ahead into January and next summer where do you think we need to strengthen ?

    What do you expect the budget to be after selling dembele for 20m at end of last window?

    Any specific targets ?

    I would like to see us sign a RB , possibly Roberts permanently and maybe a 3rd striker.

    GK, CBx2 RB, CM and ST

    Probably LW too if Sinclair doesn’t get his act together. Loads of work to be done

    We probably won’t, and shouldn’t, spend a penny before we ship out the dross:

    Hayes
    Bitton
    Allan
    Gamboa
    Lustig
    Eboue
    Arzani
    Christie
    Hendry
    Boyata
    Compper
    Benyu (* happened to him?)

    Plus sort loans for
    Aitchison
    Henderson
    And any other promising kids, loads of whom we waste every year.

    We really need a goalie, right back and at least one centre back, just like the last 8 windows...
    Experienced New striker for backup now we sold Moussa would be good too, but pipe dream *.

    If were not away from the pack by January i expect us to just buy the league again probably spend at least another 10m if its anywhere near close ..too important imo and we need to get Cl place next season again.

    Window is MASSIVE!! After the * storm that was the Summer window, BR, The Board etc need to get this one right. I think maybe 5 players may leave - Boyata, DeVries, Allan, Compper, Eboue.

    We will 100% need at least 1 centre half in. Possibly look at a right back and a striker.

    Have next to no faith, expected a big window last Jan after the soundbites coming from Rodgers.

    A (perm) CB or two been needed since the day he walked into the club, a right back been needed since he evidently decided Gamboa wasn't an upgrade on Lustig, Keeper been needed since he decided the wanted a ball playing keeper, top winger needed.

    Talking 2-3 years behind schedule here, to see it all being done in a Jan window would be extremely surprising.

    Keep Congerton and Rodgers as far away from the recruitment in January as possible.


    Still get nightmares thinking they were wanting to spend the best part of £10m on McGinn and McKenna.

    Go out and get a top Scout/DOF just now and let them take over recruitment.

    In order of importance:

    1. CB
    2. RB
    3. CB
    4. ST
    5. GK
    6. LW
    7. CM

    Plus we could easily get rid of 10 to 12 players from our senior squad without having any effect on our match day squad.
    This really needs to be addressed ASAP.
    Too much money being spunked on deadwood wages.

    If there's no DOF incoming/Congerton replacement then i don't hold high hopes for this window, but being optimistic, i would like to see a new RB, a new Striker and a new CB brought in, with guys like De vries, Hendry, Compper, Gamboa and Allan punted. Obviously would like more, but i could potentially see the above happening (which is still optimistic)

    German international, one of the supposed best young wingers in the world among the signings and the best signing turned out to be a young Scot from the Scottish Championship.. It was horrific, huge part of this years shocking start on the continent and domestically.

    I dont think Rodgers would welcome it, feel as if he will feel that while at Celtic someone like himself should have full control.

    The Arzani situation seemed like a little insight, to publicly come out and play dumb felt like it was directed at the board to me. Sure he talked about it early doors as well, about how he wants full control over the footballing side, including transfers.

    He should’ve bought better then.

    It’s past the stage he can demand what happens with transfers. The board obviously feel the same after going out and getting Arzani, Benkovic and Mulumbu.
