    Priority is 2 CBs as Boyata and Benkovic will be gone either this window or next ( please not fkn McKenna ) 1 striker as the 2 we have are injury prone and a RB as Gamboa isn't getting a look in . We have plenty of options in midfield and wide areas until the end of the season

    Even a couple of CBs on precontracts. If we have Hendry Ajer Boyata Benkovic Commper on the books just now, they might not want 7 CBs. So a coupla guys secured for the summer would still work

    Hopefully Leicester can keep Harry Maguire for another season so we can get Benkovic for a bit longer or even better they sign another CB. I would like to see a lot of our wage bills getting slashed and players getting told to get their arses out the door, there is at least 6 players that should be sold/ let go before we sign anyone else. I mean Scott Allan doesn't even train anymore and still getting paid a wage, and De Vries doesn't even seem to be training anymore as you only see Gordon, Bain and Hazard in the drills. 2 new Centre Backs (1 if Simunovic can get back into gear) and a new RB that can run and get on with Rodgers and I'll be happy with that.

    If that could happen then I would be happy with that . We need to get rid of Compper this window and if Boyata goes aswell we have Hendry Jozzo Ayer and Benkovic until the end of the season which gives me the fear

    Can't come quick enough..

    Gamboa
    Simunovic
    Hayes
    Sinclair

    Can all go..

    Can't wait till we get an upgrade on the keeper and up top as well..

    These fringe boy's are atrocious. Who next, Scotty Allan and Hendry getting a run out at Pittodrie in a couple week's?

    Would punt Hendry before Simunovic..

    We have only one capable winger just now, Forrest..

    Arzani injured, MJ no ready, Morgan no a winger, Hayes substandard and Sinclair patience has almost gone. Need to rectify this in Jan..

    As well as a CB, RB, ST..

    Defence should be the main priority.

    Boyata, Benkovic, Lustig and Gamboa likely off in the summer and Hendry, Compper and Ralston unlikely to make any sort of impact here.

    2 CB and a RB please.

    We also need another winger as Hayes isn’t good enough. Johnston and Morgan probably need a loan.

    A third choice striker would be welcome as well with Griff’s injury record of late.

    Hopefully punt both..

    We'll definitely be in for a winger now that Arzani is out the season and Sinclair is gash..

    Some proper business needing doing in this window..

    Right back. Winger. Striker. Centre half..

    Then there's a keeper which we'll probably leave to the summer and another centre half..

    Aye that’s my thinking one CB and GK left to the summer.. Gordon makes me angry.. no point bringing in two CBs at this point, they would be limited in their game time.

    I'd happily let Bain see out the rest of the season before bringing in a new no.1

    New CB is a priority.

    I'd take a new RB.

    Definitely time to swap Sinclair, I think.

    New striker required too.

    We still need an overhaul, the last 3 windows have been * terrible, the squad baaaadly needs freshening up.

    Say what you want about Ronny but his signings were underrated. Rodgers has been quite lucky that the crop of players he inherited have performed very well for the majority of his time here.

    We dont need anymore central midfielders , OUR strongest area of the team and actually giving arguably our best midfielder in Ntcham a game at left wing just to get in the side , because of the performances by others in there.

    Left Wing,Right Back and if were being honest Striker is still a concern. and needs adressed in january as priority.

    Griffiths hasn't played in weeks, Edouard hasn't been at his best either and both can be unreliable instead of the presence and abilty of Dembele.

    Sinclair looks a lost cause.

    I have no idea who we will sign in January. We are due a good window and the * behind the scenes better be working on it. I'm expecting a good one.

    Priority for me is a new Striker, Right back and Left Winger, would obviously like another CB added but i'd rather sacrifice that until the summer if we can get the other 3 (unless Boyata leaves, then a new CB is our main priority)

    RB and CB are the priorities, followed by a third striker.

    As we’ll probably have Benkovic until the end of the season I’m not too hopeful of a CB. Also not expecting a new RB but I’m sure we are looking at them.
