    Oh no the clubs a shambles no doubt. Knowing KT was out until October we could have easily signed Perraud

    Supposedly offered him to Bordeaux.

    Hopefully in a swap deal for a defender.

    Our "cheap * penny pinching board" actively offering players to other clubs at a loss? Aye, right.

    I haven't seen anything stating that yet. Glad it's not true really think Ntcham may be important this season.

    To be fair he has looked good so far this season. If he plays at or near his best and stays this season that would be massive for us.

    Plus we lack decent numbers in midfield really. When you look at the back ups to first choice 3.

    First Choice​

    Brown, McGregor
    Christie

    Back Ups

    Bitton, Ntcham
    Rogic

    3rd Choices

    Kouassi, Connell
    Henderson
    There is quite a rapid decrease in ability. Especially from back nps to 3rd Choice. 2 bad injuries (1 will most likely be Rogic) and we would be struggling in Europe.

    Remarkable what a turn of form and attitude can have. For a good season and a half I've always thought we should sell, yet now because of the situation we find ourselves, along with his performances, we can't really afford to let him go.

    Id wait and see how his attitude is from now.
    Is he the sort of player that can be relied upon when the going gets tough. Now will be a test of his mettle.

    It’s up to Lennon to get that out of him. Rodgers couldn’t do it, Lennon is meant to be a better man manger.

    I think his attitude and application have been exemplary recently despite the team being extremely dis-organised in general.

    We have all said it since the winter window of 2018! We where walking into this and we have all been proven right.

    Then when you factor in the * Lennon has been spouting it * you off!

    Good point. My issue with N'tcham is that if he's mentally switched off before and lost interest, then he can (will) do it again. It's unprofessional and these sorts of players shouldn't be near the club.

    Lenny obviously rates him highly and believes he is very talented player. He is right to think that but it is a mistake to rely on Ntcham and build a team around him. He cannot be relied upon, he is a moody * who only plays when he feels like it, you cannot put your faith in him. I dont doubt his talent but we are in for a real scrap for the League this season and Ntcham doesnt come across as someone who can be relied upon to fight for 9 in a row.

    When we go to Ibrox on Sept 1st there is just as much chance of Ntcham hiding and not fancying it than there is of him having a good game. Would you want someone like that in your team?

    Exactly what I think. He's been found wanting in the last 2 games at Ibrox. He's trying harder now to get a move - if that move doesn't happen he'll go back to the lazy, can't be arsed player we've seen before. I wouldn't have him near the team at Ibrox.
