    Was it not stated when jullien was signed that he had been scouted when the rat was in charge ?

    We’ve signed 6 players since January - Bayo, Shved, Connell, Elhamed, Bolingoli and Jullien.

    Only one of them started last night.

    Our recruitment in the last couple of years has been a shambles.

    I would argue the ground has more or less been made up now. And last night was another huge leveller.

    To sign 2 defenders for over 10 million and then sit them on the bench is completely and utterly inexcusable.

    Whether or not that is because they're not match fit or deemed not good enough, both excuses are just as bad as each other. If that's the case then get them match fit (you've had enough time) or sign alternative options for the biggest games of your season.

    You got it spot on here. The thread title can be summed up with this comment. It's shocking!

    Always gonna be the way with Lawell overseeing things. He has his man in place who isn't going to rock the boat and throw his toys out the pram and as much as I thought a director of football would help, that's just another * for Lawell to control.

    The more I think about it can see why Rodgers left. The timing I'll never agree with or understand.

    If we didn't have a really * recruitment policy then we would have no recruitment policy

    I dunno, on paper it looks like we signed the right players but not one of them was played last night.

    Not even sure about that.

    A left back who is actually more of a winger because he’s can’t defend. A right back who is actually more of a centre back.

    Jullien and Connel aye. But one has barely kicked a ball for us despite being here for a month and a half and the other was signed with an eye on the future.

    We’ve yet to improve the team this summer. Which is * criminal.

    It’s all changing next year anyway with the Europa League 2 or whatever it is! Think it’s next year anyway?

    Not get Jullien up to speed has been criminal.

    Maybe we can ask Cluj if they will replay the game on paper ;-)

    Coz playing on grass is proving difficult for this defence

    Out:

    Left back - Tierney and Izzy
    Right back - lustig, Gamboa, toljan
    Centre back - boyata, benkovic, compper.

    In:
    Left back - boli
    Centre back - Julien
    Right back - elhamed.



    Lost 8, brought in 3.
    A further two are just useless.

    10 players from our defense are either gone, or extremely deemed not good enough, and we have brought in 3 to cover that.

    3.


    Two of which didn't play in the most important game last night.


    So, 1.

    1 * player of a difference from this time last year for that backline. A backline we knew for a year was a shambles and we've went in to that game with one player of a difference.

    They are worse than AEK, that makes it even harder to take.

    You’re looking at it far too simplistically if you can’t see how Rodgers and Congerton take a lot of responsibility for last night.

    That doesn’t absolve Lennon for what was a complete fuckening on a tactical level, but there are structural problems here that go beyond the XI on the pitch and man in the dugout.

    I'd rather have lost like Athens than loosd 4 * goals at * home. * *. Imagine what barca would do to us now? A goal a minute? Mental.
