    He couldn’t which is why St Johnstone let him go for pennies.


    If you think Campbell is similar to a young Broony I really don’t know what else to say.

    For sure. He will perform a lot better with Gogo and CalM in the side.

    You could create a great highlights montage of the man but he's so frustrating to watch in an actual game.

    Felt the same about Eddy. I know people will say if he does the buisness that's all that matters but he done it last year and it didn't matter. Needs to improve his overall game.

    Even still there are so many good young midfielders out there at present but we have no proper scouting system.

    Guys like Njegos Petrovic, Patrick Berg, Magnus Kofod Anderson, Finn Ole Becker, Sergi Samper (had an excellent understanding at Vissel Kobe with Kyogo) and Rodney Kongolo to name a few are all players with different attributes that would make them appealing for an Ange midfield.

    All of them are good on the ball, some are more physical (Petrovic and Kongolo) and others are more technical (Samper), the others are more all rounders (Anderson, Berg and Becker). Most if not all of them play in attacking minded systems at their current club and they are all under 24 (except Samper) so would offer sell on value.

    Slowest * I've ever seen in a Celtic jersey. Makes big Majstorovic look like a 100m sprinter.

    No speed at all in that midfield. McCarthy, Rogic and Turnbull. Pretty sure my mum could outrun the 3 of them.

    You can have one "luxury " player in a midfield 3 ( Rogic, as he has the talent and skill to be in there ). This boy is the epitome of everything wrong with us right now. Slow , negative , only plays the easy passes and his awareness is * garbage. Not physical. Will score a few worldies when we are already 3 up ......

    The manager doesn't..

    Ange wants a high energy, pressing midfield with wait for it, Rogic, Turnbull and McCarthy over and over. L O L..

    Then wonders why we've got * no marks like Peter Pawlett and Jason Holt lording it over us in back to back league game's..

    Joker..

    Plays like an asthmatic, crippled 60 year old, who smokes 40 a day. Soooo unfit and slow it’s * pathetic.
    Summed up perfectly when a 42 year old Steve Davis zoomed by him in a foot race.

    A footballer his age shouldn’t be that slow. It baffles me.

    I actually thought he was ok today, but really we need better as for me he isn't ready to be our main attacking midfielder.

    Absolutely no legs. If he couldn't score from distance, he'd be bang average.

    Said months ago on this thread that I didn’t get the hype
    Guy is pish and no someone who’ll get you out a hole
    Looks good in a good team but when chips are down he’s not someone to rely on
    A very poor Stuart armstrong
