    Step up on Bitton and may allow us to get rid of Duffy. Would bring him in if possible.

    It’s a bit of a “I’ll try to curry favour with that lot in Glasgow so I can pint this no Hoper back up”.

    If we’re going back for ones who left, I would be going for Van Dijk & Kieran before the others, & I include Craig Gordon in the others. :34:

    A loan deal for a player, who I recall spent more time on the bench/injury table than on the park.
    Used by a manager who will deem him not match fit for at least 8 weeks, to play in a season where we have * all to play for.

    Smart idea Celtic.
    I am sure this loan deal and waste of money (not Benkovic fault who I do like) will work wonders for any potential new manager next year when he needs a settled backline.

    Well at least we know what we're getting with him.

    He is a decent centre half, but is a bit injury prone which is a worry.

    A decent enough deal to cover for Julien.

    I liked him when he was here. Thought he was our best CB comfortably.

    I agree that it’s underwhelming being linked with players who have already played for the club but it just proves the theory that our recruitment & scouting system is extremely poor.

    However I do think he would be a good signing and partner for Ajer. He’d be comfortable in a 2 and 3 as well which is a bonus.

    We need to sign 2 CBs in my opinion and if we can cut Duffy’s loan then great. Ajer, Jullien, Benkovic and Gallagher would be a good 4 to choose from.

    Is this really the best we can come up with? A guy that's barely kicked a ball since his last loan spell with us.

    We're a * shambles.

    This is a very underwhelming rumour, tbh. He clearly has some talent, based on what we saw from him in the hoops, but the issue is his injury record. I haven't seen him play since he left us but the stats aren't promising. Only 10 games for Bristol City and just 1 for Cardiff this season. Whether he's been missing through injury or just not being picked, it's not promising.

    What will it take for our club to invest decent money in a decent squad. This penny pinching and missing out on players because we wont pay the going rate i.e. McGinn is a complete and utter embarrassment. We should have had proven top quality players with a good pedigree in the door at the tail end of the 9 campaign to blow the huns away but as usual we have * it. The board only care about lining their own pockets and as usual it is the fans who suffer. Wanks...

    Cant believe people happy with a guy who cant get a game for Cardiff City. We are spiraling downhill rapid, this is a Willo Flood type signing.
