    Another impressive performance and a real class save in the first half.

    Hopefully Ralph Hasselhoff or whatever his name is doesn't figure this out...

    Just pay them the 15 million or whatever it is and get him signed.

    Having a reliable keeper who is international standard is not something we can find easily. If we have any serious european ambitions then we need a top keeper. Yeah, forwards and class players will always need to be sold to help balance books but they are much easier to replace

    If we lose Eddy & Foster in the summer then we have some major replacements to find and we all know our club will try to do it on the cheap :(

    We won’t pay 15 mill for any player because of the financial model of our club.
    Personally speaking I think we should be pushing the boat out for the likes of Eddy and Frazer. I honestly believe both players love our club, and Eddy has said he loves life in Glasgow.

    Bottom line .....give Eddy especially, what he wants, to sign a greatly improved 4 year contract which, realistically will not be seen out, but will boost the transfer fee we will inevitably receive.

    I don’t believe there’ll be any player resentment, because it has to be evident to everyone in the squad - Broony included, that Eddy is approaching world class as a striker. So it’s time to break the wages cap to allow us, the supporters, to marvel at Eddy’s skills for another 2 years at least. AND we have a much better chance of reaching the ‘holy grail’ of the CL with its big bucks with him onboard.

    PS I know there will be incoming bids for the guy in the summer, but we’re still in the driving seat, as he still has 2 years left on his contract

    I’d pay Frazer and Eddy the wages because they make a huge difference to our results, and ultimately our revenue streams. But don’t get me wrong, the whole first team squad have a case for higher remuneration, because, I believe we are not too far from being an exceptional team, and I mean in European terms.

    End of rant.

    Totally agree with this. I am confident that he will save them.

    Getting him in on a permanent has to be a priority in the summer.

    I feel so confident when he is between the sticks and the players must feel the same.

    We are so, so, much better with him in goal. It is tangible.

    We have to ensure he’s ours next season.

    Big man has made such a difference and saved us on a number of occasions now.

    Actually thought he had a bit of a shocker against Aberdeen, but everyone keepers allowed one a season.

    Must be intimidating stepping up to take a pen against this fella.

    Hopefully Southampton are still daft enough to want rid.

    If we can't afford him we better be scouting for a big replacement.

    A keeper must be top priority.

    We should pay whatever it takes to get him. He is a match winner keeper

    Think some players just belong at certain clubs. Big Fraz belongs here
