    I wish we had enough defensive cover to try him in midfield, I just want to see him all over the pitch :giggle1:

    The big man has been outstanding, but i'd much rather we played him at CB, by now the RB position should have been sorted in terms of back up to Elhamed

    Think one of his greatest strengths is the brilliant runs he makes from defence, would playing that position restrict him in that respect ?

    Think they’d be even more effective from deep midfield to be honest mate. Big man can play anywhere really though.

    I think he would be perfect for it bcoz he can burst forward from a more advanced position but he has the physical side to win tackles and break up play but I think he'd also score a lot more than brown supporting the front player's.

    That's actually a great shout. Jullien and Jozo with Ajer in front of them.

    I'd love to see him there as well mate. Just to see how good he is in there..

    Only problem is, he's our best defender..

    I honestly think he'd kill it in the 6 though, massively. Would be putting out fires all day, bullying midfields and starting off moves for fun..

    If we got a right back in this week.....I wouldn't mind seeing Elhamed get a shot in the Broony role either for Sunday..

    Aye mate would be * class in there imo. Even up top as a target man, Chris Sutton style :giggle1: boy could literally play anywhere and be 7/10 minimum.

    Apparently ElHamed can play in there, worth a bash. Broony needs to sit out a few definitely.


    Greg Taylor can play in midefield :fear:

    100% I rate him that highly as well. I'd fancy him top goalscorer in the league if he went up top :giggle1:

    Aye Elhamed is deffo a viable option. Gumny. Meling and moving Elhamed to the 6 and I'd be very happy..

    He's quick. Strong on and off the ball. Comfortable in possession and gives us more dig in the middle as I feel like we've gone a bit soft in there because Broony is coming towards the end....in my opinion..

    As long as it's at Killie then brilliant :fear:

    We would be * nuts to play Ajer at centre mid and stunt his development at centre half.

    The fact he played right through the middle with Start is immaterial. He’s been groomed as a big * off viking no nonsense hard * defender who can play a bit, that’s the path he should stay on. He’ll be world class within a few years.

    Don't think you can just say it's immaterial. He wasn't just a centre mid.....he was a box to box one and captain in his homeland top flight at 16..

    I do think it's a stretch to imagine him being a phenomenal number 6..

    He's been arguably man of the match every game at right back since being moved over ut is never a fullback..

    He's a supremely gifted specimen/athlete and footballer..

    When Hatem comes back, do you think it would be a worthwhile test to replace Broony with Kristoffer and see how he fares? That would leave is as:

    Forster​
    Hatem Simunovic Julien Mbomo
    Ajer McGregor​
    Forrest Christie Johnston
    Freddie​

    With McGregor being the attacking element of the deep-sitting midfield. In a perfect world I'd clone Scott. But Ajer is still learning and already looks like he's been playing professionally for a long time.

    I do tend to agree but are we a better team with Ajer and Jullien with Brown holding or Jullien and Jozo with Ajer holding? The latter I'd say though we haven't seen it of course.

    Really just highlights the fact we need to sign a DM.

    We need someone to be able to step in for Brown, that's an issue that needs resolved. Against St Mirren, St Johnstone and teams of that calibre, there's no reason we can't give him a shot in there with Jozo, Jullien & Bitton able to compete for the two cb positions.

    Rotating him between 2/3 positions can only be a good thing.

    Would be really interesting to see him in the CDM postion to be honest, but as mentioned by a few of you he is our best defender... If we were to get another few decent defenders in then I dont see why not.

    As it became known to the “Championship”, “Zenith” tried to acquire the Norwegian defender “Celtic” Kristoffer Aer , but did not agree on the amount of transfer




    The Scottish club told Zenit its financial requirements, after which the leadership of the Russian club decided to refuse the player’s transfer.



    21-year-old Aer (height - 197 cm) moved to Celtic in the summer of 2016 from the Norwegian Start. Last season, the Norwegian took part in 28 matches of the Scottish national championship (23 - in the first team), in which he did not score with productive actions, received six yellow and one red card. The contract of the football player with the Scottish club is valid until the summer of 2022. In the "Celtic" Aer twice won the championship of Scotland.
