    This is why we need a solid CB in ASAP who can challenge the two of them for a place.

    Its weird, but probably because he's not a natural centre back, some players are just naturally better in the air and battle for everything up there, it's natural to them, Ajer on the other hand is abysmal at it but he needs to improve that game ASAP if he wants to become a quality centre half.

    Aye, both big lumps but not exactly physically dominant. Ajer in particular is weak as *. They're both tidy, ball playing centre backs who just also happen to be very tall.

    We need a * of a centre half who won't get bullied and is dominant in the air.

    Jullien has shown he can boss strikers. I think he can be like that regularly with the experience..

    Ajer looks like he hasn't got it in him. Big fearty but he'll shout and fist pump away..

    Jullien has, but he's also struggled quite a few times against physical strikers. Being a brute of a defender isn't really his game.

    We could be doing with a Shane Duffy type, albeit not necessarily him.

    I’d happily exchange him for Benkovic who Rodgers clearly doesn’t rate with players like Morgan in front of him ☘️☘️☘️

    I know Dykes done him twice at theirs but he absolutely bitched him at Celtic Park. He definitely has his moments but I remember Curtis Main at Pittodrie on that mental windy day kept elbowing and taking libs but Jullien was terrific..

    Ajer just doesn't have that in him..

    I agree though, I'd like a proper big beast in..

    The boy is decent and that’s it. He frailties are there for all to see, for those that say try him in midfield well, I’m sorry but he has no attributes that would get him a game in our midfield.
    If, and again some will be annoyed, we were offered anything above £4 million I’d break their hand off for that.

    How much is he worth then??? If people think above £10 million they are dreaming, I’d love us to get that but he is nowhere near that good.

    He's worth above 10 mil mate :52: A versatile 22 year old with over 200 appearances, 30 of which are in Europe and also his countries 1st choice centre half and you'd sell him for 4 mil? Id be upset if we got less than 15m for him, he does have noticeable weaknesses but he's young enough and experienced enough to improve on those and to be fair I dont think he's a centre half think he's a 6, in England he'd be getting flogged for 20m+.

    We will easily get over 10 million for Ajer. First choice for us and Norway and only 22.

    Think I said it a while back but he very much looks like a converted midfielder at times. He just doesn't have that aggressive ability to attack the ball in the air that a proper CB does. He has many excellent attributes but defensive awareness and heading ability aren't at the top of that list, which isn't ideal.

    In saying that he is young, has bags of potential & is a first pick international so anything less than 15/20m is out of the question. If we get that and re-invest it in a couple of proper defenders then we're laughing.

    Has an irritating habit of putting his arms around his opponnents chest when a corner is coming in. Hope it doesn't cost us when it counts....

    Would be happy to see him sold this window, get in a centre half who wins headers and is strong. Never seen someone his size so weak and * in the air

    Kris Ajer after the first game of the season folks. 5-1 but he's a dud.

    I wonder sometimes why I swerve Celtic chat on here then I read the last few posts.. I would be the one to get banned if I said what I felt.

    Irony overload.

    I also believe both him and CJ are way too weak in the air when defending crosses/corners.
    We lost most headers yesterday in defense.
