    Aye don't get me wrong....I know they'll 100% come after us.....but with Forrest. Edouard. Christie. Johnston.......that should suit us on the counter..

    Can't see us no scoring over there. They'd then need 4. Never happening..

    According to the Swedish guy on the AIK thread thats the way their manager has them playing the whole time.

    Then again they have to score three at least to have any chance of progression, so you might be right.

    Gumny, Meling, and a defensive midfielder or CB in and I'll be relatively happy.

    I know it’s Celtic in Europe but I can’t see any possible way AIK knock us out.

    Hopefully that’s enough to get the cheque book out prior to the return leg.

    I don’t think they were too conservative, I think they set up to stifle us but we didn’t allow the game plan going forward.

    They had 2 up top, trying to isolate both our CB’s who are usually left to their own devices for us when we push forward.

    We never let them go forward with 2 strikers on our 2 centre backs.

    Still maintaining in the morning papers tomorrow he wants 2 or 3 more before window closes.

    Let’s see for me Right back, Left back and another Centre Back are the 3 positions we need to fill.

    Neil Lennon has revealed his identikit perfect player as he chases three new faces before the window closes next Monday.

    Celtic have faced a summer of recruitment struggles but the gaffer is only in the market for players who fit his mould.

    He said: “I look for pace, stamina, enthusiasm and a bit of quality helps too. I don’t want anyone who hides. Bravery is
    important here as well.

    “We need presence, quality and personality on the pitch. We are hoping the ones that have come in can settle and can be a success here.

    We’re still in the market for two or three players.”

    Don’t think he will go with a CDM tbh you have brown, Kouassi, McGregor, Bitton who can all play there where as at CB you only have 3 options and 1 of them has a dodgy knee

    Kouassi will likely be loaned by the end of the window, Brown simply can't play every game..
    We need a big * of a CDM to sit in front of the defense. Would instantly improve us in Europe..

    We deffo need two full backs.

    If there's a third it's a toss up for centre back or defensive midfielder.

    Ironically a player like Victor Wanyama is good enough to start in either position.

    But I guess so is Ajer. With Bitton being a watered down version of big Kris in being able to play both positions.

    The fact we can play both at centre back along with Jullien and Jozo and off course the big Israeli

    But if we were looking to play 3-5-2, a formation that potentially get the best out of Boli then another centre back might rank over defensive midfielder.

    So in my opinion a centre back would consolidate the squad more. But if the right beast became available more so than the right centre back became available I could understand that player being the third signing.

    That's my thinking, but I believe Lennon is looking at another winger over both positions. That boy from Bournmouth rumour hasn't gone away even with his manger playing it down. The fact Lenny isn't giving much game time to Sinclair Shved and Hayes and already showed reluctance to play loaned players last season so question marks over Arzani leans me to believe the wide player would be the third position.

    Yup. Elhamed can be another CB option if we bring another RB in.

    CDM more important.

    He’s basically just describing Wanyama. Come on Pistol, do it for the fans. All will be forgiven

    There is no way we are paying £12m (what Brugge have agreed to pay) for big Vic

    Could get him on loan. No reason why we can’t ask the question. Bruges won’t be paying him the wages Spurs are.

    Don’t think spurs will settle for a loan when they have a sale agreed for £12m as Pochetino said “spurs are not a charity” when asked about Wanyama being played and Availability

    If he rejects Bruges, which he has every right to do, they will happily take us paying half his wages for a season

    Aye they might but even then £50k a week is some amount of cash. £25k if we pay half for a guy who missed all of pre season as much as I would love it I just don’t see it happening.

    A half fit Victor Wanyama is the best player in the country.
