    I really wanted Taylor to succeed but the writing is on the wall that he is a back up at best.

    Adam Nagy is in the last year of his deal with Bristol City. Always liked the look of him for Hungary.

    Again, Berg at Bodo. I'd be targeting both of them for the middle of the park. Ntcham out.

    Based on the positions mentioned in McGowans article in the mail a holding CM worth a look Is Gael Ondoua who is a free agent. He is 6ft1 very strong at holding off players and a strong tackler and with a decent passing range. He is a free as he decided to leave Servette in Switzerland after two good seasons.

    Noticed that big Dudu Dahan has a player on his books a centre back also called Dahan, Ori Dahan 21 year old actually looks quite decent on his videos was thinking if its a relation to him how long before we are linked or in for him :56:

    £5m for a 32 year old who’s scored 19 goals in 55 appearances in the last 2 years? No thanks…

    Not at all, but for a striker of Dost’s type - making runs off the shoulder, etc - pace is crucial, and the fact that he barely hit double figures for one of the biggest sides in the Belgian league might indicate that he’s past it.

    Let’s wait and see if we’re linked with him; see whose view Ange’s is closer to then…

    We need a target man , have done for a while , his overall goal ratio is good , 5m is coppers these days , 32 isn't over the hill , we aren't linked with him I only suggested it.

    Pace crucial for a 6ft 5 striker aye? Lol

    First thing i'd do is replace the goalkeeping coach. I'd look to bring in the coach from the English national team.
    Then the single best signing we could make is Fraser Forster.

    Failing that i'd bring in one experienced and one a bit younger. The main thing is to get someone in who's a bit more intimidating.
    Out of the games i watched over the last week in Europe, this guy stood out as being a possible Forster type player. Someone who doesn't get bullied at corners.

    Some others i looked up:
    https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/beau-reus/profil/spieler/515386
    https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/maduka-okoye/profil/spieler/340353
    https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/joey-houweling/profil/spieler/471797

    I checked up on Okoye and he seemed like someone who'd be really easy to work with.
    So i'd go one experienced, one younger. Two goalies. It is probably also worth bringing in a keeper coach, but i'm not sure the manager has the same plan.
    If he doesn't it's gonna be a case of, can we outscore teams which right now looks unlikely. So we need clean sheets pronto.

    Might be the mistakes can be coached out of Barkas, but he comes across as someone who doesn't want to spoil his good looks, so i'd possibly go looking for the meanest MF i could find. Keepers are difficult to find just now, but i'd be happy with anyone who's got reach, can catch the ball and isn't scared of the ball. Barkas and Bain right now, it's like playing with 10 men.

    You mean Stevie Woods who's been kept on by every manager in the last 10 years?
    Also that England keeper coach who will be on a mental wage, just got to Euro finals, and will probs not fancy moving up to Scotland to randomly work with an Aussie coach and 3 * gks?

    Right ye are.

    Don't agree with your seeking a new goalie coach when we have Woods but the rest is interesting

    Anybody know how much Rooney at St Johnstone would cost? Feel like he should be signed in the interim while we * about. Eventually we can knock him down to backup and hopefully never see Ralston again.

    He has never really been a target man type. Being 6ft 5 makes no difference to that. Ajer is around that height and wasn’t amazing in the air for us.

    He’s always been a penalty-box, run-in-behind striker. Pace is absolutely crucial for that. No need to react so defensively to me disagreeing with your suggestion. Wasn’t like I was calling it stupid. Just said ‘no thanks’.

    Like I said before: wait and see; we won’t end up linked with him. Doesn’t remotely fit Ange’s game.

    You’re really more of a Football Manager fan than a Celtic one, eh?

    Been mentioned before but I'd go all put for the Swedish Keeper Olson linked with him last year and is a top keeper imo
