    Pre-season friendly results never worry me, whenever we do well we always have a * season eg. Mowbray winning the Wembley Cup.

    We need guys in for key positions over the next few days though. If we need to sprinkle a few extra £ on top to speed things up then so be it. The longer we leave it the less likely it becomes of having a semi-settled team in these UCL qualifiers.

    RB, CM and LB in by Friday. Get it done Pedro.

    Shved needs time to adapt to a new team and country. Callum McGregor must be the focal point of our midfield. When brown plays he comes to deep and doesn't move the ball forward quick enough whereas McGregor is much quicker thinking. But for me the full backs need to be better faster and prepared to go beyond the wingers. That in my opinion is where we need to spend real money.

    A bleep test increases in speed as the levels go up, but it is a test of cardio and V02 max, not the ability for a player to get from A to B as quickly as possible.

    Where a fast player might be able to run faster in a shorter time, Brown can most likely do it longer, albeit at a slower pace.

    see this is how you do your transfer business early

    gutman will probably play left back

    theres no chance connel will play against sarajevo i dont even think julian will play

    fucknuts2 has gave us a problem like fucknuts1 last season in our biggest games of the season which always arrive as our first competitive games

    He slows play, it is my opinion. Right or wrong, its just my observation for what its worth.

    Think your seeing what you want to see mate.

    All I’ve seen is people saying he played poorly, which is true.

    If anyone is calling a player pish after a couple of pre season games though then they are imbeciles.

    Not one to read too much into friendlies.... but... that was abysmal.

    No shots on target out with the penalty.

    Forrest is never a CAM.

    Edouard needs someone to play off.

    Need a RB and LB pronto.

    Haha id say he is the best at that role in our squad. But time to look to bring in someone new now in my opinion.
    I used to think he was positionally poor with poor dicipline, but Rodgers really done him wonders and its a real shame BR didnt work with him earlier in his career.

    It is possible this could be the year; but given how often people have been wrong before, I'd be cautious about concluding he's too slow based on a pre-seaon friendly.

    FWIW I think he lost a bit of acceleration last season but not pace. He's still pretty quick. For the moment, his quick brain is making up for the slight loss in acceleration.

    Hopefully he's got one or two more seasons in him. We rely on him so much.

    Is jozo suspended now? Seen a few saying cause of the nature of the tackle could lead to a ban
