    What’s everyone’s starting 11 with the new signings and everyone fit then? Obviously a stab in the dark with a few but just to see what we think?

    Abada - Kyogo - Forrest

    For the moment at least. I still think it is hard and very harsh to leave Forrest out, even if he isnt as good on the left. He is still a key player, for me and we will need his experience.

    Honestly couldn’t pick one just now, Welsh and Ralston don’t deserve to be dropped for starters. Same time don’t want to play Juranovic out of position and don’t know how good Scales or Jota are to put them straight in.

    Assuming they're all at the level we hope/expect. Left back there is the biggest question mark.

    With everyone fit I'd say

    Hart

    Juranovic
    Jullien
    Carter-Vickers
    Scales

    McCarthy
    McGregor
    Turnbull

    Abada
    Kyogo
    Jota

    Right now

    Welsh in instead of Jullien
    I don't think Soro is as bad as made out either and we could be doing with his mobility/tenacity so I'd be inclined right now to stick him in at time's just ahead of McGregor, until McCarthy's up to speed..

    Forrest

    Rotate Rogic and Turnbull and Abada and Forrest. When playing bottom 6 at Celtic Park drop McGregor to DCM and play both Rogic and Turnbull on occasion.

    Given the lack of an energetic CM being brought in we need McCarthy to be able to stay fit and become a big player or Shaw (or another) to step up and prove he can be an asset.

    I would like to see Montgomery given a run at left back, he has a lot to learn defensively in terms of positioning but is natural left sided, seems quite robust from his recent showings has pace and is comfortable on the ball. Out of all the young guys he might be the one to make the breakthrough this year.

    Scales I know nothing about but at 6’4 and left sided if he shows anything he might find himself playing quite regularly at least domestically against lower teams.

    Can't pick a team. Think it will be tinkered week to week. Very little between the 4 centre Half's. Who knows how jullien will come back, ccv could be another level or poor, Welsh and starfelt I reckon will continue to improve. Like the optimism about scales on here but think he has a lot to do to get near the starting 11. As critical as we all are of Taylor he's relatively solid and an international, Montgomery I hope and expect will continue to get plenty mins. Midfield Turnbull needs to kick on in big games. Questions will remain over McCarthy fitness, how long before rogic has a bad game or gets injured? Soro form changes week to week. Last Sunday and the occasion abada didn't turn up shows the importance of Forrest. Kyogo better central but can play left, gg is either gonna be unbelievable or fall below ajeti, (reckon ajeti could come good as he and the team improves), Jota an unknown another player likely to be a star who we will be dying to make permanent next summer or will be thrown onto a plane to Lisbon, Mikey I predicted could break the Tierney fee down the line a few years ago, made of glass really hope he can sort that.

    Ffs Everybody papping Ralston out:56::56::56:

    Maybe we don’t really deserve players like him & some dropping him will be the ones slamming the lack of product from the academy. * chronic.

    if we had bought him in this window from anywhere & he had performed as he has this season he would be a definite starter for any of the flip flop brigade. They would also be demanding a song for him.

    Can’t breathe.

    Not going to lie, never seen Dickers, Jota or Giakoumis play. I've seen Scales play many times and he isn't 1st team ready.

    Juranovic needs to play right back.

    Forrest needs to to start.

    Kyogo needs to play through the middle.

    Starfelt cannot start.

    We need to find a left back on a free transfer.

    McCarthy and Turnball cannot both play at the same time, theyre both too slow.

    Starfelt wasnt terrible last game but he's been shaky for a while and needs dropped, if CCV is fit he goes right in.

    I wouldn't be dropping Ralston yet, he's been excellent this season and doesnt deserve it. I think, as the season goes on Juranovic will eventually be our first choice, but not right away.

    Scales, imo, will surprise people and oust Taylor from LB quickly. Does that mean he'll be good enough to be our first choice going forward? Not so sure, but I think he'll be good enough til January.

    Dont see Jullien regaining his spot unless Welsh's form rapidly declines, albeit his height will be a massive bonus.

    I think the opposite, I think how poor Ralston was before this year is making people overrate him now because of the improvment.

    He's played well but he still does the basics like dribbling and crossing so poorly at times that it's clear he's never going to be our first choice right back. It's a testament to him that he's worked his way to being our backup right back which never looked like it'd be the case before this season, but he's not the answer long term.

    MOTM or serious contender in possibly 4 or 5 games this season incl European games winning & losing.
    That was against his current peers not his historical performances.
    He would have rightly won most improved player as well if they had them in the matches. :fear::fear:

    He's been excellent but we didn't sign Croatia's RB to sit him on the bench. Ange said Ralston needed a hand with the workload.

    Juranovic will make that spot his own in the next few months.

    We also didn’t sign him to wedge him into left back for him to constantly cut onto his right like the other day. The sooner we get him in his natural position the better.
