Even a broken clock.....One good game against the huns and that was it
or lack of...Remember thinking after that game even Bolingoli gets pass marks ..but overall this guy has no idea of how to defend and his positional sense of what's coming in behind him continually draws our centre half out to his flank ..his distribution is also poor ...I could go on. I don't think coaching is the problem here ..more to do with ability.
Sorry lad, i think we have seen the "best" of Barkas, we have seen enough. Nowhere near good enough and we cant afford another, trial and error period, to see if he improves. IMO."Celtic have registered their interest In Brighton goalkeeper Mat Ryan, according to reports.
Australian outlet FTBL report that Celtic officially begun talks to sign Ryan this week and are willing to pay between £3-5 million for the goalkeeper.
The 29-year-old has just one year remaining on his contract and spent time on loan at Arsenal last term.
However, it is claimed Mikel Arteta is now looking at other options."
--- outsiders perspective, I think 3-5 million pounds can be spent elsewhere. I think Ange can bring the best out of Barkas and fulfil the role that Ange's goalkeepers usually perform.
Just be nice to get in a signing at this stage Gary.BRISTOL City are ready to pay Oxford United's asking price for Rob Atkinson amid potential competition from Celtic, according to reports.
The Sky Bet Championship side are thought to be willing to spend £1.6million to bring in the U's centre back, says The Sun on Sunday.
But the newspaper also claims Celtic are interested in the 22-year-old, with the Scottish giants in danger of losing defender Kristoffer Ajer.
Atkinson is thought to be one of City's top transfer targets after an impressive breakthrough campaign.
Then we'll be able to sing...

Interesting development Gary.Anthony Ralston given one year contract extension
Let's hope we don't get any more Ntcham style 'buys', you know spend 4.5m then let them go for fuck all cos they down tools and have a year left on their contract, truly was a motherfukker him. The Edouard situation is coming close to that too.Nesbit would cost £3m+, we'll not spend that on anyone this summer. Expecting a massive down sizing operation. Signings will be cheap punts, frees and loan
Were still unsure on what type of system Ange will like to play yet Gary and still no idea as we still got no one in through the door yet.Nesbit would cost £3m+, we'll not spend that on anyone this summer. Expecting a massive down sizing operation. Signings will be cheap punts, frees and loans.
they get more wrong than right"Celtic have made an enquiry about signing Riccieli Eduardo da Silva Junior from F.C. Famalicão, according to a report from Celtic Now and Forever. The report claims that the club have made contact with the price tag of £1m expected to interest Ange Postecoglou, who is looking for a number of defensive recruitments in this transfer window."
Wonder who is actualy handing out the contracts and targeting players i doubt in the time frame that the new fella has went round the bargain basements as quickInteresting development Gary.
Never realised Ralston was still only 22, even so with Jon Jo being so muck last season, I thought Ralston must be totally rank altogether or was it more likely JK wouldn't give him an opportunity?
Surprised he signed for an extra year with JK still in the ranks, so now if he can't make an impression under Ange, I don't believe he ever will for us.
anyone else think they're just going through old targets we looked at ,instead of like any real scoutingLet's hope we don't get any more Ntcham style 'buys', you know spend 4.5m then let them go for fuck all cos they down tools and have a year left on their contract, truly was a motherfukker him. The Edouard situation is coming close to that too.
Or how about signing a 2m 'loan' for a Duffy type deal, and pay his inflated EPL wages!
Aye, great business Mr Lawwell, you made sure you were Paidwell didn't you.
Dom needs to be wee bit more canny. Let
Ange pick his targets, then Dom does the deal.
How many other PL signings have lost money? Plenty.
The guy from Italy was castange a cracking player that brendan took to Leicester he's been a cracking singing for them another one we didnae want to pay the dough for that actually was cheap a la toneyI dont think he has it in him.
Goes all the way back to his hilights when we were all saying "can he defend?" Wasnt one tackle in his reel. Mibi one...
He is able to run like a man possessed, dribbling and having a go. Looks good one in ten times. The other 9 its simple closing of angles or pushing him out a bit and he doesnt have the brain to make the right call. Taylor just shites a brick and squares it or passes back.
If i remember right BR and the scouting had eyes on a lb from italy for about 9m and it wasnt backed.
Boli was the punt.
boli/taylor Both cant cross. Both didnt have a consistent left winger infront of them either. We seemed fixated on LAM and RAMs to do the job. Always want to drift in. Never going to stretch teams that way. With pish fullbacks. We didnt.
For the covid breach. Sorry but this lad set the tone. Whittled the cane we were to be thrashed with for the whole season. He put a target on our backs that we simply couldnt shift.
Dont really care if he is a scapegoat.
He literally had to have a motm performance to get pass marks. Never the type of player to put in consistent 6 or 7s out of 10 if you use that system.
If he cant do that then he isnt first 11.
From what is reported the guy is on 15k a week. Thats higher than a fair chunk of our squad.
Has he ever been better than most of our squad? No.
Terminate his contract.
