Agree. Think i'd trust Gerrard's view here.Depressing, would be surprised if we don’t see a signing in the next few days. There is a reason it’s Jacko and Davis or Kamara....
Thankfully we don’t really need him for a week or two, pray he’s back for the EL play off.
Our central midfielders are very different to whatever’s need/utilise.I'm not so sure, although we'd certainly be better having the option of playing him.
I think we're too predictable in MF, especially when we play Jack + Kamara. You could see the immediate improvement Saturday when Glen replaced Jack, likewise Alfie on for Barker.
Jack may be needed when we are under pressure, being attacked, but I think we're better with Kamara.
Aribo is a bigger miss. Need him back asap.
We may see Kamara pushed a bit forward where he plays so well for FinlandThe only positive thing to come out of it is we don't have to see Jack and Kamara playing in the same team.
Arfield also looked good when he came on against Dundee Utd.
Does anyone know how long Aribo is out for?
We're definitely thin right now, hopefully we can sub a few out tomorrow, get an easy win, smash Hibs and move on from there without any more injury concerns!Our central midfielders are very different to whatever’s need/utilise.
They offer invaluable cover to Borna and Tav.
I like the idea of one of them breaking lines and adding goals. I also think we should be aware, you are unlikely to get the numbers Borna and Tav produce in assists, from a CM.
If we go all out in there, the licence for the defenders would need to stop.
They are auxiliary defenders, letting Tav and Borna play wide and high.
If we were to have 6 attacking threats, I like it being the 4 forwards, plus the two full backs. It gives us variation, width, pace and guile.
One more would help, occasionally, but it’s working well at present, also.
If it can be proven that Scotland duty attributed to/exacerbated calf problem, then that's 2 strikes....irrespective of player's personal choice, I wouldn't give 'them' a chance of Strike 3!This is a major issue with Jack and one Gerrard alluded to before
His body needs to be managed correctly
Fannying about with Scotland isn’t managing his body correctly.
See where you're coming from but disagree.It's a blow but it's not a massive issue to me. I see Glen Kamara as the better player of the two. Appreciate Gerrard seems to favour Jack but I think that is more down to mentality and attitude than actual ability.
Both at their best I would take Kamara definitely. That's why Glen is attracting interest from all over the place.
When the window shut last summer I said that I felt we were still a really top class midfielder away from winning the title.
This seems to me to be part of the problem,time to give up the NATSIf it can be proven that Scotland duty attributed to/exacerbated calf problem, then that's 2 strikes....irrespective of player's personal choice, I wouldn't give 'them' a chance of Strike 3!
