You think we will get Aribo mate? It would be some coup considering the amount of teams interested, none as big as us but all could offer more wage.
I am confident we will mate but i don't know anything, Gerrard will be a huge factor in his decision i would imagine but its a great platform for him playing infront of 50k fans and euro football.

It's been pretty clear for ages we are looking for 3 or 4 quality players to come straight in to the first team. People flying off the handle thinking we are only signing Jones, Hastie and Stewart and slamming the recruitment is getting pretty tedious (I know you may not believe this but there are people who definitely do).
Has Stewart actually signed though?

I know a lot of posters are worried about Arfield or Jack's place being under threat and where they will fit in if Aribo and Ojo come
We need 16/17 top quality players, a level up from having Candeias, Lafferty and McCrorie on the bench.

No offence to these players and i still think McCrorie will develop into a good player but we need a level above these players on our bench.

We could have a bench of
Fod
New Defender
Flanno
Murphy
Jones/Ojo
Jack
Stewart
Morelos

Thats just an example and its a million times stronger

Your manager can't spend a fair amount of time mauling a player for being weak or not up to it then demand over double what you paid for the player in such a short space of time.

For all Gerrard's positives, he's mishandled Barisic and Grezda regardless of what outcome we're hoping for.
Not sure he did if Barisic has apologised....sometimes in management you need to lay down a marker if Grezda doesn’t come back from it....the rest of the squad now know....that Stevie has a line....cross it and you’re fucked! That can’t be a bad thing!

If Arfields on the bench we are gonna have some player keeping him out the team!
 
Gerrard said he wants 4 centre backs, one of them will be a ‘project player’, last season it was obviously Katic he classed as that, this season I assume it was to be Edmunson, maybe we just don’t want to pay more than we think this particular player is worth.

I wouldn’t ‘worry’, whats the point?
I think it's down to the player and his agent to push it from their end, it's not as if he doesn't want to come, apparently he's all for it.
 
If we lose a player the manager clearly wanted then it is a loss.

If we lose him to a 600k bid from Peterborough then that is worrying.

I'm hoping it's nonsense.
If the guys happy to pfaff around at the likes of Peterborough then it’s no great loss, we need players committed to winning stuff, improving their careers, not lower league jobbers.
 
Middleton and Hastie could seriously damage the papes next season if playing for another SPL club. Also give us a bit of transfer leverage if we pick the right clubs (ie Motherwell/Turnbull). For these reasons I’d like to see them remain in Scotland rather than go to the likes of Bury or Shrewsbury (no offence intended to those clubs).

I'd say any of our loan players are better out of the toxic environment of our top league.

The reaction Hastie got from the Motherwell fans for example - I don't mind them being annoyed, but it was beyond that. And that was heightened because it was Rangers he was going to.

Agreed. Hope we start loaning boys to spl teams so they can strengthen teams against Celtic but can’t play against us. They do it all the time.

Need to start being clever.

Arfield will start the season in the same position he finished last season.

He's the best player in the country in that position by an absolute mile.

Another 2 goals for Canada yesterday.
Probably my fault for suggesting he might drop back one,but I only see that happening if there’s injuries to the midfield three otherwise he’s first pick above anyone currently on our books in the inside forward role.
Of course the staff might tweak the formation during the season if teams become more proactive in combating it(the formation)

Nah the poster is right. Loaning our players to other SPL teams where they can damage our competitors is the way to go.
 
I never really take it seriously when I read folks saying - fans of other club say player X is pish.

I mean, based on that someone on some Sheffield Wednesday forum is saying "RFC97 is saying Ryan Jack is pish" for example.

That shows the level of credibility it has - we also had it with Kent last summer

Mad as it is, some folks who support football teams know %^*& all.

Freddo on the bench? :eek::eek::eek:
 
Just lots of comments before mine suggesting he would go back with Kent n ojo occupying the wider slots
I think it’ll be good to have a few system options WTS.
I will be surprised if SG doesn’t start next season with the system we finished with this season with, however we need the ability to change both for matches & within them if it doesn’t work.
And it won’t always work over a season.

The boy never accepted the bid ffs, his club did.

The boy handed in a transfer request when our bids kept getting knocked back.

I believe he’ll knock back Peterborough, holding out for us, the ‘Lower league jobber’ that he is.

This is where I don’t know where Ojo would fit in as a first teamer.

It also makes me think, among other factors, that we will be returning to a 4-3-3 next year.
Why can't it just be that we have good players as backup ? rather than average ones !

The manager wants 2 really good players in each position and its for him to workout who plays when and injuries, suspensions etc come into play aswell.

I’d be more willing to accept this if we owned the players. But when they’re on loan, it tends to be that it’s them who’ll be playing.

So is he taking Airfields place or sitting out on the bench a fair bit?

Doesn’t really add up.
