Is this Barisic link just paper talk? can't understand for a second why we would need another left back. We've currently got English, scottish, welsh international left backs add barisic and that would be a Croatian international. Not easy to keep all 4 happy. For me i'd move Flanagan to right back his natural position and play john at left back.

Barisic can play all across the back four apparently.

Tbh, Tavernier, Flanagan and John are all fullbacks so I get what you’re saying (Wallace is injury prone and unlikely to play for us again with the quality we have infront of him now - IMO) .

But I feel the opportunity to sign this guy for 2m is not one we should pass up. He looks sheer quality and fits the mould of Gerrards team (High work rate, versatile and physical) .

We need a striker ASAP. Rumoured to be spending over £2m for the Croat LB but we are messing about over a few £100k for Lafferty. When Morelos went off we had no genuine goal threat. That needs addressed more than any over position.

06 Aug 2018 08:37:29
We had no goal threat because we were a man down! And actually had more shots and chances than they did with 11 even if we had another striker he wouldn’t have been on cause we were down to 10 so your points completely invalid.

Happy for this lad to be brought in but I thought Flanagan was very good yesterday and you could see he was coping abuse for 90 minutes.

06 Aug 2018 09:39:08
Agree there are other areas we could be strengthening before a new LB but Barisic is a no brainer for me. Can operate at Left Back, Left wing and Centre Back. Also has a fantastic delivery from set pieces which currently looks like an important aspect of our team. I like John but I reckon this will see the end for him and LW (if true) . Trust the manager.

06 Aug 2018 09:56:47
Barasic from what I saw is twice the player Wallace or John are so that's why we'd sign him!
Imo if we did sign Barasic our best XI wouldn't include tav as much as he's a decent player Flanagan at RB is superior. Even for the sheep goal yday I feel he's too slow getting out to close.

06 Aug 2018 09:58:59
Agree with poisedon
Flanagan coped very well under such abuse

06 Aug 2018 09:59:28
Agreed and well written Jzer,

06 Aug 2018 10:04:42
I think this guy looks some player. John is a good player too but this guy different class. Granted I’ve seen him twice. Think we badly need a decent striker. Lafferty would be a good player but I would still want someone else. Morelos isn’t worth the risk anymore imho.

06 Aug 2018 10:08:08
Flanagan will get this at every ground in scotland so it's good to see he can cope with it.

06 Aug 2018 10:24:57
Flanihno was superb yesterday.

Not the easiest on the eye going forward but he is a brick wall defensively, it’s a no brainer he will start ahead of John for the majority of the season and especially against Celtic.

06 Aug 2018 10:53:25
Flanagan looked like he was thriving on the abuse he was getting. He's a quality no nonsense full back. Would love to see him at RB.

06 Aug 2018 12:21:41
LM1991 if Morelos gets banned for 3 games who do we rely on then?

06 Aug 2018 12:30:27
Agree laads flanaghan at rb tav on bench or competition for candias.

06 Aug 2018 14:44:23
JYF, with our current squad, Sadiq gets the nod for me or Windass. Say what you want about the boy but he can finish, again don’t understand how that’ll be relevant to yesterday’s performance.

06 Aug 2018 15:27:33
Skidney, Tav is the club Captain, he won’t be benched.

Flanagan is our left back.

06 Aug 2018 16:26:45
Bearmode if he keeps making mistakes he will be benched.

06 Aug 2018 16:39:15
i rekon we need 2 strikers, not one, a poacher and a big guy who can cause teams problems in the air, we are lacking both.

06 Aug 2018 18:54:48
I would like to see SG at least try something different with Tav, everyone knows how dodgy he can be at RB but I am also sure a lot of people will agree that going forward he can cause a lot of problems for a lot of teams, his delivery at times is really really good if he didn't have to travel the whole length of the pitch to do it you might see even more out of him without the concern at the back. So what if he plays back 4 of Barisic, Katic, Goldson, Flannigan And push Tav to RM or RW if you like Murphy, Kent or Middleton LW Arfield, Jack and Coulibaly CM'S obviously Morelos or Sadiq up top, I know he isn't just going to drop Candeias but at least try Tav at RM to see if it's worth it, he has said he wants 2 quality players in each position so Candeias would just have to try and prove that he is better and vice versa, just my opinion though.
