Disappointing end to the season, not that it matters really but what it did reinforce was who we rely on and who we don't. So the exodus begins, for me these are the players who for whatever reason don't have a future at us.

Out - Alnwick Foderingham McAuley Worral Barasic Wallace Koulibaly Grezda Candieas Lafferty. (Possibly rossiter and docherty) . Of course Kent but hopefully he returns. that's a huge cull again and that list is the reason for our inconsistencies, in short we never had any decent quality as back up.

People will disagree but in my eyes we never really saw any real progression until just before the split when we put 6 wins together, that hadn't been achieved since the 11/ 12 season. Up until the split we were still struggling with inconsistency.

Anyway so far we have brought in hastie jones and it looks very much like stewart has already joined. We all know that they won't improve the starting 11 but what they are is players who have proved beyond any doubt that they can play in our league, they were the best players at their respective clubs, they are risk free and will add proven spl quality and depth to our squad that should help rid us of our inconsistencies. On a free they are no brainers.

I do think we are a better team with defoe up top, he is more intelligent in his play than morelos. There was a few times yesterday when morelos could have passed it but opted to shoot. I think defoe is more of a team player. It was some finish from morelos but if he is sold to fund the 3 or 4 players we need then I will have no problem with that.

With murphy and dorrans (who gave us a glimpse of what he can do that night in villareal) coming back and with the addition of three or four quality players coupled with a back bone of players who no longer have a fear then we really should be in a better place for next season.

Make no excuses though, this season was an opportunity wastedđź‘Ť.

Can't understand why Candieas is so unpopular? Not a world beater I grant you but I think he has had a good season.

20 May 2019 14:02:21
Are folk forgetting we also have the likes of Holt Herrera Dodoo etc to come back aswell? There are plenty who could go this summer but as the gaffer said when the window opens its about quality rather than quantity this time around.

20 May 2019 14:02:34
I admire his work rate bimo but he does lack that bit of quality and very rarely beats a man. With murphy jones and hastie being more direct I struggle to see where he fits in. đź‘Ť.

Good post, hope I'm wrong, but Ohalloran 2.0 er I mean Jones just ain't good enough, Hastie has potential so does Middleton they both need real games, if not for us then loans. Roll on colt teams getting the green light. Stewart I just don't see the point. We need a really imposing CB better than Goldson So we can rotate over a season. Left back, and striker fill these 3 spots with better class players and we are looking good.

Candieas incredibly over rated because he works hard doesn't give him a free pass.
Average player and for us to improve he must move on.

20 May 2019 15:19:09
It should be a Given that a Professional Footballer Gives 100% Candieas gets stick because of his final ball and his crossing ie were it matters. if he sorted that part of his game out he would be a Great Player.

Candeias is far too inconsistent and very rarely has a run of games. When he is bad he is awful and too many times he just doesn’t turn up. It’s clear to see why he has had the nomadic career that he has had. Typical of why we didn’t win the league far too inconsistent.

20 May 2019 15:49:33
Agree with most of your points coldo
I would like candaeis to stay useful guy to have around given his energy n he can get us up the pitch when we need it even if mostly from the bench.

20 May 2019 16:34:27
Coldo you really had me thinking that was a serious post until you mentioned Dorrans! Lol!

Every player you mentioned is better than him. I would even put Alnwick into a midfield before him! Total imposter!

20 May 2019 17:29:43
Zikos u obv don’t have a clue about football if u believe that. What a pile of bs .

Scotty I tend to think I do, and saw every one of Dorrans’s appearances for us and he was p@£s poor in every single one (bar none) . Scott Brown owned him in every old firm match they played.

He did score a good goal in a cup game v Partick Thistle (which is probably his level) but was rank for the rest of the match.

I think a central midfielder, above anything, should be able to pass the ball and retain possession. The absolute basics. He can’t even do that! Then when he losses the ball, he can’t even put the fort into winning it back!

Out of Interest Scotty can you remember any standout performances? And not when he played for West Brom!

20 May 2019 19:37:38
the game when he scored a double against Motherwell to help us win 2-1 might ruin your argument mate.

20 May 2019 20:44:35
Considering one was a penalty I don’t think it’s any great feat. From a midfielder, I would be more interested in his passing accuracy and the amount of tackles he won?

Listen it’s nothing personal, I just don’t think he is good enough. He certainly wouldn’t get a game for Celtic and for me that means by default he isn’t good enough for us, we need better players to challenge them.

For me Doherty and Rossiter offer more but maybe SG sees something he can work with?

Hopefully he proves me completely wrong and is player of the season next year with us winning the league, although I can’t see it (not the winning the league part - I can see that) .
