Right back challenge

913

We can convince ourselves we have players who can fill the right back role, and this may be true for a few more weeks, but Mikael Lustig was one of the frailties that cost us against AEK last August, and we don’t even have him now.

So far the transfer window has gone well, but a team is as well as its weakest link. Failure to get a right back who can stop crosses into the box has to be avoided.

That night in Athens is all the motivation we should need.

  1. Exactly.

     

     

    Which is why I believe we should throw as much resource at it as possible.

     

     

    Be prepared to go spend Castagne-like amounts. This guy needs to be a key player.

  2. Regards a right back,maybe if we make it be known that we do world class breakfasts it would attract world class players .

    Early days, but most of us like the look of our 3mill left back. Good value it seems.

     

    Same again, but right footer fits the bill for me. And one, like Boli, who seemed hungry to be a Celt.

  5. A replacement for Lustig should have been in long ago. Our recruitment is a shambles. It shows we need a Director of Football so that there is continuity when a manager leaves. Instead we are scrambling around for a right-back while playing CL qualifiers. We have three left-backs but not one right-back considered good enough.

    We did. He left with the manager!

  7. A shambles letting Lustig go. He was poor against Athens as he wasn’t up to speed after World cup. Gamboa should have played. But we could have kept lustig for this year ans especially until we signed a RB! Just need to pay same wages as he was on for another r year

  8. He doent rate AR so let him go.. Same with jack Aitchinson. both look ok to me and will improve. But we need decent RB and CF now

  9. Glad that you reminded everyone of the AEK game. There were others in Europe where Lustig was culpable. That is why BR tried to replace him for the last 2 years

    So, missing at least one whose name escapes me but so far the RB chase in order of preference is currently whittling its way through and is stuck somewhere on the following list:

     

     

    Castagne

     

    Stacey

     

    Smith

     

    Beer Sheva guy

     

    Any Dudu Duhan guy that can play RB

     

    O’Donnell

     

    Awe Naw has Annoni Got Any Kids that Can Play RB Anaw Noo

     

     

    3 weeks till the league starts. Early CL qualifiers to far flung corners of Europe not quite the straightforward task we associate with these rounds. Can see why fans are restless.

  11. I know there have been a lot of links between Celtic and player from the Championship

     

     

    But we have signed players from Austria and France this window. Proof we are looking elsewhere.

     

     

    Add to that signing Shved from Ukraine.

  12. dont we have a dof on a six month term. x west brom.

     

     

    this rb problem and cb is a shambles imo.

  13. This is an interesting article on Andy Robertson. What is most interesting for us is what is says about recruitment at Liverpool FC. Recruitment is led by a sporting director, there’s a guy with a PhD in physics running their player database and their scouts watch potential signings in blocks of 15-20 matches to gain a full picture of a player’s ability and character. Their head scout compiled a season’s worth of reports on Andy Robertson before they signed him. We might not have Liverpool’s resources but in comparison our recruitment is amateurish.

    He has played left back a few times. He replaced Boli as left back in Sarajevo when Boli got injured.

  15. Troops……..any idea if the site ” Football Insider” is linked with the Record?

     

    I understand that ” Football Scotland ” is……..

     

     

    Thanks in adavnce.

     

     

    Askin’ for a friend………………

  16. roddy mxdonald played CF for Celtic for a spell. it didn’t make him a striker!

    Our version appears to be the backroom staff pulling an all nighter using the Hotel’s transfer channel as a resource….

     

     

    Very amaterish…

    Could try Hendry at right-back???

     

     

    Stephen?

  19. The last few windows we’ve signed players from France, Belgium, Ukraine, Slovakia, Saudi, USA, Scotland.

     

     

    Only Connell has been signed from England.

     

     

    We’ve had a fair few loans but no purchases since who, Ntcham?? (who was playing in Italy)

    Would be as well too, we would need snookers.

  22. felt sorry for Hendry playing RB. completely out of his depth. Play him in front od a decent sweeper and he might learn to play CH. Just keep it simple

  23. We tried Hendry at right back in his first game at Killie and at Easter Road in 2018. Both were defeats and abject disasters.
