Scottish League Cup Group Stage Draw - 1pm

🔴⚪️ Come on you Reds! ⚪🔴

Recommended Posts

Bit worried about the defence and the impending tombola.

Ok this is pre-season and it is the time to tinker but we are clearly very short at the back and there must be a priority to get probably 1 signing and a loan in for cover/fb position.

 

Saturday started:  L-R: Milsom, Considine, Anderson, Magennis

Saturday 2nd half: Considine, Osbourne, Magennis, Clark

Tonight: Considine, Anderson, Rae, Clark

Very worrying when you consider this is before any sort of injury crisis (Only Robertson out).

 

If Brown is claiming all those youth players are "like new signings" then they need to be involved with the first team in pre-season. Hopefully they all go to Germany.

 

Either way, we need two full backs. But we've needed them since Calderwood left. McGhee played Derek Young at right back in his first game and it's never been sorted since then.

I can't imagine the defensive line-ups are a plan for the season ahead. Would be astonished if we don't bring in at least two defenders. Surely we're just having a look at the guys already on the books because we'll inevitably end up with injuries forcing one of the midfielders into defense at some point.

 

Still three weeks to get folk in so I'm not worried. Yet.

The alternative is that these guys don't get any game time and start the season with no sharpness or match fitness. It does show a glaring lack of full backs, and I hope we sign at least one, but at this exact moment it's more important the players we have are fit for 4th August.

We only have 2 defenders, this has to be addressed rapidly. We need a settled back four for the first game of the season because Celtic will be looking to send out a message to the rest of the SPL.

 

And have an array of wingers and fullbacks looking to exploit width IIRC.
