Who I would let go and why

Well the axe is going to fall next week on a few players.
Here’s my list of contenders and why

  • Cervi – never made it past Lucus
  • Brozek – only on loan anyway
  • Rassmussen – failed
  • McGinn – not good enough
  • Murphy – not good enough
  • O’Dea – not wanted by Leeds, not good enough for us
  • Juarez – total failure
  • Loovens – too many injuries
  • McCourt – First division player
  • Stokes – selfish and we could get a good few million for him
  • Cha – done his stint
  • M.Wilson -sorry to see him go but too much time on the doctors table

I toyed with the idea of Ki as we could get a good few bob for him but I’d rather keep him and see him in Europe which suits his game better then hopefully we can get £10m for him next year.
So that’s my list.what is yours ?

  1. Mine was pretty much the same…. Rassmussen Failed ,Juarez Failed ,Mastorovic Out of contract ,McGinn Not good enough ,McCourt not good enough , Loovens out of contract , Brozek loan , Murphy not good enough , O`dea not good enough , Slane not good enough , Thompson not good enough , Towell not good enough ,Willson (mark) should not be letting go, however I agree to much time injured, and Cha as u say has doine his time. But bangura was also on my mind on this….. Hmmmmm

  3. My prediction on who is for the exit ;
    DF – M.Wilson (my fave squad player – so I am gutted)
    DF – Loovens or Majstorovic ( keep 1 of the 2 for squad as perhaps Rogne/Kelvin a bit injury prone and if we play with 3 CB, we would need the numbers for rotation after/prior to Euro ties)
    DF – Josh Thompson ( loan spells have found him benched at League1 club)
    DF – O’Dea (just not consistent enough)
    MF – McGinn ( like the lad, but needs to move and find a decent level)
    MF – Juarez (hopefully get a few quid £500k for him)
    MF – Towell ( loan period at Hibs has not been successful)
    MF – McCourt ( the Derry Pele need to show his skills on a more regular basis – squad player with us)
    FW – Murphy (big strong Striker we require ?? not Darryl though, unfortunately, so similar to Killen situation)
    FW – Rasmussen (just not the level we require to progress)
    Leaves us with Squad –
    GK – New GK (hopefully FF) , Zaluska, Cervi
    DF (R) – Matthews, Lustig, Cha
    DF (L) – Izzy, Blackman – (cover Mulgrew, Ledley, Matthews)
    DF (C) – Rogne, Mulgrew, K. Wilson, Fojut, Loovens/Majstorovic – (cover Wanyama, youth player)
    CM – Brown, Kayal, Ledley, Wanyama, Ki,
    WIDE MF – Forrest, Commons, McGeouch, Rabui Ibrahim, – (cover Brown, Ledley, Cha)
    FW – Hooper, Stokes, Sami, Bangura (will come good), – ( cover James Keatings , Tony Watt )
    New faces – GK – A Must ! as I have said Forster first choice, strange he hasn’t agreed yet – worried!
    DF (C) – possible area to strengthen, with huge amount of games if reach Gp stages – could
    also dispense with Loovens/Majstorovic if added.
    MF (Versatile type) plays wide but not out and out a winger, one winger enough in 1ST 11
    FW – A Must ! Big, bold Suttie type – I know, thin on the ground that type, and must be
    financed.

  5. I think it’s a pretty straightforward list this year.. We’re on the right track, it’s just a case of trimming the squad now.
    My list would be:
    Juarez – Shame it hasn’t worked out for him, but after to seaons, time to cut our losses.
    Majstorovic – Good servant while he was here, but contract, age and erratic form mean i’d let him leave.
    Cha – Decent player, but hopefully we’ve still to see the best of Lustig, too many right backs.
    Mark Wilson – Big fan of his, but pretty much the same reasons as with Cha.
    Brozek – Done nothing on loan to suggest he’d be worth keeping.
    Rasmussen – His failures on several loan spells mean i wouldn’t be in a rush to keep him.
    McCourt – Love to watch him play, but he’s a bit part player at best.
    Loovens – Looks like he’s starting to come onto a game, but apparently on around £13k a week!
    Cervi – Hasn’t ever looked like even being second choice, never mind first.
    Murphy – Again, done nothing to suggest he’d be worth keeping.
    Keatings – Shame when a young player doesn’t make the grade, could be a decent SPL player elsewhere.
    Slane – No chance of making a first team breakthrough.
    Towell – As with Keatings and Slane, simply not good enough to break through.
    Thompson – Looked lost in the first team, not exactly looking a world beater at Chesterfield.
    Toshney – Not good enough.
    O’Dea – Looks decent in the Championship, three Celtic managers have used him sparingly though.
    McGinn – Not good enough.
    If we have to sell one of our star players this summer, i’d go with either Ki or Stokes. Stokesy does a better job on a more regular basis, but Ki should hopefully have an impact in Europe (not to mention commercially in S. Korea). I’d take £6m-£8m for Ki, maybe around £3m-£4m for Stokes.
    Players like Bangura & K. Wilson deserve a second season to prove themselves, so i’d happily keep them.
    I realise it’s quite a long list, but i don’t think i’ve included anyone who can really have a good future at the club, which shows how much deadwood we’ve accumulated over the last 3 seasons or so.

  7. Should do one on players to buy! good read, agree with all the players to go although i would sell samaras he never does it consistently enough. Maybe get 2m for him?

  9. I think the only players who will leave will be those out on loan and those who are out of contract, i dont see any regular players being sold just yet, we have to try qualify for champions league group stage, if we make it, we have the wee bonus of £10/12m and i dont think anyone will be sold and would think nobody would want away, most of our squad has never played at that level and must fancy a shot at it! However if we fail to make it (remember we will know either way before the transfer window closes at end of august) i think ki or kayal will be sold to help make up for the loss of income, and hooper will want away to southampton for 3 reasons, to work with his old boss, to sample the premiership and to try play his way into the england squad, he will be on their radar if we in champions league but not week to week SPL, i would hope we sign an experienced centre half and an experienced striker, before our qualifyers so if we do lose anyone on deadline day we are not left short, looking forward to next season already!!

  11. Was Rassmussen’s record for us (not loans) played 3 scored 2? Then Keane arrived and walked straight in to team and Rassmussen didn’t play again all season? (memory could be wrong)
    I liked him and felt sorry for him when Keane arrived, why has he never been brought back to first team though from loans? (is he crap or is it attitude?) I’d like to see him do well
