I really hope the Charlie Adam stuff is true. He might not be mobile but he can spot a pass. Levein built the international team around him so I won't dismiss it.

On the basis of two players for every position, I'd be reasonably happy with this going forward. One quality/big name signing in each area of the park, with some seasoned pros and youngsters to supplement when required. Which I believe, is Craig's vision. 


Goalkeepers

- Quality keeper required
- Hamilton

Right Back

- Smith

- Godinho

 

Centre Back

- Berra

- Souttar

- Hughes (if he retires, I'd be happy promoting Hamilton)

- Bradley (or similar type of experienced pro)

 

Left Back

- Mitchell (back on loan)

- Burns (as backup)

 

Centre Midfield

- Quality midfielder required

- Adao (loan/permanent)

- Lee

- Djoum/Cochrane

 

Attacking Midfield 

- Naismith (loan/permanent)

- Milinkovic (loan/permanent)

- Amankwaa

- Mulraney

- Burns

 

Striker

- Lafferty

- Maclean

- Ikpeazu

 

Probably lacking one more in the attacking midfield position. Ideally, we'd sign one more, possibly a right sided player.

 

A starting line up of:

 

- Quality keeper

- Smith/Godinho

- Souttar

- Berra

- Mitchell

- Quality midfielder

- Adao

- Milinkovic

- Naismith

- Right sided attacking midfielder

- Lafferty

 

Highlighted the positions in yur starting XI that have still to be confirmed/addressed.

 

Agree with what you are saying but it's easy to forget that most of our better players from this season are not guaranteed to be here next.

Long way to go though!

We don’t have anyone who can go box to box or pick out a pass from midfield. Hopefully Olly Lee can but we’ll need more. Don’t feel we can rely on Djoum. He’s never been the bravest and, after his injury I don’t expect that to change.

Agree about Mulraney, we need pace too

 

Callachan can go box to box as can Cowie. Ye I agree with the passing comment, a player like that would be a great addition

There is substance to the Charlie Adam rumour. We made contact a month or two ago with him and there is possible movement there.

How much truth is in the rumours regarding Charlie Adam? Anything concrete? Or just the usual hearsay? 

 

 a hibs (don't know why that matters) mate of mine sent me a message this morning saying he will be a hearts player by the start of next season but nothing to back it up, this same mate told me about olly lee signing before it was as announced, which I ignored and then funnily enough turned out to be true. 

 

 

I'd say your mate is a slaiver ??

He's that much of a slaiver, I'd say it twice?

Possibly, if he calls this one correct tho, that's 2 outta 2 from him, he must be not bad at the guessing game lol

True. Just can't see it to be honest. Even at his age, I think he'd be a massive coup, and I'll not allow myself to consider my team next year could have Lafferty, Naismith and Adam in it. 

 

...but if Daz says there may be some truth in it then who knows. Still, given that yer mate is a Hibby, I'd suggest he's a slaiver anyway, regardless ?

Charlie Adams was in the media just before Gerrard was appointed pinning his colours to the Hun mast, giving a strong hint that's where he wants to be.

 

I would rather have Stephane Adam

The lack of mobility is a bit of a myth. He plays almost every week in the fastest, most physically demandibg league in the workd and wouldn’t be doing that if he wasn’t mobile

And that’s the only way to play him. He’s fat and slow and managers/fans that have expected him to track runners have always ended up disappointed. But he’s a great passer of the ball. With Adao, Cochrane, Cowie etc to do his running, I think he’d be a great signing.

Absolutely. Shows where we are just now.

 

As it stands our line up would be:

 

- Hamilton

- Smith

- Souttar

- Berra

- Burns

- Lee

- Cochrane

- Cowie

- Mulraney

- Amankwaa

- Lafferty

 

Some difference eh!

Exactly my thought's to be honest, him being a hibby says it all (not to be trusted) ?, which is why I ignored him regarding lee signing.

 

After hearing about Adam, I thought I'm checking this out, who better to respond than daza himself, i now believe Adam signing is possible, still very unlikely but you never know.

I really hope so. Someone of his quality would give the team experience and ability from the back to the front.  An on form Charlie Adam, Naismith and Lafferty would be good enough against any defence.  Mouth watering!  A real show of intent if Levein pulls this off.

Interested in you kind of discussion. Ball would be in CA's court as i'm sure he has several offers. I'm sure we will have offered him something though

Ross Wallace has had a decent career. Never a big name, but he’s been played a lot of games in good leagues for a long time now!

 

32 now but he’d be a solid signing for anyone outside Celtic IMO

I confess to not following English football much nowadays but fitter and more mobile guys than Charlie haven't coped with the pace and other physical elements of our game. 

 

The important thing - if we were to get him - would be to make sure we can make best use of his skills. Chasing the likes of mcginn over the park isnt for him

Certainly would. The guys a winner, if you brought him in he'd be another leader in the dressing room. Him and Cowie in the middle, I like that combination in the big games

The Charlie Adam rumours went all the way back to January if I recall. I wasn’t overwhelmed then and I wouldn’t be much now. Not saying I wouldn’t take him, but I wouldn’t get excited about it.

 

Might be a moot point anyway as Stoke might see him as well suited to the Championship or as someone else has suggested if Rangers sniff he’ll probably jump. I’m sure Levein has been in touch, but when you see that McGregor apparently shook hands on signing with us to only then sign for Rangers then any minimal contact at this stage doesn’t really mean anything.

I have a feeling he may end up at Dundee, his boyhood heroes.

Yeah, I can see sevco chucking 10k a week at him.

 

If he wants a move back home I think he’ll end up there. Gerrard being there only strengthens that possibility imo.

Not sure about that. Sure I remember reeading something where Gerrard and Bellamy were taking the piss out of Adam after he left to join Stoke and were saying how he wasn’t Liverpool quality.

Adam backed Gerrard all the way for Rangers boss before he got the job. If he comes North it will be to them or Dundee.

i seen on Facebook, Stuart Findlay (on loan at Killie) mentioned as a possible loan target.

Is there any substance in this? very decent player and realistic target.

Our wage ceiling will largely  dictate the players we can attract. Plenty of other attractive factors work in our favour.  But not being able to offer 10k a week will put some people off. What were you wondering?
