Levein’s plans for next season

Says now that he has the “pillars” of the team in place he will only need to focus on adding two or three players in the summer and these will be flair players. 

 

Sounds very positive and we have something special being built, similar to his first spell in charge 👍🏻

Hopefully guys like Mcdonald pushing throw as well. 

 

Probably need a keeper as well.

Still hoping that we sign Chris Cadden. His energy and desire to make things happen would be great for us.

There’s at least 5 or 6 in the current squad nowhere near consistent enough so he will need a lot more than 2 or 3 players if were are to be up near 2nd or 3rd.  That’s the problem. We are way to inconsistent.

The board are patient and the vast majority of the supporters are realisticly patient.

 

As predicted, a club with a solid foundation and not one with a throw away mentality is the only route to a sustainable future and hopefully success. 

 

Mr Levein is delivering.

We are ‘near’ third just now and have had comparable success to Aberdeen in the cup competitions which suggests 2 or 3 quality signings would put us on a par with Aberdeen. Rangers budget is 3 or 4 times bigger than ours, hardly realistic to expect us to be more consistent than them.

If we manage to hold onto djoum and Naismith we need an attacking creative central midfielder , left winger and penalty box striker as minimum in my opinion but its great we've finally got the basis of a team and bit of stability

Where’s the ‘attacking, creative central midfielder’ going to play with Djoum, Haring, naismith and Clare on the park?

Me too. Can see him filling the Stampy role on the right. Just need someone to fill the JLV role on the left. 👍🏻

Disagree. Naismith, Clare and Wighton are our number 10s. Agree about left winger though.

Those 5 or 6 will be replaced by the 3 new players and young players stepping up 👍🏻

We need wing backs (Cadden plus Aidy White maybe?)

 

I’d also like to see at least one Milinkovic type signing. I think adding pace on the wings, it’d give us the things we are currently missing. 

 

Add Gordon in goals, with Halkett joining our centre backs, retain Djoum and Naismith and I think we have a proper squad capable of challenging anyone. 

 

The lack of pace (or skill plus pace in the case of Mulraney and Morrison) means we have been lacking this season.

Hearing from a couple of Motherwell fans that he’s stagnated this year, falling down pecking order behind some of their younger players. They reckon he’s not kicked in after initial promise. 

Could be a flash in the pan or may just need a change of scene to put him back on track?

Either way the guys I spoke to said Well would be mad to turn down 500k as had seemingly happened before. 

Maybe more of a gamble than we think?

I hope his plans for next season is to catch up with Hearts via Hearts World as he looks after his health on a beach in Spain lying on a Scottish Cup Winners 2019 beach towel.

Sorry but are you saying mulraney has no pace?

Cadden not played for ages, not sure we can fill our squad up with players that may not recover and reach the required standard....as its top heavy anyway.

Souttar was stagnating before we picked him up now might be the time to get Cadden while people think he is struggling..

He isn’t going to change his entire mindset over one summer. Dream on. 

 

It will I’ll continue to be the same functional, sometimes succesful and sometimes not, football we have enjoyed this far. 

 

It will get us so far but lack the courage to really push us on.

Tbh, allot of folk  on here could do with that as well, looking at some of the posts about CL on here, said posters health - physical and mental state could do with a reset. 👍

 

Likley have to go at it again all next season 😀

Not good enough on the ball for where we want to be. He is plenty fast enough. Hopefully develops as he gets older but, for me, we need players with his pace and the skill level to match.

Not at all, I want him to play. Thought he had a wee brush up with Levein? Strange how he hasn’t featured...

We have pushed on tho. 

 

Lc group v semi

Sc qf v at least semi, I'm saying at least a final. 

League tbc, but atm 5th v 6th last year. 

 

If we can finish in 4th and at least make the final, "pushing us on" will be really difficult, looking at a lc final, sc winner and at least third. 

 

Think you may need to get it in your head that CL will be in charge next season and you(and others) need to decide what the best way of supporting that is? 

 

Argue on here, be negative and depressed and harp on about this - this season, pre season and all  next season 

Or

Look forward to an exciting end to this season and then look to progress, again next season.

I’ve picked up your post wrong then, looks like you’ve worded it as they both have no pace.

Just see quite a few digs at him on here, that’s all. None of which seem confirmed. 

 

Apprentky injuted but then called up by Scotland and this “new bird” rumour that you’re running with. 

 

I inagine Levein doesn’t fancy him ahead of Lee and Boz right now, like Edwards, and it’s no more than that.
