Mate the fact we are hamstrung financially is down to Brands!!! lol
Moshiris the reason we're hamstrung. He should stick to what hes good at- making money, financing the club and the new stadium and stop trying to run every aspect of club and stepping on toes he knows nothing about football-hes squandering his own money trying to control everything.

…I see no issue having two left footers on the left.

It's fine if you don't want your left back overlapping. McNeil doesn't drift inside from the left to give a left back space to run into, he's the one wanting to put a ball in.

There's lots of different ways you can set up in wide areas, but if you want Digne overlapping and crossing, you need to set up to give him space to do that. It's much easier to accomplish that with a wide player in front of him who drifts inside, takes players with him and vacates space for Digne to move into. It's no big concidence that wide players tend to play on the opposite side to their strong foot nowadays - allows them to come into shooting/passing areas on their strong foot but puts the onus for crossing on the full backs.

….it’s not subutteo with the winger stuck against the touchline & they are allowed to use their right foot in link play. The full back can overlap or under lap to get ahead of his teammate, the main thing is that they’re on the same wavelength.

This is the problem of potentially signing McNeil. He by all accounts hardly ever uses his right foot. He’s all left foot apparently. So on the left he would have to hug the touch line. And would that affect Digne. As coming inside wouldn’t really work for him.

And on the right he would constantly be coming back into his left foot. And then crosses are much easier to defend against.

If he’s was a 10/15 goals a season man or he was brilliant at passing and creating loads of chances, then it wouidnt be a issue him on the right. But he doesn’t have them type of numbers yet. Maybe the club think he will turn into that type of player


From what ive seen of him he'd rather take 3 touches with his left than one with his right lol

When was the last time we played with a left footed left back and a proper left footed winger?

The thing with McNeil is that his left foot is really, really, really good...id say hes like a left footed beckham really in terms of how good his crosses seem to be.

Super slow though from what i remember...

Slow for a winger definitely

Olivier Ntcham has left celtic on a free. I've never seen him play however I've heard good things about him. I know the Scottish league can make my nan look good but would he be a decent option on a free as a squad player? Hopefully a few on here have seen him play.
