I HIGHLY HIGHLY doubt he is coming

Gallagher was traded to Austin FC in exchange for $225,000 in General Allocation Money on 13 December 2020, ahead of Austin's inaugural season in 2021.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atlanta_United_2 is more likely any players that might be coming. 3 English, 1 Scottish and a French player that wouldn't require a permit.

Some fringe players from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atlanta_United_FC also might make the swap.  (Mo Adams and Jake Mulraney what i'm looking at)

Different Gallagher min.

Was clear from Glass' first game we need as a minimum one of the centre backs to be a baller. That's no one currently at the club.

Can you not see Ross M taking on that role? I think that would be a good move.

As I've said before....sevco felt that McCrorie was too easily bullied to be an effective central defender.

And that he wasn't technical enough to be a centre mid

So where does that leave him?

At Aberdeen.

At right back, that’s where Portsmouth played him

Luton town after Motherwells Campbell now.

Would hope Glass tries to nip in 

We have far too many central midfielders and even if a deal was already mooted to sell ferguson then he's still got countless others

If McCrorie is getting shifted back & Ferguson potentially sold it is a no brainer as Brown will be lucky to play 50%.

Even without selling Ferguson now it would make sense. Both Campbells & Ferguson(now McCrorie) all play together often in same U21 side.

We are supposed to be pushing for youth/profits in future.

This would fit that plan

Their manager directly said today they weren’t interested. 
With quotes.

What you sent was just the usual tabloid guesswork. 

You trust him more than the daily record?

Why will Brown be lucky to play 50%?

 

What percentage of Celtic games has he played this season?  Must be over 80%?

What do they know...never struck me as being susceptible to being bullied off the ball easily, based on his time at the Dons. He’s decent in the air, quick, technically decent and good defensively.

Right sided centre half in the making...

I’d say that’s his best chance of a long-term position.

Doesn’t have the technique for centre midfield IMO, for which you don’t need as much of at centre half.

Depends partly on whether Ferguson stays, McGeouch too. There’s a chance one or both might not be here come next season.

Portsmouth thought exactly the same thing

They only played him at right back because they had an injury crisis. Had they had a full squad to choose from, he would have been on the bench at best.

Sevco might be a detestable institution but they are looking increasingly correct about cashing in for him.

17 full games (39 total appearances) of Celtics 50 games.

so one 3rd of full games. I’d reckon the other 22 appearances will not make up to your assumed 80% +

plus he will be a year older with us so I’d say 50% is a fair enough guess for what he will play for us

Aye but how many of those 39 has he started? Pretty much all of them?

It's not been a great season for Celtic but for differing reasons there are probably 2 explanations why he isn't finishing many games.

In the games where they are winning comfortably, there's no need for him to stay on the full 90 minutes....at his age it's for the best if he gets rested whenever possible. The 5 subs rule has helped facilitate this.

And as I said, it hasn't been a good season for Celtic. They've dropped many more points than normal. When they are chasing a game that isn't going their way, they need creativity.....and with the best will in the world that isn't Brown's forte. So again he gets subbed off.

I think so long as he is fit, he'll start the vast majority of our games

25 starts. Not sure how that is relevant really. Doesn’t change the stats/mins etc. as those still have him at closer to my guesstimate of 50% (probably even less) than your presumption of MORE than 80%

but as I say, those are for this season. He isn’t getting younger/fitter next summer, so hardly think he’s going to improve on that much.

I believe my assumption of about 50% for us is a fair assumption given the above.

If he starts all our games & gets subbed off at HT that is still 50% same as if he didn’t start but came on for all second half’s 😉

Not trying to argue here but I would say he will be closer to my guesstimate of 50%for us than yours of 80%+ for Celtic to compare, which was vastly off mark by comparison 

 

side note 😉 even his total appearances for them this season don’t take him to your ‘must be over 80%’ enquiry as 39 apps in 50 has him at less than 80%. That’s giving benefit of doubt as well & not taking your ‘how many games has he played’ literally as that would mean full games as opposed to mins/apps

Just to clarify, do you believe it will be closer to 50% than 80%?
