    I don't think he is good enough at CB or ever will be. I'll be happy to be proved wrong but there are weaknesses in his game that he won't get rid of imo.

    He's not bad, don't get me wrong, but I think we should be aiming for better.

    When the game is in front of Ajer he is very good but he lacks concentration with cross balls and ones over the top.

    He is a good CB who has performed well at International level now and will get better.

    At times though when you watch him win the ball in the middle and run out of defence with it you think it could have been a mistake moving him from a defensive midfield position as he still has those attributes to take over from Brown imo.

    One thing he needs to add if he wants to go to the next level at CB is aggression in the air, for a guy his size he isn't very dominant.

    Expecting the Clyde game to be off on Sunday.

    That stadium is bad enough to play in and sit in when it's 15 mph winds.. If it hits the 50-70 expected there is no chance football can be played.

    We could do without that as it will mean a league game gets rescheduled, but the chances are that this will probably happen.

    Yes and it happens every time a player has a dip in form.

    See James Forrest for details.

    I don’t think so. His previous performances indicate that most fans are patient enough to see him turn it around, and believe he will.

    Comfortable win for us today and good to see Ntcham turn in such a confident performance. Albeit against lesser opposition, but when he is on it he looks a class act. As does Elyonoussi.

    Guys like Bayo and Klimala are going to find it really difficult, because our fans along with being quick to judge will also see any other striker as being levels below Edouard. Good to see Bayo get a goal though and his movement was smart.

    Decent draw for the next round.

    I think he's been really good for us this season and in particular the last 2 or 3 months. He seems to have sorted his attitude out and at first I thought he was playing for a January move but he's been pretty good most games. Let's hope he keeps it up as on form he's one of the best midfielders we have.

    We should be in the market for a left back/wingback in the summer.

    Would you sign Aaron Hickey?

    I think the boy has loads of potential.

    We don't need potential, we need a starter and he's nowhere near good enough at the moment. I think that lad from Rosenborg might be worth a punt tbh.

    I'd sign Hickey mate, i think he'll go onto become a good player and would get better with us.

    I also think he's had a good grounding already despite the fact he's still very young.
