Celtic fans not impressed with tonight's performance against Legia Warsaw.
Mutterings around Murrayfield that the new Norwegian manager should go. Not a good start of his stewardship of this famous club.

AFC Wimbledon have made an short term loan offer to transfer-listed Gillingham defender Adam Barrett.
The Dons are looking for a replacement at centre back, just for the start of the season, after Andy Frampton has been ruled out for at least 6 weeks with a broken ankle. Barrett appears the ideal replacement and after being transfer-listed after loyal service that has seen him captaining the Gills over the past two seasons, including leading them to the League Two title, it looks like he is now on his way out of the club.
Gillingham have said that the player will now decide whether he wants to drop down a division for a short term spell at the League Two side.

Also AFC Wimbledon are yet to make a final decision on trialist Callum Kennedy. They are in the market for a left back and have had the player, who they released just months ago, on trial over the pre-season. Dons' boss Neal Ardley has said that he has been impressed with the player's performances, and it looks likely he will sign on for one more season at the Kingston-based side.

Would like to see us sign Jean C Bahebaek as he has been in form in pre season with PSG. Scoring twice while playing alongside Ibrahimovic who in the same game scored a hat-trick. Would also like Nick Powell join on loan as he would create chances for the team. Looking forward to the new season, I think its going to b a good one for Addicks fans. let's get behind Mr Duchalet, Bob Peeters and the lads. COME. ON. YOU. ADDICKS

My personal opinion on the players that Manchester United could potentially sell

Nani- When he has been given a run in the team, he has looked a good player, in 2010-11 season his goals from midfield were crucial and he started the 2011-12 season off brilliantly with goals against Chelsea and Arsenal. He has struggled in the last two years, but until his red card that never was against Madrid in 2012-13 he was the best player on the pitch and created our goal. Nani has never been given a serious run in the team, unlike Young, Cleverley and Welbeck who have never looked like producing in a United shirt.

Tom Cleverley- Definitely sell, we have a lot of home-grown players to comply with FA rules, so we don't need to keep him. He never looks like creating a goal and consistently passes backwards, when he passes forward, his passes are usually inaccurate. Compared to Kagawa and Nani, I don't understand how he got his chance in the United XI.

Maourane Fellaini- Definitely sell. A David Moyes panic buy, no use at Old Trafford, he can't play in his preferred position because there are six better options and he is clueless defensively. Fergie made 104 buys as United manager and not one was as worse as the Belgian. If I was LVG, I would get the best price possible and invest in a player like Vidal, but perhaps won't get him.

Shinji Kagawa- Keep, looked a great player at Borussia Dortmund and showed promising signs of maintaining those standards in his first campaign at United, in particular the great hat-trick against Norwich. If fans judge him on one bad season under a manager that he was consistently played out of position or on the bench and want him sold, then there is a case for every player with the exceptions of Wayne Rooney, Adnan Januzaj and David de Gea.

Javier Hernandez- Would definitely keep at the club, fantastic finisher, great predatory instinct. He was a bargain at £8m and repaid that sum back instantly with 18 goals in his first season. He is a great player to have in the squad and any manager in world football would be a complete fool if they did not want Hernandez in their side. I would understand why he would want to leave, and has always given his best whenever he has played. Fantastic attitude and it still staggers me how Welbeck gets picked over him.

Anderson- Hampered by injuries, but given a decent run in the side, he can hit the heights of what was first expected when he first joined us. He will be better off for his injury experiences and I personally believe he is better than both Cleverley and Fellaini. Keep for now and give him a chance this season.

Ashley Young- Showed promise in pre-season, but he now knows he has to prove himself because he was pretty much guaranteed a place in the squad if he was fit enough under the previous British managers. I am undecided, if a good offer came in I would accept the deal and wish him well, but I just believe in the past few years he has been lazy.

What are your ideas? Post underneath please. I would like to hear thoughts from everyone. I know I missed players like Zaha, Evans, Smalling and Welbeck, but I presume they will all stay.

Huddersfield manager mark robins is trying to persuade craig mackail smith to join the terriers. Would be the ideal replacement for james vaughan who looks set to miss a considerable amout of the season with a torn calf.
