We’ve been largely impressed with Steven Gerrard this season. Has he been perfect? Of course not, but for his first season in professional management, he’s done a very good job. We’re in a better place than we were a year ago, and long may it continue.

Clearly, the club are planning to improve the team further this summer, with Gerrard revealing as much in a press conference. He said: “We will try and add more quality to make our eleven stronger”. 

This is good because, obviously, it’s essential that our squad improves as we look to close the gap between us and Celtic.

However, these words are meaningless if Gerrard repeats the mistakes that he made last summer. Whilst the boss brought in a few good players, there were more than a few flops, and that doesn’t bode too well.

The likes of Ovie Ejaria, Umar Sadiq and even Kyle Lafferty have all struggled this season, with some having already left, and they’ve taken up valuable space in the squad that could have been filled by more deserving, high-quality players.

Even if you look at January, the arrival of Steven Davis hasn’t been an overwhelming success, and there’s always a chance that he could look to bring the midfielder back to the club this summer.

We trust Gerrard to impress in the summer market, but one thing must be made clear; we can’t afford any more poor moves. They could cost us a title chance. We need to spend, and the club appear to be willing to do that, but they must spend wisely.

Thoughts?

  • The players he recruits need to hit the ground running and be up for the challenge. No passengers. We have to be disciplined and fight for 90 minutes. We will still be playing against 14 men every week as we have never won a 50/50 decision since the Willie Collum incident. Need to get a spokesman to speak up for the Club against all the negative publicity.

  • Trial and error first season pass mark VG+ , BUT we still need solid defenders Travernier depends too much on Candieas to cover for him everytime he makes mistakes which is every game , Worrel I don’t class as dependable rather have Katics, Davis and DeFoe will come right and be big advantage next season , no room for Lafferty only there for pension money get rid also sell Morelos and get a player to play beside DeFoe in a 4-4-2 system.
