    Just think some of the biggest stars of that win against Barca were Matthews, Wanyama, Forster, Tont Watt... the oldest being Forster at 23/24 which is young for a keeper.

    As was Kayal, Ledley just older than that, even Stokes was round that age.

    Broony was 26/27... most of the core of the team were below 26/27 which I’d think is the start of ‘peak’ footballing years.

    Makes sense.

    Lennon did always play young guys Forster,Ki, Matthews, Forrest, Van Dijk, Wanyama, Stokes, Hooper, Griffiths, Ledley, Kayal were all like 18-23 when playing for him. Even guys like Ambrose, Mulgrew, K.Wilson, Lustig, Izaguirre were only 24-27. Only "old" guys who really played for Lennons teams were Brown, Samaras and Commons and they weren't even 30.

    Then for every Majstorovic, Loovens, Cha, Boerrigter or that game played there was Bitton, Juarez, Henderson, McGeouch, Pukki, Watt

    The last 2 midfielders we signed from Motherwell worked out not too bad.

    Hopefully Turnbull can eclipse O'Donnell and Pearson.

    I would hope not, but reportedly been some english clubs interested as well so hopefully we get it sorted quick style.

    Every good goalscorer we signed from Motherwell worked out great McBride, Deans, McClair, Walker and McDonald.

    All of them actually managed to score over 30 goals in a season for us at least once.

    Excellent news. Glad we didn't * about after the initial bid was rejected. Perhaps a lesson learned from having our fingers burned with McGinn last year.

    If were signing turnbull, connell and interested in aribo and harper where do they fit?

    Surely henderson would go out on loan, kouassi?? Mulumbu released, bitton??

    Im all for signing players but we dont need to keep a bloated squad.

    Its embarrassing that they believe they could get £5 million for him. Celtics reported offer of £3 million plus add ons is very generous imo.

    They were probably hoping for a bidding war, but in reality Championship teams would see £3m too much of a gamble for a young Scottish player after his breakthrough season.

    Two real possibilities, a) were not interested in all those players b) you don't always get your 1st targets so have back ups scouted incase plan a goes * up.

    It's definitely generous but fair play to them and any other Scottish club's no getting their arses felt anymore..

    This will do a lot for them and probably get a full decent team for them off the back of this sale..

    19 and probably doesn't want to come down here yet. I'm just guessing but I reckon once we've came in he was probably set on coming..
