    Thought I heard something about a bout of vomiting bug hitting the entire squad... Or did I mishear/dreamed up that?

    Picked Benkovic but the only one I think we can realistically sign is Toljan. Would need to make him our highest earner but, with some sort of buy back clause, I think it's possible.

    Here's a question, would you sign one of these of your choice if it meant we lost Callum McGregor. Not for me without doubt..and that is probably the biggest compliment I could pay Callum at the moment.

    * difficult. I just think Benkovic is the most important. I’d take any one of them staying though. Weah might have the highest ceiling.

    If WBA get promoted I think we could land Burke for a reasonable price 6-7m.

    Benkovic.

    Although I think Burke would be possibly the only one we have a realistic chance of signing and you'd probably get more time from him being Scottish.... . .. kind of.

    Since none of them would be a direct replacement, absolutely not, McGregor is far to critical for our shape in midfield to lose just to sign anyone of the above players mentioned.

    I'm starting to warm to the idea that McGregor could well be our new and improved Brown, taking over the captaincy and running things in midfield. As much as I would like KT to be captain I got feeling it could well end up being McGregor.

    Totally different from Brown, becoming excellent in that midfield and orchestrating so much, but Brown just bosses it, I don't have a problem with CalMac defensively as I don't think that's his game, so I don't want to be too critical when I say he seems to be easily brushed aside on strength. Brown just can be a machine at bullying people.

    Voted Benkovic , but out of Burke,Weah , Toljan and Benkovic think we'll get at least 2 of them back for next season either loan or push for a permanent on 1.
