    He said: "We are trying to get it down to the quality of player we want, and does he fit our profile with age and the attributes we want from a full-back.

    "They are difficult to find because we have been looking for a while. Ideally, we would like to bring two in. It's a slow process.

    "It's still very early. A lot of teams are just back and weighing up their squads. It's not as if you can do all your business right away. We need to have patience.

    Sick of the excuses tbh. We've been needing a new right back for a couple of years at least. Complete negligence if they don't have an extensive list of possible signings.

    In fact, it's complete negligence that it hasn't been sorted already.

    I agree but Rodgers has left Lennon in the * for certain positions and he’s sorting that * out

    It's tiresome listening to the same * every transfer window.

    The real excuse is our board are tight as * ...look after themselves and don't give a * about the fans.

    Is Robbie Deas still with us I’m sure he’s played RB for the reserves aswell as CB he looked good out on loan last season

    We do need to get a move on with this, even if you appreciate the fact it is a slow process.

    Lenny has only been in charge a couple of months, he can hardly be blamed for the RB situation that's been going on for the last couple of years.

    Just wait till the end of the transfer window, see what happens.

    We tried to replace him with an €8m player at one of the top clubs at Europe. When everybody was convinced that having a manager of Brendan Rodgers quality would approach similar quality on the pitch.

    We then had to get rid of said managers deadwood who’s * up our scouting to a terrible extent.

    So new management, new people doing the recruitment. I’m glad to see people have that much faith in Lenny that he has a magic wand to fix all of that instantly.

    In reality he’s right though, we might be in competitive football now but most of Europe aren’t. We’re a month or so ahead.

    This is why this sort of business must be sorted in January. I don’t want a panic buy with no thought put into it, I want somebody in who will serve us for years to come and serve us well.

    Getting a bit ridiculous to be honest, We have a bad habit of trying to handicap ourselves by not identifying attainable targets and getting the transfers done quckly.

    Have a sneaky suspicion we are going to end up with a cheap/* option and struggle throughout the season because of it.

    Will be chuffed to bit's to be proven wrong but I will not hold my breeath

    I'm not blaming him. I'm blaming the club.

    We've been hearing the same * for too long now. Jullien was apparently on our list from well before Lenny arrived so it's not like we had to start from scratch with scouting when he took over. Should have a right back in by now. It's beyond a joke how long it's taking us to find and sign one.

    I understand your frustration but we're just goin to have to give the new mob time, Celtic calibre RB's don't grow on tree's and ones that are available (even at a price) even less so.

    The tranfer window has been pretty decent so far, Lenny said we need to be patient on the RB situ, I trust him on that.

    Do you never tire of making excuses for him? He has had almost five months to identify a right-back. How much longer does he need? Other managers can identify targets in the intervening time between transfer windows.

    (Spare me the spiel about how everyone but Lennon is to blame; I can fill in the blanks for myself.)

    It is imperative that we sign at least one right-back before the third qualifying round at the latest. ("But van Dijk played poorly against Shakhter Karagandy": another excuse.)

    If we fail to do so, and suffer the consequences, the blame will lie with the current set-up - not Rodgers, not Congerton.

    We need a right back for the next 2 season don't care about the season after as that it will take care of itself when that time comes so see this needs to be the right age bullshit doesn't wash with me if he's good and 29 or 30 sign him

    First three months were all about concentrating on getting the job and securing the treble... ....job done.

    Next year or two will be dedicated to building a team, and it will happen, just watch.

    I agree, we absolutely should make sure we get the right player in..

    But, we should have had at least one RB in by now, we’ve had enough time.
