    There's plenty out there far better than what we currently have. Plenty that would be well within our budget.

    Bartolec is one a few people had suggested a while ago and he may have been linked with us. Signed for Copenhagen a few weeks ago so that's him out the picture. Gumny is another one. Stojanovic at Dinamo Zagreb another.

    There's a number of these guys on the continent who would be affordable and most likely want to come here. Yet we seem to be shopping in England for right backs.

    Just don't use am RB, problem solved. Invent a new formation that plays to our squad, by allowing us to play 3 LMs and two CAMs. Baffle the opposition.

    One thing that's pleasing about that quote is that he says we want 2.

    Still. Doesn't excuse not having at least one in by now. It should have been our priority position going into this window.

    We are now playing a dangerous game in europe.

    5 months eh? I was under the impression he wasn’t actually given the job until about 6 weeks ago. The more ye know man.

    Lenny’s fault we haven’t replaced our right back for 2 years. Whilst he was Hibs manager.

    Least we are after 2, although it's been hard enough trying to get one in the door

    Don’t shoot me but I’d take Matthews on a free at this stage and after Gumny as our 1st choice

    Sorry, thought that was an advertisement.

    It could be Hammond has his own ideas/network to tap into and targets have been reasssed from the 01/07..

    We took a chance going to Sarajevo without a proper option and got away with it.

    We need one in for the next qualifier, even tho it may look like an easier tie the player needs to bed in and get used to playing for us. We shouldn't have players making their debut in the latter two rounds of qualifying.

    If he identified no targets in that period, he should never have been given the job; in fact, he should be sacked.

    And he managed to do it in his first spell, despite being interim manager:

    "But, but... everything is different now. This person and that person is to blame."

    I never said that, so your staunch defence of Lennon is unnecessary.

    Spend big on one RB and accept Ralston for backup. He can do a job against most Scottish sides.

    Do we all feel that assuming we get by Sarajevo, we will beat this Macedonian mob?

    Not entirely Lennon's fault. He just plays a small part in the transfer process.

    It is getting a bit pathetic now. I was a bit more positive after getting Mbombo and Julien in, but getting a RB in for the next round or two of qualifiers is critical. If we don't and we're pumped out as a result we only have ourselves to blame. Ralston isn't even close to being good enough.

    And what if the main RB gets injured and we need to play European games with Ralston. I'm not giving up on him btw, would loan him to another SPL side.. But we absolutely need two players of a certain quality.

    Is he beyond reproach for the next two years, then?

    They look worse than Sarajevo, lost 4-0 to TNS last year, doesn't mean we should go into it without a RB mind you.

    It's hard for me to criticise when I don't know the details of what has been attempted. I'd rather give people the benefit of the doubt and I'm confident that they aren't just sitting around twiddling their thumbs.
