    If Lennon does stay on as manager (would prefer someone else but let's see how the season ends) i'd trust him to sort out the defence, he was good with defensive signings, under him we got

    Izaguirre
    Lustig
    Wilson
    Van Dijk
    Wanyama

    who were all excellent additions, and even then, guys like Matthews/Mulgrew were still good players for us. Obviously a few duffers like Mouyokolo (risk free signing) Ambrose (who was good to begin with), Gershon, Rogne, Kaddouri etc were poor but i think he would improve us there.

    I have a feeling it was Toljan and Congerton is incapable of finding anycunt capable as back up.

    I reckon we're signing or wanting that Gumny in..

    Toljan won't be back. Lenny doesn't rate him..

    Aye, which is why I think we’ve probably not got one in mind. It’s more along the lines of what we’ve been like in the last few years. If Lenny hasn’t got the job I doubt we’ve even thought about player acquisition in the summer.

    That wouldn't surprise me with Congerton considering no Dembele or Boyata replacements lined up :56:

    Pretty much what why I think so mate, we’ve not shown any forward planning since Lenny and Park was here.

    Lenny has mentioned he’s been involved with discussions regarding our business come the summer.

    “I had a meeting with Peter and Lee Congerton on Wednesday so there are plans in place already,” revealed Lennon. “There are positions identified and some players identified and there is a plan going forward so it is business as usual as far as I am concerned and until I am told otherwise.’

    I think we’ll be after Gumny for RB.

    I’m not saying they didn’t mate but it was always with a purpose in mind, it was always some sort of plan even if it didn’t work out (and lets be honest, with the markets we’re in that will happen).

    Ronny went real scattergun and quite desperate but I think he got backed even less than Lenny did.

    Brendan just went after what he fancied with not much thought put further down the line and by this January he gave up all pretense that he was even putting the slightest effort of thinking beyond the end of the season.

    Always going to happen based on the level we're looking at.

    I think on the whole they done exceptionally well to uncover the players they did and not just your gems like Wanyama, Van Dijk, Hooper etc.

    Some of the Bosmans/nominal fees they managed to find and entice, Ledley, Matthews, Lustig, Mulgrew, Commons.

    The rat was granted much more leniency in terms of autonomy, transfer fee spend and overall wage budget yet delivered so much less than Lennon & Park.

    No doubt he made mistakes. Moreso towards the end.

    Calling Rogne a duffer is extremely harsh

    Especially saying he was because Lenny signed him... when it was Mowbray.
