    You could swap the 2 midfielders for Ntcham and Henderson, which is pretty decent back up.

    Come January I think it’ll be Perez and Gutman as back up full backs - which is why I doubt we’ll sign anyone. Maybe O’Donnell if Ralston goes on loan, which is defo an upgrade.

    In all honesty, those are 2 decent teams.

    Would rather proper first team full backs came in though, with an enforcer in midfield (heard Wanyama is available on loan).

    I didn't put Ntcham in as I still think someone will come in for him before the continental window closes on 2nd September!

    I think we need those gaps replaced and could also do with another young back-up centre-back to make up the numbers someone who could become first choice in a year or two.

    Could argue same with Jozo - so there’s no point doing it until after the window.

    U sure about the Americans? Could’ve swore it was jan....

    If we qualify for CL this year, and the Tierney deal goes through as expected, I would imagine we’ll have more cash in the bank than at any point in our history.

    The playing squad however, is the weakest it’s been since Deila, and arguably worse player for player. That is simply unacceptable.

    They still won’t get work permits. Am sure Gutman is to end of 2020 MLS season so potentially next November for him

    Okoflex for the wing spot. Hes ready as third choice surely . When we need experience Hayes, when we can play youth okoflex

    A left-back and we are strong in all positions although could do with a defensive midfielder but most likely if any midfielder comes in it will be Turnbull probably in January. Could maybe move Morgan out on loan and bring in a left-winger as well if Sinclair is out of the picture.

    Something like this could be interesting domestically.

    Forster
    Hatem, Julien, Ajer
    Bauer, Christie, McGregor, Boli
    Forrest, Eddy, Johnston
    It would allow Boli cover as we know he sucks defensively and he looks more like a Wing Back than a Full Back.

    It's definitely looking a lot better..

    This is why qualification and this summer has been frustrating because all we needed was another little push to breeze past Cluj...although I accept we should've done them regardless..

    Went from looking flaky in the goalkeeper positions to having by far the strongest selection in the league for me..

    We know we'll 100% get a left back. I'm holding my council just now though until we see who it is. If it's Meling we're in good shape..

    Mendy would be ideal. The other versatile boy from Leicester looks good but maybe no as good..

    Up top we're fine now. Edouard is a proper striker instead of off the left (although I still like him there and as a front 2 with the right partner), playing off striker and with Bayo making an impression, Griff chipping in...we're ok. Especially with a very good young striker who's quick and physically imposing in Afolabi that can step up and I don't think it would trouble us in many domestic game's..

    Rogic and Shved to come in properly at some point. Henderson, wee Dembele, Okoflex and McInroy can all get a shot if need be at points..

    Ajer will go back to centre half. We've got a couple of right backs so won't be as taxing on Elhamed and maybe he can go to centre half and the 6 if need be..

    Couple more additions and we've got a pretty flexible squad..

    Lots of dead wood gone and if you can shift

    Hendry
    Miller
    Ralston
    Hayes
    Morgan

    All on before Monday and get Meling and 1 other then it’s been a good window. Still need to remember Turnbull was a done deal bar his knee and I fully expect him to be a Celtic player (if he can prove his fitness) before we go to warm weather training In January.

    The first 3 will be gone I think..

    No sure we'll be able or will try to offload Hayes or Morgan..

    I'd stick Morgan in the reserves and rather replace him with Okoflex or Dembele everyday of the week..

    Turnbull will deffo be here in January if he recovers well. We'd have went and bought a goal scoring midfielder if the wasn't the case..

    Need a LB in now, looks like we'll be signing that Leicester player as competition for Johnston, will be disappointed not to have brought in another CDM this window but perhaps Lennon rates Eboue.
