    For some reason I can’t see Shved making it here under Lennon, just with his comments regarding him.

    Maybe a loan will do him the world of good cause he needs game time.

    The others I would happily let leave.

    They could have been brought in when the English window shut, not wait 2-3 weeks after that. Certainly with Forster and Bauer. It's unlikely either of them would be sold outside of England, especially Forster, so we would be one of their few options for offloading them. Elyanoussi may have had clubs on the continent willing to buy or loan though, so I can see why that one might take longer.

    Had all 3 been brought in around the 8th of August there would probably be a much better feeling amongst many fans than there has been recently, although even then would have been too late to play against Cluj, so maybe not...

    Shved will come into it when he’s settled.

    Why would Bauer be unlikey, out of interest? Guys played his best football outwith England, smart money would have been back to Russia.

    Money mainly. English prices and wages are higher than most countries on the continent pay, and for a guy that has barely played for 2 years I don't think many would take a chance.

    The temporary nature of a few of our deals, leaves us in the same position next Summer.

    I think he is class, there is a cracking player there but I’ve got a feeling that Lennon doesn’t like him.

    Won’t be nearly as bad as this summer was.

    We apparently have the option to buy 2 of the 3 so we might not need to address RB or GK next year.

    LW - Johnston will still be here, as will Morgan. Okoflex should be looking to make his mark this year or next too.

    Aye, don’t get me wrong some players are only available to us on loan as we can’t afford them and I’m delighted to add Forster & Elyonoussi..

    But, we could be looking at a RB, GK, DM in the next two windows, not to mention if we lose the likes of Édouard or McGregor..

    My main point is that we never seem properly prepared and until we appoint a DOF, I can’t see it changing... every window is the same haphazard approach and although I welcome the added quality they are a short term fix.

    He's got what looks like great talent, but I think our coaches might think he's too slight for the role. Wouldn't surprise me to see him bulked up a bit and then dropped in.

    *, sad realities of Scottish football. He's gonna get a skelp every game he plays, with * all support from the refs. He'll be injured in no time. Should be subbing on though, soon enough

    Unless Morgan gets injured I can’t see him getting game time, for some reason Morgan gets game time.
