    Almost impossible to tell. You have to hope we make some signings before then.

    Why would rogic be starting? He can’t last more than an hour and under the style Ange seems to play I just don’t see it.

    We still have about 4 weeks until we play in Europe, so we could have 5/6 signings by then. I know that’s unlikely and wishful thinking.

    From our current team though, I guess I’d go:

    Barkas

    Ralston, Jullien, Welsh, Taylor

    Soro, McGregor

    Forrest, Turnbull, Johnston

    Ajeti

    Assuming Edouard and Ajer are gone otherwise they replace Ajeti and Ralston.

    If Ajeti ends up starting a single game of Ange's "full on fast-paced high-intensity attacking football" then we've absolutely done him dirty :giggle1:

    Ajer and Eddy will still be in the squad for the first qualifier

    Who else starts? An out of shape griffiths? Assuming edouard is gone obviously. Maybe Bayo? Who supposedly might not be here either, might sign for Toulouse.

    Unless we sign someone it really has to Ajeti. I just don’t think Griffiths will get back to the condition he needs to get to.

    Just thinking about this, I’m not worried about Ajer because I reckon he’ll still give 100% but will Edouard even try?

    No chance mate. Not even a whisper of anything happening. Games in under 4 weeks.

    The club always does its transfer business as quietly as possible though, so I'm hoping we're making moves. To be honest, there's no chance we aren't, the numbers dictate that we have to. Whether we get enough signings over the line in time, we'll have to wait and see.

    I wouldn't play him. * him. I want both shipped out ASAP for entirely different reasons. Ajer because we could do with the cash to replace him and a couple of other positions and Eddy for the same reason but also because I don't actually want him to stay now. His attitude is reeking.

    They'll be doing it quietly as you say however, this time it'll be because many of us are reluctant to renew our season tickets because of the boards * ups and, if wind got out that they were signing the same level of mediocrity we have became used to over the last few seasons, then I reckon there would be even a bigger reluctance to renew. We can literally only hope and pray that the penny has dropped for our board and they put their hands in their filthy tory pockets and give our new man the funds needed to turn our club around.

    Aye we should be doing something, but I can’t see anything being done and ready in time for this game. Especially if there is players having to isolate coming into the country or that.

    Barkas
    Ralston Bitton Welsh Taylor
    Soro
    McGregor Turnbull
    Forrest Johnston
    Ajeti

    If we can get a right back and central defender over the next week we'll be in much better shape.

    Ange has said a couple of times in interviews that he's been working on the team and its needs from the moment he signed. That has to mean he's been dealing with players and their agents - both current and possible.

    I'd really hope to see some announcements in the next few days - but even then he's got to get them into his team and system. Time is very short indeed but there are at least a few practice matches coming up.

    Forgot we had lee O’Connor coming back from loan, maybe he’d be better than Ralston and give him a chance to prove himself.

    Maybe Ange will like what he sees with O'Connor and have him at RB. Hope Hjelde,Connell etc make good impressions. Dembele too. Ange might be the fearless type to really give the youth a chance.
