    One of our first team midfielders are definitely leaving, one of JacobKnows "1st Picks" so will need to bring in someone half decent

    After this season brown will be 36. We all love broony but let's not kid ourselves at the same time. He cannot and will not last forever. McCarthy being 29 isn't exactly youthful either but might get a decent 5 years out of him. By which point brown will be 41! We need to start looking at what our future looks like aswel as the present.

    Personally I'd rather the minutes were given to connell , Robertson , soro as back up to McGregor and brown. Lennon is fairly conservative and uses a small pool of players for a lot of minutes. Can't see us really needing him

    Is that not what connell Robertson mcinroy and soro are there for? I appreciate your point but after the 10iar season I feel we need to be more proactive in giving opportunity to young players.

    Last area of priority currently which makes me sceptical.

    However, he’s a quality player and a Celtic fan and would be a natural ‘replacement’ for Brown after this season in terms of attributes.

    Calmac, Brown and McCarthy would never work in a 3 though so it seems completely pie in the sky. Logically.

    A yes from me,great player and attitude,Browns last full season and he’s got the ideal experience to fill the void along with Cal Mac.

    I don't disagree on the Brown point you make. However, I would rather we show some faith in the signings we've made. Soro shows a lot of promise for me, looks a bit of a loony mind. Connell for me looked like he could blossom into the complete midfielder.
    On another note this is what really frustrates me about Lennon. 4-1 up against Hamilton and he waits til the last 10 minutes to make changes. That was the ideal time to get 30 minutes for guys like Soro,Klimala and Dembele.

    Also a good point tbf. On the other hand perhaps these signings haven't developed the way we expected or hoped. One things for sure, when the day some we have to put someone in place of brown they have to be good enough to make a big contribution. I think we all accept we will probably never replace broony (he is one in a million), but it needs to be replaced with quality that's for sure

    Depends on the money. He would probably be an ideal replacement for Brown, if he could stay fit.

    I know his injuries but I'd love to bring him in..

    Only 30 in a few month's and was playing regular EPL football last season..

    He's one I was gutted to lose out on when he left Accies..

    Think he'd be a top signing. Good passer. Dig. Still has a bit of pace. Composed and experienced..

    Massive Tim also which is a bonus..

    Naw ! Injury prone and will demand high wages. I’d rather stick with what we’ve got and maybe get turnbull. He had his chance with us years ago and chose to go elsewhere

    Would definitely take McCarthy. Rogic will leave this summer, Ntcham most likely next and Brown will be 36. If he does come in we need to loan out Connell and Soro.
