    It might be a certainty....wit?

    Personally can't see Benko returning. Sure he was getting his fitness up with the u23s, nothing else.

    Sorry will believe it when I see it, Lennons been too "inconsistent" in his transfer update briefings. Id rather he said, well thats yer lot, we get on with what we've got..... at least he would be honest.

    Zero chance. At best, Taylor and a loan

    If Lennon doesn't fulfill his signings "promises" and we are exposed, then he has to carry the can

    Wish he would just shut the * up.

    He's genuinely embarrassing himself and the fans right now.

    His comments after games such as "team selection made no difference" and the endless bullshit of potential signings at various made up timescales is laughable.

    It's the * we have been laughing at the Huns for years now, he's in the door one transfer window and there is already a book you could write on the bullshit nonsense he has spouted.

    Guys a club legend, but * me just shut up.

    If it is,you can bet your * * the board have known about it for weeks, months even.

    Their usual, wait till the last day to announce a big loan signing to try and end on a positive, while saving a few weeks on his wage because they reckoned Europe was fine and the fans will keep blindly handing over money.

    Any body think lenny maybe actual trying to bring in players but these targets arent to pushed to be playing in our league and this may be whats making it difficult to bring players in?

    Been * poor for a long time, and we managed to bring in players with far less money than we have now. We don't invest enough in transfers is the long and short of it.

    It always will be that’s why UCL football was crucial!

    Guys like Edouard, Ntcham and Sinclair ain’t here to play up Dingwall or Hamilton twice a year they want to be testing themselves against the best the champions league can throw.

    You seen Edouard last week after the final whistle bigman was distraught! Wouldn’t surprise me if Lille come in for him before the window closes. They have watched Jozo and Édouard on more than one occasion over the last 6-8 months!

    Aye * it, may as well just sign spfl calibre players like Jordan Jones and gregg Stewart?

    We have far more to offer than that, and expecting more isn't a bad thing. The day we settle for that level of * is the day the likes of Aberdeen actually could win a league title.

    Yes our league is not the best, yes almost every player in Europe will have eyes on playing in the EPL at some point, but we are a better standard than a lot of other leagues in Europe and we offer (should) champions League football, at a world renown club on the doorstep of the EPL, a club that is now looked upon as a place the EPL can feel fairly confident in signings players from...but not if we give up trying to get these sort of players.
    It will come with a wage higher than we may be comfortable with, but our wage cap (if it's there, they like to pretend it isn't at times) will at some point need to be increased. For over a decade now it's been limited to 25k unless you are massively proven it will go up a notch. In turn we then don't like to spend too much on a squad player, 12k ain't gonna cut it any more, gotta start accepting we need to bring in quality on 20k, rather than two or three hopefuls on 8-12k and pray we make a buck off them.

    As things stand we are in a * league(regardless of there being leagues worst than ours)we dont have CL football and we will not being increasing our spending to bring in better quality players(defo without Cl money) so the best we have to offer is maybe a wage increase for some players and maybe EL football ,lets be honest for a professional footballer looking to play at the higest level and getting paid a bundle of cash its not very tempting.

    Thats why i think that could be an issue that some may be overlooking when they are not happy with lennon saying hes looking at 3/4 players.
