    Mikey Johnston will provide some but its unfair to put that much pressure on him. We will need to go into the market.

    Definitely but he has stood up at massive times for us, scored the most and set up the most over the course of the Treble Treble. Having that responsibility largely fall to Mikey is unfair at this stage I think.

    * me, another big earner could be away. We really are downgrading. Always thought his new contract was a strange one right enough. His stats are unreal for us but based on performances if I was calmac or Forrest or Tierney it would probably * me off that he was highest earner

    Aye, there’s Mikey, Morgan and Arzani.

    Forrest can play there if Shved proves as good as we think as well (think Lenny prefers him there as well tbh)

    Selling someone who scores that amount of goals from the wing would be criminal.

    We won't be replacing him.

    What is Sinclair on over 30 grand a week. 2.5 mill as well that frees up a fair bit with the rest that have gone..

    Lenny has spoken about a wow factor/bums off seats type player so could be a 10/left winger brought in..

    He goes. Morgan will go out on loan I'd imagine. We had Weah and Burke last year also...so you'd imagine we'd add another body..

    Hope not.

    Shouldn't play anywhere other than on the right.

    Maybe the thinking is that guys like Johnston and Shved can be long term replacements. IMO Johnston is ready now and could, if given his chance could be a 10+ goals a season. Add to that the likes of Christie,Jamesie and Eddy then we should be fine.

    He can play there and in the 10 but I'd still much rather a proper 10/left winger come on to compete with Johnston..

    Still prefer him much more on the right..

    Yeah he has made a terrific contribution and itll be sad to see him go but I'd be lying if I think the time isn't right. It's alot for the other guys to take on but Lenny must think theyre upto the task

    Can see us buying a left sided forward.

    It's been up for a good while for me..

    I know his stats need replacing but think we're a much better side when he isn't playing..

    Add another good pacey left winger/10/forward or whatever he is with no fear factor and Johnston...then we're better off..

    I am the same about this as how I feel about his performance last season. Don’t know either way. You think he will free up a big wage and get a few mill pocket change. When he played he showed glimpses during games of exactly what he could do but more often just ran into dead alleys and first or last man. And then he’d score and pull you out of a hole. Definitely not a lazy player as he is always on the move but missing that first touch to excel. He was untouchable in his first season and he has it but his head has been down for a while. Hope he is in a good place with his family and outside life.

    Yeah he has. I’m not sold on Morgan just yet.

    Think it's a case of Shved being injured and just in. Arzani no being back and basically still in pre season..

    Forrest/Shved
    Johnston/Arzani

    There's Boli, Edouard, Wee Dembele, Hayes etc that can all cover there as well..

    Sign someone that can play both side's of quality. Lenny has shown he wants versatility in also..

    Don't think he features much when we get everyone we want in..

    Same mate..

    Played well when he came on in Sarajevo but still lacks a bit of quality, genuine pace and strength for me..

    Whips a lot of crosses in but mostly to no *..

    A loan to a top 6 spl side would be best for us..
