    1 round? Who gets chosen to be in that one round? What about all the other teams that have also deservedly qualifies from their own leagues? Can’t see 1 round happening because how do you determine who deserves it more? Why should a team from Estonia,Bulgaria, Finland etc. Miss out on the CL just because they enter before the final round. If anything, that 1 round would mean we don’t get in at all!! As we enter a few rounds before the final round

    Benkovic coming in the other direction plus cash according to Twitter.

    Certainly a deal that would get my vote.

    Doubt it

    I'm sure there were rumours about Benkovic faking injuries and that's why Lennon never played him.

    He might be a better player than Ajer but hes not got his attitude or desire

    Linked with Alexsander Vukotic. 24 year old..

    Giant left sided centre half from relegated Waasland-Beveren..

    He looks very good on the ball. Strong. Great in the air and strong..

    No sure how quick he is but he looks pretty decent from the reel I've just watched. Similar to Jullien actually..

    Again hard to judge from you tube but looks decent if we offered them the Kouassi cash could be a goer?

    That's good news about Kouassi, delighted to get him off the books-and command a fee also.

    Don't agree, way too weak in the air, and no spring or aggression.

    I'd say those are more mental attributes.

    He's tall, athletic, tenacious.

    His aerial game needs improvement in both boxes but that can be coached. As does his decision-making at times.

    He's not as good as he thinks he is.

    If we get anywhere near the £20-25m being touted then personally I think well have won a watch.

    Tierney was always going to be a tough ask to replace. Boli isn't for me but I think there's a decent LB in Taylor (albeit not to Tierney standard)

    Poor signings in the past shouldn't stop us from selling in future, it's a huge part of our club.

    I trust that if we sell Ajer for £20m-ish and give Lennon half of that, that we'll come out stronger at the end of the window. Lennon has a decent record at signing CBs. We got Julien for £2m less than Fulham offered us for Boyata and he's levels above

    I'm struggling to think of decent replacements we signed for players weve sold for big money.

    Eddie for dembele?

    I know he was here at the same time, but I think his signing was to replace dembele as he was gaining lots of interest.

    You're conflating 2 things though.

    If we've got good fees for players historically but been poor at replacing them then the solution is surely to improve our recruitment as that's where the issue lies?

    Where previously the board was banking £13m for Van Dijk and then handing Deila 1/10th of that on his replacement Boyata, they are now seeing the difference in spending for a bit of quality in recent seasons eg. Edouard and Julien.

    Even despite the downgrade we could've banked a £7.5m profit on Boyata had the rat not spat the dummy.

    We're still at an early stage in devel our 'buy talent, develop, sell-on then replace' model and there's certainly room for improvement in places but given the success both on and off the park we're having with it, we'd be mental to abandon it.

    Lennon sold McGeady for £9m and it funded a complete overhaul of the squad and we ended up far stronger for it. I have every faith he'll do it again.

    Has the transfer window even been decided?
