    Just feel there will be one more big signing in the CCV, Jota price range.

    I find the mooy signing a bit worrying in so much does this mean we're not going to sign a quality cdm - * hope not because a cdm and cb are needed -dont have anything against mooy but he is not a cdm

    We don’t really need a defensive midfield player against 10/11 teams in our league or cups. Maybe need one against the huns, though we have played them off the park without one. Need one for Champions League though. So in total 10 out of 50 odd games tops. Must be hard to justify the outlay on that or attract one that’s only needed for a fraction of our games.

    You could argue when we go to tough away grounds like Livingston, Aberdeen, Hearts abd Hibs etc, you need one to play there and give us a bit of dig in the midfield.

    We've also been bullied by Lundstram.

    I sort of understand why people say an out and out defensive midfielder isn't necessary in a lot of our domestic games. But Wanyama started every game for us when he was fit and we were better off for it. Just because someone is defensively sound doesn't mean they can't offer anything on the ball.

    I mean, I think the complaints are justified. Are some over the top? Of course, but it's incredibly lazy scouting from us.

    Jenz is a player that was linked to us last year, and has had a poor season at Lorient. Mooy isn't the type of 6 we've been crying out for, and wouldn't be near us if he wasn't known to the manager.

    Now, I want to go on about that last point "Known to the manager". In most, if not all, instances, it's been positive with Ange, but he shouldn't be doing all of the scouting, that should be Lawell's job, who has, at best, scouted Bernabei.

    I'm still over-all happy with the window so far, but the last few days have definitely been a downer.

    Agree with some of that but Scottish football was way better when Wanyama was here, 10 of the teams are garbage now. The huns are decent but we are better. Will a defensive midfield player get us through the CL? Not sure it will. Would love a hard * in midfield but it isn’t needed for the vast majority of our games that’s the problem attracting one and committing the outlay. Actually a lot of fans would moan like * if we played a defensive midfield player against Motherwell and * like that.

    Was it? Think Scottish football has been dross for years tbh. Regardless, when he was here we were still miles ahead of the rest of the league, same as now (huns aside).

    I agree that a defensive mid isn't going to make a huge difference in the CL, unless we play more defensive football. But it could be massive for us in the EL if we end up there.

    Don’t disagree, just can see why it may be a problem getting one. Obviously Scottish football has been a low standard for decades, but just feel the 10 in the league now are worse than ever.

    The board must be loving the ‘trust Ange’ patter. It’s the new ‘we’re just waiting to see if we qualify before spending’ fallacy.

    Youve been dying to moan. You were giving it the Lawwells back patter before we signed Jota

    Fair enough, the board got him in - brilliant.

    However, I refuse to believe Mooy and this Lenz dud are even in the top 10 on Ange’s list.

    Wouldn’t surprise me at all if the board reigned the budget in after seeing the dross Sevco are signing.

    Am not exactly excited by the idea of Mooy either but I thinks that's mainly down the fact we got hyped about potential signing of Souza. Don't know much about this Mooy but I'd imagine he will be better than McCarthy and idegeuci from what I seen so far. If he is better than those 2 and is only here to cover a year then maybe isnt a terrible move. Just hope Mooy is in addition to the two signings Ange mentioned earlier in the week as opposed to part of the two signings.

    Still hoping the window has one more signing of real quality, either in the CB or DM position.

    Maybe our budget was spent on jota and CCV, souza was only rumours. rest will be filled with loans and free transfers.

    Considering both were with us already last season and we have lost rogic and Bitton. Will we be going into the new season stronger?
