So what a way to begin Autumn, one of discontent for a Newco that has again spent a summer listening to its own delusion. 

The facts are we lead the Premiership after a dominant month domestically, indeed, save 15 minutes vs Cluj we have been amazing this season.

But of course, those 15 minutes cost us close to 30 million pounds so that pain won’t be easily forgotten.

To make sure we do not have a recurring trauma, we must give Lennon the funds he needs to bring home the 9.

With makeshift Centre Half Nir Biton injured and with Ajer unavailable we must buy another, especially with Hendry away to Killie.

McKenna remains an option with no bids forthcoming and a transfer request pending, Aberdeen would be foolish to turn down 4-5 million with add ons and that is well within our business budget.

Taylor and McKenna would represent the two most salable assets in the SPFL in the exact positions we require reinforcements.

Now is the time to back the gaffer and give him no excuses, the 9 is there for us to take, time we invested and did do.
