Hope everyone had a good weekend.
Not sure how many people had a chance to watch Dom and Ange in their first press conference on Friday. I was hugely impressed with both, especially Dom McKay who answered everything articulately and not in an evasive manner that Lawwell used to do. He also made it clear that Ange was his appointment, he's clearly been fond of him as a coach for some time given the time he spent in Japan and Australia.
Ange himself is growing on me with every passing inteview, clip of training and his whole demeanor. I'm seeing a guy with the passion and hardline stance needed to get the club back on the road to success but more importantly, he is clearly a guy who loves to get stuck in on the training ground.
Given Neil Lennon spent half the season taking snus and going back inside for a coffee every 5 mins to sort his hangover out, this is a welcome boost.
Onto players in and out, Jack Hendry left the club over the weekend for €2 million. Great news we managed to double our money for someone as poor as he is.
It's looking likely we'll complete the signing of Mario Vuskovic for €5 million in the next 24/48 hours. Very impressed with this, ticks all the boxes and someone who could be ideal to play alongside Julien. We still need another 1 CB to come in as back up with Leo Hjlede as the other back up.
No other real rumours which is a concern given we need another 4 or 5 big signings to be ready.
Either way, i've got the buzz back after that shambles last season and looking forward to the pre season games over the next few weeks.
Up the Ange.
