With Patrick Roberts back in the fold Celtic are, on paper at least, looking like having a very strong squad.
Not strong in terms of Bayern Munich or Paris St Germain but surely competitive enough to fancy our chances of edging the head-to-head with Anderlecht and picking up something from the home matches against the big hitters.
The return from injury of Eboue Kouassi should provide a boost at some stage while Olivier Ntcham looks a Champions League performer giving Brendan Rodgers the luxury of deciding whether Tom Rogic, Stuart Armstrong or Callum McGregor is best suited for the advanced midfielder role.
Defence is another matter entirely, highlighted by the recent glut of injuries.
While another striker would be nice before the transfer window closes if Moussa Dembele and Leigh Griffiths are both fit our priority must be in strengthening the defence.
Neither Dedryck Boyata or Erik Sviatchenko have really imposed themselves on the team while Jozo Simunovic is linked with a departure in every transfer window.
From a position of strength thanks to wise management and back to back Champions League campaigns there has rarely been a better time to go into the transfer market even allowing for the outrageous inflation down south.
Finding a defensive Ntcham or Dembele is a tall order but bringing in another Virgil van Dijk or the 2017 Simunovic would set the tone for the season and another term of spectacular progress.
