Speculation Thread

Well yes. 3 have been promoted from the academy and have been given first team contracts: Adam Brown, Declan Hughes and Mark Williams.

I'm happy with the state of the squad at the moment. I think we need 2 more signings, a right sided defender and a pacey forward player.

Caldwell and Mevlija (sp?) could be these two players.

That's great news

Whatever way you look at things we're shy of a CH unless Jim Goodwin moves there and then we don't really have cover for his position as psychoholding-midfielder. Maybe Mo Yaqub has been earmarked for covering the CH role but I still think we need and expect us to sign another couple of players hopefully, but not necessarily, before the season starts.

I'd prefer if we brought in another defender/defensive midfielder and allowed Goodwin to concentrate on his coaching.

There is no way Caldwell is good enough, he scored 1 goal in 9 games on loan for Alloa last season, I think in his entire career he has only scored 3 goals. The centre-back I don't know much about, apart from I looked at Livi stats when he played for them and they seemed to concede a lot of goals in his games. He also spent over a year out following a car accident, so his fitness may be a worry.

IMO we need at least another 5 players - centre half, cover at right back, right mid, centre mid cover and up front. Anything less and I think we may struggle if we get injuries and suspensions.

Caldwell is 20 years old. How can you write anyone off at that age? If he offers some pace from the bench then that's good enough, it not it's not much too lose. Sure he won't be any worse than Caprice or the ilk.

The centre back has decent enough pedigree. Livi fans said he was a man mountain and would like him back. He's played for Maribor in the Champions League qualifiers and at u21 international level over there.

I'd be happy of we signed those 2 before the start of the season. That then gives us till the end of the window to identify areas of concern and and snap up a couple more loans to give the squad more padding.

I would say at least 4 players to come in

A right sided mid/def,centre half and 2 forwards.

Considering we got rid of our reserve forwards we need cover in this department as we struggled to score goals last season

The criticism of Reilly is justified. He's not been up to scratch. Young players aren't immune from criticism... Sometimes they're just not good enough ( or as good as expected to be ) and that happens.

Riley was poor last season, I wouldn't write him off as a failure though.

He could and perhaps will come good next season. Just like Caldwell.

If we sign Caldwell we will be the laughing stock of scottish football,pathetic doesnt do his abilities as a footballer justice.Centre back i havent seen so will reserve judgement ,but if T.C gives him a gig it will be a very sad day indeed

How many times have you seen caldwell ? zero,judging by your comments on the player.He wont be "coming good" he is total shite.I know you consider yourself an expert on everything but maybe you should keep quiet for once if you havent even watched the player in question,ive seen him about a dozen times,stands out for the wrong reasons
