We've missed Davis, Magennis & Morgan - 3 of our best players.

If we get in the boy Johnston then he may well be the guy who can replace Morgan. Magennis is still here and Kpekawa shows real potential to replace Davis - and not be injured half the season.

I think we will be okay.

Even with Morgan, Magennis and Davis we struggled at times. Think Dunfermline away, Morton away, Livi away, Aberdeen away. It was clear at the end of the season that we probably needed a whole new team to compete. I would say we need the replacement for Morgan and Davis, Magennis back and more quality players on top of that to have a decent chance in the premier.

Yeh, totally agree.

Without Morgan I doubt we'd even have made the play offs. The squad that Ross left, minus Morgan, was nowhere near good enough to survive in the top flight. But just one or two players can sometimes make all the difference.

Magennis and Davis were injured for the first two games mentioned & Stelios (now gone) had a mare in the Aberdeen game. 

Going by JRs comments at the end of last season 7-9 players were required so by my calculations we still need (have the cash for?) an additional 3-5 players (net).

Quality - it's in the lap of Stubbsy!

I think people have rose tinted specs when it comes to Morgan, as soon as he put pen to paper with the beggars he was largely missing for us and only played in fits / starts.

As we are all saying this team needs major investment to compete. Currently they wouldn’t beat Hamilton or Livi. They are one paces and lack a striker. I really do think that with two weeks till kick off we should have more players in by now. 


In a nutshell.

Fast Striker, sitting midfielder, fast creative mid fielder, fast winger, a fast right back, a back up goalie and big Gary back in the starting 11.

When he recovers from injury?

Unfortunately his injury record has had some bearing on his current standing.

I'd say we need a couple of forwards - one target man and one quick winger/attacker; another McGinn type midfielder; A centre half and a full back that can play both LB and RB.

Oh aye and none of them are allowed to be shite!:lol:

Wish we had a 20 goal striker, been a while since we had one of them!

Every team in this league wishes that they had a striker that could score 20 goals in the premiership.:wink:
