Hammill's impact was to get injured and flatter to deceive for about 5 or 6 weeks before getting started. We no longer have the luxury to carry that sort of a start.

 

I'd really rather avoid we were looking about the FT market for guys like Stefan Scougall who gradually get less and less fit as the weeks drift by.

Me too.   But there may well be some who are better than him.

There is always a chance with whoever comes in that they will take some time to get up and running.

This is the issue with our current circumstances 8 new faces - but Dee are in the same boat with 9 - 2 of which are injured already.  :ph34r:

He scored twice on his 3rd start after coming back from injury (which was unforeseen and hardly his fault)!

I'll take the luxury of that sort of start anytime!

B&W Twitter saying there is a wee bit of good news.  Work that one out if you can.

Based on what? You have no idea what is going on behind the scenes at the club. We struggle to compete financially with most top clubs and this is the Jan window where it is far more difficult to get players in and there is less to attract.  For all we know the management have been working flat out to bring their targets in but have been unsuccessful. Remember some on here have said it's best for the club not to publicly say who they are attempting to get in having been burnt in the past by another club offering more.

Claiming the club is a joke and deserve to go down just adds to your constant negative postings.  

well said Ned ...scrumdiddlyumptious  in fact.:lol:

Take your point - I did ask the question  :rolleyes:

Curran is out injured with a hamstring issue I believe  . .  but out of the 9 they have brought in, only these 2 , is a good thing. :cheers

Further though,  if we get or had got who we targeted then I think we would not be even counting these 2 either.  :spud6

Who knows who we will pick up in the next few hours and post window - another guy with the impact of Hammill and we will all cheer up a lot. :guinness

Worry not Posters.

OK knows what he is doing and so does the board. For those who worried about us being top heavy off the field we are now 1 down there. Job done and some compo.

On the field. Let's be patient.

Will it help if I worry?

I think not.

 

I am not worried - just wish we had em in the door. I think we will get other/(s) in but the basis of a decent team are already here.  :D

Let's not kid ourselves - we ain't gonna win every 2nd game. We just need 1 win more that Dee and the Hammer throwers. Beating them both twice would do it . . .

Picking up other points would be a bonus and give us a comfort zone in planning for next season :turtle

Spot on. Pragmatic. It's the Lion theory. If there are 3 people running from a Lion then I only need to run faster than the two others. .not the Lion. So no need to fear relegation. 

Agree that we now have the basis of a decent team.

If I'm being chased by a lion, relegation is the last thing I'll be worrying about.
