Don't think we can afford to let any of them go. We haven't improved on last season. 

Brophy and Main are a significant upgrade on the forwards we had last year.

I also think that Power is a significant upgrade in midfield and Tanser has been impressive at wing back too.

Defence wise I agree.

I still think we will need all 4 strikers to get goals as none of them are prolific. On the plus side, Main certainly links well with Brophy and that partnership looked good in spells against Dundee - particularly when chasing long balls. Power in and JDH out. Not sure that's a marked improvement. I don't think we have replaced  Ilkay's skills and Connolly's speed. Tanser does look an excellent signing at wing back  but we now look frail defensively  Back 3 look exposed at times and error prone  Henderson is struggling defensively and Tait just looks to be well off form. I think we need more in and no- one out.

And Kiltie who is never premier quality is a poor signing also. Only Tanser is decent signing...long way short the squad. Carrying a lot of passengers like McAllister for one..

On showings so far it’s hard to disagree with any of that.

Brophy - Anonymous

Kiltie - Anonymous

Main - At least he’s been involved and causes teams some level of problems, but his lack of composure in front of goal is unparalleled at this level.

Tanser - Of the more offensive newcomers he is the one beacon of light. Unfortunately to date, most of the dangerous balls he’s played into the box have been to the aforementioned dumplings. 
On signings generally though, I’d say Dunne and Power have been “decent” too.

Would really like to see Greg Stewart inbound as believe he is the type of player that we need. May need to stretch the coffers but was the acquisition I was really hoping for before transfer season. Also would be nice if we can stop playing hoofball as incredibly difficult to watch lower league tactics particularly against big solid defenders. If we can't play through midfield then we have a serious problem.

Greg Stewart is exactlly the type of player we need. He certainly brought out the best in Brophy

That’s a very good point , in the half season Brophy and Stewart played together Brophy netted 9 goals ( Stewart Got 8 )  . When Stewart loan ended , Brophy only scored another 3 goals….. two of them from the penalty spot .!

My Kilmarnock supporting workmate said the same when Brophy signed that since Stewart left he hadn't been the same player.

Stewart played poorly in a poor Aberdeen team, Hearts have Mckay-Steven he will probably end up at Hibs if he leaves this window.

Can't see him wanting to continue his career at a St Mirren, Motherwell or Dundee.

He's a free agent and he's 31 , he has played less than 100 games over the last 5 seasons. If he wants to finish his career playing regularly he's going to have to look at all offers !

Must admit I didn’t realise he was that old. Thought he was still mid to late 20s.

Yeah suppose his stint down south and Rangers should have made him financially secure just depends what sort of challenge he wants in the years he has left he could pretty much pick the other 10 teams outwith the ugly sisters might just come down to non footballing things (family, schools, preferred area to live etc) where he ends up.
