What is? Keeping McGrath? As someone wrote on the BBC (I think it was) - keeping him would be the best transfer news they could ask for.

So keeping the penalty taker and no signing anybody else apart from Wolves reserve isn't tin-pot? And letting Cammy go....Smisa🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

Tinpot through and through Ali Mccann and Jason Kerr leave for £1.2 million and £600,000.

We were willing to sell Mcgrath for £300,000 and 2 Hibs cast offs so much for not letting players go on the cheap.

As for letting Cammy go the mind boggles.

A free weekend means there's still time to get a couple of players in with pace . I thought we would have got that from the loan market.  Happy with McGrath staying . If we are going to persevere with three at the back I would prefer McCarthy,  Dunne and Shaunessey to be the first choice three as their height is a goal threat .

Isma won't be coming.

Brexit has more or less f**ked our chances of signing foreign players - Motherwell and St. Johnstone have gone through work permit nightmares trying to get players in from foreign countries who are on anything less than a fortune.

The rich clubs will continue to have their pick, those of us less fortunate are left with the talent pool within Scotland and UK shores.

Cammy is a bit part squad player that screams Championship / bottom end Prem and has shown little if any progress in years.

The same could be said about Scott Allan and Drey Wright but we bent over to allow Hibs to dump their cast offs on us while St Johnstone took over £1 million pound for a player that is nowhere near as good as Mcgrath.

All the news reports I have seen state that Hibs botched the McGrath deal. Personally, I would rather the club didn't go out and just sign anybody in order to appease the fans.

We can sign free agents and have brought in some good players that way. Plus we retain McGrath. :) 

 

What I will say is that Dundee were a side I thought would struggle this season. If Griffiths plays to anywhere near his potential, he will score plenty of goals for them. I think it is a stronger league this season, but we have what it takes to stay up.

Are you ever right? 😂

It's a speculation thread, it's commenting on what people are speculating about. Sorry I ruined one of your "best" moments in life (as sad as that is) by pointing out it didn't happen but there's no need to get upset and lash out. :D

Just my take on it. But last season was pretty good finish and we should really have looked to build attacking options on to it.

What we lost from last season and have found replacements for:
LWB - Mason = Tanser
CM Doyle-Hayes = Ronan
ST - Obika = Main

We also brought in Power. Not sure if that was to take the place of Sheron/Foley as that I feel is the position Jim wanted them in to play.

Kiltie might have been brought in as a back up if McGrath left, but hasn't.

Players we are yet to replace:
LM Durmas
RM/LM - Connolly
ST/RM - Quaner/Morias

We then needed maybe 3 more in to build on last season's form, but to either fit this system or to allow the ability to change it up.

Needs not met:
* Pace/Creativity - LWB/LM/LW
* Pace/Creativity - RWB/RM/RW
* either/or Tall/Strong/Fast Striker

Can these be met in the free agent market and with only Scottish, English, NI, Welsh or RoI players due to Brexit? Who knows.

The current perma crocked version of Scott Allan is still a better player than Cammy will ever be. He's bang average and not worth getting frothing over regardless of where he goes.

bottom end Prem

What exactly are we and will possibly continue to be with the evident imbalance in the squad players square pegs round holes syndrome. No width no pace easy to match up and out of games. The hoof ball doesnt work and probably doesnt even work in amateur football now. My sons 11s  team dont even do that. To let a player go out on loan to a prem rival as it stands when they pull in £1mill for selling a player in the same area of the park is just plain mental. The club seems to be drifting so far away from the so called feel good factor of a few months ago.

Yes..Hibs didn’t do what was needed , whatever you think of the deal. Not Saints

McGrath, who yesterday was worth about £250K plus two players, today is worth hee-haw.  He'll probably sign a pre-contract with Aberdeen in January and be away then for buttons
