The club have made it clear that JJ is surplus to requirements and will be available for transfer . His place will be taken by Flareybob emoji6.png

 

Flareybob is the most reliable source on the forum, he is yet to get 1 wrong...

Not sure we need 2 more centre forwards. We only play with one up front! Kellerman is the attacking midfielder sorted.

Need a defensive midfielder IMO, another full back and agree with you on keeper, centre half and winger.

 

Thing is though, I can certainly see Ross Stewart and possibly even Hippolyte being moved on. That would leave us with Cooke and Mullen with Smith as more of a wide player. Add another forward to that and it's fair enough but I'd be a bit happier with two options. Stubbs has historically enjoyed his squads being a bit heavy up top.

At Hibs, he had Tony Stokes, Jason Cummings, Dominiqe Malonga, James Keatings, Grant Holt and Brian Graham in his squad at one point.

You said we are playing one up front next season & Jack Ross is responsible


I said he “was” responsible in reply to your “were playing one up front”.

Regardless, playing one central striker is pretty standard these days. I think we have a class no.10 in Cammy Smith so, IMO, we’ll play one up front.

Just my opinion.

If I am correct then we have made 4 new signings and re-signed 1 .Total 5

Not bad going when we have targetted 7-9

3 of the 4 are from non league football. I seem to be in the minority here but we need proven experienced players now and a few of them. This is a big gamble if we supplement the guys signed with English young loanees as Stubbs has said.

Hello Gordon? Aye I’m on my way.. ⚫️⚪️. Looks like Stubbs has made his 2nd signing of the summer in @TruroCityTweet midfielder Cody Cooke.

Obviously went from Abbotsinch Aerodrome straight to the New Grun , totally bypassing Asda on the way. .

I never judge players until I see them and I hope they are amazingly successful.

 

This reminds me of the season Danny Lennon got appointed and went for a few lower league players but if there as successful as McGregor it will be all good.

Not over yet Ayrshire.  My guess would be 2 experienced players plus loanees. But... I see your point.

Reminds me more of the Tommy Craig season when we went into a premier season expecting non league signings like marwood, done English lower league players like ball and a team full of youngsters to keep us up. As others have said we need good experienced quality pros brought in now.

A lot will depend on whether AS and his team can get the best out of the existing and new players.

In addition to the new players to come in so far, we need the likes of Anthony Stokes (if he screws the bobbin), another goalkeeper to challenge CS, at least one wide player, + 2 more defenders.

The video footage of today's new signings looks promising - but they have been playing in lower league football.

If the types of signings referred to above take place, we should be comparable in quality to other mid table teams in the Scottish Premiership.

We are on our way!

It's a gamble bringing in non league players, but it has worked for other clubs in the recent past, and Heaton in particular looks a great prospect, given the teams keeping tabs on him.

Obviously more experience required, but these guys will be highly motivated to do well for us and give themselves a chance to higher in the game.

Craig didn’t have a season. He had 19 games. With a 15.79% win rate. (Wiki).
