January Arrivals

Do you think they have given up and gone home?

Deadline is midnight - work ends then for a wee break before the free market shuffles  :ninja 

There does seem to be an air of resignation about deadline day for us, but I wouldn't give up hope just yet.

January windows are an awful time to do business. Realistically we were always going to be reliant on waiting for players to end their contracts elsewhere. When that happens we're at the mercy of the agents.

For every deal we think we've lined up, agents will have touted him to other teams saying exactly how much we offered.

Moving forward hopefully we've now got in place the infrastructure to get deals sorted as early as possible, as we messed up this season by having no contingency for Ross leaving despite that being apparent from before we won the league.

We could still sign out of contract players, disappointed that we couldn't bring in at least a striker during the window. Was identified as a position we wanted to recruit for

Think we can all log off now, they've chucked it and will wait and see what leftovers agents tout to us next week.

Going in to a relegation battle with this shambles of a defence and ONE player capable of playing striker.

All we got today was our coach f**king off to Hamilton! :lol: Unbelievable.

An abject failure. An utter bloody shambles in fact.

Gus MacPherson should be made to hand his wages back. Oran Kearney isn't doing much to earn his thus far either it must be said.

1. IF we don't get a striker in  tonight it is a huge disappointment... Considering Hamilton and Dee have brought in  :  3 for Hamilton and 2 and a winger for Dee

2. We actually have reasonable cover everywhere else in the team except up front. Okay with Hodson injured we have 1 fit RB

3. In our favour guys like Lyons, Dreyer, McAllister should pitch in with some goals and possibly a CB too.

4. There must be someone out there who did not get the deal they wanted and might just come to us for 5 months just like Hammill did. :spud7

Surely there’s at least two signing in the next seven and a bit hours... surely...

Proven goal scoring striker at this or similar level and a proper centre midfielder required.

Minimum.

Not got the money to match.

Kyle McAllister is a great addition, I'll give them that. But I don't think just asking for our old academy players back justifies the outlay we have had in directors, coaches and scouts around the club this year.

The outlay isn't any higher than clubs at our level. We have the same coaching staff numbers as both Livi & Hamilton. If the appointment of Gus has landed a couple of gems in the new signings from further afield it'll have been a very worthwhile exercise. Time will tell

What about travis ?

Not long just passed on our walk. Travis enjoyed it as usual. Bit cold tho. No cars about except the stadium staff. But I'm guessing at this late stage there will be no press conference. Back to you in the studio insaintee 🤣 ps Travis thanks you for his mention. Now I'm off to the Snow Patrol gig. Coys.
