January Arrivals

Recommended Posts


Are the wait and see mob willing to admit we’ve made a complete cock up of the window yet? 
“We’re down the food chain”
 ”Wait ‘till late in the window”
”Hard to do business in Jan”
Can’t wait to see what unknown teenage cast off from the Premier League we get handed, almost as if we learned nothing from Stubbs...
Dundee and Hamilton have brought in players with experience at this level. We’ve brought in Tansey, an ex-Academy player and some foreign boys none of us had seen play.
In May we will suffer drastically for an absolute shambles of a season from start to finish, instigated by every board member and members of both management teams making continuous mistakes. 
Out. Of. Our. Depth.
None of us have to see them play prior to signing for us. That's why the club have Gus and the coaching staff.

Imagine you getting in a state about me ‘getting in a state’ about football. Oh dear.
You can voice concerns without it consuming your life.
 
How many years has it been since Andre played at this level?

How do you they were not offered to us. emoji849.png

This. The amount of folk I've seen whining about Ross shafting us again by giving these guys to Sunderland is incredible. How do we know they weren't offered to us and we said no? Maybe Kearney doesn't rate them or maybe we can't afford them.

Who knows, perhaps Ross has done us a favour by deliberately giving Dundee a couple of duds :lol: And if we had sign them they same folk moaning now would probably have been moaning about us signing players with sod all experience.

I'm not defending our transfer dealings and lack of signings today by any means, but there's plenty to be critical of without making stuff up.

We've just signed a player who was one of the top scorers in Danish football, and was signed by an English premiership team for £2 million and people have written the guy off as "pish" already.

Imagine we signed a striker for a fee, who couldn't get near the first XI of an English division one team. 

The response would put some of the meltdowns witnessed on here in the past few days to shame.

Have we....who is it?

I'll give you a clue.

He's Danish and he's got his own thread about ten down from this one.

Just now, Sweeper07 said:

Andres Dreyer - it was the 2nd division though - so perhaps a bit like Laurence Shankland going for £2 Million

No that was last week.....the chap/chapess posted today, deadline day.  Is he/she confused?

No FTOF posted "we have just signed.."  Perhaps FTOF should answer

 

For example I have just had a massive shite,  I am of course referring to the massive shite I just dropped into the pan and NOT a massive shite I may/may not have had some day last week.  Christ almighty!!!!!

Plus Nelson spent the first half of the season at Darlington. Imagine the reaction if we'd paid money for someone who'd been playing for them.

Had Dundee signed these guys from, say, Portsmouth then no one would be that bothered - but because it's Sunderland it's somehow treachery from Ross.

Has the eagle landed yet :rolleyes: Better sticking to tantrums over Tony and Gus not doing their job :lol:

I never said they weren't doing their job, I said that questions should be asked over their respective roles in this window when their main priority was clearly to bring in at least one centre forward to improve the squad and we are less than 4 hours away from the window closing and not achieving that. 

There absolutely should be questions asked if it passes with so many new faces and not a single centre forward. What has Gus brought to our transfer dealings in this window that wasn't brought when we signed 10 players 2 seasons back? 

Why are we continually and very publicly announcing we are 'nearly there' with signings only for them to invariably fall through time and time again? 

If you don't think there is anything to be worried about, that's completely up to you but personally, I think it's quite concerning. 

Starting with the begging of Lewis Morgan to please come home by our own chief exec on his twitter account complete with praying hands. I love Fitzy but FFS, that was absolutely cringeworthy and was the moment I pinpointed that there was no chance Morgan would even give us a second thought again. 

As is the public announcement of our signing strategy being that we are so far down the food chain so need to wait on other clubs doing their stuff and hope we get thrown scraps here and there.... Is THAT the much lauded scouting strategy we were promised?

Much more diddy clubs than us would never even f**king dream of saying that sort of thing publicly.

Lol complete meltdown on here some would have you believe we haven’t signed anyone in January.

Board and Oran clearly have had there targets and for what ever reason they haven’t came off not really much more they can do if a club comes in with more money.

And calling for people to lose their jobs because of it is just crazy especially for a club like us with our budget in the January window.

Lots acting like spoilt children not getting their toys they had been promised.

If we don’t get anyone in tonight I’m sure we will still be on the hunt for the right ones that are without a club.

Far from ideal but that’s football life goes on.

Maybe our striker targets were actually decent for a change, are in demand, and other clubs have outbid us at the last minute.

The Malec situation certainly sounds like that.

I'd rather we were pipped at the post, rather than panic buy someone who isn't better than our current crop of strikers.

IMO the type of striker we're after is a six foot plus target man. None of the signings that other clubs have made, fall into that category.
