January Arrivals

Nothing to do with the quality of the guy. More to do with the roaring and greeting about our apparently shite signing policy and the fact that we weren't going to sign anyone on deadline day. Also, I'm very calm given the good laugh I had at the state the likes of yourself got into yesterday. emoji16.png

I’m as I was yesterday. Calm, hopeful, excited but cautious. I hope our gamble pays off.

The signing policy can be judged in May when we know if we’ve achieved our goal. If we’ve achieved our goal then as I said i’ll be first on here to eat humble pie. OK and Gus will have well earned the trust of the whole fanbase by that point (well, most).

I was reading the BBC Sport article where OK said Nazon was the striker we had “been crying out for” couldn’t help but get very painful flashbacks to Bahoken...

It's probably worth sparing a moment for Tony, Gus and Oran.

That must have been a pretty stressful end to the window for them especially.

Gordon too I imagine.

Just hope to hell Oran can get this group of players on the same page overnight.

Three games in the next week should help.

It would have been better to have had them in for a few weeks before playing 3 games in a week  -but it is what it is.

Hope we get a positive bounce right from the off this week, but so long as we beat Motherwell and Utd, I would be delighted . .

Would love to win on Saturday too though also . . . .   :turtle

I doubt we'll get anything at Ibrox; i think from a pragmatic persrpective it would be good to let the new guys find their feet in the team prior to Wednesday and cup game the Saturday after and not worry about the result this weekend too much. If we win those two games then things will be looking a lot rosier.

It'll be exciting to see all the new players on Wednesday night - I'm going to have the blinkers on over the weekend and stay focused on that game :-)

In order to understand, you would need to have had a stressful job which came with responsibilities at some point in your life. 
Obviously you have not reached that level yet.


I can imagine that in your job, cleaning the toilets in Burger King, that you face stress all the time.

Did you make up your Walter Mitty persona as a pretend scientist to deal with it?

So you've made up something I said then posted some irrelevance to back it up?

Comedy gold! :lol:

I think you'll find my posts have been completely in line with your nonsense. 

‘So, close to half. LPM is correct IMO. 

‘Div also said that we'd only recruit 3 to 4 players at the same time as LPM. They both said that to recruit more players then more would need to leave.

 LPM did not say more would need to leave, I quoted what he said. LPM said less than half, he was by no means close

‘8/16 = 50% = exactly half. No spin required! Thanks’

Two additional signings last night clearly mean even by your warped take on it, he was  wrong.

‘So, going by your interpretation, its 8/15. Nor far off half!’ ‘There have been 8 January arrivals and 16 were shipped out for them. That's half!’

Willing to admit that by any definition now it was wrong?

Bringing in so many foreign players without watching them in person is a huge risk. These players will have been brought to the club due to scouts recommendations and through DVDs/YouTube. But so far, Hladký & Popescu have looked solid in the Black and White so I'm hopeful the other foreign lads will turn out just as good.

Not sure at all where all this "well done the management" arse licking is coming from?

This looks to me like a lot of hopeful random punts cobbled together at the end of the window. Has Gus been out to scout these guys or have they been brought in on the basis of some youtube videos? The 2nd lad from Dinamo Bucharest presumably here after a last minute suggestion from his mate :lol:

Obviously, I hope these guys have a storming half season with us! But why are so many trying to delude themselves by suggesting there was some form of strategic planning and execution behind this random jumble of signings?

I reckon all fans should watch 'Sunderland Till I Die' to gain some knowledge of the trials and tribulations of running a football club. There may be more understanding and less urine swilling about.

Well done our management in what has been an extremely stressful time for all of them.

Agree, that was a solid programme well worth the watching. Wonder if there will be a follow up with the introduction of the St Mirren influences :clapping

There is. They are filming this season as well.

Last season Sunderland made a list of transfer targets and got virtually none due to a myriad of reasons. They also tried to send players out on loan one of whom was driving to Derby to sign when Derby pulled the plug. Why do fans think it is so easy?

Surely our new signings have come as a result of agents/scouts sending in DVDs/YouTube videos. I can't see Gus travelling to Croatia, Czech Republic and Romania as well as Slovakia & South Korea (the two trialists; Malec & FH) to scout players.

Nazon was recommended to the club by our English based scout, Kearney & Co watched several clips of him and ultimately decided he was good enough for us.

I am more hopeful. The majority of these guys come from some pretty impressive clubs. I'm hoping this counts for something.

Um.....the whole point of that netflix show was highlighting what a f**king shambles Sunderland were! They operated with no budget for players and their scouts gave Martin Bain a list with Zlatan Ibrahimovic at the top of it :lol:

Competitive sport is not supposed to be "easy". 

I'd certainly feel a lot happier with players we are familiar with like Osman Sow, Scott Wright, and Liam Polworth. I don't see why when we have had half a season to build up to this window (fully aware of how many players would be needed) we are playing lucky dip with the dvds sent up by agents?
