Warburton has said himself he is looking at players to bring in during January that are of premiership quality. It's all about trying to build for next season and it's better to get players in during January and giving them 6 months to bed in rather than sign them in the summer and hope they hit it off straight away.

Players usually cost more in january however.

It'll be bosmans mostly I should think. Maybe some small fees after they've signed the bosman to get them straight away.
3.) 10 Nov 2015 10:15:37
Yeah but he said one player or two maximum will be brought in January, does everyone think that's enough?

We need two central defenders, a defensive mid, quality playmaker, and two strikers- just to bring us to a standard capable of a top half finish next season.
In terms of competing with Celtic or Aberdeen then we need major investment with 2-3 players of real quality on top of improving squad.
MW is never going to admit this publicly, it would be a slap in the face to the current squad and hardly boost morale. The truth is the current squad is good enough for a very poor standard but has struggled every time we have played a half decent side.
Sadly with the whole Ashley king hmrc saga, major investment in the team is highly unlikely in the near future.

Frank McParland will be looking at Non League players and Div 2 in England. Players these days from Div 1 down there are going for £1 mill plus. McParland comes with a great pedigree for finding those gems, he used Vardy and Ali as a recent examples of guys being down the lower leagues then making their way up and then talking in huge transfer fees for their clubs.
I think this is a great approach. Thoughts?

Bell, Wallace, Ball, Law, Oduwa, Zelalem, Clarke, Miller, Templeton and Shields all out of contract/returning from loan spells at the end of the season so I think it's fair to say a good few will need to come in between January and the window in the summer.
Ps. Obviously I'd like to keep Wallace but I don't think that can be guaranteed.

That's actually a pretty fair assessment Luigi. As you say although we have looked good up to a point, when up against a better caliber of team we have fallen short. Yes we probably should have been beaten Hibs but that's the point here, we didn't. A better standard of player and we would have put them to the sword. You can talk about luck all you want but a natural goal scorer would have converted the chances created and therefore luck wouldn't be required. I feel that against St. J, we needed a) that goal scorer as there were plenty of chances created and b) that defensive midfielder to offer a bit of protection to the defence. Otherwise I reckon we're not too badly off other than that. Though I don't get paid to build and coach footy teams so I'm sure someone will "put me right! "

See Luigi is still trying to fool us all with the old 'WE' nonsense, ! He just told us how very poor we are? , come out of the closet pal. Ure fooling no. one

I'd love to hear peoples thoughts on players we could sign. Billy King would be a good signing at that cost but I believe we have players in the U20's who could do equally as well given the chance. In the build up to Xmas surely we should be checking out the likes of Ross Lyon, Ross McCrorie and Josh Jeffries. I believe that Craig Halkett has just completed his loan with Berwick too so should be pushed up to bench. We need to see these lads now against teams in the championship before we start spending money on higher quality signings that may not be necessary. We've got Dumbarton, Raith, Morton and Falkirk before the big match vs hibs at the end of Dec. Ample chance to give these youngsters a crack at the whip.

TomTom12 - there's something wrong with your Sat nav. Not sure what closet I'm supposed to be in.
Are you suggesting I'm pretending to he a rangers fan? If so you have a world class imagination or your on a daily diet of LSD. Perhaps you should take up creative writing?

I see our former manager Ally has come out with another one of his stupid statements. Telling everyone that our club when into admin then liquidation. That's all we need to stir that lot up again with that tired debate.
1.) 17 Mar 2016 17:29:50
Biffo, I hate to be the bearer of bad news.

Poetic - I do hope you'll stick around after the 17th april. I have a bottle of Bollinger in the fridge we can share.

I don't drink Gram - but I'll be around :)

The new company purchased the assets while the old cpmpany was in administration. The SFA clearly states this in their memoranda during the registration process that ended with the team playing in the lowest tier. Different company, same club. No story here. Move on please.
5.) 17 Mar 2016 19:08:02
Yes it's that simple however I think our ex manager should have been more careful with his words.
6.) 17 Mar 2016 20:20:45
I know. It only provides the ammunition.

He Kept his mouth shut when he was at Ibrox, my st be running
Out of millions needs some dash oh and by the way Ally You did do Walking away and thank Feck for that!

Bongo - Exactly! McCoist never opened his mouth when it would have benefited the club, why start now. And don't give me the 'he was worried to speak out of turn for fear of his job' nonesense.
As for the sevco issue, its just funny watching them all still getting worked up about it. Short memories with regards to Pacific Shelf. 55 will be 55.
Also, not convinced the pathetic poet or whatever he is called doesn't drink having read some of his posts (on another teams website) .

Yeah but it's not the first time he has made them and it's an all to commen occurrence with him.
28 Dec 2016 16:43:36
Crooks like Rossiter seems to be another player who constantly struggles with injury. He has been very unfortunate and it's hard to see him getting a game unless a few other midfield players get injured.
28 Dec 2016 17:24:08
If Crooks plays the game will fly by him. He has only played 3 games in last 6 months and hasn't played a full 90 mins it would be very unwise to pitch him in.
28 Dec 2016 10:25:05
Who would realistically sign him and how much would you think he is worth.

Who was Robinson?
