January Transfer Window

Recommended Posts

Sonsteam of 08    3,184

Wa-hey it's that time of the year again when Scottish football's lower league jobbers and 'highly rated youngsters' start to get us all excited. Seen as my Summer thread disappeared after becoming out of date here's the (equally as well formatted) January equivalent. 

For us I suspect we'll see Mark Brown leave and hopefully Craig Pettigrew follow him out the exit door. A return for Christian Nade has been rumoured, but who knows. I doubt he'll be able to recapture his form of this time last year, but he won't do any harm. We badly need bodies, and Aitken is apparently looking abroad so it might be quite an interesting month for us.

If any tabloid journos are reading, plz message me before you use my exact list on your website and pass it off as your own...I'm fine to let you have it, but I'd like the credit this time...

Anything happened already that I've missed? I know Walsh and Hardie don't officially leave until January, but it will be happening so that's in. Anybody got anyone else confirmed either way?

Doesn't always happen right enough.
Could be right, vikingTon. Perhaps Queens can avenge the horror 5-0 on Xmas Eve.

No, no you can't.

Thanks for playing anyway though.

Rigg is injured why would he leave.
I'm sure players will be coming in.

Unless it's a youngster out on loan, someone makes an offer we can't refuse for a player or Nisbet or McKenna's loans aren't extended then I doubt anyone will go. Someone will definitely come in though.
 Who though?. That is the question

Resigned to losing key players but faith in Duffy has risen considerably when it comes to bringing guys in despite the obvious duds. We don't really NEED a replacement for Gunning although obviously would be nice.

Is Lindsay due to go? If we lose him, I'd be much more worried.

No, Celtic do have the option to recall him in January but the loan is until the end of the season. As they have approximately 18000 midfielders we should be fine.

Looks like the Championship may about to be graced by the presence of the fish.

I am genuinely stunned that he has made a very decent career for himself given the fact he's been hilariously awful ever time I've ever seen him, bar a 6 month spell with Killie where Eremenko became a Pirlo/Iniesta mix.

He will now score (plenty) against us.

Rory Loy is free to leave Dundee, can't see them allowing to join another premiership team so perhaps dropping down a level is more likely.
