Two things.

Graeme Spiers.

Did you pay for this?

Pretty decent podcast series with regular interviews featuring Scottish managers.  Mcglynn has been on a few times.

Dick should be nowhere near that defence as a CB the guy canny defend and also Murray can’t wait and see if Lang comes back and he’s the 2nd coming of Maldini, we need at least 2 CHs in but would take 1 early in the window and 1 late type thing 

I agree bud unfortunately not sure Murray does

He did say he was a big fan of the loan market, so it could be that's where we see movement.

Also did say we needed more players, but only specifically mentioned signings.

He might get through one or two league Cup games with that back 4, given some of the limitations clubs like Peterhead are having in signing folk as well - but he's surely aware that he tries that back 4 in the league and we are toast...

It does seem like a weird line to keep going back to. There might be one or two players that Murray thinks are surplus to requirements, but there's no way that the squad as a whole is too big. We've got 23 players signed up at the moment, three of whom are goalkeepers, and seven are apprentices (four of which have never kicked a ball in the Championship). 

26 players started league games for us last year, and 20 of those started at least 5 matches. 

Just picking another few at random, Ayr started 27 players, Hamilton started 30, ICT and Partick Thistle both started 23. 

There's obviously some movement in January that leads to a couple of extra names joining the list, but you can't point to a squad with 14 senior outfielders and claim it's too big. It's just silly.

This is just my opinion, I think we will see 1 more permanent signing then fill the rest out on loans if the budget is down a bit, but the kits seem to have sold well and that could go towards the budget same if we sell more Season tickets, plus we will have cash income from the cup games and the TV money vs Aberdeen to contribute towards that

Agreed

When I hear Murray talking about the squad being too big I do think he is talking about guys like Masson, Mahady who are maybe a bit surplus to requirements. I’m sure on that Speirs interview he hinted at Mitchell probably needing a loan out to get games.

Aye, he'll definitely struggle for game time given the long queue of strikers in front of him at the moment...

I concur, with the signing being a CB.

Mitchell will be playing for us NEXT year, if he can get time in L1 or L2 THIS year. Mahady may be loaned or let go, Coulson should be loaned, as should Masson…but Masson is our only real depth right now. I expect Bow gets released somehow.

Listened to podcast with Murray on Graeme Spiers Patreon site, he mentions the squad is too big again.  Also mentioned we need strikers, but didn't say anything about defence.  Did imply the young guys would be going out on loan.

Certainly got the impression he won't be signing players for the sake of it.

Just had a listen myself, very good insite into what the manger is, wants and expects from his players and team. 

 

From what I take from it, it does seem he has a plan in place for recruitment too. Loans and adaptable commited players is what he seems to want IMO.

Yeah, I do think that there is thought going into recruitment that doesn't always translate into quick action.

It may be that rumours leaked like a sieve under Mcglynn and aren't anymore ...
