Its going to be a tight squad so every member has to pull their weight and add something to the team.  To me  theres two I wouldnt have extended and thats gomis and telfer.  The midfield area was our biggest problem last season and yet we seem to be going with more of the same. Telfer adds nothing and gomis a year older and with miller signed just isnt what we need.  Very surprised that telfer is back and yet todd isn't given they signed him in january.

Wasnt Todd signed on an 18 months deal? Think hes here for another year.

Durnan and Telfer are the 2 i wouldnt have signed still it could have been worse we came a baw hair away from having Durnan as a Captain if the interview with M and M is anything to go by.

Aye you're right the herald was talking pish regarding that originally. Even more reason not to sign gomis and telfer. The fact we now still have 5 of the midfield that let us down last season is a very worrying stat and says that m and m are unable to see where the issues were last season.

I am not sure Gomis is in the conversation but I dont think you can have Todd and Telfer in the same team and for me, Todd every day.

We need legs and drive in the middle of the park stevie wonder can see that but none of our midfielders have that and yet we're signing them all back up.

Didn't we only lose 1 game in the league with them as managers? Maybe the issues aren't as bad as you think!

We’d be lucky to make the playoffs with a Nelson- Dowds partnership. We need a proven goal scorer alongside Dowds, not a guy who scored 4 goals last season.

See this proven goal scorer malarky, do you honestly think we are going to sign a striker right now who in the last three seasons has scored 15+ goals? Nelson brings you a bit of dig, he holds up the ball and he can properly run the channels(not like Sammon) he was also becoming a lot more clinical towards the end of his tenure with us. Most dundee fans i've seen comment on him leaving would have liked him to stay but he's not good enough for Falkirk? Dreamland.

We need to be far better than last season to beat partick to the title. The same midfield again won't cut it and was horrible to watch last season. Far too many draws.

For me it’s got to be Gomis or Miller in centre midfield beside someone more attacking. Gomis seems like a waste of a wage- we could have brought in a cheaper backup to Miller and used the funds elsewhere. 

you cant play gomis and miller. That was one of the main problems last season. Every time we came up against a clyde or airdrie with young vibrant midfields we struggled badly.

I wonder if Miller might go back to RB this season where he’s played most of his career given that Doyle has moved on


Mutch

Miller - Hall - Durnan - Dixon

Todd - Telfer - Gomis - Connolly

Dowds - New signing/Sammon/BSLM

David and Lee were clear in their interview last week that they see Miller as a defensive midfielder.

I think we’ll make 5 more signings- a back up goalkeeper, a right back, a centre back, a winger and a striker.

The lack of pace in the midfield is what’s worrying me.

And one of those young, vibrant midfielders has just knocked back an offer from Clyde, is a free agent and, like Dowds, looking for a crack at full-time. He'd make a huge difference to our midfield.

I know you're only working with who we currently have signed at the moment but hopefully that won't be anywhere near the starting line up come the 6th of October. Miller will be in centre midfield and hopefully if m&m have learned from last season not with Gomis. I've not really seen much of Todd to work out what his best position is but i'm pretty sure him and Telfer are pretty similar in that they aren't fast enough to be wingers and they are too soft to play in the middle of the park.

I'd like to see some pace as well to be fair but if they can get them playing in a way with quick passing and good movement then that beats pace every time.

Miller is far too slow to play right back now ffs. We'd have been as well  with doyle in that case.   Gomis struggled to last 60 mins last season so should be an option off the bench and no more. We need a decent winger with pace and at least one younger centre mid . An attacking right back and a pure goal scoring type striker are also needed.  Another centre half  plus im not sure we should be relying on a young left back that got knocked back from our academy on a number of occasions and couldn't get a regular game for camelon last season as our only cover in that position.  Cant see him being anywhere near ready for the first team.  At the moment we're worse than last season so a massive amount of work to do still.

Let's forget the idea of Miller RB, it's already been said in and interview the will be playing in front of the back 4. 

They might play Gomis and Miller together as sitting mids in some of the tougher away games, apart from that they shouldn't be in the same team!

If you're talking about Ray Grant I think he's a shoe in to sign on with his old buddy brother at Queens Park. Then there's mcstay who there was some talk of us being after last summer which doesn't fill me with confidence given our signings last season were more miss than hit.
