If there's just one signing this Friday, who would you hope for?


Joe Cardle. Every time.

Depends on factor.  Nostalgia wants cardle.   In outright ability I’d want mcginn but he’s probably highly sought after and we already have Whittaker.   In where the squad needs the most cover I’d a want box to box midfielder but nobody immediately springs to mind.

Good goalkeepers hard to come by.

I'd probably just prefer Jamie MacDonald to Owain Fon Williams, but OFW isn't a bad signing either.

The quality of keeper in this division has went downhill fast in the last decade.  OFW is reasonably solid which is a massive improvement on 2019.  MacDonald is a step up from that and I’d be quite happy with him,  unfortunately the marketplace now means I can’t see anyone who would genuinely excite me like being able to bring in Gallagher to play at this level.

Need a keeper and four or five squad players.
Not sure turner is the answer in midfield but hoping he does better this season.

Joe Cardle as a squad player/coach would appease a lot of fans and potentially result in more season tickets being bought.

Still sketchy on Turner. I’d actually be hopeful of adding a couple more central midfield players as I don’t think he is the answer and Whittaker won’t be an automatic starter.

Sort that out, as well as a proper goalkeeper, plus a couple more squad players and I think we will have a very good squad indeed. On paper I wouldn’t just be hoping for top 4, I’d be expecting it.

5 or 6 more signings?!

You're absolutely at it with that.

Edit: Unless you mean at least 4 on loan?

Definitely would increase the sales by one.

Looking below I think we need half a reserve side, Todd, McCann arguably first team reserves. In defence I think we are ok, need a first choice keeper, two midfielders and one forward maybe one more winger. Using the loan system for two or three of them. As said the reserves need more players so will probably see 10 more in altogether. Not all first team. Definitely light in central midfield considering SW is meant to be a coach. 
Don’t think any of this is outrageous but understand we will be limited and perhaps don’t want to offer lots of contracts.

Weve been linked with Nesbitt, OFW and a few others. Would be great to get some more quality signings. A Stephen Bell type like Draper is a priority. Turner can’t be expected to run the midfield and win balls then drive forward. We played him deep last season and I’m not sure it helped his progression tbh.

Hopefully Cardle doesn’t sign. Not cut out for even being a sub at this level. He’ll probably end up at Kelty Hearts which would suit him nicely.

Your point caller? Literally 80% of our signings over the last decade haven’t been good enough; at least this one would be popular.

Main point for me is, we keep buying the Season Tickets and we've more chance of keeping on improving the squad for this coming season.

Yes, I would imagine we will take advantage of the loan market and not have to pay much, if at all, wages for players that will be used as pretty much squad players or injury cover unless they perform extremely well.

A decent goalkeeper for this level is the next priority. Černy, MacDonald, Fôn-Williams, Rogers. Would take any one of them.
