If Ashcroft's performances in the playoffs are anything to go by then I'll absolutely take that. 

Yeah think hes just a solid ol' defender who'll blooter anything, or anyone, who comes near him, while also being a threat at set plays.

Good first signing for the Championship IMO.

Murray seems like a very Tommy Wright signing, one that would help make your defence much more steady and solid. I see he's being linked with St Mirren and another top flight club too, so tough competition for his services.

I thought he'd be decent as cover for Gordon as the "meat and tatties" defender of our three, but I'm unsure how much appeal that would have when he could probably earn more, and play more, at Kilmarnock.

I don't think he'll sign for a club to be a back up at this stage of his career. No disrespect to him but there's zero chance of him displacing the current back 3 at Saints with the way they've been playing and how well they play as a unit.. He's bound to be a starter at Killie with the other options there and as you say he'll likely earn more money too. Would be a pretty shrewd move for both parties IMO, although he may want a shot at the top flight sooner than what Killie can currently offer.

Aye.

Think that's part of the reason we didn't do anything with Ashcroft when he was on trial last season too. 

Weird place where we need a top flight quality CB to come in and play just a handful of games a season.

Hearts income is far bigger than all those clubs, so what exactly is your point? Should we have adjusted our budget to the average for the Championship?

During a pandemic? Hmm. I think once you take expenditure away from income it might well tell a different story to hoe much better rub those clubs are. Is the maroon pound worth more than anywhere else?

That other club will be County.  Someone at the club rates him.

Euan Murray confirmed, happy with that to start as will weaken Dunfermline & strengthen our piss poor defence. Would take a chance on Jason Naismith as well as I'm surprised County released him.

I think both the Rovers boys will be next ....

Naismith isn't known for being the best "professional athlete"

Ross Millen has left the club, given a deadline to sign a new deal, didn't get back to them so the offer has been withdrawn and he's out the door.

Surely he was only offered a back up role as we can do better even for the Championship.
