What do we think is realistically going to happen in January?

We'll get Cleary and one addition to the forward line who'll be a half-season loan - likely Matty Kennedy or Drey Wright, maybe someone like Mikey Johnston if we're really lucky, and an Izzy Jones type who'll play 20 mins in the cup against a lower league team

1 open play goal since October 2nd.

After today as many of our goals have been own goals as open play goals...

You're point about Kane in the other thread is correct but we can clearly see that letting McCann and Kerr go so late was madness.

I understand the financial factors but they were so important to how the team played. The replacements just don't fit. 

Of course.... not changing shape to then accommodate the players that are available is a different argument.

I'm almost certain the manager picked Muller as Kerrs replacement, by the sounds of it everyone agreed Kerr would be gone in the Summer window after the qualifiers.

Again just rumours, but McCann wasn't planned for and came about as he made it abundantly clear he wanted to leave. I don't think MacPherson was the planned replacement and simply someone who could be loaned to bridge the gap between windows. I'll be worried if we do anything permanent with him based on what we've seen.

They need to be pretty flawless with the signings in January or we're in trouble, and it's not an easy window to get right. The Summer window has completely fucked us.

I'm not saying you're wrong but picking a 19 year old with zero experience to replace Kerr raises some serious questions. 

Even if he had the makings of being a similar type of player to Kerr expecting him to step right into that role? That's a massive gamble.

Oh yeah I wasn't saying it was the right decision, just that I think that was his thoughts.

I've been fairly clear for a long time now that I don't rate Davidson as a squad builder. Since he took over we've got weaker despite having a solid base to build from.

A poor squad builder a chairman like Brown are an unhealthy mix.

Our lack of any goal threat has ruined our season so far and it is all due to our lack of investment in the striking department. With our cup money etc there is no excuse for it.

All our new season ticket holders must be scunnered I know I am.

Lack of investment anywhere, at least in quality.

Absolute scenes when we lose the playoff to Arbroath.

Yous have thought that bulletproof might have learned something. Guess not.

I love how whenever saints are playing poorly, it always comes back to Steve Brown. Not gonna lie, on the evidence so far I’m not sure I’d trust Davidson with a budget!
