Another incoming though most likely not cleared in time for tomorrow

Also a third incoming, likely on Monday now.

Hearing a LB and a Striker

Names?Looking slightly better now. Coys

 

 

Not even heard a hint of a name, just as no-one had heard a hint of Dreyer.

Interesting that Brighton shelled out £2m for Dreyer back in the summer. It's not a great deal in English top light terms but still a pretty significant amount.

Should we be worried that Conor Sammon hasn't made the bench for Motherwell today?

I think he'd do fine for us, and would certainly improve our forward line.

We seem to have a few options on the wing now.

Get the ball into the box and hope the big striker fires them in.

Of course I'd like better, but we are where we are.

Thing is, his record at Thistle last season was actually OK with 7 league goals in 21 starts.

He'd maybe be decent foil for a more mobile forward. Still feel we need two centre forwards though as Jackson and Cooke just don't fill me with confidence at this level.

I'd actually take him. 

In our position we don’t have much options, I’d take him to the end of the season.

Sammon would be pretty underwhelming but would still improve the squad. I'd be happy enough if he signed.

I'd take Simon Murray too if there's any truth to that rumour.

Tansey and McGinn as the midfield platform, Dreyer, Lyons and McAllister in front with licence to push forward, and Jackson or new striker (or Cooke, I guess) up top. Real shame the Marec didn't pan out, I really liked the idea of a mobile beanpole up front.

Delighted with these two signings if for no other reason, it now provides genuine width and pace on the flanks. So many of our issues this season have come from playing so compact and teams bossing us in the middle of the park.

Getting balls wide to guys like Dreyer, Muzek and McAllister will relieve a lot of pressure and offer a LOT more options going forward. 

Just need that elusive striker. I'm not even sure of Sammon any more. We're fucking throwing in guys from all over the world! :lol:

I really hope that Erhahon isn't thrown aside as a result of this signing.

Based on what I've seen of the young lad I think he deserves to be given a chance to establish himself in midfield.

It would be  waste of talent if he is dumped back into the stiffs.

We need a defensive midfielder (especially as it seems Hodson is fucked) so I'm all for playing Ethan in the midfield.

Considering he's 17 and has played out of position all season, he's done amazingly well.

Kearney mentioned that he's not ready for midfield yet but that's where he sees him in middle to long term.

Fact of the matter is that he's the best pure defensive midfielder at the club (by proxy of being the only one) and is massively rated by everyone who has coached him both at youth and senior level.

Only a matter of time before he's a mainstay.

Looking forward to Magennis returning as well. Will really add another dimension to the side.
