As well as the (untrue) Griffiths stuff, some cheeky scamp on Hibs net is now suggesting that "Hibs were offered Jason Kerr but wouldnt match his £5k a week salary".

I do wonder what these people did before forums - pluck the wings off flies or torture small animals??

There must be some serious mental problems with the ITK types on club forums.

If we end up with just Hendry tonight.

This is going to be incredibly unpopular with the guys who seriously believe we're chucking bids at everyone we have a rumoured interest in, but I wouldn't mind tbh. We need someone capable of at least resembling a focal point while Doidge is away and before Mueller comes in. Whoever it is will spend most of their time in the bench anyway assuming *smashes head off a wooden desk* Nisbet stays. Hendry is bobbins but he can do that at least. 

Could do with another RB and a winger but I'm struggling to feel too negative about the window as we come to the end. Pretty elated that Boyle, Nisbet, Porto and Doig look to be staying and we've strengthened, if a bit underwhelmingly, a defence which conceded the third fewest goals in the league and the attack which scored the third most.

Have saved my season ticket refund email to the club in my drafts folder just in case.

Surely James Scott is the focal point striker?

I’m pretty happy with what we’ve got, another striker would be ideal but not essential IMO. Just glad we’ve got a decent looking CB in and kept our big players seemingly.

From chatting to the well lads more of a wide forward but aye can do that. I mean just as an extra stop gap, give Nisbet 20 mins rest every once in a while Hendry is fine

If you’re looking for cover for injuries/squad player/someone to facilitate the better players around him then hendry isn’t the worst option in the world. 

Aye agreed, people are talking like he'd be being brought in to be a starter

The trick is not to build a squad so badly that you have no other option but to start him.

I'm sorry, why the f**k are you signing David Mitchell?! 

I’m assuming so we can stop having to put Craig Samson on the bench/have him as our third keeper.

We’ve done pretty well I think. Assuming Wood is a better 3rd choice option than Daz (from what I’ve read he will be) we’ve done enough with the defence imo. Cadden is a solid back up at rb and McGinn will pick up again after his slow start this season. 

Doyle-Hayes and Magennis getting fit have improved us in midfield massively and Mackay and Bradley look decent impact players out wide. Mueller will come in January and play every week out wide so there’s not much need for another wide player. 

Could do with an extra body up top and if we manage that it’s been a good window. I’d never have expected us to keep the 4 guys linked with moves and if we get Nisbet and Porto on new deals soon we’re in good shape for the season

I'm not interested in your facts and logic m8, I just want to stamp my feet and have a hissy fit because we're signing St Johnstone's 3rd choice centre forward.

TBF the rumours down this way have been saying you had a bid accepted at the start of the Summer but only offered to increase his contract by £500 so he rejected it.

Apparently getting over £10k a week at Wigan, which shows how wild the money is down that way.

The truth is, nobody actually knows.

If Hibs had a (substantial, you would imagine hundreds of thousands?) bid accepted by your club, and baulked at offering more than £25k on top of his St J salary..............then that doesnt really add up as even a vaguely sensible rumour tbqh.

The rumours on TDD get dafter by the minute. Yesterdays was that Doig was off to Sevco, £4m and a 2 year deal - fact, you heard it here, ITK etc etc..................as if they would spend that and only secure a 2 year deal.

Agree entirely on the money down south, none of us can compete with it - and I dont blame the players for taking it.

First I’ve heard of us bidding for Kerr, seemed like he was always out our price range and that’s why we were after McCart. Also sounds weird that we would get a bid accepted for a player without speaking to their agent to find out what kind of wages he’s after. Sounds like shite tbh.

Yeah it made no sense to me, but has been rife in Perth for a few weeks.

Obviously there’s still time but its appearing likelier and likelier it’ll just be Mitchell and no other players in.

Overall, a pretty disappointing window I would say, Doyle-Hayes probably being the only player that improves us as an XI. 

Obviously with Magennis’ improvement you could argue he’s “like a new signing” but we’re no stronger in defence or attack and we now have less depth in midfield.

Losing Mallan, Irvine, McGinn with Hallberg and potentially Murphy out for a length of time leaves us far weaker, despite the majority of the aforementioned names not having a massive impact for us and unfortunately I don’t have much faith Allan will ever be the player he was.

Last season I felt we were light up top and with no Doidge till Christmas it now feels even moreso.

Got to pray for a lack of injuries between now and Christmas really for when Mueller comes in and Doidge comes back.

I’ve said this already but if we’d acted earlier and brought Wood in instead of fannying about with McCart we’d possibly be on 12 points rather than 10 and at least have got through an extra round in Europe.

And it can’t be a lack of budget if we just offered a few hundred grand for McCart, and also do we really need 3 goalkeepers? When in the history of the club have we ever went down to a 3rd choice? There’s also an emergency loan system in place for rare occurrences like that, appreciate he’ll be cheap and probably never play but could we not have chucked that few hundred a week at another player.

Pretty frustrating all in all.
