I think it’s like every manager the scouts have there list of players the recruitment team and manager work together and I’m sure the manager will have his own list of players, both go watch games etc. With regards to new managers they usually have a few players they bring in with them, and their choices of how to improve the squad and then work with the recruitment team to identify new players.

He's not really kicked a ball for us for some weeks now. We could always do as we've done at times in the past of course in simialr circumstances; give him a cut of the fee/excess fee. He'd have to up his game in return of course.

He's definitely not been at his best but if you look at our recent matches he's still the guy that been closest to scoring a goal.

Campbell is the engine room of our team.

Unfortunately having a great engine doesnt do you any good if the wheels are falling off and the bodywork is severely damaged.....

The engine room needs a service.

I’m guessing that Harry Robinson is still at the club? 

He's on loan at Queen of the South. No idea how well he's getting on though.

He was not in the squad for their 2nd round cup win against Queens Park on Friday night, so I suspect he's not doing that well.

Afteer yesterday's game I haven't changed my opinion on what we need. A central defender, a central midfielder, at least one winger and a main striker. Thats a minimum of 4 players assuming that Hastie leaves. Not fussed about Crawford - squad player at best. We'll need more if one or more if O'Donnell, Gallagher and Campbell leave. The midfield is woefully short of pace. The January window is not an easy one to bring players in and so decent quality short term loans would do me just now. The new management will, of course, have their own opinions.

That’s what I think we need too for what it’s worth.  Being greedy, the midfielder should be able to create and run beyond the forwards to provide additional goal threat. Getting that within the parameters of our budget may prove to a challenge however

Although we’ve got the likes of Campbell, Polworth, O’Hara I still feel this season we lack quality, when Donnelly is back who knows but to get in a top loan player for 6 months who goes into that starting line up is a must for me. Striker who actually looks like scoring, commanding/ leader centre back, 1 or 2 wingers and a Right back if O’Donnell leaves.

After having a quick flick through this guy seems to fit the bill, of doesn’t score much, had potential but we could kickstart his career and managed by GA.

As we’ve seen previously with YouTube clips it means heehaw however having watched some he can actually strike a ball and put himself about for goals.

I'd be surprised to see more than 2 or 3 players max join this window, even if we were to lose a couple. Given the apparent divide in the dressing room and the known difficulties in getting quality players during January, I don't think half a dozen new faces mid-season is necessarily a good thing. Although I could be wrong.

Think by the end of the week after GA has his cosy little chats with each player he’ll know who the bad eggs are. Whether he’ll have the funds to replace them or not is another matter. I would like to think we’ll see at least a couple of new faces. Hopefully a a couple of battle hardened absolute bastards who don’t take any prisoners on or off the field

Jackson Irvine signed for Hibs, that's a good signing. one that would have been well out our price bracket. were we not linked with him years back when he originally joined Ross county?

Disappointing that we did not go for Jackson Irvine, I thought he would have been a good addition to our squad, mind you Hibs were supposed to be  after our ex players namely Gillespie and Cadden, so maybe the Irvine signing will put an end to the Cadden speculation!

In his interview earlier this week he said he didn't think he'd have anyone new in by the Rangers game.

I'm not sure we can compete with Hibs on the wage front. They have much more cash to splash around than we do.

aye, there is no way we can get anywhere near Hibs wages. I don't think Irvine and Cadden are like for like, Irvine more central from I remember as well middleeastdave
