Both are probably in my top dozen or so players to ever pull on a saints jersey but they are both having less and less impact on games as the months and years pass.

The odd flash of vintage genius isn’t enough I’m afraid. Centre midfield needs overhauled.

Muzz, Craig, Wotherspoon, Callaghan not the answer!! Ali McCann looks very promising but we need at least two of the aforementioned out and a very good midfielder in. 

Mark O'Hara Peterborough is interesting Kilmarnock and Motherwell..........probably outwith our kind of money but the type of midfielder we need.

Pretty unimpressed with the signing of Ralston tbh.

The FB position is going to be a massive weakness for us this season. 

From Cuptie and Easton to Ralston and Tanser.

:shock:

Building for the future. They were both past their use by date. Imho

Would Stephen Hendrie be an option as cover for LB?

Yes, but i doubt we'd pay that high a wage for cover. I expect someone released by a Scottish Championship side, or on loan from another club in the SPL

Just 'cos he is contracted to Celtic until 2022 doesn't mean he might be available before that. I'd be very surprised if he has a long-term future at Celtic given the money they have to get a better quality alternative.

Would have preferred someone in permanently rather than a loan, but given Foster only left last week I can understand why we have gone down this route.

O'Hara was on loan at Lincoln City for the latter part of last season and was impressive in a holding/attacking midfield role. Made a sterling contribution towards getting the Imps top spot in Div2.

Agree entirely with your last sentence.

We were crying out for flair players a couple of years ago and we now have them in abundance. 

Think back to when we had Zorro strutting his stuff, he could change a game, now we have loads of game influencers. 

I worry about our defence, would like to see an older head in the CB positions, but not sure that's on the list. 

Holt would be more than welcome, that would be a major boost. 

Still crap up front, Stevie will make a huge difference as long as he stays fit, any injuries to stevie and we are desperately short up top. Kane not good enough at this level and he has more than enough chances so time to move him on. Matty could be stevie partner but that just leaves hendry as back up. 

Think shopping list is still left back, CB, holt and another striker. 

Kane, ando and mcmillan can all leave. 

Bookies now installed us at 4,500 to 1 to win the league along with Hamilton, County and St Mirren. Could be 4.5 million to one as its just not going to happen, much changed for the worse compared to 3/4 years back where we were up along side hearts in the betting. 

I felt quite optimistic for the season before the killie game but the reality is there's an imbalance in the team and I just hope Brown is working his socks off to make this better.

A Celtic loanee who is contracted there until 2022 isn't 'building for the future'.

Better than keeping has beens. Should help keep us out of the mire.

Brown on saints TV apparently hoping at least another 1 to come in today, possibly 2 and possibly 2 going out.

Tw did not expect the foster situation and Duffy was clearly back up . He’s not ready to start as clearly seen by the last 2 games.

so he has a few days to find a rib and folk r moaning that we have brought in a guy that Celtic trusted in a champions league game against PSG !!!

ralston is obviously an improvement on Duffy

Kirk Broadfoot on 1 year deal please. Can play right back and cover centre back. Won't be looking for a high wage I imagine. Experienced player to help the young back four.

Never thought I would see the day a Saints fan wanted Broadfoot. A fair indictment on the summer transfer business.
