Player contracts and transfers

decent window imo, a Celtic ST holding pal messaged to say he thinks Ralston better than the majority of their support consider him to be, Holt is a good addition to the midfield and if Stevie May gets going the season might not be as pish as feared.

lot of pace on the wings, Drey Wright on the way back......

feels quite strange to be bottom of the league yet feeling optimistic........

This has ended up being a decent transfer window. Imagine, however, if we’d have been able to start the season with those players. I think we’d probably have 7 points rather than 2.

Often, it’s not about the players but the atmosphere around a club. If the fans feel positive, the players feels positive, you can win games you otherwise wouldn’t. We are a club that goes on great runs when confidence is high, and awful runs when it’s low. This needs to be taken into account when it comes to transfer policy.

Needs time baptism of fire against Celtic never helped, hopefully perform better once he settles down

Couldnt have been easy playing alongside a player that only ever wanted to point his finger and blame others. Things should be better now.

Celtic pal of mine said something similar, Ralston was a sub against Hearts and err us!  Timothy still have hopes for him hence the contract until 2022.  Maybe wee Neil is doing his big pal a favour.

Don't think I've ever seen Holt play (or noticed him, at least). What kind of midfielder is he?

Energetic, ball winning box to box. Scores a decent amount of goals but see him more in the Chris Millar mould.

Quite happy with Ralston,Holt & May. Think they should improve the team.

Not happy with other 4 that came in earlier.

Probably the best thing for McClean to try & find another team. Was a decent player but not sure he could be a regular in premiership. Showed a lot of class in the way he handled it.

Not sure what Tommy is going to do with McMillan,Ando & Callachan who seem to be out of Tommy's plans.

Ando may be into coaching & could be called on in an emergency.

Callahan isn't poor so don't know why he is frozen out. Could cover for Muzz's suspensions & injuries

McMillan puzzles me. Doesn't look like he is going to get in the team so don't know why he didn't go on loan or terminate.

McClean wouldn't be on a big wage so it will not cover Holts wage.

Will the outgoing wagrs cover the incoming wages.

I’m not sure why McMillan is considered to be so woeful by Tommy, and yet he rates Kane. Did McMillan’s injury ruin his confidence? Has something happened behind the scenes?

Free agent. 

Would you rather we signed a second choice left back than a goalscoring midfielder?

 

If we pick up a free agent then fine but my question was what if we don’t.

if muzz or Liam pick up an injury we have options if tanser gets injured we re screwed

Fair enough, its a risk but I feel like I'd have taken the gamble on Tanser staying fit if the alternative was losing out on Holt.

Eh … is he like Chris Millar or can he score goals - you cannot have both ! 

 

ps Both Liam and Spoony can play left back.

Did Spoony not play full back in a game at Aberdeen.

Think it was the one we had to win to qualify for Europe not sure thou.

 

Think spoony covers right back if needed, think Liam Craig has done left back over a dozen times and can play there if needed,so not worried if we don't bring in another left back

Indeed, Liam played left back quite a lot in our barren spell of being unable to find a left back.  Would be easy to beat for pace these days.
