Saints Summer 2020 Transfers & Contracts

Recommended Posts

Callum says he has his eye on a couple of signings & thought he might get 1 in before Motherwell game.

He also wants to loan out a couple of young players. One I assume is Duffy. When do the lower leagues start ?.

Whoever we bring in I hope they can score goals.

That’s for sure.

I know people are asking for a striker, but I’m not sure we’ll get one considering we have 5. If we do, I imagine Kane won’t be offered a new contract. I think we’re looking for a central defender & maybe central midfielder, both on loan to & both to play back-up.

To be honest a striker wouldn't be a priority for me. Not unless there was an opportunity to get someone who was either significantly different (e.g. a big, powerful target man) or significantly better (e.g. Maksimov) than what we have already. I'd rather see us bring in a central midfielder. Not sure we need another defender but that would probably change if Duffy goes out on loan.

Looking at the squad where is our weakness? Is it at the back midfield or up front? Do we need cover or a better player? If it is a better player who is he replacing? For me it has to be a goal scorer but where are we going find one?

Maybe got five but we need one that scores regularly.

No chance the Chairman will pay for a new striker unless Kane is leaving. We’re not the sort of club that panic buys lots of players in one position just because they are out of form for a few games.

Callum Hendry scored a goal every 93 minutes last season.

That's certainly not going to happen this season. In football past seasons do not count unless you can put them back to back.

I think if we bring in anyone it will be from England & on loan so we can send them back when Scottish football goes tits up.

No way we will make permanent signings when we gave proven premiership players only til January.

Maybe we need players at the back. Watching the last home game against St Mirren Liam Gordon and Jason Kerr were the two best attackers we had. At one point one of them put a cross from the right that was met by tanser. Centre backs best footballers we had on the park.

We're interested in Craig Bryson apparently. I imagine he will push MOH for a starting place on that right side? Could be a good signing but another player who is hardly in his prime.

Bryson is a CM.

I suppose it wouldn't be a gigantic surprise if Saints were to look at Stokes now.

Please no. "It's not quite worked out in terms of the intense training schedule we had put in place" said Livi. There were excuses about the plastic pitch. I think this is all code for "he couldn't be bothered to get fit".
