Gauld deal done!
Scott Allan next PLEASE
If we've been offered striker Marko Futacs as been reported get him on board too looks like he could give us another dimension. We've not had a target man at Easter Road for years and this boy could be the answer.

haven't seen Gauld confirmed but agree he could be a good signing.
worry about scott allan though, he could have been signed on a pre contract but no sign of it. think either him or hibs have other options. last thing we need is a target man, we need forwards to play off a target man. kamberi at his best is a good target man. notice OZ failed to score against jordon with mclaren up front. no more needs said.

spanishhibby I can't see Allan joining before end of month as Celtic will try and get some money for him first, we'll need to trust he'll insist ER is his next move and is prepared to hold out. Unless the board stump up some money I think most likely it'll be another prolonged drawn out process.

I disagree I think a target man to hold the ball up and win the aerial battles is exactly what Lennon is crying out for hence his bemoaning of Kamberi. We're still putting crosses into the box despite our decreased quality from the engine room but we're not capitalising on them, in truth we're not even challenging for most of them. Kamberi will score more off the second ball with a towering partner taking the bumps and bruises, McLaren I suspect will be sent packing not performing and unavailable too often.

Agyepong remains an enigmatic mystery, promised so much but either injury or lack of desire to play probably confirms why Lennon is searching for what appears to be a direct replacement in the English loan market. I'd be amazed if we're going to play with what is normally classed as two luxury players, especially two that are unproven in the professional ranks.

I suspect an all action midfielder will be high up on the wish list, albeit most likely not of SJM's quality. With the exception of Mallan no other midfielder has nailed down a starting place so far and I think Mallan has suffered for it. We forget he's only a boy himself, before SJM left Mallan looked like a world beater and some quality alongside him would relieve some pressure.

I beg to differ Stevie Mallan has at no time looked a world beater, other than deadball situation he offers nothing! We all would look better players with better players around us but I would rather we just had better players than mallan!
