 Will we sign anyone in Jan?
Topic Originator: Never10yairds  
Date:   Thu 10 Jan 19:50

Big changes in the management and coaching staff over last couple of days obviously. Does this mean we can’t afford to strengthen the playing squad?

If we are able to sign anyone who’s decision will it be?

If you are the decision maker what position(s) do you prioritise?

Who might mutually terminate for a small payoff or none?

I’d be looking for a good centre back, striker and a winger. If I could only pick one.... probably a striker. Plenty players I’d be open to releasing if they were happy enough to walk.

I think we will certainly see some movement. We ought to move really as there are definitely problems in the team needing addressed.

A striker MUST be the number one goal. Would like to see a winger or even two added to the mix as well. A right back could also be brought in.

Definitely need to move some players on though.

We love Dunfermline We do!

I wouldn't personally, had enough upheaval as is.

Time to get the best out of the large squad that we have.

One position only needs filled urgently ie strike partner to Aidan Keena.

The rest of the squad is fine unless,like another club,we find a few million down the back of a sofa.

There will be very little movement ,having already brought in Aidan Keena,Malaury Martin and. Robbie Muirhead.The Chairman hinted at that.

We have three forwards we could off load but who would take them?

I can't help thinking that finances will dictate whether we can bring any new players in. The departure of AJ and SC will not have been without cost to our club, so our Board may not have much of a budget left over.

Equally, our new management team may feel there is enough quality in the current squad or there are no players available who are affordable and can improve the squad, which was always AJ's mantra - No point in bringing in a player who is no better than what we have.

Sound philosophy. Unfortunately for him, a number of his signings have turned out to be the very opposite of what he hoped for.

I think most of us agree that only one position needs to be tackled urgently ie the Striker to play beside Aidan Keena.

There is not much wrong with the current squad.

They have just underachieved.

A lot of reliance on Keena now.
We need to be thinking beyond his loan spell if we lose him.

I certainly don’t agree with that. I think that there are 6 or 7 players at the very least who are not up to the standard that we need, and the jury is still out on a further 2 or 3 more.

There’s nothing wrong with the current strikers abilities, if the new management team realise we can’t play high balls to them like target men and play a system that provide proper service from midfield they will score goals

I think they will score too if utilised better, but they also need to start working as a team or upfront pairing instead of like ten outfield individuals who don't seem to know where their playing partners will be half the time.

We also need to find a strong character to be the captain and leader on the park imo.

If we were to sign one player a winger would be nice, Daniel Armstrong from Raith?

Not at all, Eck. I'm definitely not a club insider. Just using both the brain cells I was born with to come to a reasonable conclusion. It's hardly rocket science, is it?

The club has spent a significant part of the budget earmarked for the January transfer window to pay off AJ and SC. There's therefore less money in the kitty to spend on new players, so Crawford and Shields will just have to make the most of the squad they've inherited, with maybe a player or two coming in or moving out

GG, a bit off topic, but my granddaughter and her class are going to East End next week.

From the descriptions given, I reckon you and David Honeyman could be involved, but the third name was Wullie something.

Do you know who that will be?

I asked her to get me some autographs for a laugh and she said in her innocence, do you want Fassal, cos you're often talking about him.

We have 6 strikers, there definitely won’t be a striker coming in! Faiss, Keena, Muirhead with Ryan and Longridge out injured plus Calum Smith has come back. There’s bags of talent they just need to hit a bit of form and I’m sure SC will be right on it!

I’m here to take over!!

Or Wullie Oliphant even, TAFKA. You'd think you'd be able to spell your Uncle Olly's Sunday name..... ☹

That mach1 is a right nosy auld got, isn't he? Mach, Dave is always looking for folk to help with the Stadium Tours. A knowledge of football and the history of the Pars is advantageous but not essential. I reckon you could easily wing it. 😊

Most visits are from around 9.30 am - 12.00 pm. Have a think about it and let us know. The pay' s rubbish but the job satisfaction is immense.

I think Lewis Morgan is bound for hibs, if not then I’m sure another SPL side. Can’t see Rodgers putting him back down to Championship level.

I'm sure if you email Dave he'll give you details of what is involved. Basically, the more guides, the smaller the groups and they're almost always accompanied by an adult.
