Short of Kevin Nisbet being sold,this must be about as bad as it could get.

Though Stevie ,in fairness,did extremely well in bringing him here in the first place.

Let's hope Crawford has anticipated the problems up front we now have. With the gates dropping I imagine we might not have the funds to bring players onboard. Looking forward to the seaside league next season...

disappointed they couldn't leave it till after this Saturday but it is what it is, the parent club calls the shots.

a tiny crumb of comfort is it isn't in the last minutes of the window, got 3 weeks now to get the squad sorted for the final games although ideally that will all happen before the Dundee game on the 24th.

We need signings before the Morton game, never mind Dundee. We are right in a relegation scrap with them and the other dross around us. We need to wake up and face reality here.

Aye the same thing happened with Keena last season the day before we played at Tannadice and we had to go with Smith up front.Even if it happened at the beginning of the week it gives you more to time to plan for it.Sounds like we might be cobbling a team together for Saturday.Morton look a big price at 21/10

What a bunch of sweetie wifies (and that might be an insult to sweetie wifies).

One of the few things we can confident about is SC's ability to attract the odd decent loan signing.

It must have been obvious for weeks that the jambos were away back to Tynecastle. I don't work in football, but I'd assume clubs let each other know some time in advance if someone is likely to be recalled or not.

We've just let Andy Ryan go to Airdrie on loan. That suggests that resource is being freed up to bring in someone else up front, plus some other new faces elsewhere.

Can we have a minute or two of positivity ffs.

I agree that he can attract strong loan players, but is there not a limit on how many domestic loans we can make each season, or am I imagining that?

If so, I think Ross is our 4th, out of possibly 5?

You can have a max of 4 domestic loans at one time. So we currently have 3 spaces available.

SC attracts nobody to EEP, the pounds and pence attract them.

Regardless who he brings in ....and it better be at least three experienced players ... the question that needs to be asked is can he mould new guys with what we have into a team that is capable of escaping the relegation pay off place...?

I think we all( well most of us) know the answer to that.

"SC attracts nobody to EEP, the pounds and pence attract them."

Disagree. I'm all for giving Crawford stick on his win ratio and ability as a manager, which is warranted. But the loan of Anderson last season and the 2 hearts guys this year has been as a direct result of his relationships in football IMO. I for one think Crawford's work in transfers has been where he has excelled bit obviously his managers skills are limited.

Pretty sure Nesbit was very vocal in interviews about the presence of SC being a big factor in him signing.

As ever don’t let the truth get in the way of a good story.

I think Bruce Anderson was similar.

I'd heard that McNamara was pretty pivotal in bringing Anderson in last season, that's not a wind up either.

can only sign what is available, the experienced tag gets thrown around but the reality is there are very few of these guys around before you even look at if they are available/within budget.

might be a replacement for Kiltie in before Saturday according to the official site.

Kiltie very good with ball, that is for definite but when the opposition have it, very lazy.
He doesn't do the chasing down that Nisbet does.
Probably the reason he hardly touched the ball when put out on to the wing , never seemed to want to get involved unless he had the ball at his feet.
Certainly will be a big miss going forward....

We also now have good contacts at Hibs who have a very good youth development system and a big squad some who I dare say won't fit into the new management plans there.

I wouldn't be too worried about getting in some decent signings/loans during the month.

There is no way Macnamara brought in Kiltie as all he’s brought in are brutal.
Callum Smith i has been played out wide for Airdrie so he’s not really an option up front.
SC has a big job on his hands now as we could easily be in the relegation zone soon.

Stunning logic typical of so many posters who have already made their minds up about someone. Ironically, if Macnamara didn't identify Kiltie as a good signing, presumably Crawford did - but isn't he useless too?

Kiltie was never a Macnamara Loan deal wee eck! That goes with the hearts boys aswell.
Now the pressure is on SC to see he gets in and hopefully leave Macnamara out of any deals imo.
If Nisbet goes for money then let’s see who comes in?
If not then bring on the Morton!

Was Jackie Macnamara not credited with being instrumental in the recruitment of Ryan Dow whose career progressed at Tannadice while JM was manager?

I wonder if EEP's source is the same person who told him Dundonald Bluebell wanted rid of Jason Dair?

Yes I always wondered how that worked-surely a conflict of interests? How can he be a player agent and be expected to get the best deal for both the player and the club?
Is consultancy in this situation just a glorified term for a scout?

I just read an article in the Scotsman reviewing all 35 of his signings for Dundee Utd.Ironically, a couple of notable exceptions aside,they reckoned it was his recruitment that cost him his job.6 out of 35 were rated as good signings.

I wasn't talking about your detective work in the transfer window, EEP. My reference to 1981 as your birth year was a big clue to other posters as to the username you used to post under before changing it due to the amount of stick you were attracting.....

You cost me £20 to the lift fund for disabled fans at East End Park. Maybe that's how you got the idea for your new handle?

You reckon? There's an uncanny resemblance between your controversial posts and those of someone who stopped posting on here just before you appeared - he called himself 1981par. Like you, he had his sources and announced on here that John Potter was off to Sunderland a couple of days after I'd spoken to him and he'd said he'd had no contact with the club and he was happy at EEP. That ended up with me paying £20 to the Lift Fund as a result of losing the bet/argument.

I've no regrets as the money went torna good cause, but here you are with your controversial posts and reliable sources - just coincidence? Maybes aye, maybes naw. I wouldn't expect you to admit you're one and the same, posters who change their username usually do so for a reason. Why would you want to blow your cover and attract more aggro than you already do?

Lee Ashcroft was instrumental in getting Kiltie over and he will be a big miss. I really liked him - intelligent football player.

Nisbet, Murray, Dow, Comrie, Turner etc were scouted by a former player and he may also have been involved with the Anderson loan?

Correct. Ashcroft's connection is the reason we got Kiltie, also Edwards and now Thomas from Killie.

Kiltie is still very young and has done really well to come back from serious injury which kept him out of the game for almost 2 years.
