 New signings??
Topic Originator: EEP  
Date:   Sat 26 Jun 23:35

I like PG but our team is not no where near challenging to get into the Premiership… we need players in and not looking at a Queen of the South player that was brutal last season….. let’s get going to finally push for promotion this season.

Trialist in midfield today was Dan Pybus (formerly Qos) according to posters on P&B.

If that`s the standard of trialist we are looking at deary me..

I’m fine with PG taking his time over signings and not just signing for the sake of it, plus the two he’s got in are of good quality.

The only concern for me was that he said we’d have 5/6 in the next couple of weeks before the competitive season starts (10 July), then yesterday he said he’d be working right up until the deadline closes to get players in. He hopes to have one or two in this coming week and then the rest before the window closes. Surely the window doesn’t close until September? Would hate to think we’ll be waiting that long to complete the squad.

He keeps mentioning COVID being an issue, yet it doesn’t seem to have been an issue for others in our league.

I might get shot down in flames for this. Has anyone thought that the players who we are looking at are possibly frightened about signing for us. PGs playing style and work ethic may be tougher than at other clubs. I was at the Spartans game and most of the trialists worked and tried. Rice was a standout, but his demands apparently were more than we were prepared to pay, were there no discussions before his trial. I felt sorry for the lad who was sent off, it was a friendly the referee coulb have booked him and also spoke to him telling him to calm down. I wasn't there yesterday but only having 2 subs on the bench was worrying. Hopefully things will get sorted, but I am getting worried.

he said hopefully we would have that amount in in the next couple of weeks, not that we definitely would. every team will be doing the same for the whole window so there is nothing in that at all.
the covid rules are a problem for every team, some will suffer more than others if you can put it like that depending on who they are looking at etc etc.

"Has anyone thought that the players who we are looking at are possibly frightened about signing for us"

yep thats it...

It`s also concerning that several of our first team appear to be having a disrupted "pre-season"-Watson,Wighton,Wilson and Dow are all out injured. It`s going to take a while, even once we get the numbers in , to gel as a team.

Just chill. Pretty sure he knows what he wants. I'm pretty reassured that he has been able to discount the ones he has had on trial already, he isn't just going to sign anyone. He has already said he would prefer to have a squad of 20 quality players than 25 that are just making up the numbers. He might perhaps see something in players like Pybus, which he can make work for the way he wants us to play

I think we need to cut Peter a wee bit of slack. It won`t be easy bringing in new faces, there are only so many players out of contract. The club has has limited finances and must spend what they have wisely. I imagine 1-2 permanent signings will happen but the rest will likely be loans that might not be in place until August.

I thought we played some nice stuff on a very sticky surface. Thought Pybus had a good first half and a fairly quiet second half. Was disappointed for Lewis McCann who played ok up Til he missed the easy chance (well it was saved) and then it looked like his head went down a bit. Lad needs a goal or a proper run in team in a settled position to get going, and when he does there’s definitely a player in there. Not too concerned about the results of the two games as we’re creating plenty chances. Signings will come and be rapid fire like Todorov and Mehmet - both deals were done quickly without the usual leak 48 hours before. Maybe that’s a sign of how Grant likes to do his business.

Agree with the above. He needs time and don`t think there is any need to be concerned. Players that we are looking at will be training at other clubs and playing trial games so should be reasonably fit. The guys that are injured he knows already. What is strange this summer and is another reason not to be too concerned is that nobody has really been signing many players, apart from Kilmarnock, and I am really happy with their signings from our point of view. I might be wrong but it seems like there are less players out there looking for a gig this season, maybe due to a couple of seasons in Scotland with huge cuts in squads. Like us it seems like most of the players jettisoned were loan players hence the looking at young English players. Not sure how we can hope to compete for that talent if they are good enough to get a game in League 1 or 2 down there unless it is appealing to their ambition to be recognised and fast tracked at the Pars like Nisbet.

PG has a hard act to follow when it comes to recruitment. SC hardly put a foot wrong in that department and made some exceptional signings, many of whom are still with us. Last close-season in particular just seemed to be a procession of impressive recruits who were all in place for the new season.

We`re in different circumstances now but I can`t understand why PG needed to give a trial to someone like Dan Pybus who he must have seen playing a few times for QOS in competitive games. I would hope his main targets aren`t players who need to prove themselves in a trial.

Maybe he was offered the player on trial by an agent and because of the size of the squad and injuries decided to give him a trial, even though little prospect of actually signing.

Would be a bit happier if we managed to address our main concern and signed a couple of quality midfielders in next week or so.

Wonder if the speculation over Nisbet transfer has any bearing on things. If he is sold for £3m and we get a decent size sell on clause that may have a knock on effect to the funds available to sign new players. Not suggesting PG will see much of the money, but may be some available.

Often a trial is more about how a person fits into the squad dynamic rather than just playing ability....

surely we all agree that yesterday's scenario only having 12 signed players for a friendly isn't a good situation.

It's not great when a new manager is trying to implement new tactics or new style of play.

We shouldn't just be signing any player either but I don't think our pre season is where we want to be just my opinion

course its not ideal yesterday but what can u do?

5 or 6 players out injured/rested, 4 trialists that were here told thanks but no thanks, should we have kept them for yesterdays game to make up the numbers when no chance of them staying?

not easy to get trialists in unlike normal circumstances, lot of the younger ones wont have played for best part of 16/18 months.

loans will be from premier league clubs who have really just started their pre season training so be a couple weeks before most of them decide who they will want to go out on loan.

Plenty of time still, there will have been offers made, players pondering. I’d rather time was taken to get the right type of player than just bring names in for the sake of it.

Todorov I think is an excellent signing, the keeper I admit to not knowing much about so can’t really comment.

Think the expectations are high with PG coming out saying we’re targeting first this season so the slowness of bringing players in might be making folk a little apprehensive.

I don’t quite agree with the approach of offer a contract take it or leave it, with any job there is always a bit of negotiation and if it’s the right player we should be tweaking things to accommodate if we can unless it’s an excessive ask ofcourse.

I’ll become worried If we start the season with Allan, Todd & McCann in the first 11, we’ll not be challenging for top spot if that was the case.

Considering they knocked £3m back in January from Birmingham I think Hibs won’t be budging for any less than double that at least! We’ve got a 33% sell on fee. We’re in for a decent windfall regardless how much he goes for but can’t see it being any less that £7m/£8m

The boys just turned 20 year old. Every manager thats come in between AJ, Crawford and now Grant have all rated him and his potential. His country have capped him at under 19 and under 21 levels. Saying “ No one is going to offer him a wage” is wildly disrespectful.

Yeh, 37 appearances for club and country as an alleged striker and no goals , only player I know who’s actually touched the ball less than his number of appearances. I’m sure there will be plenty clubs clambering for his signature to to give him a wage 🤣


I'm sure the many managers, and coaching staff at club and national level that have worked with him closely over the years are well placed to know what he is capable of. Otherwise, he wouldn't be here, constantly making the match day squad. Peter Grant certainly seems to like the look of him, probably because he knows there is a player there, and believes he can help him kick on.
I'd certainly trust the coaching staff over the punters on here

Wikipedia need to rectify there error then as they have 0 goals for the under 19’s, maybe he scored a couple doon the glen in the summer holidays as well but not sure why people think PG sees him as part of his plans, he’s had a couple of run outs in a few kick arounds as there is no one else to play at the moment. Made 31
Appearances for DAFC and if anyone can remind me of something remotely
memorable that he has achieved on the pitch is be very surprised as I’ve seen most of his appearances and he has contributed absolutely he haw.

That was an intelligent post 🤣 Not sure the manager can just ditch with no one else at the moment, as soon as he has some numbers he will be dropped instantly. I’m not stealing a wage from the club either. I noticed you never stated something that he has actually achieved that was memorable on the park, struggling to think of one after 31 appearances were we ? Anyway , my last input on him on this thread , I’ve made my point that the player is totally ineffective and no where near good enough for a team looking to challenge for the title. I hope he proves me wrong and you guys are all correct but I’ll not be holding my breath as he has had plenty of opportunity and taken none. Not one of you can even remember anything remotely memorable or effective he has achieved in a Pars shirt on the pitch yet you’s think he is the future, time will tell.

He had an outstanding performance up at Inverness this season. Was probably man of the match.
Other than that one time he has certainly failed to deliver.
If we are behind in a game and either Matty Todd or him come on you might as well give up cause it's like going down to 10 men.
He is obviously capable as his performance at Inverness shows so hopefully Grant can get him doing it week in week out.

Football`s full of instances of players turning their careers round after disappointing starts; Andy Robertson, Kevin Nisbet and Shaun Rooney spring to mind from recent times. That won`t stop some `supporters` having a go though. They`re convinced they can spot a wrong `un from a mile away.

McCann has just turned 20 and has a lot of potential. Those appearances are mostly 5 minutes from the bench or shoved out on the wing by Crawford inexplicably. I'm not sure why he wasn't loaned out but it's asking a lot of a kid to just come in and score a bunch of goals without playing much senior football.

Whether it's here or elsewhere he needs a consistent run of games playing as a striker, personally I think the club has managed his development pretty poorly over the past couple years. I'd rather persevere with him as Grant has talked about and see if over the next year we can see signs of improvement whether that's at the club (although I highly doubt Todorov, O'Hara or Wighton will afford that opportunity) or out on loan at a level or two below. Not really seeing why people want to beat up on a young prospect rather than encouraging him to fulfil his potential

he has played wide at every level including international so that isnt new to him and not loaning him out, letting him go you need to replace him and doing that with a like for like in ability, positions and/or wage is not easy. this year could be different with Todorov coming in, possibly Kennedy or another wide player but he needs to play which is why i brought up trying to get him out on loan if that is not going to happen here.

Exactly, probably not happy at all the trialist`s names coming out at the Spartans games and wanting to keep a tight control of any images of who is training with us. Same as details of last nights game. Looking forward to some signings right enough.

Trialist names come out no matter what, fans at games will recognise players, hear the names, the media get hold of them as well and publish them,

On the lack of news from training ground, are u meaning from pre season with normally pics etc being posted on social media? That`s because they are training at alloa now and for some reason the club has said no one bar players and coaches inside the ground, not even photographer as that`s the rules we have had to apply with during covid, yet every other club has had their photographers and media staff in attendance. Maybe its cause our photographer doesn`t drive perhaps?

Back to the trialists, and the details coming out, am sure the agents involved will be telling clubs that their players will be on trial at other clubs not just where they are at that moment in time. Nothing new there.

As for players coming in at the start of the week, a few days is a long long time in football, deals can be done in principle and then at 11th hour someone comes in with a better deal and the player goes elsewhere, very possible this could have happened to and for us.

^^ and be there on a matchday in case of an emergency, being away on loan he cant do that and unless the covid rules change or have been changed he might not be able to train with us during the week....unless we sign another young keeper to do that but then why sign Currid too?

"what is going on with our lack of transfer activity"

way im looking at it is for free agents its a smaller pool of players available with the same amount of clubs looking, but there are more unknown/random players in it and possibly not enough resources to sort through them quicker.
add in brexit rules, covid rules, teams waiting to let players go out on loan until they get their signings first, doubts over crowds maybe affecting budgets and a new manager coming in 2 weeks before preseason....it all adds up.

the current injury list is a problem which doesnt help the lack of signings, if everyone was fit things wouldnt look as bad.

I am taking it that PG has not offered Isaac Rice a contract as he mentioned in an interview he would tell him either way to be fair on the lad so he can get a contract elsewhere if Dundermline did not sign him. So I am presuming he is not surplus to requirements as this was last week.
I am starting to feel that it is a lot harder to sign players and hopefully can get a few decent signings in soon… just to keep the momentum up of a new season starting for Dunfermline and make a challenge for the league this season.

Three signings we on so far then? Todorov, Mehmet and Graham.

Never heard of the boy and no idea what he is capable of, but I think centre-mid and wingers are far more important to address. Probably just be a squad player, this laddie.

Think we’re a good 7 or 8 signings away from a complete squad but I’m not getting my hopes up for more than a mid-table finish so far.

Not quite right. He wanted more money than PG was willing to offer him.

“ Three signings we on so far then? Todorov, Mehmet and Graham.”

Wighton joined permanently this window and there’s also Currid, which makes it 5. We definitely need more though, particularly in the middle of the park.

Could be a good signing, a big lad, coming in as Cove Rangers Young Player of the Season in what was a good campaign for them in which he was a regular starter. He is in his testimonial season at United so they have obviously seen enough of him to know that he is worth the expenditure of giving him a 3 year deal. It seems they expect him to be challenging for a first team slot with us, and expect us to be challenging near the top. They will know the standard he is capable of and won't have sent him out for a year if they didn't think he can cement a place in our team and play plenty of football. Could be a useful guy to have if we go with a smaller squad too, as like Lewis Martin, he has experience playing all the positions across the back four and as a defensive midfielder. A left footed player too, which is what Grant was looking for

The comparison with Tam Lang is hardly valid. Graham was already under contract with United and they decided to extend it by three years. If your thing is looking for negatives in any new signings carry on though.

Both these lads above wont have played much football if any since march 2020 remember.

Decent enough. Grant will have seen plenty of him and obviously thinks he will be a good fit for how he wants us to play. Fairly experienced and at 23, just the right age to really kick on now.
Grant said yesterday he was after 5 or 6 signings, so with him, Ross Graham and Currid signing, then we could be looking at 2 or 3 more. The squad looks like it's well covered except for perhaps a couple of central midfielders, I'd expect to see 2 really good ones sign on

I don’t know much about him to be honest, good age though, a midfielder that we need, capped at youth level with England and experience behind him.

Think the problem some folk have is with Peter Grant coming out saying we’re aiming for top spot this season, there’s an expectation we’ll sign some top quality players and would be good for someone to call some names out as there aren’t many, if any out there at the moment..Todorov maybe, we signed him.

What a honking signing! Another season of dropping in an out of the top 4 and watching another team stroll to the title is upon us. If PG being appointed as manager wasn`t bad enough the players he`s bringing really is. We`ve replaced an average manager with excellent recruitment with a poor manager with what looks like terrible recruitment.

The standard that should allow us to challenge this season. That is the aim and the pressure is on the club to at least mount that. Hopefully we can do it but we still seriously need to strengthen. I personally wouldn`t say Pybus is a step up to Turner for example based on what I`ve seen but maybe he just needs the right manager to get the best out of him.

Back in the day the signings of Norrie from Cowden, John Watson from Hong Kong rangers, Ross Jack from Dundee, Stewart Petrie from Forfar etc,etc,etc would each have been ridiculed on a platform like this.
In more recent times , Craig Brewster`s signing was not good enough for many.
.......And there are many more like that!

I just wonder who we should be signing to please some folk on here. There seems to be this theory that we have money to attract much better players than our peers. The fact of the matter being we are skint and have to build a squad for the season ahead.
Seeing as money is no object can we get Musialowski from Liverpool into midfield on loan.

Too many people on this thread are “underwhelmed” by signings. Which of us can watch a trialist in a game and come to a view on his strengths, weaknesses and suitability for the team? That is where a manager, who properly knows the game can really score.

I’m not fussy if we don’t have any real stars in the squad, so long as we have a good team. So often the team can be much better than the sum of its elements.

Our fans are no worse, and indeed no better than any other set of fans when it comes to negativity re signings.

You have a very insular view if you think that somehow the thought process of Dunfermline fans when rating signings is different to other teams, do you think that the people of Dunfermline are so negative we then in turn grumble more about signings? Absolute nonsense.

Team makes signing, fans either overreact positively, or negatively. As they have at every club ever, for as long as football has been a sport.


QoTS fans weren't even sure if they wanted to offer him a contract, did you expect glowing praise from Pars fans? If he's a success, or failure it'll have nothing to do with the reaction on social media.

This forum has been declining for donkeys, it’s of no surprise.

Fans on here can’t constructively take a loss without the manager facing the boot, they can’t give a player a break when he has an off day and for some they can’t even get in the door before they get criticised, a 23yo lad ffs.

As I said Peter Grant, nobody wanted and was met with disagreement, an 8 minute interview changed the view, 8 minutes….

Pybus plays a couple of good games in a row and fans will be raving it’s been an excellent signing.
It’s just the way this forum works, you can fight it or just let the whiners whine until they get over their overdramatic and attention seeking phase.

The fact is I bet hardly anyone on this forum actually knows much if anything about Pybus, some rate him purely based on his performances against us, some just look him up on Wikipedia and then think they know him inside out.

Truth is very little of us actually know much about football, including myself, when I read the posts the only one that comes immediately to mind is the reviews of Socks where I think he has a decent handle on the games and how to assess them.

Too right players reading this forum (which they will) find this site hilarious, it’s all ok though…because other teams do it…ffs.

Berry`s excellent post sums up the state of social media in general and dafc.net in particular.

I too was impressed with PG`s first interview but surely we all know by now that managers are ultimately judged on results. I`ll be reserving judgement on recruitment, formation, style of play, tactics, etc until we`ve had a chance to see the team in action over an extended period.

Yeah Williamson is the lad that was at Arbroath last year.

I’d take him, young and showed real promise it would be another loan deal but he is an Oakley lad I believe so the locality could be a selling point.

Rangers will have the biggest say and if they want him in the premier that’s were he will be, although if we get Kennedy this may not always be true

The issue with any new signing is that because we have now waited so long and been told it's quality over quantity then I personally feel it raises the expectations of the type of player we need to sign.

On paper Killie have strengthened to a level where they are probably favourite to win the league.

Peter Grant has said our aim this season is to be champions so anyone we sign probably needs to be from teams at a higher level than we are at just now so we can really consider ourselves as title contenders.

The Scottish season starts early compared to others and the window has 6 weeks to run so there`s plenty time for new arrivals. With 40 odd years in the game I`m sure Peter Grant knows what he`s doing.

It's definitely a balancing act. The players who may be loaned out by bigger clubs, tend to go through pre-season first before getting loaned out. For instance, Henderson at Celtic will likely be available but the new manager will want to have a look at him in training and friendly matches first.

We've also got 4 or 5 coming back from injury, most of whom will challenge for a place in the first XI. We can't just load up on numbers now as it may cause problems down the line.

The same folk who were saying that Craw done great by getting players in early, at the end of the season, are the same ones saying Grant is doing the right thing by waiting and not doing early deals.

I hope the 5 players out are on the mend and we have a decent squad especially if Dow comes back.

Kevin Nisbet and Euan Murray both left for bigger clubs, and I would suggest Josh Edwards and Kevin O'Hara are both better players now than when they arrived.

Nisbet is quite possibly one of the shrewdest signings in Pars history the potential if figures quoted are anywhere near correct are of such significance to the club.
There were quite a few fees paid for players though that haven’t been such good business though but that’s the philosophy. You have a few punts and hope that one comes good.

yeh but he could be confident at the time last week about deals being done, then this week maybe player has pulled up injured, has to self isolate, other team has come in for them,

no win situation for any manager, says yes 2 definitely for next game to saying working away in the background. It's either oh he is telling porkies or it's not good enough and it's standardnon committal response.

Apologies of its already been said. But the lack of signings may be covid related. Ross County are now out the cup cause of covid. Makes sense to have a smaller squad till after the group stag is over. Less people to catch covid reducing risk of forfeited matches....

-We have actually signed them but we`re keeping them up our sleeves for a big surprise

-Waiting on the Nisbet money

-Players he was going to sign are now injured

-Someone else has turned their heads

-Not signing anymore in case they bring the virus

He mentions Covid at 4.40 ish, he was confident the signings would be done by the middle of last week, you can only imagine that someone has had to isolate and therefore signing couldn`t be completed. I think I heard Kai Kennedy`s name being put to him at the end and the reply was " he`s a good player"

It sounds as if PG has identified his targets and it`s just a case of getting the deals tied up. I`m more concerned about the lack of information about our long-term injuries - Martin, Dow and Wilson - who haven`t featured so far. It seems like McCann may have joined that group. When are they likely to be available for selection?

Know Martin has been training for a couple of weeks now but will be a whie yet u would think before we see him, Wilson and Dow got mentioned in the managers interviews last week and they are pleased with the progress, suspect Wilson be closer and wont be far off being involved in match day squads in the next couple of weeks.

McCann is seeing a specialist to see if needs operation or not which be 4 or 5 weeks out they say

On the midfield situation, isn`t it funny how some people moaned at previous players in the last few years for sitting so deep, taking the ball of the centre halfs 30 yards from our own goal etc...... yet that`s exactly how PG wants the team to play and people are behind the idea !!!

Will Dom be in the middle for most of the season is left to be seen, but ticks a lot of boxes people are shouting for in our midfielders, someone who can pass, cut teams open, the range of passing, drive with the ball.

With the quality we have already, playing and to come back from injury, then with the number of signings the manager wants, its gonna be some job for him to pick a best 11 when majority are fully fit !!! Lets hope he gets those picks spot on !!!

Just read Norwich and a team from France also interested. Looking likely that this ain’t going to happen now.

He’s contracted to 2023 at Rangers, was potentially going to leave before he signed his extension, a year on loan in the championship would that really add to his value?

Will he play every week at us? Hmmm hard to see where this goes now

Think it would take a pretty substantial bid for rangers to sell him but yes they could be waiting to see if a bigger offer comes in. Would've thought teams will be a bit more cautious in selling British players with potential given the brexit impact.

Unless West Ham see him as a future prospect and want to loan him out? They grab a potential bargain and he gets to stay in Scotland. If he does well with us they maybe bring him down to be a first team player?

Seems a big step to go from loanee at ICT/Raith to English Premiership. If he couldn't make the Rangers first team (yet) then presumably he's not ready for the West Ham first team?

Interesting signing; I remember being quite impressed by him when he was on loan at Thistle.

In other news PG has confirmed neither Dow nor Wilson will be fit for the opening League game at Morton. Neither has participated fully in training yet and it sounds as if Dow was maybe trying to do too much too soon. Article on COWS doesn`t go into detail about Wilson and Lewis Martin isn`t mentioned at all!

From Alan Temple at The Courier...

This time last week, Dunfermline's 'next signing' was 💯 going to be Kai Kennedy.

That, it is hoped, will still come in the fullness of time. Not exactly within #DAFC's control.

What is within their control is the arrival of former Partick Thistle man Reece Cole 🏁✍

Difficult to judge this signing as he’s not from the Scottish merry go round. Seems to have done well at Partick in a season that was cut short.

Another centre half and if we get Kai Kennedy then that might be decent enough although that will depend on the fitness of Ryan Dow and Wilson

From PG`s interviews he seems to put some emphasis on players being `footballers` rather than specialists in certain positions. He has already `converted` Comrie into a centre back. Along with Watson, Graham, Gaspuitis and, hopefully, Martin, haven`t we got enough cover in that position?

Possibly but Comrie will also be right back in some games am sure, it's shaping up reading between the lines in interviews that PG looking for 2 players for each position in the team, only real position doesn't have really at the moment is left wing back cover for Josh, certainly natural cover anyway.

If Comrie plays right back presumably we`d only be playing two centre backs in those games? Lewis Martin, if fully fit, could cover left back and left wing back as well as centre back.

Grant`s comments on him when he signed were he is a different type to what we have which makes sense.

adding Breen and Kennedy or similar leaves one more spot for now i reckon, after that players will have to go for more to come in and im not including Fenton and Todd in that.

So we have 21 players now and from the interviews another potentially 3 to come in as PG said up to 4 before the Cole signing.

This is what we have ideas of 2 players for every position just depends if we keep playing 5-2-3/3-5-2 or 4-4-2, for me we are bringing in another 3 a left sided CB/LB another centre mid and a wide player.

I’d look to loan out Fenton and maybe Todd although he showed nice touches the other day

Fon Williams, Mehmet

Comrie, MacDonald
Watson, Martin
Graham, Gaspuitis
Edwards, Fenton

Allan, Pybus
Wilson, Cole
Thomas, Todd

Okay, let`s for the sake of argument accept your premise that Smith is "literally the last player" you think we would ever sign...

Essentially, the point of a forum is to discuss issues and viewpoints and provide a rationale for or against various positions.

Would you care to offer something to back up your somewhat brave claim? As it stands, your comment is nothing more than a fart in the wind.

Impressed when I saw him with Caley.
Hopefully we see something similar or better.

KK`s on loan until the end of the season but Rangers have a option to recall him in January.


Which seems that about 9 times out of 10 teams normally do.

"But do we have enough in the team to win the ball back that could be the most important signing in terms of the first 11.

Squad wise another defender maybe"

would expect Breen to come in so that would be the defender, that might be it for now though. said in the past about trying to get McCann out and playing, East Fife screams an obvious choice for what they need too, let him go and bring in that extra midfielder?...for the 2nd time today preferrably my random Estonian midfielder lol!
