If Glass wants to play with two strikers then he'll be struggling to pretend we dont need one or even two more

He was injured. Looked like he was holding his calf. 
Fair play, he played well bearing in mind he was in an unfamiliar position for him.

St Mirren have rejected Wigan's bid of 300k for Jamie McGrath. 

Cormack commenting at halftime that we are still looking to sign a player or two.

Ferguson will have drawn further attention after yesterdays performance.

If Ferguson is sold for say 3-4 million is it unrealistic of us to reinvest some of that to sign McGrath and/or Jason Kerr?

No, you’d hope at least half Ferguson’s fee can be reinvested. Add an extra mill on every game he plays like last night.

I think McGrath will leave St Mirren before Ferguson leaves Aberdeen. Does that mean we are ruled out? Possibly.

Coming back to this. I think having watched last night that really the third striker needs to be of a higher quality than I was previously expecting/accepting. It's not a squad player we need a decent third striker in this squad as the dynamic will completely change if JET or Ramirez are missing for a month.

Just read the last few pages of this thread. 

What a load of bed wetting going on from a few posters.

It's the 23rd July, window closes 31st August. Plenty time still to do business.

Not even convinced JET is an out and out striker. Clearly very skillfull but wants to play the game at walking pace, and moreso outside the box. Making the signing of another striker even more imperative

He's never been a conventional centre forward apart from latterly with Livingston.

I’d he could run, he’d be at a higher level than the Dons.

Has everything else, strength, passing, skill, just not very mobile & will struggle to last 90 minutes.

He was excellent for 65-70 last night then faded.

Yes he's definitely going to pick up a lot of minutes deeper and even midfield. Even if it was not our intention it'll happen naturally because that is what his game is about.

A third striker will pick up loads of minutes so it's an important part of the squad.

After seeing McCrorie last night I think he is going to wing it and go with Gallagher, Consi, Devlin and McCrorie for CB options until 1st January. About two less than we've been used to McInnes going with.

So it's only a winger and a striker we are looking for...

How good is the boy Hibs have signed?

He's got the crossing ability of Beckham, the dribbling ability of Garrincha, the heart of a lion, and an 8" piece as well.

What a player¬†ūüėć

Cormack did say at half time on Red Tv last night that they are still working on deals to be done by the end of August. The emphasis, he said, would be on quality.

Seen that st mirrens asking price for McGrath is 500k. Surely just get that deal done. Another striker(backup) and centre back (to allow McCrorie to play where ojo did last night) would complete the squad as well.

Punt Kennedy and Ruth , both not good enough. Also send Dean Campbell for a loan spell with Dundee or something, needs to play every week.

You'd be better playing McGrath where Ojo was

100%. We need another striker.

Got to be worth the risk/investment. We should be getting it done before season gets going properly as he may start season well & create more interest from teams we cannot compete with financially. 
 

Maybe try & offload Kennedy to St Mirren as part of the deal.

 

Provided they don’t push the fee up too much more if we throw in Kennedy

Not going for McGrath now is why we toil getting real money into the club! I know we don’t have the finances to do this type of deal too often but, 1 every 2 season should be the goal, pick up at 500k develop the player and sell for £3+ million and repeat. Real scouting is needed to get us back up challenging for every honour going

I was just thinking that myself and some ought to be reminded we won 5-1 last night without all these players we supposedly need.
