January 2022 transfer window

Recommended Posts

I'm not that disappointed by the window tbh.

We offloaded Hernandez, Gurr, Samuels, Longstaff and McGinn.

We've signed A 20 year old Dutch lad and an American youngster with supposedly a great deal of potential + we've added Adam Montgomery on loan until the end of the season.

I'd rather we signed no one than sign players for the sake of it. The summer is when we should see the club makes serious changes to the squad. This was the first look at what the recruitment team is striving for.

On the plus side, looks like we've hung onto Ramsey and Ferguson. So its not all bad.

So we've signed a 19 year old LB from Celtic on loan who can't play against Celtic.

An 19/20 year old Dutch winger from the Dutch 2nd tier

An American midfielder that's never played professionally, and is injured anyways. 

Whilst letting Hedges go for what is basically fuck all in the grand scheme of things

I would like to see justification for the boy Gunn doing the job he does. 

Absolutely this.

And we are still stuck with the half dozen or so useless fucks that should have been binned/not signed in the summer?

Tomorrow night has all the ingredients of being very very ugly.

I agree with him. It's been unbelievably shit. 

Wheesht… you’ll be accused of bed wetting. 

I think the general consensus seems to be it’s been a shit show.

Cormack will reap what he’s sown.

Better to aim higher and fail rather than sign bang average squad fillers.

Aye aim high like Montgomery. Right enough.

Seriously grim business from the dons this transfer window. Clearly the boy Gunn is way out his depth. Blatantly obvious we are needing another striker why wasn’t this apparent to the club?

Completely and utterly unqualified to do the job. If you want a Barrister you don’t just employ the keen lad who runs about collecting the papers, you employ a Barrister. At Aberdeen we decided we needed a DOF and appointed the nice chap who was good at admin. Absolutely ridiculous. Get someone qualified in to do the job.

If that's us done for the January window we've had the same success Glass would have in an Amsterdam window. One injury to Ramirez and Aberdeen 0 will become a Saturday afternoon staple.

Ruth aside, are there no other young strikers ready to step up and at least make the bench? I'd rather bring on a promising youth with 20 minutes to go (and at least see what he's made of) rather than JET who has already run out of breath during the warm up. You'd at least get some energy and enthusiasm.

Cormack, Gunn and Glass are all out of their depth here. Only debate is which one is worst?

Weve decided to go with no back up striker. It's not a successful window.

We decided to sell McGinn and Hedges, and let Samuels go when we had only one replacement lined up, and Watkins was out for 2-3 months. 

Hedges in particular could be a very big fuck up now.

We are certainly not stronger than we were and the management will be praying the dutch lad is an instant success

They’ll say that Besuijen is the replacement.

But I get your point.

We needed an additional winger, unless they’re counting Hayes/Montgomery as that?

What baffles me most is no new striker - that’s football mismanagement.  
If Ramirez gets injured we’re fucked & he looks like he needs rested or is running on empty as it is.

Harvie is going to be good but he's only 16 or 17.

50 odd minutes left. Plenty of time to sign King Joey for tomorrow night.

Gunn needs to be replaced. It’s a key role and it needs an experienced person in it

For youth to flourish they need to be playing alongside quality and experience. Given the money available I’d have expected at least one more signing and someone with that quality and experience needed. What we don’t know is why targets are saying no (given there are so many variables).  Concerning. 
 

Here’s hoping big changes come in the Summer.

Yeah but none of the shite managers Milne appointed (& there was plenty) got excused from blame & sympathy for being appointed by an incompetent chairman.

 

It’s fkn sickening to see the shite some are spouting in continued support of Glass.
