Injured players take longer to get back up to pace, Doidge is out until Xmas possibly longer, Murphy and Cadden seem to have so much bad luck with injuries which is a risk to us.

Your right Bradley should be knocking on the door, although he and a list of others are evidently not good enough or experienced enough for Ross & Co, add Gullan, possibly Allan to that list, Drey Wright it’s never going to work for him here, he tries but is out of depth at times, Gogic, McGinn have reversed in their development and they are both a liability. Then we are stuck with Hallberg and Mackie or both would be on the list of not good enough.

So some weaknesses have been addressed but evidently more haven’t which is a concern for me and that’s the reason why I don’t feel we have the squad in depth to fully challenge, and I am talking about better quality coming in and replacing the injured players, ones not performing and ones who simply aren’t good enough

Doidge hasn't been included in those numbers because he's half a season away.
Cadden will come back and make his way into the team.
Murphy I'm not convinced he's seriously hurt himself, more a precaution taking himself out of the game there.

Gogic and McGinn are out of form, form doesn't last forever so I expect some improvement there (Ken McGinn has most assists for us this season?)
Hallberg is a good backup, he's never shown to be not good enough, you're quoted as preferring him to Newell.

What weaknesses haven't been addressed?
Allowing crosses isn't a single player issue, it's a tactical issue imo.
Allowing runners from midfield is a squad issue, not 1 players problem.

The only real weakness for me, is a 6ft6 gk who doesn't claim crosses in his six yard box, I hope this changes otherwise we're in trouble. Defending a ball that deep into the goals with a stationary gk is a nightmare.

I'm not worried
Not yet anyway.

And if we are still weak in areas, they will be addressed in January.

I know we've signed John,Paul and Stephen McGinn.When did we sign Ken McGinn?

Put arses on seats and would get the money back from that, plus other revenue from cup runs and 3rd place 😉, could also offer players plus cash deals we have plenty of them to choose from.

Players would have to agree to move too.

Not saying any of those players won't work or do the trick, but thats a very big outlay for any club.

11,000 season ticket holders.

You know as well as I do that money doesn't just go into a transfer fund pot.
Wages and the likes to keep paying.

I'd take one two or all 3 of them.
I think we have the money to do so too, but as above.
Big outlay. Not even against it.

Point being that if we don't seriously compete in this league this season and really make a fist of competing for third then it puts into doubt the Ronald Gordon vision. Season ticket holders are entitled to expect that this season we compete.

But the extra revenue would be from more ST sales and arses on seats with those three coming into the club. I really don’t see it being a big outlay either if we would be offering players too, We are already paying wages for players that aren’t contributing anything back. Ron Gordon’s ambitions about us being the third force in Scottish football seems to be all talk.

That's speculation.
I don't think we'd shift many more season tickets and it's not just a case of telling a player that they're going elsewhere now. They need to agree. Those clubs would rather have money than a reject too.

I think we'll compete for third and cups as we stand, like I said, I'd be up for us signing any combination of those players, just pointing out the costs involved would be significant.

I'm a season tickey holder and I expect us to compete too btw.
Difference being I'm not writing off the whole season already.

Your comments about the players we would offer is speculating also, the other team’s manager might really rate the player. The fans need a lift, they want to see improvements on the pitch and that stems on from last season and the brutal cup final.

We will just have to disagree on the increased ST sales and more arses on the seats as each of these players would improve us and would give the fans a lift. We have taken three players away that could easily be their best players in their positions.

If we remain finished for tonight I think more fans will be disappointed by yet another poor performance from our recruitment team and certainly won’t be challenging for third under our current squad.
