My understanding is that a 'verbal contract' is the first stage in the negotiations, indicating that the club wants to keep you - and that is usually the starting point for the club & agent to then attempt to thrash out a deal acceptable to all. Once that is done, the club table the written offer which hopefully will requier tweaking at most and will be signed by all concerned.

If we haven't got past the verbal offer then I'm surmising that's because Dylan/Dylan's agent hasn't responded and is probably negotiating elsewhere.

I hope we can get Dylan to stay.

He has been telling players he hopes it can get sorted out as he loves it here.

When has this type of signing ever worked out for us, genuine question?

Thing is it's a patch-up job, like nearly all the January signings are in Scotland. The real team building is done in the summer when players are actually available to move and clubs have money to spend. we just have to get through the remainder of this season and try to finish as high up the league as we can. Our chances of success this season have not been helped one iota by us having to get rid of our best striker though and our marquee signing from last summer after only six months.

I think the limitations of the January window are recognised by most. If not they should be. It was more of a general question.

They are often, though interesting what is happening across the city. They sign a top quality striker in a little bit of a gamble as they will be paying huge wages. However unlike us they tend to believe in speculating to accumulate. It is not our favoured measure and certainly as Hearts found out, can blow up in your face. However if they get a good cup run, then they pay most of his wage. If they manage to squeeze into Europe, again they profit. They have also just signed someone on an 18 month contract, so doesn't look like a short term panic buy. I think some people here want to see just a little more ambition, but your point is correct, the whole Stokes situation is extremely frustrating to a support and club who see opportunities to move forward but held back by selfish attitudes and actions of individual players.

The Huns appear to be making a few handy purchases in the window too - undoubtedly strengthening their squad. Granted they are in a different wages bracket.

They've sewn up second with their activity in this window, for my money.

If they can stay a going concern, I'd also say that I reckon that'll be normal "predetermined 1st and 2nd" service resumed again for the rest of time.

I can't disagree abut them sewing up second place, much as I would like to.

Lennon quoted a couple days ago saying they wanted more if a look so they asked for another week on the trial.

I seen that mate, just even more confusing that the Swiss boy told people he has a deal. Maybe announce it on Wednesday when there could be more movement and gives us all a lift.

No sure this'll qualify as a "lift" if there's movement out the exit door...

Seems like a target man type by all accounts. What do you think the Swiss role will be?
