It's been over a month, what do we all think?

Struna - has decent ability to get forward, but not good defensively. Not a patch on Paterson.

Sowah - similar to Struna, and sometimes tries to do too much. No idea how Cathro thought he would work as an emergency CB.

Avlonitis - looked steady early on, but has looked dreadful in the last few games. Never seems to look forward for a pass. Needs an experienced head to guide him through games.

Hughes - the best of the short-term signings. Reads the game well, and our defence badly struggles without him. 

Tziolis - looks decent when given time and space, but he's coasting. Doesn't look all that interested.

Martin - slow as it gets, but at least showed some urgency tonight. Hopefully he can build on his cameo, but I can't see it.

Choulay - has his moments, but isn't very confident. Never looks like beating anyone, unless he goes backwards.

Bikey - looks up for it, but not seen enough to judge.

Goncalves - his effort can't really be questioned, but we need to figure out which system suits him best. Needs to vent his frustration in better ways than getting cards.

The wing backs have had their moments, but I think Hughes is the only 6 monther I'd like to keep a hold of. I think Isma should do well, but I can't see Martin working out long term.

Only Goncalves and maybe Hughes if he has anything left should be kept on.

An absolute disaster of a window which beats Romanov mad window for shite signings and that's saying something.

Although Sowah is pretty terrible, at least he seems to give a shit unlike some of the other jokers. Would still bin though.

Struna - meh

Sowah - bit of drive about him but pretty suspect too, look for better in the summer

Avlonitis - at first thought he was a slightly better Rossi, now think he might be a slightly worse Rossi

Hughes - best of the bunch so far, only game he looked poor in was Celtic, copes easily with every other Scottish side, probably worth another year

Tziolis - talented but no heart, bin

Martin - slow and unimpressive so far

Choulay - set up two goals moments after I deemed him shite against Motherwell but I still think my snap judgement was right, return to parent club

Bikey - raw as fuck, probably not going to be kept on

Goncalves - clearly talented and puts in a shift but prone to making daft decisions

Not seen enough of Choulay and Bikey, Isma will piss the league if we start playing to his strengths, Hughes should get another year and be made captain for his experience dependent on who we sign in the summer I suppose, Bin the rest of the January signings get a established number 1 and build the team from the back

Struna - OK as cover.
Sowah - maybe OK as cover. Can see why he was available.  Might be using that last sentence a lot here...
Avlonitis - agree looked steady early on, but can see why he was available. Might be OK at our current (ie among the also-rans for the SPFL).
Hughes - Don't actually think that what I see lives up the love he gets - an OK centreback. Having said that, 'OK' makes him comparatively a strong performer for us. Hopefully a similar level to Berra if he arrives.
Tziolis - looks decent but the formation doesn't help him - I think he could be used better but that depends on a better lineup in front of him for him to give solid back-up to - eg imagine a Mickey or Hartley + 1 other dropping back to collect the ball from him while he is dependable route to move the ball between the pair of them.  He'd look like a wise head making their play possible. Can see why he was available.
Martin - slow and becomes ineffective in the hurly-burly. needs coaching for the game he has to be able to compete in, then either he makes it & will be good or bin. Can see why he was available.
Choulay - As for Martin. Can see why he was available - we're trialling Stoke's player for them.
Bikey - didn't see him.
Goncalves - been OK and not OK, need to see more.

Hughes and Goncalves can stay. I like what I've seen from Choulay in spells, he adds width to a team that's so badly lacking in it and Sowah, despite being pretty poor, is still an improvement at left back so I wouldn't mind keeping him on. 

The rest though, get them all to fuck.

I'm not convinced Sowah is actually any better than Rherras.

Sowah is marginally better.

Doesn't matter anyway, Rherras the useless cunt says he's going to England.

Sowah is ganting. So is Rherras. Oshaniwa is an imposter. 3 shots we've had at replacing Kevin McShitty and we've fucked it up Monty Chuckle

I'd take Kevin Holt from Dundee Laugh He's at least competent

Yeah thought Rherras was starting to look half decent just as we brought Sowah in. I kind of thought Sowah would be cover while he was away at the ACON.

Sowah is a decent player, nothing special but competent enough.
