A massive month in the history of this football club.

- Get Daly/MacPhee/Levein/Fox to fuck and get Stendel's own men in.
- Come to some sort of agreement with as many of the current squad as possible and get rid.
- Get known quantities. No taking a chance on some Aussie amateur jobber, only take on known players who can do it at this level.
- Get everyone back from loan.

Hope the benefactor is feeling generous  Rolleyes

Can only see misery and more Wyscout diddies.

Monty Oh Well

If the situation is that DS asks for a left back, then Levein/MacPhee scout and provide one then we are absolutely fucked.

Who's going to do the negotiating to get players if Levein's phoning it in?

If it gets left to Budge Monty But

When was their party? Can imagine most of this lot not being too bothered about a Christmas party. Miserable bastards.

Who would want to come to us just now?

The availability in January is notoriously bad for Scottish teams - I'm not holding out much hope.

Could well end up like the Cathro window, unfit journeymen. Stendel really has been hung out to dry by budge, folk could turn on him before he has even had a fair crack of the whip

I really think the vast majority of fans, apart from the ones that still want to dismiss what Levein has done to this club will see that the damage was already done, Stendel is a roll of the dice that I don't think can pay off for us, if he lasts the season I think that'll be the last we see of him.

The guys we signed under cathro that January would have done a job under a decent manager/management set up (I include our, at that time, DOF, in that).

The only ones who could have done well, did, for the most part - Isma, Hughes, Struna was ok. Only really Tziolis who was a player but underperformed. Bikey, Sowah etc Mccringe

We simply cannot afford to make any mistakes and we cannot afford to waste any time bringing in players.

We can only hope Stendel has a list of players that he himself has identified that we go all out for because fuck letting MacPhee or Levein have any input on who comes in.

Avlonitis was rubbish but clearly a decent player. Tzioliis should have been great.

Anyway point is; stendel has to get a window equivalent to isma, Hughes, struna, tziolis, avlonitis.

We've threw players at it constantly but the only hope now is throwing more players at it and hope we somehow get lucky this time Laugh

Some interesting chat on KB saying we've spoke to Nicholson.

I never rated him that much but he'd easily be our best attacking player now.

If that's true it's a Levein signing. Lazy, no scouting required and boring. Absolutely no chance has Stendel heard of him.

If we are going to bring Stendel in without his coaches then land him with yet more Levein signings then we might as well be relegated now.
