***OFFICIAL SUMMER TRANSFER THREAD***

Recommended Posts

As much as we rip the piss out of Hibs, their comical tactic of employing rapid wingers who were tinpot footballers but very fast works. 

 

Look at the joy Mulraney gets when running at people. I’d be open to another speedy winger as I think it would cause teams a lot of bother. 

 

If teams came to Tynecastle and had to sit on the 18 yard box to stop wingers getting in behind, it means Naismith can operate 30-35 yards out. With 1-2 creative midfielders, we would have a lot more success in opening teams up.

Yes pace can be a good substitute for other footballing deficiencies and excluding Mulraney we don't have many pacy players.

I think these types of players are good just get you out your seat once in a while..... even if they have no end product. 

 

I thought that’s what Morrison did when he came in as we had not seen that for a while.

Exactly. If you have searing pace in your side, teams will adjust to try and stop it. Then in turn leads to opportunities for others.

 

There is a fear factor around pace.

I'd be happy with that but it's not going to happen, he'll end up at Sunderland if nothing better comes up I reckon.

I can see that actually.

Well, those thinking we should go after Turnbull should move on at least.

 

Signing for Celtic. Motherwell record fee agreed.

Well he failed to get Sunderland promoted using that approach. 

 

You think he should be praised for that?

Bet Brendan Rodgers is a bit pissed off. They won't stump up £1.5m for McGinn for him, but they'll pay £3m for Turnbull for popcorn teeth?

Delighted to learn that he signed a new contract with Motherwell this generating a large fee.

 

Wish they would all to that to pay back the club that brought them through the ranks.

Though if Turnbull gets loaned out he's been bought for the next manager.

You post about Aberdeen a lot. McKenna being better than Souttar and Berra was a personal highlight. ?

Still bemuses me they thought they could bully Hibs into taking 1.5m. They've been doing it for years and you've got to give petrie credit for telling them to bolt and even more credit for not re investing the Mcginn money back into the team

I’m happy with the Naismith situation, we all know about his contract situation with Norwich and he’ll sign for us at the end of the month.

They've not got that one of Instagram (is there a footballer called Reay)

 

Would be an interesting one

 

Good signing. But our 3rd left back

 

When it comes to Hearts media always read too much into it IMO

 Neilson did the same at MK Dons. Personally I see it as pretty lazy, as a manager with ambition to reach the higher ranks of the game as a Sunderland fan you would hope Ross would have been studying the English leagues way before the Sunderland job came on the radar, studying what formations, styles, players win you games etc.  As well I would predict Sunderland will have a scouting team similar in size to Celtic and Rangers in terms of resources.  The approach he has gone for however appears to be based on watching Sportscene on a Sunday evening.   Failing to get Sunderland out of that league with their budget is absolutely terrible.
