January window

Dusk_Till_Dawn

Not convinced we’ll have stacks of cash next month but fascinated to see what Danny S wants to do. Continental signings? Seemed to have an eye for a player at Barnsley.

 

What do we need as a priority?

 

Goalkeeper

Mobile centre mid 

CB if Souttar is nowhere near

What don't we need?

 

A right back as Smith is more than capable, apart from that...

Every aspect of his play was terrible yesterday. He does have ability though. Seems to really struggle with decision making and concentration.

Keeper obviously, centre back, striker and if we're being greedy, a winger.

Priorities imo are a keeper, a striker and a creative midfielder. None of which will be easy to find in January.

Seemed to have an eye for a player from the lower leagues in his native land.  

 

As said previously though, not sure how much dosh we'll have at our disposal to lure these players. The more worrying part is actually, if we were to go one in one out, who do we have that is worth a decent whack bar Souttar that would give us funds? 

 

I suspect this may have been part of the deal to get him here, the guarantees in January. This is the part I'm looking forward to, seeing how this plays out.

Noticed Liam Lindsay centre back who was at Partick played most games under Stendel at Barnsley in there promotion season, he was then sold to Stoke and has found himself out the team could end up here on loan in January

Obv we can't rely on Naismiths fitness . Uche , McClean and Washington don't score goals at any great rate . Keena may flourish under Stendel who knows . 

Good thing in he's got 5 games to take stock Would imagine a new goalkeeper is likely  and I've got a feeling he'll target an out and out finisher .

Does it wholly depend on who we can lose? The squad is big enough in numbers as it is without just adding.

That said would like some pace in the squad. When did we last have a flyer? Mind you I remember the hoo-ha about besliga signing, he was a flyer but shite.

rudi must stay

A commanding centre back (passing ability would be a bonus). A centre midfielder with an eye for a pass, a couple of pacey wingers and a pacey forward with an eye for goal

 

That's what we need

A better keeper.

A ball playing centre half.

A creative midfielder

A striker.

If he swings the Axe, I’ll quite happily carry it for him.

 

My player loyalties are gone.  Unless these players (and I include the experienced and established players as well) double their standards, double their physical and mental fitness and double their effort/passion, then in my eyes they should no longer have the honour of wearing the jersey and taking a wage from us.  Nothing would please me more than to see Stendel take a young, inexperienced Hearts team up the table, thus outperforming those who we’ve relied on too heavily and have rushed back off the treatment table for the sake of stopping the rot.
 

They’re all expendable now, not one of them makes a difference when it matters.  Couldn’t give a shit if Smith and Whelan are holding their own internationally, they can’t cut it against the dregs of the Scottish Premiership and that’s what they get paid good money to do.

Always thought mulraney looks 15 yards too deep at times. Get much more out of him when we play balls he can run on to and in behind back lines.

 

Pretty sure Stendel will make him better.

I heard that too. Makes you wonder what McPhee has been doing for the last 3 years.  

 

Just nodding along to every Cathro & Levein signing and never once raising questions about balance.

 

Needs punted ASAP.

Players available in January are generally not playing for a reason. It's not a great window for picking up anyone and we have had our fingers burned badly before. I would happily sign no one, stay up and plan for next season. Targeting the right out of contract players and moving players on in the medium term is the strategy I would like to see us adopt.

Maybe the only two we can move on.

Mulraney at his best is average. Terrible first touch and no end product. Can defend well enough and has pace. Nowhere near the quality we should be expecting from a Hearts player

He tried to sign Jason Kerr from St Johnstone for Barnsley. I’d be surprised if he doesn’t try again.

GK - Zlamal actually looks the best of the bad bunch

 

RB - Smith a target for English clubs according to one poster.

CB x 2 - Dikamona and Berra can’t be considered good enough

LB - Hickey apart.....we don’t have one.

 

RM/RW - we don’t have anyone good enough to hurt teams

CM - we don’t have a playmaker....nobody to make a killer pass.

LM/LW - see RM/RW

 

CF - we need a couple of mobile forwards who can score goals

 

 

Pretty sure this is what I said in the summer though.

He’s Hibs to the bone, wouldn’t touch us with a barge pole.  From Penicuik, he’s pals with the son of one of my workmates.

Not a route I like but maybe a couple of loans in the right positions. He may have ideas from the bigger clubs in Germany. 

 

A mobile midfielder and a striker would be my priority.

Debut 4

As a couple of other posters have said a mobile midfielder who likes to get in the box and a decent finisher. 

 

While this thread is specifically about players it can’t be ignored how a more positive system and mindset should help the team and some individuals to be more effective.

He will need at least two years to sort this IMO. We simply do not have the cash to pay off all our first team playere so we will need to gradually phase them out over time.

 

So fans will need to patient. But I doubt they will be and the first run of bad results they will jump on Stendals back no doubt
