***Summer 2021 Transfer Window - Alex Cochrane signs ( updated ) ***


Recommended Posts

jamboinglasgow

He sounds promising and I would be please if I was a Hibs fan, but having seen the same with players signing for Hearts then turning out to be awful, I wont get the sackcloth out and start wailing.

 

But seeing it announced does make me miss the buzz of a new signing, especially one that is a bit out of the ordinary. Dont get me wrong, I am putting my trust in Savage this window that we will make the right signings which will make a difference over the whole season (rather just signing anyone just for the first few games) but would be nice to get at least 1 signing sooner rather than later.

Good addition to the discussion, pish as usual. 

Added at least as much as your “blah, blah, blah, more excuses” and was mildly funny.

So you just quoted a whole load of irrelevant players we cant in anyway afford at guessed their salary? 

 

Scroll on past if you're not interested AH. I was showing how many players are out there and what sort of standard we might be looking at considering there was a mention from an ITK poster that we were looking at 2 players who were playing in EPL last season. I stated this in my comment, and have stated several times previously that its probably untrue "but for arguments sake if we are...." 

 

Considering we've brought in a a couple of players from EPL in recent times, its not completely ridiculous to think that we might be looking at guys who are down the bottom of the pecking order at lower end of the table EPL teams. It all depends who else is interested in them because we will be able to compete with some Championship / L1 teams (which is likely where guys like that will now head) but not all.

I was thinking the same earlier when we were being mentioned with him. On paper looks a decent signing but our target market is Irish and English market apparently

 

Need to cast a wider net if true because whatever they are doing isn't producing.

Yeah I know exactly what’s involved thanks, it was merely to point out how many players are actually available. 
Maybe point out the poorly thought out excuses to the other folk that use them to deflect from why we haven’t signed anyone. 
They’ve had months to get players in. 

If you know what's involved, you'll know listing players from Transfermarkt is absolutely irrelevant to who Hearts have signed.

Not getting him till January at least but shows wee Ron is actually moving them forward. Not seeing much of that at Tynie.

 

Tbf promotion is literally moving forward, even it it from a place we shouldn't have been in the first place.

Maybe but hasn’t Brexit changed things a bit. A substantial share of the “literally hundreds” of suitable players aren’t likely to get work permits.

Does Hibs signing a player that hardly any person in Edinburgh knew about make things worse for us in this Window?

Pinning all of my hopes on this "playing at the top level" rumour, here are some possibilities: 

 

- Josh Sims (Winger): Never quite cut it at Southampton despite some early promise. Wasn't on massive money, maybe £15k p/w. (Possible connection to our new guy?). Would put him in the same sort of bracket ability-wise at this Mueller lad. Wages should be in our ball park. 

 

- Max Meyer (Attacking Mid/Winger): Was at Crystal Palace the first half of last season, they let him go to FC Koln where he didn't do too well, and they've released him. Ability levels as above. Wages should be affordable. 

 

- Conor Wickham (Striker): Another Palace release-ee. Probably slightly better than Boyce. Wages again though around £15-20k... 

 

- Muhamad Besic (Playmaker CM/DM): Always a bit strange he was at Everton for me. Never an EPL player but would suit us nicely. Will have been on decent money at Everton though (possible connection to SN?) - would love to get him as he's one of those skilful midfielders with a bit of flair. 

 

- Kyle Edwards (Attacking Mid): Released by West Brom. Quick wee lad, good dribbler, quick feet. Reading apparently interested. 

 

- James McCarty (CM/DM): Well al know him. Connections to JS and SN through Hamilton and Everton.

 

- Marco Stierpermann (Attacking Mid): Released by Norwich and apparently on very low wages by PL standards - rumoured to be on as little as £10k p/w. 

 

- Henri Saivet (CM): Left Newcastle last month. 30 y/o now but had loads of promise early on. Would be good for us I think. Wages with Newcaslte about £25k though.

 

- Jerome Sinclair (Striker): Watford thought they had a real coup on their hands when they snapped him up from Liverpool a few years ago as "the next Michael Owen"... Various loans later they've released him aged 24. Might be a shout for us with his pace. 

 

*Disclaimer before anyone starts* again, I'm not saying we are in any way going to sign any of these boys, just showing some examples of what's out there. 

 

 

I fully agree. We could contact every single one of these guys and we wold definitely by law of average sign 1 or 2. Wages should really not be that much of an issue compared to paying transfer fees. Fees need to be paid upfront, wages can be worked out over the year. We are not Hearts employees, but does look like we wouldn't do that bad a job at sourcing talent.

Seems a very good signing but then so did Perry Kitchen

I think he will be signing of the season. I rate him that highly. If he adapts but I believe he will and he won’t be in Scotland long. 

 

My opinion doesn’t count for much though as I’d seen McEneff countless times and thought he would be a massive coup (still could be) it’s likely he will be 2nd fiddle to a Halliday a player a don’t rate at all as a central midfielder. 
 

Let’s hope I’m wrong and he turns out to be awful.

They’re not the right players if they want more money than we can pay? They’ve have had months to find the right guys at the right price from those that are available. 

 

Wouldn't it be prudent for the recruitment team that's been in place for barely a fortnight to do some form of due diligence on the players identified months ago? Also they might well have said 'Hold fire on Player a if you can, I know Player B who is better that we might be able to get'?

Hopefully we can get a couple over the line in the next day or so. Folk creaming their pants over a guy from the USA we hadn't heard of yesterday. Away and take a break and have a word with yourself. He might be decent but if he is as good as some on here are saying he wouldn't be signing for that s**e over the road.

Any good American players are snapped up by European clubs very quickly. The ones left play a type of football that is about as far removed from the Scottish Premiership that you can get, in conditions and on pitches that couldn't be more different. This signing will be straight from their owner.

August 1st. That's the date now IMO. 

 

There won't be a signing before Celtic.

 

The team that started against Stirling is the team that will start against Celtic. I'm certain of it. 

 

The question is will we hit page 500 before then. Every chance. This thread will go down in KB history. 500 pages without signing any new permanent players.
