Some good players in there but we have to not fall into the trap of signing too many players from lower leagues and smaller teams at once unless we have very, very good players around them, which we mostly don't yet. One or two at most. 

 

True, was thinking Edwards as Kingsleys number 2, Shields as a forward option and Hendry looks like he's ready to make the step up. 


We do need better senior players though, absolutely.

Still talking with GIno who apparently wants a deal

I’m absolutely all for this deal. I get the concerns about injuries but we’ve lacked players with his energy and drive for far too long. Well worth the risk that he stays fit.

Good if he's fit. Probably the most direct player we've had since Suso.

Still can’t believe he failed to put that chance away in injury time against Celtic 😤

Can't argue with his goalscoring record but his age is a concern. I'm very undecided.

Like the look of Pinnock and Kiltie from Killie, think both are free agents at the end of the season.

 

Yup.

I would rather we target players that are up and coming with the desire to improve.

Some of the names mentioned in this thread some up how low a level we really have reached. Duku🤣🤣🤣

 

FWIW the current management should not be getting a penny to spend.

 

Can’t sign them all, but a few from this list would be fantastic:

Jamie McCart

Jason Kerr 

Alan Campbell 

Regan Hendry

Ali McCann

Hakeem Odoffin

Josh Ginnelly 

Lawrence Shankland 


More me we need a first eleven centre back, a first eleven central midfielder, a first eleven winger, a first eleven attacking midfielder and a first eleven striker as minimum.

The current management team already signed two of those players for what it's worth. So maybe you're on the same page!

Ali McCann would be a great signing, pretty sure he’s an Edinburgh lad as well so could be a Jambo?

5 pages long and just shy of a week old and I've been too scared to open this thread up until now.

 

The thought of us identifying and bringing in players gives me the absolute fear.

Have they suggested many, or any, of the names mentioned on here?

 

Also, surely the targets people are identifying in this thread don’t depend on who the manager is?

Yeah I can only recall one player reported that we are looking at (Roberto Nditi) and obviously Ginnelly. Its actually been surprising quiet in players linked considering we will looking to sign quite a few this summer.

It's been mentioned in the press we're interested in the Forfar defender and Waghorn at Derby.

I think the Forfar defender is actually not necessarily a bad thing, though I’ve never seen him, but one for the future. 
 

Not overly excited if we sign Waghorn. 
 

But again, it’s speculation.

Why, not? Andy Webster came from Arbroath and he didn't do too badly. I don't know the Forfar player but ld rather take a risk on a player that's cheap that could potentially pay off rather than pay over the odds for 30+ yr old journeyman looking to top up their pension and not giving a rats ass how he performs.

Ginnelly gets a big yes from me.  Risky signing considering his injury problems this season but he contributed more than enough to merit a deal on terms that suit us.

 

Plenty players out there who are affordable and would do a job from the Premiership and beyond, but when you see some of the players available you realise there is a lot of shite in this league.

 

Ross Laidlaw?  Elliot Parish?  Sherwin Seedorf?  Stevie May?  Coll Donaldson?  Nah, no thanks.  The Ross County guys aside, these guys don't get regular games for their clubs.  Why would we want them?

 

Aberdeen have been successful in the past by signing the best players from other teams in the league in positions they need to strengthen.  We need to try and mirror that approach where possible.

Remember that Arbroath defender we signed all those years ago called Andy Webster? Good players are out there in the lower league and we need to get back to finding them.

Robbie has mentioned in the past the the Irish market is one we will focus on and we, if I recall, linked with a right back from NI.

If he replays it in his head. 

 

He dummies the shot and stops the ball dead, watches the defender and keeper dive into the next postcode and side foots into an empty net.

Again so tone deaf, why would we expect us to sign 11 players of peles quality. We just want sensible signings that improve the team, not 4 year deals thrown at unknowns, not 3 year deals for players who are widely known to be crap - see Connor Sammon.

A fit Josh Ginnelly improves our attack enormously so he's definitely worth the risk.

Decent enough, makes sense. 

 

Bit disappointed Pele types won't be turning up tho, probably rules Messi out. 

Was hoping the FoH contributions would get us a Pele as well :( 

 

In all honesty, this is what we want to hear. Quality not quantity. I'd much rather we signed 4 really good players than 10 pish ones. 

 

---------------------------------

 

Noticed he mentions England a lot when he's talking about transfers. Here's a snippet of those who are out of contract down there and who might fall into our sort of budget:

League Two: (although apart from a few exceptions I'd like to think we're aiming higher than this)

So looking through this thread basically anyone who plays well against us or plays well in the most recent matches to be televised should be signed? Including lots of people recommending a centre half from Dunfermline because he scores a few goals, the same Dunfermline who leak goals for fun. 

The best one had to be Kyle Benedictus (think it was after the 3-2 loss). Still can't believe someone seriously suggested it.

 

Regarding Dunfermline, its interesting that there were quite a few people after we lost there at the start of the season banging on about McInroy and Turner.  McInroy has only made 10 starts all season and Turner was punted out to Airdrie in January.

Robbie does himself no favours with the Pele jokes. 

 

He really doesn't read the room, nor do those within the club. 

 

There are enough jokers at the club as it is.

 

Ginnelly would be welcome back.

Good shout tbh.

 

I saw a quote from GMS saying that he’s expecting far more attacking football next season, the problem with that obviously is that we’ve seen Neilson teams in the top flight and it’s essentially Leveinball. 
 

I have very little faith we’ve got a season to look forward to. Also worth making the point that the cup exit to Brora has potentially cost us £3m considering both OF sides are out and it’s a straight by to the europa league play off round with the safety net of the conference group stage below. (Assuming we could have won it)

Ginelly? No thanks.

 

He's undoubtedly a good player but he's never off the treatment table. We'll spend all season toiling in games and the post match pish from Bob will be about our terrible injuries. 

 

Let's spend the finite resource on people who will be available more than 50% of the time.

 

Let's not give Bob the money in the first place, rather give it to a manager who know what they are doing?

Our new SD should have a series of pointers that help decide if a player is the right one for Hearts before putting names forward to the Manager.

 

Number one is obviously the players footballing ability but there should also be a number of other factors taken into account.

 

One of those should be the amount of time out injured and what type of injuries the player has had etc.

 

Ok we all know that we could sign a player who has hardly had any injuries and then he gets one after signing for us but then it's about playing the percentage game.

 

We have either been very unlucky with a number of players of just not done enough research into the player history.

 

In the case here with Ginelly it seems that he has been relatively injury free for most of his career but he does seem to be a a bit of a nomad and has been at a lot of clubs which maybe is not a good sign.

 

If we can get him on a relatively cheap wage then he might be worth the risk but we definitely would need cover for him.

Such a poverty of ambition hanging around the club right now.


Ann is the first owner we’ve had in a while where they haven’t been utterly woeful on the business side, sadly I think she’s too caught up in the strategic long term thinking that she’s not holding the manager accountable for short term results (which is his bloody job). So we’re a complete train wreck on the football side. An academy which doesn’t produce players good enough for the club plus a first team that doesn’t have any hunger to succeed. It’s an absolute travesty and a colossal waste of the money the fans, benefactors and even Ann herself has put in. 
 

I’m trying to justify her inaction on Levein and now Neilson and that’s what makes sense to me. Problem is that she’s created a culture of failure through her lack of accountability in the football department. We’re in a spiral of ever declining standards and we need someone of real quality managing the rebuild of the football team. IMO that man is Alex Neil and Budge should be moving heaven and earth to get him signed up.
