He'd do.

 

Unfortunately he was Chicago Fire's DP last year on about $40k pw. Absolutely nae chance. 

 

They've replaced him at Chicago so he will be leaving but as you say unlikely

A penalty kick away from a cup win 2 years ago. Beat Hibs in a semi.

Yep. It’s one of those things you sometimes have to throw numbers at and hope one of them works, especially in January it’s hard, but we have 3 guys working full time on this and I expect before the window closes, they will have someone in who most folk say ‘ yep, he’s a great looking signing’ 


I’m sure they’ve said that with 25/50 guys. Problem is working out how viable the signings are and then if they are working out fees or getting the player to agree terms via their agents. Even then they may pick another club. A lot of ifs, buts and maybes. We may, for example, be looking to loan a player but their parent club won’t let them go due to a congested fixture list or looking to sign someone else first.

Which brings me back to my original point of the whole department we now have who's task is to find good players who are affordable and available. It’s not difficult to grasp what the purpose of that department is and we have had weeks if not months to at least have a short list

Yes but you can't make players sign for you ! Most think , reasonably , that we are aiming as high as we can . Obviously this makes it more difficult to get who we want .

Again , you don't seem able to grasp this .

Aye he has left - he's a free agent now, but aye he should walk into another MLS team and will likely still get good money.

Right problem sorted!!!!!!!

 

We can dream on a 6 month contract to get him an EPL gig I guess

 

But then again i dont think he fits the signing strategy lol

Issue is, mate, that's easy to say, but the difficulty is straight up finding the guys to spend that dosh on.  I think we're probably in a position to splash a bit of cash, but I'd think finding and then securing the guys is the tough part.  If we spend £500k on a player it HAS to be right.

 

Could be we're a bit rock and a hard place in this window.

 

Other factor which just popped to mind is I wonder if we're basically upping the quality we're looking for, and have a bit more dosh, and also looking a bit further afield at times, if that puts us into a harder market.  Whereas our competition was maybe Hibs, Aberdeen and maybe L1 and even L2 teams down south.  Are we now up against teams who can easily blow us out the water if they chose to cos we're simply going for guys good enough for a higher level?  Hard job, but that's the deal if we want to improve and we've not got a really dedicated professional team working on it, with a plan.  Was just a thought more than a concern.

 

I think your last paragraph is very much the case.

Three championship cups as a manager - he has won more cups with Hearts than nearly any other Hearts employee in last 40 years.

I have no knowledge, but I wonder if we’re setting up to take shankland in the summer. 
 

Wonder if that’s why we’re dragging our heels with a striker, unless a pearler becomes available. Will be a loan till end of season.

 

Shankland is a goal box predator and would easy tuck away 15-20 a season the way we’re playing

Don’t want to be sitting here at the end of the season having blown 3rd and bemoaning this whole transfer situation. It’s there for the taking but not with Boyce and a mixture of wood burn and ginelly at centre forward occasionally 

Hard to see how not, given that we were 8 points better than Motherwell, 10 better than hibs and 11 better than Aberdeen over the first 21 games with those players. There are no guarantees obviously, but I don't see how we're so certain to be so significantly worse over the remaining 17 games, relative to them, that we can't possibly hold onto 3rd with the squad we have.

Martin Boyle's away so that'll be Hibs season over considering they're absolutely useless without him 👍🏻

It’s easier when you accept that RN doesn’t really have the cup winning DNA. There will always be a game in a cup run that you know fine is tripping him up. Winning a cup under RN would be a very welcome surprise but I just don’t see it.

 

Off topic though so probably best left there.

 

Would have been better not posting it period. But when you crave attention?

Respectfully agree

Totally disagree.  Sorry, but this is shite.  That's what's shite.  This!  (sorry that's a bit OTT, but I disagree).

 

Where is the glaring goalscoring issue?  We're averaging 1.5 goals a game in the league.  Take a look at London Hearts.  That's above our history average.  Quick glance, we've averaged above that twice in the last 20 years in the top division (happy to be corrected, not a stats guy)

 

There's nothing glaring about that.  It's like folk are saying we would have scored those goals if we hadn't scored them!  Same as, if it wasn't for our goalie, we'd have lost more!  I saw someone on here saying our first goal was "lucky" on Tuesday cos St Johnstone left Gino space!!!!

 

We're doing absolutely fine.  And much of that without Boycie too.  There was also no Woodburn on Tues.  Natty yet to get his boots on too.

 

No one on here will say they don't want another forward or two, but to paint it like some kind of crisis is just a bit shouting at the moon for my liking!

 

That isn't all aimed at you Jimmy, just seen a helluva lot of folk gnashing teeth.  I doubt Joe and his team are sitting having cocktails thinking, ach it's awright, we're averaging 1.5 goals a game, like!  They're working very hard trying to find and convince the right guys.  Summer will be easier.

 

They could bring in the next Dauda, or Ngog or McCallum or any of these guys, easy peasy.  Me?  Don't want them.  We've got a great group who obviously work so hard for one another.  Need to be sure anyone who comes in instantly buys in to that too.

Thanks Big O - saved me typing all that out in reply 😄

The concern is if we were to lose one or two of those three to injury we would be in trouble and Boyce hasn’t been fully fit for weeks it seems

I appreciate that's a concern, and undoubtedly it would be great to get another striker in, but the guy I was replying to was basically saying we can't get third with those players, which is clearly nonsense.

Mick from Oz

Marco Tilio who I have suggested Hearts have a look at along with Connor Metcalfe, is about to be called up to the senior Aussie team for the first time.

 

Was impressive  at the Olympics and scored a cracker in the League recently.

I just checked our top scorers this season. 
 

In all competitions Boyce has 11 followed by Kingsley and GMS with 4. 
 

I know I’m a broken record but we need more goal scorers.

You make it sounds like those stats are a problem. A feature of Neilson teams has always been goals spread around the team, and playing 3 forwards will make that inevitable. I bet if we look at goals scored for all forwards we might still be 3rd top scorers or better in terms of goals scored by our forwards. 11+4+3+3? 

 

We've still only scored 2 less than Rangers in the league, and are 3rd top scorers. Boyce is 3rd= top scorer just two behind Morales in the league. No idea overall. Kingsley is 6th= overall 🤣 It's still only halfway but I agree Kingsley is unlikely to keep scoring but hopefully Woodburn, Ginnelly and co will. We do need another striker I agree, but our stats are fine. We just need more options.

At least one of your goals stats are slightly off but at the end of the day we’re still the third best goal scorers and third best goals against which right now makes us the best of the rest. We really can’t ask for much more in this $#!tty duopoly of a league.

Shows how close we are to them. Just missing more goals and pace in the team.

Probably. Just going by this - https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/scottish-premiership/top-scorers

 

Edit: But must have looked at home goals only. We're well behind the OF but ahead of the rest

We definitely need a striker or two but this whole goals chat doesn't fit with the facts, we're the 3rd top scorers in the league.

I thought he played quite well on Tuesday. That is until he had to play in the middle, and came up against Chris Kane and he lost out in the air and struggled with the physicality.

He has always been a good footballer, but never a dominating CH.

Champions League strikers will make life very difficult for him

Agreed 👍🏽

To be fair, if we'd managed to get our hands on a top (by SPFL standards) striker in the summer, we'd possibly be higher than 3rd, both in terms of scoring and league position!
