Loan signings

IMO if you sign somebody on loan from an SPL club they must be better than you have already got in that position and the last few we have got on loan i personaly do not think they have been.
I think you need seasoned players from the SPL in their mid 20's and not youngsters from their youth teams who have not played first team football, okay you have the exeptions like Callum Booth but over the years our best loan signings have been Graham Bayne and John McGlashan who were coming back from injury but were part of a very good Dundee FC team and more recently Keith Gibson who was a seasoned pro and ex-S-cumtrose captain who had fell out with their Manager.
Nothing against the young lad Smith from Hibs who looks a decent prospect but is he really better than either Sibby or Rennie who can both play wide right?

re: Loan signings

Must be old age but I find myself mainly agreeing with you again!!

Thought the young Arbroath players who came on on sat were just as good as an expensive SPL youngster.

re: Loan signings

Can't believe both Derek Riordan and Michael Stewart are free agents? Nobody wants to take a punt on these guys??? Certainly Riordan in particular is a gamble in many respects, but surely one worth taking?
