    He scores from crosses. We've put in about two good crosses all season and Rooney scored from them both. Tell a lie, Shinnie put in a good one against Hamilton and May should have scored.

    Keep an eye on events in Ingerlund with respect to Ryan Fraser.

    We get a healthy chunk of wedge if young Ryan moves from Bournemouth.

    Iím sure this has come up before & Dincan Fraser has said there isnít a clause.
    Didnít he sign out of contract & we only got ďtrainingĒ compensation?

    Don't know about January but by summer we'll be looking to replace Considine (hopefully), O'Connor, Arnason (I imagine), Stewart, Ball, McLean, Christie, Storie & Maynard at least.

    Even in the poundlands & Charity shops we buy from we should be able to upgrade most of them I'd hope.

    Aye, we could be looking at a major overhaul
    8 of the 9 above are regularly in the squad of 18 and 5 or 6 of them in the starting X1

    A major overhaul may not necessarily be a bad thing, however, given DM's mixed record in the transfer market, it could be a complete disaster.
    Look at how we've regressed this season.
    (The biggest downgrade being the replacements for McGinn & Hayes)

    If O'Connor & McLean refuse to re-sign, then we should look to sell for money in January.

    Hopefully a couple of decent signings are made in January to help for the rest of the season.
    On current form, we'll be lucky to finish in the automatic Euro spots of top 3.

    Not sure if its going to be as much as that.

    No chance Considine is going anywhere he is here to stay,I would say there is a good chance O'Connor will sign a new deal and Arnason might stay on for another season.

    Ball,Storie and Maynard will be off but wont be hard to replace, Stewart has looked ok the last few games but we can do better.

    Christie will be hard to replace and depending on who you talk to McLean wont be.

    So really from that list we will only need to replace two first team players and 3 or 4 bench warmers.

    Most of the players he signed in the summer are bench warmers.
    How many nailed on regulars are there from the summer signings?
    Tansey?
    Maynard?
    GMS?
    Ball?
    Stewart?
    Arnason?

    all either in and out of the team or perennial substitutes.

    Christie and May are in the team every week.

    Arnason,GMS and Stewart are in and out of the team.

    Tansey has been injured but looks pish when he has played so its hard to tell if he would play more often.

    Ball and Maynard would be the only bench warmers from the summer signings.

    You're forgetting the GMS cross for Shays winner away to Ross County and also his cross to May for the wrongly disallowed goal v Killie.

    Niall McGinn would be a good addition. Although I think his head might be turned by the bright lights of Edinburgh and I wouldn't be surprised if he signed for Hibs. I see Crawford isn't getting a game for Hamilton. Would he be worth a punt ?

    May I'll grant you - I forgot about him, such has been his impact.
    Christie I wasn't counting as "new" as he was here last year but ok, fair enough.
    Stewart & GMS rarely if ever play 2 games in a row
    Tansey clearly isn't good enough

    My point is, DM's record of recruitment is patchy and for him to replace 9 players (whether first X1 or subs) will be hit or miss.

    My point was he isn't going to have to replace 9 players.1 player in Redlines list is under contract(Consi),AOC and Aranason will possibly sign new deals, Ball and Maynard hardly get any game time and Storie never makes the bench so why does he need to replace them?

    3 would be more realistic in McLean, Christie and Stewart, hopefully McGinn signs next month so that is Stewart's replacement sorted.

    I think we will only have 2 new players in January with 2 moving on.

    Says so in Cooney's book "Stand by your Reds" - Chapter 18. ".... 20% of the proceeds of any further sale"

    Hope so.
    the mad world of English transfer fees.
    Someone could pay £5m & we get £1m.
