I honestly believe, taking into account the financial situation we will go down the more patient, financially secure route of taking big earners off the wage bill - Niko (20k a week) Bruno (20k a week) Pena (20k a week) Herrera (15k per week) Rossiter (10k per week) and Cordoso (10k a week) . I am not certain my figures are bang on but I don’t believe I am far off. With all of those guys taking in those wages it works out at - 4.9 MILLION per year. Are we seeing a return now on in the long term. Definitely not. The people responsible for signing off contracts like this with players like Niko who has been injured for 50% of every season in his 17 year career (Wikipedia) . Shocking. Sorry back to my point - i wouldn’t expect lots of transfer activity. We will have Andy Halliday and Michael OHalloran back who if Murty can bring the best out of them as he has done Holt and Danny Wilson then brilliant. We will also have Wallace back, then Jack and then hopefully Dorrans too which will be like new signings as we have been without the captain and Dorrans all season. We then have players like Jordan Thompson who’s 21 years old and surely will be featuring soon, just like Barjonas, Hardie and then hopefully Serge Atayaki who constantly receives rave reviews. Halliday, MOH, Wallace, Jack, Dorrans, Barjonas, Thompson, Hardie, Atayaki with the arrival of Sean Goss and Jamie Murphy gives us 11 new players for a very minimal financial outlay. We lose the big earners like Niko, Pena etc and we have really tightened up the weekly outgoings. The team, as it is has the potential to definitely secure second spot but we are running on tired legs and we need freshness to be able to rotate more. These extra 11 would give us that. We recouperate wage bill and it gives Mark Allen, Graeme Murty and Jimmy Nicholl longer to prepare for the big window in the summer. I hope the club go down this route. No rash, rushed signings to play to the expectancy of fans. Do what’s best for the bigger picture. Add some stability.

Jmk14 - sensible post - lots of ifs and buts and hope that some of these young players come good - but makes sense where we are financially.
Take cover as the usual naysayers take aim!

Hope some of those wages are way off! Rossiter and cardosa £10k! Don't think it's going to that easy to get some of those boys off the wage bill

Rossiter was 10k a week at Liverpool. England under 19 captain and captained Liverpool’s reserves as well as coming off the bench for the first team. Cordoso capped by Portugal at full senior level so this whacks their weekly wage right up.

Can't disagree with much of that JMK14! U can't beat common sense!

Cordoso doesn't have any full caps.

Thanks mate. I actually forgot to include Miller, as bit part as he may end up being, and I hear Dodoo and Forrester are being recalled too. Again I say, this just adds legs to a tired team who’s objective is simply to finish second. If we can do that with what we already have we will save money and we will be in a better place to add next level quality in the summer.

I am hearing Doherty from Hamilton and Jordon Jones from Kilmarnock be linked. Youseff Mulumbu of Kilmarnock too. Low key signings. Not a lot of financial outlay. Makes sense right now.
