Really frustrated that the Ed’s didn’t post my response but here goes again.

I clearly called out we’d signed two very very good players, in my opinion the two I was talking about was Aribo and Helander, although I acknowledge that the later is pure based on the transfer fee.

The other 8 players we’ve signed are quantity signings, purely to increase our squad, all 8 could easily not play and simply sit on the bench.

We were promised quality signings over quantity, 8 v 2 is very unbalanced.

Now you put a below average player from a poor Kilmarnock team into the mix then I’m lost for words at the overall average approach we’ve taken to transfers.

{Ed001's Note - have you ever thought it might not have come through? Whining about things not being posted is more likely to just get your posts deleted out of hand than help your case. Most of the time people complaining have sent it using a mobile and haven't realised their connection dropped off and so the post never came through.}

Fair play Ed, apologies I thought it was personal 🤪

Won’t happen again mate, sorry.

{Ed001's Note - no mate, I make a point of not looking at who has posted until after I have decided what to do with it.}

Unless it’s Supercoop having a meltdown believe all posts make it through.

{Ed001's Note - not all mate. But those that don't are for good reason, such as overly personal attacks on another poster or trying to point score over things that really are not for a banter site. The regular posters do tend to get pretty much all posts through, simply because the content of the posts is decent. We tend to get a lot sent from new posters that has to be deleted though. Sadly the vast majority of people behind a keyboard spend their time trying to be nasty and abusive, which is why we have to pre-edit everything, rather than just allowing it to go straight up unchecked.}

Greg Taylor is better than any lb we have Halliday was shocking on Sunday.

A good insight to how things work. I know most of us on here have followed the site for a while and appreciate what you do for us! Keep up the good work!

{Ed001's Note - thanks mate. We did originally go without editing in the early days, but it meant I was spending my entire time removing stuff that shouldn't have been there. There was people posting up nasty comments about the disasters of Munich, Ibrox and Hillsborough and I am sure you can guess the kind of things that Rangers fans would post. It is sad what people think is ok to use to cause an argument online.}

Thanks Ed001, good to hear fair and balanced editorial review process in place.

Supercoop, no disrespect and only good intentions in passing reference to you.

{Ed001's Note - we try to leave you as free as possible, it is only abuse and swearing, as we know kids read the sites, but really we don't want to get involved with editing if at all possible.}

No problem bankie, we're all bears together on here with different opinions. that's what makes it healthy mate, if you catch my drift. Would just like to reiterate what some have already said in reference to thanking the good work the ed's do, to supply this fantastic site for us all to air our opinions and views. So from me also, i thank all the ed's very much for this terrific facility you guys supply for us! 👏👏
You all do a cracking job, cheers again.

{Ed001's Note - cheers SGL, over 18 years now since we started the first site, with absolutely no idea what to expect.}

Hopefully this post to tell Katic to dry his eyes makes it through hahaha! Honestly mate, lighten up, we have definitely strengthened. It was the squad that needed strengthened more than the starting 11. It was when we needed to go to the bench or got suspensions or injuries that we fell apart last year.

21 Aug 2019 00:32:07
Gonna address sir rock katic's point. It's nonsense what you've posted there mate, 8 poor signing v 2 good ones? Based on what? You realise Steve Davis is one of those don't you? Jones has shown good performances in just last 2 starts, Edmondson hasn't put a foot wrong, ojo has a few goals and assists already and king is a premier league player who only played 30 mins. What an unbelievably negative post. The only questionable signing for me is greg stewart.

Clearly you did not read my response properly so I’m not going to rewrite it, just ask you to re-read it.
Question though- would you rather we brought in a number of players and improve the overall squad, have a strong first 11 and strong options in reserve or, sign a couple of ‘big name players’ (say like a couple of Mexican internationals or a Portuguese international with over 100 caps) that don’t fit the team we are building and cause us to flop?

Have you also considered how difficult it is to bring players of a better ‘quality’ than say Davis, Jack, Kamara, Morelos, Tav etc etc to play in the Scottish league? Celtic have had to spend £7m on a player no one had heard of and £3m in a left back who looks terrible.

We clearly have brought in players that have improved the overall quality of the squad. Come back to me at the end of the season and if you’re not happy with the way things have gone fair enough. Oh and if you don’t want to renew your season ticket there’s 15k waiting to take it.

Couldn't lace barisic boots tango 👍 big mans not had a run of 8 to 10 games yet to get a bit of confidence up and up to full match fitness. Still convinced wed see a different animal if he got a decent run in the tesm.

Barisic has most definitely had enough chances herewego55.Always have said he's talented but i'd cut my losses and try and sell him now. It doesn't look as if he has the heart to play for our club, in the scottish game. Hope we can sign either max lowe or greg taylor, to replace barisic.
