    NOT GOOD ENOUGH GANAYE

    Hecky is clearly indicating in his interviews that there is a real strengthening job to be done.

    We can't force people to sign... A lot of clubs haven't got anyone in yet...

    Do you think we'll end up with only one new recruit by the end of the window?

    These things take time, largely because if we're going for a player who is quality, we're generally not the only ones bidding for him. Agents will play around and delay things to get the best price, as will the selling club to generate more interest. There's a reason why most deals happen at the end of the window, because that's when the brinksmanship ends.

    To be fair a lot of clubs aren’t looking for 5/6 first team regulars like we are.

    We all know what this window is like after the last few years.... It's dificult to get deals done especially for the players we are hopefully looking to recruit that clubs dont want to lose mid way through the season.

    Moore coming in has been a good start and I am expecting a few more in I just can't see any point in putting a time scale on it we will sign players throughout the window until it closes on the 31st so we just have to be patient.

    Did you listen to his interview? What's it got to do with GG, deals take time. Get off his back it's becoming tedious, we always need a scapegoat on here and it seems he's the one now PC has handed over the reins

    Exactly this. Too many things beyond our control which can make it difficult to get transfers done quickly. Pleased we've got one in, would've liked another for the weekend, but if not we've got another 2 and half weeks to get deals done.

    There's clearly a hangover from the previous regime. Operation Lower Expectation appears to be still in force. Amongst the supporters who've bought into the Cryne rhetoric I mean.

    No hang over just a realistic outlook on what is a notoriously difficult month to get deals done... Still 2 and half weeks left as well!

    You'll be on moaning mid February that the players brought in are the wrong ones on the wrong deals.

    It sounds like we are after a few overseas players listening to interviews this could be holding up transactions

    I think Hecky implied in his interview that the take over put things on hold for a while and they were playing catch up where transfers/loans were concerned .

    Glad you posted that. Now the club know what to do after reading your post. Before you posted it they didn't realise we needed some more players.

    I'm sure there will be plenty to defend the club regardless of the standard brought in. That's not me saying the players will be crap by the way, but if they are there will be a good reason for it.
