Any truth we're actively scouting John McGinn from Hibs? Hope not - bang average SPL player, not what we need at CM if we're to have a better season next term. Mind you, he'll be cheap. The entire Hibs squads only worth £9M.

Would prefer getting that midlothian nipper harry cochrane looks like he will have a bright future ahead of him only 16 though I think. Looks good for the level he plays at for how young he is.

Actually ain't that the same team? Lol.

{Ed007's Note - Yeah it's like West Ham and Millwall, people outside the area find it hard to tell the difference between all the small clubs in London.}

hahaha, ouch eds you've really hurt my feelings I so sorry don't really watch much of the spl I prefer to watch the southern football league pd.

{Ed007's Note - I don't watch much of the English Pub League myself, Noel. Burnley v Huddersfield and Watford v Bournemouth isn't exactly the pinnacle of the beautiful game.}

fair enough just the local team to support and help out with as and when I am able to. the funding isn't really much.

I'm hearing that Fernandes is injured with a broken foot? Any truth at all?

Utter madness if we do go for him. Roma want far too much for him, (£20M according to some reports) he'll want silly wages (£165k a week's been banded about fcol!? ) and at 33 what value is there in signing him?

He'd only ever be a short term fix at best and we'd have to finish something like 2nd as opposed to our usual 11-15th in the league and win a cup just to cover in prize money what we'd have spent on him - and with the best will in the world Edin Dzeko alone just ain't going to make that happen!

Surely it makes much more sense to sign a younger player who will still have value in 3,4 or 5 years time?

I mentioned Jamal Lewis of Norwich on another post but since they're starting to look destined for promotion a £4.5M player will all of a sudden become a £25M one. Ok, he's not English but he's home grown so boom! Up goes the price. Shame though, as he'll end up playing for a bigger club than Norwich (no disrespect) sooner rather than later.

Your point is valid but I'm still struggling in all honesty.

Didn't we sign a "destined for great things" Scottish left back in the shape of Stephen Hendrie? That worked out really well for us. Not! He's part of my reluctance to sign Scottish players - especially ones being talked up by their club.

For every Andrew Robertson (who we sniffed around but didn't go for) There's a Stephen Kingsley. £25M is a lot to splash to find out we've bought the latter rather than the former.

I'd rather we looked at someone like Jamal Lewis who I think can easily make the step up and at around £4m looks a bargain.

I'm always a bit suss about players from the SPL who shine in a league about equivalent to League One. Besides, a figure of £25M is being banded about. That's Ben Chillwell money and I know who I'd rather we spend that kind of cash on.

"byram, fernandes, hugill, byram and oxford will raise another 30mill"

Sorry mate, I think you're being massively over optimistic there.

Byram is far to injury prone, Hugill isn't even being considered for a contract by Boro so God knows who else is going to come in for him, Fernandes has had like 2 ok games this season and Oxford got his backside handed to him in the 3 full games he's played (conceding 11) so far and got dropped.

We'd be lucky to get anywhere near £15M for that lot and that takes in to account the fact you're trying to sell Byram twice!

Roma want £21.5M for the 33 year old Dzeko, add in his no doubt exorbitant wages and err. No.

Mata on the other hand. Honestly? He walks straight in to our starting XI, displacing Snodgrass in any of the positions he's been deployed in this season.

We'd be mad not to at least have a go at signing Juan Mata - ok his wages'll be steep but hopefully we'll be shipping out quite a few of the deadwood high earners this summer, so that'll offset things a bit.

Sessegnon hasn't really set the PL alight this season and there's no way on Gods green earth we would pay £30 odd million for an 18 year old who's currently conceding 2.5 goals a game when he plays at LB.

Cairney's been found out at this level. 0 goals 1 assist for a player that's been deployed as a CM, AMC, RM and RW this term. We've already got plenty on our books that are capable of playing 27 games and contributing only a single assist from the advanced mid positions.

Mitrovic? Hmmm. If he was like £5M then yeah, why not? I'd prefer Giroud on a free for a season though.

Isn't Darmian out of contract in the summer too? Perfect long term replacement for Zabs.
