He also made an appearance for Chelsea today from the bench, either having a look at him in a competitive game or he's just trained really well and they're going with youth this season.

Be interesting to see how it develops, whichever player it might be. Hector being there too, hopefully putting in a good word for us.
It's a math class, the whole deal. Just like every math class, there's a clown in the front, and everybody hates this clown because he raises his hand, he's answering all the questions. What do we do? Move on. Just fucking move on, ready or not. He's deciding we got to move on, he knows his math, I hadn't even figured out about Santa Claus yet.

Saw a picture of him coming on standing next to Abraham. Looked like a midget, similar tiny legs as John Spencer had.

Guessing the Chelsea loanee rumours are just that then.

Preparing to be totally underwhelmed tomorrow as the transfer window shuts. Celtic will get a decent left back in Taylor. Sevco will try to get Kent (not saying they'll succeed). We will likely get sweet FA. Although sweet FA is infinitely preferable to the other name linked with us (Ikechi f@ckin Anya  :hammer:)

He also said that Cosgrove was missing the Rijeka game!

Probably won't be any more additions the more I think about it though, we had a relatively strong bench today, and McKenna, Taylor & Logan are still to come back, so hard to see who would be dropped from that bench as well as the aforementioned trio.

Was really hoping for another attacking Midfielder in all honesty. But if Bryson gets fit, which looks like he is, we saw it in flashes again today, in where he took some nice touches and looked to get the ball forward as quickly as possible, then perhaps we don't require one.

Perhaps if Anderson & Wright got sent out on loan, with May having left already, we may see another addition.

We need a creative attacking mid but in DMs eyes we have hedges mcginn Gallagher Ferguson Wilson and Wright all ‘capable’ of playing there. Don’t see any signings happen unfortunately.

Seems like Hoban is on his way back for rehab. No doubting his ability, just can't help but think that we won't see him play.  No harm letting him back for rehab though. Be great if it worked out.

Given that the injury happened during his time with us, its certainly the right thing to do to help him in any way we can with his rehabilitation.

Still think it is a bit of a long shot that he will recover to an extent that allows him to play football at the top level again, given that he's now done both knees in but there was no doubt when he played that he was a class act so fingers crossed he does.

Can possibly see him getting a "pay as you play" deal for the second half of the season which would probably suit both sides......but I reiterate. I think it's more likely he will sadly prove to be unable to resume a professional career at the top level again.

No doubt in my mind that if he gets back to full fitness and does agree a deal here, he'd instantly be our best CB. I sincerely hope that everything works out for the guy.

Don't doubt Hoban is a good player but has now done the cruciate in both knees, had surgery on his shoulder and ankles in the last few years I just do not think he is worth wasting a squad place on. Even on a pay as you play type deal.

Well he's the type of player we lack.  Central attacking midfielder that can take the ball and move it forward even under pressure. If he wasn't wanting a huge wedge then he's defo worth consideration.

I'd imagine he would (under normal circumstances) be well out of our price range. However either he has had no interest so far, or he's turned down moves he doesn't fancy/don't pay enough. He will have earnt enough at WBA to ensure he never has to work again if he doesn't want to so I suspect the question would be more "Would he?"

Not sure he'd fancy uprooting from The Midlands to a northern outpost to earn a quarter of what he's used to. Anyway right now it's a holding midfielder we need more than anything. Not likely to see Ojo before Xmas and Campbell himself is only just returning from injury.

Scottish Sun ( I know, I know ) reporting that we are looking to add Gary O'Neill or Youseff Mulumbu, to help ease the Midfield Injury situation. Apparently McInnes has already held talks with O'Neill.

Absolutely agree about no to O' Neill and yes to Mulumbu. Have to question why it has taken us so long to act though. Our absolute worst injury problems were a month ago. Seems bizarre to bring someone in now when most of our players are back and only Ojo and Wright will be out for any length of time.

Downside is that it pretty much condemns Campbell to either a stint in the reserves or the odd bench appearance from now on (assuming one of them signs).

We were supposed to be speaking to O'Neill prior to last international break. Seems a bit odd to say the least if we are only acting on this now.

Is Gary ONeil another holding mid? No to Mulumbu. This reeks of panic. We can survive against all bar the old firm with what we have, if we sign a midfielder it must be a creative #10. As so many have said endlessly, including myself, that’s what we seriously need. Anything else is desperation. We have Ferguson and Campbell healthy, plus Bryson, and Vyner and Leigh, get a creative spark or we continue to die a slow death.

Did you nae see the Celtic game? Panic would be an underreaction.
