That makes depressing reading.  Wtf are we playing at? 

 

We only had about half a dozen defenders last season, 2 of them have moved on.....Milne and Miller get it fucking sorted.

But equally has anybody actually strengthened their team?

Probably St Mirren and St Johnstone, and maybe Celtic.

Everyone else is weakened just as badly, if not more so, than us.

(It's just that we started from quite a low base with our defence)

Calm the heid, CtS. Look more closely at that list.

 

Only Hearts and St Johnstone have taken in more players than they've released.

 

Hibs, despite gaining £3m from the sale of Fletcher, have lost their most creative midfielder AND their captain, along with six others. In the process, they've gained two Falkirk rejects.

 

Rangers haven't taken in anybody yet either, despite losing half a team.

 

Hamilton?! They've lost EIGHT players whilst gaining a very old and decrepid Marvin Andrews who was probably at his best nine years ago. We're actually in not bad shape considering what's going on around us.

I personally don't give a rats arse about other teams, it worries me we haven't made a signing yet and have yet to address our critical defensive problem. I'm not overly concerned about the rest of the team, in comparison to our defence at least, we really need to get a decent partner for Zander and a right back.

Absolutely spot on, who gives a flying fuck about what Falkirk and Hamilton are doing?  We should be concerned first and foremost with Aberdeen - and there is gaping hole in our defence that needs to be filled quickly.

 

We should also be concerned with what the teams around us are doing, and while I'm not going to pretend I know too much about some of their signings, at least Hearts and Utd have freshened up their squads. I'm casting an envious eye towards Tannadice in particular after their capture of Webster, who I think will make them a vastly stronger team next season.

The point I was getting at CtS was Hibs and Hamilton are two of the few clubs who've actually received a bit of cash from outgoing players this summer, and they've both reduced their squad sizes so far.

 

But the summer transfer window is a LONG LONG way off being closed, so aside from the preliminary Europa League rounds, we've got plenty of time to get players onboard. I'm nae panicking. The only real asset we've lost this summer is Severin because he was comfortable in defense AND midfield, and could rattle in a few timely goals when he could be bothered too. At least he's not gone to another SPL side!

 

Smith was out injured for too long for us to really miss him. And Mair. Well, none of us were too fussed when he moved to St Mirren, were we? So really ... the only player that's left who we're going to miss is Severin. One capable defender in, and we should be sorted.
