    This is just another example of the poor signings we have made in recent times. How many similar situations have there been when a player signs and next he's out the door??

    Whether that is true or not, and I think it probably is, it is no excuse for hiding and shirking the challenge. The team plays 100% better without Ntcham, whether Brown is in or not.

    I guess we'll never know but i honestly think the guy could have made a worthwhile contribution to our season had he been given more of a chance. He was excellent for Killie last season and was a Premier League regular with WBA for a long time. Why BR agreed to him signing when he doesn't seem to fancy him at all is a mystery.

    He was diabolical when beside Kouassi in the Hearts League Cup semi. So much so that he was hooked at half time, Christie replaced him and the whole team looked rejuvenated.

    I'm not sure I'd say he's failed or was a bad signing, he was probably the best player in the league last season outwith us, and since we didn't get McGinn he made perfect sense at the time, it's just not gone his way especially with Christie and Mcgregor playing so well together when Brown was out, still a good experienced option to have in the squad.

    Think we would be better sending biton out on loan after not playing for so long

    A Championship player now and a hugely average Prem player in his pomp, never good enough.

    Maybe we’ve been alerted to the availability of another big strong defensive midfielder...

    Most likely getting chased because Bitton is back now.

    And, if the rumours are true, he's a dressing room mole to the worst * in the world - FAT BOYD.

    Find the whole situation bizarre. Brown and Ntcham haven’t exactly set the world alight so far this season in that defensive role.

    Mulumbu hasn’t been given a real chance and overall I think he has done well despite the major lack of opportunities. I would keep him and give him more oppurtunities. There is no doubt that McGregor, Christie and Rogic played superb together but all it takes is a couple of injuries to be short again.

    This really * me off, constantly filling up the squad with players that are clearly not fancied. Yes we got Mulumbu on a free but it’s just another player increasing the wage bill but not getting on the pitch.

    So much for quality over quantity.
