    Think the Hooper shout isn’t the worst there, a good finisher, would want to fight for his place and would enjoy coming back and winning trophies, coming towards the end of his career.

    Personally though, I’d have Aitchison as 4th choice.

    Aye mate i think a loan would make a lot of sense, not even sure exactly what type of striker, just looking at it from a numbers perspective and the fact the we (hopefully) will have to balance Europe with the domestic games.

    It's not beyond the realms of possibilty to have 2 out of 3 strikers injured at the same time, also competition is always a good thing, in every area of the pitch.

    This 19 year old we've signed from Southampton is supposedly a main striker for Ireland U19's despite being billed as a winger in some places.

    I think that'll be our 4th choice if needed.

    I'd rather concentrate on a centre mid than a striker, far more important for me. Cluj game summed it up, scoring goals but had absolutely nothing to come on and solidify the midfield to see the game out.

    Between the young Irish boy, Sinclair, Christie, Shved, Forrest I think we would have enough goals to get us through a crisis should 2 first choice strikers get injured.

    What I find concerning just now is, Lenny wants 'quality bodies' in today or tomorrow and there's not so much as a sniff of a rumour other than Taylor who's been rumoured for a while now.

    We'll be lucky to get a single player in the door never mind plural.

    I’ve no doubt we’re doing stuff that the press haven’t got wind of.

    Think the board are incredibly lucky the Hun game comes after the window closes.

    Either way the result goes there's * all they can do to react so the purse strings will be tightly pulled together with no reason to loosen them and if we win everyone will forget what a disaster of a transfer window we've had.

    Still time to fix it, but very quickly running out. Need at least a LB and a RB.

    People have been saying the same for about three seasons in a row and it's turned outthere's * all happening.

    Pretty much every signing this window has been picked up in the press beforehand so I'm not so convinced.

    We're incredibly close to finding out but that's 1 of the 2 days down now!

    We play the manks in their own midden on Sunday 1st, Window shuts midnight September 2nd.

    Oh *, thought the window shut on the 1st!

    No hiding place for the board but very little time I suppose. "We tried."

    I'm trying to be optimistic to be honest, we're a couple of signings away from a complete ish side, but we've probably been saying that for as long as any of us have been alive.

    I dunno, surely we'll at least bring in a RB and a LB.

    Guarantee we'll have a desperate loan lined up if we lose that game

    I've not been positive about the club's transfer dealings but I'll back up the comment about us probably working on things that the press are unaware of.

    Jullien and Bolingoli deals were almost concluded before the Scottish press even caught wind of them. Afolabi, although he's a development signing, came out the blue as well.

    i think the Scottish press are only on the ball with any targets that are from the UK as they have sources. When we sing some one out with the UK they only find out about it, once we are nearly over the line.
