Am I THAT predictable?
I think the management team are doing a grand job this season and only a 'tweak' is required in January.
Say 14 or 15 Euro Pish signings or so?
That would do nicely.

Quite a large piece of Blank Canvas and the Euro Pish Work Permit phone number on speed dial.

Bingham had his contract extended to May 2020 in August. Why, we asked at the time? Seems a very expensive mistake, if POL's rumours become fact. Kelly no loss. And whatever happened to Montlouis signed on a two year deal?

Sad fact is we look like a Championship team, and not a very good one either, with very few of the squad of Premiership quality. Woods, Gordon, McGowan Miller & Martin look to be capable of top flight football, but the rest are either now too old, or just not good enough for it.

Can't imagine any cash splashed in January. BOD put up funds in the close season and how many quality players did that buy us?

It seems a long time ago that there were announcements every half hour of our new signings and the majority of fans were quite looking forward to a good season :|

Quite a few of us looked into the background of these signings and could spot some of these duds a mile away.


Some decent midfielders are urgently needed as we can't rely on the two old men who are past it and should not be in the team.

Hamilton Accies have made Aberdeen midfielder Greg Tansey a January target, according to the Express.

Martin Canning wants to beef up his midfield with a loan move mooted for the out-of-favour Dons man. However he may have to make a permanent move if he is to secure the player.

Tansey has suffered an injury-plagued 18 months at Aberdeen and spent part of last season on loan at Ross County.

The 30-year-old still has 18 months left on his Pittodrie deal but Canning is convinced he’s the man to help stabilise their Premiership survival bid.

Just finished watching a documentary series about Sunderland on Netflix which follows their horrendous season 17 - 18 where having been relegated from the premiership they slide into Division 1. What struck was that come the Janauary window there was no money so they end up ‘strengthening’ with unproven youngsters and injury prone players no one else wants a la Tansey. So Aberdeen get most of thier Ferguson money back and off load someone they dont want :oops:

Relax,when Ferguson gets his £19.3m move to Spurs in January,Accies will be free to blow the sell on clause of £17,000 on some inadequate pile of Danish 7th tier Euro Pish.
Or Greg Pansy.
Who knows,we may even discover another Dolphin Tshambles or Alex Penny!
That would be good!
Also,who else but Accies make it public knowledge who their transfer targets are?
Now that Clubs know we are after Greg Pansy don't be surprised if an ICT,Ross County or Dundee Utd,gazump us.
It happened with Miles Storey although in retrospect that is a bonus.

Judging by that Daily Record article there will be a few in comings with some players leaving.

A few have allegedly been released already, yet no statement from the club..

The £0.9m Cyber Fraud is small change in comparison to the money Accies have wasted on pish (Euro and Non Euro) signings over the years.

From the Accies offical site confirmation that Bloomfield is no longer with us. I like the way its phrased that he has been ‘recalled’ by Norwich rather than we binned him but I suppose if by some miracle we survive, his goal against Livingston might be worth his time at Accies in gold.

Mason Bloomfield has left the club after being recalled from his loan spell by parent club, Norwich City.

The striker returns to Carrow Road after making 7 appearances for Accies; which included his late winner in our 1-0 victory over Livingston on 3rd November.

We would like to thank Mason for his contribution and wish him all the best for the future.

Maybe he was recalled, as they wouldn't be happy at his lack of game time. Probably go back out on loan to a fourth or fifth tier side down south.

Good luck to Bloomfield. Looked to have the build of a fottballer and will no doubt develop the extra skills as he gets more game time, sadly lacking with MC's reluctance to perservere with him as a big front man over Bingham's 'automatic' choice before him.

Still loved the way he took on the Livvy goallie and confidently banged the ball in for the most valuable three points, so far, of the season.

I wonder if Norwich will end their connection with Accies, as a result of Bloomfield not getting much game time?

Furthermore, this could also have a negative effect on the club image of giving young players an opportunity, within the 1st team.

Surely Bloomfield had been at the club long enough to benefit from Martin's qualities of progressing young players, as he has the same ethos, like the BOD.
