So 4 in 3 out. As we know it’s not quantity but quality and being honest I didn’t expect as many as that. Given we saw 3 out and one of them Ryan who will have been on a good wage for us anyway + a small fee then we haven’t splashed any cash. It looks like a cash neutral transfer window. However so far the signs are promising. We have tightened up at the back and become difficult to score against and our results have improved over the last few games. Is it enough? Too early to say. Arbroath have made a few signings and are showing signs of improvement also. Cove on the other hand appear to have shot themselves in the foot. All Hartley appears to have done so far is piss off his existing squad by bringing in a host of new players. Looking forward, assuming we survive our January loan signings will disappear and we will be left with the same squad of young boys and senior players who saw us firmly stuck to the bottom of the league. It will require major surgery pre season but don’t hold your breath for a ‘whatever it takes’ player budget. It could well be more of the same next season.
