I think people were blinded by the multitude of signings and the tag lines of which youth setup they came from etc.
When you dig a little deeper you could see a lot of the players signed were questionable, the board did admit though that they buy in cheap and in bulk hoping to get some diamonds in the rough.
Kilgallon, Mcgowan and Gordon were great acquisitions, if HOWEVER Accies had smarts, they'd have kept Tomas/Van Der Weg as well and we'd actually have OPTIONS for a LB/RB. I think Mcgowan wants to play higher up the field, he's got potential for a winger imo, as does Mcmann *who benefits from no dougie at the side of him*
Midfield is dire, Martin is an obvious replacement for Daz, he has a cracking engine. Midfield feels VERY light. Taiwo and the english contingent are a waste of a jersey. Dougie's just not got the legs for the positions he's being played in, he'd be better as an impact sub in a forward position.
Miller has the potential to be a great player, *but was signed last season* he's on my list of "GET SIGNED TO LONG TERM CONTRACTS" I mean, if we are offering Bingham who has scored 10 goals in 64 games, that my friend is an average of one goal per 6+ games.
