A rumour about a month ago we had an American Midfielder, it was on FB he was showing up well in training then a week ago i heard Downdee United had signed a American Midfielder wondering if this was the same guy ?

I heard it was his brother, Austin.

Email Scott Allison, I did this for my grandson and got a reply very quickly. He will ask you to give him some dates when your grandson will be playing so they can send someone along to watch.

But then you hear nothing back and you don't even know if the elusive " Gus" did or did not attend any of his games.

Seems to be a lot of confidence that we're signing Brian Graham. If this was happening, surely it would've happened by now?

McCall send in an interview I read yesterday about formations and systems that we where close to signing a striker who was good in the air, can only imagine that would be graham. Seems to be county are trying to take Shaw from hibs, so likely we’ll get Graham once there sure he’s been replaced first.

 Have to say though this has been a superb window so far, assuming we get graham, Himself,  rudden, Mackinnon and extending coles loan is fantastic business in itself as far as January goes. If we could now get either McCart or Forrest on pre contracts as well as maybe one or 2 of the rangers and Celtic centre and left backs on loan as short term plugs then I would say this has been a superb window. Brownlie and Docherty too if you count them. Super Ian McCall! Only complaint is I would have hoped to have got rid of a few more players but I can understand this isint always easy to do, plus there’s still time yet I suppose.

It’s a complicated issue if the club are trying to sign Brian Graham.  He has a one game ban to serve and if Thistle were to sign him today he could play tomorrow but then miss the game at Arbroath.  If however they waited to Thursday then he will serve his ban with County for their game on Wednesday so he’d be free to play Saturday. This is all assuming of course we are trying to sign him.  I’d guess if he is a target he will sign on Thursday next week.

Ahhh I see, very clever. Would be happy to wait in that case.

It's good to know that the club are doing thorough homework on players they may not be signing . . . :happy2:

Id rather Tony Christie.

The amount of money from that game last night we should be able to add another couple of decent quality players.

Hopefully not. He's a good utility player but his positional sense at right back wasn't great and his delivery was woeful.

A quick look at his playing record for Carlisle suggests he's hardly played since October. Its not clear if thats due to an ankle injury or falling out of favour after Pressley got binned.

I doubt I'm alone in agreeing with you but still believing he'd have been a better option than what we've had this season. His attitude being the polar opposite of one or two of our more skilled newbies.

Quite like the idea of the O'Conner lad on loan. Apart from buying time till we can source a proper right back I thought he looked strong and mature enough to fit in.

Christie would improve the side considerably. We are clearly weak in this position and don't have anybody that can fill in effectively.

I think everyone would prefer a young quick right-back in but if that is not possible then Elliott is a good option.

I'd prefer to try O'Conner than Christie but if we're looking at Mayo in central defence that would mean 2 defenders that have no first team experience (assuming a back 4 and Saunders is backup)

Wardrop at Dundee United has a decent amount of championship experience with Dumbarton, is surplus to requirements at Dundee United and originally from this area.

I thought McCall has said that there had been an enquiry about Mayo but it was finished due to a Rangers defender getting injured (in effect "hold the mayo").

Good point. I was tho' going to add the addition of MacKinnon should be a steadying factor. One of the problems we've faced is that Saunders, O'Ware and even McGinty can have good games but playing as a unit, whether a defensive pairing or part of the back four, they're too often faulty. Hopefully Darian's presence will help in the organisational side of things and that will include the fullbacks.

If not O’Conner at RB then the other side of the ‘arse cheeks’ had Nathan Patterson make his debut at RB in cup on Friday to rave reviews so might be worth a consideration especially if the Mayo deal from them is no longer happening.

Backward step. Enthusiastic player but if we have ambitions of getting back  into  the premier , we should be looking for players with a bit more ability.
