Didn't see a general purpose opposition thread...

 

Dundee United could be in line for a £1m windfall if Liverpool accept Hull's asking price for Andrew Robertson (£10m.)

A team full of hammer throwers with no pace. I hope we hear of some signings of our own in the next week. Still at least 5/6 signings away from a completed squad.

I was thinkng the same, lots of "solid old pros" there but it can go either way. Either that's the kind of experence they need or they'll be crocked by February. Time will tell.

Daryll Meggat signs for Ayr after a disastrous spell at Dundee. Thought he was relatively dece, personally, could be good for Ayr. (And no, this isn't me saying we should have gone for him.)

Me too, think they'll cruise past us unless we pull out a couple of aces. They still won't challenge for the league though.

I can't be the only one looking at those signings and thinking I wouldn't be at all surprised if that team was relegated?

I'd have been happy with 5 of those signings. The only one I'm not sure about is Hutton as I don't know much about him.

Your hatred of the Skunks is clouding your judgement. Their squad will almost certainly finish in the top four.

To me, Hibs and Falkirk definitely look stronger, and United probably will too. Beyond that it's difficult to tell, I think.
 
I predicted us to finish 8th last season so I'm going to hold off until the first league game before guessing anyone's position :P

A few of those players struggled for playing time last season. There's players in there who are potentially very good signings, but they made some really decent looking signings a year ago as well (Webster, Langfield, Carswell, Watson, Shankland) and it didn't turn out like they hoped. I can certainly understand a measure of scepticism with regards to those signings.

They'll still finish above us and beat us in all four derbies, but I don't see anything in there to be getting particularly excited about at the moment.

So you wouldn't be surprised if we get relegated?

Let's just do that anyway.

Anyway, we didn't have a full squad by this time last year (and as I recall we lost to Dumbarton in the CC with a fairly different lineup of the one that started the month of September) so it's too early to say. We did well by getting some business locked in early, not least the Oliver signing and a few renewals, but now it all rests on who else comes in.

Two weeks and two days to the first fixture...
