Realistic; A couple of tough no-nonsense hard working midfield ball winners.
Semi-realistic; Experienced goalscoring penalty box striker on loan for six months.
Fantasy; Griffiths on loan.

Effe
Henderson
Griffiths
Henderson has only played 4 games this season. Predominantly a bench warmer. Can't see him back at Hibs, not yet anyway.

If we got Griffiths great but not keen on giving game time to their players to get them fit. He's contracted for another 3 years to the manky mob.

I think we desperately need a centre half and a ball winning midfielder, if there’s scope in the budget for more I’d like to see a poacher and a left sided winger.

There’s a few who we should look to move on if we can sort out their contracts or find other clubs to take them with Vela being the most obvious, Jackson too. We also don’t need 4 right backs at the club - if Gray is fit, I’d be tempted to send Naismith back. James is on a 3 year deal and I think there’s a player there.

I'm more interested in getting a defensive midfielder, striker and left back but can't see that happening this window well not all 3.

I think we could swap one of our creative midfielders with one of the hearts "defensive" midfielders and it would strengthen both teams.

Defensive midfielder is the absolute priority, we’d be a much better team with some proper balance in midfield.

Why do you say a left back? I think we’re crying out for a centre half more than a left back as McGregor probably can’t play too often, Jackson is shite, Porteous is still very raw, leaving Hanlon as our best defender at present. To me a both full back positions need addressed, but not until the summer.

Agree with those who are saying it will depend a lot on who we can get out. I dont think our budget is particularly different or generous from previous seasons and a large chunk of it was criminally wasted in the Summer on at best mediocre squad fillers.

Bogdan will sign an extended deal..I've got a feeling Rocky will go (tho I hope not).

A defensive midfielder is obviously the priority but I also think we need a reliable goal scorer up front. I'm still not convinced by Doidge at all and Kamberi can be very inconsistent.

I dont see us bringing many in..its vital that we bring in better quality than we have the last few windows tho. No more squad fillers.

Agreed in Defensive midfielder part. It's been our Achilles heel all season.

Stevenson to me needs competition or direct replacement. It's been to long it's only him and I think he's got to comfortable and complacent.

I'm happy with our four centre backs at the moment but needs to be addressed in the summer for sure.

I don’t think Stevenson is complacent at all, and any left back signed has to be viewed as a first choice rather than another back up like Nelom, which I don’t think we’ll find or even be really looking for in this window.

The entire defence needs to be properly looked at in the summer - we’ve allowed it to age and not signed good enough players to replace them.

You're probably right on the direct replacement in this window. Also agree with our defence has aged. Needs a complete overhaul bar Porteous.

Meant to add to my earlier post I’m not going to speculate on any names as to be honest I’m hoping for more Hallberg type diamonds being unearthed.

I dream of a diamond with

DM?
Omenonga Hallberg
Allan or Mallan
This is what I mean about squad imbalance - I think you can add Horgan to Mallan and Allan - we've probably space for one of them in our team, having 3 players is a luxury.

I'd probably have Boyle on the right too. I'm not sure that he's most effective up top, and I'd change our formation to include him if need be.
