    If we signed 2 new CH's that would be fine wi me.
    If we signed Alves & played Wilson alongside him I'd be happy to see how things turned out.

    Unless Wilson can have a miracle turnaround in form and performance levels then a new Centre back is required to partner alves....Id be going for a liam lindsay at partick, Young, strong quick and knows the scottish game.

    I'm just thinking along the lines of how much have we to spend & where do we need to spend it.
    I'm assuming it's not gonna be an earth shattering amount so if they did sign Alves, I'd next like to see them target a good RB, a strong & solid midfielder & a striker that can give us a good return on goals.
    But I've always thought a team should be built from the back, sort the defence & move on from there.
    If the funds are available & 2 new CH's are signed I won't be gutted.

    I tend to agree with that. Bring in Alves & another CB if there is a good standard available, Replace Tav at RB, Ryan Jack is being talked about signing who is a young physical midfielder, Would love to see Rossiter fit but not sure whats going on there. Then bring in a 20-25+ goal striker in and thats a good starting point

    Add a couple of decent wingers and a playmaker in the middle and we might get a little closer this season.

    Not sure about this , wrong side of 30, no experience of the Scottish game and always looked a bit erratic to me .It will all depend if he has any pace , we can`t afford to have another slow centre back .We seemed to be getting linked with a number of 30+ guys and we need to make sure we don`t get too many short term fixes.
    For me , we need to sort the spine of the team , 2 dominant centre backs , 2 strong central midfielders (Jack + 1 ), and 2 strikers (1 big and good in the air and the other a natural goalscorer). If we had the cash it would be nice to get cover at Right Back and some creativity in midfield either with a new winger or a genuine attacking midfielder . The problem is I would like to see some genuine quality brought in , which would reduce the quantity we could afford so it all boils down to whether the manager thinks we can get consistent performances from Tav , Holt , Windass , Dodoo, McKay , Waggy & Garner or ,having looked at them, whether they ALL need replaced .Big decisions ahead methinks.
