Stuart Barrie, Livingston fan
The previous few weeks have introduced good outcomes away Ross County and St Johnstone. These are powerful locations to select up something so it’s a extremely constructive marker of the place issues are.
The previous few weeks have additionally seen the switch window and open it will probably shut as rapidly as attainable for me. Firstly, it’s all a nonsense that’s overtaken by the big-spending EPL golf equipment which have far an excessive amount of cash – that’s for an additional day.
For a membership like Livingston, you get the concern round shedding what you will have greater than what is available in so as to add to the squad.
I believe we’ve obtained a terrific squad and apart from getting in a penalty taker (our penalty miss document lately is changing into weird and continues to develop) we’re properly lined once we get the injured gamers again.
Kurtis Guthrie has been missed since he was sidelined with an ankle harm three months in the past, and can add objectives and a special choice to the strikeforce when match.
There’s a powerful likelihood we’ll lose Jack Fitzwater this window. The previous West Brom centre-half was inconsistent at first however has grow to be a mainstay and deserves the prospect to discover a larger membership.
Perhaps we’re somewhat mild on centre-backs however Morgan Boyes has impressed in his brief run within the staff and I’d wish to see him keep there. We’ve additionally obtained Tom Parkes to come back again, one other participant who has had his possibilities at Livi restricted by harm.
In midfield we’ve obtained good choices, if there was somebody to come back straight into the staff then perhaps that’s a spot so as to add creativity however Steven Kelly has shone lately, Andrew Shinnie has been good in that position and Scott Pittman is due again from his first ever suspension (don’t get me began on VAR).
Large Joel Nouble has been good this season and rumours about him going to Hearts don’t appear to go away. We seem to have already signed his substitute with Steven Bradley signing from Hibs. He impressed on his debut and appears promising.
It’s most likely as a result of Davie Martindale has a knack of discovering gems from the decrease leagues, or getting a recreation out of gamers who’ve misplaced their method or love for soccer, that offers me confidence that if we lose gamers, I do know we are going to get no less than the identical high quality of substitute in.
So simply shut the window now and we will all crack on with the necessary stuff…. like moaning about VAR and us being all the time final on Sportscene!
