One out one in is how its going to be

You're talking about relative pennies. Embleton, Robson & Sammut shouldn't count towards the 6. Especially when they're quoted as saying Sammut is for the 23s & the other 2 were available to the manager last year.
i do count sammut towards the six because he is a player for the senior team-as evidenced by the fact that he has already played for the senior team...which is usually a good indicator one is under consideration for the senior team..
i dnt count robson and embleton as new signings..but i do count them as new players..because they wreent available to the manager at the end of last season..and are ow..

so we have made four new signings for the firstteam..i would hope for ayt least two and probably three more..

Bainbridge, Hackett, Patterson, Hunter have all played minutes too. They're not going to be involved at the start of the season either. Can't count Sammut imo, not when they said he was basically for the development squad. If he goes on to do more then good for him, means he's took his chance & worked hard. As it stands he'll be nowhere near.

why not? i was hoping we would bring kids through and give em a chance..patterson is presumably thir choice keeper?

sammut should be good enough at 21 or we are wasting our time ad shouldnt be signing him..

The 23s needed strengthening. They were way out of their depths last year & Sammut is experienced at that level. They gave Bainbridge a new deal. He's 21 (looked shite last year too). They came comfortably bottom of the league & it looked like they were scrapping hard to even get a point, hardly good for their development.

sammut was playing a bit for a senior adult team last year wasnt he? i mean only a few games like..but he isnt a kid...21 year old players shouldnt be considered youths..
 
if he and robson were on loan we werent payinf all treir wages..now we are..and embleton doubtless got a pay rise
Donald was talking about needing 6-8 new signings. No way was he including Robson and Embleton who were already at the club. And if he thinks the work we've done in the transfer window thus far counts as getting 6 in and thinks that's anywhere near enough to get us top then I think he's in for a shock, both in terms of how we end up performing and the reaction of the support to it. Thankfully I think you're reading it wrong and I'm sure we'll bring at least another couple of actually good additions in

i know embelton and robson arent new signings..i have said that repeatedly..
my original point was they are newly available players..people that couldnt be picked at the end of last year..and new wages on the books...

And I've said repeatedly that when Donald mentioned needing 6-8 new players he wasn't including players we had out on loan last season.

His exact quote was "any new signings are coming into a more settled environment and we probably need around 6/8 new players this season & we are sure to make some signings soon". He literally mentions signings twice in the same sentence where he mentions 6/8 players, it's obviously nothing to do with Robson or Embleton and trying to pretend it is is simply twisting the truth. Not sure why you're so desperate to protect Donald on this one, he said 6 new players, there's every chance he'll deliver that in the time left without resorting to saying he's including kids who we didn't consider good enough to make an impact last season

i know that. i wasnt counting them as new signings and neither was SD...dont know what gave you the impression I was...Ive saiud loads of times on this thread IM not..youve decided I am...not very bright now are you..
i was sating they are new players availabel to the manager who were not available at the end of last season..and new in the sense that safc are paying their wages again..unliek at the end of last season..so they count in the wage biudget again-unlike during the time they were on loan...in your head that means i was couting them as new signings..but i wasnt..

Right, if you're going to get rude you cheeky fuck, @Botchie posted "I was referring more to the 100 points and 6 to 8 quality player statements" (Stewart Donald having made the 6 to 8 player statement, a statement blatantly about new signings).

You then replied saying "have we failed to get 100 points yet and has the tranfer window closed yet?
the reality is 6 players have joined the first team squad...embleton,..the two new defenders..rpbson..the keepr from coventry and sammut...so two more gets you to 8 [that's you effectively saying that, of the 6 to 8 Donald mentioned, we're only 2 off getting 8, even though we blatantly aren't] whether they are quality is different...but dont associated quality with cost a lot of money.."

So you responded to a post questioning Donald's 6 to 8 player statement by saying we've already added 6, including Robson and Embleton in it. I'm saying Donald mentioned 6-8 players and blatantly meant 6-8 new players, not including Robson etc and I'm baffled as to why every reply of yours in response to people questioning it suggests you think we've already added 6. Maybe to the squad, including players back from loans etc, if that's what you count as 6 players then good for you but no one gives a fuck about your interpretation, we're talking about the 6-8 that Donald mentioned, which we're nowhere near because he obviously wasn't including returning from loan players.

but you highlighted 6-8 signings as something that hasnt happened-when it has. whether they are quality is another matter and somehting more subjective-but they have signed six new first team players..and the widonw isnt shit..so they did what they promised.
Cant imagine what gave people the impression that you’d said we’d already signed six first team players:rolleyes:

Yep, and he says I'm not very bright, fuck me, he's literally said we've got 6 new signings now he says he's never said they're new signings! Must still be at work as well because he still can't type for shit even though he normally says it's when he's working and having to quickly write his messages. I don't normally mind him tbh, but going around saying people aren't very bright when he's contradicting himself in the space of a few posts is bellend behaviour

Another one that has a complete lack of self awareness, marra. You're better than that so ignore him.

Anyone thinking players out on loan last year, and not good enough at that stage, can come in this year and be the difference we need to win the league are dreaming.
