To provide some sort of context Carson's signing was looked upon as a very risky one. This was on the back of two serious injuries, one an ankle, one a knee requiring surgery. In between he had a career if not life threatening illness all about the Covid time & in effect hadn't had a prolonged period of playing or even training for months.
 

That is all correct UAE.

But he had been with us just 4/5 months and when called upon had done really well. It was also obvious Benji would be with us no later than May.

Everything should have pointed at Carson being No.2 for a season and building up his fitness, then taking over as No.1 (which he would be now).

The signing of Eriksson seems to be the pre-cursor for his departure. And to our detriment, given the current mess with two Keepers we have little faith in.

None of it makes sense.

 
As you know Tek, I'm not one for slamming the club for every little thing. But the goalkeeping situation is a fucking abomination and is going to get us relegated. That St Mirren result highlights everything that is wrong with us just now.

ADS, as i've said before, and will say again, season 15/16 taught us all that not having a solid No.1 and instead a clutch of dodgy Keepers is the fragmented building block that will bring everything crashing down.

Even on Saturday, when Eriksson was generally 'better', there were still a couple of moments where i was thinking 'Wtf is he doing there?' in terms of punching cross balls, or just coming miles out of his box etc etc.

He looks like he has a mistake or two in him, in every match. A recipe for disaster.

Re: Summer Transfer Window

I agree with TEK and Arabdownsouth. Our goalkeeper situation is a massive own goal by the club.  Credit is due to Ericson who appears to be improving.

You could go back to 94/95 when Kelham O'Hanlon and Henrik Jorgensen were on goals, and we went down, similar to 2015/16

If the rumours are true about the Aussie fucking off back (I'm praying this is the case) then we absolutely have to get an emergency loan keeper in who's got enough experience and is a solid pro rather than some young kid. We need stability at the back before we can improve going forward. I think Tam knew this and did well with his available tools.

There must be some pretty decent keepers looking for a contract.

Career at United finished now. Just hasn't pushed on since breaking into the team.

Re: Summer Transfer Window

The parallels are strikingly very similar to 2015/16, see Guy Demel.

Hopefully a centre half

Re: Summer Transfer Window

If Ogren has watched Neilson walk away for potentially nothing, and he's now having to shell out more cash to bring in centre half cover, surely he's asking questions?

Bit of info from elsewhere that the other trialist may be Malaury Martin. A 34 year old French player who has played at Hearts previously.

Can't see much in it given his age, but you never know.

Not so keen to waste budget on players in 30s, especially as we have a mixed track record of signing players who spend a lot of time on the treatment table.

Much prefer the approach we had under Levein of trying to sign hungry players, like Gomis or Bauben, and more recently it worked with Fuchs

Re: Summer Transfer Window

Arnaud Djoum signs for 2 years.

Re: Summer Transfer Window

Looking forward to seeing what Djoum can do.
I can't remember him at Hearts but that was probably due to our spell in the seaside league.

Re: Summer Transfer Window

I think he plays a defensive role in midfield so happy that we have finally got someone at the club who can play that role for us.

Very frustrated it took so long to identify the profile of such a player.

I am also a bit lost with the direction of the club off the field at present. We have Pawlett, Birigiti, Mulgrew, Fletcher, Harkes, Djoum and McGrath (on loan) all on a very good wage and none will return any transfer fees that the Owner said he bought the club for.
