At least 8 in. We need depth in the squad too, bench far too weak. 

As I've posted elsewhere, bringing in a lot of players might take a while to bed in. I'd assumed we'd get the 4 or 5 most of who would be familiar to JM and his style of play. Just hope we don't do a 'United' and throw cash around in a hit and hope approach.

Martin Woods in talks to extend his stay. 

Happy enough with that, considering he wasn't really match fit when he joined I think he's done alright.

I have a feeling that Keyes will put his hand in his pocket and use his own cash to pay off players.

I think regardless of what league we are in next year, there has to be a major rethink of how this club runs from top to bottom. Some real hard truth's need to come out and maybe heads need to roll.

While as a fan, I loved watching new players come into the club over the last 5 years, but I also believe that this philosophy has been our biggest downfall.  We really could do with stability on the park for a few years and not this revolving doors policy.

Have been saying this for a while now. We are now what in our 4th season in the premier league and squad repeatedly over hauled. We Should be at the stage where we have a settlednsquad and add 3/4 each summer who will action strengthen the first team. Far to many clear outs and that needs to change now.

I am with you on that one as well, a bit of dig, maybe not the best footballer, but he certainly gets in about the opposition 😎

Why can’t we progress a couple of the youths that achieved a great second place in the league last year ?

we seem to drag our heels on this side. I personally never attended these games but surely we could do better with these guys who would show more effort and dedication that what was on show yesterday. We witnessed players who are just playing for a wage and not the team. Very inept performance from all players who have forgot the basics of how to close down the opposition. JM needs a small miracle to get a fit and “ up for the fight” squad by last week in January.

Why was there a youth left on the bench only for a player without even 24hrs of his stay at Dens left, put on the park yesterday? 

Is there still a certain youth requirement in match day squads?

Liam Craig played game number 362 for St Johnstone at Dens to make him second on the all-time list of appearances for the club, second only to Steven Anderson (who is still at the club). Craig said this week he hopes to be at McDiarmid for years to come. You also have guys like Zander Clark, Richard Foster, Joe Shaughnessy, David Wotherspoon, Chris Kane and Jason Kerr who've been there for many years. It's creates great stability and allows them to go on some fantastic runs.

Meanwhile at Dens, we're bringing in guys who've played little or no league football in the UK, sometimes they don't even speak the language and more often than not we end up paying them to leave because they can't perform at the level needed.

And here we are going into 2019 requiring a massive clearout as we try and rescue our season. It's deja vu. You say it needs to change but it just doesn't seem to be in our nature to follow the sensible St Johnstone model. DFC seems to be all about random and risky punts. Instead of making wise investments we prefer to use our money to play the lottery.

Why bring in someone steady and reliable like Liam Craig when we use that money to fly in the likes of Yordi and the Moose?

Tommy Wright has been at St Johnstone for over 7 years now as Asst Manager then Manager.  In that time we are now on our 5th Manager and have gone through how many players? I dread to think.  Stability in football starts from the top.  Who is likely to get his jotters 1st - TW or JM.  A good number of Dees would punt JM now if they could.
