Shut the Window?!

Written for Pure Fitbaw by Chris Samson of Sports Marketing Scotland    Can you remember a time without the Transfer Window or Deadline Day off the top of your head? I’m willing to bet it’s a bit of a struggle without the use of Google. Both have become synonymous with modern football, but not across…

Accies Hunt To Add To Awful Fourteen Goal Haul

I’m an avid Accies fan and feel well qualified to tell you it has been an awful season so far. Signings are needed in the January window if the team are to be sure of avoiding relegation from the SPFL Premiership. Hamilton rarely spend any money, tending to feed off the last scraps available at the end of the transfer market, which can make it difficult to identify players that the club might sign. However, for Pure Fitbaw I will outline issues with the current squad and profile a couple of free agents and bargain deals that could help save the season

Motherwell – January Window update

2018 was a strange year for Motherwell fans… There were some great highs, such as reaching the Scottish Cup final, our second major final of the 2017/18 campaign and beating four top flight sides on the way to what was a magnificent day, despite being on the wrong end of a 2-0 scoreline against Celtic…

Hibernian – January can bring back the sunshine on Leith.

Saturdays defeat against city rivals Hearts emphasised all that has been wrong with the Leith club and in order to make the sun shine once more, they need to have a productive January in the transfer market. Previous January windows have seen Hibs sign some diamonds but for every gem, there are two or three…

St Johnstone – 3 players that Saints could target in January.

Written for Purefitbaw by Calum Brown…   I take a look at St Johnstone’s potential exploits in the January transfer window, with the Perth club looking to continue their impressive start to the season. The Saints sit 6th in the top flight thanks to a superb defensive record, and stand-out performances from the likes of…

Big Change Once again at St Mirren

  When Oran Kearney was appointed the manager of St Mirren in September of this year, I’m certain the Saints board of directors left him in no doubt whatsoever the monumental size of the task ahead to keep the Paisley club in the Premiership. Which is just as well, as the Northern Irishman may have…

Hearts F.C Jan 2019 – Less Is More…

When I was asked to produce this piece looking into what my club will look to achieve this upcoming transfer window, I jumped at the chance. Finally, I had an excuse to prize myself away from endless debates over fan conduct and having to explain why Ann Budge never being seen in her Ellesse tracksuit…

5 players that Partick Thistle could sign

Since the summer, Partick Thistle have gone from a club fighting for a return to the Premiership, to a club fighting against the embarrassment of a second relegation in a row. Gary Caldwell replaced club legend Alan Archibald back in October, but the change has not had the impact required. In fact, results have worsened…

Who should Dundee United sign in January and who should they let go?

Dundee United’s season so far has been absolutely all over the place. Laszlo’s United was painful even when we were winning. We never actually played well, we were always just less incompetent than the teams we were playing against, as soon as we came up against an actually decent team, Ross County put five past…
