  1. Is it just me that finds it a bit concerning that we are still having goalkeepers in on trial at this stage? So we not have any actual targets we’ve scouted and lined up? I’m guessing we knew Branescu and Koprevic we’re leaving a while ago so have had plenty time to line up replacement. Are we putting all our hopes in getting Bachmann back and are just trialling possible back ups? Just seems a little concerning it appears we don’t have any clear targets in mind by this stage
  2. Aberdeen Jonny Hayes (Celtic) Celtic Mohamed Elyounoussi (Southampton, loan) Hamilton Academical Callum Smith (Dunfermline Athletic) Charlie Trafford (Inverness Caledonian Thistle) Ross Callachan (St Johnstone) Kilmarnock Aaron McGowan (Hamilton Academical) Livingston Alan Forrest (Ayr United) Motherwell Ricki Lamie (Livingston) Jordan White (Inverness Caledonian Thistle) Nathan McGinley (Forest Green Rovers) Scott Fox (Partick Thistle) Mark O'Hara (Peterborough United, loan made permanent) Jake Hastie (Rangers, loan) Rangers Jermain Defoe (Bournemouth, loan made permanent) Ianis Hagi (Genk, loan made permanent) Calvin Bassey (Leicester City) Jon McLaughlin (Sunderland) Ross County Stephen Kelly (Rangers, loan) Connor Randall (Arda Kardzhali) Alex Iacovitti (Oldham Athletic) Regan Charles-Cook (Gillingham) St Johnstone Shaun Rooney (Inverness Caledonian Thistle) St Mirren Richard Tait (Motherwell) Jak Alnwick (Rangers) Thats a list of all transfers in the league according to the SPFL website. Dundee Utd and Hibs haven’t signed anyone yet. Apart from Motherwell who are doing their business early, as seems to be their way, I wouldn’t say there is any club that has done business for us to be jealous of. There are going to be thousands of extra players available this summer due to the circumstances so there wouldn’t be any point rushing in and spending all our restricted budget on the first available players. That’s said it would be good to get another couple of bodies in the door in the next 7-10 days, ideally with 1 being a goalkeeper, to start to get the basis of a squad together.
  3. Bought a season ticket the other day for the first time in many years. Living in the east and having a young family mean the number of home games I can get to a season are limited and usually find myself attending more away games at times. However being in the fortunate position of being able to afford one, it seemed the right thing to do to support the club in these uncertain times even if I only end up getting to half the games the ticket covers
  4. Certainly fits the mould of the type/age of player we are supposedly trying to sign and previous connections with AD certainly makes it a possibility
  5. Big football clubs didn’t do it as they would have had enough resource to cover wages for a short term period. Us and many other teams don’t have that and if we didn’t furlough the majority of staff, we’d be lucky if we would have even had a football club left as we’d be losing hundreds of thousands of pounds if not more. As I said above I’d be very surprised if the staff at the club didn’t have amendments made to their employment contracts to include the furlough situation to protect the players and club. It would have then been up to the player to accept these updated terms which I’m guessing they did as everyone has been furloughed. This would ensure the terms of no contracts have been broken
  6. We won’t have broken players contracts. If like in my case, all players contracts will have been amended to include sections which relate to furlough which the employee will then have had to agree to, to be placed on furlough. If they didn’t agree to this then there would be a situation where redundancy would be an option as the club couldn’t sustain paying 100% wages with no income. I don’t imagine any employee not agreeing to furlough as it guarantee minimum 80% income during this uncertain time, where as if they didn’t they could end up unemployed as their company will likely have folded continuing to pay wages with no income
  7. Disappointed to see SOD go, thought the current climate may have played to our advantages and he’d have taken the security of a new contract. Leads me to think he must have something lined up. If he still wants to stay in the central belt can only think Hibs or D.United would offer him more financially. Big rebuild job needing to happen. Can’t see anything happening signing wise for a while until the new season is confirmed and we know what finances we have available. Even then I can see a few youngsters like Connell, Taylor, Cameron etc having more of a prominent role this season due to a tighter budget
  8. Selected No by accident, didn’t read it properly. Wouldn’t want anything back
  9. 100% would like to see this. I think it would bring a freshness to the league that your not playing everyone as often. Might be a slight drop in revenue with 1 less game and visit from the old firm but would be more than made up for with at least 1 home Ayrshire derby, at least for the 1st season anyway.
  10. Voted Yes, was an easy decision. Also signed back up to TIK in the process as well. Had to cancel it towards the end of last year as money was tight but that all sorted and glad to have signed back up again
  11. As much as I agree Power for Dicker would be the right change, there’s not a hope that AD will drop one of the ‘boys’. I mean Broadfoot has come back into the team at the expense of DDF who hasn't done much wrong shows ADs thought process in team selection
  12. Really harsh on anyone having a go a Kabamba. He’s added a different dimension to our attacking play since he has come in and like any football player will have good games and bad games. The bigger issue is that in the games when it’s not coming off for him, rather than take him off, he’s being asked to play the full game due to our non existent options on the bench. If he’s continually being left out there and his performances continue to drop it’ll affect a players confidence. Same can be said for any player on the team
  13. Nah top 6 is done now. With Hibs and Livi not winning this week, last night was our big change to get back in the mix but we blew it big time. They’ll both pick up enough points between now and then to secure top 6
  14. Only options would have been bringing on a defender, Connell or Taylor we clearly don’t have faith in or Harvey St Clair, says it all really
  15. No doubt we absolutely bottled it and threw it away last night. There was enough experience out there that we should be able to see out the last 2 mins of extra time. Players and manager take the blame for that. However for me it goes deeper than and the last 2 games have highlighted what a disaster the club has been since the summer. Post Alessio we have put Dyer in charge and given him the absolute bare minimum to work with in terms of a squad. We have come out the Jan transfer window worse than we went into it in terms of squad numbers. We said we were going to look at the free transfer market and nearly a month later still nobody else in. The decision to let Wilson and DT to go out on loan is baffling. Relying on the same 14/15 players was ultimately going to catch up with us and it has. The last 2 games has highlighted the lack of options in the squad and ability to be able to change personnel in the way that Aberdeen and Hibs were able to. We should have been making changes from 75 mins onwards last night to disrupt the flow of the game but we clearly had no faith in anyone on the bench to bring on and do that. It’s ultimately cost us the chance of finishing top 6 and the good chance of a cup run and trip to Hampden. The board, Fowler and to a lesser extent Dyer have let the fans down in a huge way this season.
