Incomings and outgoings.

Shane Long

Would you really want him? Hasn't been the same player since the Alan Hutton tackle. There's younger and better out there

We didn’t think he’d be too happy with a lot of guys in the squad. Broadfoot, O’Donnell, Power, Erwin, Brophy, Boyd all had huge question marks over them but he got the best out of them.

I said earlier on this thread I’ve got a feeling we might sign a couple of players who could perhaps be classed as underwhelming but will go into be very important to us. 

I agree with what you say about the above players but at that time his hands were kind of tied as to what he could do and probably was hoping to get to his first transfer window with them. As you say every player stepped up their game for us and now after having 2/3 rds of a season with him he is in full control of what happens next and I fully expect him to have his targets already thought of. What a difference from the past few seasons!

You mean you hadn't heard of Mark Waddington?!

 

I expect most of the signings to be right backs 

In all fairness I still haven't heard of mark waddington

Paul's son Peter seemed from his tweets to be watching a lot games, eg Accrington v. Cambridge, Oldham v. Leicester U21s, Bradford City U21s.

Could just be coincidence, of course....

 

Paul Clarke watch who players scouts to Accrington, Oldham, Cambridge, Leicester U21s and Bradford U21s?

Not Paul Clarke - Peter Clarke.

No idea which players he was watching. However, an over-age player in the Leicester U21 team was a well-known German centre-back Clarke had at Chelsea and tried to sign for Reading, who is now a free agent...

Mark Connolly tweeting that he’s just landed back in Scotland, if it’s to sign for someone and he can get back to the form he showed before his injury for us, they have thereselves a cracking player.

Pretty sure his wife is Scottish so probably the reason why

Robert Huth? 

Correct!

He could have been watching Tope Obadeyi, who is also a free agent, I suppose....

I've seen him on three occasions this year in the Park Hotel so you're probably right about that. Seemed to be in with his full family and in laws.

We'd need a higher tunnel or he'd never make it on to the pitch! 

I dread the day we sign a claustrophobic player who can’t bring himself to go down the tunnel!

Carver was at the Hearts match.

He was up playing in the Kris Boyd golf day, not sure if it was the same weekend. He was staying in the Portmann. If he's done any scouting it's maybe been the odd job as a favour but he's not working with the club in any capacity, from what he was saying he's good mates with Steve Clarke and that's the only reason he was up.

Excluding anyone out of contract I make the rest of the squad to be as below.

GK    Jamie MacDonald, Devlin McKay
RB    Stephen O'Donnell
LB    Greg Taylor, Calum Waters
CD    Kirk Broadfoot, Scott Boyd, Daniel Higgins
RM    Rory McKenzie, Dom Thomas
LM    Jordan Jones
CM    Alan Power, Gary Dicker, Iain Wilson, Adam Frizzell
AM    Greg Kiltie
ST    Kris Boyd, Lee Erwin, Eamonn Brophy

Even though O'Donnell and Jones are two of our best players we definitely look short at right back and the left side of midfield. Priority for me though would be bringing in quality at centre half and centre midfield - that's IF we lose Findlay and Mulumbu.

I'm sure there will be comings and goings that change the picture above quite heavily.

That right there is a decent squad. A few additions and/or replacements as necessary and we should be good to go.

Isn't it nice looking forward to a close season to see what we get instead of a total rebuild job?

Development youth player Paterson might play RM or LM  and Mounada play CM 

Kilmarnock need sign new RB and AM
