St Mirren have spent a whack of money on a data scouting solution and use it for most of their overseas signings 

At least they’re have a strategy 

I presume we haven’t made a similar investment?

I don't think that there's any money. I've heard that Billy Bowie has recalled £800,000 in soft loans to pay for the hotel refurbishment. 

In addition, as part of the restructuring deal with the bank, we have no overdraft facility. 

Great how you can here this in Oz when 2 miles from RP we here nothing , wouldnt surprise me in the least though if it was true.

why in the hell did we let Wilson go out on loan and not sign a player to at least replace him, again this shows us they've no clue, I thought he's away because we have a few incoming, but no

Take a bow, we'll look back in a few years as the point it really fell apart.

If the idiots read this Board get a contract drawn up for Holt to present him at the final game of the season

Don't imagine that Gary Holt would be interested in managing at Championship level............

I wonder if part of the problem was SC making diamonds out of turds. Therefore the club don't think the playing side needs much investment?

The penny may drop when we are playing Arbroath away next season

If the club wasnt a f**king bin fire, Gary Holt would manage us in the Juniors.

If the squad is good enough - and most of them played under SC - the problem must be the manager.

 

Some of our better players are no longer here plus the ones that are still here are getting past there best.

Left trying anything to put a positive spin on KB re-signing.

He is a winner, could he be the man to kick some arses in the dressing room and pull us out of this slump?

Should be the manager, or captain, first and foremost, but I'll accept improvement by any means right now.

:hurrah:

 No

A guy I work with is friends with Ross Wilson - the Sporting Director at Rangers. He seems to have built all his success on this type of data driven scouting from what my mate has said

Is this like the moneyball model? 
 

See how Hagi turns out as he was a fiorentina reject when I watched him.

It’s a better strategy than hiring an ex-player to ‘head of football operation’ whose main role seems to be playing darts and pool with the lads.

 

data driven scouting is the future of the game. Our fans make fun of it and compare it to a video game

Seen him during the summer in a youth tournament and he looked amazing.

Fiorientina was too much too early for him, he should have remained in Romania till he had fully developed or pick a club that is renowned for developing player like Ajax

There’s a balance to be found I think between data driven and visual scouting

The best clubs in recruitment strike that balance pretty well.  
 

We don’t seem to have any idea what we are doing at all

John Barnes on Radio Scotland there mentioning us being in for Aarons before Motherwell signed him and another target going to Wigan instead. That's just not good enough. You don't put all your eggs in one basket. There should have been a contingency plan so that, when our main targets didn't pan out, we had other players to go for. Surely that should be within Fowler's remit?

We apparently attempted with 12 or 13 different targets on deadline day.

The fact that none of them got done is extremely worrying then.

Definitely a concern, no saying how many rejections were players or clubs though. Maybe we should be changing the market we're looking in, maybe January is just a much tougher window.

Rangers signings are s**te as well. They just make a lot of them and chuck money at folk

What it more worrying?

Knowing this or the club looking inactive.

Probably this for me. Why is there a problem getting deals over the line? If it’s that many yesterday how many has it been over the month or longer. It’s now time to figure out quickly how we sell Killie better to individuals so we don’t have a repeat.
