Absolute nonsense, A lot of complete heads gone moments across the forum today.

Dicker was part of the best midfield pairing outside the Top 2 last season. 

Also would like to remind everyone how pish we were last season when dicker was missing. He is an integral part of our team and is a leader on and off the park.

Would also like to remind you how pish he’s been this season.

His conduct over the last few weeks has been the antithesis of leadership - culminating in his disgraceful performance yesterday

If St Clair canny get anywhere near this side when weve be honking he can to back to Venezia.

Millar had better pull his socks up or he can do one as well.

Hendrie hasn't played much but is a squad player.

We need one or two in the middle and at least one if not two up top.  May need watera back as cover too, plus it'll weaken st midden

Going by what we've done so far, we will bring them back on loan until the end of the season. 

I’m hoping that our scouting network now extends beyond the subs benches of teams a division below us.  The signings of Sow and Jackson would be hilarious if it happened to another team or our international striker looked any more threatening than them.

Sow and Jackson , another 2 players to add to the long list of those so called footballers who we have had at the club and who had little impact ....was a fair lot of them in this last decade or so .....For a team lacking in goals says a lot that both saw little game time

..Sow for a loan player to came to the club very unfit ..and then struggling to attain any kind of match sharpness....strange signing so late in the window and smacked of getting in any striker as other deals had fell through

These two were the most obvious non-impact signings in recent years and provided as much as most of us suspected they would. Very, very little to a team who couldn’t score a goal or in recent times even looked like it. 
The next batch of Winter loanees, free agents or whatever need to be of a much better quality or the same result happens in May.

everything has smacked of desperation since clark left for scotland 

board would have know he was leaving long before we did 

took ages to get manager in on time for pre season or europe

took ages to recruit replacements for players who left from last january to end of season 

sent out our players on loan and bring in lesser players on loan to appease support 

sack manager without having replacement lined up 

you couldnt make the incompetence up

I think we knew/realised he was leaving before the board did. The signs were showing probably from the cup replay if not earlier. We didn’t want to believe it but it was always there. At that point the board should have had the wheels in motion to make sure we weren’t caught out. Instead they buried their heads in the sand. Were questions not asked about planning for this season? Pre contracts? Signings? By the last day the writing was on the wall but three people still seemed to be taken by surprise the days after when Clarke actually left.

Most fans knew he was off by jan Bowie is solely responsible for the mess we are in hopeless and incompent like the rest of the board

Precisely.

Played for Scotland at U17, U19, U20 and U21 and is still only 21 himself. I'm not saying he's definitely the answer-haven't seen enough of him to judge. I'm just surprised he's not been afforded more of an opportunity, especially given the complete lack of creativity and goals. So many other players have had more chances, and singularly failed to impress.

In fairness, something we hear quite a lot is both that we didn't play 'any' friendlies and didn't have any signings lined up in the summer.

However we did play two matches in Spain, both against reasonable opposition in Gaz Matan and Dinamo Bucharest.

While spending that week in Spain, and during those games there were several trialists at the club. (I saw them first hand in the Bucharest match). Although none of them were taken on, we were certainly looking at potential targets in most areas at that stage.

i would sell any of our players if we got a decent offer. none of them are special.
