  1. Player Contracts + Transfers

    This shite is getting annoying now
  2. Player Contracts + Transfers

    It encourages other players to up their game, something which our squad will benefit from. If anything, it's a good wee boot up the arse for them to hit the ground running.

    Tam Scobbie hits out at St Johnstone Chairman Steve Brown... http://www.scotsman.com/sport/football/teams/dundee-united/tam-scobbie-hits-out-at-st-johnstone-chairman-steve-brown-1-4480415 Interesting read, but I have to say I do agree with Tam 100%. The chairman's been a bit of an arsehole here, despite the fact Tommy valued Tam and wanted to keep him. Steve Brown should really let Tommy have the say over contracts - before he gets so pissed of and heads to pastures new as a result. All the best Tam.

    No, all I'm saying is that with our budget, in terms of investing in a quality back up to Easty, we should invest up top where we need to, and take the oppertunity to allow the youth a shot. I'll agree with you there that it's odd, but we need a striker who can really make the magic happen up the park. We've seen enough of Chris Kane to know he isn't that, and we don't yet know enough about Hurst at this level. Stevie May was a gamble in itself but at least we had an idea as to what type of player he was previously before his prime (2-0 against Accies comes to mind). It's less of a gamble to take with Defenders as there's still 3 others in a game to back them up and keep them right, whereas a striker is purely down to the individual's ability to score.

    At the end of the day, the chances of recruiting a left back with top flight experience who isn't 30 odd and playing at a substandard level, and willing to sit on the bench for some games, is basically nil. Unless Tommy can put a guarantee on game time, I just can't see how he's going to be able to get in a tried and tested top flight player who's willing to potentially sit on the bench, waiting for one of our most consistent players to "pick up a wee niggle". I'd rather give the youth an opportunity and recruit players up top. It's not like the "20s" are getting any younger.

    Played at a high level recently, Scottish and fills the position Tommy's looking for. Would be a great signing but I fear Tommy is looking for a young fringe player who can step in and fill the voids when needed (basically a Left Back Clive Smith) - Stephen Hendrie would probably displace Easton, or give him stiff competition. Although that could be a good thing, we could've used the wages up top where we need signings most.

    Ya dancer!

    The top question's a hard ane, any chance of a hint?
  9. Player Contracts + Transfers

    Bearing in mind we have had a couple of youth players, 1 first team player and potentially another 2 first team players going out - add in that new boy's wage, we've probably got the budget for another 2 decent signings, better than what we have now, under those conditions - not that I know of Saints' finances but our transfer activity shows that our budget shouldn't be as tight to get a player like Scott Allen in - if so, then it's worrying.

    As long as he's better than Coulson then none of us would care how shite he is.
  11. Player Contracts + Transfers

    Tommy revealed in his interview this morning that Michael Coulson hasn't reported to the squad as planned, and confirmed that he'll leave the club soon. As for Keith, he said that he's on the transfer list, but has hinted he's willing to hang on to him after his comment about building his fitness up a bit. Keith's position at the club will no doubt depend on us getting in an "experienced" defender in to replace him.

    Also, you've got Coulson and Watson potentially leaving on a free if they choose to go. With all our released players wages being freed up, as well as the purse injected in a bit, there's no excuse why we shouldn't be bringing in at least 2 players better than who went out, as well as 1 or 2 younger fringe players.

    Cheers for the memories during time you were with us Tam. Another one from the Class of 14 gone.

    Would just be enough to see us get Scougall and Fyvie given all the pish about their apparent wage demands! Could bribe Randoom from undertaking another sabbatical again?

    Souleymane Coulibaly anyone? Pending we find the money tree
