  1. Player Contracts + Transfers

    *its That's a mistake I regularly made when I was younger. It makes sense that the apostrophe should be there, but unfortunately it isn't used in this instance. Apart from that, it's a well-written post and I liked the 'Napoleon' reference. You really should post on P&B instead of jealously lurking on the outskirts.

    If I wasn't 'ITK', I'd probably assume that there wasn't a new signing in the pipeline and I'd be a bit concerned about that. In that scenario, I'd love it if someone was in a position to confirm that the wheels were in motion and that there was nothing to worry about. It's nothing to do with 'oneupmanship'. I just think that some people would like to know these things, regardless of how specific or open I'm allowed to be. When the club's social media isn't as informative or transparent as you'd like it to be, you whinge about it. When you receive information that the club has a couple of high-quality signing targets, you whinge about it. If you're wanting the club to reveal full details of their transfer targets and current contract negotiations (or if you're wanting ITK supporters to leak those details and jeopardise the chances of any deal going ahead), I imagine you'll end up being disappointed. Still, you can have a good old whinge about it. In short, you're extremely tedious.

    I wouldn't really compare him to Tade. He's a much better all-round striker: strength and pace, but also plenty of flair and a proven goalscorer at this level. He earned a move away from Kilmarnock after only half a season (an £800,000 transfer to Egypt), which obviously says a lot about the quality of his performances in this league. For what it's worth, he might be one of the two players I've been told about.
  4. Motherwell (H) Premiership - 12 August 2017

    I signed up to RangersMedia a number of years ago, foolishly using my email address in the process. I posted a really mild wind-up attempt. Not long after that, a moderator replied, 'Hi Ollie, how's the singing going?', before threatening to post photos and reveal my current location to all of the Rangers fans. It was a relatively scary experience for someone of my age.

    It's dependant on international clearance. We're waiting for FIFA confirmation before Goodwillie's actually allowed to cross the Cumbernauld borders. It's quite a complicated process nowadays.

    My source tells me that Clyde have demanded a swap deal. They want MacLean, Cummins, Hendry + 200k. I wouldn't take this offer. It sounds unreasonable to me.

    I'd take him for £500,000 at the most. We can't break the bank on this one. Let's just hear what Clyde have to say. They're notoriously tricky operators.

    Not saying that any of them are wrong. But, obviously, I'm in total disagreement with the David Goodwillie paragraph. After his complete failure at Ross County and his unremarkable stint at amateur side Doune Castle, he has made a promising start for Clyde in League Two. Wouldn't be surprised if he is one of Tommy's top targets. However, I won't reveal whether he is #JewelNumber3 or not.

    I agree with two of RandomGuy's paragraphs.

    The other problem is that Mikey's significantly better as a winger. I'm assuming it will be a 4-3-2-1.

    Which category are you in, Scott?
  12. Player Contracts + Transfers

    Could anyone give a brief explanation as to why the books currently need to be balanced? Are we in dire financial straits? To address the questions asked earlier, I've been told the names of a couple of players we are interested in. Both would be a step-up from Miles Storey and five step-ups from Conor Sammon. Will either actually sign for Saints and, if so, when? Truthfully, I don't know. I just don't think that people should get angry and jump to conclusions before the transfer window has closed. If, by the end of the month, it has transpired that we've put Kane out on loan without a contingency plan, then yes, it would be worthy of more than mild annoyance.

    Maybe we've 'lost out to Partick' because we actually have higher-quality targets?

    Maybe people should wait a tiny bit longer before jumping to rash conclusions. If we've reached the end of the transfer window and signed nobody at all (or Conor Sammon), then yes, feel free to have a meltdown.
