  1. Player Contracts + Transfers

    Cant understand the logic of setting a deadline for Scougall. We're not going to be signing anyone better, so why end your own chances of getting him? Id argue hes worth risking time over considering the strength of squad we have regardless. People said similar about Swanson, especially the second time we wentafter him, but its turned out more than worth our while to be "mucked about". I think people maybe lose sight of the fact we're not a massive draw for players coming from England, and that finishing 4th and making Europe every season counts for little to most when you could earn 2, 3, 4 times as much elsewhere in the same league.
  2. New Kit launched

    Prefer the away one, feel like the home one will look much better in the flesh. Its something different, and the sponsor is better too.

    Also, we're one of only two Scottish clubs to approach Scougall, according to a rather ITK person on another site (not P&B). Its not Hearts or Hibernian, and Motherwell are who are suggested. Apparently had a few offers from League Two sides in England aswell.
  4. Run in for Europe

    That table above is wildly, wildly inaccurate. Its based on "average wage", something they've worked out by guessing wages and then dividing it by players they consider "first team" players.

    Neglect of our own youth system for years is the cause, it wasn't until Alistair Stevenson returned that there seemed to be any actual plan there, the current U17s, of whom a lot have been promoted, are already considered to be ahead of most of the U20s in their development. The age group below is considered even better at that stage too. Sadly I think Hunter just wasnt good enough, it was a huge jump from what was effectively school level to top flight level. I don't actually think three or four youth prospects in your first team squad is even that bad, tbh. Clark, Thomson and Kane will all likely feature regularly next season.

    Cammy Smith? And no surprise there, hes considered an important player for them, so they were always going to be his first choice. I doubt we had too much interest in him. There was a suggestion from a Birmingham fan on Twitter that we'd enquired about Greg Stewart on loan, along with it being heavily suggested we've also enquired about O'Halloran (I don't buy the Moult = MOH+£500k story, deals like that dont exist anymore that I can remember, and are only ever mentioned by people trying to start rumours). Scougalls dad has mentioned in conversations on Twitter that his phones been ringing non-stop for the past month, I'd be amazed if we even had one of the top five offers on the table, money wise.

    Scottish Sun has us as one of a few clubs "tracking" Simon Murray. Apparently us, Kilmarnock and Partick are tracking him, United have offered him a new contract, and Hibernian have just made an offer that "races them to the front of the queue"
  9. St.Johnstone v Rangers

    The players wet down the tunnel as thats the procedure when a pitch invasion occurs. Like it or not its the group of kids who ran on the pitch at the final whistle that ruined it.

    As I say, I've no hard evidence of it as it seems quite hard to find full stats for that age group. All I know is... https://twitter.com/tynie2001/status/846773580767604737 https://twitter.com/tynie2001/status/866000682301747202

    Just popping in to say we've signed a lad called John Robertson from the Tynecastle U16 squad. I believe hes scored 90 goals for them this season, although I've not found any proof of it due to the lack of history at that level. The club has a history of promising youngsters with Callum Paterson and Jamie Walker coming through there. Jason Kerr also came through the club.

    You're right. I'd had a shite day and being dragged through a pedantic argument wasn't what was needed. There was no need to blame others for me wanting to stop posting and I apologise for dragging you into it. Either way, I no longer enjoy posting on the two sites, and feel like I maybe overshadow other posters by the sheer volume of posts I make, so I'll be stopping from now on.
  13. Player Contracts + Transfers

    Any figures I mention are ones that have been reported elsewhere, it's not something I've ever denied. I've no idea why you've decided its worth a massive rant, nor why you think "nobody calls me out on it" considering I'm constantly berated on here and on P&B for passing comment on things. Not to worry though, you and jhq can celebrate removing me from the two sites.

    You realise "afford" has a few definitions don't you? We can't afford to spend £200k on one transfer fee as it'll affect the rest of the budget

    If a clubs speaking to Kane without our permission then theyll be reported as it's an illegal approach, and we'll take them to court over it. I await this become a headline story....
