    I agree. While you came into the game later on when we had started to look dis-interested, you didn't have much to show up front. Not sure if the starting eleven were the guys you'd expect to start in your league campaign, but our keeper didn't have much to do other than a decent save from a free kick.

    I thought the French lad was decent in the first half out wide. When he was up front, I thought that was Wright just seeing how he would do up there, not that he'd be signed as a striker. Second half, looked like he held his wide position too much....whether that was 'cos he was already injured/was told to, not sure. It will all come down to wages, but I would think he is worth a contract. Wright did say he was looking for another two who would improve the first team, not just add to the squad. I reckon he improves the attacking options with the need for an out and out striker being the one remaining piece before the league starts off.

    Always interesting to see other views. I thought he showed a bit of spark and while he didn't throw himself into challenges etc, it was a friendly and there were a few who weren't willing to risk injury. Can't blame the lad. I reckon he'd be a more than useful addition to the team. Particularly when he gets used to his team mates around him. Gordon had a decent game, although he wasn't asked that many questions. Foster was pretty poor, particularly in the second half. I can see a problem with Scougall on the left, he looks to come inside and get involved, leaving a fair bit of space that might hurt us against a better side.

    Yeah. Hopefully the goals will be up on the club twitter as there was a camera there.

    Always difficult to judge players in a friendly. Wotherspoon took his goals well, particularly after skying one earlier. Thought Tanser looked ok going forward, although a little suspect defending. Gilchrist settled after a bit of a nervous start. The trialist looked like he had something, but reckon you'd need to see him from the start to get any real idea. Mannone's mistake for the first was a beaut. and they didn't look anything great. Unless its very early in their pre-season there doesn't seem to be much there. Hopefully, Clark's injury isn't too bad....just as well Mannus signed on again though.

    Haven't heard anything re. Clive Smith. Is he away? I thought he had impressed enough to get a contract. His signature would have allowed Foster to shuffle across as cover for Easton if required.

    Not too concerned yet. Allan is an interesting one, very good at Hibs, but was that not in the first division? Didn't get a real chance at Celtic and must have been pretty poor on loan last season. Motherwell and Dundee both need to improve the quality of their squad just to get close to our level. Reckon they both have someway to go still. Aberdeen will have a fair bit of re-building to do and Hearts have Cathro. Our biggest concern might be the uncertainty with Wright. A few players might hold off on signing for us until they know where he is going, if indeed he goes anywhere at all.

    Thought I read somewhere that Hearts took him on on amateur terms to see if he was worth paying the development fee for. Not sure but the development fee might still apply if he signs a full contract. Here's the link....

    Wee bit surprised by Watson. The injuries really count against him. Wonder if that means there is an interest in giving Smith a contract.

    I can see your point, but it would only take an injury/loss of form from Clark and we would have to rely on a second string keeper.

    Mannus signs a new one year deal. Great news having two top keepers for the new season.
  12. St.Johnstone v Rangers

    Given the defence Ragners put out we didn't ask enough questions of them. Thomson looks like he lacks confidence to have a go at his defender. Terrible defending for their second, Alston had the worst game I've seen from him. A little disappointed more of the team didn't stay out to appalud the support they have had this season.

    Conor McLaren's twitter has him leaving Saints.

    McNulty, whos been mentioned on here is off to Coventry.
  15. May 17th 2017 - Hearts at McD

    Pretty poor game. We played well within ourselves and once we got the goal seemed to be happy to sit back. Mind you that Hearts team seem content to pass, pass, pass with little end product.
