  1. I thought listening to Wright a week or two ago he suggested that it was Alston's idea to leave discussions to the end of the season. I thought that would be down to Alston seeing how much more game time he got....obviously he didn't get much whether due to injury or others being chosen before him. I don't expect to see him in a Saints jersey next year...thought when he signed he was exactly the type of player we should be going for, but he has never looked like nailing down a first team place and realistically is replaceable. Not sure on Joe. If he does sign again you would imagine that will limit Gordon's playing time, unless Kerr is sold. Gordon really needs to be playing if he is going to kick on. Be interesting to see what happens with Swanson through the summer....hopefully with a good pre-season he might get back to what he once was. Easton's interview on Saints TV seem to suggest he is keen to sign on again....that will come down to the terms we have offered, you would imagine they are reduced and perhaps even based on the number of games he plays. Not sure he will go for that, which would be a shame 'cos I still feel a fully fit Easton is a better option than Tanser, despite the improvements he has made.
  2. Best performance from Murray in a long time. Don't particularly like Tanser as a defender, but he did very well all game against Cadden. Motherwell were surprisingly poor with Turnbull coming very deep a lot of the time and they never really threatened that much. Only a couple of points....Wotherspoon works hard, but his decision making isn't the best. We seemed to aim the Clark kicks to MOH to try and head onto Kane....surely they should work that the other way around.
  3. Little surprised it is only a year. He is one of the young 'hopes' and there is the potential there that he runs down his contract like Hastie at Motherwell. We would still get compo...but that would be a smaller figure than if he was under contract as I understand it.
  4. Interesting the club are talking about going with a smaller squad next year. Sounds like we are thinking top six is going to be less of a likelihood in future years and therefore, the prize money will be less and so are cutting our cloth accordingly. That might change if the likes of Kerr goes, but doesn't sound like we will be pushing the boat out to replace the likes of Watt. On Joe, perfectly within his rights to see what other offers come his way .... not convinced he is the standard that he seems to think himself. Reckon he'd be quite lucky to be first choice in a division one english side, but we will see. Once Kerr has served his suspension, it would be Kerr and Gordon for me until the end of the season. Easton needs games to prove his fitness too. I read Tommy saying he needs a full back....you would imagine that is to push Foster and Comrie is on the way out.
  5. I don't think there will be many surprised by this. Definitely has quality, but the goals scored ratio is disappointing. Thought it was quite telling early on when asked about a new contract, he said something like it was down to the club to prove how much they wanted him to stay....in the end the lack of goals means we can't justify the wage he is looking for. Be interesting to see if this opens the door to McMillan again. He hasn't exactly scored bundles with Accies...mind you, not sure he is getting much game time.
  6. I think a fair amount of this is the player trusting his agent and leaving it all with him. They seem to be waiting until the end of the season before announcing what he's up to and since Aberdeen have apparently moved onto others, I assume there is other interest from somewhere. There is no doubt his form has been affected since the turn of the year and this situation seems to be playing a part. If he does have another option lined up that is better than us and Aberdeen, he's very lucky given his form in recent times. While I think he is decent, he's not any better than say Anderson, just younger. I'd be quite happy to see Gordon given his chance to be first choice in the new season.
  7. Not brilliant, but much better than recent times. Hendry took his goal well and played well I thought. Kerr strolled the game as normal, although Joe had his moments. MOH was pretty quiet. Dundee played some nice stuff that got no where and they never looked that dangerous up front, particularly once they took Miller off.
  8. There is a difference between their general fitness and match fitness. MOH had the hamstring injury when he was down under and I wonder if he has ever got over that this season.
  9. I reckon we are where we should be. Injuries to what should be key players haven't helped us. Wright being the obvious one. Easton would have made us more defensively secure. MOH hasn't been fit...probably won't be properly fit until next season. Don't think Swanson is match fit either.
  10. Jesus that was poor, particularly in the second half. Still we are a side that has little confidence at the moment, so hopefully the win will make us feel we have turned the corner and the confidence will return. We were really struggling there in the second half, particularly after Kennedy went off.
  11. Feel Easton deserves to be given the opportunity to prove his fitness and although probably on reduced terms, should get a deal. McCann impressed me when I saw him...but McClean has to be forcing his way in soon, or he'll be another Brown/Caddis type. Joe & Watt should get new contracts, not sure we can get better players than what they offer. Although I accept Watt probably won't deserve to be the highest earner at the club (no idea if he is). Alston is a decent squad player, lack of pace holds him back. Worth a place in the squad. The other three, not for me. Haven't really been impressed with Bell. We have better already on the books than Keown and have been disappointed Comrie hasn't made more of an impression and really put pressure on Foster.
  12. For me, we are a side that basically needs almost every player to be bang at it for us to get a good performance, or result regardless of the opposition. If a couple of players go missing we are done for and that was seemed to happen today. Foster had a 'mare, whether that was down to it being his old club etc not sure but both himself and Wotherspoon were not on the same planet...no understanding between the two at all. I thought Goss played quite a few nice forward passes, but not sure of him defensively and we can't carry players in the centre of midfield hoping to get the ball to them. Kane runs around a lot, but seemed to try and get into a physical battle with the Aberdeen central defenders far too much and they had him all day. I don't really 'trust' him in front of goal. Swanson looks overweight, whether he didn't a proper pre-season, not sure, but he's a shadow of the player he was before. Mind you he can't be getting up to 'match' fitness with the odd cameo here and there. The first goal killed us. Up to then we looked the more likely and quite threatening. After that goal, other than the deflection onto the post, not sure we created much at all.
  13. Read this article the other day that suggests he doesn't work for Utd anymore: https://www.scotsman.com/sport/football/teams/dundee-united/interview-tony-asghar-denies-untoward-dealings-at-dundee-united-1-4874166
  14. Got to take your chances against the likes of Celtic. Tanser has improved....but has a long way to go to improve his defending and awareness. The second didn't really mean much, soon as we cocked up the corner the break was on. Celtic's sending off was just stupid. Why did Collum re-start the game when the stewards were still on the pitch??
  15. How long does McMillan have on his contract with us? Hoping that he scores a few with Accies and comes back. Still think he'd score goals and it isn't a certainty that Watt will sign on for next season.
