I would consider bringing in a left back as cover if it doesn't look like Easton will be ready. It's the only position where we don't really have a natural replacement if Tanser gets injured. I know Foster can play there, but it's his wrong side.  Someone along the lines of young Smith we got in from Preston a year or two back.

Wonder if a few younger lads will go out on loan.. Kyle McLean, Ali McCann, Aaron Comrie etc. With the squad we have it looks hard for them to even get on the bench very often, and thats with a few first team players out injured.

Would have said same as you about Nydham, but he got his first start and had an impact on the game on Saturday so who knows. For me, unless he turns out to be absolutely outstanding over the next few weeks, if he's mostly going to be a sub, I'd rather one of our own young lads got the experience of doing that role instead.

Loans are not turning out to well at the moment apart from young Sinclair who is in a team that do not have to defend too much as far as I can see.

May,Kane & Kerr are the only ones that have benefited from loan spells as far as I can see.

I think Mitchell's loan may be only til January so assume Sinclair will come back.

I notice Hurst is in the squad instead of Mitchell at moment so assume Tommy not impressed.

I thought Mitchell was injured. 

Just on the out of contract players....this chat gets earlier every year. I can’t remember the last time an out of contract player moved away from saints to the betterment of his career. Am I missing someone obvious? 

We almost always re-sign the ones we want to keep and let go the ones we don’t. Any exceptions?

Yes, I thought about MOH but I couldn't remember if he was anywhere near the end of a contract when he was sold. I was more talking about players who ended up out of contract when with us.

Swanson, yeah...there’s one we never got.

I reckon you can add Zander  and perhaps Gordon to that list so it's not a bad return really

Know its a bit early for us but would think Tommy is thinking about January transfer window.

Think Nydam will be going back & not sure if Mitchell was just till January.

I am sure Tommy will be trying to loan out McCann & McClean.

We all think it looks like Scougall might be away if he agrees.

The question is will we bring in anyone. Will need cover for Tanser as I can't see Easton coming back.

We still need a holding midfielder ,for cover & the future. Liam is doing a great job & it is a bonus that he is doing a job in there for us but it is a long season , injury & suspension will kick in sometime.

Mitchell was a season long loan.

If Nydam returns to Ipswich and Scougall leaves permanently, do we need another midfielder for the rest of the season? a loan signing maybe? I'd have thought if we couldn't get anyone better than Nydam then we should be looking at extending his stay, he must have learned what Tommy wants from him so it would avoid starting fresh with another loanee.

I'm sure Ipswich have changed their manager since he was loaned to us, so it might come down to his plans for Nydam and what the player wants.

You'd assume Scougall will be gone but I wouldn't bet on it, nobody would pay a fee when he'll be a free agent six months later. Could be looking at a loan, but who knows.

A central midfielder is top of the list, still.

Rumoured interest from Rotherham, Scunthorpe and Shrewsbury for Alston. If true, thoughts?

We have the option to extend his contract by one year. 

 

So the ball is in our court so hopefully a nice amount of cash from the English and re-invest it in contracts for Watt, Shaughnessy, Tanser.. Let Easton go back to Hamilton.......Happy days

Shame for Easton, he was a good player but would be criminal to even think about pulling tanser out.

Apparently it's appearance based, so if he's not reached the trigger point yet, I'm not sure we could just extend it.

If he signs elsewhere before it's triggered then you'd imagine the clause would be good.

Alstons an odd player to judge. We lack goalscoring midfielders like him, but then again, I'm not at all convinced we'll miss him.

Scougall &Hurst going with Nydam loan ended . Two young midfielders out & loan . Mitchell retuned to Burnley ,hopefully & Sinclair back from BSC.

I assume Tommy will bring in others or with us only 10 points free from releagation will he be happy with what we have.

We’re 19 points of the playoff place, what the hell are you on about?

I am referring to Tommy's statement that 38 points was his target to be safe. I think he said once they reach that they would kick on.

Not an exact quote but the gist.
