The fact that we are after a 10 goal a season striker and we are shopping around in a market that Partick Thistle are also shopping in  is very telling and equally concerning....mmmmh.

Are we?

We're trying to sign Stevie May, probably for a six figure fee, while Partick are signings players who are failing to impress on trial with us.

Aberdeen confirming the signing of Belgian midfielder, Funso Ojo on a three-year deal.

Does that increase their willingness for to move Stevie May on as a matter of urgency?

No idea.funso does have a braw name.ha ha

I wonder if Tommy is sitting by his phone in the hope an agent will come up with a couple of defenders.

Or maybe phone Joe's dad.

Tommy would have to back down from his stance that Joe was the one that would have to start negotiations again.

I haven't heard any rumours about contracts from other clubs for Joe apart from Random mentioning Dundee United.

I liked Shaughnessy and hoped he'd sign a new deal but we have to move on, even if it's cutting off a bit of our own nose. 

I'd usually welcome a player back but, unless it's been kept under wraps, his side have made no attempt to reopen discussions with Saints, so he's clearly looking to move on.

He has also missed pre-season when that happened with Muzz it took a while for him to catch up if I remember correctly?

Think he was struggling to get in the team at the turn of the year. 

The club should have had another defender signed by now (i.e. before the injuries), it's poor.

One of the trialists may be on way to St Mirren due to finances was this to make way for another player or was he asking to much.

I wouldn't be surprised if all other new signings are basically on hold until we know if we're getting May or not.

How long will Tommy wait? There needs to be a cut of date and he should tell us when it has passed. Then move on to his contingency striker if he is still available.

Dundee fans seem confident they've signed May on loan.

Keep forgetting they have the Dave Mackay connection now:

https://www.eveningtelegraph.co.uk/fp/dundee-boss-mcpake-has-list-of-potential-strikers-the-size-of-a-phonebook/

“(First-team coach) Dave Mackay has had a couple of conversations with Derek McInnes and Tony Docherty because they know each other so well, just to find out the situation, as we do with any player we look at. We’ve done a bit of background on him like we have done with about 15 strikers at the minute.”

Hes apparently quoted today saying they've agreed a permanent deal, and loan deal, for the player, and it's now up to the player to decide where hes going to go.

I dont see any way we get him now, as financially we'll be the worst option.

Unless he pulls a couple of rabbits out of the hat soon, could be a long season. I hope he has something up his sleeve if May option slipping away that is going to be meaningful, can't see at this stage where that could come from though

May's done anyway.

Happy to have the memories.

A lot of fans will turn if we miss out on him, especially to Dundee.

If you then add in the huge injury problems that might see us fail to qualify out the group, then a heavy opening day defeat to Celtic, and you have a perfect storm for fans to completely turn.

Oh Calm Down!

I'm not convinced May would be worth his price tag so lets move on.

I think our manager will be prudent enough to have another striker in the frame and there is still plenty time to add to the  squad.
