I don't understand the claim about the budget either, unless we we're either significantly over it last season (possible) or it's been reduced significantly (less likely, although not impossible). 

What I'd say there is there are clearly players earning far too much if little over 20 pros and a handful of kids is swallowing up around £1 million.

Getting shot of McMillan would help but that will still leave us just three strikers. 

If we don't get Stevie May, I really worry about what we'll end up with. It'll be another Morgan or Johnstone but this time we don't already have the players at the club to get by. 

Maybe increased offers for new contracts to Zander and Kerr along with some other contracts have taken care of a lot of the money saved form these wages. They also brought in Michael as an extra from last season so that needs to be added in to new against the budget for this season.

Also if Swanson is on £1500 a week by the time you add on Employers NI Superann etc then you are talking about over £100k a season for Swanson alone. So well in excess of £1m say closer to £2m for 20 senior players.

But you need to also add in the contracts we offered to people that they rejected - if they had signed would he claim we are over budget? Isn't that financial mismanagement?

I didn’t realise they both played for the same team.

No wonder Albion Rovers lost all these goals playing against Hamilton and Dunfermline.:laugh:

Jason Cummings told he's free to leave Nottingham Forest, despite his contract running out next summer.

Do we need him?

No we need a striker but not him.

Did he score many goals on his last spell in Scotland.

Not so much do we need him, more would we want him

How can Tommy go from stating his number one priority this window is a striker, to now saying we need to shift players in order to bring in new ones. So what, we spent the budget on Duffy and Parish? The PR around this is pathetic and it makes Tommy and Brown look stupid.

Every single window this tired old line comes out, the clubs failure to present itself in the media appropriately is so poor and it's beginning to look like it's not a lack of resource, but just a lack of care and experience. The club needs freshening up and not just on the pitch.

 

Can't disagree with any of your comments, this bi-annual rhetoric that eminates from McD is Oh so predictable and quite frankly becoming tedious and boring. Brown has already stated he has no intention of passing the club to any family member so in my opinion a new fresh stimulus is required(not taking anything away from what the Brown family have done for this club, but every business has a cycle and it may be; not saying it is but could it be this cycle is now heading towards a downward trajectory). With a requirement for new and fresh investment, positive attitude, improved communication to move forward

We bloody need something at the moment.

Season ticket holders deserting, early season apathy, beaten by Montose, nae clean sheets, players oot...Alston, Watt, Comrie, Bell, Keown, Easton...players on loan to Airdrie etc...and our President for life tells us peasants there is no money....no budget. 

I for one (a season ticket holder since Muirton) an pretty pissed off and a angry about the direction or lack of it at the moment and the contempt for the paltry fan's we have left.

You'll be able to put the support into half of the Ormond Stand at this rate 

Excitement from St Johnstone fans about the season ahead?....ain't feeling it.

Brown....it's over to you....

Where are season ticket holders deserting there has been one bloomin game.

And if figures I have seen are correct sales are up 25%

Itk guy on P&B just confirmed sales are up 15%.

No idea why hes also complaining that Euan O'Reilly is on loan to Airdrie, or why hes complaining that the likes of Comrie, Keown and Bell have left.

Bizarre stuff.

Can't see it. I know a couple of guys that didn't renew & I am sure they are not the only ones given the shambles of this preseason.

Might be all the new houses in Perth have brought in the extra 500 supporters.

Dundee apparently due to announce May this afternoon, hes returning this morning with the Aberdeen squad then heading straight to Dens to finalise it.

I'll have an A.P..B. put out on his movements.

I asked the girls in the ticket office. They reckoned lower than last year but to be fair I don't think they really know. 

If we really are up between 15-25%, I do wonder why. Other than the good run pre-Christmas last season was fairly meh, no marquee (or anything close) signings over the summer, no marketing campaigns. It would be odd.

Edit - it's probably the new dugouts that's bringing them in.

Based on the reporter from the evening telegraphs tweet perhaps?

According to McInnes the squad are due to train today at aberdeen having come home last night.

By a guy that says that he is still wearing his Aberdeen tracksuit in the apex. :shock:

Aye, think Aberdeens flight was due back this morning though, so only logic there would be hes heading straight to Dundee from the flight.

Dundee fans speculating itll be a "tea time" announcement hes signed, so guess itll be a wait and see one.

Remember what you made that comment about Random? 

I remember those times, when I was full of hope.

Cant wait for us to announce our new striker in a couple of weeks. Geoff Cunningham, recently released by Harchester Town, 3 goals in 4 years but has suffered with injuries so his record is actually 3 goals in 6 games. Offers us something different.

At this rate I’d be delighted to get a striker of Geoff’s stats

May spotted in a Dundee hotel...

Would he not just stay in his house 15 mins up the road?

Or did you meant to type, “May spotted in Dundee shithole...”

The shithole being Dens. I can’t even imagine him in a Dundee strip. Our 2014 hero wearing dark blue. Gives me the ****in’ boak!!

McInnes suggested that they were home last night and we're training this morning.
