Or that we cannot get the paperwork complete until Aberdeen return from Georgia..... could be any number of reason for a delay or the deal not going through at all. Either way, it's clear we need at least one striker, whoever that may be.

On a side note, very strange that we had 2 first team players playing against blairgowrie and yet could not fill the bench. Suggests that either, both are on their way out (assume it is this) or maybe saints were expecting a new signing to be in the squad last night.....

or another way to look at it, maybe more beneficial to give say Callaghan a full 90 minutes yesterday (regardless of the level) than have him sit on a bench for 90 minutes without any hope of getting on against Brechin due to having plenty midfield cover (Craig and McCann) already on the bench ?   

MacMillan I can understand, he's not good enough, be best for all parties to just cut ties with him I think.

May was always a gamble but he is certainly better than what we have.

There better be a bloody good reason, and not one that involves being cheap.

There also better be a bloody good plan B\C. 

Honestly if not **** turning up to watch Kane \ Hendry \ Mcmillan run about a football park

Would be interesting to see what the stumbling blocks were. To come in so late with something significant enough to scupper the deal indicates there was games being played.

Until he signs elsewhere, not ruling out something being done, but must be very very remote now. Hey ho, we move on, but the prospect of have Kane and McMillan as our strike force fills me with fear. Hendry is young, so may come good.

Fans will be rightly hacked off, but if the club felt the deal was going too far (whatever it may be), then I'd rather we walked away than get dragged into a long term deal that costs the club.

Really disappointed by this news. Wonder what the extras were that scuppered the move & was Vine pivotal in influencing a no deal, payback for what happened with his contract? Goodwin apparently at game with Vine.

Oh well it was looking like a good news weekend but sadly feels totally flat now.

Maybe Mikey refused to give him the number 17 :razz:.

Tele saying that the hand is at McDiarmid at moment for talks.

Got a link?

They claimed he was in Perth yesterday, about half an hour after he sent a snapchat of himself in Nottingham.

If the medical was done and everything set for his return last night and then for whatever reason the deal fell through, the club have to get some sort of statement out today. Otherwise you can guarantee the following:

a) Vine/May will get a story in the papers about how it was Saints fault

b) All the rumours will continue to grow legs and that will feed into the backing off the park and at games

If it came down to money, Saints were totally within their rights to backout the deal/cap their offer - no player is bigger than the club. But the key thing is that the club can't stick their head in the sand about this - even if just to take the pressure off Tommy we need some sort of statement asap.

Was on a newsfeed. Can't find it again so it may have been from yesterday.

Putting out a statement would certainly bring it to an end, maybe the club don't want to do that just yet?

Given it's been established our PR is terrible I can only imagine how bad a statement from us could be at the moment, I'm half expecting Tommy to come out and say we're happy to go with the squad we've got and it's now 2 out 1 in..

Couldn't agree more. Deals collapse for all sorts of reasons but the fact the whole saga has been played out in the public eye (the chairman's statement last week and then the story coming out on the press on the Monday) I think means the club have to address it. All of that is even before we considering the standing the player has with the wider support.

I really hope the club face this head on and don't just wait for it to blow over.
