Apparently he's been told he can go either permanently or on loan - I wouldn't be at all surprised to see Saints enquire about getting him on loan. It'd be a fairly low risk way of bringing in a lot of experience.

Take him on loan, nothing ventured.

So we will be scrapping around last minute again, something has to change this is just so unprofessional 

The situation Saints are in we can't afford to have another couple of players on the books if we can't offload at least a couple.

This is what the summer window & the May fiasco has done to the club.

Last accounts showed £2.1m "cash in the bank". The 3rd highest amount any club has in Scotland.

That doesn’t really stand up though. We may have more in the bank than any other club but other clubs are considerably wealthier than us in a plethora of ways - including access to cash and required.

Our £2 million bank balance is necessary for our very existence.

Its not, half that and we'd still be fine. Its purpose is to cover the million pound loss relegation brings for a season or two so we're not like ICT, who had to cull the majority of their squad and bring in absolute jobbers for pennies just to break even and who'd be absolutely ****ed if their manager wasn't able to make gold from shite.

Is it better to use a quarter of that to fight off relegation, or sit on the full amount and see it whittled down within 2 years upon relegation?

At least we didnt wait unti he was already out of contract to start talks with him though...

We will soon find out if he really does enjoy playing at saints or if he will be off at the first offer

With players it is all about the money. He will go to the team that will pay him the biggest salary.

If you'd be at a job 2 years, then got offered 4 times your wage elsewhere, what would you choose?

What was the creditors on the balance sheet?

What was the debtors figure?

People get fixated on the cash at the bank, they could have £2m in the bank on that one day but creditors of £1.5m etc.

If they do have £2m in the bank then part of that will be needed to cover running costs due to lower crowds.

Confirmation there will be no signings unless we get rid of players.

Incredible.

Whats's incredible? We all know our limitations financially and unlike Hearts who are probably going to flush a few million down the pan to get rid of unwanted players we  have to be prudent. Besides you don't seriosly think that TW hasn't been crunching numbers to see what he needs to do? There may well be a couple of new faces on board by the close of the window but in turn players will be moved out even if it is just on loan. We won't be the only club in this boat hoping a change of scenery for some misfit might benifit us in the short term.

Good Luck to Matty if he leaves,deserves it he has always gave 100 percent, football is to short a career.

I've been resigned to losing Matt since Steve Brown informed us that his agent wouldn't enter in to talks until the time was right for them. It's a shame but it is what it is.

Whatever happens he must stay until the summer. 

Actually, I'd let him go early if they were willing to pay. A squad that is carrying a player whom they know to be leaving has a bad effect on morale. A player's form always drops after signing a pre-contract too.

Just made the NI squad so has an incentive to keep playing at his best. Plus I don't think he would let Tommy down not to mention financial incentives on league position.
