Player contracts and transfers

Recommended Posts

"Aberdeen are probably close to agreeing a pre-contract with him. Hearts made contact yesterday and I want him to stay," said Wright.

"There are three scenarios at the moment. I want him to remain here until the end of the season and I can't see that being a problem.

"I don't think it's in our interest to let him go now. It's important we stay in the league and it's important that we hold on to our best players.

"We are a well run club, we don't need to sell. The only way that would happen is if everything was 100% what St Johnstone needed."

Cannae Wright trying to get a fee for him now, rather than nothing in a few months. We'd take the money..... always another player to be got along the line. The mistake we made was to to sign Watt, MOH and May. Three players I could tell were gash, and I know nothing about coaching or scouting football  .....Watt / May same thing: busted flush. Strikers who can't score, but can "hold the ball up"....which means they are shite and can't score!!!

Players ?.

Centre back & striker.

Aberdeen have a tight squad. The only players I’d see them offering in any deal would be Ash Taylor (centre-back), Stephen Gleeson (centre-mid) & Bruce Anderson (striker). 

Scott Wright is injured and Curtis Main is only 6 months into a new contract.

Hearts offering Berra makes no sense. They’ve already told him that he can find a new club for free.

Not keen on this "cash and players". Which players? To lose Kennedey would be a serious blow to us and despite some saying we have cover,  his style isn't going to be replaced easily. I doubt Aberdeen are willing to part with serious cash and I don't like the idea of us taking on another couple of fringe dumplings who can't make at Aberdeen.

It doesn't look like we can really afford to lose the goals and assists Matty provides: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/teams/st-johnstone/top-scorers

I think that's incredibly harsh on those three players. Watt looked like a good player to me but faded, unfortunately. I'd have been happy to see him stay as I think he may well have come good for us again. May and MOH have both shown in the past that they're good players. I don't remember seeing many complaints on here when we brought MOH back, and I really don't see who else we would have got instead of May that would have been any better. For me the issue isn't signing those players - it's finding a system that gets the best out of them.

After Rooney and McArt from ICT 

Does that mean the manager doesn’t rate Ralston and doesn’t want him to sign for next season, or Celtic won’t let him go? Or, just more competition at right-back?

Also, does this mean we won’t be signing a centre-back in this window?

Yes. Players are only as good as the system they are played in. A huge amount is down to confidence too.

Think Kennedy would have signed in the summer if he had been given an offer.

Tommy seems to be blaming Steve & saying he hoped Kirsten would do better. Not his exact words but it's the gist from memory.

Be interesting to see of Kennedy is played in cup match against Morton.

That could give an indication if he is going this window or summer.

Personally not fused either way as we have an over abundance of midfielders.

I've got to assume you don't watch Saints every week. There is one player who stands out from the rest of the team week in week out. Matt Kennedy.

It's a real shame that we couldn't get him signed for Saints for the longer term.

Wrong .....I do watch Saints every week.

The point I was making like all other players they are passing through, however long they stay for.  If he is not signing for Saints then if the deal is correct he can go now, if it is not then summer.

Hopefully Kennedy if he stays will perform like Liam Craig did before his move to Hibs.

Dont have much of a problem with Kennedy going to Aberdeen and getting more dosh etc. Can't see us letting him go at this time of the season as I very much doubt Aberdeen would offer us much cash/players to get the deal done.

As for Hearts, we would be mad to let him go there before the end of the season, regardless of what they may offer. Why would we strengthen a relegation rival by allowing them to take our most in-form player and potentially giving us one their worst performing players.

Hearts will probably get themselves out of the hole they are in, but we don't need to be helping them.

Not against us going for Berra. Not as a first team player, but perhaps someone who can fill a spot for injury/suspension and potentially some sort of coaching role so that the likes of Duffy and Tanser learn to defend properly. Ralston comes into that bracket as well, but I don't see him being here long-term.
