  1. Well, Scougall may have made a more effective contribution than Swanson did.
  2. & Swanson made a great contribution in today's match by picking up a stupid red card.
  3. Scougall will probably be leaving in the next window unfortunately.
  4. It is true. He was going out on loan in the last window as he wasn't guaranteed regular first team football but it fell through. The signing of Swanson gives him even less chance of getting as regular game.
  5. Heard there's been a fallout with Scougall & that we're trying to put him out on loan (possibly to Motherwell). Hope it isn't true.
  6. Personally I think what Wed night's game showed is that the financial gap between us & teams like Aberdeen, Hibs & Hearts is growing which is making it increasingly difficult for us to compete with them. We have the 10th largest budget in the league & while our budget may be growing it isn't growing fast enough to ensure we can continue to challenge these teams over the course of a season. We can still achieve a surprise result against these teams but we no longer have the strength in depth in our squad to match theirs particularly when we lose key players through injury or suspension or simply loss of form. Our core fan base has stuck at 2500-3000 even after we won the cup & that just isn't enough to bring in the revenue required to keep up with these clubs. Even Dundee have a top 6 budget which so far hasn't produced the required results.
  7. Perhaps they've fallen out as Millar keeps insisting he's fit. With Muzz out I'd like to see him at least getting 60 mins. Craig often backs off & Spoony disappeared on Saturday.
  8. If Muzz is not fit Millar should be in central midfield. TW should bite the bullet & give him a chance.
  9. McCann quoted as saying "Without being disrepectful SJFC are a modest club with a modest squad". No Neil you're not being disrespectful at all you pr*ck!
  10. Er, & we've just given him a contract extension.
  11. Leaving him up front alone competing for high balls is hopeless. They simply give possession straight back to the opposition. Even with Johnstone beside him Hibs were winning tthe ball easily. McGinn was running straight through us. We were extremely fortunate to hold on for a draw. As for Midge,if he's fit he should be on the bench as we don't exactly have many guys who can come on & make a difference.
  12. Aberdeen only got May by offering him a 4 yr deal to make up for the lower wages they're paying him. Even then they'll be payiing him much higher wages than we could offer MOH. I think a full season on loan is the very best we could hope for & even that is probably beyond us if he keeps playing as well as he is now.
  13. Pedro says MOH isn't his type of player & judging by some of the duffers he's signed Pedro is correct!
  14. sorry to see Midge go but how many games is Craig going to start this season? I can't belileve he was given a 2 yr extension.
  15. Apparently he scored 2 goals in 32 appearances in his 1st season at Colchester & also suffered a cruciate ligament injury. Were the 32 appeances during the period he was on crutches?
  16. Craig has been unimpressive so far this season & looks slow & carrrying a bit of weight in comparison with years gone by. Frankly I was surprised when he was given a 2 year extension - bet he bit their hand off when offered it.
  17. He played some part in most of the pre-season matches & looked fit & healthy. The only injury TW mentioned last week was Alston's..If Chris is fit I'm surprised he can't even get a place on the bench. If he's injured then why no mention of it?
  18. Halls Angel basically summed up the matter. I'd just like to add a few points from my perspective. I'm disabled & in a wheelchair & I buy a numbered bay in the last row at the botttom of the hill because tryiing to go up or down the hill in a chair is virtually impossible. Firstly, there's the gradient of the hill & then there's the potholes & loose stones which, if you hit either, tips the whole chair forward. Secondly, when I purchased my bay ticket & season ticket therre was no mention of you having to be there 30 or even 15 mins before kick-off. We usualy come quite early so the 15 min limit shouldn't affect us. However if I am ever held up & my bay was taken I'd have to turn around & go home. Having said that, I do know other parking bay ticket holders who pay for a bay because they are often held up & want to make sure they will have a space when they arrive.
  19. Sums up my thoughts exactly. Couldn't believe we had 6 defenders in the starting XI with Paton sitting on the bench. Gave away 2 soft goals & despite a few good saves Zander needs a break. We hardly had a shot on target.
  20. Muzz. Made a big improvement to our midfield.
  21. There was an article this week saying that a number of Hibs players are out of contract in the summer but the club will not be entering into negotiatings with them until they know which division they're going to be in. Therefore I can't see them offering Swanson a big money deal unless they get promoted.
  22. Why did the club not put out a press release to the local papers & got some free publicity? The restaurant is open 12-2pm from Mon-Fri & is often empty..........badly under-utilised.
  23. Due to his injury record at St Mirren it was reported that Watson was given a thorough medical before we signed him......& he's already been out since pre-season. TW said Coulson could play on either wing & Coulson himself said he could also play through the middle...........yet to see any evidence of this. Paton looks slow. If McKay is away would this money not go towards signing Foster? I definitely agree that another striker should have been signed.
  24. According to TW he was offered a deal that was way above what Saints could afford.
