Like he still plays Anderson and Craig?

Mannus was replaced by Clark, Ando by Kerr, Craig was behind McCann in the pecking order on Saturday. 

This "old guard" myth is bizarre when literally nothing points to it.

Ando is still there & was in the team this season before being replaced by a useless ginge. Craig has been made vice captain so would imagine he is very much in Tommy's plan.

Anyway the subject was the thought that Tommy has spunked a lot of money on players that haven't contributed.

Just to hopefully end the rumour once and for all.

Kilmarnock, who pay higher wages than us, "couldn't get near" Laffertys wage demands this Summer.

Lafferty does not say that in his article. He says they could not agree on anything. Could have meant the style of play, the surface, the frequency or commitment to play him.

Maybe we couldn’t meet his wage demands but do we not pay well with bonuses you never know unless you are in discussions.

I would imagine the deal we offered Stevie May initially would be more than what Kilmarnock would have offered Lafferty.

If that kind of money is still available then I can see it being enough to lure the likes of Cummings or Lafferty. Especially if some decent performance based bonuses are included that incentivise the move for the player and reward the club.

Like most players of this era it will be all about the money. This will be his last contract and he will be looking for at least 2 years.

The fact that he/his agent have said their preferred option is Scotland then that would rule out the lucrative contracts in the likes of China, USA etc

I do not think he good enough to get a contract in China or USA. I believe Swanson to USA was paper talk because he is not up that standard either

It didn't come from the papers, it was stated by his lawyer in court as part of his sentence mitigation plea. 

Don't know the specifics but I guess it could have been something like 'a conviction for violent conduct could prevent Mr Swanson playing professional football in countries such as the United States'.

Me thinks the lawyer was trying to soften the end result!

If Lafferty is looking to stay in Scotland, where would he go? 

I imagine he will be hoping Hearts (if they're gullible enough) will take him back... until AN IBROX club decides he's playing too well for Hearts again and is therefore a danger to themselves. At which point they wave the cheque book.

We've had a LOAN bid for May rejected:oops:

Bonkers. When May eventually signs, no one will give a $hit. 

What a shambles, makes me laugh. Can we afford him, if not move on.  Wait a minute, can we sign him but loan him to Aberdeen so he can get match fit.  Thats surely what happens next, some storyline this saga is.
