    New Year Player Sale

    This topic was going to be started by someone sooner or later, was inevitable when we are riding so high in the league, theres an international break and we get time to reflect. I know we all want to stick our heads in the sand and hope no other club notices our players and manager but we have been shifting a lot of decent players last few years for good money and addons whilst bringing in a new wave of replacements every summer. We then manage to get them playing well, improving them and I believe scouts are watching us more closely. I think a few on here are going to be pretty disappointed when a few are sold in January. Nothing at all to do with anything Old Firm related and I never mentioned them once in my opening post or even hinted at them. As for chat about building the team. Never going to happen. Even a hint we have a sellable asset they will be gone. Players and even the Manager signing new deals only increases their value slightly to allow the club a better bargaining position when the inevitable happens. Its a risky tactic that maybe be worthwhile if the club assesses that their value wont decline short term and they stay in the limelight. At least the club look to sell the player at their true value nowadays rather than the first sign of a wallet opening. I banged the drum previously about how we should be building a team for at least a few seasons but I am now in the firm belief that's not our model and never will be sadly. Just my opinion but one that has played out the last few years at the club

    Wee bit surprised Jamie Semple never got a call for the latest Scotland U19 or U21 squads. I think he deserved it. I suppose we can't have all our cracking young players filling the ranks of the National teams

    New Year Player Sale

    Following on from the manager rumour topic I was wondering who will inevitably be sold on January 1st. A few of the players will have sparked some interest with our league position combined with their performances For me I think James Scott will be the first one sold. after that any permutation from Gallagher, Polworth or Gillespie Outside bets would be Donnelly or Campbell. I don't see Turnbull going anywhere until he is established back in the team. I don't think any club would take the chance on buying anything other than a fit player. This would then allow the likes of Semple, Maguire, Mugabi, Sloth and O'Hara to fill the vacant slots if no one else is brought in during the transfer window.

    Which club will take our Manager ?

    I firmly believe if Robinson leaves it will be down south for a Championship Club. He will not join a Scottish club unless the money is silly. I think the OP article wont be too far wide of the mark for his likely destination if he decides to go.

    Declan for Scotland

    I would see Polworth ahead of him

    2019'20 Game 8: St Mirren (H)

    The subs made me scratch my head. Scott was playing well. Seedorf had almost scored and both get taken off. Cole had probably the worst game I think in his professional career. Kept falling over, couldnt keep the ball more than a second. Hold up was non existent. Why Robinson persisted with him for so long and took two players off who were actually contributing is beyond me. Long took his goal well and is a good finisher. He can hold it up as well. Apart from Cole the team played well. Defence coped well with anything St. Mirren threw at them which wasn't much. Maguire looked assured in the centre of the park and played with composure. Lost a few balls but so did more experienced players. One for the future. Campbell was everywhere once again. Polworth outstanding and unfortunate not score with a sublime shot. I think we will be lucky to hold onto Gallagher and Polworth come 1st January as they are standouts.

    He looks like a confidence player, so I hope that doesnt make him hide for the rest of the game.

    2019-20 Rebuild

  14. Crowd seemed to enjoy beating the accies. Twist and shout had a wee run out
  15. hmmm might be hyper critical after all we scored 3 goals and got 3 points away from home. However a few points for me that need addressed. 1. Shooting - virtually every single player who had a shot on goal from outside the box put it miles over the bar. Any school kid knows to get your head over the ball and not lean back, poor technique. 2. Gillespie - Distribution is absolutely woeful at times 3. Passing - is still painfully slow getting the ball around the park. Almost pedestrian. I know the surface has a lot to do with it in this game but I would like to see us get some more urgency into shorter more fluid passing. 4. Hylton done more in two short runs than Seedorf done the whole time he was on the park. Seedorf needs loaned out and a year in the gym. I have seen primary school players with more strength. I still have no idea what Cole's position is meant to be or what he is supposed to be doing when he gets on the park, can someone enlighten me? Work in progress I know (seem to say this every season) but in my opinion which means not a lot I know we need to work harder if we have any desire to be challenging for top half at the break. Well done on getting the derby win, 3 points and at least better application than whatever that was against Hearts.
