    Craig Tanner (the forgotten man)

    I never suggested we sack him. Simply not renew his contract. Would be some employment lawyer to find a case with that action.

    It really isn’t that much different. If he is unable to hit the standards expected to play at our level then he should be released once his contract has expired. It’s the same that would happen in any other industry when an employee is on a fixed term contract. Somebody on a permanent contract, with no expiry date, is a different scenario all together. Those of course don’t exist for players at a football club.

    It’s a tough world out there!

    But if you were an employee on a fixed term contract, would you expect your employer to renew that when it comes to an end if you were unable to hit the standards? This isn’t a charity for injured footballers that we are running here.

    Carson or Gillespie

    Carson is the better of the two, but Gillespie has been excellent since coming in. No issues at all with him being the number 1 once (could be if after his injury) moves on.

    Was having a conversation about father and son footballers. Stumbled across the Wikipedia of Gavin Strachan and see it mentions that he signed for us on loan but never played. I have no recollection of him being with us at all. Seems to have been in 2002.

    Craig Tanner (the forgotten man)

    Sensitive little souls on here if that goes down as a shit thing to post. It’s a business. If he isn’t fit enough to positively contribute to the team by the summer then he should be on his way. It isn’t a charity that we are running. Edit to add that he was in fine form before his injury his injury and thought he was decent.

    The lucky to walk again was clearly an exaggeration. I don’t expect him to be at the club next season.

    Craig Tanner (the forgotten man)

    He will be lucky to walk again, never mind play. I’m sure I read that atleast one of the further operations was due to an infection from the previous one.

    Robinson... How Do We Think He's Doing ?

    His time is well and truly up. We should be bringing the new man in so he can assess the squad before the summer. Robinson has a habit of just doing enough to relieve the pressure. I don’t think he will manage it this time. Defeat on Wednesday and at Dens and he is gone!

    Robinson... How Do We Think He's Doing ?

    Should be phoning Paul Hurst to see if he fancies it. His record down south is superb (ignoring Ipswich, who are a shambles). Might not be interested, but should ask the question.

    The Small-Medium Rebuild 2018'19

    Somebody at the weekend mentioned to me that we are interested in a young player from Carlisle named Aidan Hutchinson. No idea about him.

    If Ross McCormack signs then I’ll eat my shoe!
  14. Yeah, heard that at the match yesterday as well. Leeds were interested and he was heading south.

    That level really is bollocks. Was at Guiseley v Maidstone towards the end of last season. The standard was worse than I expected. Not one of the players on the pitch would get a sniff of a game at Scottish League 1 level.
