    The Small-Medium Rebuild 2018'19

    He's also a better LB than Graeme Shinnie.

    Spot on that he combined well with Bigi and Cadden during that period? Agreed!
  3. We don't seem to fare well after breaks, winter or international. Having our youngsters on international duty might be an advantage (as long as they are injury-free) as it might mainitain the sharpness we'll need to win this one.

    Not going to happen until after we lose the Europa Nations Runners Up Celebrity Subbuteo Play-off semi-final.

    Everyone already know what one I liked - the Adidas one that was the wrong colour and didn't come with a change version.

    Was thinking the same thing. Greavsie even adopted Accies as his Scottish team to add some Lanarkshire rivalry to The Saints regular mentions of Motherwell.

    Turnbull first shone when Bigi was played alongside him in Oct/Nov (although Cadden's form in Oct/Nov wasn't too shabby either). Tait played well in Oct/Nov too, so not sure how that changes my original point. As good as Turnbull has been, it's ridiculous to suggest that, in a team game, he was single-handedly responsible for turning our season around.

    The turn around in the season has been due to the combination of players (Turnbull, Ariyibi and Hastie), plus guys like Campbell getting back to his best. Turnbull has absolutely been one of the best performers, but it's difficult to argue against Tait and Aldred's contribution this season. I can't remember Tait having a bad game this season.

    2018/19 Game 30: Hibs (A) March 16th 3pm kick off

    Hibs were OK, we were a bit less than OK. Every now and then we play a game where the effort is there, but no real spark. Yesterday was one of those days.

    Remind us of your ideas on how to make them sign?

    2018/19 Game 30: Hibs (A) March 16th 3pm kick off

    My original point was just that if Hibs draw with us or beat us, they will have a cushion that will be difficult for us to overcome in a small number of games.

    2018/19 Game 30: Hibs (A) March 16th 3pm kick off

    I'll be pleasantly surprised if we finish top 6, but definitely agree we should be aiming for that. If we don't win this one, that gives Hibs the edge in the race. The extra cash is always welcome, and if we're going to give the youngsters some more game time, might as well give them a run out against the top teams. Plus, it gives us something to play for over the last few pre-split games and would quite an achievement given where we were in late December.

    And from a risk perspective, the team doesn't have to pay the money up front, so a team like Sevco could stiff us for even a small fee.

    The Small-Medium Rebuild 2018'19

    Adding to the above, there are different rules when player's contracts have expired and the player is moving to a club in the same association, so it's quite possible if Hastie does move to Rangers after his contract is up, we might end up with the bare minimum payment. It seems that calculation is specific to each assocation, so I presume SFA rules apply. Lee Erwin was changing associations and moving to a higher tier club, so the calcuation applied there was more benficial to us.

    There's a FIFA formula, and some associations (like the English FA) have their own formula. The English FA allows for payments for things like sell-on fees and promotions, but I believe the FIFA one is just a single payment. Interestingly, when I was googling for the formula, one example from the English FA is a certain Anthony Straker:
