    Certainly ticks the boxes for our regular transfer strategy. Big. Check. Worked with Robinson in the past. Check. Out of the game with bad injury. Check. Something to prove. Check.

    I think a number of member countries use the FIFA formula, but you're right - local association rules take precedence. That's why it's much more beneficial for us when a youngster (like Erwin) moves south.

    Under FIFA guidelines, there is Training Compensation and Solidarity Payments. I think it's the Training Compensation this one falls under.

    There is a FIFA formula that many countries use that is based on multiple factors such as category of training facilities, number of years with the club etc. but I don't think Scotland (or England) adhere to that exact one.

    Not just Hastie - I don't think in general that loans between teams in the same division should ever be allowed.

    Exactly. He made an impact in his first few games, and then coaches and players worked him out. How he reacts to that will determine how good a player he becomes. If he can work out how to handle two-man marking and full backs trying to keep him out wide, then he can undoubtedly go on to bigger and better things. If not, then he might struggle. That's why I think he'd have benefited from another season of first team football with us. You can't beat playing against first team defenders in competitive games to gain that kind of experience.
  8. True. But defending seems to be optional for full backs in the modern game. (Now I'm going to pull my tartan rug over my knees and finish my Thermos of tomato soup).
  9. I'm on the fence with that one. A natural left back with SPFL experience is a decent shout. On the other hand, it's Lee Wallace.

    Exactly. The game has expanded to such an extent these days that any player who wants to stay a part of it can find a job in some capacity. Just look at the number of coaches a club like ours employs as part of Project Brave.

    I think it's more about the disappointment of losing a player to one of the bigot brothers. I imagine most fans would be happy to see him succeed if he was moving to almost any other club, but don't want anyone to succeed with that mob. I wouldn't be surprised to see Cadden move on in the summer, but at least from his interviews, he seems to have been quite happy sticking with us. Despite the fact that it feels like has been around forever, it's easy to forget Cadden is only 22.

    Davidson - Pettrigrew - goal!
  13. I've never been a fan of playing wingers or fullbacks on their wrong side. Frear needs to be on the left to be effective. If Cadden was fit, he should have been in right mid and Ariyibi or Frear on the left.
  14. No surprise Hasite is on the bench after Robinson's comments earlier in the week. Wonder if Semple will get any game time today.

    Clear(ish) red. Then Leeds missed the pen, went a goal ahead a few mins later and 10-man Wigan came back to win the game. So I guess you could say he took one for the team. (EDIT: just saw the highlights and wasn't easy to tell if it was deliberate handball or not).

    I'd put Craigan (who managed him every day) and Jim Goodwin - a seasoned professional and respected manager - in the category of people with "knowledge of the game". (But maybe I'm in the category of "people who have no knowledge of people who have knowledge of the game")

    If anyone makes an offer in the summer, they'll need to match our valuation. Given how much we brought in for Kipré, and the fact the Turnbull is signed until 2021, I don't think we'd sell ourselves short with any transfer fee.

    Based on the timing (at least according to Turnbull's interview I read, where he was taking the Mick) it sounded like he bought his new wheels on the back of the Rangers (non) deal. However, I'm sure his agent/manager will make sure he'll not be struggling for petrol money any time soon.

    He'll be struggling to make payments on his new motor if he doesn't sign for someone soon.

    Was good to see Campbell, Turnbull, Hastie, Cadden and Scott making an appearances recently (with Semple on the bench). 6 academy products in the same team is great progress and must be a huge selling point when we are trying to recruit.

    A concept even a 14 year old should grasp.

    The problem with that is, of course, it wouldn't be applied with any more fairness than the current rules. So Ayr Utd would lose the game and the points if someone throw a coin on the pitch, but Rangers would get a stern warning if someone threw a bullet at Neil Lennon.

    The one thing you can be sure of is that if it's not stamped out quickly, the footballing authorities (or worse, the government) are going to bring in draconian punishments like hefty fines or stand closures. And the smaller clubs will be disproportionally affected.
