    Lee McCulloch and Maurice Ross in the frame for both roles...

    Another BIG change required...

    Dearly me... I certainly get it. I’m only relaying the thoughts of various people at the club who are best placed to make that assessment. I’d be inclined to laud the Youth Cup winning team too. Is it down to how we manage our prospects from development football to first team ready the sole reason that the majority haven’t progressed? Hyping up a ‘bunch of 16 year olds’ fits with the club business plan, hence the McKinstry story surfacing - its certainly not for the lack of trying that they’ve not featured as much. Change is afoot to allow those at the latter stage of under 18 (where Semple fits in) some exposure at the next level.

    You’re not quite getting this are you? The “best crop we’ve ever had” as a collective group has been relayed from those in the club best positioned to remark as such. Project Brave status was achieved prior to those signing. The kids likely to make a regular step up now spaces in the squad become available have been training with the first team and the management team are keen to force the issue.

    It’s widely recognised at the club, promoting 8 at the one time last year is testament to their thinking. superward covers your post succinctly.

    The 6 monthly deals have been a bi-product of Project Brave and widely on offer at most clubs, some offering only amateur terms. Reasoning for that is simply that the clubs didn’t know how creation of Under 18’s & reserve levels would pan out. We’re seeing movement out of our reserve team as it’s felt our current Under 18’s are the among the strongest crop that we’ve ever had & decision been taken to push those onto the next level to feature more regularly.

    Any pictures of the German keeper that’s there?

    Never claimed to be in the know - reliable information isn’t as freely given on the strength of the posts like the administrators’. Aligns with how the club do its’ dealings. Being a little cryptic serves to protect sources and annoy the sycophants on here.

    A bigger “Five figure fee” than we paid... plans for an Alan Burrows statue being unveiled soon.

    Not controversial at all. Interested to find if it’s a temporary or permanent contract.

    None of that scenario likely to happen. No ‘cryptic pish’ as an administrator alluded to when posting days old information either... left sider is in. I’ll form opinion when club releases details on contract type.

    Where are the bois?

    Sounds like some are pissed off they didn’t join in. Not condoning their actions, but, seating was a shambles at that end of the ground & in a poor state of repair.

    From another point of view - Having spoke to others, unanimous in their opinion it’s the worst surface they’ve played on and are used to playing on artificial grass most weeks. Many rating what I’d describe as an overused Braidhurst as playing better.

    Won’t work like that for everyone, granted. Temperament is key.
