    If Hastie departs for Ibrox, then the clubs will try to negotiate a figure. If that isn't possible it'll go to an SPFL trinbunal. I'm sure there's some kind of formula in place taking into account such factors as age, first team appearances, wages etc. It would seem that we've done internally this some time ago and arrived at a figure of about £350K which has been fairly well publicised since. In negotiaions we might acccept a lower figure in return for add ons. Expect Sevco's opening bid to be about £50k.

    Just a quick post to let everyone know that the Society will be organising a Bucket collection this coming Saturday at the Dundee game. They were looking for volunteers but I haven't heard any updates.

    2018/2019 Game 34:Hamilton (A) April 20th 3pm Kick off

    Accies were given far too much leeway down both flanks today and that was from 3pm. As you've said switch Tait to right back and bring in a new left back. Maybe give Adam Livingstone some game time as long as he has a decent player in front of him. I'm not fussed about Frear's contract being renewed - he made little impact today. Ariyibi flattered to deceive. Teams have our wingers sussed now.

    2018/2019 Game 34:Hamilton (A) April 20th 3pm Kick off

    A reasonable summing up. A share of the points was the right result today. Accies provided the commitment and work rate and we provided most of the skill on show. Apart from the first 10 minutes or so we controlled the first half but rarely threatened the home keeper. Some nice but ultimately sterile football without much punch up front. Had Aldred's header gone in instead of crashing off the bar then we might have taken all 3 points. We deservedly led at half time. The second half was pretty much a non event with Accies dominating the game. Maybe a mixture of Brain Rice booting Accies up the jacksie, making changes; us thinking the game was won and going into holiday mode. It became increasingly obvious to me that Accies would get a goal but maybe not the quite the way we gift wrapped it for them - a friendly neighbourly touch and I hope they appreciate that goodwill gesture come the end of the season. After they scored it was full panic mode for us as we completely collapsed. Still we held on for the draw. As Ya Beezer wrote above, our defence and defensive midfield looked uncomfortable all afternoon and we looked especially vulnerable down our right flank as Accies noticed from the off. Campbell and Gorrin weren't quite their usual combative selves. Turnbull had some nice touches in the first half but largely disappeared after the break. Our starting wingers did nothing of note and both were rightly hauled off. That said the much vaunted Hastie did nothing to enhance his reputation when he came on either. Scott looks a bit raw yet but in fairness wasn't helped by the service and lack of protection he received. I'm surprised he still had a shirt on his back after 45 minutes with the amount of jersey pulling he suffered. Referee was poor and made 2 game changing errors. Firstly he should have red carded MacKinnon but simply bottled it. Secondly he made a bad call when he yellow carded Campbell for simulation after he was clearly barged off the ball. Accies took full advantage of the wrongly called foul to score. At the end of the game maybe Robbo and his management team benefitted as few, if any, of the out of contract players did anything to impress watching eyes or them.

    After today's game I think its become clear , if it wasn't before, that we're going to need a whole new strikeforce. Sammon will leave at the end of his loan period. Danny Johnson just doesn't fit our current style of play. Main, who was unhappy today at being left out of the squad will be offski and James Scott is not ready for first team football yet - a spell out on loan in the Championship will do him a lot of good.

    It seems that Robbo is now playing hardball with our out of contract players. He's stated publicly that we won't wait forever for them to put pen to paper as we will have to find suitable replacements. Quite right too. From various sources I reckon the six we've offered contracts to are: Gorrin, Tanner, Cadden, Hastie, Aldred and McHugh. Frear may not be included.

    I suspect this saga has a wee bit to run yet.

    Naivety maybe but I would think his agent would try to control what he says in public.

    Perhaps a shift in emphasis at least in part. Other Scots clubs such as St Johnstone and Hamilton Accies have cast envious eyes over our recruitment from English lower leagues and have now turned their attention to this source of talent. Maybe hotter competition then this particular pool of players.

    Yes, basically that. He didn't want to leave Fir Park and hoped to have a new deal signed with us within a fortnight (of the quote).

    Pretty much sums up a lot of previous discussion on here but like yourself didn't know the details. The club's general policy on this is pretty good but there will always be one or two it gets wrong. We were caught out with Hastie but few, if any, predicted his early impact on his return from loan. We all know he's had his head turned hence his apparent U turn on what he said publicly earlier. It wasn't wise to come out and say what he did. He's been made a very good offer, by our standards and its now up to him. He's quite entitled to move on but we can't wait on him forever though.

    Thats my immediate thoughts too.
