    The League Cup 2018'19 Thread

    Hartley and Main were rusty. Donnelly was shoehorned into that left side of the back 3 and wasn’t our worst defender. All three conspired to give away that goal, but Hartley is the main culprit. We’re going to miss Dunne. Cadden was the only one who really showed he’s from a level above the opposition, the rest seemed to bring themselves down to Clyde’s level. Gorrin got pushed around to start with, and looks like he’s going to need time to find his feet in the Scottish game. Johnson looks like he’ll get his fair share of goals, and you can’t argue with Sammon’s return so far. Overall I thought we did well to not panic and stick to what we thought would work, and it did. We simply had more in the tank in the last 15 minutes. It’s terrible to watch, but this is how it’s going to be as long as Robinson is in charge. I can only assume Bigi is gone, damn shame.

    The Small-Medium Rebuild 2018'19

    The players wages are usually factored into the transfer fee (or compensation). So if a player is earning 5-10 times as much at another club, his fee will be higher. There is also the fact that bigger clubs can afford to hold out for larger fees because they are 1) less desperate for money, and 2) the player is less likely to be unsettled. Then there’s the added exposure of playing for a bigger team, so more chance of competition to sign the player. I think we’ll get a decent amount for Cadden, but as per usual, it won’t be as much as we expect. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    He def said that he needed another winger and striker, or someone who could do both. Just like Petravicius.

    Looking at the squad, in a “depth chart” way (not counting some of the youngsters who haven’t really played) , we’re definitely anticipating some outgoings in the midfield area, but everywhere else we look to have just enough coverage and no more. Keeper: Carson, Gillespie, Ferguson Right FB / WB - Tait, Cadden, Donnelly Left FB / WB - ATS, Tait, Frear, Dunne CB - Kipre, hartley, dunne, Donnelly, McGuire CM - mchugh, campbell, cadden, Gorrin, bigi, Turnbull, rose, grimshaw AM / Wingers - Frear, Tanner, Mclean (out on loan) Forward - Main, Bowman, Johnson, Newell, Tanner

    Could be a Kipre, could be a Blyth. We’ll find out in due course. It’s going to be rare that we make a signing that gets everyone excited (bigi and fisher looked like they were going to be good ones this time last year, and Kipre was the second choice of the 2 defenders on trial.) Who was the last “known quantity” that we’ve signed? This guy trained with us in January, and we tried to get him then, so he must have impressed for us to keep up our pursuit. The numbers will sort themselves out, we need a squad to get through the season, and there will no doubt be a couple of outgoings at some point. Robinson also likes a tactical substitution, so it’s good to have options. Hopefully the guys going out on loan use it to force their way into our plans in January. That would be a nice problem to have.

    On the face of it he seems like the type of forward we’re missing, and offers something different to what we have. Whether he can translate his goal scoring from what ever league he played in to ours is a different story. We seem to have had mixed results in that regard.

    Going on tweets from that agency and the club, this was most likely related to a bunch of the academy graduates signing professional contracts the other day.

    They are waiting on sponsorship being confirmed, which isn’t completely in the clubs hands. Showing off the shirts without the sponsor on it is going to reduce the opportunity for exposure for the sponsor.

    International Call Ups

    The Mexican commentary has at least made it interesting. We’ve been pretty poor, with Christie being particularly woeful. I’d expect Cadds to get on early in the second half since everyone is knackered.

    Bumper Year - Financials & Revenues

    The repayments to Les and Boyle are structured and scheduled favourably for us, and there is no pressure to repay them, and you have the whole l double your money deal which suggests Hutchison is hardly desperate for his money back. We’ve just signed a bunch of guys on new deals and we’re working on upgrades to the pitch and stadium that weren’t urgent, which indicates we’re hardly strapped for cash. This is exactly what was said in previous posts, Typical Scottish football “journalism”. Before such things as web forums, did journos just get their stories from fans in pubs?
