If Scott Allan comes in, I guess we are selling David Turbull.

Hope if we do sell Turnbull he doesn’t go the way of those like Lee Erwin, Ben Hall or Robbie Leitch, all of which could’ve done with more time playing regular first team football. (I know Leitch never played for the first team however it looked apparent he would’ve been one of the next ones to be given the opportunity when he left.)

If any signing was to signal that Robbo may have a concussion, it would be that one. 

Yes, I just can't see Robbo signing Allan - not his type.  That said, stranger things have happened and very recently as we all know.  Allan would come with a lot of baggage and he's not the easiest or most dependable player to manage.  A bit of a prima donna from what I hear.

Personally from my view I’d say we still need a left back, yes we have Livingstone who I rate very highly and would love to see get into the team and he is a Mwell fan, ATS looks to be competent but made of jelly, so wouldn’t be against bringing in a left back to compete with Livingstone. Another striker, big, fast and athletic but can hold it in and score goals and possibly a No.10 or CM if Turnbull goes and Centre half depending on the how Mbulu and Donnelly injuries are.

Spot on. We'll have to move others on though.

On our budget? A striker with all those attributes? You're not asking for much....

Don't forget Dunne is probably No.1 for the left back spot depending on the formation.

Only a minute long video but good wee variety of goals to see from our new sweet prince 

Some very decent finishes there, and pace to burn. Fingers crossed he can adapt to Scottish football. We might have unearthed another wee gem.

If the manager is going to change the way we play I look forward to seeing this team playing 

                                                                                            Gillespie 

                                              Tait.                         Aldred.                   Dunne.             Livingstone 

                                                                                Campbell.           Turnbull 

                                                                Ariyibi.               McCormack.              Frear 

                                                                                               Johnston 

Total change of style with that eleven but with the gap between us and the bottom 2 at the moment giving us a cushion maybe this team  could get a wee run together

I wouldnt mind seeing a 4-3-3

Gillespie

Tait,Aldred,Dunne,?

McHugh,Campbell,Turnbull

Ariyibi,?,McCormack

 

A decent left back and maybe more of a traditional target man would be nice. Plus with Carson, Hartley, Cadden, Johnson to potentially come in plus the other squad members we could have a potentially strong team there.

Personally would love to see a midfield 3 of Cadden, Turnbull & Campbell but thats dreamland stuff

I see Michael O'Halloran has been released by Melbourne City.

Probably going to be other interested clubs in the league but would be a  very good addition if we could convince him to come here and kickstart his career again.

With the alignment of the text going all wonky, I’m guessing what formation that is. Is it 4231?

Why would we waste McCormack in the trequartista (if fannies nowadays get away with "no.10" as a position I am using the good ole hipster Italian version) role?

Get him up front

Looks like if 4 players are at the back with 2 in front and 3 in front of them and 1 up front then it's a 4-2-3-1

Tbf I can see a dodgy page full of names aswell but might be due to different phones etc. But a good lineup but defo got to have McCormack up top get him banging in the goals

I wasn’t trolling Yodo. Thanks Supermarv.

As it goes, I’d like to see that formation given a whirl too. I suppose the only question would be around whether we would have the players with the passing and game management attributes to play it.

So if we didn't already know, you've just confirmed that even although you can't even manage simple formatting, you're still a smartarse know-it-all twat that actually doesn't have a clue.

It actually says it all about how you're viewed everywhere other than in your own head, that you can post what looks like a 2-2-1-1-1-2-1 formation, and no-one assumes you've made a mistake. It's just, here's this mongo again.

Be interesting to see if we sign any other players before the trip to Tenerife or take any trialists again 

On our budget they’re probably all crashing out at Alex Rodriguez maws house

It was all over the place on my phone but fine on a desktop.
