    If Rory Loy were to sign for us it'd be an unbelievable signing and I'd be flabbergasted to be honest. He has a solid goal scoring record in the championship and if we was fit in League One then he would indeed 'bang them in' for us. Unfortunately I doubt it'll happen but I'd be delighted if it did. Also pretty content with Grant Adam, he's a decent goalkeeper albeit he seems to have lost his way a bit in recent seasons.

    He's a good player but his attitude and application can leave a little bit to be desired from what I've heard.

I might be proven wrong over the course of this season, but I reckon Lyle would be a very useful addition to any side in this division. He's been a thorn in our side certainly over recent seasons and even though he was only bit-part for Queens last season, I'd be very chuffed if he were to rock up (get it?) and sign with us. Still got a fair bit to offer at this level despite his advancing years imo.

    I agree. But plenty more fish in the sea and all that...

    Oh League One. It's good to be back.[emoji849]

    Where did you hear that?
  7. The Sons 2018/19

    If he's on a couple of hundred a week though then that's still a hefty sum to be paying someone, happy or not. All depends if an agreement could be come to by both parties. I'd love it if we could re-sign Stirling, he could be unstoppable in this league.
  8. The Sons 2018/19

    I'd happily take Lyle or Spence if it were realistic. A lot will hinge however on how much we can pay. The signing of either of those would indeed make it a Marvellous Monday. Is it going to be so though?

    What did he do that's caused this bit of a stooshie?
  10. The Sons 2018/19

    Hutton when on his game is very solid and reliable. When he's not, meh, and you notice every little mistake. At league one level though he should be a very good player. I'm happy he's re-signed and it's now up to Stevie to get creativity in and around him to compliment the defensive shield he provides. Dowie and Hutton being the first two signings for next season is very positive as far as I'm concerned. Hopefully Barr commits soon as well.

    My presumption is that your comment is largely tongue in cheek. If not, you must be very trusting if you believe anything uttered by that man. I certainly don't.
  12. The Alloa Athletic Thread

    Yeah I'd be happy to sign him up, fitness dependant obviously. What was his injury? Frank McKeown is another I'd look at, decent enough defender, although I suspect most of our 'centre-half eggs' will be firmly in the Craig Barr basket at present.
  13. The Sons 2018/19

    I think the same. I'd imagine they'll look to get out. But as you say, how that goes, will all depend on if they're content to cut their losses and get out. As you say it was always a gamble, but now we are where we are, could they consider it their best option to cut and run with what money they can get, despite that not obviously being anywhere near their desired figure or their investment? We shall see.

    What's the story with Meggatt? I've always rated him and wouldn't mind us taking a punt on him now that we're in League One.[emoji22]

    Absolutely. He was solid and dependable last season as well as winning absolutely everything in the air. I'd have been very happy with him staying had we been dossing in the Championship again so I'm delighted he's signed for League One. It's only our first signing but it's a very positive one. Well Done, Stevie.[emoji1303]
