Livingston - all the threads merged

Recommended Posts

Great read guys; it's very refreshing to visit a clubs thread without the constant trolling. Every club in Scotland are selling clubs unfortunately. As mentioned previously, letting players go for the right price makes the club far more attractive for future signings. Ideally you want to attract players who have the potential to be at a lot higher level in the game than where you are and you just need to enjoy the talent on show at the time. Don't feel Carrick comes under this bracket, he won't be missed and is replaceable. 

Good luck to Buchanan - great move for him to stay full time and play 1st team football.

Think you’re a bit like me Andy, I’ve been saying as much since Charles Burnett was (attempting to be) the commercial manager. Motherwell aren’t perfect, and they’re certainly having a torrid time of it on the park at the moment, but there’s no doubt their image off it has improved greatly. They genuinely seem to have a grasp of things within their community, after a few years out in the wild. I’m not saying hiring some marketing lackey is the magical answer to all our problems, but there’s no doubt in my mind that having someone with advertising and marketing acumen in the club is as important as a 4G pitch, new stadium, etc. If we don’t, we will be left behind. I’ve got absolute faith in John Ward’s intentions for the club but one man can’t do it himself.

 

My mate's son offered his services in marketing/promotion for next to nothing but Livi wanted him to travel back from Glasgow to Livingston every day so he couldn't do it, he's living at a flat in Glasgow and attending Glasgow Uni as well as a marketing job in Glasgow instead. We really need to get someone in marketing at Livi if we want to increase our gates and make the most of ourselves playing in the Championship.

You've said it now. :lol: We've had our fair share of trolling on this thread, esp going through 2 admins.

Heard a rumour about Bobby Barr coming back, he tweeted a few days ago something along the lines of "Livi Days" with a pic of him in a Livi top. Probably where the rumour came from tbh.

Derek Lyle could be an option for a 6 month deal if he's actually being freed, not one for the future but is guaranteed a good couple of goals and can definitely finish which has been one of our biggest issues

Funny you say that, I also saw that tweet and thought the same thing, if we do indeed lose Josh Mullin, Bobby Barr would be a decent replacement for sure. Not sure how much is in that though.

Josh Mullin is twice the player Bobby Barr ever was. Blew too hot and cold, was nigh-on unplayable on his day mind you, and had a real penchant for tweeting shite about that club from Govan (each to their own).

Telling John Hughes to get fucked was probably one of his highlights.

I agree Josh Mullin is a better player, that’s why he’s had interest from premiership clubs and Barr is playing in League 1, but going back to realism, Bobby Barr is exactly the type of player we have to go for, a player in the league below that has potential to do us a decent turn for a season or two and won’t be on a lot of money.

Unfortunately Barr has had a number of shots at the championship and failed to really impress on any of them in my opinion. With all due respect to Bobby; League 1 is his level now. If we were stuck in the position of going for an explayer I'd rather go for someone like Danny Denholm; least-ways you know what you're going to get.

On Carrick I think it had become increasingly obvious over the last twelve months that he wasn't really an out-and-out striker.  Cant really complain about his work rate or the fact that he played half a game with a hand broken in several places rather than be substituted but it is pretty obvioiud that he is an attacking midfield at best.

Has it occurred to you that the players themselves don't want to be tied down on a long contract to Livingston?

Derek Lyle would be a good shout at least until the end of the season,a good striker is all we're needing now unless we lose any more players over this transfer window.

Bobby Barr split opinions, I always liked him and thought he improved with us, his crossing ins't anywhere near the standard of Mullin's but he can take players on and get past them better and when he cut inside he always became a goal threat. Ripped Falkirk and Raith to bit quite a few times for us and linked up well with Keaghan when we hit teams on the counter. Would hate to lose Josh but Bobby would be a decent replacement to soften the blow. Would give us a pacey winger anyway, and  a good option from te bench when players are tired.

I think a big indication is we played Keaghan out of position on the right today and he struggled but we stuck with him while Mullin remained on the bench for 90 minutes.

I was just about to ask why Mullin hasn't had a game for us recently. Is he struggling with injury? Fallen out with Hoppy? I saw on Twitter he was in Budapest on Monday (might have been an old tweet mind you). Has he maybe signed a pre contract with another club and waiting for it to be resolved so he doesn't get injured?
Very strange state of affairs tbh.

He isn't signing a contract so the club want to sell him, it's just so that he doesn't get injured during the window. Just money probably + wants to go to a higher level

He’s in the situation that Danny Mullen was, he’s indicated he isn’t going to sign a new contract so we have made him available to other teams, obviously we don’t want him to get injured so we can get something for him this month. 

Wouldnt surprise me if he’s the other midfielder St Mirren are signing. 

Only time will tell though.

I don’t think it was a game for Mullin today , it was a game for rolling the sleeves up and battling that’s not one of josh best qualities

I'd get Robinson's contract extended if we can too, that's him on 5 goals this season and he's hardly played with him being our injured.

Keaghan Jacobs didn’t play well today, he probably wasn’t fully fit and played out of position, so hardly a fault of his own, Josh Mullin would’ve been the obvious choice to replace him but we didn’t bring him on. That tells me everything I need to know. 

He’ll be away this transfer window, Id be surprised if he wasn’t that’s for sure.

It was a game for players to roll sleeves up and I don’t think josh suits that type of play , he will probably play next week in cup. I hope he doesn’t leave , along with Halkett pittman and Byrne but josh hasn’t been playing that well for last 3-4 weeks.
