Murray has improved a lot this season. Looked more like shepherd at the start of the season but played well against us in the two playoff games.

Surely only two things would stop us getting Loy.  Houston not wanting him or the bod not spending the cash to get him. He loved it here the first time around and is Lee Miller not one of his best mates?

Murray is overrated push he needs four chances before he gets one on target and we obliged him by shootings free shot in each playoff game. Would like to see Loy back but can't see it happening.

Holiday season is upon us!? The management team takes wee break and some people wet their pants about us not signing anyone. Happens every year.

Yup and we've no been promoted yet.

A new manager, a new squad and a new board! Also less ramblings from our Chairman and less hot tubs. Not too much to ask?

Sit the Chairman in the hot tub and set to boil.

The deal for McCallum has fallen through, Houston believes he's found someone better.

Out of interest, do you know when we made the offer to McCallum?

They signed a striker from Albion Rovers and a goalkeeper from Albion Rovers. Both are called Ross Stewart. They also announced Gregor Buchanan today.

That's great if we're scouting at that level and we need a production line but at this stage I really don't care about signing school kids to play under 18 football. It's a bit of a dull yin if I'm coughing up for a season ticket and giving up my weekends to travel to Brechin or Dumfries to watch the first team. It's not really a consolation that we've got a few boys that might be good enough for the first team in 3-5 years time.


There are playing at this level basically because they are skint. That is not to say they won't be decent signings.

Nothing fancy, just a bit of chanting of the big mans name.

Anyway whats everyone getting all up in arms about an offer being made to a backup keeper?

I seem to remember the same moaning when Thomson signed and he looks more than good enough.


TBF I was not keen on Thomson he has however done pretty well.

They won't be paying these players great money because they are plotless. However that doesn't mean these players won't develop and be decent signings.

Not exactly sure when the offer was made. However, I was told that we were offering him more than Plymouth were.

Anybody else think that Biabi coming back would be the wrong move? Loy on the other hand would be a great foil for Fash and I would love to see that happening!

Loy would be a class signing but can't see it happening. I used to love when how he'd drop deep when he played us. It made us look like we were playing with an extra player on the park.

Dunno where this biabi chats coming from but I hope nothing comes from it. He was okay with us but nothing special. Remember being 2-0 up at Ibrox. Baird running after everything and not giving the defenders any time to play the ball. Biabi came on with 10 minutes left. Put zero pressure on the defenders. Game ended 2-2.

Maybe he's better now but he always seemed to be meh with us.

Why does anyone think Biabi is coming back?

Don't really think anyone does, it's just a bit of chat to fill the void created by lack of signing news or credible rumours.

Why would anyone want Biabi to come back? He wasn't anywhere near as good as the hype towards him makes out.

I didnt believe anyone did, I don't - hence asking why anyone is even talking about it.

Aye that's pretty much my biggest memory of Botti.

Baird was fucking sensational up front on his own that day.

My biggest memory of him was utter disbelief that he had got a good move to a big club to be quite honest.


I can see why Swansea would take a punt on him he was extremely raw but cheap and they already had both Fulton and Kingsley from us. For us the only real thing I can say was at least he was better than Taylor Morgan.

Am I right in saying he only scored for us at Tynecastle? Remember him scoring twice there but that's about it.

Wiki have him scoring 4 goals,likewise I was amazed at the fee we got for him.He has fair bulked up though and was a lot stronger when he returned to play last season against our development team.
