Summer Transfer Window '17

276 posts in this topic

For those of us who support Dunfermline Athletic, Queen of the South, Dumbarton, St Mirren and Livingston it's the start of the summer transfer silly season. Where average lower league jobbers generate some excitement, and whispers start to turn into full-scale 'transfer sagas'.

At the Rock it looks like being another busy window. Robert Thomson and Andrew Stirling are both confirmed as away to Morton and QOTS, whilst we bid farewell to a host of loan players (Stanton, Harvie, Vaughan, McCrorie and Nuttall)

I'll keep this updated with the official news, and will change around anything as and when it needs changed (eg should Morton go up, beating Motherwell in the playoffs, the Morton box will change to Motherwell). Likewise if I've missed anything here, just let me know.

If you want to remind yourself of January, just click here - a great window for St Mirren, an utter disaster for Raith Rovers

Legal points: This is my thread, and my weird rules are, erm, the rules. So don't try and change them. Also, any tabloid journos reading who are thinking of copying and pasting this into a newspaper (grammar and all) fancy asking first?

As all Pars fans have agreed since August, Gavin Reilly should be signed permanently if we want to even think about a playoff spot next season. If sir Gav doesn't join us next season, we may as well book our place in the 2017/18 League One season.

I think all of the above, except Loy, are out of contract at their respective clubs.

I wouldn't be surprised to see a couple of them back with us next season.

Smith and Loy are musts.

Davis should be top priority in the summer. He'll have other clubs scrambling for his signature but hopefully the injury has kept him off a lot of radars.

I see we're still on your list at the minute so..

Declan McManus will return to Fleetwood
Ryan Hardie will return to Rangers
Jordan Thompson will return to Rangers
Danny Handling will return to Hibs
Rudi Skacel is retiring

All after the playoffs anyway.

Daft that Morton signed Thomson and Keatings signed for Utd when it's still up in the air which league they'll be playing in. I realize Thomson signed for Morton ages ago.

 

Neither good enough for the top flight.

For those released, I'd be hopeful that we're offering contracts to McMullan & Herron (depending on whether Celtic offer McMullan terms). Hopefully we can keep a hold of them.

As for the rest, Gavin Reilly will be moving to La Liga next year as a marquee signing for someone. BRE is leaving Scotland and Spence will end up in League 1. The rest are all youngsters so who knows where they'll end up - but hope they all pick up something.

No doubt we'll be adding to the list of 'Outs' in the coming weeks (looking at you Hutton!)

I'd take Atkinson as a back up keeper for next year regardless of which league we're in.
