  1. The players have probably took one look on twitter and fans forums and they have decided no thanks, that lot boo at everything.
  2. The problem we have here is the manager now has till the end of the week to bring in new players to improve what we have . Is he going to be allowed any more budget due to the uncertainity over his future? Who knows. If he doesn't strengthen, whether that's down to no funds released by the chairman or another failed attempt at bringing in targets, he's going to be absolutely crucified either way. We are struggling, though we are listening to offers for one of our best players in Cammy Smith? I am not happy with this . Did anyone else hear a rumour Cammy was wanted to leave at the end of last season?
  3. Had a feeling this would be the case considering we are playing them tomorrow.
  4. Agree about the signings, some really good quality in there, though i thought we would be better building our team around our best performers who Stubbs inherited, with the likes of Cammy Smith off the striker as an example. It seems as it stands, we have a few problems in defence that they are trying to rectify, though we are actually just as weak up top if we don't play to our strengths with the players at our disposal.
  5. Hi folks, Dundee signed top up for auction over on Facebook with all proceeds going towards Raise for Rebecca in aid of young Rebecca McKenna. Bids will only be tracked via Facebook. Thanks for your interest. Auction ends 3pm today https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=616231562073698&id=558561561174032
  6. We are top of the league on merit. We have spent more wisely with our wage budget than the other trailing teams and I wouldn't be surprised if we are actually 3rd or 4th highest wage budget in the league, just down to how shrewd we have been with our signings. A lot of opposition fans claimed we bought our way to survival last season. We actually shipped out players into double figure and replaced them with around the same amount. That is a massive risk trying to build a winning formula, especially half way through the season. JR and JF worked absolute wonders and we have carried that momentum into this season. I don't think we have quite replaced Mallan yet, though Morgan has made up for his loss as the star man with his consistent displays of magic. We are now at another January window and the club are doing there best to move on players surplus to requirements to free space for players with Premiership quality. I am excited to see if we bring someone in close to transfer deadline day. I am hearing from a few sources including on here that an attacking player with top level experience is a target.
  7. Dislocated his shoulder pre-seasonish. Made a comeback after a few months out then his shoulder went again. Expected back early this year, It's a real shame, as he could have saved us getting someone else in as he did look the part.
  8. You only need to look at Kieran Tierney as a young player who has not looked back since being introduced to the first team at Celtic. There is also your young centre half that's getting game time. Writing a player off before he has even kicked a ball is unfair. I believe he is good enough to be a future Scotland cap and he has just enhanced his chances with this move.
  9. He has been in the Saints first team regularly for the last 3 seasons and will have made over 100 appearances once he leaves in the summer. That is close with what Ryan Christie has clocked up since playing from his Inverness days. It's unfair to put an age on a player to how he develops, sometimes playing at a lower level fail to get the recognition they deserve, though Morgan has stood out the last couple of seasons and now has his chance. Dembele, Ntcham and Roberts have all had schooling from Premiership and championship clubs, so not worth a comparison. I genuinely believe the lad will make it whether it's with Celtic or an English Premier team in the future.
  10. Should have binned his lawyer and used whoever represented Paul McGowan or Broadfoot.
  11. Complete passenger last season when so much was expected of him.
  12. Reported 100k, though if this is true, I would hope we have added some clause for sell on into it if its an out of court tribunal.
  13. McGinn looks set to sign for Hibs according to reports on Twitter.
  14. I wouldn't rule out him trying to make a career of it over there for a while. The MLS is now more attractive than it was a few years ago. Playing against the likes of guys like Pirlo, Lampard, Gerrard only to name a few with bigger crowds and in what you could consider better living conditions sounds to me like a good thing.
  15. To be honest, i think John has been led down the wrong path by his agent. Since coming in to the the first team at the age of 17, he has shown extreme maturity for his age and has looked the model pro for the rest of the academy players to use as an example. This is why i feel he has taken advice from someone, or has been duped into making the decsion not to return for pre-season, in hope it will push through a transfer. I had heard as far back as last September that his intent was always to move on at the end of the season, though who knows if everything with the current pre-season situation could have been different if he wasn't involved in the training ground incident with Thommohawk.
  16. Ex hibs striker Ross Caldwell was part of the group of players training with us yesterday.
  17. Billy Stark is NOT in the running for the job. I have it on very good authority that he is not interested.
