Not really bothered about Connolly leaving. I'd have been more pissed off if it was to another Scottish side. He only started about every third game anyway. He can run very, very fast and that's about it. He was good when he was unknown and eased past defenders. Once they all had a look at him and knew what he was about he was less effective.
JDH if he goes to United would be a decent signing, but to be honest, not overly fussed if he leaves at this point. He has been dicking us about for more than six months, it's clear he has no intention of staying. Pull the deal off the table and let him go. He's hardly irreplaceable.
