  1. I assume he's just been training with us, as opposed to being on trial. This happens every summer. I remember Stephen O'Donnnel doing this before he signed for Motherwell and Rankin himself using our facilities a number of years back. In fact, Rankin says that's how Doyle ended up being with us, albeit he's now playing as a trialist.
  2. Watching Rankin's post match interview, it doesn't sound like we're bringing in many players this window. Our first eleven should (hopefully) be good enough to not be in danger of relegation IMO, but realistically how often are we going to see them together considering injuries, suspensions etc? Just got to hope that the rest of the league isn't leaving us behind, and in terms of signings I've seen very little evidence of that yet. Still a long way to go of course, but the uncertainty surrounding the club just now is a tad worrying.
  3. I've always thought something was 'off' about Taylor but I really hope he's managed to get what he's due and, as Scotty says, fucked McGowan over in some way. In other news, Easton has signed a new deal to 2024. Happy enough with that, considering the state of the squad at the moment.
  4. I'm sure Rankin said in the YouTube interview that he was expecting a couple in the next few days. Doyle will be one of them presumably.
  5. Yikes. Anyway, apparently we beat Airdrie 4-0 in a closed doors match today. Ryan hat trick.
  6. Sounds like he's going back to part time. I think it's likely we're going with a young squad this season. Tough gig for Rankin in his first job.
  7. Yes, if we go into the season without adding to the squad then obviously that's a bit of a concern. I'm more looking at it from an individual player point of view. MacDonald is one of those players that was just 'there'. Granted, I wasn't at every game last season but I'm struggling to remember many positive moments. The signings of MacDonald and Mullin were a reminder to me to take other fans opinions with a pinch of salt.
  8. No loss IMO. Was extremely disappointing considering the rave reviews the Raith fans on here were giving him.
  9. I'm still wanting some sort of clarity regarding the Taylor situation. Why was he sacked? Results? I just read on Accies World a post by someone claiming to be ITK. They have stated that Taylor has 'upset a lot of people both within the club & outside the club'. What exactly does this mean? Football related or not? Until these question are answered (which they probably never will be) I'm still of the opinion that Taylor probably just about deserved this season (if we are basing it purely on football matters). A shit show either way.
  10. Finished 4-0 and 9-0. I'm firmly in the camp of 'pre season results mean f**k all' (especially given the level of opposition) but encouraging to hear some of the young boys played well. Hopefully the trialists are worth another couple of looks.
  11. That video just posted by the club is...something. Heavy Phoenix Nights vibes amongst other things.
  12. To the surprise of no one (well, me anyway), Popescu confirmed as not returning. Signed a deal with a Romanian team. Not the perfect player by any means, but I'll miss the big fella.
