  1. I'd be happy with arnott starting ahead of stanton. He's shown more than enough to justify it imo. Neither are particularly suited to the role though.
  2. Happy enough with the two signings today. Lb was a concern so glad dick has more competition there. Nolan is a complete unknown but I'm happy to go with Murrays judgement on it. I still back him and am glad he's finally got these signings over the line, but we need more. I liked davie asking Nolan "if he was chosen is he ready" he's no choice surely, he's our only fit natural cb. You're not getting the few weeks to adjust, just go and play. Just a small note on the club. Iv had two emails from the club the past two days. One was asking me to renew my season ticket and the other was about hospitality. Both of these should have been sent after these signings where anounced rather than after berra retired. It's amateurish that wasn't the case.

  4. Hopefully the first of a few anounced today. I won't hold my breath though.
  5. Just got home. Woke the bairn up to dig the sambas out, she's crying. It's been a while, but I'm ready gaffer. Chuck me in.
  6. At least Vaughan won't go out on loan to help relegate us again
  7. Iv held off getting my season ticket. Nothing announced re Goodwillie being the main reason. Iv held out hope that, that would be resolved before the first home game. That's looking unlikely in the same way that us having an actual cb is at this stage. If they announce dgw is gone tomorrow I'll actually go and buy a season ticket cb or not.
  8. Agree 100%. There has to be another reason that someone with his experience, who has just became a coach at the club has decided to walk away. He hasn't looked the same player from what iv seen this season but he isn't the type to walk away and leave a club hanging without reason surely.
  9. I'm all for it happening! I highly doubt it though.
  10. We don't actually have a fit cb available for the first league game of the season as it stands (no offence to Mason, but let's be realistic). I said I'd judge Murray after the first quarter, but if we can't even put an actual pair of cbs on the pitch then I'm afraid he is definitely under pressure from the start. Berra looked fucked after 50/60 minutes on Sunday but at least let us sign a replacement first ffs. I know I was ridiculed for saying this before, but maybe he did sign for mcglynn rather than the club?
  11. Even Gary fucking locke didn't provide this much entertainment...
  12. So what's the real world with that? I'm still having to treat people for covid, so I may have a different view on that. I was suggesting that, that would be a reason for clubs to not sign players who come down with covid though, nothing more.
  13. Imagine they did actually announce mcniel just to say they've made a signing.
  14. Potentially has unvaccinated players out longer term in the future should they catch covid. If you get annoyed at signing injury prone players then why ask the club to take that risk for unvaccinated players? (not aimed at you per se, I can't remember your stance on signing injury prone players) there's no real difference between the two scenarios.
  15. As long as its not gylfi, then I think we can give Murray until at least Friday before we hound him out for not signing anyone?
  16. Thankfully not. They are finished. He isn't a player anyway, I was just bored so thought id add to the Norway rumour tbh. I can't actually pronounce his name after knowing him for two years so I would love to see niall and davie giving it a bash.
  17. Iv a mate from Norway. He hasn't mentioned about signing for us but he has been "on holiday" for the past week. He's definitely not finished as well. They seem to dislike the fins as an aside.
  18. This game was picked because we beat Aberdeen last season. No other reason. It went as expected really. We had a few half chances but at 2 then 3 it was game over. I thought Stewart looked pretty good for Aberdeen albeit he wasn't up against much in gullan as the lone striker for most of the game.
  19. He certainly tried to fill a stand with injured players.
  20. Agreed. We can all see (including Murray) where signings are needed, but unfortunately these things take time. He seems to be after specific targets rather than just signing the first name offered to him as well which is encouraging. The cups, while providing potential extra income are not the priority. I'll judge him on his first quarter rather than these games.
  21. It was my Mrs that was telling me they had put a post on Facebook, I think it was, that said they get £1 per shirt sold. Regardless, it's good exposure for both causes so well done to the club for that.
