  1. We got a significant sum of money for Kevin Nisbet last year, so I’d be surprised if there was a particularly significant financial loss. We made no secret of the fact we had all staff on furlough until football was back and we got an increase in prize money for finishing 4th (presumably this was budgeted for though). We also sold McManus for money this summer. It’s also worth noting that the German investors increased their share/investment early. The timings of which seem to have coincided with the bad news about the floodlights (as well as the training ground news). It’s very unlikely that the floodlights are being funded by our first team squad budget.
  2. We do. Every team taking part in a cup game shown on tv gets a set amount of money, depending on the round. Plus we’ll get about 40% of ticket revenue.
  3. Only mentioned Dow, as Grant mentioned him as a central midfielder. Agree that he would be best suited to an attacking role in a midfield 3 though, assuming we keep playing with wing backs.
  4. We now have Dorrans, Wilson, Cole, Pybus, Dow and Thomas for the 2 midfield roles. I’m wondering if we can add Paul Allan to the list of players we might look to loan out?
  5. Need to book seats for the Partick game, if you’re a ST holder. Sales seem to be open now.
  6. Great effort and if you keep up that level of support, you should be capable of remaining the best PT team in the country for a wee while. That must be (at least) similar numbers to those that FT teams like Ayr, Morton and QoS get. If you end up near the guy that was co-commentator last season, that would be enough entertainment to justify buying a season ticket anyway!
  7. Is the staggered entry due to the poor access to the stands? No sign of it in stadiums with plenty stairwells/access points and/or large concourses. Think Morton potentially just have one turnstile/entry and exit point for each stand, so are trying to avoid crowds gathering.
  8. Keep crying. Won’t get any sympathy from us. You won’t even be able to claim you play the best football in the league anymore, as you watch us stroll to the title. Watch us smash all the records for most goals scored, most wins, most points and biggest ever derby wins along the way. Looking forward to your meltdown after a Todorov hat trick on the 20th, to shut up the racist Raith fans as well.
  9. Dorrans confirmed on a 2 year deal. Squad’s starting to look really good.
  10. I feel like, for games against championship level teams, we need to have 3 more natural defenders. Change I’d make to the back 5 from Saturday would be putting Watson in the RCB role, Comrie to RWB and having MacDonald on the bench. Breen will help add competition to a back 3 of actual defenders. It’s been noticeable in the St Mirren, Stenny and Dumbarton games that the oppositions’ more physical strikers are looking to move towards Comrie when the ball is out wide. It will cause us problems. That’s where St Mirren’s goal came from as well. In midfield, I think Dorrans would be a welcome addition. But I did think it seemed harsh that Allan was left out on Saturday. I’d assume he was just rested/Grant was keen to give the others some game time though. Allan played well in the first 3 games, but is untested against teams at this level. Front 3, if we stick to this system, will always be dangerous. Like the look of Kennedy in behind a front 2 as well. A fit Dow will also be capable of that role, as would Thomas, if we choose to play more natural midfielders in the middle. I’ll be interested to see how he copes in the middle against better teams, assuming he stays there. We have competition all over the park, with quite a few players (hopefully) returning from injury as well.
  11. Would be happy with Dorrans. A different option and would add a lot of experience to the midfield, when he plays. Think Grant would be more sensible than Crawford was with Whittaker and play him when needed, rather than squeezing him into the team whenever he can. Defence has looked shaky, hopefully Breen adding competition will help out.
  12. Grant’s worse than Crawford for switching keepers. At least he’d switch between Gill/Scully when they made mistakes, rather than switching every game. Good to see Cole starting, but seems harsh for Allan to be dropped. Hopefully Kennedy comes on too. Also hoping Watson’s injury is nothing serious.
  13. I bought for me and my friend. Forwarded the email to him and agreed which ticket was his and which was mine. Should work no bother.
  14. Good news. Think I saw somewhere that Breen’s contract expires in November or something, since it was extended to allow him to finish the US season on his loan spell there. Perhaps agreeing a sell on % or something is the issue, I don’t know. Pure speculation on my part. Looks like he’s planning to come here though, which suggests it’s almost done.
