  1. The St. Mirren FC 2018/19 Thread

    I don't care if we bring in another 3 loanees. If they are the best available at this point in time, I'm all for it. We lost at lot of our preparation due to the management situation where we'd have presumably been talking to players whose contracts were expiring. If we end the window with 8 loan players and even 3 or 4 stay on beyond that, it's been a worthwhile exercise. I will admit I'm a wee bit concerned about the signing strategy at times but I'm definitely in the 'wait and see' camp. To elaborate, I wouldn't have prioritised holding mid as a position we're most desperately in need of so it's a bit of a head scratcher when by our own manager's admission our priorities in terms of strengthening lie further up the park but if Stubbs feels that Jones is too good a player to pass up and he'll strengthen the squad and first XI considerably, then I'm all for it.

    Fair enough but we have McGinn, Magennis, Flynn, Kellermann, McShane, Erhahon, Kirkpartick, Willock and MacPherson who are all centre mids. We are also linked heavily with Polworth (albeit with McShane going the other way). So who else is going to give? Is this a wee Gus special of sign as many central mids as possible and give everyone a shot?
  3. The St. Mirren FC 2018/19 Thread

    Not as handy as a bit creativity. In all honesty though, another central midfielder along with the rumoured Polworth signing will surely see at least two departing midfielders.

    Ambrose looks like he's been hitting the weights hard. He's not huge by WWE standards but is massive in comparison to his physique when he left.

    Only Bret Hart left from that stable. It was only 20 years ago. Mental stuff.
  6. Well they clearly don't fucking do anything about it as it happens often enough.
  7. Game's done, result as expected. No point in dwelling about in this thread and engaging fucking cretins like Bennett and the kid on Motherwell fan any longer.

    He may not have said that explicitly but I think that he'll mostly know who is definitely going and who is highly likely to go and will be at least partly basing the figure on that. I agree he won't get all the cash and nor should he. We'd be crazy to spunk it in the oner. I'm all for giving him some extra funds to bring in a couple of good quality signings but definitely not overstretching.
  9. The St. Mirren FC 2018/19 Thread

    Definitely interesting. I never expected as many as 5 still to come, even with the McGinn cash. I dare say that's also on the basis that another 3 or 4 are also going to leave. I'd have thought a winger, centre forward and central mid (if the Polworth for McShane rumour holds water) were going to be the players arriving. If he's saying 5 though, I'd imagine centre half and right back cover on top of that too which would give us a very healthy squad indeed. I like that the new Danish guy has more or less publicly courted Greg Stewart to come and join him after Stewart recommended the move to him. That would be a top but of business and one that might have become slightly more likely now that there are extra funds available.

    5 players what? Still to arrive?
  11. The St. Mirren FC 2018/19 Thread

    Think DZ is on the diamond white.
  12. Quite shocked that Killie have sold so few. They used to be miles ahead of us in terms of things like avg attendances and ST sales. Think we ended on about 3,300 STs sold which is good for us but I thought the Stevie Clarke factor would have boosted Killie's ST numbers significantly.

    I'm guessing you've never read a Haiku Hibbee post. Every post he makes is a Haiku, including the one you've quoted. It's actually brilliant.

    I also know no c**t who remotely grudges it. Nor should you. Using the James Maddison and Jack Grealish calculator and factoring in inflation (well, English football inflation), he'll leave Villa in two years time for about £60m and Hibs will get a hefty sell on cut of it. Then we'll come a-knocking for 33% of that too.
  15. The Hibernian Thread

    I can get that. At the end of the day though, what a piece of business it was by Hibs from start to finish. Got one of the very best young players in Scotland for a pittance and got a cracking profit on him.
