  1. We're looking at needing probably another 5 wins to stay up. 100% doable in that run of games alone
  2. Absolutely huge run of games coming up, we're potentially 7 points from Europe and 8 away from automatic relegation. Game against St Johnstone is massive
  3. Injured, he had a bad ankle injury and has struggled with it. He had COVID as well and has asthma and I think it's completely fucked him
  4. Yeah it would make a lot of sense for it to be something similar. We have a relegation release clause in almost every player's contract which sounds a bit mental but Martindale is confident enough that we wont go down. I can only imagine that players are used to having that as a normal part of the negotiations/deals and gives them a level of security. I'm not sure I'd sign something like that if I was Forrest given the chance St Johnstone have of going down, especially when he could probably get a bigger move in the summer. In all honesty though he's not a huge loss for us, he isn't a winger you look at as hard to replace. He's just an average Premiership winger at best
  5. I can only imagine Forrest has insisted on a relegation release clause at St Johnstone and they've (obviously) refused given their current situation. He's too good for the Championship and St Johnstone won't pay a fee for a player that could end up walking in 6 months for nothing. Can see him going down south or at someone like Motherwell to be honest
  6. I would imagine 1m + a sell on is in 'bite your hand off' territory then
  7. There seems to be a good few running with the story Burnley prepared to make move for Livingston defender Jack Fitzwater | Daily Mail Online Burnley 'weighing up move' for Livingston defender Jack Fitzwater - transfer gossip | Lancashire Telegraph Jack Fitzwater 'lined up' for shock Newcastle transfer as other EPL scouts impressed by Livingston defender - Football Scotland Newcastle 'targeting' January transfer for Livingston's Jack Fitzwater | Glasgow Times West Brom academy star tipped to make shock Premier League transfer - Birmingham Live (birminghammail.co.uk) It's a really surprising link to be honest but I'd wager a bet there's underlying stats showing some level of remarkable performance. Could be one for @RandomGuy. but surely he's only going there to be loaned out/deep backup with U23 game time
  8. I think Fitzwater would be a massive loss for us. He’s been our best defender this season, he looks completely changed from last season. I’m not even sure what the right price would be, given it has a chance to derail our season completely if he isn’t replaced. 1m in a lot of money for him but we’d need to spend a chunk replacing him - maybe someone like Robbie Deas?
  9. Utterly confuses me, I really hope he comes good for us but he can't afford to stand still and wait for chances to come with us, which he does so much It might be to do with the difference in physicality between the two leagues, Nouble tried a few shoulder bumps today and it didn't seem to go as he thought it would. Hamilton had a chance against Aberdeen (I think) where he had a good 10-20 yards on Bates and he beat him to the ball
  10. To be fair Hamilton came through our youth setup but yeah our recruitment is our main strength. We use stats based recruitment as far as I'm aware in a moneyball approach to finding cheap superstars
  11. I don't know what it is with him but he might've found his level for now. He looks lazy and uninterested when he plays up front for us. Does zero running and looks incredibly slow. Nouble looks 10x the player, I didn't realise how quick he actually is!
  12. At that level Jaze should be shit hot. He's a winger with tricks up his sleeve that loves to take on defenders. He's quick and direct but ultimately untested at this level, played really well in the League Cup group stages and looked like he'd be in our first team before a bad injury on the first game of the season and struggled to break in since
  13. I don't think so but he was dropped a lot in his first season here by Martindale because he did absolutely zero defensive work or tracking back. I think it was something he worked on after that though. I'd imagine he's way too small and lightweight for that role defensively also
