  1. Saw those strips on twitter before, they are design concepts by some site called DesignFootball so not the actual strips.
  2. It was disappointing that we lost him so early last season to injury as he certainly looked a promising player in his few appearances he made for us. Looks a fast, direct winger who likes to run at defenders so could be a vital player for us this season. By all accounts he is injury free and in good shape so here's hoping he can really kick start his career this season.
  3. Interestingly saw on twitter Stuart Millar has said we offered Kurtis a new deal but he decided to turn it down. I really liked Kurtis and thought he gave us something different in midfield but you could clearly see his fitness was an issue...more often than not after an hour he was blowing which usually resulted in him being subbed. Would have liked to have seen him sign on again however but he's definitely not someone who is irreplaceable. Also, not sure I entirely buy into the idea that it was his consistency in the team that took us to the top of the league tbh, going back to that spell both Carrick and Gallagher really hit a real purple patch and they were both pretty much on the scoresheet every week. Not dismissing Roberts had a vital part (like many others) but I really think the two strikers were the catalysts during that winning spell.
  4. Pretty sure Burke is a centre half and Walker is a right back. Never seen many reserve games last season but went to the cup final at Livingston and I was impressed with Walker. Looked a solid defender and had quite a decent game, not surprised to see him being kept on.
  5. I'd be surprised if it was only us and Stirling who were interested in him...plenty of clubs in the Championship and L1 would have been in for him no doubt so surely someone at that level would have snapped him up if it was down to us being needlessly stingy. I'd say its more likely took a very lucrative offer to get him to head down to L2 and play part time.

  7. If thats true they must be offering him silly money....full time wages to play part time? I can't see any other reason why a Championship level player would move to League 2. Think we learned our lesson 2 years ago that paying over the odds for players can turn out costly business.
  8. Heard that the proposal Airdrie put forward to the reconstruction group was to extend the Championship to 20 teams in a 14-20-10 setup. Think a 20 team Championship playing each other twice would have been excellent and its probably the only format to allow proper reconstruction to happen without it impacting any clubs unfairly. More interestingly seems that reconstruction talks are still going on in the background and not strictly off the table as reported...hopefully that's the case.
  9. Do you not think if the SPFL were going about offering places on a reconstruction committee in exchange for their vote then the whole Dundee debacle would have been avoided and they would have voted yes in the first place. Interestingly Dundee made the point of saying if what they achieved in those few days after the vote was presented by the SPFL in the first place then they would have voted yes. I'd say that sounds like the creation of the reconstruction committee came about during those few days after ever other club voted and not used as some bargaining tool before it. Also, I'm sure if the SPFL were going about offering different clubs places on the committee in exchange for their vote then it would have appeared in a certain 'dossier' along with every other allegation 👀
  10. So what your saying is that teams such as Hearts, Partick, Falkirk and Edinburgh City all got offered places on the reconstruction committe in exchange for their vote and still got places on it despite voting no? Some deal that!!
  11. Null and void is apparently not even an option as sponsors and TV companies would be legally entitled to claim back money from the league if its not completed. The same money that the SPFL hands out as prize money at the end of the season so no sponsor or TV money would mean no prize money and many teams would end up going to the wall.
  12. The only options I can see is either calling the season or null and void the season and both have the same outcome for us. There's no way we can possibly finish the season with the amount of players in the lower leagues who are out of contract come June so no matter what UEFA or other governing bodies say that won't change. I don't see the point in waiting for another option to appear when there isn't one there. I dare say the board haven't taken this decision lightly, they have put the money in to try and get us back to the Championship and it looks like reconstruction is the only outcome that will allow that to happen for us this season.
  13. So what other solution is out there apart from calling the league?
  14. I'd be surprised if there wasn't some sort of reconstruction, especially after the debacle of this weekend. Too much has went on and the only way for the SPFL to save face will be to try and push through a solution that will prevent Hearts, Partick and Stranraer being relegated. The lower leagues had no chance of getting the leagues played to a finish due to the majority of players being out of contract so I'd imagine our best chances of being promoted are via reconstruction of the leagues.
  15. Do you really think after 2/3 weeks of ending the lockdown that they are going to allow mass gatherings again?
