They're definitely both very good players. By "contribute little" I wasn't meaning they're incapable of contribution but rather that they might not get much opportunity to. It's possible the current squad has an over-saturation in both their preferred positions. Most likely I'm spouting crap with this, though, as much more knowledgeable people than me signed them. So good chance their roles will become clearer in time and both will prove important for us.

If the parent clubs are paying their wages then the risk in having them in the squad is minimal. Last year we had a bit more of an issue with suggested expectations over McCrorie's playing time which seemed to impact us.

For a side who often were described as bullying the midfield in recent years; we've looked decidedly "powder-puff" so far this season. That hasnt been helped by the somewhat card-happy refereeing though.

Aye Williamson did well at Arbroath and Lewis had good reviews from Gerrard when he was there, but neither have played at this level till now, and so far neither stood out as anything special to get excited about. Both young players though and will hopefully settle in and show us what they're about. Lewis has only played against Sevco in the league then came off injured though, and apart from a wild challenge on Hagi i can't really remember anything from him that game.

COVID outbreak at Rangers could mean McCrorie has to play in goals for their European game :D Good fucking luck to them

The experience with us may have given him the confidence to improve this season, who knows, happened with Liam Kelly. He was a completely different keeper coming back to us in his 2nd stint, after being on loan with us in League One. We'll soon find out tonight anyway.

Yeah think we also need to get Reilly out on loan to release some money too.

Any news on Reilly .

Was hoping Queens would make a move for him.

Would be a bit of a gamble with Reilly recent injury record but worth the risk .

I believe four clubs have made enquiries.

Previous good relations with Arbroath; East Fife; Raith; Ayr and QoS.

Can almost rule out Arbroath as we'll almost certainly be looking for guaranteed level of appearances and they already have two of our fringe players. The same could possibly be said for Raith.

Martindale's relations with Hopkin might swing things in Ayr's favour but they're certainly not without their troubles and the recent covid outbreak might have an impact on the decision.

Ultimately I know nothing.

We're looking for them to be paying more of his wages than has been offered so far, to help us free up some money to bring in another player.

As said above, a lot of clubs have asked but none want to pay his wages so we've rejected it. I'd imagine you'd be taking on at least 700-1k per week to get him in
