I don’t think this has been suggested, but what about Anderson at RB? Was it not McKinnon that played him there when Thomson was out injured?

Our problems lay last season because we played players out of position at full back.

 

You’re suggesting the solution may be... to play a player out of position, at full back, next season?

Not sure you can class Tait and Bowie as part of the 21/22 they are modern apprentices who are still very much learning the game. So I would say we have 15 with 6 to come in. That will include a keeper, 2 strikers, possibly another centre midfielder who is likely to be Michael Miller as I've heard it's a done deal then 2 more for defensive cover.

We made a mistake re-signing Davo, wage would have been better spent on a right back. I would also like to see a big commanding centre half come in, someone who just commands the penalty box and none of our centre halfs have done that recently.

He'd be an ideal candidate for wing-back, certainly much better than a converted centre half. But as part of a back four, no. We need actual full backs!

I think I'll have a meltdown if we continue to do anything other than sign a proper right back. I genuinely think we'll start the season with McKay there in all honesty. And it will continue to be rotten.  That isn't Dave's fault (much in like how we had no width when Matthews kept getting shoehorned in as a winger). It's just down to the system.

I'm already resigned to this and I'm trying to not think about it. It'll be McKay with Miller, assuming he signs up, as back up and Watson as the nuclear option. I've still got a reasonable level of confidence in McGlynn but the right back issue is the biggest black mark against his performance since he came back.

Iv defended mcglynn not getting a rb in last season but if he doesn't sign one this summer it's indefendable. A clear problem area for us last season. If he doesn't I can only imagine he sees mckay as a rb but he's a far better cb who could play at rb if needed. Watson showed enough last season to be a capable backup but not any more than that.

No absolutely agree, we 100% need a RB, however if Watson isn’t to get a game I wouldn’t be surprised if McKay or Anderson was to start there.
I’d play Bene & McKay as my Centre half pairing.
Would also love it it we could get Wright back from the rangers on loan, he looked an excellent young keeper

So just to be clear your preference is both for a right back and a Wright back too?^_^

I too am hoping that McGlynn brings in a genuine RB as my preferred central partnership would also be Dave and Bene.

Um, okay. So we're not getting many, if any, more new signings any time soon...

The plan is for Grant Anderson to be used as the main striker for now, and it sounds very much like right-back is Dave McKay's to lose.

Vaughan won't be back until September. Dingwall may be slightly later than that.

We've offered a contract to Dean Lyness, but he's still to make up his mind.

I trust John McGlynn entirely, but I didn't exactly love what I heard there. He's asking us to take a lot on faith.

I really hope this is just us getting by until the loan market starts to move in August. We can't really be going to rely on Anderson, Vaughan, Bowie and Smith as our forward options, surely?

I liked the bit where he said he was cool.
