I doubt Airdrie or Falkirk are looking for a striker, both are well equipped in forward players. Airdrie I think would rather sign an attacking midfielder and Falkirk would prefer a decent defender. 

I doubt there's many strikers in Scotland to suit our needs just now and I too doubt there would be any willing to come North for all we have to offer.

Get get it done! Get on with it and sign Carrick from Airdrie (Forfar tried) and the lad at Queens Park.😉

Tbh I'd take another striker if it meant McMillan going back to St Johnstone. We might yet lose McManus aswell. And id love it if someone wanted Sammon. McManus is the best striker we have the other two are gash. We signed a defender Ben Hall when Toshney went, he's not featured yet staggeringly he can't get a game ahead of Durnan. McCracken says one or two will be moving on ie Tidser being the obvious one, before we bring anyone else in.

Falkirk’s defence isn’t awful they’ve conceded 13 goals in 21 games in the league. They’d be looking at midfield players imo.

We're running out of decent options. It seems the only player who could potentially be on the move this month that fits the bill is Danny Mullen, but we're as likely to get him as we were Brian Graham.

So, unless McGlynn can pull a rabbit out of the hat, it's looking like we'll have to take a punt on a loan signing.

McGlynn in his pre-match interview says he has a loan deal lined up (Gullan?) and that something else came out of left-field today (Miller?) but that nothing is imminent yet and that his head is in a spin trying to work out the best way to go.

If anyone wants to follow all the great news coming out the AGM. 

Won't break even this year but will reduce losses. Also the club is paying rent to Starks Park Properties. Well, in theory it is as its outstanding. Great.

Surely if something came out of left field today that would point to Kenny Miller?

I can’t see any team in the top 2 leagues touching him with a barge pole so Raith might be his best option.

The best way to go is definitely not Kenny Miller.

If Millers whats come out of left field that''ll be a huge drop in his wages that we cant afford

And with that huge debt thats hanging round the club we really need to get outta this league pronto

Our cost base in the Championship was apparently too much for the club. Probably as a result of the board backing that idiot Locke to the gunnels.

Aside from having a squad of ridiculously poor players we also offered deals to the likes of Coustrain and Osei who barely saw first team action and weren't good enough for that level. 

The AGM makes for grim reading and sums up quite a lot about where we're at for now. The Challenge Cup is a good example of things wrong with Scottish football. The club are literally saying you either hope you get knocked out in the first round or go on the get to the final.

High time this challenge cup malarky was given the heave, next season we should do our best to get put out first round 25k for runner up doesn't make up for lost gate money ,lost hospitality income etc

Guy at my work said we had been in for goodwillie, but it had been put out to the fan groups and they said no. Doubt there is much truth in that though.

Some positive news after all the bad stuff:

- Hospitality targets being met(75% take up) 

- Pitch starting to generate income (but no indication of how much this is - i.e. is it a decent amount? 

- Season ticket target met

We got a fee for Euan Murray (no details) and are awaiting the verdict on Kevin Nisbet. 

Still generally bad news though.

I wonder who the 4 targets we've failed to get were? Sutherland would've been one, and Longridge and Graham also fit the criteria described.

Problem with this is that you could get knocked out in the first round but your opponents for a Saturday game down the line get through. End result being you still lose out on Saturday ticket sales and hospitality takings but you get even less prize money. Lose-lose.

Very true.
And it wouldn’t be an issue if we weren’t unlucky and had away games instead of home games against well-supported teams.
