Great news about Musonda, and encouraging news that Hendry is still in talks. I won't miss Ugwu; he wasn't terrible - had a physical presence  but was low on skill. Armstrong is a loss but his crosses won't be missed at all. Now that we've Musonda and some decent players coming in, a much strongr looking defence and the possibility of hanging on to Hendry and Spencer we could have a team that will have the rest of the league shiting themselves.

Happy enough with Musonda re-signing and hopefully makes a full recovery from his op.I,d have kept Ugwu as think he has a lot to offer in the the right formation.

 

Wish Davo all the best,great servant to the club and a player that came in for a lot of unfair criticism

I think Ugwu would have been better in a more workmanlike type of team like Ayr or Morton. Maybe he was beginning to adapt to our style, but McGlynn has decided he's surplus, like Duku. Duku is the great mystery, he had the whole country taking notice then entirely disappeared;  Covid? Who knows.

Davo has been a great servant,he leaves with everyone's gratitude surely. Maybe like Jason Thomson he'll do a job for Arbroath  😁

I wanted us to keep Ugwu but if McGlynn is presumably happy to see the back of him that should indicate he thinks he can do better than him, so fair enough, that’s a good sign.

Not sad to see Davo, Gozie or Duku leave.  Davo has been a great servant but I'm not a fan and his attitude and temperament was shocking at times. Still believe there is better out there to replace Duku and Gozie. 

No surprise to see Jack Smith leave, most injured player ever.

Dan Armstrong and Macdonald will be missed but can be replaced. 

Davie McGurn will remain a club legend, but right time to go. 

Fantastic to see Frankie sign up again.

Now who do we sign. With all loans away and with at least 8 players away we probably have another 4 to sign along with the pre contacts  before a couple of loans come in.

Assuming all PCA’s sign…

3 keepers, we’re set.

5 CB, 1 RB and 1LB still signed but awaiting transfer…we can fill a back line but need a dedicated LB signing…7 backs seems about right, although another young L/RB or WB would be useful backup.

4 mids, 2 of whom are modern apprentices, with offers to two more mids…need to sign at least 2 experienced mids, Spencer and Hendry would do fine, and probably could use another experienced mid/winger.

4 forwards/wings, could use another forward and another winger.

 

Depending upon Spencer and Hendry, I see 4 to 6 new signings to set-up the team.

Wish Davo all of the best. He's been a fantastic servant. 


It’s just a shame the fans weren’t there to say goodbye at his last game. He’s been a great servant to the club, hopefully he’s invited beck once we’ve got crowds again for a friendly match like McGurn was. Davo often got stick for losing his head but he was certainly a good player for us over the years and had some great performances.
What’s his plans after Rovers, retirement, coaching, continuing to play? Not seen it mentioned.

He most definitely deserves a better send off than what he's ended up with. Regardless of some of the things that have happened, he's been loyal to the club and I'm sure he's only ever wanted give his all. Hopefully the club can invite him back when crowds are allowed and do something special for the guy. 

Wasn't there talks a couple of years back about him becoming a fireman? I wonder if he's ended up pursuing that.

Davidson has been far from my favourite player, but he has been a constant during some very successful times for the club.  A great servant to the club.

Gozie Ugwu gave us that back-heeled goal against Hearts and that wonderful finish against the Pars in the play-off QF. Two of the more memorable goals of recent times.

He scored three goals. Yes two of them were memorable, especially the one in the play-offs.. Duke scored more 'tho and he wasn't kept. McGlynn didin't see enough in either of them to retain them. I agree with McGlynn.

It was more the ‘Low on skill’ thing I was questioning

I doubt we'd get Musonda to sign up for more than a year. He knows another good season will mean he'll be set up for a move to better things regardless of where we finish.
