And hey, we've already got a great reaction jpeg for anyone who supports the new manager too vociferously on Pie and Bovril... 7C208C21-456E-4F2F-9015-28D5B053EFEE-768x512.jpeg.789134250d0e01f6c16fdc3338b2184f.jpeg

Wait until he opens the desk drawers and it's just full of baseball caps...

As some have said he's articulate and says the right things - fitness, high pressing, application, and as he has proved likes slick football. Revealed he knows and likes how we play and the type of player we have, hinting appreciation  towards McGlynn. Not so sure the players will fancy a six day week 'tho!

Brody Paterson would be a great shout at left back to bring in. Energetic young full back who likes to get up and down the pitch. Out of contract in the summer, gained promotion with Queen’s Park and narrowly lost out on promotion on loan to airdrie last season under Ian Murray, would lead to competition for spots at left back.

Notice in the press conference video he says he's confident of retaining Spencer. Have heard Spencer is happy to stay if someone would speak to him about a contract however Falkirk are keen on him, which isn't new information.

Don’t think Dick is quite championship level tbh and young could do with game time on loan to build up experience.

Yep agreed, Dick would need to be off the wage bill first before any new LB came in, problem is he's Full time ............. Maybe McGlynn will take him to Falkirk though

Brody also a local boy from the Kirkcaldy area and started every game except 1 that he was on loan at airdrie so Murray must rate him. But yeah, one has to in order to free the wages up.

Dylan Easton and Frizzel to follow supposedly.

2 very good football players,   Easton is box office,   Frizzell more of a grafter, but still effective,   both are front foot players,  helped by a competent supporting cast,    As stated on another thread they both lack pace,  Dylan is electric over 5 yards though,  Frizz Labour's in the running games...

 

Massive difference between midtable  championship to Upper League one in terms of quality,   look at how many goals scored in League one to championship, night and day,    Is the Championship not a physical, defensive league .....   

 

Good luck to Dylan and frizz wherever they end up..

Not sure on Paterson making the step up to top end championship was steady enough in league 1 but that’s about it in his time at us.

As for the Easton and Frizzell talk I’d imagine you’d be in for both. Both stood out in our league especially Easty. When the goings good both will shine, I think in the bigger games and when things weren’t going for us they both kind of faded away a bit and are both a bit lightweight. Easton won’t be short of offers, imagine yous would have a good chance of luring Frizz.

One player I’d imagine Murray will defo be eyeing up is Kerr McInroy a standout for us in the first half of the season, not sure how he got on at Ayr but a lot of potential there.

All the best to Murray and Raith. Think airdrie were good to Murray and Murray was good to Airdrie. A good time for both clubs to get a fresh start.

I'd be quite happy if we went for the hybrid model again. Arbroath have shown how well it can work at this level.

 

Trolling aside, it would give us the option to get the better pt players in while still being able to sign ft players. Both spells under mcglynn we had that model at some stage and it served us pretty well. 

 

@Raith_Raverzannata is 100% a confidence player. If you get him full of confidence he is a standout at this level. The problem is keeping him at that level. He does also need a fullback who will support him so he doesn't get doubled up on constantly though. We've had far worse players than him playing for us in recent seasons. 

Raith Raver is 100% correct in his summation

Just watched the presser there and there were 2 things I took from it. 

1. Steven MacDonald came out and said the board liked Murrays abity to recognise and change the team. Also made mention of the amount of draws last season. 

2. When Murray was asked about out of contract players like Tumilty he very quickly talked about Spencer and the appreciation he has for him but never mentioned Tumilty. 

For me that's Tumilty away and we are going all in to keep Brad.

If I ever have to do a press conference, I hope I get to sit next to Steven MacDonald too. Ian Murray comes across like one of the world's great orators just by comparison. 
This. Guess you don't need the gift of the gab to punt light bulbs and bedside lamps.

McInroy is a much better player than Frizzell, and although a different type of player to Easton I'd much rather have McInroy than Easton. A full season with us and he'd have won POTY. He went to Ayr mid-season and his goals/performances effectively kept them up, I can't see Frizzell or Easton having had that impact.

I'd fully expect Murray to try and sign him and he'd be a better signing than Frizzell or Easton.
