Scott Allan released by hibs. I'd imagine wage demands would be high, but he might have to drop down a league If it means regular game time..

Could see Scott Allan going back to Dundee as he’s been there before and could offer him a decent wage compared to the rest of the championship

I can’t see there being any more signing/renewal news this week, I could see maybe 1 or 2 next week. He might run the rule over a few players during pre season maybe 

Pre-season trialists are invariably shite.

You'll wander away from a friendly trying to convice yourself that they 'look the part' - but in your heart of hearts, you know they are just pish.

True look At BRS all thought he was going to be a good signing turned out the opposite

Come on Spot On you are normally very good with rumours. 

There is no foundation to this rumour though (not yet anyway🙄)

Anyone in the know, or roughly know, when the Community Hub will start? (Diggers in breaking ground)

The club only recently got planning permission, I would imagine issuing the contract will be next then lead time for materials, as you won't be shelling out without permissions.

I was of the opinion it was some kind of box structure that was easy to put up as opposed to foundations brick and morter?

I'd think a lot of people will be holding back on season tickets until they see the quality of players we are bringing in.

I don't think that manufacturers will have this sort of thing 'on the shelf' just in case John Sim makes an order, as I said, you wait for permission before you pay out money on such a thing.

Obviously, what I was commenting on is when, if it is passed it'll be built in jig time I expect. Modular construction.

club have sold 500 season tickets in the first week, so can't imagine many are holding back. Maybe a slight downturn due to the fiasco with Goodwillie, and maybe a few will renew if and hopefully when the club inform us that he is no longer on the payroll - that could be a potential issue for some more than signings....

I think we'll not have many folk who are in a position where they're not coming back. There'll be a tiny amount, and fair play to them, but a lot of people will see McGlynn leaving as another key person being away. MacDonald's interview today was a positive step, in that it wasn't a complete car-cash compared to John Sim's one. He at least acknowledges that the signing was completely at odds with what they want to achieve.

So is the hub just going to be a glorified portacabin? 

I won't be buying a season ticket while Goodwillie is on the pay roll. I'm not saying I won't attend any games at all, but with the way everything is going I can find better uses for £280/300 than contributing to his wage right now.

Whether you buy one just now or wait until he’s been paid off, you’d still be contributing to his wages. Whether we like it or not, we all are!

Would love to be able to get Bowie back on loan but suspect Fulham will be looking to put him out to a higher level than the Championship.

Just seen him down the High Street. Would be good if we could get him on loan, Fulham should do it if only to make up for sending us Abraham 

If Bowie is coming on loan to Scotland it'll more than likely be to Dundee United as they have a partnership with Fulham.

Like I said, I'll probably still attend games but I won't be getting a season ticket as long as he's on the pay roll. It will likely mean I don't attend as many games. 

I know me putting any money in to the club will contribute to his wages in some way. I won't just completely walk away from the club iv supported for 30+ years though so will still attend some games at starks.

It will be steel framed with metal cladding/ facing brick to match the existing stand

, Bought my season ticket today couldn’t care less about DGW he won’t play on Starks Park that good enough for me I’m certainly backing the team and new manager , However I won’t be renewing my players fund direct debit until the Rapist has left

I might be in the minority here but I renewed my player fund when Ian Murray got appointed I wanted to contribute my part for him to get the players he wants in over the next 2 years
