That is a consideration but for arguments sake say we are well within the play off spots in January. I'd let his contract run down going for promotion rather than take 100k and lose him.

The sale of Tait and losing him in January fucked us over last season as we lost spencer with his injury. 

I think alot of people didn't realise just how good a player tait was for us as well. He played a role that I think mcglynn thought stanton would fill but due to our form falling off a cliff, he never really got going in that role. 

 

Happy with Murray's business so far. If we sign anymore midfielders I'll probably be questioning Murray's sanity though. Still plenty of time to get rest of the squad sorted and hopefully the players coming in will be of the same standard or better.

Couldn’t disagree more. Tait was garbage last season, albeit maybe being forced to play a little deeper. This is coming from someone who rated him highly prior to last season. Tait leaving had zero impact in our form. I think we all know what caused the atmosphere around the club to change with undoubtedly impacted performances on the pitch.

Our form dropped when Spencer got injured and then tait leaving seen us go further in to a hole. I'm not saying tait had an amazing half season for us but the type of player he was, wasn't replaced which did impact on our season imo. We were pish long before Goodwillie was signed.

If it’s true and Spencer has signed the new deal (I think it is) then were all good there now it will be the striker/Defence next being the priority

Has he not got 2 more seasons on his deal?

Quite incredible to say that Tait leaving had “zero impact” when him and Spencer played something like 80% of our passes into the final third in the first half of the season, according to Wyscout. A very fruitful half season, too.  I think losing that would have a very big impact, indeed. Certainly high than zero.

Genuinely can't say I'm too bothered, much in the same way I'd not have been unhappy if he stayed. I think most folk will be the same. He'll be solid at that level. League 1 can be a lot more forgiving for defensive errors.

It's stating the obvious and a little trite, but it depends entirely on who replaces him. He's a perfectly serviceable defender but there will be better out there who'll sign for clubs like us this summer. All depends on whether Murray can pick one of them.

Can I just ask has Vaughan still got 2 years left or is it just 1 I can’t remember? 

Pretty sure it's 2, google confirms to end of season 23/24

Should still be two. We must be paying him a fair bit considering he's proposed to his soon to be Mrs while at Disney World 😂 congrats to them though.

Really glad Brad has signed for another season, of the 3 main players out of contract I would have put him 3rd behind Musonda and Tumilty. Frankie for me is a versitile player who can play in a couple of positions, Regan whilst great on his day had a few off games but definately deserves a shot in the top flight, please just not Livi, Spencer is a great player but we have an abundance in midfield, especially given the 2 recent recruits. Overall very pleased with the way the squad is shaping up, 2 defenders and a number 9 and we're sorted.

That's Bene officially signed for Dunfermline. 

Surprised he went to the Pars being Rovers Captain I expect he’d go to Falkirk. Not overly bothered he’s not the player he was and I’m guessing he’d have been back up and not captain if he stayed. I’m sure the Pars will have offered him 1st team football and a decent salary.

3 defenders and a number 9 for me. We need two CBs to give cover until Lang is fit, plus a RB and obviously the elusive No 9.

I’ve seen on twitter and Facebook people saying he wasn’t offered a new deal at us obviously we don’t know if that’s true but surprised he never had any other offers championship level but 2 League 1 clubs did

Not bothered about Bene moving on what bothers me is we have had no list of released players or players who will not resign.

Some players are still on holiday, looking like Brad Spencer has Re-signed/ possibly still have to discuss a deal with Musonda who’s still on international duty, some Younger players like Bow and Mahady could still be negotiating to leave, these things take wee while
