Not expecting a world beater but we've had plenty of signings before who have come in to reactions of frustration only to do really well. The main concern I've got is that he's coming in on the back of an injury hampered season down south. It's a two year deal, so Murray clearly has faith that he won't have any issues. 

The reactions have mainly come from the Killie fans tbh, they don’t like him said by a few people because of his father apparently he’s a right C.U.N.T and so is Ross according to them

I would take very little from what Dunfermline fans say about him. He last played for them 7 years ago and broke into the team as a kid. Players develop a lot with experience and games. I'd be more interested to see the reactions of Scunthorpe fans or Killie fans minus the dad issue. Going by past media reports Killie were keen to retain his services before he went south.

No, he was rubbish regardless of his dad being a p***k. Maybe we were spoiled by having O'Donnell for the three previous years, but the drop off was ridiculous and he played a huge part in us getting relegated.

I reckon despite how irrelevant you think Dunfermline fans opinions are, you'll find them to be startlingly accurate. 

Football fans are fickle creatures, if Dunfermline fans were saying he was decent seven years ago you'd have Raith fans hanging there hat on that. Likewise if Killie fans said he was decent those opinions would be held as fact. 

 

As it is he's pish, its not like he's racked up a huge amount of games since he's left Dunfermline, he scudded about the lower tiers before some nepotism got him a move, one he got a regular run of games at that level he was miles out of his depth.

Was at starks park today to get my nephew his season ticket and saw a few players one of them never seen before (could be trialist) wearing the No4 training kit, never take the training numbers as gospel, just a bit of info, it wasn’t Millen or Paterson as I would’ve recognised them 

Did he have a mad stare and look like he'd gladly cripple his gran in a 50/50?

Was Donald Urquhart Johnny's son?

Johnny had a floor covering business and his son was Brian who latter ran the business when Johnny passed, Brian was a big rovers fan who was a regular at the novar but suddenly passed away a few year ago

Gozie was far, far better than Millen, had talent just looked like he couldn't be arsed.

I know nothing about millen and don’t really remember him playing for you lot, will soon see how he does and one thing is for certain the south stand will let him know if they don’t rate him

It won't take you long to let him know.

If the last few years have shown anything, it's that if you have two CB slots, play two CBs in there. If it's three CB slots, play three CBs.

It's a specialist position. Anything else is courting an absolute shoeing.

There is the odd exceptional case but in general, when a coach says "he can play anywhere across a back 4" that the coach really means: "in an emergency he might be ok playing CB for 20 minutes without fucking it up, but we'll be backs to wall and f**k knows we hope it doesn't happen"

True, but Dick seems miscast as a LB, perhaps he IS a CB.

Being sad a quick search says I didn't think Gozie was that bad.

Gozie wasn't bad, was a bit lazy but he had ability, he doesn't seem to stay long at many clubs. 

Even if a few of the players you've brought in turn out to be duds I still wouldn't have Rovers anywhere near the relegation question tbh, teams like QoTS, Morton and Alloa certainly seem worse off at this stage. 

 

There will always be examples of bitter ex fans proclaiming players to be shite, and there's always a chance a player can improve, but I'm pretty confident in saying that's not the case here. It's pretty bizarre because from what little I seen of Airdrie it seemed like Murray wanted to have ballers at the back. Can only imagine you're going of the reverse of last year and having a rampaging left back, and a right back that's terrified of running with the ball.
