It's a running gag, I wouldn't worry about it.

Aye I thought that, would cost them a pretty penny that they dont have in any case, probably miffed cause they nevergot any of our players following McGlynn 😂😂😂

I’d rather we used Scott Agnew as a stop gap to cover injuries than waste a loan on another centre midfielder.

Yeah, we have Arnott and potentially Agnew available to see us through until Matthews is back.

Wouldn't be surprised to see Agnew get a run out in one of these last two matches actually.

I'd be surprised if we signed another midfielder even on loan. Yes the two injuries leave us a little short in there but we can change the shape to suit what we have available should the need arise.

Hence suggesting we’ll perhapssee a winger or two bunged into the midfield role.

Absolutely agree.

I don’t think young is tbh Tx not at the moment anyway, better loaning him to a league 1/2 club for this season. Dick can cover cb/lb but isn’t my first choice in either position tbh just don’t rate him. Would be happy if we sign a starting cb and Brody Paterson and cf . Midfield I think give arnott a chance tbh so no cover 

That was my take on Young AND Mitchell before we started…but Young seems OK and has developed nicely behind Dick last year. Fair enough view of Dick, but I still believe he’s a fair or better LB when not required to push up. Brody is a crap shoot, but you don’t win by not betting. As it stands, we have 4 mids, so Arnott is getting his chance.

Yeah: Stanton, Brown, Arnott, Easton and at a pich, Agnew all capable of playing in there.

I suppose there is zero chance of getting at least an able CB in before we inevitably lose to Kelty on Saturday to ratchet up the panic levels further?

Sure, why not. Who manufactures blood pressure meds, and has out BoD got an investment there?

Plus Ross and Connolly both have played midfield roles before, as additional cover.

He was very quick and direct and got in behind them a couple of times. I would be worried if that was our full team out there but it wasn’t nowhere near it and we will add to the squad. Murray wasn’t that fussed about winning the game obviously given changes etc he wanted minutes for the players and to try a couple of things like young at LB and Gullan as CF. 
I'm sorry but we shouldn't need to try Gullan as a striker. He was brought in as a striker. He's not good enough to lead the line.

He maybe has never been the main striker before was he not classed as a wide player at hibs ? He definitely plays better in a 2 than as a solo striker

I think that's the problem with gullan. He obviously has talent but no one has figured out what his best position is or how to use him effectively.

Teaming him with Vaughan would seem to be the best we’ve see, so that favors him in a two up top or ST/SS pairing…something Murray doesn’t seem enamored of based upon his time at Airdrie.

If in a 4-2-3-1 illegal could play in the 3 behind or Murray’s plan is to persevere and coach him into being a cf , time will tell

Was that not only for 2/3 games? Granted one was the 5-1 demolition of the city folk but I can't really remember any other games where he's looked the part in that role either.

Unfortunately, yes…2/3 games is all we seem to see of Vaughan these days. Let’s just hope that they’ve figured out a way he can play and not do it again! What I do recall about Jamie is him looking comfortable sweeping in from just wide of the D and shooting, while he often (not always, I know) simply seems to disappear in the goal mouth stramash.

Jamie Gullan has only looked good when we were in league 1 or when up top with Vaughan, but imagine most players look better in those situations 

Who can’t look good with this cantering alone beside him, 😍😍😍

We all know that’s rubbish. Gullan was awesome in the championship the season before last. Hardly League 1

His only good games were against Alloa and the Pars when we played the diamond with him and Vaughan up front and Kai Kennedy playing off them

Each to their own mate.

I'm afraid I have to disagree. He has been at best decent beyond a hand full of games above league 1 level. Again though, I think that's largely because no one can figure out where to actually play him to get the best out of him.
