Matej has just put the Welcome to Scotland sign on his story on FB, wonder where he is going🤔 I’m going to guess Ayr 

I’d guess either them or Morton. Imrie will know him from his days at Livi and they are in need of a striker.

There seems to be a real spread in opinion on how he is rated amongst Rovers fans. With some thinking he is the answer to all our problems and others (myself included) thinking he was fine but had as many bad games as good ones. I mentioned before, if you take out that 4 game purple patch, he scored 6 goals in 40 games and 2 of those goals were against a rank rotten East Fife side and Banks O’ Dee. Obviously he did have that 4 game purple patch which he deserves credit for but it’s not enough for me to say that was his true ability and would replicated throughout the season if we signed him again.

Given we now have Connell in with some physicality, I would have been happy to see Poplatnik join as a squad player. Not a guaranteed starter but I think Gullan, Poplatnik, Vaughan and Connell would have been a decent selection of options.

However, I’m not sure he would accept the wage/role of a squad player with us when he would likely be a guaranteed starter and be paid a bit more accordingly at the likes of Ayr/Morton. Good luck to him, for as much as I didn’t think he was brilliant, you couldn’t fault his effort and the performance in the cup final will be remembered for a long time, he was phenomenal.

I liked him, smart player and better than gullan in my opinion and think with starting more games he would have got us 15 goals, yeah forgot about imrie knowing him from livi. It’s done now soon find out how he gets on guaranteed to score against us thou!!

Yeah, like I say, he definitely splits opinion and there will be loads of fans that will agree with your view. I just don’t see him being hugely prolific over a season at this level but we may well find out if/when he signs for another team in the league. Agree with your last point, an absolute certainty to score against us!

Hes maybe on the road back to us lol , Morton or Hamilton would be my guess though, and given hes now 30 and approaching his twilight years, we have Connell till Jan and if he's any good we may have the chance of signing him permanently

This is what happens when you piss about with signings not prepared for the first game of the season 

Exactly, pathetic signing policy still probably 3 short of where we need to be. Still need at least one more  centre half and another striker. Bench is still made up of kids with Brown still playing out of position.

According to folk who are at the game we were the better team in the first half but couldn’t score. So we can’t score and our defence isn’t very good. 

It’s a worry.

I’m praying that were not pinning our hopes on the players returning to try get us where we should be

This is the thing we are now playing league games getting players up to speed and uts going to cost us. 

Next week we have Dundee who are the only other team to get beat today. They will come at us to get back on track ams u don't think we are ready. 

Murray talked of being too nice and not seeing out games professionally well here we are, it's going to be a busy week.
