Connell is out of contract at Kilmarnock in January so I think they are getting a wage off the books before being honest letting him go, I would take Cameron from them rather than nobody come in but he wouldn’t be my first choice 

Would agree with this, definitely in the beggars can't be choosers part of the game.

Keep hoping for a tweet from Starks Park, if it comes I hope it brings better news than the last one on deadline day did! 

 

I see on this day in 1978 the young Gordon Wallace scored 4 against Queens Park.  I remember it at the time,  I reckon that was the performance that finally got him his move to Tannadice and brought his name sake back. Can't be too long til we see "on this day Willie McLean resigned as manager to move to Ayr Utd"

Ngwenya is a strange one, Liam Dick seems to have reinvented himself over the summer and Young looks capable but needs development. 

Dick has reinvented himself from being completely shite to just being a bit pish. But aye, Ngwenya doesn't look up to much. Need to wait until he actually plays left back to fully judge him tho.

Was that not after Gordon Wallace MK1 returned to the Rovers (early '78) as I'm sure when he scored the four against QP we were in the First Division and they were in the Second.

They beat us 4-2 in the return at Hampden and we scraped through on penalties. One of the QP players who gave us no end of bother in that game was one Ian Ballantyne.

After what can be most politely described as 'teething problems', the Rovers programme should return to its full size 48 pages for the Inverness game.

Plenty of reading about Rovers past, present and future and plenty of great photography from Tony Fimister, Eddie Doig and Jim Foy.

Still costing considerably less than the price of a pint down the High Street.

Unfortunately he’s now behind Nicolson (the ICT LB loanee) at Elgin City, so the hoped for development is looking unlikely. Don’t expect him to get any more than 15-20 minutes a game at most.

It's worth nothing that deadline day is actually tomorrow.
If we were paying a fee for a player that most likely would have been done by now I would have thought. We'll be looking at either free agents or loan deals so this deadline doesn't really affect us beyond bigger clubs bringing in players allowing us to then loan someone from them.

It kind of does mean something as IM stated his squad would be in place by the end of the window and how long do we continue to wait for a striker or even cover at CB as injuries to either CB would cripple us.

Starting for Killie tonight against Hearts and has bagged himself a goal.

When did he state the squad would be completed by the end of this window? If the right players aren't available then I'd rather run with what we have than waste the money on someone just to fill a spot on the bench. We do need players but we also don't have a massive budget to play with. There's still another month where we can bring in loan players and free agents.

We stated it in an interview with Raith TV around beginning of July. We also signed Connell who is exactly the type of player you don't want.

We? Sorry Ian. Connel makes sense as a signing. He's just the same type as gullan who isn't suited to playing up top on his own. Until he does something it's hard to justify giving him a start even if he does need a run of games to get going. Quite a difference in how gullan played once he got his goal as an example for that.

We was clearly a mistake, just like spelling his name with one l. Connell signing makes no sense. A striker who wasn't good enough for Killie last season, doesn't score goals and sits on out bench every week. 8 goals last season in the seaside league and 6 goals previously on loan at Airdrie. All goals scored in a league lower than us.
