Up now. 

Sounds like Spencer will make the bench, Masson and MacDonald are fine to go, but no mention of Mitchell as healthy. Two other unspecified players with “niggles”. Hoping for 1 or 2 players in, hopefully at least one by the weekend. Noticed IM’s total of players “in the stands” last week is 6 (Masson, Mitchell, Vaughan, Matthews, Spencer, Lang), so no mention of Bow.

Its a bit smoke and mirrors with Bow, injured still? Used to see him in the main stand but I'm in the South now.

Really good interview today, the more I hear from Murray the less I think of McGlynn. It also seems like Airdrie fans say its a process and not boom or burst. 

Also good call on Tait, had his time and done well for us but when he thought he had outgrown us the edge went.

Surely with a possible announcement tomorrow regarding a player coming in it’s either from a premiership club or it’s a free agent coming in, as if it was from down south it would have to be tonight be interesting to see who it is surely it’s got to be a CF and the other 1 a centre half

I agree we could do with another, more experienced, centre half. Joe Shaughnessy is one who I thought would be out our league but has been linked with a move to Hamilton today, would’ve been an excellent signing.

However, I’d be surprised if the two signings weren’t a winger and a striker. Murray has said for weeks those are the two positions he has been looking at. That was before Zanatta left too, so with his departure, I can’t see Murray deviating from his original plan.

We’ve got plenty of players that can play as winger Connolly, Ross, Mitchell, Coulson, Gullan and At a push Easton can all play there we need a Centre Back more than a winger because if Nolan or O’Riordan got injured we’re back to square 1

Like I said, I agree with you but it’s not what Murray has said in interviews when talking about signing targets the last few weeks. Just have to wait and see though, I actually do think we could do with another winger but it would be third in the priority list behind striker and then centre back.

We won’t sign another centre half. Scott Brown and Liam Dick can play there in a pinch, then Tom Lang will be fit again shortly. What Premiership side is going to send us their young player on loan to sit on the bench then be 4th choice when Lang gets back? Waste of money, won’t happy.

Shortly Tom Lang last I heard was out till Christmas. Hardly shortly. We need a CB more than a winger, however, before Zanatta left we needed a striker and a CB now we also need a winger. Doubt we will see 3 players but we need 2. Probably more likely to be 1.

I didn’t think it was as far away as that, but the original point stands. Imagine that conversation. “Hi, it’s Ian Murray, we’re interested in your young centre half. Yeah he’ll be third choice and game time will be limited but we need him for cover”.

I’d love to have another centre half but when we have two who are going to play and another two who can cover, that will do for a few months. If Murray thinks money is better spent elsewhere then fair enough.

If it is a Centre Back it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a loan it could be a free agent remeber O’Riordan is only here until January and if that doesn’t get extended we have a tom Lang just not long back from injury and will he fully upto speed? so having 3/4 is a big help and none of this Makeshift pish either

Have just seen that Blasé Riley-Snow has taken us to court over a reduction to wages we owed him and the judge has awarded him them just over £2.6k

Can only imagine the conversation at the club leading up to that:

"He's shite"

"Have you tried paying him less?"

I hear the club's solicitor passed him a cheque, but it took him three goes to get it under control. 

As my Granny always used to say, "if a footballer's YouTube showreel is comprised entirely of clips from Spanish leisure centres, he's probably not good enough for the Scottish Championship".

Apparently we deducted the money from his wages unlawfully and because the club did not respond the judge has taken the decision to award him the money instead of holding a court case.
