There is a reason Longridge has no club in August, the same reason he was in and out of our starting 11.

I hope it's a one year contract and obviously that he does a job

6 month

McManus is our best striker, he came here cause he wanted to play number 9 after being shunted out wide at Ross County.
 

McKinnon also said he can play anywhere up top including out wide.

'Can' and 'will' are different things. No idea why people seem to think we'll be playing with 1 up top either btw, very clear from pre-season that we'll be playing with 2 strikers and 1 in behind for league games at the very least

Longridge is a great signing, will be interesting to see if he's evidence of some of the Campbell money filtering through or if he's a replacement for Johnston

4231 easily changes into a 433 during games. Longridge and McManus can easily play a bit wider but still get in the 6 yard box. It's not rocket science.

It’s not rocket science but it’s bizarre to play your best striker and most likely goal threat in a position which he has been previously unhappy with.

I’m not opposed to him being up top on his own with the following midfield

Longridge Tidser Connolly

Gomis Telfer

Everyone goes on about Tidser in this number 10 role at Morton when McKinnon came in, would be tempted to try him there rather than his 2 in a diamond, but would swap him and Telfer.

However as McKinnon has been playing two up front would expect

Longridge Tidser Gomis Telfer

Either as that flat four from left to right or the diamond with Gomis at the base and Longridge at the tip.

Regardless of the above, wouldn’t be playing McManus out wide.

Longridge is good on the ball with zero end product. Will do ok in league one.

McKinnon saying we're in talks with Hearts over a young player who plays on the left hand side of the park. Will almost certainly be Lewis Moore

Played with us last season, did ok.  Thought our team played better without him, reason he was in and out all the time.

3 goals and 5 assists 18 starts 11 subs app.

Longridge should be a good signing, we were crying out for width at the weekend and that's something he should be able to offer.

What's happening with the takeover? Very quiet

I asked the question when I was down earlier. The DD is underway; I don't think we'll hear anything more until everything is complete. Once that happens I'm sure there will be press conferences, photocalls, statements of intent etc. Assuming all goes well of course.

No idea of the likely timescale. I guess the two signings make it slightly less critical that the new owner gets the keys before the transfer window closes.

I have to say, I always liked him better up top, although we didnt have room for wingers when he was here. He was murder in the deeper role he got shoehorned into. Get him wide or up top.
