Just De Vita swap for me.

                   Mutch

Doyle  B'nan  Hall  Dixon

            Miller  Gomis         

    Todd  L'ridge  De Vita

              McManus 

The lack of pace in that side is a bit scary for me. All very slow and one paced apart from mcmanus.

Absolutely respect your thoughts on this however we aren't anywhere near the level of our own premiership teams let alone those down south. As for identifying with players, a few aside, we didn't hold on to them long enough for that and the ones we did were still given shit from some of our support (I remember hearing some of the shouts at Sibbald which were totally out of order). 
As a previous poster had stated the funding would have stopped from the SFA when we lost out 'elite' status. 
The MSG are the core problem at the club the repetitive theme from their disastrous spell is really unforgiving. Fans of any other club would have run these owners out of town. 


The funding would not have disappeared without elite status. It would have been lower however. If you tick all the boxes for the level under elite level you get 80k in SFA grants

Not sure of their 0 to 60 times, and you'll not let us loan anybody in because you don't like them either.

If he could avoid silly yellow cards and needless injuries there could be a place for McLean in that lineup.

He looked good when he came on at Airdrie

McLean should barely even make our bench now. He’s looked *passable* in around 60 minutes of football for us, first half v ayr in his debut and 30 mins v airdrie.

I'm still no fan of these season long loan deals that arent really season long loan deals.  Very difficult to plan ahead when you are coming towards the end of a window and you still dont know whats happening with one of your most important players. To me in future we should be ensuring that if we're signing these the clause is that the loan can only be cancelled at the agreement of all 3 parties.  I very much doubt anyone will offer County anything for McManus anyway if they can get him for heehaw in a few months.

Agree ! But the club holding his contract call the shots which is fair enough. We were in the situation where it was a take it or leave it.

These agreements should a be a last resort. Got a feeling he will be on his way though - hope I am wrong.

McCarthy played most of his games for Hamilton in the first division .  They knocked back a number of enquires regarding him before they ever got promoted. If that has been us he would've been away after less than a season.

Yep as 16/17 yr old as championship player, 60 odd games versus 40 odd top league. The big difference is they got promoted and he prove himself as a 18/19 yr old  in the top league that meant Celtic(I'd say also Rangers but the McGeadyiness made it only Celtic) would sign him.

As a 16/17 yr old in the championship Hamilton would've got  what we have in the past, the key is promotion and him showing he can do it with step up and having him tied up 

As for Longridge, makes the squad stronger. We have options on the bench other than the same subs week in week out who were never really challenging the starting 11

SPFL team of the week..

I thought Durnan was pretty solid tbh. I don't think there is much talent or ability between either of our centre halves, McCracken now would give both a run for their money

Based on what?

He’s been here for over a year, can you remember one meaningful contribution he’s made? He was part of a team that got relegated last year, and even then barely scraped in the first team. Has scored 0 goals in 17 games, didn’t get played by McKinnon and M and M don’t seem to rate him. What makes you think he’s anything but not good enough?
