Even then it was a decent first 6 months at St Mirren, he'd vanished by the second half, dropped out the team and St Mirren didn't make any great moves to keep him. 
 
League 1 might be his level. 

We've had this already. He's fine at Championship level.

We have, an he's absolutely not fine at championship level. He had a good 6 months at championship level with St Mirren, from January onwards he scored 2 league goals for them, in a team that was winning the championship. His career since then has seen that record continue. He's got more on his record suggesting that he's not good enough for championship level, than he does pointing the other way. 

For Dunfermline he scored one goal over a whole season...

He's played roughly 120 games at Championship level and scored 37 goals. Averages about a goal every 4 games. It's not prolific (which no one is arguing) but it also doesn't scream "He isn't good enough". I don't know what the average strike-rate is for strikers at that level but I'd imagine 1 in 4 is about average at worst. He's fine at Championship level regardless of how shite he was when he was with Dunfermline.

I'd take 3 loan signings in Ewan Henderson from Celtic, Glen Middleton from Rangers and Dapo Mebude from Rangers. All very talented youngsters who we could offer game time to develop. January's usually riddled with duds so loan signings for me would probably be a better option. Henderson and Middleton were on loan in the Premiership last season but struggled for game time so albeit it would be a big stretch to drop down to league 1 but why not if they are going to get first team football?

We'll see, I highly doubt it. His goalscoring record(especially recently) could be negated if he was contributing with regards to link up but that's not happening.

Henderson and Middleton? This has to be a troll

Listen I'm well aware those two are far fetched but why not, they are both youngsters who we could give game time to improve. Otherwise they'll just sit not getting game time for the rest of the season.

If last January's transfer window is anything to go by and given what has already been said by the management team in terms of ins and outs I think we are in for an underwhelming month. 

With that pair in charge it'll be more than a month I'm afraid.

You could say exactly the same for Declan McManus. His scoring record at championship level is honking.

Some respect for the championship top scorer please.

In all seriousness, Declan McManus though has been very adequate for us as a second striker, hopefully supporting a main goalscorer. While he might not be scoring goals he's still doing something to impact the game. Gavin Reilly? If he ain't scoring he isn't contributing.

To me they're both ok championship strikers and no more. McManus puts a shift in but his goal stats are honking and his assists stats are nothing special. Reilly probably has a slightly better scoring record having at least made double figures twice but that's nowt special in the championship.  Probably worth a shot in league one but who knows.

Gavin Reilly released by Carlisle by mutual consent. Worth taking a look at I'd say.

Not a player I rated at all but he could possibly be our best striker if signed really says it all in how I rate our current strikers

More chance of getting Ozil or Dele Ali on loan

Mcmanus has 6 goals and 4 assists for Dunfermline this season in 10 games. Mcmanus is miles better than Gavin Reilly. Reilly for me is more on Bob Mchugh's level but even then that's probably doing Mchugh a disservice.

Just to remind everyone that Queens fans are nearly always wrong about the ability of players and not to treat their opinions seriously   They rate Paul burns ffs.

Just to remind everyone that Pars fans completely discredit the ability of players if they were shite for them.

His previous goalscoring record  at championship level is dreadfully poor though.
