Did you manage to compile that list without bursting into tears?

I'm looking at that list and having to relive the trauma of having to watch them, Fasan single handedly sealing defeat from the jaws of victory being one of the biggest ones at Ayr and when McKinnon put Dallison up front it was good to see him trying to trouble someone elses defence rather than being one of the biggest problems in ours

Patrick Brough
Prince Buaben
Harry Burgoyne
Tom Dallison
Paul Dixon

Tom Owen-Evans
Paul Paton
Deimantas Petravicius
Zak Rudden
Mark Russell
Ruben Sammut
Nikolay Todorov
Dan Turner
Mark Waddington
Cammy Bell
Gregor Buchanan
Aidan Connolly
Rafa De Vita
Mikey Doyle
Mark Durnan
Callum Ferrie
Morgaro Gomis
Ben Hall
Denny Johnstone
Robbie Leitch
Louis Longridge
Declan McManus

That’s 60 players there which Id say at least 50 of them have been failures. Genuinely some skill to get player recruitment so horribly wrong over such a period of time and under 4 different managers but even managed it.

“Loans are always a bit cheaper and sometimes you can get a player of a higher quality for a lower price, so to speak.”

A Mcracken quote yet we've made two loan signings this season. Makes sense us going for another back up keeper on loan but I can't understand why we're not trying to strengthen elsewhere with loans when we have 6 available this season.

I reckon I hated the ones like Paton, Haber, McShane etc more than the random dross from the English lower leagues. These guys had been fine at championship level or above but abysmal for us.

The game will likely be off looking at the forecast.

That will give M&M extra time to practice which of the defenders can hoof 60 yard diagonals the best for the Montrose game.

Don’t think your too far off the mark regarding the game being off. From the latest infection rates in UK & Scotland, and multiple outbreaks at clubs all over, wouldn’t surprise me that this weekend for those games playable may be the last for a few weeks. High chance our FM will put football on hold till the end of February......

When you consider most will have had a signing on fee and a good few got a payoff to terminate their contracts the costs must have been frightening.

Judged on our two loans this season of untried youngsters, they obviously will be a bit cheaper, I fukn hope so.

I wouldn't be surprised if McManus was our highest wage last season.

I'd have thought JP would be available again after Motherwell got Kelly on loan but I watched the Fasanesque display of their no2 keeper on Saturday

True (apart from Dennon Lewis who was a complete dick). They were signed by Hartley and it wasn't really their fault, they just simply weren't good enough. The ones who had performed at that level before and simply didn't show up, or couldn't be arsed, pissed me off more.

McShane started off alright when we went on that decent run. Hung around far too long though. Paton came onto a bit of a game once he got his off-field stuff sorted out. 
 

Someone mentioned Waddington who started off well but seemed to fade away. 
 

Haber, Lewis, Dallison and Sammut had no redeeming features.

Wow, must have taken some amount of time to come up with that lot. How did you manage to include Ciaran McKenna and forget The Edge? I can still see that collision in that Morton game that cost the 2nd goal

You seem to delight in misery.

Personally, I see no reason for games to be cancelled unless the participants are infected.

Yeah after that performance I'd imagine he'll be sitting second fiddle to Kelly for the forseeable. We're in desperate need of some energy throughout the team so I'd take a couple of untried youth players as they'll be coming here to prove themselves. Obviously we need to do our homework and get the right type of players on loan instead of panic signing like Deveney but there are youths there capable of improving our team. PJ was a shining example of that, had we not had a permanent keeper in Mutch we'd have all been happy having PJ on loan as our first choice goalkeeper for the season.

No delight just some reality, we’re currently on a tier four lockdown, with infection rates rocketing, can’t see our families and loved ones, we’ve to work from home and only if your front line workers you’ve to go to work, but twenty five or so footballers & staff can meet every day and on match day and not one test. Some things are more important than watching an underperforming team for the last few years.....
