Heard we are sniffing about Liam dick and the boy hetherington from alloa.

I'd take Liam Dick he's a solid enough left back but can't say I remember much of Hetherington from the times we've played against him.

I wouldn't be signing anyone though till our new manager is in post. He should have the final say on what players to sign  from the ones Holt sources. Any other way of doing things would be shambolic.

I agree, the only way anyone should be signed is if the preferred manager has been identified and he has agreed targets.

Talk of new managers, signings etc means nothing to me at the moment. It is second to what is going on at board level. New manager/signings should not deflect from the main thing, we need these c***s gone and should not be giving them a penny until they have.

Well if it is going to be Peter Grant he could have put forward those two players as targets. Our club are all for telling us they'll follow the correct process for the appointment but we never actually do. So wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if we've had Grant lined up for a while. Somebody on the facebook page mentioned they'd heard Grant was coming in as assistant to a young manager. I wouldn't be abject to that.

Hearing those names, this is exactly what I was thinking. Seems to be a few different sources convinced Grant is heading our way so wouldn't be a surprise really.

Any other names kicking about? Rumours always help lift the spirits.

It would appear Holt is doing the hiring and firing and not waiting for the new manager to make any decisions. Players learning their fate over next few days. What I have an issue with is the that if Grant is put in place in whatever capacity(manager or assistant) he is just a yes man for the SD. If that’s the case how are the club going to progress. It’s becomes another Romanov type scenario. #Jobs for the boys

I heard a guy in his mid 50’s from Grangemouth is going to win the Euromillions tomorrow night and spend a chunk of the money chasing Ritchie and Superfan away to f**k from our club.

If that is the case it will become apparent very quickly and the fans really need to withhold the ST money.

They obviously see him fit to make those decision's as he's took them in training and seen them in games but there's no way he should be making the decisions on who stays and who goes. That should solely down to whoever gets the managers role. They should then feed up the chain to Holt what players they are looking for and also have the final say on which exact player comes in. No doubt we'll do it completely backwards and Holt will be recruiting them all.

Judging on the season there shouldn’t be many kept. However we’ll find out soon.

I hope you're Dowds and not Keena. Dowds has a better build for a goalie.
