How long have we talked about the lack of energy and legs in the middle of the park? Is Liam Craig going to provide that at 35?

I wouldn’t want Liam in the centre of the park t be honest but he’s got a good football brain on him and a good leader. Could he do a job as sweeper al La Scott McKenzie circa 02/03 and organise the defence for us?

How many times have we heard that the last few years

Not that many to be honest. It's normally guys from the championship we've been signing and thinking should do ok at league one level. I'd like to think the top flight is a bigger step down to league one.

Alston, McShane, McDaid, Sean Kelly, David McMillan. All absolute guff.

Liam Craig who has just shy of 400 top flight appearances being compared to Heyherington, I’ve read it all now 😂🤦‍♂️
 

Hes 35 but would be a quality signing for League 1. Some folk need to remember where we bloody are just now!

Would Liam Craig be an improvement on Gary Miller? Yes obviously but he’s been in the St Johnstone team regularly and believe they’ve not long lost Craig Bryson to injury so I wouldn’t expect us to sign him unless a coach role is something he is going into along side his role in the PFA.

None of them were getting a regular game for their club at that level accept probably Alston and it's still a strange one that he never worked out with us as he's a regular in the Killie team pushing for promotion these days. They were getting binned as they weren't playing. At least Craig is playing regularly and has proven himself at top level for decent successful clubs.

Killie fans are certainly not particularly impressed with Alston, slow as ever and not physical enough. Similar problems as his year with us.

If FFS are going about leaking like sieve who they are going after then the whole HR team need sacked.

Clyde rightly should be raging at this disrespect and would not blame them in telling Falkirk to F off.

This is not the way to conduct business. You lose credibility and goodwill in any further dealings with clubs knowing our mob are going to blab about it. Can you image how we would feel if it was the other way round ?

Well for what it’s worth today we decided not to pursue DGW any further as irrespective of any other issue Clyde we’re playing hardball and wanted too much cash. We are now focused on getting a new goalkeeper to replace Martin who is simply not good enough . Our next signing will be his replacement .

What we’d do for an Ivo, Yogi type in the defence, Peter Godfrey was another no nonsense player we’re screaming out for…..

I'd go for Godfrey above Burgess. 

He was a super signing at the time.

I don't know how I'd feel about us signing Liam Craig, at his age he's not exactly going to run a game for 90 minutes. Does obviously bring a bit of dig into the middle of the park but absolutely loves a yellow card just like Hetherington with stupid late fouls. 

To me he's far too similar to Hetherington & Miller in that they're all immobile and give away cheap fouls too often. 

Sitting mid in league 3 should be aok for someone still playing in the top league.

He will point fingers at folk and get stuck in, decent with free kicks too.

His 2-3 yard passing with us previously frustrated the life out of me but we are in the 3rd division now and I don't see any similarities at all with Miller or Hetherington

And your source for this? A new keeper is hardly our number one issue…..

It is up there 
Don’t disagree. But there are at least two rather more pressing issues in our defence that should be our priority.
if a keeper precedes that then we have lost clarity of our issues….

What if a keeper becomes available before a defender or midfielder? You just going to tell him to wait until we sign a defender?

Martin is as bad as Hall. Need Mutch back pronto if no new keeper
