Sibbald was hounded out the club, Telfer gets away with murder.

Sibbald took some (completely unjustified) stick because of his declared intention to leave the club but to say he was hounded out is just wrong.

Got it big from some sections of the support, and big from a certain board member. Maybe forced rather than “ hounded”

Still 4 loans available as well so plenty of room for manoeuvre. Two centre midfielders and a striker to finish please Mr Rennie. Craig's obviously one of the heavily rumoured centre midfielders but it would be nice to get another younger loan signing with a bit of legs in the middle of the park. If Mutch is nearly back fully fit I don't think we need another goalkeeper, can just emergency loan one in if either gets injured.

One of the biggest mistakes we made was not enforcing the clause for another year. Crazy stuff again by Lang and co.

Politics aside, can’t think of one player signed since Sibbald left that could lace his boots.

Paul Watson saying he had a coffee with Rennie and liked him so things moved after that.

Can see why recruitment’s been pish then. Imagine turning up to Costa and having Holt talk your ear off. Ew.

Why keep a player that indicated he doesn't want to stay?  If he was forced to stay, do you really think his heart would be in it and he would give 100% week in and week out? I get that as a professional he should, he'd also want to impress potential suitors - however, as we've seen before, a demoralised player without passion to play for the club is a waste of a Jersey.

It was time for Sibbald to flee the nest. He had his trial at Luton which would have brought us some money in but that didn't work out so I think after all he'd done the club were right to let him go. 

He's made a decent career for himself but nothing like the career we all expected from him given how talented he was as a youngster.

As soon as the window closed he'd have been back playing as normal for another season.  If he'd downed tools he'd have struggled to get any sort of decent move in the next summer window.  We should've activated the clause and  kept him. He'd have moped for a couple of weeks but as I say come the transfer window closing he'd have been fine.

Something only Sibbald can answer

He watched countless others move and obviously he wanted to also.

He didn't go to livvy for big bucks

If I am being cynical it coincided with all the shit happening on the park from an outsider looking in Miller and Kerr have had good moves and made some good money (only speculating) and they put the seed in his head which coincided with individuals downing tools.  Long story short seed planted,, didnt want to be there wanted away.
