The Falkirk team that pumped United 6-1 was definitely 3-5-2 and was probably peak Hartley

As you say I think once Jakubiak broke in to the team Longridge dropped back behind the strikers which was never quite as effective. 

Although Kidd turned in some of his best performances in midfield, in reality he was probably carried by the rest of that team. It shows you don't need to have much height in the middle of the park as long as you have a #baller like Sibbald in there and a Tommy Tackle type bodying everything that moves.

Taiwo was subbed off at half time when the score was 2 1 and Welsh came on.

Whilst we certainly need another striker, I don't think it should be Todorov, he's too much like Dowds for me. We need a penalty box poacher type.

I wonder if Dowds is only still here until we secure someone else? Signing another big striker might suggest along those lines

That did cross my mind, but then Rennie's been on about him being like a new signing.

Got to remember that Dowds only can play for us or Arbroath this season in Scotland. Two clubs a season rule.

This is beginning to feel like we are done for the day. Worrying. 

We can also sign players on loan up until the end of Feb. Not ideal when we have to get a settled side and hopefully start winning games now.

You can appeal that rule mind you. Same with the signing back a player you've sold a la John Clarke.

I see queen's park have signed Connor McBride on loan.  Never saw much in him when he was at the academy. Was always very lightweight . Rudden moves to Dundee on loan whilst jakubiak moves the other way on loan. Strange one from thistles point of view.  Letting one of the best strikers in the league go for hee haw and bringing in a striker who spends all his days injured.

Aye, ah ken, but Arbroath thought he was brilliant so I'd imagine they'd want him back.

Kerr mcinroy is linked with a loan to ayr, meaning he'll play for 3 clubs. So not entirely sure what the actual rule is?

Possibly getting away with it as it was the Celtic colts he played with as opposed to the Celtic first team.

Was it not just Celtics youth team he played for in the cup though? That won't count. Lot of loan players still play dev team games for their parent  clubs midweek too but that doesn't prevent them playing for two others.

Colts teams in the challenge cup don’t count towards the 2 club rule I believe. Sure when we signed Ruth he played for Aberdeen while on loan to us.

I suspect Thistle have been clever here. It’s likely they’ve been given a loan fee from Dundee for Rudden, which would make sense as if they sold him, they’d owe Rangers money as they have a sell on fee. Could be clever business by Thistle

Nesbitt shows flashes of flair but he's nowhere near as good as Telfer especially in the middle of the park. He's even more of a shitebag than Telfer which really is an achievement in itself. Whenever we have a battle on our hands and he's in the middle of the park we're a man down. Telfer can run a game and should actually be playing further up the park than he has been this year. 

Telfer - 22 league games 3 goals and 5 assists
Nesbitt 22 league games 2 goals and 3 assists

Morrison- 18 matches 8 goals 4 assists

He may lack a bit of consistency but selling him would be crazy, IMO.
