Think he's going to Partick

Christ. Not much of an upgrade on McKenna apart from his pens. 

Amazing to think that queen's park have been promoted despite winning less games in the league  than our dross this season.

Not having that at all. Came to us as a centre back and spend 90% of his time as a solid full back. 

There was nothing solid about him. I don’t care what position he’s meant to play he’s an awful footballer and a pretend hard man.

What made him awful? I'm curious.

He was by no means a stand out but he was a regular in our best team for a decade. We've had nobody better than him in his position since.

I don't see him being a right back for us  in this league that's for sure. If we're going to be playing some decent football we'll need a full back that can get forward and cross a ball.  As a centreback it depends who he's alongside.

His complete lack of ability perhaps. I’d love someone to point out his strengths and not mention penalties or ‘giving 100%’

Absolutely fucking not. A shocking footballer. 

Not having this. Albeit he was a limited full back, but part of a defence that conceded the same amount to goals as Rangers and Hibs in the 2015/2016 season where we finished above the latter. ‘Shocking’ is Brad McKay or Ben Hall in League One.

he consistently played in a side which lost only 4 games in the whole season in the toughest championship or second tier in scottish football history. I went to nearly every game that season and saw him absolutely burst a gut and compete weekly with brilliant players.

your post(s) is yet another deluded one where our fans haven't accepted where we are and the type of player and mix of player we need to get out of this league.  we've had noone with his heart since the likes of he and sibbald and vaulks left.

Ok so far we’ve had penalties, ‘bursting a gut’ and baw twanging a ***. Any advances of this guys strengths??

We also need to get away from ‘better than what we currently have’ as a an indication of whether a player is good or not. I’d be confident we could field an 11 from here that would be better than what we currently have, that doesn’t make us good enough.

I see the Ayr fans are devastated at the news…(cue ‘but but but…)

Muirhead was our leader when Hartleys team post January was quite good. He was absolutely fantastic then.

Him and Tommy T exemplified everything we are currently not in those months.

Hes not great, but he is significantly better than what we have.

Also, he dickpunched a ginger ***

He’s not only better than what we have he would be miles better than what we currently have. 
 

He was part of a very good defence in a very good side, if your going to argue against that then fair enough it’s your opinion!

Its not the fact he was awful, it's more the fact he was a stand out in a team that was sh*t, in other words he was about the only competent one there and the only one that seemed to give a sh*te.

Absolutely no idea where you got that from. He won his fair share of headers, tackles and kept his distribution from the back simple (I.e fed the ball into midfield for a Taiwo/Vaulks/Kerry or hit the channels effectively). That is literally all you need from your defenders at this level.

Eh? He was part of one of the strongest and settled defences we've had in the last 15 years!
