Tbf to Davidson and St Johnstone they were victims of their own success in that their cup wins meant they got plundered for their best players. And obviously weren't able to replace them with similar quality. Bit like when we lost Vaulks and replaced him with Rankin. Not even in the same ball park. 

The worst thing about replacing Vaulks with Rankin is that he couldn’t get a game ahead of players who were behind Vaulks in the pecking order. Any signing was going to weaken the team but signing someone worse than what we already had was dreadful business.

My understanding is that Kelly’s owner employes the players as employees of his conservatory company and pays them a decent salary that way. That’s why they can afford players such as Austin, Tidser, Cardle etc.

Selling “conservatories”

Thomson leaves Kelty, maybe the Kelty budget isn’t as big as we think! 

Heard a rumour of QPR. Which would make sense as Michael beale meant to be going there

If the club got shafted by Clarke EPOS.... can any one tell me why they are still prominent on the clubs website ?

 

I would imagine it’s one of two things……an oversight. People no longer connected with the club in any way still had a web presence for a very long time.

Or given the speculation around the less than upstanding reputation our current sponsor enjoys, the club is simply ensuring that they do not break their side of the contractual agreement even though he allegedly has. It would give him zero wriggle room if it ended up with lawyers.

Well that's all the players out of contract in Scotland now, should be a raft of signings tomorrow. I want a Mcglynn checklist no later than 8am.

Where Does It Say That?

It was on the Stranraer Twitter however they have now deleted all of the tweets concerning the friendlies.

Wants to manage full time, he's mentioned it a fair few times to the Kelty squad. Doing the right thing leaving when his stock is high.

That's certainly the kind, positive take on it.

It smacks to me of Billy Big Baws, a man with a guid conceit o' himsel'. A bit like Yogi Hughes: He's good, just not as good as he thinks he is.

Time will tell if he picks up anything elsewhere.

You do wonder if there's an underlying issue at kelty. That's now two managers that have basically moved on from a club that looks like it's on its way up.

Two ex Rangers players who think way above their station as managers. Ferguson( hahahaha) and Thomson are all about the Rainjurs.

He seems to have left without something lined up though. He’s been ruled out of the Dundee job now as well! 
 

Hopefully it’s him thinking they can’t compete in a league 1 and he’s jumped ship.

Possibly off to QPR as Gerrard old assistant due to take over there.
