I think I'm in a minority in both of these views but

McGuffie isn't a world beater but he created a few goals last year and would be a passable starter if we're struggling to shift bodies going out the door. I'd rather have him as an option of the bench but would be fine with him wide in a midfield 4 or 5 if need be.

Morrison to me is 10x more effective playing as a central striker where he can get his head down and drive right at defenders. He presses well from the front and is a total pest against some of the bigger slower centre backs we come up against. I'd be fine with him as a starter up top with a partner in a 4-4-2.

I agree mcguffie would be fine as a squad player.

Not impressed with any of our signings - have we learned nothing - If you cannot get decent players at least sign big strong athletes. 

Gary Oliver, no idea who he is, but a striker who hasn't scored more than 10 in a season - He'll be 27  at the start of the season - he's just managed that amount of career goals!

McGinn is a risk, hunners of clubs, lots of mutual consents, had a bad injury in the past - could be well past it.

Mackie = crock

You're kidding eh?

I can use understand reservations about Oliver and Mackie but not about McGinn.

Let’s be honest here, we are about to go into our 4th season as a League one club, we don’t have loads of money and are still suffering from Holts signing debacle. We aren’t going to sign many players, if any that make us fans go wow.

What we have done in our favour however is put a decent management team in place. We just have to hope that McGlynn and Smith can get more out of the type of players that circulate between clubs at this level.

Your ability to be an utterly miserable b*****d never ceases to amaze me

Mcginn played 41 games for Killie last season . Mackie played under mcglynn last season so I'm sure he'd know if he was a crock or not. Oliver we'll just need to wait and see .

PJ Morrison, Henderson and McGinn are excellent signings at this level. Remember McGinn's just went and won the league with Killie whilst having to also carry Blair Alston on his shoulders every game.

Donaldson, Mackie and Oliver will be more than acceptable at this level none of them are exciting signings on their own but players McGlynn knows well and obviously trusts.

I doubt McGlynn will get many more permanent signings so hopefully they are the right players as we need a lot more energy in the team now. Savoury would do nicely.

Quality at this level more often than not tends to come from loans, so hopefully McGlynn can come up trumps with them nearer the start of the season.

Absolutely correct.

I would guess that his next job will be the loan market plus trying to shift some of the contracted players from last year.

Shaping up nicely.

Oliver guaranteed to score in at least 4 games next season.

I always thought Oliver had decent games against us, a wee annoying fuker usually.

We have signed worserer strikers recently

What I am wondering about is outgoings, if theres going to be any. 

I'm not sure McCann will be going as that would leave us with 1 LB.  Can't help but wonder if he could be played further forward, his offence is better than his defence.

His link-up play wasn't the worst but his goals stats are appalling. If you get a goalscorer next to him he might do ok but I wouldn't want to be relying on him to score goals. Unless it's against Dunfermline, and likely us now!

It's a sort of Bob McHugh feel to it type of signing.

I think we'd be crazy to get rid of McCann. I'm sure Airdrie, for one, would be delighted to take him back.

McCann reminds me a bit of Tommy Robson- popular with fans but fundamentally just not good enough defensively.

Personally I’d look to move him on- we’re not exactly overloaded with players who will attract interest so it would make sense to free up wages to me.

Well we need a left back and and.... If McCann was to be offered, surely   Falkirk would want a bit of coin for him,  unless there could be can agreement to take on the remaining 2 years of his contract on same terms,  could Airdrie afford that deal though, thought Leon was on a decent contract..

McGinn is a very good signing for this level, Mackie I don't know enough about, he can't be any worse than McCann ( I hope), Oliver is a bit meh though. I actually thought he was older than he is, seems to have been around for ages. That said when your other striker is Jaime Wilson then he'll look like a world beater.
