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. 

 

Hopefully the fans give the new signings and the contracted players a fair chance to prove themselves under the new management.

For the last few season we have either built them up or condemned them before a ball is kicked.

I’m sure we can all guarantee to give them the usual 20 mins at least….

Wilson, Sneddon and Holt jnr will never be good enough no matter who the manager is. They are just poor footballers. Then you've got the the rest of the wage thieves, who according to the now departed Dixon " chucked the league in September"

We'll let you have him only if you take Brad McKay aswell. 

 

Seriously you never know,  McCabe  played with McKay at Dunfermline, rookie managers tend to go down the old teammate route....

Well we have now signed 6 players with more to come. All will be starters. Very few, if any,  of the contracted players deserve a chance or to be at the club after last season and I would predict most will know that and will bugger off.

If McGlynn can move on even half of them he should get a stand named after him.

League winning signing.

We still need a fair few players before I start getting them vibes, he however is an excellent player who will set the standards for the rest of the team. Thus hopefully helping us breed a winning culture. Need someone with decent legs in around him so he can concentrate on dictating the game.

I think I will let John McGlynn decide that. I was a fan of McCann at Airdrie but he has been fucking hopeless in a blue jersey. 

Completely disagree.

He wasn't played properly or often enough to make an impact IMO. Despite his stature he was still our best defensive LB and easily our best attacking threat down the left flank.

Well we will soon find out. IMO he will be gone or sat on the bench all season.

Aye, Sneddon's easily the worst left back I've never seen!

Not according to the stats sadly. Was good for losing (on average) a goal every game he played and it was telling he was dropped for McGuffie to play there instead of him. I’d love him to be the Airdrie player we saw but we didn’t at all sadly.

Had a few beers to chill out after a busy day, so I might get shot down for this. But I can't help wondering if the legs could be Seb Ross? 

He got very little gametime last year with only six starts, but in terms of doing the donkey work such as running about and putting in tackles I thought he was decent. He's already on the books so is at least worth looking at in the preseason games if not the cup ties.

He didn't get a fair shot last season but from the little we saw of him he doesn't look to have any sort of end product. I wouldn't be adverse to having him as a squad player but I wouldn't want to count on him as a starter.

Take at least another 5/6 beers………..sleep it off and in the morning you’ll be editing the above post.

first 4 words are the giveaway. 

Too lightweight, too ineffective, too similar to too many others, too feckin meh.  We need shot of all these soft as shit non-entities we've endured for far too long.   Harsh but true. Oot ye go.

I had genuinely forgotten that Seb Ross was still a thing. He must be one of, if not the single biggest nothings ever to represent the club. The token signing that Holt allowed Diddy Sheerin to make. Came on a few times, run about to zero effect. The idea that he could become a regular on the back of that is laughable.
