I've noticed the Partick / Rangers connection too; unsure of the real reason behind this.

You'd think we'd have some sort of relationship with Rangers through Ross Wilson...

For his previous (ties and love) for the club, totally agree. McCall being an ex player will be significant, they look after their own springs to mind.

You sure he is? Pretty sure he's still under contract at Raith. He played for them in the friendly last night 

Yeah like Trump said he’s come on as a sub in both our friendlies so far and he’s ran the show both times. He was a bit tired on Tuesday with it being his 3rd game in 5 days.

I expect he’ll be used to model the away top if it gets released tomorrow.

Theres a good 5 or 6 things I'm more concerned about being in the top, before worrying about anything thats on it emoji17.png

A right back, two centre midfielders, a winger and two strikers.

Eh no. The reality is a huge slug of the budget has been taken up by Holt/Sheerin duds. 

Like the tens of thousands that were spent on an unfit and uninterested striker in January?

Why was that money spent at all if there is now nothing in the pot to field a competitive team? You’re looking at at least 2 decent players who could’ve been signed this season instead.

Findlay Malcolm is probably on buttons but that's another wage we're tied into from the second half of last season.

To be fair, the managers given a budget to use as he pleases. Rennie chose to spend that budget on Griffiths not the board. The money we spent on Griffiths was mostly from the B4L monies was it not? From what I gather they run in order to give the club money to spend on players in January which is what happened.

Our issue this season is the contracted players are absolutely honking. If we pay them off that takes a chunk out our budget so we are relying on one of us winning the euromillions tomorrow night or someone being as stupid as Gary Holt in order to take them off our hands. Both of those things are about the same likeliness imo.

McGlynn's said there's room for 1 or 2 more players in the budget and then some loans which means he's got to be very very selective with who he brings in. Probably why we've not made a signing in 3 weeks. Yeats should hopefully be offered a deal and you'd like to think he'd be on a relatively low wage so hopefully the 1 or 2 stretches to 3 and then bolstered by loans later in the window.

The wage Griffiths was rumoured to be on will be higher than probably anything we’ve paid since being in the premier league, so I’d be astonished if the signing didn’t require board approval.
