I think that red kit is very smart, would look better if they tadgers didn’t have their socks all the way up like tights 😂

Same applies though as home strip, I’m far too fat and old to wear one 😢😂

It could be a lot worse 🤣

Agree with this, at the time in the position we were in taking a gamble on a player of Griffiths quality made sense to me and plenty of others on here seemed to agree at that time. Can understand why Rennie wanted him, in hindsight it didn’t pay off but that’s the nature of football. The wages he received (roughly 24k) over what was only a 4 month contract would have made very little difference to our budget in the grand scheme of things. Banging on about it is pointless , It’s a non issue for me. 

The bit that gets me besides paying him a fat wedge did Rennie think he was going to bang them in when the midfield was non existent. Was he relying on Griffiths banging long rangers from near on the half way line every time he got the ball because it must have been his train of thought. Any striker coming in this season is going to have the exact same issue because we do not have the personnel to create enough.

Our midfield will get bodied again this season if it's the triumvirate of Nesbitt, McGuffie, Hetherington in the main. McGinn if he keeps healthy should help but I'm expecting much of the same shitebaggery  as last season when they hit their stride or rather don't.

Never, ever, ever compare the signing of Stainrod to the signing of Griffiths. Never.

God's 1st few games for us were frankly poor but i remember standing on the terrace at Rugby Park screaming CROSS IT CROSS IT,then going or scoring is good as well🙈

Did he not keel over, & get carted off down the Watson St end, in his first game? Can mind thinking "We've signed a crock & will be left with Hughes at CF for weeks!"

Given the talk of limited budget and the fact McGlynn has favoured a 4-2-3-1 so far, the team below might not be a million miles away from how we start the season. Where do we think the following team would finish?                           
                                     PJ

Williamson Henderson Donaldson Mackie 

                 McGinn  Yeates/Hetherington

            Morrison      Oliver       McGuffie

                               Cameron

For me, an upgrade on Williamson, McGuffie and Hetherington (if we don’t sign Yeates) and signing someone like Henderson over Cameron gives us a chance. Surely that’s not inconceivable?

PJ
New Donaldson Henderson Mccann
Yeats McGinn Mackie
Mcguffie New Morrison

The striker needs to be someone who keeps himself in between the posts, too often we put a ball into the box and nobody's there. The right back just has to defend better than Williamson which really isn't a hard stipulation.

Mackie won’t be playing centre mid.

Most likely not but if we only managed another 1 or 2 signings before the start of next week I'd have him in there. He's very comfortable on the ball, would provide a bit of dig in there and keeps Hetherington nowhere near the team.

Hetherington was on the whole an abomination last season but if, and I stress if, he regains some footballing ability I would have no problem with the manager playing him.

As I posted a couple of weeks back new season new start and we really need at least a couple of last year’s failures to discover some form.

Fourth at the very best. Morrison is a liability and liable to spit the dummy, McGuffie and Hetherington 🙄 Oliver I think is one of those that will be a meh player, Williamson is just not the answer at right back he's very poor. I assume you mean Innes Cameron up front, won't get double figures.

If Hetherington's a starter we're going to be in trouble, even against Stranraer all he was good for was giving away cheap fouls.

Yeah I included Innes Cameron as he’s the only name that’s really been mentioned but as I said I’d much rather sign Henderson or someone.

Seems we are on a similar page in regards to Williamson, Hetherington, McGuffie…

What I would say is that 4 good additions turns that team into genuine contenders. Do we stick or twist?

If someone who’s supposed to be winning the ball back and giving to the more attacking players isn’t giving away some fouls in the process were in trouble.

Very carrot coloured...

God that seems so very very red, not like us at all. Think they could have broken it up with white socks but instead we have a huge white carrot to do that.

I don't like it.
