Our top goalscorer/best player of the season so far/only competent midfielder really does need to pull his socks up...

It says more about the rest than it does Murray tbh.

He's been comfortably our best player this season though. It's obvious he's improved even if he is playing alongside dross. I just find it strange that of all the shite we have this season, Murray is being criticised: he's last one who should be receiving it this season.

Holt's been bang average since his return. 


Several posters assured us that he was an up-grade on Jordan Marshall. Personally, I could never understand the apathy towards Jordan - a player who seldom ever played a bad game for us and who constantly got forward ahead of the ball and gave us another attacking outlet wide left.

Don’t get me wrong Holt is as good a replacement as we were going to get on our budget and I think he will do well for us but he is not getting forward much and with our lack of genuine width on the left we could do with him pushing forward when circumstances permit.

What a depressing couple of performances and results over the weekend. :(

I'm not sure when we started training in Glasgow but under Connolly we were down here and obviously took a lot of players from the north of England. Lets not forget there wasn't a transfer market back then and we had our fair share of dross back then as well.


You will be paying more but dunno if there'd be too much in it. Imagine overall wages our players are taking home with their part time job and football would be more than the average FT player in this league outside the Dundee teams.

Hamilton average wage not around 38k a year or something?

I'd guess most of our players could get gigs full time if they wanted or it suited them but we've got guys mainly in their late twenties. Full time football at the lower level is for the younger guys still trying to make their way in the game or older professionals dropping down.

Yeah I don't doubt there isn't hundreds of difference but I do doubt we pay less than PT sides.

I can't imagine we'd attract any players if that was the case. Eg. If Arbroath/Alloa are paying £300pw* PT and we're paying £200pw* FT then surely every player is going to go for the PT option as they will be earning more money but would also be able to top up their wage by working as well. I wouldn't be committing to a FT contract when I could make more money for less hours, that's for sure.

* Random figures.

Billy managed alot of young local players when he was at Maxwelltown Thistle, and a few were recommended to senior teams by him.

Mentioned to 2 people at the club about the boy McKenzie at Nithsdale who is banging in goals for fun .

Sean McKenzie is nowhere near good enough for this level. He’s also a complete nutter as well.

Don't know about nutters, but we sign players who are nowhere near good enough for this level .

I have no idea if he's good enough or not - but he's playing in the SoS League so probably not - but I was surprised to see on his Twitter that he's banged in 14 in their last 5 competitive games. Some record

Think Queens will be above Arbroath , Alloa and maybe just Morton due to their junior blue membership numbers.

We've always been weird about publishing these figures.

Not sure why.  

We could use the figures to get more sold like what the trust did.

Was really hoping for a new signing to give the squad and fans a lift  confidence must be very low but it looks like AJ has used all his budget..
