Hoping Martin will be back to full fitness for the start of the season. Him and Dow, any chance of that?

I think Murray is a loss tbh. I like Watson but I’d have kept Murray over him given the choice. Big Gaz looked promising though and I’m happy for that to become the partnership next season.

We’ve known Turner was leaving since he went on loan. Grant needs to bring in a couple of more attack-minded midfielders.

He never made an impact to show he should stay but Cammy Gill has been at EEP for a long time now. Hope he gets a regular gig and can show his ability.

Think I’m the only Pars fan that saw very little in Whittaker. Looked half finished to me. Hopefully just back-up for Wilson.

Hope so glad to see Martin get another chance hope he can kick on although we have decent options at LB but his ability to play right across the back 4 is useful as cover.

Is that the case aye? Sounds like the Turner situation has been over for a while, but I’d be surprised if Euan Murray hadn’t been offered a new contract.

Also, Kyle Turner will win the Champions League one day and we’ll rue the day we let him leave.

Key word was “have” - both players did receive offers, but there are none on the table now. We did offer both Turner and Murray new deals, but both said they had no interest in signing. We accepted that a while ago and moved on. Murray’s decision was a large part of the decision to bring in Gaspuitis. Murray’s agreed to sign for another club and has told us that, so why would we claim to have an offer on the table just now?

Happy with Edwards signing a 2 year deal.

Edwards’ passing can be dodgy but think there is a very good player in there.

He's certainly improved since coming in. 

I actually forgot we have the boy McDonald in the squad as well. We're covered fairly well defensively if Martin becomes available again.

I'm with you. Aside from a handful of games I thought he was pretty ineffective.

Edwards has his flaws and certainly has a poor game in him. But he’s only just turned 21 and I think Lewis Martin looked like he was struggling a lot more than Edwards does, when he was 21. If the coaching staff see something in him (and they clearly do) then we have to trust that.

Will be interesting to see if Martin and Whittaker stay. Would suspect Martin maybe has a 6 month deal and Whittaker will get another year - unless it’s maybe a 2 year deal if he’s part of the management/coaching team.

After that, it will be interesting to see who we recruit. Midfield is an obvious area, where we need at 2/3 more bodies, depending on whether we plan go with a 2 or a 3 in the middle of the park. Obviously we need a keeper now too. Would expect this to be a new number 1.

That’s what I assumed was the case from your first post. How do you know all this?

Edwards is far from the finished article but he’s undoubtedly improved and that’s what you’re looking for in younger players. Now, he has to kick on again and aim to be the best left back in the Championship.

Defence is nearly there IMO. I like the look of Comrie-Watson-Gaz-Edwards with MacDonald and potentially Martin providing cover.

New keeper (or two?) and couple of central midfielders should be the next aim.

I imagine Owain will be on a fair wage and should be used as back-up, predominantly utilised as a goalkeeper coach. Would like to see us prioritise signing a goalkeeper and a couple midfielders.

McManus returning to us has been mentioned a few times in our thread. Fairly sure it will turn out to be a pretty baseless rumour, isn't he contracted through until the end of next season?

He is but I'd imagine he'll be one of our higher earners and IMO, won't be in our starting lineup, if Falkirk are happy to take the wage I'd imagine we'll be happy to oblige.

We need wide players.

We do but squad has bigger holes that require more immediate attention IMO.

Thomas and Dow (if fit) are pretty decent options. I suppose McCann and O’Hara could cover if needed. I’d think we’ll probably end up with a young winger from the Premiership on loan.

Just a couple of league and cup games to speak of. Hasn’t looked great in those games but he’s young and really inexperienced, never know what a decent run of games at senior level could do for him.
