Duffball is co-commentator on BBC Sportsound this afternoon. Maybe he'll throw us a crumb of information if Rob bothers to asks him "how's things going down at The Rock Jim?"  :whistle

They mentioned on Sportsound that Jim Duffy goes on holiday at 2.30pm today, immediately after he clocks off from co-commentator duties. Worrying that another few 'dead' weeks could be lost.

And what's the chances that any form of decision has been reached down at the rock... probably about as much as Rory Loy being handed a contract extension.

Duffy has been very public in saying he's only going to hang around if we have a budget that allows him to challenge for promotion. If he has indeed gone on holiday without confirming if he's staying then it would be in our best interests to turn our attention elsewhere.



What if his holiday was booked before he took the job ??

We had 13 signed for the East Kilbride game - but Loy missed out through injury. Played a few trialists that day too (Beany, Little, Kieran Campbell and Dom McMeekin).
In all the excitement of last night, I almost forgot to express my relief at Grant Adam leaving. It's nothing personal, but I'm really pleased we won't have him between the sticks next season. I had thought Duffy rated him, so had almost resigned myself to us chucking a deal his way - so that's a positive start to the window.



Your well aware of my thoughts on that “goalkeeper”

When he booked the holiday is irrelevant. The issue isn't Duffy going on holiday, It's him confirming whether he's staying or going before he goes away. He may well have done that, he may not have. If the club had any sense they will have set a deadline of this weekend for his decision.

Normally if a manager is under contract you have nothing to worry about but the fact Duffy has been very public about only staying if the budget suits him means we need a quick answer. We can't afford to wait around on him sunning up his solar panel for 2 weeks in Vegas to turn around and tell us he doesn't fancy it upon his return.

FWIW with last night's announcement I'd like to think he's staying. It would be fairly ridiculous if we're allowing him to release players and offer contracts to others if he hasn't confirmed he's going to stay.

Great to see the club reaching out to the local community in a bid to attract youngsters. Should be applauded and they can’t be accused of not at least trying. Hopefully the uptake is decent.

Stevie Aitken on pundit duty at the Raith Queen of the South game on Alba tonight.

Wonder if he'll mention turning Kevin Nisbet into the player he is today...

Edit: Mentioned us having injuries approximately 30 seconds into speaking :lol:

Given some of the convicts we’ve signed, I doubt we’d care either tbh. I certainly wouldn’t.

instead of a fee, Stevie just demanded he be asked "So you're looking to get back into management yourself, are you Stevie?" at some point.
