I’d like to see that too, but we were stupid enough to give him the two year deal on insane money. He’ll be banking on that income to pay bills and a mortgage, it’s not that easy for him to just walk away from that. It’s not like he’s a Jack Rodwell who has already earned millions and is just being greedy.
If I was Loy I’d sit in the stands and take the money.
 



I agree if i was Loy and i was injured i would sit in the stands and take the money. Its sad to say but we probably in our heads know we would be doing the same.

Does he not work for C&G ? Im sure they wont be handing out a small wage either.?

Heard that he is getting fit for the start of the season but only time will tell on that one i suppose.

Article from today's Sunday Post. Little bit out of date given the news about Bobby Barr yesterday, but Duffy appears to confirm that the SeaGal is away.

Edit: Not sure if this means Boris, Beany and Brennan are away too?

The only players I would be looking to keep now are Carsy and maybe Brennan.

If Hutton sorts his injury out over the summer I wouldn't mind seeing him for another year either I suppose.

Then I remember he’s a pretty pathetic wee guy who thinks he’s far better than he actually is.

He really doesn't. Bobby's well aware of his level, which is why he ends up fighting with fans of the club he's playing for. Fans expect him to cross in Andy Robertson-esque balls every week and if he could do that he wouldn't have been playing league 1. Bobby knows that and is quite honest about his level IMO. I haven't seen any "billy big baws" type stuff from him.

Anyway, I heard last year when Duffy came in that he felt the squad were overpaid. It's become clear that he was happy to have some of them sign on this season for reduced wages, the reduced wages have clearly not been acceptable for just about all of them. That said, I hope we keep Carswell. He seems similar to Jazza in that he enjoys playing for us and he seems a well liked guy, the fact he's been our best defensive mid for two years and current Player of the Year means he should be a priority IMO. Happy for the rest to be new, I think we need to let Duffy do his thing before we start questioning what he's doing.

I see from the Clyde thread that Chris Johnston has rolled up at Broadwood, and Tom Lang has full-time offers - Jesus !!

Ourselves, Morton and Airdrie have been linked with Lang.

He must have improved because he was rotten with us and struggled to get near a Stranraer team in league 1 less than 2 years ago before ending up at Clyde.

They have also signed Tony "Bone" Wallace.

Did he play CH with you guy’s?
He struggled at full back with us initially but since Lennon put him into Central defence he has been outstanding.

I always thought Lang had something about him. For a young guy he played in the Championship for us with absolutely no fear. Compare that to Aidan Wilson who looked absolutely rattled after 5 minutes on the pitch for us. Inexperience was obviously an issue but I would’ve been quite happy for him to stay as a relatively cheap and young back up player - especially since Aitken loved signing old / injury prone CBs.

He’s a model too so the sex appeal would’ve tripled season ticket sales.

In all seriousness... I'm not close to panic mode just yet. Duffy has plenty of time to get the players he needs in and I'm sure he has a good few in mind.

I can absolutely believe that the squad over the last year or 2 have been overpaid as it seems like an Aitken thing to do.

Respect to Duffy for sorting that out which should help the club in the long run financially.

Aitken using club funds as an ego boost / Willy extension does not surprise me in the slightest.

Especially such a Dyer Willie.

how long into the close season and we haven't  had a favourite strip discussion : ') 

for some light relief the new AIK away strip borrows alot from the sons.

Only question is why it took Danny so long to play him in his natural position knowing his background.

Look how good Ranks was in his natural midfield role- was played at LB a couple of times and was poor.

lang is and always has been a CB and struggled at times at RB as it’s alien to all the coaching he’s had since childhood. He did it because he was asked to and like most young and keen footballers he wanted first team inclusion.

The stats on goals conceded while he and Rumsby were in partnership are impressive and only 1 goal conceded in 4 play off matches.
