Frizzell leaves with our good wishes, but no remorse from me.  As for Ally Roy, apart from a goal at Falkirk he was mediocre and his signing would be a panic measure.
Everyone seems to be overlooking the raft (longship ?) of Scandinavian players who are due to arrive.


Like Erling Haaland’s cousin, Albert Braut Tjaaland?

Bring him home!

15 goals in 112 senior appearances says it all.

I wonder in all the departures if there might be a Kevin Nisbet in our midst. That is a player whom we've had who looks like a complete diddy but a few years later is scoring for Scotland and has refusals for multi-million pound bids. Nominations?

Only one who really fits that criteria is Robert Jones.

Don’t think Frizzell looked like a complete diddy with us though.  Also don’t think he’ll set the heather alight at Airdie.

You make a good point about Nisbet, Wilf, but by the lad's own admission his attitude was terrible at the time he was with us.  Young Frizzell has had two spells with us, so for example did Chris Kane.  Do I think he will turn out like Kane ?  In a word, no.

Think that is harsh really. He didn't blow us away but contributed plenty to the team throughout the season. Better examples would be Daniel Church or Ruaridh Langan.

If they're as good as Bjorn Skjelbred we'll be okay.

Hrienn Hringsson (aka Turbo) as well. What a player he was.

We all remember Burt doing the Stuart Armstrong, but I’m still trying to work out how Nisbet missed this.

I genuinely think Roy would be a useful signing. I always thought he had something about him. When he played for us previously we were at a higher level and I still thought he had something to offer. I’d consider him a fairly decent upgrade on any of our strikers or wingers from last season.

I think he’d be useful, you could look at a lot of folks goals/appearance record before they came to us and some of them have been brilliant. Jim Lister being prime example

Knocking back an actual contract to go on trial is a bold move. I suspect he could find himself in a spot of bother if the trial doesn't go well.

Anyone heard where he's off to?

Wilsons agent must be one of the best around if he reckons he can get a full time gig.  Good luck to him but he rarely produced for us.  Thought he would be lucky to get another part time deal with us!

I’ve heard it’s Falkirk.

I think that’s being very kind tbh. He’s a hard worker who hassles defenders and drags them around but his decision making lets him down 90% of the time. He scored a few important goals for us but I wouldn’t class him as a natural finisher. He’s the kind of guy I’d like to keep around as backup but I certainly wouldn’t want him leading the line for us next season. 

With some better coaching and a more creative midfield he could be a decent player at this level but for large parts of last season I thought he looked like a guy who was out his depth in League 1.

I posted this about Wilson yesterday so I’m fairly astounded to read today that he’s turned us down for what is effectively a trial with Falkirk. If I’m being honest I really expected him to leave us and head to a team in the Highland League.

Didn't an Airdrie fan enquire about him yesterday too? I think he is the kinda guy who in a team in League 2 who create a few chances would score a few but will always effectively be found out at any higher level. Fine as a squad player but not someone to be relied upon at this level. Certainly don't think he will make it at a FT club.
