So literally it is a story from a guy in a pub then?

Probably best not to state things like that as fact in case people start to question whether you're just talking shite or not. 

I'm sure most people know the answer to that question already. 

Looks like Kevin Holt has indeed gone back to QoS.  Exactly the type of player we need at LB but after he got hounded out of the club by "supporters" it's no surprise he's gone somewhere he's not getting pelters every week.

Youd probably be surprised at the lack of top flight teams who'd be interested

I really, really wouldn't.

He acts like he's ITK on here when the reality is probably that he spends a lot of time reading club forums and social media. 

Giving him too much credit there IMO.

I don’t think Random is far off with that at all. Graeme Shinnie was one of our highest earners when he left for Aberdeen (I’d guess between £1000-1500 at that time). It was reported his wages were trebled upon joining Aberdeen so it’s quite possible he was on upwards of 4 grand, and that was only his first Aberdeen contract. Given that May came up from down south I don’t think 5k a week will be far off.

FFS, don't you start as well. 

Imagine for talking sake Shinnie was on £1000 a week at ICT. If his wages increased at Aberdeen by 270% it would be reported as trebled, so that would have him on £2700 per week, not over 4 grand. 

See how easy it is to be miles out?

Stevie May might well be on £5k+ but stating it as fact on the back of a pub story is ridiculous, so less of the sticking up for Boredom please.

Hartley encouraged everyone to have a go and push up the park in every game. Holt however played negative passes and almost always returned the ball to Bain.

We were all very used to attacking, positive plays so when he made those passes it really stood out. I'll admit even I boo'd him once or twice.

He was a good player. Wasn't setting the world on fire but he wasn't as bad as what we have had since. 

As I said before good signing for them.

Holt was an utter liability defensively. The flak he got was entirely justified. Out of his depth in the Premiership.

Rubbish. :-) he did alright compared the majority of the team. We got lucky with Ralph but he did decent going forward and wasnt afraid to get stuck in.
However I'm sure whoever our next right midfielder is will rip him a new one this up coming season

Aye, he was perfectly ok going forward, but being a fullback and part of our defence it's a fundamental part of his job to be competent at basic defensive duties. That aspect of his game was completely woeful. The difference with Jon was night and day in that regard. I'm not too bothered if my LB isn't creating a goal every other game, or scoring 10 per season, but what no team can afford is a defensive liability that flogs one every other week. His attributes further up the pitch didn't come remotely close to making up for his ineptitude in our defensive third.

Every other week... very good.

You did remember what players he was playing along side?
Gonna have to agree to disagree.

However no point going on about the past where we have now found our level.
Be an eventful summer with new players coming in on our charge back to the top league

Aye, players who didn't flog goals at anything like the rate he did.

Kevin Holt got abuse way over the top of what was deserved.

Suggesting he was personally at fault for a goal every second game is just complete and utter nonsense which proves exactly the point of my first sentence.

I Think thats a bit harsh to be honest. Yes Holt was not a great player but I wouldn't say he was an utter liability. I would prefer Ralph to him tho.

The problem with Holt was that the abuse he got from the stands clearly got to him and you could see him getting frustrated whenever he'd make a mistake and it would affect the rest of his performance. That terrible pass he made that Kris Doolan latched onto and scored from in a midweek game being the standout.

I liked Holty and agree the morons in our support latched onto him as an easy target, that goal against Hamilton was a cracker and I hold no ill feelings against him.

I would be saying ‘oh dear’ too if I’d just been made a complete c**t off, as you have been.

Kevin Holt did not deserve the abuse he got and neither does Cammy.

Oh dear again. Me and Dee Man are best buds and you have no idea what you are talking about. You are a very angry man, go and steal your wife’s season ticket.

When men were men!

If there was a bar brawl between that lot and a typical Scottish Championship of today my money would be on the lads with the perms.
