English midfielder Danny Devine is now in on trial, just left Carlisle United and previously played for Gary at Bradford City.

The lad's 25 in September and has apparently played 58 league games in his career, according to Wiki.

Regards.

We don't need a centre mid.

This is fairly uninspiring and somewhat concerning news.

😆Aye, fair fucks! 

TBF he is an attacking CM the other guy is a Defensive CM, we already have Byrne, McGhee and Robertson.

"Devine is a versatile midfielder, with his main position being in the middle.  He has also played at full-back and wing-back."

Might be useful as he covers a few positions though I guess

With money tight for most, which will effect every club in Championship, and season tickets low, I'd go for McGowan as first choice DCM as he can get the ball forward better than the other options. Haven't seen Mulligan as right back but if, as I would expect, he can provide cover there then that should be one area of concern covered. So, a guy that can spread the passes (in my dreams the next Cammy Fraser) and the magical one that can put the ball in the net (the next, without being too ambitious, Kane Hemmings) and I would say we would be more than there (happy to rely on youths for cover) . If we are to spend the budget anywhere these would be my priority. That said we will likely need to allow time for the squad and manager to really figure out how to play within GB's, potentially moving while he really figures out the players strengths and weaknesses, game plan so not expecting an overnight miracle. I'm feeling positive..............but I've been here before. Maybe wait till Jan to figure this all out and splash the cash then if needs must, Nelms will know the difference between getting up or not and I don't think we're going to be up against another Roy McGregor. Keeping hopes in check for moment and not expecting a flying start. I can remember 80-81 where we got 2 points from first 7 games and still got promoted, definitely expecting better than that though

DR with the cutting edge journalism that this country is revered for. Can those cuntos not get anything right?

 

First and foremost, all the best to Jamie Adams and his farm business, maximum respect.

Back to football business, you're absolutely on the money @D'Jaffo regarding the Daily Record and the west coast sports media in general regarding any accurate reporting east of Denny.

For those of us with longer memories, when Claudio Caniggia signed for us in late 2000, James Traynor, then chief football reporter with the Sunday Mail / Daily Record and all that pish did decree, "Why is he here?".

Within a few months of CC33 arriving the ugly sisters/arse cheeks were obviously jealously contesting his signature.

No apologies naturally for the snap below.

Regards

From what I gather, Jamie’s farm does okay. He chose to work on it through the day rather than train with us but would still turn up on match day and body c***s senseless. An all round good guy.

It's a boy coming in on trial, I see no issue with this. I'd be surprised if much comes of it tbh.

FWIW.

Seems fairly shite.

Out of curiosity, do you have the stats for Jay Chapman?

Not anymore as I haven't put the MLS into this new one, but I'll try and get it done this weekend if I get a chance. Been meaning to do it anyway.
