In the unlikely event of them beating Clyde and QoS and marginally less unlikely event of us winning our tie, where the hell are Broomhill playing after their split? Are they still out of Alloa? 

Edit : suppose the potential for another Dumfries away day on a Saturday (assuming away fans allowed by then etc etc) isn't too bad. 

Are Broomhill BSC ?

Are Thistle the only team in the division that put highlights behind a paywall? 

No, Ayr do too. 
 

Although it’s currently free although you do need to sign up and log in.  In all honesty they will need to remain free as the service is so bad, nobody would pay for it.

shame really as we used to have a decent highlights package on YouTube.

From what I've since read, the sports club part weren't happy about not having a ground in Glasgow and their players having no path to the first team so they set up a new BSC and are now in the 9th tier of the pyramid and playing in Springburn (not quite Broomhill but at least in Glasgow). 

The team in the Lowland league have rebranded as Broomhill FC and are still playing out of Alloa.

Cheers - the clubs seem to  like to change their names in the lowland league

Graham Dorrans getting linked....

Centre mid is our most stacked position and he wouldnt be cheap.

A very good player on his day but its a no from me.

Probably already have enough midfielders. Good player but genuinely don’t think he stood out a great deal in any the games he played vs us when at Dundee a while back. Probably demand a big wage too.

“He’s got a good presence, good size, he’s athletic, he comes for the ball and he’s a good communicator. He’s got everything to go to the very top but there are still things that he needs to learn.

“He will gain that with experience. He’s a good shot-stopper, kicks well and I can see a really bright future for the boy.”

The Albion Rovers manager is a fan, so that’s something. At least we’ve got the goalkeeper situation sorted out now.

Thought it was supposed to be a senior keeper McCall had spoken about?

Don’t think he ever specifically said it would be a senior keeper. Just that he had one lined up but we’d have to wait a while (presumably until Hearts knew exactly what their keeper situation was going to be).

Harry Stone signs on loan.

Young keeper from Hearts, was on loan at Albion Rovers last season. 

Cracking signing. This guy will go places

When it was going to be a loan goalie I was sure it was going to be a young guy, he certainly seems highly rated. I can see him and Sneddon getting 2 league cup games each. 

Also I just checked the SPFL rules and the increased number of loans brought in last season doesn't seem to have been reduced (I'm sure SLJ will correct me if wrong) so we can have up to 6 domestic loans - as well as unlimited from non Scottish clubs-including up to 4 from one club. Would be expecting at least one from Govan.

Hopefully Kai Kennedy.

Thanks. I hope you're right. McCall must have identified and scouted him as possible recruit a while ago.

I'd have been happy to have Kieran Wright back but Sevco must have other plans for him.

Stengthening the defence must be the priority now.

I thought it could be Conor Hazard returning on loan. Lennon have him a new deal so he'd probably be too expensive.

Cheers.

Whats he like? Good shot stopper? Commanding in the box? Good distribution?

Dont know anything about the guy other than he's decent on FM so any extra info more than appreciated.

Or possibly Stephen Kelly. McCall signed him on loan for Ayr a couple of months before he replaced Caldwell. 

He spent last year playing regularly at Ross County, would be shocked if they then loaned him to a team recently promoted to the Championship. Would imagine he'll go to another Premiership team, or maybe a League One/Two team down south if he goes on loan again.
