To me, a 38yo coach is now going to be taking a place in an already small squad.

It just feels completely pointless.

It makes perfect sense to keep him registered as a player.He's not taking anyones place it just means that he is available if required..

I refuse to believe Steve Brown won't be counting him as a player if CD decides in a few weeks he needs another attacker.

But I don’t think anyone (maybe you are but I don’t think so?) is wanting an additional striker. Registering him won’t effect the budget and is surely just a ‘just in case,’ sort of signing? Won’t effect the make up of our squad? 

I think we're shy of a genuine, effective, lone striker, and another wide pacey option, if we're playing this 3 up front thing.

MacLean would've been perfect four years ago.

My worry is neither Conway or Olaofe are useful, and we end up with those two, and MacLean, taking up squad places.

Random has gone from......" It's all good. The players were fighting to make the shape work. What an encouraging sign. Could easily have won with 10 men after barely having a pre-season." 

To........." Oh noes! The squad is minescule, unbalanced and the signing policy is sending out a surrender message to the rest of the league!!"

 

Pray for Mrs RandomGuy.

I for one am absolutely delighted if Macca pulls on the shirt again. How about a few pics from my personal collection...

If I see that "get it up ye" arm once again 😍

Aye right, as if there really is a Mrs RandomGuy.

Random's dad had already named his mum in the Mrs position, so Random wasn't allowed to strengthen the squad.

Tommy spent a whole year trying to get the  average age of the squad down. Davidson about to reverse  it all with his first (non loan) 2 signings. The mind boggles... 

 

id play Kane over Maclean... has his faults yes but brings way more energy and threat. Watching what I did of Maclean last season you can tell he has lost his agility and another yard of pace

 Don’t think we’ll see much of Maclean but it surely makes sense to register him as a player? We weren’t even able to till the bench yesterday which wouldn’t have been an issue if Maclean had been available to us. 
 
I doubt it’ll cost the club anything and if it doesn’t infringe on his ability to be a coach then I’m all for it. No harm in having extra competition for places and it can only help the young strikers at the club to have a master of the dark arts training with them every day.

I don’t quite understand that post. He is ‘going to take a place in an already small squad’? That wording makes it sound like MacLean’s inclusion would make the squad even smaller. Surely the fact we have a small squad is exactly why we need extra numbers?

So that's pretty much all our forwards not up to it according to you now. Your meltdowns last season were great but this is a whole new level

It's Macca Monday!
 
 
When's it being announced?
I'm hoping Callum registers himself as emergency wing back cover as well.

I think we'll be using a smaller squad, and i worry Brown will count MacLean as one of them.

If a situation arises later on where a player becomes available and we want him, it might be refused because we have enough players.

Surely the majority of teams will be running with smaller sqauds this year. 

I was half expecting McLean to have a squad number when they were released last week.!
