Double Winning St Johnstone FC Thread


Recommended Posts

The worst thing about the links for Rooney to Rotherham and Kerr to Wigan isn't so much the level, but it's the actual clubs that are involved in teh potential deals.

Neither team look like bothering the Premier League any time soon and they don't have a major tradition of selling players on for big money either, and the big money for Saints in players like these is getting a hefty sell on clause and then seeing them sold for a few million after a season or two.

Would much rather deal with someone like Peterborough who could do that, but then those relations may be dead after the whole "we don't do interest free loans" and trying to offer the remnants of Nicky Ajose for Stevie May a few years ago.

If those moves do happen, they would inevitably come with the sinking "Rooney/Kerr signs for Hearts/Hibs/Aberdeen" in a year after neither club really knows how to use them and doesn't build around their strengths

As much as it would pain me to see them go, these guys have given us the impossible. They have given us absolutely everything.

If the right amount of money is tabled for Kerr/Rooney/McCann etc, can we really hold it against them if they want to move on and try something else? They don’t owe Saints anything now.

Is it naive to think that Rooney will be happy to stay with us because he's given a role that perfectly suits him and the grass isn't always greener, or does money overrule all?

When the money on offer could potentially mean that he doesn’t have to work again, once he is done with football, then it does become very difficult to turn it down.

From what I’m seeing we’ve rejected Rotherham’s offer and received no second bid.

If the Kerr to Wigan rumours were serious we’d see it in the papers. Although, I can see us losing him and McCann this window.

A town that doesn't even like football and who have a pie as a mascot, and a town only famous for Barry and Paul Chuckle. I've also been to Rotherham, it is a dive.

Don't do it lads.

Thought this was the start of a rant about us tbh...

Kerr to Wigan was quoted by the record a couple of days ago.

Rooney on Open Goal was saying he wanted to play in the European campaign I’m sure. He also managed to get York City fans on Twitter absolutely seething by saying that he used to have ten pints the night before a match.4A0C309C-6B26-4029-BF71-BB446AEBBF05.png.93bd6401839417f33d8430f372b40067.png

I'd like to think that the potential for European group stage football might be a big draw for these guys to stay at least until the end of the window. If you go to English League One/Championship you can pretty much forget about ever doing that.

But equally the money on offer will be a huge step up and you never know if you'll get that chance again.

We could really do with getting contract extensions for McCart and Rooney at the very least. That ship has probably sailed for Kerr but I'd still hope we were making a pretty massive offer to him with the understanding we won't stand in his way if the money is right.

Signing another right back is surely a bit of a worry? 
 

Or is it the case he is maybe cheap centreback cover in the even we lose on for a period of time?

19 years old would suggest they’re wanting us to give him a bit of experience and we’ll have him for cover.

According to Millwall website

"Muller, adept at centre-back or right-back, captained Millwall's Under 18s side to a memorable FA Youth Cup run in 2019/20, culminating in a Quarter-Final against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

 

The defender has featured on numerous occasions for Gary Rowett's side, including in a Carabao Cup tie against Premier League outfit Burnley in 2020/21"

He's apparently a CB, from what I can find. Rowett saying hes a CB who they played at RB because "he's maybe not physically there yet" to play as a CB.

No idea how you take it. Davidson should know all about him etc., but I kind of hoped signing loan players from Millwall was just a panic thing last Summer due to a lack of time/panic in January when McNamara was recalled. I'm not hugely convinced we should be signing 3/4 loan players every single Summer especially when we won't be getting them after.
