Zero agendas from me. But personally don’t feel we ever get the full story from Tommy when it comes to transfer dealings


Sorry I didn’t mean that as an accusation. We all have our beliefs and agendas when it comes to something we are passionate about.

Don’t have a quote to the link. But that story with RT from Tommy is damning towards Brown and the club. It really does feel like this is make or break in terms of Wright even wanting to stay at the club

Yup. I cant see him staying beyond this season regardless of where we end up.

I'll not say anymore though before I get rounded on again as some form of doom mongerer who's over reacting. I'm clearly making it all up.

Irony is he never sees that the reason we’re in this position is he’s completely blown the budget on busted flushes. Yes we have a small squad but it’s a well paid one for a club our size and we’ve pushed the boat out a lot over the last few years to get him players he’s wanted. 

No doubt the flood gates will open now in terms of signings but that interview is last days of Rome stuff.

Surely at least some of the Kennedy money will be set aside for signing at least one player😏

Makes you wonder whether hes forced to overpay for players he trusts because theres zero alternatives given to him...

Honestly would die for Tommy Wright. Everything he says, right or wrong, I just love him. Absolute shagger.

Tommy coming out swinging.

Clear disharmony in the building with the wee wifey from Killie upsetting our lord and Saviour Sir Thomas by not sanctioning further budget.

To me it sounds like Kennedy was sold against his wishes.

As in, club asked him his opinion on what to do, he told them it would be best to keep him, then he got sold anyway. But that's just an opinion and based on nothing more.

18 outfield players, and no signings allowed.

Let that sink in.

In any normal job he would be disciplined for that. I can I see a “by mutual consent” coming shortly.

Something will have to give. No way that atmosphere can continue. It will affect players who are already struggling.

We simply don't know. I'd be surprised if there wasn't some acceptance that Kennedy wouldn't be fully committed and it may have been the best of a bad bunch of outcomes. Maybe Tommy wasnt included in that conclusion..

There is a lot made of the manager's recent signing record but how much of that comes back to the club? Are they delivering the players he really wants?

Folk can talk about players being well paid but our budget is still in the sort of range where the manager has to take a punt on folk (e.g. he can't go and sign someone that will guarantee him 15 goals because they've proven they can do it) so of course not every signing is going to work out. It doesn't for top managers at big clubs with millions to spend, so it isn't going to for a manager that hasn't been sanctioned to spend a few once in 7 years in charge. 

He's said today we've missed out on a lot of players but what it turns out (from his quotes) that means is we haven't even made offers to his targets. That's why he's talking about pulling rabbits out of the hat as he's being expected to come up with names when the guys he wanted have all been signed by clubs quicker off the mark. 

That's assuming the manager is painting an accurate picture of how things are going down. Whatever the truth though, it's not great, is it?

What’s most important just now is trying to get 3 points tomorrow which would temporarily take us 9 points clear. We’ve been in dire places before, last transfer window a prime example. Fingers crossed this is resolved quickly
