You 100% aren't.

Aye, TWs comments today seem to confirm theres no signings coming in.

Probably reading it wrong, but it's as if hes not allowed to sign anyone until more players sold.

Unreal.

They've created a shitstorm by building the hype themselves, TW probably just trying his usual PR to strong arm Brown into releasing more funds by mentioning May. I genuinely dont think they understand quite what they've done, especially if we struggle in the group while May signs for Dundee.

Scott Burns, who is reliable, especially with Aberdeen stories, reporting Dundee will sign May on a permanent deal. 

Steve Brown refusing to move further on the deal, assuming that's because we have 22 players and hes absolutely dense as f**k. 

If/when Dundee sign May on a permanent deal, he'll have to do a hell of a lot to do to recover that situation. May might be an expensive failure, but sometimes you have to gamble on that because the alternative is driving a wedge between the supporters and club. I suppose hes too stubborn to believe hes wrong though.

I thought 24 was quoted as the magic number...Embarrassing!

We either have real money issues or being tight as f**k.  I don't think there is a middle ground here.

Honestly if we were expecting a 15 goal striker or a striker with potential to get that for less than £3K a week then we are living in cuckoo land

I'm all for prudence but....

I'm not even sure it makes financial sense to not sign him.

Big fee and big wages, but you'll sell an absolute f**k tonne of merchandise (if you could be arsed making it, I suppose) as fans still idolise him, while theres definitely people who'd respond to an ambitious signing by getting season tickets/coming to games to see how he gets on. The alternative is that hes fucked off a section of our support who'll now refuse to go.

Hes so fucking obsessed with money its unreal. It's a prophecy that his unwillingness to dip into the "safety net" is going to be main reason we actually need to use that money.

Considering the managers record with strikers, I'd be stunned if second choice behind May wasnt an absolute fucking huddy.

Another season utterly reliant on midfielders scoring goals for us. What could go wrong?

So yesterday were lining up a deal which would probably have been the most costly in the club's history and today we can't sign anybody until others are moved on !!?? 😂 I have a lot of time for Tommy but he spouts utter shite at times.

The money chat is boring. I'm sure we could find a quote from Tommy every season about lack of funds. Saying he needs to get rid of players though 😂 fucking hell Broon you tight arse.

This is what's annoying me the most. 

Does this mean, if nobody wants McMillan for instance, we wont be signing another defender?

This is now past the stage of concern for me. 13 senior players fit for our opening game of the season and he’s in the press saying we need to ship a couple before we can bring in any? Absolutely ludicrous and if thinks it’s the best way to force Browns hand, he’s alienating large sections of the support which will get to a beyond reparable state IMO. We need an announcement to change this feeling. Clark or Kennedy contract extension would be a good start.

Brown is playing a dangerous game.

We have the funds there, use them now or the fans will not be standing by the chairman much longer.

This on literally the first day of the competitive season. :lol: 

I was considering making a mad dash after work to go now, but this has absolutely fucking scunnered me.

I'll see how I feel on Sunday too. Might just wait until the league starts up to go.

MOH as main striker this season it is then.

 

 

I hope not. He is a winger. He cannot hold up the ball and is hopeless in the air 2 skills required by a striker

That's only part of it. Wright hasn't mentioned May since his initial burst of enthusiasm about us trying to get him, McInnes said there had been no movement since the Monday when he had his chat with May and I think Wright's demeanour in his interview on Friday night was quite telling. Most of the interview can be explained away with frustration at the defeat, manner of the goals conceded, luck and lack of a new left back/defensive option in the squad but I didn't like the last 20 seconds or so of the interview. 'Hopefully we have the scope to bring someone else in'. Surely 'the scope' shouldn't really be in question - it's just the club's ability to get one of his targets in that position over the line. The 'scope' comment could be down to us holding off to see how much May takes out of the remaining budget, but I'm starting to fear a 2014 style 'no signings' announcement from him and the chairman over the next few days.

 

I fucking hate being right all the time.

I know we've said it all before but Saints PR is absolutely fucking terrible. The eve of the start of the new season and the club have managed to create a fog of negativity around McDiarmid Park that only we could manage.  No promotional tweets, hardly any videos on social media, no creativity and no buzz.

I'm fairly sure even if we managed to sign bloody Stevie May and big Danzell it would appear on the footnote of an article about Liam Craig getting injured or something.

Maybe I'm being harsh but they make absolutely no effort to get the fans interested. 

Couldn’t agree more. The club do not have a clue when it comes to this. Ross Cunningham laid some really good foundations but those who followed him in the role have undone all his good work. 

Look at what Motherwell do. The difference it can make having someone who knows what they’re doing is huge.

100% agree. Given the positivity in their thread and in the media about them, you'd never believe they finished below us in the league. You reap what you sow.
