I've always thought Curran would be perfect for us tbh, no idea why though.

How times change...

I was worried when I heard he was asking to be released.

I was even more worried when I heard TW saying he wanted "voices in the dressing room", considering the history Curran has in that respect.

It would be the perfect breaking point for this Summers business if hes the only signing we make. The club is that fucking daft theyd do it and then quote how his experience and work rate will help the other strikers and attacking players.

I'm only joking btw. I'd be absolutely astounded and delighted if you were to take him off our hands though.

Give me a break with that, it was over 18 months ago 😂

He looked decent enough at County, but his spells in Tayside so far have been a disaster. Hes just a more experienced Kane.

I dont think even we're daft enough to do that, tbh. 

But then again we tried to loan a player available on a free transfer, and also agreed to sign exactly the type of person we need to come in, before deciding they weren't worth the offer we'd had on the table for a month the moment they agreed to it, so...

Unless he has been on a sunbed every day for 15 years, it wasn't Craig Curran

Tommy loves to bring an ex player back for another spell....John Inglis?

Saints sign Curran. 

On this day in 1989... 

Also, thankfully we have moved on from the type of signing photo that the aforementioned John Inglis probably insisted on...

See Jamie Murphy is available, seems just like what we would do, get him for 6 months, watch him be great then spend all of January trying to resign him only to panic buy someone else at the end of the window

I’d there’s any position we certainly don’t require, it’s a winger.

Gael Bigirimana was our special guest. That’s my official prediction. Isma is unfortunately too tall to fit the description.

I have just worked out who it was; Daniel Sturridge, he wants to team up again with MOH.  :)

Him replacing Callachan in the squad is something I could get behind fully.

Bigi is a talented baller. More of a passer than a driving forward type of player.

What type of centre midfielder are folk hoping for? A Millar/ Morris type who is disciplined in sitting deep and harrying opponents, being comfortable on the ball and retains possession well OR a player who can drive forward with the ball moving us up the pitch, and pick killer passes and get goals, e.g. Armstrong/ Christie etc

Because to be honest, I don't think we really have either just now. Liam Craig is closest to the former out of the current squad and hopefully McCann develops into that role, in terms of the latter I suppose Callachan is one who likes to drive on with the ball but don't see him as providing a killer pass and he still seems a bit erratic.

Did he look like this man?

Okay The person was not Lafferty, Cummings, Maguire. Curran etc etc. Steve and Stan were simply talking to the guy before the game he was himself I recognised his face it could have been anyone to be honest. there was something going on yesterday behind the scenes,  body language shows a lot and SB was talking to a lot of people yesterday before the match especially. he was out in the Stand much earlier than usual, he was talking to Steve Anderson for a while for example, Danny Griffon was involved with a chat with him as was this person I mentioned others as well (Mabey nothing but different) . One players who's body language said all yesterday was Ross Callachan though he stood at the entrance into the Stand from where the players/Directors etc etc enter the stand with a puss like thunder but every member of staff/players not playing just walked past him making no eye contact with him at all?? Mind you I would be fucking livid if I could not get into that squad FFS.

Just my opinion, but I think the last few games suggest we need someone who'll help shield the defence, as too often players are getting free shots against us at the edge of the box. They also need to be able to take the ball from the defence and help us keep possession without thumping it long.

If we could get a striker who's able to get the ball, keep it, and being the wingers into play, then the midfielders wont necessarily be needing to be playing through balls or that.

A more defensive midfielder should allow Muzz to get forward more aswell.

I'll acknowledge the fact players like that are hard to find, especially at our level.
