The St. Mirren FC 2019/20 Thread

Recommended Posts

Good luck to the lad. It's always sad to see what looks like a career being ended early. Here's hoping there is a route within the game to help him get sorted - like when Barry Lavety went to Bath to get treatment on his back injury.

He failed to mention that Aberdeen have been trying unsuccessfully for two years to treat what is effectively a chronic condition that merits him retiring from football.

Why didn’t he and his agent discuss medical insurance when he signed a contract with us when he’d already been told his condition was chronic. 

 

They more than likely did but he may not be covered for a pre-existing medical situation.

Seems a fair enough solution in that the player will get money up front that he can choose to invest in the required medical procedure and St Mirren save money on income tax and NI Contributions.

Good luck to the lad with what he decides to do next.

Yeah, on face of it, it's not been a comfortable process for any party.

This suits everyone by looks of things.

Wonder what Harry Davies is up to. We'll need at least 2 centre backs, 2 centre forwards and at least 2 wingers.

We aren't short on centre mids. A lot depends on Tansey but by the sounds of it he is gubbed.

We nearly have the spine of a decent team. Everyone is on the hunt for a 15 goal a season striker but Mullen has shown he can score goals.
Looks like what i heard back then was possibly true.

Shame for the guy, hopefully he can get fit and get his career back on track.

Will Stephen McGinn get back into the team once he is fit?

It’s a terrible shame for the lad, but it’s seems that he’s been diagnosed with a chronic injury and he’s unable to accept the diagnosis. 

If St Mirren were to come out and say this then they would f**k up his chances of him finding a gig with another club. 

If he does find another club then exactly the same scenario will be be the inevitable outcome.

He should probably consider the coaching option now. Never good to hear of a career cut short, but if that is the reality, it is best all round that he moves on.

No signings today?

Workdays would be much more exciting if I was confident we were bringing in a new quality left back or free scoring striker.

We're definitely not a Monday team.

The Kyle McAllister rumours are gathering pace.

Some even suggesting he's coming back on a permanent deal 😮

Hope there is some truth it!!

The idea of McAllister and Durmus on opposite wings sounds great

Kyle McAllister coming home on a permanent deal would be as absolutely glorious as it is unexpected. 

Most of us hoped we'd get him on loan for another 6 months or a season but if he's coming back full time, we're a left back and striker away from actually looking decent on paper. 

AND ACTUALLY HAVING A STABLE SQUAD!!!

Would add another centre half to that mix

Popescu please

One of my friends talks to Popescu through Instagram and apparently the clubs are still in contact and Popescu said to him he would love to come back if a deal can be done. He definitely didn’t say there was no chance of him coming back.

Although did his manager not suffer a heart attack while he was playing? Maybe the new manager will have him in his plans.

Might not be a popular opinion (in fact it definitely won't be) but weighing up the merits of the three centre halves now here, I'm not too sure Popescu is what we need right at this moment. 

Gary Mac brings a lot of experience to the table and on happy with either Sean McLoughlin or Baird playing beside him. Baird has a bit of a reputation though for not playing too well alongside guys younger than him who can't talk him through games. I definitely feel if one more centre half was to arrive, it would be someone a bit older and no nonsense.

Of course part of this is probably me just reconciling in my head that Popescu isn't coming back so not going to feel let down when he isn't. Reality is that If he travelled over today, I'd give him a coalie back from the airport to Ralston.

Mackenzie is always getting injured and Baird is squad player standard.

For these reasons, a new centre half would be good.

I fully agree. I still feel we need another centre half and centre forward option on top of the first choices for RW and LB that are coming. 

If we get those right, and Kyle would be a top start, we'll actually have a pretty decent squad on paper.
