Surprised we got him. He’ll be better than the 2 lumps of wood we currently have at the back.

Probably means broadfoot is definitely coming. I like baird - think this will be good for him and he'll come back a better player.

Wondered earlier what would happen to Baird with Broadfoot coming in. Hasn't started at all in the league so seems Goodwin doesn't fancy him at the moment.

Bit odd sending him out on loan though considering most of us reckoned we were a man short at the back.

Assuming Kirky signs, Goody clearly considers Bairdy 4th choice behind Broadfoot, Gary Mac and McLoughlin.

 

I like Jack but Goody's right. Those three are definitely better than Baird. Better for him to go get some football at a team he will play every week for.

I like Jack and am surprised he's dropping to Championship level again but yeah, he's not as good as Gary Mac, McLoughlin or indeed, Broadfoot so he'll find game time hard to come by.

January suits all parties, keeps Baird match sharp and if Gary Mac gets injured, I'd imagine we could call him back pretty quickly.

Still shocked at it though.

Put to one side that it's Morton and it's a good move for all involved I'd say.

I think Baird was unlucky not to start against Hibs. McLoughlin was (to me at least) a bit of an unknown quantity. Can't fault McLoughlin he's been excellent, but if Baird had started he might have played well and kept his spot.

Baird will be one of the best defenders in that division. Fast, strong, good in the air. I imagine he'll walk straight into Morton's starting 11.

I noticed Dundee Utd are still playing that clown Connolly. They could've done worse than bring Baird in.

If I ever need cheering up, I just think about Connolly in those playoff games. Rattled barely even began to cover it.

Baird is far superior to Connolly, he'd have stoated into United's first XI.

He looked absolutely done. I was shocked when I checked his age during the second leg and discovered he was still in his twenties!

Is the outrage at Baird going on loan because we should have kept him or because he's gone to Morton? Not that fussed about where he's gone myself, just a wee bit worried that his departure leaves us back to square one on numbers at the back.

Also surprised we don't appear to have found clubs to loan guys like Erhahon or MacPherson to as I can't see them playing a great deal of first team football for us.

Good move don’t give a shit if it’s Morton he’s away on loan to worked out well for Naismith when he went on loan to them and came back a better player for it.

Is the correct call from goody would be struggling to make the bench at times when broadfoot comes in.

Good move for Baird, he's not good enough to be near starting in the top flight, but is fairly solid on his day in the Championship, and it's definitely better for his career to be playing regularly.

You'd imagine we'd be able to recall him if/when Gary MacKenzie picks up a knock.

You can't recall him outwith transfer windows.

They can if both clubs agreed it loan deals can be cancelled at anytime.

Won’t do Bairdy any harm going out on loan to a championship outfit shipping 5 goals in their last outing. He’ll be busy 🤣

Seriously it didn’t do Jason Naismith any harm when he had a 6 month spell down at Greenock.

Baird out on loan is scandalous, unless he requested it himself in order to get games.

As you can probably guess, with my surname, a headline reading  ‘Baird in Morton switch’ has me twitchy. Maybe I should join a Morton fan forum, and ruin it too. You fancy coming along and we can drag it into the gutter? Been a while since our double act totally fcuked up an otherwise perfectly serviceable forum. 😛

No stay...........if we don't sign Kirky tomorrow we'll need someone to blame Poz.

OK, I’ll stay.... (forum groans).... the Baird move is a puzzling one, but we’ll just need to trust Jim on this. Morton fans are getting a player who will do them a turn. No jokes from me about ‘at their level’. Jack Baird will be a good signing for them. Hope it works out for player and club. I am happy to openly admit I like Morton, wish they could get their shit together and join us in the top flight.

Pretty obvious why Baird has went out on loan.

He isn't guaranteed game time, he can return match fit in January if McLaughlin goes back to Hull.

Different scenario to Naismith though which is why some folk are puzzled. Jack has been in our first team since when, 2014? Where as Jason hadn't broke into our first team yet, so much so that the Ton fans didn't rate his chances when he started games for us.
