The St. Mirren FC 2020/21 Top Four/Six Party Thread

Recommended Posts

Poor statement by Saints hierarchy there to match the ridiculous furore already caused by this. Should have wished him well, thanked him and moved on. Good move for Magennis if he did want to move to Hibs then who can blame him, no need to throw him under the bus like that. Paul McGinn would have been in the same boat in January.
We’ve got a transfer fee for a player who became a star while out injured and would’ve likely moved on next summer or January anyway. Hopefully some of the money can be put towards strengthening the defence & the rest put towards making up for the shortfall of no crowds this season.

That five-year contract is interesting, though, especially if there's a sell-on clause

I would be really surprised if there wasnt.

Its really the only way Hibs can afford to buy young Scottish talent and if he shines and moves on then we all benefit.

p.s. In a related vein, Buddies and Hibs fans knew that John McGinn was a player, I always enjoy reposting this just for the shits and giggles.........

Gut feel or something going on?

Yeah, agreed. No doubt you're in a better position to command bigger fees for players. That McGinn sale was our biggest ever transfer fee. I'm 100% comfortable with the arrangement, at least until we actually get our fucking act together as a football club.

And yes, Tom English is ridiculous. I wonder if he was watching last night.

As you are fairly well accurate this is a worry.

The board statement is an utter car crash of lies, Kyle never asked to leave. The lack of transparency is tragic. It seems professional football comes as a secondary issue to the Kibble mob who seem to be calling the shots.

Are the club waiting for Tommy Wright to spend his notice with the Saintees (sometime next month).

Massively kicking off on social media from friends and family members of Kyle.

 

Even by our standards this is one massive clusterfuck which could have been so easily avoided

A wee board statement would help here.

Seemingly not.

This shows that demanding a statement for each and every matter is not the way to go. Especially if written by our board in a manner like that. In future the board should be praised for radio silence.
Losing Goodwin would be a terrible outcome to this whole saga.

Disappointing from Magennis but seems to be the way with footballers now: a bid comes in which the club refuses, you say you want to go and the club is left with no option. 

Nursed back to fitness by us once again. Least he could have done was see out his contract until the end of the season. 

Cheerio.

What pisses me off is that I can handle being shite on the park. We've been shite on and off, mostly on, for large stretches of my life. That's just a game. But I hate our club being rubbish off the field: that's people's lives and jobs and reputations. Communication is easy. Not being dicks is easy. So how do we manage to foul this up time and again?

I was so happy when football came back. It was a shot of normality that I really needed. But we keep finding ways to completely f**k it up.

People close to the boy saying it's categorically untrue.

I have no issue if Magennis said he wanted to leave for Hibs. Bigger club, more money, flying in the league. What player wouldn't want to make that move?

That statement.  Jesus.  He’s joined Hibs lads.  Hibs.  He’s not took a plane to Syria and joined ISIS.

Very strange. Why would the club just make that up? Also, who wouldn't have wanted to leave perennial strugglers to a club doing really well, for more money?

Well they would. Engineering a move away the minute you're back from a serious injury is not a good look.

Let's see if Magennis sues us for libel....

I read that too, but there must have been a point when he thought, 5 year deal, (hibs might get 2 out of him) double my wages, and said yes. Couldn't see the club forcing him.
