The St. Mirren FC 2021/22 thread

Another good signing. Good day for the club, three players with experience at this level. Defender, midfielder, attacker.
Bit weird this having our squad so well prepared and we are still in the first week of June.

Apparently Tanser plays better as a wing back which I guess suits Jim’s desire to play 3-5-2.

Plenty options for the back line now:

Tait - Fraser - McCarthy - Shaughnessy - Tanser

Fraser - McCarthy - Shaughnessy - Dunne - Tanser

Throw Finlayson into that mixer as well and I reckon the defence is now done.

We also have a setup that could also play 4 at the back. Tanser is better as a wing back than full back so even if playing a 4, you could put Tait and Fraser at full back and play any combination of the four centre halves.

That's four of Jim's intended six signings so two left....based on no-one leaving (which is unlikely to be honest).

I reckon there's still a holding mid and a centre forward to come.

In all seriousness this is a major worry for me. After the last cup win in 2014 everyone seemed to spend the Summer patting themselves on the back, and we ended up selling May and scrambling around to replace him to the point the best option was Brian Graham on loan. Long term it forced "glory hunter" fans away as we had to shitfest that entire season.

Its still early but I'm fearful we're all about to witness a club stagnating due to success again. Kiltie is a top 6 signing for any club, in terms of now and in the future.

Clearly I'm no Fergie - If we ever win two cups in a season, RG, I'll be quite happy to "stagnate" for the next season or two.
