To be honest I would have let Flynn and Tait go as well. Still hoping we get a bid for Ethan. Delighted Urminsky is being retained. Would love to see how good this lad is. 

Tait would have definitely been at risk if he hadn't signed his 1 year extension just before Goodwin departed.

Flynn won't ever be anything now than a last 15-20 minute player most weeks but he's 100% reliable at doing that so definitely OK with him staying.

McCarthy going is a bit of a disappointment and I'm very surprised at us outwardly announcing Gogic as a player we've offered a deal to considering he's not actually our player.

Fairly happy with that. Hope McAllister gets a decent club, although his time at Partick would suggest he might find it tough. There's a player in there though and on his day he's a good player to watch. 

Would've liked to have kept McCarthy, this time last had he left I'd have expected him to step up a level but he's had a stop start season. Maybe Aberdeen or the likes of Motherwell or Hibs might take a punt on him.

Hibs have or are about to free him( Gogic).

Really glad Flynn’s getting another year. I’m guessing Robinson prefers Dunne to McCarthy so he might not have been guaranteed playing time and he’s been poor for most of this season anyway. Gogic is a huge upgrade on Power so fingers crossed he’ll choose to stay.

McCarthy is a weird one. Excellent last year then he started this season fairly ropey. He picked up a nasty injury against Livi at home just before Christmas and never got anywhere near his form of last season. I don’t really know who would take a punt on him after this season. I can only think he could rock up at Aberdeen or in League Two down south.

Gogic would be a brilliant coup if we could get the deal done, but I can’t see it happening.

Fairly happy McAllister is away. Never rated him in his first stint with us and was surprised he got a move to the Championship. He did virtually nothing down there, due to injury, and when he came back I was less than enthused, despite the club and fans making a big song and dance about it. He’s done almost nothing since returning, I can probably count the number of good games he’s had on one hand over the last 3 years. He’s still only 23, but as his loan at Thistle showed, I’m not sure he’s even a Championship player. He may well be turning up at an Airdrie etc next season.

Power was decent the first handful of games, but hasn’t really done much to impress overall. Coming up on 35, I’d have been ok to keep him as a squad player. No chance I’d have kept him as one of our preferred centre midfielders so not overly fussed that he’s gone.

I wouldn’t waste my time trying to convince Jones to come back. He was pish.

Fair to say then that Robinson's "heads turned", "pathetic defending" rant after 2-4 Motherwell was likely aimed at McCarthy? I reckon he'll be unveiled at Pittodrie pretty soon. 

Power also started that game so he could have been referring to him too. Alnwick was suspended.

I don’t think you can pinpoint that on McCarthy, that was the week Dunne was dropped and he was linked with Aberdeen. It could’ve been any one of them. It was a daft comment regardless. McCarthy was linked with teams at the start of the season and got dropped by Goodwin. Probably overshadowed at the time by all the nonsense about McGrath. Alnwick and McCarthy both moving on through their choice doesn’t suggest Robinson had an issue with either of them. 1 or 2 centre backs required as replacements especially if Robinson is to maintain 3 at the back as Dunne can not be relied on.

Yeah I get that but we don't announce which other out of contract players from other clubs we're targeting.

Hopefully on top of players coming in, we are in the position to offer a few of the 2023 players an extension.

Henderson, Shaughnessy, Reid, Kiltie and Greive should be priorities.

Agree with all those, but Greive would be top of the list. He's basically here on work experience and is almost certainly on absolute buttons. He could be going to the World Cup. Got to get him on a better deal asap.

We absolutely need to get Kiltie on a new deal, brilliant with the ball at his fit and is always looking to get on the front foot and drive, brilliant player.

GK - Alnwick = Carson
CB - McCarthy = Magloire
RWB - Millar = Norman
CDM - Power = Baccus
CDM - Gogić = Gogić
CM - Ronan = O'Hara
RW - McAllister = Ayunga
LW - Jones =
ST - Jack =

Reece McAleer looked poor against Arbroath and not sure about Tumilty. We had our bid knocked back for Cameron Norman. 

Gogic would be great to have back the rest not so sure. 

I would also happily accept decent bids for Ethan and Dunne.

Appreciate he has just been released by a club that finished below us in the league but is Dylan McGeouch worth a punt?

Not offering up any opinions or anything. That's just who I've seen us linked with in last several weeks.
