...if St Mirren want to finally achieve the holy grail of a top 6 position...

I hate to piss on your parade here, but some of us have watched St Mirren achieve such a goal on many occasions. In fact one of those seasons saw Killie relegated (along with Morton.. :D) while several other seasons were when Killie never even graced the top league.

Late move for Thomas Robert suggested.

Sounds more like his agent panicking. He's been touted to everyone it seems, yet nobody has bitten.

Ric, that mob weren’t even in the top *two* flights for a while. A total diddy level that our club have never sunk to.

Kiltie is a bottom 6 player at best hence why I personally wouldn’t want him back and why I wasn’t, nor was anyone else, bothered in the slightest when he left the club. St Mirren fans were at the wind up at the time thinking they had taken one of our best players.

I want my club to aim higher than bottom 6 (not necessarily saying we’ll do that this season) and if St Mirren want to finally achieve the holy grail of a top 6 position they will need better players than Kiltie.

The above isn’t a dig at Kiltie really either, being a Premiership footballer definitely puts him in the top “insert number here” % of Scottish players. I would 100% swap lifes with him if I could for the chance to do what he does. 

Kiltie is a vastly superior player to who you currently have as the supposedly creative players. McKenzie? Polworth? Are you seriously suggesting Kiltie wouldnt be ahead of them? 

The only issue with him is his fitness, which would make it a bit of a gamble, but he's much better quality than what you have. Definitely an asset in your forthcoming relegation battle, if you sign him.

I am 100% saying I wouldn’t necessarily expect Kiltie to be in front of either of those two. He couldn’t get a game in the midfield before McKenzie when he was here the first time.

The reality is that when everyone is fit and available, Kiltie is a sub. Pretty much guaranteed to come on in most games, but still a sub.

If he's unhappy with that, then fair enough. But I'd still like to keep him.

Quietest window ever?

I'm sure we'll get mentioned with some out of contract players, and to be fair there's normally a few decent ones out there round about this time.

Otherwise, I'm interested to see what Robinson does about Shaughnessy. He has been our strongest player at times, some of that is down to ability, but equally some of it will be down to the consistent run in the team. If he's going to be in and out, then I'd worry he'll lose sharpness.
