I'm not in favour of Durmus leaving in this window because he is still a very useful player for us. Sure Mason has sneaked in front of him, but any injury to him (or Tait, meaning Mason goes to LB) then who will fill that gap? Connolly and McAllister are our only other options and seeing as one is already in the starting lineup and the other can't seem to manage 90 minutes it's leaving us short when we don't need to be. What's more Durmus is very likely to be at least a moderate success wherever he goes so the idea of shifting him to Killie (if they'd want him) seems counter productive. Foley I wouldn't like to see moved on either. He is still our captain, and still offers the team something whether that is in midfield or defence. Sure it's a bit of a luxury to have both him and Flynn not getting games but these two guys while maybe not first team picks at present will be needed for the run in and the inevitable injuries and suspensions we pick up (esp Erhahon if only because he seems to be guaranteed a booking each game). I know us St Mirren fans are used to very lean squads, but we're also used to struggling to retain our league position. It's no coincidence (imo, anyway) that we have some depth to the squad and we are currently mid table (granted only by a few points but it's still the case). Come Summer you can look at where Durmus, Foley and the rest sit, but as it is and if they are still willing to contribute (and I've seen nothing to suggest otherwise) then they are still an asset. I mean all of this is on the basis that we'll bring no-one else in. I can legitimately see us going for another defender and another midfielder, even if on loan and that may require one or two guys that Goodwin knows will be going in the summer, making way a bit early. I'm actually pretty surprised that Sheron is still on the wage bill and is only surely because Fleetwood got shot of Barton recently. 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
