How do you rate Moffat since we came back to the Championship?

I don't think CF has been the position where his contribution to the team is strongest.

For Ashford, maybe he can contribute more in a wider position (I haven't been at the games where he has been played in that position so I don't have a view on that either way) but my point is that I don't think we should be looking at him as a centre forward for next season based on what I have seen and his goals return. I have seen him getting into very good positions but his finishing for whatever reason hasn't been good enough. I think we have seen enough of Tomi to know that he will easily score more than last season in a Bullen team, so the task is to find another CF who can get into double figures and we will be looking up rather than down.

f**k knows but I can’t see Mathie wanting much to do with it so hopefully it’s been patched.

Wouldn’t be so sure. Mathie announced a partnership last summer between Hibs and Brighton but after he left the Hibs Chief Exec said the strategic partnership didn’t really exist. Plus Brighton loaned 3 players this season to Hearts, Aberdeen and St Johnstone while Hibs got none. So sounds like our partnership with Burnley could be right up his street. 

From what I heard at the Partick game it does still exist and they were blaming COVID for it not developing into anything more, but given it's just a way for Burnley to sign our most promising youngsters on the cheap I wouldn't be gutted if it was scrapped.

90k? For some reason I thought we had spent more than that at some point.

In case I'm missing something, Gary Teale is still both Ayr's record signing and record sale.

I'm sure it was Sammy Johnston. 100,000 from St Johnstone. 

Gary Teale, £400000 sold to Wigan and £90000 bought from Clydebank.

Joe Chalmers, £1 and a mars bar to Dunfermline and bought for a packet of cheese and onion from Inverness.

One was a fantastic football player, the other is an inadvertent football comedy genius.

Some things money can't buy, for everything else, relegation 👍

I'm sure we paid £90k for Mark Campbell as well. It was reported that we paid £100k for Sammy Johnston down here, but in Perth it was said to be £50k.

Dalziel spent some amount of money on shite.

Imagine what we could have achieved with all that money AND a competent manager. 

Uncle Ian with all that money.

I'd bet even Brian Reid or Mark Kerr would have done a better job than Dalziel with all that money.

Well, if you name the players Dalziel brought in, there's a good few that come across as odd. Probably only bought them so other teams couldn't have them.

Allan McManus, Scott Crabbe, Craig McEwan etc.
