Not as good as Tomi. 

Not so sure about that . We only had him for 6 or 7 games before Covid kicked in but I though he was the real deal . More an all court centre forward than Tomi , high energy and work rate with a good left peg . He’s got 13 goals in 40 games in L2 , will Tomi ? We’ll see . Would take either back in a heartbeat ....

Aaron Drinan any good? Think it's unlikely considering he's got another year on his deal down South, but it's been mentioned on our forum. What's he like? What's he like in comparison to Adeloye?

Different player to Tomi but would do well at this level given a full season. He’s quick, strong and appeared hard working for us. Only had him for a couple months before Covid hit but I really liked him and just about everyone on here wanted him back the following season.

The quality players teams sign are normally those from a league above unable to secure their preferred option. Knock on effect trickles down the leagues as players find a wage. Two or three quality players can tie things together and improve a poor situation

This is undoubtedly true, but it is also the case that e.g. Maxwell and McInroy were the difference between finishing bottom and scraping eighth. "Two good Old Firm loan signings and we can look forward to maybe scraping eighth" is a pre-season rallying cry to end them all.

Ooft temperatures are pretty high on here today . People are disappointed I get that . So moving forward we now have a bounce game in Perth in a few days , anyone think we’ll have any new players in in time for that game ? Would be ideal if we did , give them a chance to settle in before the Arbroath game . Also somebody somewhere must have a clue as to the identity of the name or names we’re talking to ..... 

If we're talking to players who were hanging off on waiting to see how we performed in the league cup we're royally fucked now!!!

Just seen the penalty given away what a clown McKenzie is player going nowhere absolutely no danger and he clatters in to him, don’t know what Bullen sees in him but keep playing him and he will get him sacked, then he caps it with the penalty miss, get him as far away from Somerset as possible boy would struggle in the juniors.

It's honestly getting the stage now where i'd be willing for us to take a punt on Griffiths

Give him a 1 year deal with a break clause in January if he hasn't scored anymore than 5 goals we can let him go. 

If he banged in the goals for us from the start some lower end premiership club struggling would probably come in and give us some cash for him in January...

It's becoming harder and harder to disagree with this. I don't think he's cut out for this level. Except for that game at Dundee he's never been up to it. Definitely best for him to go out on loan. Otherwise he'll become a lightning rod for criticism if Bullen keeps playing him.

Doesn't score too many but constantly harasses defenders and likes generally rumbling them up all game.

He could car share with Scott Allan

That goal against Partick is without a doubt the best I've ever seen in the flesh.

The Keigan Parker bicycle kick still has it licked imo. Absolutely FIFA 94 Janco Tiano special it was.

Goals? What is they?

Painful that after a good few years the club has yet to come close to replacing Shankland in the team. 

If you take it back to the start of the Dalziel / Barr era there's almost always been someone worth paying to see, whether it was Horace, Hurst, Teale, Conway, Moffat, Stevenson or Shankland. 

Just have to hope one of the current squad emerges in that way, but there's no evidence so far.

I suppose that makes sense if you have written off all the summer signings already. You got any preferred candidates for the next head coach yet?

I’m just catching up on the other night. Bullen is fucking hilarious, starts Hewitt at RM and then when he eventually decides to replace him it is McKenzie over O’Connor. I think I’m beginning to realise that I was clutching at straws hoping Bullen was trying to just see the season out in some way with these weird substitutions. It seems that is just him, and that is incredibly fucking worrying.
