The thing that Forrest is missing is a 15-20 goal season. He’s always around the 10 goal mark but for him to go to play at a higher level he needs to show he’s a regular goal threat. This season looks as though he can get there if he stays fit.

I think he’d be perfect to move into the Moffat role (when the great man retires) but I can’t see him sticking around long enough for that to be the case.

Forrest has scored over 50 goals for us in less than 200 games which is s pretty decent return for any midfielder.  I think he’s still only 22/23 despite the fact it feels like he’s been around for years.  Like Crawford, he has also suffered a lot from being played out of position for long periods.  15-20 goals a season seems a bit unrealistic - it’s hard enough finding strikers who can return that number.

Forrest has yet to break into double figures for goals in a season. However, he is only one goal away from equalling his highest tally which is 9 goals. Interestingly, he has scored 9 goals in four separate seasons. He currently has 8 goals after 13 games which is a great scoring record for a midfielder. This season could be the one were he scores double figures.

Saw that Johnathan Tiffoney is playing for Stenhousemuir now.

He was a decent prospect but was an absolute idiot of a boy.

Is Tiffoney still suing us? I haven't seen anything about it since last September.

His whole career (if you can call it that) is a sorry tale. Totally self inflicted. 

Pretty sure Lachlan said in one of the Q&As that he wasn’t successful (surprise surprise) but it still cost the club a fair bit of money in legal expenses.

Think we can safely say Dundee United are going to romp the league. Pivotal we finish 2nd to give us the best possible chance in the playoffs.

I'm a wee bit worried about our inevitable collapse in the second half of the season. Hoping this was a phenomenon under McCall and Kerr & McArdle can sort it out.

I do think a big part of this was having injury prone players in a small squad. Hopefully with Ross already gone and Adams and Doolan away in January we can bolster the squad with guys that stay fit.

I agree that Dundee United look likely to win the league but there’s no reason why we can’t hold onto 2nd place.

Hopefully not. We've got them at home last game of the season and I'd consider it our finest achievement if we were to ruin it for them

Depends how much cash the likes of Dundee and Inverness spunk on a new team in January, well Dundee will but Inverness are skint.

For us to get top 2...

We need at the very least 1 central defender ideally 2 as Roscoe and Muirhead as a partnership will not do. 

At the very least 1 new centre midfielder as Murdoch will be out for the season and with Kerr.

And to tie down Craig Moore until the end of the season and another striker.

And we need them all not to be duds, which may be a tall order considering it's  his first transfer window. Hanging onto where we are now when the window opens will of course  allow us to attract a better quality of player.

I can see January being a pretty busy month for us. Ross is already away and I expect Doolan and Adams to follow. Need to get Moore tied up (hopefully on an 18 month deal) as well as bringing in a Centre back, Centre Mid and Striker. 
 

Would also be looking at trying to get our better players tied down for next season if possible. Harvie, Forrest, Murdoch, Docherty etc.

Not just that it’s his first window but it’s also January which makes it even harder for him to get the right guys in. Can’t believe we’re in second place and will likely have to go through a mini rebuild job in January.

Would rather he done it for Scotland u21’s than Ayr United to be fair. 

Not when you had £20 on a 0-0 draw at 11/1

But Yes, I get your point.

The fact that we're clear 2nd in the league means they must be doing something right.

Realistically we're not going to attract anyone of a higher standing than who the likes of Dunfermline, Partick, Inverness or Dundee etc already have in those positions, however we're above them all in the league and in some cases by quite a way, so maybe we should have more of a reality check as the Scottish Championship is not the place we're likely to find perfection or guys of the standing of Godin, Bonucci, Chiellini, Van Dyk or Koulibaly.

Who knows, there may be a "hidden gem" out there but by the same token there will also be multiple diddies, especially in January................
