There are some decent keepers in and around the league who shouldn’t be too far out of our reach - I like Jak Alnwick at St Mirren, but he’s under contract for another season so that might rule him out. Liam Kelly has done well on loan at Motherwell, he may be available one way or another next season. Depending on what happens over the summer it might be worth a phone call to Celtic to enquire about Bain. 
 

I hope we’ve learnt our lessons from the season we went down when we started with Zwick and Szromnik, who had played about 3 professional games between them. I think that was a huge factor in our eventual relegation. 

Personally I don't rate Bain at all.

Mellon might well have some good contacts and knowledge of the English lower leagues (a market that's served Scottish PL teams pretty well in recent times).

No matter what, Siegrist's shoes will be big ones needing filled.

I reckon Bain’s had a shit season, but there’s barely a Celtic player that wouldn’t apply to. I rated him very highly when he was at the Dees and I reckon if you got him playing & confident again he’s still a good keeper. iLy3Df.gif

Dillon Powers is back in the states. I don't think we'll see him play again for United.

We barely seen him play in the first place. Seemed like an OK player but verging on immobile.

I would suggest the two are incompatible.

Obvious from his very first appearance that he had the turning circle of the Ever Given - almost as baffling a signing as giving Connolly an extended contract.

Not necessarily. He can play a decent pass and strike the ball. If he's required to move or turn then he's beyond useless.

Media reporting on Twitter this morning that Pawlett will sign a new two-year deal at the club.

I really hope that this is not true.  If re-signing Pawlett is the extent of our ambition as a club then it’s a sad day.

Pawletts new deal better be on hugely reduced terms. So far this season we have seen new contracts for Connolly, Harkes, Clark, Smith & now Pawlett, with Smith being the only one that most would agree on (Clarks new deal would be acceptable if he was being played as a forward). 
These deals are a bit concerning for me if the club truly wish to progress as we should surely be looking at improving & replacing a large amount of the first team but that isn’t looking like the case.

The terms are irrelevant, he’s either good enough or he’s not - and he’s not.  Clark definitely deserved a new contract, even as a second string striker but more so if Shanks moves on in the summer.

Tony strikes again, it appears. 

Wild.

Player knows hes not getting anywhere near his current wage again. Agent puts out story other club are interested. Current club panic and throw contract at player.

Just imagine the thought process of someone running a top flight club offering Mark Connolly and Peter Pawlett multi-year deals.

Pawlett is somewhere between massively unambitious and bewildering waste of money.

I wouldn't have been racing out to renew any of our 'creative' player deals when we've struggled so much to create chances.

 

What a poor, poor new deal to sign from United's point of view.

But...wait...we've got global contacts...scouts and analysts...a recruitment team...we've got Tony the ex Agent as Sports Director running the show and signing everything off.

And yet we're extending an aging Pawlett who's injured regularly after hearing rumours that the manager is getting hoofed unless he plays these amazing young lads we have who are practically falling over each other to get into the first team?

At least his son and his mate are still in a job. Has the young guy in India (?) been upto much recently?

Hopefully it’s also linked to the quality of play, in which case it’s a huge money maker for the club.

If thats what you have to tell yourself to make it feel better, m8.

Deals like that don't exist, though.

I'm sure his son has been on the blower to the guy playing Football Manager for us in India or whatever hes up to. Im assuming more than once anyway.

There will be a basic salary and a massive appearance bonus, goan and assist bonus id assume.

I'm sure he'll be fighting fit from now on.
