Yes we do! Not good news his knees are failing. Hopefully he gives us one good season and aids us in promotion to the Championship. 

Our defence is already fairly strong for L1 standard without Reynolds. We'll start Strachan at CB and it'll either be Reynolds or Morgyn Neill alongside him. Our left back, Harry Milne, is our best defender and could play higher. Right back Scott Ross has his position cemented.

Dundee United have outstanding young players and I'm sure the change of the older guard will work out well for you.

How has Daniel Higgins been for you? Looked like he had the potential to be a decent CH for us before he bizarrely decided the Kilmarnock U21s was a better option. (I already await the tap in I've presented for United fans)

In his first season, whilst we were in L2, he got games and was starting to look fairly strong and reliable. He then got injured, was out for 2 months and basically never got back into the team. Ross Graham froze him out last season. If Reynolds comes in he's maybe 4th choice CH.

He can still do a job for us in L1 but must be a bit demoralised being left on the bench each week. To that extent I wouldn't be massively surprised if he moved on which would be a shame.

I'm hoping the relative close distance between Cove and both premiership Dundee sides allows us to get a few promising young lads on loan.

With McPake's relationship with Hartley, I wouldn't be surprised!

£350k bid in for Siegrist. 

1 year left on his contract - won't take much more than that to get him - maybe 500k, so he's off.

This is just the start of Ogren cutting his losses.

Probably £1m for Pawlett, half that for Harkes.  I think we should hold out for £1.5m for Sporle.

Scotland playing like a Micky Mellon team there (albeit the Waitrose version). Fucking bleurgh. Wee Tommy Courts simply can't be as bad as the guy he's replacing*.

 

* aesthetically speaking and therefore completely subjective to me so dinnae bother casting this up when we get relegated.

I hear its a swap with Pawlett and £1m coming our way.

I hope the wee man can fill Pawletts physio table.

1 million coming our way from his agent buying out our stake in him as he's a free agent?

Are those realistic valuations?  Are any Scottish Premiership teams likely to be interested, or would bottom English championship/ league 2 teams be the market?

No. That's just Granny's little joke.

This would be a good signing 

 

Yeah, I think if you were to nick him from us you could very much count it as a coup. Saints fans will dress it up and say he wasn't great for the latter half of the season - and he wasn't  - but the fact is we've been trying to get him to sign a deal since before Xmas and he's been holding out.

Suspicion is his agent has been touting him down south, perhaps without much success - so my guess would be he's now trying teams in Scotland who could add an extra K or something to the weekly wage.
