League 1 standard, decent move for him.

Unless that #2 is his squad number :lol: @Against The Machine

I really like Dave McKay, but on the sole condition that he's played as a centre half who doesn't have to do intricate passing. 

McGlynn's use of him always brought to mind the adage about judging a fish by its ability to climb a tree. He's not a full back. He's certainly not a fucking wing back. 

Wheel him out to the edge of the 18 yard box and let him win headers and smash into strikers. He's top half League One standard for doing that, easy. Just don't try and get him to run with the ball or try to deliver crosses.

We tend not to run with the ball, we favour a launching it long approach, so he'll be fine.

Just clocked that, too. Decent bit of business.

The article states 'second signing of the day', it doesn't say 'final signing of the day' emoji102.png

Surely not 3 signing in one day

Dave McKay incoming ...

Aye, would agree - championship is above his ceiling but should be a decent CB in league 1. Is, in theory, capable of playing at right back and McGlynn used him a lot there in the 19/20 season. Don't expect any overlapping runs.

Decent signing that ... was always impressed with the way he telt Billy Bremner, btw ...

Welcome home Gavin. 2 year deal, love to see it 

Aye, this looks a decent signing - hope we see the same Gav as first time around - think he's struggled a bit since leaving us (injuries a part of that?).

Hope Dave does well with you. He always was behind someone until his injury, so too often used at RB, where he is NOT suited. Should be a good CB for you in League One, and with play might well develop to Championship quality.

In other news, a couple of good managerial appointments for us I'd say. I think Ian Murray is an overrated manager but he's clearly done a good job at Airdrie. Him leaving will surely leave them in a weaker place. McPake being named as the new Dunfermline manager is also good news. I think he's a terrible manager so with any luck he'll make an arse of it at the Pars. Two playoff/title competitors hopefully in a weaker position just now than we'd have expected.

^^^ This.

Was thinking along the same lines ...

Dunfermline - new manager - McPake was either loathed or adored by the Dees on here.  Stressful times at EEP which could be good for QOS

Airdrie - Murray departing and looks like he'll take a couple of good players with him from Airdrie to Kirkcaldy.  Airdrie will need to find a replacement - could be Kevin Thomson from Kelty perhaps?  Apart from weakening Airdrie, that would also maybe weaken Kelty too, not sure.  Again, could be good for QOS.

Kelty - lots of rumours that they'll lose their manager soon - depends if it happens, but would cause some disruption even if temporary.

Falkirk - serious contenders obviously, but yet another new management team incoming.  I like McGlynn's football but sometimes managers just don't fit well at certain clubs and the politics can be unhelpful.  Could be good for the Bairns but could equally take some time to sort itself out.

QOS - well of course, lets not forget that we also have a management change that could either work or not work!

Tough league to call this I think!

I'm hoping WG is planning on going with 2 up front. The last time I saw Reilly play was against us and he was up top by himself (no idea if it was intentional or his partner was just nowhere to be seen) but he struggled badly. I don't think he's cut out for that role.
