  1. How is it a tougher league when the better team stayed out? Dundee Utd have severe financial problems and gambled on going straight back up. They will have less dosh next season. And they will be losing at least their two best players from this season - Murray and Andreu. And they should bring more supporters than Hamilton would which is good for the cash flow of the League. Good result for us I should think.
  2. It's only May. Many players are on holiday. The transfer window does not open until 1st July. No need to panic. Another point that was raised on P&B is that the income of most clubs in the Championship will be significantly down this season with most introducing lower player budgets. We have lost Hibs and Ayr to be replaced with Inverness and Brechin. Could potentially lose Dundee Utd to be replaced by Hamilton and while Raith did not bring a huge support it was a damn sight better that what Livi will bring. This will be the lowest supported Championship in years.
  3. They are still on the books but I do not think JR is looking at either of them as first choices.
  4. A lot of guys are still under contract until the end of this month at least and the transfer window does not open until 1st July. It's still May. Plenty of time to say who is going and who is staying.
  5. Maybe, maybe not. Davis won't be fit before August so signing a part-timer as cover may be good business. Have to wait and see.
  6. Hope Hamilton do it next time round. I prefer Utd to be in the Championship next season with a far smaller player budget due to their debt. And a decent Away support would not go amiss - they might even open the North stand for them.
  7. Allegedly they want to keep him on but he wants to know how much cash they can provide for players. The decisions will be made by the American owners once they find on what is going on.
  8. Do not know if a decision can be quickly made on Loy. I reckon we want him and reckon he wants to come here however Neil McCann may want to check him over before releasing him from the year left on is contract. Hope it is him but feel we may have to wait a wee bit longer on a decision. PS Would absolutely love Davis to sign as well.
  9. 324 now sold for the West Bank.Ticket Office closed on Monday.
  10. Jack played Walsh from the start against Morton at Cappielow and he was dreadful. He was ditched at half-time and Jack never picked him again. No chance Jack will now re-sign him. Talented but lazy and doesn't fit Jack's style.
  11. We did not pay a lot but we did pay a fee for Bradley. http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/teams/s/st_mirren/8769403.stm
  12. Agree about urging caution. Jack has only signed two lower league players so far and has no past experience with Stewart as far as I can tell. I like that his signings are young and hungry for success - reminds me of Fergie's Furies And as an aside we actually paid a fee for the 4th signing from Cowdenbeath that summer - Peter Bradley - anyone remember him???? And we paid a fee for Mooy that season, never played him, and he is now worth a fortune. Signings are a gamble!
  13. The Summer of Beath was different in that the manager went to his last Club and signed half of them. And they were two Divisions lower than us at the time. JR has only signed one guy from Alloa and barring a penalty miss he would have been playing in the same League as us this season anyway so maybe not a huge step up. And Stewart has now two full seasons of regular playing under his belt and has been capped at U17, U18, U19 level - not bad for a 22 yo keeper. All signings are a gamble but so far Jack is winning more than he is losing.
  14. Everything was going fine until you popped up
  15. From OS. (I like the comments from both guys). St Mirren are delighted to confirm the signing of goalkeeper Ross Stewart and midfielder Jordan Kirkpatrick. The pair have signed two-year deals with the Buddies and become the latest to join Jack Ross’ side. 22 year-old Stewart began his career at Motherwell before spending the last two seasons with League One side Albion Rovers. He has been capped by Scotland at U17, 18 and 19 levels and makes the move back to full time football. Speaking on the move, Stewart said: "I’ve been looking forward to this for a while. There were talks with Albion, the gaffer and myself and I’ve been dying to get it done and get in. "It’s a great club. Seeing how hungry the gaffer and the coaching staff are for success and where they want the club to be sold the move to me as well.” Meanwhile, Kirkpatrick joins from Alloa Athletic where he has impressed last season. The 25 year-old scored 17 goals from midfield during the 2016/17 campaign and earned a nomination for League One Player of the Year. Kirkpatrick said: "I’m on cloud nine right now. To get back to a full time environment and work like a manager like Jack is brilliant. "It was really the only club I wanted to come to. If I had the chance to get back with Jack I was going to take it in a second."
