  1. Wake up call

    Back to sleep now everybody
  2. Livingston v St Mirren 17th Feb

    We put the 'Dobbie always scores against us' to bed last week. I'm sure we'll do the same with the Livie player next week
  3. It all comes back to the plan B situation. If the team is under siege (like we have been in the latter stages in a few games) a punt to a big striker to hold the ball up is a good way to relieve pressure. In that respect Sutton is our only option now but I feel Stewart could offer that role also. Back to topic and well done to Jack who has improved significantly over the course of the season.
  4. From what I have seen so far I'd have Ross Stewart in the team ahead of Mullen. I haven't seen anything in Mullen to suggest he is that good.

    Walter also walked away when the call from Ibrox came. On that basis I would deem him unsuitable to be re-hired and he can GTF
  6. The Webster ruling is irrelevant in relation to HD.
  7. So if, as you say, no club has been able to enforce a properly contested contract extension then there is no legal precedent then your argument would require it to be in Statute. Perhaps you could direct us to the Act of parliament where this is written into UK law? In any case, when it comes to the year end, the club are going to take up their extension and if someone else comes in for him a transfer fee will be required if he wants to go. I imagine somehow along the lines of when a development fee is required if the club have offered a new contract. So, we are running away ahead on hypotheticals I'm just going to enjoy watching him for the rest of the season and if he's here next year then magic. Signing off
  8. So not an actual example? I was really looking forward to the actual example and all you have done is use an example which does not fit the criteria under the discussion you started. Go on, have another go
  9. Specifically, it states that any player who signed a contract before the age of 28 can buy himself out of the contract three years after the deal was signed. If he is 28 or older the time limit is shortened to two years.[ You do realise that Mr Davis's contract is for a period of less than three years? The defence rest's their case m'lord
  10. M*r*on benefit game??

    Love the picture of Tommy on the cover, a foot off the ground studs up
  11. January 2018 Transfer Window

    Sutton or Stewart? I'd like to see more of Stewart. He looks really good with the ball at his feet and can also win high balls which is a big problem up front when neither Sutton or Stewart are on the field. Unfortunately I think Sutton days are numbered.

    It is discrimination if the rules say "you can't play that player because you don't have enough young players in your team". You can argue away to your heart's content but at the end of the day if the rules say you can only have so many of "this" type of player in your squad then it is discriminating against others who do not fit "this" criteria.

    Until youngsters are instilled with the belief that they are equally able with both feet and develop a high level of close control we are doomed as a footballing nation. Watching the Brazilians the other night at Wembley it was apparent that they are comfortable receiving the ball from any direction and are able to pick out a pass or shot with either foot. I don't think they are naturally gifted enough that this is raw talent, I believe this is learned and anyone given the training and practise can learn these skills. Maybe I'm wrong but it really bugs me that quite good players will not touch the ball with the wrong foot and are therefore more easily defended against.
