  1. This is the result of being safe last season and reaching two semi finals. The cash that brought in and the fact it's raised our profile has, IMO, made these signings possible. Anybody who think last season wasn't a success should possibly have a wee lie down.

    Welcome Greg Kiltie

    Ah well, since it's now on P&B courtesy of a St. Johnstone fan, the player I've heard is Scott Tanser who would be another superb bit of business.

  10. Even when he's not been scoring, he's always looked the sort of player who could do his fair share of damage. As replacements for Durmus go, could we have realistically done any better? I don't think so.

    Finally a player to get excited by. He is just the type of player we need. Now a striker who knows where the goal is and a Goodwin type of player for centre midfield please

  19. I've had time to take thought on this one since hearing about it yesterday. I wasn't exactly excited by this potential signing, though if we want the best out of our two likely goalscorers, Brophy and Dennis, a wrecking ball figure working up front with them either creating knock ons or pulling the opposition out of play, could be a very good foil to give them the freedom to do their thing. Not every forward is prolific in front of goal, though their link up can create the chances for others.

    Well fans on P&B agree Main is not a goalscorer however he has been described as a 'wrecking ball' and given praise for closing down and being a nuisance and holding the ball up. Certainy Jim has been critical of our strikers for not working hard enough so maybe this is just another piece to the jigsaw. Not overwhelmed but maybe he can take the weight off Brophy/Dennis.

  25. The very real impact of this signing and of Dunne last week is pretty telling. We know that Jim prefers a 3-5-2 but we now have the bodies in the squad to play either a 3-5-2 or to switch to a flat back four when needed. Tanser is definitely better at wing back than flat out full back but that's fine. When we need to go 4 at the back, Tait comes in there without issue. It's fantastic that we've added just 2 new faces (plus technically Finlayson) and we now have a pretty large variety of options as to who can fit in where without shoehorning folk into positions they don't ever need to be.

  27. Bottom line is this is the market we are in. Up to player and manager to make them more prolific up front. Plus they need decent service. Look at Scotland last night against Luxembourg. Quality service, below average finishing. Hopeful with Kiltie coming in that we look attractive to players again as a destination

    Just signed for Killie. Good signing. Hope he has a great season.

  29. Does he not have a name them??? Pretty sure if you reveal his name it shouldn't scupper any potential deal. You'd think that but the club was apparently targeting a young full-back from Juventus a couple of years ago and his name got out onto Twitter leaving the club raging at it getting leaked. So I'll not take any chances.

    Welcome Curtis Main

    He's more a pressing forward than a striker. If he complements Dennis/ Brophy up front and allows others to bang the goals in, good times.

  31. Agree , as I’ve said elsewhere I’ll give full support to anyone who pulls on the stripes and give them the chance to show what they can do. ( here’s the caveat !). Some who arrive with underwhelming stats may stretch the patience a wee bit . I hope Main rams my doubts down my throat just as I hoped Morais would ( He Didn’t !) Erwin would ( he hasn’t ) and I’m sure many others .

    Wrong one. It's a bit of a non-comparison anyway. Thomson was a central mid, Main is a centre forward.

  42. Main is fine as backup. Don’t understand the outcry over the signing. Was excellent at Motherwell as a target man - I think their fans are quite salty as he left them to join Aberdeen, where he was consistently deployed in a role that doesn’t suit his style of play. He scored twice at Hampden against Motherwell in the Scottish Cup semi a couple of years ago, if only we had that threat v Livingston/St Johnstone this year. I think he will be good in the role that JG is trying to shoehorn Erwin into. That said, his goal scoring record is poor but if he can bring Brophy/Dennis alive in the last half hour of games I’ll be happy.

  44. Generally Well fans thought Main did a good job keeping a defence occupied giving their flair players space to strut their stuff. I am sure Jim is after more than just Main as he has let 4 strikers leave.

    Apparently Main is happening. That's a f**king dreadful signing if true. And none of this 'Oh don't write him off before we've seen him in a Saints shirt' shite. He's played for two of the top 4 clubs in Scotland at the time in Motherwell and Aberdeen and couldn't hit a coo in the arse with a banjo at either. I've seen enough of him to reach the conclusion that he's pish. What are we even doing sniffing about this level of player?!

  48. According to The Fakes fans they tried to sign Kiltie. Kiltie "wanted" to go to them, but our offer was so good, they wouldn't match it as it would have made Kiltie their "highest paid player". You can almost taste their salty tears.

    Nothing like convincing oneself that this is a good signing.
