  1. Mullen & Baird, possibly Flynn?
  2. Reports out of Romania from what look like a reliable journo and newspaper with interview suggest it has. Possibly either waiting on paperwork or anounnclng a few on same day.
  3. I thought the same. I mind a coupel of years ago Morton got stung for this on their signing of Tidser in the January window. Signed him then didn't realise he couldn't play for them till next season!
  4. No disrespect in anyway to McShane, though he is currently playing for a club that were rooted the foot of the championship before his arrival. He will be head an shoulders above most of his team mates.
  5. Add international caps to that too
  6. I take it you don't like the board?
  7. 2 managers in a row can't be wrong as much as Stubbs was an arse? Had a clean slate with OK and still couldnt make a regular place in starting 11.
  8. We also made money on the transfer of Ross Stewart, so surely that would have subsidised some of the Heaton transfer if not, what we have paid of it so far. Stubbs most likely could have brought in one or two more, though the board seen trusting him with anymore of a budget was a major risk when he couldn't even identify a striker, a creative midfielder or winger.
  9. Both Josh and Cody Cooke were based on their ability of playing at National region league football. That is where Josh has ended up back at. If we have someone within our backroom staff assessing him from now till end of the season, I am sure there will be a fair judgement on him. Could end up being a key player for Kidderminster as they chase promotion, comes back a refresher player full of confidence.
  10. I think if Alfie was to leave, must be a sign that we have a replacement lined up. Let's not forget, he hadnt played first team football before arriving here, so he is still learning. We are in a relegation fight and he holds a key area on the field playing just in front of the goalie. He has only started to come on to a game though he still has some traits that show his lack of experience. There is a possibility OK wants a more experienced head in his centre half pairing?
  11. With the exemption of Kpekawa and King whos agents are trying to find both clubs, this has been a very successful window already imo with it only being 4th January. We needed to cut down the squad, and give OK the chance to bring in a few. The departed players are with all due respect were surplus to requirements and i wish them well, though its all about bringing in quality replacements, which i trust Gus and the board have been working on. I expect the club will be announcing one or two new signings early next week in time to prepare for our return from the break.
  12. I thought Kidderminster were in the National league, though they are actually one division lower. I actually thought the same about Darlington when we signed him. Hopefully game time will get him in shape for pre-season to see if he has was it takes.
  13. Nicky :Low moved to Dundee from Aberdeen couple of seasons ago. Couldnt imagine they have signed him back?
  14. My thoughts are that MacKenzie is February till he is back, though he hasn't had a pre-season. Is he doing his training just now or is he still in recovery mode, i am unsure. A loanee to fill for an injured position is probably the best solution. I think insurance for players covers at least part of their wage. With regards to Anton, I would like to think he would stay for the remainder of the season if he is not homesick. Seems to be a very likeable guy and has bags of experience to pass on to our younger players which is a key asset in such a predicament we find ourselves in.
  15. Both treated disgracefully by Stubbs. I think Ecks chances have gone considering we are playing a 17 old centre mid at left back. Was a great player for us last season. GMack also a great player, though his chances will be very limited once returning from injury due to the rotation we have between Ferdinand, Jones and Baird.
  16. We have actually been really productive too. To move 4 players (Willock back to man utd, Kirkpatrick, Mcshane and Hammill) and find suiters for them is actually good going as it frees up space for incoming players. Obviously Hammill was one who we would have preferred to stay, though he could easily free up space for one or two quality replacements. For all we know, deals have already been agreed for players coming in and due to the winter break we are delaying in announcing. It has been done so in the past pre-season. Anyone know official size of squad now with Heaton king and Kpekawa still included?
  17. We can't hold on to someone who doesn't want to be here. I think all along Hammill was playing with us short term for a move elsewhere. He's now closer to home and has security of an 18 month deal.
  18. I think with Kirkpatrick and McShane confirmed departures now, then i would expect to see some incoming movement by the end of this week. Could delay an announcement till 7th when the press team are back.
  19. Or/and who are within a more commutable area to his family.
  20. Aiden Nesbitt just released by MK Dons. Wide player, though no experience at our level. Looked decent on loan at Morton couple of seasons ago from Celtic
  21. Can't believe I missed out Sammy. With regards to the others you mentioned, not getting much game time at the moment, so would make sense and more realistic of being players moving on.
  22. Agree in terms of most likely not replacing with same numbers departing. Oran did say he would prefer to work with a squad of 21/22 including youngsters coming through.
  23. I think the ten leaving probably includes the loanees that have been sent back since OK took charge. If that's the case, 3 loanees have departed, Kirkpatricks gone and King, Kpekawa and Heaton told they can leave. I know the latter 3 are still to leave, though that would make 7 with some other fairly obvious ones not announced, still to go, whether that is on loan or permanently.
