Speculation Thread in The Rumour Mill Posted Thursday at 07:14 PM · Report reply 2 hours ago, Sonny said: You are totally deluded living in your Stubbs wonderland and spouting the same bullshit. Stubbs only wanted to keep 3 players that had won the Championship only months before - Magennis, Samson and Smith and that was based on a chat with a gibbering journalist. What manager chooses a squad based on a journalist's opinion? The rest could all go according to Stubbs. He told MacKenzie to find a new club weeks after he had signed a new contract and even before Stubbs had watched him play. The same MacKenzie who was great and undefeated in the last six games of the season to keep us up but Stubbs wanted Kpekawa and Heaton as his centre halfs. £80k on a donkey that did not even attend the playoffs for the team that gave him a chance and pay his wages. Heaton over MacKenzie? What an idiot. He never even gave Heaton 5 mins in League games after watching him being torn apart by amateurs of Spartans and Queens Park. He told Baird to find a new club. Flynn started only one League game under Stubbs with Stubbs preferring Willock. Stubbs demanded the Board get rid of Captain Fantastic but the Board refused. They wisely got rid of Stubbs instead. Paul McGinn, Player of the Year, was dropped as soon as Hodson was signed. Stubbs started Smith in 4 of the 5 League games and only decided to get rid of him when Smith called him out for being a wanker. With the exception of Magennis and Samson the players that were from last season and the mainstay for keeping us up were not wanted by Stubbs. What manager tells players to find new clubs when there is little chance of that happening and he has no replacements? The guy signed the worst squad of new players ever assembled by a St Mirren manager. He wanted rid of the players who Kearney realised were the only decent pros that he had in the squad. Stubbs' signings : Coulson - loaned out to Cambridge in January - never played for them. Kpekawa - no club since we released him from a 2 year deal (2 years?????). Heaton - 5 starts for non League Kidderminster and not played in months. Willock - went on loan again to Crawley Town. Released by Man U. Signed for Gillingham today. Jones - back to Southampton's U23 side. Brock-Marsden - released by Birmingham, returned to Denmark. Jeff King - without a club. Ryan Edwards - returned to Hearts. Played 4 games for them. Hodson - now with Gillingham. Cooke - still with St Mirren. 3 starts all season. Rogers - now back at Aberdeen after failing to get in the first team. Aye, Stubbs sure had an eye for a player I went to see Carlisle play Cambridge in March and Coulson played the full game.
