  1. I don't think there will be many to be honest, as I think he was one of the better signings. Im sure most would agree on that. I think Coulson fell victim to Stubbs not actually having a proper formation in place he could work to his preferred tole. If anything he probably weakened Coulsons ability at the time with his positioning. Saying that, I watched Coulson playing for Cambridge last Feb/March at Carlisle and he wasn't very good, but he seemed to be playing a free role along the back and in midfield. Seems to be getting his game now. I'd imagine he is playing his preferred role as he has had decent game time.
  2. Delighted with this news. I always knew we intended bringing in another centre half after McCarthy. We definitely seem more prepared at the back with Broadfoot in mind, coming back from injury too. Seems to be highly thought of and was the u23 captain at Norwich. Been on the bench a couple of times this season so manager obviously rates him. We didn't do too badly with Alfie Jones last season who had a similar background with Southampton.
  3. I think Jack himself feels he should be an established first pick by now at his age and game time since his debut. I like him, though in order for him to get first team football every week, it is probably best for his career for a move.
  4. I think there is a sentimental value to the West Stand. It has become the home of many fans who sat in the Northbank at Love Street and to many giving up a seat that you purchased during the move from the old ground means a lot. The Northbank boys in W7 have also worked hard to generate an atmosphere in that corner.
  5. I've not looked through all of the pages on this topic, so apologies if I have missed anything. At the Killie game, the guy in front of me said that there was only around a 400 attendance difference between the Killie game and the Celtic game. Are we charging OF fans more per head, than we would be housing our own fans in the family stand? I just wanted to check the weigh up in difference of income. I think if the club starts to move in the right direction, which I believe it is gradually starting to, putting more points on the board and climbing the table, we can increase our home gates.
  6. His brother plays at Dumbarton. Last I'd heard Jai was playing out in the Iranian league round about same time Anthony Stokes was out there.
  7. Cork City defender Conor McCarthy is being linked with a move to the SPL, with St. Mirren his likely destination. Source: Cork City FC News via Twitter
  8. In fairness Tony Fitz mentioned 5 positions we are looking to aff. I think one of the centre half positions is possibly with view of McLoughlin moving on as there was never any guarantee Hull would allow us to extend his stay. Whether the other centre half position is to replace Baird or to add to our options I have no idea, though with GMack being forever injury prone, this is most likely going to be his last season and a long term replacement with similar attributes will be the target of being sourced I'd think.
  9. Spot on with the 'ins' from what Tony Fitz described pre-match yesterday, Would not be surprised if adding to the outs, a couple go out on loan. Goody has said that he would prefer Erhahon to be developed in his natural position (defensive midfield), though as it stands, imo he is not going to force his way into the starting lineup, especially with MacPherson now staking a place. Development could be better served on loan elsewhere. May also send out a couple of other young fringe players to give them experience to push closer to the first team next season. Djorkaeff is getting no game time in the first team and seems surplus to requirements imo. Mullen? - If its true we are looking to recruit another striker, that would give us 5/6 first team options upfront (Mullen, Obika, Cooke, Morias + possibly Andreu). Mullen has fallen behind the mentioned. I'm a big fan of Dannys though he seems to be down the pecking order.
  10. I'd say hands down that of players still here from last season, he has been the most consistent top performer in last 12 months. Fantastic player with bags of energy and determination.
  11. Tony said in the club yesterday what positions we need and the number rounded off to 5 players in, not including a goalie which makes me think the club will resist any offers for Hladky. The most obvious positions of the 5 are two centre halfs and a left back. We have been threadbare incentral defence and there are no guarantees that McLoughlins deal will be granted an extension by Hull
  12. Let's not forget, before the club was taken over, there were occasions when the old board members had to top-up club funds from their own pockets (soft-loans)? This is something that has not been required under the new board.
  13. I also heard about a possibility of a keeper been targeted. Whether is was for the end of season or for next window I am unsure. I personally think we need a better left-back with more physicality that can get to the byline and put a decent delivery in. Celtic have just recently knocked back an approach from Stoke for Morgan, so that gives you an idea of the types of teams that are already showing an interest. I do agree we need a bit of a spark on the wing, as McAllister has not shown any signs of last seasons form and seems to be back to the injury table. I'm sure this is an area that the club will be scouting for. I thought though that Djorkaeff could operate on the left-side of midfield? He doesn't seem to be getting his opportunity at all. For me, a LB, Winger (If not Djorkaeff) and possibly cover at centre half. We would all love a free scoring striker, then who wouldn't? I think with Cody Cooks return, he could add some value to our frontline.
  14. You would imagine 300k could get you up to 3 decent players on 2 year deals, including the replacement goalie.
  15. The only thing i would say we have in our favour if any, is that you only need to look at the players who have came from our academy and worked their way into the first team. This is one incentive to stay at the club and earn your move at a later date when you have games under your belt. Teams like Benfica and Bayern Munich however don't come sniffing around too often. John McGinn bided his time and got a move a few years down the line which now has him playing at the highest level.
  16. Imagine at that age getting the opportunity to train at those two clubs. Some experience for the boy. Hopefully we get the chance to see him develop at our club and make sure we help him reach his full potential. I think if he was to leave at such a young age, the compensation fee is next to nothing.
  17. What about offering non-season ticket holders a reduced ticket price for the Celtic game if they buy along with a ticket for this Saturday? Or, alternatively a 3 home game December package at a reduced price? May work, or is it not financially feasible for the club?
  18. A perfect run of fixtures leading into the winter break, if you take your chances and build on the last performance. Saturdays 3 points were huge and another 3 this Saturday would set us up perfectly for Perth with less pressure going into that game. I certainly think the remaining games in December are winnable Celtic aside, even though i think we could still take a point from that if we frustrate them like we did with Rangers before falling to a set-piece. I predict Saints 3 Livingston 1
  19. From what I believe we have already been looking at 3 positions to bring in, goalie included. Whether we have someone lined up to come in next month or not I have no idea, though if we do, then they may just take the cash for Hladky if the price is right. If we could squeeze a further 100-150k out of potential suiters I think we should take it.
  20. He has been ever present for Dinamo Bucharest since he returned. He is a first team regular. They were looking for around £300k first time round, his valuation to them will most likely have risen. We cant compete in that market, when you see the latest accounts recently released. It is just no sustainable and just shows that we are kind of dependent on that extra money from the ugly sisters games.
  21. From what I believe Muzek was offered a deal and turned it down in the summer.
  22. I've only watched the highlights so I can't comment on the full 90 minutes. Did anyone feel we deserved a point or the loss, regardless of how late the decisive goal came?
  23. Celtic supporter. He has St Mirren supporters within his family though.
  24. He's probably been asked the question by the media and that is his response. It's only natural that the media will link him with former players, just like Morgan has been.
  25. Still trying to find the rumour in this story never mind the relation to St. Mirren.
