  1. I wonder why he hasn't featured in any unders games yet as a trialist, unless there are some rules against it for overseas trialists.
  2. Am i the only one that thinks its a bit of a risk public letting other clubs know how you scout players with potential of them copying your model if you unearth some gems?
  3. Yardley was one of my favourite players from the past, though a tongue in cheek moment from myself suggesting he was our greatest ever player.
  4. Harry Davis was a decent signing from that level too to be fair. His goalscoring record isnt that bad for a guy in and out of starting lineups. The jury is out on our front two I agree, though have we given them a decent run of playing together? So far, it just doesn't seem to work with Morias as the lone striker. Did Hasselbaink (similar build to Morias) not play with big Thommohawk upfront when he was with us? A little and large partnership may be the answer. Alternatively i'd like to see us start with both Durmus and McAllister on the wings, with a target man in either Cooke or Obika to deliver crosses in to.
  5. Shankland who received a 6 figure signing on fee and a 6 figure annual salary by signing for Dundee utd.
  6. Thing is, he probably is doing well in training hence being front of the pecking order.
  7. My only take on Cammy being in front of Mcginn, would be his versatility if required to fill more than one position on the field. It seems that the gaffer wants to fill his bench with more attacking minded players. Interested to see what Djorkaeff has to offer when given the opportunity.
  8. I have a feeling with our attacking options in midfield we will see more chances converted in these positions. Tony Andreu if starting or at least having some involvement in a game, could easily see him bag at least 10 goals this season. I'm quite confident of that. I still think it's still early days for our front pairing at the moment to judge character. That Obika goal on Saturday was clearly onside.
  9. Goody did say the injury to Mackenzie forced him into making a sub in defence he would have rather had used further up the park in the latter parts of the game yesterday. I'd imagine that may have been Mullen.
  10. Because it's a public playground...sorry forum, not an official SMISA forum. Why should they get caught up on all the madness and loonies, when they can simply reply via email or take a phone call to an enquiry. All this section of the forum seems to bring, is by the large part, people shooting down anything SMISA are doing.
  11. Kirky can play at left-back if required. Cammy MacPherson can play right-back. I understand where you are coming from with regards to age, though the difference between Kirky and GMack, is that the latter has had ongoing injuries for most of his career, whereas Broadfoot hasn't.
  12. Naismith is more of a full-back, something that we have cover on for that right side. He hasn't played centre half for some time. I'd also imagine his wages would have been a stumbling block. Popescu, well his agent ruined that one for him, by moving the goalposts on the contract. The club moved on quickly and that ship has probably sailed, unless an opportunity comes back in January, though it would command a fee at the end of the day. Broadfoot knows the league, has bags of experience and he has been at the club before, working under Gus. Can also deputise at left back if required.
  13. I think he made his debut earlier than expected, which followed by him working his way into the first team in a more regular basis. I remember that debut and thinking, this lads only 17/18, hes an absolute tank! We were very fortunate that when he was at Hibs prior to us, the commute from Ayrshire was getting to much and he moved to us. I had my doubts last night when i first heard the news due to his age, though if he has looked after himself, many pros have played to this age and beyond and done well.
  14. I believe so. Today's market value for a player, if McGinn goes on to have a magnificent first season in the EPL, I wouldn't imagine his value would be any less than £30m and that's if Villa would be prepared to sell at that price considering they just signed him on a new 5 year deal. I think we have already surpassed the Ferguson fee with the sell-on and add-ons from Hibs' deal with Villa.
  15. But on the same night, Tony Fitz nodded at the back of the room when Jim said "you would need to ask Tony". Stewart Gilmour also confirmed this a couple of weeks ago to someone I know whi was talking pre match to him in the supporters bar.
  16. Not according to Tony Fitz and Stewart Gilmour. Both have said we still profit from any Hibs profit, so it's most likely one more move will be out lot and probably our biggest income in our history for a player.
  17. SMiSA are in the process of taking over a football club in the next few years. Would you rather they worked off a spreadsheet or alternatively a two bob system done on the cheap to run a professional organisation going forward? You can't fully depend on an individual or a group of individuals especially on a voluntarily basis to be always available and to respond to everything required for members. If this system takes the weight off of the volunteer committee members and actually benefits SMISA as a whole too, then it is a worthwhile purchase. You can't have a manual process forever. It really depends on an individuals knowledge know how of technology, to actually appreciate how it works and the value behind cost. That is not a dig, it is purely fact.
  18. From experience, it all depends how complex the job is. You are correct with your estimations of a freelance design/developer rate up here, though agencies will charge 2-3 times that up here and at least 4-5 times that down south and something like this would require a programmer too which is higher again. From a professional web design/development perspective, every job is different and you are paying for the time required. If you do an actual project breakdown on time there is more understanding where time is spent on a project. Depending the project £4200 is actually not that bad. Being in the industry in an agency environment I have seen website being built for £35k upwards. Wix and the likes are okay for small website jobs, for business owners with no budget, though web development and programming are professional skills in itself that requires going to uni to get the correct qualifications and knowledge. This is more than just a website.
  19. Yes. Different manager at the time, though was surprised they went back for him and he agreed to go.
  20. Dundee Utd heavily invested in bringing in Cammy. It hasn't worked out for whatever reason. He was played in his preferred position and still fell down the pecking order after been given his chance. May be more to the personality of the player if it's not a lack of ability.
  21. Think that was for filming a BBC drama series.
  22. He said himself in interview pre-Aberdeen game he was contracted for another couple of years.
