    Glad to hear player contract chat last night. I think more and more, players are getting better advice on their careers, still not a majority but it's going in the right direction. Yes football is a short career but it doesn't mean jumping at the first sniff of more money is the right move and there is merit to build your game at teams like St Mirren. How many times do we see players jump from us to a Scunthorpe United or Grimsby town only to near fully fall off the map?
    I know not all of their contracts are up but Doyle-Hayes, Connolly, Durmus, McGrath, McCarthy etc have had a really good season so far here and no doubt other teams will be circling, I think they could make a lot poorer decisions than another couple years development at St Mirren.

    I dislocated shoulder can take a few months to recover from. Just as we hit a good bit of form again, we lose a few key players. 
    Hopefully big Quaner is not too far away from a return to give us another option further up the field.

    I personally think the club may wait till we get to a certain number of points on the table,  that are based on previous seasons as safe enough to finish above bottom two. I don't think we are too far away from that and could possibly had said amount of points by end of Feb if we take advantage of the amount of home fixtures we have.

    Caused every team problems we have came up against. Very few players can match his pace and his determination to keep the ball. 
    He has been a huge asset and adds something we have not had for quite sometime. 
    The assist last night was a great example of what he is capable of on his day.

    I will eat my words. What a sensational performance last night. Did not look out of place after being out so long. I'd keep him in the starting lineup for Saturday.

    Worst affected in what terms? Financially because they are paying players £££ daft money, spunked £2-3m on a champions league pyro display a couple of seasons ago, spending reportedly 250k on a trip to Dubai, the list goes on. They thought they were going to walk the league this season now they are crying wolf.

    There's not a lot of options for him just now though. He's not going to get an English Championship gig yet and English league 1 and league 2 can't actually offer more than us now due to their wage cap. The SPFL is a far better platform than English 3rd or 4th tier now that the equaliser of them offering more money is not an option. 
    A 3 year deal in the middle of a pandemic would be sensible for him. Puts him in shop window and secures us long term.

    If this comes off then it would be a major coup for us IMO. Someone like Brophy is the closest we could get to star name coming to us. Mid 20s and capped by Scotland - we don't have many others like that on our books

    We are showing real and realistic ambition here and it should be applauded

    29 goals in 70 starts for Kilmarnock. The only non OF player in Scotland outwith Brophy with a better record over last 3 seasons is Sam Cosgrove. 
    His scoring record is good. We are never going to be able to attract proven 20 goals a season types, especially current internationals and guys in their early to mid 20s so I'm not sure what you expect in a signing. Brophy ticks a lot of boxes and strengthens out front line without a doubt. 
    A signing that most of us thought would have his pick of clubs outwith the OF and he's picked us. I mean it just goes to show that some fans are impossible to please.

    But we are all sure, that he could’ve and he would’ve if he’d needed to.
    Aren’t we?  
     
    Also... I should have given more credit for Erwin’s header.  
    It showed excellent skill - he was running at pace beyond the line yet glanced it back and right through a slim window of opportunity. Excellent.

    I think we have a squad that is finally starting to click with the changes and additions we have made.

    Doyle-Hayes and Erhahon are keeping other really good players out of the team with their solid defensive and playmaking in the middle of the park.
    Connolly has given us that pace we lacked and has been a complete menace to opposition
    Durmus' return on the other side
    A recognised left-back in Mason
    Taits freedom to bomb forward
    *McGrath's freedom to play behind the striker and cause a goal threat
    Every single player is keeping their place on merit and the dropping of other players has been completely justified with a few just been unlucky to good form.

    We have an even better chance of reaching the final now than we did back in 2013. 

    I am so proud of the team and have to credit Jim for turning this around on a magnificent run, where he could have potentially been on a shaky peg previously. Players now starting to gel has given me hope that we can finish the season strong with the addition of another striker.
