    There's something about his interview which doesn't ring true. No hard feelings? No fall outs?
    Leave aside his insistence in wrongly claiming he was sacked after 4 games.
    He claims he tried to sign "virtually all the players we are signing now" but then only mentions Kyle? Oran has signed 12 players since he arrived. Which of the others is he seriously claiming he tried to sign? Anton? Lyness? Hammill? Jackson? The group of guys from Eastern Europe? I don't buy any of that. Apart from anything else, he is, by definition, indirectly claiming Gus has done virtually nothing since he got in.
    Then you add Sutton's comments about snakes behind the scenes.
    Nah this bollocks is designed to get him in the shop window for the Hibs vacancy.

    Our eighth signing, that can't be correct. Didn't someone write that we wouldn't sign more than 3 or 4.

    Can you imagine if we sign anyone else. He'd implode, please OK, GM, TF and GLS one more signing

    We need to stop assuming that we are scraping the barrel just to get some guys in.
    Every single one of Oran's signings have been much better than what we had recently - Hammill, Ferdinand, etc.
    Some need time to get up to speed (e.g. Tansey) 
    So let's have even just a little faith that our Management Team are not incompetent - Looking forward, and having offloaded 16 players, there are not too many of them we would have wanted to keep... (We had no choice with Hammill). Haladky and Popescu really look the part. McAllister is one of ours who is a talent, and I think Lyons looks good too.
    Patience and hard work to bring in more is happening 24 7 at the moment - and picking a team, playing games and training as usual . . . 
    AND when this window closes - there will be other contracts to offer and deals to hunt out for over the summer. . .

    Are we aware that the Ebanks-Blake stuff is from one of these in the know agent accounts on Twitter, which is probably being run by some spotty little herbert in his bedroom?

    Would it surprise you to learn that in the close season 2018  Riga offered an english Div 2 player €7500 per week plus  paid accommodation, translator and driver or use of a club car ?
    I don’t know where the money comes from for these leagues but it does .

    Our issue is the risk of relegation really weakens  your chance of attracting a player committing long term. We have done well to tie the Hladky and Tansey beyond this season. 
    I am sure within the next week we will see some activity and I am fairly confident a striker is a high priority.

    I think Saturday showed we need someone to play as a defensive midfielder if we're going to start Lyons, McGinn and Tansey as our 3 midfielders in the centre of the park.

    Second half, Hodson went into midfield and we looked better, definitely letting them in behind our midfield less.

    If Hodson goes, I'd hope McLaughlin would go to left back and Ethan into that defensive midfield role.

    I'm not keen on picking out individual players. Each can make a mistake but as a group we need to be better at picking up runners.

    My thoughts on it are that if the referee thought it was a dive, why did he not continue play and have a word with the player. He had only booked him a few minutes earlier for a challenge. 
    It was so far out from goal, i couldnt see why he would want to go down, as if he beats his man, he has a chance of a shot on goal as the other defenders are pulled away from him with other players runs.
    You can clearly see from the replay the defender is showing his left shoulder out, waiting for Brad to get closer to him, then when he sees that he is going to continue his run by his open side (the defenders right), he puts his right shoulder in front to put up a block and prevent him getting by.  There is no simulation, clear contact. If he did play for the foul fair play, though weigh this up against Alloa player going down in the box 2nd half, waving his arms about in frustration, ref  waves play on. I've never understood this one. If you think he went down in the box and no penalty, could the player have dived to win a pen, therefore merit a booking?

    If we go down I think the Board see him as the man to rebuild the team.......again.

    You obviously can’t have spent much time in Cornwall 
    I reckon Cody will stay for the season. He seems to be the one who’s kept his head and worked his backside off to fight for his place where others have taken hissy fits or given up. He may not be the best, but Kearney has stated he needs players up for the fight, Cody has clearly shown he’s a fighter, and that attitude could go a long way for us. This battle to survive isn’t just physical, it’s mental too, and I reckon Kearney values that in Cody and will at least give him until the end of the season. Finding the net against Alloa can only help his chances. He may not be the best, I guess it’s like having Wardlaw again. Occasional goal, not brilliant but gives everything he can, and from Cody’s effort to prove himself to Kearney we could be seeing something similar.

    You are not expected to, it's your own choice and there is no long term commitment. I choose to use it now and again. I've renewed 3 times this season on a monthly basis, so £15 i've spent. What's that, the price on average of 4 extra pints in the pub this season. 
    I'm sure it will be reviewed end of season, though i do agree, maybe offering a 1-3 months free subscription to season ticket holders and free to annual St Mirren TV users, would be a good idea.

    I can see where you are coming from, though if he is one of the players we have monitored through our new vetting system, or at least done a bit of research on, there is nothing to say he's not worth having a look at.
    The difference this time round to what Stubbs had done, is we are not quickfire signing anyone without at least having some sort of knowledge of them.
