    kevo_smfc got a reaction from Isle Of Bute Saint in Speculation Thread   
    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.

    There really are no diets which will work because they are all about avoiding and repressing the cause of over-eating.
    The first thing to do when losing weight is therefore to fix the underlying cause of why you are over-eating.
    The second thing is to reduce portion sizes. That is probably the second biggest issue.
    The third thing is to cut out the things which are clearly bad for you in any dosage and start eating healthier food e.g. cut out pies and have some stir fry instead.
    The final thing is to get a bit more exercise than you are currently doing. Doesn't need much.
    You don't need anything with "Light" or "Diet" or "Low calorie" on it. Eating that stuff is a f**king miserable existence.
    You can eat what you want as long as you just have a reasonable portion of it.
    None of this is brain surgery but people still piss their money down the drain when it comes to nonsense like gym membership and Weight Watchers.

    He's a traitor for bettering himself with a higher profile job and financial security for his family? This opportunity may never have came round again if he flopped in the Premier League this season with us. Whether you agree with or not, Sunderland have the infrastructure of an English Premier League club, have plied their trade in that league for many of years, have the stadium, the fan base etc etc and have a re-building job on their hands to take them back there. I for one do not hold a grudge for all of the above. I am just thankful for the good times Jack James provided for our club, winning the league, giving us our club back and bringing that unity between fans, players, management and board. Though here we find ourselves having a debate over how loyal he should be and how shite our fans are for going to a Sunderland game. Dear oh dear.

    Traitor? f**king hell get a grip 
    Only a die-hard Saints fan would have rejected that opportunity. And I daresay many die-hard Saints fans would have actually taken the chance of 5x your current salary instead of staying in a job that would have become high-risk in a league with plenty of bigger fish. Jack’s stock was unlikely to ever be higher, and this was his chance to try and make it to bigger things. If you seriously consider him a “traitor” then football just isn’t for you. I presume Lewis Morgan, Kenny McLean, John McGinn and Stevie Mallan are all traitors too. Actually add Stephen McGinn to that list too as he abandoned us once.

    No wonder we are known to opposition fans as St. boo If a minority of our fans have nothing to moan about on a daily basis, they are not content.
    What an embarrassment that this is even a debate. It's nobody else's business what people decide to do with their time. Even more so that the bus load of people who made the trip to Sunderland, travel the country following St. Mirren week by week.
    I personally don't know why people are so hung up on the idea that JR is a traitor. Very short memories indeed.

    The goalkeeper trained with us all week before signing.
    Lyons trained with us Thurs & Friday.
    The two Slovakian lads both trained and played in a bounce game yesterday.
    I believe Gus has also been out to see players in Eastern Europe, as is his remit.
    I don't think we're signing players blind.
    There's never any guarantees though, particularly bringing players in from outside of Scotland. Every signing is a risk!

    9 this season.
    And I actually saw him in one of them. ***1-1 draw with Bohemians Prague back in August***
    Can't say I really paid much attention to him. I follow Bohemians over here.
    But, that probably is not a bad thing if a Goalie doesn't catch your eye.  ie, he didn't make any blunders.
    From what I read over here, he was always the back up keeper. N'Guyen is there number one. 
    Hladky was at Liberec for 4 seasons.
    9 matches this season (Lost his place when N'Guyen came back from injury)
    17/18     15 games
    16/17      2 games
    15/16       5 games

    Here is a link to the match I was at. Just scroll down through the match report and press play on the video. (First video is the full highlights)
    A couple of decent saves from Hladky. Make your own mind up about the goal. I think he didn't do too much wrong though.
     
    Also, a certain Milan Baros was his team mate a couple of seasons ago (16/17)

    Aberdeen signed Cerny allowing Rogers to come to us as they had two experienced keepers. Makes sense they are in no rush to take him back if he is 3rd choice.

    Because we have wanted the Czech guy since before Xmas (according to the player himself on Liberec's website, we tried to get him in before Xmas but couldn't get an agreement to bring him over) . Meaning that if all went to plan, we knew he was coming in regardless. 
    The 2nd choice would have then been between Rodgers and Lyness. At a guess, we'd have preferably opted for Lyness staying (given he'd risen to first choice) but probably couldn't break the loan deal off with Rodgers going back up north meaning we have to keep him for rest of the season. So with one goalie they couldn't move on and a goalie they knew they definitely  wanted coming in, they weren't in a position to offer Lyness anything. Which makes sense of what Oran said when Lyness was released.

    Rogers - Question marks over him being the new no1 or if he would be happy to stay to deputise a new no1 incoming
    Anton - Would love him to stay, though the ball is in his court.
    Kpekawa, will either find a club or we will most likely do what we had to do with King and mutual termination
    Eckersely - Doesn't seem to be near first team for some reason. Possibly leaving too?
    GMack - On the road to recovery. Very useful player when fit. I'd like to think he can chip in with contribution with the season run in.
    Flynn - Used sparingly, though may have a place in the team. Unsure on if OK would keep him or not due to his lack of game time to date.
    Kellerman - Looks like he may have a chance to impress. Can't play for a 3rd team this season either.
    Cody Cooke - Worked extremely hard to get himself into the managers plans. Seems to pick up a few niggles though. Uncertain whether he will stay or go?
    Smith - From online reports, his departure is imminent, with Dundee utd looking like his likely destination

    I think it’s LPM who’s claimed we can only sign 2-3 players this month because we have no money left apparently.
