  1. Called the top 6 and bottom 6 spot on... Shame about the order but oh well
  2. Not surprising to be fair, Gowser leaving will free up a big wage. Let's hope we use it wisely!
  3. If it was either Carey or Harkins... CAREY PLEASE!!! Although I don't want either back.
  4. Agreed, Williams is a decent keeper. The rest though....
  5. Millers just got promoted, Conor will be a Championship player next season
  6. Yep. He wanted to be on the same wages as Thommo, Teale and Goody. He was rightly laughed out of court and released, however the Saintees made him one of their highest earners. Unsurprisingly they've released him at first opportunity. If he was half as good as he thought he was he might be a useful player, he isn't though.
  7. Source for this? Take a look at the squad list. Who do you think is ICT's top earner?
  8. Indeed, and we should have a larger budget than Dundee next season. The reason we went with youth this season was because our big money players were such a disaster.
  9. We have the smallest budget in the league?! Who's telling you this? McGregor and McGowan are eminently replaceable. Indeed I'd offer both reduced contracts and if they are refused I'd release them.
  10. Who's it rankling with? Both McGregor and McGowan had poor seasons IMO. If either or both leave I won't be overly concerned, we could and should be able to get better replacements in.
  11. I don't think he made any secret of his desire to play in England next season, can't really blame him either.
  12. Indeed, there's only 4 players in our history who've scored winning goals in major cup finals, and he's 1 of them.For that alone he is a legend.
  13. The Beeb confirm that Newton, Djemba-Djemba, Campbell and Magennis won't be returning next season. No surprises really, Conor was the only one who was a regular and I think we will replace him easily.
  14. Are you really comparing a player proven at international level and at the top level in England to Gary Harkins?
  15. Great guy and a very good player in his pomp. It's the right time for him to move on though. I felt his best games for us came in the double winning season of 05/06 and in the season immediately after we came up. It was no surprise when Hibs came in and made him an offer we couldn't match. Will be remembered most for his place in the cup winning team though. He made a fantastic block with his em... Upper thigh... Very near the end of the final, game saving and trophy winning moment right there.

  17. Worth a punt. Not too long ago he was the main man in the national team and he's just turned 31. For all the reasons you just stated I can't imagine he's in a position to demand a high wage.
  18. See McFadden has been released by the Well. Definitely worth a look IMO.
  19. Yet more great news for our union. The nationalists just can't get any momentum going, and the reason for that is simply there is no case for independence. Can't wait for September so we can vote no and put this behind us once and for all.
  20. He isn't proven at this level though.
  21. If you look at the top level of football these days, very few teams play possession football. The era of it seems to be over. Look at Chelsea v Atletico, both teams spent most of the tie trying to give the other team possession so they could win it back and counter. Real beat possession playing Bayern easily by picking them off on the counter, just like Bayern had done to Barca the year before. I'd like us try to play that way. To do so we need some flying wingers on either flank, Wylde could be one and hopefully we bring in another in the summer.
  22. Speaking of aliases anyway, who are you on PNB?!
  23. As there's English interest in him, there's no chance he will be playing for us next season.
  24. Think that's confirmation bias there. If we had the worst goals against in the league but the best goals for would you be blaming our attackers? That's the point I'm making regarding Motherwell. They scored 25 more goal than us but conceded 2 more. If only we had the Motherwell forward players!
