  1. Cammy M going out on loan I’ve heard.
  2. I also see him as a number 10 these days as opposed to a winger as he has lost a bit of pace and also he has the ability to see, and execute, high tariff passes hence being highest assister for goals last season. Better to be central to use that ability to it’s maximum. He needs to add a greater consistency to his game and we have a ready made replacement for Jamie albeit very different in styles and the other two in midfield would have to be adapted to suit.
  3. Not saying they shouldn’t count at all. That’s just daft. They are your words not mine. You clearly haven’t understood my meaning but that’s ok. My point is simply that to gauge the quality of the striker, as a top flight striker, compare him with his peers in the amount of goals scored/goals per game in the top flight where it is hardest to score. A player could score three against five teams from lower leagues in cup competitions and score two all season in the top league. Stats will show they scored 17 but when you delve into it, clearly they are not top flight standard as they struggle to score at the highest level. However, strikers are and should be judged on more than goal return in the modern game.
  4. I don’t really care what the previous poster said to be honest, but league goals are how top flight strikers should be judged as heightening goals per season record when playing against lower league oppo gives a false impression. By the way, not having a go at obika. We have a lot to thank him for, but we haven’t had a 10+ league goals a season player on the top flight since thommo and obika was not the long term answer. Most teams outside the top two don’t generally have a 10+ goals a season player.
  5. League goals in two seasons was 13. So averages at 6.5 goals a season in the league.
  6. I’d take Mallan in a heartbeat.
  7. Here here. Fully expect Motherwell to be garbage this year. Beaten in a friendly by Dumbarton with a hunner trialists. They are struggling at the moment to pull a squad together after more than two thirds of their squad left at end of last season. All fine and well giving season tickets away for nothing but just won’t work for if we want a chance of progression. For those moaning, go buy your season ticket and stop bumping yer gums. In fact, try and recruit one other to buy one as well. Cmon.
  8. Don’t need a right full back. We have the following that can play/have played there: Fraser Tait Finlayson Flynn MacPherson Budget better used in forward areas.
  9. On what planet has Ethan not been, apart from a few games where his levels have dropped which is going to happen with young players, one of our success stories of the season? Anyone who can’t see that needs their head read.
  10. Did we negotiate a sell on when selling him to Ross County? Seems seal done around £300,000 to Sunderland. I would hope we have a 50% sell on or at least 30% like meatball.
  11. Bloody hell. I think of saints signed Messi there would be some folk saying “that’s shite”......”he’s very one footed”......” he is past his best”. JDH was an unknown and look how his signing has transformed us. Maybe Brophy is another missing piece of the jigsaw. Players and clubs sometimes just go together. We won’t know if it will work until he is given a fair crack. End of story. However, the makings are there and that’s why we have went out and got him.
  12. Have to agree. Good money if we can use it well.
  13. Hoping that one of the others that Jim is talking to in LOI is this lad Daniel Mandroiu
  14. Jordan Jones on loan maybe?? Be a great addition if it was but Killie more likely perhaps If let out on loan. Rangers probably looking for permanent.
  15. Looks to have two great feet, powerful shot, quick, hard to knock off the ball. Goal at 4.10 into this video is class. High hopes. Love that we do our business behind the scenes these days.
  16. Contract ends 30.6.2020. Therefore can sign PCA in January 2020.
  17. Paul Smyth at QPR signed 1 year extension and likely to go out on loan. Linked with him before window opened. Possible other wide player we were waiting on down the food chain.
  18. It would appear the team that billy mehmet played for in India and the team Duffy played for are in the same league(Not accounting for relegations/promotions in the interim period).Mehmet 7 goals in 16 games. Duffy 32 goals in 49 games. Duffy 0.65 goals per game over a longer period than Mehmet's 0.44 goals per game. Give the bloke a chance given many would have been happy with Mehmet returning.
  19. Too big a step for Aberdeen to gamble on Ross. With their new backer some cash will be getting spent in Aberdeen.
  20. I calculate Tom Hendrie league win rate in 1.5 seasons in championship as 55-56%. 63% in championship winning season. GIRUY Rae.
  21. Season 15/16 Played 16 Points 12 Season 15/16 Played 26 Points 28 Season 16/17 Played 16 Points 10 Season 16/17 Played 26 Points 30??? Next 10 games: Home games Ayr (h) 3 points Morton (h) 3 points QoTS (h) 3 points Falkirk (h) 1 point Dundee Utd (h) 1 point Hibs (h) 0 points Away games Dundee Utd (a) 0 points Dunfermline (a) 3 points Dumbarton (a) 3 points Ayr (a) 3 points Total 20 points taking us to 30.
