Speculation Thread

FFS mate it's the speculation thread, not the 'name anyone who is out of contract thread'.

There should at least be a wee bit of substance or reason behind it

People have been quoting Carlos Cuellar... and you want substance behind paddy mccourt??

In fairness, I think the speculation thread was always intended as a bit of a free for all, allowing for random suggestions and wish lists as opposed to rumours that might or might not have substance to them.

Injured most of last season, starting to decline now? Kept out of the team post split at Motherwell's most critical stage of the season. Likely a very high wage as well ...

Pass.

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.

Worth a one year contract as long as he wasn't asking for ridiculous wages, he's one of those players that's capable of the odd bit of outrageous goal scoring or creating, and could well be a good investment.. don't think it'll happen but I wouldn't mind us taking a chance.

My bruv works in Lanarkshire , surrounded by 'well supporters. They can't wait to se the back of McFadden , doesn't cut it on a regular basis apparently. Harkinsesque if you ask me !

Says who?

Says me.

Oh, and the OP....

Ladies/Gents

My calls for a speculation section so far have been unanswered!

I think we need a special section for the questions such as

Who should we sign?

Who would you like us to sign?

What players are currently free and looking for a club and may do a job for St Mirren?

There IS a place for speculation, we ALL like to do it and thus far this forum does not really allow us to do it without comments (from people like me) such as "thats not a rumour".

So please speculate here (and if you believe in such a section then maybe the mods will see it too) and it may make the rumour mill slighty more credible!

I shall start

Goalkeeper...I would love us to go for Jamie Langfield

Defence......Keep Will Haining

Midfield.....Marcus Niculae now that he has been released?

Striker....Leigh Griffiths?

I think it does need to be calmed down a bit. A lot of players we may like to see in Black and white but it would help if people only posted links to players with a bit of substance. Otherwise it gets a bit pointless.... Carles Puyol is a free agent you think he'd fancy it if we gave him free passes to Furys on a Saturday night?

Thus far, it has pretty much consisted of players released by, or who have left other SPFL clubs, so hardly pie in the sky stuff - Vernon, Carey, McCourt, McFadden etc. Maybe not terribly likely, but pretty harmless for all that, no?

Are you really comparing a player proven at international level and at the top level in England to Gary Harkins?

Tbh I think the Furys passes could swing any potential signings for us.

Aye but we all know who's getting released someone saying 'James McFaddens away would we sign him?' Isn't a ground breaking post, its not a rumour St Mirren are interested in him, no one is sitting thinking 'You know I never thought about that wow James McFadden.' Clues in the name The Rumour Mill. If someone hears a rumour that McFadden or Carey came to St Mirren park over the weekend I'd post that, that at least gives food for thought. The thread isn't 'Who's just been released by an SPFL club for people that are to lazy to look at Sky Sports News and do we think he'd be a good player for St Mirren thread' Maybe we should start that up?
