Speculation Thread

Recommended Posts

Chris Burke? :lol:

He's played like every game for Cardiff since he moved down there and they've been in the playoffs twice in two seasons. I'm pretty sure he's not ready to leave that career for a move to St. Mirren.... :blink:

With Gavin Rae I think there's slightly more of a chance of us being realistically interested, but I'd be really surprised if he came here. If he's coming to Scotland it'll be with Aberdeen.

The Grant Hanley deal is a good shout, I'd thought about it a few times, but haven't really heard much about him other than Levein rates him highly. He's been getting some game time this year too, but they might like to see him go out on loan for experience - and I'd be disappointed if we never made an enquiry. Whether he'd have better options remains to be seen, but I doubt we'd be the most attractive option :(

Seriously? :o Must have been him not wanting to re-sign because he plays all the time and Dave Jones loves him. Must have an offer from a bigger team or something. He's not gonna come back to the SPL anyway!

Burke was never offered a contract. Same with Bothroyd. Must be some severe cut backs after failing in the play offs two years running.

Well Higdon won't be going to Hearts as they have signed John Sutton instead. Maybe Motherwell will make an offer for the big scouser ?

i was thinking the same, i hope higdon stays but i cant see it to be honest.

Im led to believe that there is a good chance that Higdon is staying with us and also that another striker will be joining us who is still very young and has SPL experience although not a great goalscoring record. Although I must say whenever I have seen him I have been pretty impressed although I'm keeping the name under my hat meantime. This is all on top of Thompson signing! All looking good for next season :D

Sounds like a description of Nigel Hasselbaink. If it is he would be an ideal replacement for Dargo, very similar style. wink.gif

Has Gallacher been offered one or two years by us? Only reason i could see him going to them instead of resigning here.

he's probably only been offered a 1 year deal with us so it wouldnt suprise me if he went there.

How raging would Chris Smith be if Gallagher did go to the Pars. Someone taking your job twice.

i hope gallacher stays, i think he is a big player for us. have you heard anymore updates on contract talks mougie, higdon or travner?
