S. McGinn seems to have fallen out of favour at Wycombe. 3 appearances in the past 4 months and they've all come in the Football League Trophy. Still has 18 months to run on his contract though.

Ex-teammate of Jack Ross....

Suppose you will do anything to get regular football he would need to take  huge wage cut. Who knows. Thought Ross mentioned he was looking for a striker ?

Obviously McGinn has been playing at a higher level than we have for the past couple of years and is a talented player,but I'm not over enthused about signing a player whose career has been hampered by injuries and probably won't be match fit.

However, any signing we make at this stage in the season is a bit of a risk.

To be honest, with all the new faces, bringing in a player we are all familiar with might be a good move. If it is McGinn as suggested, he is fondly remembered by many of us (I can still vividly picture his shot sailing into the net when he scored against Rangers at Love St). That'll be a good base to start on. He also has experience and this will help the young lads in the midfield - assuming we have any left come the end of the month.

I'd be very happy with a return for the elder McGinn. Though it would be appreciated if someone could clarify if he has any association with a former Celtic chairman.

Stephen's lack of games and injuries are of concern to me. If we are getting the Stephen that left us then he would be a great signing.

Big Kirk would also be a great signing. Leader and decent central defender.

Obviously the Rang*rs (RIP) winner was great.

But my favourite was his goal against C*ltic at Darkhead. As it was late on I thought it might be the winner and the celebrations that followed left me with a badly gashed shin.

And then feckin' Riordan came on as a sub and equalised. The resultant injured shin was all in vain...

You mean this goal ? About 4 minutes in .

A roar and atmosphere at Love St , I've never heard at the new ground in our soulless stadium.

Superb.

We had been piss-poor in the lead up to that game, and they were flying. I was convinced we were going to be on the end of a hiding.

The players were absolutely brilliant that afternoon, throwing themselves in front of everything. We were sat behind the goal and had a great view of the strike. Many (self included) were screaming to McGinn to pass it through to Dargo. McGinn had other ideas. The rest, as they say, history.

Fantastic memories.

Fergus McCann denied they were related IIRC.

Um this guy ain't match fit

Neither are most of our signings as none of them are getting any regular football at their clubs. It's a burden we have to bear to get folk in at level we want, that some will take 2 or 3 games to get sharp. Thankfully, the 4 new lads we signed last week should be getting up to speed now and the two guys from this week will follow suit.

Mcginn would be a decent signing but don't see what he would bring to the team that we don't already have. Do we halt the development of Magennis to slot him in? He hasn't developed into a goal scorer so wouldn't want him to replace Mallan.

Quinn, Magennis, Storie, Todd, Fjelde all midfielders. Would be looking for the budget to get spent on a decent winger that knows how to cross a ball.

Glad you posted that , I couldn't find it.

It epitomises teamwork. I've always said ( like most of you ) it's not a defeat we mind so much , it's the manner of the defeat. If the boys put in a good honest shift & lose ? I've no issue with that.

Just show us some effort & we will support you week in week out.

That's what that picture says to me, brilliant :)

Now , about this speculation ? I'd say all normal rules are out the 'window' ( pardon the pun ) this is going to be an interesting end to the transfer window for sure , let's just hope it translates into points on the board.

Yet the supporters forced Gus out.

Todd is an attacking midfielder, plays wide or behind the striker. So that really just leaves the other 4 for the 2 central midfield roles.

Fjelde also plays in defence, just takes one of the full backs to get injured or a central defence crisis. Quinn is injury prone.

There is also the option to play 3 in central midfield.

I can see a role for McGinn.

If available, grab him before the opposition.

Jack Ross in the interview on the OS saying he's still looking to strengthen defensively. Not sure if it's a rightback or a centre-half he's looking for - or both if we get Watson!

I still think we could do with another attacking player too.

Is there still talk of us possibly looking to bring Watson in?
