Sutton will be lucky to get a Championship team but he might

Don't see why Sutton wouldn't get into another Championship side. His main quality has always been to score goals, not things like pace or skill so (like Boyd) he can still have another year or two. A team in dire need of goals would be silly to turn him down (wage demands aside). Dumbarton spring to mind but obviously they have to contend with the playoffs first. Someone like Ayr if they come up could find him useful, or QOTS if Dobbie left. He scored a decent amount of goals 2 seasons ago then lost his place after Reilly's goal scoring form and the arrival of Mullen. I think he can still do it in the Championship.

He has played in 20 games this season and scored 2 goals... (only 1 in the Championship, the other in the diddy cup) not the stuff of dreams...

He is a good trier, and was a much better player a few years ago... but it has caught up with him... he is slow, not great at control, not brilliant at being in the right place etc..

Only my opinion... but let's wait and see what offers he gets?

He looked done at St Johnstone when he was only getting sub appearances then hit the mark with us. Considering just about all his appearances are sub ones quoting 2 goals in 20 is a bit unfair. I think if he gets regular starts he can still bag 10 goals for someone in this league. As you say, we shall see what offer he gets...

He's ex Raith isn't he? He returned to Motherwell, returned to Saints...next stop Kirkcaldy!

7 to 9 players needed to come in according to JR on BBC site tonight with emphasis on physicality. And another first team coach.

 

Wonder if the coach might be Donati.

Pleased to hear he wants more physicality. Remember when we had managers with massive blind spots to the gaps in the squad? Massively frustrating. You just get the sense Jack sees the game exactly as you'd hope he would.

We had a team that could compete in the Championship, now we need one that can survive in the Premiership.

JR also said tonight he's not interested in just surviving. Get the feeling he may really go for it next season. Looking forward to a wee Europa League trip, I was too young / skint last time we made it.

I think you might be right about Donati as a coach.

While this is very open to perception it's not unreasonable.

IF he stays with us, you cannot underestimate the value of a good manager, which JR has shown, so far, to be.

Nothing is impossible, but putting us into the mix of the current top league I'd be overjoyed to survive easily with no relegation worries.

Obviously the transfer we should all be hoping for, arguably above all others, is a nice, swift, £3m switch for John McGinn. Imagine if he moved in July, we'd be able to do some proper planning.

Not that we should blow all the cash on transfers, but it'd be a nice boost.

I imagine Hibs might be looking for more than £3m.

Heard a rumour we might be talking to an agent who has European guys who want to play in the uk....

Reminded me of the 2 Dutch lads we had a few years ago and I suppose Stelios more recently...

I don't know anything more than this - and it is JUST a rumour...
