Speculation Thread

Recommended Posts

FFS, I believe Jack Ross and Gordon Scott are serious when they talk of at least attempting to get a team together to challenge for the top 6.  The likes of Tam O Ware and Rickie Lamie will be nowhere near that team!  They just finished 7th in the Championship!

If we're going to sign a Championship central defender it should be Craig Halkett from Livingston.

He's out of contract at the end of May and some compensation would be due to Livvy but I've no idea how much.

Just checked - he'll be 23 in May so if I've read the regulations righ:rolleyes: none will be required.

Didn't we take Tommy Turner from the great unwahed and was he not their captain.. was a pretty good player for us too.....  (played 116 times and scored 9 goals)

I'm sure we signed Tommy from Thistle.

As the season ends the speculation bazaar begins.  Let us march forward, shrugging off old mistakes and proudly stepping into a new, bright future.

 

So

 

Whats Dougie Imrie up to these days?

 

Maybe a bit long in the tooth now but in his heyday was a decent Bottom 6 player - never worth a transfer fee though.

This is the sort of left-field bonkers summer transfer rumour I think we can all get behind.

Can see this happening given the relationship Ross and Rogers has. Would be a fantastic signing exciting to watch also . Can see Ross putting a good team together with pace up front .

Aye, mebbes but given a choice between Hayes and a certain trophy-laden young winger now on Celtic's books, I know who I'd prefer.

I'd take punt on bringing back Shankland or Hardie every single time over bringing Goodwillie anywhere near our club.

Obviously Jack bombed both of them out last January, but they both showed a lot of focus and aptitude this season. Maybe the jump from L1 to Premiership would be too much for Lawrence, admittedly, but I'm more making a point about Goodwillie, anyway.

A fit Shankland will score goals at most levels if he gets the service, problem is that at Premier level the service will be sparse and we will need people willing to bust a gut to assist the team and it's not a natural asset in his game. Hardie is a strange one though, scores plenty of goals and usually looks to have all the things Jack would like in a player, however never showed that appetite with us despite him showing it everywhere else.

On the quote from Jack Ross regarding the released players he says "With regards adding to the squad the recruitment process is well under way and to expect some news on that by the end of this week".

He had also said (on Radio Clyde I think) that he was looking at 7-9 players for next season.

From the Website (without the photo)

St Mirren Football Club can confirm that Stelios Demetriou, John Sutton, Gary Irvine, Massimo Donati, Josh Todd, Darryl Duffy, Darren Whyte and Nathan Flanagan will leave the club following the expiry of their contract, while Lewis Morgan, Mark Hill and Liam Smith will all return to their parent clubs as their loan deals come to an end. 

Jack Ross said: "I'd personally like to show my appreciation for the players' effort - not just during this season - but my tenure as a whole. I wish them all the best for the future. In terms of adding to the squad, the recruitment process is well underway and we hope to have some news on that front later this week." 

We can also confirm that Conor O'Keefe, Evan Horne, Andrew McDonald, Robbie Leitch, Dylan McKendry and Chris Henry will also depart from the St Mirren U20s.  

So we are letting 11 seniors go and signing 7-9 ----- don't think so   unless he is not counting loan signings...

17 folk away already and who knows what will happen with some others..

Hope the "7-9" Jack is talking about are guys who are really strong Premiership class - that is what we really need.....  TOP 6 would be amazing...

I see what your saying he definitely did say 7-9 somewhere hopefully you are right and he meant 7-9 quality SPL ready players.

To those advocating signing the likes of O'Ware and or Lamie from Morton...absolutely not.

We need to be doing more along the lines of what Motherwell have done, signing guys like Hartley and Kipre or even following our own example and signing someone like Davis.

As I've said elsewhere, if we ARE going to sign a Championship defender it should be Halkett from Livingston who is OOC at the end of May and was one of the best CDs in the league.

I would suspect that we are looking at 4-5 starters and the balance in squad players. If you look at who actually left there are only a couple of players that made a real contribution to the squad over the season in that lot from a permanent point of view. Obviously Morgan will be the big miss from a loan signing, but would like to think that there are clubs who will look at the development of players under Jack who will think that we are a good place to send quality youngsters to develop.

Who are the 11 seniors who have played a significant number of games for Saints this season?

As far as I  can see only Stelios, Sutton and Irvine have reached double figures match-day squad appearances. The loanees will , of course, return to their parent clubs. Leaving them aside it looks like only 3 squad members are being released.

The line I have highlighted is yours - I never said that - I said we are letting 11 Seniors go,- they are seniors because the were listed on the website as 1st Team Squad not youth etc.
