If we are in the SPL and Dundee Utd can still offer him a better financial package they really are a team about to implode from debt, its nuts (if we were even interested)

My thoughts entirely. They must be heavily in debt having thrown a lot to try and win promotion. Surely we can compete plus PL football too.

It's all well and good them offering him a big wedge of cash, what he needs to decide is how long they'll be able to continue to pay it to him every week.

More money in the 2nd tier VS Job security in the Big Time...Nicky's call I suppose.

Cancel the speculation thread until further notice.

We won't know if we will still have our manager until the beginning of June and players are hardly going to commit themselves to St Mirren until the situation is resolved one way or another.

Meantime, during this period of limbo, other clubs are acting to build for next season.

Our balloon is well and truly burst!

Jack Ross's job at St Mirren is a work in progress (in his own words) but someone else will probably  have to complete it, but only after other teams have acted.

Think we'll know the answer by next week. :(

Halkett plays in the centre of a back three at Livingston. He’s been great but is he mobile enough to play in a 2 man central defence?

I’ve seen Kane Hemmings mentioned as a possible loan target but it seems that Hibs may be interested in him as well.

I do get that based on when he was with Rangers but I thought he was pretty decent in the games he played with United. Anyhoo it's academic we are doing hee haw.

The club certainly are not doing hee haw in relation to potential signings.

I agree... We tend to go about our signing business quietly.  I feel that there are signings on the way but to announce them would be unfair to Livvy and Thistle as they approach tonight and Sunday's play off games.  Our interest in Holt though looks to be an open secret.

The practicalities of that do intrigue me. How do we know these new "club" signings will fit in with the new managers plans and style of play? It's normally the new manager that would want to call the shots and be looking for a budget to bring his guys in. No? I am assuming you think we might have put out a few very tentative feelers rather than had any serious chats about money and contract length. The target signings would presumably want to know the identity of the new manager just in case he is a roaster which means the club's that can talk turkey right now might nab these guys before we can firm up? Not ideal but hopefully resolved very soon.

As is our interest in Halkett and McGinn so no that quietly.

Been really impressed with Scott Pittman watching him v Dundee Utd and now Partick the guy works his socks of got abit of quality and can score goals for a midfielder

On the subject of raiding Livi, we were linked with Josh Mullin at Christmas and I think there's something about him. Scored against the Arabs, made the goal last night.

He's not the finished article but I think he's got promise.

Dundee United and ST Mirren are trying to sign Clark according to the local Dundee paper. 

I was going to fire in there and say "Exactly and what chance have we got as he would know who the manager is at United" Then I remembered it's Csaba ....
