I'm disappointed we have missed out on OWare  and Sibbald , exactly the kind of player we should be looking for and very much within our our budget , my hope is that Jack does us alright and sends a couple of decent loanees up for us to have a look at .

Josh Maja and Ethan Robson inbound

He's went to manage a league 2 side in England. Anybody not good enough to be in their squad will be well short of good enough for the SPFL Premier. Some people really do have an EXTRA low opinion of our national league.

I’m happy to avoid these players.  Lower end Championship types will get us nowhere in the league we are now in.

Can’t speak for Sibbald, but we were definitely in for O’Ware. Was pretty much a done deal until JR left.
 

 

He must have been the other player who was meant to sign the same time as McGinn , still if he wants to stay in the Championship shows his ambition .

Surely Linwood,  it's reasonable for the guy to want to wait until he finds out who the new manager was.

He has signed for a team in the same league as he currently plays , we could have been offering him the chance to play in the top league .So nothing to do with whoever the manager is  as you wrote its about testing himself against better teams , ie the ambition part.

I get what you are saying Linwood. All I am suggesting is that players need to feel secure,  that the manager wants them and that they get the longest contract tbey can.

So why sign for a Championship side rather than play in the Premiership.

Pod.  I get the argument that this might show a lack of ambition.  But... we don't know the personal terms involved. Players also like to work with managers who chose them to play to their strengths. Certainty in an uncertain profession must also be attractive.

More money???

My point exactly ---- "we don't know the personal terms involved."

I recall a then Rangers defender being sought by Motherwell with the line that he would play every week.

His reply was that it might come as a surprise to the interviewer but he was a professional football player - he went where the money was.

JR has recommended we sign Truro City goalkeeper Tom McHale according to the papers. 

The standard of National League South is way off the SPL, but then we are talking about an individual here. I haven't seen any Truro matches this season so I've got no idea how good he is but it would definitely be a major step up for him from what I have seen of Truro in the past.

I recall a then fanny that would make many pointless threads and never really got the fact we didn’t Sign O’Ware 

it might come as a surprise to some but this fanny was in fact a f**king mutant
