3 trailists currently with us supposedly

Good thing we don’t have a friendly to play them in again.

Do you happen to know who the trialist are. Chris Humphrey is supposedly on trial and a "Spanish winger" do you know his name and who the third one is

Humphrey had pace IIRC and that is something which we really need right now. No threat of pace means teams defend 10 yards further up the pitch and make it difficult for our midfield to create any space.

mmm

Humphrey is both proven at this level and is currently playing English non league football.

The fannies on this forum will have a hard time getting their heads round that one!

He's not currently playing any football, he's a free agent.

I'm imagining any trial is purely to prove fitness rather than ability which we know he was. He played very little football last season and it looks like it was through injury.

That looks like our usual intake. :whistle

How many wingers and midfielders do we want in this team, any chance we can get someone who can stick it in the net frequently?

We don't have many wingers in the squad. Flynn perhaps, who isn't quick. We need a natural wide player. Humphrey and Mikey Johnston are both exactly that.

We are severely lacking in pace at the moment.

A winger/forward with pace is an equally important acquisition as a goal scoring forward would be, otherwise we will have no "out"ball to take the pressure off the defence and we will be pegged back by other teams, as has been pointed out earlier in the thread.

You would have noticed, or maybe you didn't , just how important Lewis Morgan was to us last year, not just because of his goals, but because of his ability to put pressure on other teams and to make them defend and to put us on the offensive.

Any chance that you could show a bit of patience?<_<

I would struggle to get my head round Smith going on loan to Ayr.

From a season at the club that skooshed the Championship, to a move to a club newly promoted to that league? How does that aid his development?

He would be a good fit for us, and, I suspect, we would be a good fit for him.

Maybe Hearts don't want him going to a rival club.

Liam smith on loan would be a very good for for him and saints. Can't imagine he would want to head to Ayr in the championship instead of trying to play at a higher level and test himself further.

I am sure someone will ask tonight at q&a. He might not be someone on Stubbs radar but think he would be a valuable addition to the squad.

I just have this feeling that should John McGinn move on to Celtic for £2.5 million or so in the next few weeks then you will see a number of players of a pretty decent standard arriving at St Mirren.

I am not saying we are going to spend a large chunk of fee received but just think there will be some cash added to player pot for this season.

Suspect it would be good to have him back in the dressing room to.

Aye - spoke to him at the Bankhouse the night we won the league. Nice lad, and seems to have his head screwed on. There's no doubt that he really enjoyed his time at the club.

He would be a genuine asset.  I had hoped we could maybe wangle a permanent move for him.

As posted in the Liam Smith thread.... Naw..!

for all his good performances he crumbled against the more physical teams (Livi, Morton, Falkirk, Dun Utd, Dunfermline etc) last season, and we cannexpevt a lot more of the same physical game this season.

its telling Hearts don't fancy him, despite being light in that dept, and no one is throwing a cheeky bid in. Thanks for last season Liam, its not you.... we just need our space!

Excellent player that I believe would fit into an attacking, passing style of play. I had also hoped we made a move to sign Liam permanently.
