Maybe, just think we have other priorities, strikers, full back cover, centre half and left sided midfielder should all come in before another central midfielder. We currently have McGinn, Magennis, Flynn and Willock in there, who are four of our best players.

Maybe Stubbs has been talking to Levein and we're gonna play the 4-6 formation with no need for strikers?

I don't know Humphrey's level of fitness having not seen him play or train, do you know it?

That's very evident given the uninformed drivel that you posted.

Humphrey had an op on his shin not long after he joined PNE from Hearts. Unfortunately it hasn't healed properly, which has impacted on his general fitness and his subsequent less than stellar performances in the past few seasons.

Consider yourself informed.:wink:

As far as I am aware, we haven't knowingly given any players a contract, with that type of fitness problem.

Cowie would be a strange one given the current balance of the squad. I can't imagine we will sign him. 

Had a quick look at a Heart's forum and the general consensus, apart from a couple of the usual roasters, is that Cowie is a great influence both on and off the park, works really hard and is fit as a "butcher's dug". A steadying influence in midfield.

He might seem a bit of a luxury, but I've already stated my reasons as to why he might be signed.

I do agree that a couple of strikers need to be signed very quickly.

I don't doubt that Cowie would be a decent signing. Played at a good level and if he played 30+ games in midfield last year then he's obviously keeping himself in shape. I'd be surprised however if we signed a guy of that pedigree as a squad filler, so would expect that Willock or Flynn would be pushed down the pecking order if we were to sign Cowie.   

In other circumstances that would maybe be okay but given that Stubbs is already working under budget constraints then I think it would be a bit odd to sign him.

I'm sure I heard it would take at least £500.000 to prise him away from Somerset, we must be awash with cash!!!

Like those that he has publicly said are lacking fitness and are not up to speed. Jezzo do some folk not listen to and read things that the club put out into the media?

Do you believe everthing you hear and read on the media. :unsure:  Marquee signings.

You've been reading Bazil on here. We got around £300k for last season's player of the year in the championship. £100k would swing it.

Cowie would help to balance the squad. Experienced, and has played at a decent level. If fit and motivated (and not costing the earth) he would be a decent acquisition. His age isn't a huge issue - remember Tam Turner and Andy Milne (among others)? They did okay for us in the latter stages of their careers.

Surely we would be doing well to get much more than £20 - 30K for Stewart (no disrespect to the player)?

I doubt that would add much in terms of a fee or sign-on sweetener for a player.
