Remember Alves, Toure , Rankin a nd loads of others. Cowie was crap last year, age will not have improved him 

According to whom?

The majority of the hearts fans comments that I looked at weren't of that opinion.

I wouldn't exactly be overjoyed if we signed Cowie, but I could see the reasons why.

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.

Pretty sure that the owner of Ayr is a somewhat wealthy American and the club is a bit of a pet project for him. 

No need for them to sell if that's the case unless they get a daft offer. I'd consider a daft offer to be somewhere north of £150k but it depends what Ayr think.

There could be a release clause in his contract, however....

On the other hand, if Shankland has his head turned by a move to the Premiership, it'd be silly for the club to try to keep him as who knows how he'd perform next season. Get the cash in now and reinvest in the team. Even wealthy people know the value of a good deal, and losing a player for nothing when you could get £100k for him now is not a good deal. All academice until someone makes a bid I suppose.

I see that one of our discarded trialists from the Sunderland thrashing, Adil Nabi, who Dundee had jettisoned, but took back for another look, has signed a six month deal with them.

To be fair, he got less than 10 minutes when we were already 5 zip down, so we'll never know if he was any good.

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.

I reckon £50k max, but anything we get - on top of Stewart's wage off the wage bill - would be a bonus to be added to a fee or to wages for someone else. I'm sceptical that we're in for Shankland, but if we are, even £30k could be the extra cash needed to turn Ayr's head. Time will tell I guess, but Stubbs surely wouldn't have sold him if he didn't think it would be beneficial to him.

Smacks of desperation to me, and certainly will not give the step up Alan has promised

I would be genuinely flabbergasted if we were in the running to sign Shankland.

His stock is very high, and numerous clubs are on the hunt for a prolific goal scorer (including bigger clubs that would be willing to take a punt on the basis that he is not really proven above Championship level).

Know what, I wouldn't even be entirely surprised if Aberdeen are considering bringing him back.

Adil Nabi, one of Saturday's trialists, played a friendly for Dundee earlier in pre-season and is back training with them again today. McCann is having a very good look at him.

Might be playing against us in the first game of the season! 

Nabi has indeed signed for Dundee now. 6 month deal.

This is Ayr we are talking about- They interbreed - They will want £100000 +0 as they are all cross eyed

If he scores the winner on Saturday, Stubbs should resign, with anyone on the Forum who said he was shite consigned to the sin bin to put up with Return of Isma is God's latest expletive ridden homophobic rantings.

Was anyone expecting anything for Ross (no disrespect for the player).

Nope. If I'm being honest.

As things stand, we have no idea if we received anything, or, indeed, if he has even left.

Yep, looks like a desperate move, especially if they had initially rejected him.

Dundee also had a trialist striker, Stipe Plazibat, on trial who scored one and set up one against Falkirk in a bounce game.

They let him go.

Probably end up with us.:lol:

Just had a look at him on YouTube and although the calibre of defending is f**king awful he definitely knows where the net is. 

McCann apparently told him he wasn't needed as they were looking for a target man.
