Yeah two months so far, hey my bad. What a colossal mistake. Hopefully his next game will be for some other poor f**kers. Which could be more than two and half months when it comes round!

ARITHMETIC LESSON

2 1/2 months  =  10 or 11 weeks (Some months have 5 Saturdays to play football on)

From the 27th Nov until 22nd Jan  = 7 weeks

So you are only 3 or 4 weeks out on a time scale of 7 weeks

Don't try and be accurate with any of your claims - it generate much joy at your stupidity    :withstupid

Depends what Kearney wants. Considering we were apparently interested in Ralston, I reckon Hodson must be on decent wedge and Kearney is looking to cut the wage bill in that respect. Either that or he is considering this guy as a left back.

He wouldn't be replacing Hodson - he hasn't been playing at RB that has been McGinn

I think Saturday showed we need someone to play as a defensive midfielder if we're going to start Lyons, McGinn and Tansey as our 3 midfielders in the centre of the park.

Second half, Hodson went into midfield and we looked better, definitely letting them in behind our midfield less.

If Hodson goes, I'd hope McLaughlin would go to left back and Ethan into that defensive midfield role.

I was just pointing out that you rounded up a month and a half to two and a half months. I'd suggest that an uninjured player whose been out for six or seven weeks will regain full fitness faster than one who's been out for the ten or 11 weeks you were suggesting.

Potatoes/Potato....

it is two months since he got 55 mins, and before that he hadn't been a regular for a couple of months. I have no idea what you are on about re an injured player?

But that’s always going to be our problem in January. We aren’t in a position to sign the better players from better teams - they are playing and will command a fee.

We are left with signing players from bigger clubs that aren’t getting a game, or players lower down the ladder who may be able to step up.

Well yes, but we were promised that all signings now are done so in alignment with the MoneyBall approach to avoid signing duds. But clearly guys who arent playing for their clubs for months on end surely dont fit with that approach?

ffs Kpwenka was supposedly worth £400k!

I wasn't aware I was suggesting signing any injured player?

Think we can discount any comparisons to the players Stubbs signed. Also, if it’s a comparison to Moneyball...the A’s signed players ruled out by other teams. They were the ultimate scrapheap team! 

No idea on the boy that’s on trial. Might be worth it, might not. They could have scouted him ahead of his injury or watched him in reserve games.

Magic Monkey simply stated that an uninjured player who has been out for a shorter time will be able to return to full fitness more quickly. LPM, of course, is buried so deeply in his anti opinions that he has no hope of digging himself out of the holes that he keeps digging.

Hodson was given a couple of games in midfield and although he works hard he has no creativity. On Saturday he was back at full back. I believe we are paying a fair whack of his crazy Sevco wages so would not be surprised if we want to move him on.

And as an aside I reckon we should try and get Lee Wallace on loan.

And if his contract is up in the summer sevco will take a nominal fee for him, pull his loan, then he's off back down south for a bigger wage.

He might not have been playing RB but I would imagine if he was let go, we would be bringing in another RB so we would have cover.

Or, the rumours about clubs darn sarf trying to buy Hodson might have some credence.

This is also possible although it does surprise me. He’s been okay for us but I can’t imagine he’s good enough for the English Championship, unless Bolton and Ipswich are already preparing for life in League One.

Ralston is injured and not coming our way . . 

I knew he wasn’t coming our way about two weeks ago. Are you sure he’s injured though? He played the full 90 against New Airdrie.
