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. 

 

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.

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.

He picked up his injury in the Airdrie match at the end. . .

I see Morgan ruled out so I'd say the priority is a left winger, with pace.

If we went with a 4-2-3-1 formation it would allow us to keep playing Jackson and get 3 attacking mids in behind

If we want to play 4-4-2 then the priority is a left winger and a striker

Don't see the need for a right back personally

Left back is still an issue (as always)

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.

Have had a wee look regarding Lee Wallace. There are some big English clubs like Villa being linked with Wallace.

That is a real problem IF they are interested in him

I know the New Club want him out on loan. Maybe our chances are slim however he would be a great addition if we got him.

Sorry my mistake - He must have recovered from his injury . . . 

And I doubt we would get Ralston however he was injured against Airdrie and will miss playing us at least.

Wallace is a very decent player.

Would be an asset on the pitch.

We've already got Hodson from Sevco, so no more loans from them this season.

Personally would rather we avoid doing any business at all with them.

Don't you fancy seeing him in the Black and White on our pitch?

Off the pitch...not so sure.

If Hodson goes then that would leave room to take Wallace.

Irony could be, after playing the biggest part in our league and promotion triumph last season, Morgan could yet feature against us and help to push us down this season.

best to imitate first, then petition the boards, as fans of Hull, Huddersfield and Forest to sign Lewis Morgan.

theres nothing worse than a former player scoring against a former club, then drawing wven more attenrion to the fact by NOT celebrating when they score ffs.

From the record...

Oran Kearney has revealed a bid for Blackpool full-back Ryan McLaughlin has been unsuccessful.

The St Mirren boss thought he had agreed a six-month loan deal for the former Liverpool youngster.

All that was required was for the 24-year-old to drive north to Paisley and sign a contract.

But Kearney’s hopes were dashed when Blackpool received a cash bid from another unnamed club south of the border and the Northern Ireland international was ordered to return back to Bloomfield Road to talk terms with Saints’ rival suitors.

Kearney, who is still hoping to add up to four new faces after clearing out 13 of Alan Stubbs’ signings already this month, said:

That one has been and gone.

We had that sorted yesterday. Ryan was driving up last night, we had all the paperwork done.

Then Blackpool received a bid for him. They called Ryan as he was approaching Glasgow and asked him to turn the car around.

So he’s driven back down the road again and that one’s now history.

It is frustrating but that’s football. Someone once told me you should never get carried away with a signing until the signature is on the paper. That one is probably the closest I’ve ever come before having it taken away.

Ryan is gone now as far as I’m concerned so it’s on to the next one.

We’ve still got a couple of deals pretty much done but where we are in the food chain means we’re in the hands of other clubs. The whole thing relies on certain business getting done higher up the chain and when it does, a chain reaction follows and players are allowed to move on.

Full backs,midfield players ,Will not win us games,we need strikers , they should have been a priority.

All this loan stuff for a few months may save us,but I doubt it, so then we start all over again??

Our issue is the risk of relegation really weakens  your chance of attracting a player committing long term. We have done well to tie the Hladky and Tansey beyond this season. 

I am sure within the next week we will see some activity and I am fairly confident a striker is a high priority.

Agree with this - a new striker (preferably not Sammon) should be top priority.  Followed by a left-back.

Depends. If you need a full back, and consistently concede goals because of it, then it doesn’t matter then number of strikers you have. For us, it’s all about managing the points per game balance...and we need a strong defence to do so.

also, the manager has aknowleged that he doesn’t want to dabble in the loan market and that will not be the long term plan. However, it’s a case of needs must right now.

True, but think of the broken Bro-mances and Man crushes on here if he lines up against us and plays a blinder.?

He is not coming back to us in this window - end off . ..   and not because we have no money left . . . . :hammer

The curse of the"Carlilse Triangle" strikes yet again. When will our managers ever learn....

A. Dont let players coming to sign drive up the feckin M6/M74. Stick them on a feckin flight and get them to sign before collecting their luggage!

B. Confiscate their mobile phone.

What if we went with 3 central defenders (as we have been doing when Ferdinand has been in the side)?

11 good players on the pitch wins us games, not just one striker.

You do realise top strikers are bloody hard to come by and any decent striker we are in for, other clubs will also be in for?

We could sign a striker, it doesn’t mean he is any good though. Do you want us to sign one for the sake of it, or do you want us to try and find that goalscoring striker that others somehow haven’t noticed?

The long term does not look too good,no Saints players in latest Scotland  under 17 squad
