Speculation Thread

Recommended Posts


The guys still a proven goalscorer. We couldn’t put a goal in open play past three sides miles below us in the league system. I dislike the guy and think he’s a knobend, but on footballing ability I’d very easily take him right now.
If Killie had a Scottish manager I think he'd be heading there, but not sure their new guy will know about him or want him.

Stevie May deal with the fakes is off

Dundee look to be up next

Goodwin was seen at McDiarmid Park last night chatting with May's agent Rowan Vine (was mentioned by a few folk in St. Johnstone match day thread over on P&B) .

Few St. Johnstone fans seem to think he's St. Mirren bound but I can't see it. If so it was very nice of St. Johnstone to give him a successful medical on our behalf. Haah

Someone's telling porkies.

 

But St Mirren are also chasing the Dons striker and May’s agent Rowan Vine was spotted at McDiarmid on Wednesday beside Paisley boss Jim Goodwin.(Daily Record)

You are hearing those voices again (or just making stuff up as usual). Fakes fans on PnB state to a man it's because another club has bettered the Fakes offer and the agent wants them to match it which they have refused to do. But wait we are totally skint according to you so no way we have outbid the Fakes surely ?!?!?!?

You just making shit up again?

where have i said we are totally skint? Answer... nowhere!

what i have said is we have identified and missed out on targets because we werent in a postion to meet there wage demands! Meaning our budget yet again bears no resemblance to the board's expectations.

we are going in for players and for some bizarre reason knowingly.... offering them less than we know they will agree to! Hence Popescu, Verheydt, Erwin etc...etc... rocking up somewhere else. 

Now with the small budget we could put all our eggs in one basket to sign a May or whoever, but will one decent signing give us a successful season i.e. Staying up?

Is there anything you don't know? 

Lottery numbers. Because I write about the player budget you follow me around like a bad penny. Heard from fellow buds what targets we are after on Pie and bovril. If your talking about the Rangers striker it's quite common knowledge within their fans.

It would be a very welcome shot in the arm if we were able to sign May.

There seems to be some doubt as to May signing for the Fakes or Dundee according to press reports.

If true, that just leaves us and Kilmarnock of the remaining rumoured suitors.

Do we want him badly enough?

See Ross County just added two more experienced players. How on earth did they manage to pull off that? I mean i dont even think they've got a technical director, or been to La Manga ffs!

I've mentioned this before so apologies....Ross County are still throwing money at players be it straight cash or cash/accommodation. Both County and Caley did it for years but

Caley are pink lint and can't compete in this type of market any more. There was always problems tempting players to move North and only one way to overcome that..cash.

Remember Uncle Roy bulleted McIntyre and Dodds and then promoted from within which saved a few bob....Make no mistake they are operating with a hefty budget.

They have just sold a player so maybe that's why they were able to bring 2 other players in. Remember they also lost their 1st choice keeper who decided he would rather play with the Jags in the championship than in the top league.

You do know they are selling players for very nice sums down south..? Wheras our chairman sees transfer receipts as money to throw at managers and players he dorsnt want. So if you've mentioned it before you should be apologising! Lol

Do you think a player will up sticks to the Highlands if he has a similar deal from a Central Belt Team when you factor in moving house/ renting.....no chance.

County have to offer more dosh. That's how they do it.

The keeper LEFT Ross C after at least 2 seasons with them to move to Glasgow for a team in the lower league, why if Ross pay so much more ?

From their accounts, Ross County have been recording pretty substantial losses over the past few years.

Like other clubs, they like to hide their profit and loss accounts but they don't look healthy at all.

Their owner is extremely wealthy he has bank rolled them for years. You would think there must come a point where you say enough is enough. I watched their title home game the attendance was very poor and no atmosphere considering the magnitude of the occasion.

He is worth between 500m to 1bn

He wanted to be beside his family, there have been plenty players who came up but did not move their families. They were happy enough to make a right few bob then go back south after one or two seasons.

A nice precise figure. Very accurate. emoji3.png

 

You surely know the saying that if you can say how much you are worth it's because you dont have much in the first place.

His business interests are also likely to provide flexibility we cant do in terms of housing and other issues.

A mini version perhaps of how Man City handle financial fair play rules, but I am sure you considered all of this before replying.
