I think everyone was expecting this to be a loan so it's definitely good news it isn't. The only real difference for us though is that he will be available for games against them, whereas he wouldn't be if it had been a loan.

It also means they can't recall him when we go 20 points ahead of them at Christmas B)

Welcome to the club, hope you are good at dodging spears.

That would be a deal between them and him, wouldn't have anything to do with us.

It's an interesting transfer anyway, and as has been said before I'm glad we got this guy instead of a Lee Miller/Antoine-Courier/Jon Daly type signing.

Murray said in the radio interview there is a limit of five loan signings so getting him permanently means we can still have another three if required.

Dunno if lower league clubs can still abuse the transfer system with "emergency" loans out with the windows.

Have I just read a five page long completely happy thread or a meringue? Never thought I'd see the day. The surname Gallagher got a wee suspicious mention but nothing OTT. And we know he's at least four inches taller than Messi so he's bound to score more goals than him. I've got a feeling, don't know why, that this is a good signing but then I'm an eternal optimist about St.Mirren which puts me among the monority.

I'm guessing he's seeing us as a stepping stone where he can play regularly and get a bigger club next summer. Nothing wrong with that.

This is the thing: we will only ever be a stepping stone. Whether we're in the Championship, or finishing third in the top flight (I know, I know), most players will use us to develop themselves and get a bigger and better gig elsewhere. The best we can do is to be the best possible way for them to develop (hence Murray's comments about the facilities being a great draw for players) and hope that we get the pick of the young, hungry talent.

As against the 'moronity'?

Aye, we've got our fair share of chanty wrastlers but I prefer not to give them the oxygen of publicity.

I read your post several times but still had no idea what a chanty wrastler was. I thought it was an anagram. Brewed a coffee and tried to figure it out. No joy.

Google was my friend. Eventually. You bassa!

I believe you are only allowed 3 on loan at the one time (but can loan 5 players over the course of a season). Not sure if this is just from Scottish clubs or UK (i.e. whether or not Conlan being on Loan from Burnley and McMullan from Celtic means we already have 2 out of 3. Good that we got the boy on a permanent deal though.

Over the border loans don't count.

Murray said last night that he didn't want to use up all five potential Scottish loans all at once, as he might need a couple in January.

That would suggest that you could have all five at once.
