Gregor Buchanan and the other Ross Stewart Sign

Recommended Posts

Hey you've got me bang to rights admitting i don't know. Although i guess by admitting that initially it kinda makes your witch hunt moot!
maybe Buchanan just agreed to tear up the final 5/6 months of his contract for nowt?
That's generally what happens when someone moves club. They don't carry their old contract forward.

We've already established this, but you're not very bright are you?

Is that the whole load of part time players signed in the summer punted yet? It’s almost the third week in January after all emoji28.png

Or is Kirkpatrick and what’s his face still here? You wonder why we bother signing them in the first place.

Now there is a surprise post honestly thought you had given up the hate Jack Ross campaign . Enjoy the rest of the season as they don't come along that often Top Cat.

Buchanan did tear up the rest of his contract for nowt, he wanted released so he could play 1st team football and he already had a club lined up that would give him that.

Its really not that difficult to understand but carry on making a c**t of yourself if it makes you feel better.

Not sure how it’s a witch hunt. It was a perfectly reasonable question.

I’m sure you’ll find some other reason to berate the club soon. All this positivity around St.Mirren at the moment must be f**king killing you!

 

There you go JJ knows exactly the detail around Gregor's departure, best ask him any follow up questions as he seems/claims to know exactly what's, what.

see heres the thing, if you pose a question, give an opinion you are automatically in the eyes of some "finding a reason to berate the club"...  and i thought for just over fifty years I have been supporting the club...? Ffs get a hold of yourself man and stop trying to turn saints fans against each other.

Why is it difficult/painful to admit what the manager obviously has (and is taking action on), and seemingly what the chairman is insisting, that we now recruit players who are ready to perform at premiership level, and those who arent, it makes sound business sense to cut the clubs losses and allow them to play first team football elsewhere?

Josh Mullin would be quite a capture for us as he's a very good young player who has always impressed against Saints. Motherwell credited with a definite interest in Mullin.

This is the boy I thought that we had signed when we signed Mullen. Looks a real prospect. Would be great to get him IMO.

JR is ruthless , like Fergie was. Since Buchanan messed up v Morton , when he gave away the pen after being warned by the ref , he hasn't started a match. That moment sealed his fate !

Would he have played again regardless of that?  I think he was covering due to the injury crisis.  Although bringing in McCart from Celtic was probably due to this.

Baird has been allowed back in despite making some serious mistakes.  Those aren't as frequent now at least.

I can tell you that Jack Baird id widely admired by managers & coaches at a number of clubs in our league!

i think sometimes, some of us forget what age he is, what age he started shouldering the responsibility of playing centre back for our club, and the crystal clear fact that good solid central defenders by dint of the job they have to do (one mistake and we concede a goal, versus Morgan one mistake and try again son) they build more steadily, more thoughtfully than a young forward or midfielder.

If he gets to continue working with Davis, and if we could keep them both in the top league we may well have arguably the best centre back pairing in the country!

Good to see some positivity from you, despite the nonsensical final statement!

Fine statement but, more to the point, Is his contract iron clad? inflexible? Written in stone? legal and lawful?

Going by Jack Ross' comments in the press, the decision to lose Buchanan appears to have not been his so was presumably the player himself requesting to go.

I saw that in the PDE.

You can't really blame Buchanan, with Baird, Davis and MacKenzie all certain starters before him.

Yeah, there's get out clauses on some player contracts for lack of appearances and probably wanted to go. Imagine he's had something lined up and we've offered a mutual termination at a reduced compensation cost. No big loss, couple decent games but a few absolute shockers as well.

Buchanan probably worried about his game time with Davis, Baird and probably McKenzie ahead of him. I'd be surprised if Ross wouldn't have preferred to keep him with McKenzie and Davis injury problems, and Davis not fancying the plastic pitches, but you can understand Buchanan wanting to play every week as he's definitely good enough to be a starting CB in this league. Fair play to him, he contributed greatly to where we are now and I wish him well.
