Alan's first signings


Recommended Posts

Seriously ? You think we would be paying a championship side 75k compo for their asst manager ?????
 
I'm concerned we would be paying a team at Darlington's level anywhere near 75k for a player - that seems silly money for the level he is playing at (if true of course)


Leicester just payed 22 million for the boy James Maddison from Norwich. If I’m not mistaken that’s the same chap that scored a wonder goal against SEVCO while on loan at Aberdeen........ I guess that’s what we’re up against when contemplating buying guys from the English leagues. I don’t think for a minute Maddison is worth anywhere near that, but it’s the nature of the market down there.

Same approach brought us James Marwood mind you.....

Yeah, completely fair point. We'll have to see how it pans out. I guess I  like the idea that there is lots of untapped talent at that level that we could/should be looking at.

The one thing this lad does have going for him is that he's not been signed by Tommy Craig.

Google Scottish Sun/St Mirren. 

Nothing conclusive there , Big Yin . The speculation goes  on . Might have to pop down  to Asda now. .

Surely by now everybody knows .......... that Asda Linwood/Paisley/Elderslie/Feegie really is the place you need to go.  :rolleyes:

Wait till you hear the sell on % !

I'd be surprised it there isn't a hefty sell on fee. 30% or so. However, if the likes of Everton, Boro etc are keeping tabs on him, and he does well, we'd still be looking at a big profit.

If he does well...

Not happy at spending £75000.

It is a major gamble. 

We might get lucky. 

The boy could be magnificent and bring us success and most importantly, keep the ball away from you know who. 

Good length of Contract meaning he can be sold for a hefty profit after a year or 18 months.. 

Still a gamble that doesn't sit easy with me. 

Welcome Josh. 

It's definitely a gamble but Stubbs spent a week working with him at very close quarters in the V9 academy trial week and by most accounts, he was one of the 2 or 3 top performers on show over the piece.

Quite confident that Stubbs has picked him out through first hand experience rather than scouts feedback or a 3rd part recommendation. 

Hopefully the lad comes to us and is as solid as someone like Scott Cuthbert was.

The lad is becoming less of a gamble the more I hear about him. 

Could turn out to be a diamond and worth a small fortune to our Club. 

Hopefully, he will sign very soon.

Was this site visited by some oriental hackers or was it the Hong Kong St Mirren supporters club making some comments, or was it just my computer?

The site gets spammed very occasionally. Nothing to worry about as a user; just a pain in the arse.

Let's assume this guy turns out to be decent, I think it's precisely the kind of transfer that we all hoped Stubbs would bring to the table. Rated young English lad on a long contract that we might be able to sell on for a profit if he does well. 

I, for one, welcome this approach. 

For me the length of the contract is a worrying aspect - hope it has a relegation clause built in.
