Any update on Kirkpatrick's injury?

Stubbs saying he could be out 6-12 weeks.

St Mirren midfielder Jordan Kirkpatrick could miss the first three months of the season after Alan Stubbs revealed he had damaged knee ligaments.

we,re actually only a couple of players away from having two players for each position , reckon our best starting eleven is Samsom , McGinn , Kpenawa  , Heaton , Eckersley , Flynn , Magennis , McGinn , Coulson , Smith , Mullen .

 

Agree on being close to having two players for each position. Still to see Magennis and Eckersley play this season.

I would disagree entirely.

I remember all the way to 1979 when we signed an experienced winger called Johnny Dempster. We also had an experienced centre half at the time, Andy Dunlop. We had a very poor start to that season which culminated in us getting knocked out of the League Cup at home to lower Division Hamilton after winning the away leg 2-0 at Douglas Park.

The response was to promote a young winger, signed from the juniors, by the name of Peter Weir. We also promoted a young centre half called Mark Fulton. Neither had any experience to note. Dempster & Dunlop never featured again. We went on to finish 3rd, our highest ever league placing. So dramatic was the turnaround that the poor start actually cost us the title itself.

All I can reading is that folk want us to sign "experience". I don't care about experience. All I want is for us to sign good players. And players do not need any experience to be good!

Have no recollection of this Dempster guy at all.  Agree with your assessment though. Experience is OK but it does not top good quality players.

You seriously think Heaton is better than McKenzie ????

He looked like a very raw "project" and that was against a Spartans team offering next to nothing. Nowhere near ready for Premier league football on that showing.

 

What formation is that You have 3 full backs playing (Coulson, McGinn and Eckersley)

Dempster destroyed us on a few occasions previously .  Andy Dunlop was 21 years of age when  he had the nightmare v Accies , so don't believe Wendy about him being experienced !

Have to feel for Kirkpatrick. Was probably at a half way house between impressing enough to be kept in squad or loaned out.  He certainly impresse vs Kilmarnock last week. The season will have started and Stubbs already may be looking to fill the void he has created with being injured.

The story goes that in the summer of '79 we had signed Somner and McDougall for a combined fee of £280k , Clunie's budget was 300k and he wanted Bobby Houston from Thistle , but they wanted £100k for him at that time. QOS wanted £30 k for Dempster , a similar but older player than Houston ,  but agreed to £25k and we paid that !

Oh for that budget now! Cracking signings as well. Happy days.

At the time, the McDougall & Somner transfer fees were the biggest and 3rd biggest in Scottish football history!

Clunie asked Jack Copland who he liked playing against the least and he told him Somner. That was good enough for him!
