Best not to forget that Jamie has lost out financially too by not getting a cut of the fee, signing on fee and higher wages. 

Awwww

We have many ex players in the Scottish game. Hibs have the biggest share, that’s for sure. They pay more money than us and hand out longer contracts. Both of which are naturally attractive to players. Missing out on a fee would be my concern as holding on to Jamie for now is a plus on the playing side….but… we did miss out on cash, classy midfielder and a pacy winger.
Hilarious, let me know your next gig at the comedy club and I'll come along.

Strange situation. McGrath gets the whole game v Portugal  , does well , and Ireland almost pull off a famous victory. Then , playing a team at home where they should be looking to repeat their decent form and get a morale booster , he doesn't get a look in .  Kenny doesn't do himself any favours with his chopping and changing , and he still cant buy a win !

Kenny said he wanted to field a more attacking team than against Portugal.  He sees McGrath as a defensive midfielder, like Jeff Hendrick. That's why he dropped them both.  Guy hasn't a clue, and that's why Ireland can't win under his management.

Bit like Goodwin, not a clue!

Wouldn't be surprised if Kenny was out of a job by the end of the week. ROI are all but out of a chance of qualifying through the group, can be made mathematical in the next game. That'll teach him for not playing their best player. :P 

Neil Lennon being touted for the job this morning 🇮🇪

What, exactly, do yo suggest we do to stop Hibs, or any other clubs, cherry pick our plyers?

It's not rocket science, Hibs, and plenty other clubs, have more resources and, as such, will be able to offer our players better conditions/prospects and salaries. 

This fixation on Ross is very amusing. 

As for what Tony says......................you'd need to be a fool to pay any attention to him. 

What a defeatist attitude to have  :booty ,  If our players are under contract we could easily say pay up plenty or go [email protected]@k yourself and take the hit, Maybe then we'll start getting a better deal for our players like other clubs do,  

The club are always telling us they run a tight budget and have no debt. so we don't have to sell the minute someone chaps the door. especially to clubs like Hibs, our attendances will start suffer if we don't grow a pair soon, and so will our league position 

We let Jack Ross take 2 players from us still under contract for virtually nothing while we where fighting to stay in the league FFS. where else would that happen

Good to see he played the full 90mins. I have no idea how he played as I was watching the game in Vienna. Hopefully he played well and some bigger teams than Hibs make a decent cash offer in January, as I think we can concede the player won’t be with St Mirren next season.

Got hooked in 68th minute as he was honking!

He had a pretty quiet game on the ball. Didn't deliver well from the few dead ball opportunities he had. He got scythed down when breaking through but that was really the only positive impact he had. Worked very hard and chased down the opposition well, though.

Once the players heard of the interest (and increase in wages) from Hibs through their agents they asked to leave. Always a difficult situation to manage. Do you hold onto a player who is clearly itching for a move or do you take what’s on offer.

Simply put. The guys are professional and follow the money.
