Your being a bit harsh on Bairdy. He has a lot of SPL experience and played over 150 games in all. And played in the 2 games in the play off final. Has a championship winning medal. Daniel Finlayson. With respect 0.

 

If he’s SPL quality, then why has he signed for Ayr? Or Morton the season before? Surely Accies or Livvy would have picked him up?

Bairdy started off with 0. :rolleyes:

There are 4 leagues in the SPL, so the question really is "Is he premiership quality".

 So our club will be paying for his rehab and his wages during this time and we will see no return. That is unbelievable

Is that how the deal works Yflab? I had no idea you were privileged enough to have access to the info.How much are we wasting per week while he’s injured?

I have no inside information. I’d imagine we are paying a significant chunk of his of wage. Injured or not. Plus it is our physios rather than Coventrys. That was what I was alluding to. Apologies.

So you've no idea but you want to moan anyway. :lol:

So if the news about his injury is true and he is out for 6-8 weeks do you think it was a good decision to sign this player than promote someone from the academy. That was the point I was making.

The decision to let Mullen go was ridiculous. He was most certainly a decent option to have in attack and given the circumstances the world is in, sometimes you're better to stick for now.

Danny was a bit short [in my opinion] a top league player.  but was a better goalscorer than anything we had,  or now have

I never said he was. But he's played in the SPL Daniel Finlayson has not played one min for Rangers or anyone else except a championship side called Orange County in the USA. Surely bairdy would be better than a kid with no experience. Thats all I'm saying.

Hope there's not a lot of other teams out there offering to send us their injured players, if we're prepared to pay a significant chunk of their wages. :unsure:

It’s a sad day when we’ve got fans hankering for Championship level players in Baird and Mullen. 

Sadder still that we cant replace them with equal to or better

Maybe these two signings are just squad fillers (never a good plan). I don't think the club would have consciously signed an injured player on loan, maybe more mismanagement by Coventry than by us.  If we really took a punt on someone in the hope that they would be available for maybe a month before they could be recalled then I would be concerned.

More concerning for me is the fact that if anyone already in the squad shows a bit of form and is under 24 then they can be expected to be sold on for a low fee to a competitor who will look to make a lot more by selling them on.  The way we are selling on seems to leave us in a downward spiral as it doesn't matter who moves on, we always replace with lower quality.

Up until now, the conventional wisdom has been that you invest in an academy and reap the rewards when your home-grown talent delivers  either success or a hefty fee.  Now it seems better sense to let other clubs develop the talent and you sign them up for a low fee and a promise of a cut of future profits.  Hibs seem to have a better grasp of the transfer market than us when they can raise cash for players when laying other staff off.

I’d rather the club had just come out to the support and said the target for left back that we were after is now long term injured, so we have made the decision to promote from the academy a young player who will train with the first team squad and be used from the bench or when suspension or injury kicks in. I’m sure most fans would have been supportive of promoting from our own academy than signing and paying good wages on an injured player.
 

Who would sanction such a signing? It’s bordering on incompetence. There will no doubt be supporters who bought season tickets to support the club in a time of need that have been hit hard financially because of COVID-19 who must be asking why they bothered. 
 

Is this another of JG’s sly dig at the board for selling Kyle? I actually think it might be. But hey maybe our physios can work miracles on Mason and he will be back playing after the international break. Pigs 🐷 might fly.

All this talk at the start of the season of aiming for the top 6 had me hoodwinked. More fool me.
 

We’ve known we had concerns over the defence for months. It was clear last season the Bairdy was never in Jim’s plans. Why did it take to the last day of the transfer window to sign a 19year old with no top flight experience as his replacement. It’s a feckin disgrace.

I’m scunnered at the way our club is being run. feckin scunnered.

You weren't alone.

Me, on the other hand, said it was pie in the sky with a poor manager, average players and no financial backing, or gambling as @oaksoft suggested.

Shall we wait and see what the actual story is before soiling our breeks?
