Like I said earlier we could only go on what was published on the official Coventry website. So if JG wants to speak to anyone that started the rumours he’d best call Mark Robins.

Just a pity folk just read some of words. he did say probably for the time scale and was hopeful it would be less.

Now we also know we're not paying any wages until he arrives fit.

Who's Ben Banks and that's not a direct quote from Goodwin. :blink:

FWIW I would be surprised if we'd signed a player that was out for a period of 6-8 weeks. 

Seems a bit of a chancer barely out of school with 1 yr of HND course but advertising himself like Scotland's foremost sports broadcaster/journo

Not in the best taste. The lad is just going to one of our media conferences and writing about it on a reasonably popular Scottish football website.

A League Cup, first match press conference for St Mirren v Partick isn’t going to attract the who’s who of Sporting media, I’d suggest.

The club is an embarrassment. I’m so disappointed in some of the things that are happening at present.   As a fan today I thought we might get a wee bit of ambition like United signing the lad mcnulty. Just something to soften the blow of our captain being sold for peanuts. It’s always the same tho and we are a poorly run club that has made a fool of itself twice in the past week with ridiculous statements.  
Anyhow if you look at the squad it’s not strong enough and the midfield is an area we don’t have enough depth. Sure Cammy and Ethan played well on Friday but will they have the physical and mental strength to go a whole season. I suspect not and McAllister has been nowhere near good enough whilst Foley and Durmus look a shadow of themselves. Throw in MCGrath who is tidy but has no end product. It’s a shame and also the lack of a goal threat now glaringly obvious.

Yes I know it’s a moan and I know that people may well say I’m wrong but It looks like a squad that’s going down. Kenny McLean was sold and never replaced and this looks like the same. Same old saints desperate to get a hundred grand or so for a player who might have made a difference in the relegation fight.

i want to be angry but I’m actually just really fed up with this and fed up in general at the minute. If the board Think they can shout about top six with this squad they’re off their head. This team has the stench of relegation all over it.

Actually old boy, I think perhaps YOU are the embarrassment, the lad wanted to go and could have gone for free (or development money only) in January, so tell me what would you have done, he had been offered aa 4 year deal and didn't want to sign.  OK; so did he take an unfair advantage and wait till he recovered from his injury and then decide to leave? Some might think so, but he was injured as a St Mirren player and entitled to receive the best treatment we could give him.  Are we happy about it? No we are not.  But has the lad done anything untoward? No he hasn't, so we suck it up and move on.  Do people like yourself; running down members of our squad help?  Is it at all productive?  Possibly not would be my take on that question, we are St Mirren. we support our team...............ALWAYS. COYS.

Correct. The idea that Magennis wanted to stay is laughable. 5 year deal at Hibs to stay at SMFC, do me a favour. 

So the club have done the right thing. Take the money, get thro COVID and see if there is enough for Jan window. 

By Jan we will also know if Goodwin is cutting it and probably well before.

Goodwin has to get on with it. The squad showed on Friday evening what it can do and its his job to get that level of performance and commitment from now on. 

SMFC made a silly statement to placate a number of moron fans when they should have held their dignity and let Magennis go with grace.

Chancer?????  To me he is showing great initiative and drive. He regularly writes about all aspects of Scottish football far more incisively and intelligently than Tom English who is the Chief Sports writer on BBC Scotland. His video calls with players at home are insightful. But most of all his content is not about the Old Firm - unheard of in Scottish media.

But he is only 19 with an HND so he must be shite.

Good luck to the wee guy.. will be tuning in in future 👍

Totally agree.
I admire the work the lad is doing and the initiative he has shown.
I've also enjoyed a number of his articles.

This has been posted before, but try it for the 33 minutes.

Both the interviewer and Cody Cooke are articulate, very insightful and honest. More of this style of blog is great for the fans and to hear a player I liked, and sorry he didn't quite make it, is really interesting to hear.

Power to his elbow!

I wouldn't focus solely on the passing of McGennis, the main point of that post is the kind of player coming in compared to how the opposition are performing in that department.  So largely, his points are correct and well aimed.

Have to say I thought we were the better side against Dons and were very very unlucky not to take something from the game for fcuks sake even Willie Miller admitted as much.Yes I think Jim could have used subs to run down the clock but we have to remember his choices were very limited oh and yes we had SIX senior players unavailable onwards and upwards COYS

Your a happy clapper who will clearly accept anything. When did I also run any player down in this ? Kyle was a very good player who I feel would have made a big difference in our attempt to avoid relegation. It annoys me as I am sure it must annoy you that we no longer have his services. Sure the club may well have offered him a new deal and he might have decided his future lay elsewhere but I still feel he will be a loss and you can bet any player incoming won’t have his pedigree. 
I also think we need to try and a avoid  losing Players for transfer fees that will be below their value. 
My point was that the clubs statements were embarrassing and this I think is a view shared by the bulk of our support. No player was ever mentioned and I am certain that without our captain the job just became a little harder .

Finally to suggest being critical of a situation means I don’t support the team is ridiculous . I often say that this website gives a platform for discussion and yes a good moan at the problems we face. It’s nothing more than this and on matchday the team home and away can rely on my unconditional support “Old boy”

Norrie, a player is only worth what other clubs are willing to pay for him, particularly those in the last year of their contract?  What do you think Magennis was worth and how much did we get for him as you appear to be in the know?

Do you genuinely think that nobody on the board has considered this to be a problem?

You do realise that all of our recent player sales (McLean, McGinn, MaGennis) have come when the player is at the end of their contract and therefore we have no negotiation power at all?

You can't force another club to make a bid when a player is mid-contract, you can't force a bidding war when only one club has made a bid and you absolutely cannot force an employee to stay beyond their contract when they want to try something new.

I'm as disappointed as anyone to see Kyle go but the lack of even a basic understanding from our fans about how the real world works is exhausting to watch.

Agreed. But we should be told the fee. No good reason not too. BoD too used to keeping supporters and part owners in the dark. Not good enough.

No wish to get into a barney with you good sir, old boy or even f*ck face, however you said the squad was "not good enough" and then go on to suggest that six specific players either do not, or will not, meet your seemingly rigorous standards. and I haven't a clue what a happy clapper is.  As for suggesting that you don't support the team, where did that come from? certainly not my post, what I said re yourself was........... "Do people like yourself; running down members of our squad help?  Is it at all productive?  Possibly not would be my take on that question, we are St Mirren. we support our team...............ALWAYS. COYS".   And finally, according to yourself  "this website gives a platform for discussion and yes a good moan at the problems we face."  but it would seem that only applies to your concerns and nobody can comment or criticise your thoughts, in which case I apologise............................................NOT.

Not really concerned about the fee.  No reason why I should want to know. Makes no difference if I did.
