Every time i hear it will be very difficult to replace this player etc. Not at our level, Durmus and Connolly are jobbing footballers, plenty of them around. Connolly is nowhere near good enough. Durmus was junk for a number of months early in the season but found form and contributed a lot. He is not irreplaceable though. Henderson looks like a player we can bring through, his end product is vastly better than Connolly and he will only improve. We need to improve in all areas of the squad because next season the Premiership will at its strongest for a number of years.

In fairness to Ilkay Durmus he caught Covid early in the season and it affected him pretty bad. I don’t think he was the only one affected in our squad as a result of the illness.

Aye thats a good point. Having said that even before the COVID outbreak I didn't think he looked interested for whatever reason. Second part of the season I think he has been really good and one of our best players. Thought he was outstanding against St J in the semi

Heard Erhahon will be moving down South. Super confident in own ability despite Barnsley experience. Too big for us. Hope not true as felt he has developed well this season. Would agree about most of the others if we can replace them with more consistent performers and more clinical strikers. Erwin has contributed much more recently to overall play but is employed to score goals as is Obika. We are over reliant on goals from midfield presently

Would be sorry to see Erhahon go, can tell there is a real quality player in there and it's a position that many clubs find hard to fill. If he does go we can surely hope for a decent transfer fee and sell-on with his remaining contract. 

For me, sadly Erwin has been a massive let down bar a few flash in the pan moments (not even performances, movements for me) but more often than not he's been a liability. I heard the Erhahon rumour last week & the same person said Erwin was on the move as well with possibly an SP club interested. Fingers crossed.

Apparently JG is set to announce which players will be departing

I assume he has replacements lined up and they are ready to put pen to paper once he makes the announcement. Then again I sometimes live in the land of make believe.  😀

Wouldn't offer a contract to Connolly.  No end product whatsoever.

We need to find a version of Obika who can find the net more often.

Would bin Quaner also.

Would keep Durmus and Doyle-Hayes but they will go.

Probably McGrath too, hopefully for a decent fee.

Try and offload McAllister.

Flynn I think may be time to move on unfortunately.

So... a lot of work for Goodwin in the summer

I would love to keep Flyn because he is quality and Connoly because he is fast and a grafter

Flynn's contract has been extended for a year. emoji106.png

Great move for both player and club.  


Club get a quality player

Player gets to have another season with the mighty buds knowing that this may well be his last year at this level before we wave goodbye and watch him join Top Bin at the tail of the bank to see out his career.

So currently, we have 14 players who could reasonably expect to play in each game and 5 others including 2 spare goalies and 3 kids (Reid, Finlayson and Jack).

I reckon we need to find another 4-6 regulars who would push to be in the starting 11. At a push if all fans are allowed back next season we might be able to get to 7 others. We're waiting on 4 deciding including Jamieson who I expect will stay unless he's offered regular football elsewhere. I wouldn't include him as one of the 14 yet though. Mind you, Henderson came from nowhere and I've included him.

So, if JDH, Durmus and Connolly all stay we might be looking for another 1-4 players ready for the starting 11 depending on budget.

Does that include your good self? Simple Yes or No. I believe you like simple questions. So @antrin told me.
 

If yes that’s great. I might even buy you a drink.

If no why not?

He can’t answer a simply question @antrin?

Maybe the last vaccine has caused him to lose his ability to use t’internet. 😂

I wonder if McGrath getting selected by Ireland might convince Doyle Hayes to sign a contract with us again.

I also wouldn’t be surprised to see McGrath sign a new deal on improved terms so we make a decent bit of coin when we sell him, heard he is very happy at the club.

It's a bit of a throwaway line with most players giving similar during these types of interviews. I hope we can tie him down longer but I wouldn't be reading too much into an interview with the Paisley Daily Express.

If it was me, I wouldn't sign a new contract with a year to go.

Especially when I'd just had an international call up.

I'd wait until January next season at the earliest.

I'd take my chances of a bigger club coming in with a lot more money - multiples of anything Saints can offer.
