He’s a fat, lazy, waste of space with an over inflated sense of worth. Never a footballer.


This.

Would not be happy if we signed this waster.

I still can't believe we got £100K off Exeter City and £150,000 from Preston North End for Jayden Stockley.  Does kind of cover the fact fee paid for Chris Forrester looking like a waste of money.

Lemon was interviewed yesterday saying he would like Scott Allan but doesn't think it is going to happen...

Scott Allan’s undoubtedly got the potential to be a decent signing (not that I think it’ll happen). However, I’m not sure where he fits into the team as it currently stands.

Our fun of form in December was when we settled on a system with two hard working midfielders and May playing off Cosgrove. Allan won’t do the same job as Ferguson or Shinnie as he’s a number 10, and I don’t think he’d put in the shift that May has of late either. So we’d need to go back to 4-2-3-1 to accommodate him, which is all well and good but we’ll need to sign a striker who can play as the “1” because the ones we currently have don’t suit that system.

Stewart I could see as a straight swap for May; a different type of “second striker” but a potentially more prolific one.
Can you blame the man for going out of his mind temporarily?

Not so sure Gregg Stewart would relish coming back  given the fact he was pretty much a bit part player, often out of position, don't get me wrong , i rate him & would like to see it happen.

 Scott Allen, hasnt really featured at the Girodome , but must have something, where is his preferred position, attacking midfielder ?    just off main striker no.10 ?

Agree that Greg Stewart may not want to come back here. 8 goals in 16 appearances at Killie. 22 goals in 71 appearances for Dundee. He did better at these clubs than with us.

I’d take Stewart back in a heartbeat, although both him and Scott Allen could play the #10 role off Cosgrove. It’s a much easier sell to him given he’s not competing with Christie or McLean for that #10 position.

Happily have Stewart back if we actually played him in his best position. I thought it was a dead cert for him to go to the mackems though?

Birmingham manager said in interview that recalling Stewart was down to the board and he had nothing to do with it. Has reconfirmed Stewart will play no part in his plans for the rest of the season.

It was the Sunday Mail that ran with the story of us being interested in GS. More than likely just a reporter taking a flyer to fill column inches. Given that he is on £6.5k/week at Birmingham, think it would be unlikely he would want to come to us on £3-4k/week, he could get a good bit more in EFL1. Clubs know that Birmingham are desperate to get shot, I'd guess they'll try to stiff Birmingham to subsidise any contract they get him to sign till season's end....I can't imagine Killie were covering more than £1.5k/week when he was there. Hopefully he just signs a pre-contract with a club and stiffs B/ham for his full wages till his contract ends....they deserve that for the way they treated Killie

West Ham are signing Scottish right back Michael Kelly from Bristol Rovers. If his name is familiar it’s because he was on our books until a few years ago.

How and why did we let him go!? What's worse is we won't have a compensation fee I'm guessing?

Contract was terminated by mutual consent. Fell out with Sheerin soon after Sheerin was appointed. Went straight down the road and signed for Leicester.

It pained me to go the page to read it but this is where the latest McKenna talk is stemming from.
