Stephen O'Donnell is out of contract at Kilmarnock at the end of the season, and whilst I appreciate he's not an International class Right Back, as his Caps suggest, he'd certainly be an improvement on Logan, who sadly has regressed badly.

I'd be hoping we approach him at least.
It's a math class, the whole deal. Just like every math class, there's a clown in the front, and everybody hates this clown because he raises his hand, he's answering all the questions. What do we do? Move on. Just fucking move on, ready or not. He's deciding we got to move on, he knows his math, I hadn't even figured out about Santa Claus yet.

Logan was superb in his first year and a half. His decline has been consistently regressive.

The best question to consider is why?

Therein will be found a LOT of answers as to why it's all turning to shit. Consistently and regressively.

He was with us as a youth. We would likely be able to double his Kilmarnock wage. But so would pretty much every EFL1 club. FWIW....I think we could find a younger and better right back who would cost no more in pretty much every league in Europe.

Is it not partly that hes starting to lose his pace? I would say the same of Mcginn recently, still a good player but not as mobile as he once was. They are both in there 30's now.

That's a valid point and a good argument. However he's become very error-prone where he was consistently reliable before. I think there's much more to it than simply the ageing process. At 31 now, he's been much less from the age of 28/29 onwards when he really should have been in his prime.

McGinn should never have been re-signed. If he's of the right standard, forget competing for and winning stuff. A good team has consistent performers. He's incapable of 2 good games in 10.

I don't see it as lazy scouting at all, he's a good full back that has plenty of experience in this division now and is, whether on merit or not, an International. Would be available on a Free Transfer as well, we can still bring in a Ball/Vyner type player to cover injury/suspension.

But I do agree that he'd probably prefer a move to England, be it a Championship/League 1 team. I just think we should at the very least, talk to him.

He would definitely be an improvement on Logan at this time.

Well, with change at the club and apparent ambitions high, any chance of a January arrival or two? It appears Bryson is crocked again, and we are crying out for a Maddison/Christie attacking mid, anyone see squad additions this January?

Guess it will depend who our new American overlords have surplus to requirements in Atlanta’s reserves.

I think we will see a Chelsea Reserve player coming on loan, maybe even get Hector back on loan too! I think one of the good things regarding McInnes is his relationship with Lampard & Jody Morris, Chelsea have fucking lots of Youth players and I'm extremely confident that we will see one or two come on loan whilst Lampard is still the Manager there.

Hector is joining Fulham in January on a permanent transfer for an undisclosed fee. Was too late to join before the window closed in summer but apparently has been allowed to train full time with Fulham ever since.

Agree we might well see one of their youngsters join on loan though
