  1. They have confirmed it isn't being extended. Presumably registration cancelled, pointless them holding onto it for a few more days
  2. Still losing cash on a weekly basis you auld cunt (not a question it's a statement) Get your arse back and give us your comedy selections once a week
  3. It will keep on getting proposed by them at least once every 12 months until they finally hit upon a scheme (likely involving some sort of inducement inbuilt into the scheme for lower league clubs) until they finally get what they want. It's all an insurance policy so that if/when the arse cheeks get invited into a new European or British league set up a few years down the line, they have a legacy set-up already in the Scottish league system to act as a feeder towards their "big" teams. And you can be sure that any progress limitations initially imposed will be wiped out asap after this happens and the colts sides will be allowed to progress to the SPL. I'm totally resigned to it happening, for me it's just when, not if
  4. Not looking forward to this one with any great confidence considering who is missing. Cosgrove did nothing on Sunday and tbh he didn't look particularly interested but as I expected, he starts tonight. We are obviously putting him in the shop window but if he plays shite for the next few weeks and doesn't score, his value drops on a weekly basis. I read what Ferguson said about penalties after the draw with Celtic...I read into it that Cosgrove is back on them but I'd far rather Ferguson continued in that role. Kennedy/Wright/Hedges/Mclennan are a pacy attacking unit to assist Cosgrove but a bit powder puff when it comes to doing the dirty side of the game. Ferguson will have to play a bit deeper in the absence of McGeouch. Hernandez makes the bench by default. I want to say 3-1. But 1-1 wouldn't surprise me
  5. Leigh gives us options at the back. Of course he will never be an asset that sells for millions down the line but he's a solid pro at SPL level and getting him in for free is an excellent bit of business. I'd expect his signing will conclude our business for this transfer window...unless we see a couple of late loans heading out of the club. Would still like to see Dean Campbell go somewhere for the rest of the season to get a regular game. He's certainly behind McCrorie, McGeouch and Ferguson for a spot in the side, you would like to think he's ahead of Ojo now but probably not as Mcinnes sees something in Ojo that nobody else does. Campbell would be better served getting a regular game elsewhere rather than 10-30 minute sub appearances and the occasional start if we have an injury or suspension crisis
  6. No mention of it on St J club website. Would surely have been on there by now if he had signed? I find it very strange that an SPL club would take a punt on him, given our medical team/physios couldn't keep him fit for much longer that 6-8 weeks at a time tops. All I could see happening is that he extracts a large wage from a club with a very limited budget for very very little in return. A pay as you play deal could work....but I've never actually seen anybody on a true deal like that....anyone that has nominally a PAYP deal seems to have a guaranteed basic wage before the PAYP kicks in (eg Andy Carroll at Newcastle who supposedly has a £30k/wk basic but triples up to £90k if he plays)
  7. So why did Celtic the club vote against newco being allowed into the SPL in 2012?
  8. 4/5 with Ladbrokes...boosted to 5/6. I wasn't missing that.
  9. Celtic were well aware that the only way Aberdeen were guaranteed second place was if we defeated them, leaving sevco in third no matter what result they achieved. It will never be able to be proven of course...but I think they were more than happy to take the defeat in order to embarrass sevco.
  10. I don't think Killie will go near him now. Just too injury prone, they cant be paying a relatively high wage for a player who looks like he will only be available for half of the matches each season. And playing on their artificial surface would likely only exacerbate this. I actually think he has a player/coach or player/manager position somewhere in the west/south west of Scotland lined up. Ayr/Morton/Stranraer or the likes.
  11. Nah the mainer will be reserved for club officials and players. I'd be amazed if it wasn't the RDS lower that gets used
  12. Ach this time next year he will be opening franchises nationwide. All those ladies out there needing the internal workings of their boilers checked out.
  13. Surely he will be off down south nearer his kids when his deal with us runs out? He's still good enough to play part-time non-league down there. Clearing blockages of shite during the week as his main job then playing football with a load of shite at the weekend. A world of turds awaits the bold Mr Logan
  14. Wow that's a bonus getting him out the door. Even if we have had to pay him say until the end of December it's a good deal. It's a pity it didn't work out but he's just unable to keep himself fit for any length of time to be any use. I think he's being a bit optimistic that anyone else will take a chance on him. On the evidence of his time with us, the only sensible deal a club could offer him would be on a pay-as-you-play basis.
  15. Not too surprised about Virtanen. Tbh if he couldn't dislodge a clearly in-decline-for-over-2-seasons Logan and a clearly "McInnes doesn't rate and possibly had no input into his signing" Hernandez then it was obvious he had/has no future with us. Suspect Anderson will be next out the door in similar circumstances to a club at a similar level.. Campbell should definitely go out on loan too, but he definitely does have a future with us. Should be able to get a loan at a higher level than the other 2 into the bargain....St Johnstone might be a good fit? Ideally we should be looking to punt Bryson too but cant see anyone being remotely interested given that he struggles to stay fit for longer than 6 weeks at a time
  16. I think we should really be taking it one tie at a time. A lot of our support are taking it for granted that we will eliminate Viking with relative ease. With the tie being in Noggieland, I'd put our chances at no better than 45/55. However...if we can make Q3, I'd be quietly confident of getting a result against any of the potential opponents IF we can get a home tie. An away tie I'd expect it to be curtains though, except maybe if it were Honved but even then I'd have severe doubts.
  17. Fairly sure Main is now fully fit, just lacking match sharpness. But also fairly sure that Watkins is for now considered first choice striker, Interesting to see what happens when Cosgrove eventually returns. International break probably not come at a good time for us. Just starting to play well and get a bit of momentum. Hopefully all players involved don't pick up injuries whilst away. Confident we will continue our good run anyway 3-1 (Watkins, Hedges, Hoban)
  18. Burnley flew up here from Manchester on a Flybe service I think finance will trump any thoughts of Covid. If it's allowed....and I've seen nothing anywhere to say that it isn't.....I think that is what they'll do. Even a short hop in a chartered plane is likely to cost us about £35-40k . Sticking us (30 players/staff say) on the SAS service I'd guess about £12k
  19. I suppose the counter argument to it was that he could probably have signed for someone like Bournemouth or West Ham or Everton etc and played regularly for them but still would have won SFA whilst raking in a likely smaller (but still decent) wage. Wherever he ended up, it wasn't going to affect his position as a first-pick Jamaica international. And it's not like he wasn't playing at all...Chelsea had him loaned out pretty much all the time. He's now a multi-millionaire and will be a first choice in the EPL with Fulham. It's not a decision I would have made but I doubt he's regretting it one iota
  20. Yep Cormack definitely said is was £800k The big question that needs answering though is whether McInnes had any input at all into sanctioning it. My suspicion is very little if any at all.
  21. Only an hours flight, might even do it on the cheap by booking the team onto the daily SAS service rather than chartering a flight. Only downside would mean returning on Friday morning rather than leaving right after the match ends. Pleased to have avoided Bala away which would actually have been a bit of a nightmare as its in the middle of nowhere.....2 hour drive each way from either Liverpool or Manchester airports
  22. Right now we aren't missing Cosgrove at all. Pleasantly surprised at just how good Watkins has been and the football we are playing is much more pleasing to the eye as a direct consequence. Well deserved victory today. Put Hibs in their place. McCrorie was absolutely immense and will no doubt be in the next Scotland squad if he performs to that standard throughout September. Hoban and McKenna also excellent but every single player in our side contributed well, nobody worse than 7/10. Fortnight off now to work on some stuff in training. Genuinely excited about this squad...it is without doubt the best we have had since Miller's second season as boss (W not A)
  23. Radio Shortbread just confirmed it's Gogic who was the positive/now negative player. Despite the negative follow up test he still has to isolate for 10 days. The player himself has tweeted his disappointment to be missing the match because of this
  24. That's one hell of an attacking side to start the match with. Honestly thought Kennedy would have started on the bench with one of McGeouch or Ojo partnering McCrorie in defensive midfield. Wonder if Cormack really has given McInnes a rocket up the arse and told him to make us more entertaining. We should definitely score with that line up anyway
