I've read this week that we're interested in Michael O'Halloran of St Johnstone and John Soutar of Dundee United. Both sound like ideal signings and would fit in well with our style of play and be pretty sure of making the starting 11. That's vital for a career move and they just have to look at an ex-Hibs player, now Celtic, to confirm that one.

Kfraser Soutar would be a good deal if we could capture him but mate we ain't playing a game of Fifa here. We won't get players like that until we get to top flight. SA left hibs for money and now he's kicking himself as he ain't playing. Why is people still going on about this guy SA he made his messy bed let him lay in it. No but honest Soutar would be a good signing young too.

There are dreamers and believers. The former want Celtic to beat Aberdeen so we can clinch second. The latter want Aberdeen to win. Dave King landed in South Africa with a hundred quid in his pocket. A believer I reckon.

You've got to laugh off the hypocrisy of some of the posters. On the one hand they say 'back your team if you're a real fan'and then disagree like a rash if you say back our current midfielders as a better bet than a 33 year old Steven Davis.

Spot on kfraser too many on here contradict themselves constantly. It rarely works out when players go back to their former clubs. We are not a retirement home for former players looking for a final payday.


2.) 16 Feb 2018 11:37:52
Agreed guys. I would have taken Naismith back but in general best to move on. Dorrans, Jack, Murphy, Goss, Docherty, Holt, McCrorie. Pretty strong. One man doesn't make a team.


3.) 16 Feb 2018 12:01:56
Doesn't make any sense what you have just spouted. We as fans are constantly wanting to improve our team / club. If you are telling me that Steven Davis wouldn't get in our team your mental. A rangers supporter also, left on good terms and has done wonders down south. If he wanted to come back for a season or two we would be mad not to make contact with him.
A retirement home and final pay day. Maybe 20 years ago, but we simply cannot afford the wages that he will be on at Southampton, he would be taking a huge wage decrease and maybe he wants to help his boyhood club get back to the top.


4.) 16 Feb 2018 12:53:05
He could have stayed and helped his boyhood club get back to the top instead of fleeing like a rat off the titanic in our hour of need! Rangers supporter my a@#e!


5.) 16 Feb 2018 14:56:44
Did we not get a fee for Davis?
Apart from that football is a short career, do you think he would have been picked by Northern Ireland if he was playing in the fourth tier of Scottish football?
Too many people live in the past, wonder what they would have done in the same situation!


6.) 16 Feb 2018 17:11:52
Doiger, you managed to contradict yourself in one sentence, well done there.


7.) 16 Feb 2018 18:14:38
To all the outraged and and disagree button fanatics I ask who you'd drop for Davis. Let's say a midfield of Candeias, Docherty, Dorrans and Murphy. Subs, let's say Jack, Holt or Rossiter and Windass. The two upfront being Moralos and Cummings. Who would you drop for Davis, a 33 year old not getting game time at Southampton and likely in doing so, damage a young player's career and learning curve? If you agree press the disagree button.


8.) 16 Feb 2018 20:27:49
Davis is a better player than anyone we’ve got in fact he’d arguably be the best player in the country if he came back


9.) 16 Feb 2018 21:32:05
Because none of our current midfield are close to the quality of Davis. This doesn't mean that I don't support any of our current players.


10.) 16 Feb 2018 22:00:40
having watched davis closely since he moved to EPL he’s improved playing with and against better players these last few years

i fully respect the players we have and think in goss docherty dorrans jack windass murphy mcrorie etc we have a good core midfield

but let’s be clear even at 33 if there’s any chance to get steve davis back to Ibrox (which i highly doubt) we shd move mountains to get the lad back - he’s a step above what we have, and is playing in arguably the best league in the world

id take him back in a heartbeat


11.) 16 Feb 2018 22:07:23
Aye Southampton paid a fee but it was nothing to do with anything Davis did. He can gtf with the rest of the rats. In any case why would we want a 33 year old when we plenty younger midfielders with more potential


12.) 16 Feb 2018 22:10:11
Really don't understand the desperation on here to bring former players back who are too old now. We need to sign players who will make us a profit when we sell them on that way we won't need to obtain payday loans because shareholders are fed up providing soft loans to enable us to survive!


13.) 16 Feb 2018 22:12:12
Yeah we got about 800k for him I believe . Ridiculous to expect a player of EPL quality to play in the lowest tier of Scottish football against plumbers and postmen every week.

Reading that Danny Wilson wanted to stay at the club. It just doesn't make sense that the club wouldn't offer him a new contract. He's a damn fine footballer and playing at his best when he left.

kfraser

1.) 13 Feb 2018 10:30:33
These things happen the DoF obviously felt that his wage would be better used elsewhere for the rest of the season and moving forward. I feel we need better in the long run in order to be challenging year in year out but very grateful for his service in this 2nd stint here!


2.) 13 Feb 2018 10:30:02
Its also reported he got sickened by pedro by being left out so organised things from then, guess pretty much everything was organised for him to go


3.) 13 Feb 2018 12:27:42
I think Wilson has been unfortunate here. With Martin deal on the table we couldn't keep Wilson alves and cordosa and unfortunately for Wilson nobody wanted the other 2 .


4.) 13 Feb 2018 11:53:25
One in one out? don’t think Martin would have been brought in if Danny was to stay


5.) 13 Feb 2018 13:13:50
Feel slightly sorry for Wilson but he had also been keeping his options open and had the USA gig lined up.

As much as like Bruno as a leader and player I don’t believe he will play for us again. His World Cup hopes are decreasing by the day and if he has any remainjng hopes he needs to cancel his contract with us and get deal in Portugal or Italy. The best solution would have been for Bruno to leave in January and for Wilson to extend his contract as he was playing well under Murty and although fitness has been a concern, at 26 he had much to give.

Anyway young Bates looks like a young McLeish, let’s get the boy signed and he and McClorie can form backbone if the defence in the longer term.


6.) 13 Feb 2018 13:30:43
How can you say he won’t play for us again? What happens if Martin or Bates gets injured or suspended or has a loss of form?


7.) 13 Feb 2018 18:57:49
Even if he does cancel contract he can't play for anyone else until window reopens! So that won't happen


8.) 13 Feb 2018 19:14:42
ArthurD, we only have 11 league games left and 3 in the cup. Bruno is no where near fit and ready to play. In unlikely circumstances that Martin or Bates get injured Cardoso would come in. Also hopefully McCrorie will be available soon. I love Bruno but it’s clear that at this stage in his career he does not have the physicality or fitness to play in SPL. Big concern is that unless both parties agree an exit he will be on the payroll next season. Hope some Portuguese team take in the next month and we save a substantial wage.


9.) 13 Feb 2018 20:03:32
Not really interested in Alves. Been abit of disappointment. I'm sure he has helped young players in training but on the pitch not done much. Is he on 2 year contract? If so sell him.


10.) 13 Feb 2018 20:13:39
Personally think the reason Wilsons contract was not renewed was down to Bruno Alves deal with the Italian team collapsing, Mark Allen has a budget and targets and if the Alves deal went through you would probably find Wilson would have had a new contract .


11.) 13 Feb 2018 20:19:30
Bankie, that's some comparison to say that our centre half david bates is a young alex mcleish! Hope you're right though pal! If bates gets anywhere near as good a centre half that big mcleish was, then we'll have a terrific no nonsense out and out class centre half, on our books!


12.) 13 Feb 2018 21:49:55
Bates will never be the same as McLeish. He was one of the best centre halves Scotland has ever produced Bates is nowhere near that


13.) 13 Feb 2018 21:57:07
I flew out to Prague for a couple of days on Saturday from Edinburgh and Bruno was in the departure lounge (I'm guessing he was going back to Portugal as gate 1A's flight was going to Porto) .
It doesn't really sit right with me that he's had so many injuries in his short spell with us and seems to spend a large amount of his recuperation time back in Portugal.
Then again maybe I'm getting cynical in my old age.


14.) 13 Feb 2018 23:30:01
Bates still young guy but reads game very well , you can't compare him with anyone as he is still learning but def rate him, too many on here want youngsters in yet slate them if they make a mistake give the guy a chance .


 

 

03 Feb 2018 17:40:06
Today was all about horses for courses and Cummings had to start. It was made and set up for him. Murty missed the plot.

Got to love the 'I'll bite your hand off' quotes for the Morelos offer from China. We have a lot of lions posting. 35 million for Drinkwater to Chelsea. Think about it and the EPL market. One fifth of that for a 21 year old whipper snapper proven goalscorer who'll no doubt be playing for Colombia isn't a steal. No hands needing bitten off. Morelos is worth more. Needs improving on his heading but he's got the instinct for scoring and that's a commodity we've got invested on our books.

kfraser

1.) 30 Jan 2018 16:32:56
I know he’s a striker but has anyone else noticed the defensive clearances he make in our own box at set plays lol think we should hang on to him and hold out for more money later. 21 years old. Phenomenal work rate and although still a bit raw the ability is there and will only improve. Plus if Cummings hits the ground running then has a dip in form, which happens btw, we could be doing with both of them


2.) 30 Jan 2018 17:24:55
Genuinely can't see morelos being a regular for columbia anytime soon when they have Falcao, bacca, zapata, bora and hurtada ahead of him with Rodriguez and arango breaking through.

Out of interest how many times has he played for the u21? Of course a move to the epl may well change that but that's a big if and only if he's scoring 20+ league goals a season down there.


3.) 30 Jan 2018 18:58:23
I would seriously say 15 mil or he stays. Before everyone shoots me down, I don’t believe he’s worth that right now after half a season but we need to start playing the modern transfer game. It’s all about perception, there’s no magic calculator that will tell you what a player is truly worth. If we slap that price tag on him it shows we won’t be messed about with low offers, for example McKay and others. Then even if he doesn’t go for that much at least it will still be more than what we would’ve got otherwise

The Rossiter mystery goes on and I agree with you. The causes or the extent of the problem are never explained except in very vague terms which even a doctor wouldn't understand. I wouldn't want Davis back. A good player in his prime but we've got better in midfield now.

It's all about points and the best way to that is playing your best 11. No favouritism, no rewarding loyalty for the sake of it, no carrying passengers off form. If Goss is better than Docherty, he starts whether he's loan or not.

Tedebear, most of us will get where you're coming from. Third best isn't good enough for any of us. That said, the players you mention are good players, two of them youngsters who'll only get better and Holt can't be faulted. There are others out injured. I think we have as good a midfield as any and on any given day it seems like any team can just about beat another in this league. Hearts and Kilmarnock beat Celtic and we should have last time out. We're not as bad as you may think.
