    The I'd be surprised if it was permanent. Sure will be clarified soon enough.

    Dumbarton fans saying he's a good player and similar to Ralston. As long as he's as good i'll be happy.

    looks like we are trying to pick off the better players from our opponents from last season which imho is better than hoping sh*te cast offs from the prem or has-beens would do a job, and probably cheaper.

    We should've done this from day 1. Cherry pick the better championship players, let's hope it works.

    Thought everyone had concluded we were just going to sign Eastern European duds under Csaba...?

    So far then:


    Fyvie has re-signed
    Fraser Aird (winger)
    Sam Wardrop (defender)
    Maybe Nicky Clark (striker)

    are aird or clark any better than keetings or McMullan when we signed them? are they going to get us up and keep us up? Not saying we don't need a clear out, but also part of management is getting the best out of players.

    These guys are Championship level footballers and by all accounts, we're signing them on 2 year deals. It's a bit concerning if we are to go up tbh.

    We need to get the RIGHT type of signing in ASAP.

    St Mirren got their signings in last year very quickly and therefor had a full squad together for a full pre season and it obviously helped them.

    The situation especially with Fyvie didn't help us at the start of last season, he was our best player and took him about 8 games into the season for him to get up to speed. No use.

    Focus has to be on getting promoted first. If these players are better than last season than that’s a start. If promotion is gained then there’s another pre season with more money to add to squad. The players signed this summer might then be squad players if not good enough to play every week in the Premiership. Great point made too about Whitfieldarab- get the signings in as quickly as possible and make sure they’re ready for the off in August.

    Whilst we'd all like to see new signings coming in asap the fact is we won't be returning to pre season training for about 4-5 weeks I wouldn't have thought so we don't need to panic just yet.

    Important we take our time and get the right players with the right mentality about them rather than signing people up quickly just to try and appease sections of our support

    The target of an 18 man squad and all the archin about to ship players out before we could sign players like Fyvie was feckin shocking. I really hope MM took notes about what St Mirren, and a good number of other teams did last season and the squad have the time to gel in time for the new manager to come in.

    Need a player equal in ability to Fyvie though.

    When i said that Ross was building his squad quickly you came back with a post that they were mostly from the lower league's and you never thought they were a threat,mind you Smedum actually accused me of being a ST Mirren supporter because i thought they would be dangerous.
    You were correct about their origin but the manager signing them knew them well from managing in that league whereas our manager is being given players he know's F ALL about,actually i do not think our manager even know's his own players never mind those from another team.

    I for one have to put my hand up to say I was wrong cause I thought st mirrens pre season signings were poor compared to ours. How wrong was I?

    When i looked at them after Whitfield Arab posted their origin's i only had one nagging doubt and that was Jack Ross being a better judge of a player than McKinnon(Toshney says it all to be honest),however i would say that Ray is a better manager than Shabba and if i could only choose between our last two appointment's for next season Ray would win hands down.
    The irony of my above post is i do not think Ray would get us up next season so F only know's where we will finish with Shabba,hopefully out of the division one play offs.
