    Barry McGuure

    A young 6 foot 2 inch centre half signs from Motherwell to the end of the season. I'm guessing that means Semple returning to Sheffield Utd ?

    I think you could be correct.

    This guy seems to have a degree of flexibility which is the main asset that Naysmith has targeted so he is more than welcome aboard and hopefully he can make a significant contribution to our play off drive.

    Either Semple is going or we are going to attempt to play a record number of defender's.

    I think it’s pretty safe to say Semple is going back to Sheffield United.

    Hope he plays at Inverness though.

    Far more sensible for Naysmith to play Semple on Saturday and let McGuire have an extra weeks training to settle in. If Semple is on his way then I'm sure we'll all say he has been a real asset to us and a credit to himself.Would be good to think his time at Queens can give him the springboard for a good career down south.

    Semple said when he arrived that he wanted to play as many games as possible after a serious injury.

    He has certainly done that , which hopefully Sheffield Utd have seen and maybe push some other players our way.

    He has been excellent for such a young Centre Back. Very calm and comfortable on the ball. Wins almost every header he goes for and has never been bullied by any opposition centre forward.

    Pleased we have acted so quickly in getting a replacement......

    We already had a replacement though, Michael Doyle and with Brownlie apparently not too far away is this signing really needed ?

    It's strange how there is no mention in the club news of Semple returning with us assuming the club has acted quickly with McGuure as the replacement.

    Brownlie will be miles off the pace when he returns. Something we could do without

    That's a good point Mug. Sheffield United, a big side, will have a massive squad compared to ours and because the amount of competitive games Semple has had, might be inclined to send us more. This could depend on how long Naysmith / Anderson are with us as I'm sure it will be because of their contacts that Calum arrived in the first place.

    Definitely but Brownlie would only be needed as cover if we played Fordyce and Doyle at centre half thus leaving McGuure as a bit of a pointless signing.
    Natural right back wouldn't go a miss but imo now that we have Low, top priority has to be another striker.
    Gavin Reilly on loan would be a awesome pairing with Dobbie.

    McGuire at centre back would allow us to play a natural right back (Doyle). i fail to see why his signing is pointless

    Why would you assume Doyle will play right back?.

    He has hardly played there even though we have had Semple.

    He`d be even less likely to have done so if we didn`t have 2 other centre halfs. We`ve already got 2 right backs. I`m trying to make the point that signing another one is far from a priority given our threadbare squad.

    Doyle isn't a natural right back and has more than proved himself at centre half. Can't see Mercer being dropped as Naysmith seems to rate him.

    If Semple is staying he's not going to be impoving central defense and means we'll just have a extra defender warming the bench for no reason unless the plan is two central defenders in midfield lol

    That’s Callum Semples loan deal officially over so McGuire must be his instant replacement

    Nah!!! Just thought I’d post it for a laugh. What do you think the word officially means ?
