    They have something we will never have. The delusion of a scotsman journalist who proclaims winning trophies isnt important its relegating utd. So need to gel they reached their Nirvana.

    Important to note - the doon derby whilst the greatest moment of most of funsters life was actually meaningless - we were already going down.

    The funster vote this week however. Who knows what might have happened Politically with Sevco and spfl if the funsters and their ceo had not performed an embarrassing u turn in order to promote us

    Many thanks to the Fun - the gift that keeps on giving

    Re the new signings needed, a midfielder with the license to be creative, not convinced Harkes is that despite his potential.
    Better still a 5 in midfield with 2 of Kirkwood/McInally/Bowman giving a 3 of Gauld/Russell/Allen/Bannon room to pick holes and supply the Shanklands aided by a partner to hold up and link up.
    A central defence with instructions to defend and not be wannabe midfield maestros. Would have loved to have seen a Butcher/Watson pairing develop but got to think now we're up we can attract a decent standard. Surely a Petric out there waiting to be discovered and a solid right back Holt type
    Another Andy Robertson would be the icing but sadly Robson is nowhere near, shame cos we've got previous of top class left backs, Malpas, Kopel to name but 2.

    A counter attacking fit and pacy team has been what most of us were brought up on.

    Tippy tappy slow and sideways us not us, Robbie needs to study the old tapes and get his team on the case.

    We definitely need both pace and physique to the squad.
    A goalkeep, two full backs, two centre backs . A creative midfielder and two forwards (one of them a wide left) mimumum.

    There will need to be a mini clearout to achieve this. Sporle, King, Deniz, Bingham, Reynolds or Connolly Sow and Watson.

    I'd be happy to reestablish in first season back, with second season the one where we look to kick on.

    A proper winger for either side, a better creative midfielder, two centre backs and back up left back.

    Iíd also like to see the boy Nisbet, although I think Shanks will stay another year.

    I agree, we need another winger. McMullan can be really good and there is definite potential but I think he'll always be inconsistent so we need something else too.

    His work rate/attitude when fully fit is outstanding. His pace is pretty fast. His trickery is decent. The problem is his crossing of a ball for a pro player is diabolical. I know he has put in a few good assists but on average the times he has skinned or just went past a player and delivered either an accurate or dangerous ball is very very low.

    I like him and always want him to do well but averages don't lie, and moving up a league against faster and more savvy player might prove to be a step to far for the lad.

    Happy to be proven wrong tho.... over to you Paul.
