    I think a lot will come down to which league we are playing in next season to be honest. And I don't know if we are assuming that all of the players mentioned will want a new contract.

    😂

    Thing is, if we go up, who is good enough? The same boys who took us down last season? And if we don't go up, do they deserve to stay? That's what I've based it on. Sibbald, McMann, Holt, they're just average journeyman footballers who I think we can do better than if we go up. Graham I'd possibly keep as back up. Should we not go up, then no one deserves to stay other than Moult and Mochrie (who is a work in progress with potential).

    The Clown - Would love him to be gotten tae feck in January
    Louis Moult - New 2 year deal
    Craig Sibbald - New 3 year deal
    Kevin Holt - New 2 year deal
    Scott McMann - Really dont know as he is currently one of our best players, and while he was out of position last season, i still cannot forget some of the displays he put in. New 2 year deal if he can keep up the good work.
    Kieran Freeman - Shadow of the player i thought he was. Forfar, Montrose, Brechin bound.
    Archie Meekison - Need to see more before i commit, but minded to follow the consensus that he is too soft.
    Declan Glass - You cannot deny the laddie has talent and has displayed that this season, but only if he has the support on the field behind him. Not strong enough to drive us forward without that support.
    Chris Mochrie - Would give him another 2/3 year deal if he gets consistent game time and uses it well enough, but not on superstar wages.
    Flynn Duffy - Not seen enough of him to form an opinion, but he does seem to be part of a missing generation of United youth who dont have the ability to make it.
    Mathew Cudjoe - Off the boil just now, and while he has something, he isnt proving good enough to be worthy of the contract negotiations i believe he is going through.
    Sadat Anaku - Spectacular Asghar failure who should be sent back home with a pocket full of compensation.

    Ross Graham - I think this is one guy who is a victim of our circumstances over the last few seasons. He broke through as an able deputy to Mulgrew with an able mentor beside him. As it all unravelled last season, he had no chance to develop in the system employed and lack of chances given. Is he too quiet on the park though? New 2/3 year deal?

    While not on the list as contracted to 2025(?), Tony Watts tenure here needs to be looked at. This is a guy who is reported to be on a good wedge for not enough return. The sad thing is we do see flashes of what he is capable of, but we need a better return.

    I was thinking about this the other day

    Now is the time that we need to be addressing this - donít even know who at the club would be responsible for this anymore

    Hopefully JG can take some long term decisions

    Done this before looking at other responses

    Mark Birighitti 32 - bye bye

    Louis Moult 31 - definitely sign up

    Craig Sibbald 28 - definite

    Kevin Holt 30 - definite

    Scott Mcmann 27 - yes on this seasons improvement

    Kieran Freeman 23 - heís a no bad understudy. He has been good in the Prem and has fallen off this year. If cheap could keep

    Archie Meekison 21 - still got potential

    Ross Graham 22 - still young for a centre half

    Declan Glass 23 - better this season and should stay

    Chris Mochrie 20- great potential

    Flynn Duffy 20 - JG doesnít fancy him so itís goodbye

    Mathew Cudjoe 20 - yes to sign up, does have some ability and still young

    Sadat Anaku - bye bye Happy

    This is going to depend on how Mark Ogren approaches it. He zipped the wallet shut as the ship was sinking and imo Jim Goodwin has done a great job so far turning a losing team into a winning team on what is rumoured to have been an extremely tight budget.

    If we stay down we'll need to strengthen because the league will be tougher next season. If we go up we'll have to seriously strengthen just to achieve mid table safety, probably something we'd all take right now in our first season back.

    January hasn't often been a happy hunting ground for us maybe that can change if the budget is available. Problem there is can you persuade Premier standard players to join a club that might not get promoted. Otherwise we'd face another busy summer preparing for an August kick off to a new Premiership campaign. What's different this time is I trust the manager to already be identifying his targets now and will hopefully get them in to give us a chance of blending a team before the season kicks off.

    I'm going to wait a bit before commenting on the Mochries Grahams etc and see where we are at the end of January.
