Ash Taylor

Again. Or he might repel high balls off the likes of fucking Hamilton for 89 minutes and pop up with a goal or 2 off corners to get us the three points.

 

Just saying.

Smashing wee player with exactly the right attitude, and puts a bit of bite into midfield.

 

BHH

Classic clueless

Maybe a bit unfair on Fyvie, as I think injuries played their part in stunting his progression. However, it reminds me of a situation we had with another player who came up through our youth system, years ago - Andy Bagshaw.

 

Physically a beast compared to the other kids...and dominated throughout the age levels. However, the other youngsters eventually caught up with him. I walked past him, just off Union Street, about 10 years ago... and was amazed actually at how small he was! From what I'd read and heard about him... I was expecting a Scottish Diego Costa! Think he must have just stopped growing and developing physically when quite young. That's the lottery of nature I guess!

He has costas eyebrows, that's it

Oddly enough, this pic just popped up on my Twitter feed apropos of nothing.

I’m thinking that’s Curtis main on the left but I’m not sure who the one on the right with the pony tail is?

You know who's still available as a decent squad player?

 

Fraser Fyvie. Ex-United captain.

 

Currently on a free.

He stood along the bar from Billy Stark and I in the casino around 4am on Saturday.

 

Made eye contact with us and left immediately.

Isn't Fyvie going to Cove? No longer fit enough to sustain playing full time football?

Don’t think his attitude would fit with their manager. Plus don’t think he would break into that midfield ahead of Scully and Yule

How long until fans are well and truly on Taylor’s back? First misplaced pass? First defeat?

 

Can’t wait to hear 90 minutes of people abusing him at home games.

Post nudes, India.

This "lazy scouting" argument is baffling. We've a whole midfield to source as well as some creative players attacking who can break teams down and probably at least another striker. Central defence is not a priority and what we needed was depth, why would we waste scouting resources on a position that isn't a priority?

 

Are we to believe that Ash was being tracked for a return before being released by Northampton or did we just seize on the opportunity due to our actual defensive targets choosing to look elsewhere? Agree our backline is not really the priority area for strengthening given we've tied down Consi & Logan although we're effectively starting with the same players that didn't have the best of seasons, especially at home. There's still a big question mark over the future of McKenna and its entirely possible if a sizeable bid comes in he'll be off, so Id be disappointed if our scouts aren't planning for that eventuality.

He says in his redtv interview that it was a chance meeting with our scout at a northampton game that set it off

Wonder who our scout was looking at if that’s the case?

Scout was Russ Richardson.  He was at the game looking at someone else... he was sat next to Ash Taylor and asked him why he was on the sidelines?  Was he injured or suspended?  Neither was the response... he explained he was surplus to requirements and the rest, unfortunately, is history.

 

EDIT: misread your question!

Its things like that last paragraph that make me realise there's no point in engaging most people on here anymore

 

What fucking relevance is there in saying that?

 

The window isn't even open yet and there is NO way we will start with considine left back

 

The fire now is too big for me to control, I'm out

 

I guess that'll get the same reaction as Thatcher when she left Downing St in tears.

Sadly, he has failed to carry through with his threat. Again.
