You'd be wrong if you thought we hadn't explored the potential signings of Turnbull and Hastie. Unfortunately they are probably out of our price range, they have made more first team appearances than Ferguson whether thats been at Motherwell or on loan and are very much first team regulars. The compensation demand would be much higher than Ferguson for these players. You'd be looking at 350k to 500k for these guys each.

If the directors like paying peanuts they will keep getting monkeys. It's time to think big if you want success. Pay nuts and stay chasing Celtic and sevco.Get them signed up Milne and company.

But the speculation was it would accumulate. That's what you get for signing patients out of the accident and emergency unit.

Yeah, but it didn't did it?

Therefore, it is mere speculation to think that speculation leads to accumulation

Well Mcinnes and Milne the speculators that speculated that it would accumulate needs to go to speculatorsavers for an eye test. Then a trip to the ARI for a brain test.

Thats a acute observation and based on your speculation we can indeed infer a lack of accumulation

So a similar fee to what we paid for Kenny McLean then.
Worth the money most likely & certainly worth the gamble/risk.
Better investment than some of our recent 'experienced' player signing fees.


Love to know how much we have wasted on the loan of Wilson for practically ZERO return.
£400k on May plus (very likely) one of top earners wages, or certainly above the average.


Spending decent fees on players with huge potential is the only way for a team like ours to succeed long term.

We need to be making the effort to get such players BEFORE the arse cheek cunts Hoover them all up & ruin most of them but then have them outwith our price range & are forced to loan them & help them either improve for them (Christie) or for them to sell on again.

ANY of these decent young players (going into the last six moths of their deal especially) & we should be all over their agents enquiring about them.

Picking up a deal like Ferguson every season or so would be great business. Devlin also.

See if we can find some future full backs especially.
A left sided winger (McLennan is our right sided one)
Creative mids

Strikers are obviously the hardest to get on the cheap. Which makes the Cosgrove deal a possible master class from McInnes. Time will tell but looks great so far in terms of investment lol

Well, you say zero return, but off the top of my head he is the only reason for 3 points at livi

So, well suppose what I am saying is you are havering, as per

Well I guess the fact I actually said PRACTICALLY zero return would cover a couple of important goals.

My worry is that our budget will be reduce for next season due to cost of the training ground, stadium and reduced prize money (assuming we don’t finish 2nd).

We complain when the bigger clubs take away our young talents, but that is the law of the jungle; dog eat dog, survival of the fittest, only the strong survive,  and so absolutely no reason why we shouldn't be nicking players off diddy teams like Hamilton, Motherwell and St Johnstone etc etc

Its our scouting that lets us down. We either didn't bother to watch May or Forrester prior to signing them, or our scouting needs a massive overhaul. 600K on absolute shite.

I'd prefer to see us spend the money on known quantities from the SPFL if we're not going to do our due diligence. Much less chance of signing total duds like May.

You can say this but his shite attitude & general form in the majority of other games has been a large contributor to us failing to gain points in other games. Which could be very costly come the end of the season.

Wilson has been a huge waste of cash though thus far. No matter how you try deny it with one great game v Livi.
He wins us the Scottish cup & he will go a long way to giving us a return on investment.

All that is besides the point anyway really with regards the subject in hand. Unless you are actually trying to argue that Wilson has been a better investment than Ferguson this season, or in general simply because of one decent game v Livi.

Anyway. Ferguson has won us more games than Wilson has this season also.

Basically you are just making a bigger cunt of yourself with every post on this subject
