BBC gossip page says that’s John Gallagher staying until the end of the season. Pish.

 

He shouldn't be near the team if everyone is fit. Big IF I suppose.

He shouldn't be in the team if Joey Deacon is fit!

That’s another half seasons wage wasted now that could have gone on an actual worthwhile player in January

And maybe more to come in the future.
Atlanta cast offs that aren’t getting anywhere near their team, but are deemed good enough for us (like Gallagher)... but aren’t (like Gallagher).

With minimum (if fit) appearance clauses in the deals it seems.

Otherwise, wtf is McInnes playing him so often for if not being forced?

Have to say if it was Gallagher who played second half V rangers I would be happy enough but if it was the Gallagher who's played any other game this season then it seems bizarre.

That's a bit harsh. He looked amazing against those Lapland bakers whilst about 3 months ahead of everyone fitness wise.

Leigh and Ross might get offers to extend.

Who'll be understudy to Lewis if Cerny and Rogers leave?

In my opinion, Ross & Rogers will get released
Cerny will sign a 1 year deal
Leigh will sign a 2 year deal.

Who knows, it’ll be months down the line unfortunately

Leigh will be wishing he signed a new deal when it was spoke about a few months ago. Likely to get offered a fairly reduced deal if he gets offered one at all now due to the deficit we will have in our finances.

I don't think he ever had a contract put before him. Why would we? He's on loan so we are only paying a proportion of his wages right now...but we do have an option to buy at the end of the loan. If we had signed him earlier we would be paying him at least wages that match his NAC Breda wages plus the fee owed to Breda for his signature. It would have been especially crazy to do it when he injured himself and was out for 4 months.

 

I'm sure he's fairly comfortable about the situation. Even if we chose not to sign him when his loan is up, he still has a year on his contract in Holland to run. But I'm sure we will be getting him onboard at some point.

All players and clubs will be in the same boat now though, everyone will be offering much lower wages to new players than they would have done 1-2 months ago. 

 

Still hoping he signs though.

And then there is the player that we almost had over the line on jan 31st, but which was apparently put on the back burner till the next transfer window. Presumably, another player sourced via our link up with Atlanta.

 

Greg Leigh - decent enough but I'd not shed TOO many tears if we didn't land him on a permanent deal. Time to look at produceing our own full backs - how tough can that be?

 

Frank Ross - I liked a lot of what I've seen of him (much more potential that Scott Wright in my opinion) but that hasn't been over the last 24 months. Injuries have ravaged that period of his career and for how long do you keep giving a player 12 month deals to prove himself? Difficult one. Back fit now but with zero chance of proving himself. Even moreso with the plethora of centre mids that we have. Probably end up at Cove next season.

I wouldn’t be surprised if we see some sort of press release in a week or so saying the first team squad have agreed to reduce their wages by 20% or the likes for the next few months, along with some more US investment & combined with Dave Cormack & the board putting money in to get us through to whenever we’re playing again.

The huns are usually good for a nonsensical statement...let’s see what they’re doing to fill the huge black hole in their accounts... that should be fun.

Frank Ross really only showed it in 2 or 3 first team games.
One free kick against the scum, he was ok the following game at Dundee & he played well in a game at Pittodrie against St Mirren.
But as you say, two years ago now nearly.
Cove is a good shout.

You never know, sell him to Cove with some kind of buy back?

 

Yeah the St Mirren game at the start of last season was the game I was alluding to, and a Scottish Cup home game v some diddy team that escapes me, the season before. Not exactly top class opponents so he may end up being another Jamie Masson, who knows? He was another player I had right high hopes for.

Greg Leigh - fat chance we'll pay a fee for him now. He can go back to Holland or maybe we can loan him again.

Frank Ross - cya later.

Danny Rogers - cya later.

Tomas Cerny - if we extend the season he'll get an extension. If it's straight on to a new season then possibly cya later.
