3 months.... thats about as long as he has looked good since we signed him. Shame for the guy, looked a top prospect at Hamilton.

Which is where he might end up.

Waste of a decent wage for 80% of his 3 years here.

Absolute stick on to be released. 
Might see a centre half coming in, in January as we only have three really, albeit McCrorie & Leigh can fill in if needed.

Shame as on his day he’s a really good defender. We must be looking at whole new back line next season.

We don't have a single centre back contracted beyond next summer. 

Although it looks like Considine will trigger an extra year's extension. 

We probably need to bring in 3 centre backs next summer.  Which will be fun and games no doubt

Agreed. Hopefully Hoban stays so we only need to replace Devlin/Mckenna/Taylor.

It's a shame for the boy but I had completely forgotten about him until he came on as a sub at half time the other week.

Surely even DMC wouldn't offer him another deal next summer.

You say that like it's a bad thing! Based on the last few months performances, i'd bin every single one of the CB's! 

Hopefully Hoban signs on and we can get someone decent in to play alongside him. Considine can be back up. Leigh can play LB and if only we had an international RB....

It's not a bad thing if we get better players in. 

Poor planning though from a management perspective having to replace your first choice and back up central defenders all at the same time. Doesn't seem to be anyone knocking on the door from the youth system. 

I still remember the shit show when he had to build an entire new central midfield a couple of years ago.  We've only just about recovered from that now.

Ash Taylor - 1 year extension. 

Certainty.

Devlin has had some rotten luck,  he looked superb at one point.  what a shame for the guy and the club

It's going to be the same with strikers.  We're going to need 3 of them as well, possibly as early as January if Cosgrove is sold next month.

Aye he looked a great signing that first 6 months of his first full season. 

Injury prone being an understatement though. Both before and during his time here.  He was recovering from a serious injury the first 6 months he came here.

Another  recruitment disaster 

It was well documented  he had poor fitness record and injury issues

Unbelievable  we still bring in players with these issues

A good wage wasted. 

Cannot see him coming back

But it always going to happen

I think he'll struggle to get a gig anywhere. I'm not sure Hamilton (or anyone) would even risk him on their lowest first team wage as he's just too often to be found on the treatment table. 

Pay-as-you-play might be the only solution for him. Wouldn't at all surprise me to see him retire though.

Pay as you play doesn't exist though. Its a myth. 

A low basic wage with a high appearance fee maybe.

Add Leigh & Logan to that list. Both will be gone I’d think

Unless Hernandez turns out to be decent we will need a right back as well. I’m not sold on Leigh either so possibly need a left back. I know Hayes can play there but it’s such a waste of attacking threat.

He got called up to the scotland squad a couple of times didnt he? Thats when folk were saying he and McKenna were the next McLeish and Miller.

Will be binned in Jan.

Hopefully. Leigh is nowhere near the standard we require if we want to improve.

The same DMC that resigned Taylor. From a club he was an integral part in getting relegated IIRC? 
 

I fucking hate ash Taylor. 
 

I wouldn't put it past McHun
