Another pay off, though, as Gallagher will be taking a huge hit on his wages.

How much has last summer’s fuck ups cost us?

About £2.5k per week difference maybe?   
Would he be on £5k per week with us, & maybe £2.5k-£3k per week at St Mirren 

The annual difference is £100k-£130k.

Gallagher is on one of the highest wages AFC have ever paid.

No we don’t we just need one good competent keeper. Having another of similar ability is just a waste of the budget when one will never play. 

You and I will just have to agree to disagree there.  You need at least two good players for every position because they will push each other to excel, plus we need to cover for suspensions and injuries.  A player who knows he has no competition knows he doesn't have to fight for his place.

Seems a bit daft to intentionally scrimp to have a shite back up keeper if you can afford a better one. 

As others have said, the competition should improve general performance as well as reducing risk if your first choice loses form/gets injured/gets sent off and suspended. 

At least a decent back up will keep you competitive if he's called upon.

Lewis is more than capable and for me still deserves to be number one. Any keeper playing behind that back line last year would have struggled. The hesitancy of the central pairing, the initial high pressing full backs Glass persisted with which left the defence hopelessly exposed and basic errors all left Lewis basically fucked. 

Get a settled back 4, a competent centre half pairing and Joe will be back to his best in no time.

If Gallagher goes that leaves Watkins and Ramirez  as the only signings remaining from our summer 2021 window.

Gallagher and Watkins are arguably McInnes signings, so that would leave Ramirez as Glass's only summer signing left, and I suspect he'll be gone pretty soon.

No swap for Charles Dunne, he is god awful. I'd rather we paid off Gallagher and just cut our losses, or loaned him to St Mirren with them covering 75% of his wage. If it was a loan would mean they don't have to pay him a signing fee so could afford more in wages. I'd rather see one of the youngsters sit on the bench and be the 5th choice centre half than Dunne be it.

£5,500k per week I read, it won’t be far away from that. 

Put it towards someone else further up the pitch.

I think Lewis is past it. He's not going to get better with age like wine and Craig Gordon.  We can find a better keeper.

That keeper does need to be pretty good though.  It looks like our first choice back four will consist of a rookie from Forest, a good CB from Wycombe that has no experience of the SPFL, an Irish CB that has played plenty games but not at this level, plus a young and inexperienced MacKenzie at LB.  The keeper that stands behind that back four needs to be experienced and confident.  Lewis would be OK, but I'd prefer better.

Goalie isn’t like outfield tho where you do need two for each as you rest as the season goes on. Goalies are generally undroppable unless they are horrendous. 

Plenty teams only go with one really good goalie and an average back up who hardly plays. Be better of letting Lewis go and instead of signing hladky getting one really good keeper in with 3 quarter of the wages of both put together.

Like I said, we'll have to agree to disagree.

Everybody needs competition, plus you never know what'll happen.

Every decent team in a decent league needs two quality goalies.

The mistakes and inability to save a shot aren’t his only problems tho, he couldn’t start a counterattack if his life depended on it and with Goodwin wanting to play with urgency Lewis and his dithering is not a good fit

There are very few clubs that pay 2 goalies a similar wage, maybe Chelsea? 

Even at like man utd/Liverpool, de gea earns 250k Allison 200k and there back ups are 5 figures, maybe 100k for Henderson. Mcgregor and Hart paid alot more than bain and mclaughlin. 

We just need a decent cerny type back up IMO. Woods was fucking wank.

They could cover £4,400 pw last season for Ronan from Wolves.

Edit - Scrub that, think that was his actual wage he was getting Wolves. No idea what St Mirren covered.

Fine in theory but you can't just rip up a contract and use the money somewhere else.
