🤣

 

I'd hope that retiring from playing would be reflected in his salary but I fear that it won't. 

 

Wouldn't surprise me if his 4 year deal included the possibility of giving up playing at some point but that the salary would remain intact.

 

Very Levein-esque I would suggest.

 

Not having a pop at Naismith, btw. Quality player but there's absolutely no doubt that his days as an on field asset are numbered.

 

 

Definitely, I think his influence is important but not at £5k a week. Ideally a new reduced contract to play sparingly and move into coaching. 
Hopefully Damour will find a club, even if we have to pay a small fee to get him out.

If players can’t be arsed listening or take advice from a player who has achieved more in the game than 99% of them have, or ever will, then I suggest they are the ones who need to gtf, certainly not Steven Naismith

I agree last season wasn’t his finest, but saying he’s finished is a bit dramatic. Would walk into any other team below old firm. Will still score goals

Fair point. He would, but then you need to ask how many minutes you’re getting for how much money. If you get 15-20 starts out him now you’re doing very well.

I stand by my initial opinion in that Berra cost us both finals. Whilst you can argue Souttar did this and that, he's where he is supposed to be. Berra doesnt get close enough to Eduard meaning Bobby is more inclined to stay in his goal, and fresh air swipes a simple ball to him. Souttar cant be blamed for the fact that Eduard is then one on one, when its Berra's mistake that got him there. 

 

Anyway this is a transfer thread and dont want derail it

 

Any signings please

I disagree but agree with derailing the thread. 
We all need a new signing to talk about no doubt about that.

I was told along with the kit and sponsor stuff we would have 2 in for pre season starting and we expected 1 this week to be announced not heard anything different 👍🏻

Next ST renewal window opens at 3pm, would the Club plan a signing announcement for then so people stampede to the shop waving greasy fivers?

That’s my point of view, the away game at Morton was a real insight. I obviously heard him doing at home games but he actually gave me a sare heid. He was on at “Walker” the whole game and he played well that day. Halkett was especially bad at almost doing the exact opposite of what his captain was asking him to do. 
If they’re not listening to him with his experience, personality and charisma I think it’s unlikely they listen to the manager.

If it’s to be this week maybe it’s tomorrow since they’ve moved up the next phase of the season tickets to this afternoon instead of tomorrow?

Maybe but the folk waiting to renew might well need a wee push and good signings will hopefully do that.

Hi just having a wee spy on the interweb and noticed that some mystery Scottish club is tracking Norwegian Patrick Berg CM 23yr old ? Has big James been sorting out his small change again ? From what I can see his club is looking for 1.5 mil and he's on about £1500 quid a week I KNOW IS A LONG SHOT BUT YOU NEVER KNOW .

First goal Souttar was napping. If he'd known where Edouard was he could have tracked him into the box and Bobby wouldn't have came out. Reckless on Bobby's part, but Berra should have given him a shout to let him know he was coming across to cover. If he did and Bobby has ignored the shout then that's his fault but a well timed tackle from Berra (which he's perfectly capable of) and the threat is dealt with. Bobby should also have saved the pen. 2nd goal was all Berra. Basically blame his injury for that one, because if he hadn't done his hammy previously, he might have been able to stretch to block the through ball. 

 

Every goal involves one or more errors at some point in the build up to it. Berra did play a large part in the 2-1 cup final defeat ad he cost us a lot of goals latterly in his career - just was nowhere near the player he was before his injury - but the real reason we lost that the way we did was Haring having to go off, same way the reason we bombed in the LC semi was Naismith getting injured very early doors. In both cases those very key players going off disrupted our plan, caused uncertainty in our team and gave Celtic encouragement. Berra without Haring in front of him was an easy target for Celtic. Naismith off removed our main attacking weapon and - at that time - talisman.

Not sure what you mean? He’s not the manager? If they do ignore the manager they get moved on. 

Fair enough, I only read as far back as where Robbie got a mention, my bad

Honestly not sure what the hold up is this week, not heard anything since Tuesday evening. Only thing I could think is we plan to make a double announcement and are waiting a few more days but that’s just a guess

The bit in bold is nonsense. In the 2019 final, it was Peter Haring's injury that left our back four exposed.

In the 2020 final, Kingsley and Wighton score their penalties and it's game over.

 

No-one single handedly cost us those games.

Agree entirely.  This  anti-Naismith trend is tiresome and totally OTT.

No news today then?

 

After all the build up it better be good when it does arrive. 😊

I think we're all secretly hoping for an Allan Campbell type signing but if we listen to what we're being told, it will be mostly English League One or Two.

Given Campbell will cost around £500k I think anyone hoping for that sort of signing is a tad over optimistic.

No idea if it's correct but it says Lewis Ferguson cost Aberdeen 239k. I think the 500k is a bit overpriced. They could be trying to work out a deal but I doubt it.

Unless of course any Benefactors just happen to assist or we do a part exchange with another player such as Roberts.

No probs, barely on topic really as Naisy retiring frees up some wages for  signings. The positives and negatives of the wee mans contribution are interesting, to me anyway 😆

I think he was younger and it went to a tribunal. I think

they get a cut of a future transfer too. 
£237.50k apparently 😆https://www.invernessreds.co.uk/hamilton-accounts-confirm-cost-of-ferguson-deal/

well, I think if we were to have a signing it would be announce around 5 at the latest, the fact no teases from Hearts twitter suggests there is no one today.

Ooooft, heids above parapet.  Good luck lads


Looks like a disappointing end to the week.
 

Apologies if I got anyone’s hopes up. I’d been given a wee wink that pen to paper was made by a close friend who works close to the club. I’m not usually one to stick my neck out and do this but was genuinely convinced as they are usually radio silent on this kind of thing.
 

Wasn’t given any name or nationality but was told midfielder and defender were the positions from down south.

Yeah I doubt it too but it was the mystery bit that got me cause the weedgie press usually  are all over whatever the Old Firm are up to and after a quick scan the only mention of Celtic is on some tranfer forum to the fact that he's a mystery signing for somebody and they hope its them ? Like you said looks like a decent player busy and likes a wee baw over the tap perfect for Gino

Ferguson was only 18 when Aberdeen signed him whereas Campbell is 22 and been at Motherwell for 10 years. The compensation is based on the number of years a player has been at a club along with how much hasbeen spent developing them so that is probably why the difference in the fees.
