Some 2nd hand info from the fans forum last night;
Polworth will have to take a pay cut to stay on next season.
Mulraney's contract from the old board was mental, apparently if we didn't get rid of him, he had a clause in his contract where his wages would double.
Contract's handed out by the previous board had some mental clauses in them in general.
The 'Bank of Dingwall' gave us 100k for Draper.
We were in for strikers who are currently playing in the Championship, wages agreed but agents scuppered the deals wanting their 10%.
We offered one particular player £600 a week but was told United 'offered double'.
Extremely hard to attract established players, we had to approach young, single players with no central belt ties. Hence Rooney, Walsh, Chalmers.
We are 6/10 in terms of first team budget. Those with a bigger one are United, County, Partick, Falkirk and Dunfermline.
We can never get the Highland Football Academy as County block book it whether they use it or not.
Robbo is against using Hearts youth players on loan as they probably won't be better than we have and if we did use them, it would **** off the signed players. Plus is is extremely excited about Danny McKay and Roddy MacGregor.
