Who would you like to see at ICT next season?

Recommended Posts

His overseas experience didn't amount to much.  He got fairly little match time whilst he was there, and even that was mostly as sub.  Although I quite liked Nick, I can't see him improving our sqaud greatly.

maybe time to get himself into uni and finance it with part-time footie (he's a very inteligent laddie)

We need to sign someone who's a natural leader, well respected by his peers and would run through a brick wall for the club....anyone know a player who might fit the bill?

It feels a bit like one of those job adverts where they finish by saying "previous candidates need not apply".

P&J are saying Bell is away as we were unable to offer him much more than he was on already.

A few good games then he lost his hunger.

He didn't merit a pay rise. 

Don't let the door hit you on the way out.

I think that's really quite harsh on Bell. I saw nothing to suggest that he had "lost his hunger" though he was definitely not as effective later in the season as he was at the start he certainly didn't stop trying.

That said, I do agree that he didn't merit a (significant) pay rise. Obviously I've no idea what kind of numbers we are talking about here but if his agent was being unrealistic with what his client was after I support the club saying that we won't deal. However I wouldn't have minded him being given a small increase.

Anyway, the article is here if anyone wants to check it out online. Robbo also says that his signings are mostly done although we are looking at maybe another couple of players.

I would like to see John Robertson still here next season, if the reports linking him with livi are true, I hope he turns it down and does it early so as to install confidence in his players

The "reports" have been lifted off a Livi fan forum and repeated with no quotes or any other comments. Make of that what you will.

If that's the origin of the story then quality factual reporting from the sun and daily record ad per usual.

Harsh - Being truthful isn't harsh. 

Worth a Pay Rise - Not on your nelly. Oakley stuck with it and earned his starting position. Bell did not.

How and when exactly would you say that Bell "lost his hunger" then?

I'm not sure Bell lost anything, but he worked hard with unfortunately not enough end product. He may be young but as often the case at the club this is a guy brought in and given more game time than our own youngsters without really showing he is a whole lot better. If suggestions are correct and he is looking for a pay increase, it could be argued he lost his place in the team and wasn't integral in the team heading upwards - if anything after the failure of promotion or at least play-off places the players should really be facing reality and accept they failed to deliver what was required.

If he feels he is worth more money and wants to move on then he's not irreplaceable and hopefully the club can look within to give a younger players a chance.

Apart from small glimpses of talent mainly at the beginning of the season i wouldn't say the lad did absolutely anything to merit a wage increase

Can't say I know that much about White but he has a decent record in this division previously with Livingston.

Here is a shaky YouTube video of some of his goals from Livingston.

Seems a good signing on paper. Wouldn't mind us trying to get in another midfielder.

Seems like a good solid signing...as much as I rate Austin & Oakley as a partnership, we can't rely solely on them...or Daniel Mackay either (who I rate highly as well).

We need cover & competition for positions.

Well that's bell replaced hope he can do what he's done at barrow and Wrexham and he can score penalties.

Hopefully we play him up front with Oakley and Austin either side and play a dogs-of-war, long ball hatchet man style.

My last comment on Bell as he is history. Lattetly when on the pitch he was more likely to be bundled off the ball and fall over. He was out of sorts and as far as I am concerned not 'up for it' and was bottom of the list regarding our strikers. He's history. Time to move on.

Welcome Jordan White.

Fair enough. I think you're being pretty unfair to him as he is a slight player anyway so he was hardly going to be much good at holding the ball up anyway but we're not going to agree!

Interested to see what Jordan White can do. His record at this level is encouraging.

Possible line up?

We'll be seeing Danny Devine at TCS in a Dunfemline strip next season then.
