    Transfer and Rumour Mill Thread 2019-20

    Been concerned about the connotations of any possible deal for May since it broke that it'd be a permanent one. He still has 2yrs left on his contract up there and Aberdeen will be looking for a decent fee. Then you have to imagine his wage demands will be pretty hefty. That being said, St Johnstone have stated that they've already gone over budget for this season and are "willing to push the boat out" to get May. What that means exactly is anybody's guess. Could be a decent offer, or could simply be seen as 'pushing the boat out' in the sense that they're spending money they didn't budget for.

    Record are also saying we're favourites to land him and that it'd be a permanent deal. McPake also saying he hopes to have at least 2 in by the end of the week but even if we bring in 2/3 by then, we'll keep looking for another couple.

    Something you've heard or just thinking out loud? Think they had high hopes for him but never seems to have quite hit the heights. Had a couple of decent loan spells and would do a job in the Championship.

    Tomorrow's Courier confirming we've been in contact with Aberdeen re Stevie May. McPake saying he's interested but he's part of a list "as big as a phone book" with regards targets.

    Kind of on topic tbh, given that the Gowser discussion started with folk saying we need the position he was playing in the other night addressed as some thought he can't play there. It's basically arguments for and against Gowser playing there and therefore negating the need to bring in an attacking mid

    Just want to quantify, I wasn't for one second suggesting the fans who want rid of Gowser or don't see what others including myself see in him, don't understand football. My point was how you watch the game, what fans as individuals look for during a match. I personally like watching what players do off the ball, their movement and the wee things that are often missed or taken for granted.....like pointing those things out to my young lad, get him to appreciate all aspects and not just the goals or the sublime. Everyone is different however and sees the matches through their own eyes.....beauty is in the eye of the beholder etc etc, and everyone is entitled their opinion and shouldn't be slated for giving it (within reason lol).

    That 'something' is the stuff that goes under the radar, the hard yards and simple stuff which will never grab the headlines. I think that's why so many fans criticise him, because they can't see what he brings to the side. So many fans these days look for the sublime, the moments of magic etc, but the players who give their all, ain't flashy and do the dirty work in the engine room often go unnoticed, to the point that they become disposable in many fans' eyes. If you take the time to watch Gowser, you can appreciate what he brings to the side. I genuinely think we're a far better side with him playing, as was very apparent under McCann when he either subbed him off (threw it away) or subbed him on (made a fist of it having been pumped all game to that point). Don't expect most to agree, but that's how I see it.

    Gowser used to play further forward before joining us, even at times as part of a front three at St Mirren. He's said in the past that was his preferred position, attacking mid/supporting the forwards. He's shown great composure in front of goal in the past for us with some deft finishes, don't see him being utilised further forward being an issue tbh. Definitely need at least one more striker in though, preferably one with decent experience.

    Do have some very decent centre halves at the club now, just a case of trying to keep them all fit. Davies and Meekings have had well documented long-term injuries in the past, although we do have Forster and McGhee and the option of going 3 at the back like we did last night, which could allow Kerr or Marshall to slot in more centrally.

    Has to be at least one or two this week. Last night showed that we do have a strong starting XI but we cannot rely on this alone week in week out. A few injuries and suspensions and we'll struggle I think. 3 or 4 needed at the very least, including at least one striker.

    Makes sense. May gets to continue playing top flight football and Aberdeen don't have to face him but know their rivals do. If McInnes still rates him but feels he needs time on loan to get his form and confidence back, no brainer to make that happen against the other sides in your division.
