If Yogi does join us, I understand Darren Barr is keen to come along too.

Only about 5'11 but a reasonable centre half and given we should get decent wedge for Jones I hope we can splash the cash.

Not sure if there are any other decent players at Falkirk? Arfield and Cregg???

Who else may he swoop for?

First part seems a bit of a non story really:agree:.

IF Yogi joins us, Darren Barr would maybe like to join us, but might not join us?:confused:

FWIW, I agree that he's a decent player:agree:

Arfield's a terrific prospect, but he would probably be outwith our price range.

Normally I'd take Barr too - another good player in the making - but I think Hogg needs a bigger, nastier partner.

Potentially Dani Mallo to compete with Maka. There's no-one else I think who would really enhance the squad.

Genuinely excited for the new season now. Firmly believe Yogi is the best man for the job.

Darren Barr is probably one of the best CB in the SPL right now.

Whether it's Yogi or not, he'd be a tremendous signing for us :agree:

I'd have Arfield and Cregg in our midfield in a shot as well.

Are Mallo and Cregg out of contract? I would take them :agree:

I cant see us being able to afford Arfield or Barr.

Yes to the Mallo/Cregg question.

re Arfield/Barr, I think they will end up down south if anywhere. I know Burnley had a 650k bid turned down for Barr in January and that they wanted to be kept informed of any interest in the pair.

Ceske,

What is your thoughts on Yogi as a manager?

Darren Barr is a fantastic player i'll be delighted if he comes. Hopefully Arfield will come too.:greengrin:thumbsup:

Would Arfield command the same interest (from the OF in particular) that he did a while back? Seems playing for relegation candidates has stifled the hype he was getting anyway, to the extent that a bid from Hibs or England wouldn't necessarily lead to automatic overtures from Glasgow. Worth a punt if Hibs had the money, similar to the Naismith bid under Collins. A guaranteed profit at the very least you'd imagine.

Maybe McCann and Pressley would not be too high on our list?

Tam Scobbie is a guy not mentioned so far and a good prospect imho too.

Ceske,

What is your thoughts on Yogi as a manager?

I appreciate big time what he has managed to do at Falkirk in his 6 years. We are a provincial club with a support of around 4500-5000. He has done very well in what he has achieved and what he has helped establish, ie World class training facilities at Stirling Uni and the Acadamy.

In terms of here and now, I think both parties could do with a change. Yogi has a certain type of football style that is very pleasing to watch but doesnt alwayss get the results. He has said himself, he would rather go to Ibrox/Parkhead and lose 7-2 (which we did) than sit in play for a draw.

Hibs have better strikers than we do so he may fair better at ER.

My main gripe with Yogi is that he never seems to have a plan B. If the opposition suss out his game plan we are ****ed.

Aw Naw. That has a familiar ring to it. :boo hoo:

I don`t think that Barr is that good, though he would be an improvement on the former under 21 England captain.

Be fair, greenlex. Mixu didn't even, ever, have a Plan A. :cool2:

We couldnt afford Barr or Arfield IMO. Arfiled looks an excellent prospect.

Cregg more likely being out of contract.

If Fletcher goes, I wonder if Stokes might make an appearance? Obviously not at Falkirk now but he Hughes was the one who gave him a platform.

He did have a Plan A. He just couldn't see that it wasn't working. The tragedy was that because he thought Plan A was working he never moved on to Plan B, which by all accounts was masterly. :devil:

No, these are players who nearly got relegated for God sake. I aree on Arfield however, he has talent but bigger clubs will be interested.

Completely irrelevant if they nearly got relegated, just because of the fact that the rest of their team wasnt as a high standard of player as him why should that put us off signing him? :confused:

I'd agree, his first few seasons in the SPL he looked a real talent, he seems to have leveled off a bit in terms of progress......reminds me of Fletchers progress, or non progress.

Best way for Sunderland to get a fee is for him to score goals. He'll score more up here than he will down there so I wouldn't rule it out.

Your right but I still cant see it. I believe its been Stokes himself who has ruled out several loan deals back north rather than the club.

From memory he doesnt think the SPL is big enough for him

I think he just signed a new 2 year extension to his contract - so unlikely if that's the case

I'd truly love to see Jackie McNamara at ER next year.

He was PPOY at Falkirk this year, still has the legs to carry on for another good season and could give the squad cover in a few positions.

He's a fantastically experienced player who leads by example in terms of the way he conducts himself on and off the park, important for a side as young as ours and especially if Jones does go.

He was just finishing off his A Licence last week in Belfast and I could honestly see him playing a vital role in the development of our young players for many years to come.

He's made no secret of his desire to finish off his playing career at Easter Road and, I for one, hope that Yogi gives him the opportunity.
