Keep/Get Rid Contract Thread

I can see Hopkin going with Nesbitt and McGuffie as first choice wingers. I think completely rebuilding the attack is overstating it - we already needed another centre forward, we still have Colville and Lyon as creative midfielders with Nesbitt an option in a more advanced role through the middle as well. We could now do with adding another winger too but it doesn't mean we're having a total overhaul.

This is obviously shite news but we all knew it was a distinct possibility.

Dont think it's a given Nesbitt will stay, won't be short of offers either. 

Hope he does of course and as you say, it's a chance for McGuffie to stake a claim now 


All in with a Doyle Brunson

Cadden will be a loss but I will save wetting my knickers until the reality of the next season is upon us.

Went over to the FGR forum to give them my stunning insight into Cadden. Don’t think I’ll bother...even deeper into man and dug territory than I thought it’d be.

FGR's manager Mark Cooper is universally disliked, falls out with his players all the time, and spends each transfer window signing half a new team and then blames the players when they aren't winning. Rather Cadden than me from what I've heard, but I'm sure they pay well so I can't blame him.

Seeing Nesbitt being rumoured to be away now too, back of the Tele was posted on Twitter. 

Would be a massive blow to lose both Cadden and Nesbitt this summer. Getting increasingly nervous about our potential recruitment.

I said after Cadden leaving was announced that it didn't massively change the job Hopkin had with recruitment this summer, but Nesbitt going too would mean our first choice front three is away. We could really do without this.

We're not going to be back in training until mid-August at the earliest so I'm not expecting to hear anything about new signings for weeks yet, and I expect most clubs at our level won't really have much movement on that until August with Dunfermline and Hearts being the only exceptions so far. Not hearing anything about renewals is becoming a concern though; what's stopping the players already here signing new contracts?

Whose interest is it in exactly for 'Dunfermline thinking about a potential contract offer mebbe' to be splashed across the Tele as 'an audacious move'? I sense a ham-fisted agent at work here.

The site is supposed to be a place for the extended 'family' of Morton supporters - having an affinity with people that you don't know, because you share a love of your local football club. It's not supposed to be about point scoring and showing how 'clever' or 'funny' you are, or just being downright rude and offensive to people you don't know, because you can get away with it. Unfortunately, it seems the classic case of people who have little standing/presence in real life, use this forum as a way of making themselves feel as if they are something. It's sad, and I've said that before..

 

So, having been on Morton forums for about 15 years I guess, I've had enough... well done t*ssers, another Morton supporter driven away. You can all feel happy at how 'clever' you are

Agree. Good to see the great relationship between the club and the Tele at work.

'Out of contract player might possibly receive a potential offer from another club if they decide they want to offer one.'

Very, very different from your proclamation of 'rumoured to be away.'

“Morton could be set to lose another key man” = speculation that a player might leave our club = rumoured to be away.

Well no because the latter indicates a decided outcome and not an uncertain event e.g. 'I'm away to the pub' = this is happening both right now and is 100% certain. 'I might go to the pub' = neither of the above.

Any other time I wouldn’t be too fussed about losing Nesbitt, but at this moment in time we’re highly unlikely to be able to upgrade. He’d be a near certainty to score against us too at some point.

Rumoured to be away to the pub indicates something that hasn’t been decided yet to me.

No, it indicates that something has been decided and is happening right now but you aren't 100% sure of the source for it.

'Rumoured to be away' means there are rumours that he is already away, it's just not official yet.

The very quote you listed states 'could be' therefore not 'away' and continues to say Dunfermline are only considering the option.

What the story actually says, is that in a completely shocking turn of events, an out of contract player might receive more than just an offer to stay. 

Your sensationalising of the article with 'rumoured to be away' makes the Tele's own sensationalising of a non-story look like Pulitzer prize winning journalism.

Wonder if we are going to be making any moves to bring in new players soon... 

Obviously dunfermline have signed a few and their fans are wanking furiously because of it but in all honesty I don't think I'd be fussed if any of them came here. Maybe O'Hara at a push as he is young with potential but the rest whittaker (done), Watson (meh), mcmanus (league 1 player and a rat), thomas (flatters to deceive) I wouldn't thank you for.

Clubs outside the Premiership aren't going to be back in training until mid to late August and I doubt most will start making signings until the end of July, when furlough stops automatically covering 80% with no employer contribution and the extended contracts are up. Hearts and Dunfermline are the only clubs making new signings so far, and many others extended contracts to 31 July.

Hopkin will have targets in mind regardless, although I was concerned to hear that the board still haven't finalised the budget. Again that's fine if it's confirmed in time for most recruitment getting underway, but I hope it's not led to the club withdrawing offers already made to players at the club until it's finalised.

Maybe Dunfermline have seen doing business early as a way to appeal more to players, but in these circumstances I'm happy enough for the club to wait. You don't want to saddle yourself with wages to pay when you're months away from the start of the season and still don't know yet when you'll have revenue through the gate. Although I suppose it's possible that Dunfermline are announcing these signings now while the contracts don't formally start until a later date, eg August 1.

Hearts doing it to pray to the gallery and continue to deflect from the shit show that has been their performances for the past year, Dunfermline spending their windfall and also continuing their favoured brand of financial mismanagement.

Nobody else is doing any business so don't see any from us either for the foreseeable.

Dundee could be suspending all contracts.

End of July when decisions need made on the furloughed players would probably be the start of anything from us.

With Hearts llikely to skoosh the league it;s not really the time to be pushing the boat out. Fuck risking going bust for a chance at finishing 2nd.
