    I hate the incessant negativity amongst some of our support. But I have to agree about Burge. Hes crap

    Negativity can’t be blamed at this stage. Squad isn’t good enough.

    We'd have beaten Lincoln if they'd not loaned that Stoke keeper for the first leg.

    We need to remember SAFC is operating under a tight and sustainable budget. Supporter expectations need to be checked.

    The owners are not going to throw lots of money at this. Previous, financial decisions and disasters are still very much in play and hurting the club tremendously.

    We will lose a lot of money this year and going forward.

    We've not signed a lot of our top targets and are working away down the list. As a supporters group, we need to recognise this is a journey and try to be as competitive as we can

    I imagine he was planned for the Embleton or Gooch roles. All will depend on how fit he can get and how he performs. Squad game anyway.

    That first sentence of this last paragraph is like a dagger to my heart man :(

    "Try to be as competitive as we can" doesn't sound like a good strategy to me.

    I was feeling strangely positive and optimistic today until Wheatsheaf posted that we are making our way down our list of targets as we keep missing out and that we are going to try to be as competitive as we can.

    I'm sure he meant it to re-assure people but for me its done the complete opposite.

    Couldn’t disagree any more. We’re facing a fourth season in League One ffs. Unacceptable.

    The reality of the situation is SAFC is going to lose between 8/10 million this year.

    Burge isn’t as good as McLoughlin, you’re right, but, imo he isn’t as bad as some make out and he certainly isn’t the reason we leaked goals time after time last season.
    I would like to judge him after seeing a competent, settled defensive line.
    No-one who’s unhappy with Burge has been critical of his shot stopping ability?

    Is this because they have turned us down or are financially out of reach? Or is there a "yet" to go on the end of the first bit?

    Yep. Jon Mclaughlin, who joined Rangers to cement his way into the Scotland squad but ended the season 2nd choice keeper behind 40 year old Alan McGregor at Rangers. Not putting Mclaughlin down, as he is a better keeper than Burge, but he hadn't got a great league career behind him as he's spent most of his career at this level.

    We've been financially strict/prudent on our packages we offer players..while other clubs have offered big wages to attract the players

    I'm very grateful for you sharing the bits you can, so please don't take my reaction the wrong way.

    I was just hopeful that we were biding our time for the right targets. Not moving on from them because we can't afford them.

    We need to get out this league ffs not become the level we want to remain at. We are desperately short on players and it needs sorting
