John Sim's statement seems rather belated, from a PR perspective, but , I, for one, am now reasonably satisfied , given the circumstances narrated. A number of important points made ,not least emphasising that Dylan wanted to go (understandably ),the essential retention until after the Pars game at the start of next year and also the following paragraph :
''Dan and Regan moved on as they were entitled to do without any transfer fee coming to the club. Dylan, had he not extended his contract, could have walked away June 2022 as a free agent and most likely to his significant benefit. However, he saw how we have acted in the past and trusted that we would not block him if a good opportunity presented itself''.
Dylan played well yesterday (as expected from him, to be fair ). He will continue to be a key player whilst he is with us, from Ayr on.

Think that's just a bit pragmatism setting in. When you look at at all the clubs in the championship apart from Killie at the top and Arbroath at the bottom there won't be a great deal in difference as far as budget goes with the rest. And yet still at the end of the season at least of one of us is getting relegated.

Be great if the funds could be reinvested into the playing squad but if the club can't afford it and the money is required to meet the running costs of the club then that's the way it has to be.


Well we,re being told we didnt need to sell so a large proportion on the fee should be reinvested into the playng squad but suspect it wont

However, it's interesting to note Sim's comment about the club aiming to stay in the championship. That's a bit different to what we were hearing previously re promotion.


Ambition eh ?

Sadly we'll forever be in this merry go round of X player doing well, bigger team comes calling, X player wants to leave and we'll let them go. At least the statement reads that we didn't just accept Hibs initial offer and that we negotiated a fee and loan back to us so fair do's. It's frustrating none the less as the chances of us building a squad with some continuity to make a push for promotion is very slim as players will get picked up by bigger clubs then it becomes a rebuilding job where you just have to hope the stars align and they do the business. Sadly I can see us going down the route of Ayr - promoted, two consecutive playoff finishes then mediocrity thereafter. In fact even getting into the playoffs this season could be a tall ask but long way to go.

Like everyone else, I'm disappointed that we are going to lose a young talent like Dylan Tait before he has begun to fully realise his potential.

But I think we all have to have some perspective here. Rovers has been a selling club for all our lives (even for a life as long as Embow's!!). We can all relate multiple instances where a player was given away or released cheaply to another rival club. And that's always going to be the threat.

But this time, we haven't rolled over. This time, it doesn't mean the club lacks ambition, it's just that we have to be practical, and if transfers like this help us to live within our means, then we have to accept that. Pragmatic, as GP says. And this time, it would appear on the surface at least that we have done the right thing by the player, and by our club.

Giving this episode a balanced perspective, I'd say, yes, we would be better placed to earn a play-off spot at the top with Dylan rather than without him. But does losing him in January mean we are consigned to mid-table mediocrity or, even worse, relegation fodder? Of course not!

As I and others said at the start of the season, it can be well argued that this season's squad is stronger in the round, compared to last season. And in midfield, we do have options. And then, on top of that, as John McGlynn explained, we now have 4 months to find Dylan's replacement.

If we get real and understand that we are a selling club, just like every other club in the land, then we can see that, this time, as with Ziggy, it's a good deal for all concerned

I now feel a bit happier about the Tait transfer. I don't think that agents or Hibs should be approaching our players in this way. If the transfer fee was acceptable ie more than around 100-115K then move on.
The club does need to remember that we raised about 170K last season & are contributing 000's every month. If they don't want to consider our involvement,
then just advise us not to bother.

Could it be possible that we get him on loan for the rest of this season now that the Hibees have punted Jack Ross?🤔

Not sure that will happen as new management will want to see everyone. Although that said, he trains with hibs at the beginning of each week.

Well that's Tait away now and I wish him well. Would be good to see a player developed here go on to have a top class career and with a sell on clause if he does exceptionally well then we should also be quids in.
However in the final analysis I actually think the deal we made is about as good as it we were ever going to get. Don't get me wrong, Tait has done fine for us and has never let us down but at no time either before or after he signed for Hibs was I ever blown away by a Tait performance and thought to myself 'this lad will go places'. As it is we got some cash in for him which we have invested in signing Stanton for a couple of years who I actually think is going to be more beneficial to us than Tait would have been, at least in the short term.
All the best Dylan and thanks for your efforts.

Totally agree. I think Dylan Tait is a very lucky boy to be getting a move to Hibs as i honestly don't think he's good enough for that level, although time will tell. He looks similar to Ross Matthews, a good, solid Championship player.

playing and training with better players will hopefully make Tait an even better player. For me he has the potential to be a regular at Hibs.

All the best to the lad, i've said since he first started playing that I felt that he'll be a good midfielder. I think he'll go on to be a better prospect and enjoy a better career than Bowie for example, he's a very composed and capable midfielder. I do feel that since the Hibs transfer he's been focused on the future rather than the now.

Good luck Dylan.

Noticed that. Would not be surprised if he ends up back with us until the end of the season.

Wasn't expecting him to be near the bench or playing tonight. Not a Maloney signing so expect he'll likely have to wait a wee while even for a chance to "ride the pine" as Tx so eloquently phrases it.😊
I would be very surprised if you saw Dylan back on loan again.
