Stephen McGinn

Interesting that he's there in full Hibs wear though.
And there's probably people who aren't allowed to be there and he is.

Right midfielder though eh? More of a workhorse than a winger. No sure it would work for what we're doing. And, with all respect to him and his famous last name, he's not an obvious improvement over anyone.

No sure,it’s an iffy one with only club employees etc being allowed inside stadiums.
He will be getting tested with rest of squad if he’s training with them so probs came along for the ride and to watch a live game of football. Although he may have impressed whilst training enough to earn a contract

I suggested Stephen McGinn a while ago.
Not a signing that would excite many and i'm not saying it will happen, but I do think if he did sign he would give us good experience and leadership in the middle of the park.
He knows this league well, and he was Jack Ross's captain at St Mirren when they won promotion back to the top league.

Certainly bossed his younger brother about in fixtures against St.Mirren. Granted that was a couple of years ago now.

If he offers something different to the squad (we could be a bit light on the heavy lifting duties should Newell or Gogic pick up injuries or suspensions) then I’m all for it. A bit of midfield experience for back up (especially with 9 subs) at what would likely be at a good value is a consideration.

Am I being pulled in by the fact that both his brothers have been proper committed grafters and wanting it to happen to complete the set for the wrong reasons? - probably.

No knowledge here - Jack and the teams call on that one.

Well said KP, we certainly need more players in that position because if we do get a few injuries it will weaken us. SM can mix things up for us as he isn’t scared to put in a tackle or two something that is missing from some of our players in that position.

As you say it will JR’s call but he would see what SM could bring to us each day in training.

His brother has proved to be a good signing.
Steady, does the simple things well, and no glaring blunders.
We dont need a team of stars. We have a couple of players who can do something out of the ordinary.
If Stephen McGinn has the same attitude as his brothers, then he'll do.
And if JR thinks he can do a job, then we have to trust his judgement......and that has been fine so far.

It's weird, for a player that has spent so much of his career in the same leagues as us, I honestly can't recall much about him other the fact he is the other McGinn brother. I always assumed it was because he was nothing special, but is it because he does the fabled "unseen work"?

After the start we've had, I'm happy for JR sign whoever he likes to be honest.

Part of the backroom staff as a favour for use of the facilities apparently. Feeding information through a mic from a higher vantage point in the stadium for JR and Co like Roger was doing last season.
