Great stuff. Lose 3 EIRE seniors (Done,Given,Oireland) and keep these ones instead.

Good news all around. Hopefully some clever loan moves will benefit everyone.

Surprised a bit at Carruthers, word was that he was unsettled and wanted away. 

His few cameo appearances coming off the bench at the tail end of McLeish's reign of terror were one of the few bright spots in that arse of a season.  Hopefully he features a bit more in the upcoming campaign.

My thoughts too.  Perhaps Lambert is happier now with how our central midfield is and will be looking to add a bit of width to the game when needed.

Didn't Carruthers get in a bit of training ground bother early last season?  Maybe Mr L told him to keep his head down, train hard and show he's got the ability, a new contract may be the reward.  Fuck, I might go and stick that on Twitter  "Lambert rewards Samir for Euro glory!".  That's a goer.

Samir must be rated. I guess he's knuckled down and got himself back in contention. I'd like to see more of him.

As I recall it was for something minor like his mobile going off during a squad meeting.

Lambert had banned mobile phones from the training ground. Not entirely trivial, getting on the new manager's tits.

Who would do something like that to hinder a young creative midfielders players career? Who would even know to call the phone at that very moment? I guess we will never know.

Teaching a young footballer discipline and the importance of listening is not going to hinder his career.
