    I can't even remember him so I'm on no position to judge but doesn't sound too inspiring.

    According to Wikipedia he signed for then in 2016 so maybe a Neilson signing? Not sure what difference that makes mind

    Yup, seems to be the general consensus amongst those I have spoken to. Although if he's a left back can't see it happening...

    Transfermarkt has him down as a cb/dm/rb - hard to remember him from his 57mins sub appearances last season. Seemingly it took new employers Panionios 15mins to assess his ability.

    Vaguely remember him going down pathetically to a Jayden Stockley swing which got our previous hotshot a straight red. I’m guessing that our manager isn’t on pick up the phone anytime relations with Levein - but if there wasn’t enough evidence and further confirmation from those he does get on with that the player isn’t capable of cutting it even at this level, surely to Christ he’d understand why we’d be appalled at even warranting the donkey a trial.

    I was fearing a return for Dommy Ball. This loose cannon trumps that big time.

    Did spend the ten minutes looking at Christian Doig and seeing the fifty odd goals go in with the right, left and head, bit of pace and fair bit of skill. Even acknowledging the lower level - like the look of Louis Moult Mk II. Considering he re-entered the game late, joining the police after being dumped by Bristol Rovers - figure he’s done pretty well and comes across as a real team player, humble but hungry. If he was willing to take a ‘sideways’ step - I’d get him in and stick Cosgrove to back-up centre half, telling Krystian that sadly it’s a no.

    Seeing the photo and acknowledging the 22, I’d confidently predict he’d be as much use as two jobbies in our quest to not to make a complete embarrassment of ourselves this season whilst reeling out meek protest that new stadium is in no way affecting playing budget.

    Is there any chance we can just cancel our pre-September fixtures altogether whilst we scrape the barrels post Engerland window closure?

    Just be careful mentioning looking out with the lower leagues of the richest footballing nation in the world. Obviously the experts know how much it costs to scout. I'm sure all those players we sign have been scouted heavily. The club even cut the Glasgow operation so looking further afield isn't really what the club wants. We have all that dna money now I suppose.

    Scraping the bottom of the barrel comes to mind.
    Anyone wanting their DNA money back?

    Lol, I donít need to pish my pants as I am not a full up DNA member and season ticket holder.
    Milne still has plenty time to fritter away the rest of the DNA money during this transfer window.
    I do wonder though if this DNA money will be used towards the expenses of the Hearts reject whilst training with us? Even the happiest of happy clappers must surely be starting to doubt Milneís intentions with the raised funds.

    I stand corrected.
    It wasnít who I was thinking of.

    Nowak is basically the Dom Ball of 2018.
    Heís a defensive midfielder or centre half.
    A plodder.
    IF he got signed itíll be cover for Devlin (& in an emergency, midfield).

    No, I'm not a pant wetter.
    We've paid for Forrester, we're in a tribunal for Ferguson, we offered on Marquis.
    I'm not convinced the figures banded about are real and certainly not all is cash flow yet.

    Looking forward to the season starting though

    COME ON YOU REDS!!!!!

    Shambolic recruitment this summer. Each year the squad has been more and more decimated and patched together with loans and players who shouldn't be there. This year it has caught up with us.

    People saying their is plenty of time? There is just over 2 weeks till a huge European game, which is a Battle of Britain. Europe is something the club fought for all last season, and now we've achieved it, we are just throwing in the towel it seems?

    I'm disgusted by this summer. The club is in it's best financial situation in years, yet we spend 200k-400k (raised by fans no less) and that's it? Farcical.

    That said, the bigger an area we scout the more cost associated.
    This demonstrably has decreased over the years, but I seem to recall reading somewhere (may even have been in here) that the scouting is being increased again.
    You would think that in 2018 there are plenty ways to find players without having to send multiple scouts to multiple games in multiple countries every week. Surely there are independent scouts / organisations (not players agents with their YouTube highlights reels) that compile reports and footage of players in different countries and make them available to clubs. If there isn't I'm going on Dragons Den...

    Why do have to be so negative about absolutely everything Red John?
    I'm donating DNA money for the same reason I bought shares - to help the club! I m not interested in loyalty points and as for considering that I know better than AFC about what player to sign? We fans only have our uninformed view of trialsts and don't see them in training and don't know how they would fit into the team?
    Player X was Shyte for club Y doesn't mean they would be for us. Ask the tims about Johnny Hewitt or the Oldham fans about Adam Rooney.
