    If we want to have any chance of winning the league we require...
    at a bare minimum—
    1st Priority: Starting RW or similar quality to Kent & Hagi.
    2nd Priority: Backup Striker to Morelos but young and with the potential to become our number 1 striker if Morelos leaves. Not a Dykes/Kamberi level player we need much better than that.
    3rd Priority: another winger/attacking midfielder. Ideally we would play a 4-2-3-1 with Hagi in the middle so if Hagi/Kent/New Right Winger got injured we would need greater quality than Brandon Barker to replace them.
    Ideally we would also get...
    4th Priorty: a Centre Midfielder.

    The fact is if we don’t sign a quality right winger of a similar quality to Kent/Hagi then we ain’t winning the league we have nowhere near enough creativity in our squad and that was proven last season.

    In my opinion all goalkeepers make saves, and goalkeepers are more defined by the saves they don't make.
    I think Liam makes less goal costing mistakes than Robbie at the moment. It doesn't matter how many saves you make if you are then culpable for a goal.

    Was one of my fav ever away days with Rangers. 
    Just a perfect day from start-to-finish.
    Weiss looked like the world's best player when he came on and set-up a hat-trick like that. Thought we had the steal of a lifetime on our hands with him going on his debut there.
    It wasn't all bad with him though, he was a useful wee player and gave us some no bad moments and good value overall for a season loan. He's hated by some of us for his love of Rangers (albiet he used to go on a bit) which is pretty fucking strange, but our fans are a bit fucked that way sometimes.

    How would you rate Robby McCrorie in comparison to Liam Kelly?
    I’ve seen it said on here many times that the reason we were happy to let Kelly go was because McCrorie was a better prospect.
    Obviously Kelly has made a bigger impact In senior football so far but McCrorie is far younger and has shown you well so far on loan.

    I find it fascinating; what is it that gives the player the boost to push into the senior game. Whilst other supposedly better players fall away into mediocrity or out the game all together.
    As we can see in all of these posts your making there are players that are absolute stand outs as a youngster but then can’t even make a career in the lower leagues (see Islam Feruz).
    I think you could break it down into the following factors...
    -The players born talent.
    -The players work ethic.
    -The players Family, Friends & Surroundings.
    -A manager taking the risk and giving the opportunity to play senior football.
    -Career Choices
    -Good coaching & mentorship.
    -Injuries & Body Development
    -Luck
     
    I would say that whilst at a young age 17-22 players career potential can change hugely during this time as a result of all of the things above. 
    There also seems to be a trend of youth players coming through and making an immediate impact but then tailing off dramatically as things progress I.e. Gregg Wylde, Glenn Middleton, Danny Wilson, Rhys McCabe, Ryan Gauld at Utd, Tony Watt at the scum etc...
    Case in point being someone like Jamie Ness he looked great in his early cameos and had all the talent & abilities needed to succeed for us, he was regarded as one of the top youth players in Scotland but a combination of Injuries at key times, bad career choices and maybe some of the other factors has meant he’s spent a career in the lower leagues of England.
    You could have said the same about John Fleck huge hype and potential and his career has so far been spent as a decent Championship midfielder. He seems to have turned it around now and worked his way up-to the EPL where he’s making a big impact but he should have been there far earlier in his career.
    Someone like Barry Ferguson or Billy Gilmour who appear as an absolute standout for the youths and then seamlessly make that step up to the Senior level seem to be few and far between (especially in Scotland).

    Only problem is; he was never “steady” he’s made a number of absolute clangers far more than Tav or Barisic. When Flanagan was bad we all knew about it he just fell to pieces.
    He had a number of games where he did appear “steady” but he was never consistent with it, he had just as many absolutely shocking games. I think it was to do with his confidence (the same issue most of our players seem to have).
    So if he can’t be relied on to be defensively solid and doesn’t provide the attacking outlet that Tav or Barisic do then whats the point of him.

    Looks like Lewis and Linton have got themselves in position early doors to be this windows bandwagon signings. 
    It happens every year and by the end of the window certain posters will be acting like the world's going to implode if we don't sign these two diddies.

    We could sign Gazza of old tomorrow and you would have folk saying he's a luxury and they would rather have Lewis Ferguson.
     
    No wonder the game is fucked up here.
