    Every striker on earth misses more chances than they score, the elite strikers best average is just above 1 in 3 chances. He offers something different to a goal poacher type.

    Keep in mind this only includes league appearances, there’s footage of him playing in and scoring for Roma in the Coppa Italia and (obviously they wouldn’t include this) the International Champions Cup against Roma. Felt last season we lacked this type of effective target option, could be really exciting.

    You can’t recall international loan deals these days, loan deals usually involve a small fee which guarantees the club the player to the end of the season unless the buying club wishes to return them early and the only option would be January so it’s not outwith the registration window.

    Candeias - "I am so tired"

    I’m not disagreeing with the way the sessions are being run, just found it funny that he said he hadn’t seen a ball yet when I’d seen them with a ball.

    Candeias - "I am so tired"

    He says they’ve not seen a ball yet but there’s been dozens of Instagram videos showing them doing finishing drills! 😂😂😂

    Europa league 1st qualifier draw

    Arrogant nonsense, Osijek are a good side and will fancy beating us, they pumped PSV last season.

    Europa league 1st qualifier draw

    Really hard draw, they knocked out PSV last year by beating them in both legs and only lost the play-off round (after getting through 3 rounds) I’m away goals to Austria Vienna.

    Europa league 1st qualifier draw

    It’s random who’s drawn home or away first, seeding only makes a difference for the order in the knockout stage after Christmas.

    Europa league 1st qualifier draw

    That’s a tougher list for us unfortunately, Siroki Brijeg are hard to beat and gave Aberdeen a difficult tie last year. Dunajská Streda could be dangerous because the Slovak league isn’t a bad division and occasionally provides an Artmedia Bratislava or Zillina type side getting to groups. Shkupi and Stumbras are both newcomers and have never played in Europe before but Macedonia and Lithuania are awkward places to play and always leave stodgy away legs (especially when Lithuania is half way through their season). Progres looks the best option but I was personally hoping for a side from San Marino or Gibraltar like Hibs can play to give us a couple of glorified friendly matches to get us up to speed.

    Jordan jones

    I’m not averse to the Scottish market but not on this occasion, he’s a hugely overvalued player who yes has pace and can beat a player...but his end product including goals and assists are probably the worst pound for pound in the league given the number of opportunities he gets from good areas, no thanks.

    Scouting Setup Mark Allen interview

    He was but we never have the same level of cash in January that we do in summer, the summer window is his real test. We’ll see how we get on.

    Scouting Setup Mark Allen interview

    Last season the recruitment team wasn’t in place over the summer, the coaching staff basically had free reign to sign whomever they wanted.

    Saido Berahino

    Look if there’s something in this then it’s all about risk and reward. No player of his age and with his talent would come to us on our budget unless there was an underlying issue with them. If he realises his opportunity up here and appreciates getting to play every week he could be a game changing player and score the 30-35 goals that would make us genuine contenders to win the league, conversely he could suffer from lack of form and fitness and we send him back down at the end of the season (this is where the bonus of the loan deal comes in). The real question for the club not just on this signing but our whole policy is do we make “safe” signings (like Jamie Murphy for example) who will improve the squad but doubtless won’t allow us to compete with celtic, or do we take gambles on signings like Berahino who have the quality that in the right situation we might have a chance of actually challenging for the league. Id take the risk on it personally.

    Suggestions.

    Apparently he lived in Edinburgh for a few years as a teenager and played for Hutchison Vale’s youth system. Might be worth asking the question on him.

    Jason Holt to Plymouth

    I have yeah, he smashed the ball into the back of the net from 25 yards against us at tynecastle to kill our championship title challenge. Decent energetic midfielder but ultimately we need better.
