Who actually believes shite like this? 

Carroll, Defoe, Ings, Lucas... we are NEVER going to afford players like that unless they are willing to take a monumental drop in wages.

Wouldn't even want any of players mentioned if they dropped to 20k pw. 

There has to be better players across Europe that we could sign for less, and would rise in value. 

Need to get away from signing players on their way out of the game, and going for players who are trying to reach the top. 

A lot of our support moan about players using us as a stepping stone to the EPL, or Champions League football, but that is the reality of where Scottish Football is at.

Carroll would do well up front for us with Seb Rosenthal at #10, Prodan behind him and Andy Webster at the heart of our defense.

You wouldn’t want, Ings, Lucas or Carroll? Are you mental?

The money they would cost, with none coming in when they move on, plus their age/ risk they might not adapt to the league, then no. 

I want players who are on their way up, rather than on the way down. 

Ings I would take, since he is only 25, but he hasn't played consistently for the last couple of years, and I doubt he would take a drop in his wage that would be enough for me not to consider him a risk. 

Lucas was quality last season for Lazio, but we would have to spend a shit load to get him. 

Carroll would I imagine would be good in this league, but is injury prone, and would be a risk because of that. 

I would want them if we could afford to spend the money we would have to on their wages. 

Edit: I consider 20k too much to pay a guy that might only manage 15 games a season.

I don’t care where they go after they’re here if they come and help us to a title then that’s all that matters right now.

Fair dos

But if they come, we spunk a load on them and they fail to win anything, that leaves us in the exact position we were in last summer, and this one.

If Andy Carroll could stay fit he would be playing for England. He is that good on his day. But the reason he has played for so many clubs is because he can't stay fit.

What we need is the new Carroll or Ferguson but I get your point. If fit he would wreak havoc in Scotland.

Assuming we could even afford this.

You just know with our luck the fitness issues would get worse.

In the last 2 seasons Carroll has only managed 40 appearances.

You wouldn't want Lucas Leiva for 20k a week because we could get better at that price?

Are you on drugs?

first title is huge .

firstly the euphoria and gifruy.

then a crack at champions league .

even if we don't qualify stops those cunts getting a shot of it and then the slippery slope starts for them

Ings has been unlucky and young enough to become a star but Carroll would last 5 minutes up here and be injured for months .
