3 million for a 25 year old who’s almost only played lower league football in bloody Scotland? He hasn’t even scored a goal in the micky mouse Top league in Scotland. Bloody hell that sounds incredibly overpriced. Granted I haven’t seen him play but realistically there is no way a Scottish second tier Player should ever cost that much. Lee Miller was from their top division for crying out loud and Boyd was a top goal scorer🤣

What standard is the Scottish championship? In my head it’s around league two/conference level but I know very little about Scottish football beyond the stereotypes.

Looking at the standard there, I believe lewis WIng could score 30 in a full season ..

Jamie Vardy played non-league football once upon a time.

He has played 20 SPL games and zero goals ..

17 of those games were for Aberdeen 5-6 years ago.  He's only played 1 so far this season according to Wiki.

Ah yes the famous quote that indicates you should always take a chance on an overpriced lower league footballer. We might hit the 1/10000 jackpot😆

I'm not writing him off, just wondering as it's a gap in my knowledge. On my current understanding of the league, £3 million (if that is the figure, if there's even any truth in us being in talks with him) does seem pretty steep and a significant risk. But yes, as you indicate, real gems can be found in lower leagues and if we do sign him I of course hope he'll be one🙂

Well if this and the Sanogo link is genuine we will have lots of options up top. If Warnock fancies Paddy as a CB then we may be covered there. We seem to be after a couple of Centre mids also, so that would be his spine sorted.

Scottish league has improved massively since them days. Plus he plays in the top league now, Dundee United were promoted last season. Aye it's a bit of a risk but I have no doubt he'd score goals. I agree that we definitely shouldn't be splashing out 3 million on him though. More like 1.5 - 2m.

Would you complain if we had signed Ronnie Schwartz when he had a similar record for Silkeborg in the 2nd division? 🤔

Also if Scotland is a mickey mouse league, that doesn't make the Superliga much better.

It's a real shame he hasn't come out of the Danish leagues, right BD?

I think a lot depends on the player...McCoist scored for fun at Rangers but looked woeful at Sunderland...Bernie adapted very quickly...the less said about Strachan's gang the better...the gap is widening between the two leagues and if I was a scottish player starting out, I would try to find a club in England if I really wanted to make the grade

    • How anyone can watch those ŕeplays and claim its a definate penalty is beyond everybody else. It was not a foul.
    • What I will say is I wish we played like we did in the 2nd half all the time because we'd be a far better team. Ball on the floor and use the technical players we have to create spaces and opportunities. Not long ball after long ball to 6ft and under forwards up against giant centre halves!  For me the play offs is a tall order now unless we go on a great run, which with our inconsistency so far this season looks unlikely. However, next season if we can retain the likes of Bolasie, Kebano, NML and add a quality goalkeeper and striker I think we'll have a great chance. 
    • Well... What a ****heap of a day... I don't get to follow much in Lockdown as I spend 7.5 hours online tutoring on saturdays - but having watched back? Jesus Christ. Our play-off hopes are diminishing. If we don't make it, I'll be rooting for Barnsley. The turnaround under Ismaël is nothing short of incredible. They're also the only other viable northern club in contention...
    • Surprised by Quest as last week they were talking about how abuse of refs isn't right. But they has to be something done want some sort of VAR  in the championship as is very much a big spotlight on it. If a ref makes a blunder it can hinder their career like the Blackburn ref he hasn't had a game since.  I don't want VAR to rule of finger nail offsides but if they could see these game defining incidents would be alot less controversy and loss in reputation for the refs. As that ref must be feeling very anxious his decisions been shared all across social media right around the world. If was VAR the spotlight wouldn't be on him he wouldn't be receiving the abuse. Its needed to protect the refs really otherwise spirals out control.  In league 1 or 2 isn't the same like spotlight on it doesn't matter as much.
