Speculation Thread

Right; that makes much more sense, given the level at which we're doing our shopping.

They do both look pretty similar though.

I doubt I'll ever be invited to an identity parade as a witness.

Doesn't exactly inspire much confidence... A 22 year old striker with 30 odd senior appearances and 3 goals :lol:

Most of the appearances being substitute appearances...

Alan Shearer scored 4 goals in his first season at Southampton and he started every game...

I note that he scored against Sevco at Ibrox last season. A hero in my eyes already...

Who knows whether he is any good but I wouldn't discount a young striker based on goals scored from sub appearances and irregular starts.

Yeh, checked it out.

Shearer scored 6 league goals in his first 41 appearances for Southampton.

In his first full season as a regular he scored 4 goals in 36 starts.

So because this kid hasn't scored any goals it's ok, sign him anyway? :lol:

He's not exactly young either, he's going to be 23 in a couple of months. By the time Alan Shearer was 23 he'd already signed for Blackburn and scored 30 odd goals in a Premier League season.... Not the best of comparisons.

I also thought it was the boy from Spurs. The stories I found online suggest he was getting released as he was working his way round various English Championship clubs on trial in a bid to get a new deal.

John Sutton went from Spurs to a trial at Raith with only a brief stint at Swindon in between so it's not that unlikely it could be the guy from Spurs.

Definitely looks more like him from the photos I've seen, although I'm not entirely convinced that's how it is. Comparing the PDE photo with ones from the exit trials the Livvy guy was apparently involved in at the weekend I'm fairly certain it's not him.

i haven't suggested we sign him at all.

what I'm saying is that you shouldn't dismiss a young striker based on a lack of goals from sub appearances and irregular starts

:lol:

(i can do smileys as well...)

ok, comparisons with superstars isn't great

guys like billy mckay and john daly didn't score many goals in England at lower levels but were able to score in the top flight in scotland

we probably wont sign thus guy... All I'm saying is that his goalscoring record so far shouldn't be dismissed.

if he had a decent scoring record then he wouldn't be on trial with st. Mirren!

McKay had scored 14 goals in 76 games before ICT. He joined them when he was 22.

13 of those were for Northampton Town, where he had played 74 of his games.

Not exactly prolific.

As you say, this is the type of player that we're probably going to be linked with, who might come good or might not.

Aye.

I read those too and got a wee bit excited! :)

And why would he no' come to Paisley?

This could be good. Great training facility. Compact stadium. Passionate, forgiving fans...

I'll stop there. :unsure:

Turner was 2000 promotion captain he wasn't in the last promotion team. DVZ, Lappin and Broadfoot, Mehmet and Charlie Adam, Sutton, Chris Smith were all about 19-23 and either unproven or had failed at bigger clubs. We didn't know what sort of careers they were going to go on and have.

Pretty sure Sutton and Charlie came in on the final day of the transfer window also which is two months away. That was a stroke of genius (luck, for the haters) by Gus and will be difficult to replicate so let's just get two quality players in now! Fast striker and tall defender would be nice. I think Goodwin will be our experienced defender.

Steven Saunders on trial apparently

Decent player, we could certainly do a lot worse.

He can cover a number of positions as well, he's capped for Scotland and he's only 24.
