Probably a bit of a stretch but Eboue Kouassi from Celtic would be ideal kind of player we need. Doubt they’d want him to drop down a level though, probably more likely to go to a Thistle or St Johnstone if he’s to stay in Scotland.

I had this thought too, he must be on huge wages though, which would prove an issue.

Kouassi may well be out of our league but we don't have to pay his full wage. Would Celtic want him to be gaining experience fighting for a title or a mid table premier team? I know which would be better for his development. Baring in mind they already rate us for bringing on players. Rogers had huge respect for Jack Ross.

Celtic midfielder Eboue Kouassi is wanted by Bundesliga side Werder Bremen and Belgian duo Genk and Standard Liege as the Scottish champions consider a loan deal for the 20-year-old.

That's that humped then. I thought he might go to a bigger club than us,  but maybe not Werder Bremen big. I see Ostersunds are after Henderson as well, most likely out of that race too (If we were ever in it).

Of the other ones doing the rounds, I'd happily take Hippolyte. As much as he's a bit of a diver, he's a good player and I'm sure Jack and James could coach the cheat out of him.  In a weird way he'd also be a partial solution to our lack of depth in centre mid. He could play on the right if required to let Magennis move into his more natural centre mid role and provide some competition for McGinn and McShane.

If we are to sign a wide midfielder from our division I'd much rather we signed Josh Mullin at Livingston. I rate him far higher than Hippolyte and he has a better end product imo.

Hearing we are about to offload another player  :)

Given the smile, I'm guessing it might be big John.

Personally, I'd much rather see the back of Duffy.

You are being unfair there Drew.  :) . I would also like to see Duffy leave - I heard there was an Indian team wanting him. And I believe we have another striker in the pipeline who is big, strong and 10 years younger with a good scoring record. Remains to be seen if we can clear enough space for him but am hopeful.

Dont understand what your gripe is with Sammy, did a ginger kid steal your sweeties or something?

Against Utd he saved a penalty and a clean sheet, Against Ton he had no chance to save their goal but made several other good stops.

We cannot afford a world class goalie nor do we need one as we are in the Scottish championship, hopefully Prem next season and Sammy is good enough for either of those.

He has played 2-3 games more than some of the keepers around him and kept as many clean sheets (6 for absence of doubt). This table is based on the percentage but I would argue he should be at least in 3rd place in the division for cleansheets.

A Keeper that comes and catches a baw, they don't exist anymore. Sammy ain't no Campbell Money but he aint Les Fridge either.

If we need a better Keeper for the Champions League qualifiers next year, I'm sure we can pick one up.

Clean sheets are irrelevant. 

How many would he have with the Brechin defence in front of him? 

Saving a penalty is irrelevant. Worse goalies have saved penalties. 

He is not the worst Saints goalie. Fridge, Ridgers and Gilmour were diabolical. 

Samson is marginally better but has too many howlers, just like at Cappielow.

In a 'FlareyBob Styley'

I can exclusivey reveal there is little evidence to suggest we may be going in for big brutish striker Botti Biabi, as his loan spell at Hamilton ends and his parent club want to see him develop at a club playing progressive football.

he certainly looks the part of ideal foil for Reilly, Morgan & Smith, a very mobile big lad.
