Speculation Thread

Rooney is a much better player that many people realise - For them he is not an option, but a leader from the front and if fit, given the No. 9 shirt - For Aberdeen he has played 135 games and scored 63 goals in 4 seasons - in the top league... and who knows how many assists too... The main reason he was fairly quiet at the weekend was that Baird and Davis did not give him much space (most of the time) those 2 are much better than many people realise too...

Jack Ross would kill for someone like Rooney in our team.... (Hopefully not literally though)

Outside the Tic are there any or many better strikers than Rooney in the Premiership? (Check the stats)

Agreed, though, you say he was quiet... I'd turn that on its head and say he kept our centre halves busy while their creative players ran riot (and we handed them goals on plates...) 

Even a poor man's Rooney would be great.

I have not suggested that we sign him.  The club have dome a good job in recruitment and sales since JR and his Management team came in. Recent movements in the present window have certainly made sense to me. The remaining piece of the jigsaw for me would be the big and bustling striker who would eventually replace the apparently out of favour John Sutton. Who that might be......I have to be honest and say that I don't know.

Yes I thought he did well when he came on in the Everton game ....could we afford him?

This completely wild speculation with no basis in fact but Kris Commons is a free agent and he was willing to play in the championship with hibs though I assume his wage demands maybe ludicrous 

At the moment , his wage is £0 . Perhaps his “demands” might be a lot less than you think .

Has he not retired from playing?

I think most Hearts fans will delighted to get some cash for Isma, he's not particularly popular with them.

He was very hit and miss with us as well, I think selective memory has allowed that fact to be forgotten.  We won the cup but a lot of games Isma - and quite a lot of that team - just were not interested.  On paper should never have been anywhere near the relegation spots!

Yes, 300k seemingly.  Same as Morgan.

I see Falkirk and Hamilton also bringing in decent fees.  Amazing how we continue to get shafted in the transfer market!

I wondered who would be the first to bring this up.:lol:

I'm sure if Liverpool had been interested in Morgan we'd have got more than £300K. Sadly they weren't.

Read £200K Falkirk got so they must have been shafted too.  Less than we got for McAllister.   Sevco bought the Hamilton player following from wasting millions in the transfer market in the last window.  On that basis our downfall is that Sevco haven't signed any of our players.

The boy Falkirk have sold is pish, that's the difference!

Hamilton have just got more for one player than we got for Morgan, Mallan and McGinn combined.

And Hearts are going to pocket 300k for Isma after picking him up for hee-haw.

Based on P&B presumably! :lol:

Morgan & Mallan were frequently slated on here during AR's tenure, like I said elsewhere the fee Falkirk got was standard for a "prospect" in our division and far lass than the £750k pricetag from last January that infuriated some of our more excitable posters - maybe you were one of them.

Hamilton look to be doing well this window, but Hearts are a Top 6 club and Isma has scored 15 goals in 35 games for them - apples and oranges.

We're doing better than most clubs of our stature.

The fee for the Falkirk lad is reported to be about £200000.  30% less than we got for Morgan & also less than we got for Mallan.

The Hamilton guy had almost 100 appearances for Hamilton in Scotlands top division and was under contract till 2020

Don't, you'll spoil his annual rant.

Nothing to see here.

Hearts paid a six figure fee - about £150k for Isma.

Edit: Never mind - see it's been covered!
