Got to be a good bet, he's at least got a Wiki page. :wink:

Judging by it, not played many games. One would think not hard to deal with financially considering he's a free agent. Could he be another Heaton. :rolleyes:

I quote, "The McDiarmid Park boss wanted to sign him but was forced to pull the plug at the last minute because of finances."

So the Fakes cannot afford him but we can . . . not sure that this is true... :2cool

Interesting to see how this plays out.

Anyone able to justify why we weren't in for Shankland? Jeez at zero fee he would have been just what we needed up front. Surely he would have fancied guaranteed game time in the Prem versus losing out on promotion at Utd?

Rumoured to be on a pretty high wage at Utd. Not worth the gamble imo.

We wouldn't have been paying the rumoured signing on fee and wages. 

Edited because just seen Munoz's reply.

You seem convinced Dundee United will miss out on promotion?

St Johnstone have the boy Tanser at left back who is their first choice, maybe they were only willing to pay him as a back up option. Or due to Liam Gordon getting an injury maybe the money they had aside for a left back needs to go on a centre half now.

Loads of ways we could get him in but they couldn’t

I’m sure with all your inside info you would have known that though

How do you know we weren't? 

If the figures being widely spoken of are correct, they are paying Shankland around £600k over the course of three years between wages and signing on. I dare say that would be far too rich for our blood.

I heard  it was a £250k signing on fee and £3k a week . 

Not the best use of our budget if it's four times the pay of the rest of the team .

We were in for him. As were many other clubs. United are targeting promotion by April or, at the very least, administration by June and we can't compete with that.

There's also the fact that he might have been a bit scared of the step up. This way he gets paid a fortune, and could easily get 30 goals for a high-flying United side this season.

Although I liked Shankland in his first spell with us and obviously he's had a great spell at Ayr, I'm not convinced he would be a regular scorer in the Premiership.

Without suggesting for one minute that we are 'aiming above our station' I imagine that JG has aspirations ...... striker wise .......  that take into account the fact that another ex Alloa, ex Buddies manager considered him simply not good enough .............. strike three and he is out.  Ps: I watched the game lat night and whilst he ran about a lot, much of it was aimless, I think we need better than Shankland.

Cool. Just point out which part of my post was wacky or "mace" up. I'll wait.
