Heard Saints have been linked with a Japanese player, Makunt Izichi.

He's going to play up front with a Nigerian wonderkid with Scottish ancestry, Maboza Ritchie.

Jaybee. It was a wind up... Not by me but I fell for it. 

Ricky the guy played twice for us two games I did not attend.  I dont collect football cards or team posters. Have no idea what Heaton looks like. But if someone is getting a laugh out of it then that's better than them having a tantrum with 12 days to kick off and still no new players.

On a serious note, I know it's very exploitative, but there are a couple of English clubs, namely Bury and Notts County, who are in real financial trouble. Some of their players may be free agents soon, should we not be monitoring that with a view to taking some of their better players? Bury finished second in League Two last season while County have Kane Hemmings playing for them.

Callum Booth seemingly free to leave Dundee United. He is a left back, played over 200 times, perhaps underwhelming but I think we could do worse.

At least he’s a left back. Just sign him now :lol: for the sake of young Ethan.

Can’t believe we’re so close to the start of our league campaign and no credible names being banded about (apart from Stevie May and the Dutch chap) as potential targets.
Usually at this time of year the forum would be rife with speculation/rumours.
If we hadn’t brought May onboard by now I believe it’s dead in the water. Maybe after going public regarding the Dutch fella, the club are keeping tight lipped.

Was reading an article about the 100s of young talented footballers that get released every year. Eh Gus its not that hard.

Given the roaring and greeting that would ensue if any player doesn't satisfy the requirements of the team and the high standards of the fans, then yes, it is that difficult.

Well exactly, what are Well doing that we are not?

They're not only getting great service from these guys but they're selling them on for great money eg Moult signed from Wrexham, sold for £500k, Kipre signed from Leicester u23s, sold for £1M, Marvin Johnston signed from Kidderminster, sold for £750k and a further 300K when he moved to Boro, Heneghan signed from Chester sold for £450k...that's only going back two seasons.

 

I Know Motherwell have a guy working with them that works on re habilitation and getting guys fit with chronic injuries. I think part of their strategy is picking up good players who are considered a crock and get this guy working on them. When Moult was signed he had a chronic injury (pelvic or hamstring) I’m told he couldn’t shoot from the edge of the box due to this injury until this guy started working on him.

 

I suppose sometimes you need to think outside the box rather than going with the old tried and trusted method.

 

Also this guy worked on Steven Whittaker when he moved to Hibs from Norwich.

 

P.s. don’t know if all the players mentioned were all crocks before signing on at Motherwell.

If only it was that easy DJ. Did AS not go down that route to some extent? Few shortcuts. Doesn't mean it is impossible.
