Ignoring his goalscoring record for us his performances haven't been outstanding

Performances have been fine in the main. Thought he looked sharp in the friendlies I seen, as sharp as you can be when the games are being played a half pace, with little intensity. Goals make a striker, and he'll have gained confidence from his double last week.

If given the choice, I'd take Graham over Ryan.

He still has a year on his contract at Hibs, though, and they have a few quid so might hold onto him as cover for injuries and suspensions.

Loan deal a possibility, however.

He's a striker - he's paid to score goals not put on fancy dan performances. Why the hell would anyone "ignore the goalscoring record" when assessing a striker ????

Strikers are judged by their goal scoring record that's the harsh reality

Loan deal would do me. Would be cheaper as well, which is always a bonus.

Aye, would be fine with that. We've yet to bring anyone in on loan, so there's every chance we could see some business via that route.

Yep - waiting to see who the premiership clubs find surplus to their plans at this point.

Ally McCoist is one of the best goal scoring forwards Scotland has ever produced and i think you could count on one hand the amount of times he put in an outstanding performance. Still managed to stick away 300 odd goals for Rangers.

Strikers are judged on scoring goals and not their work rate, especially if it's outside of the box. If the lad scores goals, i couldn't care if he sat on a deck chair in the 6 yard box for 90 minutes a game.

He's impressed me in pre-season but as others have said he needs a partner up front to play off of.

Not a stupid post. No way is Reilly good enough to play a lone striker role. he needs to play off a big striker. JR prefers 4.2.3.1 be tough for Reilly to play in that system

This is my main concern with Reilly. He's going to prove a very good option in the days when we go two up top but lone forwards these days have so much more to do than just put the ball in the net.

I think he is good enough, but I agree to get the best out of him we should play 2 up top, or at least a Scotland style 4-4-1-1. All the attributes are there, he's intelligent, quick, 2 footed, better in the air than he should be for his height. For some reason, lots of people don't seem willing to give him a chance.

I think Reilly will score at least 15 league goals this season.

The link up with Sutton on Saturday for the second is a prime example of what can be achieved.

Love these "sitting" managers..................

Maybe Jack has a plan? And who ever said Reilly as lone, not me, we never played that way yet under Jack. Obviously you don't go to games to be able to see that Jack , since he got shot of Raes team,plays, high forward lines, which is why our defence gets caught out.... but also why we score lots of goals when it works...

Game tomorrow if you can make it :whistle

Andy Ryan signs for Dunfermline

undisclosed fee involved.

Some of the money from the cup game against Rangers would have pay for him.  They are welcome to him.
