have you been on the sauce this early LPM?

No no... just suffering from premature predictive text. How it changed "that" to "fantastic" though is a mystery

It didn't. May I suggest it was "can't"? My prediction.

Deal agreed with hearts. ☹️

Mihai Popescu (Dinamo) has an offer from Hearts in Scotland. He played for St. Mirren two seasons ago, on loan from Dinamo. Popescu agreed terms with Hearts and now awaits a deal between the clubs. Popescu is not part of the 1st team plans at Dinamo following Contra's appointment

At his age, that's probably his level...    :whistle

Me too. I’d have taken him back in a heartbeat over the summer.

Shaughnessy, McCarthy and Popescu would have made a very decent back three.

Oh well not to be, so we move on ...

We need another CB and someone of his quality would a great addition to the squad.

Agree with this, id be pretty annoyed if we finish this transfer window without bringing in cover for defence, popescu would be ideal but apparently last season his demands where a bit too high and that’s maybe why we’ve not pursued again this year.

Still feel the Club have made a huge mistake not re-signing Popescu. Seems we have given very positive feed back to Hearts on his ability and character. Sore one for me.

Agreed. It is becoming clear that Goodwin only wants players he has brought in. I'm sure we could have got Popescu if we had wanted him. That would be fine as baggage from the past isn't always productive but Jim has so far not convinced me he has an eye for a good player. Hope I'm wrong because if not we have big problems

The club were ready to sign Popescu, as he arrived for pre-season training, only for his club to shift the goalposts and demand a six figure fee (£350K) for his services.

It's no coincidence that Hearts have signed Popescu on the back of banking £1m plus from Bologna for Hickey.

I’d say Goodwin has shown an eye for a player, decent enough success rate at this level so far.

The big question for him now is can he get them working as a team.

Apparently it wasn't his club who demanded a fee. He would have only been joining us on loan again. It was his agent who demanded more money/wages (I would imagine under the instruction of Popescu). 

If Hearts are paying him that extra dosh then they are welcome to him in my opinion.
