Assume one of which will be Djorkaeff. He also confirmed he wants to get Kyle McAllister back at the club.

No thanks and yes please.

Djorkaeff seems a shot in the dark, at best.

McAllister has shown what he can do and could, IMO, get better  this season.

I've not seen enough about Djorkaeff to make a judgement.

Most folk coming in from abroad are a stab in the dark but if he's shown up well enough after being with the squad for a week to merit a contract being offered more or less as soon as we're back in Scotland, then fair enough.

I'm happier taking a stab in the dark on Djorkaeff than someone like Longridge who has shown very little whenever playing against us, even at a level lower than we are playing at now.

Suppose it depends on their experience and at what level but not necessarily true.

I would suggest that Djorkaeff is an unknown in both these areas so is unlikely to sell many season tickets.

I mean look at most of our foreign players, really. The only two I can think of in last 15-20 years where we had any sort of previous knowledge were Mo Camara and two-Djembas. And both of them turned out just smashing. Maybe Hasselbaink as well but at least he came from another Scottish side. 

All others coming from abroad were pretty much an unknown quantity. Djorkaeff is not that different to any of them to be fair.... He could be a Tesselaar, he could be a Tonet.

Being foreign isn't the most crucial issue here, it's his lack of anything really.

Time will tell.

True. Again though, we've benefitted from guys with no real first team experience in the past and we've also suffered from it. 

I'd be more concerned if we were just offering him a deal outright though. At least we've given him a crack of the whip and clearly he's done something right in that time.

I’m guessing that the management team have watched videos of him and seen him in training.

Just because you personally don’t know anything about him doesn’t really matter!
