He didn't want to sign for us. 
You mean he didn't get an offer he would accept!
Word is it will cost clubs £2m to prise him from the Arabs in January. If true that is a shambolic mistake on our part. Cant see any offer coming in for McAllister in January or anytime.

Not permanently injured or he would not have game time maybe gets more injuriesthan others. And if there were other premier league teams in for Shanks who says he would have come back to us as in his own words it didnt work out for him esp 2nd time. Given we arw struggling to supply the strikers we have there is no way he would be anywhere near as prolific as is now and at a level above what he is playing at So how long before the moans and groans came out that he wasnt cutting it "again" . A clearly weaker league part time teams and the only team he has faced as in a team challenging he hit a blank. 
The lad McAllister has said he expects to carry his groin injury for as long as he plays.

For your claim it’s a mistake on our part to hold weight you need to have evidence of: 

1. We didn’t try/ want to sign him 

2. He had an interest in coming back to us over United & would have if we approached.

You have provided neither & just embarrass yourself by asking for evidence from others when you don’t follow the same standards. 

Also your digs at Mccalister are as poor as your ‘constantly injured’ claim, they’re completely unrelated points & Goodwin confirmed mccalister was ‘fully fit’ when he signed. 

St Mirren fan my arse.

Quote by Dun Utd Sporting Director BBC website
"Contrary to suggestions, the package did not make him the highest earner at Tannadice. "I can tell you, money wasn't his main driver," Ashgar said. "Lawrence had offers - no doubt - but Robbie sold him what we are doing. He wants to develop into a top player and we believe that, with the coaching staff and the data we have, we can get him to that point."

Oh dear that's not going to play well with those who insist he's on millions in the championship. Lol.... seems he just thought we were pish?

How do you know we didnt where is the proof. If  we did make a competitive offer who is to say he would have accepted it. NO one knows if we did ir didn't except the board so all just conjecture without any substance either way. Time to put this thread to bed he is not our player never has been had a garbage 2nd stint at us at a lower level. Its irrelevant comparing stats between 2 divisions  a few part time teams in there a few diddy teams inc the doon the water mob.

People really don't like having our failings pointed out. Dearly me the collective seethe just for highlighting we should have had our shirt on the pony!
The point is, you haven't provided any evidence that 1. we never, 2. even if we did, that he would have signed for us, 3. he would have scored any goals at all for us if he had signed or 4. that this isn't just another one if your digs at the board in your pathetic one-sided vendetta.

You continually ask other to provide proof of anything they say that doesnt fit your smfc bashing agenda looking back over this thread you have done this at various points and yet you just jump on morale high ground if asked to substantiate your claims and again you do the same when asked to provide proof he didnt like the offer we presented. It is clear you have a major issue with McAllister even though as pointed out OUR manager advised fully fit when signed.  Are you at some point going to come up with proof to your claims

Yes, here it is..........

You do know that there was only one walloper that wrote about him earning millions.

Proof please! As I heard from his aunties, sister's, cousins vet it was seven figures he was on just to take a shit..!


Now, how stupid do you feel now.

With Shankland now having scored three times more goals than our whole team by September!, being touted for a full Scotland debut as well as tracked by the OF and clubs down south...

How does the decision to splash out on signing McAllister stack up, given in his own words he expects to be carrying his injury/ fitness problems for as long as he plays?

Wasn't it obvious who we should have signed?

 

That post of yours boils my piss.  Well it would but you know......

 

 

My piss has been boiled, boiled it has been indeed

Another mention by the Haddie. He is obsessed with me. Is this healthy? 

No, it's not. The behaviour of the two of you is not healthy.

Far Away has already been warned, so he's out.
You can spend some time in the bin.

Thats just dragging up old news i have never said he was the highest earner at their club and i read article he said the bit in brackets not the bit at the start regards contrary. Whats your point you said he was made an offer he didint like PROOF PLEASE.  Direct quote from DUFC official site at the signing

 Sporting Director Tony Asghar said, "I identified Lawrence as a player who fits the profile we pursue. It has taken a bit of patience, but I am pleased to bring one of the top, developing goalscorers in Scottish football to Dundee United. He had lots of offers, but the vision we offered appealed to his hunger to succeed as a player. He will help us greatly in our Championship challenge and more."

You said we should have signed him  instead of McAllister given the likes of Sunderland were interested and UTD beat the likes of Hull not to mention other SPFL clubs whats to say he would have joined us. 

Dundee United have revealed they have made an offer to free agent centre-forward Lawrence Shankland, a player the Black Cats would also like to sign

Championship sides Hull City and Swansea City, both under new management this season, have also been linked with a move

You say he has scored more already than our entire team which is true at a lower lever if this is what we base it on why not bang the Dobbie drum or Rory McAllister at Peterhead. Ah wait it doesnt suit the agenda ?

Smfc were Interested in Shankland, I guess the cash all went on another catastrophic employee relationship fail when Oran got paid off, and Shanks probably thought we looked clueless... again?
Now can you see why it was so hard, and took so long to recruit the bare bones of a squad? Players could see the turmoil we were in and lacking credible leadership. That's what attracted Shanks to the arabs Neilson and his team could help him improve. We didn't have that appeal, and still [email protected]
