Re: Official SPL thread

The Old firm just like most of the clubs have lost there best players.

I'll do a bit on the transfers going on the Spl.

I'm the only Spl fan?

I'm sure there are Celtic and Rangers fan on here. What does everyone make of there club chances this season.

Aberdeen have 6 players on trial just now : Yoaan Folly ,Conor Okus , Grant Basey , Jeff Smith , Robbie Williams and Adan Ahmed.

Hopefully we get a few of them i just want players to add to Rory Mcardle and Josh Manginess

Re: Official SPL thread

Mark McGhee better get off to a flyer this season or he could well be the first managerial casualty in the SPL. Losing Mulgrew will hurt.

He's a good player but he's never a LB. He can't defend to save his life. If we use him I hope it's as an LM. He has the potential to be a very good LM. But never a LB.

If he is our starting LB for this season then that side of the pitch will cause us problems all season long.

In other news,

Nice to see Billy Reid, manager of Hamilton, decline to speak to Swansea about taking over down there.

I suppose though he should be chastised for not showing any ambition... :rolleyes:

Mulgrew finished here at Cb where he is far better, i thought he would struggle but he was one of our better players surprisingly

We have already lost to Frasebrough 3-1.

Lee Hendrie is our latest target he would add some steel to a poor midfield.

Don't think we are going to have a good season tbh 9/10 or lower i think.

Re: Official SPL thread

CB is even worse. The lad isn't a defender.

As long as we try to utilise him in midfield then I wont mind. Unless Johan can work his magic on him and teach him how to tackle and drum into him positional sense and off the ball movement all within about 10 days.

Nah... didn't think so either.. :o

Re: Official SPL thread

Latest transfers news. Aberdeen have signed Yoaan Folley on a free transfer after leaving Plymouth pretty happy with that as he is a midfield which we need. Also got Scott Veron has joined as a striker, don't no much about him but he is supposed to be a good player.

Celtic have signed Garry Hooper and are closing on Birim Kayal for 1.6m

Re: Official SPL thread

I actually feel pretty optimistic this season for Hearts. Usually doom and gloom surrounds my thoughts around this stage of the season. Normally no new signings of any quality and we usually lose a player or two. However with the signing of a much needed striker in Kyle and a reasonably good defender in Darren Barr I am pretty happy.

I am slightly dissapointed in Hartley moving to Aberdeen but then again, if we are able to convince Kilmarnock to accept our £350,000 offer for Bryson then we would have a more long term player who would potentially develop into a £1.5m-£2m player and a full international with Scotland I feel. I would suggest that Craig Thomson is deployed on the right of midfield rather than right back, he impresses me going forward far more than he does at defending. Jason Thompson can play at right back then Zaliukas and Barr in at centre half.

All in all.... reasonably happy but will be delighted if we can bring in perhaps a central midfielder and another centre half or right back.

Re: Official SPL thread

... and by feigning injury to try and get fellow professionals red carded. :rolleyes:

Yep. They've started as they mean to go on. Beware the MIB's...

Nice job on the thread btw.

I know it's disgusting. Lafferty i hate so much.

Thanks for the nice words but it's difficult as most of the time it is just me posting it would be nice if other would post.

Hamilton looking there are going to be favourites for realgation.

Re: Official SPL thread

i can't stand feighning injury, i think a manager should make an example and publicly condemm a player for doing it, the players should be warned not to do it.

as far as rangers and celtic in the premier league, it would be low-mid table for the first season but after that we would climb every season. we're talking about 2 of the biggest clubs in britian, we don't need russian billionaires or european success for people to start supporting us.

rangers and celtic fans are born rangers and celtic fans.
