  1. There's no disagreement there.
  2. You do realise that it's not a case of Hull City sending us the cash via PayPal family & friends, right? We'll likely get that money at some point over the next few months, or even in installments.
  3. If he doesn't sign a contract extension with us I can't see this ending well. He's currently out of contract at the end of May 2021, and if he comes back at the arse-end of this season he'll likely not do much until the new season, at which point he can sign a pre-contract with Celtic in January I assume?

    If it's a deal until the end of the season it shouldn't be too much of a risk to us. If he comes in and does well he can win an extension with us or a deal elsewhere, while we get a much-needed striker for the remainder of the season.

    The James Scott deal isn't ideal for us at this stage of the season, but that's football in this day and age. I'm hearing that he's set to "significantly increase" his weekly wages down there, as you can imagine, so it's a no-brainer for the lad. I've said it a number of times, it's easy for us fans to bleat on about development and giving it a few more years, but when you're the one who's handed a chance to make a ton of dough and to put yourself in the picture at a club down south it's not something you just pass up. You strike while the iron is hot in such a short career. He doesn't know if such an opportunity comes along again, and although folk will say "well, if he's good enough it will," what if he's not? He's secured a three and a half year deal on very good money, and that's what really matters in all honesty. Long after the fans have stopped giving a fuck about him it's his family and his bank balance that'll matter.

    I can't really recall any players who've managed to hit those kinds of numbers in the lower leagues yet couldn't make it at the top of our game. I also wouldn't read much into the 20 or so games he played for Aberdeen, he was a young lad then who seems to have come into his game into his early 20's.

    So no one else coming in during this window. Let's hope we keep hold of our better players as well.
  8. A win or a draw from this is a good result for us, so I'll take either.

    Because there's no fun in that, is there?
  10. It's a modern interpretation. Back in the 70's it was all about selling newspapers, today it's about clicks on websites and driving traffic to those websites, so it's essentially the same thing.

    If a Championship club were willing to pick up his wages then I'd be all over that idea. He's contracted to us until May next year, so even if he did okay-ish in the Championship between now and January I'd be happy enough to let him go there permanently in the summer for next to nothing just to get him off our wage bill.
  12. He's playing today it seems.
  13. Which is ironic, as he initially left West Ham for first team football. I guess at the age he is now he's happy to play backup and earn decent dough.
  14. I think that it's more to do with SEO and website hits to be honest. Articles with "Celtic" or "Rangers" in the title will appear in more internet searches than others as most of the Scottish football internet traffic centres around the both of those clubs. It's shit of course, but media outlets are all about the clicks, and journos need their articles to be getting "views" otherwise they could end up getting grief from those in charge.

    If he's found guilty we'll likely see a few interviews where he'll talk about how he regrets his actions, how he doesn't condone such behaviour, how he knows he was wrong and apologises and so forth, with maybe some work with relevant charities chucked in as well. He's not getting sacked because of it.
