josh watt on loan to airdrie.

 

i've seen him a few times and he looks a good prospect, decent pace and technically good with both feet. i thought he would have pushed on a bit this season but it doesn't seem to have been happening for him. hopefully the loan works out well for him.

Someone tell McCall there's still time.

 

From the BBC

 

FOOTBALL

Former Scotland international James McFadden is poised to sign a short-term contract with Sunderland. "With a little bit of luck, he is going to sign this afternoon, certainly by the latest, tomorrow," says Sunderland manager Martin O'Neill.

The 29-year-old, who has been training with the Black Cats for some time after a six-month spell at Everton following his release by Birmingham, is expected to put pen to paper on a three-month deal within the next 24 hours.

3 month deal's a bit shite for him considering his family are settled up here.

 

Maybe but Sunderland are a Premier League club who are not going spend a wage on a player who may or may not last the season. This deal allows a. Faddy to show he can still do it in the Premier League and b. Allow Sunderland to see if he can.

 

If it all works out then, maybe just maybe we will still see one of our products make the SFA Hall of Fame for Scotland Caps Obtained.....

Having a look at the lower leagues and noticed that Watt scored for Airdrie and that Lawleff is back on the team sheet at Thistle

Lawless has been a star man for Thistle scoring for fun, Ross Forbes just started playing for them too and got a goal last week ( noticed Slane not in the squad this week)

 

Watt was meant to have played well for Airdrie , 1 assist & 1 goal , Nicky Devlin only came on the last 5min for Dumbarton

 

Page on losing side with Accies

 

Mind the Greek Grehan? Hat trick for Alloa

 

We've actually got former well lads dotted about all over the Scottish leagues, our youth policy has been great for Scottish league football.........

Ross Forbes was crap against Falkirk and was rightly substituted. In a poor game Lawless and Craig were not much better, Craig missing an open goal when he fresh air kicked his shot.

Apologies if already mentioned elsewhere but wanted to let anyone interested know how Keiran McGachie is getting on at Annan Athletic.

He's not had a great deal of game time so far this season (mostly sub appearances), but it was good to see him start the last couple of games and score a nice goal for Annan on Saturday - after receiving the ball into him, he twisted his markers nuts and slotted the ball past the keeper.Hopefully, that's him up and running.

As most will know, he's the big lad that scored the goals for last years U-19's.

It's quite strange watching him play as he adopts a role similar to Higdons, generally staying central. That's not to say that he can't pull defenders around, as he does make good runs out wide and moves well around the box. He also has a good touch and finds himself in the right place most of the time. Just needs to react a little quicker around the goal now and put his chances away.

Surprisingly, one of the things it looks like he needs to work on is his heading. Like to see Annan's coaches work on making him more of a threat at set pieces. Some fans feel, and i tend to agree with them, that he holds back from fully committing to aerial challenges. Would also like to see him impose himself on the divisions central defenders more, as despite his build, he can get bullied at times.

He seems a popular lad around the squad and is hopefully set to become the same with the fans.

The last guy we had from Belgium ( albeit he was Spanish born) was a legend was he not? Product of Hammerfist :)

Another benefit of watching a lot of third division football at Annan is that you occasionally get to watch a player come in on loan and make you go 'Oh aye. This kid can play'. Incidentally, Lawless was another.

Had the pleasure of watching a young QoS player for a month. The lads name was David Hopkirk. He played left wing/mid for a few games and he was sensational. He's fast and has tricks and nearly always hit the target - scoring 5 in 3 and assisting in several other goals..

He could of course have played the best three games he's ever had when at Galabank and no doubt he found the standard of defending poorer, but he still handled the flying tackles, got the ball under control instantly and scared the shit out of every defender he came up against.

I was led to believe he's only a contract till Christmas and that's why Queens recalled him so quickly. Wish him all the best anyway and would love to think that we are aware of him.

Not sure but he may of been at killie at some time.
