The Small-Medium Rebuild 2018'19

Recommended Posts

A USA youth international who has spent his entire career in England called Gboly Ariyibi saying in an interview how delighted he is to be coming to play in the SPFL!

 

Looks like a really good signing.

We’ve got a Cadden-size hole on the right for another couple of months so looks like a good shout

Cadden replacement? That was my thought as I watched the clip.

                       Gillespie

Tait    Hartley   Aldred   Livingstone

              Campbell Turnbull

Ariyibi Mccormack Hastie/frear

                     Johnson 

I would expect Mchugh and Dunne to be out for a good few weeks still, with it being a head knock.

Only change from that for me now would be McCormack up top n Johnson playing off him

Ok I deserved that :doh: still think it's made up , though somebody on Wikipedia is having a laugh, going forward I think "the American boy" will do fine if we need to encourage him.

He’s certainly got “skills” and he’s quick,not exactly a finisher though, I can see some pretty wayward balls into the box at times.

The good news is it's easier to teach someone to cross a ball than it is to teach them how to be fast.

Once McCormack is fit, of course. Robinson was saying in the papers that he might not be available for the next few games.

Looks good to me. Only worry is that he is too fast for our lot and will end up crossing the ball to an empty space! It's a long time since I've seen someone as  fast and can  tackle too. No wonder he gets injured, they'll hack the legs from him up here.

If any signing was to signal that Robbo may have a concussion, it would be that one.

Scott Allan rumour still circulating surely we would have to lose some of our midfield players to accommodate him . 

Interesting. Good wee player Allan. But, aye, surely we would need to be moving players out. Can't see it somehow. 

You'd think Hibs or Aberdeen would want him but perhaps a non starter as more direct challengers to Celtic.

Allan is surely Hibs bound? I wouldn’t rule us out signing a midfielder though if we can move Bigi on.

Ariyibi looks like an interesting prospect, plenty raw ability for us to try and develop. Great to have a bit of pace in the squad and I wonder if we are targeting more in the form of Michael O’Halloran.

Yep, surely not a chance if Hibs are interested, can’t see it myself.

If Scott Allan comes in, I guess we are selling David Turbull.
