I'd be astounded. Plays for Galatasaray. Outwith our budget on that basis...

And that Galatasaray have said he and Falcao, as high earners, can leave so they can reduce their wage bill as they are in financial trouble.

having played for Valencia, West Ham and Galatasry I'm sure he's always had one eye on coming to FP for the last few years of his career.

Why is he outwith our budget,  Messi was available on a free transfer we were just too slow to respond ahead of PSG, need to think big. :)

It was always his dream to play in Claret and Amber...

 

...now he's done that, next on his list is to play in slightly disappointing black.

If we are going to go crazy with our Scottish government loan the following players are available on frees.

Jerome Boateng

Diego Costa

Radja Nainggolan

David Luiz

Franck Ribery

Hatem Ben Arfa

Shkodran Mustafi

Maicon

Daniel Sturridge

Get wee Nicola to start signing these off and it's a start on filling up our empty squad numbers.

From that list I've only ever heard of Ribery.  Do the others play for lower league teams?

To be fair, you live in a State that doesn't recognize Joe Biden's election win (or evolution).

Maybe they’ll come to their senses and install a democratic governer but I doubt it. Still too many “good ‘ole boys”

Crawford not called on again and not mentioned in Alexander's interview about the extended squad. 

GA obviously wants shot of him but the obvious question is why was he extended? 

Parker another pointless body.

We sign at least one of those every single fucking year! 

You think of Newell, Fisher, Plummer, Sammon, McCormack, Sloth, Ilic, Seedorf, White, McGinley, Parker and much more who have come and gone, some even completely unnoticed over the past three or four years.

For a club that's never done banging on about limited and meagre budgets we don't half spunk it on utter dross constantly and some of whom don't even get near the first team. It's mental!

I think we are always going to go with a couple of fairly cheap long shots.

Don't forget wee Robbo jnr. 

Newell getting an extension but the club not announcing because he was so shite is probably the pinnacle of this. He's playing in the 6th tier of English football now so he might be back on our radar if he can match the 2 goals Amalozur scored last season.

Granted but at the same time we need to be signing the right players who are actually going to make an impact.

Far, far too often we falling short on this and it just seems like our recruitment policy is just sign X amount of players, usually from the English lower leagues and hope we can find a decent one in among them.

Was Newell's dad (Mike) not an ex team mate/friend of Robinson's or something along they lines?
