explain?

 

The table clearly shows that the Danish league is ranked higher than the SPL, whether its accurate it could come to debate, and maybe not solely based on the style or football ability - but still an official site with accurate data that you cant completely disregard

Was expecting more thorough than that

 

What I said makes perfect sense: its an official ranking, whether the football is any better who knows, but the league is ranked higher than SPL

The main point of your post was how well Amankwaa was doing . Except he's not doing well .

You continue to post about the comparative level of the league he is in . 

Best just to stop it

how would you describe him doing well? I didn't necessarily sing his praises saying he was doing amazing - I merely pointed out he's moved up a league and seems to be doing well - or better I should have said.

 

he's done more in 7 games in a higher league than he did with us - the crux of my entire point was that people on here write players off before they are given a chance. Yes I admit after 7 games it isn't that much, but he has managed 1 goal even if most of the appearances have been as a sub.

 

My whole point in bringing up Amankwaa was for fans to stop writing players off before they've had a chance to hit the ground running, and given a chance to find their feet again, in Aidy White's example, he hasn't played football in 2 years, due to injury - therefore its not going to be a couple of months to get him up to scratch

 

that's what I've been trying to say

Did Levein not write him off without giving him a run in the team, or not get him fit enough. Are you criticising him too or just fans moaning about him on JKB which has no bearing on whether this guy would succeed with us, that’s on CL.

I remember Craig saying something about he needed further training to get back up to speed

 

I wasn't criticising Amankwaa I was criticising fans who are too quick to write a player off - Amankwaa may not be the best example as I admit he wasn't amazing but overall, as fans, there needs to stop being a hardened time period that a player has to be playing great football at, before he is written off for good. Its happening too often and players respond to it from the crowds, and feel the negativity towards them building - despite how professional you, that cannot be an easy thing to overcome or deal with whilst trying to play.

it would certainly be a wild card! He is a decent pedigree, but before I get shot down and destroyed and reminded several bad players we've had were "good pedigree", I wont say much more than that

Maybe be it’s happening because the players are either not up to it or the manager has thrown them in too quickly when they’re not ready. Amankwaa/Clare/Wighton/Vanacek were played when they weren’t ready, we can’t afford to do that in the first team, because of other mistakes made. The fans want to see something from players, Ricardo Fuller was awful in his first game but was great after that, fans won’t wait months to see it.

Yeah I guess these countries are not followed well, which is annoying as they are rated higher, but we bring in more crowds and support our teams so much more!

It’s hard to tell which league is better as there are not really a direct comparison. Club Coefficient is 18v22 in their favour whereas country coefficient is 10v20 in our favour.

Just wondering how far away White is from being involved?

 

Correct me if I'm wrong, not noticed him involved in pre season ?

 

I know he's a project but given the injury history times not exactly on his side. Hoped we would maybe of seen a few glimpses of him by now

Played any bounce games? If he's not getting minutes in those could still be a long way off first team, if we ever see him(it's a huge ask)

Not yet, though neither has Halkett or Uche. From Levein's comments he will play on Saturday.

Quote from Levein tonight after the game.

 

"The 26-man-squad will now train in Dublin for four days before heading to Belfast to take on Glenavon on Saturday 6th July.
 
“It’ll be a more experienced side. We’ve got players who are waiting to make their debuts – Jamie Walker, Conor Washington, Craig Halkett.
 
“They’ll all be involved come the weekend. Uche [Ikpeazu] should be okay to be involved as well. I would certainly say it’ll be a stronger team.”

Guessing here, but I think he would be registered as of yesterday 1st July and it was said to be "subject to international clearance".  Don't know if this causes any delay.

Was scratching my head as to who “Uche” was there for a millisecond. Thank goodness they cleared that up.

Ah thanks. No clue where he was yesterday. Wasn’t sitting behind the bench, on the bench, or away in the opposite stand with the other reserves. Maybe he took the day to get stuff moved as he knew he wouldn’t be playing.

Sounding pretty promising. If he can reach & maintain fitness I think out LB position could be solved with him & young Hickey.

Good article.  As you say, having the option to rotate two very good left backs is a positive one.

 

If White works out, he could be a star for us.  Huge gamble due to fitness but knowing that Hickey is behind him makes it one that we can afford to take.

Possibly. Managed 70 mins in one of last weeks closed door games and apparently looked the business. Just more strengthening and conditioning needed. Expect him in first team within 2-4 weeks

Oh, come on! I'm not normally one to pick up on folks spelling or grammar, I've grudgingly came to accept that could of and should of aren't going anywhere soon.
