Not to tempt fate, but Chris Halkett, Conor Washington, Steven Naismith and Jamie Walker for free or Christian Doidge for 350,000? Tough call.

I missed the line about Jamie Walker at the end of that report as well. It says he was back in training with Wigan yesterday, but he's expected to sort out his release and join us before the Ireland trip.

Dont know much about him but 16 appearances last year 0goals

Cool. I suppose his knees being wrecked or some mysterious pelvic issue thats kept him sidelined for the last 18 months is too much to ask for.

 

Ragin'

 

Nae bother our medical and back room team will soon have him out for 8 months.

 

Am I doing this right?

YouTube. You tube!

(not meaning to sound so offensive, always loved how that massive media format doesn't really translate in Scottish slang).

Its like Vanecek all over again. YouTube highlights amazing but ...

 

Sincerely hope he does well well if he signs.

I’m going to assume given your post count this is very dry humour.

 

if however you are seriously questioning the logic of signing such as this give yourself a massive slap

I'm only getting in there first. ?‍♂️

 

Washington is actually a football player though. Which is nice.

Don’t know a huge amount about him, but he’s played a lot of games in the English Championship for big clubs over the last 4 seasons and is a current international, so sounds like and excellent signing.

 

Don’t see how anyone could be negative about this if it goes through.

He's been a regular for Northern Ireland over the past 5 years, playing out wide and as an out and out striker. Exactly what we need.

Is one not a striker and one a midfielder? Why not both?

Washington can play wide as well as playing up front. Walker's days of playing in wider areas are gone and playing off the striker is Naismith's remit. I doubt Walker would be happy being paid as a back-up so to me he would be an expensive sub (if fit).

More likely Walker passing the ball to Washington.

 

One can only assume we are working through the Wyscout network alphabetically. We've just had V for Vanacek and now we're into W territory with Walker & Washington!

I think we are working through the MacPhee Northern Ireland contact network with Washington. Its been decent so far.

I’m sure O’Neill rates him higher than Lafferty.

JW is an attacking midfielder - his wider area days were mostly gone even when he was playing well for us. I don't see him and Washington competing position-wise at all or style of play wise either. Washington seems to be a striker.

Steven Naismith is an attacking midfielder.

I think we could only afford to pay for access to half the alphabet :( (filtered for players over 6' with injury problems) Levein oot!

I like having a squad of good players personally, to cover for injuries and things. Anyhow, I'm sure none of our players will get injured next season, especially not Naismith.

 

Opshuns:

 

Uche/Washington

Naismith/Mulraney   Clare/Naismith   Walker/Washington

Haring   Djoum/Cochrane

Hickey/White   Berra/Halkett   Souttar   Smith/Brandon

Aye but they are only gonna manage 5 games each as their collective knees are made of glass so we need another 6 similar attacking midfielders to cover all the league matches. 5 if we include Clare. He might stretch to 10 games.
