I didn't say it was slow, I said I don't think it's as fast as up here. Players have a bit more time on the ball down there, and to make a pass. Up here, you get closed down quicker, and the second ball becomes more important. It doesn't suit a lot players when they arrive here, they can't handle it, or the physicality.

 

I don't think physicality will be a problem for Whelan.

If he does sign, I genuinely hope he pleasantly surprises me. But this league is played at a very fast pace, you're closed down quickly, you don't get much time on the ball. Not sure that will suit him, especially if he's getting towards the end of his career. 

 

Folk on here pish their pants at Jimmy Dunne who struggled to get a game in the league below where Whelan just played 38 games in a physically more demanding league and position yet question whether whelan will cope?

Glenn Whelan never had any pace to lose. 300 games in the EPL, 80 odd caps for Ireland. The guy will be more than good enough for us. It’s not even worth debating.  He may be 35 but he’s barely missed a game through his entire career.

 

Not just a good player but another wealth of experience and another leader on the pitch.

 

Absolutely cracking signing imo.

Too slow, legs have gone, passing is terrible. Just a few of the comments from Villa fans. I suppose if enough of us do a facepalm he will magically turn out to be midfield general. 

Didn’t know you were a Villa fan? 🤔

With Berra Halkett Whelan (if he signs) Naismith in the pitch there’ll be no hiding place for anyone on that pitch!

Amazing how many on here have said Berra's just about done at 33 yet Whelan is 35/6 in the new year.

Take it you’re not watching Luton v Middlesbrough? If you were, you’d be quietly logging off JKB, hoping nobody had noticed this nonsense. The English game at EPL and Championship is very fast and very physical. The idea that we’re playing the game at a superior speed to anyone is crazy.

Naismith has said himself that he's allowed to basically manage the team and that's played a big part in him staying with us. 

Levein has still just been overseeing things ever since Ann made him 'manager' He let's MacPhee do a lot of it. 

Probably why we're finishing 6th most seasons. 

 

I fully expect to be told i'm talking rubbish.

If (as rumoured) the sheep are in for him then I’d be amazed. How many midfielders do they actually have on their books ? 

I’d hope we would be favourites , certainly over the vermin

 

Ive not heard we are after him.

I think our midfield is done, if anything it’s a CH we need.

It’s absolutely coincemental that all of the dickheads that I have on ignore (whose comments are quoted) are pretty much the only people who are negative on this, and virtually any other signing. Incredible.

In my belief with addition of center mid we also require GK n GS

 

Happy to wait till January for them if possible

Constantly amazes me. Exactly what level do they think we should be shopping at, given the strict wage structure in place?

Pretty academic talking him up or down, we can only judge him when he plays if he signs. Going into the league campaign with so many questions surrounding midfield is worrying though.

“I’ve taken a lot of notes from managers throughout my career because I enjoyed it. But, as you get older, it means a bit more. I do want to go down that route and since I’ve come here I’ve naturally done that with the players, especially the younger ones. I have those characteristics.

“The manager lets me get on with that – he’s good in that way. I understand the balance. It’s just me passing on advice at the moment but, looking back, Hearts have got loads of young guys into coaching. Jack Ross was here, Foxy [Liam Fox] and Jon Daly as well. It’s a club that gives you that opportunity so why would I not be interested?

Definitely managing the entire squad and not just mentoring the young lads. Agree entirely.
