Maluary Martin still not found a club. Crazy that he is only 30 as well. 

 

Probably 30 stone the bone idle lazy get.

 

Looking forward to seeing Damour today. I think he will be an integral part of our team.

Watched this video and was blown away. Not only brilliant at winning the ball but seems adept and making defence splitting passes. 

 

4 mins 16 secs, clearly knows where the ball is going before the attempted pass is even made.

 

Promising stuff.

Quick direct accurate movement of the ball every time. Something we've lacked for what seems like a lifetime. Good feelings about this dude. I Loic it!

Spins bit of skill, switch of play, links,  tackle,  vision. Poor finish by look of it but that's Naismiths job.

 

Uses his body well too

Just been watching Championship review of 17/18 on Sky by pure coincidence. Within a minute of switching on our boy appears robbing a man in midfield lovely reverse pass and a goal. 

Featured more with headers tackles pressure. 

This guy is going to be a legend. 

 

Bookmark it if you like. 

 

Arnaud Djoum. I'm so over you ex

 

 

I'd have liked him and Djoum together.

Naismith in front.

Indeed. But this goes against what many people have argued, that’s my point. 

 

I thought people generally argued that Levein (as DoF) didn't decide who to sign which doesn't go against anything I said.

 

I've never read anyone arguing that Levein had no literal involvement whatsoever in transfers and that Neilson/Cathro would handle the arrangments/discussions/etc.

 

That seems similar to arguing Budge doesn't look at the accounts.

Sad reality is that almost all of those well timed tackles will be stick on fouls and yellow cards with the jokers in black up here.  Just hope his head doesn’t go down when this inevitably happens.

What formation would you play and who would you drop if we added another striker? It isn't about adding one player who is going to grab the mythical 20 goals. It is about adding goals all over the pith.

 

Halkett 5+

Walker 10+

Naismith 10+

Washington 10+

 

Added to the goals already in the squad from last season that will make a massive difference. Perhaps a challenge to Aberdeen for 3rd place which is the realistic target.

As it stands, I wouldn’t play Uche.

 

It is also for the squad as well as when Maclean and Wighton are required, they aren’t going to be good enough as we have already seen.

Naismith, Washington and Walker will have a field-day with this boy in the middle. His ability to win the ball and find a runner will cause teams all sorts of problems.

Almost all of his shots seem on target but lack venom. Maybe get a few goals with the poorer quality of keeper up here compared to EPL and English Championship. Very excited about this lad signing.

Looked closer to 10 stone in his HeartsTv interview. Very trim and athletic, also done a full pre season and isn’t (currently) injured.

Folk need to watch Uche when other Hearts players are scoring goals. Whether it is intentional or accidental he creates loads of space and panic in defences. This has been utilised by Halkett and Naismith to steal in and score headed goals. He also provided a brilliant assist for Walker last weekend. He is a great option to have

in our squad. If we could have Uche, Naismith, Lafferty and Washington- that would give us four very different options to unlock those tricky bottom six defences.

To me, he is a marque player.  Gets people off their seats.  Not too many of them in the pound.  Last one I can think of is Zeefuik.

 

Very glad we have him.

Looks like he will be an excellent signing IMO, excited to see him in action. Lets hope he gets time to bed in before folk start moaning he's not Blaise Matuidi though :lol:

Certainly has the ability to succeed

His tackling isn’t exactly great either. It sometimes lacks that bit of bite that could take the ball away from an opponent.”

Had to laugh at this. 

Surely a Hibs fan put this together. 

The original picture has this written under it... 

"Damour has questionable technical ability"

Marquee, in the sense that neither Uche nor Zeefuick could fit in a regular tent?

Some geezer called Ben Banks who has worked in youth football and for the BBC with a strong knowledge of Scottish Football.Just reinforces my feeling that this will be great acquisition.

After the Scott Sinclair dodgy Sunday morning dealing, after we were allegedly led to believe we couldn’t register a player on a Saturday, if Craig wants him to play the SFA better be doing some serious overtime on our behalf!

Damour was speaking in his interview on the basis that he was starting. 

 

I am am fairly sure he signed Thursday and the papers went to the SFA then. 

 

Signing announced yesterday. Approval to play already on the bag.

Totally agree - we now need the rest of the team to be runners !!  We will need to be more attacking/transition minded when in possession otherwise it'll be the usual sideways/backwards stuff

Damour looks like a direct replacement for Djoum, in my opinion. Get a feeling that he will be an upgrade, an expectation that may be quickly disappointed tomorrow!

Hopefully until Haring comes back from injury or we sign someone else he can play that role and allow Clare or Irving to push further forward. That is good to know though 👍

Not seen much comment on him today.

Thought he had a very promising debut given how little he has played.

Broke attacks up well and tidy passing very few wasted.

One of the VERY FEW plus's in today,s performance.
