Famous 1874

Walsall are ****ed here. Either they take what they are offered by us now, otherwise we’ll sign him on a free in the summer.

Same. I like a striker who can be in the right place at the right time and to show some composure to be able to slot these chances home. 

 

He looks like he's often the first man into the box which is what I like to see from a striker. A big lad like him would surely cause a lot of confusion in the box if he's in there early creating loose balls for, say, Boyce and Naismith to turn in and Irving and others to come on to any headed clearances. He looks quite brave, too.

 

Half a season in the Championship might serve him well before the larger step up to the Premiership so getting him in now might well give us a better player next season.

This assumes we are the only club remotely interested. Let’s talk to him, get him signed on a pre contract, and THEN they’ll have to take our offer or have him leave for nothing.

Indeed. Again, probably because their lower expectations and their budget dictates their need to do so, outweighs the risk. 

We had a set up through there but closed it down.

Definitely 👍

 

This, along with the noise coming from the Walsall support who seem to be quite gutted about losing him, saying he'll do well etc, is encouraging. Hopefully we can get a deal done.

Have you actually verified that? Sure I know one.

 

Theres the Anuoluwapo Oluwaferanmi Oluwatomi Oluwalanas Ayomikulehin Adebayos fi Tranent.

Not sure if they have an Elijah mind.

Think he looks quite quick for his size. He's got the sort of build that Lukaku had in his West Brom days.

This would be my move also.

Also means he's more likely to put pressure on from inside.

From that video it looks like he is far more comfortable and natural with a ball at his feet than Uche ever was. 

He can play a five yard pass so it's already an upgrade.

Tell you what, for a big guy most of his goals are poacher type ones which is a good thing along with j his strength and power to create for others.

Boy's two-footed too. Seem to recall, that Sow's stats weren't brilliant either upon joining us. 

 

I doubt he's here to be the next Robbo. **** it, let's hound him anyway. Is Levein getting the blame for this, or is Savage getting it, for recommendation of supposed lower league diddies?🤔

Correct. I give you "the wizard" that is Craig Wighton as a fine example of that.

Dundee were in the same league when we signed him.

Decent watch

A 6-yard box striker, which we are crying out for.

I have posted many times that I thought Boyce would be this, but he wants to be involve Harry Kane style.

Yes, Levein is the only manager in football to sign tall strikers.

 

Any chance we can look forwards and not backwards?

will wait to see him play before passing judgement if we do sign him, seen us sign enough dead cert quality signings who turned out pish to last a lifetime

I think this is encouraging. Given his contract situation we have presumably spoken to him and had some indication that he's interested. Being optimistic we may have already agreed rough terms on a pre contract and are now asking Walsall about the possibility of getting him this month rather than the summer.

Cosgrove didn't exactly inspire at Carlisle or at Aberdeen initially.

That's true and had been picked up originally by a Premier club. 

 

Sometimes takes a while for taller players to learn their body and brush off awkward movements

Might as well the boy can’t get a game for Preston so obviously not good enough for us

For the last few years many on here have rightly complained that we do not use the lower English leagues for signings, sighting Motherwell and Aberdeen as the prime examples. Now we are doing what they complained about and they are complaining. Unreal.

Assume you're talking about Roberts and Frear, whom I agree have been utter pish at doing this. Ginnelly is still sort of finding his feet I think, but he has done well getting down the line and getting it into the box. GMS has played about 20mins but historically has been this type of player too. Smith and Kinglsey also like to get forward and do the same. Irving puts some dangerous balls in from set-pieces...

 

If he can attack the ball in the box, and if he can wrestle with defenders, he'll do alright. He certainly has the physical attributes we're screaming out for right now. Whether or not he has the technical ability of course remains to be seen.  Normally when we're linked with a striker I look at their goals v appearances and am normally pretty underwhelmed to see they're scoring at a rate of a goal every 9-10 games or something. This lad, while still young and with less than 100 pro appearances to his name, is sitting at 1 in 4. 

 

 

Rather than "doing an Uche", I'd much prefer he held them off, within the rules and using his strength and physique effectively.   :thumbsup:

You’re right about Duffy, I thought too. I think it shows that CHs can look much better with their team sitting on their own 18 yard line, Halkett being another example.

Since we gave someone the SD job who has a great knowledge of the lower leagues in England, and the wage cap in L1&2, and Brexit, we were always likely to signing players from down there for the next while anyway.

Apparently Walsall have refused us permission to talk to player

My pal just called. A huge Walsall fan and says our offer has been rejected(maybe old news?). Says he's a big unit but can't jump. Good at holding the ball up and can dribble. Says Gordon is the guy to go for (no idea what his contract situation is)

That’s not right. We don’t need permission. Possibly we’ve made an offer which they rejected but they can’t stop us talking to him or signing him on a pre contract agreement

Exactly - one or two on here with the mindset that they want the players we sign to fail.

New signings have always excited me, some work out some not, that's football. Hope we sign the lad and hope is a success. If he pulls on the maroon and gives 100% he will get my and most Hearts fans backing. Sadly there are a few that would rather he flopped, strange people and best ignored.

I have posted many times that I thought Boyce would be this, but he wants to be involve Harry Kane style.

Exactly what I see. Jane has dropped very deep this year and Boyce seems to be playing deeper and trying too hard/be clever which involves him losing the ball. I would rather he did a one touch lay off and turned to run behind and be in the box but he doesn't. Neilson seems to have identified that too so fingers crossed it we get this lad it allows Boyce to be more prolific in and around the box.

Hmm...seems to spend all his time lurking around their opponents' six yard box pouncing on chances and scoring goals.  But where are his defensive qualities??  Aha!  You see?  Not good enough for Hearts.

Surely if a player is out of contract at the end of the season they are free to speak to whoever they like about a new deal after their existing contract expires.

 

Do the rules not state that you can sign a pre contract agreement in January?

 

I wonder if this article is about us wanting to take him now for a fee? and this is what they are refusing.?

I thought they'd done well to sign Duffy and was surprised he was moving to Celtic (other than the fact that he's a supporter). 

 

But aye, he's dire.

We could get him on a pre-contract now aye, but he wouldn't join up with the squad until the summer. If we want him now, we'll have to pay some kind of fee. Assuming that's what's been rejected (if it has).
