Reports are we are in for Brophy.

Ok I get people’s points we should be aiming higher but what you have to remember is he will be our THIRD choice striker. A third choice striker who has experience in the SPL and who can score goals against SPL teams I would say is not to bad!

Agree0 Disagree0

Still not interested, I sincerely hope this turns out to be a non starter.

Brophy is not what we need in my opinion.

20 Aug 2019 11:57:26
We just let Lafferty go, who is better than Brophy. We could have had Naismith on a free, who is better than Brophy. Would rather one of our young strikers got a chance.

Awful mate, completely awful.

Our recruitment plan was to be simple, quality over quantity.

We’ve signed 2 players who could be really really good players, the rest are here to make up the numbers.

Our squad has better depth but the quality signings promised have not materialised.

Don’t worry though, we’ll get the same message next year around season ticket renewal.

score against SPL teams? if i'm not mistaken he has sscored once since january. hte guys no where near good enough.

Theswagman, kyle lafferty is better than nobody pal. His attitude stinks and is rid rotten. Brophy has a far better attitude, than lafferty will ever have. As far as i'm concerned, I as a supporter would much rather have a decent professional who has a good attitude within our squad than someone like kyle lafferty who is a total waste my friend.

As usual Coop, making stuff up. How do you know anything about Brophy’s attitude? He’s a Celtic fan, how do you know he’ll burst a gut for us? You’ve absolutely no evidence to say he’s a great professional. He actually looks like he’s carrying a bit of weight to me so I would question that. And if you look at Lafferty’s performances for NI and at Hearts it’s just stupid to say Brophy is better. We just obviously couldn’t get a tune out of him the way those teams could.

Sir_rock_katic, could you at least try to e a little more positive?
1) no ones actually saying we are signing Brophy, it’s purely a rumour. If he were to sign and you don’t think he’s good enough then you can call out Gerrard for signing him.
2) What exactly are you moaning about? We’ve started the season very well, it’s early days but we are looking very strong, much better than last season. The way you’re missing you’d think we hadn’t won a game.
3) we’ve improved the overall strength of the squad to no end. Let’s look at the players brought in over the ones that have left shall we? Edmundson and Helander over McAuley and Worrell? No competition there. Aribo over Coulibaly? Same. Ojo over Candieas, early days but so far contributing far more in terms of goals/ assists. Jones over Kent? Again early days but has started way better than Kent did. The rest? It’s true the likes of Barker, Stewart and Hastie will be squad players but they are adding to our overall strength in depth.
Add to all of this the fact that Davis and Defoe are looking much sharper with a full pre-season and we are looking really strong.
We don’t need to go out and sign two or three players at 5 plus million each, big money doesn’t always mean good players (just look at those across the city and some of our big money flops of the past) . Our current recruitment appears to be a lot smarter and cost affective with players brought in that compliment our team and style of play and offer much better value for money and I for one fully trust Allen, Gerrard and the rest of the scouting department.

20 Aug 2019 13:51:22
Katic - are you telling me that Aribo, Edmundson and Helander haven’t added quality? What were you expecting, Aguero?

20 Aug 2019 14:25:10
Theswagman, i know the family personally, if you read my other post on brophy you would know this. You've probably got a better attitude than that waste of space lafferty. He never stays at any club long as apart from hearts, every other club has stated attitude is his major downfall.

20 Aug 2019 17:28:05
If Brophy did sign and was carrying a bit of extra weight am sure Defoe could help him with improving his diet.

20 Aug 2019 18:24:29
Hahahaha well played mrgrumpy.

20 Aug 2019 18:33:07
So you’ll know they are massive Celtic fans?

20 Aug 2019 19:43:48
Of course i know the family support celtic. I grew up beside Eamonn's dad wullie and his mum lisa. Over the years we've had a good few boyhood celtic fans playing for our great club. I have never once said that i felt Eamonn was good enough for us because i honestly don't know. I think obviously there's better strikers to be going for, but the big problem we have is the striker, IF we do sign one, is going to be 3rd choice. We won't spend big money for a 3rd choice striker and rightly so.

‘We’ve signed two player who could be very very good players’.

What part of that is difficult for you to understand? I’m not actually sure how else I could articulate this?

Aribo and Helander are the two I’m talking about, the rest of the signings are quantity and not the quality we were promised at season ticket renewal.

Perhaps Edmundston might go on to be a good player but for now he appears to be 4th choice so I can’t honestly say he’s a quality signing.

Hopefully this is clear enough for you Ger78 and Theswagman and while I pay my cash each season I’ll continue to be realistic about our recruitment.
