Otterspocket, i was speaking to a big jambo supporter in our local shop who has been a hearts season ticket holder and shareholder for over 40 years and follows hearts everywhere. He told me today that he has it from a very good source of his that lawrence shankland is a done deal to sign for rangers in the close season ? so i have the same info as yourself mate ? I've also been told that even in january alex rae was constantly in clement's ear that we should have signed shankland in january never mind this summer ? All the jambo i was talking to would say it's from a very high position he got his info and he ain't happy that as far as he's concerned, shankland is signing for rangers,
time will tell ?.

he is to old and to slow we have to do better.

20 Apr 2024 18:28:53
We need to replace dessers and roofe and get the home grown quota up its a no brainer as long as we are getting a main striker in on top.
Danilo will be a dud as well.

20 Apr 2024 18:53:52
He can still show Dessers how to finish?.

20 Apr 2024 19:22:19
Car-d blue, how about Mbappe, Haaland, Salah, or Bellingham? Are they better enough. We need to be realistic as to where we are - we are no longer a club that can attract the best players like the 90's - had Shankland signed in Jan, then I've no doubt we'd be top of the league just now.

20 Apr 2024 20:00:30
Aberdeen scored twice today from crosses to back post. We can’t do that with a 100 corners. Different type of player to what we have.

20 Apr 2024 20:29:22
Totally agree SirStruth ?.

20 Apr 2024 22:03:32
I wonder if we’ll see a change to the system if he does indeed sign? I’m not sure he’s going to chase down every lost ball or press on the same way Dessers does today.

If he does sign I wish him the best of luck.

20 Apr 2024 22:38:16
Really don’t want Shankland he’s nothing special. he's beyond slow.

20 Apr 2024 23:20:38
SWS I was told the only reason we didn’t sign him in January was because we were skint and needed to sell first to buy him but it didn’t work out. Shanks is desperate to sign for us. I got laughed at on here when he was at Ayr Utd and I said we should sign him for £100k…………my ex team mate played for Ayr Utd, my other ex team mate managed Ayr Utd and won a Scottish Cup with Killie. My ex team mates son is one of the best talents we have in our youth system. I am not saying I know everything but I do hear stuff that is credible.

21 Apr 2024 06:06:42
Otterspocket I was the same I wanted him at that stage too but relatively risk free at that type of fee but the fees hearts reportedly wanted for him i wouldn't be shelling out that type of figures, I feel it waa too much.

21 Apr 2024 06:39:26
Otterspocket, out of a matter of interest mate, do you know the possible fee involved for shankland have you heard what the fee is likely to be ?.

21 Apr 2024 07:07:57
Otters/ GJD - Was of same opinion when he was at Ayr and many of my Gers supporting mates were the same at that time and wanted us to give him a go then - football snobbery got in way - our lower leagues have given Scotland some great talent over the years - hopefully we get back to a stage of signing good Scottish talent in its youth and get some identity back too.

21 Apr 2024 08:19:52
Lawrence Shankland would definitely have made a big difference especially on the domestic front same way kris Boyd done first time around.

21 Apr 2024 08:35:13
SWS no the conversation didn’t include the price. Think the figure branded about in January was 3 or 4 million. Personally I wouldn’t mind Shankland and Miovski but really unlikely.

21 Apr 2024 08:58:55
What kind of trading model do we want? Shankland McBurnie McNair, all probs looking for their last big contract and NO sell on value?
I hope PC has better younger cheaper targets in line.

21 Apr 2024 09:16:40
How do you know danilo will be a dud?!?!?!?! He hasn't a decent run to prove himself and what he has had he has proven to be more effective in front of goal than dessers.

21 Apr 2024 09:17:00
I’m not Shanklands biggest fan, nor do I think he will take us to the next level. HOWEVER, recent weeks have shown that we can get the ball in the 6 yard box and Dessers cannot put it in the net the way Shankland can. We would be top of the league with Shankland instead of Dessers.

21 Apr 2024 09:46:58
My issue bar72 is our trading model selling Patterson and Bassey did nothing stopping us losing maybe 3 champions league direct entry. We should be selling raskin, hagi, McCausland and Cantwell for profits. As well as Butland. Promote Rice etc but we don’t or won’t. Makes business sense. We want to keep a 32 year old right back at the expense of a 24 year old, because he scores more than our forward line. Shankland gives us something different and takes penalties.

Our trading model doesn’t mean every player we bring in has to have a sell on value increase, if so we have a major issue. We have spent and are about to spend millions on projects that have and will increase our revenue for ffp. However the club is built on traditions and has been built on success. I am old enough to have seen a lot and the swings and roundabouts that football brings. However in the last 7 years we have won the equivalent of a treble, a treble. We are not a European heavy weight, we don’t have a mentality of you don’t win nothing but great European nights. 2 horse race in Scotland and we are second. Been patient and waiting on the success that our board said would be delivered, well that’s run out.

21 Apr 2024 10:30:32
Seems to be little or no chance of us taking any chances of promoting youth, baffles me and by the looks if it we'll lose nsio, lovelace, rice and yfeko, maybe more, Barcelona played a 17yr old the other night, totally different level, the boy done well, yes Barcelona gt beaten, but a 17 Yr old in an ECL 1/ 4 final, n we very rarely play youth in our first team in the SPL or Cup, no real incentive for them to stay, or am I missing something?

21 Apr 2024 10:32:34
Bar72, it is ok having a trading model if you have already developed the strategy and you have the players coming through to fill the gaps when a quality player is sold. We don't have that.
You also need a Board of Directors that have the investment potential to dig deep initially and when the need arises.
Under King's direction and prior to Wilson coming on board as DoF our prime objective was to get back to having a team capable of winning the league. (I'm not saying that King was the Messiah, far from it, but that was his plan) .
When Parks took over he was to all intent a dictator and he did little to take the Club forward. The appointment of Wilson was objectively to maximise income from the sale of players but they were never replaced with better quality and our youth system remained as not fit for purpose. Our CEO at the time was not commercial and just one of Parks' lackys.
We should be thankful to those that saved the Club in our time of need, and the supporters were no small part of that, however we need to move on. We need fresh money and fresh faces in the Boardroom. It is there, the problem is getting rid of those that add nothing, don't have the investment or are not willing to invest that are only there for the club tie and the blazer.

21 Apr 2024 10:54:20
Windy and Berkshire, I agree with both of you and for me the rebuild should have started after '55', 2 or 3 good young signings every window, replacing the deadwood, instead of rushing to loans, freebies and hanging onto players well past their sell by date, was and is a big mistake. As is signing players with no sellon, and big wages, again puts us on the back foot.
I don't think we will ever have the money for a mega rebuild so we need to buy smart, and young, and hopefully sell on for a profit.

21 Apr 2024 11:29:12
If we get Shankland on a free then it's a no brainer. Forgot trying to negotiate with Hearts. They'll want stupid money.

21 Apr 2024 11:34:16
Wonder how many on here who don't want Shankland didn't think Boyd was good enough? We don't need a heedless chicken running about up top on his own in the spfl we need a proper goalscorer like Shankland.

21 Apr 2024 12:46:05
The thing is we don't know how a player will be for us until he gets here (if he ever does) . Same ones saying shankland would win us the league, shankland will score for fun, it's same ones who said cifuentes is a baller raskin will run riot who will make us millions.

21 Apr 2024 13:20:53
Nope. I never said that. Shankland is a penalty box player and at times we need that. Not looking for pace but a threat, cause CH issues etc. An addition not the overall solution.

21 Apr 2024 13:29:40
The people that loved Frankenstein Cosgrove want Shankland, we need strength and genuine pace . People can laugh at McBurnie and Che Adams but no club at the level they are at will ever go for Shankland, or clubs like Dykes is playing at for that matter .

The manager will find the right players and that big lump ain't one of them, no chance.

21 Apr 2024 13:31:08
Shankland won’t be free.

21 Apr 2024 17:27:17
On todays showing I think I would rather have dessers.

21 Apr 2024 18:16:48
He really schooled Dessers today eh. Away with the absolute nonsense about Shankland. He will never play for us.

21 Apr 2024 19:58:05
Fellow bears. From a very good source, the reason Shankland has not signed for us in this current season is he has a clause in his contract which states he can NOT be sold to another team in the SPFL during his contractual agreement ??. Until he has 6 months left and contractually allowed to speak with other clubs in the SPFL he will be a Hearts player or going elsewhere in Europe.

21 Apr 2024 20:22:16
Was told today that Clemente did not pursue Shankland in January and won’t be looking at him in the summer. To put it simply, he thinks he’s too slow.

This came from the player himself.

21 apr 2024 21:16:48
kingandukster, there's truly nothing more nonsensical than someone saying

“ the same peo0le who said this are the same people who said that”

utter nonsense, how on earth do you know its the same people, so you think the thousands who wanted shanks are the sam3 thousands that dudnt want such n such.

22 Apr 2024 08:00:17
I very much doubt we will sign shankland as I said before recruitment will look pretty stupid if they turn nose up twice then go in with player at a higher value than other two opportunities to sign him.

English leagues for shankland I think.

22 Apr 2024 12:39:40
Leerc78 its just my opinion. He misses sitters like dessers but without the physicality. Re danilo.

23 Apr 2024 16:56:46
Dessers physicality not that great to be fair.
