    well Mcgregor has been mainly playing on the left than Sinclair he's not exactly the strongest either but a great little link man and good footballer.

    He's also better defensively.

    I can see how McClean is not the type of player BR has gone for however it is possible he may cut his cloth for better results in Europe. If we want to punch above our weight then we will need players who will give all they have.

    Endeavour / Hard work can get results if everyone is hard at it in Europe i agree but sometimes that only takes you so far you also need CLASS, Ability will win most of the time it's like the rest of the SPL against us in one-off games .

    He doesn’t exactly lack ability to go along with his hard work.

    I'd bring him in if he can replace Hayes. Otherwise nah. Pass.

    hes much better than Hayes to be part of the squad/team who was a pointless signing to me.
    still think he would be an impact player though.

    The signing of Hayes still baffles me. But we are where we are.

    I really would like him here, but would genuinely be worried for his welfare.

    Dont need him, give wee Mikey Johnstone more game time + Morgan is coming in. Would be a good addition just for the song alone haha. "We all dream of a team of James Mccleans"

    I'll try n give them the benefit of the doubt. However I don't tend to think of Stoke fans as the most enlightened. If James doesn't get off to a great start it could go very sour in a few months time.

    Stoke fans are a horrible bunch they won't take kindly to his views on the poppy either, hopefully they end up sending him out on loan and Celtic get him.

    Out of curiosity I had a look at the main Stoke forum 80 pages of argument about McClean, most are against but a few are ok with it but some of your typical huns comments though like these

    " All the bollocks about uniting the club and fans has gone out.the window with the signing of this scummy *, after over 40 years of being a season ticket holder I'm seriously considering not going while this piece of * represents the club I love. "


    " No thanks scummy ira * .the club say they have learnt lessons well listen to the fans .there are alot of us veterans in the stoke city family who never want this scum near our club .if u buy him he will get booed he should never wear our shirt .hope he has returned all his premiership wages with the queens head on it "
