    In the position he plays I’d argue you could remove your tongue from your cheek!

    We have, but where we play week in, week out, for them to choose coming here as well, especially after talking to the manager… if it happens makes me think not only talent the attitude is completely right for being here.

    If it’s a non-starter because of SPFL, then I have complete confidence Ange wouldn’t want him anyway.

    So if it’s a real thing, and it happens, I’ll be * excited.

    Should be, guys like Xavi must be confused why guys don’t do inch perfect passes every time, he’ll just think (in Catalonian) “* easy mate, just thread the ball through 6 players”

    Alex collado would be one of the best technical and ball control players in our league if he signed.

    I he good enough to be playing in a Barcelona midfield/wing, nope. At 23 doe he have the potential to still make it there, unlikely.

    He would * all over our league and out himself in a big shop window in the UCL.

    Get it done.

    I'm confused, are we all talking about the same player?

    People are saying winger, then rogic replacement and now wanyama.

    Looks very different across highlight videos. In Barca youth and B team he wore the no 10 and played off the left, looked a Paddy Roberts type, but on his recent loan he seemed to be a more traditional attacking/centre mid. You see him tracking back in the middle of the pitch a lot, winning tackles. He's quite tall but has great balance and looks a good dribbler. So basically aye, he looks quite different from video to video.

    If it's a loan with an option to buy I'd be happy with it, but if it's only a season long loan I don't see the point. I can see that being a good move from the club's perspective but not the player's. We have a lot of our own players that need game time to develop further, and I can't see this guy agreeing to come to just be back up cover for them, but why would we give a guy that will be away in a year the game time that would be better used on our own players barring an injury crisis?

    So yeah, I'd like to get the player but not if he's going to be off in a year and it hinders the improvement of the guys we already have in midfield and on the wings.

    Just now we have abada on the right and keel dislodging jota due to lack of options on the right. Get him in. Try our hardest for loan to buy. I don't see it being any other way. Ange doesn't waste his time.

    Gotta be honest he sounds ideal. We need a more creative and attacking player to bring on in the number ten role if our midfield haven't broken down a team. Being able to do a job on the right too.

    Hopefully we can loan out Johnstone and this guy can come in and be the player we wanted Mikey to be

    I don't think Jota has been played on the right due to lack of options, it's more because Ange wants to play Maeda on the left.

    Collado looks an exciting player. From the videos he looks a bit of a workhorse in midfield,is strong in the tackle,and likes to surge forward to the dge of the box,and he would give us more height and strength in the centre of the pitch.

    I would rubber stamp this.
