    Said on Talksport, I presumed the way it was done it was official, but doesn't seem to be.

    So looks as though we're gonna announce him and Jota on deadline day.

    Obvous we need another CB, LB and another striker if Griffiths and Edouard go but I reckon these two will be all we get.

    Decided this guy was * last week.

    I have now decided that he will in fact be good. I have of course thought about this in great detail and cannot be wrong.

    Hard to say with the LB, Scales might be good enough

    Exactly this, seems very odd. Could be bargain of the decade, henke only cost about £850k if I remember right , but at 26 why weren’t more club’s clambering to sign him ?

    Why is this taking so long? Has he signed or is he going elsewhere.

    Because we like to pretend we've been working hard right up until the deadline and use signings we effectively completed a day or two ago and announce them with hours until the deadline.

    Mind that time we announced Okoflex like twice?

    Because our board, as usual, will announce him and Jota together with Eddy and Christie leaving so they can claim those are their substitution when in fact they aren't. Would have needed a left winger anyway.

    We made millions since January in transfers and get cheap substitutes as usual. Sh**t the board!

    Fully expect this guy and Jota to be announced late today to make it look like they’ve worked on it right upto the last minute

    If he'd done it consistently we'd have been priced out by a bigger/richer team no doubt, we're taking a real gamble that he's a late bloomer and this wasn't a one-off season.

    Think this guy is an ideal replacement for GRIFFITHS, but absolutely not for Eddy... If eddy goes and this is the replacement we're looking at trouble ahead against packed defences.

    The system emplyed against St. Mirren (orthodox wingers) will dismantle packed defenses. Edouard was landing us into trouble against those teams be cause he didn't attack the box.

    Last year, we scored one headed goal by a striker (Leigh Griffiths). Isn't that crazy.

    It's been a long time since we had a striker that we could whip a ball into the box for and he'd just know where to be and muscle his way to a header.

    People are talking about breaking down packed defences, sometimes you have to mix it up. If Ross County know all we're gonna do it play it through the middle and try to find lines and triangles then theyll pack the middle. If we also can play wide and fire in crosses then it forces them to try cover those angles too and stretch themselves.

    He will offer something Eddy didn't and hopefully Ange can improve him further.
