    Mohamed Elyonoussi and Andrija Zivkovic.

    Also, I assume you were trying to be smart there. If you genuinely believe that there are no other players we could get with the same qualities of Michael * O'Halloran I despair.

    On a bit of good form, he's an average SPL player with lots of pace to burn, probably end up going to the Sheep or Hearts.

    He's not as good as Andy Driver at that age and he was nowhere near good enough for us while being a decent SPL player.

    I don't think he would offer anything. Other than pace, being honest though I think this is the price range and type of player we can only realistically get now.

    He was destroyed by injuries, just as he looked like he was flying he had two or three injury hit seasons and never lived up to the promise.

    Mid table average SPL players is our level?

    You having a giraffe?

    Our resources dwarf the rest of the SPL teams ten fold. No chance is our level anywhere near that of midtable spl dross.


    Some bargains can be had from shopping in this league, some cracking players are around. But our level is not of the same of St Johnston!

    A technically limited pace merchant who thrives on having space to run into.

    Wouldn't get the space in Scotland, and doesn't have the ability to make a mark in Europe.

    Not really. We appear to be stock buying these sort of players now. Cheap, low risk for want of a better expression squad players.

    I cant actually see a way out of it. So just getting used to other transfer windows us beating the likes of the Zombies, Hearts & Aberdeen to this sort of player.

    I can see the logic of it. You know what you're getting when buying the best SPL players, and the fact they're cheap does make them low risk. We know the domestic players and what they're capable of, we know that they won't need to adapt to a new culture etc.

    We've profited from this strategy in the past, but we should't be using it exclusively. Unless of course the other Scottish clubs can start producing really special players. If we build a team of the best Scottish talent, we'll never progress in Europe. We still need to supplement them with talent from abroad, but the money we save could (in theory) allows us to spend more on individuals from abroad.

    But when you think of the money we've wasted on forwards like Bangura, Pukki, Balde etc, it makes sense to buy Leigh Griffiths knowing full-well he can score for fun in Scotland.

    O'Halloran showed against us that he has * all other than pace.

    If we sign him serious questions have to be asked of the board. Well, I suppose they have already been asked.

    He's a decent SPFL player, that's it.
