    Always find these sort of opinions odd, can mind Mascherano couldn’t get a game for West Ham and I’d have still have taken him :56:

    I think that's a rare and weird comparison to use to be fair.

    Burke literally can't get near their squad. This is uninspiring.

    Of course if he was an up and coming Argentinean international who had actually proven himself we would look past that. But he isnt.

    It’s not even that he can’t get a game for West Brom. The vast majority of the time he doesn’t even make their squad.

    The worst of it is...the man who regularly starts at right mid is none other than Matt Phillips.

    Aye, not saying there the same player mate. Just always find it amusing when that’s the only reason given for not wanting somebody.

    Does scream absolute desperation..

    Got knocked back for Harry Wilson. Get's Arzani brought to us when he didn't even know and now wanting a loan from West Brom for 6 month's who is raw as *..

    How about scouting around Europe for a quality winger for a permanent fee..

    It all depends on the deal for me, if we have an agreement in place to buy him at the end it’s up to him to prove he deserves it.

    If it’s just literally a six month loan? Then it doesn’t do much for me.

    Sort out the defence first, we can come back to wingers. We have one capable central defender and he is on loan!

    They paid 15 as well what, a year ago?

    I can't imagine we'd even go to half that so I can't see some cut price, unless they're unlikely willing to take a 10 mill hit..

    Some kinda loan to buy as he does have the potential to be a good player, would be decent at an affordable price..

    I genuinely think it's desperation though..

    If it’s mostly loan deals we do this month tells me Brendan is off in summer 100%

    Can’t disagree mate, lazy Congerton scouting again.

    No doubt. Making sure he goes out cleaning up domestically and then off..

    IF that's the case, which wouldn't surprise me..

    Yep. Looks exactly like that..

    Still early day's though..

    When Peter Houston left our scouting system a few years ago he said he was amazed at how good our system was. He said there was a catalogue of players in every single position which would then be scouted in further depth if tthe manager identified it as an area which required improvement.

    Why are we consistently having to loan players in the forward positions if this is the case?

    There must be players in Eastern European/Nordic countries that would improve us? Instead of a constant cycle of short termism with Roberts, Musonda, Arzani and now the proposed Burke.

    Loans have their purpose if used correctly but we're leaning on them far too heavily. At a time when we have 10s of millions in the bank and the squad is in dire need of immediate quality.

    I don’t know anything about this boy so not sure if he would have an impact with us or not what I would say though is I can see sense in getting another winger in if it allows Johnston and morgan to go out on loan and get games under their belts providing he is better than them. Young players need to be playing games to develop. This is the perfect time to do it. If you compare Christie and Kouassi. Christie has benefitted from playing with Aberdeen and looks a player . Kouassi is the exact opposite his development has stopped because he hasn’t played enough games and been held back. Hopefully they don’t make the same mistake with Johnston and Morgan.

    Maybe that catalogue of players got thrown out and our scouting philosophy might have changed since Rodgers came in

    But he was head of operations. We must have had a strategy for after he left as well..

    If I'm no mistaken he was taking more of a back seat role the closer he was to leaving us?

    Likes of Houston, McGlynn etc must've been assigned list's of player's to track or league's..

    I don't know how exactly we operate that way. Would be interested to know and if/how it's changed since Brendan's arrived....as it seems to be more focused on England, loan's and less gems from unfancied league's..

    As far as I know he pretty much ran everything mate, was his own systems in place, his networks, his databases. No doubt it’s still there but it’s not in use.

    That would be criminal and negligent on our part to no even use him and his data. Even moreso if he isn't working for any other club's..

    Because Rodgers wanted Congerton in who is his guy.

    Basically everything Congerton touches turns into an absolute train wreck.
