    If you have the two of them? Change the * formation.

    It’s so strange that we haven’t snapped him up already. By all accounts he has not hit the ground running at any club that’s taken a chance on him.. seems like it should be a formality he comes home.

    By all accounts he’d cost less than Bolingoli now. We know what he can do for us, we know he was motivated playing for our crowd. It seems like a no brainer, think even if he somehow failed at us a year down the line a Championship club would still snap him up for us to break even.

    Seriously though he doesn’t fit in to how we’re going to be playing.

    We’d need to bench one of Ajer, Duffy and Jullien and also bench Ajeti to accommodate him.

    honestly? I think Ajer will be off. If not, it’s whoever plays the best and works the hardest for their place. Chances are it’d end up Forrest again, he done it first time round.

    But as a fan fantasy way? I’d pay good money to see Moi, Rogic, Roberts and Eddy in a 4231 with they 4 on top form.

    I’d love it to happen mate but as things stand he doesn’t fit into how it looks like we want to play.

    If we were to sell Ajer and bring him in then I’d love to see us try something like this domestically.

    Barkas
    Frimpong - Jullien - Duffy - Elhamed
    McGregor - Christie
    Roberts ——————— Elyounoussi
    Ajeti - Edouard​

    Would absolutely rattle teams.

    Frimpong on the overlap as Paddy cuts inside would tear teams apart.

    Every player in that team would be capable of 10 goals a season. Outwith Barkas obv, he’d need to step up his game haha

    Back at Middlesbrough, fair enough paddy, looks to be accepting his level in the English setup, but it will be a poor career in terms of silverware for him.

    Think we are now beyond chasing him in many aspects as much as we need a winger this transfer needs to be forgotten about.

    How old is he now? 24/5? Needs to settle somewhere for his own sake.

    23, looks older though. Wee guy with an old face :giggle1:

    I hope he can realise his potential. He's a dying breed in todays game, full of natural flair but lacks great pace over a distance and can be quite weak.

    With the talent he has though you'd expect him to have done a wee bit better by now. I'd have him back here still, its no surprise our best football in the last decade was when him and Rogic were frequently in the first team. The link up, vision and creativity of those guys are unmatched.

    99% of footballer have a poor career in terms of silverware to be fair. He's already won more than most ever will
