Transfers, Rumours and Delusional Pish 2016/17/18

Recommended Posts

Ross Barbour at Killie should be going to Queen of the South according to his dad a few weeks ago. Think Fowler wants to take him there and has been in contact.

There's a bizarre rumour going round that Warburton is interested in Joey Barton. I'd file that one under delusional pish for the moment!!

Well this one doesn't seem to be going away..... 

Also apparently in talks with Dorrans and a CB from Fenerbache.

If all or any of these are true I'd have serious concerns around the money we're spending on wages.  In saying that, season tickets are going up by 20% on average but it's still on the worrying side.

Away from the financial aspect I'd be amazed if Barton, who has just one promotion with Burnley as well as being their POTY, would want to give up another crack at the EPL to come up to Scotland (assuming Burnley want to keep him, aware he is out of contract).  Dorrans is another one who I'd think would have more attractive offers.

Dorrans is probably the most realistic one, career been on the slide now for a couple of seasons.

With Barton, he is a different kind of player who isnt scared to try out different clubs, could actually see this one happening.

Meanwhile, Hibees linked with Cammy Bell.  Would rather get Mcgovern from Hamilton.

All valid points and would agree. 

I agree with Giblet though, Barton seems so ridiculous you could just see it happening. The guy is a multi millionaire so I'm not convinced money will be the driving force and perhaps the thought of another relegation fight in the EPL doesn't appeal as much as it once did? The connections with Warburton/Dyche and more-so with Frank McParland and Barton is why I think  there may be some truth in it. It's also always promising when none of our daily rags know a thing about it. 

That said, that information isn't exactly secret, and would be very easy to conjure a story out of. Barton's recent tweets also speak of playing in the EPL next year, as did yesterday's appearance on talk sport, so I expect it will come to nothing. :)

Rossiter from Liverpool in Glasgow to finalise his move.  Don't know much about this boy to be fair but I mind when he broke in to the Liverpool team there was a bit of fuss about him (queue "wonderkid" posts) and Liverpool fans seem to be a bit annoyed he's been allowed to move.  Looks like exactly the type of signing we should be making though.  Relatively minimal outlay for a potentially decent player with good sell on value.

I also don't think Barton is all that great a player to be honest, considering the money that would be splaffed on him to get him here.

That said, I suppose I've only seen him play about 5 times this season.

Burnley won the Championship down there and he was there POTY so he must be doing something right.

Valid point about the money. If we are talking purely football ability, he would do very well imo. 

One area I think we need to strengthen is central midfield. Particularly someone with a bit of experience and 'steel' about them. He certainly fits the bill.

We also need a centre half and a striker.  We'll be going down Celtic territotry in terms of midfielders if we sign Barton on top of Rossier, Crooks & Windass.

Aye a centre half is defenitely a priority for me. 

Thing is I know Warburton likes to work with a 'lean' squad but we defenitely need to bolster things a bit if we are to get back challenging for the league again. Aberdeen are proof of that. 

Don't forget we didn't name our full quota of subs this season on a few occasions. I also expect guys to move on and of course our loan signings will go back to their respective clubs.

Greg Stewart to AFC rumours doing the rounds. Unlikely to happen, i'd say.

Have seen guys saying he is overrated but I like him. An area you defenitely need to strengthen from what I've seen.

Would certainly take the creative load off of McGinn and Hayes!

What's the script with Flood and Robson? Time to get them replaced surely?  

Definitely. 

Craig Storie has potential. I'd expect him to play a lot more next season. 

To be honest, i'd love a big, strong, tall, dirty bassa in the middle of the pitch. I'm fed up getting out fought by Hearts, ICT and St Johnstone.

Flood unfortunately still has a year left.

For some utterly bizarre reason McInnes gave him a years extension when he still had two years left on his deal...

Flood will probably go,I expect Robson to start on Sunday before retiring to the locos social club.
