Looks the part here but most do in their videos
Never heard of him, but he looks exactly like the type we need.

Strong, fast, athletic, good in the air, aggressive, comfortable on the ball and left footed.

No idea what he's worth, but I'd love to think we're linked with him.

Probably wouldn't cost much he was a 2nd division French player for a long time and signed for a ligue 1 team last year but doesn't seem to have played much

Neither are guys from Dundee....
Kamara has been really decent but thats hardly an excuse to now sign a lot of players from low level clubs. He came from Arsenal originally.

Not that Edmundson is a bad player or whatever, I know nothing about him. Just saying. :D

I'm making the point that gone are the days of us signing 'stars'. We need to mould players into stars and Kamara has taken to it like a duck to water. I agree its quality over quantity but for every Kamara we have an O'Halloran etc every transfer is risky so I agree with you.

We cant shout down players because of where they are playing. We are raving about G Doc and he is in that same league.

He’s in the league below the one which doc was playing in

Spoke to my relative who seems neutral when it comes to commenting on players
Although he did say the lad can be a bit of a live-wire with some back ground checks required incase he shocks us with his behaviour

Spoke to my colleague who watches Oldham regularly. He says Edmondson is very good. Albeit playing at League Two level.
It’s a gamble at that level. Both Windass and Crooks were in the league 2 team of the year, Windass was decent in patches, no more, while Crooks was absolutely dreadful.

But that’s not say there aren’t bargains to be had, it’s just more of a gamble as you don’t know if they are capable of stepping up.

Same posters saying he’s not good enough because he plays in league 2 are the ones screaming to get Docherty back into the team after being in a relegation scrap in league 1.

Know nowt of the boy, might be good, might be a Kiernan, no idea.

Will there be much resistance? It wouldn’t be a shock, I think he would be a good fit for the current squad. It might swing the balance of power.

Same as £50k players from Dundee ???
How well has just about every other signing we've made from the English lower leagues panned out? The Championship is the most overhyped league in the world, the standard is no better than the SPL and the players more often than not are inconsistent and incapable of producing the goods week in, week out for a team like Rangers. The fact that this guy has made it to the age of 21, went unnoticed by any PL team and is available for £450k should be a warning. FFS they have Joe Worrall rated at about £10m down there.

What about Tav rated at less than £450k in league 1 and was older than 21 when we picked him up?

It’s more of a gamble at that level, absolutely it is but there are definitely bargains to be had as well.

This kind of thinking is so silly.

You get stung for a certain type of player(or from a certain league) and EVERY player is apparently like that.
For every O'Halloran there might be a Novo or a Kamara.

For every Barasic there might be a Katic. For every Windass there might be a Tavernier.

Glen Kamara, 2 years ago when he was 21, was on loan at Colchester where he only played 4 games in the full season. By that logic, he shouldn't be good enough to play for us now.

I have no idea how good this guy is, I've never seen him play. But dismissing him because he plays for Oldham is just stupid.
