Who is Jimmy mccann haha
ID10 posted last night that he’s got a couple of transfers right (obvious ones, at that). The account was up all night tweeting how great he is and how he knows this deal will take place. After a good night’s sleep he’s changed his tune...

No idea who the %^*& Jimmy McCann is, but he's got a cu*t of a name.
He's a fake 'ITK' account who posts a lot of transfer rumours (mostly obvious ones) and deletes/backtracks whenever he gets one wrong, but retweets and highlights the ones he gets right & a lot of people seem to be falling for him.

Very easy to tell when someone's making it up as they go along, but this guy seems to be having far too many people fall for his nonsense.

I’ve heard the same but as you say it was only hearsay and I have no decent source on it so didn’t want to speculate.

Katic will go for big money or be with us for a long time if his development continues the way it’s going.

I also have 100% faith in the management team so if they think we need a first pick CB and Katic doesn’t play as much then so be it,

Think they planned a lot more rotation last Season but McAuley never worked out how they planned.
I’m not a great fan of rotating defenders. More than anyone else they really need to know each others’ game and be able to anticipate what position they will be in. Regular game time really helps. I’d like to see a clear first choice goalkeeper and CBs with someone very capable to step in when needed.

I agree it’s not ideal but you could have them all playing 30+ games a season .

The manager will rotate as he did it all season till he realised the squad wasn’t good enough.

He’s the best crosser of a ball in our squad , The game at Motherwell away when he first came In he looked like a 10 million pound player, Let’s give the guy 2-3 more months to see if he’s settled any better as it’s a not an ability issue.
I’m all for giving players time mate
N yes he does put good balls in the box but for me mate he strolls around in 3rd gear he needs to up it n I seriously don’t think he’s got the fire in his belly to do it.

I thought he had been decent tbf, I don’t follow him but scan of his account seems legit

Obviously this one is wrong

As I asked last night what folk thought of him

Katic's dad was unwell.

Think stevie G said yesterday it was a permanent signing we were looking at bro.
Interesting. It's just very unusual for nothing to leak when the transfer appears to be this imminent. Normally in the selling clubs interest to flush out any potential buyers and maximise their value. Or, if a free agent, flush out any potential employers and maximise your wage.

Some players take longer to settle than others, Some players also thrive on confidence.

I would happily give him a decent run till Christmas and see how he gets on , Problem is he seems also to be very injury prone and that’s not helped his start with us .

As you say though it’s all about attitude and he may never have it .

What I find strange regarding Barisic, is that the main argument most of his supporters have is "He's a regular for Croatia." Even though at best he's been a dissapointment for us so far (last night excepted). I wonder how many of these people would have stuck up for Bruno Alves with the same defence, that he was a regular for Portugal (FWIW I thought that Alves did ok and took a lot of flack for nothing).
I've no knowledge of Croatian football in the slightest but could it be that Croatia are struggling in that position, and that's why he's a regular despite being a dissapointment for us?

Who cares about transfer fees? We’ve had a great window so far.
Too true, we have shown in the past 3 windows that a quality squad can be put together for very little outlay. For less than £9m paid in transfer fees we have virtual rebuilt our entire first team squad.

The Bosman market has some fantastic quality. Granted because there is no transfer fee involved the player will normally demand a bigger salary but with careful anslysis we have shown that, for clubs like ours, where transfers of £10m and above are unthinkable, Bosmans are the way to go.

Right lads, have spent good part of the morning trawling the net for any hint of our new signing but nothing doing. I'm like anexpectant father, does ayone have a clue, even a hint from one of our ITK guys?

Some players are better internationals than club players and vice versa this has always been the case.

Hopefully he settles and pushes on from here ,

The manager seems to be happy with his attitude and has already binned several others who he’s not been happy with so that must be a positive.

There's a prominent member on here who freely admits to ONLY watching Rangers games when it comes to Football yet has a very vocal opinion on our potential signing targets.

If you know nothing say nothing.

Perhaps Gerrard putting it out there re imminent signing to force someone's hand on agreeing a deal.

Perfectly possible mate, main point is that the fact that he gets a game for them seems to be the first line of defence. Yet Alves who contributed more in his only season with us got quite a bit of stick without anyone rushing to point out that he was away with Portugal regularly and had almost 100 caps.

Wasn’t having a dig at you in any way mate. Truth is I don’t think anyone really knows what’s happening. Which makes a change!

We do need another striker, regardless if Morelos stays or not.

Centre back as Goldson needs cover too.

I still feel quality out wide right is something we are lacking
Totally agree we need another striker but a lot will depend on Lafferty leaving as well.

Oh I know bud I didn’t take it as such

I merely mentioned him as had been pointed out to me but seems many say he’s a crank who deletes etc

I don’t think anyone has a whiff of anything which is interesting & also makes me wonder if it’s someone club has previously dismissed

Boys said Gerrard said that Deli was of interest few weeks ago & it never got past informal chat & definitely not him, which makes me think maybe leaked now to keep people Away from real target

Excited to see who it is, personally I hope it’s not Skrtel or James Lawrence who has been mentioned But we will see
