I still think Sammut would have been a not bad signing, was a young boy up here for experience but hadn't the professional midfielder to help and talk him through the game. You just need to look back on the influence Latapy had with the likes of Stokes etc.

Wish I had your optimism, I think he’s just absolutely shite.

If it’s the one I’m thinking of he’s 5 ft 8” or 9” ?
He will be a starter for us for sure. I’d be happy with that if we signed him.
He's a tidy enough player but had Stephen McGinn pulling the strings next to him when we scooshed the league.

Not sure if he'll be a standout performer in this Falkirk team.

Stokes wasn't absolute shite m8. Slight difference.

Speaking of Stokes see he went AWOL from the Iranian club he signed for and had been forced to go back by FIFA after they lodged a complaint.

If he can stand up he’ll be a standout in our current team.

There’s been a lot of shite on this thread but mentioning Sammut and Stokes in the same post by comparison is definitely up there.

We could have N’Golo Kante alongside Sammut but that wouldn’t change how utterly shite he is.

I have sympathy with Sammat too and agree that he would have been better being used as a firstly as a sub into a successful team and then building. Can't believe that some folk on here would think a young Chelsea graduate and captain at that would be so poor and I do not believe for one minute Chelsea thought they were loaning a player to a team that were bottom of the Scottish championship, this move probably set the lad backwards and done more bad than good for the parent club. The lad would have benefited from an old head like Latapy who would have taken through games offering guidance and support.

Never mind, we may see him soon on MOTD in a couple of years time. I hope we keep the lad to the end of the season and use him the was he should have been used. Probably Irving came into the same category but he's away now. Too much to expect from young lads playing men's football.

 

Happy new year lads

Out of interest what have you seen to suggest he would be decent in a winning team? Poor passer, weak as f**k, can’t match a runner, doesn’t get forward at all. Could go on all day.

I’ll be also happy to have a charity bet that I’ll never see him on MOTD playing for any premier league team.

Sadly, I agree. I could see him ending up at something like Preston for a season, become marginalised ther, and then on to a Fleetwood or some such, and then get a mention of his past on a FA Cup MOTD in the 3rd round where whoever he is playing for has a plum tie against Arsenal or Spurs. I certainly saw nothing that says there’s Andy Robertson levels of hidden talent just waiting to be unleashed onto the footballing world.

Ryan Flynn can f**k off, one of the reasons we are in this division is cause he is shite. Couldn't even score into an open goal in Killie to keep us up.

He may have a future as a presenter, this is true. The next Dan Walker perhaps.

Wouldn't be asked to play in the 5s team though.

Yeah, Ryan Flynn is the one of the reasons we finished bottom of the premier league. Because he missed a chance to score a goal in a premier league match, he shouldn’t be anywhere near us in the league below. My word.

Come off it, Ryan Flynn would be an absolutely outstanding signing at this level and a real statement of intent from Ray and the board.
