I think that’s every player that we’ve signed and has played at least 1 game at centre back for us since we released Paul Watson. A truly absolutely fucking disgusting list.

This list needs a PG warning, definite nightmares tonight after reading that!

The only reason Edjenguele looked decent was because he played like Van Dijk in comparison to the CB pairings that would have struggled in the Juniors who we'd been playing for the first half of that fucking grim season.

Think he had a great debut but just declined from there

Yet Hall, McKay and Lemon are still the worst of the lot. Pretty incredible just how spectacularly shite our recruitment has been over the years. It’s almost a talent to be able to keep signing players even worse than has gone before.

I just wonder if McKay beside someone who will talk and keep him concentrating will improve?

Got to admit I would be hard pressed to decide between Holt/Sheerins current ensemble or Hartleys duds, the only thing that gives Hartleys duds any leeway was the fact we were a league above than present shite but a better league shite

You said that about Hall. Mckay's been an absolute donkey wherever he's been. He's a lost cause.

Correct, he’s now appeared for two teams…the three team limit was a one off.

I'm sure there is an appeal case you can take to the associated body who can over rule this. The case usually has to prove the said player won't be involved in match day squads.

Wiki say he's got 10 in 23, BBC say he's got 5 in 17.

5/19 this season

Nah he’s every bit as bad as Hall potentially even worse. At 28 and played over 200 games he’s never going to improve. It’s his lack of intelligence more than anything else that infuriates me.

Just for a bit of fun given the novelty of Kabia's double on Saturday, I went trawling on bettermeddle to see how many Bairns players I could find who got 2 (or more) goals on their League debut.  So far I've found four - a couple are more recent than Id imagined.  There might easily be others I've missed 

B Hall (!) https://bettermeddle.org.uk/archive/match.php?season=2020&id=322&type=1 but that was v Forfar so didnt count

L Longridge (2nd spell) https://bettermeddle.org.uk/archive/match.php?season=2018&id=319&type=1 when we papped DUFC 6-1

M Higdon https://bettermeddle.org.uk/archive/match.php?season=2008&id=301&type=1  opening day thrashing of Gretna at Fir Park

"Half Chance" Charlie Lytwyn went one better with a league debut hatrick v Ayr Utd in 1985 https://bettermeddle.org.uk/archive/match.php?season=1986&id=202&type=1

Once you go pre transfer window of course a player could have made their debut any old time, maybe some other older Bairns will remember debut doubles or hatricks.

It would be a painful watch, so much so I don't know if it would be comedy value or x rated

Could have saved yourself some time

You can’t put a positive spin on Brad McKay.
