I can't think of a bigger signing we've made in my lifetime. 

 

It's a risk and I'm not convinced it will pay off but if it does, the upside is absolutely massive.

Wonder if you made any enquiries about Griffiths, with Rab knowing him, that could've been a good fit. IMO. He's in Australian 3rd tier now seemingly.

I'm guessing that because Rab knows him, pretty much explains why we're hopefully going no where near him.

Amazing signing.

Not sure I agree totally with the criticism of Rooney, obviously he’s getting on a bit and his best days are behind him but he’s got a fantastic pedigree and could possibly still do a decent job playing alongside Shanks, not instead of.

I know it was more than ten years ago but Rooney's game for ICT was never about pace - he was never especially quick but he's one of the best natural finishers we've ever had.  If he can get fit, even given his age, I think off the bench he could still be very dangerous.

It’s exactly that.

It should also put an end to the ‘plucky Arbroath’ stuff… you’re clearly in a position to take the financial risk, where maybe half the clubs in the league are not.

For me, the bottom line is that I hope he stays healthy.

Even given his age makes him sound like he’s ancient, he turned 34 at the end of April and played a lot of games and scored goals at a really good level (relatively speaking in Arbroath terms) last season
