Who have Raith Rovers got that’s even anywhere near similar to that, or to Fosu / Corfe / Isiaka? Every signing DC makes like the above and Bakare / Ford just makes me lose faith in him even more, this isn’t how Dick got to where he is today. It’s the exact opposite of how he got here. All of our successful signings have been steady solid lower league players, none of them tearing up trees just good guys and steady footballers. Players you want to keep around the place, our success has been built up with consistency and a strong team spirit built up over time with guys like that. These short term random gambles just reek of desperation, there is absolutely zero stability with any of them, the chances that any of these guys will be here a year from now is extremely low. I would love this guy to be good but on paper this is just up there with the rest of them, 26 years old and 27 games played in the last 6 years. He seems to be a YouTube footballer, extremely skeptical that’ll transfer well into the Scottish Championship… Deri Corfe would be good on the old YouTube I bet…. Acted as a body double for Neymar, great, let’s go sign that boy fae Goal and the lassie from Bend it Like Beckham while we’re at it What did Bakare do wrong? He had one start in his entire time here, in which he looked pretty good (game against Morton near the end of the season). Guy barely had a chance. And yet if you ask some of our fans, he seems to be one of our worst ever signings. You know, Arsene Wenger used to say that he gave foreign signings a year to adapt. Here, its apparently 3 games. What has Isiaka done wrong? And Fosu, who has played plenty of games and looks fine. Corfe hasn't been brilliant so far to be fair, but the way you spin it, everyone who isnt Scottish is apparently a disaster for us. And now you have this guy, who was one of those racially abused by Beardsley, and was rewarded for coming forward by coincidentally not having his contract extended. He might give us something different, he might not be a success, but no doubt you've made your mind up before he even gets near a football pitch. And why don't you have a look at the Raith thread. They've taken a punt on a Faeroese striker, seemingly as there are no goalscorers in the Scottish league (sound familiar?). He's barely arrived, and already their fans are sceptical. 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
