He played for their 20s with James Keatings

So he did.  I see Crusaders and Larne were after him as well so I wonder if we transfer-listed him.

Obviously, a different era but he's up there with one of the worst I've ever seen play in the second tier when he was with Dumbarton - loved chucking things into his net whenever I seemed to watch him. Remarkable how a 'keeper can go from being so consistent to that state.

I alluded to this in one of my previous posts on here, but Mark Brown was brilliant for us.  In terms of shot stopping he was excellent and he played a ridiculous amount of consecutive games for us (175 or something).  We sold him to Celtic (with many thinking he'd become number 1 after Boruc left) but he barely got a game and never rekindled the form he had with us at the numerous clubs he was at afterwards. 

He wouldn't have been able to save a miss-hit Panenka if he stood still but other than that, for us, an outstanding keeper.

Did I fall asleep for 2 years?  I just checked and Mark Brown played for County?  Totally don't remember that.

Assuming we don’t lose anymore players by my count we need maybe another central midfielder, a winger and a striker, maybe two. As things stand we’re pretty covered defensively and we certainly don’t need another keeper.

Possibly 2 centre mids, a winger absolutely. Can’t see us getting another striker if we are playing one up top, though is white and keatings are being played as a pair I agree.

We are covered defensively but I’m not convinced about the quality we have. McKay is garbage and McHattie hasn’t covered himself in glory (which makes it more surprising we offered him a deal). We need more at the back but I don’t think we will be doing any business back there.

He battled with Fraser to be our #1 for a time. He was alright, would not leave his line to catch a corner or free kick if you paid him and from memory his kicking wasn't great. Where Fraser was decent, Brown wasn't and vice versa.

I think Mark Brown is one of those players who was excellent for one club and then didn't really reach those heights with any other.

I've always thought of Keatings as more an attacking midfielder.  I'd still like to see one more striker coming in regardless.

The move to Celtic bench kinda stopped everything. He never really found his feet at another other

Moving to Celtic or Rangers stops careers dead in their tracks 9 times out of 10.  You'd think players would learn, but they see the pound signs and sign instantly.  Fair dos but it rarely works out.

Christie has done all right so far at Celtic, his facial injuries  he suffered in the cup semi has put his game on hold for the time being, and Hayes is seems to be getting regular games these days under Lennon.

I miss the days where we would sign unknown English guys without wiki pages like Jason Oswell and Harry Hooman.

Players will still be in Ibiza partying with Wayne Lineker so I doubt we'll see any movement for a few weeks yet.  It's nice knowing we have OFW's wage to use on a player or two (probably with some still left over to pay some bills).

We still have the nucleus of a squad that can finish best of the rest, I've already accepted United will buy the league.  We need them gotten to fuck in May next year.

My favourite keeper was Anotonio Reguero, closely followed by Dean Brill but if ya wanna go old school there was no bigger character than Jim Calder. Some boy

I don’t think Hooman ever actually put pen to paper. Oswell looked decent that pre-season (I remember him scoring a cracker against Coventry) but never got much of a chance.

Didn't Hooman sign, get injured then get released before playing a game?
