"The ICT Thread - The Championship Years"


Recommended Posts

Aye Harper hasn’t really improved as he was expected to when he broke through in the Covid season. He’s definitely stagnated. As mentioned above I think this season is his last chance.

Hibs reportedly keen to punt Danny Mckay out on loan - any chance we might pursue that? I know nothing about the guy's background but does he have family or that local which might help influence?

After several weeks of rumors, the New York Red Bulls finally confirmed the signing of Cameron Harper. The 19-year-old was acquired for an undisclosed fee and will notably join the club on a permanent basis in an offseason when the Red Bulls have earned attention for a high ratio of loan signings.

Yeah…..that’s not our one. That’s the Celtic one. Do you work for the Daily Record?

When asked in January by Maloney if he wanted to come back here on loan, he apparently laughed at him, so he was punted to Killie.

Was a good enough option to get him his 'big' move though. Hopefully not a case of getting an ego thinking he's 'billy big baws' and better than ICT as an option (if that was the case he'd be doing better at the level he is), or is there other behind the scenes issues with people or structure of the club.

Not for me. Similar player to Samuels.

Aye Harper has consolidated. This season is his great opportunity.

Remember that part of the official line about releasing Tremarco was because they had such faith about Harper's ability to slip into his position effectively.  It should've probably been taken with a big pinch of salt but that's what they said.  He's looked alright on the left wing but by and large he's been absolutely rubbish at left-back.  Considering he was kept out most of last season by a centre-back in his position and there's already a youth prospect looking better than him in there you'd think his days are numbered unless he makes big strides this season.

Tremarco was expensively done and don't be fooled by spin.

I like to accentuate the positive but that aside, I think we are in agreement.

How on earth are people judging one young lad who has had a game vs Clach in a senior strip and a decent U18 season against someone who is developing into a first team left back position.  That’s utterly insane. It is generally accepted it takes more time for defenders to develop to the adult game. Harper was given a roasting in a couple of pre season games last season and never got back in. He can only be 20? To rubbish such a talent that the club has nurtured at length is just ridiculous.
