Just about every team in our league are still looking for more signings , yet looking at Allan’s comments it looks like no one has gone for him , is there are a reason behind this that we are not aware of ?

I’d imagine it’s a combination of concern over wages, fitness, health concerns and managers thinking he might be past it.

I’d take him in a heartbeat though. He’d solve a lot of our issues but we’d still need a striker to put all the chances away that he’ll create.

He has a heart defect and diabetes, had to take a decent period out the game. Says he's fit and has had advice from three cardiologists. 

I am guessing he is based in Edinburgh but played for Inverness for a spell.

Surely he would want full-time at least. There must be some reason no one’s snapped him up. If the cost of insurance is the reason then surely that would’ve put clubs off Eriksen. Depends what it covers but surely their wages and commercial opportunities would play a part at that level.

I assume having international caps etc makes a difference.

Maybe we should sign a couple of EU based players for next season and if we start the process now then we MIGHT just get them in on time for the start of the 23-24 season !!!

In this case it is very much a political decision that has caused our transfer to be delayed in fairness.

Or short-sightedness on behalf of the recruitment team. Mind in football manager when you used to get knocked back for a work permit for a player?

Aye then have to wait a year or that to re-submit it!  f**k that.

The club will have looked at the timescales quoted, which iirc is about 15 days for the UK and taken them on good faith. It isn't the clubs fault that the estimated time has been long since passed. It sounds like they have ran with the process and provided everything required in the time frame.

Due to the nature of my job I have to apply for business visas (I appreciate slightly different) for countries all over the world, the experience we have going abroad compared to the experience of colleagues trying to come visit us is usually totally different. The home office seem to be an absolute riot at the best of time, which the club wouldn't have known in hindsight, they can only take in good faith what they read and are told when applying.

Fond memories of filling a team with talented foreign bargains.

Now consigned to history because of some lies on the side of a bus.

He didn't though, because he's not good enough for them. Which is entirely the point. Current internationals of the type generally bought by the OF will get done quickly because a work permit is granted by right. For lower level players they are in the same boat as Pavel from Poland who wants to come work in the local abattoir and will have to take the same process route.
