There’s a difference between thinking he might go and wanting him to.  If United got an offer of, say £300k, would Ogren turn that down?

I reckon Robson wouldn’t have went for much more than that.

Right now id not sell Edwards unless its daft money, which won't happen.

Hes worth more to us playing than a few hundred K imo. But, obviously, I'm not Ogren so I don't know. But money talks and we have young centre halfs waiting in the wings. 

I doubt the scenario will arise anyway.

More likely to sell Kerr Smith. After all United were trying to punt the lad earlier this season. Only problem for United is he doesn’t want to go.

I think the rumour about Kerr Smith being touted out to any club who'd pay out was just that, a story put around to cast doubt on the direction of the club under Ogren, Asghar and Courts (especially Asghar).

Well yeah, that’s how forums work.

But a signing target for who? The Old Firm won’t be after him. No other Scottish club are really in the habit of wasting money throwing cash to sign other SPFL players. Abroad? Doubtful.

Down South? Well, given he was released by League One Blackpool to come here and it was a common thought that we’d simply release him in the summer to reunite with Micky at League Two Tranmere, I’m struggling to think of a viable side who’d think him worth the money we’d be wanting to let him go.

 

Hibs !

Had United stopped their PPV service?

No but ST holders were no longer getting it for free. 

As far as I can interpret, they misconstrued the restrictions placed upon clubs playing at 3pm on a Saturday. Whatever, it is a positive step from Tannadice,

Ryan Gauld now the highest paid Scottish player in MLS overtaking Johnny Russell.  £27k a week - not to be sniffed at!

If Beerschot gets relegated Lawrence Shankland will end up in a right Mickey Mouse league.  The Belgian second tier looks like our First Division.

Beerschot are rock bottom with 2 points from 11 games.  I reckon he’d fit in well with Tam’s style of play.

Agree but unlikely to happen. I wonder if he has a clause in his contract to cover that situation.

Aye. Demanding an emergency loan to Hearts or Hibs.

However he'd actually do very well with us as Granny said.

Possible that he'll finish up at Sheffield United at the end of this season.

Can’t see him going to an English Championship club tbh.  He’s scored zero goals this season so far.

I reckon he’s going to have to come back at Scottish Premiership level (at best) to re-establish himself, maybe on a loan deal.   Mickey Mellon fucked him with his anti-football.

Only suggesting Sheffield United as they are a struggling Championship club with the same owners as Beerschot, which was a very odd move in the first place. But that might depend on his Belgian side being relegated, which looks likely right now, and Lawrence Shankland himself showing up relatively well over the season. 

He's only been given one full 90 minutes there this season, and played well albeit mostly playing on the right side, deeper than he would normally be used to, until he was shifted up front later in that match.

He is not getting the chance to show what he can do, whether that’s a result of being played out of position or playing in a shite team or a combination of both.  If he can’t show what he’s capable of he’s not going to get a chance at Sheffield United imo regardless of how much they’re struggling.

Fwiw I also think he’s a confidence player, that showed last season.  His confidence will be at rock bottom just now and he will need the right sort of move, even if it’s a loan move, to get his form back AND rebuild his confidence.

I think he’s a great talent and Covid/Mellon/poor move has screwed him up and I’d love to see him back on course.
