Jon Gallagher signs on loan

Recommended Posts

An absolute nothing signing on the face of it. 

 

 

So... moving on...

Imagine actually thinking that.

Boys played about 40 competitive games for an MLS Second team and 80 college games which are on par with Sunday League.

Hope he’ll be good, imagine he’ll be shite.

I wouldn’t write off lower league American Football completely. The lower leagues are pretty decent level here as it’s actually a very popular sport to play, which surprised me back in 2001 when we played some local teams and they were phenomenal. The College teams attract a lot of players from the British Isles too who go over on scholarships as a method of breaking into professional leagues as well as an education

 

Hope he’s good too imagine he’ll take a while to get up to speed though

Come on Pondhopper, make yourself useful.

What's the scoop on this guy?

Rumpus (or whoever it is) is frantically googling his name as I type.

Go soccer!

This seems a very odd signing. The guy is 23 and never played in a professional football match. Sorry but we have signed one decent player in 5 thus far.

"Decent"?

 

"DECENT"?

 

bearing in mind decent means average, who is the 1 average signing?

I have a friend who’s brother plays for a college team over there on a scholarship. The standard is dire.

It OK.

 

It's a'project'

Project - fancy term for taking a punt on the unknown. Dons should be above this.

What division does he play in? The top divisions would be a pretty good standard. Highland league or better. Obviously not the level of spl. But the very top college teams would give our u19/21s a very decent game. To say it’s dire is a bit of a exaggeration. No doubt there would be some diamonds to be found just like there would be in the English conference but would be few and far between.

If he makes more than 5 appearances, I'll be pleasantly surprised.

So we've signed the equivalent of a 23 year old Highland league player then

As all will give him a chance (5 mins) before I decide if he’s shite.

 

Hopefully a surprise but doubt he’ll get much game time

i would take a guess that’s he’s better than tht but no idea if he’s anywhere good enough for our first team. You have players like Mitchel Megginson playing for cove in highland league up until last year who has turned down a number of championship and a prem team to play there. There is players in HL that could play a lot higher standard. Edited by slippers

which we would do if any highland league player had a dad who had a pal that was willing to fire him a few million to the club

I already wrote that in the first few posts.

 

Willing him to get on though so hopefully we are 3 or 4 up on the 11th and can give him a run

He'll get token run outs at best.

A typical McInnes sub with 8-9 mins to go.

The only way he'll get a start is if Logan gets injured.

Did Darren Mackie not play at the same level as this chap?

He did and was totally out of his depth and was sent home...so....worst case scenario he's better than Darren Mackie at least.

I am sure Bobby Clark and Cormack have had an input in this signing and think the lad has talent, whether he can transfer this talent to Scotland is the question to be answered

A sensible post among a lot of assumptions that he is shite.

 

I will wait & see how this goes before writing him off.

There could be any number of other reasons for this loan other than because he's shite.

I think if the reason for it is because he's shite then Cormack will lose a lot of face from it.

 

This could be the start of many experimental loans of players to raise their profiles & give them experience

I don't think they would want to start that experiment off with a shite player tbh

Exactly this.

 

Makes it quite an interesting one to watch but not an immediate pulse quickener like Brysons acquisition.
