Afternoon All

We are still being linked with Jordan Larsson ?.

Let's assume it's true and we sign him.
Would we be signing him coz of his name or for his talent?

I don't think Ange is the type to bring in players because of the name.
If Lawwell Snr was still around then we probably would but I honestly can't see it happening.

Brian the times I have seen Jordan play which in truth is only a handful of times, he has looked like he has something but I don’t expect him to hit the heights of his dad, but he is only 25 and still has time on his side with his best years still ahead of him so I could be proven wrong. I don’t think Ange does sentiment in the sense he would be interested just because of his name or who his dad is (we are not sevco) Ange would want him to be able to offer something to the team and squad, aswell as be able to play the way we now play. On a free transfer I’d take a punt as he will offer far more than Ajeti and I feel he would be far more committed to the cause than Ajeti due to wanting to prove himself to the faithful.

Larsson Jnr can play and won't be short of offers especially given he's on a free transfer.

I agree with Jonbhoy in that Ange doesn't do sentiment when it comes to signing players.

I'm hoping Johnny Kenny continues his form in the remaining 5 pre season games and gets the nod as 3rd striker.

As for Jordan, we could well come up against him in a CL game before too long.

Free transfer good player what's not to like.

His record is decent and but for putin he'd be commanding a hefty fee.

Why are so many hoping Johnny Kenny becomes out 3rd striker? If that happens then we have fallen back 2 years and complacency has set in. An injury to kyogo or GG then Kenny potentially comes on in a big game after 65mins. Is that what we really want. Yes I'm all for promoting and giving the kids a chance but we NEED 3 strikers competing for 1 place. Not 2 strikers with a league of Ireland kid as next option. Should we not have signed Hartson when we had Sutton and Larrson? There will be times when both kyogo and GG are out. Complacency is our biggest downfall.

{Ed007's Note - And if Kyogo and Giakoumakis don't get injured at the same time, how much game time are you offering any potential signing? You can't build a squad on ifs and buts, you need two quality players for every position then after that you should be looking at youth or veterans to cover, preferably youth for the good of the Club.
When we had Larsson, Sutton and Hartson we played with 2 up top, so you needed 3/4 strikers in your squad - Sutton also played in midfield and even CB - we only play with one striker now so only really need 3.}

I think Celtic are covered in the forward areas and we can assess the situation in January.
Young Larsson would be a bonus.

{Ed007's Note - ??

I agree 2 players for every position but for me striker position needs 3 first team ready strikers to compete. if Kenny is good enough he can become one of the 3 in a season or 2. Nowhere near ready now. Strikers are most substituted and it's all about confidence and who's on fire.

{Ed007's Note - So we turn round to Baby Larsson and say Kyogo/Gio will be rotating but IF one of them are injured or IF one of them lose form you'll make the bench. I can't see him swimming the north sea for that.
I'm not arguing with you Kipper mate and I'd be delighted if we did sign Baby Larsson but I've said all along I didn't think it would happen and just explaining why, I also think the shadow of his dad would be over him constantly and he would become known more as being Henrik Larsson's son rather than Jordan Larsson, everything would be constantly compared to his dad in the media and between fans on forums and social media - oh he's not as quick as his dad, his dad would've scored that etc.}

Not to put too much pressure on the lad but Kenny looked good and would be an ideal 3rd choice striker as he's still young and developing and game time will be limited due to the quality in front of him. We moan we never give youth a chance. We aren't going to sign a top quality striker for our 3rd choice striker so why not promote Kenny up the the first team it may turn out to be shrewd move. The same goes with Lawal too in defence.

The tempo at which Ange wants to play means he could get 30 minutes every game. And from there it’s up to him to prove he should start. Two strikers isn’t enough.
