In courier today dismissing he`s going to retire from playing. McPake maybe got him lined up for pars would make a good captain too.

Worth a punt if he`s got another year in him. Liked what I saw of him at Dundee. Not content with passing backwards and sideways, which has irked us all recently, and still happy to get wired in. Would be a gamble but aren`t all signings?

A goal or two from the half way line would be nice. With a wind like today behind him he could chip it in from his own 18 yard box!
What was that famous one anyway?

Could be a decent player coach if he has a year left in him and doesn’t want paid too handsomely. Gamble.

Looks completely out of shape. Pretty immobile. Still has all the touches and a great shot but he`s just not able to put a shift in.

"Looks completely out of shape. Pretty immobile. Still has all the touches and a great shot but he`s just not able to put a shift in."

Couldn`t disagree more. I`m not saying we go out and sign him, he may actually have no interest in joining, but it gets my goat when players with a particular body shape get labelled " out of shape" as you put it.

There`s no doubt he had a hard paper round but he`s looked after himself pretty well and will likely still be fit enough to do a job in league 1. I honestly wish that I was as fat as Charlie Adam.

Good post. I remember Nipper Thomson getting comment after comment about his condition even at the time when he was putting in performances that we can only dream about right now.

Some of the comments here …

Is it a wonder why some players don’t want to sign/resign for the club…

I don’t think CA will lose any sleep over what a few .net Posters have to say

On the theme of a player`s appearance, I remember one slightly fat and balding team mate who was an excellent mid fielder and I heard a fan say to his pal. I bet he was some player when he was young. He was only 25.

His goal the next week was as good as that assist was funny.

Surely we can’t have dorrans and Adam, if we could punt dorrans, adam might work though.

He’d certainly loads of assists if we can show horn him into a role behind the strikers and good quality set pieces.

Things will be looking up……..now yogi is gone!

I can remember back in the 60`s at Hampden .. Scottish League v English League
The English winger was a small rotund fellow who got the usual verbal abuse from the Scots fans before the game
He then tore us apart with his speed, ability, and skill .. It was a pleasure to watch but not for us Scots fans
And his name was ? ...... 10-9-8-7-

Maybe Ralph Coates of Burnley and later Spurs. He played in 1967 when Fergie appeared for the Scottish League against England at Hampden and we lost 3-0. Coates was struggling to make the weight and had a bald combover as well, but he was a class act on the ball. Got a few England caps but Ramsey was not keen on his sort.

We could do with some experience to support s younger squad, but not sure Adam + Dorrans is right.

BPP, was it Frannie Lee?

He might have been a little later, mind you, but he was on the "stocky" side. I saw him in his later days with Man City in a game at Anfield. I was in the Kop and all around me the chant was... "Frannie Lee`s a Womble!"

Are you sure? I can`t find a record of Lee playing against the Scottish League.

Coates also played and scored in the 1971 match that the English League won 1-0, and Sammer`s eloquent description of him matches your own. - although I'm not sure he played in the 1967 match (he would have been just 20 at the time.)
