Why punt fit players for one that is crocked? Doesn't make sense, our squad is thin enough as it is! From what i've seen and read, McCardle has been one of the better performers in recent weeks when he's been played in his position at CB. I don't want him to go.
I'm trying not to get lost in sentiment, as I said, loved him when he was here the first time round, but I really don't know if we can afford him as a player. No doubting he has a lot to offer when fit and I hope it works out. It's just a huge risk when pennies are as tight as they are already.
To be fair I may be letting 2011 cloud my judgement on that one. He can't be on much of a wage and so long as he's not RB he seems ok.
Mawene on the other hand is gash. What's the use of a "fit" player who's decision making is hopeless and is generally a bombscare. Same age as Anderson and surely not earning far, if any, less than Anderson.
And has no one noticed that 73 year old David Weir has today, according to BBC, "left rangers to continue his career in England."
Are people seriously suggesting that bell end in his 40s was capable, but Anderson won't ever be again??
If people won't at least give Anderson the benefit of the doubt, then who exactly would you?
He'll not be as good as he was for such prolonged periods as he was, but even with no knees at all I can't see how he could possibly make us weaker than we have been since he left.
Mawene out, Ando with Considine, McArdle and 2x loan/youth CBs. That still means all of arnie's (and I fear sadly ozzie's too) wages are there for FBs.
Don't need to spend on midfielders as a priority, unless Folly's dead and Grimmer's gone. Although a left winger would be nice.
Fallon and Mackie (and probably Paton too?) out for a stiker to go with Crespo, chalalalalalali...
Job's a goodun.
Sigma are getting fucking done in 2013
