  Paul Paton
Posted by: turkeydinner - Yesterday, 16:16 - Forum: Falkirk - No Replies

Midfielder Paul Paton has moved back to Scotland after an unsuccessful spell at Plymouth Argyle ended up in his release from the club.

Derek Adams signed the 31-year-old in March as injures began stacking up for the Pilgrims.

But Paton made just one start and two substitute appearances for the side, with his start ending in injury after 53 minute

That kept the former Dundee United and St Johnstone man from making another appearance for the side.

Falkirk manager Paul Hartley said of the deal: "I am really pleased to welcome Paul to the club.

"He is a player that will add great experience and leadership to the group and one that I feel can add real quality to the squad.

  Belgium on fire! 5-2 v Tunisia
Posted by: 0762 - Yesterday, 16:06 - Forum: World Cup 2018 - Replies (2)

Quali job done by Hazard and co and an improved GD in a very good game to watch. This score line was absolutely flattering for Tunisia as it could easily have been 7-2 or 8-2 and Batshuayi really should've taken the match ball home after scoring a second half 'hat trick' in about 15 mins. God help any side that faces Belgium if this guy is fully fit with that kinda attacking midfield service behind him! Lukaku again scoring a 'brace' but should've scored more although he's the 1st player to score two consecutive 'braces' of WC goals since Maradona did it in '86. Great stuff and the 'do minimum' quali target already attained!!

  Aaron Lennox
Posted by: turkeydinner - Yesterday, 14:41 - Forum: Partick Thistle - No Replies

Partick Thistle can today confirm that goalkeeper, Aaron Lennox, has joined the club on a one year deal, subject to international clearance.

The Australian ‘keeper makes the move to Maryhill having left Raith Rovers where he spent a season following a spell on loan at Starks Park in the second half of the 2016/17 campaign.

The 6 foot 3 ‘stopper started his senior career with Queens Park Rangers before joining Hayes & Yeading United and then Aberdeen. He wasn’t able to make the breakthrough at Pittodrie, appearing just once but after a short loan spell at Raith Rovers, he made the permanent switch to Stark’ Park last summer.

  Stuart Armstrong to Southampton!?
Posted by: 0762 - 22-06-2018, 23:24 - Forum: Celtic - No Replies

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/44584238
He has had a good innings with Celtic since leaving Dundee United and this looks like another piece of 'good business' by the Hoops/Lawwell with more money in the bank and Stuart Armstrong keen to 'take up a new challenge' in a top league. But who is coming 'into the fold' and who is Rodgers looking at to strengthen his player squad?

  Max Clark joins Vitesse Arnhem
Posted by: turkeydinner - 22-06-2018, 18:45 - Forum: Hull - No Replies

Max Clark's move to Vitesse Arnhem has now been confirmed with the Hull City graduate moving to Holland on a three-year deal.

The 22-year-old, described by his new club as a left-back, rejected a contract offer from the Tigers to make a fresh start and joins up with former City boss Leonid Slutsky.

Vitesse have had to pay in the region of £400,000 to City for Clark on a fixed tariff set by FIFA, as the academy graduate's eight-year association with his hometown club officially ends.

Speaking on the Vitesse website, Clark said; "I am looking forward to working in the Netherlands. The ambitions and way of playing sound promising. In addition, I have worked very well with head coach Leonid Slutskiy before."

  Brazil 2 Costa Rica 0 - 6 mins of Brazilian magic!
Posted by: 0762 - 22-06-2018, 18:01 - Forum: World Cup 2018 - No Replies

The 'boys from Brazil' certainly 'left it late' but deservedly won through in the end. I wish Neymar would stop being a prima donna as regularly as he does but that is clearly part of his footie persona, the opposite of that great Brazilian legend Pele! I'm wondering if the Brazilian manager has solved one issue up front with the intro of Firmino - seemed to add another dimension to their effectiveness 'up front'. Well done!

  Jeff King
Posted by: turkeydinner - 22-06-2018, 17:38 - Forum: St Mirren - No Replies

St Mirren have completed the signing of winger Jeff King on a free transfer.

The 22-year-old has been available since being released by Bolton earlier in the summer and has been snapped up by Buddies boss Alan Stubbs.

King made just one appearance in the Sky Bet Championship last season, but also featured in the Carabao Cup and the FA Cup before moving on loan to FC United of Manchester.

“I’d heard about signing for the club a couple of weeks ago but I was on holiday so it’s been frustrating,” King told the club website.

“But I’m buzzing to get it over the line. I’m definitely looking forward to it.

“I had other options on the table, but St Mirren being a big club enticed me and Alan Stubbs being in charge.”

Stubbs added: “It’s been going on for a couple of weeks. He was one of the first ones we had enquired about. It’s another one on board and I’m really happy with it.”

King is the third player to sign on with the club after Josh Heaton and Cody Cooke were confirmed as the Buddies’ first two signings since achieving promotion to the Ladbrokes Premiership.

Heaton, a 21-year-old defender, became the club’s most expensive signing for 25 years – believed to be around £75,000 – after arriving from Darlington, while Cooke joined from Truro. Both players came through the V9 Academy set up by Jamie Vardy.

On the signing of Heaton, who was linked with moves to the Championship in England, Stubbs commented: “It’s a sign of intent and I’d like to thank the board for putting their trust in me.

“You only have to look at the clubs who were wanting to get Josh and to have got him it’s quite a coup.”

Chief executive Tony Fitzpatrick added: “It’s a significant outlay and represents our commitment to Alan and our supporters as we try to build a side that will be competitive in the Premiership.”

  Mark van Bommel
Posted by: turkeydinner - 22-06-2018, 16:40 - Forum: Other European Football - Replies (1)

Fenerbahce have announced that Phillip Cocu has been appointed as the club's new boss on a three-year contract.

Cocu led PSV to the Eredivisie title last season, but the former Netherlands international has decided to bring to an end his five-year spell with the Dutch club.

The arrival of Cocu could lead to the signing of Chelsea midfielder Marco van Ginkel after the 47-year-old worked with the playmaker at PSV during the most recent campaign.

Cocu's move to Fenerbahce has resulted in PSV replacing him with Mark van Bommel, who had two spells with the club during his playing career.

Van Bommel is currently acting as assistant to Bert van Marwijk with Australia and will begin his new role after the Socceroos' participation at the World Cup comes to an end.

https://www.sportsmole.co.uk/football/ps...28924.html

Thought Cocu would leave for a bigger league but guess Fenerbache will still continue his development

Very glad Van Bommel being given a major job, Dutch national team seems to have used same few managers last thirty years and new stock needs to happen
