  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.

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

  Cody Cooke
Posted by: turkeydinner - 22-06-2018, 16:18 - Forum: St Mirren - No Replies

Cody Cooke has sealed a “fantastic” move to Scottish Premiership club St Mirren.

The Truro City striker underwent a medical and agreed personal terms on Thursday.

Cooke enjoyed a productive season in the Vanarama National League South, where he scored 13 goals as the White Tigers reached the play-offs.

He becomes the latest National League player to move north of the border and will work under former Everton defender Alan Stubbs.

Cooke took to twitter to thank Truro and their fans and says he is excited about taking the next step in his career.

He said: “I’m over the moon. This is a huge opportunity for me and I want to grab it with both hands.”

Stubbs added: “I’m excited. He has a great work ethic and we will help him to succeed here as much as we possibly can.”

  John Flanagan?
Posted by: 0762 - 22-06-2018, 10:44 - Forum: Rangers - Replies (2)

Signed by Rangers and this is a guy that has been convicted for a criminal assault on his girl friend. Rangers already issuing a 'defensive statement' to somehow justify his signing to the point of condemning his behaviour! IMO players are role models and this offence is also fairly recent. However, by signing him that does not tie in with the statement - no fitting consequent action and an element of hypocrisy very evident in this action - almost as bad as the David Goodwillie case TBH and why is it that footie seems to practise in this way? Also I'll bet Liverpool very happy to be rid of a huge PR problem from their point of view and tying in with reasonably high moral values eh! It just would not happen in many other occupations. The victim forgotten again and all in the name of 'the beautiful game'! Deja vu.

  Lenny banned for another two matches!
Posted by: 0762 - 22-06-2018, 10:34 - Forum: Hibernian - No Replies

His touch line ban confirmed yesterday by the SFA for that 'nasty aeroplane celebration' after being subjected to that toxic sectarian abuse in the ultimate game of last season. Justice? Don't think so after studying the regular sectarian crap coming from Rangers fans through last season and not just against Neil Lennon who had the 'last laugh' and turned it into a piece of banter to 'rub their noses in it'.

  Callum Morris and Keith Watson
Posted by: turkeydinner - 21-06-2018, 23:27 - Forum: Ross County - No Replies

Ross County have signed experienced defenders Callum Morris and Keith Watson as they look to return to the Premiership at the first attempt.

Centre-back Morris, 28, was club captain at fellow Championship side Dunfermline last season after previous stints at Dundee United and Aberdeen.

Watson, also 28, spent the first half of last term on loan at Hartlepool before returning to St Johnstone.

He spent nine years at Dundee United and also had a season at St Mirren.

Brighton have completed the signing of goalkeeper Jason Steele from Sunderland.

The 27-year-old, who was relegated to Sky Bet League One with the Black Cats last season, has signed a three-year deal with the Premier League Seagulls.

https://talksport.com/football/388290/br...on-steele/

Think I`d have rather kept Tim Krul, the once promising keeper was absolutely dire for Sunderland last year
