Nisbet v Griffiths rumours?

I am sure I recently read he didn't follow Rantic or Celgers. Although other admins disagree, I thought he had a great half hour for Scotland last night, both attacking, scoring and defending well. He can skip Glasgow and head down south, he will make it in my opinion. Just let us see him in a Hibs shirt for a season, please?
My QPR mate told me ages ago that they were tracking Nisbet. They are desperate to offload Dykes given that he's a huddy and if they manage to get shot of him they'll probs come in for Nisbet. I'll bet Clarke plays Dykes ahead of Nisbet in the Euros.

Dkyes will 100% start for Scotland. Clarke will using him to do all the running for 70 minutes then chuck Nisbet and Adams on when the game generally gets stretched last 20... it’s actually not a bad tactic when you’re the under dog.

The only problem I have with that is that Dykes is absolute gash and a waste of a jersey.

I disagree that he’s a waste of a jersey. He’s useful for closing down defenders and challenging for the inevitable hoofed balls from our defenders.

He’s no skill or finesse, and he’s no likely to score, but that’s not his job. It’s to make space for others who can.

International football requires a different type of approach from club football, which is why someone like Dykes is more useful for his country than his club.

Fair enough, everyone is entitled to their opinion. He wouldn't be getting a game though if it was up to me.

Don't get me wrong, if there was a better option he wouldn’t be near the team for me either. But I can see why Clarke plays him. Hopefully he goes with either Adams or Nisbet with him.

As I said, a huddy and a waste of a jersey [see tonight's game where he and his strike partner squandered enough chances to win a handful of games].

His strike partner scored the winner. All that matters at this level.

Yep because the team we were playing was rubbish. All those missed chances would cost us in a game against a decent team. It's obviously pointless arguing with you as you've decided that substandard strikers are good enough.

10 men fore more than half the game too, Dykes is rotten, Nissy might have made more difference if given more time too.

After the bids we knocked back in January I doubt there is any truth in this rumour. Leigh can sign for us for a free and I cannot see Celtic paying the going rate for Nisbet, plus Ron won’t allow anyone to go on the cheap.

I’ll pick you up on your last sentence… I’m not accepting of substandard strikers, and haven’t said anything of the like. I’m accepting of the fact that’s all we have available. We’ve got a target man whom I’ve already described as a player with no skill, a guy who has scored a few in the English Premier League, and Kevin Nisbet. That’s it. We don’t have anyone else who can play the target man role, until we do Dykes is the best of some bad options.

There is no such thing as free. You know that Family, in my own time, I know that and 50 years ago every fucker knew that.....even Family

Wonderful @Doc Shrink . Saw them several times, early 70's. In Edinburgh and beyond. Came to the conclusion very early on that Chapman was fucking nuts.

We didnt realise how lucky we were at that time.
It was the done thing for an act to release an album , and do the tour to promote it.
Great times for music lovers.

Saw Led Zepplin and Barclay James Harvest at the Usher Hall the following year! £2 I think.
