Why is no one willing to take a punt on him though?

Was interviewed a few weeks ago and he claimed he was being too fussy himself. Also sure he said he'd only had one offer from scotland(fiver each way says Rangers or Dundee). It's not just a case of us taking a punt on him, but him taking a punt on us too.

Because he's an injury prone luxury player who's wage demands are higher than his worth. The last possible thing we need is yet another paceless, positionless forward who'll have as many bad games as he does good. You can believe all his shite about being "fussy" if you want, simple fact is he's still without a club and we're almost in October, a player of his reputation wouldn't be in that position if there wasn't something wrong

Random guy How do you know his wage demands are too high?? Is that fact or just you speculating? I am sure if you searched back you would find details from Motherwell which seemed to suggest that he was not a high earner.

 

For a start Motherwell never even paid his wages, a member of the board paid it out his own pockets. Motherwell released him as he was constantly injured and was shite for the vast majority of the season, and the board member didn't think he was getting value for money meaning the club would have to take on the wage, which they didn't want to do. Regardless of what he wanted it would be too much, as he wouldn't offer enough.

 

All this is from paper reports from the club and player.

Constantly injured? He played 30 games last season so he can't have been injured that often.

 

He had three spells out with injuries, almost exactly at the first quarter of the season, halfway through and then at the third quarter mark. He only completed the 90 minutes six times.

 

Regardless of all this I don't think he's what we need just now, would happily be proven wrong

Yes he was. He was majority released because of his wage. it wasn't justifiable.

I may be a bit simple but when I was made redundant in the 90s I took jobs that were paying less just to get back in job market. (And better than benefits.). Why would a footballer not sign a short term contract just to get back in shop window? Some money is better than no money!
