He certainly has height, speed, strength and compusure. Hopefully he'll adapt to the Scottish game.

National League isnít exactly hands-off play, so hopefully very little adjustment necessary. JMcG seems to reckon heís a ďpresenceĒ to upset the opponents backline...time will tell. Seems well spoken and eager.

Watched the highlight reel, well he is good and physical, doesn't shy out of a challenge and two footed but he does need to quicken his foot speed and control which is something John & Paul can work on and I'm sure the full time training will benefit him. Potentially exciting especially with two wing back bombing down the wings and knocking balls into him.

Obviously these are the Ďbest bitsí and tough to gauge level of opposition but he seems to have great control, decent awareness, composure and knows where the goal is. Excited to see him in action...

Do you no' remember the time when Cruyff.......ah, sorry!

As long as our lad is a twinkle toes and no' a clogger I'm sure he'll be Edam fine striker. In fact he could be a big cheese in the scoring charts. Embarassed Embarassed

Ahh I see your confusion, most of the strikers we've had would have looked more at home at Crufts Idea

Just remembered that we had a van Driver up front when we were part time back in the late 1980's.
His first name might have been Dwight, if I recall Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed

Just read the article in today's Sunday Mail called the Big Interview featuring Manny.
A very interesting story of perseverance to try to make it in professional football after numerous setbacks from his teenage days in the Netherlands up to where he is now.
