    Football League World suggesting Leigh Griffiths, Celtic striker...

    ...is someone we should be seriously considering:

    https://footballleagueworld.co.uk/wh...in-the-summer/

    Scots born with a great goalscoring record but he's new to me. He's 26 and came south of the border between 2011-14 and played just 26 times which doesn't sound promising. Since then, though, he's made 90 appearances for the Bhouys and bagged 61 goals. Suggestion is he'll be moving down the pecking order next season.

    Anyone fancy him?

    Would be a step up for him, but could be worth looking at

    Good goalscoring record but appears to have some off field issues bearing in mind his last 3 manager's have made specific comment about it:

    Scores a lot of goals for Celtic. But I imagine Fred probably would in that Celtic team with no team challenging them.

    I remember he was meant to be some kind of Scottish wonderkid (if such a thing exists) but off-field issues meant he never fulfilled his potential

    Not for me, he got fourteen goals in those twenty six games for Wolves mind, I believe all but one of them came in League One though. I daresay Warnock may view him as one of those players he can get playing for him in a way other bosses couldn't, but he seems to be more effective in Scotland and I'd be concerned about him being able to settle in this area.

    Although Scottish football has been a bit of a joke for a long time, I'd say their premier league is easily on a par with our championship.
    The standard this season has been mediocre to say the least, with no real stand out teams. Basically, Newcastle and Brighton have came out on top of a bore fest.

    Huddersfield, Brentford, Barnsley and Fulham have been decent sides as well - Wednesday were OK too

    There have been truly dreadful sides this year - Leeds, Reading, Wolves, Ipswich and Bristol were all dreadful to watch especially Reading

    The rest were much like our season - Meh.........

    There's no way the SPL is on a par with the championship.

    Celtic would be a championship side probably around the playoffs, literally every other side there would be worse than Rotherham.

    We are going to finish around the middle of the table, look at the teams in the middle of the SPL table. Partick and Kilmarnock - tell me how many players from those teams would get into our side?
    They are league one standard at best.

    It's all about opinions, but I do think you are trying to make the championship out to be something it's not. It's a very competitive and unpredictable division, but not because of quality.
    I f we played Patrick Thistle tomorrow and Celtic played Newcastle, I wouldn't be confident of either championship side coming out on top.

    How many partick players do you think would get into our side then? And vice versa

    I don't know much about Patrick's squad, and I'm guessing you don't either.
    I'm basing my opinion on what I've seen in the championship the last couple of seasons, along with the Scottish premiership games I've watched on TV.

    I'm basing my opinion on a model I'm building of relative strengths of different leagues based on player performances who have transferred between them. I have the SPL as a far weaker league than the championship.
    I put the championship in between the Dutch and Belgian leagues, the SPL is down with the Danish and league one.

    I would be genuinely interested to hear the opinions of the likes of Kris Burke, Don Cowley, Kenny Miller, Adam Mathews, David Marshall, Alan McGregor etc on this subject. They would obviously be able to give a much better perspective on it than you and I.

    I'd rather another punt at Tony Watt , if fit still owned by Charlton I think , however if Rhys Healey is ready in time at only at 22 ,he's the one I would invest time in ,before his injury he showed some promise.

    Simon Church scored 6 in 13 for Aberdeeen, the SPL is nowhere near the Championship

    Nobody is suggesting that, they are just saying that the SPL is markedly shitter

    I'd go as far to say, "that it looked like these matches contained 4 teams, that contained a certain amount of players that didn't want to attain promotion".

    But (NSASWB), that's another debate/argument/discussion

    The SPL is a strange one because there are some very good players up there but a lot of dross. I for one, would love to see Griffiths here. He scores goals and has clever movement. I don't think for a minute we'd be able to get him to come or afford him mind.
