There's probably some of that in it, but not in a nefarious way. He worked with him before and seems to genuinely like his attitude and knowledge, so perhaps out of hope as much as expectation he recommended him. People use their connections in this way all the time and in all walks of life. The difference is that in most walks of life there aren't hundreds of paying punters watching the new hire's every move.

Indeed. I still maintain that the reason why Adam Coakley was once signed for Morton was for a reason other than a footballing one, especially when he was signed and then released in the same close season by Partick Thistle before he joined us.

Also,

Sandy Easdale Jr. Different decade, different name - both had a rich daddy whom the chairmen were actively courting investment or sponsorship from.

Yeah yeah, and Jamie Vardy came from Stocksbridge Park. But for every one player like that, there's literally thousands who are at that level for a reason (e.g. Sam Ramsbottom.)
If your job is literally to train goalkeepers and also to scout talent, it's really not unreasonable to expect that you can spot one who's capable of holding onto a football.


Perhaps it's not about what you know, but who you know.

Do you think that maybe he is trying to do the young lad a favour?

Possibly a good guy, just a completely second-rate "scout".


You were making him sound like Barry Bennell's Alky twin last week, all because he found a keeper from the Ecky Thump leagues.

Don't forget, Pat Bonner Came from Kedue Rovers from Co. Donegal. :)

I'm the blind hut...


When they need blinds, you can give them a quote.

In the meantime, back to your usual contrary bollocks.
