I believe he stated a few years ago that he wanted to eventually finish his career at Morton maybe he is heading back to Britain to eventually do it.

As much as I'd like to see it, his career has moved on even further than probably he even thought it would. Would be very surprised if it happened.

I’m not too clued up on the goings on when Fred left and whether the rumours are true but it’s at least nice to see a former player of ours who the majority thought was fantastic to go on to have a pretty decent career. Not sure if anyone can beat it in recent memory?

Much as I don’t like him, I must admit I found it ironic to see Forest fans on Twitter saying he’s not the level of player they should be looking at.

Considering Malmo are the very club that Forest beat in their first European Cup final and are not quite the force they once were, but are still good enough to compete in the relatively latter stages of European competition most seasons, I’d suggest that a club that’s festered in England’s second tier and below for 20 odd years should be pretty chuffed about bringing in a player of his calibre. Or at least should be in the position to have a bit of respect for a small club that haven’t reached their previous heights in recent years.

Aye I saw someone say they don't need him because they had Jack Colback ffs

I've never quite got the Fred hate. He was part of that relegated side, but who wasn't pish that year - even Sir Dougie Imrie flattered to deceive. Also played quite well at Parkhead on that famous night.

Do we still get transfer cut ?

We would get a very modest solidarity payment if he moved for a fee from one country (Association) to another. Solidarity payments comprise 5% of the total transfer fee payable by the buying club and are split between those clubs for which the player was registered between the ages of 12 and 23. So we had him from, I think, 20 to 23. Before that he was with PSG and whatever daft wee clubs he played for as a youth. So the 5% would be split between ourselves, PSG, and those youth clubs. It is weighted slightly in favor of later years: you get 5% of the 5% for each season aged 12-15, then 10% of the 5% for each subsequent year up to 23. So if we got him in June 2010, that was the season in which he turned 21. So multiply that by three, 30%. 30% of 5% is 1.5.

Long story short: assuming the transfer is a regular sale and we've done our paperwork, we'd get 1.5% of the buyer's fee, which in the case of a 600k GBP transfer is 9000 GBP.

Worth remembering that when we let the wee rat go to Ostersund we did have a sell-on fee, which got us a pretty penny. Around 150k GBP, if memory serves. Maybe our one good piece of transfer business in the last, what, 20 years? But you wouldn't get a secondary sell-on fee. That sell-on that OFK were bound to pay us is now history. Any sell-on agreement will now be between OFK and Malmo.

Getting money for Scott Tiffoney was...something, even if it did land us with Henk.

Thought we fucked that and just got a sell on fee there?

We might’ve actually. I’d expect him to have the same career path as Dykes, but backwards.

Robby McCrorie to be named in the Scotland squad tomorrow.

How many ex-ton players is that now that have been in the squads since 2010? McKay, Findlay, McCrorrie, Shankland...

 

Hilarious how bad some of them were on loan at us.

For all that McKay was bad with us, he clearly, obviously, blaringly was full of ability. He just had an absolutely crap attitude.

Findlay was a baller.

McCrorie, solid 'keeper, but I'll be surprised if he makes it to Scotland number one.

I would never, ever, ever have guessed that Shankland would go on to have a good career.

I’d argue that it’s a bit of a myth how bad they were with us- Findlay and McCrorie certainly weren’t, and much as they weren’t outstanding, it could be argued that McKay and Shankland weren’t exactly stinking the place out the way guys like O’Connor, Sampaio, Simmonds and Dykes did.
 

McKay’s record was 3 goals in 18 games (4 as a sub), including our only winning goal away from home (in the league!) that season. Perhaps because he went on to be Rangers’ most high profile asset for a time after not doing so much here, and it was under our noses as we were sharing a division with them, he’s looked upon as being really bad instead of just another who it didn’t really happen for.

Shankland had a similar record- again not great, and in contrast to his subsequent form at Ayr and Dundee United it was frustrating, as well as him managing to do a job on us for St. Mirren before he arrived, it’s easy to just say he was utter shite, but I don’t think that was necessarily the case.

Tl; dr- they didn’t exactly pull up trees here, but I think a bit of perspective about their time at the club should maybe be used from time to time. They weren’t that bad.

For sure im not counting findlay or McCrorrie as being rubbish, the latter was probably the most talented keeper we've had. 

 

Can see your point with the other two but they'll be judged by most against where they are now which maybe unfair but only natural

I wouldn't. He's 22, has about 100 professional first team appearances and has already played in just about every tier of the SPFL. Now an established premiership keeper. Who else is ready to make the step up when Gordon, McGregor and Marshall retire?


 

Peter Weatherson is the greatest player since Ritchie, and should be assigned 'chairman for life'
