Anyone got any info on Juan Alegria, seen a few reports that he was due to sign with us but then scored twice for Honka at the weekend?


1.) 10 Aug 2021 15:57:10
Record said soon, I have previously written January, I’m positive he is signing.


2.) 10 Aug 2021 16:12:52
John I did hear that we will sign him just now and leave him in Finland until January.


3.) 10 Aug 2021 16:23:00
Thanks lads, seems a really exciting prospect, hope we get him in.


4.) 10 Aug 2021 17:18:32
Ger since seen that was his 1st 2 goals in 16 games? And into b team.


5.) 12 Aug 2021 09:48:27
Worryingly we are looking at all these young lads to go into the B Team when our first team squad is falling way short of the quality we need. We can see that a number of players are now past their sell by date and others will inevitably be moving on but we simply don't have the quality in reserve and I have grave doubts that our DoF has the ability to bring in the quality we need, even if we had the money!

Heard that Rangers and Kai Kennedy are closing in on a deal. The lad has been told when his loan ends he will be part of the first team on similar basis as Patterson. Money issues almost sorted out with rangers wanting to prevent other clubs from negotiating with him come January.


1.) 17 Dec 2020 14:01:21
Hope so as inverness caley saying he's smashing and going past people for fun.


2.) 17 Dec 2020 14:51:38
ICT manager john robertson actually stated that kai kennedy was in style similar to both davie cooper and bud johnston 🤔I wish 🙏.


3.) 17 Dec 2020 15:01:20
That's some compliment SGL!
If he's half as good then I'll be a happy Ger! 👍.


4.) 17 Dec 2020 15:13:00
Kai Kennedy has a long long way to go b4 he can be compared to cooper or johnston.


5.) 17 Dec 2020 15:36:09
You normally watch a lot of the development team John25.
How do you rate him?


6.) 17 Dec 2020 15:46:30
So, no pressure on the boy then?


7.) 17 Dec 2020 16:32:45
Here’s hoping he can come back onboard with a new deal and the air cleared. He must be an upgrade on barker, Jones I rate but doesn’t have a future and same with Stewart. We need fresh competition in the wide areas. Kennedy and hagi backing up roofe and Kent. Aribo can do a job if required. I’d prefer we brought. In a proven player. But don’t know the financial situation.


8.) 17 Dec 2020 17:12:17
John25, that's for your good self and john robertson to argue the bit out, regarding the kennedy comparisons to coop and bud mate 🤔
Nothing at all to do with me!


9.) 17 Dec 2020 17:12:55
Mr PH he is a fantastic player who with hard work may make it. Never near a Cooper.


10.) 18 Dec 2020 00:12:38
The boy has a lot of potential and will make a living at the game. Will it be with Rangers? Time will tell, but he's absolutely nowhere near Cooper or wee Bud.


11.) 18 Dec 2020 07:11:08
Ur right tavson . The boys not even broke into the first yet and he's being compared to the late great davie cooper . Not even sure robertson meant he was even anywhere as good as them . But hopefully the lad breaks through and performs for us.


12.) 18 Dec 2020 08:19:50
Get since.

My understanding is that before talks broke down, he had been offered same as Patterson but used the fact that other teams were interested for more money. If he is that good Byern or Man City would of signed him. Just like gilmour left for Chelsea and dapos brother left for city.

I understand he might be a talent and I understand the lad might be looking after himself but in my eyes anyone who desperately wants to be here signs the contract like Patterson without issue.

After this, my opinion he’ll be gone at his soonest if he does break into team.


13.) 18 Dec 2020 10:26:23
I think a lot of you are missing the point Robertson said similar in style, he never said he thought he was the same level. He is a talented kid however and for me any news on a new deal is a promising step . He would definitely have had clubs interested in a pre contract in January.


14.) 18 Dec 2020 10:29:47
Good post klubfoot.
Never saw Robert comment, cambinger. Was just reading posts here.


15.) 18 Dec 2020 11:02:05
Klubdfut

I have had a similar opinion on the lad as well. I think he has influences on him out with football pushing him in the wrong direction and rangers broke off negotiations cause they thought they were closing in on a deal and goal posts were moved at the last minute. Jordan Campbell at the Athletic reported there was a change in who was representing him and Rangers are now back at the table.

Cambiger

That's spot on, Robertson wasnt saying Kennedy is as good as or on the same level as but he compared their styles of play and said he is a throwback to an older style of direct winger who likes to beat people. That was my take on it anyway.


16.) 18 Dec 2020 12:17:35
If he thinks he's worth it, he has every right to ask for what he thinks he's worth. Do I think he is? I don't know. Only time will tell.


17.) 18 Dec 2020 13:37:08
Wasn't he the one who Gerrard questioned his ego?


18.) 18 Dec 2020 13:40:05
Cambiger that’s exactly what a was going to say, now I’ve not seen the interview comments however common sense tells u he’s comparing styles that’s all. It’s like when u see a centre half coming through and they compared John stones to Rio or somebody in midfield being compared like Bentley with beckham, John robertson knows more about football than most so he’s not going to make outlandish comments.


19.) 18 Dec 2020 14:05:49
He was mr PH.


20.) 18 Dec 2020 23:20:11
The lad has a real chance of making a decent career in the game if he gets his head down and works. He def has the talent and right thru the age groups he’s been one of the best at both club and country, a young lad whose peers and coaches expected a lot, add in an agent whose contract expectations exceeded him and it grow a swagger . I hope he stays and full fills his early potential.

John25 You were spot on with your Alegria posts mate. Athletic just confirmed Rangers have agreed a fee for him.


1.) 19 Aug 2021 12:48:01
Into the b team? He not exactly hammering the goals in for clubs to sit up and take notice? Never seen him play like 99% of folk but your expecting better stats the way everybody is speakin about the kid.


2.) 19 Aug 2021 13:02:26
He has had a few sub appearances due to indicating he was leaving.


3.) 19 Aug 2021 13:08:06
Massive things expected from this lad, it’s an exciting signing.


4.) 19 Aug 2021 13:18:04
Paul he has played 500 minutes in 18 games.


5.) 19 Aug 2021 13:19:39
Paul86 that's what the Athletic are reporting mate, will join the B team and be assessed there similar to Charlie McCann.


6.) 19 Aug 2021 14:25:19
Paul gie the boy a chance stats ain’t everything lost players we sign ain’t got great stats maybe bar Alfredo.


7.) 19 Aug 2021 14:57:06
Yeah but everybody hammerimg bacuna yesterday or whoever else cause his stats aren't great? Were signing this guy for b team. 2 month ago folk had him going straight into 11 to replace morelos.


 

 

08 Jul 2021 22:03:44
Guys can anyone shed a light on what's happening with Kai Kennedy? He hasn't appeared in any of the training photos with the 1st team. Jordan Campbell of the Athletic has said that he is training with the B team but hasn't been named in any of the B teams squads for the previous friendlies. I had thought he would have been included in the 1st team squad after his successful loan. Just curious as to why we haven't seen him.


1.) 09 Jul 2021 08:50:37
Get unfit.


2.) 09 Jul 2021 09:20:30
John is he not fit? Injury?


3.) 09 Jul 2021 09:33:13
Fair enough John, thanks for the response.


4.) 09 Jul 2021 09:33:38
He, I think is is camera shy.


5.) 09 Jul 2021 10:41:23
Hope all is well with him and its a niggling injury or something not major, was just voted in young euro players of year team so can see him in our first team squad next yr possibly. Another loan may do him well. Aslong as he is still in our big picture 👌💙.


6.) 09 Jul 2021 11:51:36
This is just a complete guess (I have no info on it, just putting 2 and 2 together and looking at what John25 has just said) but Gerrard stated that he was happy with the condition of how the majority of the squad had returned from the summer break and most, except for a couple had come back with very good levels of fitness. Perhaps Kennedy was one of the ones he was alluding to that hadn’t? I only suggest this as we know he’s had a bit of an issue in the past with his attitude (thinking he’s bigger than he is) and if you look at his build he is quite short and stalky, the kind of build that probably needs to work harder on conditioning than others. It would then fit that he’s come back a bit over weight / out of condition and maybe been told to work on his own in his fitness before being brought back into the squad? Again I’m just totally guessing here and could be completely wrong. Just a thought though.


7.) 09 Jul 2021 12:41:10
He is at Murray park, I’m told working in gym. Not fit, don’t know reason hence I asked on here if anyone knew anything
Obviously not in squad for firhill or b team against Albion.


8.) 09 Jul 2021 12:48:41
I would guess it is more a case of he is recovering from the injury he sustained at the tail end of last season that ruled him out of the playoff games for Raith. Once fit I hope he gets a chance with the 1st team this preseason, he looks a player and I would love to see him developing into a 1st team regular.


9.) 09 Jul 2021 12:49:09
I think he is injured.


10.) 09 Jul 2021 13:33:15
Too many fish suppers I’m told.


11.) 09 Jul 2021 13:41:52
Cheers for reply’s re Kennedy guys.

I think the key for McPake and Kennedy this season is consistency. Both of them had great moments last season on their loan spells but disappeared at times.

Fair enough John. respect your input as always. would be a shame for the lad if his attitude holds him back because he certainly seems to have a lot of potential.

Really John I thought all that was media speculation, John Robertson and John McGLynn spoke highly of him and when he signed his new contract Ross Wilson spoke about a misrepresentation of the lad. Not saying you are wrong, I am just surprised.
