    Default Billy McKay

    Anyone think he could be a good signing?

    Inverness manager has put a £1M price tag on him, top goalscorer in the SPL (true its only the SPL!) so could be worth a shout. Admittedly not seen a lot of him other than the usual highlight reels but on paper looks a good buy at a decent price.

    Could he play a lone striker role?

    No, I don't think he's very good, he seems to have hit a vein of flukeyness, yes he's scored but I just don't see him being good enough for where we are, or want to be, we have better than him here already IMO.

    We have a mutual family friend, may have to sound him out about the move. I rate him but I'm biased

    Not seen this guy play, but... on my FM save Forest bought him, he's scored 95 in 149 games and was top scorer 2 out of the 4 season he played in, including 32 in the 16/17 season, when we won the league. However, Darren Ferguson is our manager (Got us up in his second season) and Danny Welbeck is the best striker in the world so best taken with a pinch of salt.

    Always find top SPL goalscorers are tricky to assess whether they could gut it at this level. Take Russell and Griffiths who were banging them in for fun last season yet have both suffered dry spells back in the football league this season. I thought Russell would have been ideal for us but in only his second or third game he was talking about toughening up and the difference in this standard of football.

    Even Boydy found it difficult at Boro - although that was more down to Strachans inept management than anything.
