Tom Taiwo

Tom Taiwo expected to sign a 2 year deal at Hamilton Accies.

A really nice guy and a great move for him after being released by Falkirk.
Its not the taking part that counts......its the WINNING.

Total professional. While he could never cover for the mess going on all around him, TT was the one guy you could bank on never to walk onto the pitch with a “I can’t be arsed” attitude even when there were days when he must have felt that he couldn’t be arsed.
While never close to the skill levels of Sibbald, TT gave everything he had to give in every game he played.
He deserves to be well remembered as a guy who gave 100% week in, week out. There were precious few last season who could claim the same.
I wish him all the best.

A surprising move - probably says more about the quality of the bottom half of the SPL than anything else.

Good luck to him though - gave his all for us.
If you're committed enough, you can make any story work. I once told a woman I was Kevin Costner, and it worked because I believed it.

2 year deal seems a bit optimistic.

Best of luck to Taiwo. Can’t help but think that’s a better deal for him than it is for Hamilton. No disrespect to the guy but he’s not good enough for SPL. If that is the calibre of player Hamilton are signing then Livi could well stay in the league.

Very grateful for all his hard work and efforts at Falkirk and wish him all the success in the world.

Maybe Hamilton are making the same mistakes we have been making for a few years now... Signing journeymen! Glad to see we are moving away from that.

Nice guy, whole hearted midfield disrupter, just a shame he had no-one along side him who could pass the ball forward.
