Prince Buaben

Signs a short term deal till January.

Will he shore up our midfield? Is Paton the ideal candidate to be dropped for the fresh Prince?

Great signing would have offered him a longer deal though.

Decent signing and surprised he wasn't attached as he can do us a job.

Also seem to remember he likes a tackle and is pretty mobile so hopefully he will replace Paton. This week's feel good factor is off-the-scale :lol:

It's not Willo Flood, so that's a start.

Only 30 & the sort of signing we badly need, at this moment in time. Only problem is, if successful, he can move on in Jan. Though short term deal may have been dictated by what's left in budget.

A couple of years back, I had the deep joy of being in the Tynecastle directors box when we inflicted their only defeat of the season at Tynecastle 2-3.
The winning goal came from us dispossessing Bauben just outside of his own penalty area.
All of the Hearts supporters that day were venting their spleen that day about how highly they rated him apart from him taking risks in and around his own box.
That was seen as the one big blind spot in his game.

If you look at what we have in midfield, even if he does have a fatal flaw in his game, he will be head and shoulders above anyone else in the midfield. A proper player at last. We are not going to be seeing Rodgers any time soon (if at all), but maybe November might see us with a Bauben/Rogers combo adding a bit of grit in the middle of the park. We shall see.
Hopefully the end of Paton in the starting line up.

The only Falkirk player to have scored a goal against Barcelona?

Remember the highlights well. What a header from John Clark, and Paul Sturrock was superb at the time. What I had forgotten though was that the smug Gary Lineker and forever moaning Mark Hughes were both playing - makes it even more enjoyable to watch once more

Really good story. Pity he didn't stay with us for longer and shame how his football career ended.

Best player on the park on Saturday until he went off injured at half time.

Need to get him fit as we will need players of his calibre if we are to avoid relegation this season.
Its not the taking part that counts......its the WINNING.

By the time he is fit, he could already be on his way out.

Every week, the likelihood of relegation is a wee bit more likely.
