A guy who rarely got off the bench on the worst team in the Scottish Championship is unlikely to be a star

Here you could be wrong. Why would a Swedish third-tier goalgetter be any better than a former Canadian international?

 Marcus Haber is 30 in a few days and hasn't reached 60 career goals between club and country. He has never scored more than 12 goals in a season, and that was 10 years ago in USL. Marcus has actually only reached double digit scoring in a season 2 times in his career(12,10). As it stands he is not star material when you're talking about a striker. But with his build he could still have a big impact for a club, he will just have to find some sort of scoring form for me to consider him a star.

Geesh you are hard on a guy.  He got 9 goals in 27 games just 2 years ago in the scot premier league.  If we are supposed to be excited about Stphen Hoyle and the Swedish kid at York, why wouldnt Haber be considered a star??  He scored some beauts for Dundee over the years.  And it sounds like his wages werent very high so it wont be much of a pay cut.  Much more excited about that than some mid 30's chilean.

I don't feel like i'm being hard on Marcus at all. Unless a striker is banging in goals at a rate of or close to 1 every 2 games I can't consider them a "star" striker. He may have scored a goal every 3 games 2 seasons ago, but this season he has scored 0 goals in 17 games in a lower division. For club he scores every 6th game, and country every 9th game on average. Those numbers just don't back up a star tag. Can't we just be excited at the prospect of him returning to Canada without giving him an unjustified star tag?

Aleksa Markovic has been released by Zemun in Serbia.

Interesting player. He was getting quite some minutes I recall. Wonder if he'll try his luck elsewhere in Europe.

If you watch him play, he does the right things. His movement is good, he can hold up, he is experienced. So he is not a top flight killer, fine. I don't even know if he has much of a shot.

 I think if someone picks him up for CPL, depending of course how he is coached and the team is asked to play, he will be a bonus for the team. I just don't know if he'd want to go back to Canada so much to make 60 grand, which would be slim. I doubt he'd rate 70k the way we are hearing salaries line up. Maybe set him up with bonuses for performance.

Hamilton kid.  Would be a fantastic local signing for Forge FC.

Check out @smfc’s Tweet:

Was just looking up Oliver Minatel's old club and saw this.  Looks like Ethan Gage is reviving his career a little in Australia. 

Apparently had a great Cup run with a lower league team and got noticed.  South Melbourne not in A League but one of the most storied and successful clubs in Australia historically and have been trying to get into A League for years.

Nice to see.  By all accounts he was an outstanding youth player we had very high hopes for.
